The National School Boards Association has now apologized for that letter labeling parents “domestic terrorists” subject to the Patriot Act if they speak up about their kids’ education. When will the White House apologize for requesting the hysterical memo, and Attorney General Merrick Garland for responding by directing the FBI to get involved?
Friday, the NSBA board repudiated the letter: “There was no justification for some of the language included” and parents’ voices should “be heard.”
It turned out the two top execs hadn’t gotten the board’s OK before sending it; they were too eager to satisfy White House aides’ urgent request for the missive.
Garland himself told Congress that no “body of evidence” shows any uptick in violence at school board meetings. (Other than the dad arrested because he rightly lost it when the Loudoun County board tried to cover up his daughter’s rape.) With the letter withdrawn, the AG is obliged to retract his public statement implying that dissenting parents should shut up or the feds might come calling.
The White House, meanwhile, needs to come clean about its own role in this outrageous bid to squelch the free speech of America’s parents.
