More Democrat Reps. Join Jill Biden In Crusade Against Parents Protesting To Protect Their Kids

There has been yet another attempt by Democrats to try and link the rioters who acted terribly on January 6, 2021, to any and all conservatives that attempt to stand up for anything as Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) leaped forward to quickly compare all of the conservative parents that have been protesting at school board meetings to the people that rushed the capitol building on the 6th of January.

The comments from Johnson then dovetailed rapidly with first lady Jill Biden chiming in to heavily criticize the parents who have tried to protest against the inclusion of heavily inappropriate books at school-funded libraries by saying “All books should be in the library. All books. This is America. We don’t ban books.”

“January 6, 2021 will never be forgotten: an infamous day in American history. MAGA Republicans descended upon the Capitol, engaged in an insurrection; they occupied the Capitol,” stated Johnson throughout his diatribe. “Five people were killed; hundreds injured; including hundreds of Capitol Hill police officers, attacked and bludgeoned. It was a day that we’ll never forget.”

At that point, Johnson, who back in a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee in 2010 called out and asked a Navy admiral if the concepty of overpopulation could end up causing the island of Guam to “top over and capsize,” attempted to draw a line comparing January 6 to worried parents protesting to protect their children at a school board meeting: “And people on the local level at affected school board meetings. They won’t forget the MAGA Republicans descending on their school board meetings after January 6, like January 6.”

John declared that the parents who were protesting at these school board meetings were just part of a heavily “coordinated attack happening across the country,” continuing, “Americans won’t forget about it. School board members, teachers, administrators subjected to violence, threats of violence, harassment, intimidation.”

At that point, Johnson pivoted over to speak about the letter penned by the National School Boards Association that claimed that some of the various actions happening at these school board meetings “could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.”

Johnson made the claim that in response to the “threats of violence, harassment, intimidation,” “the National School Boards Association sent a letter to the Biden administration seeking federal help. Things had gotten so far out of hand.”

“And by the way, there’s not one scintilla of evidence, either direct or indirect, that there was any coordination between the Biden administration and the National School Boards Association that caused that letter to be sent seeking federal assistance,” he claimed incessantly.

In the original letter, however, it was acknowledged that “recent discussions with White House and U.S. Department of Education staff on many critical issues facing public schools, including threats school officials are receiving.” To go along with that, the CEO of the National School Boards Association, Chip Slaven, sent out an email announcing that the letter “was sent to President Biden concerning threats to public schools and school board members,” going on to add, “Additionally, in talks over the last several weeks with White House staff, they requested additional information on some of the specific threats, so the letter also details many of the incidents that have been occurring.’”

The president of NSBA, Viola Garcia, sent out an email back on the 2nd of October claiming that “NSBA has been engaged with the White House and the Department of Education on these and other issues related to the pandemic for several weeks now.”

The National School Boards Association later apologized for its letter, saying, “… there was no justification for some of the language included in the letter. We should have had a better process in place to allow for consultation on a communication of this significance. We apologize also for the strain and stress this situation has caused you and your organizations.”
