The National Education Association (NEA) yearly conference is winding down today and did they ever go broke for woke!
Mandatory masking and vaccinations, dropping the use of the words mother and father, the commitment to environmental racism and climate justice, are just some of the wild proposals being considered by NEA delegates this year.
In a report by The Gateway Pundit, the wokeness is evident in the organizations New Business Initiatives (NBIs), which are debated and voted on by about 6,000 delegates each year. The NBIs that pass become official NEA policy. According to the NEA:
“Each summer, approximately 6,000 educators meet to debate the vital issues that impact American public education and set National Education Association policy and activities for the year ahead. These delegates represent the 3 million members of the NEA.“
The Pundit reports on some of the more insane initiatives, which include:
“a national policy of mandatory masking and COVID vaccines in schools, as well as high-quality virtual education for immuno-compromised students and all families who want it.”
“ that the NEA will publicize its commitment to “young people’s right to learn about and develop their own sexual orientation and gender identity.”
“promotes language that is “LGBTQIA+ inclusive,” including using “birthing parent” and “non-birthing parent” instead of mother and father.”

“to spend $140,000 on researching the “largest 25 organizations that are actively working to diminish a students’ [sic] right to honesty in education, freedom of sexual identify [sic], and teacher autonomy.”
““publicly stand in defense of abortion” and calling abortion limits an attack on “students, families, and communities.”
One NBI even makes the claim that the majority of the 3 million members are “…social justice… female and trans and gender non-confirming folx,”
For those confused if the word “folx” is a misspelling, the word is actually in the Merriam-Webster online dictionary: “FOLKS —used especially to explicitly signal the inclusion of groups commonly marginalized“
According to the Pundit, the news about the NEA’s New Business Initiatives were broke by a North Carolinian, Terry Stoops, that follows education policy.
The NEA this year not only wades into the effort to nullify the 2nd Amendment (by posting Congressional positions on “gun safety” laws, but also wades into foreign policy by promoting the MSDNC propaganda by using NGO sources.
It seems that the NEA may be applying to be placed on the DOJ terror list, courtesy of AG Merrick Garland, by stating that school boards are “battlegrounds” and that it is imperative that the NEA commits to training “queer” soldiers to fight that battle.
It is curious that the NEA does not consider the insane CRT-based educational policies that have crept into schools the last few years as attacks.
If you complain that your daughter was turned into a boy by an activist teacher without your knowledge, or that the school hid the fact that your daughter was raped in the bathroom by a boy in a skirt that said he was a girl, that is a “right-wing attack on diversity, inclusion, and equity reform” and you may be declared a terrorist or even arrested.
Will the local school board races be the ones to watch this November? Things could get lit when pitting monied union-backed propaganda parrots against well-informed, evidence-based patriot parents–with little money but the drive to get out and talk to the voters.
