Biden, Merrick Garland Weaponize DOJ and FBI to Silence Americans Exercising Constitutional Rights

From America First Legal:
Today, America First Legal requested that the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General (OIG) investigate the circumstances surrounding Attorney General Garland’s October 4th memorandum regarding the use of federal law enforcement against parents opposed to critical race theory, gender ideology, and irrational mask mandates in public schools. Among other things, AFL asked OIG to investigate whether the Attorney General’s Memorandum was issued on Biden White House instructions contrary to the department’s standard procedures, and to determine if it was issued for the improper partisan purpose of chilling and deterring parents from exercising their constitutional right to control and direct the education of their children.
On Thursday’s Mark Levin Show, the America First Legal Foundation sent a letter to Inspector General Horowitz requesting an investigation into Attorney General Merrick Garland. The letter questions whether Garland’s memo may be preventing parents from practicing their constitutional right to protect their children and protest their government. The AFL letter also cites that Garland met with several John and Jane Doe’s in the White House to plan a pretext to minimize the effect of parental mobilization, and the political impact such motivated parents could have on the upcoming midterm elections by using federal action against parents. The AFL letter also cites key dates in September 2021 where the Biden Administration concocted a plan — an inside job — to deter such a grassroots movement by parents by involving a third party’s concocted complaint so that the Patriot Act could be used as a ‘solution’ to the pseudo-problem that they’d just created to advance their political agenda and stifle the speech of American citizens.
This is an egregious abuse. The media, if they were fair and honest, would be all over this story of using the DOJ and the FBI to harass and punish political opponents to impact the midterm elections. Instead of holding the powerful accountable, the media ignore the scandal completely or defend the indefensible.
