The Loudoun County School Board in Virginia met to hear public comments about their controversial proposed transgender policy that makes teachers call biological boys “girls” and girls “boys” on June 22. Transgender sports and mix sex bathrooms and locker rooms also were discussed.

Elementary school teacher Tanner Cross was yanked from the classroom for criticizing the transgender policy during a school board public hearing. Over 600 angry parents and citizens gathered to lambaste the Marxist-leaning school board and the radical Gang of Six who are all subject to ongoing recall petitions.

Retired Senator Dick Black was the 70th speaker who rose to the podium for a 1-minute presentation. By then, the packed house was like a tender box. Here’s what he said:

“I’m retired Senator Dick Black of Ashburn, Virginia.

“You retaliated against Tanner Cross by yanking him from teaching for addressing a public hearing of this board. The judge ordered you to reinstate Mr. Cross, because if his comments weren’t protected speech, then free speech doesn’t exist at all.

“It’s absurd and immoral for teachers to call boys “girls” and girls “boys.” You’re making teachers lie to their students, and kids know it’s wrong.

“This board has a dark history of suppressing free speech. They caught you red-handed, with an enemies list to punish opponents of Critical Race Theory.

“You’re teaching children to hate others because of their skin color, and forcing them to lie about kids’ gender. I’m disgusted by your bigotry and your depravity. It’s time to replace the radical Gang of Six with people who care about education.”

At that, the audience exploded with applause, waving signs, jumping on their seats shouting at the board, and taking control of the meeting. The school board left the room as the pro family elements took control, cheering wildly. For the next two hours, they continued giving speeches and demonstrated.
