Biden’s DOJ Targets Parents Who Criticize School Boards

In this Liberty Unyielding piece, attorney Hans Bader takes a careful look at the justifications offered for Attorney General Merrick Garland’s willingness to sic the feds on parents who complain vociferously about the way their schools are being taken over by leftist ideologues.

The justifications are feeble, but the threat to freedom of speech is real.

Here’s a slice from Bader’s article: “Speech can’t be punished just because it makes someone look bad and leads to them getting hate mail.  The Wisconsin Supreme Court made that clear when it ruled in favor of a conservative professor whose criticism of a bossy progressive instructor led to her getting hostile emails and hate mail from angry members of the public. (See McAdams v. Marquette University (2018)). So even if a school board receives angry emails after a parent calls films them or them “Marxist,” that’s still speech protected by the First Amendment.”

Read the whole thing.

The Biden Regime has no respect for the Constitution or any law that restricts federal power and will get away with violations as long as possible.
