Earlier this week, The Daily Wire published a shocking investigative piece that exposes the sickening attempt by Loudoun County Schools to bury the brutal sexual assault of a 9th-grade student in a shameless attempt to preserve the Left’s radical agenda in schools.
The male ‘transgender’ offender was reportedly wearing a dress when he raped the girl in the lady’s bathroom at Stone Bridge High School. The school district’s policy allows male students to use the girl’s bathroom and vice versa.
Not only did the school officials cover up the incident to ‘prevent controversy over their transgender policy,’ but they also arrested and prosecuted the girl’s father after he tried to sound the alarm at a school board meeting.
On June 22, Scott Smith joined hundreds of other outraged parents at a Loudoun County school board meeting to speak out on behalf of his daughter. The meeting was eventually deemed an “unlawful assembly” by the board members, and Smith was one of two people who were arrested that day.
Smith was attempting to tell the board that his 14-year-old daughter had been raped in the girl’s bathroom by a boy wearing a skirt, but when another person at the meeting – a local leftist activist – interrupted and told him that she didn’t believe his daughter, he shouted back at her. That’s when a police officer grabbed him by the arm and arrested him.
The incident went viral, but his daughter’s story remained buried.

Following Smith’s arrest, the county charged Smith and prosecuted him.
After hearing part of Smith’s cut-off testimony, the county’s superintendent – Scott Ziegler – claimed that the outrage over new transgender policies was “unreasonable” because the school district had “no record of a sexual assault ever taking place in a school bathroom.”
Thanks to what the Daily Wire calls a ‘false statement by the superintendent,’ the new transgender policy was approved by the board and passed after the meeting concluded.
“A school policy passed following what appear to be false statements from the superintendent – a policy whose passage would have been politically impossible had Smith’s story seen the light of day.”
The brutal assault was able to be hidden for so long because the school tirelessly worked to conceal the incident for months. They made every effort to avoid getting law enforcement involved in the investigation, telling Smith that they would handle everything “in-house.” They also lied about the assault when communicating with other parents at the school by describing it as “something out of the ordinary.”
The school did not even expel the offender, all they did was transfer him to another school. Once at the new school, he was allowed to continue using the girl’s bathroom and he sexually assaulted another girl just a short while later.
Luke Rosiak of the Daily Wire makes a keen observation, putting it as simply as you can.
“Two girls, allegedly sexually assaulted in school, four months apart, by the same person. And so far, the only person convicted of a crime is the victim’s father.”
This is not justice – It’s the exact OPPOSITE.
The inexcusable actions by these so-called ‘educators’ are truly abhorrent. The Loudoun County School District has completely obliterated any shred of credibility they were hanging on to and should be immediately investigated for willfully endangering students in order to fraudulently advance their radical policy agendas. If the allegations are true, several people should be put in jail for this crime.
As of right now, the only one being punished is Scott Smith. It’s sickening.

Virginia dad vilified for defending daughter shows rot at heart of system: Devine

