A superintendent of an Oklahoma school district is calling for the immediate termination of a recently hired elementary school principal who performs as a drag queen and has faced child pornography charges in the past.
Dr. Shane Murnan, 52 — who performs as Shantel Mandalay at a venue called the Boom, hosting Thirsty Thursday and Sunday Night Karaoke, and who participates in drag queen story hour with children — was named the new principal of John Glenn Elementary, Fox News Digital reported.
Ryan Walters, the school district’s superintendent, said this is a move to indoctrinate children with harmful Marxist ideology and a way to pit children against their parents.
“I hear from parents every day that are concerned with this woke left-wing indoctrination of schools, this gender theory that continues to be thrust upon our kids,” Walters told Fox New Digital. “It’s completely inappropriate.”
The child pornography charge brought against Murnan was dropped more than 20 years ago during a preliminary hearing when it could not be confirmed if the photos on his electronic devices depicted minors, Fox News Digital reported. Western Heights Public Schools acknowledges Murnan’s past charges but praises him for his “outstanding reputation” in the education field.
