Fairfax Teacher Rips Critical Race Theory Before Board Cuts Microphone While Speaking
A teacher at Loudoun County schools was first being questioned by the chair about her medical exemption for not wearing a masks but she pushed back and gave a powerful message for the board, parents and children to hear.
“I can’t ask you if you’re gay. I can’t ask you if you have herpes. You can’t ask me about my medical exemption,” Fairfax County teacher, Lilit Vanetsyan told the board in a meeting Tuesday.
Vanetsyan was given a minute by the board to speak and the board ended up cutting the mic without let her finish her statement.
“I’m going to give a message of encouragement to parents and teachers and students who are too afraid to come and speak forward. 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 and they rely on you,” the teacher said.
“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,” she continued.
“Students, you are on the front lines of these indoctrination camps. Challenge the staff when you are 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,” the teacher also shared.
“And finally to the board, this isn’t over and your policies are just as,” the mic ended up being cut off as she continued talking about their policies being, “pathetic ask making us wear a mask.”
Many teachers are refusing to teach critical race theory because of how it damages students mental health. Lilit Vanetsyan previous spoke to the same school board back in March 2021, to slam the racially-charged teacher training.
“Hi, I’m a teacher, speaking on behalf of every Fed-Up teacher in this nation, this school district continues to show up on national news and it is absolutely embarrassing to see what once used to be the nation’s leading school district has desecrated to. This school district is upon almost every single school district in the nation that continues to force teachers through mandatory training, where we are told to examine our whiteness, white privilege, white supremacy, microaggressions upon every other thing that is absolutely stupid and racist.” Vanetsyan stated in March.
“Now, the same school district wants to threaten to fire teachers who do not agree with the critical race theory. You are the face of privilege. You do not speak for us if you do not work with us. If you keep up this racist insanity, you will have successfully stripped us of every ounce of love of teaching. And so far you have succeeded in doing that. Keep this up and you will lose all of your teachers at the same rate that you have been losing these incredible families who some of you fall asleep when they’re trying to get your attention,” Vanetsyan concluded.
