Influence

In recent weeks, the National Association of School Boards sent a letter to the Justice Department, complaining about America’s brave moms and dads who were speaking up and demanding their rights at school boards across the country.

These patriot parents simply want to put a stop to teaching critical race theory in their schools. The NASB’s letter intimated that these parents were “threatening” members of the school boards (the NASB has since recanted some of its charges).

These parents were guilty of no crime against these school boards.

Raising your voice at because they are teaching your children to hate each other is not a crime. Waving your arms as you call them to task for teaching your children this elitist, godless theory is not a crime. Neither is the threat to “primary” these board members at the next election cycle a crime.

These parents are not criminals to be “tagged,” hunted and interrogated by Biden’s Democrat FBI lackeys — the are heroic patriots to be admired. This action to “weaponize” the agencies of the federal government against these parents is despicable, un-American and frightening.

Guess who is to benefit the most if the government is successful in stifling the free speech of these patriotic parents? Merrick Garland's son-in-law, Xan Tanner.

He is the co-founder of Panorama Education, a firm that has received multi-millions in contracts from school boards to train teachers (and provide the curriculum) to teach CRT in public schools. This conflict of interest on the part of Garland makes the Hunter/Joe Biden scandal look like child’s play.

Here is just another case of a prominent Democrat’s family profiteering from his actions as a federal employee.

This action on the part of the federal government to badger its citizens for exercising their constitutional right to dissent has highlighted a huge problem. We have a cartel that is smothering our educational system today. This cartel is the Department of Education in Washington, National Association of School Boards, National Education Association (teacher’s union) and National Federation of Teachers (another teacher’s union). People must unite and crush this nexus of evil that is intent on destroying our children with these godless, left-leaning ideologies.

Here are a few ideas how we can do this/

First, let’s get some of these outspoken parents to run for school board seats, and let’s get behind them with money and manpower to win these elections.

Next, let’s get busy and offer up school choice as an alternative to the failed system of school administration we have today. We must advocate (locally, statewide, and nationally) for the money to follow the child. The parent should be able to have a choice as to where their children get their education — be it at home, private/parochial schools, charter schools or public schools.

“School Choice” is the phrase that sends chills down the spines of the nexus that runs our public school system, the NEA, NFT, NASB and the Federal Department of Education. None of these organizations can tolerate the idea that educational funding should follow the child.

How ironic it is that the Justice Department is claiming that these patriotic parents are, in their jaundiced view, “violent white supremacists." It’s time to state the facts as they really are.

Where was the Justice Department when Antifa, BLM and other communist/socialist sympathizers were burning, looting, pulling down statues, defacing buildings, killing policemen and pelting them with bricks, rocks, and Molotov cocktails?

Garland and his ilk (including A.G. Barr) were sitting on their hands doing absolutely nothing to bring justice to our land. Now, this Justice Department wants to suppress the free speech of our country’s patriots instead of enforcing the law and punishing the real criminals in our society. These parents are my heroes!

In researching this article, I ran across a note in the wedding announcement of Rebecca Garland and Xan Tanner in the New York Times (June 17, 2018). When asked about Garland’s occupation. the family reply was, “she advises government and nonprofit groups on voting systems and accuracy issues."

Very interesting to many of us who believe the 2020 election results were extremely inaccurate.
