Democrats retreat in war on parents


SHERIFF"S DEPUTIES ARREST SCOTT SMITH FOR SPEAKING AT A SCHOOL BOARD MEETING.

A month ago, the National School Boards Association was riding high. It sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding that he investigate "domestic terrorism" by parents who say things they don't want to hear at board meetings.

Oh those poor dear school board members. Maybe they should get combat pay.

Garland complied.

The letter cited a few incidents and said, "As these acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials have increased, 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. 

"Additionally, NSBA requests that such review examine appropriate enforceable actions against these crimes and acts of violence under the Gun-Free School Zones Act, the PATRIOT Act in regards to domestic terrorism, the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, the Violent Interference with Federally Protected Rights statute, the Conspiracy Against Rights statute, an Executive Order to enforce all applicable federal laws for the protection of students and public school district personnel, and any related measure. As the threats grow and news of extremist hate organizations showing up at school board meetings is being reported, this is a critical time for a proactive approach to deal with this difficult issue."

While we are at it, why not give school board presidents nuclear weapons? Small tactical ones, of course. We would not want to overdo it.

The school boards want the full power of the federal government to silence critics and to stop people from saying things school board members do not want to hear.

What they don't want to hear is that Critical Race Theory is racist anti-white indoctrination. They don't want to hear that cloth masks don't stop any virus. And school boards really don't want to hear that a boy in a skirt raped a girl in a bathroom.

Boy do they not want to hear about that last one.

In its letter, the association cited 20 incidents. There are 14,000 school boards in America. That's a pretty paltry amount, and the cases cited were dubious.

In the letter, the organization said, "In Virginia, an individual was arrested, another man was ticketed for trespassing, and a third person was hurt during a school board meeting discussion distinguishing current curricula from critical race theory and regarding equity issues."

That was a reference to the Loudoun County School Board meeting on June 22, in which Scott Smith, 48, tried to confront the board about the rape of his daughter in the restrooms by a boy in a skirt.

The board had closed off discussion after retired state Senator Dick Black spoke. He tweeted, "The LCPS shut down the public input after the audience erupted in applause at the end of my speech.  Hundreds of parents continued to rally for hours to send the message that these CRT policies are racist.  Parents and teachers, stand up for your children now."

Smith then tried to speak. The board had deputies arrest him. That led to a scrum. He was charged with trespassing -- at a public meeting in a public building. He still faces a trial.

The board then shut down the meeting and continued the meeting the next day in private. I am not sure how Virginia's open meetings law works, but if it allows this, then the law needs to be changed.

The backlash surprised me. Democrat Terry McAuliffe fueled it. He is seeking his old job as governor back.

In a debate, he said, "I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach."

That appeased his teacher union supporters and the snob set.

But it also set in motion a process that had state school board associations withdrawing from the national board, which now has withdrawn its letter. There is no way in hell that 14,000 school boards are going to go along with branding parents domestic terrorists.

The New York Post reported, "The National School Boards Association board of directors Friday repudiated a letter its two top officials sent to President Biden, which precipitated Attorney General Merrick Garland’s order that the FBI to investigate complaints of threats to school officials from parents.

"In a message to NSBA members, the board said that 'we regret and apologize for the letter,' which was sent Sept. 29 and co-signed by association CEO Chip Slaven and President Viola Garcia."

Retired Republican Congressman Peter King of New York believes Democrats stepped on a rake this time.

King wrote, "A sleeping giant has been awakened. Parents and taxpayers are taking traditional school board issues and controversies into the political arena. As parents continue to mobilize, they can be expected to bring other child-related issues — such as school violence, open borders, and the inability to buy Christmas toys — into next year’s midterm congressional campaigns. This cannot be good news for Democrats, who will have to play defense on all these issues while being compelled to explain why the Biden administration has sicced the FBI on parents who publicly protest school policies. 

"Intended or not, this grassroots school board movement is a real-world response to the expanded influence of progressives and socialists on government and education. The awakened giant is fighting back!"

I hope that rake hits Democrats right where it hurts.

Whap!

I believe Scott Smith stepping up for his daughter triggered this. He brought reality to a school board meeting, something you cannot have when you are pushing transgenderism and the rest of their unreal garbage.

