Garland Promises Not to Label Parents as Domestic Terrorists, But DOJ Will Monitor Meetings
Garland won’t bring in the DOJ to investigate sexual assault allegations at schools, but you get angry about your child’s education? FBI!
The National School Boards Association (NSBA) begged the DOJ to stop these “domestic terrorists” because parents object to the indoctrination of their children in school.
The good little puppets at the DOJ stepped right in and promised to monitor and investigate any threats or harassment or intimidation towards the faultless school board members.
AG Garland insisted the DOJ does not consider concerned parents at school board meetings “domestic terrorists.” If that is true then why must the DOJ utilize the FBI and other departments to monitor those meetings?

Garland told Congress today: “I want to be clear. The Justice Department supports and defends the First Amendment right of parents to complain as vociferously as they wish about the education of their children, about the curriculum taught in the schools. That is not what the memorandum is about at all, nor does it use the words ‘domestic terrorism’ or ‘PATRIOT Act.’”
The AG cannot “imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children” or a circumstance that would cause him to label them as domestic terrorists.
First off, sir, the parents are not complaining about their children. They are protesting the indoctrination the left wants to drill into their heads to make them sheep.
I’ll repeat my question: Then why did the DOJ circulate the memo and make a big production about coming down hard on parents at school board meetings? Why must you monitor the school board meetings?
The DOJ, FBI, and Garland have not cited a single example of a threat, harassment, or intimidation. Not one.
The DOJ won’t step in when it comes to multiple sexual assault allegations supposedly caused by one student because that is a local crime.
But a parent getting angry over the indoctrination of critical race theory? BRING IN THE FBI.

Well, if the thugs at the FIB and DoJ promise, then you can take it to the bank. They’d never lie, of course. Just some hard-working, red-blooded American G men!
Flush this corrupt fascist down the drain.
My mother used to tell me, kick him where it counts. Even as I child, I knew she was kidding.. but ohhhh.. sometimes I wish……..(sorry Mary)
I always assumed that too. As I’ve become older I’ve become less reticent. Women are often very objective about what works, and it’s hard for us men to accept.
Hey Commie a tip would be monitoring the left coast for fascists.
Do you know the difference between Merrick Garland’s role in the DOJ and Judy Garland’s role in the land of Oz? Neither do I.
I would have gone with The Scarecrow.
Judy could sing.
She sure could. Somewhere over the rainbow. Beautiful song!
Judy could sing. All Merrick does is dance around.
Maybe the next DOJ will make Merrick sing too. (think: interrogation)
I know of one. Judy Garland’s original name was Frances Gumm. As for the AG: who would PICK a name like Merrick? His parents did that to him, probably in an effort to “pass”.
If Barry had his way Merrick would be on the Supreme Court.
Even where he is, he is doing an incredible amount of damage.
On the plus side he is not a life time appointment and has no direct power to long term screw up the “interpretation” of the 1st or 2nd amendments.
True story Mr. Grizzly
My dog, back when I was a kid.. was a direct descendant of Toto, from the movie.. It was on his AKC papers,. He had the only claim to celebrity in our family..
Yes, Merrick sounds very WASPy and Goyish, just like Irving, Milton, Marvin, Shelly, Herman, and all those other names that Jews of a certain generation gave their children to give them a bit of an advantage in an antisemitic world, until the goyim caught on and wouldn’t be caught dead with those names.
If you look in not so obvious places, like memorial plaques in synagogues, many men with such names had Hebrew names by which they were called up for to recite the blessings over a portion in the Torah. Orthodox Jews today have children whose names are Biblical in origin
A Jewish friend/coworker, when hearing a name like that, would comment “Sounds like a Jew trying to pass.” In my recollection, he never missed.
Will they be in Gestapo outfits or undercover as sensitive social justice operators?
Garland’s DoJ is receiving the essence of how Nazis overtook Germany. The quintessential snitch, Karen with a dick. Beyond hideous, beyond deplorable, this guy breathes of malice and contempt.
I saw part of Garland’s testimony to Congress today. He evaded many questions and gave partial answers. He is very slippery. He will never come out and say what the TRUE agenda is.
To illustrate, he was asked about immigration. We’re on track to receive 1.7 million illegal immigrants this year. One of the largest inflows in history – if not the largest. Biden’s first year (go only knows what numbers will be allowed in during Biden’s 2nd and 3rd and 4th year). Garland was asked how many illegals have been seen by a judge or had their case reviewed. He said he “did not have that information”. The congressman asked for an estimate. He had to answer.
That is outrageous. The chief Law Enforcement officer in the USA does not have any clue about the biggest lawless act occurring in the USA. Truth is – he does not want to know.
Some one should ask = “come-on, just level with us – what are you Dems trying to accomplish with your Open Border policy and how does it help citizens of the US ?”
