If you lived in this country 15 years ago and you have a good memory, you may remember the creation of something called the National Security Division at the Department of Justice. It was created back in 2005 when they re-upped the Patriot Act. We were informed at that time that the National Security Division was created to “counterterrorism” and counterespionage foreign enemies. It was all the important stuff. Mostly it was Islamic terror, which was the primary threat at that time, but these were also the people in charge of busting the Chinese spies who try to steal our nuclear secrets. They stopped the hijackings and suicide bombers. It’s not small things. The nation was threatened by crimes This was back then.
In January, Joe Biden was elected president. The entire mission of America’s government turned inward and against you. A few days ago, the Department of Justice, under the radical Attorney General Merrick Garland, announced that the National Security Division has a new domestic mission. Garland stated that the National Security Division will immediately be investigating “harassment and intimidation of violence against teachers, school board members and other workers at our public schools”.
The question is who is trying to intimidate these school board members and teachers? Are they Al Qaeda or something else? It could be the Russian government. Is ISIS-K it? It’s not. Parents are the problem. The school situation is making parents mad. What is the reason they are so mad?
Take a look at the people Joe Biden has been nominating to senior leadership positions in the Department of Education. You will see the YouTube clips of school board meetings from across the nation over the last year and understand why parents are so mad. People who support biological sex and oppose radical ideas such as racial hierarchies within pre-kindergarten classrooms. Teach children to hate their parents. According to Biden’s administration, those are the threats.
You’ll notice if you look closely that nowhere in Merrick Garland’s recent order, or the DOJ’s press release, is any explanation of these “threats of violence.” Are there any threats to violence? Are there any threats of violence at school board meetings? It is not. Look closer, and you’ll find this line: “The Justice Department will also create specialized training and guidance [that] will help school board members … understand the type of behavior that constitutes threats.”
Oh. It’s propaganda, paid for by the Department of Justice, and designed to inform teachers and school boards that domestic terrorist acts are being perpetrated. This is not the first proposed amendment. This is not a legitimate complaint from your constituents. This is essentially an attempt to kill you by a foreign enemy.
The Biden administration wants to inform school board members using the Department of Justice that they are at risk from their parents and are national security risks. This is a new occurrence in the United States. This is a complete perversion of both the United States Department of Justice’s mission and power. This is an utterly insane and sinister act.
We almost never play the equivalence game because it’s tiresome, but in this case, it’s hard to resist. Think about what Donald Trump’s DOJ would do if it designated CNN anchors domestic terrorists and put that in writing. Then, they told gunmen to enforce the law. What would happen? It would make us all outraged. It would be a scandal to all decent Americans. It would be no more difficult than that. Many CNN anchors excused violence in the last year’s riots. The media don’t seem to be upset by this. Our media believe that if parents in suburban areas resist the imposed nihilistic ideology of the ruling class, it is perfectly acceptable to label them terrorists and threaten their lives with guns.
JASON JOHNSON, MSNBC: In a version of America where school board meetings have become the new culture war battleground with children caught in the crosshairs – sometimes literally, sometimes figuratively.
KRISTOFER GOLDSMITH, INTEL EXPERT: Right now everyone from the Proud Boys to the Oath Keepers to QAnon influencers are trying to encourage their members to maniacs to show up at school board meetings
GEOFF BENNETT, MSNBC: Some behavior is so bad, it’s being compared to domestic terrorism.
FRANK FIGLIUZZI, MSNBC: This becomes a security crisis in a sense for the nation
CHRIS HAYES, MSNBC: How one republican senator is pretending school board harassment and intimidation aren’t off the charts.
BETSY WOODRUFF: Similar tactics to what happened on January 6th that are now being turned against school boards nationwide in a trend that is really disturbing and sinister
JOY REID: Conservatives manufactured outrage over masks and history lessons, took our school boards hostage like a bunch of screaming maniacs.
