This news is wild. Last year the Nationals School Boards Association sent a letter to the DOJ asking for help. They claimed that parents were harassing them about teaching Critical Race Theory and it had gotten to the point that they felt the parents were domestic terrorists. This whole thing blew up in their faces and multiple states left the association as they were not in agreement with the slander and sentiment. But here’s the kicker, it turns out this letter was not their idea. It was in fact the Biden Administration’s Education Secretary, Miguel Cardona, who thought that calling parents domestic terrorists was a good idea. And if it had not been for a congressional hearing these parents would have likely been arrested as the Department of Justice Attorney General Merrick Garland was mobilizing the FBI.
Education Secretary Miguel Cardona is facing calls to resign after it was revealed Tuesday that, according to a National School Boards Association official, he had solicited the controversial letter from the NSBA last year that compared protesting parents to domestic terrorists.
The NSBA’s Oct. 22 letter, which it has since apologized for, called for federal action to address hostilities toward school boards as possible acts of “domestic terrorism” and suggested using the Patriot Act against parents.
President Biden’s Department of Justice relied on the NSBA letter in creating its own Oct. 4 memo directing the FBI and U.S. attorney’s offices to investigate “threats of violence” at school board meetings in order to combat what it called a “disturbing trend” of harassment of school officials.
Previous emails had revealed that the NSBA was in contact with the White House and Justice Department in the weeks before it publicly sent its letter, but an email exchange obtained by the parent’s group Parents Defending Education through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and reviewed by Fox News Digital indicates the Education Department was more involved with the letter’s creation than previously known.
In an Oct. 5 email, NSBA Secretary-Treasurer Kristi Swett recounted that NSBA interim CEO Chip Slaven “told the officers he was writing a letter to provide information to the White House, from a request by Secretary Cardona.”
A resignation would be a slap on the wrist. If this letter had not reached the public’s eye, there would have been parents arrested and slandered with the title of Domestic Terrorist, just for caring about the welfare of their child. Cardona should serve some time, be banned from public office, pay a fine, or do something to punish him for the outright nasty conduct that would have ruined countless lives.
