Democrats Try to Go After Moms

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.

Progressives love to label people they don’t like, makes it easier to “otherize” and round them up later, and progressives love to round people up. What they call people has little to no connection to reality, but being disconnected from reality is a feature of the left, not a bug. So, who are the latest “monsters” these left-wingers have decided to demonize? Moms.


Yes, you read that right, moms. The lady who made your PB&Js, who dressed you as a child, the woman who gave you life! Now moms are the problem in politics, according to the Democrat Party. 

How did moms top the list of problematic Americans? Simple: they cared about their kids.

To be more specific, they cared about what was happening in their kids’ schools, what they were being taught, and conversely, what they weren’t being taught. 

Moms noticed the left-wing indoctrination while “distance learning” during COVID. They were able to pay attention and heard an endless stream of anti-American lies and gender insanity with their own ears. They were also able to see the education of their children take a backseat to these and other left-wing concerns. Kids couldn’t read or do basic math, but they knew to dutifully obey whatever pronouns some classmate in need of therapy insisted was real on a daily basis. Moms were not amused.

The thing about moms is, provided they aren’t awful or junkies or named Biden, they care about all kids, but they really, really care about their own kids. Millions of moms caring about their own kids is an army; a political force that will not take “no” for an answer.

Moms mobilized over what the political left is doing to their kids is a force Democrats haven’t faced before. The suburban mom was their backbone, their saving grace. Suburban white women carried Democrats over finish line after finish line. But that was before they were caught messing with their kids. (Note I said “caught,” not started. Democrats have been indoctrinating kids for years, parents just didn’t see how bad it was for themselves until school via Zoom. That changed everything.) 


After they noticed, moms started showing up to school board meetings demanding to know what the hell was going on. Democrats lied. More insanity and denials of reality flowed from schools, Democrats lied about it. Finally, voters led by these mothers tossed out school board members across the country. That was a bridge too far for the left. 

Democrats do not care if you don’t like them, they don’t care if you oppose them, it’s when you strip them of power that they take the gloves off. The number of children hurt, the amount of lives damaged does not matter as long as they maintain their grip on power. Moms, particularly white suburban moms, turning on them is not acceptable. 

Enter the Southern Poverty Law Center and the media. 

The SPLC, in the way a parasite protects its host, declared moms who’d rather their kids learn how to read, write and do math than how to best get their genitals removed so as to avoid the social stigma of being the only “normal” kid in class, to be “extremists.”

The Associate Press, themselves very good lapdogs for Democrats, burped up a DNC press release using the SPLC as its backbone. “‘Mama bears’ may be the 2024 race’s soccer moms. But where the GOP seeks votes, some see extremism,” the piece was titled.

On what planet is that news? How does left-wing groups not liking parents paying attention to what they’re doing to kids a shock to anyone? Roaches run when you turn on the lights, Democrats freak out when you see them clearly. 


The AP wrote, “These conservative mothers and grandmothers, who in recent years have organized for ‘parental rights,’ including banning discussion of gender identity in schools, have been classified as extremists by the Southern Poverty Law Center.” 

In case you’re playing the home game, the score of number of people shot after being inspired to do so by either these mothers or the SPLC is 0-1. Yes, the SPLC has gotten more people shot than all these “extremist” mom groups combined. (The SPLC inspired a man to march into the Family Research Center determined to murder everyone there because they’d been declared a “hate group.” He shot a security guard who was ultimately able to stop him from following through on his mass murder plot.)

As always happens with Democrats, they drive whatever buzzword of the moment into the ground and strip it of all meaning. Everyone and everything is called “racist” so frequently that no one pays attention to it anymore. What they don’t call racist they call sexist, again to unimpressive results. Every Republican presidential candidate over the last 25 years has been called either “Nazi” or “worse than Hitler," or both.

Now “extremist” is their new scare word, only no one is scared. No one cares, at least no one with an IQ larger than their shoe size. Which means it’s the perfect motivator for the MSNBC/CNN crowd and will help Democrats keep their base in line. Thankfully, it doesn’t work on normal people anymore.
