Since we are allowing people to identify as what they wish and Twitter is now censoring members of congress and even news organizations who dare say otherwise I think it’s prudent to ask this question:

If Rachel Levine tomorrow decides to identify as Napoleon Bonaparte, chooses to dress like Napoleon, gets surgically altered to look like Bonaparte and gains a following of people who choose to conform to said identify, Will you lock out any account that doesn’t cry “Vive L’Empereur” when demanded by Levine or any of those who conform to this new identity?

If not why not?

Two weeks ago, the Biden regime issued a directive siccing the Department of Justice on concerned parents, who dare to speak out against progressive indoctrination, at school board meetings.  For more information on this despicable abuse of power and abuse of the Constitution, please check out this article, which I wrote. 

My article was outclassed by this letter from Moms for America.  I really believe the Biden regime completely underestimated the level of outrage their unconscionable dictate would generate from concerned parents, who were already outraged by the obscene level of progressive indoctrination that has infected schools all across the United States.

Here is the heart of the letter from Moms for America.

The recent letter from the National School Boards Association (NSBA) to the Biden Administration and subsequent statement from the Department of Justice likening concerned parents to domestic terrorists is a direct threat to mothers and our constitutionally protected rights.

The United States Constitution is the law of the land, and the federal government, by law, must operate within the confines of the Constitution.  The Department of Justice has no authority to limit the speech or assembly of concerned mothers addressing their state and local school boards or dictate to local law enforcement to inhibit a mother’s right to do so. If the NSBA truly has the interests of our children’s safety and education in mind, they would welcome the input of parents addressing concerns instead of seeking the federal government’s aid in silencing them.

Moms are justifiably angry. Our children are being exposed to inappropriate sexual content, gender indoctrination, anti-family, and anti-American propaganda, and the tenets of critical race theory – all under the NSBA indoctrination umbrella of Social Emotional Learning (SEL). Our nation’s children are being taught to hate their country, hate their neighbor, and hate themselves.

Moms are showing up in schoolboard meetings across the country to protest these radical ideas being thrust on their children, calling for a return to a classical liberal arts education where children can learn to think for themselves.  We want real science, true history, and classical education that teaches kids to read, write, calculate, and be good citizens. That doesn’t make us domestic terrorists; it makes us responsible parents.

These are our children.  Parents’ rights are fundamental and supreme. Elected officials and school administrators must recognize and respect this fundamental right.  Schools, as well as other community and government organizations, are designed to support the family unit, not replace or regulate it. As stated in the Declaration of Mothers, which was introduced into the Congressional Record in 2018,  “No association or government organization can replace the family no matter how well-intentioned or well-designed it may be.”

While NSBA accuses moms of shutting down school board meetings with disorderly conduct, it is, in most cases, school board members that shut down public comment and even restrict it altogether when they do not like what moms have to say.

It is not parents, but rather the National School Boards Association and their state affiliates that are the real threat to our children through their stranglehold on public education.

The National School Boards Association and their state affiliates have become an immediate threat to our constitutionally protected rights as mothers as well as the physical, mental, and emotional health of our children. NSBA and their state affiliates work directly with the Teachers Unions, Superintendents Association, and the National Association of State Boards of Education to lobby union agendas that endanger the health and well-being of our children, usurp parental authority, and ensure superintendents and school board members toe the union line. And they do so with public funds.

Moms for America are absolutely correct about the fact the Department of Justice has no constitutional authority to intervene in what are purely local instances of parents expressing their outrage over what is taking place in their children’s schools.  The parents speaking at these meetings are most definitely exercising their God-given natural rights of freedom of speech, freedom to assemble, and freedom to petition; all of which are protected by the First Amendment.

All totalitarian regimes, such as the Nazis and the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, focus their indoctrination efforts on children.  Their goal is inculcate children whith beliefs that are radically different from those of their parents.  Progressives here in the United States are doing the same to public school children all across this nation.  Parents are rightfully upset about this.

All leftist philosophies believe that children belong to the state rather than to their parents.  Stemming from this is the belief that parents have no right to determine what their children are taught.  Progressives here in the United States, also being totalitarians, share this deeply mistaken belief.  If you question this, check out these statements by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.  In the United States parents have always been the supreme authorities when it comes to making decisions for their children, not the almighty state.  Parental rights is the nearest thing to an absolute in the country.  It has always been that way.  Progressives are seeking to topple this.  Moms for America are perfectly right to rage against this in their letter, If more parents spoke out in this manner and organized into groups such as Moms for America, this indoctrination would soon end.

