The ENI Slate: Sex Ed, Nymphs & Satyrs Edition

Here we go, yo. We are entering “you can’t make this up” territory yet again. We are familiar from a safe distance with one of the parents endorsing the ENI Slate on their new web page. That individual is Chris Charuhas. He is an “author” and web content provider. In fact one must wonder for very valid reasons if he is behind this revamped piece of mess (his cottage business is making campaign websites, if you didn’t choose to click the link), but we digress…His endorsement is the second in this list on the Goals page of their site.

It’s probably worth a Google or so to find out what these other individuals’ beliefs may be that could become shared goals with the Hate Slate.

This is where it really gets good, because these are people who are obsessed with personal bodily safety lessons that they refer to as grooming, and they share goals with the person (mythological beast?) who they have cited on their own page in the screenshot above. This man’s concept of individual identity and sexual orientations departs from gender and extends into the range of the mythological. Just get a load of his 2016 publication:

Would this be a part of the proposed curriculum? 16 possible feminine/masculine combinations? Some are goats? Some are mermaids? Mermen? Merfolk?

This is all really very fascinating. We have been really concerned that when they say “education, not indoctrination” that they clearly mean that they only wish to indoctrinate the children to their own closely held bigoted points of view. We had no idea their range was so expansive as to include satyrs & nymphs.

Oh dear, this one appears to be out of print at this time. The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe meets sex ed will be unavailable to FCPS, even if this fantastical slate is able to take the reins. (Shudder.)

Won’t it be ironic if they can’t remove his endorsement from their website because he is the only person connected to the campaign who can use a hosting platform? (Yokel quietly crosses fingers…)

We don’t wish to be too difficult with regard to Mr. Charuhas’ creative endeavors, and we do hope those of you with open minds may choose to order one of his fascinating adult resources. It’s a shame the sex toy sales lady didn’t make it through the primary. This could have been such an exciting and innovative time for the Family Life Advisory Committee to explore curricular aids, if it weren’t for the ENI Slate doing all the shouting, none of the listening or helping, and creating impediments to getting any actual advice from those parent volunteers.

P.S. That link above about the way these maniacs behaved at The FLAC meeting is worth reading (Washington Post); this Yokel hadn’t realized that Dan Cox accused Brad Young of preparing children for chemical castration! It is frankly astonishing that anyone believes anything these people say. A Who’s Who of Who not to Vote For: Cindy Rose, Olivia Angolia, and Nancy Allen.

Looks like we have to be the memory keeper of this county!

We will not allow candidates to gaslight the voters!

Seems like the common theme of some of Republican candidates is to pretend they are much more moderate than they actually are. This being Maryland, some of these folks are smart enough to realize that if they want to win an election around these parts they have to clean up their act! But oh no, no, no… we won’t let that happen.

No way!

OFFENDER #1 : MICHAEL (WHO NOW PREFERS MIKE) HOUGH!

An alert reader let us know that Hough recently cleaned up his social media in an attempt to get everyone to buy into the farcical notion that he’s some kind of friendly moderate. WRONG! Let us submit these facts to a candid world:

He so very bravely posted his NRA rug the day after a bunch of children were shot at Marjorie Douglass High School!
He sponsored a bill to ban abortions at the time of conception. (Notice Parrott’s name on there because he’s running for Congress)
No comment needed.
He’s the Chief of Staff (Cindy thinks this means secretary, but. more on that later) for a WV ethics violating carpet-bagger who posts things like that.

And he has a very questionable record in the Maryland General Assembly. Check out this article we previously wrote about him:

It’s a real treat!

OFFENDER #2: DAN COX

Now Dan doesn’t consistently keep his crazy tucked in, after all he’s full MAGA and regulating emotions is not their strong suit. However, he’s been trying ,through his social media, to play the part of a normal person who cares about everyday Marylanders. What a load of:

Let us present the following for the record:

Mr. Homeschooler literally has no idea what goes on in public schools. His only goal would be to destroy them.
Foreign policy is not his forte.
MAGA may be added to DSM-6 when it is released.

