Attorney General Merrick Garland acted to protect his son-in law’s profits when he signed a memorandum on Monday that instructed the Justice Department to investigate and prosecute parents who express concerns about anti-white racism in public schools.
Garland’s daughter, Rebecca Garland, is married to Xan Tanner, who co-founded a company that provides public schools with curricular materials promoting Critical Race Theory and other left-wing propaganda, the Conservative Tree House reported.
The two graduated from Yale and married in 2018.
Tanner’s company, Panorama Education, profits from materials that push Social Emotional Learning, Equity and Inclusion—academic jargon used to disguise Marxist indoctrination focused on class, race, sex and sexual orientation, as well as feelings and personal experience.
Panorama has a massive clientele, including the New York City Department of Education, Clark County School District in Nevada, Dallas ISD in Texas and the Hawaii Department of Education.
Panorama’s financial connections with Democratic Party donors and Big Tech moguls run deep.
The company reported in early September that it raised $60 million from numerous investors, such as the Owl Ventures, Emerson Collective, Uncork Capital, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and Tao Capital Partners.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, run the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative together.
Tao Capital Partners, a San Francisco-based company, was co-founded by Nicholas Pritzker, a tobacco and nicotine mogul.
Parents across America have increased their attendance and anger at school board meetings as they see their children ingest theories about systemic racism, white privilege, equity, inclusion and diversity.
These theories land on the same fundamental principle: white people did not earn their positions in society and should feel ashamed for themselves and their ancestry.
Garland ordered the Justice Department to investigate parents who confront, intimidate or harass school board members. He called their actions “illegal” and “counter to our nation’s core values.”
Garland’s directive may prevent parents from aggressively rooting out racist doctrines in their public schools and thus ensure Panorama’s continued financial success.
