In the video below, Union Boss Randi Weingarten agrees with the letter from the National School Boards Association (NSBA) sent to Biden last month (see below) that calls protesting parents “domestic terrorists”…
She assumes that parents have been violent at board meetings when that is not the case. Parents have been angry because they feel they aren’t being listened to by the school board. The truth is they haven’t been listened to and have been cut off from speaking via tactics to silence them. School boards have abruptly canceled meetings and have cut off parents while they’re talking. The disrespect for parents has been shocking.
Listen below as Weingarten claims to have been on the “front lines” of protests and describes the protests from parents like they are the enemy.
Who has been violent? Who has been bullied?
A letter sent to Biden last month from the NSBA is complete overkill.
A portion of the letter discusses domestic terrorism and hate crimes but there are zero instances of anything close to this from parents at school board meetings:
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. As such, NSBA requests a joint expedited review by the U.S. Departments of Justice, Education, and Homeland Security, along with the appropriate training, coordination, investigations, and enforcement mechanisms from the FBI, including any technical assistance necessary from, and state and local coordination with, its National Security Branch and Counterterrorism Division, as well as any other federal agency with relevant jurisdictional authority and oversight. Additionally, NSBA requests that such review examine appropriate enforceable actions against these crimes and acts of violence under the Gun-Free School Zones Act, the PATRIOT Act in regards to domestic terrorism, the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, the Violent Interference with Federally Protected Rights statute, the Conspiracy Against Rights statute, an Executive Order to enforce all applicable federal laws for the Preclusion of Further Threats and Violence Against Students and Educators.