So, the federal government has designated American parents who are unhappy with the education their children are receiving as domestic terrorists, and the media are defending it. It’s difficult to explain this shameful act. A free press serves the purpose of protecting the weak against the powerful. Our media do exactly the opposite. This is evidently more every day. They slobber over billionaires, they defend the powerful, they call you a bigot if you challenge George Soros, and on the other hand, they clap like seals as working–class people go to jail for thought crimes.
They’re trying to pretend that’s not what they’re doing, that they’re not sucking up to power, that they’re not a Pretorian guard for the Biden administration, but they are. This is “domestic terrorist,” and they are repeating Merrick Garland’s words. This has absolutely nothing to do the freedom of expression.
This week on MSNBC, U.S.’s daughter was interviewed. Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey — one of the Biden administration’s chief allies in the Senate — promised that she would air definitive proof that parents who dare to challenge the Biden administration’s orthodoxy are, in reality, a grave threat to national security. The National Security Division must investigate the parents and treat them as criminals for speaking out at school board meetings. Here’s the evidence she presented:
ALICIA MELENDEZ: I want to play some sound from these school board meetings so we can get a sense for how out of control some of these are getting. Have a look.
MOM: Don’t put masks on our kids anymore. You can trust me when I say that I am a fearless mom. You can count on me to come for you.
MOM: You’re allowing child abuse, you’re allowing child abuse, you’re allowing child abuse, you’re allowing child abuse.
ALICIA MELENDEZ: Things have been so scary at these meetings that the organization representing school boards across the country is asking the federal government to help. These actions may be classified as domestic terrorist acts.
So mothers stand up before a school board, which is their constitutional right, in fact, their duty as parents, to say they believe, based on a lot of scientific evidence, that their children are being hurt by a policy that makes no sense. You can imagine looking at the tape and thinking, “Blame them moms!” Their behavior was “scary”, and they should be questioned by the FBI and terrorists.
What did they say? They said, “Don’t give children masks anymore. This is child abuse. It’s actually true. Anyone who’s looked at the data will see that it is. This assessment was made by Belgian Pediatricians and the Belgian Academy for Medicine. The Hippocratic Oath, which doctors signed, states that testing children and imposing mouth-masks or quarantine on them is against their rights. This is what I think… These extreme actions cause more harm to children over the long-term than the actual infection. “
That’s not some angry mom from Laguna Beach. These are doctors saying it. You won’t find any scientific research that contradicts this assessment if you do a little bit of searching around. These mask laws for children are based on no scientific evidence. Miguel Cardona (Joe Biden’s Secretary for Education) tried to use a study that supported the forced masking of children to justify his decision. This is an outrage. When Cardona used the study as a justification for a political decision Tracey Hoeg (the senior author) stated that Cardona didn’t know what he was talking bout and completely misrepresented her research. There were no controls so it doesn’t necessarily prove anything.
Don’t bother. This subject is too complex to be rational. You will be branded a domestic extremist if you try to speak out about scientific findings. The media will insist that you are investigated by the FBI. This is the same excuse that the Chinese government used to justify the Tiananmen Square massacres. People who were wronged completely by the government are being accused of attempting to undermine domestic stability through complaining. The nation is being threatened by what was once considered legitimate civic discord.
JASON JOHNSON: Is this really about people being upset about mask mandates or are there sort of underlying disruptive forces, white nationalists, anarchists, whatever, in this country, that are using mask mandates and a public health crisis to sort of wage chaos?
Get that moron off television. This is a problem for the country. They‘re racist now? Because they don’t want to see their children masked, they’re racist. You can imagine saying that. These “underlying forces” are at work. You can’t see the secret forces. It must be Qanon, or White supremacists. This country does not have any organized White supremacist groups. There are many problems in this country. This is not the only problem. We don’t agree with their politics and therefore don’t believe they deserve civil liberty. They believe that. They believe that.
You have to wonder if any of these people have seen a school board meeting, or if they’re just repeating what they’re told. They didn’t cause the chaos. They had a totally ordinary and justified expectation that their kids would be educated, as kids have been educated in this country for more than 100 years in public schools. Parents began to notice the changes in schools and started to accept them. They are being used to teach racism at school, and their children suffer.
What are you doing?!
