Sheboygan Schools Under Fire: The Woke War on Red School Districts [OPINION]


Editor’s note: The images contained in this article are EXTREMELY graphic, but we feel must be shown to tell the story in full. 

Part 1 of a series.

Trump handily won Sheboygan County in 2016 and 2020. In 2022, residents elected not only two Republican Assembly members, incumbent Terry Katsma, and political newcomer Amy Binsfeld, but also Devin LeMahieu, the Wisconsin State Senate Majority Leader. Considering these facts, how woke could a school district comprised of solid Republican voters be?

As it turns out, the red that covers any district map in Wisconsin is often deceiving and can tragically mask woke shenanigans in conservative and rural school districts. Don’t believe me? Well, after I tell you about the woke war on Sheboygan, you will. This saga is such that I must divide it into several installments over the coming weeks. But first, I will focus on the recent discovery of pornographic materials in the digital and physical Sheboygan South High Library.

Grandma turned super sleuth

When a Sheboygan grandmother contacted me for help removing inappropriate books from the school library, admittedly, I wasn’t expecting to find much of an issue. After all, this is Sheboygan, not Madison. Still, it didn’t take long for me to figure out that something strange and terrible was happening in her district.

In early January, grandmother Judi Pool and a group of parents-turned-super sleuths wanted to know if lurid sexual content was in the high school Library, so Judi made an appointment with the Sheboygan South High School Principal and went to work. What she and the other parents found was shocking.

It wasn’t just the graphic images, which, as you can see, are jaw-dropping, but the normalizing and ideation of adult/child and child/child sexual encounters. “For those that have seen the images, they are very disturbing, even for adults to see,” according to a recent Sheboygan parent and resident Jon Paul who spoke in support of removing the harmful content from the school library at Sheboygan’s January 24th school board meeting.

Another concerning aspect about this situation is the library itself; immediately upon entry, Judi couldn’t help but notice the long row of various “Pride Flags” hanging from the ceiling. “I couldn’t believe it, I saw a row of about ten brightly colored flags celebrating sexual and gender diversity, but I could not find even one American flag.” Said the 71-year-old grandmother, “It broke my heart. Where is the celebration of all the men and women who gave their lives so we could be free?”

The Parents Fight Back

Usually, revelations like these would be fodder for Facebook, the content would be shadow banned, barely able to reach the residents of a community. But with the advice and support of parental rights groups and other grassroots activists, members of the “Sheboygan County For Freedoms” were able to put out an impressive call to action, including a formal press release to local newspapers, tv stations, and conservative media. What happened next only solidifies a new reality; ordinary parents, grandparents, and community members are learning how to investigate, organize, influence, and spur their communities to action.

Sheboygan schools Soon images of the pornographic material in the South High Library were posted and re-posted by local and national influencers on Twitter and Facebook, including Libs of TikTok. As the news went viral, Conservative talk show hosts Vicki McKenna and Dan O’Donnell reported on the disturbing images of teens engaging in various sex acts and the alarming content that included pedophilia, incest, and rape. Even local news outlets covered the story, albeit with a dose of nauseating bias.

Sheboygan schools The public was urged to call, email and show up to the Sheboygan Area School District board meeting in order to make their voices heard. Concerned citizens put up the bat signal, and it worked.

Last Tuesday’s school board meeting was packed; the woke were defenseless. Groups like The Sheboygan County LGBTQ Alliance seemed to justify the obscene and graphic materials arguing the content represented diversity and inclusion.

But try as they might to re-frame the issue, the disturbing images and gratuitous dialogue spoke for themselves, and only a crazy person finds educational value in pornography, particularly in public schools. Awareness sparked outrage and forced accountability. Three of the five questionable books with the most graphic images were removed.

Sheboygan schools

“As you know, concerns have been raised regarding controversial books in the South High School library. Following the process outlined within the Board policy, Reconsideration of Materials Included in Library Collection, the principal of South High School decided to remove three books from the library’s collection: Fun Home, Gender Queer, and Are You My Mother.” –Sheboygan Area School District School Board President

Online libraries, purveyors of porn?

Another concern is the availability of graphic pornographic material to students on the district’s online digital catalog. Schools and public libraries have digital platforms that intersect with one another, only recently did parents discover that children of all ages could access books on highly sensitive topics- through these digital platforms that can shield both teachers AND parents from oversight.

Most Wisconsin school districts use one popular app SORA; however, the Sheboygan Area School District (SASD) uses the Follett Destiny online book catalog. On this site, Sheboygan parents initially found dozens of controversial books, the five most objectionable were Fun Home, Gender Queer, Are You My Mother, Ace of Hearts, and Lawn Boy. Since the controversy, the SASD Superintendent has also ordered the deletion of all five graphic books from the online catalog.

