Conservative parents beware: The Biden administration will come after you if you dare speak up against forced masking of children or Critical Race Theory.
Despite testimony from Attorney General Merrick Garland, it’s been revealed that Biden’s FBI targeted multiple disgruntled parents who expressed concern over school policies that could potentially harm children, including mask mandates.
An FBI whistleblower exposed AG Garland’s approach to dealing with conservative parents, which consisted of creating a special task force that used counterterrorism tactics to prevent what they call “violence” against school administrators.
The FBI’s activities were publicly revealed in a letter from Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee to Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Garland directed the FBI and the Department of Justice to form a joint task force in October 2021 to investigate threats against school board members after the National School Boards Association asked the Biden administration in a September 2021 letter to investigate parents protesting at school board meetings as domestic terrorists under the Patriot Act.
Garland issued the memo forming the task force a week after the NSBA sent its letter. After public outcry, the association apologized for sending the letter and withdrew it as numerous state school board associations announced they were disassociating with the national organization.
Despite the NSBA’s backtrack, Garland said the substance of the letter was still relevant and defended his memo in late October testimony to the House and Senate judiciary committees. In January, emails obtained through the Freedom of Information Act showed that Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona had solicited the NSBA’s letter to the administration.

In the letter were three separate examples of parents who the FBI deemed worthy of a counterterrorism investigation.
In one example, the FBI interviewed a mother who had told her school board, “We’re coming for you.” The mother was deemed worthy of an investigation because she belongs to a parents’ rights organization called Mothers For Liberty, and she owns a gun.
In another case, the FBI interviewed someone who had filed a tip alleging that a father who opposed mask mandates in schools “fit the profile of an insurrectionist” and likewise owned guns.
The final example cited by Jordan and Johnson was an FBI field office that opened an investigation into Republican elected officials in a state after a Democratic Party official filed a tip claiming that the Republicans had “incited violence” by “expressing displeasure with school districts’ vaccine mandates.”
The information is startling, to say the least.
