North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson stands by LGBTQ+ ‘filth’ comments amid controversy
It does not matter how you define filth; our Lt. Governor has a responsibility and the duty to protect all people in the state of North Carolina with a special emphasis on our children in the public school system.
“There’s no reason anybody anywhere in America should be telling any child about transgenderism, homosexuality, any of that filth,” he told the audience. “And yes, I called it filth. And if you don’t like it that I called it filth, come see me and I’ll explain it to you.” Robinson, a Republican, made the comments in June at the Asbury Baptist Church in Seagrove.
Before anyone condemns the words spoken by the North Carolina Lt. Governor as insensitive, demeaning or, offensive, let us first consider what is at stake for all parents trying to ensure a safe and secure education for their children and not pretend for a second that this isn’t an actual reality across the country. If you doubt that, look no further than these many reports:
- ‘Essentially child pornography’ – NBC News
- Pornographic ‘Comprehensive Sexuality Education’ in Massachusetts Public Schools – Massachusetts Family Institute
- Virginia Public School Books Contain Images Too Pornographic for TV – Washington Free Beacon
What is Truly at Stake for NC Parents with Children Exposed to this ‘Filth’
The concern from the Lt. Governor and the constituents/parents he represents, is not whether ‘filth’ is being currently taught in North Carolina exclusively; the concern is that it is being taught in many states across the US and although not yet part of the NC curriculum, ‘filth’ is available from the public-school libraries for any students attending these schools. Parents currently do not have a say on what is offered to their children in these libraries and that is a huge issue alone. It is not a disputed fact that there are reports from all over the country of the sexually explicit and pornographic content that is being disseminated to children through the public education system. This is a fact that cannot be disputed.
The ‘Filth’ Referred to by Lt. Governor Mark Robinson is Pornography
So, what is the ‘filth’ that our Lt. Governor was speaking of? If I displayed the images being taught in Michigan, I would be arrested. If the students mimicked what is being taught, they would be guilty of a felony in North Carolina. If I spoke the words contained in the books that are available to students today, I would be asked to stop since children were present. How hypocritical would this be, since it is the 7th graders that are being exposed to this ‘filth’.
‘Filth’ is defined by Webster as: “obscene and offensive language or printed material” — which is the reference the Lt. Governor of North Carolina made.
Here are slide titles with graphics that I will not describe, reportedly being used in Michigan schools and confirmed by the superintendent:
- “How do we define sex?
- What is sexual intercourse?
- What do these words mean?
- What are private behaviors?
- What is ejaculation?
- How do you manage an ejaculation?”
In addition, books are available with excepts such as “Sex between men and boys.” One book describes a 4th grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male. The other book has detailed illustrations of a man having sex with a boy. Other schools are reported showing ‘masturbation’ videos to 1st graders. In Ohio, students are reportedly asked to “write a sex scene you wouldn’t show your mom” and then “rewrite the sex scene from above into one that you’d let your mom read.”
From one book (p.85), “I can’t wait to have your **** in my mouth. I am going to give you the **** job of your life and then I want you inside me.” From another book (p.91), “What if I told you I touched another guy’s ****? What if I told you I ****** it? I was 10-year-old but it’s true. I ****** Doug Goble’s ****, the real estate guy, and he ****** mine too.”
School districts are exposing kids to transgenderism.
A Murray, Utah teacher read a book about a transgender child to a class of third graders last month — which set off a backlash from parents. In response, the school district has now suspended a program aimed at introducing kids to more diverse and inclusive literature.
The uproar started when a student at Horizon Elementary brought a copy of “Call Me Max” from home and asked the teacher to read it aloud during story time. The book is an illustrated account of a young transgender boy who educates his own teacher and classmates about his identity.
In Montgomery County, Maryland, educators are actively keeping information about something as critical as a student’s gender identity preference hidden from parents—an action in direct contravention of legally guaranteed parental rights, and in violation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
So, we respectfully ask, would you consider this school provided material, ‘filth’?
If so, please protect your children, please get involved in their education and please support Lt. Governor, Mark Robinson is his bid to lead the great state of North Carolina as the next Governor.