Let’s not forget he was condemned for comparing the expansion of mental health services to the Holocaust on Holocaust Remembrance Day:

https://www.jcouncil.org/statements/jewish-community-outraged-maryland-state-delegates-offensive-remarks-holocaust

And finally take some time to read all we’ve written about him over the years, it’s really shocking he’s gotten as far as he has.

https://fredericklocalyokel.com/?s=cox

OFFENDER #3: CINDY ROSE

Now, unlike the other two, Cindy really doesn’t care about her image, facts, reliability, stability, intelligence, data, success…sorry we got off track. But she did delete something recently that we immediately called her out on Facebook for, and we are not going to let this one go:

In case you missed the discussion on her post, she claimed the Chief of Staff of the FCPS legal department is a secretary. The same job title that Michael Hough holds.

Let’s see what else the hate slate has been up to since it isn’t knocking on doors or reaching out to voters.

These press releases are always a real treat for us! Not only are they always a grammatical mess, they also exemplify the term “hand the idiot the microphone”. We encourage people to call Mark since they put his number out.

Here’s another recent gem:

We all know who needs to stay away from our kids!
No where on this page!

Make sure to tell all of your friends and neighbors about these folks. We need to remember that not everyone pays as much attention to what goes on around here as we do. Having any of these folks sully our elective offices would be disastrous for our state and our county.

Hail Mary, let’s talk about the primary!

It’s been so busy here at Yokel headquarters!

All the votes from the primary election are in and now the work begins! We knocked out the entire 2nd rate hate slate, but the spirit of John Wilkes Booth still runs through 3/4ths of the OG hate slate.

He was useless just like Cindy, Nancy, and Olivia would be on the school board.
We do have to say we liked that David Brooks knocked Mark Joannides down a notch, because someone needed to! We all need to regroup now and make sure that 4 sane candidates make it up. For we cannot afford to have one of these backwards talkers on our precious school board.

Something is askew in District 5! Instead of the local Republikkins letting team normal, in the form of Michael Blue, continue on they put forth someone who thinks that Kirby is a hero.

The lack of judgement is astounding. Guess Michael Blue didn’t stroke Kirby’s ego well enough so he put this kid’s signs all over his trucks. And look at precious little Billy. I wonder how Pence feels about his name on that shirt these days.

Karl Bickel won the Democratic nod for what we call the High Sheriff around these parts. We’ve written quite a bit about the current High Sheriff, but feel free to revisit here.

It’s past time for this one to go!

Jessica will go up against the Chief of Staff for carpet bagger Alex Mooney who is currently under investigation for various ethics violations. We recently told the tale of how he didn’t want to raise the teenage marriage rate to 17 because he still believes in child brides. So you know we all need to rally behind Jessica on this one.

Never forget that he posted this the day after the Marjorie Stoneman Douglass shooting.

Our two Frederick County GOP gubernatorial candidates faced off with the dumbest one winning. From this concession post, we don’t think that Kelly is going to be backing him in the general!

He who must not be named! Keep an eye on our social media for every Monday we will post a new Dan Cox article from our extensive archives.

There’s of course many more races, and we promise to get to them. We must keep up our momentum and make sure that we keep our county government both sane and functional!

Let’s revisit our election reporting!!!

Make sure you do your research!

In light of Heather Fletcher’s national news making act of stealing the pronoun pins and checking out all the PRIDE display books from the Brunswick library, we’ve been getting quite a few inquiries as to which candidates should be avoided. This post will revisit some of our election posts (focused heavily on the school board) to get everyone up to speed!

In our most recent post, we did a deep dive to see how our local candidates feel about gun control in the wake of the shootings at Udvale.

We also put out the call for all Independent voters to make their way to the polls this primary season because the Board of Education primary race is open to ALL voters. You’ll also see your Yokel picks for this race!

Don’t let Tony Chmelik back into our county government. Period.

We also took a minute to remind everyone why Michael Hough would be a horrible choice for our next county executive.

Cindy’s hate slate doesn’t believe racism is a thing. Did we just have to type that sentence?

