A concerned group of parents notified local media and the police this week after a father promoting Critical Race Theory told a school board in Fort Worth, Texas he has 1,000 soldiers “locked and loaded” to defend the controversial ideology.
“Absolutely, it made me feel threatened,” Hollie Plemmons, a stay-at-home mother of three, told Fox News on Sunday. “I’m scared and I’m afraid he’s going to do something.”
“For those who got an issue with this critical race theory equity, this is something I fight for, for my children,” the father said at the meeting. “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.”

“We are not our ancestors,” he added. “I got over 1,000 soldiers ready to go.”
“Everyone there felt threatened,” said one grandmother. “I did feel threatened when watching the 11/9/21 video. … 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.”
