Videos: Parents Accuse School Boards Of ‘Promoting Suicide’ With Creepy Corporate Run ‘Social Emotional Learning’ Schemes

They also warn the scheme is a “trojan horse” for Critical Race Theory and a “gateway to the LGBTQ agenda”

Concerned parents have slammed school officials for “promoting suicide” among children by amplifying a so called ‘Social Emotional Learning’ agenda that is obsessed with encouraging kids that it is normal to have and to openly discuss mental health illnesses and to feel like they were born as the wrong gender.

The SEL scheme is often traced back to a 1995 book titled ‘Emotional Intelligence’ by academic Daniel Goleman, who argued that schools focus too much on intellectual achievement, and not enough on emotional development and empathy.

However, parents are now arguing that SEL has evolved into indoctrination, and that government run schools have no place getting involved with their children’s emotional and mental wellbeing.

In a recent school board hearing, a Southlake Texas mother, Tara Eddins, called for an end to the program in her children’s school, claiming that it ‘advertises suicide’.

Eddins asked school officials “Why are we hiring counsellors grades five through 12 at $90k a pop?”

“Counsellors need to get back to the business of prepping our kids for higher learning. Not promoting suicide,” she urged, adding “These kids are trying to get through the day – get through compacted math, algebra, go to cotillion on Sunday – they are not thinking about these issues.”

Watch:

Parents in Indiana also recently argued that SEL is a “dangerous gateway to the LGBT agenda,” with schools encouraging children to question their sexuality:

Parents’ activist groups have also warned that “profiteer consulting groups” are being brought in by schools to replace traditional school counselors.

Asra Nomani, the vice president of Parents Defending Education told NBC News “What we need to do is to separate the authenticity of social and emotional learning from the activist, divisive agendas of profiteer consulting groups that are basically using our children to increase their bottom line.”

Nomani added that the SEL agenda “took a turn in the summer of 2020, after the tragedy of George Floyd’s killing,” adding that it has become “a vehicle for this quote-unquote ‘social justice activism’ and the indoctrination of controversial ideas related to race, sexuality and even gender and identity.”

Another parents activist group, No Left Turn in Education, has warned that SEL “sets students up to be ‘counseled’ to believe things that go against what their parents have taught them.”

“There are parents who raise their children with traditional family values and a biblical worldview only to have that shattered by adults in authority at school. Do you see it?” The group wrote in a recent Facebook post.

the post continued, “SEL is dangerous. It may not lead to a sexual assault by an adult, but it will likely lead to some serious mental health struggles for many young people.”

“Look at the staggering number of very young women who now identify as transgender or gender fluid. Have you wondered why this is? SEL is not the only cause, but it is certainly contributing to some of the identity issues of our day,” the group further warned.

As we noted last week, a new poll by Arizona Christian University has found that 39 per cent of 18-24 year olds now identify as LGBTQ.

previous poll by Gallup found that 5.6 per cent of all adult Americans now identify as LGBTQ, up from 4.5 per cent in 2017.

The fact that the number has inflated so significantly in recent years clearly indicates it is being driven by social and cultural engineering.

The results of the Gallup poll also indicated that the rise was largely due to more people identifying as “bisexual.”

However, as journalist Glenn Greenwald noted, “The vast majority of them in long-term relationships are in opposite-sex relationships (33%) rather than same-sex ones (3.7%). So 10 times more people who identify as “bi” live in hetero-appearing relationships than gay/lesbian ones.”

In other words, the cultural cache of claiming to be part of ‘LGBTQ’ when these people aren’t even in LGBTQ relationships is too tempting to resist.

The Foundations of Freedom report also noted that “The proportion of young adults who identify as LGBTQ is roughly three times the proportion identified among the combined older adults of the nation.”

In addition, the fact that mental illness and depression is statistically higher amongst people who identify as LGBT raises the question of the damage that the amplification of such lifestyles by the culture is doing to young people.

Parents nation-wide have found themselves under attack by leftists and even government entities over recent weeks after taking on school officials over issues including Critical Race Theory and gay porn literature in schools.

As Tucker Carlson recently detailed, the Biden administration is using the Department of Justice and the FBI to target parents who refuse to go along with its medical mandates and teaching of such ‘social justice’ theories in schools.

    Segregation Is Back: Canadian Theatre Running ‘Black Only’ Events

    The theatre claims that the events will “allow for conversation and participation to be felt throughout the theatre,” but apparently not if you’re white

    A prominent theatre in Canada has received backlash for promoting a series of events that are billed for “black only” audiences.

    Critics charged that The National Arts Center in Ottawa is operating a segregationist policy after it announced that some events would be run under a “Black Out,” meaning that only black people can attend.

    “A Black Out is an open invitation to Black-identifying audiences to come and experience performances with their community,” the National Arts Center’s website states, adding “The evenings will provide a dedicated space for Black theatergoers to witness a show that reflects the vivid kaleidoscope that is the Black experience.”

    Further productions at the theatre are scheduled to operate a black-only admission policy throughout the 2023-24 season. 

    Journalist Jonathan Kay pointed out that the first upcoming event, a show called Is God Is was previously labelled as for ‘black identifying’ audiences, but was swiftly updated to a full black only event.

