Wake County middle school shows video promoting looting and violence

From Wake County school board candidate Steve Bergstrom:

A profanity-laced video encouraging the looting and violence in America as a means of protest, was shown to a Wake County 8th grade class at Moore Square Middle last week during a Civics class. In this YouTube video, an activist rails against the economic disparities she sees in America, and says looters are “shooting their shot”; the means justify the ends.

“This is a clear political agenda being practiced in the classroom, teaching youth that destruction is a means to an end,” said District 8 School Board Candidate Steve Bergstrom. “The video’s presenter demonizes the American economic structure, justifies looting and violent rioting, and does so with language and anger that I would never allow my 7th grade son to watch.”
