A school district in blue California is featuring “Progress Pride” murals on each school campus as children head back to school, the district proudly announced over the weekend.
“Progress Pride Flags are being painted as murals on each school campus,” the Castro Valley Unified School District announced in a social media post Saturday, featuring several images of the murals, including one with children standing on each side smiling.
“Aligned with our commitment to ensure every student feels safe and valued in our schools, on February 9th, 2022, the CVUSD Board approved the project,” the district added.
The “Progress Pride” murals are based off the left’s revamped pride flag. The newer version, embraced by the likes of the U.S. Department of State and Justice Department, includes additional stripes of color — black, brown, light pink, baby blue, and white — specifically for the inclusion of minorities and transgender individuals….
The above comes from a Sept. 5 posting on Breitbart.com.
This is ridiculous propaganda. Parents take back your schools from these evil minion.
Hey! they forgot red or copper color. Don’t people with copper colored skin count? How dare they be so “non inclusive”.
There has already been a lot of discussion and controversy about adding colors/changing designs etc, so please don’t get that debate reopened ;). I think this is the first time I’ve seen a circle on the flag. I don’t know what that represents.
But seriously, would we rather send a message to incoming students that their sense of welcome and safety is dependent on their color, sex, physical or academic talent, etc etc? What is the alternative? A hate filled place where bullying is not only a daily experience but a daily expectation, encouraged in fact by faculty and admin?
In case you don’t know, YFC, Crosses and Christian flags are STRICTLY BANNED (i.e. censored) in public schools. So a question for school administrations, and for our US Federal Government, and for YFC: Why should Gay Pride flags, and other gay symbols, be allowed to take precedence in schools? And why are gay flags allowed to be shown along with our National Flag? So Christian children and parents are treated as inferior ignorant uneducated humans, while gays are praised and adulated? Why should this be so? This is not correct. In fact, if Christian flags and symbols are banned from public display, so should gay flags. There should be a lawsuit to end this gay symbolism in schools and public places. When adult male gay behavior is considered, their actions are far from praiseworthy, and not a good example for children. The continued praise of the gay population in public schools should be ended. NO allowance for Christian flags also means, NO allowance for gay flags. End this Gay favoritism! NO more gay flags in schools and government!
NG you didn’t really address my question. Do we want our children getting the messages of hate and tolerance for bullying?
You seem to confuse the constitutional prohibitions against adopting a religion. Schools putting crosses up would be a de facto violation of the Constitution. An LGBT flag is not a religious symbol.
YFC’s comments are again more of the continuing gay propaganda. Life is tough, very sorry for you
We’ve been through this. Public schools can put up a cross as long as they allow for other expressions as well. It is not against the constitution. It does not establish a state religion.
An inclusion flag is not the same thing. However, it is offensive to some and should be reconsidered.
I think the flag is unnecessary and it makes Christian kids feel bullied and that they better keep their mouths shut or else…
Why aren’t they worrying about making schools safe for all the nuero-diverse?
Catholics don’t use the Christian flag.
” What is the alternative? A hate filled place where bullying is not only a daily experience but a daily expectation, encouraged in fact by faculty and admin?”
Because that is the norm in schools today….mean, phallocentric whites hating and bullying anyone that doesn’t conform to their Christian nationalistic ideology…it’s happening *everywhere*….San Francisco Catholic schools are the worst…just a free for all against oppressed and marginalized ‘other’ groups….please…spare us.
The concept of the dignity of the human person was articulated by the Church and is now being subverted, distorted and corrupted by secular humanist atheists for their own anti-human narratives. The self hatred is breathtaking…
Purple circle on yellow ground is the intersex flag.
That was written “tongue in cheek” as you well know. The only flags that should be flown at a public school in California are the United States flag, the flag of California and perhaps a city flag. No sexuality flags
Btw, one of my jobs in the past was to mix together paints for the skin color of each child for his/her handprint for his/her Mother’s Day or Father’s Day cards. I was good at it, with white, red, yellow, brown and black paints, I could copy any skin color the children had. Now all that innocent activity has been tossed out in many schools.
YFC, do you know what breadcrumbing is?
So they see the flag. They think they are safe.
How safe do you think they really are?
The modern swastika, the modern sign of evil totalitarianism and indoctrination.
