Our children are not chattel, by Michelle Malkin

COLORADO SPRINGS — They confessed. Now, they believe they can escape with it.

3 weeks back, I reported to you on the dreadful case of 6th-grade trainee Rylee M., who was pressed by instructors at Chinook Path Intermediate school to seal her mask to her face with thick blue painters’ tape. Another schoolmate stepped forward to explain how those instructors would patrol their class for lawbreakers while twirling the tape rolls around their wrists.

Doubters implicated the kids of making the story and of willingly putting the tape on themselves. Others, consisting of the Colorado Springs Cops Department school resource officer stationed at Chinook Path, baselessly dismissed the occurrence as a trick dedicated by an instructor in “jest.” Gaslighters in the school district and their advocates misleadingly rejected that instructors used the tape straight to victims’ faces–something Rylee and her mommy never ever declared. By mischaracterizing the real accusations, public school propagandists deflected attention from the brazen abuse of authority worked out by teachers who provided de facto demands that kids comply with their instruction to utilize the tape handed to them. Otherwise.

On Monday, after the district’s three-week-long internal examination, Chinook Path Intermediate school primary Tom Andrew verified in a conference with Rylee’s mommy, Stephanie M., that instructors had actually undoubtedly directed trainees to attach a mask to their face with tape”—a terrible step that just sadists, not sane public health supporters, might accept. Additionally, the unfazed principal blandly acknowledged, “yes,” the “students thought they were compelled to follow through” on the instructors’ “requests” (to choke themselves off).

“In short,” the principal told Rylee’s mom in his sing-song scripted voice, “district policies and procedures were broken,” “trust and respect” were “broken,” and “poor decisions” were made. Now, the principal told Stephanie M., it’s time “to move this forward” after “admitting our mistake” and “trust” the administration. The abusers will remain in the classroom with vulnerable 11- and 12-year-olds; any disciplinary measures will be kept “confidential;” and brave Rylee, who has been harassed over the incident, will now be enrolled in online school to keep her safe from the mask bondage bullies.


“It was never our intent,” the anonymous group of “Team 642” tape torturers wrote in a crappy little note to parents handed out Monday night at a meeting closed to the public, “to cause anxiety, fear, confusion, or physical or emotional harm.” Never mind that these petty tyrants wrought all of the above and will be shielded from any transparent punishment. “We look forward to returning to normal and continuing along this learning journey with your family,” the instructors (none of whom have reached out to Rylee or her mom directly) cheerily chirped.

Elitist privilege means always pretending to say you’re sorry without ever suffering consequences for wrongdoing.

Darcy Schoening, parent advocate and Town of Monument Board of Trustees member, agrees. She believes “the teachers responsible for this behavior should be fired. Their names should be released. Parents have the right to know WHO is abusing their kids. Protecting the teachers’ identities and disciplinary actions is a slap in the face to parents.”


“It’s sickening to me,” Stephanie lamented, as the primary echoed the educrats’ desire to get back out of the public spotlight and “resume normalcy.” She’s not going to let it drop. “I am not going to be quiet,” the work-at-home mom of three young daughters informed KVOR-AM 740 radio talk show hostRichard Randall this week. “Plenty of parents are ready to step up for their kids.” No doubt about it. The Election Day revolt against K-12 control freaks just demonstrated that parents across the country from Loudon County, Va., to El Paso County, Co., to Los Angeles County, Calif., will not let COVID-era abnormalities hijack their children’s health and freedom.

With Justice Department goons and local cops treating parents protesting at school board meetings like criminals, we know we can’t rely on law enforcement to side with sovereignty-defenders over the State. Remember: Stephanie M. immediately contacted the Colorado Springs Police Department to report the abuse as soon as her daughter informed her what happened. They blew her off. Instead, according to creepy public records files I obtained last week, at least three members of the CSPD’s Metropolitan Narcotics, and Intelligence Division/Stratetic Information Center passed around my Twitter and Gab posts about Rylee’s case to several CSPD command staff and other individuals whose names were redacted. A CSPD “Intelligence Unit” detective made note of my “2 million (yes, 2 million) Twitter followers” (so what?) and a sergeant falsely claimed I was aware of protest plans at the school (I heard no such information until after administrators shut down the school on Oct. 25 amid an international maelstrom of public scrutiny and press coverage–and no such protest ever occurred).

[These are my Gab and Twitter posts, which the district redacted when it released public records to a requestor.]

It’s getting impossible to “back the blue” when they stand down as Antifa and Black Lives Matter attack you for defending law and order, kneel before the altar of George Floyd, enforce junk-science-based COVID tyranny lining the pockets of Big Pharma and Big Government, and spy on you for standing up for moms and dads fighting educational malpractice. Teach your kids well.
