Jordan Confronts Garland over Lies about Targeting Concerned Parents

'Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values... '

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, confronted President Joe Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland regarding the targeting of concerned parents in the wake of critical race theory being forced into school curricula, Breitbart reported.

Garland issued a memo last fall expressing concern over parents becoming involved too much in the education of their children, rather than allowing them to be indoctrinated by the state.

The attorney general noted a “disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff who participate in the vital work of running our nation’s public schools.”

His letter contained threatening language against those who questioned the pieties of the regime.

“Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values,” Garland wrote at the time.

But soon after, Garland denied that he had weaponized the FBI against reasonable parents.

Last October, when testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Garland claimed that “the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation were not using federal counterterrorism tools to target concerned parents at local school board meetings.”

But now new evidence has emerged suggesting that Garland tried to cover up his tracks.

Jordan, in response, penned a letter to Garland, slamming him for lying to Congress and for spying on parents.

“Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety,” Jordan wrote.

He also noted that, despite the parental concerns that have consumed schools across the nation, critical race theory remains as strong as ever.

“This propaganda continues despite the fact that critical race theory is not taught in public schools and remains a complex law school and graduate school subject well beyond the scope of a K-12 class,” the congressman wrote with biting sarcasm.

Garland has faced plenty of scrutiny from the GOP in Congress, though it has been largely theatrical.
