Randy Fine: Children are victims of school boards, not the other way around

Furious-Dad-Says-Florida-School-PUTTING-A-Mask-On-His
The politicians aren’t the victims here — our children are.

I want you to imagine a story.

Imagine that after George Floyd’s murder at the hands of the government last year, the Orlando Sentinel bemoaned the anger toward the police officer who killed him.

Imagine the newspaper recycling claims of threats and intimidation — without evidence.

Imagine them making Derek Chauvin — not Floyd — the victim.

You need not imagine — the Sentinel editorial board did exactly that on Friday.

They decried the alleged treatment of Brevard School Board Member Jennifer Jenkins, who has made a series of inflammatory — and largely unsubstantiated — claims about threats and “harassment” that she faced due to her views on mask mandates.

The Sentinel made no mention of her victim, whose life she put at risk. Who, like Floyd, couldn’t breathe.

Ironically, substantial evidence exists to suggest that Jenkins is Brevard’s own version of Jessie Smollett, who fabricated claims of racist police brutality. It turns out that Jenkins has been spending several hours a day during business hours, multiple times each week — when she claimed she was “working from home” and was on the clock for taxpayers — instead in the private home of a man with a history of charges for rape, domestic violence, child abuse, and theft of government property.

This criminal has a history of using burner phones, fake news sites, and fake social media accounts that he administers to create Smollett-style false flags.

It worked. The Sentinel got duped into citing a “news story” from her “friend’s” fake news site as the basis for much of the editorial.

But the Sentinel made no mention of a real news story, about Jenkins’ victim, who, like Floyd, couldn’t breathe.

Jenkins claims she is the victim of a fake DCF abuse claim. She was — but the claim was for something that was easily disprovable. Her description of her interactions with DCF have been inconsistent and denied by DCF.

The claim came in from a burner phone, which may well be tracked back, again, to the criminal whose home she visits so often.

There actually is real abuse going on in Jenkins’ life, but it was inflicted by Jenkins. On a seven-year-old, nonverbal, little girl with Down syndrome. A constituent who attended elementary school at one of the schools in her district, Sofia Steel.

And one for which the Orlando Sentinel did not breathe one word. Apparently, it only matters when Floyd can’t breathe.

As Gov. Ron DeSantis and I shared, alongside Sofia’s father, at an event in Central Florida two days before their editorial ran, at Jenkins’ direction, school staff forcibly tied a mask to Sophia’s face with a nylon rope — without the knowledge, let alone consent — of Sofia’s parents. For six weeks.

Her parents only found out when she got off the school bus one day with the mask tied so tightly around her face she could barely breathe. The staff had forgotten to remove it that day so her parents would not find out. When Dr. Steel attempted to call Jenkins repeatedly, she refused to speak to him. Why? She was spending her time masquerading as a victim to gullible news organizations like the Sentinel instead of fighting to stop the abuse of an actual victim.

Yesterday, I sent this op-ed to the Sentinel in response to their ignoring Sofia’s child abuse in favor of the liberal politician whose actions caused it. They refused.

On Wednesday, I said there is a special place in hell for Jenkins for what she did to Sofia. I stand by that. And there is a special place in hell for all of those who would choose to defend her.

Parents have every right to be angry with Florida School Boards who treat their children as subjects to be controlled and indoctrinated. School closures, mask mandates, allowing boys to play on girls’ sports teams, and critical race theory have awakened a sleeping giant — parents. We aren’t going away.

In Florida, with DeSantis at the helm, we will stand with parents, and against Joe Biden, Merrick Garland, and their local henchmen like the Sentinel and Jenkins who attempt to silence legitimate outrage.

Because outrage is warranted.

The politicians aren’t the victims here — our children are.

And we won’t back down.

    Florida Politics you cheapen yourself when you print op-eds from people like Fine, who consistently misconstrues the truth, cherry-picks, and out-and-out lies. You should do better.

    See links below…Let’s let people decide if that is acceptable. In my opinion, the tie looks to be easily removable, even by the child. Sofia has Down syndrome and has trouble keeping a mask in place, as stated by the parents. The tie looks to be within the acceptable standards of the Down Syndrome Research Foundation. I have yet to see any indication of any type of physical, mental, or emotional damage being done to Sofia from this happening. AND the parents failed to put in for a mask opt-out for the child if she needed one. This could certainly have been handled better by the school and the parents. How about we let the district investigation complete, and then issue judgments? If the investigation reveals that the school personnel failed to comply with some standard or policy, I am all for the proper punishment being administered. If the parents of the child can show some form of physical, mental, or emotional damage to Sofia, then she deserves to be compensated. If the parents knew Sofia could not keep a mask in place for a full school day and they did NOT put in for an opt-out, then they share some of the responsibility.

    Randy needs to lose his torches and pitchforks…he is an EXTREMIST.

    In the article, I see that Randy Fine is linking to his media on Red Voice Matter and GAB, both are known extremist websites.

    US Constitution Article 1 Section 8: “To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;—”

    I, As on of the People of the state of Florida, Suri juris, demand that FHP officers are stationed at the state border and outside all federal building and/or land within the state of Florida. I further demand that ALL federal agents from any agency, and all entities acting on behalf of any federal agent or entity be followed and observed. If at anytime any federal entity attempts to execute any jurisdiction, under the color of law, upon any one or group of the People that they immediately be apprehended under Title 18 USC 242 and 245 and also under Title 42 USC 1983.

    We the People have ALL POLITICAL POWER but all bar members have hidden the law from us. Read your state constitution and learn about Notices and Affidavits. We don’t need ANY lawyers and we don’t need the corrupt court system. Davecaresforyou on YT has taught me how to fight with the real law.
