On September 29, 2021, the National School Boards Association (NSBA), which claims to represent “90,000 school board members who govern our country’s 14,000 local public-school districts educating more than 50 million schoolchildren” across America, sent Joe Biden a letter. Their purpose was to warn our addled President that our nation’s schools are under the imminent threat of “domestic terrorism.”
Consider the following highlights.
Dear Mr. President,
America’s public schools and its education leaders are under an immediate threat… NSBA believes immediate assistance is required… [Many] public-school officials are facing physical threats because of propaganda purporting the false inclusion of critical race theory within classroom instruction and curricula. This propaganda continues despite the fact that critical race theory is not taught in public schools…
[T]he classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism… As such, NSBA requests a joint expedited review by the U.S. Departments of Justice, Education, and Homeland Security, along with the… FBI.
[Moreover] NSBA requests that [you] examine appropriate enforceable actions against these crimes… under… the PATRIOT Act in regards to domestic terrorism, the Hate Crimes Prevention Act, [and all other] applicable federal laws…
As threats grow and news of extremist hate organizations showing up at school board meetings is being reported, this is a critical time for a proactive approach to deal with this difficult issue …

If this doesn’t make your blood boil, nothing will.
While the Amerika intelligentsia persists in butchering your children’s souls in their grisly game of social engineering, they have the temerity to deny they’re doing it and then to turn around and call you a “domestic terrorist” if you object.
Express concern over their failed schools, their failed curricula, their failed paradigms, and their failed outcomes, and they demand the president call in Homeland Security!
Point out that teaching our kids to judge one another by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character is, by definition, critical race theory, and they want the FBI at your doorstep!
Attend a school board meeting and declare you will not stand idly by while your country is maligned, your faith is mocked, your values are disparaged, and your kids’ hearts and minds are destroyed, and they literally intend to call in the Police!
And heaven help the poor father who publicly suggests that 2+2=4. That, after all, is White privilege!
And woe to the momma bear who dares to read quotes from her local school’s own recommended reading list that celebrate the wonders of prepubescent anal and oral sex. Such a mother is guilty of a hate crime!
Highlight the logical lunacy of those who shout that they hate hateful people and that they can’t tolerate your intolerance? Well, it’s time to employ the Patriot Act!
Dare to challenge the ontological insanity of LGBTQIA+, the overt misogyny of trans-ideology, the divisive hatred of BLM, the pervasive arrogance of the entire educational establishment, and it’s obvious; you belong on a watch list!
Speak up in favor of parental responsibility, parental control, and parental authority, and you’re a crazed loon!
Tell the school board you’d be happy if they’d just stick to teaching your children how to read, how to count, how to write, and how to use correct pronouns; well, you’re a bigot!
Talk about America’s virtues rather than its vices, and you’re an insurrectionist!
Suggest the United States is an exceptional nation rather than one to be despised, and it’s clearly time to call in the Department of Justice!
If you ever wondered how your community’s “fundamental transformation” happened almost overnight, look no further than your public schools, the teacher’s unions, and these arrogant organizations that represent them. They have so effectively taken over our nation’s governing ethos that they now believe they have the power to arrest and jail anyone who dares oppose them.
It’s all about education, people! What’s taught today in the classroom will be practiced tomorrow in our culture, and these elitists who brag about “governing our country’s 14,000 local public school districts and educating more than 50 million schoolchildren” understand this in spades. In fact, they understand it so well that they are now publicly calling for the President of the United States to issue an executive order declaring you to be a domestic terrorist if you show up at a school board meeting to challenge them.
If you listen closely, you can almost hear Joseph Stalin laughing in the background: “Control the schools, and you control the future.”
