Beaufort County School Board presented "woke" social studies curriculum | Eastern North Carolina Now

A panel of teachers has recommended a "woke" social studies curriculum for adoption by Beaufort County Schools.   While school board members have not yet been shown the full curriculum, its 15 page promotion brochure spends lots of time assuring it presents "diversity, equity, and inclusion" (DEI) which is part of Critical Race Theory.  The far left has bastardized how they use these terms so that they have stood them on their head.

The school board is now reviewing this proposal, but has not been shown the full curriculum, much less released it for public review.

Purveyors of school teaching materials are all to prone to lie about their contents, which is why they have to be reviewed throoughly.  Here is a good example of that in Georgia:

This is as close as we can get right now.

It may be possible to dig deeper in the future as time passes and the flow of the internet matriculates.

We have the IP address, and we can discover a powerful reverse IP finder, we might get closer to an address.

Case in point, if someone wanted to find me, because of my presence on the internet, they could find me in a matter of minutes.

Stan, can you provide any more info on the impostor? Do you know where in Greenville they were posting from? Being posted locally sure sounds like some nasty dirty tricks from someone at the school central office intent on forcing through this rotten curriculum.

The Political Imposter Infiltrated ENC NOW at 6:46 pm, and then accessed our site 4 more times until they were caught about a couple of hours later.

I would like to thank the diligence of our constant readers in notifying me quickly so I could take immediate action to rid our online community of the loathsome and cowardly behavior of this pathetic Imposter.

The Imposter's IP NOW has been forever blocked from Eastern NC NOW.

It looks like that political scam of the impostor who was impersonating Donald Shreve was local, someone who had access to a computer in Greenville, to throw off the trail. Someone at the schools central office would be the likely suspects.

Regarding the Political Infiltrator Impersonating Donald Shreve, my lead tech guy, to best of his ability with the tools at hand, has determined this as their location:

"An impostor registered, verified via email, and logged in from the following IP Address on Monday, January 23rd, 2023 @ 6:43 pm:

- IP Address:
- Hostname:
- ISP: CenturyLink Communications LLC
- Country: United States
- State/Region: North Carolina (TRUE LOCATION: I'm 99% sure this is correct)
- City: Greenville (TRUE LOCATION: I'm 99% sure this is correct)"

This is as far as we could get at this point. The Imposter has evaded justice ... for now.

Somebody is really concerned that this political indoctrination of our children goes forward to take a dastardly step like this impostor did. Who could it be? Perhaps SAVVAS itself trying to protect its contract? But how would it have that much local information on names of school board members likely to be opposed? Maybe NCDPI whose leftwingers are anll-in on CRT, DEI, and similar indoctrination of children. Most likely someone at Beaufort County Schools central office who is trying to defend this because that's what top bureaucrats in that office want.

Checking that IP address could tell us a lot. If it is from out of state, it is probably SAVVAS itself. If from the Raleigh area, it is probably someone connected to NCDPI. If it is local, it is probably someone from the Beaufort County Schools central office.

For all that are not fully aware of who Stan Deatherage is: I shall explain myself simply as the publisher of Eastern North Carolina NOW.

It has come to my attention that School Board Member Donald Shreve has a comment attributed to him about his position on a new initiative that will be his responsibility to take a position on. I am not aware of that issue. In fact right now, I am not aware of too much because I have been away from my computer for about an hour and a half ... oddly, enough time for me to be out of the loop of an interesting development here on my publication.

The development is not any political/governmental position ascribed to Donald Shreve; the development is that some nefarious bastard Infiltrated our comment section posing as Donald Shreve.

It took me about 10 minutes to figure this out with School Board member Charles Hickman on the telephone, to whom I explained my process in figuring that Donald Shreve /Eastern North Carolina NOW was Infiltrated by a Political Imposter (Could this be a breaking of a federal code?).

Am I certain that it did occur? Absolutely, and here is how they did it.

Someone using IP location of, posing as DonaldShreve, using an email of posed as Donald Shreve making a comment on this post at 6:46 pm.

The comment was approved by me thinking that it was legitimate, as Donald Shreve is an upstanding member of Eastern North Carolina NOW, where he writes posts on education issues, and comments from time to time.

Where I screwed up, after yet another long day, is that the real Donald Shreve would not need my approval for a comment due to his designation as "Trusted Commenter" allows for his commenting without a moderator; plus if I had looked closer, I would have noticed that the status of the FAKE DonaldShreve was that of a User, and Donald's status is that of a valued Writer.

My apologies not only to the members of Eastern North Carolina NOW, but especially to Donald Shreve for this injustice by someone using what is false to further their pathetic purpose.

Tomorrow, I will ask my lead tech guy to investigate the IP of to see if we can discover the perpetrator of this falsehood.

Without objection, as publisher, I will remove the FAKE comment from this Fake DonaldShreve, and all other resulting comments replying to that comment.

Again, I are sorry for this event (this is the first time this has happened on this publication in all of our 14 years), but we will endeavor to discover who uses the offending IP - Wish us luck, and actually ...

That would be a far bigger story than anything published here today, maybe for the entire week.

I just got off the phone with Donald Shreve and he knows nothing about this post. There seems to be an imposter about.

Looking at that website for this company, it is clear that they are on a political mission to politically indoctrinate our children with the grievance culture of the extreme left. This is what NC's first black lieutenant governor, Mark Robinson fought so hard against at the state level but ultimately lost to the leftwing appointees of Governor Cooper. It would be a travesty to adopt this garbage in Beaufort County. Florida rejected it and so should we.

DEI is yet another acronym for a certain sense of well being by those that need to get a firm grip on what is real ... and get that grip on real quick.

We need to graduate smarter students, for NOW our society yearns for a brighter public, an essential component for our Republic to survive.

Of Course, Dr. Martin Luther King was not "woke". He would have stood against that nonsense if he were alive today. Remember his "I have a Dream" speech? He said "I have a dream that one day my daughter will be judged by the content of her character, not the color of her skin." That is directly opposite the woke ideology. In fact, his neice has spoken against the CRT / "woke" agenda, saying the only race that matters is the human race.

This woke / CRT agenda is a problem from the left in many countries. A great speech in opposition to it was given on the floor of the UK House of Commons by Kemi Badenoch, an immigrant from Nigeria serving as a Conservative member of Parliament and Minister of Equalities in the Boris Johnson government. The speech went viral and it can be watched and listened to here:
