Time to put education back in the country's boards of education.
Horrific poster and horrific people.
If these "Moms for Liberty" had to live for a WEEK under real Fascism, they'd be begging for it to be ended in two days.
I haven't seen fascists lose like this since August 1945.
This story makes me disproportionately happy.
Good on ya, Muricans!
Please stop exporting these people up here tho. My moron provincial government has attempted to solve “problems” like people being forbidden from wearing Remembrance Day poppies (zero people), people being forbidden to commit crimes of pronouns (there is no support for this crap at all outside of hillbilly places) and people not flying “flag” at schools (which will cost every school like $5000 for a new flagpole because no you cannot jam 4 flags on one pole). The main people promoting this? If you said Moms of Liberty you win a perogie!
This bring me so much joy that these Christo-fascists almost ALMOST got away with fucking with public education. AND the worst part is that once they tore it all down, they would simply walk away and say let's home-stupid our kids like a Starbucks kicking the competition Mom and Pop and leaving the neighborhood. FUCK these shits and the dark money that backed them.
We kicked their ass and I hepped.
I was not a "church person" for a very long time. Then Mrs God passed away and I needed people.
Eventually I found the Circular Congregational Church in Charleston, see the note.
A MfL 5-4 majority has been messing around with Charleston County Schools leadership and policy. Charleston Area Justice Ministry, a 41-church consortium, has been raising the alarm. Unfortunately, we have to wait a year before voting again.
I voted for school board for the first time yesterday. I couldn't find much information on most of the candidates, so I'm not sure if any lunatics were on the ballot. Of the four candidates who had web pages, only 2 mentioned their involvement with DEI. One just seemed nutty and the other didn't put anything overtly crazy on their web page, but had a few things that seemed like possible coded language like treating students as individuals rather than members of a group. I don't necessarily disagree with the statement, but I worried that it might mean why can't everyone just act white. In the end, I could only cast 2 votes of the 4 I was allowed. Candidates should really make an effort to let people know what they stand for even in local elections.
Why do Democrats hate Moms and Liberty?
What's next. Are they opposed to Marking America Great Again?
Is this what happens if you go to drag shows, like a speech by Ron DeSantis?????
Ever since 2016 I've had my doubts about the electorate at every level: local, state and national. These school board elections have made me feel a little better about the chances for American democracy. Not a LOT, just a little -- but that's better than nothing!
My father, who a school district administrator, said that school boards were filled with people who had no idea how schools worked. Kind of like Republicans in any kind of government or oversight positions nowadays.
“One high school in the district tried to force a librarian to take down posters featuring a quote by Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel because it said “neutrality helps the oppressor,””
Won’t someone think of the oppressors??? Stop encouraging students to see, recognize and speak out against oppression! This is no way to suppress free expression!
That poster is wild. Note the single Star of David among the crosses in the background.
We need new derisive nicknames for republicans.
The crotch police.
Book burners anonymous
Wealth worshiping WASPS
The Far White
You get the picture, ridicule these pests incessantly and without mercy.
Ta, Dok. Keep the Moms for Oppression off school boards and out of libraries. Everyone wins when kids are educated and love reading.
