NBC News Paints ‘Moms for Liberty’ as Racist After a South Carolina School Board Fired Its Black Superintendent

NBC News Paints ‘Moms for Liberty’ as Racist After a South Carolina School Board Fired Its Black Superintendent

The report buried the fact that the new superintendent is also black.

The conservative activist group ‘Moms for Liberty’ recently won South Carolina, effectively taking over a school board.

Within hours, they banned the teaching of Critical Race Theory and fired the school superintendent.

NBC News covered the story but used a racial (and dishonest) angle. Here’s what they tweeted:

Here’s what they failed to mention in their tweet:

From the report:

Moms for Liberty-backed school board members fire superintendent, ban critical race theory

On Tuesday evening, the Berkeley County School District in South Carolina swore in the board members who were elected last week, six of whom were endorsed by the conservative activist group Moms for Liberty.

Within two hours, the school board had voted to fire the district’s first Black superintendent, terminate the district’s lawyer, ban critical race theory and set up a committee to decide whether certain books and materials should be banned from schools.

In addition, the board voted to replace the chair with Mac McQuillin, a local attorney and one of the board members backed by Moms for Liberty.

The rapid moves Tuesday in the Berkeley County district, the fourth largest in the state, showed the impact of Moms for Liberty’s focus on electing conservative school board members, and prompted uproar among some community members in attendance.

Buried towards the bottom of the article is this (emphasis is mine):

Moments later, McQuillin moved to terminate Deon Jackson, who was appointed superintendent last year, and replace him with Anthony Dixon, who had worked in the district as an administrator. Dixon will be the district’s second Black superintendent, after Jackson.

Funny how NBC left out that key detail.

The liberal media is determined to divide Americans by race and to advance the leftist narrative that conservatives are racists. They prove it again and again.

The folks who insist that race is the or one of the answers to every situation are racist. Just a question of degree.

    Those who find racism under every rock tend to be the ones living there.

    Diversity [dogma] (i.e. color judgment, class-based bigotry) denies individual dignity, individual conscience, intrinsic value, and normalizes color blocs (e.g. “people of color”), color quotas (e.g. too many people from Asia), and affirmative discrimination (e.g. one-child, reproductive rites).

    Degree in grievance studies most likely.

    Elder sis was a Nurse Admin at a state-run facility. One of her duties was to write up workers (nurses, aides, etc.) for repeated late arrivals, or other violations. Previous admins didn’t want to fight the unions to enforce working requirements – could be a bureaucratic nightmare. There was more than one nurse who was consistently late arriving. Several happened to be black. Sis wasn’t having it – at the very least unfair to the fellow employees unable to leave on time. Sis documented everything, because Unions and State, When eventual verbal warnings had to escalate and some Late-e-loos inevitably played the “It’s because I’m Black” card, she had all her ducks in a row.
    “That (white) nurse didn’t get written up for the same thing!’
    ‘She was late once in three months, and called it in. You were late every day last week and a dozen times last month – without calling.”
    “Supervisors are racist!”
    “Um, your immediate boss is black.”

    The idiots who play the “IBIB'” card as a “get out of work jail” card ruin the work environment not only for all the other workers pulling their weight but possibly for other, black workers, who do their job well.

      Any employer worth working for holds the employees equally accountable. When employees are gold bricking then the remaining employees have to carry an increased load. That risks burn out for those doing the right thing as well as these higher quality employees finding a competitor who will value their skills and dedication.

Journalists killing journalism with one red liberal lie after another.

The correct response is “NBC News is a disinformation platform – not a legitimate news outlet.”

Moving on….

Stop capitalizing “black”.

    Stop watching tv commercials.

      Stop buying from the makers of products flogging all the racial stuff. And let them know why.

      Is there a White married couple in America anymore?

        Not in the latest mailing for holders of Chase’s Disney-branded credit cards (Disney Rewards). The glossy little monthly magazine didn’t have pictures of any people of non-color (whities, crackers, take your pick) out of the dozen or so photos of happy Disney loving families an couples.

        I’m waiting for the metaphorical destruction of The Tower of Babel and Sodom and Gomorrah along with a great flood to crush and then wash away the corrupt and perverted media, the lords and masters that tax and control us, and the freaks and groomers and thieving socialists/communists/slimeballs that live among us and want to destroy us from within.

        I think we’ve passed the point of no return.

There is a fairly high probably that both the one fired and the replacement are not competent, the same is true for white washed up jock school administrators.

    I’ve only met one superintendent who was. He was such a political animal that it didn’t matter if he was competent because educational competency wasn’t what he used to make decisions.

I hear there is a crowd source “fact check” on Twitter where clarification and context is added to misleading tweets. This happened when Joe mentioned the SS bump and forgot to say it was a result of inflation.

Liberal Playbook: When you have no counter scream racism.

