Free Tampons in Lake Forest Middle School Boys’ Bathrooms
By Laurie Higgins   |   01.12.22
If you need evidence that Illinois lawmakers have plumbed the depth of idiocy and that public schools are no longer fit places for boys or girls, look no further than Deerpath Middle School in the North Shore’s tony suburb of...
Kamala Harris: The Vice President Who Will Live in Infamy
By Laurie Higgins   |   01.07.22
President Boris Badenov and his prickly assistant Vice President Natasha Fatale have devised yet another inept scheme to try to salvage their feckless administration. They decided to pretend that the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol was analogous to the...
Are Progressives Allies of Women or Misogynists?
By Laurie Higgins   |   01.04.22
Leftists seek to destroy every created thing that emerges from or depends on the real and foundational distinctions between males and females. Eradicating all distinctions between males and females entails socially constructing a false understanding of marriage. It entails distorting the public understanding of the purposes for and boundaries of sex and reproduction. It entails transforming the public understanding of the needs and rights of children. And it entails a wholesale assault on all sex-associated phenomena, including clothing, hairstyles, grammar, private space usage, sports, and even human bodies.
The Open-Mindedness of Leftist Propagandists
By Laurie Higgins   |   12.21.21
The Facebook Overlords have finally released me from yet another 30-day prison sentence for expressing views “progressives” don’t like. You know who I’m talking about. “Progressives” are those freedom-loving tyrants who proclaim from their high horses how deeply they honor...
Smidge of Hope on the Education Horizon
By Laurie Higgins   |   12.17.21
For those who for years have been battling critical race theory-infused and sexually deviant material in public schools with little help from their friends, recent developments offer a smidge of hope. I began opposing both types of resources in about...
Fools and Hypocrites Defend Abortion
By Laurie Higgins   |   12.15.21
Nothing exposes the ignorance and evil of “progressivism” quite like discussions of the rights of the most vulnerable among us. Nothing exposes the hollowness of leftist claims to care about social justice, the poor, and the weak like their eagerness...
Downers Grove Church Hosts Visit from “Trans” Santa for Children
By Laurie Higgins   |   12.11.21
In a post on a Facebook page called “Friends of District 58 in Downers Grove,” someone posted an ad for an upcoming visit from “Trans Santa and Dr. Claus” for little ones at the heretical First United Methodist Church of Downers Grove.
No More Single Sex Bathrooms in Chicago Public Schools
By Laurie Higgins   |   12.08.21
The Chicago Public Schools (CPS) system—rife with systemic bias against conservative views of sex and sexuality—has announced its newest effort to cultivate “inclusivity” and “equity” in all of its K-12 schools. The “social justice” activists, puddenheads, and lemmings who lead the CPS have banned all sex-based bathrooms for children and staff. Instead, children and staff are free to use any bathroom they are “comfortable” using.
Critical Race Theory at Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy
By Laurie Higgins   |   12.06.21
Have you recently heard the scornful claims of “progressives” who assert that critical race theory (CRT) is absolutely, unequivocally not taught in public schools? Never, no way, no how. Have you heard the suspiciously uniform proclamations that CRT is an academic theory originating and taught exclusively in law schools? Well, take a gander at this upcoming course offered at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy—a public high school:
What Truth-Telling Liberals Say About Roe v. Wade
By Laurie Higgins   |   12.04.21
The fact that “progressives” in their opposition to constitutional textualists/originalists—whom leftists know approach the U.S. Constitution with more rigorous fidelity than do “progressive” Justices—focus almost exclusively on the possibility that Roe v. Wade may be overturned would seem a tacit admission that there exists no constitutional right of women to have their intrauterine offspring slaughtered. The infamous Roe v. Wade is on the chopping block, and leftists are more distraught over the possible decapitation of Roe than they are over the actual decapitations of tiny humans.
Rittenhouse and Justice in a Leftwing Dystopia
By Laurie Higgins   |   11.30.21
A gang of college students at Arizona State University (ASU) committed to “social justice” as redefined by leftists are trying to get Kyle Rittenhouse kicked out of ASU’s online nursing school, calling him a “bloodthirsty murderer” who makes the campus...
Downers Grove High Schools, Obscene Books, Biased Journalism
By Laurie Higgins   |   11.26.21
Chicago Sun-Times education reporter Nader Issa offers a classic example of biased opinion writing masquerading as objective reporting in his “news” narratives about a recent controversy in the Chicago suburb of Downers Grove over an obscene “graphic memoir.” The memoir,...
Anti-Science Public High School Discriminates Based on Religion
By Laurie Higgins   |   11.18.21
Exeter High School in New Hampshire is being sued by a Catholic student (identified in the lawsuit as M.P.) who was suspended from playing in a football game because in a private conversation, off school grounds, initiated by a “progressive”...
Wheaton, Illinois School District’s Wokest Board Member
By Laurie Higgins   |   11.16.21
At the most recent School District 200 Board Meeting in Wheaton, Illinois, new school board member and cunning rhetorician, Mary Yeboah, Director of Graduate Student Life at Wheaton College, posed six questions to the board,  beginning with a prefatory statement...
Fatuous Floor Debate on Parental Notice of Abortion Act
By Laurie Higgins   |   11.12.21
The euphemistically titled “Youth Health and Safety Act” (HB 370) has passed both the Illinois House and Senate. Leftists who believe it takes a village to strip parents of their natural rights and strip preborn humans of their right to live are close to fulfilling their promise to make Illinois America’s bloodiest killing field.  HB 370 will repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act passed in 1995 that requires parents of minor pregnant girls to be notified at least 48 hours before girls can have their babies killed.
