NEW FAKE SCANDAL: Betsy DeVos visiting anti-transgender school!

This is so stupid on multiple levels. CNN is trying to scandalize Betsy DeVos again, this time over a visit to an elementary school that is apparently anti-transgender:



They failed to mention in their outrage tweet that this elementary school is a private Catholic school:

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will attend a roundtable on Thursday at a Pennsylvania Catholic school that subscribes to an anti-trans student policy.

Harrisburg Catholic Elementary School in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, is slated to host the event, according to a department press release — and is subject to the Diocese of Harrisburg’s student policy on Gender Identity Questions.

The policy characterizes gender-affirming surgery, an option for some transgender individuals, as “understood in Catholic moral terms as self-mutilation and therefore immoral.”

“To attempt to make accommodations for such persons would be to cooperate in the immoral action and impose an unacceptable burden on others in the school community,” the policy reads.

The policy asserts that Catholic school students’ parents “agree that they will not (publicly) act in opposition to Catholic teaching.”

“Notification of a student’s determination to undergo a sex change procedure or that a student has undergone the procedure … would violate that agreement,” the policy continues. “The student would be ineligible to attend or remain in attendance in a Catholic school.”

CNN has reached out to Harrisburg Catholic Elementary School and the US Education Department for comment.

It’s a private Catholic school. Why is this even a thing? Does CNN believe that private Christian schools shouldn’t have religious freedom, that Catholic schools must be forced to reject their own Christian church teaching on homosexuality and transgenderism?

Also it’s an elementary school, which makes this ‘thing’ even more absurd because little kids shouldn’t even be in the transgender universe! If anything, this Catholic school (and many others) is doing these children a huge service by protecting them from this LGBT life-ruining propaganda.

To heck with CNN!

  1. O /T

    Donald Trumps Twitter.

    Dummy Beto made it much harder to make a deal. Convinced many that Dems just want to take your guns away. Will continue forward!

    It sounds like Trumps willing to negotiate our second amendment rights away.

    1. Getting bad advice that he needs a big piece of gun legislation to win reelection. Sadly just the opposite as Sean Davis had link to MSNBC poll online and it ask should a person be able to publically carry and the choice was yes it’s our constitutional right. At the time I voted it was 93% for that option. Stupid Trump/GOP. His son Don Jr. Best get ahold of him again.

    2. Sounding more and more like it and sadly I don’t think Cruz has enough help to stop it this time like he did last time they tried to push Manchin-Toomey bill.

      1. Anytime Ted Cruz steps up to the plate with a well reasoned / effective solution to a problem. The media/ Democrats and some Republicans, start trashing him instantly.

          1. He has been better than I expected as well. Hope he helps Cruz defeat whatever disaster gets cobbled together.

  2. Good. Let parents know there are schools that don’t shove the lgbtqxyz agenda down their kids throats. If the $ followed the students instead of the failed public schools parents would have more choice.

    1. Did you know there’s a number in it now?

      No BS. I read about it yesterday. Apparently it’s “LGBTQ2.” I have no idea what the 2 is supposed to stand for, but apparently it’s there.

      1. LGBTQ2+ is an abbreviation that stands for: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (or sometimes questioning), and two-spirited. SMH

        1. I’m a little bothered by the fact that there’s still a B in there. Doesn’t that necessarily assume there are only two genders?

  3. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to visit school that refuses to accommodate trans students

    Like… that’s a bad thing?

    When I was a kid, school refused to accommodate my trans. See, as a child, I used to identify as Superman. But they refused to let me wear a cape OR jump off the school roof. Haters.

  4. That’s the lefts new name for Christian Schools. If you believe what the Bible says your anti transgender bigot according to them.

  5. CNN is Left Wing garbage masquerading as Journalism; they should be permanently banned from White House Briefings as not real Journalists.

    1. Remember back when all Americans were appalled at “genital mutilation” done to little girls in Africa? Who knew it would evolve into our country and be done to them, and to little boys in the best medical facilities?

      This is where liberalism takes you. Killing 60 million babies in the womb and now mutilating the ones that were born. They are real sickos.

  6. I wonder if there would be media outrage if Secretary DeVos visited Muslim school. After all, in the Islamic nations, they throw LGBT people off buildings and stone them. All signs point towards no. Anything that does not fit in the leftist narrative is simply ignored.

  7. At this rate they’re have trans-gender only schools. They’ll produce some of the most inept, over critical, anti-everything not them people this planet has ever seen.

    1. On the plus side, progressivism (given its collectivist nature) is inherently suicidal.

      So… it’ll all work out in the end. In death and tragedy, yes, but at least it’ll be over.

        1. LOL I get why you’d say that, but here’s what I found:
          “LGBTQ2+ is an abbreviation that stands for: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (or sometimes questioning), and two-spirited.”

          1. I see they are imaginative.. leaving room for growth, so to speak, maybe one day a three-spirited species will be discovered or invented.

          2. You’re not going to want to know what letter they intend to add next according to a story I read yesterday. Well I’ll tell you anyway. P

  8. Tomorrow’s CNN newsflash!
    “Betsy DeVos visits anti-Muslim school!”
    (She goes to a Hebrew school for a bar mitzvah).

    This is why Peronism forms. The left gets out of hand and the right reacts.

  9. It does not surprise me that the liberals are going after private schools. There’s lots of private Christian schools around, and the libs are not able to indoctrinate the kids with their liberal agenda. I expect more of this.

  10. It only reminds me,this is one of the better picks the President selected to be a part of his Administration.

    1. Mmm, I’m a little bit teed off with her for not going more after common core. Granted, her hands are tied in what she can actually do, and she’s denounced it well enough – but I really wanted to see her make a concentrated effort to come up with fundamental-curriculum-based alternatives and go sell them to the States. Because the States are like, “Eh whatever. CC’s working, why change.”

      And that’s no good.

      1. Thanks AT,as you can see the best comment I could come up with here is Trump made a mediocre pick at best and I left it at that.Hope that explains it

    2. It’d be nice if she actually bites… reminds me of George Bush, remaining above the fray… dignity of office, or some such.

      1. I first heard of her when she was all over the news as one of those wanting Common Core removed from our Schools,but I have not heard whether or not she has been effective in doing so.Thanks SJS

  11. The idea that ANY grade school kid should have to be concerned w/ gender/sexual orientation instead of just kids being kids makes my stomach turn. It becomes a ‘big deal’ to a kid because the (supposed) adults around them make it such.

  12. Many parents send their children to Catholic School to escape the crazy, and the poor education, of public school. Transgender is a mental illness. No school or reputable member of the medical profession should treat it as anything else.

    1. Schools are beholden to tax dollars through the very liberal and statanic federal dept of ed and these days, there are few “reputable” medical professionals in business anymore because they are funded by the pharmaceutical companies, which fund the FDA. Only the people can change that by recruiting real valued people to replace the thugs that have taken over our federal government. The founders warned Americans, hundreds of years ago, about just what is happening now.

  13. Commie-Socialist Progressive Demo☭rats and their representatives lie, cheat and steal, knowing that a percentage of the population will actually believe what they say. Were it not for corrupt values, the Commie-Socialist Progressive Demo☭rat Party and their soros-funded minions would have no values at all.

  14. DeVos wouldn’t have been my choice for Education Secretary, however, she deserves high fives for engaging with an enemy of the left.
