High school students walk out over assistant principal’s disparaging remarks toward “straight, white” people

FARMINGTON, MN- For quite some time, we’ve witnessed parents speaking out against critical race theory and anti-white propaganda being taught in our nation’s schools. In case you may have wondered, “where are the students,” that question may have just been answered.

According to BizPacReview, some high school students in Minnesota may have finally had enough after they walked out of school over remarks made by a high school assistant principal on “straight, white privilege.” After initially enraging parents, the comments also led to students finally taking a stand.

Some students, who complained “you’re only allowed to speak your mind if you agree with the administration,” walked out of Farmington High School last week to protest the email sent by Assistant Principal Laura Wagner to her staff.

The brouhaha emerged after the school decided to eliminate the titles of homecoming “king” and “queen”  and wanted to opt for the woke, gender-neutral term of “royalty.”

The email Wagner wrote detailed a conversation she had with faculty member Tiffany Fearing where she discussed what the school’s “presence looks like…as we switch to royalty instead of a king and queen.”

“Per usual we have some keyboard warriors who are making Tiffany concerned about student wellbeing. I think her concerns are valid and I want to make sure we are showing up for her and our students,” Wagner wrote. She then added, “This would be a great time to use your straight, white privilege to reassure and support students and staff in doing what they believe is right for our school community.”

When Wagner’s email went public, parents expressed outrage over her dismissive comments about “straight, white privilege,” and the fact as an administrator, she should be more sensitive to her use of clearly inflammatory language designed to divide.

However it was students, some 100 or so in number, who walked out of class last Wednesday to protest Wagner’s clearly biased attribution to those who disagreed with the decision, Alpha News reported. Clearly it isn’t only parents who are growing tired of the progressive agenda being pushed in our classrooms across the country.

According to one student organizer, they told the outlet:

“I’m at school to learn, not to get political views,” while adding, “You’re only allowed to speak your mind if you agree with the administration.”

One parent who agreed with the position taken by that student is Scott Duellman, who expounded on it.

“Wagner is acting like you should be ashamed if you’re straight and white. It’s like she’s saying, “You should be ashamed if you don’t stand in our corner.”

“We’re past slavery. I was not a part of that,” Duellman continued. “My parents were immigrants. I had nothing to do with it. My kids had nothing to do with it. Yes, this is America and we’re white. But we shouldn’t be ashamed of something I can’t control.”

Meanwhile, another parent who asked to remain anonymous spoke to Fox News and said:

“The Farmington, Minnesota school district preaches inclusivity and non-discriminatory actions to the staff and students.

As a parent, it’s offensive and appalling to see that behind closed doors they feel as though they can use certain discriminatory verbiage to push an agenda that parents, students, and the community are unaware of.

“The school has continually pushed a random agenda of division and exclusivity to the students which came to light last year, and this is just a new faction of the school’s quiet procedural dissidence,’ the parent continued.

The school on its home page advertises its mission which is defined as providing “equitable experiences that inspire growth and leadership,” as well as “culturally and linguistically responsive communication and collaboration.”

In response to the controversy, the superintendent of schools in the district, Jason Berg issued a statement as follows:

“We are aware of an email that was sent to a small number of staff regarding the Farmington High School homecoming parade and coronation which is now circulating. This email has impacted our community and high school learners in many different ways.

Farmington High School is providing various spaces and counseling staff to support learners as they process these recent events. Please know this personnel matter is being addressed, and as such there is no further information we can share.”

Wagner is clearly an unhinged radical who probably doesn’t belong anywhere near a school building. She was among 162 school principals in Minnesota that signed something called the “Good Trouble” pledge in 2020 as Black Lives Matter protest ravaged cities and towns across the U.S. after George Floyd’s overdose death. The main objective of that pledge was “De-centering whiteness.”

It is important to note that the move to a gender-neutral “royalty” has once again had an adverse effect on girls, much as the whole transgender issue concerning high school sports has overwhelmingly had a negative impact on girls’ sports.

In the case of Farmington High School, there had previously been 10 girls and 10 boys in the homecoming court. Due to the “inclusive” nature of this year’s court, “this year’s ‘non-binary’ court consists of 16 boys and six girls.” Alpha News reports.

Fox News Digital reached out to both Wagner and Fearing, who did not respond to a request for comment.

Following is a take from our Executive Director on how wokeness is leading to the spate of school shootings:

DIG DEEPER

Over the weekend, my wife and I were walking through a mall together for the first time in years.  We went into a store called “Spencer’s” for old-time sake … it used to be the place all of the pre-teens went to back in the day.

