    California Parents Barred from Opting Kids Out of Mandatory LGBT-Inclusive Textbooks

    It seems the democrats think they are dictators and can take away parents rights. The democrats need to stop looking at Trump and need to look at their own party. This needs to be addressed by the GOP

    California has become the first state in the union to mandate the use of LGBT-inclusive textbooks in elementary schools and have given parents no way to opt out. The choice has been made for them. It’s the law.

    That law requires a “fair, accurate, inclusive, and respectful” treatment of homosexual, bisexual, transgender, and lesbian Americans despite the historical insignificance.

    “We’re not trying to make anybody gay; we’re not saying there’s an agenda; we’re not saying that these people are better than other people; what we’re saying is this is another group of Americans and they face certain prejudices,” said state publisher Mark Jarrett, whose history textbooks include special mention of the sexual preferences of historical figures like Jane Adams, Emily Dickinson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, President James Buchanan, though it’s inconclusive if these prominent Americans were gay or not.

    “I think we should say, ‘Buchanan, he never married. He had a very good friend who was living with him. He may have been gay,'” Jarrett added. “On the other hand, at that time, being gay was seen as something evil and wrong.”

    California approved the textbooks written by Jarrett, a Ph.D, to be used in the 8th grade. Students will read that legendary stagecoach driver Charlie Parkhurst “was a woman who identified as a man,” according to Fox News. They will read that George Washington’s chief of staff Baron Von Steuben “may have been gay,” and that poet Walt Whitman “was drawn to young men… but denied his same sex preferences in public.”

    Your hatred and racism falls upon deaf ears.

    Propaganda is king with the Democrats.

    The father of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, would be proud of California.

    Who knows..... there might be a section in one about paranoid truck drivers who need sympathy and understanding too.
