Loudon County, Virginia, is back in the news and over a divisive topic, Critical Race Theory (CRT). A group of parents and teachers is alleged to have created an enemies list of other parents and residents who were not on board with CRT.
They plan to infiltrate, subvert, or intimidate them. Two words that come to mind here are doxxing and bullying.
A group of current and former teachers and others in Loudoun County, Virginia, compiled a lengthy list of parents suspected of disagreeing with school system actions, including its teaching of controversial racial concepts — with a stated purpose in part to “infiltrate,” use “hackers” to silence parents’ communications, and “expose these people publicly.”
I did say back in the news. Remember this teacher whose remarks we posted ten days ago?
She’s referring to the same district and alluding to this very problem.
The district insists they can’t do anything because the list is protected first amendment speech. That’s interesting. Former NH Supreme Court Justice Robert Lynn made it clear that any Law (HB544) that limits teaching divisive concepts like Critical Race Theory (CRT) do not violate the First Amendment either. You can read that again here, Governor Sununu.
And any list itself is free speech until and unless it can be construed as a threat, and that’s the point, right? Bullying and doxxing people who disagree with you based on their opinions or their (gasp!) race has to be contrary to the ideals of equity and inclusion and CRT.
No, actually, like all leftist ideas, quite the opposite. Contradicting the faith is verboten and punishable by whatever means necessary, even on Facebook, where the group keeps the list.
But wouldn’t an enemies list violates their community standards?
It is directed at heathens of the greater God of Government, so probably not.
