Queens’ NYC Councilwoman Vickie Paladino (R) took a stand against drag shows for elementary children and it cost her a committee appointment.
America’s children are more illiterate in reading and math in many public schools, albeit tech savvy. But, woke leaders, as everyone in America knows, are indoctrinating children with gender dysphoria, inappropriate-age sex education, and replacing the basics of learning with activism instead of civic and history classes.
This is the TALK of the towns across America.
Councilwoman Paladino has been pushing back against drag queen story hour in schools and libraries while Joe Biden’s federal government has thrown the entire weight of the federal government behind the LGBTIQ+ movement in an Executive Order signed on June 18, 2022.
Parents are upset because they have no say and they are angry about their parental rights are being ripped to shreds.
Queen NY Councilwoman Vickie Paladino took a stand and objected to this as a public official.
Now, Paladino is paying the price for saying Drag Queen Story Hour is a waste of taxpayers’ money and time.
She has been officially removed from a committee because she has refused to follow the flash woke mob.
Paladino is not against drag queens, but she is adamant that public funds should not be used to indoctrinate America’s children nor should the drag queen community be in elementary schools.
The question asked should be - “Why would a drag queen even want to be in an elementary school? What is the end goal here?”
When Paladino first expressed her views, by June 22, 2022, Paladino apologized because of the twisted pressure.
As she then stated, her intent was not to offend anyone in the drag community, and said she was not sorry for stating that taxpayers should not be paying for drag queen story hour in schools.
Nevertheless, Councilwoman Vickie Paladino now has been removed from the “mental health committee,” because she opposes Drag Queens in elementary schools.
Paladino also has claimed New York City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams may have been bullied by the indoctrination cabal and caved.
But, Paladino is not backing down.
“Parents are now realizing the harmful content in their classrooms and are working every day to take their power back from the radicals who believe they have a right to indoctrinate children,” stated Paladino to the New York Post .
“Our kids are lagging in school,” she continued. “They are two and four years behind in basic education, math, reading, science, they need to get back to basics. … and to concentrate our efforts on drag queens seems like a terrible waste of time and energy.”
The city-funded programs brings costumed drag queens into public schools and libraries to read to the children. Many parents are not informed ahead of time, and hence, have not given their consent.
Paladino has called this - “cultural indoctrination” and “child grooming.”
“Progressives may have no problem with child grooming and sexualization, but I do. This will not happen on my watch. Kids deserve a quality education free from political manipulation and sexual content. And that's what the kids in District 19 will get,” tweeted the councilwoman.
Child-grooming is a criminal term used among law enforcement, prosecutors, and investigative journalists who cover child abuse investigations.
Recently, Paladino arranged to have NYC school children from PS 98 visit City Hall for a civics class with a full tour instead.
