Angry parents forced members of a left-wing, pro-authoritarian school board to sit and listen to a Bosnian immigrant who was warning of government tyranny on Monday.

Leftist members of the Collinsville School Board were furious that the Bosnian man began speaking during his time for the public comments segment of the meeting. And they made to shut him down and force him to shut up. But many of the parents in the audience were angry at the board members for trying to shut the man down.

Once parents began shouting down the leftist board members’ attempt to end the man’s comments, two of the members rose up, began gathering their things, and made to leave the meeting in protest.

Parents weren’t having that, either, and their complaints rose to a fever pitch forcing the pro-despot board members to sit down and listen as the man finished his comments.

The incident came as parents had gathered at the meeting to confront the board for continuing its draconian mask policy.

The story comes from KMOV4 News in Collinsville, just over the river from St. Louis.

Thirty minutes into the meeting, where public comment was on the agenda, board members tried to go into closed session. Two board members even tried walking out of the meeting until the board president told them to sit down. After parents realized the board was trying to go into a closed session, they argued back and forth for several minutes, some even yelling.

“This gentleman immigrated from Bosnia under threat of genocide when he was in 5th grade. The CUSD unit 10 school board attempted to gavel out the meeting while he was speaking,” Daily Wire reporter Virginia Kruta said.

Daily Caller added:

The father recalled his horrifying experience in Bosnia, warning that the crackdown on his people “started with simple things, like taking away your right to speak and to say the things that you want to say.”

“It was the simple small things, because you couldn’t walk down the street and tell your neighbor how you really felt, because your neighbor might rat out on you,” he said. “And that’s where we’re at right now, we’re staring to see that.”

“Secondly, they forced every one of us to register our guns,” he continued. “I was very young, but I have vivid memories of the Serbs coming in and beating my parents, beating my mother, doing many other things to many other women.”

“So, I came over here and started out in 5th grade,” the dad said. “I was always the person to stand up for my principles, so I’m starting to teach my child to do the same thing.”

The man continued to the applause of the parents in the room:

“There is no land of opportunity like there is here, and I’m just one person to say that. And you know, there are 60,000 of us in St. Louis, that are here for a reason, not because we want to live the way we lived in the 90s [in Bosnia], in fear of what’s next,” he said. “This is becoming way too political and way too tyrannical. There’s absolutely no reason for this. None.”

“I have to say one more thing, and it’s simple: We all want to be civil, and we all want to do this the right way, but I’m telling you, if you do not stop complying, you will lose everything that you have,” the father warned, met with applause from parents.

“Stop complying,” he said through a standing ovation. “Stop complying.”

The Collinsville school board intends to dismiss all concerns parents have and will continue their unscientific and useless making of kids.
