One parenting leader is speaking out after Attorney General Merrick Garland sent a memo from the Department of Justice to the FBI to address “threats of violence” from parents.
Asra Nomani joined “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday morning wearing a T-shirt with the words, “I’m a mom, not a ‘domestic terrorist.'”
“It’s outrageous what the federal government is doing now,” said Nomani, who is vice president for strategy and investigations for Parents Defining Education.
“We have parents right now waking up from sea to shining sea to bring their children to school, to urge them into the day, and what has happened now is that the federal government and the National School Board Association has declared a war on parents,” she said.
Nomani responded that the only goal of parents is to speak up for their children.
“All we have done over the past year is stand up and speak up for children. It’s unconscionable that the Federal Bureau of Investigations should even spend a minute thinking about us,” she said.
“We all reject violence and all we want to do is protect our kids,” Nomani added.
Nomani’s interview followed a letter Garland sent to the FBI on Monday. “In recent months, there has been a disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence among school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff who participate in the vital work of running our nation’s schools,” the attorney general wrote.
“The Department takes these incidents seriously and is committed to using its authority and resources to discourage these threats, identify them when they occur, and prosecute them when appropriate,” Garland said.
In a letter to President Joe Biden last month, the National School Boards Association pleaded with him to treat parents who oppose mask mandates and the teaching of critical race theory as domestic terrorists.
The NSBA letter 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.”
Parents are no longer the good guys. We’re the bad guys. The school boards are no longer the bad guys introducing radical views and insane mask mandates. They are the victims. That’s the new Biden plan to stop American parents from standing up for the rights of their children.
What’s next? California’s Gov. Gavin Newsom may have just given us a preview. He has now announced all students 12 years old and up will be required to take the COVID-19 vaccine to attend school. It won’t be valid until the FDA approves the vaccine for this age group, likely in 2022, but it’s coming soon.
These policies may be coming to other states as well. The time to stand up for your kids and grandkids was yesterday. Let’s just hope we’re not too late to help before the Bidenistas start jailing parents who stand up for their kids.
This is no longer a battle we can sit and watch. It’s an issue that requires our involvement before our option to get involved is no longer an option.
