Attorney General Merrick Garland’s son-in-law is the cofounder of a company that sells and advocates for critical race theory in public schools.
Attorney General Merrick Garland recently issued a memorandum stating the Department of Justice would seek prosecution against parents who protested the teaching of critical race theory in public schools.
Attorney General Merrick Garland testified that there is no conflict of interest between those two statements.
Are you paying attention yet?
On Thursday, Garland testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee where he received a grilling from GOP Rep. Mike Johnson on his willingness to prosecute parents against critical race theory while his son-in-law profits it.
Johnson said Garland was using the authority of the Justice Department “to advance far left policies and attack Republican-led state actions and erode constitutional norms.”

Many Republicans have voiced their concerns that Garland’s memo was issued five days after the National School Board Association (NSBA) sent a letter to Biden’s administration which referred to parents “heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes.”
Still, the Attorney General sees nothing wrong with this series of events, even calling the communication between the NSBA and the White House “totally appropriate.”
If you weren’t already aware, CRT holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies.
Earlier this month, House Republicans wrote a letter to Garland calling for an ethics investigation into allegations that he has “a financial stake in local school boards adopting a far-left educational curriculum” over reports that his son-in-law is the co-founder of Panorama Education, Inc., a company that publishes and sells Critical Race Theory and ‘anti-racism’ materials and works with school districts nationwide to obtain and analyze data on students.
