An whistleblower has come forward with proof that the Biden administration weaponized the FBI against parents. The whistleblower revealed internal FBI emails that showed the use of counterterrorism tools to tag parents with specialized labels who speak out against school board members and teachers, thus creating a list of people to monitor.
The whistleblower’s information appears to contrast Attorney General Merrick Garland’s earlier memo. The email noted the creation of a threat tag called EDUOFFICIALS that monitor school actions.
“The purpose of the threat tag is to help scope this threat on a national level and provide an opportunity for comprehensive analysis of the threat picture for effective engagement with law enforcement partners at all levels,” the email noted.
House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jim Jordan revealed the email to AG Garland in a letter Tuesday, noting it was sent just one day before his Oct. 21 testimony on the matter.
“We are now in receipt of a protected disclosure from a Department whistleblower showing that the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division is compiling and categorizing threat assessments related to parents,” Jordan wrote.
“At best if we assume that you were ignorant of the FBI’s actions in response to your October 4 memorandum at the time of your testimony, this evidence suggests that your testimony to the committee was incomplete and requires additional explanation,” he added. The concerning message will likely lead to further investigation into the matter.
The FBI should NOT be tagging parents as threats who are concerned about their child’s education, yet it appears this is exactly what is taking place. Now concerned parents are the bad guys who are labeled domestic terrorists and are tracked by the government.
And why? Because a parent doesn’t want critical race theory taught in a school. Or maybe a concerned parent does want biological males to use the same bathroom as their daughter? In other cases, parents have legitimate concerns about schools being shut down over COVID, or mask wearing requirements and vaccine mandates among students.
These are not terror threats. These are real issues that parents could and should discuss in board meetings and with teachers. But now the Biden administration wants to silence all critics, including parents.
Well, it’s not going to work in Loudoun County, Virginia. The school district just dealt with a student convicted of rape and pleaded no contest in a second sexual harassment crime. The people of Virginia didn’t like it much either. The concern led to a red wave that sent Democrats packing as the state elected its first GOP governor in more than a decade, along with a Republican Lt. Gov. and Republican Attorney General.
The message is clear. When you mess with parents and their kids, it will not go well for you. This doesn’t matter if you’re running for governor or you’re in charge of the FBI. Even Attorney General Merrick Garland is not immune.
Americans will stand for their children. The fact that the FBI is using counterterrorism measures to track parent actions shows how defeated they already are.
