Far-Far-Right Fairfax County School Board Member Recommends Video by Rabid Bigot, Extremist


On any given day, if you want some serious insanity, you can always count on social media to deliver. Today, one of the craziest things I came across on the “intertubes” is by Fairfax County School Board member Elizabeth Schultz (R), best known recently for her frenzied crusade against protections for transgender students in the Fairfax County Public School system. But if you follow her Twitter feed, you’ll quickly find that her extremism goes far beyond LGBT-related issues.

For instance, a recent tweet by Schultz urged people to “Seriously, watch this NOW.” I was curious, so I clicked on the video. Big mistake! Seriously, the video is almost beyond belief as to how bad – laughably so, if this kind of thing could be laughed at and not taken deadly seriously – it is. It gets even worse when you do a bit of Googling on the guy behind it, far-right-wing radio host Dennis Prager.

But first, here are a few “highlights” from the video Schultz so strongly recommends.

  • Prager argues that after-school clubs for LGBT, African-American or Latino kids “cultivate narcissism” and should all be abolished and banned.
  • He declares, “We will end all self-esteem programs”
  • He further asserts that schools should “no longer honor race or ethnicity.”
  • And check out this tirade against…science, reason and modernity, pretty much: “I am reorienting the school toward academics and away from politics and propaganda. No more time will be devoted to racism, sexism, Islamophobia, homophobia, global warming, tobacco or gender identity. No more classes will be devoted to condom wearing and teaching you to regard sexual relations as no more than a health issue.”

Yes, among other things this lunatic actually lumped in global warming (a scientific fact) and tobacco (an important crop in American history, among other things) as constituting “politics and propaganda.” You can’t make this crap up.

So who is this wacko Dennis Prager, the person who Fairfax County School Board member Elizabeth Schultz believes everyone needs to watch “NOW?” A few minutes of Googling tells the story:

I mean, I could go on all day with this, but by now I’m confident that you get the idea – and also feel like you need to take a long, hot shower. As for the relevance to Virginia, again it’s that this extremist nutter is being strongly recommended by a member of the Fairfax County School Board, Republican Elizabeth Schultz. That should be truly disturbing to every Fairfax County parent (or non-parent, for that matter). The question is, how the heck did someone like Schultz – the LAST person you’d ever want dealing with the education of children! – get on the Fairfax County School Board in the first place, and when the hell are Democrats going to run a strong challenger against her?
