LGBTQ Agenda will be Forced on Illinois Children

Identity Politics Gone Wild! So what if reading, writing and arithmetic suffer. As long as our children know some figure from history was gay or dressed up like a woman. After all – what’s more important?

American History: LGBTQ Edition

A new Illinois law requires Illinois schools to teach kids of all ages about the contributions of the LGBTQ community, the Chicago Tribune reported last month. Illinois Gov. J. B. Pritzker signed the Inclusive Curriculum Law August 9; it mandates that public schools teach students as early as possible about contributions lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people have made to U.S. state and national history. The details about why it passed and who passed it demonstrate just how much the LGBTQ lobby is targeting children to focus on a specific ideology, excluding others — with taxpayer dollars.

What the Illinois law mandates

While the bill passed handily in both the Illinois state House and Senate (60-42 and 37-17, respectively), its sponsors left it purposely vague. The Inclusive Curriculum Law simply says the teaching of U.S. and Illinois history in public schools “shall include a study of the roles and contributions of” LGBTQ people without specifying just how this should be done. read more

LGBTQ Rights are more Special than Yours

What has been the clarion cry of the left? Of course it’s been one of disenfranchisement. They are the oppressed – the bullied – the back-of-the-bus riders.

And for years we on the right have heard that various left-leaning groups just want to be treated as equals – but that Jim Crow conservatives (that’s all conservatives, by the way) are holding these factions down.

We right-wingers have always been confused by this. We are the true, live and let live Americans. We are the ones who espouse equal rights for all, special rights for none.

But that has never been good enough for the left, particularly today, as they become increasingly radicalized. The left doesn’t want equal rights. They do in fact demand special rights for every new subset of the left.

Women and “people of color” did receive the equal rights they deserved. Yet it didn’t stop there. It never does with the left. Women now receive guilt-ridden special rights by virtue of Title IX carve-outs. People of color received affirmative action carve-outs. Both are special rights, afforded to no other groups. Hardly the equal rights that their forefathers and mothers so reasonably demanded. read more

Is the Rainbow Flag’s Orange Stripe a Shout Out to Trump

A couple of days ago, The Blaze reported that the city of Philthadelphia “Office of LGBT affairs” has recently unfurled a new flag – the multi-colored rainbow LGBTQ+ flag. They just keep adding more letters – and now even a symbol. Talk about a run-on acronym.

So Philadelphia, which has a total debt of $14.3 billion, or $27,500 per taxpayer (the third highest per capita in the nation), has enough money to fund an Office of LGBT Affairs for what is claimed to be 3.9 percent of its population. And I doubt the percentage is that high.

Anyway, the Run-On Acronym Society (ROAS) claims the new and improved rainbow flag will “show their support for people of color [POC] who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender. We say that we’re inclusive. We celebrate it. Now it’s time to go further.”

The colors they added to show solidarity with the POC are of course brown and black. This may seem inclusive, but to me, this instead shows how racist the ROAS really is, that other-than-hetero POC don’t and can’t identify with the pretty colors that already adorn the flag. read more
