During a meeting of the Metropolitan Nashville Board of Public Education this week, a hot mic caught board members apparently pondering “can we just go set Marsha Blackburn on fire?” — the latest instance of public school boards saying the quiet part out loud and revealing their partisan hostility against conservatives and Republicans.
Video from the meeting posted on March 23rd by the district, captures the moment starting around the 1:02 mark after the school board tried to bring its meeting to order but, still lacking a quorum, called for a short break during which a copy of the meeting agenda appears on screen but voices can still be heard, picked up by the mics on the dais.
“Have you been watching these Supreme Court…,” says an unidentified voice.
“Let me tell y’all,” says another.
“She is something else,” says one, apparently speaking of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
“Let me tell y’all,” repeats one.
“I love her,” gushes another about Biden’s SCOTUS nominee.
“Can we just go set Marsha Blackburn on fire?” says one, taking the conversation in a dark direction.
This week, Senator Blackburn has been among Judiciary Committee Republicans leading lines of questioning of President Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. Senator Blackburn’s questions Judge Jackson’s inability to define what a “woman” is and dug into the nominee’s apparent embrace of the radical left’s gender politics.
