California Democrats are taking action against what have now been deemed “conservative school boards.”
Governor Gavin Newsom and Democrats in Sacramento are rolling out new penalties for school districts that break state rules.
Among those penalties are a threatened $1.5 million fine if a school district refuses to back a state curriculum mentioning the late California gay rights leader Harvey Milk.
Officials will also be investigating board members, be creating new laws to fight banning books that are generally considered wildly inappropriate for children, and have issued a lawsuit against the school district that’s challenging a policy that requires schools to notify families when a child claims to identify as transgender.
In a clip on MSNBC, California Superintendent Tony Thurmond shows how excited he is for these new endeavors, claiming California “students are calling out and asking for help against MAGA extremists who are threatening them.”
“Sadly, the actions of some of the board majorities in our state are leading to violence against those who are in the LGBTQ-plus community and against students of color," he adds.
Dave Rubin, per usual, is not amused.
Rubin calls MSNBC a “televised mental institution” and adds “you’re going against parents,” not school boards.
“Parents are on school boards. They’re interested in a little transparency. They want to know what their kids are learning, who’s teaching them these things,” Rubin explains.
Rubin notes that the $1.5 million penalty for refusing to teach about Harvey Milk is incredibly laughable, because “Harvey Milk was also having an affair with a 16-year-old boy.”
Thurmond was also kicked out of a school board meeting in Chino after being told by the school board president that he was “not going to blackmail” them, to the cheers of the audience. This was in a fight with the superintendent over the idea that teachers should keep the children’s claimed “identity” a secret from the parents.
“It’s controversial to know if your kid is being secretly taught that they’re a girl if they’re actually a boy,” Rubin says. “That should not be controversial.”
“God bless these parents,” he adds. “There are still a few sane people in California.”
