'Purple Parents' Hate Group Disrupts School Boards Across Arizona

School Board districts across Arizona are the latest target for right-wing, Trump and QAnon followers from one end of the county to the other. Bringing in outside agitators creates chaos in public meetings and protesting curriculums they fear and know nothing about. Their goal is not better education but simple disruption.

Recently from Scottsdale to Litchfield Park to Vail – and soon to other school boards in-between – ‘Purple Parents’ has engaged in shouting matches with elected school board members, attempted to seat rogue board members, and threats of violence. These local insurrectionists follow the script of nationalistic and white supremacists spewed on January 6th against the federal government and Democracy itself.

At the bedrock level of Democracy, our duly elected local school boards are being overrun and threatened by forces seeking no loftier goal than the breakdown of our educational institutions.

The forces let loose in Washington, DC, inspire and even organize these grassroots efforts to question our Maricopa County elections and attack local school boards with mobs chanting right-wing conspiracies, racist ideology, and opposition to current health codes.

2. I've seen similar action in Indiana

Seems to be a grass roots effort by conservative minorities to sway local governments in preparation for midterms.

5. School boards and other local official meetings may just have to check residency on attendees

I don't see a way around it, unless it is an officially invited guest attendee.
