As parents send their children off to their first day of the new academic school year, they now have more to be concerned about more than making certain the backpack is full of the right supplies.

Federal officials are saying that public school teachers are involved in the so-called “anti-fa” movement behind rioting and “domestic terrorist violence” in Berkeley and Sacramento, as well as other locations nationwide.

Teachers – dozens of them – are among the members of the group, By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) that has played a role, including at the leadership level, in riots according to the FBI and Department of Homeland Security.

Anti-fa is the self-styled name extremists have dubbed their loosely organized network that claims to be acting to oppose fascism while utilizing the same tactics as fascists to stifle First Amendment guarantees to free speech and the right to assembly.

As the named implies, the group advocates “any means necessary” including violence to accomplish its goals.

The groups drew the attention of federal authorities after they attacked marchers at the Sacramento rally in July resulting in at least ten people being hospitalized, some with knife wounds.

A prominent BAMN organizer and Berkeley, California middle school teacher, Yvette Felarca, has been arrested and charged with inciting a riot in connection with the violence that occurred when conservative author, Milo Yiannopoulos, was prevented from speaking at the university.

The group was also able to block a speech by conservative commenter and pro-Trump author Ann Coulter.

Both the FBI and DHS say BAMN and other Antifa groups are engaged in “domestic terrorist violence,” at the demonstrations designed to “shut down” free speech events by intimidating legal protesters.

Even Democrat Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi condemned the Antifa violence in Berkeley, which Felarca calls, “a resounding success.”

The more concerning issue, however, are the efforts by teachers like Felarca to take their political activism into the public schools.

The Berkeley, California school district claims Felarca and other teachers of “actively trying to brainwash” impressional young students into accepting BAMN’s political mindset.

Unsurprisingly, the local teacher’s union defended Felarca when she was fired by the Berkeley school district.

While the First Amendment guarantees individuals like Felarca the right to participate in political activities, it also protects the rights of others – even white nationalist groups – to do the same.

What it doesn’t protect is the manipulation of young minds by people of influence, like teachers, in the school setting.

Apparently, that truth is recognized – even in Berkeley, California.

Do you believe anti-fa activist teachers should be prevented from spreading their ideologies to impressionable students?
