A MAGA mom identified only as Jenna confronted the Texas State Board of Education over her concern that her first grade daughter is being taught about Gandhi and peaceful protests. She feels that this is somehow the fault of CRT, globalism and the Southern Border:

"You refer to our flag, bonnets and mockingbirds as a significant symbol to a Texas community," the mother opined. "No, these are emblems of identity and instill pride and connection with our home."

She said that learning about "the importance of collaborating with various cultures" was inappropriate because children should learn about their own "culture" first.

"This revision wants to teach a first grader who is still putting notes to the tooth fairy under her pillow about following Gandhi's lead to a peaceful protest," Jenna gasped. "A first grader! CRT is already rampant and baked into our curriculum and we don't want to be good little global citizens where our borders are considered a military zone."

"It's a border and it's good!" she exclaimed. "Teach that. This is the land of the free, home of the brave. Be brave!"

State Board of Education Member Marisa B. Perez-Diaz confronted MAGA Mom about being unable to specify what specific teaching point she was complaining about, which, in my opinion, was simple bureaucratic hodge podge and was counterproductive.

It was obvious that Jenna didn't have a clue as to what she was talking about and was just spewing regurgitated right wing talking points. The most telling point is when Jenna became defensive and stated she was not an expert, did not have a PhD and was not an educator. She single-handedly blew up the right's argument that parents know what's best for their children.

It just shows the fear and hatred that they have pumped into their skulls day in and day out by Fox, squawk radio and other fascists.
