Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) laid it all on the line in a speech in Congress, tearing into the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland for their actions in regards to concerned parents at school board meetings.
After a wave of parents began showing up at school board meetings to fight back against woke nonsense and mask policies, the National School Board Association wrote a letter to the Biden administration asking the FBI to investigate these concerned parents, comparing them to domestic terrorists. The administration immediately responded, creating a snitch line and vowing to take more actions.
Jim Jordan, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, responded to these actions in a fiery speech, asking why the Biden administration is so quick to respond to something so ridiculous while it ignores serious issues.
“Thank you, Mr. Chairman, the chairman just said the Trump DOJ was political, went after their opponents. Are you kidding me?” Jordan began, referring to opening comments from the committee’s chairman, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).
“Three weeks ago, the National School Board Association writes President Biden asking him to involve the FBI in local school board matters. Five days later, the attorney general of the United States does just that — does exactly what a political organization asked to be done. Five days,” he emphasized.
“Republicans on this committee have sent the attorney general 13 letters in the last six months,” Jordan continued. “Eight of the letters, we’ve got nothing — they just gave us the finger.
“Folks all around the country, they tell me, for the first time they are afraid of their government,” Jordan added. “Where’s the dedicated lines of communication on violent crime in our cities — violent crime, that is, went up in every major urban area where Democrats have defunded the police out. Can’t do that, can’t do that. The Justice Department’s gonna go after parents who object to some racist hate America curriculum.”
“Nope, can’t focus on the southern border, where 1.7 million illegal encounters have happened this year alone, a record… but the Department of Justice, they’re going to open up a snitch line on parents.”
