Shame on Brittany Renshaw

Shares

School Board candidate Brittany Renshaw claims that she is running for the School Board with no agenda other than helping to educate Helena’s children. A touching sentiment, but one that seems hard to accept given her endorsement of an entirely inappropriate and irrational site attacking her opponents.

Yesterday, Mrs. Renshaw promoted a “great blog” called Perpetual Vigilance. If these are the kinds of ideas that Mrs. Renshaw thinks are “great,” and this is the campaign she wants to be a part of, she’s not the right candidate for the School Board.

Communism is in Our Midst!

I’m more convinced than ever: Myrhe, Prezeau & Lovshin must clearly and avidly endorse abortion to receive that endorsement.  It’s not a stretch to conclude that they aren’t, therefore, more dedicated to their hidden progressive (i.e. communist) political agenda than they are to children.  I’m convinced they are.

Fascism (and Communism) Lurk in the Hearts of the Board!:

“A lie repeated a hundred times becomes the truth.”
-Chairman Mao

Adolf Hitler agreed with Mao in this.  He also clearly identified the target, kids, which truly is the subject of today’s story.
“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it”
“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.”

Opposing Bullying Encourages Deviant Lifestyles!

Their objective is ostensibly to prevent bullying by teaching young kids about the various topics that often lead to bullying.  Sadly, topical approaches to behavioral problems have a zero success record.  They only ever serve to demoralize their target populations by including troubling, often deviant aspects of society within the category of normal and acceptable*

That those opposed to the incumbents have had to resort to such sleazy personal attacks and outright absurdity certainly doesn’t speak well for the kind of Board members they will be. Mrs. Renshaw ought to be ashamed of herself for promoting and endorsing this putrescence.
