Today, Republican Leader of the Education and Labor Committee Virginia Foxx (R-NC) gave the following statement after Attorney General Merrick Garland’s disgusting memo instructing the FBI to treat parents concerned about Critical Race Theory (CRT) as “domestic terrorists”:
“I am shocked and appalled to see a President cave to terrorists overseas then threaten innocent American families seeking to better their children’s education under the guise of fighting ‘domestic terrorism.’ Democrats have been saying, for years, that they do not trust parents to raise their own children. This dystopian move by the Attorney General is an escalation of that noxious belief.
“Harassment, violence, and threats of violence are never the answer, and anyone breaking the law should be investigated and prosecuted. However, our children’s education is worth defending, and using federal law enforcement to stamp out legitimate and passionate differences of opinion is un-American. Racism and misinformation are worth fighting against. That is what concerned parents are showing up to school board meetings and saying, that they refuse to rear their children in the ugly belief that race determines whether they will be victims or victors in this world. Mr. President, if anyone is a threat to the public’s safety and well-being, it’s not parents – it’s you.”
