White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was grilled by one reporter Wednesday after the Dept. of Justice instructed the FBI to probe American parents protesting at school board meetings as potential “domestic terrorists.”
“A week ago, the National School Boards Association wrote to the President to say that their teachers feel like some parents protesting recently could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism. The Attorney General put the FBI on the case,” began one reporter.
“Does the administration agree that parents upset about their kids’ curriculums could be domestic terrorists?” asked the journalist.
“These were threats against public servants! Threats against members of the school board,” deflected Psaki.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy ripped his Democratic Colleagues after some legislators urged the Department of Justice to investigate parents opposed to ‘Critical Race Theory’ in public schools; saying the entire effort is a move to “silence” the opposition.
“President Biden’s latest decision is part of a disturbing trend in the Democrat Party to silence parents,” McCarthy said on Twitter Tuesday. “We should encourage family participation in our schools, not baselessly attack opposing views because leftist groups want control over curriculums.”
“Parents have a fundamental right to be lawfully involved in their children’s education,” McCarthy said. “We should encourage family participation in our school systems, not baselessly attack opposing views because some liberal education officials and special interest groups see it as a threat to the power they want to have over what children learn in America’s classrooms.”
