Virginia mom says activists threatened to 'curb stomp' her for speaking out against school curriculum
Loudoun County mom and Army of Parents co-founder Alisha Brand told "Fox & Friends" demands accountability for the "threats of death" made against her.

Parents in Loudoun County, Virginia, say they have become targets of violent threats on social media for speaking out against the school district's LGBTQ agenda.

"They said that they wanted to curb stomp me," Loudoun County mom and Army of Parents co-founder Alisha Brand told "Fox & Friends" Friday of threats made on the "Loudoun Love Warriors" Facebook page.

Brand said her organization, which she described as a 501(c)(4) that advocates for excellence in education, school safety and parental rights, has made activists online "very angry," leading to "threats of death."

"I'm not sure if your audience is aware of the violent nature of curb stomping, but what it does entail is grabbing somebody by the back of the head, forcing their mouth open, pushing them down to the ground with their face on the cement, their mouth around the curb, and then somebody else stomping on the back of their head," she continued.

"This is murder, it's a felony, and this is what I was threatened with by these activists who are tied to our political candidates."

The "Loudoun Love Warriors" group includes members who appear to be associated with Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney Buta Biberaj, County Supervisor Juli Briskman, School Board Chair Ian Serotkin, school board member Brenda Sheridan, school board member Atoosa Reaser, school board member Erika Ogedegbe, school board candidate Anne Donohue, sheriff candidate Craig Buckley, and Chair Phyllis Randall. None of these elected officials personally made any threats.

Loudoun County resident Mark Winn told WJLA he learned of messages on the group threatening his life and livelihood after he addressed the school board in Dec. 2022.

"[LGBT] behaviors should never have been promoted, taught, or encouraged in the schools that you oversee," he said at the meeting. "Get back to reading, writing and arithmetic and quit grooming and pimping."

Scott Mineo, another Loudoun County parent, told WJLA that activists "went after" his job.

"They referred me to the FBI, IRS, and DHS all because they don't like my opinion," he said.

"They're probably going to sit back and celebrate the fact that I'm unemployed. I'm having a hard time finding a job. And who knows what's next with the IRS and the FBI? I don't know. But they've done more than just put me out of a job. It's impacting my family, my kids."

Brand said she's taken the issue to the team of House Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, hoping for an investigation into the threats and accountability. She also called for legislation to protect parents who advocate for their children in public forums like school board meetings.

"This is a First Amendment right," Bland said.

A spokesperson for the Loudoun County Public Schools directed Fox News Digital to statements that some Loudoun County officials have made in public regarding the controversy.

"Violent threats are never acceptable and at times can be criminal. I personally condemn all violent language and my office will be investigating whether a crime was committed. Due to the possibility of a criminal investigation, I can not comment further at this time," Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney Buta Biberaj said in response to the news.

The last thing any school board needs is a small, loud group of ignorant far right wing fascists attempting to push their small-minded theocratic prejudices on all children.

Correction: they are neither ignorant, political or in any way small.

And those are their kids, not yours and not Mao's.

Indeed!  The last thing any school board needs is a small loud group of ANY activists pushing their prejudices on all our children.  What they should be focused on is teaching our children math, science, economics and critical thinking as we are headed towards a cliff where science/engineering and rational economics skills are going to be very badly needed.

The last thing anyone with a brain cell left is a radical POS school board and public education system that is acting as an indoctrination system for Democrat dogma.

There is a solution- remove the left wing radical school boards- which is happening (far too slowly); or defund public schools.

I wasnt aware of this controversy, so I briefly looked it up . The Army Of Parents is saying a Facebook group of , progressives I guess, made threats against them. AOP wants to turn this into an all consuming controversy. 

I will stipulate that someone in AOP got a 'death threat'.  On what basis should this be something turned into a national issue? Controversial figures  get death threats all the time.  I bet you Ocasio-Cortez gets more death threats in a week then AOP has gotten in total. Yet we dont see the congresswoman talking about them all the time.

I'm not sure I'd dignify it with the term "controversy".   Online right wing Karen got threats from a couple of sad left wing keyboard warriors.

I'd be surprised if any of these people can lift 50 pounds, much less actually seriously injure an adult human.

Yeah, that was pretty specific.    I guess I didn’t know their was such a specific way to perform a proper curb stomp.    Been awhile but form varied greatly in my fighting days.

Sounds like something one of those antifa pussies came up with.    Right along with their “Clock” 19’s.

No one should be threatening violence, but I’d be willing to bet we’re talking about one keyboard warrior. Somehow that becomes national newsworthy. It’s unclear to me if she reported it to police or just called Fox.

Brand said she's taken the issue to the team of House Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, hoping for an investigation into the threats and accountability.

See, I would have called the cops or the FBI before I called my congressman . . . or a TV news network.

She also called for legislation to protect parents who advocate for their children in public forums like school board meetings.

What would such legislation look like, I wonder? True threats, battery, and murder are already crimes. The First Amendment is about how government responds to your speech. If regular people don’t like your speech, there’s not much we can do about that.

You mean since they were genuinely concerned with actual threats, they went to law enforcement (that’s what DOJ does)? Yeah, that’s basically what I said they should do. It’s what anyone should do if they’ve been threatened. After that, if I were unsatisfied, I might go to a congressman or the press, but I’m pretty sure I’d be calling law enforcement first.

Is it the DOJ's job to investigate local crime threats? What threats, specifically,  were made justifying DOJ involvement in threats to schoolboards previously and how were they worse than threatening to kill this lady, or broadcasting a desire to show up with guns at school board meetings?   I seem to remember the DOJ based it on a public letter that cited a parent being angry that his daughter was sexually assaulted in the women's bathroom by a cross dressing male.  I don't remember the left attacking the people who wrote the public  letter, misguided as it was, for doing so. 

uld have called the cops or the FBI before I called my congressman . . . or a TV news network.

Loudon County Sherriff are investigating.   You'll have to find a new angle to attack people being threatened.

Is it the DOJ's job to investigate local crime threats?

Sure, it can be. Crimes committed over phone lines, in the mail, or on the internet can be federal crimes. Also, a lot of local law enforcement agencies just don’t have the resources to investigate that kind of crime.

What threats, specifically,  were made justifying DOJ involvement in threats to schoolboards previously and how were they worse

You’d have to ask Texan. I didn’t bring it up. We all may not even be thinking of the same events. In any case, it’s rarely effective to try and make direct comparisons between different cases.

Loudon County Sherriff are investigating.

Interesting, if true. That information was not in the seed.

Don't worry;

Motor vehicle deaths are a very close second; and suicides are rising- guess being woke should qualify as a mental illness.

Looking forward to leftists demanding that teens not be allowed to drive until they are 21.

And if they show any signs of wokeness being committed to a sanitarium until their are 21.
