‘I’d Do It Again’: Mom Fired From Her Job After Speaking At School Board Meeting Remains Undeterred | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A mother of three became the target of local progressive activists and was eventually fired from her job after speaking out at a California school board meeting, where she voiced her concerns over LGBT curriculum for kids.

    Janet Roberson, though, is not deterred from speaking out, and says she'd do it all over again.

    "I would do it again," Roberson told The Daily Wire. "For me to lose a job is horrible and not okay, but I would be willing to do it again. Absolutely. To speak the truth and to stand for freedom and for what our Constitution stands for - 100%."

    Roberson was let go from her position as an independent contractor with Compass, a large real estate company based in New York. She was dismissed from the company by phone only 11 days after she spoke out at a Benicia Unified School District board meeting.

    "Children are asked to identify their pronouns; and this is now part of the 10-year-old curriculum," Roberson told the school board on April 20. "We are alarmed that gender identity is being discussed in math classes. This takes time from core learning and does not benefit the students or our community. Teaching kids that there isn't any standard or truth and you can believe anything you want to believe is not scientifically accurate or medically correct. For example, the notion that a girl can decide to be a boy, or a boy can decide to be a girl, is not true and should not be taught."


    Soon after voicing her concerns, she was met with backlash from local activists. Two local papers published letters complaining about her comments at the board meeting. In the Vallejo Times-Herald, for example, a former City Council candidate named Billy Innes identifies Roberson as a "Compass Real Estate agent" multiple times - an emphasis Roberson believes was made in an attempt to get her fired - and claims the mother delivered a "lengthy, bigoted diatribe denouncing" "gender-inclusionary language." He also claims Roberson promotes racism, transphobia, "anti-COVID safety," and "content that favors Eugenics" on her website. Roberson denies all these claims and described them as horrifying.

    There was also a letter written to Compass from a woman named Nathalie Christian, the treasurer of the Progressive Democrats of Benicia and self-described story development coordinator for The Benicia Independent, an openly left-wing blog.

    In the letter, Christian tells Compass that Roberson has an "anti-equity, anti-trans, anti-Black, and anti-choice" "agenda" and suggests the mother be fired or punished by the company. The letter also asks about Compass' DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) practices and how Compass "disciplines" agents who are "openly engaging in divisive, hateful, harassing, or abusive rhetoric in their personal lives."


    Further, the Progressive Democrats of Benicia member gives the company a deadline of 9 a.m. on May 1 for a response, lest the Benicia Independent move forward with its post on Roberson. Notably, Christian writes that the post "will reach between 1,300 and 1,500 people and will reference that Ms. Roberson is currently employed by Compass."

    Roberson reportedly received a call on May 1 to let her know Compass was cutting ties with her.

    "I just randomly got a call on May 1 - which was the deadline date that the treasurer of the Progressive Democrats had given - from the regional corporate director," Roberson said. "He said, 'Well, Janet, I'm calling to say you can no longer do business as a Compass agent.' And I was - my heart just dropped. I was absolutely devastated."

    "I said, my performance is great, my sales have been stellar, I'm an earner, I'm working so hard and I'm making money for the company," she recalled telling the director. "And he said, this has nothing to do with business. And that really shocked me, and I said, 'Well, that says all you need to say right there. If you're saying this has nothing to do with business, what does this have to do with?' And he said - I don't remember his exact words, but words to the effect of, well, the past week has been a lot."


    Compass has received backlash over the company's apparent removal of Roberson for speaking at a school board meeting, and in a post on X, the company said the "decision to disassociate [Roberson's] license was made at the request of her team's owner."



Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
