Don’t worry George. It is all turning around. If they have to resort to cheating to win an election, such cheating evidences an ideology which is a failure. California might become a Soviet state but the rest of the country is on to the false hopes of what California espouses. Everything will work out towards freedom. Freedom will reign.

Pushing back on the indoctrination -

The suit was filed Wednesday by a mixed-race high school senior at Democracy Prep at the Agassi campus in Las Vegas, who claims he was forced to take the course -- titled "Sociology of Change" -- in order to graduate.

William Clark, whose mother is Black and deceased father was White, claims he felt discriminated against and harassed by various aspects of the course -- including an alleged assertion that by not identifying with an oppressive group, students were exercising their privilege or underscoring their status as an oppressor.

One of the instructional slides included in the complaint shows lists dominant groups in American culture as "white," "male," "middle/upper class," "heterosexual," and "protestant/Christian," while "everyone else" is classified as "submissive."

Kathryn Bass, Clark's teacher who is named as a defendant in the suit, similarly associates elements of her own identity -- like "White, Irish, American citizen" -- with "privilege." Others like "female" and "working class" are associated with an "oppressive" label. Meanwhile, she says she's "both privilege and oppressive" in her identifying as "bisexual" and having a mental health disability.

Clark and others in his class allegedly objected when they were taught those ideas, according to the complaint. The complaint, which was filed in a Nevada district court, claims that Bass "terminated class discussion" amid in response to Clark's claim that "everyone can be racist" and "that prejudice anywhere from anyone can harm others."

"For this protected speech and others like it, Defendant Kathryn Bass terminated class discussion immediately with the intent to chill and discourage future objections to Defendants’ sponsored politicized ideology," the complaint reads. It also points out that although the school has encouraged other forms of dissent, like "occupying a cafeteria," the same privilege seemed to not extend to Clark.

Besides Bass, the lawsuit names other higher-level officials, whom they claim were involved in pushing the curriculum onto students.

Clark's mother, Gabrielle, told Fox News that the instruction her son received created psychological distress for both of them. "I was really worried about his physical safety," she said.

Her son is "generally regarded as [W]hite by his peers," according to the complaint, and has "green eyes and blondish hair."

"Defendants, who include a state funded and sponsored charter school, teachers and senior administrators, have deliberately created a hostile educational environment for Plaintiff William Clark, who, unlike his classmates appears to be and is regarded by his peers as white," the complaint reads. "Defendants thus discriminated on the basis of race and color, in addition to sex, gender and religion, in violation of Title VI and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972."
