That’s apparently what the Scottsdale school board thinks.
They’re coming for you next: Parents who have publicly objected to the mask mandate policies of a Scottsdale, Arizona school board have discovered that at least two members of the school board, Jann-Michael Greenburg and Zachary Lindsay, had compiled or had access to a Google drive folder containing personal information of the parents, including social security numbers, financial information, pictures of themselves and their children.
The information as complied clearly suggested the board members were going to use it to harass and harm the parents.
Parents have since dubbed the Google Drive an “online dossier.” The folders housed within the dossier are labeled “SUSD Wackos,” “Press Conference Psychos,” and “Anti Mask Lunatics,” among others. Included under “Press Conference Psychos” was a video that shows parents calmly holding signs that read “CRT is Racist” and “SUSD We Demand Transparency.”
The dossier takes specific aim at the concerned parent group “Community Advocacy Network” (CAN). Administrators and founders of CAN’s active Facebook page have folders dedicated to screenshots of their Facebook comments, pictures of them with their husbands, and in some cases financial records.
Much of the information was apparently gathered by Greenburg’s father, who is documented to have videotaped the parents repeatedly, sometimes hiding his identity. He also has a track record of harassment.
The elder Greenburg can be heard in bodycam footage reviewed by the Daily Caller calling Wray [one of the threatened parents] a “lunatic.” He also admitted that he pulled up to Wray’s car on his motorcycle with his license plate covered and said he had a private investigator “who’s writing down all of [the parents’ license] plates.”
Both Wray and [parent] Carney described the Greenburgs as “bullies” and “trolls,” who do little to quell the real concerns of parents. Carney said that if parents criticize the younger Greenburg, “the dad goes after them.”
The elder Greenburg has a history of harassing his political opponents. In 2019, he was unmasked as the anonymous author of a parody website that mocked school board leadership, according to a local Scottsdale news outlet.
The younger Greenburg denied any involvement with the Google drive, despite the fact that the drive had been discovered when he sent an email to one parent with an attached screenshot that showed he was using that very drive at that very moment.
Need I remind everyone that these are school board members? How insane have things become when school board members plan doxxing and harassment against the parents they are supposed to serve? Since when did such minor elected positions require dirty politics and the politics of personal destruction? Isn’t their job instead a very basic and non-partisan one, to organize and maintain the local schools so that children can learn reading, writing, and arithmetic?
Apparently not, at least not for these Scottsdale, Arizona board members. There, the board members view their jobs as positions of power and control, so important that they have the right to destroy anyone who dares criticize them. More important, these individuals apparently think they should have more control and power of the district’s children than their parents.
The sooner these individuals are removed from office, the better. Yesterday was too late.
