Remember the national uproar regarding the comparison of concerned parents to domestic terrorists?
Apparently, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland doesn’t as recently indicated by Senator Josh Hawley.
Or, more accurately, Garland pays lip service to parental protection while secretly directing the FBI to do the exact opposite.
On October 21, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland delivered an impassioned testimony to Congress, in which he insisted that parents would never be subjected to the Patriot Act.

As it turns out, Garland’s statement was utterly full of nonsense, especially in light of the fact that a rather inconvenient whistleblower email has revealed that the FBI is currently doing exactly what Garland claimed it wasn’t: Investigating “threats” against school board official, courtesy of the Patriot Act.
Hawley, needless to say, is not terribly impressed by Garland’s rather obvious quagmire. However, his focus is not so much on Garland, but much more so on the parents themselves.
Specifically, Hawley intends to introduce a Parental Bill of Rights, which will serve as a stalwart defense against zealously leftist administrators.
In a press release, Hawley extolled the virtues of the plan, particularly since it would openly advocate for parents’ active involvement in their children’s education.
“America has long recognized the right of parents to direct their children’s education but we are now seeing a concerted effort by the Left to shut parents out …
Whether it’s Joe Biden’s Justice Department attempting to classify parents as ‘domestic terrorists … or activists funded by dark money who seek to quietly introduce critical race theory into school curricula, education has taken a back seat to radical politics in many schools and parents are taking notice.” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Parents are not only taking notice, but they are also standing up and fighting for their children in the face of such a brazen assault on their right to have a say in their children’s education.
After all, the United States doesn’t feature a Chinese-style education system … and it hopefully will not under the current reign of Emperor Xiden.
With passionate senators such as Hawley, one certainly has hope, however, given that they call for power to be returned to American families, not American bureaucrats.

Even better, Hawley, like a classic conservative, comes prepared with actual details and points, rather than the endless rampaging about his feelings that characterizes woke snowflakes.
In the outline for the Parental Bill of Rights, obtained by Fox News, parents can already rejoice in the rights that the senator has envisioned for them.
“[Parents have] the right to know what their minor child is being taught in school, including, but not limited to, curricula, books, and other instructional materials … [and] right to visit the school and check in on their minor child during school hours.” [Source: Newsmax]
The outline also includes a note that underscores firm support for parents.
“All across the country, American parents have been mocked, bullied, and belittled by bureaucrats and school board members who think they know better … When it comes to education, parental engagement is not the problem. It’s the solution.” [Source: Newsmax]
Clearly not the solution to teachers and school administrators intent on indoctrinating students into far-left ideology, but it it certainly the solution to assuring a brighter future for America.
Courtesy of the efforts of Hawley, parents also feel increasingly emboldened to stand up for their right to question public education, as evidenced by a “Government is Not a Co-Parent” rally that took place on Tuesday.
Carrie Lukas of the Independent Women’s Forum, the organization responsible for organizing the event, is extremely clear about the motivation underlying its creation.
“[The rally was] inspired by all the parents around the country who have been speaking up to their school boards and really challenging local leaders and demanding more responsive education systems.” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Not only “more responsive,” but also less community.
Xi Van Fleet, a Loudoun County parent who immigrated to the United States from China, points out the clear and present danger across the United States educational system regarding the increasing influence of dangerous ideologies in public school.
“I grew up in Communist China, and I spent my entire school years in the Cultural Revolution … What’s going on here is communism. People have trouble grabbing that concept, but I’m just trying to educate them.” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
For the sake of America’s future, please keep educating as frequently as possible …
