We’ve been knowledgeable by the Nationwide College Boards Affiliation that involved mother and father flooding faculty board conferences all around the nation to object to the implementation of Essential Race Principle, gender id politics dogma, and masks mandates in public faculty school rooms current “home terror” “threats” in sure cases to native faculty officers, which the group says deserves a stepping in of the Feds for nearer monitoring and investigation.
Biden Legal professional Common Merrick Garland has indicated that he agrees with the sentiment expressed by the NSBA, and issued a memo earlier this month that directed the FBI to, in live performance with every U.S. Legal professional, “convene conferences with federal, state, [and] native” officers “inside 30 days of the issuance” of the memo in an effort to “facilitate the dialogue of methods for addressing threats towards faculty directors, board members, academics, and employees, and can open devoted strains of communication for menace reporting, evaluation, and response.”
It’s with that in thoughts that we flip to a disturbing incident that befell in Indiana earlier this week that we haven’t heard a lot about for some cause. Per Indianapolis information outlet WTHR, issues received extraordinarily heated throughout a Shenandoah faculty board assembly after Jason Greer, a father or mother who was expressing his opposition to masks mandates for youngsters, was almost attacked by faculty board member/assistant secretary Alan Troxell.
Previous to the tried assault, the place Troxell needed to be bodily restrained (as you’ll see within the video clip), Greer referred to him as an “fool”:
In a video offered to 13News, Greer will be heard calling Troxell an fool. At that time, Troxell will get up from his chair behind a row of tables and goes towards Greer.
“What? What’d you say? Did you name me an fool?” Troxell yells towards Greer, who stays seated.
A faculty useful resource officer restrained Troxell.
“I’m bored with that silly bastard,” Troxell says within the video.
The officer factors towards the door and Greer will be seen getting up and apparently leaving the room.
I wish to make it clear that, contra to the wording within the tweet beneath, Greer was not “bodily attacked” – however that was solely as a result of the useful resource officer intervened. Watch:

Based on WTHR, Greer’s presentation didn’t persuade the varsity board, which voted to increase their masks mandate into January of subsequent yr. The superintendent for the varsity system additionally advised the information outlet that Troxell mentioned he was “sorry” for his outburst and tried assault, which wasn’t sufficient for Greer, who has known as for him to step down, claiming he has proven equally hostile conduct at different conferences.
4 days after the precise tried assault of a involved father or mother by a college board member, Merrick Garland has been unusually silent. Maybe that’s as a result of these mother and father don’t have instructor/schooling unions or fancy coordinated nationwide organizations that help Democrats with which he can collude, because it seems he and/or different members of the Biden administration did with the NSBA.
