Biden's Justice Department targets parents
"While local and state law enforcement agencies are working with public school officials in several communities to prevent further disruptions to educational services and school district operations, law enforcement officials in some jurisdictions need assistance — including help with monitoring the threat levels," Viola Garcia, the group's president, and Chip Slaven, its interim executive director and CEO, told Mr. Biden.

The radical regime is at it again. This time all it took was a request from the National School Boards Association (NSBA). They sent a letter to president Biden Wednesday claiming that its leaders "are under an immediate threat" that requires the attention of law enforcement across all levels of government, not just the local police - but the federal government as well!  Evidently that is all Biden's handlers needed to hear! Or maybe this has been planned out for months?  At any rate, the radical attorney General of the United States announced that he would oblige the NSBA request and he has now sicked the FBI onto American parents. The same FBI that was AWOL during a year of left wing riots. The same FBI that never followed up on the allegations against trainers, made by female gymnasts.

Critical race theory has become a serious concern for parents across the country, and at least 25 states have attempted to retrict such radical racist teachings. The teaching of the new transgender theories is another concern.

The issue is who determines what is taught to our children, parents or indoctrinated teachers?

Obviously, this move by Biden's DOJ is an attempt to intimidate parents. Local laws already provide local school boards ample protections when it comes to inappropriate behavior. So will a parent's raising his/her voice now be considered "threatening." We have seen how the left uses the law to achieve its ends. Why are we tolerating this? When parents have very reasonable concerns about what their children are being taught, whether it's being taught that they are "victims" or taught to hate others based on their race or even taught to hate themselves, or that the country is systematically racist in a way that is irredeemable, they should have every right to weigh in on it. To declare war on concerned parents, particularly when the FBI and DOJ has been absent on issues where they actually were needed is  unconscionable . It is a politization and weaponization of the DOJ which we haven't seen since the time of Eric Holder. 

We can all agree that the use of violence is never acceptable and if there is violence at a school board meeting it is an issue for local police to deal with it. The intervention by Biden's DOJ is nothing more than an attempt to delegitimize the legitimate concerns that many parents have. The pretext being used is flimsy. We are to believe that because there may be a potential threat of violence that this has suddenly become a federal law enforcement matter fools nobody!

The left's war on America has entered a new stage.

The question has become can we really wait another 3 long years to vote it all away?

Vic list the K-12 school districts that teach 'critical race theory' .

I asked you the other day if Ruby Bridges Goes To School is critical race theory, and you didnt answer. .  It is the story of a six year old girl who tried to desegregate New Orleans schools in 1960. 

Robin Steenman, head of the Williamson County chapter of the Republican group Moms for Liberty, took issue with author and activist Ruby Bridges' book  Ruby Bridges Goes to School  among other titles,  The Tennessean  reported. She told a county commission that approves the school district's budget: “I realize that this isn't usually in your lane, but I just wanted you to be aware."

She voiced her disapproval of educators teaching words like "injustice," "unequal," "inequality," "protest," "marching," and "segregation," and Steenman highlighted a portion of Bridges’ book that described a "large crowd of angry white people who didn't want Black children in a white school." The white mother said it too harshly divided Black and white people,

without offering any "redemption" at the end. So basically Bridges told the truth, and Steenman is angry about it. 

Tennessee Republicans deem Ruby Bridges' story critical race theory in effort to ban it in schools - JoriPress

Most of the people who complain about CRT couldnt accurately describe it if you paid them 1000 dollars to do so. 

To the average conservative MAGA member CRT is any attempt by schools to bring up white racism.  Whites dont want to have their kids hear that America has historically been a racist country.

That can be settled easily. Last week I was at a funeral service at a private home. Family members were linked up online on one big screen with each able to share a memory. If private citizens can easily do that, schools should be able to provide parents video coverage of what is going on in the classroom. That solves that entire issue.


What you call CRT is schools teaching kids that America has a history of being a racist country, which is true.

What I call CRT is when white kids are taught that they are born racists and black kids are taught that they are victims.

First off - Woof! Go Biden!

Secondly - This is just malcontent blather," Critical race theory has become a serious concern for parents across the country, and at least 25 states have attempted to re(s)trict such radical racist teachings. The teaching of the new transgender theories is another concern. "  As with your great leader, you cannot and will not define CRT. It exists as a generalized term for "something I Do Not Like" that, without meaning, can be brought forth whenever you don't have a logical argument. The same applies for the second sentence.


