There is growing concern from parents in Virginia’s Loudoun County School District that the board of education is pushing to implement far-left policies on their children.

On Tuesday, two people were arrested after the school board shut down its public comment amid rising tensions.

Fox News radio reporter Eben Brown joined 930 WFMD’s Morning News Express with Bob Miller and Ryan Hedrick Thursday to discuss the issue. Fox News has maintained a steady presence in the Washington D.C. suburb district as officials push for Critical Race Theory and transgender bathroom policies.

Hedrick suggested that the parents and the school board may be fighting a culture war.

“It certainly seems that way,” Brown said. “You have a significant number of parents whose kids attend school in Loudoun County, Virginia who have been agitated, with reason, over the whole past year and a half because they have been arguing for schools to reopen. “I think the frustrations of that on top of the fact that Loudoun County school officials may or may not be implementing Critical Race Theory may have sent things over the top.”

The Loudoun County School District is also attempting to draft a revised policy that would require teachers to address transgender students by their names and pronouns, according to The Washington Post.

“A number of parents showed up the other night expecting to partake in a public comment section,” Brown said. “Out of the 250 that showed up they only allowed 50 or so to speak and they didn’t even get through that list.”

Brown said that led to anger and when an impassioned parent began speaking the police tried dragging him out and got into a scuffle with him.

WFMD, which is located just 35 miles away from the district and has seen an increase in listeners who are concerned about the state of public school systems in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C.

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.