Sheboygan schools

Despite this triumph of common sense, Sheboygan parents and community members have every right to be concerned administrators will once again turn a blind eye to woke activists – aka district librarians and DEI consultants – as soon as the controversy subsides. How long until the graphic novels and sexual ‘how-to’ guides return? After all, who will stop them?

Administrators have learned that it’s easier to ask forgiveness than permission; they have also correctly observed that many elected Republicans in Wisconsin are NOT a force to be reckoned with; so they just have to wait out the pesky parents and then carry on “doing the work.”

No more. It is time for a reckoning. Elected officials from school boards to state and national legislators must safeguard parental rights and protect children from harmful content and ideologies that absolutely do not belong in classrooms. We must return to reason.

The light of freedom, a depository of wisdom

Only a few years ago, overtly sexual cartoonish materials geared towards kids would have been considered pornographic and unsuitable by everyone, even the most ardent progressive.

Sadly, post-Covid woke derangement syndrome has addled the minds of some folks, which though small in number, make up the majority in the field of education. The good news is that common sense is slowly but surely making a comeback. Grassroots activists, parents, grandparents, and community members are on the front lines standing for academic excellence, parental rights in education, transparency, and acting as a shield against radical ideology.

Solzhenitsyn said, “We must recognize that a concentration of evil and a tremendous force of hatred is spreading throughout the world. We must stand up against it and not hasten to give, give, give, everything that it wants to swallow.” For him, the West represented the light of freedom. The West was the stronghold of the spirit and the depository of wisdom. I believe we can be that again. I also think the grassroots cannot continue fighting against ideological culture wars and bad education policies alone.

Save the schools, save the world

As I write this, the Wisconsin Legislature is deep in talks about a flat tax proposal. I wish I could say I knew more about this effort, I really do, but I lack the bandwidth to care about something as likely to happen as former President Trump dropping out to endorse current Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as the Republican nominee for President. Like so many parents, I am too engrossed in the fight to save an entire generation of children from radical activists determined to “fundamentally transform” them AND our state and country.

And as much as I appreciate tax reductions, I cannot bring myself to prioritize that before protecting the children of this state from an onslaught of terrible ideologies and harmful content. I cannot take the blue pill and forget that public schools are becoming increasingly unsafe for students in every way possible.

The students in Wauwatosa are exposed to physical violence every day; too often, as they walk the halls, they must keep their heads down and hope to go unnoticed. Parents in Wauwatosa also have to trust the district will respect their “opt-out” forms and hope their third-grade daughter isn’t exposed to a curriculum that explores “Wet Dreams, Spontaneous Erections, and Raging Hormones.”

In Eau Claire, Kettle Moraine, and Steven’s Point, parents worry, is today the day a Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) ally writes a Gender Support Plan for their kid? Will a school counselor and principal take steps to socially transition (the process by which a trans-identifying child makes others aware of their new gender identity) their child without their consent?

In Sheboygan, parents and grandparents are now concerned that the community they worked so hard to build, has become ground zero for an agenda that will cost them what they hold most dear, their kids and grandkids.

Sheboygan schools

The truth is Wisconsin Republicans are not doing enough to help parents who feel trapped in broke systems and woke institutions that don’t correctly educate; they indoctrinate. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is a HYDRA, and Tony Evers’ re-election makes bold change quite tricky.

But that doesn’t mean the DPI should be allowed to continue to run as a fiefdom; Jill Underly is not my feudal lord and I am not her serf. Quick, subtle fixes in education are like trying to use Gorilla tape on a busted sewer pipe, but the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. There is a $7 billion surplus in Wisconsin coffers, and not a dime of it should go to the Wisconsin DPI until and unless they are held accountable to the parents and students of this state. To be blunt, this woke garbage has got to stop.

It took a long march through the institutions to get us here, and it will take another arduous march to recover lost ground. Let’s take the first step. If we save the schools, we save the world.

Trump's First Criminal Trial

Five Key Questions Ahead of Trump’s First Criminal Trial

Jury selection is set to begin Monday in the first-ever criminal trial of a former U.S. president.

Former President Donald Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts related to charges he paid hush money to adult film actress Stormy Daniels through a lawyer and covered it up as a legal expense before being elected president.

Trump has attempted to delay the start of the New York state trial several times, including three longshot tactics judges rejected this week.

What charges does Trump face in the New York hush money case?

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has charged Trump with 34 counts of falsifying business records related to money paid to Daniels and another woman, former Playboy model Karen McDougal. Bragg has alleged Trump broke New York law when he falsified with the intent to commit or conceal another crime.

