Only Republicans could come up with a group whose mission is to destroy schools, target LGBTQ+ kids, and ruin teachers and librarians for sport and brand it with two words that couldn’t be further from the truth — “Mom’s for Liberty.”

“Moms for Liberty” gave women who lacked personal power and self-control something to do with their time — power and control over others.

Moms for Liberty is an American conservative political organization that advocates against school curricula that mention LGBT rights, race and ethnicity, critical race theory, and discrimination. Multiple chapters have also campaigned to ban books that address gender and sexuality from school libraries. Wiki

The power of the few to control the narrative of the masses is exemplified in the book bans spreading across the country.

  • 60% of books are banned in the US because of only 11 people.

According to an analysis by the Post, 60% of book challenges made in the 2021–2022 school year came from the same 11 adults. Petersen was one of them. The majority of objections were on books authored by or about LGBTQ+ people or people of color. Source.
