CNN Terrified of ‘Angry Mobs’ aka Parents Protesting Liberal School Boards


As parents protest across the country against school mask mandates and dangerous political ideologies like Critical Race Theory being taught to their children, the liberal media has been out to demonize these concerned parents as menaces to society. 

Such was the case Friday morning, as CNN invited the president of the National School Boards Association on to stoke fear against parent protesters, or as CNN called them, “angry mobs.” (Yes, this is the same network that refused to use that word or “riot” during violent left-wing riots last Summer.)

The complete dramatic chyron read on screen, “Intense Threat: Schools Beg Biden for FBI Protection Against Angry Mobs.” Angry parents probably just didn’t sound scary enough.

 

 

NSBA President Viola Garcia was on the program after she wrote a letter to President Biden yesterday demanding that the feds treat parent protesters as “domestic terrorists.” New Day host Brianna Keilar was very sympathetic to Garcia, even doing her a favor by hiding that gross part about calling parents “terrorists” from the interview.

“COVID concerns in school districts across the country are now leading to dangerous situations for school board members. They’re worried for their own safety. After an increasing number of threats like these,” Keilar started the interview, playing a montage of angry parents mostly at school board meetings and protests chanting. 

Turning to Garcia, Keilar implored, “You wrote a letter to President Biden because you say you are under immediate threat, for federal enforcement and other assistance to deal with some of what we just saw. Tell us what exactly you think your members need.”

After Garcia warned of the “threat” school boards were under, which she said warranted federal intervention, Keilar was eager to know what kind of threats “school boards and members are experiencing.” 

Garcia admitted what you saw in the videos at school board meetings is where the main conflicts arose, before suggesting that school board members were being threatened outside the school environment. “And so school board members are people in the community. They go to the grocery stores, they shop with the neighbors that are around them,” she began before the CNN host interrupted, eagerly.

Are they being threatened, you know, when they’re grocery shopping? Do they have people coming to their houses? Are there threats against their children?” Keilar asked eagerly. But even Garcia admitted, that wasn’t the case, saying the real threat was…online.

“The greatest incidents of threats we have seen are the ones that you demonstrated, the ones via internet connections, across state lines,” she said. 

Garcia went on to claim there was coordinated efforts of violence planned online and so she was concerned for students, workers and teachers’ safety. The CNN host didn’t question any of it. After all, why would she? To CNN, concerned parents are the bogeyman. 

“Well, Viola, those videos we see are incredibly scary. We know this is increasing and we’ll keep an eye on it,” she reassured her.

Keeping an eye on angry parents but definitely not on Antifa’s domestic terrorism. This is CNN.

BRIANNA KEILAR: Covid concerns in school districts across the country are now leading to dangerous situations for school board members. They’re worried for their own safety. After an increasing number of threats like these. 

So the National School Board Association is asking the White House and the Education Department to help ensure the security of its members. And the group’s president Viola Garcia is joining us to talk about all of this. Thanks for being with us this morning. You wrote a letter to President Biden because you say you are under immediate threat, for federal enforcement and other assistance to deal with some of what we just saw. Tell us what exactly you think your members need. 

NSBA PRESIDENT VIOLA GARCIA: Well, we need support. We need reinforcement of the support that the community can give us. But more importantly, these are real threats, Brianna, that you just saw — that we all just saw. And they’re occurring with greater frequency. So our letter to the White House really is indicative of the seriousness of the situation for school board members. But more especially for students in our public schools. 

KEILAR: Tell us more about these threats. What school boards and members are experiencing. 

GARCIA: Well, you have seen on the videos here that we as school board members have been in communication with our communities for years. School board members really aim to listen to the community. We’re respectful of the opinions, we understand that there are various opinions and school board members have been working during the pandemic, during this heightened political environment. We have been working for a year and a half during the pandemic. We have safely gotten students back in school. We know those are the most important things that schools need to be doing now. 

And so school board members are people in the community. They go to the grocery stores, they shop with the neighbors that are around them. And so our primary–

KEILAR: Are they being threatened, you know, when they’re grocery shopping? Do they have people coming to their houses? Are there threats against their children? 

GARCIA: The greatest incidents of threats we have seen are the ones that you demonstrated, the ones via internet connections, across state lines. We have seen that the — many of the messages are very similar. So we rarely, I don’t know the number of incidents perhaps in grocery stores, but the greatest number and the biggest concern that we have are the threats of violence, the coordinated efforts that we seem to see because of the similarities across the state lines, and so it gives us pause, it gives us great pause because not only are we charged at school — at school board level, for the academic viability of our students, but we also are charged with the safety and security not only of the students, but of the staff, and the community members that come in and out of our buildings. And so this is a concern. 

KEILAR: Well, Viola, those videos we see are incredibly scary. We know this is increasing and we’ll keep an eye on it. Viola Garcia, thank you.
