Metropolitan elitists are stuck in the middle of a catch-22.
They know parents don’t like schools teaching students Critical Race Theory, but the Left REALLY likes Critical Race Theory.
And one newspaper editor was just caught on tape revealing his true feelings about concerned parents.
A conservative group in Maine, Maine First Project, has caught the managing editor of the state’s supposed “paper of record” saying parents concerned about CRT in schools are “not credible.”
Maine First Project’s Director of Special Projects, Shawn McBreairty, has been one of the leaders in the pushback against CRT in Maine’s classrooms.
He’s been featured on shows like Tucker Carlson and the Ingraham Angle.
McBreairty reached out to the managing editor of the Bangor Daily News to ask about the biased coverage one of their reporters had displayed while covering multiple school board meetings.
In fact, McBreairty said he was never even contacted by the reporter, while she took pot shots against him in her articles.
McBreairty decided to call the reporter’s boss and record the conversation (Editor’s note: Maine is a single-party consent state).
The Bangor Daily News Managing Editor, Dan McLeod backed his reporter, saying it is not the paper’s practice to reach out to all parties in a story.
But McLeod was caught admitting something his allies on the Left had tried to keep secret.
On the call, multiple times, McLeod says he does NOT find parents concerned about their children’s education to be credible.
“I’m just not aware of it being a largely credible critique by a lot of people,” the supposed journalist said.
McLeod went further, not only admitting CRT was running rampant in school districts, but that it is totally appropriate.
“Critical Race Theory . . . books that have to do with multiculturalism, and other identities, SHOULD be taught in schools and I think that is different than whether Critical Race Theory is being, you know, indoctrinated,” McLeod posited.
McLeod’s response is indicative of what the Social Justice Snowflakes want to see happening in your child’s classroom.
They hate having to pretend CRT is not a real thing, when deep down they want to see more and more of it.
This is all part of the Left’s new strategy to stop denying CRT and start embracing it as necessary for “diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
In the meantime, according to McLeod, concerned parents will just have to try and get more credible.

An iconic magazine shows its true colors by cutting Melania Trump out of history
Fashion magazines are basically high school cliques all grown up.
Editors wield vast amounts of power and reshape culture to suit their every whim.
Now, an iconic magazine is showing its true colors by cutting Melania Trump out of history.
The subtle, yet ferocious jabs sent Trump’s way continue long after her husband left office.
When the New York City elite gathered for the Met Gala recently, Jill Biden was front and center being honored as first lady and invited to give a speech before the event at the opening of a Vogue art exhibit.
And bystanders were quick to note that a pre-Met Gala speech was yet another honor leftist elites were careful to avoid extending to Melania Trump.
As She Knows put it, “it was clear that the ongoing snub of former First Lady Melania Trump was still in full effect.”
Michelle Obama also enjoyed the honor of opening an exhibit ahead of New York City’s most important social event back in 2014.
But Melania apparently isn’t part of the grown-up version of the mean-girls clique.
Of course, it wasn’t always that way.
Back in 2005, Melania was featured on Vogue’s cover in what was advertised as an “exclusive” scoop on Donald Trump’s new bride.
That was before her husband stormed Washington, D.C. and started draining The Swamp.
Now, the former model turned first lady is persona non-grata.
The magazine’s “First Ladies in Vogue” feature conveniently cut Melania out of high fashion history.
“According to longtime Vogue staffer and former friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff in her tell-all book Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship With the First Lady, Melania was offered a feature interview, but there was no ‘guarantee that Melania would appear on the cover,’ she wrote. That may sound unfair to Trump fans, but not every First Lady was given the cover of the magazine,” She Knows reported.
Want to guess who did make the cover? Predictably, Jill Biden, Michelle Obama, and Hillary Clinton all made the cut.
Meanwhile, neither Laura Bush or Barbara Bush were given front cover real estate.
The partisan politics at play are obvious when you’re looking for them.
However, we can guess most of Vogue’s readers aren’t political scientists, but rather women looking for social signaling cues to help them gain acceptance in society.
The magazine’s snub of Republican women—especially a woman who has refused to go against her husband’s conservative take like Barbara and Laura Bush had a tendency to do—speaks loudly of what will and won’t be tolerated in society.

