We’re At The Point In The 2024 Campaign That “Mama Bears” Are Now Extremists

This is a fantastic way to earn their votes, Democrats. Slurring them totally won’t make them vote Republican, right?

‘Mama bears’ may be the 2024 race’s soccer moms. But where the GOP seeks votes, some see extremism

In many election cycles, there’s a snappy shorthand used to describe the type of voters who may help decide the winner. Think soccer moms or security moms. Even NASCAR dads.

And now, the “mama bears.”

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. They have also been among the most coveted voters so far in the 2024 Republican presidential primary. (snip)

These so-called mama bears whom DeSantis and other Republicans are courting are conservative women living across the United States. They are largely white and may belong to official groups such as Moms for Liberty, which says it has 120,000 members nationally, or smaller ones like No Left Turn in Education. Some belong to no group at all.

See? They’re all racists. Except, the Moms For Liberty is comprised of whites, blacks, Asians, and Hispanics, among others. And they aren’t just Republicans, they are Independents and squishy Democrats. Even your average Democrat, the ones who aren’t the crazies, do not like what is being foist on their children.

Geralyn Jones, 31, of Marion, Iowa, said she was not active in politics until the pandemic, when she grew concerned about mask requirements and online schooling for her son, who was in kindergarten. She started asking questions and did not like the answers she was getting.

Jones pulled her two kids out of public school after the district approved a policy that allows transgender students to use the bathroom or locker room of the gender they identify as, without alerting parents,. She now leads the Linn County chapter of Moms for Liberty and said that seeing other moms get involved in politics is empowering.

And that’s extremist how, exactly? Not wanting her daughters having to being in bathrooms and locker rooms with biological boys with mental illness is extremist? Wanting the school to keep her, the parent, informed and involved?

Opponents say the warm-fuzzy image of a mama bear is a way to mask a cruel, extreme agenda that hurts children.

“Republicans have decided that this is, I think, their golden ticket for the primaries to rile up their base,” said Katie Paris, who runs Red, Wine and Blue, a network of women pushing back on GOP-backed policies such as the anti-LGBTQ and anti-trans efforts of Moms for Liberty.

“Call it ‘parents’ rights,’ call it ‘mama bears,’ and try to make it sound like something that would be common sense. … The reality about ‘parents’ rights’ is that it’s just about the rights of a vocal minority that is trying to carry out an extreme political agenda.”

Yeah, you keep going there, denigrating parents and see where that gets you. Funny thing is, a lot of these bat guano insane women pushing this do not even have kids.

  1. Dana says:

    It’s simply natural that parents want to protect their children; that’s hardwired into human beings, as it is with most mammals and even birds, something necessary for the propagation of the species.

    But, in their insane desire to support the abnormality of homosexuality and transgenderism — two things which work against the propagation of the species — today’s left want to not just normalize those two things, but make them more acceptable and supported. The left don’t see it as ‘grooming’ to take away the stigma of taking a walk on the wild side as harmful to children, but, shockingly enough, parents do. The last thing that parents want is to make life more difficult for their children, and homosexuality and transgenderism both would.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Mr Dana’s comments makes one wonder why the evolutionary process “tolerated” activities “which work against the propagation of the species”, a species whose numbers continue to increase! LGBTQ humans are a decided minority which Mr Dana “cleverly” labels “abnormal”. This makes blue eyes, red hair, left-handedness and native Americans abnormal!

      And yes, one can hide their blue eyes with contacts, dye their hair, force themselves into right-handedness or hide your native American heritage so that Mr Dana will accept you as normal. LGBTQ humans can suppress their true selves so as not to offend the likes of Mr Dana, who is so adamant in his cause that he favors policy to suppress their innateness.

      Of course, the libertarian cult’s singular favorable characteristic is their discomfort oppressing free people for being “abnormal” – so to avoid the psychological pain from this obvious hypocrisy, they expanded the meaning of “grooming*” to include LGBTQ human’s public existence! It’s about protecting the “chidren”! By not slurring, oppressing, mocking and ridiculing LGBTQ individuals we’re “grooming” children.

