A Texas teacher Anthony Lane defended a drag queen event: “Parents ‘don’t know what’s best’ for their children.”
The teacher allegedly defended the presence of a drag queen during a high school class in a Facebook post, in which he openly pushed his own ideology, and said that parents who objected are “bigoted” and “should not have the final say in raising their own children.”

English teacher Anthony Lane, of Willis Independent School District (WISD) High School in Texas, reportedly removed his Facebook post in which he defended another teacher’s decision to host a drag queen in the high school’s cosmetology class to offer makeup tips. Lane sharply criticized parents who complained about the drag queen’s presence without their knowledge.
Faithwire posted a screenshot of Lane’s post before it was allegedly removed.
The screenshot reportedly shows Lane posted on October 26 that he is “both a parent and a teacher.”
“Our society is very sensitive when it comes to criticizing parents, and teachers are often afraid of parents because they are given so much authority,” he reportedly wrote and continued:
I believe that raising a child is the responsibility of the community, and that parents should not have the final say. Let’s be honest, some of you don’t know what is best for your kids.
Parents believe they should be able to storm the school in the name of political and religious beliefs if something happens in the school that they are morally opposed to. They forget that we make a promise to prepare their children to live in a diverse world. We are not required to protect the misguided, bigoted views of their parents. More
If parents aren’t actively engaged in their kid’s school management and academics, they’ll do a disservice to their kids for life. Teachers do not know what’s best for someone else’s child.
Take the fight to the school board!! Them take your tax dollars and walk them out the door..

The teacher should be fired immediately as well as anyone else with the attitude of removing parental responsibility and giving it to the state.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
