And the Communist Democrats have the nerve to call the rest of us who don't think like them FASCISTS. When they are clearly the freaking FASCISTS. defines FASCISM as a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce. defines FASCISM as Fascism is a way of ruling that advocates total control of the people. Fascism comes from the Latin fascio, meaning “bundle, or political group.” In fascism, the people are looked at as a bundle — one body that must be controlled by the government with absolute force. There’s no option to vote, no chance to impeach a leader, and no freedom to stand up against the governing body.

A school board president in Arizona has been accused of maintaining a secret online dossier containing personal details about parents who opposed mask mandates and Critical Race Theory.

Scottsdale Unified School District Governing Board President Jann-Michael Greenburg's access to the Google Drive file was revealed after he accidentally displayed the link in a screenshot he sent to a parent in a heated email chain.

The drive contained files labeled 'SUSD Wackos' and 'Anti Mask Lunatics' among others in a sprawling database tracking the online activities of parents in the district.

The drive was set to public, allowing anyone with a link to view it, and the contents, including the Social Security numbers, financial information and divorce records of parents, quickly set off a firestorm of calls for Greenburg to resign, according to AZ Free News.

The drive contained files labeled 'SUSD Wackos' and 'Anti Mask Lunatics' among others in a sprawling database tracking the online activities of parents in the district.

The drive was set to public, allowing anyone with a link to view it, and the contents, including the Social Security numbers, financial information and divorce records of parents, quickly set off a firestorm of calls for Greenburg to resign, according to AZ Free News.

The district blames Greenburg's father Mark, who shares a home and computer with his son, for creating the bizarre dossier, and the school board president has denied involvement, vowing an investigation by 'forensic IT staff'.

A spokeswoman for SUSD did not immediately respond to an inquiry from on Thursday night.

The unusual affair is just one example of the increasing tensions between parents and school leadership across the country, with passions running high over a range of issues from curriculum and reopening to mask and vaccine mandates.

The existence of the Scottsdale dossier first came to light in August, when Jann-Michael Greenburg apparently sent a screenshot of a Facebook conversation to area resident Kim Stafford, accusing her of anti-Jewish sentiment.

Stafford dismissed the accusation in a reply, saying that Greenburg had read the conversation out of order and misinterpreted her post accusing someone else of anti-Islamic sentiment.

However, the mom noticed that at the top of the screenshot, a Google Drive address was visible, and when she entered the address into her browser, found that the cloud drive was publicly accessible.

The drive has since been set to private, but a copy of its contents has been reviewed by

The sprawling drive contains folders with names including 'SUSD Wackos,' 'Press Conference Psychos' and 'Anti Mask Lunatics.'

It contains a disorganized collection of hundreds of screenshots of Facebook posts and conversations in Facebook groups dedicated to the Scottsdale school system, with the apparent theme of tracking the political sentiments of various parents.

Some of the files include memes mocking certain parents, PTA leaders and local elected officials.

Disturbingly, the drive also contains a background report that appears to have been generated by a private investigator, which includes personal details such as financial and criminal records of parents.

Among the files are bodycam videos that appear to have been filmed by Mark Greenburg, the school board president's father, as he rides his motorcycle.

In one video, Mark Greenburg is heard confiding with friendly parents in the parking lot of a school, apparently before a school board meeting.

'Somewhere around here, we have a private investigator, who's writing down all their plates,' he can be heard saying.

'That you've hired?' asks one of the allied moms.

'Yeah, I did. Yeah. I had our law firm do it so that it's protected. So that we can get the information,' Mark Greenburg is heard saying.

Mark Greenburg was listed as the owner of the original Google Drive, which was also linked to Jann-Michael Greenburg, according to Independent Newsmedia.

In a phone interview with the outlet, Jann-Michael Greenburg furiously denied that he was behind the sprawling dossier.

'I categorically deny having anything to do with any of this. If you are going to claim in a story right now, that I had anything to do with this, I would argue that crosses the line,' Jann-Michael said, while his father was also on the call.

'We are going to have forensic IT staff look into this and figure out what that is. You can file with law enforcement, I am not sure even why we are looking at these photos.'

Asked if his father had access to the Google Drive, he replied: 'I am not my father's keeper.'

'I think that has been made clear previously,' he added, apparently referring to his father's creation of a parody website targeting a former SUSD board member.

'I have been sent screenshots on what is done on [a parent's Facebook group]. I have been sent videos, and, yes, from parents, including my own father,' he said. 'Yes, people send me emails and text messages, but I don't store them and I don't know who stores them if that is what you are asking.'

Jann-Michael Greenburg has filed to run for reelection in November 2022, but is already facing angry calls for his immediate resignation.

'I am calling for the immediate resignation of our board president Jann-Michael Greenburg,' Amy Carney, who is running for a seat on the Scottsdale Governing Board next year, told AZ Free News.

'We cannot allow anyone in a leadership position to secretly compile personal documents and information on moms and dads who have dared speak out publicly or on social media about their grievances with the district,' said the mother of six.

Police in Arizona have launched an investigation into Scottsdale Unified School District president Jann-Michael Greenburg after allegations surfaced that he kept a dossier of information on parents who oppose COVID restrictions and critical race theory.

What is the background?

News of the dossier broke last week after Greenburg reportedly shared it with a parent by accident.

The Arizona Republic reported:
A copy of the Google Drive that parents created was obtained by The Arizona Republic and it included screenshots of Facebook conversations parents had about their opposition to topics such as critical race theory and COVID-19 mask mandates. It also included emails sent to school board members calling for Greenburg's resignation, photos and videos of parents protesting the school district and screenshots of parents' Facebook profiles that indicated their support for former President Donald Trump.
Even more shocking, the dossier allegedly contained Social Security numbers, property records, and divorce decrees, among other personal information. Information had been collected on nearly 50 parents.

What happened now?

The Scottsdale Police Department released a statement saying the agency is "aware of the allegations against Scottsdale Unified School District President Jann-Michael Greenburg."

"We are conducting an investigation into the matter and will report our findings once it is complete," the statement added, the Associated Press reported.

The statement, however, did not specify any details about the investigation. It is not clear if Greenburg is accused of breaking crimes.

Scottsdale Unified School District superintendent Scott Menzel similarly announced on Friday an investigation into Greenburg and the dossier.

Menzel said in a letter:
Today, the Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) began the process of hiring an independent forensic investigator to determine if any school resources were used to compile, access or modify the private dossier allegedly created and maintained in Google drive folders by Mark Greenburg, the father of SUSD Board President Jann-Michael Greenburg, and shared by the latter. We want to determine if school resources were used inappropriately. We take our responsibility as good stewards of public funds very seriously.

It is important to emphasize the District did not create, maintain or have control over the dossier. The information it contains appears to be largely from public documents, and parents are rightly upset that certain data, photography and video has been collected and shared.
According to the Arizona Republic, more than 1,200 parents have signed a petition demanding Greenburg's resignation.
