A Loudoun County father smeared as a domestic terrorist by a leftist school board association says his school district covered up his daughter’s rape by a “gender-fluid” boy in a school bathroom, The Daily Wire reported.
Scott Smith, a small business owner in Virginia, was smeared by the National School Boards Association last month in its letter begging President Joe Biden and his administration to use domestic terrorism laws to punish parents who were fed up with the radical indoctrination of their children in schools. In the letter, the NSBA used Smith’s viral June 22 arrest at a Loudoun County school board meeting to justify extreme action from federal law enforcement.
“As these acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials have increased, the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes,” the letter said.
The U.S. Justice Department’s Attorney General Merrick Garland announced last week that he would grant the NSBA’s request and directed the FBI and state attorneys to address “a disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff who participate in the vital work of running our nation’s public schools.”
At the time of his arrest, Smith was protesting the school board’s policy proposal to allow students to ignore their sex and use whichever locker room matches their “gender identity” on a given day. Less than one month before the gathering that was eventually ruled an “unlawful assembly” after parents and concerned community members vocalized their problems with the anti-science proposal, “a boy allegedly wearing a skirt entered a girls’ bathroom at nearby Stone Bridge High School, where he sexually assaulted Smith’s ninth-grade daughter.” The boy was charged with multiple counts of sodomy and one count of forcible fellatio and was also linked to a recent “sexual battery and abduction” case at another high school earlier in October.
The school board, however, denied that there was ever any sexual assault from a transgender-identifying student.
“Our students do not need to be protected, and they are not in danger. Do we have assaults in our bathrooms or locker rooms regularly?” said school board member Beth Barts.
“To my knowledge, we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms,” Superintendent Scott Ziegler replied.
The board chairwoman Brenda Sheridan also asked if the district had “any issues involving transgender students in our bathrooms or locker rooms,” before Ziegler claimed that the predatory trans-identifying person doesn’t exist.
After Smith and a progressive activist who was in favor of the bathroom policy argued at the school board meeting, Smith was forcefully arrested, charged with two misdemeanors, and found guilty on all charges. His sentence for 10 days in jail was suspended “contingent on a year of good behavior.”
His and other community members’ outrage at the proposed policy did not stop the school board from approving it in August despite the district’s record of sexual assault.
“I was told by everyone — my attorneys, the prosecuting attorney, friends of the family, people I don’t even know — that if I wanted justice for my daughter that I needed to keep my mouth quiet and not speak out because in order to get justice for my daughter, which is the most important thing to me of course, was to not come out and let justice prevail,” Smith said on Fox News.

While Fox News covered the scandal as reported by The Daily Wire, ABC, NBC, and CBS passed on reporting the coverup on any of their evening TV news programs and chose to target Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for banning vaccine mandates by any entity in the state.
“SHAME. How can one call itself a news organization when it blacks out coverage of a story like this, which has such broad impact on the safety of our children and education? And they wonder why ratings and trust of the media continue to tank,” said Media Research Center President Brent Bozell.
In 2020, an anti-science gender policy secretly implemented by the superintendent of the City Schools of Decatur, Georgia, led to the sexual assault of a kindergarten girl in a bathroom “by a boy who was allowed to be there because of that policy.”
