Jeff Porter, a school superintendent in suburban Maine, said his district has been "almost held hostage" by a national battle over critical race theory.

"I was very naïve at the beginning of the year," Porter said. "I thought it was a concerned parent who had taken it a little too far. I didn't understand this until recently, but these were tactics from national organizations to discredit the entire district."

McBreairty became Maine's chapter leader for No Left Turn last summer. He has since put up a billboard-size sign of a school board member's face on his lawn and said it was surrounded by rat traps to prevent theft. "This is a war with the left," McBreairty said in an email to NBC News, "and in war, tactics and strategy can become blurry." The fight has only escalated, and it shows no sign of slowing.
