(Sigal Chattah) – While my opponent in the GOP primary for Attorney General is busy attacking me for unpaid parking tickets back in 2005-06 – no, seriously – let’s talk about something far more important…
During the Sisolak Shutdown I filed a lawsuit against the Clark County School District and Gov. Sisolak challenging their order forcing kids to wear masks in school. Democrat Attorney General Aaron Ford represented them for the defense.
The lawsuit is still pending appeal in the 9th Circuit – where I won an earlier lawsuit challenging Sisolak’s shutdown of churches.
PARENTS, not government bureaucrats and apparatchiks, should have the final say when it comes to the health and education of their children. Democrats don’t agree.
Which is why, if elected, I’ll continue my work on behalf of parents by championing a Parents’ Bill of Rights in the Nevada Legislature next year.
26 states have already introduced such bills to expand parental rights in schools; guaranteeing them access to the curriculum being taught in their kid’s classroom and allowing parents to “opt out” from age-inappropriate classroom materials.
That includes barring instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third grade – and also affirms that parents, not government officials, are the primary decision-makers when it comes to your child’s health and medical decisions.
These are common-sense measures that a majority of Americans – with or without school-age kids – support and have been fighting for at school board meetings all across the country.
As Kimberly Fletcher, president and founder of Moms for America, put it…
“As I’ve said for the last 16 years, the moment moms find out what’s going on in the classroom behind closed doors, there’s going to be a national revolt, and that’s what’s happening. … Everything that parents would repel is being pushed from kindergarten to 12th grade, and parents don’t like it. So that’s why they started going to the school board meetings. And then they got called domestic terrorists. … These are our kids. We will come to the school board meetings. We will protect and defend our children.”
Spoken like a true “Mama Bear”!
But the left is throwing a fit over parents standing up for their children and confronting school boards in protest.
Here’s what a substitute public school teacher – who displays the “rainbow” and “transgendered” flags in her Twitter bio – wrote recently…
“We need to quit being afraid of pissed-off parents. This is public service, not customer service. You want a school where you control all the rules? Homeschool or pay someone to homeschool. Your kids are not so special that they get preferential treatment.”
We’re not asking for “preferential treatment.” We’re demanding that K-3 children not be indoctrinated and “groomed” about sex at such an early age when they should be focused on reading, writing and finger painting.
Public school teachers are government employees paid with tax dollars. And if parents decide they don’t want certain things taught in the classroom, then teachers need to honor their wishes or go find employment elsewhere.
It’s not your school. It’s not your classroom. And they certainly aren’t your kids!
Nevada desperately needs a Parents’ Bill of Rights. And if you elect me to be your next Attorney General, I’ll fight for one just as hard in office as I’ve already fought for parental rights out of office.
That’s it for now. I gotta go feed the parking meter!
“A lawsuit filed in Nevada District Court reads like this; as well-intentioned as the mask mandate was, it has become burdensome and unconstitutional. And being forced to wear a mask has caused the young students of Clark County emotional distress. Attorney, and attorney general candidate, Sigal Chattah wrote the suit.” – News 3 Las Vegas, 11/5/21
