NSBA  collaborated with the White House to devise a “domestic terrorism” document for the FBI and DOJ to target parents

After receiving a letter from the National School Boards Association, Biden learned that parents were showing up at local school board meetings and demanding answers about why districts had adopted divisive and sexually inappropriate materials such as critical race theory and books about homosexual sex between men and boys, among other things.

Parental misconduct has been labeled “domestic terrorism” by the NSBA.

NSBA Says No Choice

According to an internal memo obtained by NBC News, the White House was “actively engaged” with the National School Boards Association before it wrote to the Biden administration asking that the federal government investigate outspoken parents and likening them to domestic terrorists.

Concerns about whether Attorney General Merrick Garland was ordered to conduct an FBI investigation into incidents at school board meetings were raised in an Oct. 12 NSBA memo obtained by CNN.

A specific meeting with White House staff was documented in a memo released Thursday by the group Parents Defending Education, two weeks before the NSBA sent its letter to President Biden.

As part of a September 14, 2021 OSAED [Organization of State Association Executive Directors] liaison group meeting, they were informed of a meeting with White House staff earlier in the day, and that NSBA was planning to write a letter to the President.

A letter requesting federal assistance was sent to the state association executive directors on September 17, 2021, according to an email from the interim Executive Director.

Justice Department and FBI agents were ordered to work with local law enforcement to investigate parents after Attorney General Merrick Garland received the letter.

Earlier this month, Garland issued a statement saying that “threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values.” To ensure that our children receive proper education in a safe environment, those exposed to more risks deserve to be able to do so without fear.

How did this whole thing get started? Was the first letter to President Biden, which was sent in late September, really motivated by concerns? The political machinations behind the scenes may have played a role, too.

That appears to be the case.

This is What the NSBA Says It is

According to Fox News,

When the National School Boards Association sent President Biden a letter comparing concerned parents to domestic terrorists, it collaborated with the White House and the Department of Justice. Fox News obtained emails showing that the White House and the National School Boards Association had been working together for weeks.

Prior to writing to President Biden, the National School Boards Association’s (NSBA) President Viola Garcia sent an Oct. 11 memo to all NSBA members that detailed the NSBA’s interactions with the White House prior to that letter, which was sent on Sept. 29.

Later, on Oct. 4, Garland issued a memo in response, and on Oct. 22, the NSBA issued a public apology for the original letter.

In a memo obtained by Parents Defending Education via FOIA request, Garcia wrote at the time that “concern over the current climate for school board members is also a top priority as disruptions at school board meetings grow and members face growing threats.”

NSBA’s memo stated that the organization has been working with the White House and other federal agencies on pandemic-related issues since the Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa.

An email was sent to state association executive directors on September 17, 2021, by the interim Executive Director to inform them of an impending request to the federal government for financial assistance,” it continued.

The Sept. 29 letter from NSBA CEO Chip Slaven, which claimed “America’s public schools and its education leaders are under an immediate threat,” was sent without consultation from other NSBA officials.

The letter claimed that “acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials” at local school board meetings across the US could be classified as a “form of domestic terrorism.”

Slaven wrote that “in talks over the last several weeks with White House staff, they requested additional information on some of the specific threats, so the letter also details many of the incidents that have been occurring.”

Following Slaven’s letter, the board of directors issued an official apology for the language used in the document.

“The language in the letter that they disavow is language was never included in my memo and never would have been. I did not adopt every concern that they had in their letter. I thought that only the concern about violence and threats of violence that hasn’t changed,” Garland said.

On October 4, 2021, Attorney General Eric Holder issued a memo to all US Attorney’s Offices and FBI offices in the US Department of Justice. The memo required them to reach out to local and state law enforcement officials within 30 days of the memorandum to coordinate efforts on the problem. Garcia said.

The protocol appears to be at odds with Garland’s congressional testimony. He said his memo did not rely on the letter in response to whether he had “second thoughts” after the NSBA’s apology.

The organization’s concerns about violence and threats of violence have not changed since the letter was sent. “We didn’t rely on it, and it wasn’t in my memorandum,” Garland stated.

If we had a functioning government, these people would be dealt with as criminals.