      Gays and lesbians have existed for as long as humanity has, even under centuries of oppression, torture and murder. It may be that being gay or lesbian isn’t as much a choice as conservatives claim.

      What makes life difficult for LGBTQ people IS the lack of acceptance and support which devolves into hatred, mockery and often violence.

      * grooming: activities practiced by Catholic priests, ministers, camp counselors, teachers, day care workers, parents, uncles, family friends where predatory adults befriend children with the objective of sexually assaulting them.

      • CarolAnn says:

        Grooming in the context here to which Dana is referring includes all those smartest people you mentioned but it includes everybody it was a predatory adult befriending children with the objective and sexually assaulting them and that sexual assault can be in the form of mental assault and emotional assault. You don’t have to be driving them windowless van with free candy on the side in order to be a child predator you can be a teacher or a preacher or anything in between. If you seem to believe that the rights of perpetrators of this horrible infliction on children are greater then the rights of the parents of the children you are sadly mistaken.

        You seem to think the welfare of the perverts should come first we believe the welfare of the children should and there’s nothing you can say that will convince us that perverts grooming children benefit the children and not the perverts.

        You should have never left that Baptist Church you even dog. Apparently since then you have always been on the morally wrong side of every question. On economics you side with communists and fascists and on social policy you side with faggots and transvestites rapists and murderers. You are basically a morally corrupt individual if you were a dog you would walk around licking your ass all day.

        You would better hope the moslims don’t take over in your neighborhood cause they’re not as forgiving as we Christians are. They won’t call you names they will throw you off a building.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:


          You may be the most angry and hateful person I’ve ever dealt with. Insecure much?

          We have a Muslim family 3 houses down. Lovely people! We have a new Mosque 2 miles up the road.

          No problems yet. Why bring up Muslims?

          We agree that grooming is what priests, preachers, teachers, family friends, camp counselors do to gain the trust of children for the purpose of sexually exploiting them. Follow-up studies clearly show this abuse by trusted individuals results in lifelong problems for the victims, including but not limited to, becoming abusers themselves, drug use and suicide.

          Drag queen story hour is not grooming.

          Do you realize that the majority pedophiles identify as heterosexual? Pedophilia is the sexual attraction to young children (sexually immature) whether male of female.

          Men such as Donald J Trump, exclusively attracted to sexually maturing girls, are not technically pedophiles but are hebephiles (~ 11 to 14) or ephebophiles (~15 to 19). Pedophiles are interested in asexual children.

          We understand that conservatives and fundamentalists view LGBTQ+ individuals as sick, abnormal, amoral, non-christian and want to oppress them by any means necessary. But any reasons given — e.g. “It’s for the “chidren”! — other than those, are excuses.

          It’s all part of the right-wing concern that caucasian, conservative, christian, straight, male-dominated America is being replaced by weaker, sicker, abnormal, lazier, darker, amoral types. You are terrified at the thought, and terrified citizens are dangerous citizens – as reflected in your increased talk of violent MAGAt rebellion! Democracy has its limits and now is it!!

      • James Lewis says:

        Dear Elwood:

        “Mr Dana’s comments makes one wonder why the evolutionary process “tolerated” activities “which work against the propagation of the species”,…..

        You have heard of “mistakes” haven’t you? Of course that assumes homosexuality is a physical change. But that has not been proven.

        “LGBTQ humans can suppress their true selves so as not to offend the likes of Mr Dana,…”

        If their true selves doesn’t include a right to groom and harm children they will, as has been in the past, largely ignored.

        ” By not slurring, oppressing, mocking and ridiculing LGBTQ individuals we’re “grooming” children.”

        What is the purpose of these individuals wanting to “perform” in front of children? The only answer is they want to expand the “group” by recruiting.

        Lack of acceptance and support does not devolve into hatred. Acceptance would be ignoring what they are unless they demand to do something outside “normal.” I.E. Demanding to be in dressing rooms of their non biological sex. Competing sports in which their biological sex gives them a huge advantage, thus destroying the sport for majority of the people they claim to be.

