Wednesday evening during a Loudoun County school board meeting in Virginia, a mom identified as Chantel Cooper totally scorched the board members over Critical Race Theory in front of other concerned parents who are fighting back against the mandated curriculum.
“In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character,” said the impassioned mother. “Now I have a dream that we will implement love, not hate, or supporting another Jim Crow’s agenda.”
She went on to highlight the history of Critical Race Theory and what it is doing to children in school today: “CRT is not an ‘honest dialogue,’ it is a tactic that was used by Hitler and the Ku Klux Klan on slavery very many years ago to dumb down my ancestors so we could not think for ourselves.”
“CRT is racist, it is abusive, it discriminates against one’s color,” Cooper noted. “Let me educate you: an ‘honest dialogue’ does not oppress, An ‘honest dialogue’ does not implement hatred or injustice—it’s to communicate without deceiving people.”

Cooper continued to lambast the school board members in epic fashion: “Today we don’t need your agreement, we want action and a backbone for what we ask for today: to ban CRT.”
“We don’t want your political advertisement to divide our children or belittle them. Think twice before you indoctrinate such racist theories. You cannot tell me what is or is not racist—look at me!” she commanded. “I had to come down here today to tell you to your face that we are coming together and we are strong. This will not be the last greet and meet, respectfully.”
The parents at the meeting also objected to so-called “pornographic” books that are being allegedly assigned to high school freshmen students. The books reportedly feature underage sex and violent scenes of domestic abuse.
One book reportedly shows a scene where a man beats a woman and then shoves her into a closet. He then continues to beat her whenever she asks for water or dares to make a sound. Another book allegedly shows a sex scene.
“This is the same district that banned Dr. Seuss and ‘Huckleberry Finn’ as being ‘offensive,’ yet they’re having children read pornography that violates every code of conduct in their sexual harassment training,” one parent stated.

Other parents are forcefully speaking out as well in Loudon County. For taking a stand, they are being actively targeted by school board members.
Former Justice Department official, consultant, and parent Ian Prior wrote an op-ed in The Federalist criticizing the critical race theory that is being taught in Virginia’s taxpayer-funded schools. He now finds himself on a list created by leftists who are advocating hacking and the destruction of websites that oppose CRT.
you missed the start of it and the thanking Facebook post of this school board member for her fans doxxing other parents who do not agree with them or CRT. We need to recall this school board member https://t.co/USvCMCe4HY pic.twitter.com/0vVQXrBFhq

They are even smearing Republican candidates who stand up against them.
This ⬇️⬇️… The Teachers Unions are targeting me + they are targeting concerned parents who dare to speak up + question why it’s March 15th (Gov’s deadline) +the vast majority of our schools across VA are not open.

A woman named Jen Morse also posted to the “Anti-Racist Parents of Loudoun County” Facebook page urging the 636 members there to take action:
-Infiltrate (create fake online profiles and join these groups to collect and communicate information, hackers who can either shut down their websites or redirect them to pro-CRT/anti-racist informational webpages)
-Spread information (exposes these people publicly, create online petitions, create counter mailings).
The purported anti-racist group is comprised of teachers, school board members, elected officials, and other “prominent members of the left-wing elite in Loudoun County,” according to David Gordon, who is the director of the Virginia Project, a Republican PAC.
Loudoun County Public Schools is denying the allegations, with a spokesperson telling Fox News on Wednesday that critical race theory “is not part of the Loudoun County Public Schools curriculum.” However, LCPS is apparently teaching racial equity which is a key component of CRT.
Twitter exploded over the mother’s confrontation with the school board:
She’s a rockstar.

That's the anger of a mom who found out her kids are being told that they are different because of their race. The wokes made this personal and now normal people are ready to put an end to it.

This is how it’s done. The seed starts here locally where the real power is, in people together, one cause, one school board, one city council and one county at a time.
