Lunacy: Nation's Largest Teacher's Union Sought to Change 'Mother' To 'Birthing Parent'

More and more American parents are taking their kids out of our culturally polluted public school system and placing them in private, charter, and religious institutions so that they can escape the insanity.

And it is little wonder why, as evidenced by the latest left-wing outrage being pushed by the overtly politicized teachers’ unions.

As reported by Fox News, the National Education Association isn’t concerned that American students are behind the rest of the first world in math, science, and arithmetic or that a growing number of them are being taught to hate their own country — the nation’s largest teacher’s union is laser-focused on changing the term ‘mother’ to ‘birthing people.’

And why? Well, to be ‘inclusive’ to the LGBTQ community, of course:

NEA’s resolutions, called new business items (NBI) represent the teachers’ union’s opinions and beliefs. Many resolutions were voted by the Representative Assembly (RA), comprised of 6,000 educators, in Chicago as well as virtually. The resolution on the language change – NBI 63 – was ultimately not brought to a vote. 

“Using this contract language, members need not worry about how a Board of Education/solicitor defines ‘maternity leave,’ ‘mother,’ and/or ‘father’; the language is an inclusive reflection of how LGBTQIA+ members build families,” the proposed resolution said.

NBI’s are proposed by the union’s delegates. It takes 50 delegate sponsors to bring the NBI to the RA floor for debate and then to a vote, according to Education Week. 

Tiffany Justice, with the group Moms for Liberty, told Fox News that she now refers to the NEA as the “K-12 Cartel” because of the way they hold parents and their children hostage to their radical left-wing agenda.

“We believe in American teachers, and we don’t believe that the lack of focus that the union has on children is represented,” she said.

“Normal people don’t use the term ‘chestfeeding’ or ‘birthing person’ or any of this stuff,” Nicole Neily of Parents Defending Education added. “I think it just further underscores how completely out of touch the teachers’ unions… are from the concerns of normal parents.”

“It’s horrifying,” she told the outlet.

Elana Fishbein from No Left Turn in Education noted further that the proposed resolution is further evidence of the left’s push to destroy the traditional American family.

“They are arrogant. They are dismissive of the family, the parents. It’s beyond Orwellian. Even in science fiction, I don’t know if you can have such a script of complete destruction of human society,” she said.

Fox News notes further:

NEA delegates struck down a proposed resolution that would support a “national policy of mandatory masking and COVID vaccines in schools.” A similar NEA resolution was proposed last year and was also scrapped by delegate voters. 

Past year’s resolutions included support for reparations.

“The Association acknowledges that both historical and current practices have systematically advantaged and privileged people of White European ancestry while disadvantaging and denying rights, opportunities, and equality for people of color,” said a resolution regarding ‘racial justice.’

Yet another resolution called on educators to fight back against allegedly “institutionally racist systems” — whatever those are.

“The National Education Association believes that, in order to achieve racial and social justice, educators must acknowledge the existence of white supremacy culture as a primary root cause of institutional racism, structural racism, and white privilege,” said the resolution.

“The Association believes that school districts must provide training in cultural competence, implicit bias, restorative practices and techniques, and racial justice,” it added, without, of course, mentioning anything about teaching civics 101, math, and science along with better reading comprehension and writing skills, all of which used to comprise the core of American public education.

Another resolution called for the protection of the rights of the accused in child abuse cases. “Any such allegation should be investigated and resolved immediately without name disclosure,” the resolution on allegations against employees said. “The National Education Association believes education employees should be protected from allegations of child abuse made in bad faith.”

And, apparently, allegations of child abuse made in good faith.

These people are no longer ‘educators.’ They are counterrevolutionary propagandists, and ‘Exhibit A’ for why Americans need to scrap the public education system as it is currently comprised and financed and replace it with locally-managed systems instead.

The only way to stop this radical insanity is to strip power away from the left’s destructive culture warriors.