At any rate, the radical attorney General of the United States announced that he would oblige the NSBA request and he has now sicked the FBI onto American parents.

From the Justice Department's website:

Citing an increase in harassment, intimidation and threats of violence against school board members, teachers and workers in our nation’s public schools, today Attorney General Merrick B. Garland directed the FBI and U.S. Attorneys’ Offices to meet in the next 30 days with federal, state, Tribal, territorial and local law enforcement leaders to discuss strategies for addressing this disturbing trend. These sessions will open dedicated lines of communication for threat reporting, assessment and response by law enforcement.   

“Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values,” wrote Attorney General Garland. “Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety.”

According to the Attorney General’s  memorandum , the Justice Department will launch a series of additional efforts in the coming days designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel. Those efforts are expected to include the creation of a task force, consisting of representatives from the department’s Criminal Division, National Security Division, Civil Rights Division, the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, the FBI, the Community Relations Service and the Office of Justice Programs, to determine how federal enforcement tools can be used to prosecute these crimes, and ways to assist state, Tribal, territorial and local law enforcement where threats of violence may not constitute federal crimes.

So, it seems to be more of a way to let everyone know that they are playing to a larger audience than just the locals (and whoever cares to watch the video.) All of your suppositions are just conjecture worded as questions to tickle the fear out of "our readers", I guess 'cause your sceered that somebody might advance beyond a third grade mentality 

Just to be clear: Teachers do not teach children to hate: That is the whack-job parents' role. Teachers do not teach children to play the victim: That is the whack-job parents' role. Teachers do not teach children to hate themselves: That is the whack-job parents' role. So, if you are a whack-job parent, get busy. It is a long school year ahead. (/s)

The left has no war on America, any more than there was a war on Christmas or any other of the right wing's made up fairy tales used to whip the base into a lather.

"where threats of violence may not constitute federal crimes."

1) That has to be defined. Is a parent raising their voice considered a threat.

2) We are all against violence. It is the job of local police to address local problems .

It's nonsense and unenforceable. The sole purpose of the Memo is to scare parents and give progressive authoritarians something to wave in their faces.

Garland's assistant testified the other day in Congress and simply pretended the language about harassment and intimidation didn't exist. She falsely claimed the memo only addresses violence.  She knows the DOJ has no legal basis to involve itself in these meetings and clung to the only thread that could justify it, actual violence.

No, CRT is not taught, meaning that it is not curricular, at any public school. There are a bunch of teachers unions in the country.  

That has to be defined. Is a parent raising their voice considered a threat.

I should think that the laws are clear enough for you to infer that merely raising their voice is not considered threatening. The fact that this does not automatically occur to you makes me doubt either your veracity or your intelligence, but then again, you seem smart enough to me.

We are all against violence. It is the job of local police to address local problems

Wow. We are agreed on something. What is a local problem? Is a problem that is occuring at numerous places throughout the various states with the same reason and underlying cause still a local problem? How do you square this with your various commentaries on BLM?

Don’t listen to the different view silence it.

When having a scientific discussion about the age of the earth scientists debate based on actual evidence whether it's 4.404 billions years old as small zircon crystals found in Australia indicate or if it's 4.567 billion years old as tests of meteor fragments indicate.

Then a parent stands up and shouts "Don't you dare fuckin teach my kids that shit! The earth is 9,000 years old according to bible math! That's what should be taught in public schools and me and my friends are going to follow school board members home and march outside their houses unless they accept OUR truth!".

When discussing the benefits of fluoride in the water and how it prevents tooth decay for our children a parent stands up and screams "Fluoride is a mind control drug that is brainwashing our children! It's turning our kids into liberal cucks! It needs to be removed!"

When discussing the benefits of vaccinations a parent stands up and screams "Vaccinations cause autism and brain defects and cancer! Vaccinations should be banned!".

When discussing the benefits of mask mandates and keeping our communities and children safe from a massive deadly pandemic a parent stands up and screams "Masks are from the devil! I hate masks and my kids won't wear them and it's violating my children's freedom!".

