Associated Press ‘Fact Check’ Falsely Claims National School Boards Association Didn’t Ask Biden to Label Parents ‘Terrorists’
“Contrary to false claims circulating online, the National School Boards Association didn’t ask President Joe Biden to label protesting parents ‘domestic terrorists,’ and there’s no indication Biden or the Justice Department called them terrorists, either”
Parents who are fighting Critical Race Theory in schools by speaking up at school board meetings are now facing the reality of being treated like domestic terrorists by our own government.
Unless you believe the Associated Press, which has come to the defense of the National School Boards Association and the Biden administration.
The AP recently did a ‘fact check’ aiming to dispel this as false.
Jordan Davis writes at The Federalist:
Ridiculous AP ‘Fact Check’ Claims School Boards Association Didn’t Ask Biden To Label Parents As ‘Domestic Terrorists’
The Associated Press issued a deceptive “fact check” claiming that the National School Boards Association did not ask the Biden administration to label parents who oppose certain school policies as “domestic terrorists” even though it did.
“Contrary to false claims circulating online, the National School Boards Association didn’t ask President Joe Biden to label protesting parents ‘domestic terrorists,’ and there’s no indication Biden or the Justice Department called them terrorists, either,” the AP wrote.
NSBA sent a letter last week asking President Joe Biden to use domestic terrorism laws to target parents who oppose anti-science mask mandates for children and the infiltration of racist curriculum in schools. In the letter, the NSBA clearly demands that Biden and his team begin an investigation into “acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials” by parents which they say, with the right manipulation from the administration, can be classified as “equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.”
Here’s the Associated Press tweet, screen capped in case they delete it:

Other people are also calling out the AP over this:
The AP claims that my report about the NSBA is "misinformation."
But their "fact check" is easily debunked by the NSBA letter itself, which asks the administration to classify parent protests as "a form of domestic terrorism" and recommends prosecution under the "PATRIOT Act." pic.twitter.com/W4kg71BQcB

The AP's easily debunked "fact check" is driving a massive ratio and the reporter has locked his account.
It's time for fact check editor (and former HuffPo employee) @KarenMahabir to retract this story. pic.twitter.com/5RI1CQVTLX

Fun fact: "AP" stands for "Activist Progressives."

This is a learning moment. Note the the first instinct of the Associated Press was to rush in to defend the Biden administration, something that never happened during the Trump presidency.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Another day, another lie – and they think we will not notice and wonder why we will not trust them.
Dear Associated Press,
Here at the National Bank of Credibility we see that you have made another withdrawal from your credibility account and that you are completely overdrawn. We are writing to inform you that you account is now closed.
They drew down the credibility account to pay for all the gas they use in GASLIGHTING.
As we all know, inflation is driving up the cost of gas for everyone. Most people use gas for productive things like heating their homes. Some use it for short term and questionable purposes like GASLIGHTING. AP seems to prefer GASLIGHTING. It often works for them – but sometimes the gas ignites and blows up in their face – creating a real mess. Yesterday afternoon it blew up big time. Maybe F*cking with parents is not such a good idea. Not gonna sell too many papers to people who can see the lies are so transparent.
News media hasn’t a care about sales….China is pouring money into them for the spread of CCP misinformation.
Media is public enemy #1
“This is a learning moment. Note the the first instinct of the Associated Press was to rush in to defend the Biden administration, something that never happened during the Trump presidency.”
I have been noticing this tendency as well…….so have at least 83 million others.
Biden’s real approval number is closer to 23% if that high.
Right now his only friends are in the media.
NSBA CEO Chip Slaven: NSBA and school board members don’t want to stop parents from expressing their First Amendment rights. We want to stop the death threats, threats to family members, and other harassment and acts of intimidation.
AP: Could you describe some of these acts of intimidation and harassment?
Slaven: Oh, you know, expressing their First Amendment rights… stuff like that.
What is the purpose of kindergarten if not to introduce young minds to transgender surgery and self-hatred?
Well, K-6 is also a good time to promote indoctrination to compel soul-killing obedience to authority when they are adults and to destroy the ability of the next generation to use reason and logic to dissent against the ideological dictatorship.
Is that a fact?
Well, that was the purpose of the public school system from the beginning, copied from the Prussian system that was designed to churn out obedient soldiers; so after more than a century of trying it may finally achieve its goal.
AP: American Pravda.
They are not called the Apperachik Press for nothing
And boy was the AP salty about Pushaw giving them grief.
Aren’t school boards elected? Why do they need a union?
I (and others) have been calling them the “Associated (with terrorists) Press” for over a decade now – ever since it was found they were paying actual terrorists to be ‘stringers’ in the Palestinian territories. There was a whole blow-up over some video and photographs where the photog actually cropped the shots to exclude the exculpatory evidence. Then the whole “same body, different attacks” thing came out. And it was all AP stringers doing it, and the AP knew. I think that was followed soon after by the photoshop of the smoke from some attacks that was obvious to anyone looking.
Yeah, this isn’t new for AP, and it really shouldn’t be news to anyone here.
AP is one of the worst purveyors of the woke view on all issues.
There are only two ways this goes. A national divorce, or a civil war.
I prefer the first option.
F the Marxist left.
