WATCH: McCarthy warns “the next thing the Biden administration does is tries to silence you, intimidate you”

Appearing on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said “Who would have ever thought that you would have an American president make a decision to leave Americans behind in Afghanistan now directing the DOJ to try to silence parents and actually separate parents from what their children can do inside schools?”

“And why is this rising up?” he asked “Because, during the pandemic, children were going to school through Zoom. Parents were beginning to hear what was happening in the classroom. So they went to their local school board to question. And instead of making these answers or changing the course and not having Critical Race Theory taught in our schools, the next thing the Biden administration does is tries to silence you, intimidate you.”

“And what it really comes down to, a philosophy. Who is best to raise your children, you or government? I believe the parents are,” he added.
