Not exactly a surprise, but the evidence is adding up.
Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona asked the National School Boards Association to draft a controversial letter that referred to the parents of schoolchildren as potential domestic terrorists, emails show.
According to emails obtained by the group Parents Defending Education, association official Kristi Swett wrote to a colleague that the group’s executive director Chip Slaven said “he was writing a letter to provide information to the White House, from a request by Secretary Cordona [sic].”
Slaven and National School Boards Association president Viola Garcia called on President Joe Biden in the Sept. 29 letter to deploy the FBI and use the Patriot Act to investigate threats made against school board members as acts of “domestic terrorism.” Attorney General Merrick Garland formed a federal task force to investigate threats against school boards on Oct. 4.
Again, I don’t imagine that this surprises anyone, but it shows how this developed. There are similar elements here to the Steele dossier in which the accusation comes seemingly from a reliable outside source, but is actually being put forward at the behest of the government.
This whole thing was always an inside job.
Education Secretary Miguel Cardona just tapped Viola Garcia, the former president of the National School Board Association (NSBA), to serve on the Department of Education’s National Assessment Governing Board.
Remember her? Garcia was the author of the recent attack letter sent directly to President Joe Biden that called concerned parents attending our nation’s school board meetings “immediate threats” and “domestic terrorists” while also demanding the federal government target those same parents by any means available.
Which just emphasized that the NSBA and the Dept of Ed had the same basic leadership and agenda, just different letterheads and funding mechanisms. That’s often true, especially in Washington D.C., and with anything involving big government.
Cardona had quite a vested interest in protecting the racist injection of critical race theory into high schools.
Miguel Cardona, the current Connecticut commissioner of education, played a key role in creating the curriculum for Connecticut’s required course in African-American, Black, Puerto Rican, and Latino studies. The curriculum supposedly helps students “consider the scope of African American/Black and Puerto Rican/Latino contributions to U.S. history, society, economy, and culture” and is rooted in “critical race theory,” which claims that America is intrinsically racist. As the state’s commissioner of education, Cardona oversees all educational programming.
The finalized curriculum asks students to “examine the scope and legacy of resistance that has been integral to African American, Black, Latino, and Puerto Rican histories” and includes readings about the Black Lives Matter movement. It also asks students what the experiences of minorities “reveal about the United States, its foundation, and how power is structured today.”
An “expert review panel,” which was filled with educators who support critical race theory being taught in the classroom, had input on the curriculum. One reviewer, Glenn Singleton, founded an organization that teaches students that individualism, competition, politeness, the scientific method, planning for the future, and the nuclear family are “aspects and assumptions of white culture.”
When racists control the government, then they relabel racism as anti-racism, and treat parents opposed to their racism as domestic terrorists.
