Look What’s in Store for Public School Students in Illinois–YIKES!
By Laurie Higgins   |   08.15.19
Illinoisans shouldn’t need a reminder of how committed Illinois politicians are to using tax dollars and government schools to indoctrinate other people’s children, but Governor J.B. Pritzker just gave them one last Friday when he signed the “LGBTQ” school indoctrination bill into law. This law, which takes effect in July 2020, requires that all children ages 5-18 in public schools be taught about the deviant sexual proclivities of men and women who have made some significant cultural contributions.

By Laurie Higgins   |   08.10.19
The ideological and moral idiocy of “woke” Americans has not yet reached its nadir, but it’s getting close.
