Conservatives flip out over revamped Nebraska sex ed classes: It ‘rapes children’ with information

Published

on

The fight over a revamped sex education curriculum in Omaha continued Monday, with parents crowding into a public meeting to either support or denounce it, KETV reports.

The new curriculum proposed by Omaha Public Schools officials includes information about LGBT people, STDs, HIV and AIDS, as well as lessons on abstinence versus contraception, the station reports. But outside groups like Save Nebraska Children, which oppose the changes, have gotten involved. Save Nebraska Children has paid for advertising on the issue.

“Yes we need to give children an education,” one woman said. “But the curriculum you have, the standards you have, gives children too much information. It rapes children of their innocence.”

Another angry woman compared giving students the information to giving alcohol to alcoholics.

“Just because kids want to drink, are you give them a bottle of alcohol to help with alcoholism?” the woman demanded. “You all need to stop with all this hidden agenda stuff.”

While some voiced support for the new curriculum, others claimed it’s part of a wider agenda.

“It’s not appropriate for children and it’s really ideologically driven,” Maris Bentley, a volunteer with Save Nebraska Children, told KETV.

Meetings on OPS’ proposed new curriculum last exploded into chaos in October. One woman was caught on video screaming, “It’s my daughter! My daughter! Who’s going to keep her pure? Nobody! I am! Not OPS! Not OPS!”

"At this point, the bigger national scandal isn’t the president’s lawbreaking behavior - it is the Democratic Party’s refusal to impeach him for it," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Saturday night.

‘Should we talk about Ivanka?’: MSNBC guest calls for Trump family investigation if Biden’s son is scrutinized

Published

During a panel discussion on Donald Trump's call for an investigation of Joe Biden's son Hunter over his Ukraine dealings, an "AM Joy" guest said if Congress is going to investigate politician's kids why not start with Ivanka Trump and her brothers Don Jr. and Eric.

Speaking with MSNBC host Joy Reid, Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan called out President Donald Trump for his "brazenness" going after the former vice president's son.

"There's so much to say about this story, as for the Ukrainian denials, what are they going to do, come out and say, 'Yes, Donald Trump did pressure our president eight times in a single phone call'? It's absurd." Hasan began.

Tapper smacks Mnuchin with Trump kids’ international business deals after attack on Biden son

Published

on

In a fairly contentious interview with Steve Mnuchin, CNN host Jake Tapper pointed out how Donald Trump's children -- Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric -- have been using their father's name to swing international deals after the Treasury secretary accused former Vice President Joe Biden's son of doing the same.

Mnuchin first dismissed reporting by the Washington Post and the conservative Wall Street Journal that Donald Trump was withholding Ukraine funding in an effort to get dirt on Biden and his son -- saying neither newspaper could be trusted -- he then complained to the CNN host about having to spend seven and a half minutes talking about Trump's Ukraine scandal.