Sometimes it's not just a "different view", it's fucking ignorant bullshit being spouted by brain dead indoctrinated morons who think their uninformed wild fantasies and laughable conspiracy theories should get as much validation as actual science and facts. If we don't tell those dumb fucks how stupid their premises are we are effectively saying facts and science shouldn't matter anymore and up is down, left is right, black is white, water isn't wet and that there's no difference between letting a poorly educated burger flipper perform brain surgery and having an actual highly trained well educated brain surgeon perform the surgery. Perhaps that's what we are seeing today, the mass delusions of a bunch of poorly educated rural white conservatives who've apparently already been lobotomized by their local supermarket bag boy. That would explain how fucking insane they've become.

Parents threatening schools boards because of proposed mask mandates or vaccine mandates are a domestic terror threat, they are putting other Americans and their children at risk by being fucking brain dead morons who reject science, ridicule higher education and think their "research" they did on Facebook and some dipshit right wing conservative religious blogs are somehow superior to the CDC and actual immunologists. Those parents screaming their uninformed idiotic opinions and making threats to school boards are a danger to schools, teachers and other parents and should be treated as such.

These folk are not "questioning" truth, they are flat out rejecting it and inserting their own uninformed ignorant opinion and then getting furious enough to threaten school board members when their grossly negligent opinions aren't validated.

I have no problem with people asking intelligent questions or even uninformed opinions if they are willing to listen to the answers and become better educated by them. But these parents aren't asking questions to become better informed or better educated, they have their already decided opinion and simply want to spew it at everyone else while dismissing facts and science as liberal elitism. I think the hate expressed by these parents towards the school boards, vaccines, masks, facts and science is far more egregious than the few warranted names I call them in my post.

Do you recall when school kids were forced to learn at home?  It was parents looking in, who got a bit of an education.


I should think that the laws are clear enough for you to infer that merely raising their voice is not considered threatening. 

The problem is that we have a two tiered system in which some people riot & loot and face no punishment at all and other people rot in jail for trespassing.


 What is a local problem?

Schools! They belong to the states and local municipalities.


Is a problem that is occuring at numerous places throughout the various states with the same reason and underlying cause still a local problem?

Yes


How do you square this with your various commentaries on BLM?

Simple - The DOJ and FBI have been notably absent from the riots of 2020.


Making pronouncements about something that does not occur...

Gee, that's what they said when I said Hunter Biden would be selling paintings for hundreds of thousands of dollars!

From the Justice Department's website:
"where threats of violence may not constitute federal crimes."
1) That has to be defined. Is a parent raising their voice considered a threat.

Your question is answered in the statement you truncated Vic. Try reading it. 

2) We are all against violence. It is the job of local police to address local problems .

Since 'we' includes all of the RW assholes that have sent threatening mail, made threatening social media posts and made threatening phone calls, you comment is naïve at best. 

3) Biden's Justice Department could NEVER be trusted with policing parents.

You are talking about several events that occurred at different places and different times. If someone does something that breaks the law, they should be held accountable for their actions. I congratulate you on your total indifference to the location of of the actions. I think that an angry mob attacking the very seat of our democracy deserves to sit and think about what they have done and just where they did it. We are not supposed to stoop to the level of "unruly mob" actions, but that is what you are condoning, that is what the memo was about. It was not against parents at all. Not one little bit. It is about people using their perception of might to bully their ill conceived and fraudulent ideas into the mainstream and the DOJ serving up a reminder that the mob will not win. It is not against debate, it is against the lowering of standards to the, "He who shouts loudest, wins," theory of discussion.

And how great a difference from that is barricading and setting fire to police stations with people still inside or laying seige to a Federal Couthouse. Again: Why do one set of perpetrators go free, (even with the vice president setting up a bail fund for them) and another group is detained for 8 or 9 months without a trial?   Don't you see that both things are unlawful and immoral?

If congratulations are in order, I suppose we should congratulate you on your total indifference to the severity of the actions in question.  

On one hand, we have a group of people who rioted, broke into the US Capitol building, took selfies, wandered around shouting for a couple of hours, and then pissed off for happy hour.

On the other hand, we have a group of people who rioted, seized a city center, declared independence from the United States, and held the territory for a month while they terrorized the residents.

While the US Capitol riot is arguably more serious an action than a riot somewhere else because of the nature of the location, a three-hour riot in no way approaches the severity of a month-long attempted secession from the United States.  Yet we have a federal commission to investigate the less egregious of these situations.

