Only days ago the National School Board Association asked Joe Biden to use federal anti-terror laws against parents who are protesting – and fighting – the leftist agendas of their school boards, who want to install Critical Race Theory and other indoctrination in classrooms.
Now the administration has responded with orders from Attorney General Merrick Garland to the FBI to move against those parents.
Without citing any instance of criminal activity, he cited a "disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff."
He credits them with "the vital work of running our nation's public schools," but doesn't mention at all the disputes over the leftist agenda-driven instructions being adopted, including instances that, in one school, had students play act in roles of homosexuals and transgenders seeking sex from a classmate.
Garland warned that while debate is protected under the Constitution, that protection does not extend to "efforts to intimidate individuals based on their views."
However, in one case, it was a school district that sued a parent for requesting public information under a freedom of information law, directly retaliating against her for her views.
The Department of Justice, he said, will "prosecute" events it dislikes and further, "will announce a series of measures designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel."
