You may remember back in October when the National School Boards Association (NSBA) wrote a letter to the Department of Justice asking the officials there to view parents complaining at school board meetings as “terrorists.”
The letter was very controversial and was criticized heavily at the time, as was the response by Attorney General Merrick Garland, who used the letter as an excuse to create a team to target parents speaking up at school board meetings about issues like Critical Race Theory and transgender education in schools.
Now it has been revealed that the impetus for the letter was Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona himself, who had written to the NSBA asking for them to write to Garland. The Daily Mail reports:
President Biden’s Education Secretary Miguel Cardona apparently solicited the controversial letter from the National School Boards Association that said threats made by protesting parents should be taken as seriously as domestic terrorism, according to emails released on Tuesday.
The NSBA, in an internal memo sent on October 12, revealed that they had held discussions with White House officials before sending the much-criticized letter to President Joe Biden.
Attorney General Merrick Garland later said the letter, setting out worries about threats, was the starting point for plans for a task force to protect members of school boards.
Now, emails obtained by Parents Defending Education through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, suggest that Cardona himself was part of the process that led to its production.
In an exchange on Oct. 5 email, NSBA Secretary-Treasurer Kristi Swett wrote that the group’s interim chief executive Chip Slaven ‘told the officers he was writing a letter to provide information to the White House, from a request by Secretary Cardona.’
‘Should this allegation be true, it would reveal that this administration’s pretextual war on parents came from the highest levels,’ PDE President Nicole Neily told Fox News Digital, which was first to report on the emails.
Action Line: If your school board is teaching your kids everything except math, English, science, and history, and you’re called a terrorist when you ask them why, it’s time to look for a better America today.