The Pulitzer Prize is about to get one ridiculous “woke” makeover
Radical leftism is spreading.
Fringe theories that were stranded in academia have escaped and infested the media.
Now, the Pulitzer Prize is about to get one ridiculous “woke” makeover.
The Democrats have been infiltrated by the radical Left.
Activists on the fringes have either purged moderate liberals from left-leaning power centers or cudgeled them into compliance.
Now, the radicals want control of the Pulitzer Prize.
The cult of DIE (diversity, inclusivity, and equity) has become a core belief on the Left.
So it’s no surprise that DIE has come for the establishment’s shiniest journalism prize.
Myriad leftist groups have called for news organizations to participate in a diversity survey conducted by the News Leaders Association (NLA).
The groups wrote a letter to Marjorie Miller, Administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes, that read, “We are appealing to The Pulitzer Prizes to help us improve the diversity and transparency in the news industry. On Tuesday, April 12, Nieman Lab reported that there was ‘crushing resistance’ by news organizations to participate in an annual diversity survey by the News Leaders Association. The group planned to have 2,500 organizations participate and in the end only 303 completed this important survey. That is unacceptable.”
This is the radicalistic playbook that has been effective for 50 years: attack an institution (particularly a liberal one) as bigoted in some fashion until it gives concessions.
The groups’ big ask is for diversity to be considered in awarding a Pulitzer Prize.
The letter continued, “We are asking your organization to promote this survey and reporting of demographic data by adding the following criteria to your selection process for Pulitzer Prizes in Journalism: In order to qualify for an award, organizations must provide proof of participation in the most recent general survey/census by the News Leaders Association or another industry reporting system that shares data publicly, effective 2024 (i.e., they must participate in this year’s data collection to be eligible for awards/funding in 2024).”
Hollywood already caved in this regard.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that soon films must meet diversity criteria in order to be considered for a Best Picture Oscar.
The Pulitzer Prize will have no choice but to meet the demands of the radical Left.
If not today, one day soon.
Liberals are defenseless against attacks from their left flank.
This tactic is how the radicals took over the Democratic Party.
NFL legend who teamed up with Ron DeSantis just put liars in the media to shame
Democrats are out to slander Ron DeSantis and anyone in his general vicinity.
Even people who are nonpartisan catch flak.
But one NFL legend who teamed up with DeSantis just put liars in the media to shame.
The Democrats need an archvillain, and Florida governor Ron DeSantis has been thrust into that role with Donald Trump off social media.
And anybody near DeSantis is the object of public smears and denunciations.
Hall of Famer NFL coach Tony Dungy found that out the hard way when he supported a piece of legislation proposed by DeSantis.
The Hill reported that, “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed a new law on Monday that will support programs that encourage involved fatherhood in the state. HB 7065, a $70 million initiative, will provide resources for educational and mentorship programs to help children, fathers and families in the state through the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) and the Department of Children and Families (DCF). DJJ will create a mentorship program to help at-risk youth through the new initiative, hosting various programs such as barbershop talks and fatherhood classes.”
Under typical circumstances, such a bill would not be controversial, but it seems that Democrats hate DeSantis more than they love government programs.
Dungy was instantly slandered by leftist journalists, but he stood his ground and pointed out that he supported a similar initiative when Barack Obama was president.
Dungy reposted an old Obama quote that read, “We know the statistics — that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools and 20 times more likely to end up in prison.”
2 days ago I spoke on behalf of a Florida bill that supports dads & families and it offended some people. 14 yrs ago Pres Obama said the same things almost verbatim. I’m assuming people were outraged at him too. I am serving the Lord so I’ll keep supporting dads and families.🙏🏽🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/7eIemEGe9T

In addition to appearing alongside DeSantis, Dungy is a devout Christian, which ruffles the feathers of the Left.
At the press conference, Dungy said, “This is going to be tremendous and such a good help to fathers in Florida…This bill is so important. I want to thank all of the men and women that have been behind this. It is going to allow groups like All Pro Dad and people like those here today to do great things for our fathers here in Florida.”
It didn’t take long for deranged leftists to slam both Dungy and DeSantis for promoting a bill aimed at helping childhood delinquents.
Keith Olbermann, who has completely gone insane, led the charge.

When it comes to leftists, it’s more important to hate Republicans than judge the merits of a particular piece of legislation.
