Blacklists are back and the Democrats (and their supporters) have got ’em: Two officials at the Lovett School, an expensive private K-12 school in the Atlanta area, have assembled an enemies list of “insubordinate” parents.
The picture to the right is a screen capture of an email sent to one of these officials, Jennifer Boutte, director of community relations, showing the list of parent enemies (blurred out to protect the privacy of these individuals). In it one official, Cholle [sp?] Wabrok, thanked Boutte for apparently assembling the list, adding
It is long overdue. I am disgusted by some of these parents, need to prioritize our efforts as some have too much influence. Our watch list — to keep hard-copy only?
I think it bears repeating that Boutte is listed as the school’s director of community relations. It is her job to foster good relations, not develop blacklists to blackball some parents because she doesn’t like their opinions.
Since this email was made public, the head of the school’s Broad of Trustees, John Knox, sent out an email emphatically denying its legitimacy, claiming it is a fabrication. While this claim might be so, it is not unreasonable to doubt his word, considering the amount of aggressive blackballing school officials nationwide have done in fighting parent protests, often accompanied by slanders and lies against those parents. Furthermore, as noted in this article, “The school’s website lists a number of diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, including affinity groups,” focused expressly on the Marxist bigoted agenda of critical race theory (CRT) dressed up with the now standard title “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.”
If Lovett’s administrators think this racist program — designed to foster hate between the races — is a good idea, than we are perfectly within our rights to be skeptical of them. In fact, that this school encourages CRT suggests there already are a lot of parents expressing objections to the school, which makes this list’s existence all the more likely.
The story probably needs a few more days to play out. And even if the school’s claims turn out to be true, I wonder why any parent would want to send their children there, considering the school is still teaching CRT to the little kids under its care.

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.
