“So when extremists start attacking our schools, that’s not who we are. People who only want to fight to score political points should take that somewhere else.”
The National Education Association (NEA) New Jersey chapter released a 15-minute ad calling concerned parents “extremists.”
The ad says: “We don’t agree on everything in New Jersey, but we all agree that our kids deserve a world-class education. So when extremists start attacking our schools, that’s not who we are. People who only want to fight to score political points should take that somewhere else.”
Let’s find some of the “extremist” parents at New Jersey school board meetings.
November 24, 2021: Newsweek wrote about a school board meeting ending early when parents applauded a man’s racist comments. What did he say? Nothing racist:
The man, who identified himself only as Mark from Gladstone, accused the Bernards Township School Board of “teaching our kids about race and how to hate each other.”
“This is horrible: teaching our kids about race, how to hate each other,” the man said. “Teach white kids, ‘Oh, you got to give up your opportunity, if you get one, and give it to somebody of color.’ And then we teach the kids of color, ‘It doesn’t matter how good your are. You’re brown, so you just get.'”
“Nobody seems to care about these kids anymore,” the man continued. “It’s all about virtue signaling. It’s all about politics and it’s all about hating Donald Trump, anyone that’s a conservative or a Republican. … You want to talk about racism and being called names? It’s called ‘toughen up.’ It’s called ‘grow a set.'”
But one snowflake school board member, Ruchika Hira, got her feelings hurt. Play the racism card, and no one can fight ya:
“I am beyond upset to the point I really want to wait to respond,” she said according to the news website Patch. “What is the most upsetting part is someone did come up here and made racist comments. They basically said our children should learn to ‘grow a set’ and you know what the community members did? They clapped, and that to me is appalling.”
The ad made me remember a post Jeff Reynolds wrote in October when the National School Boards Association (NSBA) described concerned parents protesting against Critical Race Theory as “domestic terrorists.”
The NSBA asked the federal government to sic the DOJ, Education Department, and DHS on the parents. A draft requested the feds send military police to school districts, but it did not make it into the final version.
Attorney General Merrick Garland happily complied. In a memo, Garland told the FBI and US Attorneys’ Offices to meet and “strategize” on ways to deal with parents. Garland has never pointed to a specific threat or situation at a school board meeting.
Then the NSBA apologized and regret the letter.
Garland then told Congress the DOJ would still monitor the parents and he would not revoke the memo to the departments.
We’ve also documented the many instances of the NEA pushing far-left agendas on our children and employees.
