It can’t ever be said homeschoolers aren’t involved in politics of some sort , even though it’s usually in the educational scheme of things.
In this case, a Napa-based curriculum provider is holding a homeschool conference in Sacramento and one of the speakers came on Nathan Lean’s radar:

Kolbe should rescind invitation to contoversial speaker
Robert Spencer, a Catholic deacon from New Hampshire and director of the blog Jihad Watch, is set to appear as part of a speaking lineup that includes prominent clergy and educators from all across the United States. Once the director of Kolbe Academy, where he also served as a classics teacher, his publications include “Classical Education in the Contemporary World” and “How to Introduce Your Child to Classical Music in 52 Easy Lessons.”
Jihad Watch Director, Robert Spencer, responded in the same publication:
Kolbe Academy should be standing for free speech
Lean wants the Santa Rosa diocese to rescind my invitation to speak, saying it should “follow the actions of the Boston diocese, which rescinded Spencer’s invitation to speak at a men’s conference in Massachusetts in March.”
