Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker just signed a bill into law that mandates the state’s schools teach “LGBTQ history” to students by the eighth grade. Ostensibly, the bill was meant to end bullying but will instead force the LGBTQ lifestyle on students whether they or their parents want it or not. Just as they do s*x education. The law will require schools to add the history of prominent LGBTQ Americans, according to the New York Post.
The law states that textbooks “must include the roles and contributions of all people protected under the Illinois Human Rights Act and must be non-discriminatory as to any of the characteristics under the Act.” It sounds good until you remember that they are removing history from school books and the schools themselves regarding the Founding Fathers. The bill is selective and discriminatory itself.
“One of the best ways to overcome intolerance is through education and exposure to different people and viewpoints,” sponsor State Sen. Heather Steans (D-Chicago) said. “An inclusive curriculum will not only teach an accurate version of history but also promote acceptance of the LGBTQ community.”
“It is my hope that teaching students about the valuable contributions LGBTQ individuals have made throughout history will create a safer environment with fewer incidents of harassment,” Steans exclaimed. “LGBTQ children and teenagers will also be able to gain new role models who share life experiences with them.”
“The new law’s goal is simple: to understand that people from different backgrounds deserve the same opportunity to learn and be recognized for their contributions in society as everyone else,” added State Rep. Anna Moeller.
“The bill passed the House by a vote of 60–42 and succeeded in the State Senate 37–17.
“G*y rights advocacy group Equality Illinois supported the bill and said the new requirements will have a “positive effect on students’ self-image and make their peers more accepting.”
“Illinois becomes the fifth state to pass a law mandating schools teach LGBTQ history.”
The curriculum will include topics ranging from the country’s first LGBTQ rights organization — the Society for Human Rights, launched in Chicago in 1924 — to a spotlight on Sally Ride, the first US woman in space and part of the LGBTQ movement.
“But not everyone is on board with Bill 246, which will formally take effect in July of next year. In fact, six states already prohibit the ‘promotion’ of homosexuality in their schools. These laws bar schools from talking about homosexuality in health or sex education classes.
“The executive director of the American Principles Project, Terry Schilling, believes activists aren’t acting in good faith. Schilling proposes they are hiding under the cloak of both historical awakening and anti-bullying to push “a very targeted expansion” of already explicit sex education courses. Consequently, he had some harsh words.
“I can’t think of anything weirder than being obsessed with teaching young children about sexuality. Even most parents struggle with this topic because of its difficulty, but somehow we as parents are OK with a complete stranger teaching them,” Schilling wrote in an email to The Christian Post Monday. “Parents need to reclaim their role as the primary educators of their children. No one else has that right or responsibility.”
“Also, Schilling argues this legislation comes as US students languish academically. Recent Pew research shows the U.S. is ranked 24th in science, 38th in math and 24th in reading.
“American children today don’t even know the basics of history. They are already essentially being taught that America was founded by white men who oppressed women and minorities instead of what America was really founded on — the notion of human dignity, that all men are created equal and have inalienable rights. And now, we are adding in completely irrelevant content to our schools.” He continues, drawing comparisons to secular religion. “These laws are not just an assault on the innocence of children; they are the imposition of a belief system through the public schools.”’
Additionally, the legislation requires schools also teach about the role of labor unions in achieving the goals of a mixed free enterprise system. It is referring to communists.
Both of these educational mandates are only enforced in public schools in Illinois. In private and charter schools, as well as homeschooling, they are not required… yet.
Illinois is a notoriously progressive state that pushes the recognition of LGBTQ rights, Marxism, and unions. Now, they are forcing schools to indoctrinate children into their political agenda and the parents have no say here. Time to pull your children out of the public school system.

