We are going to have to deal with this issue for quite some time since FCPS had to form a committee over her nonsense. Let’s hope that she and her ilk can learn the meaning of the word pornography. We won’t hold our breaths.
3 out of 4 isn’t bad! However, we are going to have to teach some folks in our community that we don’t just vote for the first name on the ballot just because we chose to remain uninformed about the election!
Our post reminding independent and unaffiliated voters made the number 8 spot on our list. We always need to remind our unaffiliated friends that they can vote in the BOE primary election, and it’s important that they do so!
This post concerned the absolutely appalling behavior that some of our community members (You know Cindy was involved) showed at a Family Life Advisory meeting. We always need to be careful of people who can’t comprehend what they read, or worse yet, don’t read and then make things up to purposefully enflame people.
Tony Chmelik, one of your LadyYokel’s least favorite council members, tried to run for at at-large seat and failed. Hopefully this blast from the past reminded a few folks why we didn’t want him the last time around and prevented him from getting back on this time!
This was truly one of the worst public meetings we have ever had the displeasure of watching. And this is coming from a group of ladies that watched every single county council meeting for the long 4 years that Billy Shreve, Kirby Delauter, and Tony Chmelik were on that board. Cindy really can bring out the worst in people.
Thank goodness we kept Cindy and two of her minions off the board, plus the entire 2nd rate hate slate! We are sure we will see some of them back again, but at least we have the next two years to take a nice deep breath!
We wish all of our Local Yokel fans a wonderful holiday season and a peaceful 2023!
Before we get into the final results we need to address some cray cray we’ve seen regarding the election count. After deliberating at Yokel headquarters for a bit, we are convinced that the main problem is a good portion of Americans don’t understand how elections work. One of our favorite/crazy comments came from someone who stated that she couldn’t understand how Dan Cox won the 1st election and then lost the 2nd. Must be fraud! Not the fact that primary elections are party centered and who wins the primary does not have the assurance of winning the general election! If that were true we would have two winners in the governor race!
The Frederick News Post comments on Facebook are also a real treat. We have some folks positing that since the count is still going on then it must be all the Democrats just harvesting all those fake ballots!
Just because your orange menace ruined mail in voting for you doesn’t mean the rest of us bought into it. Republicans just hate when people are allowed convenient ways to vote, because they know that the more people allowed to vote the harder it is for them to win. NOT FRAUD. This Lady Yokel just got her notification that her mail in ballot was just counted and if these people had their way they would just be fine and dandy with disenfranchising me- Especially Cindy!
Now for the final election results!
Jessica will be the next County Executive and Renee Knapp and Brad Young will be our At-Large representatives on the next council!
So thankful that we don’t have to worry about Hough and Chemlik, who recently posted conspiracy thoughts about Nancy Pelosi’s husband on his campaign Facebook page, destroying our county!
Mostly good news for our council races.Hopefully Mason will behave himself and grow.
And for the race we’ve been paying the most attention to, the Board of Ed race:
We would have really liked to have seen Ysela make it, and it seems like we’ll have to do another primer about not clicking on the first name if you don’t know who to vote for. But alas, this is what we have to live with for now. At least the January 6th insurrectionist and Cindy didn’t make it!
It’s time for your Lady Yokels to take a bit of a rest. Thank you to all who voted and have been paying attention!
Hey y’all. We are as sick of writing about Cindy as many of you are of hearing about her. However, we would be remiss if we didn’t pay a little more attention to her pornography charges regarding the books she’s demanding be removed from FCPS libraries.
First of all, it’s important to point out that none of these books are part of the curriculum. They are in the library for students who are interested in expanding their knowledge or vocabulary. Two things that this Education Not Indoctrination slate finds very offensive.
Let’s begin by defining pornography by way of the good old Webster’s dictionary:
Definition of pornography
1: the depiction of erotic behavior (as in pictures or writing) intended to cause sexual excitement
2: material (such as books or a photograph) that depicts erotic behavior and is intended to cause sexual excitement
ICYMI, click here to read and watch the “performance art” Cindy put on at last week’s meeting. What we are going to do next is delve a little deeper into the two books she claims are pornographic and sexualizing our children. Please keep the above definition in mind.
1st book: Push by Sapphire. (Which was made into the movie Precious). Here’s a review by the Literary Phoenix:
Precious Jones, an illiterate sixteen-year-old, has up until now been invisible: invisible to the father who rapes her and the mother who batters her and to the authorities who dismiss her as just one more of Harlem’s casualties. But when Precious, pregnant with a second child by her father, meets a determined and highly radical teacher, we follow her on a journey of education and enlightenment as Precious learns not only how to write about her life, but how to make it her own for the first time.