Prosecutors allege Trump falsified internal records kept by his company, hiding the true nature of payments that involve Daniels ($130,000), McDougal ($150,000), and Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen ($420,000). Prosecutors allege the money was logged as legal expenses, not reimbursements. Both Cohen and Daniels are expected to testify.

Cohen is expected to be a key witness in the trial. Daniels has said she expects to testify.

Former Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., Bragg's predecessor, did not bring the case to trial.

What happens on Monday?

Prosecutors, defense attorneys and Donald Trump are expected to be present when the trial before Judge Juan Merchan gets started Monday. The first step will be picking a jury, a process that could take a week or more depending on how things progress. The trial is expected to last six to eight weeks.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys will select 12 jurors and six alternates from a pool of potentially hundreds of people. Each juror will answer 42 questions designed to determine if they can be impartial in the high-profile trial of a polarizing former president. The jurors will remain anonymous because of security concerns.

Once a jury is seated, it's on to opening statements where prosecutors and defense attorneys will get to address the jury about what they plan to show during the trial.

What is Trump's defense to the charges?

Trump has maintained he did nothing wrong and has accused Bragg of bringing a politically motivated case involving conduct in 2016 during a presidential election year as Trump faces incumbent Joe Biden in a rematch of the 2020 election.

Trump has spoken out against the judge, the district attorney and other involved in the case repeatedly. Trump's comments prompted a gag order from the judge who said Trump can't talk publicly about certain people involved in the case and their families.

"The White House Thugs should not be allowed to have these dangerous and unfair Biden Trials during my campaign for President. All of them, civil and criminal, could have been brought more than three years ago. It is an illegal attack on a Political Opponent. It is Communism at its worst, and Election Interference at its Best. No such thing has ever happened in our Country before," Trump wrote on his social media platform Truth Social this week. "On Monday I will be forced to sit, GAGGED, before a HIGHLY CONFLICTED & CORRUPT JUDGE, whose hatred for me has no bounds. All of these New York and D.C. 'Judges' and Prosecutors have the same MINDSET. Nobody but this Soros Prosecutor, Alvin Bragg, wanted to take this ridiculous case. All legal scholars say it is a sham. BIDEN'S DOJ IS RUNNING THE CASE. Just think of it, these animals want to put the former President of the United States (who got more votes than any sitting President!), & the PARTY'S REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE, IN JAIL, for doing absolutely nothing wrong. It is a RUSH TO THE FINISH. SO UNFAIR!"

Will Trump take the stand?

That's not clear yet. Trump said last month that he'd be willing to testify at trial if needed.

Could Trump go to jail?

It's too earlier to tell what will happen if Trump is convicted. Under New York state law, falsifying business records in the first degree is a Class E felony that carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison.

Trump's age and lack of any prior criminal convictions could work in his favor at sentencing if he's convicted. His attacks on the judge could have the opposite effect at sentencing. Before sentencing, the judge would look at sentencing guidelines, recommendations from prosecutors and any other pre-sentence reports.

In late March, Trump said that he wasn't worried about a conviction when asked if he thought a conviction could hurt his chances of returning to the White House.

"It could also make me more popular because the people know it's a scam," he said. "It's a Biden trial, there is no trial, there's a Biden trial."

Whatever happens during the trial, Trump will be protected by the U.S. Secret Service.

Even if convicted and sentenced to jail, Trump could continue his campaign to re-take the White House.

"The Constitution does not bar felons from serving as President," said Richard Hasen, professor of law and political science at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Trump could not pardon himself from any state charges, Hasen said.

Justice Anne Walsh Bradley

Liberal Justice Anne Walsh Bradley Not Running for Reelection

(The Center Square) – Wisconsin’s next supreme court race could be even more contentious and even more expensive than the last one.

Liberal Justice Anne Walsh Bradley on Thursday surprised the state when she announced she will not run for re-election next year.

"My decision has not come lightly. It is made after careful consideration and reflection. I know I can do the job and do it well. I know I can win re-election, should I run. But it's just time to pass the torch, bring fresh perspectives to the court," Walsh Bradley said in a statement.

She is one of Wisconsin’s longest serving justices, serving her third 10-year term on the court.

“In the 177-year history of the court, only four justices have served longer than my length of service,” she wrote.

Walsh Bradley’s decision means the next election will be open.

Former Republican attorney general, and current Waukesha County judge, Brad Schimel has already jumped into the race. There aren’t any declared Democrats yet.

Schimel on Thursday said Walsh Bradley’s decision isn’t changing anything for him.

