How 'bout that. This nice little local news outlet catches the story.
The point is the school boards say they're getting death threats and threats of violence. That doesn't shock me. In the Internet age, death threats and threats of violence are as common as stinky feet in a locker room. Just like it's easy to insult people, call them names and falsely accuse them from the safety of your keyboard, so are death threats as easy as pie. Everyone gets them.
Heck, even I got one once, and it was the only commeter I ever blocked. I deleted a couple comments once, but was always slow to block people. It was unlikely a real threat, just an 'I can find where you live' type. That was enough for me. For me. A schmuck who's a nobody and I still got a threat. Imagine what people in the spotlight get.
Not that death threats shouldn't be taken seriously. They should. But when we act like only one side or another does it, or don't consider school board trying to shove radical leftist agendas down our kids' throats while threatening any dissenters with being shut up or silenced, then we have an issue.
I have no idea if it's about Critical Race Theory, or mask mandates, or vaccine mandates, or any one of a thousand leftwing 'the genitals alone are god' programs being challenged. It could be many. I know it's not as easy as 'Evil White MAGA types', since a local news story covered protests of CRT at one of our nearby schools, and I'd say about 2/3 of the protesters on camera identified as black.
Now teaching CRT in schools is teaching racism. It's also teaching a very communist sounding anti-Americanism. It's a purely leftwing biased spin on the need to burn the American experiment to the ground. If we want to teach that, then teach other alternative templates for understanding our country. I'd be fine with that. But when parents have objected, they've been listened to sometimes, sometimes silenced, sometimes even threatened with retaliation by the schools against them or their students.
So while I am the first to say take threats seriously, I'm the last to say I want one of the most powerful education associations comparing people with serious and legitimate concerns to terrorists. That screams to me they're doing something they don't want us to know about. And for me, that's not terrorism. That's tyranny.
