EXTREMISM: Protect students, society

| October 13, 2021 1:00 AM

School board members are resigning across the country as the result of extreme right wing nationalist assaults that are based on unfounded claims that our children are being taught Communist, Socialist and Critical Race theories. Their source of information comes from theorists such as QAnon and other sources that make unsubstantiated claims. The ultimate goal of these false claims seems like an attempt to dumb down our students and intimidate our teachers. If people of common sense and decency don’t step up and counter these disruptors, our civil society will be ruined.

History of the 1930s and 1940s Germany shows the National Socialists (NAZI) were successful in converting a country to an extremist and hateful society that was hell bent on violently pushing their extremist views on all of the people on Earth. Do we want a replay of that here?
