The “woke” wars are on in Loudoun County, Virginia, as we’ve documented extensively.
Battle lines have been drawn between fanatical Critical Race Theory (CRT) proponents and parents and other educators in the school district who stand opposed to brainwashing children into believing that their country is inherently racist, systemic racism is everywhere, all black people are victims, and that some of their classmates have much to atone for simply because they were born white.
It’s gotten so intense there that a group of so-called “anti-racist” parents in the county who allegedly went the “Enemies List” route – complete with harassment and threats – against their opposition were investigated by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office after complaints were reported.
Fortunately, efforts to intimidate and shut down opponents of CRT are not going so well. Not only have parents dropped straight fire on the school board every chance they get for all the world to see, but some teachers have gotten in on the action as well, as evidenced by the video below of a Fairfax County teacher going off on leftist indoctrination including the woke CRT agenda as well as providing strong words of encouragement for anyone too afraid to speak out for fear of retaliation.
“I’m a Fairfax County public school teacher, and I’m going to give a message of encouragement to parents and teachers and students who are too afraid to come forward and speak.
Parents, the longer that you wait and you don’t hold your child’s schools accountable gives these guys more time to dictate what’s best for your child’s physical, mental and emotional health. Don’t be afraid to speak out for your kids, because they are voiceless and they rely on you.
You should be afraid of them rooting for socialism by the time they get to middle school.
Teachers, it may seem that our careers have come to a dead end, but I’m here to remind you, we don’t work for the school board. We work to mold the next generation of well-rounded American patriots, so don’t give up because it is up to us.
Students, you are on the front lines of these indoctrination camps. Challenge the staff when you’re presented with a ludicrous statement and do not allow anybody to tell you that you cannot accomplish anything because of your skin color or to hate yourself because of your skin color. Students, it is up to you to be the next generation of victims or victors.
And finally, to the board, this isn’t over and your policies are just as [mic was cut off].”
Speaks volumes that her mic was cut when she had barely been given one minute to speak her powerful message.

Unfortunately, CRT is not the only indoctrination scheme being foisted on to parents, their children, and educators in Loudoun County. Leesburg Elementary school teacher Byron “Tanner” Cross recently won a temporary injunction against Loudoun County schools and reinstatement after being placed on leave for voicing opposition during another school board meeting to their draft policy on the “Rights of Transgender and Gender-Expansive Students,” which states, among other things, that “LCPS staff shall allow gender-expansive or transgender students to use their chosen name and gender pronouns that reflect their gender identity without any substantiating evidence, regardless of the name and gender recorded in the student’s permanent educational record.”