        And what is this “support?” Do you have the right to be supported when you go outside the lines?

        I think not.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          So you label LGBTQ+ individuals as “mistakes”. Got it. Fags, trannies, mistakes, abnormals etc.

          Human societies have tended to oppress people who are “different” – different color, sex, religion, sexuality, country of origin, handedness, disabilities, … A homogeneous group is likely more secure. Over the many centuries of social evolution humans have become more accepting of and more solicitous of “the others”, with transgenders being the latest.

          Conservatives gotta conserve, meaning they always have a knee-jerk objection to any changes in societal acceptance.

          By “mistakes” are you suggesting genetic mistakes, i.e., mutations? Blue eyes, red hair, handedness etc are inherited, as are tendencies to certain cancers, rare forms of ALS, dwarfism, pigmentation… Should the US discriminate against all of these “mistakes”?

          Most pedophiles are heterosexuals. The problem is pedophilia – not LGBTQ+. We need to do a MUCH better job of policing our priests, preachers, nuns, teachers, counselors, police, family “friends” etc.

          Children’s entertainers dress up all the time. Pirates, cowboys, bears, sharks, soldiers, dinosaurs, Mickey and Minnie, princesses, Spiderman, clowns etc. But the only reason a man would dress as a woman is to groom kids? Sorry, but you’re wrong. It’s just part of the anti-LGBTQ+ agenda.

          That perverted heterosexual Epstein, his girlfriend Maxwell and hangers on (heterosexuals Trump?, Clinton? Prince Andrew) got away with grooming and raping young teens for decades.

          As I’ve said many times, transitioned males usually have advantages not reversed by testosterone deprivation and estrogen supplements. A 7’1″ high school center doesn’t get shorter when he transitions and has an unfair advantage in women’s college b-ball.

            He’s a God damned Buttplug he is!

      • Dana says:

        Mr Dowd attempts a reductio ad absurdum, but falls flat on his face:

        This makes blue eyes, red hair, left-handedness and native Americans abnormal!

        As Mr Dowd certainly knows, blue eyes, which are frequent only among populations of European descent, are frequently seen as a sign of beauty, not abnormality, and the frequency of blue eyes among that population is, while a minority, nevertheless a substantial minority. Red hair is less common, about 2%, but while redheads used to get some discrimination, they are, at least among women, considered beautiful. Advertisers have been using redheads in percentages greatly exceeding their percentage of the population. Southpaws constitute roughly 10% of the population, a large enough minority that no one thinks they are somehow abnormal, and it seems probable to me that lefties were the creators of several written languages, including Hebrew, Arabic, and Chinese.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Mr Dana is wrong. Redheads, the blue eyed, and lefties are abnormal. It’s his definition. Just because society now accepts them doesn’t make them normal. Or does it?

          Would he agree that other than the odious right-wing and their brothers, fundamentalist Islam, LGBTQ folks are more accepted now than 100, 50, 20 and 10 years ago.

          His hatred and lack of human decency is noted, but his attitude is more rare than ever, abnormally so.

    Yes please more extremists in the GOP primaries. The only hope that Desantis has now rests in Trump being labeled “soft on abortion/murder”
    Women in general vote heavily left.
    Even more so when they are young (like the ones in the pics Teach posts)

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Moms for Liberty is a Republican group through and through. They object loudly to any mention of LGBTQ+ or race in schools and work to ban books in school libraries. Free speech for me but not for you!

    The Florida State Board of Education has decreed that Florida public schools also teach the benefits* that slavery afforded enslaved Blacks rather than just describing that slavery was “bad”. Florida Republicans realize they must indoctrinate children to be close-minded at an early age.

    Gov DEsantis used the example of an enslaved Black man who learned blacksmithing skills and once freed, made a living as the village smithy. Rumor is that the DEsantis camp is assessing whether to demand reparations from descendants of enslaved Americans.

    * This is called the “Other than that, Mrs Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?”, sometimes called the “Hitler liked dogs”, argument.