Yesterday I had some time on my hands and watched the Dave Chappelle special and came away thinking these things:

If this had been the days of my youth this special would never had made it on the air, not because of the Transgender jokes but because the absolutely vulgar sexual humor all over the place. It was about as gross and disgusting as you can get and it really says something about how our society has changed that I seem to be the only person who has pointed this out.


What really gets me about the gross stuff is that like Monty Python Chappelle’s humor is actually very intelligent humor and he doesn’t need to go with the gross stuff to be funny. Furthermore a lot of the gross humor wasn’t all that good in the sense that it couldn’t have been more telegraphed if he had been sitting behind a desk in a Western Union office in 1877.

That being said his audience liked it and I’m remined of Eddie Murphy’s famous bit about Bill Cosby calling him on being vulgar and Richard Pryor’s response.

For those who don’t want to hear the whole clip here is what Murphy said Pryor said to him about Bill Cosby chastising him over the dirty humor:

I don’t give give a f*** what every the f*** makes people laugh say that shit. Do the people laugh when you say what you say?

I said Yes

Do you get paid?

I said Yes

Well tell Bill I said have a Coke and smile and shut the f*** up. That Jello pudding eating M*****f*****..

Given what we now know about Bill Cosby this Eddie Murphy clip is a lot funnier and highly ironic, but Bill would answer that he never drugged a woman on stage in front of an audience.

Dave Chapple’s job is to make people laugh and he is very good at it and if people are laughing at the jokes and he’s getting paid millions then he’s doing his job even if he gets too gross for me. As for anything else, that’s between him and Christ and I wish him the best of luck there.


That brings up another thing about Chappelle that reminds me of Monty Python and Don Rickles, he hits everybody and makes fun of Everybody and is gross about EVERYBODY. There were no sacred cows to Monty Python and Don Rickles hit people, including the autocancel to their faces. Chappelle takes this to the Nth degree I mean he was making glory hole jokes about Martin Luther King. MARTIN LUTHER KING!

Can you imagine any other comedian making glory hole jokes about Martin Luther King on a stage? Can you imagine what would happen if I got up on a stage on a comedy night and tried to make a joke about Martin Luther King concerning sleeping around let alone glory holes. I’d be up against a wall.

And you think the transgender stuff is over the line?


One of the reasons why he does these things and also breaks all the other rules (for example smoking in places where I would be fined for doing so) is to distract people as he delivers his message, and his message seems to be:

Don’t be telling black people about how oppressed you are when we were friggin slaves and went through all we went through to get where we are now.

His answer to the Trans community claiming oppression reminds me of a story Tip O’Neill told about a group of black activists who came to congress and was berating a white congressman who had grown up poor in during the Great Depression in the era before government safety nets and answered: “Don’t come to my office and talk down it me. I was poor when poor was POOR!” Go deep into these specials and that, in my opinion is pretty much what Chappelle’s entire standup humor is about, but the bottom line is it’s still humor that makes you laugh and makes him money.

His answer to Trans activists talking about the oppression of their people was to ask if they kidnapped them and dragged them here from Transylvania.


Ironically Chappelle uses his status as one of the richest and most popular living comics to exercise privilege not only do do or say things that others can’t say without being hit by society but to flaunt said privilege, the privilege of wealth, the privilege of celerity and the privilege of race to advance pretty much a left liberal/radical worldview with a streak of libertarianism and a commitment to the 1st amendment . Even more ironically he does this while living in what would be considered a conservative leaning lifestyle in a white small town.

Dave Chappelle is actually is the personification of privilege he knows he has it and intends to make you know he has it and is going to use it. The reason why this said privilege doesn’t get me all that riled up is he earned said privilege with decades of hard work and a lot of nights in small clubs busting his ass to make people laugh and he does it as well if not better than any current living comedian. That is in fact the American dream.

The final irony is the the reason why he has this dream is that hundreds of years ago a black slaver caught one of his ancestors and sold said ancestor to a ship master headed for the new world allowing him the ultimate privilege that the decedents of that slaver can only dream of, growing up in America.

