If all goes according to plan the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Alaska will soon launch a concerted campaign to advance the most radical political elements of the LGBTQIA2S+ agenda in the deeply conservative Mat-Su Valley.

This cultural offensive entails hiring a full-time activist organizer who will be 100% dedicated to so-called “queer and trans justice issues.”

According to a job description for the $55,000-a-year gig, with full benefits, the community organizer will “coordinate community action in response to attacks on LGBTQIA2S+ Rights” by monitoring and attending public meetings, organizing events,  recruiting new activists, building networks, identifying and training local spokespeople to effectively share personal stories, strategizing concrete goals and objectives, facilitating events that “elevate queer joy” and tracking data points.

In order to work for the ACLU, the activist must be fully on board with the organization’s Covid protocols, which includes proof of a mandatory vaccination or a medical or religious exemption.

The ACLU is already actively weighing in on Mat-Su politics by filing a lawsuit against the Mat-Su School Board’s decision to review and possibly remove graphic sexualizing books from area schools. It has also been an outspoken opponent of the Mat-Su School District’s policy banning gender-confused male athletes from competing as females in girls’ high school sports.

    Here we go. We pissed off the demons. God Almighty, please provide us with the endurance to stand steadfast against the evil attacks against our children and young adults.

    • Mom of Liberty says:

      Let them try. The louder they get, the more it wakes people up. I’m glad they are making a spectacle in the courts system with the school board. The ACLU is showing the property owners in the valley that it doesn’t care about wasting tax dollars on frivolous and baseless lawsuits. Continuing down this path of blatantly ramming this ideology that parents and citizens do not want here will only cause the resistance response to be stronger and louder. Bring it on.

      • Jake Libbey says:

        I agree utterly. The louder they get the more shrill and obvious they are in their goals, the more parents will wake up to finally put a stop to this nonsense. Well said.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        I agree with you! I pray for God to give us the endurance and not give up. If people give up and stop participating in this fight, there is less positive energy to keep going. If people are constantly attacking and name-calling the people on their own side, it does not help when people are already dealing with all of the chaos around us and trying to maintain some semblance of normality in their lives.

      • Mark Kelsey says:

        Nonsense. At least two of the three current lawsuits were easily avoidable. If anyone is demonstrating reckless irresponsibility its the school board with its devotion to a hateful and divisive Outside agenda. Expect a fourth lawsuit, too, with the board’s complete unwillingness to address Open Meetings Act violations.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Mark Kelsey, you speak nonsense about the current events. It is true that the lawsuits could have been easily avoided; if the evil would just accept that the Creator of all life has already won this battle, we’d be done already and there would not be any lawsuits. There are many people in the MSB who support the school board in their decisions and we support going to court if this is what needs to happen. Mark Kelsey is a sue-happy fool.

  • FreedomFred says:

    Bring it! The left wing Antifa radicals are after your kids, business and boards trying to change anything and everything good in the Valley. Everything this group touches turns to s(poop)t!

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    This will help expose how spineless and useless the conservatives are in this state. I have tried to reinforce the backbone of “our” conservative movement. I have concluded that for the time being it’s a fruitless effort! Evil organizes, while conservatives, especially the pew sitters being directed from the pulpits do nothing! I dare you to prove me wrong!

  • John J Otness says:

    Its great to hear voices gather to object as they did when the perverse overthrew Anchorage but as long as we just follow the rules while the enemy attacks, the enemy will win. We allowed this. This ACLU is not a benevolent group they are a left-wing organization seeking our destruction – cloaked in lies.
    Soft terror is planted and spread. We must realize that the distribution of these groups LGBTQRST ANTIFA BLM are jus Soros paid terrorists that have one goal – to destroy this nation. This is another bolshevik revolution. Don’t forget the attack on our food supply destroying hundreds of storage and production plants.
    Kid gloves may allow us to live another day, but our children will live as slaves.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Good statements! In addition, while we are distracted by this demon infested ACLU group, our natural gas and oil are in the stages of eventually being shut down. A lot going on. It smells, acts and looks exactly like a Bolshevik revolution! I honestly believe that we have to have groups organized and working on different tasks. It is a shame that our “elected” reps have sold us out. But, this is where the people need to organize. There are some people here that understand the system quite well and could be organizers. There are groups that have organized and are working on projects. We need this type of organization for all of the issues. Not just one small group trying to put out all fires; but, multiple, organized groups. For this issue, Moms of Liberty are organized and growing. God bless them and their active role in our community!

