The Origin of the Infamous NSBA ‘Domestic Terrorism’ Letter Is Revealed—and It Implicates the Biden Administration – Opinion

While the battle over education has settled back into the trenches over the last few months following Glenn Youngkin’s big win in Virginia, we are beginning to learn more about how parents became so demonized.

RedState first reported that the NSBA had sent a request to the DOJ for action against parents who spoke out under the Patriot Act at school board meetings. The DOJ then used that letter as justification to use its counter-terrorism division to add “threat tags” to parents.

But as bad as that was, today’s news makes it all the worse. While we knew that the White House “consulted” on the letter, that was apparently completely underselling the government’s involvement. The NSBA sent the letter not out of concern but organically. Rather, Joe Biden’s Department of Education solicitedThe letter.

Fox News.

Miguel Cardona, the Education Secretary, received the widely-criticized email from the National School Boards Association in which he compared parents who protest to domestic terrorists. Fox News examined the exchange of emails.

The email exchange indicates Cardona was more involved with the letter’s creation than previously known.

President Biden’s Department of Justice relied on the NSBA letter, which suggested using the Patriot Act against parents, in creating its own memo directing the FBI to mobilize in support of local education officials.

On the 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.”

Although the implications are huge, it is not likely that there will be any penalties for those responsible. Still, it’s astonishing to put it all together.

This is how it should be. Biden requested a tense letter from the NSBA, in which they complained about parents as domestic terrorists and urged them to take action. As proof that parents must be fought with counterterrorism strategies, the DOJ used the letter from the Biden administration.

This was essentially an inside job. The administration manufactured “evidence” in the form of soliciting a letter in order to justify Self going after parents. This would make for an impeachable offense in saner times. Or at least it would cause heads to roll for those who were involved. This will fade away, unfortunately.

Josh Hawley was one of the Republicans who commented. who proclaimed today that the “truth emerges” following the release of the report. Other people have been stubbornly silent about what was one the most important issues in the historic Virginia election. This is something that the GOP must take seriously. As a political issue it’s important to stand with parents and resist an oppressive government.

For their part, you can expect the Biden administration to obfuscate about this revelation, and that’s if any reporter has the guts to even ask about it. Regardless, what the White House did was an insane abuse of power, and they should be held accountable, even if that means their punishment doesn’t come until the midterms.
