On Monday, we posted about Fairfax County School Board member Elizabeth Schultz retweeting the neo-Nazi “Pepe the Frog” symbol, along with a message in support of French far-right/neo-fascist presidential candidate Marine Le Pen. Now, Schultz is slated to appear on a panel put on by the “Family Research Council” entitled “Transgender Ideology in Public Schools: Parents Fight Back.”
It’s for very good reason that the Southern Poverty Law Center labels the Family Research Council (FRC) as a hate group, one whose “real specialty” is not “family research” but “defaming gays and lesbians.” For instance, check out the following video of FRC “senior fellow” Robert Maginnis ranting/raving about how there’s a “lot of witchcraft” in Dupont Circle, “famous for being the center of homosexuality in Washington,” and which reminds Maginnis of “Sodom and Gomorrah.”
So yeah, Fairfax County School Board member Elizabeth Schultz will be appearing on an anti-LGBT panel organized by the FRC, which employs the above lunatic as a “senior fellow.” By the way, you’ve gotta love how the FRC describes Schultz:
Ms. Schultz received the first STAND Award by Bishop E.W. Jackson at the National Awakening Conference “for her bold stand for faith and values, in the face of opposition. She was the only member of the Fairfax County School Board to vote against embedding gender-identity into FCPS policies and continues to stand strong representing the otherwise ignored values of many Fairfax County parents.” She was also received the Courage in Leadership Award by the Virginia Christian Alliance for integrity in education policy and for protecting students and parental rights while serving in public office.
How can someone like this be on the Fairfax County School Board? It boggles the mind.