    • Dana says:

      Mr Dowd once again missed the pointL

      Moms for Liberty is a Republican group through and through. They object loudly to any mention of LGBTQ+ or race in schools and work to ban books in school libraries. Free speech for me but not for you!

      Given the Democrats all-in acceptance and glorification of homosexuality and transgenderism, there really is no place else for the Moms to go!

      However, in attempting to ban the teaching of homosexuality and transgenderism in the public schools, they are noting that, due to compulsory education laws, the public schools have a captive audience, mandated by the state.

      Outside of the public schools? Even Mr Dowd noted that their efforts to ban such material are limited to the public schools; they don’t want their children indoctrinated into harmful beliefs.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Mr Dana once again misses the point.

        Mr Teach typed: Moms For Liberty is comprised of whites, blacks, Asians, and Hispanics, among others. And they aren’t just Republicans, they are Independents and squishy Democrats.

        Mr Dana points out the error of Mr Teach’s typings.

        Are there any lesbians in Moms for Liberty?

  4. CarolAnn says:

    Keeping pornography and sexual grooming books from children is not banning books. It’s banning propaganda and porno. Don’t you think inappropriate books should be banned from children? Haven’t you left this band things by Mark Twain? How about the holy Bible?

    You left this even censored the Internet for anything conservative or anything about COVID during an election year talk about censorship. You even managed to get the president of the United states taken off of social media. You’re a hypocrite as usual. To protect children no books can be banned but to win an election everything you don’t agree with can be banned.

    You don’t like the ability of Florida schools to look at both sides of the slavery question. You feel that allowing people to know that some of the slaves came away with skills that they would not have had is not a good thing. It shows that slavery wasn’t 100% bad. But it doesn’t. Slavery was 100% bad that doesn’t mean that there weren’t some residual benefits from it. Your narrow mindedness as usual precludes your ability to use common sense moron.

    The only people who want to indoctrinate children to be closed minded at an early age are those who wanna teach only one side of every question and that would be you and your communist Marxist friends. There is absolutely no good reason for pederasty and porno and the actual functions of homosexual sex to be taught to minors. If you think they’re is then you’re as much of a pervert as Admiral Richard.

    Your white guilt from living a life of white privilege shows every time you make a comment here you’re so ashamed of being a rich white person living in a prosperous country you just can’t help but degrade everything about America. And Christianity is number one on your list.

    If you wanna talk about being close minded think about how close minded you are about COVID and climate change. Regardless of how many times you’ve been shown to be wrong you still stick with the doctor it’s your religion you’ve replaced God with fake science. I don’t know if it’s a psychological problem with you or if you were taught this way by your red diaper parents.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      I read Huckleberry Finn as a child, and to this day it’s amongst the best I’ve read. I hope you read it with an open mind.

      Huck’s Mississippi River travel buddy, the escaped enslaved “nigger” Jim, had been re-captured and sold back to slavers. Huck had penned a letter to Jim’s original owner, Miss Watson, telling her where Jim was.

      Huck’s internal dialogue debating doing the right thing (turning Jim in) vs the wrong thing (freeing Jim):

      And I about made up my mind to pray, and see if I couldn’t try to quit being the kind of a boy I was and be better. So I kneeled down. But the words wouldn’t come. Why wouldn’t they? It warn’t no use to try and hide it from Him. Nor from ME, neither. I knowed very well why they wouldn’t come. It was because my heart warn’t right; it was because I warn’t square; it was because I was playing double. I was letting ON to give up sin, but away inside of me I was holding on to the biggest one of all. I was trying to make my mouth SAY I would do the right thing and the clean thing, and go and write to that nigger’s owner and tell where he was; but deep down in me I knowed it was a lie, and He knowed it. You can’t pray a lie — I found that out.