The national phenomenon of accusing teachers of being sexual groomers has made it to our fine county by the very unfine candidates listed below:

Cindy Rose

Mark Joannides

Olivia Angolia

Nancy Allen

Tiffany Nobel

Ashley Nieves

Heather Fletcher

April Montgomery

Read more about this in the posts below:

We’ll end our post with a primer we wrote back in March:

Please share this information far and wide. We need to make sure our school board and county governments remain sane and functional institutions. And don’t forget to check into our Facebook page as we frequently share what we find on our local characters.

Sound the alarm: be sure *independent & unaffiliated* voters know to vote in the primary July 19, 2022 (early voting the 7th – 14th)

Oy vey. We are counting on you all to avert a crisis. Many thanks to our alert readers! We frequently have little birds who let us know things (our Facebook inbox is the best way) and today’s news was somewhat alarming.

We heard that allegedly normal people are being convinced to believe insane things are happening in our schools! It is truly a wonder to behold the things people will believe these days. Whether it is that the school system is grooming children and teaching them to be racist, JFK Jr is alive (AND also is an UberMAGA DJT fan!!!!), or that the power grid of Washington D.C. is powered by aborted fetuses, it seems like it is shockingly easy to override the bullshit meters of the general population these days.

Make it stop.

We are asking everyone to help spread the word that teaching our kids everyone can aspire to become a tradesperson, engineer, or hairdresser is a good thing; it’s literally the opposite of grooming to inform them that their parts covered by bathing suits aren’t parts other people should be fiddling with, and learning accurate history is not a guilt trip but a path to a better future! P.S.: this disgusting degenerate has been detained for sexually abusing a child who is a family member in case you needed a reason why there is actually age appropriate sex education for elementary schoolers–it’s so they know how to report when they are being abused!

The info is in the title of this piece, but please we are begging you to share it with your friends and with young voters who may not have a lot of election experience but really do care about the future of their community. All registered voters can vote in the primary for the nonpartisan races. The Board of Education race is nonpartisan. In a manner of speaking, anyway. You have your “Hate Slate Classic” and your “Second Rate Hate Slate,” all of whom are crossed out for obvious reasons. We had left “The Normies” who are not making up apocalyptic fictions about the school system in order to get elected. There are stars by the Apple Ballot endorsed candidates, who we also feel warm to, but we’ve recently crossed off a couple more candidates since we last shared this, due to finding little to no information about them available at this late date in the election cycle.

We realize 7 gajillion people are running, so hopefully this makes it easier on you. We also have an entire canon of work about Cindy Rose (to find it use the search feature on the blog), since she is constantly running for BOE with such “well-reasoned” notions as “Click, Clack, Moo” should be a banned book. What is astonishing is that other people have voluntarily hitched their wagons balloons to this star anvil.

The primary takes place on July 19th–with early voting in place from the 7th – 14th. This means voters who are not engaged with the political organizations may not be hearing about these issues, but they do have a say about which of the candidates advance to the general election. Locations and other useful tedium is in the links. Make a plan to vote! The deadline for registration ahead of the primary is June 22, 2022. Register to vote here (you aren’t allowed to do this for other people; if you know someone who needs help with online technology offer to sit with them).

Who NOT to put on the school board. Your Yokel voter primer!

This is how things will be if we let these folks onto the school board.

We know there’s a lot going on in the world today.

Amongst the chaos that is the world today, we still need to remember how important it is to vote smartly when it comes to our local affairs. The school board election may not seem that important, but it is gravely important. The school board helps determine what is taught, what books are used, which books are banned, and regulations that determine what kind of treatment and rights students and staff have in public school buildings. They literally help shape our children’s future. What’s more important than that?

If you’ve been a frequent reader, you know we aren’t a fan of Cindy Rose. (If you are new click this link for more info). We’ll touch on her and her slate, but here’s a couple of more pieces of evidence as to why her logic “skills” would not be a welcome addition to our school board:

This morning Cindy and her slate (who we will discuss soon) decided to pen an LTE to the Frederick News Post about why the search for the new superintendent should wait until after the next election. Here’s our favorite part:

On second thought, maybe that’s exactly why they are in a hurry? What better way to sabotage a joyful, hope-filled, student-focused and traditional vision for Frederick County’s students, parents and teachers than to saddle them with a progressive superintendent who may not be in lock-step with a new majority’s vision?

