As part of statements issued late last week, the chairman of the Democratic Party of New Hampshire made the claim with absolutely zero evidence that if public schools do not take strides to hide information from parents/ legal guardians concerning their kid’s behavior while at school in regards to so-called “gender identity counseling” that many parents will end up beating their kids to death.
Raymond Buckley issued the insane claims via social media on Friday evening seemingly in response to another post that pointed out the stance of Rep. Chris Pappas (D-NH).
“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?” asked the New Hampshire Journal via Twitter.
One Conservative commentator, Michael Graham, issued his own response, “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 issued a response to the post from Graham, stating: “You’re purposely going after children, endangering their lives, mental health & safety & its disgusting. 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”
“The chair of @NHDems stating clearly the party’s position is that teachers should decide what parents are allowed to know about their own children,” stated Graham. “@RepChrisPappas voted Thursday to kill a requirement schools inform parents when their kids receive counseling at school.”

The statements from Buckley took place just as Karoline Leavitt managed to secure the Republican Party primary last month for the state’s 1st Congressional District, which is currently the seat held by Pappas.
“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,” stated Leavitt in response to the post from Buckley. “The Democrats’ hatred for parents who simply want to be involved in their children’s education is disgusting. 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.”
Stephen Stepanek, the GOP chair for New Hampshire, also put forth his own response to the comments from Buckley, stating that those comments made it “clear where the New Hampshire Democratic Party stands on parental involvement in their child’s education.”
“They believe that parents have zero rights when it comes to knowing what’s going on inside the classroom,” explained Stepanek. “New Hampshire Democrats believe it is their right to raise and indoctrinate the children of our state. New Hampshire Republicans believe it is the God-given right of parents to raise their children, and that right does not stop at the classroom door.”
