It is time to vote LD 10 State House Democrat Rep. Dave Paul out of office!
APRIL 2020: ESSB 5395/Comprehensive Sex-Ed (CSE) to be taught in ALL public schools beginning in Kindergarten. This new state mandate was signed into law last week and forces local school districts to use the WA state Office of Public Instruction’s set of selective curriculum systems like “Three Rs” and “FLASH” which to many reasonable people are pornographic. And anticipates graphic sex lessons as early as 2nd and 3rd grades.
These highly controversial CSE programs go way beyond traditional sex education. They indoctrinate youth to embrace sexual and gender ideologies, promote abortion, and teach high-risk sexual behaviors to the youngest of children.
Democrats are saying this is all ok because parents can opt their children out of the classes. But the reality is that there is peer pressure and this could ostracize the child, also the other kids will be sharing the information anyway. CSE reprogramming is designed to dramatically alter the sexual and gender norms of society. It started in California years ago and now has spread like a virus all across the United States. It is a coordinated indoctrination of our youth. Planned Parenthood is backing this as it promotes abortion. NOTE: Curriculum High School FLASH describes grades 9-12 as the “Pregnancy Grades”.
To no ones surprise already harmful CSE materials are appearing on school-provided laptops, tablets and other devices, in community, after-school, and peer education programs, and now, even one of the largest pornography sites is reportedly offering CSE. SB 5395 is a disaster for our young children and needs to be repealed!
There are many opposed to CSE including the hundreds of immigrants that joined in last months Olympia protest at the end of session that included an estimated 3,000 people. Others opposed to CSE include the American College of Pediatricians which says: “Comprehensive Sexuality Education goes far beyond sex ed, and is a dangerous assault on the health and innocence of children” To view their war on children video click here.

Additionally we are working in close partnership with the team at “Parents for Safe Schools” that is supporting Referendum 90, which will repeal the comprehensive sex ed mandate forced through this past legislative session. We have less than days to submit 129,811 signatures to put Referendum 90 on the November ballot, to request a R-90 petition(s) click here.
Sixty years ago the Communist Party said their long term plan to destroy America was to use the school system to take over the minds of America’s youth. They openly said they would gradually legitimize sexual promiscuity, homosexuality and abortion through “sex education” in the public schools. What they didn’t say is that theses policies would take over the Democratic Party, but that is exactly what has happened. It is time to vote all State Democrats who voted for this legislation out of office!
On March 25th Gov. Jay Inslee decreed that construction is not “essential activity,” shutting down construction – residential and commercial activity – until at least April 8. Inslee is only one of two Governors who has issued a statewide “Stay at Home Order” that does not designate construction as “essential.” This order allows for state tax payer funded public-sector construction for “low income” housing, but will take away thousands of private-sector jobs, as builders and contractors are being forced to cancel orders. Also, this mandate kills many trades, hurting families and the economy. Now construction companies, roofers, carpenters, and others may have no other choice except to leave the state to find work.
The construction industry already uses safe protocols, and we should not punish the private sector in this time of economic downturn. We should allow the construction trades to continue to work as long as workers are practicing CDC guidelines as best possible: only going to work when healthy, restricting the number of workers on-site; using hygienic measures, hand washing, masks, and social distancing. Please sign this petition and tell Governor Inslee that Washington needs to be like other states, and to keep construction an “essential activity.”
MARCH 2020: ESSB 5395 mandates that comprehensive sex education be taught in ALL Washington public schools beginning in kindergarten (grades K-12). This is being enforced by the WA State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal. Curriculum includes graphic LGBT “gender fluid” details, pictorial books, etc. to be shared with very young children about sex and discussions about gender identity, sexual orientation, etc.
ALL State Republican Legislators Oppose This Legislation. 17th LD Vicki Kraft voiced her concerns about mandated sex ed measures last month which had a public hearings in the House Education Committee, saying: “It seems there is movement on both of these very disturbing bills. Senate Bill 5395 passed the Senate on Jan. 22. And the House Education Committee voted to pass House Bill 2184 on Feb 4th. Both bills would force sex education in classrooms as early as kindergarten. With your help, we continue to fight this battle. Parents should have the right to decide what their children learn and when they learn about these sensitive subjects, not government. I invite you to watch my video on this subject, which explains why I oppose these bills.” (Video). Of Note: Democrat LD 10 Rep. Dave Paul (Vice Chair of the House Education Committee) originally made the motion to approve the HB 2184 measure. HB 2184 was killed at the last cutoff, but we won’t forget who supported it!
Also last week nearly 700 people showed up to oppose updated sex ed ESSB 5385 at the House public hearing. But again even with all the public backlash against this law, ALL the Democrats on the House Committee, including LD 10 Rep. Dave Paul still supported it, and voted to move it out of committee.
OF NOTE: Norma Smith reported that over 90% of all her emails on this subject were against it. House Republicans stand with parents who believe this is too much, too soon for kids and that local control is being taken away from school as school boards will be subject to having to choose this curriculum for their students
When we send our kids to a public school to learn, the focus should be about academics; reading, writing and arithmetic. The basics like Science, Home Economics, Shop and learning about the Constitutions and our founding documents should also be a priority. We need to promote school choice and make sure parents and the local school boards fully control school curriculum and get the state out of it. Instead the Democrat State Legislature have become obsessed with a radical liberal socialist agenda to indoctrinate and social engineer the next generation of children. I am vehemently against this legislation which is preditorial grooming and borders on child abuse.
FEBRUARY 2020: House Bill 2184 seeks to implement Mandatory Sex Education beginning in kindergarten. The law would require “comprehensive” sexual health education with an affirmative consent curriculum in ALL WA STATE PUBLIC SCHOOLS by the 2022-23 school year in accordance with the recommendations of the Sexual Health Workgroup. Last year public outrage and Republicans in the legislature stopped a similar measure, curriculum would have allowed graphic details to be shared with very young children about sex and discussions about gender identity, etc.
However at the end of the 2019 session state Democrats funded and helped organize a 16-member sexual health workgroup headed up by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), which met last summer and outlined plans to push for this new statewide mandated sex ed measure, HB 2184. OF NOTE: IN 2019 DEMOCRAT LD 10 STATE HOUSE REP. DAVE PAUL VOTED FOR THE CURRENT STATE BUDGET THAT FUNDED THE SEXUAL HEALTH WORK GROUP. DAVE PAUL IS VICE CHAIR OF THE HOUSE EDUCATION COMMITTEE THAT IS OVERSEEING HB 2184 PUBLIC HEARINGS,
The Democrat Senate companion bill for this is ESSB 5395, which if signed into law would mandate EVERY public school to offer “evidence-informed,” “medically accurate,” and “age-appropriate” sex education as an integral part of the curriculum for kindergarten through 12th grade by Sept 1, 2021. State government mandates of this nature are completely unacceptable! This liberal indoctrination of young children is absolutely horrible legislation that endangers the future of our next generations!