And so do the rest of us!

And this is all so rich coming from a group of people who belong to a party that justified Mitch McConnell’s blocking Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court while rushing through one in the last few weeks of Trump’s administration.

This LTE reminded us that we need to get to the rest of the candidates. We did some research, and since we adhere to the philosophy of letting people show us who they are (and then believing it), we will let their words and pictures speak for themselves.

We’ll begin with the rest of Cindy’s new hate slate

First up, homeschool parent Mark Joannides:

The good of humanity? Locking who up?
And you received your medical degree from where? Why should we believe you?!

We know this is a lot to take in, but there’s more…

Nancy Allen, who doesn’t appear to have had any interaction with the FCPS until now also has some thoughts:

And the last one to grace Cindy’s bandwagon, Olivia Angolia, whose qualifications are that she used to be a student:

Nope!
The current nominee is very qualified, morons.

https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/ivermectin-ineffective-preventing-severe-covid-19-study-2022-02-18/

Have you caught the theme with these folks?

There’s still three more to go. The next on our list is the first defector from Cindy’s slate, Ashley Nieves. Let’s visit what she thought was suitable to mail out to Frederick County voters:

Next up are two candidates that are out walking around with Ashley. The first one is Tiffany Noble a person who associates with a Florida based group, Moms for Liberty. The local chapter of this group posted a few things asking all “Mama Bears” to join their call.

We feel the need to call out this Mama Bear tripe. All of your Lady Yokels are moms. We all feel the need to stand up for our kids when necessary, but more importantly teach them to advocate for themselves. This Mama Bear vibe gives the impression that my kid’s needs are more important than yours. It’s aggressive, combative, and serves no real purpose other than to make someone feel as though they are being a good parent. The rest of us are not impressed.

Let’s leave the Mama Bear stuff with the bears

Tiffany Noble is our Moms for “Liberty” candidate. Here’s her philosophy:

Not one? We know for sure that isn’t true. So, our first introduction to her is a lie. And how is it a good look to call teachers and staff bullies? Good luck with that sista!
Another statement with no proof!

Last one on our list (for now) is April Montgomery:

We are going to zoom in on the next screenshot so you can really see how she put a Confederate flag collar on her dog. And yes, that date stamp is 2021, not 1921.
We don’t even know what to say about this.

We’ll leave you with a post she made this morning to round it all out:

Trust people when they show you who they are. We’ve provided commentary, but edited nothing.

Don’t worry, happy fun time post of who you should trust your children’s future to is on the way soon!

Cindy Rose’s Facebook posts….a response in memes.

This year Cindy Rose and friends are attempting to pull off a coup against our local school board. It’s her fourth time trying, and the fourth time we must send her packing. You won’t enjoy her latest posts, but hopefully you’ll enjoy our memes.

Maybe someone needs a subscription to Hulu so she can watch Dopesick. We would suggest reading the book, but we don’t want to risk her writing to the BOE again to ban the book for any “unsavory content”.
Do your research Cindy!

Cindy thinks she can override the Constitution! How neat! And we must point out how irritating it is to see school board candidates who can’t spell worth a damn.
No maybe about it!
Cindy’s political instincts are as bad as Dan’s!
At least they should, but alas!

We don’t even want to know what she did two days after the insurrection!

So very brave!

What does this even mean? We only listen to medical advice from people who live within the borders of our county?

We sure have!
People who just make some stuff up should not expect to be taken seriously, especially if they sincerely believe it while disregarding empirical evidence. (And that looks like someone to keep an eye on, District 2 folks!)
Seriously!
Hopefully Big Bird still triggers them!

This is the first of many posts about the BOE race this year. We know many aren’t happy with the current board, and with good reason! However, we can’t make it worse. And this one and her ilk will absolutely make it worse. Let’s all encourage our capable friends and neighbors to run this year! We need sane, thoughtful people on the board. Not this hot mess!

How we suffer for our art!

Well, it does make our job easier when she does!

