NC Lt. Gov Mark Robinson to Newsmax TV: Conservative voices being silenced in schools


North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson says the firing of a principal in Vermont for making a Facebook post critical of the Black Lives Matter movement is another “blatant attempt to flat out discriminate against people because of their political ideologies."

“And that’s just not fair. It’s not the American way and it’s certainly something that should not be done in education,” Robinson said during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “John Bachman Now.”

“What we’re doing here in North Carolina is that we have formed a task force to try to push back against some of these agendas we see going on.

“A lot of these schools try to pride themselves on being a safe space for everyone, where all voices are allowed in, where we want to hear everybody’s concerns. Unfortunately, sometimes that’s not the case.”

Robinson’s task force will collect complaints from parents, students, and teachers in public schools from across the state “who are literally afraid to speak up” to their school boards.

Tiffany Riley, who was principal of Windsor High School in Rutland, Vermont, from 2015-2020, was fired last summer after she said she did not agree with the “coercive measures taken to get” BLM’s point across, although she did write that she “firmly believes Black Lives Matter.”

She also wrote that, “While I want to get behind BLM, I do not think people should be made to feel they have to choose black race over human race.”

Robinson said voices like Riley’s shouldn’t be shut down, specifically in the education realm.

“We cannot reach a solution without having an honest, open dialogue. When it comes to education, we have to make sure we are leaving these divisive, political conversations outside of the classroom.

“Everybody is entitled to their opinion, you are not, however, entitled to put your opinions onto impressionable young minds in the classroom.”

Riley is suing the school district, claiming she was wrongly dismissed and that her First Amendment rights were violated.

This is just another form of cancel culture. These people that are supporting these groups should do a little research. Antifa and Black Lives Matter are funded by George Soros group Open Society. These groups started in the late 60's and early 70's mostly known as The Weather Underground. Susan Rosenberg who was a strong part of The Weather Underground has been on the BLM board. She was pardoned by Bill Clinton before he left office. What was her crime you ask??? She and other members from The Weather Underground bombed the Capital in 1983! So they just want to silence anyone that doesn't agree with them. If BLM & Antifa was really concerned they would be in the streets saving and protecting all the innocent children being gunned down everyday in Chicago. Bravo for this teacher that stood up and took a stand!
