    Parents of high school students started a petition to remove a principal who loves classic heavy metal band Iron Maiden

    [​IMG]

    Parents of high school students in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada have started a petition to remove a school official because of the classic heavy metal band Iron Maiden. Close to 400 people have signed the Change.org petition to transfer Eden High School Principal Sharon Burns.

    IHeartRadio reported that the petition was started by Debbi Lynn. "As concerned parents with impressionable children at Eden High School in St. Catharines, Ontario, we are deeply disturbed that the principal assigned to the school blatantly showed Satanic symbols and her allegiance to Satanic practices on her public social media platforms where all the students can see them under @edenprincipal (not her personal account)," the petition said.

    On Friday, an update on the petition said they didn't want to remove Burns because of her love for Iron Maiden but because of "openly displaying her OWN handmade sign with the 666 clearly displayed on it." The number 666 is used to represent the devil, antichrist, or evil.

    Iron Maiden was formed in 1975 in East London, England, and grew popular in the early 1980s with several albums going platinum or gold including "The Number of the Beast" in 1982 and "Piece of Mind" in 1983. The group is still touring. Burns's Twitter bio identifies her as "Principal at Eden High School. Growth Mindset Practitioner. Fueled by metal & ska. & chickens."

    A petition in support of Burns had more than 10,000 supporters by Friday night. "It is ridiculous that a couple of parents only judge her role as a principal only based on an instagram post. (About liking the band Iron Maiden. That's it.) Eden High School is a public school. Not a Christian school. If you somehow don't like the principal of your child, grandchild, relative etc.'s school, then send them to another one," it said.

    This is what is happening these days. A few loudmouth people get on their bandwagon in order to make the world “pure.” Iron Maiden has been around for decades and these people just discovered them? I hope others in that community fight back.

    Gavin Newsom signs woke law forcing stores to have 'gender neutral' sections where traditional blue and pink toys and toothbrushes are banned

    upload_2021-10-10_11-38-41.png

    Large department stores must now display products like toys and toothbrushes in gender-neutral ways. The law, which took three tries for Democrats to get passed, is a win for LGBT advocates who say the pink and blue hues pressure children to conform. California Gov Gavin Newsom (left) signed the law into effect on Saturday but it does not apply to clothes or stores with less than 500 employees. It does not completely outlaw traditional boys and girls sections at stores. Instead it says large stores must also have a gender neutral section to display.

    These people need to get a life, Dave Chapelle is a comedian and he's funny, get over it...

    ...

    Transgender 'Dear White People' producer boycotts Netflix for showing Dave Chapelle biopic: Claims comic's jokes 'will lead to violence' against trans community and may get 'people killed'

    [​IMG]

    Comedian Dave Chappelle, 48, together with Netflix are facing backlash from the LGBTQ community for making remarks in his latest special. Jaclyn Moore, a trans showrunner on another Netflix show said she will no longer work for the streaming service following Chappelle's 'transphobic' remarks. Moore said Chappelle's Netflix comedy special included 'dangerously transphobic' comments. In the stand-up special Chappelle joked about JK Rowling's 2019 statement that transgender women were not actually women and were a threat to her identity. 'I agree. I agree, man,' Chappelle says in the special before delving further into the topic. 'They saw this and were like, "Yeah this seems okay to put out there,"' Moore said. Angry LGBTQ advocates are also now calling on the streaming service to pull the show.

    Making jokes about a particular person or group, trans, or otherwise, provokes violence against them? Please spell out the reasoning, along with data. And to emphasize, I'm referring to comedy, not angry denunciations.

    To follow up on the above though, if it could somehow be demonstrated, then all comedy should be banned, I guess. (Including "Dear White People" - sounds racist on the face of it.)

    An update...

    'Dave loved my sister and is an LGBTQ ally': Family of transgender woman who took her own life in 2019 defends comedian Chapelle after he was accused of making 'transphobic' jokes in new Netflix special

    [​IMG]

    The family of late trans comedian Daphne Dorman defended Dave Chappelle after he was slammed for his alleged transphobic comments on his new Netflix special The Closer. In response to the cancellation of JK Rowling and her comments on the trans community, Chappelle had said 'I'm Team TERF. Gender is a fact,' he had said in agreement. The term TERF means is in reference to trans-exclusionary radical feminists who exclude the female trans community from their advocacy of feminist rights. Dorman's sisters made public statements calling Chappelle 'an ally' as they worked together on the comedy scene. Dorman had committed suicide in October 2019 nearly two years before Chappelle's Netflix special The Closer was released.

    They will not stop until we are in a Civil War, it's just that simple. I think we need to remember and hold dear our values, and ride this out.

    PIERS MORGAN: All hail Emperor Newsom, the woke dictator fiddling with one pointless PC policy at a time while crime-ravaged California burns

    [​IMG]

    Governor Gavin Newsom had already established himself as the world's most woke political leader, a man so dripping in virtue-signalling PC-crazed drivel that he makes even Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau look like a right-wing nutjob. But this weekend he excelled himself with a barrage of new bills that cement his reputation as a self-righteous, sanctimonious, hypocritical humbug of gargantuan proportions.

    Empowered by his recent recall election win, Newsom fired off a raft of laws that included making it illegal to use gas-powered 'off-road engine engines' including leaf-blowers, lawn mowers and golf carts, ordered schools to teach all students 'ethnic studies', and large toy stores to have gender-neutral sections. This whole gender-neutral nonsense is a ridiculous waste of time and money. Girls are perfectly free to go and buy boys' toys if they want, and vice versa. The ongoing woke campaign to neutralise all gender language is designed to appease the potential offence of a tiny majority of people, most of whom I suspect don't even care. We're seeing it everywhere now.

