Breaking: Report Shows One Man Was Behind NSBA Calling Parents 'Domestic Terrorists'
A report shows that the decision to label parents concerned about the forced indoctrination of Critical Race Theory on young minds all boils down to one man. The National School Board Association (NSBA) was blasted last year for contacting the White House with claims that parents at board meetings were 'domestic terrorists', launching a blind reaction from AG Merrick Garland and mobilizing the FBI.
That man is now being told to step down, according to Fox News:
Education Secretary Miguel Cardona is facing calls to resign after it was revealed Tuesday that, according to a National School Boards Association official, he had solicited the controversial letter from the NSBA last year that compared protesting parents to domestic terrorists.
The NSBA's Oct. 22 letter, which it has since apologized for, called for federal action to address hostilities toward school boards as possible acts of "domestic terrorism" and suggested using the Patriot Act against parents.
President Biden's Department of Justice relied on the NSBA letter in creating its own Oct. 4 memo directing the FBI and U.S. attorney's offices to investigate "threats of violence" at school board meetings in order to combat what it called a "disturbing trend" of harassment of school officials.
Previous emails had revealed that the NSBA was in contact with the White House and Justice Department in the weeks before it publicly sent its letter, but an email exchange obtained by the parent's group Parents Defending Education through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and reviewed by Fox News Digital indicates the Education Department was more involved with the letter's creation than previously known.
In an Oct. 5 email, NSBA Secretary-Treasurer Kristi Swett recounted that NSBA interim CEO Chip Slaven "told the officers he was writing a letter to provide information to the White House, from a request by Secretary Cardona."
This, in no way, should exonerate the NSBA. For all, we know Cardona is just the scapegoat for their failed attack on parents. They are under heavy pressure to make good with parents now that many school boards have pulled out of the association, entirely.
