School board members have experienced unprecedented threats from parents this year about a variety of issues and attorney general Merrick Garland is having the FBI investigate. Farron Cousins from trial lawyer magazine joins me now to talk about this. Farron, you know what I get the idea, teachers should be able to teach without interference from parents, but the other side of it is parents have responsibility to raise their children the way they want to raise them. That seems to be, that seems to be where the issue splits here. The other issue, really the FBI getting involved, isn't this a local politics? Isn't this local law enforcement, local legislation that takes care of this? Merrick Garland, you understand why he had such a hard time in his, in, in his hearings to become a Supreme Court judge.
Right. And also in the recent hearing where he defended the actions of using the FBI to launch these investigations because as you put it, listen, these threats are real. It is happening. There is no doubt about that and it is wrong 100%. but does it rise to the level of needing to get federal authorities involved in this?
And I think we have to look at how plausible are these threats because that is something law enforcement would look at. And, and I haven't seen quite anything that, that to me would rise to the level of FBI, you know, federal agent involvement. This should be a local police issue.
Isn't this just another softball for Republicans. I mean, come on.
Well, yeah, they.
It's softball after softball that the Democrats give Republicans, this is just another one of them. The last show we talked about the books in the library. Okay. So who wins on that? From a talking standpoint, from a political talk, the Republicans win. They win on this too. This guy has an agenda and it just doesn't fit here, man. Local politics is local politics. It's local law enforcement that gets involved here.
Well, and you run into an issue here with the slippery slope that we have always seen with the FBI. You know, first it was, they wanted to go after big figures like Martin Luther King Jr. We're, we're, we're going to attack him. We're going to, you know, mount this pressure campaign to get him to kill himself, the FBI did, and then it spreads from there. It's, okay, well now who's causing drama, oh, it's the labor unions. Let's go infiltrate the labor unions. Then it was the environmental activists. And now it's risen to the occasion where we have to get the FBI involved because you've got some, a lot of these people will act crazed, these parents showing up there.
Well, they are. Some of them have lost their logic. They, they've got, look, they don't want people messing with their children. It has to do with curriculum. It has to do with vaccine. It has to do with mask mandates. It has to do with a lot of things. But your point being is, I think this is your point, it's, it's brilliant, it is. It started in a slow progression. We go after the mobs. Okay. We go after, but then we go after the union's. Not okay. Then we go after the social activists. Not okay. The FBI has been this ugly little process that was, it was uncovered in the Church hearings. You and I have talked about this. Where that little freak J Edgar Hoover, who was an absolute nutcase, was going after Daniel Ellsberg. No back then it was Seymour Hersh. Going after Seymour Hersh to the point they were threatening his life. This is just another thing and now it's in our households. FBI showing up to arrest somebody because they were, now granted, they said some crazy things. But that's for local police.
