Miranda Devine: Virginia dad vilified for defending daughter shows rot at heart of system

‼️The callousness is what is so hard to stomach from the progressive elites of Loudon County, Virginia, the wealthy dormitory community of Washington,DC

2/ ‼️ They laughed and cheered when plumber Scott Smith was crash-tackled by police and humiliated at a school board meeting on June 22 as he tried to raise the plight of his 15-year-old daughter who he says was raped and sodomized in the school bathroom by a boy in a skirt.

There was no compassion, either ,
from superintendent Scott Ziegler, who claimed bafflingly at the meeting that there had been no assault in a school restroom anywhere in Loudon County and airily dismissed parents’..
4/ “..concerns about the risks of transgender bathrooms.Then he gave a little woke homily to show those powerless parents in the room who really was in charge.

“Time Magazine in 2016 called that a red herring . . . we’ve heard it several times tonight from our public speakers..
5/ “.. but the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist,” he said.

Tell that to the Smith family.

The rainbow activist who allegedly threatened Smith’s livelihood at that meeting told him point blank his daughter’s rape three weeks earlier did not happen,..
6/ “.. as if she would know.

He raised his voice and called her a ‘bitch’.

For that mild response to her provocation he was arrested. The video of his humiliation, his T-shirt ripped, his belly exposed, his pants pulled down, went viral globally.

The Soros-funded left-wing prosecutor, Buta Biberaj, reportedly a decarceration, proponent tried to get Smith jailed for his disruptive behavior.
8/ ‼️ She’s against jailing criminals but all for locking up an apolitical dad looking for accountability from a school which failed to protect his daughter.

Jeering progressives demonized and dehumanized him.
9/ “ They fat-shamed him on social media and toasted their success at getting him banned from the next school board meeting at which they passed their policy to turn all Loudon County school bathrooms transgender.

Who cares if that made girls like Smith’s daughter less safe..
10/ “.. in the process?

‼️ The subterfuge might have been successful if it hadn’t been for an enterprising reporter at the Daily Wire who bothered to find out Smith’s side of the story — and a horrific tale it is.
11/ ‼️ The alleged rapist of his daughter was quietly shipped to another school where he struck again.

That’s a failure of the school system of Loudon County, which quite obviously did not take the Smiths’ complaint seriously.
12/ “ “If someone would have sat and listened for thirty seconds to what Scott had to say, they would have been mortified and heartbroken,” Smith’s attorney, Elizabeth Lancaster, told the Daily Wire.

But no one listened.
13/ “ Instead, Smith, 48, became the poster boy for the new “domestic terrorism” the Biden administration has concocted to destroy anyone who gets in the way of their agenda.

“The left-wing activist group National School Boards Association wrote a letter to President Biden..
14/ “.. citing Smith’s case, without naming him, and urged the administration to use the Patriot Act to crack down on parents who demand a say in their children’s schools.

It didn’t seem to occur to Biden that targeting disgruntled parents with legislation designed for..
15/ “.. foreign suicide bombers might be over the top.

‼️Five days later, on Oct. 4, the obedient Attorney General Merrick Garland issued his infamous memo which sics the FBI onto parents like Smith.

16/ “ There wasn’t a word of compassion in the statement released Wednesday by Loudoun County Public Schools. Citing privacy concerns and respect for police matters, it excused itself and school board members for their silence about the Smith debacle and the false information..
17/ “.. provided to parents.

“What’s happened to Scott Smith’s daughter and the second victim is something that could happen to all of our children,” says Smith’s friend and fellow Loudon County parent Elicia Brand. “It’s not a transgender issue. This is a child endangerment..
18/ “.. issue.

“We don’t want politics and ideologies and agendas in school . .We don’t want sexually explicitly material in schools [or] normalizing pedophilia.”

She says the reason the June 22 meeting got rowdy was because the progressive school board had “stacked the deck”..
19/ “.. by opening public speaking slots a day early so that pro-transgender bathroom activists could fill the slate.

One after the other activists spoke in favor of the unpopular policy and traduced the majority of parents in the room as bigots.
20/ “ One said “hate . . . seems to be dripping off the followers of Jesus in this room.”

When parents in the room objected, the board threatened to close the meeting and instructed them to use “jazz hands” — silent gestures instead of cheering, jeering or clapping.
21/ “ Then the anti-Jesus speaker was reallocated her time so she could repeat the hateful remark.

When former Senator Dick Black finally had a chance to speak, he said it was “absurd . . for teachers to call boys girls, and girls boys” and lamented that Loudon County schools..
22/ “.. were “teaching children to hate others because of their skin color.”

The crowd gave him a rousing cheer instead of using jazz hands. So the board closed down the meeting, causing uproar.
23/ “ Caught amid this Kafkaesque nightmare was a father trying to protect his daughter.

Too bad.

He’s an inconvenient reproach to the perverted equity agenda, so he must be crushed like a bug.”

‼️When Abraham Lincoln spoke the prophetic words "a house divided against itself cannot stand" in a speech before the Illinois Republican state convention in 1858, he was a relatively..

2/ “.. unknown politician.  

He saw the obvious:

North and South were hopelessly divided over the issue of slavery — or more fundamentally, states' rights — and a breakup was all but unavoidable.  

This came to pass in just a few years' time in the form of the Civil War.
3/ “ Is America nearing a similar point in 2021?  

Today it is not so much North versus South or free states versus slave states; rather, it is red states versus blue states, the heartland versus the coastal states, elites versus middle class, leftists versus conservatives.
