A parent advocacy group is speaking out against the Biden administration’s creation of a DOJ task force it says is aimed at silencing parents who speak out at school board meetings against policies like teaching critical race theory, pushing alternative genders on kids, and harshly punishing kids who don’t comply with mask policies.
Parents Defending Education emailed its members to mobilize against a “‘task force’ to silence parents who are non-violently speaking out for their children at school board meetings.”
The DOJ task force says it will address “harassment, intimidation and threats of violence” against school officials and school board members after the National School Board Association (NSBA) asked for help against what it said were parents acting like “domestic terrorists.”
The trouble is, there have been no “threats of violence” against school boards, and the Biden DOJ is twisting parents’ actions by likening them to terrorists. Parents are simply speaking out, sometimes having to shout because they are denied their chance to speak, and are in some cases saying they plan to remove (using legal means) school board members they think are not doing their jobs properly.
Here’s a new sschool anti-bullying initiative, DOJ: back off and let concerned parents make their concerns known to schools so that change can be effected where necessary.
