The Left Smears Moms & Dads

American moms and dads who are concerned about their children's education are under fire by a powerful well-funded leftist organization. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) just put major parental rights groups, including Moms for Liberty and Parents Defending Education, on its "hate map" of what it calls "anti-government extremists." The SPLC is lumping parents who don't want their children exposed to LGBTQ indoctrination to actual haters, including Nazis and the KKK.

The SPLC even gives "helpful" guidance on how to identify the "extremist" parents. The SPLC report warns that they often wear shirts with this phrase, "We do not co-parent with the government."

If the SPLC finds that idea "extreme," it tells you more about them than it does about the parents. The SPLC is on the side of those who want the government and the teachers' unions to decide what your children are taught about our most fundamental values.

This attack is outrageous, but, sadly, it isn't surprising. The SPLC has a long history of smearing conservative and Christian groups. They have attacked our friends at the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), who do outstanding work defending religious liberty. The SPLC has also smeared the Family Research Council, a group first conceived by Dr. James Dobson that I had the pleasure to lead for over a decade.

Unfortunately, the SPLC's smears have reaped a big payoff. Their public tax records show they have amassed assets of $703 million. In recent years, the SPLC's irresponsible reports have been used by the Justice Department, the FBI and the Defense Department to identify so-called "hate groups."

I think the attack on Moms for Liberty and other parental rights groups is evidence that we are winning! In school districts all over America, parents are rescuing their children from left-wing education officials and the powerful teachers' unions.

The left-wing indoctrination is being exposed! Now the Left is trying to use fear to shut parents up. Don't succumb to it!

We hope the parental rights groups will consider taking legal action against the SPLC. In addition, conservatives in Congress should conduct hearings to expose the SPLC's real agenda. JDFI will continue to rally parents to defend their children from malevolent ideologies in our schools.

Open Letter to President Joe Biden

Dear President Biden, We write to you with grave concern about the radical agenda your administration is imposing on the American people. When you ran in 2020, a major theme of your campaign was to bring America together. Instead, your actions have indisputably divided the country.

Defending Title IX

We have briefed you in the past about the horrible attempt by the Biden administration to gut Title IX. As a reminder, Title IX was passed by Congress in 1972 to prohibit sex discrimination in federally funded educational programs, including sports. When the law was passed, everyone understood what "sex" and "gender" meant. And for 50 years, Title IX has protected girls and young women.
