ADVERTISEMENT A judge has ruled that a lawsuit brought by Pennsylvania moms against their children’s first-grade teacher will be allowed to proceed, striking down a motion asking the court to dismiss the case.
The moms’ lawsuit alleges that by discussing gender dysphoria and transitioning with her students, the teacher, Megan Williams, violated district policy, state law, and the Constitution. The Mount Lebanon School District, its superintendent, and school board are also named, as well as officials at Jefferson Elementary School. According to Fox News , Senior US District Judge Joy Flowers Conti ruled on October 27 that the moms, Carmilla Tatel, Stacy Dunn, and Gretchen Melton, had “sufficient reason to allege their constitutional rights were violated if their claims are true.”
In the lawsuit, they claim that by providing instruction on gender-related topics to her students without parents’ consent, Williams violated their 14th Amendment rights, as well as their right to religious freedom.
The moms also noted that Williams, who has a child that identifies as transgender , “began the process of interjecting her own personal life and views into the classroom” and “explained to her students that sometimes ‘parents are wrong’ and parents and doctors ‘make mistakes’ when they bring a child home from the hospital.”
The district, for their part, was accused of hiding the fact that gender dysphoria and transitioning were part of the curriculum in Williams’ class, thereby not giving parents the ability to opt-out.
With their lawsuit, the moms are seeking to obtain a court order to stop such instruction from taking place at Jefferson Elementary, or at least give parents more say in the matter. They are also seeking a jury trial in federal court to determine whether compensatory and punitive damages are warranted.
Responding to the lawsuit, the Mt. Lebanon School District said that it “deeply values and […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
