Democratic Attorney General Merrick Garland’s memo urged the FBI to treat concerned parents who attended school board meetings to protest classroom materials they deemed racist and overly sexualized as a danger to the national security of the United States.
At the time, there was a movement of parents expressing their displeasure with classroom education based on “Critical Race Theory” and “Culturally Responsive Teaching,” both abbreviated as CRT. Garland surrendered his authority over the parents without ever investigating the numerous violent and fatal social justice riots in the United States, demonstrating in his memo an evident and premeditated bias towards particular groups.
“Citing an increase in harassment, intimidation and threats of violence against school board members, teachers and workers in our nation’s public schools, today Attorney General Merrick B. Garland directed the FBI and U.S. Attorneys’ Offices to meet in the next 30 days with federal, state, Tribal, territorial and local law enforcement leaders to discuss strategies for addressing this disturbing trend. These sessions will open dedicated lines of communication for threat reporting, assessment and response by law enforcement,” Garland’s disastrous, October 2021, memo read, adding:
“Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values,” wrote Attorney General Garland. “Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety.”
In addition to replacing the public workers who backed the contested curriculums in the 2022 elections, it was never made clear what risks had so frightened Garland. Garland appears to have armed the government and criminalized parental political engagement in order to aid Democrats and influence Republicans.
The Republicans in the House are now demanding answers, and the FBI has been told to cooperate and begin unraveling the true nature of the situation.

“The FBI has until March 1 to turn over info of probe targeting parents after stonewalling under Dems. The FBI maintains it hasn’t and isn’t targeting parents or investigating speech at school board meetings,” is the headline from Just The News on Wednesday, adding:
US. Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and Education Secretary Miguel Cardona have until March 1 to turn over documents to the House Judiciary Committee about alleged FBI investigations into parents attending school board meetings in response to a memo Garland issued 17 months ago.
Since October 2021, Republican members of the committee have sent more than a hundred letters to Biden administration officials “requesting answers about how the Administration used federal counterterrorism resources against American parents,” according to a news release issued by the committee earlier this month.
“Whistleblowers have disclosed how, shortly after Attorney General Garland formally directed the FBI to take action, the FBI’s Counterterrorism and Criminal Divisions created a specific threat tag for school board-related threats and even opened investigations into parents simply for speaking out on behalf of their children,” the committee said.
After the National School Boards Association addressed a letter to President Joseph Biden pushing him to weaponize the Patriot Act against parents, Garland issued this instruction. “Emails later revealed that the Biden White House was aware of this letter and its contents in advance and did not oppose,” the committee stated.
