Actions and rhetoric by Trump’s circle of sinners proves that they are as depraved as their boss. None is more despicable than Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos.
Totally unqualified for her position, the billionaire has supported Christianity, while she isolated African Americans, and denounced LGBTQ students. The reason she was nominated is solely based on the millions of dollars she donated to Trump and other Republicans.
Just last week DeVos ordered her department’s ‘Office for Civil Rights’ to withdraw its findings that an elementary school student in Spartan, Ohio, had suffered harassment, and mental stress at the hands of the school and other students. This case has been ongoing for a very long time; the trans-gendered student had been barred from using the girls restroom.
The case is now in the legal system.
“This is so dangerous,” said Shannon Minter of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, which is representing the Ohio student, identified only as Jane Doe, in a lawsuit against the school district. “They have just sent a message to schools that it’s open season on transgender students.”
DeVos has a singular agenda; to eliminate the public school system, and offer vouchers for America’s children to attend private schools. Her focus is on Christian schools which traditionally offer the least diverse and least successful education to their students. When asked if this proposal could be ‘discriminatory’ by congress she denied the facts. Private schools are notorious for bigotry and discrimination.
DeVos has begun a war on the LGBTQ community, and African American children who dominate the numbers in our inner city schools.
Trump’s agenda and his selection of advisers and cabinet members has proven that America has entered a new era; an era of racism and bigotry not experienced in modern history. Even in the civil rights movement of the 1960’s the government refused to support the dark side of our nation’s people. With Trump as their leader, prejudice, hatred, and violence have reached new levels of disgust.
Trump and his circle of sinners must not only be removed from Washington, they must be exiled from our nation’s shores. It is unacceptable to have these anti-Americans in our midst.
Please re-post; thank you.
