Last Wednesday, more than 150 outraged parents packed a Salinas, California school board meeting to voice their frustrations over teachers who were caught in November on leaked audio recordings discussing their plans to recruit middle schoolers into a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club by disguising the name and hiding their actions from parents.
Jessica Konen, who claims the school staff at Buena Vista Middle School in Salinas indoctrinated her then 12-year-old daughter by recruiting her into a deceptively-named “equality club” that was actually a radical LGBTQ club, was one of about 30 furious parents who spoke during an extended public comment period during the meeting.
After school officials referred to the accusations as a “mistake,” Konen absolutely eviscerated the school board for downplaying the seriousness of its teachers and staff coaching and manipulating her now gender dysphoric daughter and others through nefarious means and colluding to hide it from parents.
Via The Epoch Times:
“I stand here today in front of all of you because I am outraged. Is this really barely coming to light? Are you guys serious?
How could you even allow this? How could you even have this meeting to question it? How dare you let these teachers come in and act as if they have done nothing wrong? A mistake? How long of a mistake?”
Konen also accused the middle school’s staff of burying evidence that her child was having suicidal thoughts, claiming that school officials had access to her concerning internet search history, but did not notify her – effectively taking away her “ability to parent” her child.
The “predatorial information that is being taught to young children, she says, is what has directly contributed to her daughter’s confusion and troubling mental state.
“They [Buena Vista Middle School officials] didn’t tell me that my child was suicidal.
You allow these teachers to open their classrooms, teaching predatorial information to a young child, a mindful child that doesn’t even know how to comprehend it all. How do you not know what’s going on your own campuses? Did you think that no parent would ever come forward? You will not quiet me today. I will stand here today and protect my child along with every other child who has not come forward yet.”
Do they [school officials] have psychiatry degrees that I was unaware of? Because I didn’t hire them. I did not hire them to sit there and nitpick my child’s brain. You took away my ability to parent my child.”
“You planted seeds. Your job was to educate my child in math, science, English, etc. – Do your job and let me do mine!”
The school reportedly called the parents in for a meeting where they informed them that their daughter is trans. The teacher then proceeded to call CPS on them when they didn’t use the “correct” name and pronouns.

Just before Konen’s explosive comments, her father, Gunter Konen, expressed his own outrage over the school’s handling of his granddaughter, explaining that she had been a straight-A student before she was indoctrinated by her teachers with their leftist gender theory.
He also called on officials to resign for sicking Child Protective Services on his daughter when she raised concerns with the administration after a teacher announced her daughter was “trans-fluid.”
The Epoch Times has more details on the CPS incident:
The teacher told Konen her daughter was ‘trans-fluid.’
‘They kept looking at me angrily because I kept saying ‘she,’ and [said] that it was going to take some time to process everything,’ [Konen] said.
Within a few days of the meeting, the King City Police Department showed up at [Konen’s] door and told her there had been a complaint made to Child Protective Services (CPS). The police questioned her two children and asked them if they wanted to be removed from the home.
‘They made me feel like a monster,’ [Konen] said.
According to Konen, CPS dropped the case and did not demand she call her daughter by masculine pronouns as her teacher had insisted.”
The Konen’s, like several others, are fed-up and demanding answers from the school board after several recordings surfaced last month of two teachers at Buena Vista Middle School coaching other teachers to conceal the nature of LGTBQ clubs from parents while they led a seminar titled “how we run a GSA in a Conservative community” at a massive California Teachers Association (CTA) conference at the end of October.
In one shocking clip, a teacher can be heard explaining how they keep no records on who attends club meetings in order to maintain plausible deniability with unapproving parents.
“Because we are not official, we have no club rosters. We keep no records.
In fact, sometimes we don’t really want to keep records because if parents get upset that their kids are coming? We’re like, ‘Yeah, I don’t know. Maybe they came?’ You know, we would never want a kid to get in trouble for attending if their parents are upset.”
The radical teachers were also caught discussing several new strategies to hide their woke agenda in order to avoid any pushback from parents by pulling “mind-tricks” on 6th graders because too many kids had been talking to their parents about the indoctrination.
Keep in mind, this is during a presentation by a speaker at the conference. Teachers are literally taking notes and bringing this insanity back to their classrooms.
“I know, so sad, right? Sorry for you, you had to do something hard! Honestly, your 12-year-old probably knew all that, right?”
The Spreckels Union School District has since suspended the teachers – with pay – pending the outcome of an independent investigation.
This incident is just the latest in a recent string of shocking actions by school officials in California and across the country. In just the past three months, we have seen several troubling cases where corrupt, radical educators have used their trusted positions of authority to indoctrinate and push their radical ideologies, often at the expense of the physical safety of the children themselves – as was the case in the massive coverups by school officials in Loudoun County, Virginia and Charlotte, North Carolina.
And as of this month, schools in Los Angeles have even started to jab children with the experimental vaccine behind their parent’s backs.
Meanwhile, the DOJ and the FBI are shamelessly investigating the concerned parents of these children as domestic terrorists – surely many have ended up on a dystopian list somewhere, but when will any of these real monsters be held accountable?