Condoms and the morning after pill will available at the main entrance
I am as liberal as can be but I think only one flag is needed on a public school campus: the American flag!
Love your comment!… I am more conservative myself, but I really appreciate your simply sensible comment!.. Absolutely agree!.. “The only flag on an American elementary school should be the American flag” because it includes everyone…every race…religion…ethnicity..etc etc…
I wonder what color or shape they will use to represent “Minor Attracted Persons”, a.k.a. pedophiles. It’s coming. It’s going to be added to the flag. It’s going to be celebrated by universities and the Democrat Party and entertainment and elementary schools and protected by law or court decision and we’ll all be told that if we don’t go along with the normalization of men sexually abusing young boys we’re benighted bigots who will lose our jobs and our rights and our children to the pervs. If they can take children away from parents for the purpose of genital mutilation, if they can jab children against parents’ wishes, you know they will take children away from parents for the purpose of giving them to men who want to sodomize them.
A clear sign:
“This Institution Incapable of Teaching the 3 R’s”
There is a very clear problem with allowing gay flags and symbols into public schools: it allows an official public blessing on a particular group, the gays, and sets a precedent. Only the US flag, state, and civic flags should be permitted, to prevent opening the door for anyone or any group to show their flag. So YFC, since gays are allowed official public support, doesn’t this allow other groups to sue, to officially show THEIR flags? Are you OK with the Republican flag (elephant icon), or a Commercial flag, or the Mexican flag, or any other flag to be officially recognized, and allowed and supported, in our schools?
Conclusion: NO more gay icons or flags in our schools!
Legitimate questions. In my day I think the VFW had a flag display. But the more common way to do these. Things were billboards and the cork board above the blackboard. But my basic question about demonstrating welcome and anti bullying remain. These are values that have to be thought somehow and the question is how.
You were answered.
Having the flag does not mean kids won’t be bullied and that they are welcome. Someone somewhere wants them to think that.
The flag is intimidating and threatening to other kids, like Christians.
Funny thing is it’s mostly supposedly Christian kids doing the bullying of LGBT kids.
The proposed flag doesn’t stand for intimidation or violence against anyone so maybe children who feel threatened by it can be taught the truth instead of pretend fear.
Oh, those mean old Christian kids.
All we need now as we needed when I was in grade school 1960’s is the the flag of the USA. We were all inclusive as Americans whether Catholic, Filipino, Irish etc ancestry. Let’s get back to that symbol and discard the rest. Teachers can push that sort of inclusion rather than YFC’s homo version.
Public schools flying the California State Flag.
Well…… California is known as the Bare Fag State.
End the Intrusion of gays and gay politics in our schools!
Totally inappropriate for schoolchildren. Much more appropriate– welcoming children with Down syndrome, or other serious disabilities. Overall– just go to school, study the basic Three R’s, and that’s all. No more nonsense. All LGBT sex/gender material, and all sex-ed, should be strictly illegal, prohibited in all classrooms, nationwide. Not appropriate for school. Parents should deal with this material, privately, with their own kids– and teach them morals, too. No teacher should ever discuss sex with any child. And if they do– they should be immediately fired.
My mother always taught us to accept and respect others, and mind your own business. If a child has any problems, that’s a personal thing, with them and their family. In high school, I once accompanied a very talented little boy, who sang a beautiful solo, at Christmas Eve Midnight Mass. He came from a big Catholic immigrant family. Some people thought he might have some “feminine” qualities, and could grow up to be gay. He was very mature, and intelligent– and grew up to be an outstanding musician, with an excellent career (now retired). He once confided to a close friend, that he was gay, but believed in Chastity, and all Catholic teachings– and his mom was a firm supporter. He had tons of friends– but never mixed with gays. By contrast– he had a cousin, who was very pretty, but also– “naughty.” One day, we saw her father quietly leading her and her boyfriend down the block, right into the church rectory– for a shotgun wedding! Their families tried to help them make a good marriage, and raise their child, and support the young husband in a good and stable job. And it all turned out well, too. You never know, who has self-control, maturity, responsibility, and good morals! Plus, many kids who “go wrong,” can be helped, by good families.
“So every student feels ‘safe and valued'”…I don’t feel safe around sodomites!
Why? You think you might give into temptation?
They actually have just taken a strong symbol that everybody knew what it meant and turned it into a confusing mess.
