This Gun-Toting ‘Freedom Activist’ Is Using Thousands of Colorado Schoolchildren to Own the Libs

on Facebook

When conspiracy theorist Cindy Ficklin applied to be the headmistress in Colorado six months ago, she had a photo of herself holding a gun online.

“It was either my Glock 42 or my Glock 43,” she told The Daily Beast this week.

Ficklin had also published a letter on an alleged global conspiracy by a super-rich elite led by billionaire George Soros.

“If you don’t know who George Soros is … you are not alone – (he’s one of the monsters in the shadows),” she wrote. “Soros even seems to control the Rothchilds … (who control all the banks in the world). By the way, Bill Gates is a Rothchid. (I’ve included his family tree as evidence.) And [Anthony] Faucio sits on the board of directors of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. And Fauici is the director of the NIH (National Institutes of Health) … which controls the use of hydroxychloroquine and EVERYTHING we feed on this virus. … INCLUDING THE MASKING MANDATE – (which robs us of our identity and turns us into sheep. “

Soros does not control the Rothschilds and Gates is not a member of this fabled family. Fauci is not on the Gates Board of Trustees, and the NIH does not oversee hydroxychloroquine use, and masks save lives. This nonsense came from someone who wanted to run Mesa County Valley School District 51 and its 22,000 children, who are taught by 1,300 teachers.

No one who read Ficklin’s interlocking misunderstanding or saw the gun picture could be very surprised that the 47-year-old director turned broker didn’t get the job. It also failed in its attempt to replace the lonely Conservative of the five-member school board, a well-balanced math teacher and soccer coach named Paul Pitton.

However, she succeeded in bringing a new wave of “conservatively thinking” people into the district’s school board. And, perhaps more alarmingly, it has now targeted state legislation.

The triggering event for Ficklin was the school committee meeting on August 13, which led to Pitton’s decision to resign. The meeting was so turbulent that he and his colleagues were granted a protective police escort from the building. Anti-mandate people posing under the guise of “parental rights” were outraged when the board cut the time for public comment.

The story goes on

“People just get too crazy,” Pitton told The Daily Beast. “I think since COVID came out, it has brought out the worst in people.”

Ficklin attended the meeting as a high school parent as well as a self-proclaimed “freedom activist”. She said people were already angry about the mandates and talk about gender fluidity and the alleged doctrine of critical racial theory.

“It woke us up,” she said. “Isn’t that an ironic term?”

She says those who had scheduled a speech were outraged when the board cut the total time for public comment from 45 minutes to 35 minutes.

“It was just a noisy group that got up and said, ‘This is not okay,'” Ficklin insisted.

The board members had ended their board meeting virtually. One of them said the people who disrupted the meeting and required the evacuation were “insurgents”.

“A bad idea,” Ficklin told The Daily Beast.

Ficklin says the comment had a burning effect. The weekly “Stand for the Constitution” meeting of local conservatives at Appleton Church, which Ficklin helped organize, rose from 25 to 600. She led the effort to remove the three re-elected school board members and candidates to install according to your requirements.

“We decided that we need people who really think conservatively,” she said. “We organized and mobilized. We knocked on thousands of doors. It was completely basic. “

The choice was so tight that the outcome wasn’t certain until 4 a.m. the next day.

“We have all three,” said Ficklin. “That gives us the majority.”

Seven other Colorado county school boards also went conservative and anti-mandate, despite a mysterious COVID-19 spike filling the state hospital near the load limit. A clue as to where the new majority will take Mesa should come on Saturday at the second School Board Coffee, which has been held since it was suspended by the pandemic. Ficklin announced on Friday that she would be delivering what she called a “speech to the outgoing board members”.

“When I was the headmaster, my teachers came to me with a problem … I told them to always come up with at least one workable solution,” began Ficklin’s prepared remarks. “We have a lot of problems in the school district. And thank God we turned our blackboard so we can actually work on solving these problems. “

Parents on both sides of the great divide would agree to their demand for better teacher pay and better treatment for subs. She also points out the need for better food service and organizing parents to help. Such efforts can bring people together.

But their top priority, their first proposal under “SOLUTIONS !!!”, was divisive political.

“Start by letting go of the HIGHLY PAID Executive Director of Equity and Inclusion,” she said.

Ficklin also said, “FIRE teachers who sexualize our children … FIRE teachers who make children feel guilty.”

This apparently includes teachers who deal with topics such as race and gender identity.

Their prepared remarks touched neither masks nor vaccines. But she has spoken out against mandates of any kind. It doesn’t matter if they save lives.

“I want to fight for freedom and freedom,” she said.

And Ficklin is sure to talk about it when she begins running for House District 55 in the state legislature, a move she formulated as some kind of revenge for the school board, which rejected her and her views.

“All right. Fine. You know what? I just went ahead and filed my paperwork today, and now I’m announcing the House District 55 representative,” she said in a video posted on Facebook. “We’ll make sure this never happens happens again because this was wrong on every single level and it is not okay for the school board to do this to a community. We will see to it that we recapture this state and this country and this school district. “

She later seemed to admit that she wasn’t quite sure how to behave as a political candidate.

“I am struggling to make the transition from freedom activist to candidate,” she said in an online post. “So I decided to just be myself in all of this.”

Hey, if Mesa County can get involved, Lauren Boebert as U.S. representative from Colorado’s 3rd.

Meanwhile, Ficklin says she had no idea that some people might view her comments about Soros and his supposed cabal as anti-Semitic.

“I was very upset for about five days that anyone who talks about wealthy elite families conquering the world is anti-Semitic,” she said. “I support Israel.”

She also denied online allegations that she was a Q-Anon supporter.

“I was put in this category because I had attended various meetings that included Q-Anon conspirators,” she said. “But I’m not a Q-Anon conspirator.”

However, it is a supplier of falsehoods in a growing grassroots movement that is riddled with them and threatens what our children should learn in the sanctuaries of truth.