    Gavin Newsom's only doing this to promote his woke credentials and, like those other famous California-based woke warriors Meghan and Harry, he loves to preach one thing but do another. Having mandated all children over 12 to get a covid vaccine shot, he then had to admit that his own 12-year-old daughter remains unvaccinated. That the Governor of California is a shameless hypocrite is not entirely new territory. But Newsom's woke mantra is slowly wrecking a state that I love.

    Cancel culture backfires: Thousands of people register for lecture by geophysicist at Princeton after MIT axed it because the educator said academic evaluations should be based on merit not racial 'equity'

    University of Chicago professor Dorian Abbot was denied the opportunity to give the prestigious Carlson Lecture, which is devoted to 'new results in climate science' and hosted by MIT's Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences. But Princeton University decided to host Abbot's lecture via Zoom in October - the day it was scheduled to be given at the MIT. Princeton professor Robert P. George, who has publicly backed Abbot since his lecture was 'shockingly and shamefully canceled', said the university has since had to expand the Zoom quota for the lecture as thousands of people have registered. Professor George said: 'I'm delighted to report that we've expanded the Zoom quota for Dr Dorian Abbot's Princeton lecture - the one shockingly and shamefully canceled by MIT - and literally thousands of people have registered.' It comes after Professor Abbot wrote on October 5 on Bari Weiss' Substack newsletter: 'I am a professor who just had a prestigious public science lecture at MIT cancelled because of an outrage mob on Twitter. 'My crime? Arguing for academic evaluations based on academic merit.'

    'We are parents, not domestic terrorists: 'Lifelong liberal' mother-of-four who was hounded out of her public defender role 'because she is white' blasts the FBI's attack on families who disagree with CRT

    A former New York City public defender has slammed the city's school system for imposing CRT on kids and the FBI's attack on parents who disagree with it, writing on Bari Weiss' substack channel Common Sense that they are parents 'not domestic terrorists.'

    Maud Maron is a former public defender who claims to have been wrongfully dismissed earlier this year because she is white. She sued the Legal Aid Society at the time for wrongful dismissal.

    The mother-of-four is now taking on the NYC school system. She says she is becoming increasingly concerned about how critical race theory is imposed on young kids.

    Maron, who is also running for city council, also slammed the Department of Justice and FBI for treating concerned parents like her as if they were 'domestic terrorists' by threatening to prosecute them if they are perceived to be violently threatening towards teachers.

    'I am a mother of four, a criminal defense attorney and a lifelong liberal who is deeply concerned about the direction of New York City’s public schools. I’ve been outspoken about my views, along with an untold number of frustrated parents.

    'For that, the FBI is considering using the PATRIOT Act against me,' Maron wrote.

    She was among millions of parents who the FBI is warning it will target if they become aggressive against school staff who they disagree with

    Although this doesn't enthuse me, it doesn't enrage me either. Since the character is not Clark Kent it doesn't appear to be an abuse of legacy. I've gotten used to comics endlessly inventing new versions and permutations of characters.

    Lucifer was a show that eliminated any lines whatsoever about color, race, orientation and wasn't over-the-top about it.
    No idea if the comic was like that or not.

    I have not been a comic fan but is this just a sign of the times and if so, is it necessarily a good one ?

    I used to read Our Army at War. I'm not a homophobe but if all of a sudden Sergeant Rock, Easy Company, turned to Bulldozer or Wildman or the Ice Cream Soldier and asked for a back rub or something I'm not sure how I'd feel about that. Would rather leave the nooky out of my icons, thanks

    Loudoun County father who was dragged out of woke school board meeting and arrested was trying to tell parents his daughter was raped by a boy 'in a skirt' in the girls' bathroom and staff ignored it

    [​IMG]

    Scott Smith was photographed on June 22 being dragged out of the heated meeting with his torso exposed in Leesburg, Virginia. The 48-year-old plumber was ridiculed on social media after the June 22 meeting and painted by the left to be a deranged, right-win bigot. But in an interview with The Daily Wire that was published on Monday, he explains that he was trying to stick up for his daughter, who he says was attacked at Stone Bridge High School on May 28 by a boy 'in a skirt' who took advantage of the trans policies to get into the girls' bathrooms and assault her. He said he exploded with rage at the meeting after hearing the school's ultra-liberal staff claim they had never received a report of a sexual assault by a transgender child in the bathrooms or changing rooms when he says that's exactly what he reported to them on May 28. A boy was charged with sodomy for the alleged assault on Smith's daughter in May, but the sheriff's department did not release details of it at the time. The same boy was charged on October 7 with assaulting a different girl in a different school. A sheriff's spokesman confirmed to DailyMail.com that it was the same boy, but they could not reveal his identity.

    I grow weary of this woke movement changing anything and everything to suit their warped view of life...Yes I said it, warped view, because life doesn't revolved around them, they need to find their own niche and stop forcing everything else to conform to them...

    This bisexual Superman is an abomination...I don't care if people want bisexual or gay comic characters, develop their own and stop changing long term characters we all know are straight and who have been so for decades...Even if it's not Clark Kent, they're still using the name Superman...

    It is indeed an astonishing elephant in the room that there is overt, harsh persecution of gays and repression of women in many places throughout the Islamic world, but very little is heard about them among the Left and their MSM partners.

    Virtually no criticism of China, either. Yet their agenda is not tolerated in those countries.
