On October 4, 2021, U.S. Attorney General Merrick B. Garland issued a directive to FBI and U.S, Attorneys offices to come up with a plan to handle parents who speak out and stand up
at school board meetings.
When this hit the news, parents, citizens, and school boards across the nation were outraged.
The Attorney General's actions were said to be generated from a letter sent to the White House from the National School Board Association. The letter was indeed a call for action to the top officials to do something about, what the letter referred to as domestic terrorists.--aka concerned parents.
Some where around 20 state school boards have since separated themselves from the National School Board Association in distaste of their letter:
Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wyoming.
This must have turned some heads because the National School Board Association has issued an apology letter. Some say its a little too late. Some say the apology comes only after the dirty deed did not get the reaction they had hoped for. It could be hard to believe this to be a genuine apology seeing how the words in the letter were real and were clearly how they (the Association) felt; they just did not expect this amount of backlash.
"We regret and apologize for the letter,” the National School Board Association said in a
letter sent to members on Friday. “To be clear, the safety of school board members, other public school officials and educators, and students is our top priority, and there remains important work to be done on this issue. However, there was no justification for some of the language included in the letter.”
Americans need to be on guard, the voices of the American people are being attacked all over this country. The National School Board Association would like to silence those who oppose their agenda. What is their agenda?- that's a good question.
