Mother-of-three Alisha Brand said her critics threatened to ‘curb stomp’ and ‘murder’ her because her group Army of Parents is fighting for ‘excellence in education, school safety, and parental rights.’
‘They targeted me in a Facebook Group [Loudoun Love Warriors], and they said that they wanted to curb stomp me,’ she told Fox and Friends on Friday.
Curb stomping is ‘grabbing somebody by the back of the head, forcing their mouth open, pushing them down to the ground with their face on the cement, their mouth around the curb, and then somebody else stomping on the back of their head,’ according to Brand.
‘This is murder, it’s a felony, and this is what I was threatened with by these activists who are tied to our political candidates,’ the mother said. ‘These are real threats. These are threats of death.’

Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj said in a statement for the school district: ‘Violent threats are never acceptable and at times can be criminal. I personally condemn all violent language and my office will be investigating whether a crime was committed. Due to the possibility of a criminal investigation, I can not comment further at this time.’
The Loudoun Love Warriors, which appears to have been taken down, reportedly had association with Biberaj, County Supervisor Juli Briskman, School Board Chair Ian Serotkin, school board member Brenda Sheridan, school board member Atoosa Reaser, school board member Erika Ogedegbe, school board candidate Anne Donohue, sheriff candidate Craig Buckley, and Chair Phyllis Randall.
None of them have been accused of making the threats.
The threats came after a group of parents spoke out at a recent school board meeting. They threatened to find the parent’s employer and get them fired, one parent said critics even ‘referred me to the FBI, IRS, and DHS all because they don’t like my opinion,’ according to WJLA-TV.
‘They’re probably going to sit back and celebrate the fact that I’m unemployed. I’m having a hard time finding a job. And who knows what’s next with the IRS and the FBI? I don’t know. But they’ve done more than just put me out of a job. It’s impacting my family, my kids,’ Loudoun parent Scott Mineo told the outlet.
Parents who spoke up at the Loudoun school board meeting have been targeted in attacks on a Facebook group Loudoun Love Warriors, which appears to have been deleted
The group reportedly had ties to several officials and school board members
Mark Winn was attacked after saying at a December 2022meeting that ‘[LGBT] behaviors should never have been promoted, taught, or encouraged in the schools that you oversee.’
He received messages in the Facebook group, such as: ‘Let’s make him unemployable by love or by force’ and ‘Wish I had footage of every person who clapped for him and give them the same ousting that Winn is about to,’ according to WJLA-TV.
‘It shocked me,’ Winn said.
Lieutenant Governor Winsome Earle-Sears said the group was ‘nothing but hate.’
‘From what I’m understanding, if the reports are true, and I don’t react to it as lieutenant governor, I react to it as a normal, sane human being, when you hear what this group is trying to do, they’re trying to destroy lives,’ she told WJLA-TV. ‘They’re going to make sure you definitely have loss of employment, you will possibly lose your life because they’re talking about [disassemble] you, and they’re also possibly going to shoot you.

‘Now remember, this is the kind of group that says they’re against guns, except I guess when they’re the ones with the guns. So, folks, we’ve got to get a grip. We’re destroying America from the inside. This is what our enemies do to us. This is not we what we do to ourselves.’
Brand not only wants an apology from the parents but has gone as far as seeking help from Ohio Republican Representative Jim Jordan, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, hoping he and his team will investigate the threats.
She also wants the House Judiciary Committee to enact legislation that will protect parents who speak out in public forums.
‘This is a First Amendment right,’ she told Fox and Friends.
