The Issue: The Justice Department’s transfer to examine mother and father who protest at college board conferences.

Kudos to The Post for each its latest editorial (“Criminalizing Dissent,” Oct. 7) and columnist Christopher Rufo (“Dissent is not domestic terror,” Oct. 7).

It is obvious faculty boards don’t need mother and father interfering with their actions and wish to make a federal case out of dissent. We do have things like freedom of speech and freedom of meeting.

We shouldn’t be weaponizing the FBI towards mothers and dads who’re upset with issues like maskings, vax mandates or critical-race-theory curricula.

The National School Boards Association has significantly urged that folks be prosecuted below the Patriot Act and federal hate-crimes laws.

Angry speech just isn’t “threats” or “violence.” Calling individuals epithets could be nasty however isn’t “an act of violence.”

The Biden administration wants to be standing up for fogeys questioning their faculty board members on faculty coverage.

If Attorney General Merrick Garland actually believed that First Amendment free-speech safety “does not extend to threats or violence or efforts to intimidate individuals based on their views,” he would have begun investigating the Antifa, Black Lives Matter and social-media and campus cancellation mobs the second he took workplace.

But as an alternative, he believes solely in utilizing the FBI to bully those that object to the progressive agenda.

So now the left desires to sic the FBI on mother and father who’re preventing towards their children being taught hate by the radicals controlling our training programs. Is anybody stunned?

It’s well past time for individuals — and the media particularly — to name these individuals out for who they are surely: They are communists, pure and easy. Everything they do reeks of Marxism: Do what we inform you. No ­dissent allowed.

What simpler means to management your inhabitants than by preserving them dumb and ignorant and preventing amongst themselves whereas they don’t see their freedoms being taken away from them?

The notion of moms as marauders, as “terrorists” and as crazies could fly at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., as a result of this administration is lawless, however nowhere else.

Human moms, like these in the wild, are protecting of their litter till the children can fend for themselves, and people who intercede accomplish that at their peril.

Moms in Virginia had been appalled at college boards that disregarded their concern for curricula that included racial hatred directed at whites and divisive texts that embody garbled historical past classes.

Whose mom wouldn’t object to that as an alternative of traditional readin’, writin’, and ’rithmetic?

Garland and President Biden are fools for pondering that mothers would settle for the crap they’re attempting to feed the children. Bless the moms.

The Post is to be counseled for exposing Garland and his “Justice” Department for precisely what they’re below the Biden administration: puppets of the woke left.

Parents pushing again towards the educating of that pernicious and rancid academic most cancers, essential race idea, would possibly now be investigated as “domestic terrorists.”

Do forgive us for pondering that the AG’s major job is to implement the legislation of the land and the First Amendment.

Thanks are due to Mitch McConnell and different Senate Republicans for blocking the nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court in 2016.

By permitting the Justice Department and FBI to grow to be brokers of the academics unions, he has proven that his dedication to free speech takes a again seat to his political loyalties.

Fortunately, we is not going to be subjected to his distorted view of the Constitution as a Supreme Court justice.
