Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said Joe Biden’s Department of Justice is violating First Amendment rights by threatening parents who oppose far-left propaganda in schools.
On Sunday, Johnson said Democrats and mainstream media have been using the Jan. 6 protest to label all of their opponents as something they’re not. This comes after the DOJ suggested parents who oppose critical race theory may be “domestic terrorists.”
Johnson said Biden’s DOJ is advancing a harmful partisan agenda.
“It is the method of intimidation. His order basically states that if you’ve got a hand in these school board meetings, then you’d be investigated because he’s saying that they’re intimidating school board members,” Johnson explained.
“No, it’s the attorney general of the United States that is intimidating people exercising their rights to free speech and their right to petition their government.”
Johnson went on to say all parents across the U.S. must stand up to school boards and what they think is best for their children, not Biden and his officials. Johnson added he hopes parents are paying attention.
