Most of the children can’t even read or do math at a proficient level, government studies show. But victims of government schools across California will now be forced to endure extreme state-sponsored “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender” (LGBT) indoctrination, whether parents approve or not.
As The Newman Report highlighted in November, California became the first state in the nation to ban history textbooks that do not promote the LGBT agenda. Under the so-called “FAIR Act,” any K-8 history book that does not provide “fair, accurate, inclusive, and respectful” treatment of people involved in the sin of homosexuality, or people confused about their gender, is prohibited for use in government schools.
Now, as parental outrage grows, Fox News reports that parents will not even be allowed to opt their children out of the LGBT brainwashing. The move ensures that parents have no way to protect their children from LGBT indoctrination by the state, short of completely removing them from what passes for public “education” today in California.
“We’re not trying to make anybody gay; we’re not saying there’s an agenda; we’re not saying that these people are better than other people; what we’re saying is this is another group of Americans and they face certain prejudices,” claimed state publisher Mark Jarrett, who publishes bogus “history” textbooks claiming historical figures were homosexuals or at least potential homosexuals.
One of the men that LGBT activists are trying to claim as their own is President James Buchanan. “I think we should say, ‘Buchanan, he never married. He had a very good friend who was living with him. He may have been gay,’” Jarrett claimed, as if everybody who never married and had a roommate of the same sex should be suspected of harboring homosexual proclivities. “On the other hand, at that time, being gay was seen as something evil and wrong.” Of course, most people around the world today, including all of the major religions, still hold homosexual acts to be sinful.
Jarrett’s officially sanctioned LGBT propaganda posing as “history” includes an 8th grade textbook that tells children that stagecoach driver Charlie Parkhurst “was a woman who identified as a man,” according to media reports. Those same victims of government “education” will also read the outrageous lie that George Washington’s chief of staff Baron Von Steuben “may have been gay.” And the young children will be told that poet Walt Whitman was “drawn to young men… but denied his same sex preferences in public.”
Parents who object to this perversion of history and education being foisted on their innocent children will have no way to “opt out,” as California officials have made abundantly clear. On the bright side, though, the increasing extremism and perversion is likely to encourage the growing exodus from government indoctrination centers into the safety of homeschooling and Christian schools.
