Rep. Jim Jordan (Republican from Ohio) criticized U.S. AttorneyGeneral Merrick Garland, the left, and their attack on the right of free speech while appearing with Trey Gowdy on Sunday Night in America.
“I think our First Amendment liberties, every one of them, you are right to practice your faith, right to assemble, right to petition your government, freedom of the press, freedom of speech, 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,” Jordan said.
Gowdy challenged Jordan’s intensity in his attack on Garland during the recent hearing before Congress.
He specifically referenced Garland’s memo initiating an investigation into parents protesting school boards, something that was previously requested by the National School Board Association. After much controversy, the NSBA revoked this request that compared parents to domestic terrorists. Jordan is hopeful that Garland will follow suit.

“I request that the attorney general retract his memo. We hope he does. We’ve asked him to. We’re going to continue to investigate this. Jordan explained Sunday, “But this is as absurd as it gets”
Jordan also added that he believed the attorney general’s memo was likely a “final straw” for many Americans and parents will no longer stand for it.
“I think the attorney general’s memo is maybe the last straw. Americans are fed up with the attack on their First Amendment rights, and 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,” Jordan said.
