Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 06, 2021

Taking note of a supposed "spike" in harassment and intimidating behavior directed at public school officials, Attorney General Merrick Garland has instructed the FBI to be on the lookout for angry parents demanding accountability at school board meetings. On Monday, Garland sent a memo to the federal law enforcement agency directing it to coordinate with the nation's 14,000 school districts. This action comes after the Biden administration received a plea from the National School Boards Association (NSBA) to protect schools from the "imminent threat" of parents sending "threatening letters and cyberbullying" school officials. The association considers such activities to be akin to "domestic terrorism." "As these acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials have increased, the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes," wrote the NSBA.

Margie Three Toes is calling the DOJ action Nazism.

These dumfuqs are attacking school administrators, principals, teachers and medical professionals.

They believe in getting their way through screaming, threats, intimidation and violence.

They are getting what they deserve.

What a garbage article. Very sad that a publication named "Reason" would run such lies.
Fortunately the document the article references is publicly available and it makes clear that Garland's instructions are in relation to people who are committing or threatening to commit acts of violence against school board members and other public servants.