I don’t care if they are black, brown or white just as long as they are doing a good job for the students.

    As I read things, asking for competency or merit is itself racist. Thinking that way upsets the entire AA structure.

    As one example I offer the push by the lefties to eliminate test-only admissions to elite high schools.

    The entire “disparate impact” nonsense as proof of discrimination, despite the fact that no discrimination can be found/proved, come from the same file drawer.

      Dimsdale in reply to fscarn. | November 18, 2022 at 11:32 am

      Substituting “affirmative action” for merit is the left effectively saying that blacks can’t achieve without a helping hand from white leftists.

      What are they going to say, that “systemic racism” in K-12, in the form of lousy education, is to blame? A system they have had nearly complete control of since at least the 1950’s?

      Using racism to fake merit will be the downfall of this country. Brought to you by the Democrat Socialists.

Why don’t we use yellow as a color for people any more? Or Is that reserved for describing journalism?

    Please it’s “Persons of Jaundice” now.

    Dimsdale in reply to r2468. | November 18, 2022 at 11:37 am

    The spectrum of human pigmentation is far wider and actually real as compared to the contrived spectrum of genders (with added “fluidity”), yet the closest the left ever got to recognizing this was George Zimmerman’s “white hispanic.”

      George, Zimmerman, and “white hispanic”, doesn’t get more diverse (i.e. individual, family, and color blocs) than that. That said, he’s more of a peach hispanic than albino. Damn albino… white privilege.

    Jesse Jackson is removing all traces of yellow from his rainbow coalition saying, “I never believed that stupid red and yellow, black and white song anyway.”

      r2468 in reply to Paula. | November 18, 2022 at 12:05 pm

      We used to have the Redskins in Washington. Now the reds in DC are the commies hiding inside the green movement.

Charles Darwin’s theory has evolved to the point where survival of the fittest is determined by politicians who support action that is affirmative in nature to over-ride mother nature in arriving at an equitable outcome.

Contrary to Martin Luther Jr, content of character doesn’t have a damn thing to do with it.

I tell you, capitalizing black in the corporate media has been the most empowering move since getting rid of that woman on the syrup bottle. SAT scores in Philadelphia public schools are through the roof, I tell ya!

    I gotta say, liberals have done an excellent job of removing any vestiges of blacks and native Americans from any advertising and branding.

    Liberals – accomplishing what racists have failed to do for generations.

    RIP Aunt Jemima

    RIP Indian woman representing Land O’Lakes

    RIP Uncle Ben

If you can’t fire a black person, there will be fewer black people hired. That’s not where we want to go.

But the woman who says she’s a teacher in the video is interesting. She says she’s pulling her kid out of the district because it no longer has critical race theory in the curriculum.

Not even sure I believe that. I’ve never heard anyone say that before, that they want their own kid to have that nonsense.

Oh, jeezeee, all the commenters missing THE REALLY IMPORTANT POINT OF THE STORY:

GRASSROOTS CAN CHANGE THE SCHOOL BOARD AND WHAT KIDS ARE TAUGHT!!!!

AS TODD BEAMER WOULD SAY, “LET’S ROLL.”

Good riddance!

Allegations of diversity [dogma] (e.g. racism, sexism)?

The report buried the fact that the new superintendent is also black.

Mandela’s Xhosa vs Zulu, Hutu vs Tutsi, Kenyan elite vs deplorables, etc. Color blocs are an anachronistic artifact of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) doctrine under the Pro-Choice ethical religion.

All commentary about the superintendents, ex- and new-, aside, the real news here is that the new board stepped up and did IMMEDIATELY what they said they would do during the election.

How refreshing.

AF_Chief_Master_Sgt | November 18, 2022 at 2:24 pm

Perhaps the new superintendent isn’t “black” enough. Or maybe he didn’t vote for Biden, so he ain’t black at all.

MSM does not do journalism just bias and propaganda. That is what NBC News put out.

I live here in Berkeley County, and I voted for the new school board. I know some of the new members personally.

Trust me — ain’t no racism here. All they want is for their kids to get a good education … the fundamental stuff, not a bunch of woke garbage.

The other side plays the racism card EVERY TIME something happens that affects a black ( l/c deliberate), even if that something is 100% warranted.

I’m glad I’m old so that I won’t have to watch our beloved Republic crumble around me.

Let me see if I can get this to work – –

Dr. Dixon

Think NBC will carry his remarks??

NBC news has been garbage since they used hobby rocket motors to deceitfully amplify the destruciveness wrought by some product they were demonizing.

Is there any real difference between NBC and MSNBC?

    AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to Q. | November 19, 2022 at 6:30 am

    Oh, Oh, let me try!!!!

    One is regular nitwit broadcasting, the other just has more shit?

Firing a racist Superintendent to hire a Black Super who isn’t one. What an idea. BTW: who was in the “uproar” crowd about this? Let me guess….
