What a Wisconsin school district apparently thinks of your kids.
They’re coming for you next: The Kiel school district in Wisconsin is now investigating three eighth grade children for daring to use the wrong pronouns. Worse, according to the evidence that the school itself presented, it appears the school and the investigating principal, Chad Ramminger, has been on a fishing expedition looking for any evidence it can find to punish the kids in question.
From the letter [pdf] sent to the school by the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty:
During the interviews with our clients on April 26–27, Mr. Ramminger asked various questions, many of which were unrelated to the incidents described in the subsequently provided statement from the music teacher, suggesting a fishing expedition to find evidence of sexual harassment. And when one family considered
halting the interview to get a lawyer, Mr. Ramminger responded with something to effect of, “you could, but how would that look”? All of this leaves the impression that the District is weaponizing its Title IX process to strong-arm minor students into compliance with its preferred mode of speech. This is wrong and illegal.
The incident itself, as described by the parent of one of the kids, Rosemary Rabidoux, illustrates the tyrannical nature of the school and the girl trying to impose speech on others.
One of the alleged incidents Braden [Rabidoux] and the others were supposedly involved in happened in late April. “She had been screaming at one of Braden’s friends to use proper pronouns, calling him profanity, and this friend is very soft-spoken, and kind of just sunk down into his chair,” Rabidoux explained. “Braden finally came up, defending him, saying ‘He doesn’t have to use proper pronouns, it’s his constitutional right to not use, you can’t make him say things.’”
From this minor childish argument — in which 13-year-old Braden Rabidoux exhibited a remarkable and accurate understanding of freedom of speech — the school’s administrators decided that the full force of the federal government must be brought down on Braden and his two friends.
Beside the obvious fact that using the wrong pronouns violates no law and isn’t covered by Title IX, the Institute’s letter also noted that the school officials failed utterly to follow due process in instigating their investigation.
The parents and their lawyers should pursue this case hard, and if they can’t get this investigation dropped immediately and their kids records cleared should sue Ramminger and his colleagues, school superintendent Brad Ebert and counselor Megan Kautzer, for as much money as possible.
And regardless, all three parents should remove their kids from this public school now, regardless of whether the investigation is dropped. The school’s teachers and administrators have not only shown that they are personally hostile to their children, they have revealed their warped belief that the children under their care don’t have freedom of speech, while showing that they intend to indoctrinate the kids in the modern sexual perversions being pushed by the left. Why subject your children to this ugliness?
From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space
, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.
does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.
“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.
