Biden administration's attempt to intervene in Virginia school district's trans policy

The Biden administration's attempts to intervene in a Virginia school districts implementation of Governor Glenn Youngkin's (R) trans policies were soundly rejected by the district's board.

The new regulations dictate that a school district can’t transition the gender of a child without parental consent. These common sense rules were a major part of Youngkin's campaign and stunning victory to win Virginia's governorship.

However since Youngkin's election, there has been a bitter war in Virginia's many school districts as leftist activists work to block Youngkin's pro-parent policies.

Then the Daily Wire reported that the Biden administration had attempted to intervene on behalf of those leftist activists but those efforts were rebuffed.

Biden admin is anti-parent

After two leftist activists were arrested for disrupting a meeting of the Roanoke Country school board, the Department of Justice reached out and attempted to get involved.

The DOJ claimed that due to “ongoing community tensions in Roanoke following the release of the new model policies for transgender students,” they could step in as a sort of mediator, a claim that no one in Roanoke Country believed.

When the Daily Wire broke the news about what the DOJ was up to, Representatives Ben Cline (R-VA) and Morgan Griffith (R-VA) reached out to the Roanoke Country school board urging them to reject the DOJ's offer.

In the letter, Cline and Griffith argued that "parents, elected school board members, and Roanoke County taxpayers are much better suited to make important decisions about Roanoke County school matters than unelected bureaucrats from Washington."

School board chairman Brent Hudson responded to the letter saying, "We have rejected the offer from CRS and agree that it would not be in the best interest of our community to allow them here in Roanoke County."

Local school boards have become intense battlegrounds in the ongoing culture war as parents are getting more involved and demanding reforms to an overwhelmingly leftist public school system. In response, the Biden administration has effectively declared war on American parents.

Vile accusations

Claiming that the Biden administration has declared war on its own citizens isn't an exaggeration. The Biden administration has referred to angry parents protesting transgender ideology as domestic terrorists.

In October 2021, Attorney General Merrick Garland opened investigations into parents following a letter from the National School Boards Association that compared protesting parents to domestic terrorists.

Rather than rebuking that letter, the Biden administration referred the matter to the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division which began investigating protestors. One parent was investigated because she was a member of a “right wing mom’s group” known as “Moms for Liberty” and because she “is a gun owner."

Parents who are involved with right wing groups are now in the crosshairs of the Department of Justice. While President Biden may be hogging all of the impeachment attention right now, its arguably more important that Garland be removed for treating Americans like terrorists.
