TRENTON, NJ – The National School Boards Association has called for the federal government to mobilize the FBI and the Department of Justice against parents attending school board meetings across America. Those parents are protesting everything from Critical Race Theory to gender studies to COVID-19 policies.
THE NSBA calls the hordes of soccer moms and baseball dads an “immediate threat”.
“America’s public schools and its education leaders are under an immediate threat. The National School Boards Association (NSBA) respectfully asks for federal law enforcement and other assistance to deal with the growing number of threats of violence and acts of intimidation occurring across the nation. Local school board members want to hear from their communities on important issues and that must be at the forefront of good school board governance and promotion of free speech. However, there also must be safeguards in place to protect public schools and dedicated education leaders as they do their jobs,” the NSBA said.
The NSBA went as far as calling the parents of American students, domestic terrorists.
“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,” the NSBA said.
On Wednesday, Shore News Network reached out to the campaign team for Phil Murphy to see where the governor stands on the matter.
Murphy spokeswoman Rachel Bucchino said the campaign “will pass” on commenting about the NSBA letter.
The New Jersey School Board Association did not comment on the matter. Jack Ciattarelli did not comment on the matter as he has banned Shore News Network from his social media pages.
