California Teachers Urged to Secretly Recruit Kids for LGBTQ Clubs

The largest teachers union in California urged educators to recruit children for LGBTQ clubs, according to leaked audio.

The California Teachers Association held a conference in October outlining how teachers should subvert parents in conservative communities on issues like gender identity and sexual orientation, Abigail Shrier reports.


Responding to backlash from parents, one teacher said, “We’re going to do just a little mind-trick on our sixth graders.”

In the shocking report, teachers surveilled students’ Google searches, internet activity and conversations in the hallway to recruit them into the LGBTQ organizations, while hiding their membership from their parents.

Lori Caldeira, a Buena Vista Middle School teacher and LGBTQ club leader, told fellow educators: “Because we are not official—we have no club rosters, we keep no records. In fact, sometimes we don’t really want to keep records because if parents get upset that their kids are coming? We’re like, ‘Yeah, I don’t know. Maybe they came?’ You know, we would never want a kid to get in trouble for attending if their parents are upset.”

She told them she volunteered to do morning announcements to “control the information that goes home.”

Kelly Baraki, another middle school teacher, explained that the LGBTQ activist-educators do all they can to “identify kids” with declining membership during the pandemic.

“So we started to try and identify kids,” Baracki said. “When we were doing our virtual learning – we totally stalked what they were doing on Google, when they weren’t doing school work… we make note of those kids and the things that they bring up with each other in chats or email or whatever … we use our observations of kids in the classroom—conversations that we hear—to personally invite students. Because that’s really the way we kinda get the bodies in the door. Right? They need sort of a little bit of an invitation.”

Shrier contends: “But if students aren’t especially interested in attending an LGBTQ club, if the leaders have trouble maintaining membership, if parents oppose them and schools, as Caldeira complains, often fail to support them—why on earth are teachers pushing them?”

National radio host and beTodd Starnes points out: “If people did this on the streets, they’d be in jail, so why are teachers doing this in the classroom?”

“These radical LGBT activists are using our classrooms to groom children,” Starnes said. “They are predators.”
