Across the country we’ve seen school districts flip as more and more parents get involved.
It first started when parents demanded teachers get back in the classroom and start teaching again. Overtime, pressure from parents forced districts to reopen except in extreme blue areas.
As if to punish parents for forcing them to go back to school, districts started implementing strict COVID requirements forcing students to be shielded with plexiglass and draconian mask mandates.
Parents started to challenge school districts as we reported a few months ago:
Many parents then began to protest mask order (mainly for elementary school kids), seeing the negative effects their children were experiencing from having to wear them constantly. In mass they started showing up at school board meetings because (thanks to the vaccines and herd immunity) transmission in many of their communities were low.
That’s when things started to heat up.
School Board members started walking out of meetings, refusing to meet with parents claiming it was a security risk. School officials started using the police to break up protests and arrest people who refused to wear masks. Under the covers of the CDC school officials claimed they are merely following guidelines and will wear masks the remainder of the current school year.
In response we’ve seen school boards in Democrat controlled suburbs get flipped, however in other communities we’ve seen grandmothers arrested and (sad to say) police in some areas try to bully parents into leaving school board meetings.
Parents have also began to fight the liberal machine over the implementation of CRT and now the left is in full panic mode. They are losing their hold on local school districts and in response are asking the Biden Administration to use the Patriot Act against parents exercising their rights.
CEO of the National School Boards Association wrote a letter to President Joe Biden demanding that the White House label parents that disagree with school board officials domestic terrorists.
“As these threats and acts of violence have become more prevalent,” they said, “during public school board meetings, via documented threats transmitted through the U.S. Postal Service, through social media and other online platforms, and around personal properties — NSBA respectfully asks that a joint collaboration among federal law enforcement agencies, state and local law enforcement, and with public school officials be undertaken to focus on these threats.”
The letter adds, “NSBA specifically solicits the expertise and resources of the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Secret Service, and its National Threat Assessment Center regarding the level of risk to public schoolchildren, educators, board members, and facilities/campuses.”
“As these acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials have increased,” the group’s letter to the president said, “the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes. As such, 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.”
The White House has show interest in going after parents protesting school districts.
“We take the security of public servants and elected officials across the country very seriously,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters this week . “And obviously, these threats to school board members is horrible. They’re doing their jobs.”
