(Headline USA) The infamous letter from the National School Boards Association that compared concerned parents to “domestic terrorists” originally included a plea for the Biden administration to deploy troops to local school board meetings.
A draft of the NSBA letter sent to the White House and Education Department said, “We ask that the Army National Guard and its Military Police be deployed to certain school districts and related events where students and school personnel have been subjected to acts and threats of violence,” according to Fox News.
This request was dropped from the final letter, which was sent to President Joe Biden in September 2021, asking him to launch a federal investigation into alleged threats against school officials.
Most notably, the NSBA asked Biden to use the Patriot Act to examine outspoken parents’ actions as potential “domestic terrorism.”
Another section of the NSBA’s original letter that was removed cast doubt on whether critical race theory was being taught in public schools.
“An increasing number of public school officials is facing physical threats because of propaganda purporting the inclusion of critical race theory within classroom instruction and curricula,” the letter read.
The NSBA admitted last week that it should never have written the letter in the first place.
“The sentiments shared do not represent the board’s views or the views of the NSBA,” NSBA Frank Henderson said. “We are focused now on implementing processes to ensure this does not happen again.”
