#WalkAway Latina Style

2020_01 20 Walk Away Latina

Tweeted by Mexican O’Crazio Corn Pop‏ @jetrotter

“I am a 19 year old female from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I went to the Trump rally back in 2016 with my mom, brother, and a couple of friends. I was totally against Trump & went to cause HELL, but my mom decided to go, so I had to sit there & LISTEN.

“It was a good speech & he was a good man, but I still wasn’t convinced. Leaving the rally, we had to go through the other way because the anti-Trump protesters wanted to get to us & hurt us. We walked outside & it looked like HELL. They made our city look like sh*t.

“As we were walking out, a young man (early 20’s) got out & punched an old Trump supporter who was a veteran. My mom got in it with him to not do that. People were throwing things at us, screaming in our faces, putting the Mexican flags in our faces, throwing rocks at the horses. They damaged police cars and started fires. It was a riot. Look it up; it made national news. Continue reading

Screwing Morality

Massachusetts Democrats want to bump control of sex education from the local to the state level. Massachusetts Senate Bill 2399 (“An Act Relative to Healthy Youth”), if passed and enacted, would require schools that only offer the sex education materials that Democratic state legislators deem to be “medically accurate” and “age-appropriate.”

Below are brief descriptions and quotations from two of the Democrat-approved curricula for middle schoolers. Warning: Graphic content.

PRAYER LOCKER: A 16-year-old high school student started a prayer locker at her school to help meet the needs she sees among classmates, including issues with anxiety, depression and all things associated with being a teenager.

Because it was student-initiated, the administration at Pell City High had no problem with her request. She says she keeps the prayer requests with her in a little bag, so she can pray any time.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM: Boy tells president how his teacher forced him to wipe off his Ash Wednesday mark [1:15] On this year’s National Religious Freedom Day, President Donald Trump issued a policy letter on students’ constitutional right to pray at school, marking his administration’s latest effort to protect the freedom of religious expression on campuses.

In public schools around the country, authorities are stopping students and teachers from praying, sharing their faith, or following their religious beliefs; it is totally unacceptable.” – President Trump

The U.S. Department of Education will send the president’s directive to education secretaries and officials in all 50 states as a reminder that schools may jeopardize their federal funding if they deny student’s religious freedom guaranteed by the First Amendment.

The new guideline does not change any existing laws or regulations. It is meant to empower students who want to pray at school by re-affirming their rights, including reading religious texts or praying during non-class periods, organizing prayer groups, and expressing their religious beliefs in their school assignments.

States are required to make sure their school districts have no policies restricting any of the above and to refer violators to the U.S. Secretary of Education.

Impeachment

On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who on many occasions insisted the impeachment process was oh-so-serious, giggled with glee as she brought in platters of gold pens to hand out after she signed the articles.

Then, Pelosi proclaimed, “Today, we will make history. When the managers walk down the hall, we will cross a threshold in history.”

House Democrats then somberly slow-walked the articles to the Senate, so the lapdog media would have maximum time to yammer somberly about how historic it all was.
