Gym Jordan Presents…

Coach of the Year, Gym Jordan (R-OH)

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.

    We almost starved to death during the committee meeting to decide which food vendor met the requirements to bring the choice to the entire group.

    One particular sticking point was whether patronizing the taco truck on the corner was ‘cultural appropriation’.

      I don’t doubt it. Been to those meetings.

      I attended a world premier documentary by the Korean-American, southern chef Edward Lee at the Seattle International Film Festival, in which he shows the history of some asian ingredients, and the craftsmen who make them, and he shows something akin to how they are being used around the world today. He states very clearly in the documentary that his own cooking would not be recognized by his Korean grandmother.

      At the Q&A afterwards, some snotty white college-aged Seattleite stood up and with all indignation she could muster —with her vocal fry set to 11— told him he was a cultural appropriator.

      He replied to her that all cooking is cultural appropriation, everywhere, and that was the history of food. They went back and forth a few times, but by then the audience had mostly left.

        BDR –

        The House does not accept your terms.

        The most dreaded words in Seattle are, “I have more of a comment than a question…”

        Town Hall, Seattle Arts and Lectures organization, finally wised-up and stopped providing mics at the Q&A portion and instead have a QR code and you text your question to the moderator who then makes a decision to ask the guest.

        At a recent even I was watching, before the guest took to the stage to present, the mod said with some surprise that they already had “questions.”

      Oh no. You and me, he and she, they and them, we all like tacos and everybody knows the mexicans make the best tacos. Is that a problem? Am i doing a cultural appropriation crime every time i eat a taco? What about those tamales? I love tamales. They are made with love. Do you remember when they said vote republican or else there will be a taco truck on every corner? Seriously, what would be wrong with that? Here have a taco, while we go deal with more important problems. I despair about the youth sometimes.

      I was invited to one meeting where a protest activity was being planned. The whole thing went off the rails when the discussion veered into whether parking breathing bodies on the tracks in front of the white train might give the engineer PTSD so what do we do now.
      Compare, contrast with J 6. PTSD? Naw, those tourists just flat out attacked anyone in their way. (and a shout out to Eugene Goodman for recognizing that and using it to protect his flock)

      To be fair, I couldn’t even get on board with the whole “let’s stop the white train” idea in the first place. You want to mess with the transportation of toxic materials? How does that make the project safer?
      So I guess I would have fit right in, except I never went back. Those people seemed pretty bonkers to me and I just don’t have that kind of patience.

    “Have you ever tried to place a lunch order for a group of liberal activists?”

    Just what Abbie Hoffman, of the Chicago 7, said. All 7 of them were accused of conspiring to subvert the Democratic Party national convention in 1968. Hoffman said, “Conspiring? We couldn’t agree on where to have lunch.”

    Why is Gym Jordan even IN Congress??? But then, why are Kevin McCarthy, Lauren Boebert, Marge Greene, Paul Gosar, and most of all, George Santos??? Seems the Republicans don’t have a high standard of integrity …
