Last month in Virginia during a governor’s debate … Terry McAuliffe … the governor of Virginia … told us that parents no longer have a say in their own children’s education.
TERRY MCAULIFFE: I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach. I get really tired of everybody running down teachers. I love our teachers and what they’ve done through COVID, these are real heroes who deserve our respect. …
“I don’t think parents have any right telling teachers what to teach.” Really? So parents don’t control their own kids. Do you have a right to tell the pediatrician what kind of medical treatment your kids should get? No.
This is the new rule. The government makes all key decisions about your children….
As of yesterday, this idea, unprecedented in the history of America, has the full backing of the Biden administration, in other words, of the entire federal government. …
Attorney General Merrick Garland … issued a memorandum yesterday calling on the FBI to crack down on parents who complain about their school board.
Now, keep in mind at this exact moment that Garland wrote that, we learned that murders in the United States since the advent of Black Lives Matter have gone up 30%. So that’s thousands more dead people. This is the attorney general, our chief law enforcement officer. He did not issue a memo about that. He issued instead a memo about people who are committing wrongthink.
Garland directed, “federal, state, tribal, territorial and local law enforcement leaders to discuss strategies for addressing this disturbing trend.” This disturbing trend being parents complaining.
“In the coming days,” Garland wrote, “The department will announce a series of measures designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel.”
Leftist activists can come to your house with bullhorns. Film you in the bathroom. Loot your business. Burn police stations. The FBI does nothing.
But if conservative parents raise their voices at a school board meeting, they’re hunted down as terrorists.
The law is dead.

Criminal conduct. What does that consist of? Bombings, assaults? No, complaining. It is now criminal to disagree with your kid’s school. What have we learned from this? Well, among other things, we’ve learned the Biden administration no longer believes in the most basic precepts of liberal democracy. Among them, your freedom of speech should never be abridged, The government must convince you, not compel you almost always, and you and not the government is in charge of your children.
Merrick Garland did not give birth to your kids. They’re yours, not his. But they don’t acknowledge that anymore. So they’re happy to use armed agents of the state to enforce their ideology. And they have to, because that ideology is deeply unpopular with most Americans.
Now, why did the DOJ issue this letter? Well, because they’d received a complaint from the National School Boards Association. Huge donors, of course, to the Democratic Party. And that complaint cited citizens who were upset over the teachings of critical race theory and masking of children, which is medically unnecessary.
So the group wrote to the Biden administration and said that some of the actions against school boards “could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.”
Oh, so school administrators are now a protected group. If you disagree with them, you’re committing a hate crime, not voicing an opinion that is constitutionally protected. No, it’s an act of violence to disagree with them. …
They have a problem with you. The person who pays taxes, sends your child to public school. They’re telling you you have no right to be outraged, and the school teaches your children they can change their gender at will and that White people are evil. There’s not a problem at all. The problem is you complaining about it, and if you do, the DOJ will target you like a domestic terrorist using the Patriot Act.
The revolution is proceeding apace. What are you going to do about it?
