The FBI Is Spying on Parents: A Timeline

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

29th, the school board association sends a letter to the Biden White House. 5 days later on October 4th, Merrick Garland issues this memorandum with a press release that lays out and puts a snitch line together to go after parents, then 16 days later, the FBI sends out the email that establishes this threat tag designation that was put on these parents. In 22 days. So I have this letter printed out here from Jim Jordan and Mike Johnson, who's the ranking member on the subcommittee on the constitution civil rights civil liberties, and it's addressed to the honorable Merrick Garland. He says in sworn testimony before this committee, you denied that the Department of Justice or its components were using counter terrorism statutes and resources to target parents at school board meetings.

These laying down the gauntlet, both of these representatives are. Laying down the gauntlet saying, this would not have happened, had you not directed the FBI to do so. So what is this testimony that they are referencing? To play cut one ten, this is Merrick Garland assuring Congress, under sworn testimony under oath that the Department of Justice was not using its resources to target concerned parents. Cut one ten. I can't imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children, nor can I imagine the circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorism. So then why mister Garland, honorable mister Garland? Are you using counter terrorism tools to label these concerned parents about mask mandates and vaccine mandates, which, by the way, they will be proven completely true. They basically already are. They will be absolutely vindicated. This show will be vindicated, concerned parents across the country will be vindicated. Because masks did not work, they did not stop the spread, nor will they ever. Nevertheless, this is the state of things as they now stand that if parents express concern, if they voice their opposition, they were surveilled by the FBI using counter terrorism tools.
