(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Acting chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, Raymond Buckley, made the wild claim that if public schools are not allowed to withhold information from parents regarding their child’s behavior in school—particularly in the case of “gender identity”—that parents will beat their children to death.
According to the Daily Wire, Buckley made the claim on social media, responding to a tweet initially directed at Rep. Chris Pappas, D-N.H.
“Should parents have the right to know if their children are receiving gender identity counseling at school, or is Manchester school district right to keep it secret from moms and dads?” the New Hampshire Journal asked on Twitter.
Conservative commentator Michael Graham responded, “The most interesting part of this story out of #NHPolitics is that @RepChrisPappas is unabashedly arguing that parents should NOT have the right to know about behavior of their own children.”
Buckley responded to Graham’s tweet, accusing him of endangering children.
“You’re purposely going after children, endangering their lives, mental health & safety & its disgusting,” he tweeted. “Not all families are the same, some kids will be kicked out or beaten (to death) or commit suicide. All to try to get votes for Karoline? #NHPolitics”

Buckley’s remarks also targeted challenger for New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District, Karoline Leavitt.
Leavitt, who is running against Pappas, tweeted in response to Buckley.
“The Biden administration labeled parents as ‘domestic terrorists,’ and now the chair of the New Hampshire Democrat Party is claiming Granite State parents beat their kids to death,” Leavitt said.
“The Democrats’ hatred for parents who simply want to be involved in their children’s education is disgusting,” she continued. “It’s rooted in the fact that Democrats like Chris Pappas are funded by powerful teachers unions who want total control over our public education system. While Pappas continues to side with Joe Biden and radical bureaucrats, I will continue to stand with Granite State mothers and fathers.”
Other Twitter users were also disgusted with Buckley’s blatant, dishonest emotional manipulation.
Disgusting. You’re evil. A ghoul.

Such a winning position. In my next life, being a used car salesman is a more noble profession than politics.
