Despite the fact that Republican leaders in the state rolled over to the political left and voted to remove the Children of the Confederacy plaque from the Texas State House, polling shows that Texan voters overwhelmingly support historical monuments in the state.

“Texans back monument protection by 64-26, with support from 60% of Hispanics and 35% of African-Americans,” said a memo by the Courageous Conservatives PAC.

According to the poll, 11 percent of black voters and 14 percent of Hispanic voters were undecided. A full two-thirds of Spanish-speaking Texan voters support preserving the monuments.

The poll comes in the wake of a unanimous vote by spineless GOP leaders in Texas to remove the confederate plaque. Unsurprisingly, the GOP establishment in Texas is out-of-touch with voters.

“The board’s governing members, which include Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Speaker Dennis Bonnen, voted on Friday to take the plaque down,” according to The Dallas Morning News.

All three Republican leaders constructed a scenario that allowed the plaque to be removed using a questionable interpretation of law by Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton in which he deemed the decision to be within the purview of the State Preservation Board.

But not all Republican lawmakers in Texas are so weak-kneed.

Rep. James White, R-Hillister, a black man, is fighting along with colleagues “to mandate that the location of relocated monuments must be approved by the Legislature, the Texas Historical Commission or the State Preservation Board.” They want to make sure that any historical monuments that are moved end up in places of prominence, so that history is not simply erased on a whim. White put forth a bill called the “Texas Hero Protection Act.”

White reportedly said that the bill “would protect a monument or picture of Jefferson Davis just as much as it would protect a monument or a picture of the Buffalo Soldiers.”

Washington Democrats Seek To Push LGBT Sex Ed For Kindergarteners

Shameless.

Published

on

Democrats in the state of Washington are now seeking to institute a statewide LGBT-focused sex ed program that would be taught to students ranging from kindergarten to high school.

House Bill 2184 would institute “comprehensive sexual health education” in Washington’s public schools by the year 2022.

A parental watchdog group in the state is raising the alarm, calling out the progressive legislation for its marketing of adult sexuality to children.

Another post from the Informed Parents of Washington revealed some of the sexually explicit content the sex ed program has lined up for sixth graders.

A program of sex ed that is taught to kindergarteners may be unprecedented in national American public education, especially considering it’s slated to include morally controversial topics such as homosexuality.

A survey by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction revealed that Washington parents are overwhelmingly opposed to the notion of teaching sex ed to kids as young as kindergarteners. More than 10,000 responses have been recorded, and over 58% of Washingtonians are opposed to the notion of youth sex ed.

But the state’s Democratic government is fine with simply ignoring the will of parents with children in public schools, plowing ahead with the sex ed program regardless of public sentiment.

A Republican legislator, Michelle Cardier, described the program’s content as “completely inappropriate” in a radio interview. “I think that if it is inappropriate for me to say [at the state house], I don’t think that’s something that I would want to teach a kindergartner.”

97 people have signed up to testify at the Washington House of Representatives in regards to the controversial sex ed, proposal, but only 16 are being allowed to because of time restraints.
