Are Caddo & Bossier School Lunches in Jeopardy?
The left continues to demonstrate that there are no depths too low that they will not stoop to to push their liberal agenda. The latest disgusting attempt is to use our school children's nutrition to manipulate you to support biological males being allowed to go into girls bathrooms, and vice-versa.
According to the fns.usda.gov website:
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) announced today that it will interpret the prohibition on discrimination based on sex found in Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and in the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008, as amended, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly the Food Stamp Program (7 USC § 2011 et seq.), to include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Under the leadership of the Biden-Harris Administration, USDA and FNS are issuing this interpretation to help ensure its programs are open, accessible and help promote food and nutrition security, regardless of demographics.
Basically, this is saying... if you don't agree with allowing boys into girls restrooms, allowing biologic males to compete against girls, as girls... you don't want your children to have access to good nutrition, and you're a homophobic, sexual-gender orientation bigot. They are using "food and nutrition security" as a weapon to further their leftist agenda. I've never heard one single report of any child being denied access to school lunches because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. But that is where this administration has taken this fight.
Also from fns.usda.gov, here is a quote from Bidenflations' Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack:
“USDA is committed to administering all its programs with equity and fairness, and serving those in need with the highest dignity. A key step in advancing these principles is rooting out discrimination in any form – including discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity,” said Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. “At the same time, we must recognize the vulnerability of the LGBTQI+ communities and provide them with an avenue to grieve any discrimination they face. We hope that by standing firm against these inequities we will help bring about much-needed change.”
Louisiana Education Superintendent Cade Brumley told KEEL News when asked if this was real, and is it too extreme?
Clearly that's too extreme, I think, for us in the state of Louisiana, it's too extreme for me. I have provided a letter to the feds that I gave them yesterday, asking them for clarification on this particular issue. I want to know what their position is... I want to know what they are suggesting consequences would be for schools that would not comply with whatever conditions they outline. Because I do think this is a very relative issue in the state of Louisiana right now, and I need to know, in fact, what their intents are behind some of the information they are putting out so that I can know what we need to do in the state of Louisiana, so that we have the environments that we think are best for our kids.
What's right is wrong... what's wrong is right.... and the best recourse you have is to educate yourself on the issues and candidates, and vote for those that best represent what we believe.
