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!”

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was attacked by a former Republican colleague who alleged McCarthy and his fellow members of Congress have allowed the House GOP to become the official shill for the White House.

In a profile for the New York Times, former Oversight Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-VA) shamed the GOP House for the way that a once-respectable institution has fallen.

“Congress no longer operates as an independent branch of government, but as an appendage of the executive branch,” said Davis. “He is made for that role.”

Former senator reveals to Maddow how one brave Democrat can reveal key document in impeachment trial

Published

on

Near the end of Wednesday's impeachment trial, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that an agreement had been made to allow senators to read supplemental testimony from Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams.

The document will remain classified, despite claims that there is no classified material in the document, only evidence that is damning to the president.

"In terms of this document potentially being improperly classified, which is something that has been raised in writing by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and raised on the floor of the Senate tonight by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow noted. "Obviously, it was the vice president's office that said it was classified, they are getting publicly criticized for that. If it has been improperly classified and it should be something that the public can see, who adjudicates that?"

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz admits Trump’s legal defense was ‘like an 8th grade book report’ — only worse

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) admitted that President Donald Trump's team of lawyers weren't quite the legal eagles that he thinks they might be, said Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio.

Questioned about his take on the way the case is unfolding in the Senate, Gaetz said that the House presented it like it was going to be on "cable news." For many that may be an insult, but it appears to Gaetz that was a compliment.

Desiderio said that Gaetz then lamented that the White House presented their case more like “an 8th-grade book report.”