I also believe that lefty hyperbole should carry a price.

The January 6 protest at the Capitol was not an insurrection.

A boy in a skirt is not a girl.

And Scott Smith is not a domestic terrorist. He is a father who is angry that school board policy enabled a boy in a skirt to rape his daughter, and that school officials covered up this horrific crime.

  1. Perhaps a wake up call for parents to get off their butts and vote during school board elections.

    1. Not just parents, but all taxpayers. If all taxpayers (regardless of whether or not they have children enrolled in the school district) are taxed in the same way to fund "education" (sic?), then all taxpayers are equal as... stakeholders. (Great chance to swipe another lefty buzzword, too.)

    2. If parents aren't allowed in the classroom, their children shouldn't be there.

      Even having this discussion is an illegal breach of public trust, and criminal misuse of office.

    How about an order for the Executive to meet his obligations under the constitution?

    1. If the feds are truly afraid of “domestic terrorists “ at school board meetings why are they not protected at each meeting with barbed wire, concrete and national Guard? Or are only some politicians entitled. Either show me the “equity” or give it up you delusional liars. I think you stepped on the Gasden snake!

  8. I noticed that the NSBA offered "regrets and apologies" to themselves, apparently because they said these things out loud when they really "should not have" said them out loud.

    Nowhere is there an apology to the people falsely accused of domestic terrorism: the parents opposed to Marxism, racism, rape, and pseudo-scientific cultism.

    1. I had read that the the president of the NSBA did this without a discussion and approval of the national board. So they are apologizing because their board chair just pretty much wiped them out. Which is a good thing.

    2. Apologies from a leftist are empty platitudes, they will lie to your face without remorse. Ok so you apologized, this action was egregious, will you fire this person(s) and hire a grievance consulting firm to come in and retrain the rest of the board on "Tolerance" and 'Diversity' LOL

  9. OK, understand the plan was always take over the country from the grass roots wherever possible. That's why you have so many of these Lefty paradises of "right-thinking" people.

    Now the real public is in revolt. Not just over this, although this is a big part, but over the lockdown, the stolen election, being threatened (our patience grows thin), bad policy, and a bad-looking guy who makes a worse looking-girl.

    As parents continue to mobilize, they can be expected to bring other child-related issues — such as school violence, open borders, and the inability to buy Christmas toys — into next year’s midterm congressional campaigns.

    And that quote from Peter King is a killer.

    Maybe 20% of the country leans that way. The other 80% is saying, "Not just, 'No', but, 'Hell, no'".

    I believe Scott Smith stepping up for his daughter triggered this.

    Actually, I think it was the year-long lockdown that exposed what was going on in schools to parents, but, much like Ashli Babbitt, somebody got it on vid.

    The dumbest thing a dictator can do is create a martyr.

    The Ice Cream Queen doesn't get that.

    But she will. In more ways than one.

    1. Many of these things are interesting when you rummage for origins - such as "the Olympic movement" having quasi-fascist roots.

      Apparently, the modern "public school" system began as a explicitly anti-Catholic effort.

      Among other things... that might make the whole thing unconstitutional.

  13. At this point there really is no hope for public education. The bureaucrats believe you just throw more money at it and it will be fixed. The problem is the indoctrination and ideology coming up through the college and university education programs. Parents need to home school or be very selective with the Charter or Private school choices. Public education just needs to die.

  15. I would suggest that any "Boy-In-A-Skirt" got to this point because:
    - Raised by a single mother/absent father
    - Mother has had multiple "boy-friends"
    - Repeated academic problems
    - Heavy social-media use

    Not saying this is every dysfunction or in the correct order, but it's a good place to start.

  17. Threatening those threatening your children isn't domestic terrorism. It's good parenting. Make no mistake, it is absolutely legal for a parent to use threats and force in order to protect their children from anyone and anything targeting them.

  19. The police enforcing School Boards' panic over parents speaking need to step up as well. Rules of the hearing should be worked out in advance, with the School Board and audience aware of those rules. No School Board should be able to stop discussion and silence parents--who have a First Amendment right to petition the government--because they don't like what they say. Police should be on the side of speech, and not act like enforcers of edicts.
