So… this happened:
House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan on Friday subpoenaed the Department of Justice, the FBI and the Department of Education for documents as part of its investigation into whether a Justice Department strategy to address threats against teachers and school officials was abused to target conservative parents.
You see, (allegedly) parents were threatening school board members for wanting to protect teachers and children from the Trump Virus-19, and so reporting threats (including death threats) to the FBI and the FBI investigating it was somehow targeting conservatives. Gee, I wonder why?
The allegations being investigated date to 2021, when protests and some violence erupted at school board meetings across the country. Most of the anger came from conservative parents who wanted to repeal mask mandates, opposed anti-racism courses and had concerns about LGBTQ policies.
With that backdrop, the National School Boards Association wrote to President Joe Biden asking for federal help to address the violence and threats against school administrators. The group said that “these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism” and encouraged the Justice Department to explore which laws, possibly including the Patriot Act, could be applied.
Domestic Tuckerism is more like it, but why split hairs? They were being riled up, they went to schools board meetings to cause trouble. Watching some of those meetings, I felt pretty certain that the agitators did not have kids in those schools or kids at all, but wanted to have their 15-minutes of fame.
The group soon apologized for “some of the language” in its letter. But it quickly drew backlash, particularly among conservatives.
If there is one thing I think I know it is that we Libtards are unlikely to attack schools, let alone death threats to school boards and teachers, and frankly, I cannot imagine the cat herder capable of organizing this. Have you ever tried to place a lunch order for a group of liberal activists? I double-dog dare you to give that a bash.
So why did the FBI investigate the parents threatening the school boards: They were asked.
So why did Jim Jordan immediately assume it was conservatives being investigated? Heh.
