Garland taps FBI in response to ‘disturbing spike’ in threats against educators

… from Politico

[ Editor’s Note: I have been wondering why it was taking so long to make this announcement. I suspected that it was due to distraction from the ongoing threats against election workers to force them to quit in Republican states so Repub shills could be put in to make sure future elections come out in their favor.

The effort has been going on for some time, and my suspicion was the Trumper central command was evolving and attacking from all points on the compass to overwhelm the manpower of the Justice Department.

On this state issue, typically the state investigators would take the point on the initial investigation and then bring the Feds in when they can lay out initially what they had found regarding who is coordinating it locally, infiltrating the groups.

But now that we know that the police and other state offices in those states could be in on the scam, which can cut off getting any real cooperation from them. It puts more on an already overloaded DoJ plate, portending more to come.

As I had noted a few days ago, the Insurrection is still in progress, but by different means and in many places. It has become a diffused attack, harder to get a handle on but providing the opportunity to monitor who is running the show to build a conspiracy case.

This will get worse before it gets better. We have a lot of work to do, endless amounts I am afraid… Jim W. Dean ]

Last week, the National School Boards Association pressed President Joe Biden for federal assistance to review whether violence and threats against public school officials could be considered a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.

“America’s public schools and its education leaders are under an immediate threat,” the group wrote to Biden.

The Justice department said they’re expected to include a training program and a new federal task force stacked with representatives from the department’s criminal, civil rights and national security divisions.

“Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values,” Garland wrote. “Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety.”

“America’s public schools and its education leaders are under an immediate threat,” the group wrote to Biden.

“These threats and acts of violence are affecting our nation’s democracy at the very foundational levels, causing school board members – many who are not paid – to resign immediately and/or discontinue their service after their respective terms,” the school board officials said.

  1. I will bet lots of these threats over abortion and what should be taught from bible not so much vaccines yes or no. But vaccines no2 probably.
    Counter threats could be insistence of discussing truth, facts and science about 9 11 in public schools curriculums and who really did it – “teach that” (include obvious fact of Israeli nukes being used to really make friends at the PTA meetings)

  2. Here’s the thing Jim; “we” may not know one hundred percent one way or another about the virus, or the vaccines.
    But one thing “we” absolutely do know without the slightest doubt, is this; the mainline media is totally weaponized against its target audience.
    Now if you try to tell me; “but we must listen to them some times,” then I would ask you “how do we know when to believe anything they say, and when to believe nothing?”

    • But I am willing to be colored ignorant, if you tell me “Politico” is not mainline.
      Are they on board with the 9/11 big lie?
      The answer to “that” is always the first question for me.
