The Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) claimed weeks ago that a transgender student at Florence High School in Florence, Colo. had been harassing female students in the bathroom and locker rooms.
However, that claim was debunked by the school’s Superintendent Rhonda Vendetti, who stated, "There has not been an incident of harassment, or anything that would cause any additional concern.”
The PJI then quickly reworded its false claim, reported Salon.com:
After having its lie exposed, PJI issued a statement explaining that the very presence of a transgender teenager in the girls’ bathroom is “inherently intimidating and harassing,” and, in a separate statement, said the organization would be “standing by our allegations.”
Now, the PJI is trying to paint the families who oppose the transgender teen as victims by claiming Florence High School officials have told parents that police are going to monitor their social media discussions.
According to a new PJI press release, “In a twist of irony, school officials who have been under fire for disregarding student privacy rights are now warning complaining families that law enforcement will be monitoring social media discussions about their concerns.”
Oddly, the PJI has not objected to the NSA monitoring millions of Americans' phone calls and emails.
The press release also states: “Since we first broke this story, it has been shocking to see the lengths to which school officials and LGBT activists have gone to suppress the truth,” stated Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute. “We have now received a large and growing stack of hate mail from supposedly tolerant LGBT supporters, most of which is based on unquestioning faith in school officials who have proved to be untrustworthy."
However, as noted above, it is the PJI which had to change its harassment story.
The PJI also released a video of "the story of girls whose privacy rights have been violated" supposedly by the transgender teen (who is now reportedly on suicide watch because of the PJI's accusations).