Just as it used to be … it was filled with kids.  There was also a couple in the back of the store with their child who couldn’t have been older than five or six.

What else was in the back of the store?  Sex toys.  TONS of them.  Vibrators.  Lubricants.  Lingerie.  Teenagers hanging out in what was essentially a sex shop for kids.

Keep in mind, we’re not talking about an 18+ shop here.  We’re talking about a store in the Buckland Hills Mall in Manchester, Connecticut that lures you in with St. Patrick’s Day pride decorations.

Protecting our children isn’t limited to safety.  It all starts with the culture we allow them to be exposed to.  And we’re collectively failing.

Sex toys in front of our kids apparently aren’t offensive to people … but God-forbid little kids be allowed to sing “The Little Indians” song.

There was a successful movement to ban the “gun” emoji on the iPhone (it was replaced with a green water gun) – but you can give someone a “middle finger” emoji.

Female celebrities such as Emily Ratajkowski will post on Instagram memes and graphics against “sexual expectations from men” – and then post pictures of themselves naked on that same feed while pretending to be role models for young girls.

Parents demand the removal of all guns from America, and then let their kid spend sixteen hours pretending to kill people and steal cars on video games.

Moms talk about protecting their innocent children from “horrible people” like President Donald Trump … then bring their kids to parades and make them hold expletive-laced signs while dressed up as parts of the female anatomy.

People flip out when a passionate politician swears … but they have no problem letting their kids watch movies loaded with crass language.

Rappers complain about stereotypes and being targeted by police … then drop 50 n-words in a “song” where they glorify drug use and violence.

College professors talk all about the need for free speech … then work to shut down that free speech on campus if it’s not promoting a liberal agenda.

People demand we remove “God” from society – then ask where our “God” was when terrible things happened around us.

We’ve removed nuclear families and strong fathers and integrity and respect and faith and common sense from American culture and replaced it with violence, drugs, and sex.

We’ve replaced hard work with participation trophies … we’ve exchanged an education in capitalism for teachings about socialism … we’ve taken kids off the playgrounds and drugged them to calm them down … we’ve told little boys that manliness is toxic, but that marijuana has only been illegal because of the big mean government … and we wonder why we have problems in society.

We’ve set the example that if you break the law it’s not a big deal if it advances a certain political agenda.  We’ve taught that rules can be broken if you don’t like those rules.

We’ve taught that we shouldn’t incarcerate bad guys if it’s going to make mayors and governors look bad to have high incarceration rates.

We’ve taught that people don’t kill people … guns kill people … so we should walk away from the Second Amendment because in doing so, criminals are going to arbitrarily surrender their weapons and become saints.

We’ve taught that gun-free zones convince bad guys not to go in them while ignoring the fentanyl crisis in a country where the drug is illegal.

But we wonder.  We wonder why we have school shootings.  We wonder where we went wrong in raising children.  We feign disbelief and say it must be someone else’s fault.  It must be the other kids in school that are a bad influence.  It must be lousy teachers.  It must be something or someone else.  After all – we’ve done an amazing job of raising our children.

The problem isn’t coming.  It’s already here.  And the only way for us to stop it is to first recognize it.

Reyes: We’re facing the collapse of law enforcement in America. It will lead to the end of our country as we know it.

Editor’s note:  In what has become something of an annual tradition (sadly), Law Enforcement Today writes about the challenges facing not only law enforcement, but our country in general.

These articles have proven to be among the most popular we post. When we started this series, we thought things were pretty bad. However, since January 20, 2021 – things have gotten much, much worse.

In 2020 during the run up to the November election, we tried to warn people what our country was up against, and what the Democrats had in mind. Sadly, but not surprisingly, we have found ourselves to be right.

Law Enforcement Today is written primarily for law enforcement officers and those who support law enforcement. However, our audience has expanded to include those who support our military, our Constitution and all the liberty and freedom it guarantees and are God-fearing patriotic Americans.

A lot of our readers ask how you can get involved. With that in mind, we invite you to prayerfully consider our membership program—LET Unity. The proceeds raised from that program are used to reinvest into capturing more stories about the heroes who protect us at home on our law enforcement agencies, and those who protect us abroad in the United States military.

The majority of our content producers for Law Enforcement Today are active, retired or wounded law enforcement officers.  The revenue we make helps provide for their families and helps bring a TRUE voice about what’s happening in America.

For the rest of you… simply keep following, keep reading, and keep sharing. Especially sharing…the more people who read these stories, the better it is for our law enforcement and military brethren.

