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.

    Video: Reporter, Academics Claim The Word ‘Looting’ Is Racist

    “Looting is a term that we typically use when people of color or urban dwellers are doing something.”

    In the midst of a spate of organised looting in California and beyond, the media and academia is telling people that they shouldn’t be using the word ‘looting’ because it is associated with “people of colour”.

    According to  Julian Glover, ABC7 News Bay Area TV’s ‘Race and Social Justice reporter’ (yes really), the incidents should be described as “robbery” or “theft” because the word ‘looting’ is racist.

    Glover cites Lorenzo Boyd, PhD, Professor of Criminal Justice & Community Policing at the University of New Haven, who claims that “Looting is a term that we typically use when people of color or urban dwellers are doing something. We tend not to use that term for other people when they do the exact same thing.”

    Boyd also suggested the use of the word “looting” is part of an effort to politicize the crime wave by connecting it to Kyle Rittenhouse.

    “These types of massive organized smash-and-grabs were happening before the Rittenhouse situation happened,” Boyd said, adding “It’s a false equivalency. It’s people trying to politicize crime.”

    Watch:

    Furthermore, as reported by the Daily Mail, Martin Reynolds, co-executive director of the Robert C. Maynard Institute of Journalism Education also claimed that the term ‘looting’ should not be used for the “depiction of the flash mobs running roughshod through the aisles of Louis Vuitton and other retailers.”

    “This seems like it’s an organized smash and grab robbery,’ Reynolds said. “This doesn’t seem like looting. We’re thinking of scenarios where first responders are completely overwhelmed. And folks often may be on their own.”

    The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word “looting” as “to rob especially on a large scale and usually by violence or corruption,” so is the dictionary racist too?

    Violence is also certainly a feature of the crimes, with latest reports confirming that a security guard protecting a San Francisco Bay Area news crew has died after being shot in the abdomen.

    The organised looting is not confined to California, with incidents also reported in Minnesota.

    Video: Students Demand ‘Black Friday’ Be Renamed, Until They Discover It Has Nothing To Do With Race

    “Black Friday sounds offensive”

    Students at the University of Florida decided that ‘Black Friday’ should be renamed because… racism, until Campus Reform reporter Ophelie Jacobson pointed out that the term has nothing to do with anyone’s skin colour.

    Jacobson cited past claims in the mainstream media that the term is discriminatory against black people and asked the students if they thought it should be changed.

    Most said yes.

    “Black Friday sounds offensive,” one student even proclaimed.

    Jacobson then explained the meaning of Black Friday (trading in the red, in the black etc) prompting a sudden shift of opinion.

    One student said “I think nobody should overanalyze it. If it’s not about skin color, then I don’t see that there’s a problem.”

    “Knowing what it actually means…I don’t think this is actually something that is offensive,” another added.

    “I wouldn’t change it now that I know the origins of it,” a further student admitted.

    Watch:

    This is where we are at, any term with the word ‘black’ in it that can be construed as negative is now automatically considered to be racist.

    Indeed, this is a core concept for authors and academics leading the critical race theory movement.

    The line of thinking has found its way into universities, where there are now demands among students and staff to ban the word ‘black’ in textbooks and lectures if it comes with a negative connotation.

    ‘BLM Supporter’ Starts GoFundMe Page For Christmas Parade Massacre Culprit

    Claims killer is a victim of racism.

    A person professing his support for Black Lives Matter started a GoFundMe page to raise money for Christmas parade massacre culprit Darrell Brooks, asserting that Brooks was a victim of racism.

    Yes, really.

    Brooks was charged with five counts of intentional homicide after ramming his SUV into dozens of people during the horrific attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

    A GoFundMe page started by someone identifying as James Norton of Waukesha claims that Brooks is innocent and that his treatment is merely another example of institutionalized racism.

    “On November 21st, 2021 our dear friend Darrell Brooks was arrested for allegedly driving his car into a parade, as someone who knows Darrell personally I can tell you that he would NEVER do such a thing and I know he is innocent of what he was charged with,” Norton wrote.

    “Clearly there is more to the story the media is not telling us and I am seeking to raise the bail so Darrell can be released and speak his truth to his side of the story in this tragic situation that sees another black man behind bars in a purely political and racist trial.”

    null

    “There is no excuse for this continued treatment of black Americans by prosecutors around the country, everyone must be presumed innocent until proven guilty and we ask that he be treated equally as anyone else in this country would be treated and he should be released until found guilty.”

    The post concluded with the hashtags #BLM, #IStandWithDarrell, #NoJusticeNoPeace, and #RacismIsReal.

    Of course it remains entirely possible that the page could have been started by a troll to make Black Lives Matter supporters look bad.

    However, given that BLM agitators haven’t hesitated to raise money to get violent criminals out of jail before on multiple occasions, don’t rule out the creator being a genuine leftist.

    As we highlight in the video below, the media is still reporting that the attack was a “car crash” or an “accident” and repeating the proven lie that Brooks was fleeing from a crime scene.
