One of the most controversial actions that the Biden administration took in 2020 was to solicit a letter from the National School Board Association (NSBA) that likened conservative parents to domestic terrorists, and this letter continues to deeply trouble parents who spoke with Fox News.
According to Marvin of Florida, parents are simply looking out for their children, which motivates the protests.
“That’s the number one priority, their children, ’cause they are the future for tomorrow,” Marvin remarked.
In 2020, Miguel Cardona, the Education Secretary for the Biden administration requested a letter from the NSBA that likened parents protesting extremist curriculum to domestic terrorists.
The NSBA also stunningly suggested that the Patriot Act should be used against parents fomenting protests, per an email exchange that was initially reported by Fox News. In the email, it is clear that Cardona’s involvement in the NSBA letter was significantly more intensive than previously assumed.
Within days after the NSBA letter, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland sent a memo to the FBI that ordered the agency to mobilize support for local education officials, including controversial school board members. Over the course of testimony in October, Garland claimed he never applied the “domestic terrorist” label to parents, nor did he ever threaten to use the Patriot Act.
Some teachers have spoken out in defense of parents, with Debbie, an educator from Pennsylvania, weighing in on Garland’s stunning action.
“That’s totally ridiculous,” Debbie remarked to Fox News, adding that parents always “have rights for their children.”
“They should be standing up for their children and [the curriculum] being taught in the classrooms,” she added.
Debbie also observes that labeling parents as domestic terrorists while ignoring the antics of Antifa speaks volumes about the current state of affairs.
“If [parents are] going to be labeled domestic terrorists, what are we going to label Antifa?” Debbie queried, noting that they should be labeled domestic terrorists.
However, Steven of Florida has remarked that some individuals are going to school board meetings with the intention of causing trouble, noting that he is anxious about the direction the nation is presently heading.
Recalling how “people used to talk with each other,” Steven observes that people are now divided along the lines of who they voted for in 2020. For instance, someone who voted for Trump may refuse to speak to someone who voted for Biden, and vice versa.
“It’s scary,” Steven remarked.
