Earlier today we told you about the sudden departure of former GLBT Youth In Iowa Schools Taskforce executive director Nate Monson. It was difficult to find out why Monson left and where he was now.

But after a brief stint in the Oregon Legislature as an officer, it was revealed he was terminated by GLBT Youth In Iowa Schools Taskforce. There were concerns about harassment and racism as well as financial issues.


GLBT Youth In Iowa Schools Taskforce is commonly referred to as Iowa Safe Schools. It is an organization working to indoctrinate Iowa students when it comes to LGBTQ issues. They’ve been highlighted here plenty before for a 2015 conference that one lawmaker called vile and disgusting. They’re working to ban conversion therapy. They’re hosting virtual drag queen story hours about Santa’s gay wedding — which Jesus attended no less. They’re telling kids holding hands is the same as, well, check out the list:

Oh, and they had students use the wrong restroom at the Iowa Capitol and cause problems for Iowa State Patrol.

The list could go on. And on. And on.

But as it turns out, Nate Monson was fired from GLBT Youth In Iowa Schools Taskforce. He couldn’t even be hired by another advocacy group because of those issues of harassment and racism.

Monson for years was a darling of the political Left in Iowa. No doubt a go-to for media like The Des Moines Register.

Imagine, for a moment, if someone in a similar position as executive director was terminated from a conservative outfit like The Family Leader and it was because of issues with harassment and racism.

The leftists in the mainstream media would have gotten to the bottom of it as quickly as possible.

But almost one year after Monson was terminated from GLBT Youth In Iowa Schools Taskforce and we still have crickets.


Why hasn’t the media asked what happened to Monson? Or do they know and just not want to report it?

The organization was provided plenty of taxpayer dollars, mostly through grants. Iowans deserve to know what the heck happened — especially considering reports of financial issues with the organization.
