For months now, parents have been showing up at school board meetings to speak out against what they see as far left indoctrination in public schools.
The Biden Justice Department has decided to respond by mobilizing the FBI.
Can you believe this? Concerned parents are now going to be treated basically like terrorists.
The New York Post reports:
Garland calls in FBI to counter reported threats against school staffers
Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Monday that the FBI would take the lead on the law enforcement response to what Garland called “a disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff.”
“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,” Garland wrote in a memo to federal prosecutors as well as FBI Director Christopher Wray. “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,” the AG added.
Garland fired off his memo days after the National School Boards Association (NSBA) claimed in a letter to President Biden that “America’s public schools and its education leaders are under an immediate threat.”
This is insane.
