I guess I'm a pedophile enabler to these nuts, and a racist homophobe to their equally insane counterparts on the left simply because I don't agree with either side's desire to tyrannize me. If you take the government out of education, these people can all fry in their own self-made hell and leave the rest of us alone.

In a word, this org is a super-fascist group of narrow-minded women who function from a monochromatic monolith. They are all about restraint, anti-intellectualism and free thought.

It seems like you mean well in this essay. However, I don't think it's helpful to oppose the far right with their own invented terminology. "Gender ideology," is both a bogeyman made up by TERFs & meaningless as a phrase. The "ideology" of recognizing people's gender identities is just politeness.

As things are with Western culture, teaching filth will happen anyway. It's oozing from every source of "entertainmen." But perhaps our schools should hesitate before joining this destructive process.

Which is the central message of this movement. But the Left has small reasons to worry: The road to perdition is slippery, and it is further greased by powers such as this Biden gang.

Birchers in threesomes, it turns out.

Nice piece. I would add that there's a bit more to the Mom's origin story. These are folks who already had several years of well-connected activism under their belts.

I still don't understand why groups like this still get called "conservative". What are they conserving?

As one of the memes floating through the web-o-sphere now indicates, historically, those who ban books never turn out to be the good guys. The response to these bigots is completely backwards and needs to be turned upside down. Instead of banning books, the librarians and teachers should allow those who do not want to read such filth can read an alternate and provide their book report on that. I'm sure the Dick & Jane series is white enough for them. Even though Spot may be enticing to some of the furverts who clearly make up a majority of the left, he is after all a pretty dull dog and should get through the so-called Moms sensors.

Incredible . How can we stop them?

It tickles me that the people writing the Privilege Walk are so incompetent that they put out this: β€œ 12. If you feel that people do not interpret your personal onions as a representation of your entire race, take one step forward.”

Either incompetent or nobody cares enough to read it.