With the next school board election over a year away, we are going to have to pace ourselves on our reporting of Cindy et al. But man oh man, is there a lot of material to work with here! And since they are starting early, we need to as well if not to only shine a light on the incompetence, but also to save ourselves from going down another local Trumpy hole.

Here’s the latest list of OH MY GOD IS SHE EVEN BEING SERIOUS RIGHT NOW?!

Should people who can’t spell quarantine be allowed to speak of quarantine? And she ignores all scientific studies so how are we to prove it? Unmask the kids and see what happens? Theraputic jab? What is the meaning of the word theraputic?

Time for the next bit of bad comedy:

Let us bankrupt the school system by making them fight off frivolous lawsuits in order to put forth our misunderstandings of how things work! Maybe Insurrectionist Dan Cox can copy and paste a useless lawsuit for her.
Doesn’t big pharma make Ivermectin? Because she supports using that!
OMG! Everyone knew they were doing this! This is not new! Wow! Wow! Wow!

Her new slate has a very leading/misleading survey going on which would be laughable if it wasn’t so scary. You can take a look here for the full text, (go ahead and fill it out for them if you’ve got some time on your hands!) but we’ll take you on a little tour:

And really that is what this is all about. These folks, except for Cindy, do not have kids in our school system. One of them homeschooled their children and has no interaction at all with FCPS except for showing up at public comment lately unmasked! They don’t care about public education, teachers, or kids. Their goal is to dismantle and sow discord. So, even if you have been dissatisfied with the board lately, this is not the ship to correct the course.

We don’t want to end up here folks! But that’s exactly where these people will take us.

Next up, we’ll start following the money to see who is funding our new slate!

Is the 4th time a charm? Cindy Rose sure hopes so!

The tenacity of some folks!

Thrice loser, Cindy Rose, is hoping all this fraudulent election stuff (Trump is going to be President again don’t ya know!), harmful vaccines, unhealthy kid muzzles, and teaching people about the actual history of the U.S.A. is finally going to be her ticket to a place on the board.

No, it isn’t!

If you are new around here, or just need a good old-fashioned refresher, click on our very detailed reporting on this lady’s thought process. Beware, you are going to go to some pretty dark places. Pay special attention to her fear mongering regarding the sex ed curriculum. You’ll be tickled to find out that teaching kids about sex is akin to disrespecting all the little girls! #FACTS!

After hearing this ridiculous news, we decided to take a look at her Facebook page to see if things had gotten any better since the last time we had to write about her. It has gotten unequivocally worse:

We are sure Biden is shaking in his boots.
Imagine this one making any regulations about social studies curriculum!
PLEEEAAAASSSEEE!!!
Glad to see she’s finding common ground with the Democrat Socialist Anarchists! We didn’t even know that was a thing! Way to fit all those buzzwords into one post Cindy!

But seriously folks, this woman would rather your kids fall victim to a very transmittable variant of this virus just so she doesn’t have to admit she was so very wrong. This is probably propaganda to Cindy, but we are going to drop it here anyway:

https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/delta-variant-more-dangerous-children-growing-number-kids-are-very-n1276035

Of course we are going to have more to say about her in the upcoming months, as we will also cover her new fave gubernatorial candidate (Poor Robin Ficker) Dan Cox. (Go ahead and click on his name for some good stuff!)

Stay vigilant folks! Our school system doesn’t need this kind of nonsense.

Let’s not let the pearl clutchers prevent our children from learning the truth about history.

Oh, grow up!

You’ve probably been living under a slimy rock if you haven’t heard of the newest American culture war: The argument over whether or not to teach Critical Race Theory. If you aren’t familiar with the topic, as many people who are protesting it don’t seem to be, take a look at this definition from a recent Education Weekly article:

“Critical race theory is an academic concept that is more than 40 years old. The core idea is that racism is a social construct, and that it is not merely the product of individual bias or prejudice, but also something embedded in legal systems and policies.The basic tenets of critical race theory, or CRT, emerged out of a framework for legal analysis in the late 1970s and early 1980s created by legal scholars Derrick Bell, Kimberlé Crenshaw, and Richard Delgado, among others. A good example is when, in the 1930s, government officials literally drew lines around areas deemed poor financial risks, often explicitly due to the racial composition of inhabitants. Banks subsequently refused to offer mortgages to Black people in those areas.”