    > by monitoring and attending public meetings

    They are hiring a commissar.

    We were told tolerance for this deviant minority group was so they could live quiet lives of peaceful dignity. So that they could be visited in hospital by a loved one. So they could have life insurance. And so on.

    And here we are 10+ years later and it was all a lie. Look at the many negative effects on our society and especially on children. And in the end for what? So adults could have sex? What a low bar. What a low quality. We have elevated sex to an idol or altar that many worship. This is wrong and lacks wisdom.

    Maybe this is why across almost all cultures and time this deviant behavior has been regulated to the shadows and on the down low. Maybe that is were it ought to remain. We ought to strongly protect children and childhood and have the severest of penalties for those who steal and/or destroy this.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Oh but Micah didn’t you see the severe “ letter of instruction “ our conservative Attorney General wrote to all the stake holders ( librarians are breaking the law)! It was soooo encouraging!!! Our conservative movement produces no protection, just letters written on the finest tax paid for stationery! I think it’s time for another happy homily brought to you by Campbells the CHICKEN soup company!

    • DaveMaxwell says:

      I present to you your leaders, pay particular attention to who endorses, and who is hosting. The results are shameful!

  • Bess says:

    They’re so confident in their mission to destroy the Valley that they’re letting us in on their plan. If anyone has formed a counter attack, please let conservatives know. I will be the first to show up.

  • Jen says:

    We’ll see what happens. . . To be continued. . .

  • Pat says:

    ACLU needs to be taking to court for taking away the rights of the majority for a select few. Why aren’t they sranding up for women sports or the protection of females in restrooms or locker rooms. What happened to woman’s rights.

  • Susan Weir says:

    And who is the head of the ACLU in Alaska? None other than Mara Kimmel, wife of the actor Ethan Burkowitz. She also wants to certify her welcoming city status on Anchorage that she started in 2014, making Anchorage a sanctuary city for illegal aliens. This woman is POISON!

  • Bess says:

    Can anyone provide information on the aforementioned Moms of Liberty in the Valley? I’m interested in being a part of this fight!

    This is a wonderful way to teach the alphabet! Impressive memorization skills!

  • Jacquelyn Goforth says:

    There is a plan to hire a full-time activist in the Mat-Su Valley? To work on something called queer and trans justice issues? I almost thought this article was satire…

    There must really be something here in Matanuska-Susitna Valley that the leftist/progressive/Marxist/socialist political agenda wants. I wonder what it could be??
    I confess. I know what it is. Anyone hearing the chants of the New York marchers at the PRIDE parade of Friday, June 24, 2023 already knows, too. Look up a video (Newsweek has one). Watch it yourself. “We’re here! We’re queer! We’re coming for your children!”

    Matanuska-Susitna valley is a place where American values still stand strong. Biology is a long recognized scientific fact. Children do not belong to the “state”. Parental Rights is not just a phrase. It’s every parent’s right and responsibility to nurture, raise, and protect their child – and that means both FATHER and MOTHER have that right.

    Commitment to upholding parent’s rights to protect their children is not something that can be purchased with a career title, a salary, or another political position.

    Ever hear of the word relentless? That is what Matanuska-Susitna Valley is.
    We are not going to allow Parent’s rights to be ignored. We won’t allow books with indecent graphic sexual content to entice children. We won’t allow rights to be trampled on by anyone.
    We are relentless.
    And nobody has to pay us.
