You always know you’re not dealing with someone in good faith when they conflate critical race theory with the teaching of America’s history. Of course, America’s history is going to be taught. Parents would just prefer to avoid having their children fill out privilege worksheets to determine if they are part of the oppressor class or the victim class.
Reuters is late to the party, but it’s finally covering the concerns of parents. Actually, scrub that; we don’t think we’ve seen any mainstream news organization actually write up a piece from the parents’ point of view. Parents aren’t even supposed to be involved in their children’s education — that’s what the professionals are for. So we’re back to the “domestic terrorists” narrative.
"School board members across the US have endured a rash of terroristic threats and hostile messages ignited by roiling controversies over…the coronavirus, bathroom access for transgender students and the teaching of America’s racial history." https://t.co/IcGuF3bgwk

Nice graphic that Reuters chose to use with the story. But why not? “Local school officials across the United States are being inundated with threats of violence and other hostile messages.”
Make no mistake: No school board member should be threatened or intimidated. But could someone just once do a story on the parents’ concerns without writing them off? Maybe mom doesn’t want her daughter sharing the showers in the locker room with a biological male.
Have you ever considered that the bulk of the country has different views about these issues then you do? It's called democracy & political dissent not terrorism.

This is disgusting reporting. Parents concerned about their children at school has nothing to do with America’s racial history

“Disagreeing with my views is literally terrorism!” 🤡

If they were terroristic threats, they'd be reported to police as crimes.
But they're not because that's just ridiculous hyperbole.

People are sick of the bullshit. It doesn’t make them terrorists. It makes them parents. If students weren’t forced to have Zoom classes, the parents would still be in the dark as to what their kids were actually being taught. It is the only good thing to come from the lockdowns.

The Glenn Youngkin victory taught the left nothing. Of course they're going to double down, that's what they do

Ummm. Not terrorists. The are parents. You answer to them since they pay your salary.

I highly encourage Democrats to call parents of schoolchildren terrorists. Please keep it up. It's working so well for you.

What utter bullshit. Hopefully you’re not a parent. The problem isn’t concerned parents the problem is liberal board members who are pushing such total crap. They are reason are education system is such a failure. https://t.co/KboNXhYN18

This war on parents and their children is not going to go well for the school boards. https://t.co/S4kJclccN5

Attorney General Merrick Garland teaming up with the National School Boards Association to write that FBI memo on domestic terrorists backfired in a big way. Maybe if the school boards and the media didn’t share the same progressive agenda we could get a balanced story.
Report: Education Secretary Miguel Cardona solicited that ‘domestic terrorists’ letter from the National School Boards Association https://t.co/QzXsRiZi2d