It is safe to say that all across the United States parents are outraged.  They are outraged at the incessant progressive indoctrination that their children are subjected to on a daily basis.  This indoctrination has infected just about every school in this nation.  It exists in so many different forms, the most nauseating form is Critical Race Theory.  Parents are also rightly outraged over Coronavirus restrictions, such as mask mandates and vaccine mandates. 

To combat this progressive indoctrination and Coronavirus mandates parents are exercising three of their most important God-given natural rights: freedom of speech, freedom to petition, and freedom to assemble.  Parents are attending school board meetings to express their outrage at what is going on.  Most often the school boards simply ignore the concerned parents. Couple this with the obscene level of insidious indoctrination, you get a large number of very outraged parents attending school board meetings, resulting in very heated school board meetings.  At these meetings a small number of parents have crossed over the line into unlawful behavior. None of these isolated incidents have escalated beyond a point where local authorities could easily handle.  All of these incidents have been very isolated and have taken place at local school board meetings.  No provision of the Constitution gives the federal government the slightest authority to investigate or intervene in any of these incidents.  Despite the lack of authority United States Attorney General Merrick Garland issued this MEMORANDUM FOR DIRECTOR, FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION DIRECTOR, calling on the FBI to stick its nose into this purely local phenomenon.  Here is the justification for this unconstitutional and unwarranted intrusion

In recent months, there has been a disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff who participate in the vital work of running our nation’s public schools. While spirited debate about policy matters is protected under our Constitution, that protection does not extend to threats of violence or efforts to intimidate individuals based on their views.

Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values. Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety.

This is a whole load of equine excrement.  There has been no spike in harassment and intimidation across the US at school board meetings.  All of these incidents together do not even come close to matching all the intimidation, harassment, and outright violence perpetrated by BLM, ANTIFA, or any other darlings of the political left, not even remotely in the same universe.  All of the actual leftwing violence has been steadfastly ignored by the Biden regime and the FBI.

The parents who are speaking out at these meetings are right wingers who speaking out against the nonsense being perpetrated by the political left.  That is why they are being targeted now by the Biden regime.

Here is the plan outlined in this odious memorandum.

The Department takes these incidents seriously and is committed to using its authority and resources to discourage these threats, identify them when they occur, and prosecute them when appropriate. In the coming days, the Department will announce a series of measures designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel.

Coordination and partnership with local law enforcement is critical to implementing these measures for the benefit of our nation’s nearly 14,000 public school districts. To this end, I am directing the Federal Bureau of Investigation, working with each United States Attorney, to convene meetings with federal, state, local, Tribal, and territorial leaders in each federal judicial district within 30 days of the issuance of this memorandum. These meetings will facilitate the discussion of strategies for addressing threats against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff, and will open dedicated lines of communication for threat reporting, assessment, and response.

All of this is being done for one reason, to silence opposition to all of the leftwing garbage that has infected our public school system.  This one sided and purely political attack by a federal government law enforcement agency goes against everything the United States stands for.

You might be wondering why the Biden regime chose to undertake this unconstitutional and unconscionable attack on parents speaking out against progressive indoctrination and mandates.  It was done in response to this letter from the National School Boards Association.  That association is a large and vocal leftwing lobbying group.  By comparing the text of NSBA letter and the text of the Garland memorandum anyone can see who the Biden regime takes its marching orders from.

America’s public schools and its education leaders are under an immediate threat. The National School Boards Association (NSBA) respectfully asks for federal law enforcement and other assistance to deal with the growing number of threats of violence and acts of intimidation occurring across the nation. Local school board members want to hear from their communities on important issues and that must be at the forefront of good school board governance and promotion of free speech. However, there also must be safeguards in place to protect public schools and dedicated education leaders as they do their jobs.

NSBA believes immediate assistance is required to protect our students, school board members, and educators who are susceptible to acts of violence affecting interstate commerce because of threats to their districts, families, and personal safety. As our school boards continue coronavirus recovery operations within their respective districts, they are also persevering against other challenges that could impede this progress in a number of communities. Coupled with attacks against school board members and educators for approving policies for masks to protect the health and safety of students and school employees, many public school officials are also facing physical threats because of propaganda purporting the false inclusion of critical race theory within classroom instruction and curricula. 1 This propaganda continues despite the fact that critical race theory is not taught in public schools and remains a complex law school and graduate school subject well beyond the scope of a K-12 class.
