It’s not even entertaining anymore, the constant attacks against Darbi Boddy, the newly elected school board member at Lakota schools, which is in my home district. The latest media circus advocated by school leadership, specifically the superintendent, Matt Miller, has been to cite a trespassing order against Darbi because she went to two of the schools to take pictures of gay pride artwork that was on the walls as evidence in her endeavors to discover the extent of sexual grooming that is going on in public schools. Of course, the school rules are meant to protect the teacher’s unions from inquiry. The rules don’t exist to protect the children from intruders; it’s intended to give the radical leftist teachers in the union a platform to project their progressive agenda onto the students while their parents are away from them. Darbi recently got into a lot of trouble trying to point out how this is happening in Lakota and public schools in general. So she went to gather evidence which provoked Miller to send the police to her house to issue a trespassing violation, and of course, the major news organizations were camped out in front of Darbi’s house to record it all. The story made national headlines and even ended up in The New York Post. So Lakota has declared war on Darbi Boddy and the people who elected her, and they weren’t trying to hide it. But why would they? This has been their mode of operation for years. Darbi was just the latest target of their radical, progressive agenda.
A few years ago, Todd Parnell was forced to resign from the Lakota school board because he let it be known how he felt about some students who had been involved in criminal activity which happened to be minorities. Of course, Superintendent Matt Miller and other board members saw this as an opportunity to get rid of a conservative school board member that disagreed with them often, so they leaked the email and blew it out of context. It was a page out of the woke playbook. Todd Parnell said something that most people were thinking, but the woke rules of conduct that we now find uncomfortably in every level of our society held him to a public standard that was crippling, and he saw no way out but to resign. That’s precisely what progressives have wanted for years, to paralyze judgment from those most suited to have an opinion about it and to use that frozen reality as a way to control the people themselves with woke policies. And when someone like Todd, or now Darbi, violates those woke rules, they can then get rid of them by canceling the candidates that the voters had elected for those positions. Once Parnell left, the board selected a replacement board member of their choosing and tried to run him on the ballot in November, where he lost. Darbi Boddy beat that incumbent and many others by gaining over 8000 votes. So that school board and Matt Miller specifically are looking to cancel culture Darbi Boddy who was just elected, and force her into hiding as they saw worked with Todd Parnell. Only Darbi isn’t having any of it. She’s doing what conservatives should have been doing for decades; she’s fighting back.
The school board meeting on Monday, 5.9.22, was a circus. The pro-union mob of mask-wearing malcontents whom the superintendent represents like a parrot who should be fed in crackers instead of the $200,000 we pay him with property taxes that range from $5000 per year to $10,000 tried to have a flash mob before the meeting to push Darbi into hiding. But it turned out to be a few losers that are in the far minority of the typical Butler County voters. Voters had just sent Darbi to the school board of Lakota, and here were these radical progressive elements who wanted to invalidate the voters with radicalism and woke rules. Of course, at the heart of the matter is the debate of whether or not sexual grooming is going on in Lakota, which of course, Matt Miller says, isn’t happening. Yet one of the radicals from the anti-Darbi crowd sent me a t-shirt design that said otherwise. I brought it to the meeting to demonstrate the culture we are dealing with. We can’t trust what Lakota says, so we elected Darbi to get on the board and get control of the mess. But the t-shirt shows who the anti-Darbi, pro unionized teacher supporters really are. The shirt proudly displays all the gender-neutral pronouns in the news these days, illustrated in rainbow colors, intended to provoke sentiment toward gay pride. The intent of the shirt, which says, “We are Lakota” at the bottom of it, advocates for alternative homosexual lifestyles. The rainbow doesn’t mean anything but sex. It’s not supportive of building rockets or learning how to operate an easy bake oven. It intends to bring to the minds of students, teachers, and parents at Lakota the issue of alternative sexual lifestyles. Much of this exposure happens to kids who aren’t even in puberty yet. So the progressive playbook that is a national problem with public schools sees their access to children as a way to loosen the parameters of sexual lifestyles culturally, which is a big problem. The voters of Lakota voted for Darbi Boddy to stop that kind of behavior. Not to play nice with it. And in her first six months, she has managed to make all those vile elements of public education upset, which means she’s doing a great job as a school board member.
I’m over 50, so when I see the gay pride rainbows, even if it’s at Disney World or Target, I think of a couple of misguided losers with a jar of vaseline in the back of a rusty Pinto wasting the night away to a tape in the tape deck playing Queen’s greatest hits. When I was younger, gay day at Kings Island was not a day anybody went because you didn’t want to be associated with gay activity. Obviously, progressives have sought to change that sentiment, and their goal is to make the gay pride rainbow colors mainstream. To make people see it as “normal.” And that is what they want from their access to children in public schools, to groom them into alternative sexual lifestyles. Many people don’t like having these homosexual messages stuffed in their faces, and there has been backlash at Disney, and Target has felt its wrath. And so too should Lakota. But what is going on at Lakota is that the rules of conduct are created to keep people like Darbi from discovering just how bad the sexual grooming is in schools. Superintendents like Matt Miller representing the radical teacher’s union types, don’t want elected members of the community digging through their progressive, safe space, so they tried to punish Darbi into submission and force her to resign just six months into her first term when she was the most popularly elected official on the board. It’s not just an attack on Darbi Boddy, but it’s an attack on the voters who elected her. And it’s a pattern of behavior that is consistent with the overpriced leadership of the school itself. The attempt to run off a second board member who is at odds with the woke progressive agenda is not acceptable. Todd Parnell didn’t feel like fighting it, and that was a shame because I thought he should have stayed on the board and made them look at him every day for what they did to him. I am very happy that Darbi is willing to stay and fight. And for that, we should all be thankful. It’s not just the voters who benefit, but someone has to fight for the right of kids to be as innocent and intelligent for as long as possible. And by the actions of the teaching staff and leadership of Lakota schools in Butler County, Ohio, they intend to groom children into sexual alternatives as young as possible. That is why they don’t like Darbi Boddy because she is exposing it.
