It was simply one other suburban faculty board assembly just like the hundreds of others that commonly happen across the nation.
A typical assembly with the varsity superintendent and a few employees, the board members in all probability dealing with the room, maybe a microphone for feedback from the general public, and federal brokers and a helicopter circling overhead.
Wait — what?
Whereas a number of consideration has been centered on the Loudoun County, Virginia, faculty district and its cover-up of a woman’s rape, shady issues have been happening in neighboring Fairfax County, one other upscale suburb of Washington, D.C.
Mother and father arriving at a Fairfax faculty board assembly final week had been greeted by unmarked federal authorities automobiles and a helicopter shining a searchlight down on them, in accordance with Stacy Langton, a mom of six who attended the assembly.

“That is one thing that’s unbelievable in America and it’s, you realize, ridiculously un-American,” Langton informed Fox News.
“Actually, I’ve paid a heavy value due to what I stated at my faculty board assembly on Sept. 23 in regards to the pornography and the pedophilia that I discovered in my son’s highschool — at Fairfax Excessive Faculty.”
Langton stated she has been harassed since taking part in a “very peaceable, uneventful” protest final weekend on the Justice Division headquarters in Washington.
“Because the DOJ protest on Sunday … my household has been receiving day by day threats,” she stated. “So I’ve threats towards my kids by title, I’ve been adopted in my automobile with my kids in my automobile. … They know the place I reside, and I don’t know who’s placing someone as much as this, but it surely’s clearly meant to intimidate me.”
On Oct. 4, Lawyer Basic Merrick Garland issued a memo advising the FBI and U.S. attorneys to concentrate on threats towards faculty officers and college board members. He stated the Justice Division is “steadfast in its dedication to guard all individuals in america from violence, threats of violence and different types of intimidation and harassment.”
Merrick’s memo adopted the now notorious letter to President Joe Biden from the Nationwide Faculty Boards Affiliation likening parental protests to “home terrorism and hate crimes.” The NSBA later rescinded and apologized for the letter.
After being grilled by Republican lawmakers throughout a Senate listening to on Wednesday, Garland reiterated his intention to mobilize federal brokers towards perceived threats to highschool boards.
Relating to the alleged threats towards her, Langton might solely speculate.
“It may very well be it’s the DOJ, it may very well be it’s [Terry McAuliffe’s] marketing campaign individuals as a result of I do know that is instantly all in regards to the election right here within the state of Virginia, it may very well be the varsity board, it may very well be the LGBTQ group. I do know there are lots of people who’re very sad about what I stated on the faculty board assembly.
“I don’t know why individuals have an issue with what I stated as a result of I don’t know who’s in favor of pornography of their kids’s faculty. This isn’t a political problem, and even the liberals shouldn’t be comfortable that there’s porn within the faculties.
“So I’m not getting a number of sleep proper now. No person’s sleeping in my home as a result of we will’t make certain that we’re protected.”
Langton speaks fairly articulately, however one correction may be supplied.
Amongst leftists, all the things is political.
All the things.
