DEVELOPING STORY: The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Department declared a Tuesday school board meeting to be an unlawful assembly after hundreds of outraged parents confronted school leaders over transgender and Critical Race Theory policies.
The policies regard transgender student rights, privacy and restroom accommodations and would require Loudoun County Public Schools employees to use students’ preferred names or pronouns. An official school board vote on the proposal is not expected until at least Aug. 10.
The school board shut down parents and refused to hear their comments. They ordered parents to leave the room under threat of arrest.
At least two people were arrested.
“These brave American patriots should be saluted,” said national radio host Todd Starnes. “Every freedom-loving American should do the same thing at their local school board meetings. Stand your ground and don’t allow the sex and gender revolutionaries to prey on your children.”
