“Communists! Let the public in!” Texas Dads Arrested At School Board Meeting
In October, the National School Boards Association labeled parents’ domestic terrorists’ in a letter to President Biden’s administration. The letter stated that federal law enforcement authorities should’ employ the full array of tools at their disposal,’ including the Patriot Act, against these perpetrators of “domestic terrorism.” Shortly after, failed Supreme Court nominee and Attorney General Merrick Garland issued a memo to the FBI laying out “a series of measures designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel.”
We are beginning to see how this will play out, as two fathers were arrested in Texas for opposing mask mandates in school this week. The fathers also spoke out against the school board for considering appointing someone under criminal investigation. FOX News Reports–
“Two Texas fathers who got arrested for allegedly disturbing meetings of the Round Rock Independent School District school board told Fox News they ultimately blame the school board and Superintendent Hafedh Azaiez for the arrests.
The fathers characterized the actions to “intimidate” them into silence. The school board president disputed their claims.
“I believe I was arrested on 9/17/21 to intimidate me and other parents and community members from continuing to speak out against the superintendent and five of the school board members,” Dustin Clark, a father of four children in public schools who began speaking out at school board meetings virtually in April, told Fox News.”
The two fathers were arrested in September and have still not been given court dates.
Hafedh Azaiez, a candidate for Superintendent, was hired on a 5-2 vote despite being investigated for domestic charges and a troubled past, including allegedly using the police to silence a 68-year-old grandmother. The Travis County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed it has an active investigation into Azaiez for alleged assault.

Notes from the Editor
We are seeing a continued push from the Left to silence all opposition by any means. It is up to us to ensure that these people doing this never get another chance to do this again with the elections. We may see this as making us powerless, but these school board members are elected; if they wish to silence by intimidation and jail, we need to let them know that they will lose their seats on the school boards.
I have talked to parents about this; they tell me they are powerless. I tell them in a democracy, we are never powerless. We have a vote; use it.
Today, we are seeing the same type of actions we saw out of Wilson in the early 1900s, where people who dared criticize him found themselves in jail; this is where we are headed unless we show the resistance to this is greater than the fear of having this happen.
