According to a lawsuit recently filed, Los Angeles teachers and Castro Valley schools are being weaponized to instill children with a hatred of Israel and Jews, in the guise of complying with a new California “ethnic studies” requirement.
In an effort to stop the LA project, a group of Jewish parents and teachers has sued the Los Angeles school district, its teachers’ union, and a corporation called the Liberated Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum Institute ( LESMCI ), formerly known as Liberated Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum Consortium. The suit asks the court to bar implementation of the LESMCI curriculum in LA, and to require the school district to disclose all ethnic studies teaching materials and hold required public hearings before the teaching materials are used.
We’ve been tracking the development of California’s ethnic studies model curriculum for a while. You can see some of our past coverage in
To recap: California tried for several years to develop and impose an ethnic studies curriculum. The California Board of Education’s first crack at a model curriculum was rejected in 2019 after Jews and others objected to its obvious anti-Semitism. The model ethnic studies curriculum that was eventually adopted is a vast improvement, but still appears to minimize anti-Semitism involving Ashkenazic or European Jews, as opposed to Jews from Middle Eastern and African nations who more readily fit the board’s “people of color” agenda.
Last October, the state enacted a law adding ethnic studies to high school graduation requirements. The new law specifically says that it’s the legislature’s intent not to use the original draft model curriculum rejected in 2019, “due to concerns related to bias, bigotry, and discrimination.” Gov. Newsom quoted that language in his signing statement .
The new law also says that the ethnic studies curriculum may “Not reflect or promote, directly or indirectly, any […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
