Jim Jordan rips Merrick Garland, the left for assaulting First Amendment

I think our First Amendment liberties, 他们每一个人, you are right to practice your faith, right to assemble, right to petition your government, freedom of the press, 言论自由, I think they’ve all been assaulted in the last year by the left, particularly in light of these lockdowns and everything else they’re doing to us,” 约旦说.

Gowdy questioned Jordan’s intensity against Garland during the latest congressional hearing.

He specifically referenced Garland’s memo initiating an investigation into parents protesting school boards, something that was previously 要求的 by the National School Board Association. This request which likened parents todomestic terroristswas later rescinded by the NSBA after controversy. Jordan hopes Garland will do the same.

I would like for the attorney general to rescind his memo. 希望, he will. We’ve asked him to. We’re going to continue to investigate this. But this is as wrong as it gets and Americans understand it,” Jordan said Sunday.

Jordan also added that he believed the attorney general’s memo was likely afinal strawfor many Americans and parents will no longer stand for it.

I think the attorney general’s memo is maybe the last straw. Americans have had it with this attack on our First Amendment rights and our overall freedom. When you start telling moms and dads that government knows more about what’s best for your children than you do, I don’t think moms and dads are going to stand for that,” 约旦说.
