Keri and Carter are joined by special guest Ellen, a former teacher and concerned parent who has been fighting against pornographic material ushered into her local public school system under the guise of pro-LGBTQ literature. She calls out graphic drawings in Maia Kobabe’s “Gender Queer: A Memoir,” and sexually explicit depictions in over twenty other school library books, including Jonathan Evison’s “Lawn Boy” and “All Boys Aren’t Blue: A Memoir-Manifesto” by George M. Johnson. The trio discuss the gradual change in the public school system from decentralized schools to a standardized, centrally-controlled system with decreasing autonomy for local educators. Ellen observes that the Discovery Education Company, allegedly responsible for curriculum and library management in over 1/2 of US schools reaching over 51 million students, is owned by leftist San Francisco private equity firm Francisco Partners, which also owns companies directly promoting Critical Race Theory.
While Carter argues that parents should not outsource moral development of their children and that ethical frameworks are impossible to completely remove from education, Ellen recalls a time when teachers strove to hide their political opinions from students. Both agreed that homeschooling or private schooling are excellent options for concerned parents. Before departing, Ellen explains how parents can get involved in their local public school districts as well. Carter and Keri remain to answer some superchats before taking a few moments to laugh at an awkward Tweet from David Gins, Kamala Harris’ Deputy Director of Operations.
They discuss Mayor de Blasio’s new COVID vaccine mandates for all private sector workers and even children as young as 5. Carter calls COVID-19 a “litmus test for neuroticism,” which prompts Keri to share some photos of mothers celebrating vaccination of their young children. One photo in particular sets Carter off on a rant, comparing the mother’s mentality to that of Medea, the murderous mother from the Greek tragedy by Euripides of the same name. Keri uses the greek concept of “astorgos,” or lack of natural affection, to describe the phenomenon.