The double standard on display is appalling and is perpetuated by many people with an almost religious devotion, to the near complete destruction of their credibility.

 the summer 2020 riots resulted in some 15 times more injured police officers, 30 times as many arrests, and estimated damages in dollar terms up to 1,300 times more costly than those of the Capitol riot. George Floyd rioters were reported to have used more sophisticated and dangerous tactics than did the Capitol rioters, and in some cases weapons of greater lethality.

According to an April report by The Guardian , at least 90 percent of charges against Black Lives Matter protesters in a dozen jurisdictions were dropped, dismissed or not filed. In Houston and Los Angeles, The Guardian found, 93 percent of charges were either dropped or never filed; in some cities like Dallas and Philadelphia, that number rose to 95 percent of charges dropped or never prosecuted. Meanwhile, in San Francisco, 100 percent of 127 cases were dropped.

First off, they were not in the city center, which is taken to mean the seat of power, they were at the southern end of the Capitol Hill region, which is not as glamorous as it sounds. Secondly, the area that they "Held" was only a few blocks in area, a large portion of which was a park.

The election certification was delayed a few hours.  A "monumental upheaval" of society is shorter than a transatlantic flight?  Riiiight.

So if there is a thunderstorm and the power goes out for a full day, what do we call that?  An "apocalypse"?     

where the where a mob threatened and fully intended to upset the course of Congress and democracy on the shear weight of lies from their beloved cult leader.

You want us to believe that a group of Trump-loving gun nuts intended some sort of insurrection, and the only person shot was one of them?  Riiiight.  They must have accidentally left all their AR-15s at the hotel.  

In most "insurrections"  the participants storm the capitol or whatever they're going to storm and destroy stuff, burn stuff, take hostages, hold that location for as long as possible, and then try to install themselves as rulers.  You know....like they did in Seattle.

The country shuddered.

A third of the country shuddered.  Another third cheered.  And then the final third rolled our eyes at the moron zealots in both other groups.

First off, they were not in the city center, which is taken to mean the seat of power, they were at the southern end of the Capitol Hill region, which is not as glamorous as it sounds.

Well that makes it all better then. *eyeroll*   Declaring independence is fine, so long as it's done in the correct neighborhood.  That's not completely batshit or anything. 

Secondly, the area that they "Held" was only a few blocks in area, a large portion of which was a park. I doubt that you could see the portion of land if it were highlighted on a map showing all of Seattle, it is that small of an area.

Pertinent... like the fact they declared independence from the United States.  Like the rapes that were reported or the murders that took place or the residents who were extorted while the police stood and watched....for a month.  Like the fact that they, unlike the DC rioters, held their ground violently and had to be removed by force.  Pertinent like that?

Donald Trump wanted to and intended to steal the election. The only thing that stopped him is that Pence would not go along with it . And truthfully, he probably could not have gotten enough support in Congress to complete the scheme. 

For you to claim that Jan 6 was not a big deal because the insurrection was not completed is offensive. 

The people who wanted to enter the floor of the House Of Representatives  (the doorway where Ashley Babbitt was shot and killed) were intending to do , what?  What do you think they were intending to do after they bashed in a locked and barricaded door?  Go in and shake hands with the representatives? 

They wanted to get in there and raise hell and intimidate the representatives into doing what Trump wanted. 

Because it failed does not mean that was not the intent.

Strangely enough John, we're all aware how you feel about Trump.

So Pence wasn't the only thing, then.  Excellent.  We're making progress.  Next step is that we'll agree that in the real world on planet Earth, it was never going to happen, and sane Americans understood that at the time.

For you to claim that Jan 6 was not a big deal because the insurrection was not completed is offensive. 

You being offended is entirely your decision. I don't care.

I'm sure they intended to have a complete tantrum, beat the hell out of a few Congressmen, some of whom would probably not have survived.  

That's a terrible thing and they deserve prosecution, but it's not an insurrection, any more Gabby Giffords or Steve Scalise or even JFK being shot was an insurrection.

They wanted to get in there and raise hell and intimidate the representatives into doing what Trump wanted. 

You're desperate to give them credit for a level of organization and planning for which there is zero evidence.

If that's what they really intended, they would have been heavily armed and would not have stopped until they found where all the legislators were hiding.  You act like absolutely none of these people are gun owners.  If that was their intent, assault rifles would have been involved.

We are in a sorry state when so many people make light of an effort to overthrow our government. 