Parents go to school to express their concerns about teachers advocating book burning and racial separation. They’re recording it, it’s not secret and they aren’t plotting. This is not the Qanon army. These are normal Americans. In Virginia, this is exactly what occurred in May.
RIVER BEND MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER ANDREA WEISKOPF: It’s funny how they are so afraid of having their children seeing another view of sexuality, gender or religion. Let’s discuss books assigned together if you are interested in discussing them. You don’t have any business talking about books if you can’t consider the racial trauma that this book has on Black children and its White saviorism.
Well exactly. If you’re telling kids that Dr. Seuss and “To Kill a Mockingbird,” both of which are explicitly anti-racist, and were so before that was even a term thought up by some grafter at Boston University, if you really believe that, you’re a lunatic. You’re a lunatic if you say that loud.
And if you’re complaining about it, you’re not the one waging chaos. Look around on cable news, and you won’t find anyone explaining what’s actually going on. People like Nicolle Wallace will be ranting about the inequalities of civil liberties for those who disagree with them. Her name is almost never mentioned on air. Nicolle Wallace represents almost everything wrong about this country. In a single word, she is disgusting.
But, let’s face it: if the federal government declared Nicolle Wallace a terrorist because of her political views, we would unhesitatingly jump to her defense with maximum vehemence. It would be done immediately and it wouldn’t end. We believe in civil liberty.
Would he do the same thing for us? No. Nicolle Wallace would be proud if the whole staff was detained tomorrow because of our beliefs. This is the difference. They don’t believe in civil liberty.
How can you tell? Has MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, or any other MSNBC employee spoken out about how the government monitors people’s Google searches. It’s actually happening. The feds have just released court papers showing that Joe Biden’s DOJ has obtained sensitive and private information from any person who entered certain keywords in a Google search. Recently, a Minnesota judge approved secret warrants requiring Google tracking data on “anyone within the city Edina that searched for a victim of fraud.” It seems unlikely that this warrant could extend to ideologic crimes. These are crimes the Biden administration is really concerned about. It’s possible. It’s true. It’s not even mentioned on TV. They think that you are entitled to it. They don’t believe you are entitled to civil liberties. They don’t believe God so they don’t believe you have civil liberties. They believed you had them from the government. If you are naughty they may be removed. So they cheer when it happens. Google collects a lot of tracking information on its users, including their names, home addresses, and browsing history going back decades.
That’s a story you’d expect a lot of people on the left to be concerned about. If it was 20 years ago, they would be concerned about it. It would have the ACLU all abuzz. This is yet another example of how the government abuses its surveillance power to spy on innocent citizens. It’s not something that CNN or MSNBC will mention. What’s the problem? Their job is not to protect your civil liberties or you, but to support the party in power.
That could be why they won’t tell you about Merrick Garland’s personal stake in prosecuting people who challenge the insanity that we’re seeing from school boards across the country. It turns out that Merrick Garland is married to Panorama Education’s co-founder. Panorama Education provides critical race theory materials to schools districts, including the dismantling of “unconscious bias” and systemic racism.
The thing parents complain about is Merrick Garland and his family’s wealth. Merrick Garland declared it illegal to criticize the family’s beliefs two days ago. Is this logical?
This company raised quite a lot of money through Mark Zuckerberg’s foundation. Fairfax County Public Schools recently signed a $1.8million contract with Panorama for a multiyear “social- and emotional learning screening,” which gives them permission to gather “psychometrics”. Are you aware that they are collecting psychometrics about your children? What exactly is a psychometric? One question asks students if they are gay or straight. This is all what makes Merrick Garland and his family wealthy.
This is horrifying. This is also possible illegal. All of these ethical concerns are raised by the DOJ’s conflict of interest policy. According to the DOJ, employees must seek guidance from an official before participating in “any matter where his or her impartiality might be challenged.” This includes cases where matters could “Affect financial interests” of a [DOJ] relative. “
This would likely include Merrick Garland, your daughter. What did you do? It’s not something that the “National Security Division” of the DOJ is looking into tonight. They’re instead promising to pursue people and make them domestic terrorists.