I, [name], do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So, help me God.

On July 4, 1776, a group of patriots decided they had suffered enough at the hands of the British monarchy. On that date, at tremendous risk of their own personal safety and more so their very lives, they put quill to paper and signed the greatest document ever forged. A document that gave birth to the greatest country ever to grace the face of the earth—the United States of America.

Yet here we are, 245 years nearly to the day that document was signed, and we find our country at a crossroads. When you look at all the great dynasties in the history of the world, all of them eventually collapsed. The Roman Empire…the British Empire…they number many.

Mortality.

It’s something that you don’t really consider when you’re young.  You can do anything.  You’re invincible.

But as we grow older, we start considering that mortality.

With all of that in mind, it’s time we start considering the mortality of America.

I spend a substantial amount of time working in two different arenas – the world of law enforcement and the business world.

By day, I run a marketing agency. Among the areas we work in, we do extensive work in the firearms industry.  My travels take me across the country – often to some of the most rural parts of America.

By night, I am the National Spokesman for Law Enforcement Today.  I’m not a police officer.  I was tapped because I can do one thing cops can’t do.  I can give them a voice.  I can run my mouth and no agency can fire me.

That travel that I referenced – both in the business world and supporting the LE world – has afforded me countless opportunities to work side by side with some of the greatest patriots in America.

My closest friends are either in law enforcement or either active or retired members of some of the most elite military forces in America.  And from our greatest warriors to our everyday citizens… I can tell you the underlying fear that so many are thinking about – and that’s the seemingly inevitable collapse of society if we don’t make some monumental changes.

As a Christian, I believe we are in the middle of some serious spiritual warfare.  But you don’t have to be a Christian to understand that the very soul of America is under attack right now.  And the rapid erosion of the Thin Blue Line has us sitting on a powder keg.

Historically, if you look at the collapse of some of the greatest empires in the world, it happened from within.  Simply put, it raises the distinct danger that America won’t be conquered by foreign enemies … but rather from domestic ones.

President Ronald Reagan probably put it best when he said, “ Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same.” Prophetic words indeed.

When historians say that an empire fell, it means that the central state no longer exercised its broad power.  That happens either because the state itself ceased to exist or because the state’s power was reduced as parts of the empire became independent of its control.

It typically doesn’t happen because of a single cause, but rather a long process.  The main factors that historically lead to imperial collapse are:

  • Economic issues
  • Social and cultural issues
  • Environmental issues
  • Political issues

Now none of these factors are causes in and of themselves, but rather are ways to categorize causes.

What that means is you wouldn’t decide that Rome fell because of politics, but rather you’d explore political factors to understand the collapse.  And in those issues are warning signs for us as Americans.

That brings me to the threat we face today.

Have you ever heard of something called the Cloward-Piven strategy? It’s not exactly something the mainstream media talks about… but it’s something you need to be aware of, because it’s what we’re facing in America today.

American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven created the political strategy in 1966.  The idea behind it is to overload the U.S. public welfare system to create a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a socialist system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”.

If that doesn’t describe what we’re seeing from Democrats who are running Congress and the White House right now, I don’t know what does.  But it’s a much bigger threat than you might realize.  That’s because it’s so incredibly pervasive.  It’s poisoning the very roots of America.

And it calls to mind the words of Jefferson:

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.”

We are seeing groups here in America demanding open borders.  Demanding the decriminalization of crossing into our country illegally. Since Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, we have seen our southern border over-run, not only from Mexican citizens but by people from all around the world, including some on terrorist watch lists.

Joe Biden assigned his vice president, Kamala Harris to oversee the border crisis, but in nearly three months since being given that assignment, Harris has not visited the border first-hand to see exactly what is going on—not once.

At the same time, across our great country, we are seeing the CRIMINALIZATION of law enforcement. All across the country, from Minneapolis to Portland, Los Angeles through Chicago to New York, there is a literal war on police. Major cities such as Seattle, Portland, Chicago and New York are seeing officers either retire early or outright leave. Morale in police departments across the country is in the toilet.

We’re seeing agencies desperate for officers, because as more and more retire (or count down the minutes to retirement), we see a deficit in the number of incoming recruits.  After all, why would you want to live a life of service when you’re just going to be attacked for that service?

In the aftermath of the George Floyd death in Minneapolis a year ago, we have seen primarily Democrats across the country demanding defunding of police, taking away protections such as qualified immunity from officers, and emasculating police to the point where even when they are completely justified in using deadly physical force, neo-Marxist groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa take to the streets to cause death and destruction.

