Ian Prior, a Trump administration alum, notices the double standard of the Biden DOJ: Persecute parents, but let abortion zealots break the law and run amok without consequences.

MORE NEWS: Going Woke Means Going Broke
Prior: This past September, the National School Board Association (NSBA) sent a letter to President Joe Biden claiming that “America’s public schools and its educational leaders are under an immediate threat” from angry parents speaking at school board meetings against mask policies, school closures, and woke critical race theory and gender ideology in K-12 education.
To deal with these dastardly parents, the NSBA requested that the Biden Administration utilize “the expertise and resources of the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Secret Service, and the National Threat Assessment Center” and that the administration consider enforcing “the Patriot Act in regards to domestic terrorism” against moms and dads that were making too much damned noise.
A mere three business days passed before Attorney General Merrick Garland jumped at the NSBA’s demands and issued a memo to the FBI and US Attorneys claiming “a disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff” and asking that the DOJ use its authority and resources to discourage these threats, identify them when they occur, and prosecute them when appropriate.”
As it turns out, in response to a Freedom of Information Act sent by America First Legal, the FBI was unable to produce any records backing up Garland’s claims.
In May of 2022, however, Garland’s DOJ is taking a very different approach when it comes to the disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence following the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion reversing Roe v. Wade.
Last weekend in Wisconsin abortion activists threw a Molotov cocktail into the office of Wisconsin Family Action, a pro-life organization. In Colorado, pro-abortion activists smashed windows and spray painted pro-abortion messages on the Sacred Heart of Mary Church. And the pro-abortion group “Ruth Sent Us” called for an invasion of Catholic and Evangelical Churches on Mother’s Day. The organization’s call to harass and intimidate families at church did not go unanswered.
Meanwhile, just outside Washington D.C., organized protestors showed up at the homes of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, hoping the pressure would instill fear and change the minds of the justices. Justice Samuel Alito has reportedly had to move his family to a secure location to protect them.
Of course, perhaps it is understandable why the organized mobs act with impunity. Consider their political support in Washington. Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer said at a 2020 rally about the possibility of the Supreme Court overturning Roe: “I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
…Will Garland direct his U.S. Attorneys to start prosecuting people that firebomb pro-life facilities and picket outside Supreme Court justices’ homes, or will he keep them on the case of suburban moms and dads that raise their voice at school board meetings? You already know the answers. The Biden Department of Justice protects the woke and persecutes unwoke parents.
