Republican Party Joins Call For Protest Against Beaver School District – Counter-Protests Planned

The Beaver County Republican Committee is urging party members to protest tonight against the Beaver Area School District, while counter-protests are being planned by groups that feel the district is being unfairly targeted. Beaver resident Luke Berardelli organized the initial protest, claiming the school has been persecuting district employees who belong to the “Young Life”…

If their own publications proclaim them as discriminatory, then what is the point of Berardelli denying it?
And if the rally isn’t about their assumption that the Principal was fired for being a member of this discriminatory group, then what is it about ? Just firing up angry old white evangelicals who scream discrimination while they want others to sanction their own discrimination.

I thought the principal the Republicans are protesting for was named in the lawsuit filed in Ambridge by the families of girl students who were taken advantage of by students. Do Republicans know for sure that isn’t why this guy was suspended?

Christiana is trying to use this issue to divide the public and drum up support for Rothfus who wants to join forces with Paul Ryan to cut Social Security and Medicare before the end of the year. Then you have PA Republicans who are pushing for school choice which would ruin Beaver school district.

This protest is based purely on an assumption. Perhaps they are convinced the truth won’t come out because it’s a personnel issue. We might never know if Mr. Wellendorf was suspended for hiding an underage drinking offense at a school function. One thing we all know, high school students never drink at school functions, right? Especially in Beaver.

So members of the BC GOP committee are already distancing themselves from Luke’s assumptions as to why the principal at Beaver is on paid leave of absence. From everything I have read, Luke has made nothing but assumptions. Between his facebook post and the article that he had published in the Beaver County Times, it appears that he is doing this all for himself and his own agenda. It’s too bad that he is creating such a distraction for the faculty, staff, administration and students at that school. Instead of vague assumptions I would love for Luke and his followers to show proof of the poor leadership at Beaver. From what I understand, the school is thriving on many levels under Dr. Rowe. Sure, not all people may agree with what she does, but she and the board appear to be looking out for the best interest of the school district and the kids who attend those schools. And JP, while I respect your reporting of this issue….I have seen a call for people to attend the meeting but not a counter protest. Though after that comment by Janet Hedge, I wouldn’t blame them if they did have one.

This was posted in the comments yesterday on the Beavercountian. I believe this is a counter protest.

The contents of this article are extremely unsettling to me, and I’m sure to many of you as well. These comments are literally saying they want to fire Rowe because she’s gay and atheist, and that they know Wellendorf is a catalyst to push for religion in schools. We must not allow these blatant homophobic ideologies represent the core values that many of us stand by everyday. Let’s take a stand to this protest and show them that this hatred does not represent what the people of Beaver stand for. Make a change at the flagpole at Beaver HS at 6:00 pm Monday (tomorrow) wear rainbow

We have moved into some weird alternate reality where far too many “adults” act like whiny little children. I find all of this bizarre.