B-List Actors Alyssa Milano & Rosie O’Donnell Head Trump ‘Impeachment Task Force’
You would think this is hilarious satire..but it’s not. Has-been actors truly believe that America looks to them for political advice. I know..I can’t stop laughing.
This is how insane and delusional the left is. Remember how they told us to accept the 2008 election results and just deal with it? Here we are…and they still can’t handle that Trump is President. They stay on twitter for hours..ranting, whining and lying about the President. The left should never ever allowed in power. Let these lunatics be a reminder to you when you go to vote in 2020.
Dear Hollywood has-beens, Americans don’t give a flying crap about what you have to say. You ain’t going to impeach the President. He’s not going anywhere. For the sake of America..go away. Don’t lecture the people about politics. No one looks to you for what’s going on in our country.
Just wait until Trump wins 2020…..
Via The Daily Wire:
If you’re worried about the current state of democracy, fear not: Alyssa Milano, Rosie O’Donnell, and their rich anti-Trump friends are here to save America … by working to remove the duly elected president from office.
Feel better now?
According to a Newsweek report, a group called The Democratic Coalition has created a star-studded “Impeachment Task Force” (seriously) “seeking to hold Trump ‘accountable for his betrayal of America.’”
The task force is “designed to lead rapid response to Trump during the impeachment inquiry,” according to The Democratic Coalition co-founder and Twitter #Resistance king Scott Dworkin.
We are now 33% towards our goal for the #ImpeachmentTaskForce! Help us get over the finish line so we can focus on the real work—and not fundraising. You can help out by donating, tweeting out the link and telling others to tweet out the link as well. Thx! https://t.co/dVCUJYq9tg
— Scott Dworkin (@funder) October 4, 2019
In addition to Milano and O’Donnell, the group has landed actors Ron Perlman, George Takei, Debra Messing, and Tom Arnold to use their “massive social media following to protect House Democrats in the front lines of the impeachment inquiry on Trump.”
“The task force launched a fundraising effort and basic plan on Thursday. The group has already started meeting and is set to go live with its website next week,” Newsweek reported.
Dworkin pointed to “Trump’s propaganda machine” as motivation in the creation of his elite task force.
“Trump’s propaganda machine is going to be in overdrive for the foreseeable future, so we need to be fighting every day, in every way,” he said.
“For now, impeachment is the only way to hold him accountable for his betrayal of America,” the task force’s chairman Jon Cooper added.
Dworkin is extremely optimistic that his ragtag group of celebs “will without a doubt, absolutely, overpower Trump’s propaganda machine.”
As you might recall, during the 2016 presidential election, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton had scores of celebrities come out to support her publicly — such as Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, LeBron James, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Bruce Springsteen, Robert De Niro, Lady Gaga, Jon Bon Jovi, Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer, and many, many others. As you might also recall, Hillary lost the 2016 election.
But it’s different this time. Or something.
“We’ve been one of the key groups fighting his propaganda machine for three and a half years,” Dworkin bragged. “We’ve learned a lot. And it’s kind of led us to this moment.”

WATCH: Photo Of College Student Praying Over Deputy In Restaurant Goes VIRAL
In today’s highly charged political climate, it’s always nice to have something in the news that isn’t negative. Last weekend, we got some rare, good news for a change.
A sheriff’s deputy & his wife were dining at a restaurant in east-central Florida when they were approached by a young man who asked if he could pray for the officer.
The encounter left the deputy’s wife in tears, and the rest of us cheering.
The Tampa Bay Times reported:
“For all of the venom and vitriol that fill our social media feeds, there are feel-good stories, too.
A reminder came this past weekend, when the wife of a Florida deputy shared a photo on Facebook describing an encounter at a Zaxby’s restaurant in DeLand in which a young man approached her husband, Cameron, and offered to pray over him for his protection.
“Tonight was a night that I will never forget. This picture is a reminder of God’s constant love and perfect timing. Tonight we had an amazing encounter with an incredible young man named Juan. He came up to Cameron and asked is he could pray over him and his protection. After crying my eyes out we got to have an amazing conversation with this gentleman. He was on FIRE for God and you could feel His presence in the room. He said that he had felt compelled to talk to us and to pray over Cameron, Justine Tucker wrote.”
Tonight was a night that I will never forget. This picture is a reminder of God’s constant love and perfect timing….
“The man, Juan O’Neal, is a student at Stetson University, according to his Facebook page.
As of Wednesday morning, the post had more than 42,000 reactions, 4,900 comments and 21,000 shares.
The post especially connected with Facebook users thirsting for positive news about people in their community.
“This is one of the main reasons why I stay connected to FB,” responded Reginald D. Alston. “There is love, kindness, compassion, respect, and general sense of caring among most people that seems to take a backseat to negativity and chaos all too often.”
“With everything that is wrong in America today, thank you for sharing this,” wrote Emily Broome Garrison. “It’s proof there’s still so much that is right!”
“People need these stories,” echoed Rachelle Bman.
Said Max Ludwig, “It’s great to wake up and see a beautiful post like this.”
“This gave me goosebumps!” wrote Monica Diaz.
Wondered Robert Cuccio, “Why are there not more stories of wonderful people like Juan?”
Tucker posted a segment from the local Fox station that covered the interaction.

WTVM9 reported of O’Neal:
“O’Neal says he never intended for the photo to go viral. In fact, he didn’t intend for a photo to be taken at all.
He says that he simply wanted to pray over Volusia County Sheriff’s Deputy Cameron Tucker.
“He grew up you know, dad is a [retired] police officer, a [retired] detective with the Columbus Police Department. So he knows some of the struggles, some of the things his dad had to go through,” said Juan’s mother Leisa O’Neal. “So for him to see another officer, he had an instant connection I’m sure, so it’s no big deal. I’m sure he was compelled to pray for him for everything that is going on in the world and the community so I think it was something he felt like he needed to do.”
“I just did what I felt like God was telling me to do,” said Juan O’Neal.
Juan is a senior at Stetson University in Florida. His mother says he is planning on commissioning into the U.S. Army in May.”
While all around us we seem to be bombarded with negativity, it’s great to see some of the next generation who haven’t forgotten what’s important in this life.
Hats off to O’Neal, and may he be successful in his endeavors.
