Why Parents Are Getting Involved In Schools

BizPacReview posted an article today about Scott Smith, who was forcibly subdued by police, handcuffed, and arrested at a Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting in June. It seems there was a valid reason Mr. Smith was upset.

The article reports:

A father named Scott Smith, who was forcibly subdued by police, handcuffed, and arrested at a Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting in June, is claiming his daughter was raped by a gender-fluid boy wearing a skirt who assaulted her in a high school bathroom.

Smith’s daughter is in ninth grade and attends Stone Bridge High School. The incident reportedly occurred on May 28, 2021, according to the Daily Wire. The father also asserts that the school district is trying to sweep the assault under the rug.

Smith’s attorney Elizabeth Lancaster stated that the boy has been charged with two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio.

The article continues:

Right before Smith was taken down and arrested, the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) superintendent had addressed the district’s transgender policy asserting that the school system had no record of any assault occurring in any school bathroom. That enraged the father because he claims it is a blatant lie.

The arrest occurred after a leftist told Smith she did not believe his daughter was raped. They got into a heated argument. Police intervened and before Smith knew what had happened he was hit in the face, handcuffed, and dragged out of the room with his pants pulled down. The images went viral. Smith is now being charged with two misdemeanors.

The boy who allegedly attacked Smith’s daughter is on house arrest. Lancaster contends that this same 15-year-old boy was also charged with sexual battery and abduction after he forced a girl into an empty classroom, then held her against her will, and touched her inappropriately.

After Smith’s daughter was allegedly assaulted, the school called him to tell him. They claimed they were handling it in-house.

Police were called to the school because Smith was furious over the handling of the matter.

“I went nuts. I called the principal a p**,” he admitted. “Six cop cars showed up like a f***ing SWAT team” to respond to the school’s complaint about an assertive parent, he stated.

“Thank God that I drew enough attention to it, without getting arrested, that we got an escort to the hospital and they administered a rape kit that night,” Smith recounted.

That same day, the principal sent out an email claiming that nothing jeopardizing student safety had occurred, and instead, purportedly made Smith out to be the bad guy.

The pushing of the transgender movement on our children has consequences. It removes the girls’ room in school as a safe place for young girls. It exposes our young girls to risks that they have not been previously exposed to. There is no rational reason to allow a biological male into a girls’ restroom or a girls’ locker room.

What You Were Told vs What Happened

The media is going after Donald Trump with guns blazing. Why? Because he is a serious threat to the status quo. The first victim of this attack is truth. It has long since left the building. The latest example is pointed out in a PJ Media story posted yesterday. The story deals with the media reporting of a Trump rally in Loudoun County, Virginia, earlier in the week. The rally was held with only 24 hours notice, and approximately 2000 people were turned away because the crowd was so large. One attendee posted his observations on Facebook. Please read those observations and compare them to what you have heard on the media.

Here is the story as told by someone who was there:

Today I went to the Donald Trump rally in Ashburn, VA. Since I know good people can disagree over whether or not to support Trump, I am just going to post some candid thoughts below. I report, you decide!

Since I am the chairman of the Loudoun County Republican Committee, I was working with the campaign in advance of the rally. On Monday evening, a senior Trump staffer emailed me and asked me if I would be willing to give the invocation at the rally. I said I’d be happy to, but I also told him that as a born again Christian, I end my prayers with “I pray all of this in the name of Jesus.” Since I know that in this day and age mentionoing the name of Jesus can offend some people, I said I’d understand if they preferred that someone else give the invocation. His response to me was: “We know that’s how you pray, that’s why we asked you.”

After the welcome (by John Whitbeck), invocation (by yours truly), pledge (by Sheriff Michael Chapman), and National Anthem (by Briar Woods High School Teacher Nina Peyton), we waited back stage to get a photo with Donald Trump. And then – he was there, with a crowd of staff, Loudoun County Sheriff’s deputies, and Secret Service. I was immediately struck by his presence – he radiates confidence, but also I was struck by his soft spoken demeanor. He spoke softly and thoughtfully the entire time we were backstage.

The first person to get a photo with him was an older man. We had been chatting before-hand while all of us were waiting for Trump to arrive, and he introduced himself as Lieutenant Colonel Louis Dorfman and he had served in the 82nd Airborne. He shook hands with Donald Trump, and handed him his Purple Heart saying he wanted Trump to have it as thanks for standing up for wounded vets. Trump was surprised and said something like “I can’t take this!” We were all surprised and not expecting this. It was pretty cool to see the respect this veteran had for Trump.

Then it was my turn to shake hands with Trump and get my photo taken. I told Mr. Trump that I was the chairman of the Loudoun County Republican Committee and he immediately stopped and looked at me: “Will, how do I win Loudoun?” he asked me. We started talking and he called over one of his staffers. “George, these people here in Virginia know what we need to do to win Virginia.” And then – in a really cool turn of events – John Whitbeck, the GOP chairs of Prince William County and Arlington County, Trump’s campaign staffer, and me are all huddled in a corner, photos forgotten, strategizing on how Trump will win Virginia. Trump didn’t do a lot of talking. He listened to all of us, he made sure his staff had our emails, and he said that we would have everything we needed.

As we finished up the photos, Trump looked at all the Sheriff’s Deputies. “Let’s get them in the photo,” he said. And then he was taking group photos with all of the cops. They loved it. In fact, my favorite photo I took was all of the deputies with Trump (I’ll post it tomorrow). I was struck by how Trump didn’t forget the “little people.” Even though it was just a few of us and no media, he was relaxed and took the time to get photos with everyone.

The rally itself was super cool. Lots of energy, packed room (something like 2000 people had to be turned away because the auditorium was packed – and just on 24 hours notice!), everyone stood the entire time even though they all had seats. One thing I want to mention is the baby crying, because that has been national news. Contrary to news stories, it was a very funny thing, Trump was very supportive of the mom calling her and her baby “beautiful” and “wonderful”, and then when the baby kept crying he turned it into a joke. Everyone was laughing and it was actually very endearing and funny. Not at all anti mom or anti baby like the media has portrayed it to be.

Which brings me to the final point: I was there and saw and heard the entire event with the mom and baby. There was nothing to it. But then after I’m reading all the news coverage saying “Trump hates moms and babies!!!” I started to doubt myself. Did I really miss a huge story right in front of me? I started asking others who were there, including a husband and wife with young kids. And everyone in the room said the same thing: there was no story here. Trump was being funny and personable and going out of his way to make sure the mom wasn’t embarrased by making it a funny situation.

My conclusion is that the media is selling us a narrative. Be very skeptical of what the media is telling you, because I saw it with my own eyes and it was something very different.

The media has lost touch with integrity as they attempt to control the election. It’s time to ignore them.
