Karl Frisch’s Sacred Texts

On December 13 the recently elected members of the Fairfax County School Board were sworn into office.  The incoming Chair, Karl Frisch, is pictured above as he took his oath.

What are the texts Frisch’s left hand rests on?  They don’t include the Bible, the Torah, the Koran or other sacred books commonly used when taking an important oath of office.  That’s okay.  There is no religious test for serving on the School Board.  But what texts does Mr. Frisch deem sacred?

Answer:  Mr. Frisch chose to rest his hand on five controversial, sexually themed books that many school boards have deemed to be inappropriate for students in elementary, middle and high schools:  Gender Queer, Lawn Boy, Flamer, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and All Boys Aren’t Blue.  Gender Queer is particularly pornographic.  It is a comic-book-style “memoir” of a sexually confused young woman who experimented with all manner of sexual activities.  Its drawings include images of oral sex, naked men lying together, and the like.  It is filled with graphic sexual language.  When offended members of the public have attempted to read excerpts at school board meetings, they have had their microphones shut off or have been chastised for exposing such material in a public forum.

Those who know Mr. Frisch cannot be surprised by his preoccupation with injecting sex into the schools at every opportunity, since this has been his focus since he came on the School Board in 2020.  He has been the champion of the radical transgender agenda, which includes permitting biological males to participate in female sports, allowing them to shower with girls in their locker rooms, allowing them to share hotel rooms with girls when on field trips, hiding gender dysphoria issues from parents, etc.  He has also been pushing a proposal to put boys and girls together in sex-ed classes.  Although opposed by 85% of the public in a survey, and although it isn’t supported by students or science, Mr. Frisch supports it.  Why?  Because there might be one student experiencing gender dysphoria who doesn’t want to choose whether to attend the boys’ or the girls’ class, so everyone else’s rights must give way to the desire of the tiny minority.

Although Mr. Frisch’s agenda is clear, it is nonetheless offensive that he chose to denigrate the importance of his oath of office by his in-your-face swearing on sexually explicit materials.  It speaks volumes about the priorities he will pursue as Chair of the School Board.

    Unfortunately, a large majority of voters in Fairfax County don’t seem to care about the direction of FCPS.😩😩😩

      I think they care, Richard, but not more than they cared about abortion in the last election (even though their rights still exist).. I guess lack of respect for life, perhaps also includes a lack of concern for the human person and the dignity of our most vulnerable people, children. We do live in a Democrat dominated area. People aren’t going to bite the hand that feeds them whether they are appointed or employed by the government. That includes the vast number of government contractors and lawyers who depend on the government to pay their high fees. The Government has no budget, so if no one rocks the boat everyone is still aboard.

      This person is now chair of the FCSB, controlling what 180,000 children in Fairfax Country will learn. from his extremely distorted viewpoint.

      There needs to be a call for his resignation. This is evil, and speaks to his predisposition towards sexualizing everything.

    This is almost too much to believe . . . a Fairfax School Board member swearing on a stack of pornography? This needs to be a national story.

    I saw the story. Apparently he received 65 percent of the vote. I’m sickened .

      Steve: Fairfax County, with all its government workers and government contractors, is solidly blue. In the recent election, all the Dem-endorsed candidates received about two-thirds of the vote. Most voters in off-year elections like this vote party-line ballots. The wins by Frisch and other school board candidates had little to do with their positions on the issues … Few voters even knew what they stood for. Frisch was particularly unbeatable … He was supported by an enormous amount of money from out-of-state sources.
