NSBA coordinated with White House, DOJ before sending notorious 'domestic terrorists' letter: emails

NSBA leaders even altered the letter's text to satisfy the Biden White House

Newly-released internal emails reveal that the National School Boards Association coordinated with the White House and the Department of Justice before sending President Biden the notorious letter that compared concerned parents to domestic terrorists.

Wait so didn't Garland testify to congress he wasn't aware of this?

At least with this one the hostages are not Americans since we haven’t housed Americans at that embassy since 2015. The hostages are Yemeni nationals who work for the US.

"I’ve adopted the attitude of the great negro at the time, pitcher of the Negro leagues, who went on to become a great pitcher in the pros — in Major League Baseball — after Jackie Robinson. His name was Satchel Paige,"

Biden doesn’t have his marbles anymore. He’s trying to regurgitate something and in this case he fumbled over his words. So I don’t think this should be held against him. However if Trump did this it would be grounds for impeachment; so there’s that.

Holy cow, can you imagine the same reaction if some other recent President had made that same quote?

So, the President of the United States shouldn't be held accountable for his words? Is that the position the left is taking?

Why was he attempting to inject race into a Veteran's Day ceremony to begin with? The yarn was not about Paige being black, but about him being successful despite his age.

Paige was a pitcher in the Negro Leagues. I don’t see anything wrong with calling him a great Negro Leagues pitcher. So I don’t see what Biden needs to be held accountable for outside of stumbling over his words which I don’t think is a big deal.

But alll Presidents must have all their "marbles" if they are to carry out their awesome duties.

I wasn't responding to Biden's words, I was responding to yours.

How was he injecting race?
Been addressed.

The story was presumptively about how Paige found his fame in his 40s, well past the accepted prime for baseball players. There was no reason to say he is black or even bring up the Negro League in the story. "The great baseball player Satchel Paige...." would have sufficed just fine. Just because someone is black does not mean "black" has to be an adjective every time he is mentioned in the context of their accomplishment. If his story had been about Jim Morris, would he have said, "Jim Morris was a white HS biology teacher who became a pitcher in the major leagues at age 35?" No.

It was an intentional, superfluous adjective for cause and it backfired.

I guess I disagree. Paige was known as a Negro League legend. He’s in the HOF thanks to the Negro League committee. I think you are correct in that many times race is unnecessarily injected into things so I totally see where you’re coming from; but in this case I see nothing wrong with stating where Paige became a legend.
