Cultural Appropriation: *”Isn’t that special?”*


We’ve filled you in previously on the very “special” counsel to GOP legislative leaders.  From picking a fight with me, to bashing Donald Trump, to apparently blessing the works of our local social justice warriors, Brent Woodcox continues to amaze and dumbfound.  

Some background first on this latest episode:

And here’s our favorite Amazon warrior princess — and right-thinking blogger — Raleigh’s Lady Liberty giving us the 411 on ol’ Lauryn:

[…]

In April of this year, I warned parents with students in Wake County Public Schools about the hiring of  Lauryn Mascareñaz.  She had previously worked for the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Teaching Tolerance” indoctrination group.[…] 

Aaaah, the SPLC.  They get a lot of driveby media airtime for labeling just about EVERY grassroots conservative group a “hate group.”   *Niiiiiiice bunch of people.*

MORE:

[…] Wake County hired Mascareñaz for the Office of Equity Affairs. To date, I can see no purpose for or value of this office whatsoever.

It’s a mystery why Wake County taxpayers are ponying up over $507,000 a year for an ‘Equity Office’ staffed by only three people.  Mascareñaz is making $85,000.

By the way, the salaries of those three people at the ‘Office of Equity Affairs’ account for roughly $302,000 of that $507,000. That’s enough money to fund 10 classroom teachers at an average of $50,000.00 a year.

Meanwhile, teachers complain that Wake County does not give them the supplies they need, that their schools are in disrepair, that the trailers which were supposed to be temporary are falling apart and that they more money in their check.

And Wake County School Board is complaining they can’t live within a $1.2 billion dollar budget, that they can’t afford to follow the now 4 year old class size reduction mandate and that they need YET ANOTHER BOND just to keep the lights on.

But hey, our betters over at Equity Affairs are virtue signaling on Twitter about that teacher who might be having kids dress up as Pilgrims and Indians.

Spare us your finger-wagging, virtue signaling crap, Ms. Mascareñaz.
Why not go give Elizabeth ‘Fauxchahontas’ Warren a hard time instead and leave the teachers and kids alone?

Then along came some, um, “help” for ol’ Lauryn from Tim Moore and Phil Berger’s “special” counsel:

Holy cow.  He sounds like John Hood.  (Must be something in the water up there in Raleigh.)

So, we have to keep shelling out her big salary while we politely listen  to her nonsense. So says the “special” counsel.

*Anyone else feel all warm and fuzzy about the fact that GOP leaders are taking advice from this guy?*

For what it’s worth, Lady Liberty had one more parting shot for Woodcox:

    Lady Liberty is your go-to subject matter expert on NC school scams. She has fertile ground to plow. Hope you and she keep it up. Now, hammer commissioners to fix the boondoggles and trim out all the bloated faux ‘administrative’ slots that provide no value added to academic achievement, which, BTW, is what the latter is supposedly all about. Snip the funding stream for ideological indoctrination, #FakeHistory, empire nurturing and payroll padding.

    Standing by for a rash of shocked (shocked, I tell you!) and indignant classroom teachers to reinforce you and Lady Liberty.

    Soros worshiping Brent Woodcox still having a job is one more reason that neither Tim Moore nor Phil Berger should still have a leadership job when the caucus next votes for leadership. But he is only one of many reasons.

    One wonders how much Woodcox’s bad advice is responsible for Moore and Berger’s many bad decisions.

    I don’t see what is wrong with teaching children the truth about our history as opposed to whitewashing history at every turn, as has been the norm. You call these approaches “crap”, but outside of the accounting of funds (which you purposely leave out details), you don’t say why this approach of teaching qualifies as that.

      The left tries to distort history. I recently visited Jamestown and was appalled at what the PC crowd from the last administration had done to the introductory film in the visitor center. They left out much of the history of what actually happened in the Jamestown settlement in order to preach multiculturalism. Then to make matters even worse, while I waited for relatives to buy souvenirs in the gift shop, I sat down in a seating area outside the gift shop where a large TV screen was playing. What was playing was a propaganda film on the “climate change” ideology from an agency within the Department of Interior dealing with that subject.

      Lets get history instead of political propaganda back in our historic sites. I went to Jamestown to hear about what happened there, NOT about multiculturalism and climate change.

      President Trump’s administration clearly has some work to do to repeal Obamunism.

        Science and History lessons are not always easy to hear but the Truth is so much better in the long run that deceiving yourself.

          The problem was the substitution of politicized science fiction for real science and of ideological propaganda for genuine history. It was sickening.

    What is this Woodcox fellow’s background? What makes him think he is in a position from life experiences to tell others to Grow up” or to “listen?” Does he listen to others? I am experienced enough to know liberal tripe when I see it, so why should I have to take something foolish and act like it is serious? Woodcox should be telling liberals that they need to grow up and listen to others. My father used to tell me when I was young that I could not give my opinion on matters until I had “earned my spurs,” meaning gone out into the world, been knocked around a bit, and learned a thing or two to give some validity to my opinions
