THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Well, we’ve seen it all now. For those of you following the East Aurora School Board comedy of errors, be advised that the board decided that an angry mob that interrupted their Ad Hoc committee assigned with coming up with a transgender policy for kids, spoke for the entire community. This mob was so convincing that the board voted unanimously to disbanded the Ad Hoc committee and take a trans policy completely off the table. The victory here goes to anti-transgender hate group the Illinois Family Institute.
At this point I don’t know which group is the lessor evil — a widely recognized hate group or a school board scared stiff of them.
The Civil Rights Agenda’ Anthony Martinez, “I think it was a failure of leadership by the school board. I think the folks handling this from the beginning were out of their depth. You only have to look and see that the Ad Hoc committee never once discussed the matter of policy. All we did was sit and listen to people voice their displeasure.”
Unless someone thinks there is a legal avenue to pursue, the burden is now on the citizens living in this district to bring in new board members more in tune with the 21st century.