      So I was full of trouble, full as I could be; and didn’t know what to do. At last I had an idea; and I says, I’ll go and write the letter — and then see if I can pray. Why, it was astonishing, the way I felt as light as a feather right straight off, and my troubles all gone. So I got a piece of paper and a pencil, all glad and excited, and set down and wrote:

      Miss Watson, your runaway nigger Jim is down here two mile below Pikesville, and Mr. Phelps has got him and he will give him up for the reward if you send. HUCK FINN

      And got to thinking over our trip down the river; and I see Jim before me all the time: in the day and in the night-time, sometimes moonlight, sometimes storms, and we a-floating along, talking and singing and laughing. But somehow I couldn’t seem to strike no places to harden me against him, but only the other kind. I’d see him standing my watch on top of his’n, ‘stead of calling me, so I could go on sleeping… (Jim) said I was the best friend old Jim ever had in the world, and the ONLY one he’s got now; and then I happened to look around and see that paper.

      It was a close place. I took . . . up [the letter I’d written to Miss Watson], and held it in my hand. I was a-trembling, because I’d got to decide, forever, betwixt two things, and I knowed it. I studied a minute, sort of holding my breath, and then says to myself: “All right then, I’ll go to hell” — and tore it up. It was awful thoughts and awful words, but they was said. And I let them stay said; and never thought no more about reforming.

      Huck, based on his friendship with Jim traveling down the Mississippi, decided to help Jim escape slavery – condemning himself to hell for doing the wrong thing – saving his friend, Jim, who was another person’s property!!

    Dear, dear Elwood:

    You do love to try and misunderstand. Or maybe you are just as dumb as you appear.

    “So you label LGBTQ+ individuals as “mistakes”. Got it. Fags, trannies, mistakes, abnormals etc.”

    Yes, these are genetic “mistakes.” “an action or decision that is wrong or produces a result that is not correct or not intended:”

    Or do you claim that people have children that they desire to be homosexual or trans or both???

    BTW – Quit lying by claiming that I call people fags, etc. etc.

    “Human societies have tended to oppress people who are “different..”

    True. But here in the west we also do not approve of throwing Gays off roofs, hanging them, etc. What we disapprove of is grooming children, etc. The issue is that we don’t approve of government telling us what pronouns to use and trans grooming children.

    “Most pedophiles are heterosexuals. The problem is pedophilia…” Men who want/have sex with male children are homosexual pedophiles. I know of no basis for the “most” claim.

    “Children’s entertainers dress up all the time..”

    But they don’t act out sexually through motions, words, etc. Quit making excuses.

    Leaving aside your unproven slur on Trump, two wrongs don’t make a right. Quit making excuses.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      So, LGBTQ+ individuals DIDN’T make a choice to be LGBTQ+ any more than a Black guy chose to be Black?

      Then how in the hell does recruiting fags and trannies work?? Do the Drag Queens change the genetic structure of the kids?

      Can a Drag Queen make a transgender person from a person who doesn’t possess the genetic “mistakes”.

      Sex shows for kids? Really? A man dressed like a diva is not a sex show.

      Quit making excuses. Quit moving the goalposts.

      You don’t like LGBTQ people, and you’d like banning them in public.

        Pay attention. I posited that there has been no proven genetic connection.

        The question is, why does a grown man/woman want to perform sexually in front of children unless they expect to get something in return?

        But actually we should not conflate homosexuals and trans. They are not the same.

    Mr James,

    Pay attention.

    James typed: Yes, these (gays) are genetic “mistakes.”

    Then James typed: I posited that there has been no proven genetic connection.

    You are correct that no “gay gene” has been identified. It is still not known why a consistent proportion of humans are gay or lesbian. Other commenters claim that gays “recruit” others to their “team”. While it’s true in certain situations (e.g., prison, the military, same sex academy, college) individuals have sex with others of the same sex, then revert to hetero life afterward.

    Is your point that gayness must be a genetic “mistake” but that has not been proved?

    Mr James typed: why does a grown man/woman want to perform sexually in front of children

    This is a common refrain of the nuPuritans, but does it happen? Is a drag queen reading the Velveteen Rabbit to kids and parents at the library really performing sexually? And why do you trust the State but not the parents?
