New Student-Led 'Red Guard' Installed in Maine School District Causes Fury at Board Meeting

Using students to pressure other students into "group-think" is right out of the Commie playbook. It is not only disturbing that the Attorney General of Maine is complicit in doing this, but it should be a shocking wake-up call to parents nationwide. This threat of Communism is real...
[PJMedia.com] If you're unfamiliar with the Red Guard instituted by Chairman Mao in China, get ready to understand it better than you ever wanted to. Critics of the sweeping transgender ideology infecting the school and medical systems have likened the ideology's proponents to China's Red Guard, a group of students trained to turn against their parents and other adults to usher in a brutal dictatorship. The Red Guard famously tortured its own teachers and parents in the name of the Communist cultural revolution. It was a dark and dangerous time in China for anyone who would not bow to the demands of tyrants. (Screengrab image: Students part of Red Guard movement in China)
A school system in Maine has instituted its own burgeoning Red Guard called the "Civil Rights Team." This benign-sounding organization of kids is supposed to ensure that student rights are upheld. What has happened instead led to parents sounding off at the latest school board meeting to complain that the Civil Rights Team is just a bullying organization with an agenda. The Maine Wire covered the story:
Kristen Day said students affiliated with one of RSU 14's Civil Rights Teams harassed her daughter. When her daughter refused to speak about her sexuality, two students affiliated with the club began to bully her and call her homophobic. (Screengrab image)
"They insisted she was gay because she dressed gay and listened to gay music," Day said of her daughter, who was a 7th grader at the time of the alleged harassment.
"She was then called homophobic because she wasn't at least bi," Day said.
"She's not political, but she does not want to talk about her sexuality in school," she said.
Day went on to describe how the CRT (Is it a coincidence that their acronym mirrors Critical Race Theory?) founded by the Maine Attorney General's office, pressured the kids into wearing pronoun pins.
Civil Rights Teams (CRTs) operate in Maine schools as a project of the Maine Attorney General's Office, and the nominal goal of the student organizations is to reduce "bias-motivated" bullying and harassment in schools.
Day said her daughter was harassed about her sexuality by students affiliated with the school's CRT under the pretext of opening a discussion about student sexuality.
CRT members also created surveys for their peers to take with questions about sexuality and gender, and they pressured them to don "pronoun" pins, Day said.
Windham Superintendent Christopher Howell, instead of investigating the allegations, wrote an email denying it ever happened.
"In short, the focus of [Civil Rights] teams is on helping to create a safe school environment for all," said Howell.
"We are not aware of the Civil Rights Team being involved in the situation you're referring to," he said.
Using students to pressure other students into "group-think" is right out of the Commie playbook. It is not only disturbing that the Attorney General of Maine is complicit in doing this, but it should be a shocking wake-up call to parents nationwide. This threat of Communism is real. It is happening right now in this country. The question is, what are you going to do about it? If left unchecked this only ends one way: the same way it ended in China.