One of the demands from activists was that police officers be required to be issued body cameras, which many jurisdictions have done. Yet, when police are put in the position of having to use deadly physical force, what is shown on the body cameras is not believed, called edited footage. It’s a classic heads I win, tails you lose for law enforcement officers.

We see political activists masquerading as police chiefs.  We see them working hand in hand with liberal politicians to not only attack the rights of law-abiding citizens, but also to destroy the morale of their own departments. We watch as they flat out disrespect the oath of office they took and put officers in no-win situations. Last year in the wake of the George Floyd death, we saw police chiefs kneeling on the ground with the very people who want them dead.

If I were to design a road map for how to collapse America, starting with law enforcement, here’s what it would look like.

Step one: Divide the protectors.

The refusal to allow rank and file patrol officers to cooperate with federal law enforcement to uphold the law.  It’s a slap in the face to Americans and it’s a dereliction of duty. It’s also a clear and intentional move to create a divide between local, state and federal law enforcement.  Divide the protectors… conquer a society.

Step two: Divide the supporters.

Force officers to choose between enforcing unconstitutional legislation like Red Flag laws, which deny citizens of their right to due process… and providing for their own family.

Since the beginning of  the coronavirus pandemic last year, we’ve seen draconian emergency orders put in place by power-hungry governors, with police officers being put in the position of having to be COVID cops or face discipline. We’ve seen videos of police officers arresting people at high school football games for not wearing a mask, breaking up groups of Hasidic Jews at a funeral in New York City and shutting down a gym in New Jersey for breaking COVID rules.

Make cops the bad guys.  Take the people who have historically supported law enforcement and convince them that cops are now the enemy.  Divide the supporters… conquer a society.

Step three: Remove their protection

Make cops afraid to be cops.  Encourage disrespect on them like water bucket attacks.  Don’t go after the criminals who attack them.  When officers arrest criminals, let them back out on the street within hours because a liberal judge determined that the violent suspect with a lengthy criminal history isn’t actually a threat.

In city after city across the country, we have seen George Soros-funded district attorneys such as George Gascon in Los Angeles, Kim Foxx in Chicago, Larry Krasner in Philadelphia and scores of others go light on criminals while going hard after police officers.

Then threaten law enforcement officers that if they do their job, they’ll be investigated.  That if they have to fight for their lives, they’ll end up being charged.  Remove both their desire and their ability to police.

Step four: Flood America  

By some estimates, one million people will make illegal entry into America this year.

There are fewer than 850,000 law enforcement officers in America.  Do the math.

Now let criminals create havoc in society but instead of deporting them or actually cracking down on crime, let Americans know that the real problem is guns owned by law abiding citizens and pass legislation to take away their rights.

Step five: Destroy our homes

Own the media.  Own Hollywood.  Force feed Anti-American, socialist and communist policies into our homes and our education system.  Convince our children that right is wrong and wrong is right.  Take God out of society, destroy the family structure and teach everyone that the solution to your problems is in the form of pills, porn and the government.

Step six: Destroy our schools

Keep children out of school for over a year for in-person learning. Feed kids anti-American propaganda such as the 1619 Project which teaches America was founded on racist principles by a bunch of white racist men. Erase history and replace it with critical race theory, which teaches white children to hate themselves and believe they have special privilege because of their race. Go completely against Dr. Martin Luther King’s edict that skin color is more important than the content of one’s character.

Step seven: Destroy our military and intelligence agencies

Turn our military and intelligence agencies into indoctrination mills where sexual preference or sexual identity is considered to be of primary importance while the more important mission of looking at what those who seek to destroy us are doing and making sure that the primary focus of the military is on killing people and breaking things, now the sexual identity of a soldier’s parents.

Step eight: Bypass Congress for gun control 

Have “private businesses” like Dicks and Walmart determine what you can and can’t buy. Let the White House determine by executive order what is and what is not an “assault rifle.”

Step nine: Lose control of the truth to tech tyrants and mainstream media

Allow Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, YouTube, LinkedIn, TikTok, and Snapchat determine what you can see and what you can say… because it’s not a violation of the Constitution if it’s done by private enterprise. Allow social media to have unfettered ability to censor content that they do not politically agree with or people who have an opinion that goes against the politically desirable narrative.

Step ten: Use “social justice” to vilify love of country 

Take every patriotic American who wants to see a better country for their children and call them a racist, etc. if you don’t agree with them.  Then mass report them on social media to make sure their accounts are cancelled, and their voices are shut down.