“From the beginning of my campaign, I made it clear that I’m not just running against one person, I’m running against this Court’s leftist majority,” Schimel said. “I wish Justice Ann Walsh Bradley well in retirement after decades of public service. I look forward to continuing the fight to bring integrity and respect for the Constitution back to the Supreme Court of Wisconsin.”

Wisconsin’s last race for the supreme court, in April of 2023, set records for spending. The race between Justice Janet Protasiewicz and former Justice Dan Kelly cost more than $56 million. That makes the 2023 Wisconsin race the most expensive judicial race in American history. Many court observers and politicos in Wisconsin say the 2025 race could be just as expensive, or even more expensive.

Protasiewicz’s victory flipped the Wisconsin Supreme Court to a 4-3 liberal majority for the first time in 15 years.

Lawsuit Against State Bar of Wisconsin

State Bar of Wisconsin Changing Diversity Definition to End Discrimination Suit

(The Center Square) – The State Bar of Wisconsin isn’t ending its diversity clerkship that faced a federal discrimination lawsuit, instead it is changing the definition of diversity.

The State Bar agreed to tweak the program and make it about the diversity of ideas and experiences, rather than base the clerkship on race and gender.

“The settlement clarifies the definition of ‘diversity’ but makes no changes to the program,” State Bar Executive Director Larry Martin said. “The Diversity Clerkship Program, which has been creating opportunities for Wisconsin-based law students for three decades, will continue to exist and to operate in its current form.”

The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty sued, saying it’s against the law to hire anyone based on race or gender.

WILL Associate Counsel Skylar Croy said they have had to make it a habit to remind people of that fact.

“Defeating unconstitutional DEI programs has become WILL’s area of expertise, and we are not stopping here,” Croy said in a statement. “While we are pleased with this victory, we know the fight is far from over. In fact, this is only the beginning of a movement, and our lawsuit will provide a roadmap for future victories in all 50 states.”

WILL has also sued over DEI programs at the University of Wisconsin that it says are race-based.

The bar said the only thing that is changing about the Diversity Clerkship is the focus on race in its definition of diversity.

“Under the settlement, the new definition states: Diversity means including people with differing characteristics, beliefs, experiences, interests, and viewpoints. Diversity promotes an environment in which all individuals are treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their differences and without regard to stereotypes, and helps to ensure a better understanding and consideration of the needs and viewpoints of others with whom we interact,” the bar added.

WILL sued on behalf of Daniel Suhr, who is a lawyer in the state and is required to be a member of the bar.

After the settlement, Suhr said the new definition is the first step toward restoring fairness to the Diversity Clerkship.

“Premier internship opportunities should be available to students based on merit – not race. I am proud to partner with WILL to set a strong precedent for the next generation of law students,” he said in a statement.

The Diversity Clerkship Program is a 10-week, paid summer job where first-year Marquette University Law School and University of Wisconsin Law School students are matched with law firms, corporate legal departments and government agencies.

Group Allegedly Involved in Pre-pandemic Wuhan Coronavirus Research to Testify Before Congress

Lawmakers plan to interrogate the head of Eco Health Alliance, the group accused of conducting dangerous coronavirus research in Wuhan, China just before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic will hold a public hearing May 1 where Dr. Peter Daszak is expected to testify. Daszak is the president of Eco Health Alliance, a U.S. nonprofit health research company that used taxpayer-funded grants to conduct coronavirus research.

The lawmakers on the committee also allege that newly obtained documents show Daszak’s previous testimony misled the committee or misrepresented the facts.

“These revelations undermine your credibility as well as every factual assertion you made during your transcribed interview,” the letter said. “The Committees have a right and an obligation to protect the integrity of their investigations, including the accuracy of testimony during a transcribed interview. We invite you to correct the record.”

One of those obtained documents appears to show Daszak saying he plans to work with Wuhan researchers.

A federal grant database shows that Eco Health Alliance received millions of dollars since 2014 from the federal government to study coronaviruses that originate in animals and in some cases can transfer to humans, with an emphasis on China.

A key and highly disputed part of the inquiry is whether Eco Health Alliance’ research included making coronaviruses more dangerous,.

Under former President Donald Trump, the federal National Institutes of Health cut all funding to the group in question over the controversy.

Under the Biden administration, funding has been restored, and NIH has emphatically stated that Eco Health Alliance did not play a role in the start of the pandemic.

