Fox News host Laura Ingraham exposed Burlington schools’ gender identity education program to the world last night.
Ingraham hosts “The Ingraham Angle” 10-11 pm Monday-Friday. Last night’s nine minute, 15-second segment called “They’re Going after the Kids.”
“They [students] are then bombarded by efforts to undo any semblance of traditional values that their parents might have taught them,” Ingraham says. “Teachers and administrators, often with very fun personalities by the way, are eager to share their own experiences with sexual and gender identity like this assistant principal in Burlington Vermont.”
Ingraham then cuts to a clip of Edmunds Middle School assistant principal Nicole Ellis speaking at a Feb. 8 Burlington school webinar, “Let’s Talk About Gender Identity and Expression.”
Ellis: “Students call me AP Ellis, since I don’t use gendered pronouns in my name. I personally identify both as gender non-conforming and gender non-binary, in that I do not feel just female or male. But I feel a mix of that within myself.”
Ingraham: “Then this complaint about misgendering….”
Ellis: “As a trans person it does get really tiresome in conversations where I’m being misgendered and I’m carrying the discomfort of another adult for their mistake and sort of have to take the burden of the discomfort of that. Again I think kids do a really miraculous job of not doing that.”
Ingraham (tongue in cheek): “Okay I got it. Kids who don’t misgender are miraculous. Because they haven’t been ruined by their more traditional parents. Got it.”
Ingraham also covered other statements on the Burlington webinar – including teaching Pre-K and young elementary students to question whether they actually feel like little boys and girls.
Much of the Burlington coverage appears to have been sourced from Karlyn Borysenko’s Monday, April 4 “Actively Unwoke” Substack column headlined “The most woke school district in America is grooming children live on the internet.” The column also appeared Monday in the Vermont Daily Chronicle.
Borysenko credits “nearly two dozen” volunteers who mined the information from the original sources on the internet.
“The research to support this article would not have been possible without the help of nearly two dozen individuals spending their weekend researching as a part of the ‘Unwoke Army’, a decentralized initiative of average people dedicated to fighting back against woke insanity,” Borysenko writes.
