New Video Shows ‘Socio-Emotional Learning’ Fanatics Confirming This Popular School Tool Is A Leftist Trojan Horse

Activists disguise ‘social and emotional learning’ as a mental health initiative. In reality, it exists to indoctrinate children.

Activists disguise “social and emotional learning” (SEL) programs as mental health initiatives designed to grow children’s social skills. In reality, these programs are introduced in classrooms by leftist government school administrators for the purpose of indoctrinating children.

A new video from the office of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis documents how the nonprofit Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) and school districts are working together to inject critical race theory disguised as personal growth learning programs in classrooms all around the country.

“It is time to stop political indoctrination in our schools,” the video text states.

Proponents of SEL tout the curriculum as a way for schools to “foster personal and collective growth and well-being” in students.

“SEL is trying to bring a balance to the individual and what are the personal competencies you need to develop to be successful? How do you pull them all together so that kids can relate and
navigate the world more effectively?” CASEL Chief Knowledge Officer Dr. Roger Weissberg is heard discussing at the beginning of the video.

It’s clear from clips of school administrators and even CASEL executives, however, that SEL is explicitly designed to quietly advance the tenets of critical race theory.

“One of the things that, to me, coming out of this political season, is important to notice that this is our chance to hold the line and continue to use the language of social and emotional learning,” CASEL President and CEO Dr. Aaliyah Samuel explained in a clip featured in the video.

CASEL does this by partnering with school districts ranging from Alaska all the way to Texas’ Austin Independent School District, which brags on its website that SEL is “at the heart of equity-centered systems and structures.”

“Elevating student voice and vision is an SEL lever for equity,” Eric Gordon, the superintendent and CEO of Cleveland Metropolitan School District, proudly states in another clip.

The video also showcases SEL slides that demand participants “critically examine root causes of inequity,” “recognize, acknowledge, and address practices and policies that perpetuate inequities,” and “cultivate anti-racist mindsets.” Another clip features a woman reciting CASEL’s revamped version of the Pledge of Allegiance which calls for students to stand for “one world, many beliefs, indivisible, with liberty, health, safety, and justice for all.”

Parents like Texas mother Gabrielle Clark, who threatened last year to sue lawmakers in her home state for failing to keep critical race theory out of her child’s classroom, see the havoc SEL teachings are wreaking on her children.

“My daughter was socially transitioned into thinking she was a boy,” Clark recounted in a Fox News clip included in the montage. “I had to stop my activism from my son for CRT and change direction and change course and start activism for SEL, social-emotional learning, because our children are being indoctrinated on all these different fronts and we need to...

Philadelphia Reaches $9.25M Settlement with Anti-Police Rioters

On Monday, the city of Philadelphia agreed to pay $9.25 million to over 200 rioters who claimed to have been injured by police during the Black Lives Matter riots of 2020.

As reported by Fox News, the settlement was announced by the law firm Mincey Fitzpatrick Ross, LLC, which represented the 237 activists who participated in the riots between May 31st and June 1st, 2020, following the fentanyl overdose death of George Floyd.

In addition to the financial compensation, the city has also agreed to stop participating in a federal program that provides the police department with extra military equipment. The city will also pay about $500,000 for counseling services for residents of the 52nd Street corridor, located in West Philadelphia, where most of the violence occurred.

The rioters complained about superficial injuries sustained during their clash with police, including “scars” from rubber bullets and “nerve damage” from being restrained with zip ties, as well as exposure to tear gas as police attempted to disperse the violent gatherings.

Mayor Jim Kenney (D-Penn.) issued a statement denouncing the alleged “pain and trauma” that the rioters experienced, and claiming that the racism allegedly caused by the police is “immeasurable.”

“While this is just one step in the direction toward reconciliation, we hope this settlement will provide some healing from the harm experienced by people in their neighborhoods in West Philadelphia and during demonstrations on I-676 in 2020,” Kenney added.

Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw also issued a statement declaring that the department would change its approach to rioters in the future.

“Along with city, state and community stakeholders, we will continue to work non-stop towards improving what we as police do to protect the first amendment rights of protesters, keep our communities and officers safe, and to ultimately prove that we are committed to a higher standard,” Outlaw said.

The Philadelphia Police Department is one of several major cities’ police departments that has been forced to settle with rioters after the series of destructive rioters in the summer of...

Democrats’ Banana-Republic Persecution Of Donald Trump Must Meet A Republican Response

This is the equivalent of a nationally televised jaywalking arrest to humiliate a person due solely to personal hate.

American media has bombarded us daily from all directions to make sure we know that Donald Trump indirectly paid a woman to shut her mouth as she and her now-convict lawyer, Michael Avenatti, shook him down for money.

In New York, false financial accounting can be a low-level misdemeanor, but it’s rarely prosecuted. Now Alvin Bragg, a municipal prosecutor, is trying to make a name for himself by charging former President Trump with that crime.

This is the equivalent of a nationally televised jaywalking arrest to humiliate a person due solely to personal hate. George Soros, Bragg’s benefactor, must be grinning from ear to ear.
Hillary Clinton Got Off For a Worse Deed

Trump’s former lawyer accounted for the payment as consulting or attorney’s fees. Allegedly, so did President Trump, and $130,000 changed hands.

For perspective, Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid $1 million for the infamous fictional “Steele dossier.” They paid for this using one of the Democratic Party’s most prominent lawyers, Marc Elias, as a cutout to hide who was paying for this opposition research that falsely claimed Trump was colluding with Russia.

They then laundered the dossier through various contacts to try to destroy Trump and get Clinton elected president. Those people officially accounted for the $1 million dossier expense as “legal fees.” So, one side paid people to lie. The other paid someone not to lie, or at least not to speak.

Clinton lives in New York, the state in which Trump is likely to be charged over a $130,000 payment. She has not been charged for the $1 million payment. Do these events really sound vastly different to you?

Bragg hopes to spin that unserious charge into a federal campaign finance violation. Meanwhile, the dossier fraud, which affected two presidential elections and two presidential impeachments, was settled with a $113,000 fine.
Bragg’s Case Is a Mess

City prosecutors cannot charge people with federal crimes. Only feds can charge federal crimes, not some city prosecutor. Bragg has allegedly met with the Secret Service about how they will react to a New York City police officer approaching President Trump with handcuffs (if they can find one who will do it). Bragg is way over his head and wading into deep political waters.

New York Attorney General Tish James ran for office almost exclusively on a “get Trump” platform. She hated the man and promised to find a crime he committed, rather than responding to a crime and looking for a perpetrator. After years of not finding anything, she did not charge Trump with any crimes. Same state. Same New York laws. More investigative tools. Yet she passed on the opportunity to...
