Marina Baer watched her father get dragged away by a police officer after he violated the two-minute rule at a school board meeting in Gilford, New Hampshire. The dad, William Baer, was speaking out against the sexually graphic content found in a book assigned to his young daughter.

Earlier this week, 14-year-old Marina confronted the school board over the incident, telling members: “I honestly don’t feel safe around you people.”

“I just watched my father get arrested because he broke the two minute rule, at a board of education meeting,” she said. “This just shows that you resort to force at the first turn of conflict and I am appalled. So I don’t trust you.”

Every school board or town meeting I’ve ever attended they do make you identify yourself and give your address. Nothing new.

Ok. Fair enough. I can see it from the perspective of proving you are in the right district to prove you have the right to speak.

However, I also see it from an intimidation viewpoint.

i’m always against any school board, teachers union, etc etc. but aside from the fact that you have to have some type of control, even if it is the Marxists controlling it, doesn’t the video show the father telling the cop you’ll have to arrest me? that’s what it looked like to me.

and on a different note, fighting these school boards is like spitting in the wind. they’re controlled by the Marxists and they’ll give no quarter. until we populate school boards with honest americans, this is what ‘ll get.

I am astounded that not only was he arrested, but how quiet and compliant all the other parents were. What is wrong with those people? What has happened to people’s ability to think for themselves? They just sat there.

Easier said than done. Not to sound like I'm making excuses,and I don't know what anyone else's towns are like,but mine is a textbook example of a small town that's controlled by a few big families....where only the FIRST names of our town officials ever seem to change. It's so bad,and the citizens are so frustrated and disgusted,that no one has even run opposed for the last three town elections!

It's THAT bad!

Why are the having kids read stuff like this instead of actual literature? I guess it is because today’s teens can relate to a school shooting and pooled semen, but not to, say, a boy and a runaway slave floating down the Mississippi on a raft.

He refused to leave because they had some stupid rules. If the rule was you had to remove your pants to attend a meeting, should he have done it? He had every right to be there and question the administrators on their choice of books. This was a totally inappropriate book for highschool. He was defending his daughter.

Parents should realize they have the power and take the "control" back.

It's intimidation, trust me. And in many public schools they've cultivated a cozy relationship with the local police, driven by the aftermath of Sandy Hook, where the police treat anything as a potential Sandy Hook situation.

It's true - their kneejerk reaction is to call the police at the slightest sign of things not going their way.

Give it a year or two more, and a 14-year-old who says something like this will either be very-publicly arrested, and charged with sedition and encouraging a riot, or she will simply disappear.

To make her a target of intimidation and harassment.

That is how the Left works. But it works both ways.

It could work both ways. School board members being arrested by citizens for child porn. And I am sure they will resist and get made an example for the other marxists.

I think there are more of us who have common goals/interests than the minority who "rule" us right now. It's time for people to realize there are less of them than us.

Eventually people will realize that ‘control’ is what all these years of shaming people for common every day things like voicing unliberal thoughts were about. It is why they teach that ‘conflict’ is akin to murder in gradeschool on up. And why ‘bullying’ is the worst thing possible ever in history. It is why “shelter in place” and other such nonsense feeds the mindset and reinforces compliance.

This is what Khrushchev meant when he told the last generation, “We won’t get you but we will get your children” followed IMMEDIATELY by schools being stacked, medical boards being sacked with hard leftists. Now, the children he was speaking of are the school board members doing this crap.
Tthere must be some connection...but what?

It’s a mystery.

And westd there letit hap

She should have responded that she does not need to make address identifications at public meetings. In fact, I don’t think she has to identify herself by name. Am I wrong?
