Watch: After Describing Homeland ‘Ravaged by Communism,’ School Board Compels Police to Remove Woman

By

Anita Edgarian, like many West Chester, Pennsylvania, parents, attended her local school board meeting in late July to voice her concerns about critical race theory from the perspective of one who has witnessed totalitarian ideology first-hand.

However, local groups are now calling for school board president, Chris McCune, to step down after he rudely shut her comments down, grabbing the microphone away from her as she was making her comments once her allotted time was up.

“I grew up during revolution,” Edgarian said when she initially addressed the board. “My motherland has been ravaged by communism and I left the Islamic country that was hunting us down.”

The passionate mother described her new home, where her children have a diverse range of friends, as an “International House of Pancakes,” and although she said the outgoing school superintendent had done a great job for 12 years, Edgarian said he was “leaving a mess” in his wake.

“You have brought division to us!” she declared, to cheers and applause from many in the crowd. As she continued with her emphatic criticism of the direction the school board had taken, McCune, who had previously allowed parents to exceed their two minutes of speaking time or very politely urged them away from the microphone, told her, “Anita, you’re at time.”

“No, no!” she objected, to which he rudely insisted, “Yes, you are,” and stood up aggressively, walked up to her, grabbed the microphone on the podium away from her, and angrily told her to go.

Just before he snatched it away, however, she got in the final question, “I want to know, are you going to teach CRT to our teachers?”

McCune’s actions were met with boos from the audience as he tried to get Edgarian to leave. After the mother stood her ground, McCune motioned for a security officer to escort Edgarian out. The board president then angrily walked back to his seat, but not before turning to hurl more fiery remarks at Edgarian.