    The theatre claims that the events will “allow for conversation and participation to be felt throughout the theatre,” and will give audiences the opportunity to “experience the energy of the NAC with a shared sense of belonging and passion.”

    Apparently not if you’re White, Asian or anything other than black though.

    Ironically, on the NAC website there is a notification stating “We would like to recognize the Algonquin Anishinabeg Nation, on whose traditional unceded territory the National Arts Centre is located. We gratefully acknowledge them as the past, present and future stewards of this land.

    Presumably they are also precluded from the black only events.

    Responding to the criticism, Annabelle Cloutier, executive director of strategy and communications for the NAC claimed “There are no racially segregated shows at the NAC.”

    Sure seems like there are.

    “There will be no checkpoints for Black Out night ticket holders and no questions will be asked about anyone’s identity, race or gender,” Cloutier confusingly added.

    Video: Dem Rep Lauds Bill To Make It Criminal For White People To Criticise Non White People

    Implies Tucker Carlson could be prosecuted for speaking out against legislation

    Democratic Representative Sheila Jackson Lee suggested Monday that Tucker Carlson could be the first to be prosecuted under legislation she has introduced that would see any white person talking about ‘replacement theory’ be criminalized.

    As previously noted, the legislation, known as The Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023, would categorise any speech that is found to have “inspired” a racially motivated crime as a ‘hate crime’.

    The draconian law would effectively make an individual responsible for someone else’s crime if prosecutors were able to successfully argue that their political rhetoric was a motivating factor.

    The bill also targets speech that “vilifies or is otherwise directed against any non-white person or group” on social media.

    If such content is “read, heard, or viewed by a person who engaged in the planning, development, preparation or perpetration of a white supremacy inspired hate crime,” even if misinterpreted, the creator of such content is guilty of conspiracy.

    Appearing on perpetual race baiter Joy Reid’s show, Jackson Lee was asked “Does this bill allow potential prosecution of people like Tucker Carlson?”

    “Because he is one of the people who promotes white supremacist ideology,” Reid further claimed.

    “The bill has nothing to do with speech,” Lee asserted, adding “I was thinking about the pledge of allegiance and it says justice and equality for all. and I would offer to say that everyone deserves justice and equality.”

    “It seems that the right wing extremists, the violent extremists, don’t want that to happen,” she further suggested.

    “This does not criminalize speech,” she persisted, further claiming “It’s a crime bill, a criminal law bill, which means that intent would have to be proved that what generated out of that speech– or your intent was to provoke someone to violence and that a violent act did occur. [If] Mr. Carlson or anyone else chooses to speak in ugly terms, his speech is protected.”

    Watch:

    Lee also claimed that under the legislation, non-white people could also be prosecuted if they advocate for “white supremacy.”

    “It also is not a guarantee that white supremacy is promoted only by people who happen to be Caucasian,” Lee said, further proclaiming that “It is a philosophy, it is a philosophy and a point of view of that [FBI] Director [Chris] Wray has spoken about now for almost three years — that white supremacy is the largest part of domestic terrorism and domestic terrorism is larger than our fears of years back of Al-Qaeda.”

    While the bill faces certain failure and would never be ratified by the Supreme Court, it’s clear that the intent of the legislation is to target and silence people like Tucker Carlson, who has built a massive audience on the back of highlighting how crazy Democratic proposals such as this very one are.

    Carlson castigated the legislation last week, noting that “This single bill would do more to criminalize speech … than any other piece of legislation that has been proposed in the entire history of this country.”

    Washington Post Corrects OpEd Conflating Lack Of Black Argentinian Footballers With ‘History Of Black Erasure’

    Author falsely claims that a third of the country used to be black

    The Washington Post has been forced to issue a correction to an op-ed that asked ‘Why doesn’t Argentina have more black players in their World Cup lineup?’ after Argentinian people pointed out that the country is overwhelmingly white and not obsessed with virtue signalling about race.

    The piece claimed that it is a ‘myth’ that Argentina is a white nation, with the author Erika Denise Edwards, an associate professor at the University of Texas at El Paso, suggesting her rantings uncover a “history of Black erasure in Argentina.”

    In the piece Edwards argues that in the 18th century, a third of Argentina’s population was black and that since then there has been an agenda to ‘whiten’ the country.

    “They believed that to join the ranks of Germany, France and England, Argentina had to displace its black population — both physically and culturally,” she further asserts.

    She also points to census figures from 2010, claiming they prove that “roughly one percent” of Argentina’s population of 46 million is black.

    After people pointed out that this is just not true, The Washington Post issued a correction noting that the actual number was “far less than” one percent.

    Others noted that real life isn’t a Disney movie where each character is a different race:

    Translation: “The stupid note from [Washington Post] about the lack of blacks in the Argentine team left me disgusted. The United States is obsessed with race, Argentina is not. The United States chose to keep them separate, Argentina mixed them. But they insist on exporting their neuroses.”

    Remarkably, Edwards has doubled down, stating that nothing she wrote is factually incorrect:

    The obsession with diversity and race in national sports is purely an American and British phenomenon. People in other countries are not concerned with obsessing about skin colour over skill and talent.
