A disabled veteran is furious that the Fairfax County schools are telling kids that the children of military veterans are bad because they are “privileged.”
Joe Mobley, a U.S. military veteran and father of a child in the Fairfax schools, is blasting the district for attacking the children of military veterans.
The kids were forced to play something the school is calling “privilege bingo.”
“This is completely out of touch. It’s offensive, and it’s just an indicator that the leadership in these schools needs to change,” Joe Mobley told Fox News.
Fairfax County high schoolers were asked to play “privilege bingo” to check their privilege. Some examples of privilege in the game included anyone that is a male, Christian, heterosexual, and anyone from a military family, among other categories.
Mobley stressed the difficulties faced by military families who often have to relocate around the country.
“We’re constantly sunsetting relationships and trying to develop new ones, and quite frankly, it’s incredibly destabilizing to a marriage,” he said.
“My kids for most of their lives, had never had a blood relative that wasn’t a parent at a birthday, at a Christmas, at a Thanksgiving because we lived 1,500 miles from the nearest relative,” Mobley stated.
“And to look at them and say that they’re privileged because they’re a military family is absolutely unacceptable.”
For its part, the Fairfax schools has decided to “revise” its propagandistic lesson plan.
So far, there is no confirmation of that revision.
