Woke NJ Military Goes after Local Mom
Inappropriate poster projects continued
For the past 2 years parents have witnessed New Jersey schools going overboard in the name of “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.” When the schools start decorating the entrance of the local elementary school with children’s art that displays the virtues of being “POLYSEXUAL”, you know things have just gone too far.
Last week, we reported on “safe space” posters project, displayed in the main entrance of the North Hanover Township Elementary School District, celebrating all different definitions “sexuality”, drawn by the 4th to 6th graders. This is surprising coming from, North Hanover, a conservative/military town with Republican legislatures. Mom and BOE member, Angela Reading alerted parents on Facebook as to what was transpiring in the school’s hallway.
Suddenly, our United States military became heavily entangled in this scandal. Soldier Christopher Shilling, stated that the Joint Base (McGuire, Fort Dix and Lakehurst) leadership is now working with local law enforcement to ensure the “safety” of the entire community.
Shilling seems to imply Angela Reading has endangered the entire community by being a concerned parent/whistle blower and informing parents as to what is being displayed in the entranceway of the elementary school. Many parents, who have learned about the inappropriate posters created by the 4th - 6th graders, have posted to Facebook because it is so alarming.
Its shocking that the military is so heavily involved with the police that he is able to speak as an official regarding the investigation and threats to Angela.
How much influence does the Joint Military base have over the local police in North Hanover? How closely are they working together to investigate citizens that use their freedom of speech? And what would possess the soldier to reveal the grade/classroom of Angela’s minor child on Facebook if he is busy keeping the community “safe”?
Additionally, Shilling is putting a target on the back of Angela and her minor child by speaking on behalf of the military, against her and revealing the grade of her child. This incompetent action made by a military official concerned Angela Reading so much that she pulled her children from the school yesterday with no plans to return. She feels as though Shilling has now endangered all kids in North Hanover Township with his reckless and aggressive behavior.
If he was really concerned about the community and the children, then why is he going after a mother and her kids so harshly online? If law enforcement and members of the military were concerned with the attention Angela brought to the district by sharing the posters, why would a high-ranking military official bring more negative attention to the district and go directly after a district parent?
Above, Jason Stamp, shared a petition in support of Angela’s freedom of speech and supports her right to alert the community to the inappropriate sexualization of children in the school. Shilling, goes after Angela again trying to discredit her. He also shared the below petition that calls Angela an “Extremists,” making it clear that he is against her freedom of speech and wants people to sign a petition to silence her.
Parents try to correct Shilling’s misunderstanding of the situation below, with no success.
After releasing official “joint investigation information”, attacking Angela Reading in multiple posts, then sharing a petition against her, Shilling decided to change the name on his facebook account to “Chris Topher.”
Is it possible that he is using his prestigious position in the military to intimidate Angela Reading and other parents to hide the child sexualization that is occurring in New Jersey public schools?
Why would he do this?
Is the United States Military now targeting moms who use their First Amendment right to speak out on matters of public and political concern regarding their kids?
Or is just one rogue he/him who has taken things too far?
Editors note: the original picture shared was not of Shilling and was removed. In addition Shilling’s rank is suspected to be “Major.”
All…based on his military tiltle/unit on his FB page, he’s most likely in the Army National Guard and although a Lt Col is a relatively high position, and he most likely is in a leadership position in his unit, he’s not part of the leadership cadre at the Joint Base and a person of relatively low influence across the 40,000 plus population of the base. That said if he made those comments ‘out of uniform’, meaning not while on Active Duty nor drilling with his guard unit and serving in a military capacity, his views do not necessarily reflect a military endorsement. However, if his comments came across in a way that he was using his rank/position to impart influence or to assign level of importance or while in an official capacity then he’s clearly he’s crossed the line. I think the latter may be true, the fact that he changed his profile name suggests he knew he made a huge error, either way, this man is a coward…As a military retiree from Joint Base McGuire, I recommend flooding the Joint Base FB page with concerns and linking the article…this guy is way out of line.
Wow, everyday is something else. We the people can’t keep up. How can we trust a woke military?
