Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Westernjournal.com: “Rep. Crawford: The Garland FBI Memo Is a Threat to Every American Who Cares About Their Child's Education”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

On Oct. 4, Attorney General Merrick Garland released a memo directing the FBI, in coordination with each U.S. attorney, to hold meetings across the United States on threats to school board officials and educators, and to establish threat reporting channels.

The attorney general later admitted that the memo was developed in response to a Sept. 29 public letter from the National School Boards Association requesting federal assistance to investigate threats the association believed “could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism.”

The NSBA also asked the Department of Justice to “review all applicable laws and policies, including the PATRIOT Act” to counter the threats.

After significant outrage from congressional Republicans and parent organizations, the NSBA apologized and rescinded its letter on Oct. 22.

Despite the retraction, however, the attorney general upheld his order and the FBI is now tracking American parents who have been speaking up at their children’s school board meetings.
