The Southern Poverty Law Center is claiming that Moms for Liberty is an “anti-government extremist group.”
Moms for Liberty’s website indicates that the organization’s mission is to battle for the nation’s survival by helping parents protect their rights.
But the SPLC has claimed that “Moms for Liberty activities make it clear that the group’s primary goals are to fuel right-wing hysteria and to make the world a less comfortable or safe place for certain students – primarily those who are Black, LGBTQ or who come from LGBTQ families.”
Moms for Liberty co-founders Tiffany Justice and Tina Descovich told the Daily Signal that their “organization is devoted to empowering parents to be a part of their child’s public school education.”
“That is our fundamental goal, which began just two years ago when teacher’s unions locked students out of schools during the pandemic,” they noted, according to the outlet. “Empowering parents continues to be our mission today and that has fueled our organization’s growth – like wildfire to now 45 states in the country.”
“Name-calling parents who want to be a part of their child’s education as ‘hate groups’ or ‘bigoted’ just further exposes what this battle is all about: Who fundamentally gets to decide what is taught to our kids in school – parents or government employees? We believe that parental rights do not stop at the classroom door and no amount of hate from groups like this is going to stop that,” they declared, according to the outlet.
Moms for Liberty’s upcoming summit will feature several GOP presidential primary contenders, including, former President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, and entrepreneur and author Vivek Ramaswamy.
