It is safe to say that all across the United States parents are outraged. They are outraged at the incessant progressive indoctrination that their children are subjected to on a daily basis. This indoctrination has infected just about every school in this nation. It exists in so many different forms, the most nauseating form is Critical Race Theory. Parents are also rightly outraged over Coronavirus restrictions, such as mask mandates and vaccine mandates.
To combat this progressive indoctrination and Coronavirus mandates parents are exercising three of their most important God-given natural rights: freedom of speech, freedom to petition, and freedom to assemble. Parents are attending school board meetings to express their outrage at what is going on. Most often the school boards simply ignore the concerned parents. Couple this with the obscene level of insidious indoctrination, you get a large number of very outraged parents attending school board meetings, resulting in very heated school board meetings. At these meetings a small number of parents have crossed over the line into unlawful behavior. None of these isolated incidents have escalated beyond a point where local authorities could easily handle. All of these incidents have been very isolated and have taken place at local school board meetings. No provision of the Constitution gives the federal government the slightest authority to investigate or intervene in any of these incidents. Despite the lack of authority United States Attorney General Merrick Garland issued this MEMORANDUM FOR DIRECTOR, FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION DIRECTOR, calling on the FBI to stick its nose into this purely local phenomenon. Here is the justification for this unconstitutional and unwarranted intrusion
In recent months, there has been a disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff who participate in the vital work of running our nation’s public schools. While spirited debate about policy matters is protected under our Constitution, that protection does not extend to threats of violence or efforts to intimidate individuals based on their views.
Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values. Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety.
This is a whole load of equine excrement. There has been no spike in harassment and intimidation across the US at school board meetings. All of these incidents together do not even come close to matching all the intimidation, harassment, and outright violence perpetrated by BLM, ANTIFA, or any other darlings of the political left, not even remotely in the same universe. All of the actual leftwing violence has been steadfastly ignored by the Biden regime and the FBI.
The parents who are speaking out at these meetings are right wingers who speaking out against the nonsense being perpetrated by the political left. That is why they are being targeted now by the Biden regime.
Here is the plan outlined in this odious memorandum.
The Department takes these incidents seriously and is committed to using its authority and resources to discourage these threats, identify them when they occur, and prosecute them when appropriate. In the coming days, the Department will announce a series of measures designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel.
Coordination and partnership with local law enforcement is critical to implementing these measures for the benefit of our nation’s nearly 14,000 public school districts. To this end, I am directing the Federal Bureau of Investigation, working with each United States Attorney, to convene meetings with federal, state, local, Tribal, and territorial leaders in each federal judicial district within 30 days of the issuance of this memorandum. These meetings will facilitate the discussion of strategies for addressing threats against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff, and will open dedicated lines of communication for threat reporting, assessment, and response.
All of this is being done for one reason, to silence opposition to all of the leftwing garbage that has infected our public school system. This one sided and purely political attack by a federal government law enforcement agency goes against everything the United States stands for.
You might be wondering why the Biden regime chose to undertake this unconstitutional and unconscionable attack on parents speaking out against progressive indoctrination and mandates. It was done in response to this letter from the National School Boards Association. That association is a large and vocal leftwing lobbying group. By comparing the text of NSBA letter and the text of the Garland memorandum anyone can see who the Biden regime takes its marching orders from.
America’s public schools and its education leaders are under an immediate threat. The National School Boards Association (NSBA) respectfully asks for federal law enforcement and other assistance to deal with the growing number of threats of violence and acts of intimidation occurring across the nation. Local school board members want to hear from their communities on important issues and that must be at the forefront of good school board governance and promotion of free speech. However, there also must be safeguards in place to protect public schools and dedicated education leaders as they do their jobs.
NSBA believes immediate assistance is required to protect our students, school board members, and educators who are susceptible to acts of violence affecting interstate commerce because of threats to their districts, families, and personal safety. As our school boards continue coronavirus recovery operations within their respective districts, they are also persevering against other challenges that could impede this progress in a number of communities. Coupled with attacks against school board members and educators for approving policies for masks to protect the health and safety of students and school employees, many public school officials are also facing physical threats because of propaganda purporting the false inclusion of critical race theory within classroom instruction and curricula. 1 This propaganda continues despite the fact that critical race theory is not taught in public schools and remains a complex law school and graduate school subject well beyond the scope of a K-12 class.
