We reported yesterday that two arrests made at the Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting after it was declared an unlawful assembly and some parents here to protest against critical race theory (CRT).
At a congressional hearing today U.S. House Rep Bob Good (R-VA) defended the parents, decrying their arrests and the action taken by the school board.
Tweeting a video of his speech, Good said, “This week, parents in Loudoun County had the police called to arrest them for speaking out against Critical Race Theory.”
“Today in a congressional hearing I was called ‘RACIST’ for defending Virginia’s parents,” Good explained.
Good declared, “We must stand strong against Critical Race Theory!”

In the video, a man can be heard yelling “RACIST,” as Good said, and Don Norcross’ name can be seen flashing across the screen.
Donald Norcross is a Democratic Congressman from New Jersey, who has represented his district since 2014.
U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) retweeted Good’s tweet, bringing further attention to the video.
“You can just see this past week in Virginia’s Loudoun County, one of the largest counties in Virginia, the Board of Education there, rather than face parental criticism, they shut down public comment, they adjourned the meeting, and they actually called in the police to arrest parents who had gathered to express their grievances with government and local officials,” Good said in the video, with Norcoss interjecting towards the end by calling him “racist.”
Good concluded in the video, “I hope that you will not nationalize the culture war that started in Virginia and bankrupt critical race theory with hard earned taxpayer dollars.”
