So long as Superintendent Millington condemns Vermont students as racists for resisting his clearly illegal conduct, the conflagration in Randolph will fester and grow. Perhaps parents must bring the matter to court to restore order and law.
Superintendent Millington conceded on May 4 that the school cannot favor one group over another, then boasted that they knew this in Randolph and displayed the BLM flag anyway because most citizens didn’t know — until this 9-0 Supreme Court case.
This is more than a betrayal of public trust — it is a slanderous denigration of Vermont, and a betrayal of the supposed farming education purposes for which this nonprofit was created.
In the midst of a food-inflation crisis, and while Vermont farmers already lack sufficient slaughter facilities to meet the growing demand for their products, Vermont’s Agency of Agriculture Food and Markets seeks to prohibit on-farm slaughter by imposing unnecessary, burdensome restrictions.
Flying the BLM flag and policing students from wearing conservative messaging on their clothes (such as “There are only two genders,” “I love Chick-fil-A,” or “Let’s Go Brandon”) while permitting free speech to liberal views, is what has seeded this conflict.
I am pleased to announce that I am seeking your vote in 2022 as Orange County senator.
Coming off a long winter with record-high gasoline and heating oil prices, this flippant comment is far from amusing. Senators who would pass laws they can’t understand seem to have little understanding or compassion for the very real economic suffering of Vermonters.
Randolph Union High School is enforcing a free speech blackout on conservatives, while encouraging the most extreme of leftist “theories.” This is political indoctrination in action: it is patently unconstitutional.
Vermont’s toxic attackers have demonstrated their true beliefs long enough. They seek to use government to cancel Vermont’s wonderful culture! These people don’t understand Vermonters, or what they are up against.
Vermont is being acculturated by acultural people. Mao’s Cultural Revolution was bent on destroying culture, not preserving it. So too is “social justice theory” focused on control and destruction, not healing or preservation.
The causes of addiction are many, and it is beyond government’s ability to reshape broken humans. But Vermont’s progressive “movement” has already created a perfect environment for increased drug addiction and related crime.
David Zuckerman is so far off from truth, logic and civility that he has proven himself untrustworthy to serve in government.