We're in a sorry state when some riots are nothing to worry about and other riots demand a congressional commission.  Nancy Pelosi's desk is no more important than the desks of thousands of small business owners who saw theirs burned or looted last summer.  When the elected representatives become more important than the people they represent, democracy ceases to exist.

This is why our "unity" issues are far from over. 

Your idea of unity requires everybody else to validate your emotions on every topic, which isn't ever going to happen.

The purpose of the Capitol Building rally was "stop the steal".  Did people travel from all over the country to "stop the steal" by chanting outside on the Capitol Building steps?

It took the mob a very short amount of time to breach the police lines and break into the Capitol. There was no hesitation, there was no questioning by the mob if this was the right thing to do - they were going in there to "stop the steal" .

Because the effort was not "planned' you say it was insignificant. They were going to do whatever they could. They caused the Senate and the House to be evacuated.  Trump was praying that they would be able to intimidate Pence into doing the Eastman plan. 

You can bloviate your nonsense all night about this, the Jan 6 committee is going forward and hopefully it is all going to come out.

People routinely travel from all over the country to chant outside on the Capitol Building steps for all sorts of shit.  They do it with the Supreme Court, too.  So originally, yeah, that was probably the idea.

It took the mob a very short amount of time to breach the police lines and break into the Capitol. 

It took a lot longer than it would have if they had been armed like they really intended some sort of coup.

There was no hesitation, there was no questioning by the mob if this was the right thing to do - they were going in there to "stop the steal" .

How many rioting mobs question "is this the right thing to do"?  I'm curious.  Do they normally take some sort of vote before they loot someplace?  Is there an app for that?

Because the effort was not "planned' you say it was insignificant.

I've said nothing of the sort.  That's a complete misrepresentation on multiple levels.

They were going to do whatever they could.

That's just stupid.  They could have burned the place down.  They could have broken every statue in the Statuary Hall.  They could have taken a shit on Nancy Pelosi's desk.  They could have stolen whatever they wanted.  God knows most other "protesters" would have done just that.

They could have stayed around long enough to search for and find wherever Congress had been moved.  

They caused the Senate and the House to be evacuated.  Trump was praying that they would be able to intimidate Pence into doing the Eastman plan.

I doubt Trump actually prays for very much.  Nobody cares what he prays about anyway. 

You can bloviate your nonsense all night about this, the Jan 6 committee is going forward and hopefully it is all going to come out. 

The FBI has already said there isn't any evidence of Trump organizing some sort of plot.  Frankly, there isn't much evidence of Trump organizing much of anything, ever, so that's hardly surprising.

But it will certainly go forward.  Pelosi and Feinstein have already shown they're experts at political theatre and alternate reality. They'll drag this out as long as they can.  They recognize that the Republican Party is fairly deeply divided and keeping the Trump morons energized keeps that division going.

Besides, as soon as they stop talking about Trump they'll have to start talking about Biden, or...more painfully....his potential successor.  They don't want to have to do that.

When you look this topic up in a search, most of what we see is far right opinion from garbage conspiracy sites.  I have a strong feeling that the business of Panorama Education is not promoting critical race theory, since no US public school districts teach critical race theory.  Whether or not, along with much other educational software, they sell any material related to teaching kids about racism , I dont know. 

Can any of you right wingers here show some evidence that the company of Merrick Garlands daughters husband (AG Garland's son in law) sells material promoting critical race theory?  Nutjob websites do not count as evidence.

Now you are learning about stories that the MSM refuses to cover. Have you ever searched for a story that couldn't be found on the first few pages of Google?  Probably not. Let me give you one example. Do you remember the O J Simpson trial? I used to watch that religiously. One day, early in the trial, the jury was taken out to the murder site. One of the jurors was wearing an NFL O J Simpson jacket. When they returned the defense asked that he be removed from the jury based on that fact. He was removed. A lone reporter interviewed him and he told that tv reporter that the jury was eventually going to acquit Simpson. He explained "They are already singing he's our brother."  Very little was made of it, but I never forgot it. Years later when I was on a forum like this I sought to use that incident in a discussion. When I searched for it on Google, I couldn't find it - AT ALL.  From time to time I'll make that search. I have yet to find it, but I know it happened.

