In Superintendent Mueller’s Nov. 10 letter in the Eagle he seems surprised about the “rally against racism in public education” outside Coronado High School on Nov. 8. But his ideas shaped the opinions of the political “activists” who “tagged” CHS a racist school; scrawling crudely obscene graffiti of genitalia and who characterized Coronado schools as the racist equivalent of Nazis; all because some students chose Halloween costumes that activists decided were culturally wrong.
In 2021, this idea that Coronado is a hotbed of racism is rooted in the cowardice of officials in authority. Race-baiting activists have learned to rely on officials for knee-jerk reactions of appeasement in attempts to blunt the false outrage of “activists” marching in our streets, screaming obscenities on our sidewalks and posting outrage on social media. Think back to a June 9th, 2020 statement from the CUSD Superintendent promising to “incorporate explicit inclusivity and antiracism in our actions as a staff and as a school community.” Recall again now removed signage on Coronado elementary schools proclaiming that returning post-COVID students were to be “reeducated” to make Coronado schools “No Place for Hate.” Why was this necessary? Because, with no data to support the idea, Coronado parents have been molding their children’s characters in hideous ways prior to unleashing their hate-filled offspring on their unwary peers in elementary school. More recently, recall two official CUSD statements in rapid succession following the CHS Basketball CIF championship victory, the first on June 20, 2021, from the Superintendent citing the school’s “commitment to stand against any act of bias” and the second, immediately after, from CUSD Trustees, condemning the actions of unnamed “perpetrators” (plural) as “fueled” by a preexisting threefold bias of “racism, classism and colorism;” this despite the fact that both the Superintendent and the Trustees knew the identity of the lone culpable “perpetrator,” a local political activist and SEIU union organizer.
Yet only now, when the “racism” seeds, carefully planted by leaders, begin to bear fruit that the sowers and tillers huff and puff denouncing the actions of those responsible for the “radical harmful behavior on our school grounds on Nov. 8.” This is hollow reproof from an administrator who silently attempted to incorporate a political activism program into Coronado schools under a false premise of hate, using a cynical cover story of “anti-bullying.”
If outrage about the Nov. 8 racial taunting and vandalizing of Coronado Schools is genuine, we will see citations issued and/or prosecutions of the people identified on videotape, who, without fear of consequence, defaced Coronado High school in violation of law. If the Superintendent’s letter is nothing but virtue-signaling, nothing is precisely what will be done. Concerned citizens may watch and learn…
