In order for radical leftists to continue to advance their ideological attacks, they have to pretend not to know things. Barack Obama took that long-standing truism to new levels of exploitation during his administration, reference: ‘Fast ‘n Furious, IRS targeting, Obamacare, Benghazi etc. The list is long.
Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Justice issued a memorandum to the FBI instructing them to initiate investigations of any parent attending a local school board meeting who might be viewed as confrontational, intimidating or harassment. The intent of the targeting memo is clear, the political activists within the DOJ are telling the political activists within the FBI to target ordinary parents as ‘Domestic Terrorists‘ or ‘Extremists‘, and open the door for federal action against their local civic activity.
Lisa Monaco was Barack Obama’s former homeland security advisor and former legal counsel in the White House. Monaco was the tip of the spear in using political activism under the guise of ‘homeland security’ to target political opposition. That type of political targeting is her specialty. Lisa Monaco is now the Deputy Attorney General of the United States.
As a direct result of her skill-set in combination with her current position, it is almost a guarantee that Deputy AG Lisa Monaco authored the DOJ targeting memorandum that AG Merrick Garland signed and sent to the FBI. Again, weaponizing internal political targeting under the guise of homeland security concerns is what Monaco is specifically famous for doing. Today, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley confronted DAG Monaco about the targeting memo. WATCH her response:
This is how they operate. This is how the two tiers of justice are evidenced.
We just saw that chasing a Senator into a university bathroom with a camera while shouting and verbally assaulting the legislative member was called “just part of the process.” Previously, we saw screaming at Trump administration officials in restaurants was not considered inappropriate or worrisome; and that follows instructions from Maxine Waters for democrats to target anyone from the former administration in any venue. None of that was considered “harassment”.
However, now the DOJ specifically tells the FBI to target any parent that is engaged in “harassment” against a school board member.
[…] Citing an increase in harassment, intimidation and threats of violence against school board members, teachers and workers in our nation’s public schools, today Attorney General Merrick B. Garland directed the FBI and U.S. Attorneys’ Offices to meet in the next 30 days with federal, state, Tribal, territorial and local law enforcement leaders to discuss strategies for addressing this disturbing trend. These sessions will open dedicated lines of communication for threat reporting, assessment and response by law enforcement.
The Justice Department will also create specialized training and guidance for local school boards and school administrators. This training will help school board members and other potential victims understand the type of behavior that constitutes threats, how to report threatening conduct to the appropriate law enforcement agencies, and how to capture and preserve evidence of threatening conduct to aid in the investigation and prosecution of these crimes.