Truth is, if they don’t want to tell you the point of the policy – you know it is ultimately against the interest of America. You can infer the worst.
Just like teachers and teacher’s unions who don’t want parents to know what their kids are bring taught. If that can’t tell you – you can infer that it is horrible and against you’re family’s interests.
Marxists are sneaky. Just ask the people of Venezuela. The regime there did not tell people what they were doing. By the time people realized – it was too late to stop the Marxist take-over. Venezuela was once the richest county in South America. Now the citizens of Venezuela hunt rats and squirrels for food.
It’s not the lying that bothers me anymore, since that is what we can reasonably expect from Communists. What bothers me is the fact that the lying is clumsy, stupid, and easy to disprove. The lies are not even remotely plausible anymore, yet we are expected to believe them. Communists no longer take pride in their gaslighting abilities.
Thanks, Franz von Papen Republicans, for voting to make this guy AG! Don’t spend your thirty pieces of silver all at one.
It’s almost like they believe they will safely be able to cheat themselves to victory forever and will never face any penalty for their lies again.
Historically isn’t that a reasonable expectation? If R’s ever get in again, they’ll do what Trump did. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. He didn’t put a single person in jail. He tried to punish McCabe and now McCabe is having everything reinstated, but McCabe never lost any minute of his life in prison.
LOOK AT ACTIONS – THEIR WORDS ARE MEANINGLESS
Don’t listen to the propaganda. Look at what they do.
All the Biden political appointees are behold to a woke religion. They worship Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. They will never say anything against their god (that why they call it DEI, which is Latin for “God”).
We call it DIE because that is the true and accurate descriptive acronym (and we will NOT want to worship the WOKE GOD (DEI) or allow them to force us to use their terminology and to control the language and the narrative).
They want society to DIE
They want US culture to DIE
They want conservatives to DIE
They want parents to DIE
Good point. Isn’t “Dei” actually plural? My Latin grammar is close to nonexistent, so I could be wrong. “Dei” would be close enough anyway, but maybe they have multiple gods.
“Garland Promises Not to Label Parents as Domestic Terrorists”
Damn white of ya, ya filthy tyrant.
George Orwell coined the term “doublespeak” – the art of gaslighting.
Biden administration seems to have mastered it.
. Promise that the border is not “open”
. Promise that there will be no tax
. Promise that anti-racism training is not CRT
. Promise that Trans competing in sports does not disadvantage girls
. Promise that no one is targeting parents
. Promise to “follow the science”
Lots of promises – either they forgot what the word means – or they changed the definition to mean the opposite.
Trump didn’t depart far from it either. He said the wall was virtually complete in difficult to cross areas. Nobody told anyone in the Del Rio area, which is so easy to cross there is even a nice dam to walk across where you just get your feet washed. In all those photos and videos, one thing I didn’t see was a single foot of wall.
True – all politicians are rather lose with their words. Trump is a serial exaggerator – as was Obama, Bush and Clinton.
Biden has raised that to a new level. To illustrate, consider the laughable claim that the border is not open. They may as well say “don’t believe your lying eyes”.
Funny, we don’t see too many “fact checkers” combing over every word that Biden and his Administration says and declaring it all “lies”. Every misspoken word or exaggeration was termed a lie during Trump. Double standard does not begin to describe it.
They should be monitoring the school boards, not the parents.
This MG is a Stalin-ist 100%.
They won’t call mere concerned parents “domestic terrorists” but they are still considered suspects.
That makes me feel so much better.
If they slip in an angry moment and make a threat, it could be construed as a terroristic threat though, and then Merrick would have an opportunity to walk back his circumspection.
Exactly. All it takes is for one person to get a little over excited and the entire liberal establishment will point at that person screaming, “See? See? We told you!”
And then Garland will call out all the dogs at his command to “protect” country from such evil.
Leftists lie with ease you breath
And why not? It works on half the nation!
Wait: here’s a tip on crime:
Merrick Garland’s Wife Worked For E-Systems, a Classified Defense Contractor That Spies On High Profile People Before She Focused On the 2020 Election:
It Turns Out Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Wife Was Heavily Involved in Stopping Election Audits in 2020:
Garland’s Wife Is an Advisor Closely Linked to Brennan Center and Connected with Far-Left Groups Working to Prevent 2020 Election Audits:
AG Merrick Garland’s Son-in-Law Cofounder of Company Promoting Critical Race Theory:
AG Garland’s son-in-law’s education company supports critical race theory:
Panorama Education, Co-Founded By U.S. AG Merrick Garland’s Son-In-Law, Contracted With 23,000 Public Schools & Raised $76M From Investors:
Garland’s wife clearly was involved in efforts to avoid a real audit of the Arizona voting returns and his son in law clearly is involved in the dissemination of CRT. These facts render any pretense of objectivity and not being the consigliore of Biden rather suspect. It should be noted that most AGs served as the consiglieres of presidents
Except Trump couldn’t find one to do that. Trump was so weak on personnel, if it was his intention to be effective.
