A rebellion is brewing. Ethnic minorities are rising up against wokeness. In the U.S., Canada, and the U.K., Muslims, Latinos, Armenians and others are challenging the teaching of gender ideology in schools. They’re protesting at school gates and demanding that teachers focus on “the three Rs”—reading, writing, and arithmetic—rather than forcing their kids to swim in the alphabet soup of LGBTQ.
This might be the most important revolt yet against the politicization of education, against the upper-middle-classes’ use of the classroom as a soapbox for social engineering, where the aim is less to enlighten the young than to inculcate them with all the “correct” thoughts on sex, gender, and race. The eccentric ideologies of the largely white graduate elites are crashing against the pro-family, small-c conservatism of immigrant-descended communities.
One such example is Glendale California!
Glendale, a city known for its “progressive” outlook, found itself at the center of a heated debate surrounding gender studies within its school district. On a seemingly ordinary evening, a school district meeting meant to discuss the implementation of gender studies in the curriculum turned into a chaotic scene as protesters clashed outside.
Things seem to change in the “woke” community.
Glendale has a large Armenian-Christian population and they are fed up with the LGBTQ/pride events taking place in elementary schools.
Two weeks ago there was a huge fight where Antifa suffered and most of its members were heavily beaten!
That wasn’t enough so the commie organization asked for a rematch.
Following Antifa’s recent humiliation in Glendale, CA, they have called for a rematch against Armenian-American parents on June 20. They’re telling outside comrades & allies to pack the school board meeting to manipulate the public into not hearing the parental opposition to queer & gender ideology. They’re showing up early in masks to hide their identities. Police have released a statement about the potential for violence again.
According to CBS News, 50 police officers were deployed to break up the massive brawl that erupted around 6 pm local time.
It didn’t end well for Antifa/LGBTQ protesters again as you can see in the video below:
Clashes between woke agitators and minority parents are becoming commonplace. In Glendale in California this month, some parents withdrew their kids from school Pride celebrations. Armenian and Latino parents were among those who did not want their children to be subjected to rainbow re-education on sex and gender. Antifa Southern California called for counterprotests against the parents, on the basis that they are essentially “hate groups.”