What Cindy misconstrues (misconstruing things is her favorite) as pornography is a tragic rape, meant to show the reader real trauma the author endured. It is a terrible experience that she is eventually able to overcome through the help of a teacher. (Maybe this is the part that bothers Cindy? Never mind, she didn’t read it…). It is not, as the definition of pornography above shows, meant to sexually excite, nor is the intent to sexualize children.
2nd Book- Sold by Patricia McCormick. Here’s a summary from the website SparksNotes:
Sold is a contemporary YA novel by American writer Patricia McCormick, published in 2006. Written in short vignettes, Sold tells the story of thirteen-year-old Lakshmi, a poor but happy girl living with her family in a mountain hut in Nepal. When a Himalayan monsoon washes away her family’s crops, Lakshmi must find a job to support her family. On the advice of a stranger, she goes to India to stay at a ‘Happiness House’, but once there finds she has been tricked, and sold into prostitution. Mumtaz, the cruel woman who runs the brothel, tells Lakshmi she is now trapped until she can pay off her family’s debts. Mumtaz finds a way to cheat Lakshmi of even her small earnings, ensuring Lakshmi will be in her service for a long time. Despite the horrors of her life, Lakshmi finds a way to survive through friendships with other girls in the house and the hope that one day she will be able to escape. Sold was a National Book Award Finalist for Young People’s Literature in 2006.
This book is a fictionalized account, based on real stories, of what happens to many girls who are sold into sex slavery in Asia. It also tells the story of a young woman who is able to overcome absolute terror and reclaim her life. Again, this is not the definition of pornography.
So, those of you so shocked by her reading out of context vignettes of these books in an incredibly poor attempt to prove that the school system is offering pornography to kids need to wake up. These books, while graphic, are not pornographic. They are dealing with the very real issues of incest and human trafficking. (Side note: the only time Cindy was inspired to speak out against human trafficking is when it was a part of the Q conspiracies). These are stories of redemption and hope. If you don’t want your high schooler exposed to these books, then pay attention to what they are reading and what they bring home from school. We definitely do not need someone who hasn’t read any of these books AND previously demanded Click Clack Moo not be used in elementary school anywhere near our children.
Chicken Little, AKA Cindy Rose, showed up at Wednesday night’s BOE meeting–with handouts! “What’s on those papers,” you may ask. A list of over 300 books she wants removed. She tells the board that it’s bad enough you’ve taught our kids that gender is a social construct and all the horrible “CRT,” (more commonly recognized by rational people as non ethnocentric history), but now she says the board is sexualizing our children.
She warns the parents in the room to get their kids out because she’s going to make the most uncomfortable public comment she’s ever made…and she’s made a lot!
She reads two very sexually graphic passages from two books (she previously mentions that some of the books on her list are unacceptable because they contain vulgar language), one that she claims is in middle school and another that she doesn’t identify the grade level, but it’s high school.(It’s from the book PUSH which is a true story that was made into a major blockbuster.) It’s kind of funny to hear her read this stuff because it is making her squirm.
She’s also upset that kids(high schoolers) can read about Jeffrey Dahmer and other things that have happened in real life. She demands that the board remove all 360 books on her list by December. And she will be at the Curriculum and Instruction meeting over library books and they better damn well have an explanation on how each and every book got on that list and what they are going to do make sure that anything that violates Cindy’s sense of morality never makes it to a bookshelf again.
And let us remind you that her sense of morality was violated by this book:
Yes folks, she complained to the school system about Click, Clack, Moo! We are asking that one of board members send us that list!!! Please, please send us that list!
Don’t be fooled by this woman, she found the most alarming passages she could, and then read them out of context just to get everyone all riled up. (I mean this woman needs a job, not on the BOE, but something to keep herself nice and busy!) Just because a book is challenging to her exclusionary white Christian heterosexual world-view does not make it bad.
And this isn’t her first time trying to ban books, read here for more.
“I found breaking with my party to be a painful but liberating experience, and she [Liz Cheney] might, too. Leaving the GOP made me realize how much I missed by looking at the world through a partisan lens. In particular, I was willfully blind to what the Republican Party had become long before Trump came along. The racism, the nativism, the hostility to science, the conspiracy-mongering, the cruelty, the willingness to win at all costs: None of it is new. Trump did not invent these malign trends. He merely accelerated them.”
Cindy is an example of this acceleration. And an accelerant. Don’t let her burn it all down.
You may have caught our piece a few weeks back concerning the Nymphs and Satyrs web guy the ENISes are using. He’s someone we think it is prudent to keep a watchful eye on, and he has fleshed out his own site full of content to gawk at. It’s entirely predictable that the ENISes are aligned with his “traditional roles and machismo, the men have the balls and they shall rule the world” agenda. Did we mention that we are acquainted, so this isn’t just supposition? We have had the displeasure of direct exposure to this.
