If you are older than 30 and have noticed that the high school where you attended isn’t exactly what it used to be…..YOU ARE RIGHT!
There might be police officers at the door, Marxists in the classroom, and the ACLU checking out the nuances of all the sexual expressions which might be in the breeze from classroom to classroom. ACLU is interested in pidgeon holes awaiting a mix-up. After all, the American Civil Liberties Union is the Fountain of Fortune for lefty trial lawyers making millions off of your neighborhood public school and its taxpayers.
No institution has damaged the nation’s public education more over the past two generations than the American Civil Liberties…..first with its attack on Christianity, and now with its interest in adolescent sex.
Its trial lawyers share their bullions with Obama’s Leftwing of the Democrat Party.
I was interested in what connection the ACLU might have with Itawamba Agriculltural High School in Mississippi besides looking for more bullion to further intimidate America’s local high school alma maters. The school is being sued by the ACLU. I found the following from the lesbian website, Get Busy, Get Equal:
“In the era of Will & Grace, Portia & Ellen and Neil & John, it’s hard to believe that there’s a public school in America that would insist on holding a “straights-only” prom or else none at all. But sure enough, Itawamba Agricultural High School in Fulton, Mississippi is trying to do just that.
Constance McMillen, an 18 year-old senior at IAHS, approached her school’s administration because she wanted to attend prom with her girlfriend, also an IAHS student, and knew that same-sex dates had been banned in the past. After meeting with school officials, she was told that she and her girlfriend would not be allowed to attend together. Constance was also warned that they would be thrown out even if they came separately but tried to slow dance with each other or even if their presence made other students “uncomfortable.”
That’s when Constance contacted the ACLU, and we sent the school a letter demanding that they respect her constitutional right to bring a female student as her prom date and to wear a tux. The school board met over the issue and, apparently, saw that there was no way they could hold a prom and not allow Constance and her girlfriend to attend.
So they canceled it.
What is up with that? As Constance has said “prom is one of those high school moments everyone should get to experience and enjoy.” How did this school board decide that it would be better to rob the entire school of that experience rather than let two of their own students attend together? Are they stuck in 1953?
Today we filed a lawsuit in federal court that charges that school officials are violating Constance’s First Amendment rights to freedom of expression. We will be asking the court in the next week to grant a preliminary injunction ordering the school to reinstate the April 2nd prom.
Constance’s story has struck a chord with the media and she’s been featured in everything from USAToday to the front page of Yahoo! We hope all the national media attention will shock the school board to their senses and that – for the good of ALL of their students – they’ll hold the prom and allow Constance and her girlfriend to attend. And if they do, we’ll be the first to welcome them to 2010.

Comment: I wanted to know more about this site and discovered it has a direct link to the ACLU…ironically the CL stands for Civil Liberties, remember. The directions I followed led me to the following press release at the American Civil Liberties website:
”The American Civil Liberties Union launched a new version of its Get Busy, Get Equal online activist toolkit, www.aclu.org/getequal . Get Busy, Get Equal now incorporates new technology to make it easier for LGBT people to work for change in their communities. The website offers tools for ending gay and transgender discrimination, making schools safe, and winning recognition for LGBT relationships.
“Partly because of all the awful anti-marriage initiatives of the past few years, Americans are aware of and talking about LGBT issues more than they ever have before. We need to take advantage of that and make the case that the only fair treatment for LGBT people is equal treatment,” said Matt Coles, Director of the ACLU LGBT Project. “There is no better way to move people than to have conversations between LGBT people and other Americans. And there may be no better way to make those conversations happen than to work together on proposing nondiscrimination laws or domestic partnership policies in towns, cities and counties, or even in workplaces.”
The new toolkit includes a blog to give users insight into how to make local change a reality. It also includes a five-day-a-week roundup of LGBT news from across the nation. Short videos of ACLU clients that users can share with friends and family members put a human face on the issues and help spark meaningful conversations about what it means to face discrimination because of sexual orientation or gender identity. LGBT Project staff will record podcasts to give users an insider perspective on what is happening in the movement.
At the core of the site are the tools that LGBT people need to work for change at the national, state and local level. These tools range from things users can do in their spare time on their computers like sending letters to elected officials to straightforward directions on how to organize and pass safe schools policies, domestic partnership registries and nondiscrimination ordinances.
The site also takes advantage of social networking websites to make it easier for activists to connect with others and organize. “The web makes it incredibly easy for likeminded people to find each other and work for change,” added Coles. “And there is one thing I can guarantee after having done this more than a few times myself: you will be hard pressed to find anything quite so absorbing, quite so exhilarating, or quite so much fun as working with a few other possessed companions to pass a local law.”
In his inaugural blog post for www.aclu.org/getequal , Coles writes about his early efforts organizing and fighting for LGBT equality in San Francisco. In a podcast for the site, he talks about the fun and excitement that comes with working to pass local ordinances.” “
(Further comment.. I cannot think of many groups of Americans which have so befouled the cause they allegedly represent as the organized gay and lesbian community in this country…..They are driven by hate and hysteria, paranoia and depravity……..justified in their view by the enormity of their alleged suffering.
Suffering does exist in the homosexual and will exist as long as there will be mystery and the unknown. I can express this with certainty from my own life’s experience. No other group I am aware of is more crippled by its own narcissism and its own sickness of exaggerated self importance than the Gay and Lesbian models they create and emulate.
Like all modern Leftwing sleaze, they manipulate and regurgitate words made beautful by their mere utterance…..freedom, liberty, love, friendship, civil rights, equality, remindful of the president the gay and lesbian masses worked hard to elect, Mr. Obama. Truth from their mouths has no meaning.
Gay politics has no business in the American public school …..PERIOD.
