As Twitchy reported, it was a matter of days between the National School Boards Association sending a letter to the Biden administration and Attorney General Merrick Garland sending a memo to the FBI directing it to coordinate efforts with local law enforcement in the face of threats to teachers and school board members. Anti-critical race theory crusader Christopher Rufo sent out a tweet saying that Garland’s memo followed the National School Board Association’s request to classify protests as “domestic terrorism.”

The Associated Press fact-checked Rufo and found his claim to be false:

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The organization — the NSBA, for short — is not asking Biden to label parents who protest at school board meetings as terrorists. The NSBA asked the administration to do an interagency investigation of threats of violence against school board members and said the threats “could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.” Biden has yet to publicly comment on the issue, and there’s no indication he or the Department of Justice has called protesting parents “domestic terrorists,” despite false claims to that effect by social media users.