I didnt continue to search for multiple articles about it, but this one turned up immediately

Judge Lance A. Ito removed Mr. Knox from the jury for failing to disclose on his jury questionnaire that he had once been charged with kidnapping. That fact surfaced, Mr. Knox recalled bitterly, because prosecutors, convinced he was in awe of Mr. Simpson, started an investigation that Mr. Knox said was designed to remove him from the panel. Early in the trial, Mr. Knox was the juror who wore a San Francisco '49ers jacket and cap while touring the crime scene and later stared intently at the celebrity photographs and trohpies in Mr. Simpson's home.

Now you are learning about stories that the MSM refuses to cover.

Over the years I have looked at dozens of right wing sites. I would say the vast majority of them are unreliable factually, particularly in their commentary. Sometimes they will reprint a story from a mainstream site and those would be their most accurate stories. 

When a "scandal" breaks about a left wing figure, the first thing I do is copy the main description of the allegation and then paste that into search. If the great majority  of the first 25 or 50 sites that appear in the search results are fringe right wing sites I have a pretty good idea the story is bogus. This happens all the time.

It also happens when a story has yet to be verified. The classic example would be when Buzzfeed broke the Steele Dossier story, while the MSM already knew of it, yet could not verify it and thus, sat on it. Now that was a case of the MSM acting as journalists and seeking verification. It is but one example.

Quite possibly the only positive thing we've reaped from this pandemic is that American parents, guardians, grandparents - and Americans in general - are now very aware that Marxist indoctrination/propaganda has replaced fact-based education in our schools. 

It seems that a large group (NSBA? NEA? AFT?) wrote to the White House and powerfully complained about "domestic terrorist" parents who simply used their First Amendment rights to speak at their local BoE meetings.

True to form, Biden's timid WH obeyed and squelched opposition to its Marxist agenda by authorizing its powerful AG, DoJ, and FBI to intimidate and/or silence non-violent parents, grandparents, and guardians at their local BoE meetings.

Opposing parent group? So any concerns parents bring to school administrators make them opponents rather than caretakers invested in their children’s well-being?

They filled people's heads with bullshit that how dare people indoctrinate their kids, make them wear masks etc. Tell them they have to take the school boards back, tell them to go to these meeting and demand things...

Yeah. Let me let me quote what Steve Bannon said on a podcast. He said, "the path to save the nation is very simple. It's going to go through the school boards." So expand a little bit more about what it would mean to have conservative-leaning school boards, what it would mean for conservative politics and politicians.

And this is something we found in our reporting, that conservative groups, like The Heritage Foundation, which is a think tank, have been hosting calls between activists leading some of these on-the-ground parent groups and conservative lawmakers to talk about the different bills, the different legislation that they've been pushing through.

.

So ALEC, like the Heritage Foundation, is one of the groups that have been hosting webinars, especially over the winter between the election and the inauguration of Biden, to talk about critical race theory. And so this predates this wave of activism we've seen confronting school boards, where they were getting together and talking about how critical race theory was infiltrating schools and what needed to be done to stop it. And essentially, that's one of the ways that you can look at how this sort of gestates before it reaches local parents, who then show up at school boards to talk about it.

.

Yeah. So one of the first groups that sprouted up around this started last summer. It's called No Left Turn in Education. It was started by a mother living in a suburb of Philadelphia who was upset with some anti-racism lessons taught to elementary school students in her town, in her district. She wrote a letter to the superintendent saying that these were not appropriate for kids their age and that this was woke indoctrination. She was upset. She got a little bit of media coverage and then ended up going on Tucker Carlson in September. And she told me that after that appearance on Tucker Carlson, the group that she had started, No Left Turn in Education, shot up from fewer than 200 followers on Facebook to 30,000 within just a day. And she told me that, really, Tucker Carlson started her movement. She said, quote, "he doesn't know it, but he did."

Another group that started from the top, at the national level, is called Parents Defending Education. And they've taken the approach of really going more through the teaching route, teaching parents how to become activists, how to file records requests, how to submit tips that Parents Defending Education can then share with reporters and then gen up more media attention to this issue. So there have been a handful of different groups that have taken similar approaches, though, of coordinating activists and helping them link up with other parents or giving them resources or sort of a toolkit, an explainer of how to become an activist at their local level within their own school district.

That's how they describe themselves. So there's that. Admittedly I've not really done deep research on them.

Parents Defending Education is a national grassroots organization working to reclaim our schools from activists promoting harmful agendas. Through network and coalition building, investigative reporting, litigation, and engagement on local, state, and national policies, we are fighting indoctrination in the classroom -- and for the restoration of a healthy, non-political education for our kids.