The 1619 Project offers a lot of great viewpoints on our history and if you take the time to really invest in becoming a more educated and thoughtful person, you may become pretty angry at the gaps in your own education. Let’s look at an example of how white washed our history was/is by exploring a Washington Post Magazine article about a Confederate re-enactor which includes some very interesting passages from the main subject of the article’s Junior High School textbook:

“We’re not claiming bad things never happened,” he finally said, after pocketing his rescue inhaler, “but it wasn’t all whippings and killings, either.” This echoed a lesson from the eighth grade, page 401, about Harriet Beecher Stowe’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” The 1852 abolitionist novel “described scenes of horrible cruelty which were supposed to have grown out of slavery,” the textbook says. “Southern people knew that the [novel] gave a false picture. A Richmond magazine said that it was wicked for Mrs. Stowe to use her imagination in such a bad way.”

With most able-bodied white men off fighting, the authors wrote, “the Negroes could easily have run away.” Yet they “remained loyal to their white mistresses even after President Lincoln promised in his Emancipation Proclamation that the slaves would be freed.” The historic decree — which isn’t discussed anywhere else in the book — was issued after 21 months of war. Frank said he will argue to his “dying breath” that it was conceived as an appeal to anti-slavery sentiment in the European public, to discourage England and France from recognizing the Confederacy.

This year was the 100 year anniversary of Tulsa race massacre. Not until we were much older did your Lady Yokels learn of this massacre, and not until this very year did we learn that Black houses and businesses were destroyed by airplanes using incendiary devices! How is it acceptable that this information was withheld (because people made deliberate decisions to keep this incident and other important events out of our classrooms) and how can we allow it to continue? We’ve allowed generations of Americans to grow up with half truths and a perception of a rose-colored past…and it shows! The All Lives Matter folks aren’t all acting out of menace and racism, they literally do not know the history of their country because the systemic racism in this country hid it from them. To everyone’s detriment!

These anti-critical race theorists would like you to believe that teaching the truth about American history is going to make white children feel bad about themselves and to that we say:

Absolute trash!

First of all, if young people of color have to experience racism, and unfortunately they still do, then white children can learn about the origins of it. There’s a great book by a former West Point historian, Ty Seidule, called “Robert E Lee and Me.” Not only does the author explore his own past of growing up in Virginia and learning to worship Robert E. Lee, he also comes to the conclusion that the Lost Cause narrative led not only to the continued oppression of black people, but also left the white people ignorant of their own country’s history. One of the best arguments the author makes for whites learning the truth about our history is the cotton candy analogy.

 It’s okay to be uncomfortable. But it’s worse to avert your eyes and not deal with it. We can deal with it. We Americans aren’t made out of cotton candy. We defeated the Germans and liberated the concentration camps. We put an end to chattel slavery. You know, we can deal with the harsh truth of the past and get better. But if we don’t deal with it, we’re going to continue to be abused by the past, rather than be able to use the past to make a more just and equal society.

We can take the truth, we should demand the truth, and we need to make sure our children learn the truth. The reason we need to be aware of this today is because the ones who believe we are made of cotton candy will try to take over the school board next year. Just look at what is happening across the river in Virginia. We all need to keep in mind the points made in this Slate article about not allowing this topic to become the next culture war in these here parts. The noodley appendage is already freaking out and getting people riled up over this topic. And why is it that these people always insist in showing us just how important it is to have these topics taught in school?

Sigh, if only critical thinking had been taught in school when she was a student a lot of trouble would have been saved for all of us!
Truth!

Let’s all continue to educate ourselves and insist on a proper education for our children, so maybe just maybe we can honestly reckon with our past and allow ourselves to make some real progress in this country. Then, and only then, will this be a country in which everyone has the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We can’t let these people take us backwards.

We will leave you will this video of our current Chief of Staff answering a very ignorant question from sleaze ball Congressman (come on Florida!) Matt Gaetz:

https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2021/06/23/general-mark-milley-critical-race-theory-matt-gaetz-vpx.cnn
