An official with the Virginia Parent-Teacher Association resigned after she was recorded on camera saying opponents of critical race theory can “die.”
“Today, the Virginia PTA executive committee requested and received the resignation of Michelle Leete, who served as Vice President of Training,” a statement from the association reads. “The actions & rhetoric of Ms. Leete & all of the like-minded partisan supporters of the SB are deeply disappointing. It evinces a deep lack of concern for children & parents, particularly where the wellbeing of children & families clash with political considerations,” a tweet accompanying the statement reads.
Leete was recorded at a rally Thursday denouncing opponents of critical race theory and saying, ‘Let them die.’ “Let’s deny this off-key band of people that are anti-education, anti-teacher, anti-equity, anti-history, anti-racial … anti-opportunities, anti-help people, anti-diversity, [inaudible], anti-science, anti-change agent, anti-social justice, anti-health care, anti-worker, anti-LGBTQ+, anti-children, anti-health care, anti-worker, anti-environment, anti-admissions policy change, anti-inclusion, anti-live and let live – let them die!” Leete said in a video.
The resignation comes as parents across the nation have gone viral in videos denouncing the critical race theory, including in New York, where one mother told a school board to stop teaching the “communist” lessons [FOX].