Then say you think they’re a threat and have a judge determine that combat veterans and our nation’s greatest warriors need to be disarmed because of post-traumatic stress.  Then force officers to go to war with their own brothers and sisters.

Take people who had legitimate concerns about last November’s election and who raised serious questions about events which made no sense and put them in the category of conspiracy theorists or worse yet, insurrectionists hell-bent on the destruction of the American way of life, which is absurd.

The Collapse

It’s happening right in front of our eyes.  And it’s starting with a full onslaught against our law enforcement officers in every way, shape and form.

Want to save America?  We need to start by understanding the enemy.  And sometimes the biggest threat that an empire faces is the enemy within.

We hope you’ll consider getting in the fight with us.  Here’s what Law Enforcement Today – the largest police-owned media outlet in America – is doing.

We at Law Enforcement Today want to make our stance very clear.

We strongly and firmly stand behind the Second Amendment, companies that keep civilians and law enforcement officers safe through products and innovation, and the men and women who serve and protect our communities and our country.

We are launching a new series of options to help our partners and other patriotic businesses to be able to connect with consumers. While we can’t replace Google, Bing or Facebook – we sure can provide options to ensure that these companies and our brothers and sisters have a voice.

We welcome with open arms companies that openly support law enforcement, and we are proud to offer them options to get their products to market.

We started noticing the problems a couple of years ago.  Social media was scaling back the reach of content that it didn’t believe people should see. Those problems continue today, with both myself as well as the founder of Law Enforcement Today, Robert Greenberg being kicked off of LinkedIn.

Not that there was anything offensive about it.  We’re talking about pro-police videos, stories about patriotic Americans and more.

And from our perspective, that created a huge problem.  We have some of the greatest warriors in the world.  Yet their voices and their stories were being buried.

The mainstream media, on the rare occasion that it would tell some of these stories, would give you only a piece of them.  They’d cram as much as they could into a 90 second segment, slap their bias on it and that was it.

We needed to fix it. And so we are.

Law Enforcement Today (LET) is proud to announce the launch of LET Unity – a new home focused on bridging the gap between civilians and civil servants.  We’ve merged with The Whiskey Patriots to massively expand content, rolling out hundreds of videos to members.

Many of those in our focus groups dubbed it the “Netflix of the law enforcement community”.  But the truth is, it’s so much more.

The first officer in the door at the Pulse nightclub shooting.

Emergency responders from the Parkland shooting.

The bomb squad that responded to the Aurora movie theater massacre.

Survivors of the Dallas five killings.

The first Marine Guard hostage in the Iran crisis.

The CIA agent who started a counter human trafficking company.

SWAT teams.

Sniper schools.

World War II veterans.

And so, so much more.

The membership is less than the cost of two coffees a month, and those who sign up for an annual membership will get some surprise bonuses in the mail.  We decided to charge a nominal fee so we could take all of the proceeds and reinvest them into capturing more of these stories.  The majority of our content producers for Law Enforcement Today are active, retired or wounded law enforcement officers.  The revenue we make helps provide for their families and helps bring a TRUE voice about what’s happening in America.

On top of that, we’re opening up the platform to some well-known podcasters who are going to be joining the team with some incredible content soon.

We have a problem in society.  Censorship has created an existential threat to democracy.  But even worse is the risk we run that some of these incredible stories of patriotism, hope, faith and our Sheepdogs would be lost.

We’ve launched a series of content with Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) to share the stories of survivors.  We will also be dropping a weekly law enforcement focused newscast that addresses some of the most important topics in the country… and helps bridge the gap between those who serve and those whom they serve.

On top of that, we’ll soon be rolling out a series of private discounts and special promotions to members only as a “thank you” for being a part of the family.

You can also download the app to watch the content right from your iPhone.

We hope you’ll join us in this journey, knowing that your membership is going to give a voice to those who have been silenced for so long.

Our country is currently at a crossroads, and with that, so are our brothers and sisters in law enforcement. Today more than ever, that thin blue line that protects the sheep from the wolves is more tenuous that at almost any time in our country’s history. We need to protect and endorse the sheepdogs—our police—who hold the wolves at bay. There has never been a more important time in our nation’s still young history when we need patriots to stand up and support our men and women on the front lines of this fight.

If you are one of the many companies out there that’s being censored – or you’re worried about what’s to come – don’t hesitate to reach out today. We are all in this fight together. I can be reached at [email protected]

We will not be silenced.  You shouldn’t be either.

God bless you all, and God Bless America.
