Former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy has now blasted Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland over his decision to get the FBI involved in local school board disputes.

As Fox News reports:

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy claims that not only is the Justice Department out of bounds in trying to get involved in conflicts arising out of school board meetings, but Attorney General Merrick Garland knows it.

Garland issued a memo to DOJ employees earlier this week discussing efforts to combat violence, threats and “efforts to intimidate individuals based on their views” related to state and local school boards and officials. McCarthy, who worked for the department along with Garland during the Clinton administration, warns that this poses a number of legal problems.

“Garland knows this is dangerous nonsense,” McCarthy wrote in a piece for the National Review. Specifically, he was referring to the free speech issues that arise when acting against people’s expressions – even threats.

To back up his claim that the attorney general himself is aware of the problem, McCarthy recalled how during the Clinton presidency he pushed to charge “a notorious terrorist” with soliciting acts of violence and seditious conspiracy based on recorded statements supporting allegations that he called for bombing U.S. military installations. Garland was a senior DOJ official at the time, and McCarthy wrote about how the agency did not want to trample over the First Amendment.

The Department of Justice did not respond to Fox’s request for comment in the matter.

I agree we should stand up to them, but America has not formulated the consensus among the population to wrest this regime from power. Useful Idiots are labeled in that manner because they will also succumb to the Jack Boot authoritarians who’ll be discarding their socialist/egalitarian sheep’s clothing once they’re entrenched in public office. They’re even more idiotic for not studying the history of these methods to impose regimes upon unwary populations.

Parents in the videos were only standing up against harmful policies for their children. There were no threats of violence and FBI doesn’t need to be weaponized against the parents. School boards need to listen to the parents and parents and others in the community need to know who they are voting for in the little elections like the school board elections.
