(WND News Center) – Only days ago the National School Board Association asked Joe Biden to use federal anti-terror laws against parents who are protesting – and fighting – the leftist agendas of their school boards, who want to install Critical Race Theory and other indoctrination in classrooms.

Now the administration has responded with orders from Attorney General Merrick Garland to the FBI to move against those parents.

Without citing any instance of criminal activity, he cited a “disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff.”

He credits them with “the vital work of running our nation’s public schools,” but doesn’t mention at all the disputes over the leftist agenda-driven instructions being adopted, including instances that, in one school, had students play act in roles of homosexuals and transgenders seeking sex from a classmate.

Garland warned that while debate is protected under the Constitution, that protection does not extend to “efforts to intimidate individuals based on their views.”

However, in one case, it was a school district that sued a parent for requesting public information under a freedom of information law, directly retaliating against her for her views.

The Department of Justice, he said, will “prosecute” events it dislikes and further, “will announce a series of measures designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel.”

While there have been instances of protesters disrupting meetings and refusing to leave, the board members also have refused to allow people to express their views, have shut down meetings arbitrarily, have forged ahead with indoctrination programs to which parents object and refused to allow them to opt their own children out, and more.

Garland’s letter addressed a “partnership” involving “federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement” to address “threats” against educators who are using public schools for their own agendas.

“I am directing the Federal Bureau of Investigation, working with each United States attorney, to convene meetings with federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial leaders in each federal judicial district within 30 days of the issuance of this memorandum.”

Hungary recently took a major step to protect children from having their innocence destroyed and being sexualized by LGBT propaganda in schools and by pornography in the mass media.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which expresses agreement and respect for the wishes of the sovereign nation of Hungary to protect its children against the onslaught of LGBT indoctrination propaganda and pornography.

Since passage of the bill the fake news outlets from Europe to America have predictably begun to fabricate outrage and, or, simply lie about the contents of the bill. And, the corrupt European Union has also now started to attack Hungary's efforts to protect children.

For doing the hard and good thing, Hungary now needs our support.

The bill, which was passed last week, specifically prohibits showing pornographic material or content portraying homosexuality or transgenderism to minors under the age of 18. Other measures include a registry of sex offenders, regulations on sexual education, and stronger policies against child pornography.

This policy is to be welcomed as a pro-active measure against the liberal and LGBT propaganda machine which is steadily encroaching on Hungary's borders, and which threatens to tear down Christian civilization altogether.

Indeed, the same week that this law was passed in Hungary, Vienna's (Austria) deputy mayor distributed "Rainbow Family" information boxes to 350 kindergartens in the Austrian capital. And, Vienna is only about 50 miles from the Hungarian border! 

But, never satisfied with corrupting the children of their own countries, LGBT activists and their accomplices in the EU have been quick to castigate Hungary, claiming that the Budapest government has "discriminated" against homosexuals with their law to protect children, and in doing so, has violated EU law.

However, Hungary's Justice Minister, Judit Varga, set the record straight in an interview with Hungarian journalists, stating:

"This is one of a number of declarations declaring certain Hungarian measures to be contrary to EU law without a thorough examination. The fake news that has taken wing in these statements is completely unfounded.

In Hungary's view, the legislation has nothing to do with EU law. The issue of subsidiarity and constitutional, national identity is a matter for the Member States. Furthermore, the European Charter of Human Rights also says that a parent has the right to determine the direction of their children's development in a culturally traditional background."

And, more broadly, Viktor Orbán, Hungary's Prime Minister, had this to say about Hungary's new law:

"The current left-wing campaign against Hungary is further proof that today, the left is the enemy of freedom, because instead of freedom of speech, they want political correctness as defined by them, and hegemony of opinion instead of a pluralism of ideas.

The new Hungarian law does not conflict with any lofty ideals or European laws. The new Hungarian law simply states clearly that only parents can decide on the sexual education of their children. Education in schools must not be in conflict with the will of parents; it must at most be supplementary, its form and content must be clearly defined and it must be subject to parental consent.

Parents also rightly expect that on platforms used by our children, pornography, sexuality for its own sake, homosexuality and gender reassignment programs should not be available. These restrictions must also be defined with surgical precision. In Hungary, no one has a say in how adults live their lives. In our view, a free adult should not have to give an account of his life in front of any secular authority — only before God when the time comes."

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which supports the government of Hungary in their passage of this pro-active child protection measure banning LGBT propaganda and pornography for under-18s.

Thank you!

He said the meetings will be to develop “strategies” such as setting up “dedicated lines of communication for threat reporting.”


At the Gateway Pundit was the comment:

“The Biden regime is targeting political opponents and using the might of the federal government to abolish the First Amendment by classifying dissent as ‘domestic terrorism.’ Curiously, Garland’s letter didn’t actually specify any credible threats.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported Garland failed to specify “what it [sic] classifies as a crime.”

“Garland’s statement follows a letter from the National School Board Association (NSBA) that asked the federal government to get involved in the ‘immediate threat’ of violence from parents faced by American public schools and its education officials. The NSBA said the incidents could be ‘the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes’,” the report said.

Nicole Neily, chief of Parents Defending Education, told the Daily Caller News Foundation, “It is shameful that activists are weaponizing the US Department of Justice against parents. This is a coordinated attempt to intimidate dissenting voices in the debates surrounding America’s underperforming K-12 education – and it will not succeed. We will not be silenced.”

Other issues that have drawn parental opposition to school agendas include masking mandates and vaccine requirements. Another issue is the transgender promotions that many schools are seeing fit to adopt.
