Oklahoma District Hires Drag Queen as Elementary School Principal

Parents have been expressing their outrage after an Oklahoma district hired a drag queen to be an elementary school principal.

Western Heights School District is facing a severe backlash for hiring Shane Murnan, aka “Shantel Mandalay,” as the principal of John Glenn Elementary School.

The State of Oklahoma’s Superintendent Ryan Walters has called for the district to “immediately” terminate the drag queen.

“It’s outrageous to have a drag queen running a school, you know, here in Oklahoma that doesn’t line up with Oklahoma values,” Walters told Fox News.

“I hear from parents every day that are concerned with this woke left-wing indoctrination or schools, this gender theory that continues to be thrust upon our kids.

“It’s completely inappropriate.”

Murnan maintains a separate Facebook page under the name “Shantel Mandalay” where he promotes adult themes and events.

According to the page, Murnan was employed as a drag queen at a sex club called “The Boom,” a venue which he promotes.

“This individual is not fit to lead a school district,” Walters said. “It has to stop.”

Dressed as a drag queen, Murnan has read books to children to celebrate Pride for the Metropolitan Library System.

Walters warns that the gender ideology integration in K-12 education is part of a larger Marxist agenda of the radical Left.

“I think that the left has absolutely an agenda for our kids, that they are at war with our kids in the classroom,” he said.

“What they are doing is injecting this ideology for an end goal here.

“Their end goal is to absolutely break down a child’s mind, break down the classroom, break down the family, and you see the results that have come from this.

“They want kids to turn on their parents and only listen to their leftist ideology.”

Walters explained how the Left’s agenda is turning children against their parents.

“And how do you do it?” he said.

“You start…. breaking them apart and say, listen, you’re gender-fluid.

“Listen, you can change your pronouns….

“Look at the sexual material.

“When the kid takes it home and their parent is outraged by it, the kids turn on their parents.

“This is absolutely trying to break down that family unit, so the kid is more susceptible to the most radical Marxist gender ideology we’ve ever seen to pit groups of people against each other.

“And frankly, it’s to create Democrat voters.”

“No parent wants to send their kids to school knowing that they could be exposed to this radical gender theory in any capacity,” Walters added.

“This woke war on our kids has to stop.

“We will not allow it in Oklahoma.

“This is the liberal insanity that every parent wants out of the classroom,” Walters added.

“We will not allow our kids to be part of their radical-left game for pushing ideology and furthering their end goal, which is creating social justice warriors instead of students that understand how education is a path for success for them.

“We will not allow it. This will stop.”

The drag queen principal also has previous charges for child pornography, which were later dismissed.

Fox News found records from over 20 years ago, showing that when the charges were filed, all of Murnan’s electronic devices were subject to a subpoena.

According to a local report that covered the story, the charges were dismissed because it could not be proven that the images were of individuals under the age of 18.

In a post on its Facebook page, the district acknowledged the prior charges.

It said, “Recently we were made aware of previous charges that were dismissed years ago.”

“We are very excited about his vision for John Glenn and for the community,” the district added.
