The president of the largest teacher’s union in the country, the National Education Association, read two books promoting transgenderism to a class of kindergartners in Virginia last week.
Lily Eskelen Garcia read from the books I am Jazz and Julian is a Mermaid to the class of young children at Ashlawn Elementary School in Arlington, Virginia. She was joined by trans activist Sarah McBride, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2016 in support of transgender ideology.
I am Jazz is a “children’s book” about a “trans child.” Garcia read in detail about the notion of transgenderism to the audience of children, presenting the concept to impressionable children who don’t know any better. The National Education Association tweeted about the event:
The trans ideology book reading represents the latest in an alarming introduction of trans activism in schools. Increasingly cultural progressives seek to popularize the concept of transgenderism among children, including those who have not yet undergone the life-altering process of puberty.
This could be a factor in spiking rates of children seeking to identify as the opposite sex, in many cases reversing their decision after their bodies undergo the changes that naturally occur as they grow older.
However, in some incredibly shocking cases, children of young ages are undergoing potentially life-changing hormone therapy.
Some serious medical organizations have spoken out to condemn diagnosis and “treatment” of gender dysphoria among children, as a threat to the well-being and identity of children who don’t know any better.
The American College of Pediatricians released a statement rebuking hormonal treatment on supposed trans kids as “mass experimentation.”
Cultural progressives will take no heed and will continue to peddle their destructive and downright sick propaganda with the hopes of rewiring the brains of innocent children to accept it.
City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”
There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.
The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”
“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.
Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.
The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.
Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”
Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.
Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
