Like something taken straight out of a spy novel, it turns out that the FBI may have been investigating parents that spoke up at school board meetings against critical race theory (CRT) and mask mandates. In sworn affidavits to Congress, whistleblowers brought this to light.
The Gateway Pundit had this to say:
Republican Congressmen Jim Jordan and Mike Johnson received documents from FBI whistleblowers that reveal the bureau targeted parents who protested CRT and Covid rules despite Attorney General Merrick Garland’s claims it never happened.
This comes after Attorney General Merrick Garland repeatedly claimed that no such investigations were taking place. It turns out not only were they happening, he mobilized FBI resources reserved for only the most dangerous threats to our nation. The FBI Counterterrorism Unit!
According to The Gateway Pundit article, these actions took place after the National School Board Association sat down with the Biden administration.
Last fall, the National School Board Association (NSBA) coordinated with the Biden White House weeks before AG Merrick Garland classified parents “domestic terrorists” in a letter to the FBI.
The NSBA begged Biden to use federal law enforcement agencies against parents and investigate them for “domestic terrorism and hate crime threats.” They shamelessly claim the situation is so dire that he should use the Patriot Act, among other “enforceable actions” against them.
The NSBA was apparently so afraid of these concerned parents that they believed it rose to the level of terrorist behavior. The Patriot Act? Really? You want little Johnny’s mother to be surveilled and investigated like a bad guy out of an episode of Homeland?
Let’s have a look at who some of these dangerous parents are.
One mom was investigated because she belonged to a ‘right-wing group’ called “Moms for Liberty” and because she owned a gun.
Yes, correct, a law abiding mother who believes in liberty and legal gun ownership (its clearly registered if they now she has one) was subjected to a counterterrorism investigation.
Another dad who opposed masks was investigated because he fit the bill of an “insurrectionist” because he “has a lot of guns.”
And to think Merrick Garland lied about this under oath in October of last year.
AG Garland denied this was happening under oath during testimony to lawmakers.
“I can’t imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children, nor can I imagine a circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorism,” Garland said in October under oath.
It seems that these whistleblowers have blown a hole right through the Biden administrations’ lies about this and I’m pretty sure they have receipts. Here’s a picture of the letter submitted to Congress.

Kudos to Jim Jordan for having the fortitude to get to the truth. He took some time to talk about some of the developments on Fox News. You can see a clip of it here:

Response to this online has been pretty charged. You have the blue haired liberals claiming these actions were justified. After all, those parents used “mean hurtful words” when expressing their outrage about their children being indoctrinated by CRT.
So, you condone threatening education officials?
Of course you do.

I don’t see what’s so scandalous about the FBI investigating those who threaten school board officials.

Despite liberals thinking these actions are justified. The majority of American parents are mortified and outraged. It’s another example of government overreach in relation to parents and their children.
Parents daring to speak out at school board meetings have been targeted & are being investigated by the FBI’s Counterterrorism division. Merrick Garland has a lot to answer for!

What an absolute disgrace that @TheJusticeDept under Merrick Garland users to investigate Moms and Dads that protested the CRT being pushed on our children, with his attack dogs the corrupt @FBI parents being harassed using counterterrorism tactics. Targeted Parents is proven

Hopefully we get some accountability in regards to these actions. It seems unwise for government agencies to be weaponized against parents simply because they voice their opinions regarding what they feel is hurting their children.
