The absolute contempt toward parents by government “education” officials at all levels can no longer be hidden or ignored. In recent weeks, top Biden administration officials have claimed parents are not the primary stakeholder in their children’s education. In fact, outraged parents are now being targeted by the regime as “domestic terrorists.” And this is just the start.
Perhaps the most alarming development came when Department of Justice, responding to a request by the National Association of School Boards (NASB), issued a memo painting outraged parents as “domestic terrorists.” Indeed, after ignoring months of actual domestic terror by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the FBI is being mobilized against angry moms concerned about their children.
“NSBA requests a joint expedited review by the U.S. Departments of Justice, Education, and Homeland Security, along with the appropriate training, coordination, investigations, and enforcement mechanisms from the FBI,” the school board association wrote to the Biden regime in its request to have parental protests classified as terrorism and hate crimes.
The NASB also requested “any technical assistance necessary from, and state and local coordination with,” the FBI’s National Security Branch and Counterterrorism Division, as well as any other federal agency with relevant jurisdictional authority and oversight.” In other words, outraged moms and dads should be targeted like al Qaeda and ISIS.
The fact that the organization representing school boards would paint concerned parents as terrorists is outrageous enough. But to make matters worse, radical leftwing U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland ordered the Justice Department and FBI to get right on it.
Without citing a single specific example or actual threat, Merrick issued a memo this week claiming to be concerned about an alleged “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.”
He went on to argue that parents were trying to “intimidate” school-board officials. “Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values,” Merrick said. “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.”
Merrick and the corrupt DOJ he leads laid out an action plan for terrorizing parents by portraying them as terrorists. They said the FBI and U.S. attorneys across America would be hosting meetings with state and local officials to discuss “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.”
Parents and sane education leaders were flabbergasted. “I am what a domestic terrorist looks like?” wondered concerned Virginia mother Asra Nomani, vice president of investigations and strategy at Parents Defending Education. “You owe parents an apology!”
When not portraying parents as terrorists and haters, top Biden officials are painting them as superfluous. Consider the testimony of U.S. “Education” Secretary Miguel Cardona last week. When asked whether parents should be the “primary stakeholders” in the education of their children, Cardona dropped a bombshell.
“I believe parents are important stake-holders but I also believe that educators have a role in determining educational programming,” the chief of miseducation for the Biden regime said, shocking lawmakers. Translated, that means government will be the “primary stakeholder,” and parents can hop in the back seat.
The remarks were similar to those made not long before that by Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe in a recent debate. “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach,” he said in response to comments by the GOP candidate that parents should be in charge of their children’s education.
The real terrorists are those who want moms and dads out of the way. There is no hiding from it anymore: The regime in Washington and its acolytes across the nation want to brainwash your children in government indoctrination centers, and anyone who interferes will be targeted.
Parents must double down and rescue their children before they lose not just their kids, but their country and their freedom as well. The stakes are that high. And no amount of intimidation or bullying from Biden and company can get in the way of saving America’s kids — and its future.
