Va. parents speak against indoctrination and CRT in schools, and one mom brings the disturbing receipts

A segment on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” Tuesday featured several Virginia parents who were there to explain their opposition to Critical Race Theory (CRT) in schools, a pivotal issue in the gubernatorial election in the state being held on the same day.

Among those who appeared on the show was Asra Nomani, a former reporter for the Wall Street Journal. After commending the parents for banding together in the fight against left-wing indoctrination in schools, she presented several books that she claims are in use in the state, in an effort to belie the contention from the Left that CRT is only taught at the graduate school level.

The first book Nomani exhibited was called “A is for Activist.” She turned to a particular page that contained a photograph of a man in a black mask, looking much – if not exactly – like an ANTIFA or ISIS member, ostensibly as a station in life to which children should aspire.

She also had with her the books, “Woke Baby,” “Gender Queer” and “Not My Idea.” Where some titles like “Gender Queer” address notions of sexuality that could arguably be described as inappropriate for certain age groups, no well-rounded education would be complete without a healthy amount of racism. She opened up “Not My Idea” to a point in the book where she claimed it is written that “whiteness is a deal with the Devil.”

She pointed out a drawing in the book that depicts a written contract with the Great Deceiver himself.

Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt then spoke with Fred Rege, a parent from the group “Fight for Schools,” who said his principal responsibility in life is the raising of his two daughters.

“I want my daughters and I want other kids in Loudoun County to have the idea and the concept that you can do anything,” he said.

“You can achieve. You have agency. You have opportunity,” he added.

He went on to say that African-Americans are tired of the pandering that is so much of the Democratic Party’s practice when campaigning, adding that many black so-called leaders show up during an election year, only to never be heard from again.

“African-Americans are waking up,” he added.

Another parent, Paul Troth, who is also a middle school teacher and football coach in the county, explained his support for the Republican candidate for governor. Troth has appeared in at least one of Glenn Youngkin’s campaign ads and said that freedom of choice is of the essence for him in the gubernatorial race.

“I think that parents are wanting – like anything in life – to have a choice. Your zip code shouldn’t determine where you go to school,” he said.

“If the other guy [McAuliffe] wins, there’s some things that my kids won’t be allowed to do. Whether it’s where to go to school, what to put in your body … I think liberty is the most important thing,” Troth said.

He concluded, “Liberty is on the ballot for me. It always is.”
