FBI Whistleblower Reveals Biden DOJ Activated Counterterrorism Division Against Protesting Parents, by Tyler Durden

Somehow the Counterterrorism Division overlooked the groups spearheading the riots in the summer of 2020, although they were certainly spreading terror. Are pissed off parents griping at school board meetings in the same league? The question answers itself. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

House Republicans in the Judiciary Committee have sent a Tuesday letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland after an FBI whistleblower provided ‘a protected disclosure’ revealing that “the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division is compiling and categorizing threat assessments related to parents, including a document directing FBI personnel to use a specific “threat tag” to track potential investigations.”

The evidence – an email sent the day before Garland testified on October 21 – “referenced your October 4 directive to the FBI to address school board threats and notified FBI personnel about a new “threat tag” created by the Counterterrorism and Criminal Divisions.

“This disclosure provides specific evidence that federal law enforcement operationalized counterterrorism tools at the behest of a left-wing special interest group against concerned parents,” the letter continues.

The new information directly contradicts Garland’s sworn testimony.

‘Teaching Kids About Race & Gender? by Chris Sweeney

Criticizing any of the garbage that nowadays passes for education at a school board meeting makes one a domestic terrorist. The U.S. needs a lot more of such domestic terrorism. From Chris Sweeney at lewrockwell.com:

The teaching of critical race theory’s a controversial topic for many US schools, and one parent’s seemingly innocuous enquiry about it has really lifted the lid on the whole can of worms.

Four months ago, Rhode Island mom Nicole Solas, 38, asked the principal of her child’s kindergarten whether the kids would be learning about critical race theory (CRT). Not all parents in the US are happy about its being taught, with some being concerned it focuses on skin colour rather than individual merit, and thereby creates the very institutional racism its teaching is supposed to eradicate.

Solas’ concerns, however, went deeper. She also asked the principal whether the children were going to learn about gender theory.

And it turns out they would be,” she told RT. “They said they don’t call kids ‘boys’ and ‘girls’, and they don’t use gendered terminology. [As for] the First Thanksgiving, they ask kids what could have been done differently.”

When Solas pressed for more detail, she was told to submit public records requests. She believed it was all just part of the bureaucratic process, but things changed when she filed her paperwork.

My school then threatened to sue me, as they thought I’d submitted too many requests. They bullied and harassed me in a public meeting. They treated me like I was having a show trial and ultimately decided not to sue me,” she explained. “But then a month or so later, the National Education Association, which is the largest teachers’ union in America, did sue me. They’re suing me to prevent the disclosure of public information that would come out of my public records requests, as they’re claiming teachers are going to be harassed if we know they are teaching CRT.

A court hearing has been scheduled for December. However, for Solas, that was only the start, as she felt allegations had been made about her character on American TV. As a result, she moved her daughter to a private Catholic school. She said, “I made a decision to remove her from public school the moment my school hired a PR firm to defame me in the national media and imply that I’m racist on Fox News.

Buzz Off, Attorney General Garland. Furious School Parents Will Not Be Silenced. Updated. by Mark Glennon

Pretty soon they’ll be chanting F**k “Merrick Garland” at football games. From Mark Glennon at wirepoints.org:

UPDATE 10/9/21: A request has now been made for an investigation over what appears to be an orchestrated effort to silence parents at school boards and gave rise to Garland’s directive. 

It’s tempting to see the new directive by Attorney General Merrick Garland as merely a transparent attempt to intimidate parents into silence on opinions that the Biden Administrations doesn’t like. But it’s worse than that. It’s worth going though the reasons why this misconduct by federal law enforcement is so appalling, and to remind parents why they should not be deterred.

Many parents in Illinois and across the country have spoken out recently with unprecedented anger in unprecedented numbers at school board meetings and beyond. Their complaints have been about Critical Race Theory in classrooms, mask mandates and explicit materials for minors about sexuality and gender. We’ve written here often supporting some of those complaints. My colleague Ted Dabrowski and I have participated in some of the efforts directed toward our own childrens’ schools.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland

But on Monday, Garland issued a directive to the FBI and federal law enforcement officials across the nation to focus on alleged criminal conduct in protests by parents.

Outrage ensued immediately, and appropriately, from parents, their organizations and commentators who are infuriated that a threat of federal law enforcement is being used to try to scare them out of constitutionally protected speech.