“Unfortunately, in the absence of a definitive answer, misinformation and disinformation are filling the void, which does more harm than good,” NIH said in a 2021 statement. “NIH wants to set the record straight on NIH-supported research to understand naturally occurring bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, funded through a subaward from NIH grantee EcoHealth Alliance. Analysis of published genomic data and other documents from the grantee demonstrate that the naturally occurring bat coronaviruses studied under the NIH grant are genetically far distant from SARS-CoV-2 and could not possibly have caused the COVID-19 pandemic. Any claims to the contrary are demonstrably false.”

In 2022 and 2023 NIH awarded Eco Health Alliance a total of at least $1,230,594 to research “the potential for future bat coronavirus emergence in Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam.”

The idea that the COVID-19 virus began in a Wuahn lab was once denounced as a conspiracy theory but has now gotten more widespread credibility.

The FBI announced last year after its investigation that COVID-19 most likely came from a Wuhan lab. That news came just after the Department of Energy also said the Wuhan lab was most likely the origin of COVID-19, though neither agency expressed a high degree of confidence in that theory.

Other groups have suggested it came from the Wuhan wet market, though no definitive answer has been settled on.

Trump's First Criminal Trial

Trump Calls for Sanctions, Censure of Special Counsel Jack Smith

Former President Donald Trump called for special counsel Jack Smith to be sanctioned or censured for "attacking" the judge in Trump's classified documents case.

Trump's comments on Thursday come after Smith and his team of prosecutors made it clear they think Judge Aileen Cannon's latest ruling was based on "an unstated and fundamentally flawed legal premise." Prosecutors objected to Cannon's order to produce proposed jury instructions under two different legal scenarios. Smith said both legal scenarios were flawed.

In response to the judge's order, prosecutors said they need clarification on Cannon's position so they can appeal if needed. They asked the judge to decide before the trial if the Presidential Records Act "has an impact on the element of unauthorized possession" of classified documents. Failure to do so could make it impossible to prosecute Trump because of the double jeopardy clause in the Fifth Amendment, which prohibits anyone from being prosecuted twice for the same crime.

Trump lashed out Thursday morning.

"Deranged 'Special' Counsel Jack Smith, who has a long record of failure as a prosecutor, including a unanimous decision against him in the U.S. Supreme Court, should be sanctioned or censured for the way he is attacking a highly respected Judge, Aileen Cannon, who is presiding over his FAKE Documents Hoax case in Florida," Trump wrote in a message posted to Truth Social.

Trump also said Smith shouldn't be on the case.

"He shouldn’t even be allowed to participate in this sham case, where I, unlike Crooked Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and all the rest, come under the Presidential Records Act," Trump wrote. "I DID NOTHING WRONG, BUT BIDEN DID, AND THEY LET HIM OFF SCOT-FREE. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN, JACK? A TWO TIERED SYSTEM OF JUSTICE. ELECTION INTERFERENCE!"

Trump has pleaded not guilty to 40 felony counts that allege he kept sensitive military documents, shared them with people who didn't have security clearance and tried to get around the government's attempts to get them back.

Trump faces a rematch against President Joe Biden in this year's presidential election. Trump also faces three other criminal cases in New York, Georgia and another federal case in Washington D.C. He's used millions of dollars in campaign contributions to pay his mounting legal bills.

Trump also is appealing a $464 million fine in a civil case in New York. He posted a $175 million bond to appeal that decision.

Biden Cancels Replenishment of Strategic Oil Reserves

The Biden administration will pause its replenishment of the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserves because oil has become too expensive, the White House said.

Earlier in his term, Biden drained about half of the U.S. oil reserves down to their lowest level in decades in order to try to lower gas prices, which surpassed a record national average of more than $5 per gallon in 2022 before coming back down. Now, Biden’s effort to replenish those reserves have been stalled.

Critics warn that lower oil reserves are a national security issue for the U.S. If the reserves are low when a larger war or crisis occurs, refilling the reserves could be much more difficult and certainly more expensive.

“It’s pure insanity to watch the Biden Administration cut American oil production and then claim they can’t refill our critical reserve because of the price,” Daniel Turner, founder and executive director for Power The Future, said in a statement. “Joe Biden drained the SPR for political reasons, cut our domestic production for his climate agenda and now he’s leaving our critical reserve more vulnerable because he’s incompetent. As a result, Americans are paying more at the pump, more at the grocery store and our SPR is less full during a time of rising turmoil in the Middle East.”

Biden has taken fire from Republicans for hindering U.S. oil production and lowering the reserves. The Biden administration has increased regulatory pushback for oil domestic production while raising ongoing concerns about climate change.

“The Biden administration’s war on U.S. energy is crippling hardworking Americans and has led to our Strategic Petroleum Reserves being at their lowest levels since the 1908s,” U.S. Rep. Mike Collins, R-Ga., wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “Reverse course and restore U.S. energy dominance!"
