New George Article by Kelly Walker
Adapted from an Article written for George Magazine.
The National School Boards Association (NBSA) sent a letter to the Biden administration on September 29, 2021, asking that parents protesting public school COVID-19 policies, critical race theory (CRT) and other issues be tagged as “domestic terrorists.” In response, Attorney General Merrick Garland issued a DOJ memo directing the FBI to investigate “threats” to school boards.
Citizens and organizations like Moms for Liberty, Moms for America, Mom Army, and Dad Army were alarmed.
Attorneys general from a number of states responded with a strong letter condemning the designation as “massive fraud.”
“When that memo came out, Mom Army had already been up and running,” Founder of Mom Army and Dad Army, Seak Smith told George Magazine, “and we were floored—how was it possible in the United States of America that our government, the DOJ, is issuing this very harsh statement that parents are terrorists for going to school board meetings and speaking up against all of these things we deem as attacks on our children? But I think the opposite happened. Everything is now at our door steps. Instead of intimidating parents, I am seeing a rise of parents getting involved because they can no longer remain silent.”
Moms for Liberty Hispanic Outreach Director, Catalina Stubbe says, “I think the most impactful topic has been gender ideologies. And that was so shocking—especially for the Hispanic community—that it was the turning point moment to get involved and to take action on those issues. When the SPLC tagged us as a ‘hate group,’ that was the moment when we received more donations,” she says.”
