A school board member from Pennsylvania stated last week that she would not be casting her vote in favor of “the only cis White male” that was seeking to serve as president, despite openly admitting that individual would be “excellent” in the position. This, ladies and gentlemen, is what woke insanity looks like. A person’s race or nationality has now become more important than their qualifications when it comes to performing a job.
Well, after taking a tremendous amount of heat for her act of bold discrimination, the member has decided to step down.
TheBlaze is reporting, “The Upper Moreland Township School District issued a statement on Monday indicating that board director Jennifer Solot, the woman who publicly indicated that race, sexual orientation, and gender were determining factors behind her board of school directors vote, has decided to resign, effective Jan. 2, 2023.”
“She wishes to apologize for her poorly chosen words and does not want to be a distraction from the great things happening in our schools on a daily basis,” the statement, which was signed by board president April Stainback and superintendent Susan Elliott, went on to say.
The statement from UMSD also made the claim that Solot’s comments were not necessarily reflective of the opinions shared by the board of directors nor the district as a whole, going on to reveal that the district values “the full diversity of the community we serve and help all students and staff achieve success without discrimination on the basis of race, color, age, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, ancestry, national origin, marital status, pregnancy, disability, or gender identity.”
TheBlaze then reported, “Board director Greg D’Elia, a father of three who previously had the backing of local Democrats, gave a nod to the leftist sentiment Solot had expressed, underscoring that he ‘supports diversity,’ but adding Solot’s ‘comments did not further diversity and reflected poorly on our community.'”
“UMSD exerts its influence in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The district serves over 3,200 K-12 students,” the report continued. “It held its board president election on Dec. 6. According to the Daily Mail, Solot, who served as treasurer on the board of directors, led the meeting.”
Solot then made the suggestion that choosing the “cis white male” would “send the wrong message” to the incumbent president, April Stainback, who is a straight white woman. Do these people seriously not hear themselves when they say this garbage out loud? It doesn’t matter if a person is white, black, Asian, Native American, whatever. It also does not matter if said individual is male or female. And yes, those are the only two options. What matters is their qualifications, experience, and moral character. Are they legitimately the right person for the job? If so, hire them. Simple.
“I believe that Mr. D’Elia would make an excellent president. However, I feel that electing the only cis white male on this board president of this district sends the wrong message to our community,” Solot stated during the meeting.
For those who might not know, the term “cis” stands for “cisgender” and is a phrase that is used by LGBT activists that denotes a person who does not reject the reality of his or her biological sex.
“According to the school board treasurer, the ‘wrong message’ that would be sent by electing an individual with undesirable immutable characteristics ‘is contrary to what we as a board have been trying to accomplish,” the report added. “In terms of accomplishments, the UMSD recently established a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging committee. This committee ‘will serve to inform policies and practices across the district’ and ‘engage staff in professional development to build understanding of best practices to support belongingness and equity.'”
Solot then said that she believes it is important for the board to “practice what we preach.”
