“That is not what the memorandum is about at all, nor does it use the words ‘domestic terrorism’ or ‘PATRIOT Act,’” Garland said when questioned by Congress.
Educational groups, state school boards, and members of the U.S Commission on Civil Rights are criticizing the administration for issuing the NSBA letter. And the DOJ for responding to it without any real evidence.
In a letter to Garland, half of the eight members of the Commission on Civil Rights requested “specific examples” of “harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence.” They also accuse Garland of “conflicts of interests” with his son-in-laws’ business of critical race education.
What is the NSBA?
The National School Board Association is one of the best-funded lobby groups in the United States. They are highly political. And are advocating the most extreme left agenda. The NSBA is calling for the “Transformation of Public Schools Now.” They are against school choice. And their website has a downloadable pdf named “Recommendations to the Biden/Harris Administration.”
