The Biden administration is engaged in an active cover-up to shield sexually deviant teachers from the alleged sexual abuse of students, according to the proposed rollback of the Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights 2021-2022 Civil Rights Data Collection, proposed on Nov. 18, 2021. This effort allows teachers to be reassigned to other locations without being reported, like the Catholic Church’s international scandal wherein it conducted the same horrendous behavior with its priests.
The ultimate effect of these reassignments makes it difficult for parents to know about the alleged criminal behavior of teachers, which is unacceptable.
This move by the Biden administration follows U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland’s assault on parents who dare to exercise their First Amendment rights at local school board meetings to protect their children. Whistleblower documents strongly suggest Mr. Garland misled Congress about the collusion between the National School Board Association, the White House and the Department of Justice to target parents at school board meetings as domestic terrorists. This is scandalous behavior.
Children are our nation’s treasure. Whoever guides the children controls the future. Notwithstanding the 2,000 plus children aborted daily in the womb in the U.S., it is clear the left — President Biden included — is pulling out all the stops to ensure the state has more influence on these remaining children than their own parents.
Our nation woke up to an example of this pernicious agenda when we learned that Jackson Sparks, 8 years old, became the sixth victim of an incident where police say Darrell Brooks Jr., drove his SUV through the Waukesha, Wisconsin, Christmas parade.
Mr. Brooks, convicted of threatening to bomb a Las Vegas casino and having sex with a minor in 2006, was out on $1,000 cash bail for charges including domestic abuse. Mr. Brooks’ freedom was the intended consequence of far-left-wing policies of George Soros-funded District Attorneys who disfavor incarceration. This is a colossal failure in the criminal justice system and is the direct cause of this tragic loss of life.
The erosion of the societal mandate to protect children extends beyond the criminal justice system. The erosion is also clear in education and the health care spheres. Children are no longer safe in the hands of school administrators or appointed medical professionals, like White House Chief Medical Adviser Anthony Fauci, most of whom reside within the radical left.
I recently met a young high school girl in Indiana who revealed the divisive instruction occurring in her school. She said to her mother, “Mommy, they are teaching us to worship Black people.” This young lady is the victim of the indoctrination by the left in public schools that promote critical race theory.
Moreover, despite the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s statements that children are at the lowest risk of contracting and spreading the coronavirus, we now see vaccines approved for children ages 5-11. However, according to the CDC, there were only 210 COVID-19 related deaths nationwide in this age group. This is not a national crisis for children, in my view.
Government intrusion on our children in education and medical treatment is no longer driven by the “best interests of the child”; politics has taken over. Two good men started the heavy lift to stop this madness.
Both Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri and Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita are rebuilding the fence of protection around our children.
Mr. Hawley introduced the Parents’ Bill of Rights Act on Nov. 16, 2021, to defend a parent’s right against efforts to shut them out of their children’s education, providing a way for parents to sue federally-funded schools. However, this bill is unlikely to advance in a radical left majority in the House.
On the other hand, Mr. Rokita introduced a new Parents’ Bill of Rights for Hoosier parents on Nov. 22. He stated, “We have a right to make decisions on and consent to care and medical treatment of our children, including in a school setting.” The Office of the Attorney General added, “Our participation in our children’s education is the most critical factor in assuring school accountability under the law.”
This bill of rights is an example that all attorneys generals should follow.
Suppose we do not actively participate in building the fence of protection around our children right now at the local, state and federal levels. In that case, our children will continue to be mowed down in the streets by criminals who should be in jail, indoctrinated in our schools with racist curricula, and jabbed in their arms with a vaccine against parental wishes.