Virginia dad who says his daughter was raped in girls’ bathroom was hauled out of school board meeting
The callousness is what is so hard to stomach from the progressive elites of Loudoun County, Virginia, the wealthy dormitory community of Washington, DC.
They laughed and cheered when plumber Scott Smith was crash-tackled by police and humiliated at a school board meeting on June 22 as he tried to raise the plight of his 15-year-old daughter, who he says was raped and sodomized in the school bathroom by a boy in a skirt. No one expressed any concern for his daughter.
There was no compassion, either, from superintendent Scott Ziegler, who claimed bafflingly at the meeting that there had been no assault in a school restroom anywhere in Loudoun County and airily dismissed parents’ concerns about the risks of transgender bathrooms. Then he gave a little woke homily to show those powerless parents in the room who really was in charge.
“Time magazine in 2016 called that a red herring … we’ve heard it several times tonight from our public speakers but the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist,” he said.
Tell that to the Smith family.
The rainbow activist who allegedly threatened Smith’s livelihood at that meeting told him point-blank his daughter’s rape three weeks earlier did not happen, as if she would know.
He raised his voice and called her a “bitch.”
Scott Smith’s story of his daughter being raped by a boy in a skirt in a school bathroom was dismissed at a school board meeting before he was hauled off by cops.
For that mild response to her provocation, he was arrested. The video of his humiliation, his T-shirt ripped, his belly exposed, his pants pulled down, went viral globally.
No one cared about his shattered family.
The Soros-funded left-wing prosecutor, Buta Biberaj, reportedly a decarceration proponent, tried to get Smith jailed for his disruptive behavior.
She’s against jailing criminals but all for locking up an apolitical dad looking for accountability from a school that failed to protect his daughter.
Jeering progressives demonized and dehumanized him. They fat-shamed him on social media and toasted their success at getting him banned from the next school board meeting at which they passed their policy to turn all Loudoun County school bathrooms transgender.
Who cares if that made girls like Smith’s daughter less safe in the process?
The subterfuge might have been successful if it hadn’t been for an enterprising reporter at the Daily Wire who bothered to find out Smith’s side of the story — and a horrific tale it is.
The alleged rapist of his daughter was quietly shipped to another school, where he struck again. That’s a failure of the school system of Loudoun County, which quite obviously did not take the Smiths’ complaint seriously.
“If someone would have sat and listened for 30 seconds to what Scott had to say, they would have been mortified and heartbroken,” Smith’s attorney, Elizabeth Lancaster, told the Daily Wire.
But no one listened. Instead, Smith, 48, became the poster boy for the new “domestic terrorism” the Biden administration has concocted to destroy anyone who gets in the way of its agenda.
The left-wing activist group National School Boards Association wrote a letter to President Biden citing Smith’s case, without naming him, and urged the administration to use the Patriot Act to crack down on parents who demand a say in their children’s schools. It didn’t seem to occur to Biden that targeting disgruntled parents with legislation designed for foreign suicide bombers might be over the top.
Loudoun County didn’t bother to listen to Scott Smith’s warning as the alleged rapist of his daughter was simply sent to another school.
Five days later, on Oct. 4, the obedient Attorney General Merrick Garland issued his infamous memo that sics the FBI on parents like Smith.
Again, not a thought for Smith or his daughter.
There wasn’t a word of compassion in the statement released Wednesday by Loudoun County Public Schools. Citing privacy concerns and respect for police matters, it excused itself and school board members for their silence about the Smith debacle and the false information provided to parents.
“What’s happened to Scott Smith’s daughter and the second victim is something that could happen to all of our children,” says Smith’s friend and fellow Loudoun County parent Elicia Brand. “It’s not a transgender issue. This is a child endangerment issue.
“We don’t want politics and ideologies and agendas in school … We don’t want sexually explicitly material in schools [or] normalizing pedophilia.”
She says the reason the June 22 meeting got rowdy was because the progressive school board had “stacked the deck” by opening public speaking slots a day early so that pro-transgender bathroom activists could fill the slate.
One after the other, activists spoke in favor of the unpopular policy and traduced the majority of parents in the room as bigots. One said “hate … seems to be dripping off the followers of Jesus in this room.”
When parents in the room objected, the board threatened to close the meeting and instructed them to use “jazz hands” — silent gestures instead of cheering, jeering or clapping. Then the anti-Jesus speaker was reallocated her time so she could repeat the hateful remark.
When former Sen. Dick Black finally had a chance to speak, he said it was “absurd … for teachers to call boys girls, and girls boys” and lamented that Loudoun County schools were “teaching children to hate others because of their skin color.” The crowd gave him a rousing cheer instead of using jazz hands. So the board closed down the meeting, causing uproar.
Caught amid this Kafkaesque nightmare was a father trying to protect his daughter. Too bad. He’s an inconvenient reproach to the perverted equity agenda, so he must be crushed like a bug.
