It is guaranteed by the First Amendment that citizens have the right to petition their government — and school boards are local government — about their grievances.
The Attorney General says “Nah.”
Note that this directive mentions “threats.” Yes, actual threats are illegal. (But why is a federal agency investigating local crimes, and fairly minor crimes that?)
But the directive also mentions “harassment” — scolding schoolboard members at public meetings at which they’re supposed to be petitioned about grievances — and the very vague term “intimidation,” which almost surely also just means “We don’t like Tea Party types yelling at leftwing political functionaries, and we’re willing to use unconstitutional police state coercion to threaten them into silence and going along with the leftwing program.”
Note also that nowhere in the directive does Garland state that the first amendment rights of protesters and concerned parents must be given a high priority.
They’re always quick to underline the first amendment rights of violent criminal organizations like antifa and BLM.
But parents speaking at their schoolboard meetings?
This directive comes mere days after a leftwing organization asked Biden to categorize parents as “domestic terrorists” committing “hate crimes.”
Still no one looking into antifa’s financing, huh?
Oh right — they have first amendment rights to protest that must be absolutely respected.
Now we can be thankful this bozo never sat foot in the USSC.
Maybe the only thing McTurtles has done that is worthwhile.
So parents concerned for the marxist trash being taught in schools they fund with their tax dollars are domestic terrorists.
Not the antifa and blm dirtbags who are responsible for violence, death and destruction.
Antifa is an idea…
It was simply a foregone conclusion that anyone Obama nominated was a sorry piece of trash. Now we see why Obama wanted him; he’s as fascist as the rest of them.
What the hell is going on with the fbi?

Garland is “moderate” if “Freedom is slavery”.. at lest Ted kept him off the Court; where he’d be ignoring the Constitution for decades!
The “Bush Republican” Mitch voted for him at start of year and like all “compassionate conservatives” did say Garland was “Moderate. As ai said BUSH REPUBLICAN.
Mitch is no conservative, never been one and is no friend of conservatives.
Mitch was a Ford/Rockefeller republican and ardent opponent of Reagan.
It is unimaginable that a guy that will not infiltrate and investigate (much less arrest) the active terror group ANTIFA but declares parents worried about the education of their children “domestic terrorists” came that close to being a Supreme Court Justice. Why not just put Soros in charge of the entire court?
Perhaps a better method to turn down the temperature of school board meetings would be for schools boards to be less leftist and radical and to not propose radical, offensive and objectionable ideas. When they commit to teaching racism and hate as part of the curriculum outrage is inevitable.
For instance, if a school board proposed to teach that the KKK was a peaceful, inclusive community outreach group, do you think there would be any outrage expressed?
Maybe leftist school boards should wait until the nation fully dictatorial and socialist before they continue their leftist indoctrination.
AG Merrick Garland’s Daughter Married to Co-Founder of Education Company Selling Critical Race Theory Resource Material to School Districts
The dirty little secret here is local school boards(Louden County VA) did not reach out and request federal law enforcement assistance. Instead the soy boy son in law through his wife, appealed for help because the moms of America have become aware of the teachings of crt.
The AG of the DOJ has been compromised and should resign immediately…
Education Secretary Cardona facing calls to resign after email shows he solicited controversial NSBA letter‘The truth comes out,’ Sen. Rick Scott says
Education Secretary Miguel Cardona is facing calls to resign after it was revealed Tuesday that, according to a National School Boards Association official, he had solicited the controversial letter from the NSBA last year that compared protesting parents to domestic terrorists.
The NSBA’s Oct. 22 letter, which it has since apologized for, called for federal action to address hostilities toward school boards as possible acts of “domestic terrorism” and suggested using the Patriot Act against parents.
In a 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.”
Cardona should resign along with garland merrick and biden should be impeached. Weaponizing the DOJ against parents for challemging the poison of CRT being indoctrinated into the minds of their children is not domestic terrorism.

FACT CHECK: 94 Percent of U.S. Domestic Terrorism Fatalities Are Caused by Islamic Terrorists – Flopping Aces
Recall that the Muslim Obama mandated that the FBI stop investigating Muslims in Islamic terrorism cases. But, those “white supremacists”… they’re EVERYWHERE, carrying bombs with lit fuses. You just can’t see them and the bombs never go off.
Yes, obama had a special place in his heart for the islamonazis being a moslem and all.
The family of the synagoge terrorist/hostage taker is mystified by how that man, with his LONG criminal record in UK, even got a visa to leave UK and got past our US Customs people once he landed here.
Joe has some explaining to do.
One less islamonazi to terrorize innocent Americans. Do not know the details of his demise but hope hundreds if not thousands of rounds peppered his body
