NSBA apologizes for its letter to Biden

The National School Board Association has apologized to its members (local school boards) for the mess it made of things by asking the "Biden administration to investigate whether alleged threats against school-board members constituted domestic terrorism."  There's still a lot they could have said, for instance, the provided no evidence and the letter seems to say, we used the wrong words to start this fire storm.  All sides in this controversy over the rights of parents, the secrecy and smugness of officials, and  appropriate venues for protest could stop using the Twitterverse as their source of information.  If there are threats against anyone (like having the FBI turn up and watch at a protest of 25 parents is seen as a threat by parents) then that's a matter for the local authorities--you don't need to go to the federal government for that!

This is the memorandum from the NSBA 


I don't know how they apologize to the thousands of parents whom they have intimidated and maligned. How do they apologize to the nation for lighting a fire in a forest of dead wood?