Today the ENISes are sharing Gordo’s personal content because it flatters them. Sort of. They think so, anyway. They actually look pretty insane, per usual, with the continued rambling about the pronouns and whatnot, but when a guy who self-applies the term “gordo” shows them the love (Sir, this is an Arby’s; take your horsey sauce and kindly trot away) they get all amped up and forget to look around and see what exactly it means to be endorsed by a person like this…and that is because this is what they are like, too.
Here’s an excerpt from the above piece:
Some people in the County say that the ENI slate wants to return FCPS to the days when LGBTQ students were harassed and threatened. From what I saw in school, I’m not sure those days ever existed. When I was at Walkersville Middle in the late 1970s, one of my male classmates wore pom-poms on his skates at its skating parties, and while he was pretty darn swishy, nobody much cared. Later, when I was at WHS, there was an upperclassman whose classmates all knew was gay, but none of them cared. He was accepted as one of the gang.
What? This sounds bananas, and we all know that back when people who are now in their late fifties were in school that there was almost no such thing as an out and accepted gay person. This is 100% clear from the fact that the paragraph above is actually him stereotyping people he perceived as different, and calling a person “swishy” is approaching inventing a new slur.
Also, does having attended Walkersville schools 40ish years ago mean anything with regard to what is going on there today? We know some LGBTQ kiddoes who attend there, and no offense intended to Walkersville, but it is not their personal experience that it’s universally an accepting climate. Maybe if he got off his computer…anyway, you get the drift.
Alas, this is hardly the most abhorrent stuff on that website. In addition to being an expert in none of the things he is writing about, such as “ADHD Doesn’t Exist,” or “Our Misplaced Faith in Pharma,” he waxes poetic about traditional gender roles. This is some mind-blowingly reactionary garbage. And what is really important about all of this is that all of these terrible people who manage to find each other and congeal their like minds into this ENIS movement…this is what they are like. Gross and weird.
In “Traditional Gender Roles are Hot” he talks about hetero couples as the “Breeders.” We are so sorry to continue here, because after you read this you will want to cleanse yourself with hand sanitizer, inside and out:
These days, to see traditional gender roles in full effect, you usually have to venture outside mainstream American culture as defined by the PMC (NB: this is shorthand for professional/managerial class), and take a look at the people it considers deviant: “macho” Latinos, committed Christians, and the kinky. It’s among these people that gender differences are most often acknowledged and celebrated.
In all of these subcultures, couples adhere to traditional gender roles, with the man leading on and off the dance floor, and the woman willingly following his lead. These roles are now catching on in the broader culture, in their more pronounced Dominant/submissive form. Why? Because they’re hot. There’s a reason that over 100 million copies of Fifty Shades of Grey have been sold, which one Frederick woman described this way:
“It wasn’t until I experienced a relationship that encouraged traditional gender roles that I truly found my place and myself. It was so freeing to be able to be feminine in the way I acted, and in the way I presented myself. And if I slipped up, I was lovingly reminded to be my true self—with a warmed up bottom, which always led to a hot time in bed.”
Look, we all know he doesn’t have an elusive girlfriend who no one in Frederick knows because she lives in Canada. He wrote that himself, yes? Also, he deigns to speak for people he has no credibility speaking for, and the words he puts into their mouths don’t really ring true. Just to take a glance at one example: It’s probably going to come as a shock that not all people’s kink is male dominant. Moving along; let’s not delve too deep into that topic in our local mommy blog. It’s terribly sad how trapped he is in his own limited worldview. This incel fantasy goes on in an incredibly insulting and presumptuous manner:
What do super-traditional roles look like? If you see a man in a restaurant ordering for his date while talking with her about her job, or see a woman at a party discussing politics while her man rests a possessive hand on her fanny, you’re getting the picture. More than likely, both couples will have a great time when they get home.
One of the things that is so unnerving about all the ENIses is that they give us the impression they are always thinking about other people’s bedroom lives. Normal people do not spend time thinking about random acquaintances sexual preferences and what they will do when they get home, or their acquaintances’ genitals, or their acquaintances’ kids’ genitals. It’s nasty. It’s creepy. It’s deviant.
One of the things society could stand to work on is a general failure to discuss that there is such a thing as healthy and respectful masculinity. It has allowed bad faith arguments pretending that when people discuss toxic masculinity that people are maligning all masculinity, but let’s keep in mind that “toxic” is an adjective that modifies “masculinity,” which is actually a completely neutral term and neither a criticism nor an exalted state of being. There is no magic about “balls dropping” making men into more competent authorities. Masculinity is just a basic noun. And let’s call that writing what it is. Unhealthy, abusive, toxic masculinity.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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:
And he has a very questionable record in the Maryland General Assembly. Check out this article we previously wrote about him:
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:
Let’s not forget he was condemned for comparing the expansion of mental health services to the Holocaust on Holocaust Remembrance Day:
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:
Let’s see what else the hate slate has been up to since it isn’t knocking on doors or reaching out to voters.
Here’s another recent gem:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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:
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.
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.
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).
