“A group of concerned mothers held a protest outside the National School Boards Association’s headquarters Wednesday in response to its characterization of parents as “domestic terrorists” for raising concerns about sexually explicit curriculum and other controversial actions taken by school districts nationwide.
The advocacy group Moms for America held a protest outside the NSBA in Alexandria, Virginia, nearly a month after the association sent a letter to President Joe Biden asking him to provide “federal assistance to stop threats and acts of violence against public schoolchildren, public school board members, and other public school district officials and educators.”
The letter asserted that “the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.” Five days after the letter was sent, Attorney General Merrick Garland sent a memo to law enforcement agencies asking them to “facilitate the discussion of strategies for addressing threats against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff.” Both the NSBA letter and the DOJ’s response to it generated considerable backlash.
…Rebecca Friedrichs, a former teacher who was the subject of a U.S. Supreme Court case Friedrichs v. CTA that paved the way for a precedent-setting ruling that freed public sector employees from having to pay annual union dues, agreed with Kohls that board members do not necessarily approve of what is being taught in schools.
“Every single decent, honorable school board member I know is disgusted by the agenda of the NSBA. NSBA does not represent good and honest school board members,” Friedrichs insisted.
“NSBA works in lockstep with the so-called teachers’ unions, so-called because they also do not represent great teachers,” she asserted. “For years, they’ve been corrupting our schools and then used mafia-like tactics to terrorize school board members, parents and teachers who refuse to toe the union line.”
After accusing the NSBA and the teachers’ unions of weaponizing the government against parents, she said their tactics “smack of the communist playbook.” Friedrichs then listed some of the tactics from the communist playbook, which calls on supporters of the movement to “Get control of the schools, use them as transmission valves for socialism and current communist propaganda,” “soften the curriculum,” “get control of the teacher associations” and “put the party line in the textbooks.”…”
