Sherronna Bishop is a mother of three from Grand Junction, Colorado who has been active in protesting against her “woke” local school board and protecting election integrity. She runs the website AmericasMom.net, which features an article and video titled “We the Parents: How Did We Get Here?”
On Tuesday morning, Bishop was home with her family preparing to homeschool her children when she heard a knock on the door, and she was stunned to open it to see FBI officials preparing to raid her house. Bishop claims that the agents “manhandled” her 18-year-old daughter, pulling her upstairs by her hoodie while she was handcuffed by another officer. They proceeded to search her house despite the fact that Bishop says that she is not guilty of anything other than exercising her First Amendment rights.
“This is still the United States of America, where we are able to state what we think and we believe,” she claimed in an interview with Mike Lindell TV the day after the raid. “There was some pounding on my door. I didn’t really know what to think, I thought at first it might be some neighbor kids. They were pounding profusely, and then it hit me it was the FBI. I took my kids to their bedrooms. They used a battering ram to bash down my door, they cuffed me. And then proceeded to search and go through my whole home.”
During the raid, Bishop claims that the FBI agents refused to tell her why it was happening. Afterward, they left behind papers relating to their search warrant saying that they entered her home because she was suspected of causing “intentional damage to a protected computer, wire fraud and conspiracy to cause damage to a protected computer.”
“I don’t know anything about this. They couldn’t explain any of this,” she said. “I will tell you why: they were at my home to intimidate me, to shut me up, because I was using my First Amendment rights to advocate for [Mesa County Clerk] Tina Peters on the issue of Dominion [voting machines] and the damage done in our election. And they’ll never be held accountable. Instead, they will criminalize this woman who has stood up.”
Despite the raid, Bishop is defiantly saying that she will not stop her activism.
“I know people will say, ‘well Sherronna, why don’t you just shut your mouth’… That’s exactly what they hope you will do. I can open my mouth and say whatever I want to say and that is not a criminal action,” she said. “This is about their desire to shut you down and stop you from saying it. I’m a law-abiding citizen, I’m very supportive of law enforcement. I love the Constitution. And what happened yesterday, what happened is something I never imagined I would experience in America.”
Perhaps Bishop was seen as a threat by the government because she has successfully fought the teaching of critical race theory and school mask mandates. The Joe Biden administration doesn’t take kindly to this kind of thing, as they have accused parents like her of being “domestic terrorists.”
“Colorado was able to flip nine school boards this year. We were able to get one of our leftists to resign and we also flipped our school board in the election,” Bishop said. “And people like me are considered domestic terrorists now because we don’t stand for the policies that have been forced upon our children.”
Brannon Howse, who was interviewing Bishop, believes that history will be kind to her.
“I believe you will go down in history as the first mom targeted [by the FBI],” he said. “The FBI has said it plans to do this and I believe you are the first mom to have this done to you. Mask mandates, opposing critical race theory, election theft, which Biden said if you question that you are involved in subversion. But I believe you are the first mom to have been targeted and had your door literally busted down while you were homeschooling your kids.”
Bishop wants other parents like her to stay strong too, concluding the interview by saying, “We’ve got to stick together and we can’t let these thugs put us into fear and intimidation.”
