On Wednesday, a Virginia mother whose speech against a school board has gone viral claimed in an interview that federal agents staked out one of the latest meetings of the Fairfax County school board, as reported by the New York Post.
Stacy Langton, who gained widespread attention for her viral speech in September slamming the school board’s inclusion of graphic novels depicting homosexual acts in their libraries, said in an interview with Fox News that there were multiple unmarked cars parked outside the meeting, as well as a police helicopter circling overhead.
“This is something that is incredible in America,” Langton said, “and it’s ridiculously un-American.”
She went on to say that she has received numerous threats since her viral speech, which led to the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) ultimately removing the two books in question.
“I have threats against my children by name, I have been followed in my car with my children, they have my vehicle, they know where I live, and I don’t know who’s putting somebody up to this, but it’s obviously meant to intimidate me.”
“Maybe [Attorney General Merrick Garland] should mobilize the FBI into who’s threatening my family,” she quipped.
The presence of federal law enforcement comes after Garland wrote a memo to the FBI announcing his intentions to mobilize the federal government against parents who protest at school board meetings. His memo claimed, without evidence, that such parents are harassing and intimidating school board members and making violent threats, despite giving no examples.
Garland’s memo came after a letter was sent to the Biden Administration by the National School Boards Association (NSBA) demanding that such parents be labeled “domestic terrorists.” The NSBA later backtracked and apologized for sending the letter, after a public records request confirmed email correspondence between the NSBA and the Biden White House prior to the release of the letter.
The rising tensions are the result of increasingly far-left views being forced on students in the most prominent counties in Northern Virginia, including Fairfax and Loudoun County. Among these are Critical Race Theory, the debunked left-wing conspiracy which claims that all White people are automatically racist, and that America is an inherently racist nation, as well as pro-“transgender” policies that allow students to identify as whichever gender they want, and to use restrooms and locker rooms of their choice.
The latter policy in Loudoun County led to a so-called “transgender” student, a boy pretending to be a girl, raping two different female students at two different schools while in the restroom. When the father of the first rape victim, Scott Smith, protested at a Loudoun County school board meeting when it was claimed that no such rape had occurred, he was beaten and arrested by police officers at the command of the school board.
