Parents in a Texas school district say an activist for Critical Race Theory threatened them at a recent school-board meeting when he warned them, “I got over 1,000 soldiers ready to go.”
“Locked and loaded.”
Fox News reported the situation developed at a recent meeting of the Fort Worth Independent School District board meeting, after which parent Hollie Plemmons said, “Absolutely, it made me feel threatened. I’m scared and I’m afraid he’s going to do something.”

Threats against parents, especially those who object to extremist curriculum components like CRT, which openly teaches that white people all are racist, have been getting more and more common, especially after the recent actions of the Joe Biden administration.
His attorney general, Merrick Garland, essentially sicced the FBI on those parents, telling his department’s employees to target them.
That move came after the National School Boards Association asked Biden to think of parents dissenting from the leftist agenda as domestic terrorists, a letter for which the NSBA later apologized.
Fox News reported the recent incident developed just days ago at the board meeting, when Malikk Austin used some of his time to talk to the school board to turn and address parents in the room.
“For those who got an issue with this critical race theory equity, this is something I fight for, for my children,” Austin said. “How dare you come out here and talk about the things that my daddy and my grandparents went through, the lynching, the oppression, Jim Crow, and my kids are still being afflicted by this.”
He continued, “I got over 1,000 soldiers ready to go.”
Plemmons offered to have a discussion with Austin, but he lashed out at her, “But you’re not intelligent, you are not intelligent.”
His comments being about 34:30:
As Austin was escorted out of the room, he shouted, “I’ll bring my soldiers with me next time… locked and loaded.”
Plemmons asked, “Did you just threaten me?”
He repeated, “Locked and loaded.”
“I felt it was completely inappropriate that the board did not stop that,” she said, in the Fox report.
“Everyone there felt threatened,” Carol Guarneri, a grandmother of four in the district.
Austin claimed to Fox News that he was not threatening anyone.
“First Amendment rights, freedom of speech, need to be implemented,” Austin said.
Missie Carra, of Parents’ Rights in Education, said she felt threatened when watching the video, even though she was not in person at the November 9 meeting.
“I did feel threatened when watching the 11/9/21 video,” she told Fox News. “Let’s be honest, in my opinion, when anyone turns toward an audience of mothers and yells ‘I have 1,000 people’ & ‘we’re locked and loaded’ it is difficult to misconstrue the intent of those words as anything else but a threat.”