Was it a pinky swear?
It was a very strong oath to be take with all seriousness, but was somewhat less than a pinky swear.
Garland did not state that his minions will not be monitoring school board meetings. The mere presence of federal authorities monitoring the School Board Meetings would chill the free speech rights of the parents and dissidents.
Is it too ironic or what? – lyrics by The Police:
Every breath you take
And every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I’ll be watching you
The repubs who voted to confirm him, you get no buyers remorse for this vote
Good news/ bad news. 20/50 r voted to confirm; 40% which is bad. On the other hand these Senators are mostly older, long serving elected prior to tea party and MAGA era. The younger, more recently elected in general didn’t vote to confirm 60%.
Some of those voting to confirm are retiring. Others say they will run again but their age makes it uncertain they can serve another six year term past next years midterm. Grassley, as an example. Hopefully the replacements elected in the next several cycles will be less squishy and more willing to actually accomplish v only talking about how they would like to accomplish things.
The St Augustine routine of ‘..but not yet’ is getting as old and tired as these Senators. It’s up to the r primary voters in their State to elect the most conservative candidate who can win the general election. Those of us in other States can help with a bit of funding but we can’t do the needed work of local grassroots organizing for them.
I don’t think that any Republican would so vote today-Garland right now could not get confirmed to be a federal garbage collector
Then impeach him. But nobody will suggest that. The R’s are professional losers, which they call being fair to both sides.
Oh, I’m sure we can take Garland (D-NeverSCOTUS) at his word!
That’s the only good thing about this. Garland is a neverSCOTUS.
Merrick Garland needs to resign. The idea that federal agents are needed to monitor school board meetings belongs up there with quartering soldiers in the private homes of religious dissenters. Speaking as a teacher, if the National Association of School Boards thinks it is under threat from parents who voice their concerns, it shows that the organization is itself part of the problem rather than part of the solution.
AG GARLAND’S CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
Furthermore – he should resign due to the clear conflict of interest he has with his daughter and son-in-law have a financial gain from race-based products they sell to schools. At the hearing today he tried to stonewall and play dumb – when asked about his clear conflict of interest. He said his memo was only about violence.
He plays the American people for fools.
Well, the biased media will surely protect him – but we all know that he is very much aware that his child benefits directly from his order targeting parents.
“Furthermore – he should resign due to the clear conflict of interest…”
No, he should resign because he is a corrupt totalitarian fascist tool,
“Needs to resign.” That’s just an opinion and nobody cares. To get him out he must be impeached and removed.
Even if they are a minority in the House, it would make sense to put up articles of impeachment for a vote and see which Dems in close districts with angry parents vote against impeachment.
I could live with Garland being impeached, removed, and disbarred for life.
“If that is true then why must the DOJ utilize the FBI and other departments to monitor those meetings?”
Intimidation and censorship. They made their threat, and now it’s a Sword of Damocles being held over the head of everybody at a local school board meetings.
Yeah, it’s a form of censorship by intimidation. On the other hand if the DoJ is monitoring the public school board meetings in an official capacity they may have additional problems they don’t want.
Let’s say the State has strong sunshine laws and that the board has an approved, long standing practice for public comments. If the board deviates from that policy then they are potentially open to federal civil rights suits. 1st amendment and 14th amendment violations.
If the DoJ monitors sit on their hands and refuse to intervene then are they now party to the suit where they didn’t act to protect the rights of public speakers to exercise 1st amendment rights and where, due to the topic or the speaker, were denied equal treatment?
IMO, this is a Pandora’s box or maybe a tar baby for the DoJ. Certainly a r majority exercising congressional oversight could at minimum ask very probing and damning questions in the future.
And yes, the next Congress (R controlled) should look investigate and, if warranted, impeach.
Remember when Hacker Conventions used to have “Spot the Fed” contests?
This could happen at every School Board Meeting!
Leftists lie to achieve their goals. No matter what this guy promises, you can bet it is a lie.
what legal basis , if any, is there for such “monitoring”? None! Thank God Garland was not confirmed for SCOTUS.
“Garland Promises Not to Label Parents as Domestic Terrorists, But DOJ Will Monitor Meetings”
The is 1984 Newspeak.
“We won’t call Parents ‘Domestic Terrorists’, but we will act as though are!”
Edit function needed!
Well, we know this is a frequent reader request, but it’s not going to happen unless we switch to a third-party comment system. And we have no plans to do that due in part to reader rejection of that idea as it would then be open troll and spam season here.

DOJ has time to monitor school board meetings? No wonder we got punked in Afghanistan.
