Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has fired back at President Joe Biden after the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced this week that it would probe threats targeting school board members all over the county.
This came in response to the National School Boards Association (NSBA) comparing these recent acts to domestic terrorism.
None of this sat well with McEnany, however, as she told Fox News that “parents found their voice and that is unacceptable to Biden administration.”
“Here is what is at the root of this,” she said. “Parents have found their voice and that is unacceptable to the Biden administration. Parents are the problem, what they say, what they think. Look, let’s be honest, the vast majority of parents are not committing any sort of violence or threat against school boards. But Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate, he said the quiet part out loud.”
“So parents have no role in what schools do, no role in what schools do in teaching children, and that’s what’s at the root of this,” McEnany added. “And the corollary question to this: is the FBI and DOJ going to look into school board members who threaten parents?”
“Remember, we talked about that Loudoun County Facebook group that was doxing parents, threatening them with hacking,” she concluded. “There was that San Marcos school teacher who dared parents to come at her. So are they going to investigate the opposite? If I did take an educated guess, I would say no.”
This came after Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that he is mobilizing the FBI and U.S. attorneys to “investigate and prosecute” protests by parents against things like mask mandates and critical race theory at public school board meetings and schools across the country.
“Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values,” Garland wrote in a memo that he sent to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Justice Department prosecutors on Monday. “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.”

Many would argue that the left has long been trying to use schools to indoctrinate our children from an early age, and that what Biden is doing is an attempt to take more control away from the parents who are fighting back.
These parents have legitimate concerns about their children being taught things like critical race theory in school, and they should be free to voice those concerns, without having to worry about being labeled as domestic terrorists in the process.
