A Chinese American woman who survived the Chinese Cultural Revolution is warning that the same thing she saw in dictator Mao Tse Tung’s aggressive social reform is happening in America today, particularly in the conflict between parents and school boards.
Xi Van Fleet fled China during the period of time when the Chinese Communist Party sought to cleanse the culture of all influences deemed to threaten the party’s agenda, resulting in thousands of businesses destroyed and countless lives lost Mao’s zealous thugs ravaged the country and sought to eliminate many aspects of classical Chinese culture and traditions.
Her son graduated from Loudon County Schools in 2015, the district that has been embroiled in conflict and controversy as the school board works to implement controversial policies regarding transgender students and curricula involving ideas like critical race theory.
Parents have been showing up at school board meetings to protest and voice their concerns over the radical changes, one teacher, Tanner Cross, is engaged in a legal battle with the district after they suspended him for voicing his objections to policy which compelled him to use a student’s “preferred pronoun” on the basis of his devout Christian faith.
Meanwhile, earlier this month, the National School Board Association called on the Biden administration earlier this month to address the “threats” posed to school board members and teachers across the country as “domestic terrorism,” a call which the Department of Justice promptly heeded, directing the Federal Bureau of Investigations to meet with local law enforcement and school officials for this purpose.
The NASB, in its letter to the Biden administration, cited the arrest of a father at a Loudoun County school board meeting over the summer as an example of these “threats.”
The man, however, is actually the father of a girl who was allegedly sexually assaulted by a transgender student in a gender-neutral bathroom at a Loudoun County school — and he and his wife are now suing the district.
Moments before his arrest, the superintendent of Loudoun County schools told meeting attendants that there had not been any reported incidents of assault involving transgender students at Loudoun County schools.
Again, this is the man that was cited by the NASB as an example that outraged parents at school board members should be treated as potential domestic terrorists, to be clear.
“When I was in China, I spent my entire school years in the Chinese Cultural Revolution, so I’m very, very familiar with the communist tactics of how to divide people, how they canceled the Chinese traditional culture and destroyed our heritage,” Van Fleet recently explained to Fox News.
“All this is happening in America,” she declared.
“They call(ed) them racists for a long time, but that did not work,” she continued, referring to the parents who have opposed critical race theory.
“So, they have to upgrade to domestic terrorists.”
“This is about your children,” she urged parents. “For me, I’m fighting it because it is about our future. The future of this country. So we cannot be intimidated.”
