The cultural environment that we live in has become insanely oppressive, and I am about to share an example with you that perfectly demonstrates this. A few days ago, a high school student in a rural area of Idaho told his fellow students that “guys are guys and girls are girls”, and the fallout from that statement proceeded to create a firestorm of controversy that is making headlines all over the nation. Sadly, the truth is that we now live in a society where anyone that tries to resist the new culture that is being imposed on all of us must be severely punished. Dissent is simply not allowed, and Kellogg High School senior Travis Lohr found that out the hard way…
TRUTH LIVES on at https://sgtreport.tv/
On Thursday, Kellogg High School senior Travis Lohr took part in an activity where seniors share advice for lowerclassmen. In a departure from his preapproved remarks, Lohr spoke from his heart, saying, “Guys are guys and girls are girls. There is no in-between.”
Despite the fact that this simple statement has been a truism for all of human history, the leadership of Kellogg High School seemed to think it was unacceptable. Principal Dan Davidian informed Lohr that he would not be allowed to walk in his graduation ceremony on Saturday.
This didn’t take place in California.
Kellogg High School is located in one of the most conservative areas of one of the most conservative states in the entire nation.
If this can happen in Idaho, it can happen anywhere.
When the community learned what had happened, a peaceful protest was quickly organized, and that is when things started getting really crazy.
The following is how a member of the Idaho legislature named Heather Scott summarized what we have witnessed so far…
UNACCEPTABLE! The Shoshone County Kellogg High school graduation is canceled for all students! So how I am understanding this is:
1. A student speaks scientific truth at a school assembly (“Guys are guys and girls are girls. There is no in-between.”)
2. Science denier “adult” teachers were offended.
3. The student was punished and is now forbidden to participate in graduation.
4. Parents, students, and community members voiced their concerns in a peaceful protest.
5. The school then fired an off-duty bus driver for joining the peaceful protest!
6. The Shoshone County Sheriff’s Office informed the school of concerns about “safety”
7. The school will now punish the entire student body and community by postponing graduation for all students.
Why in the world would a bus driver be fired on the spot for simply joining a peaceful protest?
Unfortunately, all of those that showed public support for Travis Lohr are being framed as the bad guys.
Shoshone County Sheriff Holly Lindsey cited “Safety Concerns.”
Sheriff Lindsey is “married” to Kellogg HS Art Teacher Rachel Krusemark, one of the 3 teachers offended by Travis Lohr’s statements.
If those teachers had not made such a fuss, this controversy never would have erupted.
Why can’t they just let people say things that they disagree with?
People say things that deeply offend me all the time, but I am not trying to shut down their right to say those things.
Sadly, it isn’t just the school that has taken action. According to Travis Lohr, he has also just had a job offer rescinded…
A student barred from his high school graduation ceremony after stating there are only two genders said in a Sunday interview on “Fox & Friends” that a firefighting job offer has now been rescinded.
He was supposed to work on Sunday, but when he showed up to complete his paperwork he was given the bad news…
Lohr told Campos-Duffy he was slated to start work Sunday, but when he went in to complete the final paperwork, his boss informed him he was rescinding the offer. He described the job as “fighting wildland forest fires.”
“That’s part of life, as I am learning, and I am going to continue to grow from here. I’m not going to dwell on it.”
Yes, this has actually happened in the deep-red state of Idaho.
This just shows how far our society has fallen.
In other areas of the country, radical activists have been making bomb threats against Target just because the retailer removed “some of its Pride Month merchandise after significant backlash”…
LGBTQ radicals reportedly deluged Target with bomb threats in retaliation to the retail giant pulling back on some of its Pride Month merchandise after significant backlash.
The bomb threats were allegedly made against several Target stores in at least three states: Utah, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.
Our nation is being ripped in two, and there are no quick fixes on the horizon.
Of course a similar revolution is currently underway in Europe. This week, we learned that a “topless pregnant transgender man” is on the cover of Glamour U.K.’s June issue…
