Sorry, “Lead Stories,” Minnesota Democrats really did vote for elementary school pornography when they voted for HF2400.
Whenever the left doesn’t like a news story that tells the truth and exposes their nefarious agendas, they immediately claim the story is “fake news.”
This is what happened last week when a Snopes-wannabe website called “Lead Stories”, (a website created by former CNN “journalist” Alan Duke) accused us, The Deplorable Housewives of the Midwest, of writing a fake news story. The article in question is “MN Democrats Vote For Elementary School Pornography”.
“MN Democrats Vote For Elementary School Pornography” reported that the Democrats in the Minnesota State House refused to remove the Comprehensive Sex Education (CSE) curriculum mandate from the House Education Omnibus bill, known as HF2400. Apparently, we are over the target because Lead Stories is now accusing us of pedaling a fake news story because they are yet another left-leaning website created to discredit conservatives who are telling the truth.
Lead Stories, in an attempt to defend the “Comprehensive Sex Education” agenda in public schools, tried to discredit our report by saying we falsely claimed the curriculum would be developed by Planned Parenthood which may include the use of the controversial book, “It’s Perfectly Normal”.
Although Lead Stories claims that The Deplorable Housewives has no proof that Planned Parenthood is helping to design the CSE curriculum, the Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund admits on its website, “It’s important that we create a statewide, inclusive curriculum for comprehensive sex in Minnesota.”
Child Protection League Action (CPL) of Minnesota stated in a press release that Planned Parenthood would provide the CSE curriculum and has lobbied hard for this legislation. The Guttmacher Institute, an affiliate of Planned Parenthood, is expected to be developing the state model policy. The Institute was first started in 1968 as part of Planned Parenthood.
Further proof that Planned Parenthood is behind CSE came from internationally recognized expert and medical doctor, Dr. Miriam Grossman, who said, “Who came up with the notion that it’s necessary to teach the world’s children about high-risk sex acts their parents never heard of? Planned Parenthood and the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS). These groups portray themselves as guardians of our children’s health and claim to provide students with all the information and skills they need to make smart choices. Their curricula, they declare, are comprehensive, age-appropriate, ideologically neutral, and medically accurate.”
According to the website, StopCSE.org, “It’s Perfectly Normal” is one of the books that although is not an official part of any one CSE curriculum, is a supplemental tool that is being utilized in and out of the classroom and is provided as an additional reference for children to explore. Using illustrations, the book shows completely nude men and women having sex and of graphically naked drawings of boys and girls in a variety of sexual situations. Planned Parenthood recommends “It’s Perfectly Normal” to parents who wish to talk to their children about sexuality and reproduction and their website says the organization, which is known primarily for abortions, plays a role in teaching sex education. “Planned Parenthood education staff reach 1.5 million individuals each year and 64% of those individuals are middle school and high school aged youth,” the website boasts.
Minnesota Rep. Eric Lucero (R-MN 30B) expressed disgust and disdain that “It’s Perfectly Normal” could be used in the CSE curriculum in Minnesota. Lucero read excerpts from the book on the floor of the Minnesota House during the CSE debate and emphasized the sexually explicit and graphic nature of the book are not suitable for young children. Lucero urged the lawmakers to remove the CSE mandate from the House Education Omnibus bill:
On April 23, 2019, the Minnesota House of Representatives passed the Minnesota House Education Omnibus bill, which included the controversial CSE mandate. Every House Democrat except for Rep. Gene Pelowski (D, MN-28A) and Rep. Dave Lislegard (D, MN-6B) voted to retain the mandate in the bill by a 73-58 vote.
The story we wrote went viral, receiving over 1,600 shares on Facebook and nearly 230,000 page views on the Deplorable Housewives website. Angry parents called their legislators.
Thankfully the CSE mandate failed to pass the 2019 Minnesota legislative session. However, there is a chance that it will come up again in future legislative sessions.
Minnesota is not the only state dealing with this. It appears this corrosive agenda is being implemented in school districts across the country.
Parents in California who were opposed to the state’s CSE curriculum held rallies this month outside county education department offices throughout Southern California demanding that schools stop exposing their children to controversial sexual content like homosexuality and gender-fluidity. Parents in 46 out of 58 counties participated in the rallies and thousands of students were kept out of schools across the state according to organizers of the protest.
The East Bay Times reported that California legislators passed the “California Healthy Youth Act” in 2015 which requires school districts throughout the state to provide students with comprehensive sexual health education. The guidelines include talking to kindergarteners about gender identity, using language that is inclusive of the LGBTQ community and advising children about safe sex, masturbation, contraception, navigating relationships and recognizing signs of abuse. That is a lot of information to throw at a five-year-old who should be learning letters and numbers at this age.
“Schools have no business teaching kids about anal sex and dental dams,” John Berry, a father of a California high school student who was one of the protesters outside the San Bernardino County Office of Education said to the East Bay Times. “Why is the state of California pushing this on students?”
And why is an alleged fact-checking website like Lead Stories accusing us of lying about a story on the comprehensive sex education curriculum when clearly this is happening in Minnesota and California?
The man behind Lead Stories is a guy named Alan Duke. According to his bio, Duke founded Lead Stories after a 26-year career with CNN. CNN, as we all know, is the least trusted news source in America. Duke lamely attempts to discredit news sources by using his Trendolizer™ engine (I’m not joking) to detect what he deems to be “fake news.”
Looks like your Trendolizer isn’t working property there, Alan, because what we wrote is the truth.
Lead Stories is reminiscent of the Orwellian website “Attack Watch” from a few years ago, which was created to report any bad news stories or reports that were written against thin-skinned former president Barack Obama. It is also a crappy knock off of Snopes, which has already been proven many times to be a left-leaning website that regularly attacks and discredits conservative news outlets. Snopes credibility was deeply damaged when its founder, David Mikkelson, embezzled almost $100K in company funds which he spent on himself and prostitutes he hired, according to legal documents filed by his ex-wife and Snopes co-founder Barbara Mikkelson. But that didn’t stop Facebook from using Snopes to fact-check “misinformation” on the social media giant. Snopes is no longer being used as a fact-checking source on Facebook since earlier this year.
The Deplorable Housewives of the Midwest commits ourselves to”serving up a slice of truth” to our readers. Sadly, sometimes, people just can’t handle the truth.
