“Yes, it is,” Garland calmly replied, prompting Cruz to then claim the memo to the FBI says “go investigate parents as domestic terrorists.”The AG noted that his memo doesn’t say that “at all,” causing Cruz to respond that the NSBA’s letter does. “I don’t care what the letter says,” the attorney general shot back.

The school board association’s letter to the president calling for him to act against “threats and acts of violence” does include a reference to domestic terrorism—language the NSBA has since apologized for and walked backfollowing intense conservative backlash. headtopics.com

At the same time, as Garland himself repeatedly told the senator on Wednesday, his Oct. 4 memo to the Justice Department “says nothing about domestic terrorism” and that he was also reacting to “public reports of violence and threats of violence.”Cruz would later take to Twitter to defend his defense of Nazi salutes at school board meetings.

“Lefty journos are either (1) dishonest or (2) not very bright (or both),”the senator wrotein response to one journalist's tweet. “The parent was doing the Nazi salute because he was calling the authoritarian school board Nazis—evil, bad & abusive. And yes, calling someone a Nazi is very much protected by the First Amendment.”
