Justice Department Declares War On Millions Of Families

October 13, 2021 Frontpage No Comments


Last week, the National School Boards Association (NSBA) which calls itself “The leading advocate for public education,” wrote Joe Biden to request that the federal government launch a war against American families who oppose the massive efforts of the Left to radicalize government school classrooms nationwide.
School board members are “facing physical threats because of propaganda purporting the false inclusion of critical race theory (CRT) within classroom instruction and curricula,” the NSBA writes, insisting that CRT doesn’t even exist in government schools.
It reminds us of the time when House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D., N.Y.) insisted last year that the riots fomented throughout the country by Black Lives Matter Marxists and Antifa anarchists were a “myth.”
So CRT is a myth, and millions of parents have nothing to worry about, so shut up and go home, says the NSBA. Our opposition to CRT, “gender equity,” pornographic textbooks, and other classroom outrages has no foundation in fact. In NSBA’s version of reality, the parents’ objections constitute “acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials [that] have increased…these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.”
Since these millions of parents are all potential terrorists, the NSBA tells Biden just what he has to do:
“Given this, 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, including any technical assistance necessary from, and state and local coordination with, its National Security Branch and Counterterrorism Division, as well as any other federal agency with relevant jurisdictional authority and oversight.”
“Given this” indeed.
The NSBA’s tirade is one of literally thousands of other overwrought overtures that lobbyists deliver in Washington every day. They are routinely tossed into the round file, while the clients celebrate their indispensable contribution to the democratic process.
Not this time. Five days later, Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland wrote to the director of the FBI and U.S. attorneys throughout the country repeating almost verbatim the allegations in the NSBA letter:
“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. . . . Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values. . . . 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.”
Clearly, this exchange was carefully organized far in advance. What’s going on?
Some observers have noted that NSBA’s CEO is not an educator, but a longtime senior Democrat operative. Moreover, investigative reporters at The Conservative Treehouse reported within a day of Merrick’s memo that his son-in-law, Xan Tanner, “is the current co-founder of a controversial education service company called Panorama Education. Panorama Education is the ‘social learning’ resource material provider to school districts and teachers that teach Critical Race Theory’.” And Panorama rakes in millions from those programs.
Well. Is this just one more instance of political hacks and grifters cashing in? Admittedly, the majority of such back-scratching operations are just that: It’s the “Washington Way.”
But there is a deeper dimension here that goes beyond the love of money to the love of power — a lot of power. We recall that Garland said last June that “In the FBI’s view, the top domestic violent extremist threat comes from racially or ethically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocate for the superiority of the white race.” Now he has specifically targeted parents who reject the reverse racism of Critical Race Theory as potential criminals, if not terrorists.
And Garland’s Thought Police will use their “authority and resources to discourage” dissenters.
And why not? After all, if parents reject CRT’s branding of whites as “racists,” those parents must “advocate for the superiority of the white race.”
Case closed.
And what about the real domestic terrorists? The ones who have wrought billions of dollars of damage and dozens of deaths nationwide? Well, last week, Timothy Langan, the FBI’s assistant director of counterterrorism, told the House Committee on Oversight and Reform that the FBI did not track terrorists operating within Antifa and Black Lives Matter at all.
The FBI isn’t doing anything to curb the Coyote sex-drug-and illegal-alien traffickers on the border either, but all of its 56 field offices in the U.S. and Puerto Rico that have already been ordered to track down white supremacists, will now be recruiting informants to spy on school board meetings in every district in the country.
And they’ll be taking names. Just following orders, of course.

What’s going on here?

Virginia will elect a new governor next month, and Republican Glenn Youngkin has made strong inroads in Democrat strongholds near Washington, D.C.
In recent months parents’ groups of all political stripes have gained strong public support for challenging radical school board policies. Democrat candidate Terry McAuliffe insists that parents should have no role in deciding what is taught in the classroom, while Youngkin has supported a “families first” approach that prioritizes parental involvement.
McAuliffe is the poster boy for the entire Democrat establishment. If he loses, the festering “Prairie Fire” might finally be ignited by millions of families nationwide.
And it’s been a long time coming.
Ever since the China Virus came to our shores, Americans have been hammered with one oppressive mandate after another. We were locked down in our homes and locked out of our churches. We were masked, and distanced, and traced, and generally bossed around by bureaucrats who insisted that they were just “keeping us safe.” Government schools and other offices closed, and their employees were paid with taxpayer dollars — Even those who had no work to do.
When private businesses closed, nobody got paid. Millions of private jobs were lost. But the mandates just kept on coming, and when we complained, we were admonished to “just follow the science,” which seemed to change whenever it was found to be convenient.
Our economy, our culture, and our neighborhoods were trashed. And yet, we were intimidated, and the intimidators knew it.
So the intimidations kept coming. First the mask mandates and then the vaccination mandates, and then the passports, and then the threats: no job, no travel, no medicine, no school. With every step, Democrats became more strident, more punitive, and more hostile.
Nancy Pelosi built a stockade around Capitol Hill, symbolizing the Democrat Party’s contempt for the rest of the country. Meanwhile, Garland’s Justice Department is devoting more manpower to harassing the January 6th Capitol trespassers than it has to address the nation’s exploding crime rate, the murders of thousands of blacks in inner cities, and the real Islamic terrorists inspired by Biden’s disastrous failure and the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban.
The bottom line for the Biden administration is simple: distract us with one attack after another from their strategic takeover of the country. See it, understand it, oppose it, and we’re the terrorists.
Merrick Garland’s latest attack aims at the heart of our Faith and our culture — the family. His nationwide Stasi-style operation constitutes a crude and brutal threat to the American public: opposing the Left carries a heavy price — and it will get more expensive every day.
And like all leftists, they will not stop until they are stopped.
So we fight back.
