Democrats are angering libertarian parents, and it could cost them dearly midterms.

“You don’t want to mess with moms going through puberty.” Sarah Palin stated in 2010. “If you think the bulls are tough, you don’t want to mess with .” mama Grizzlies. ”

Perhaps her warning was just a dozen years too early? If this is not clear then Glenn Youngkin became the first Republican to win a statewide election in Virginia since 2009, this week reiterating three progressive school board members in San Francisco to make one thing clear: The parental revolt is now spreading across the country.

What awakened grizzly mama (and dad) from hibernation in the City by the Bay? Instead of prioritizing reopening of schools (ironically, will help the most vulnerable communities), San Francisco’s Board of Education wasted no time voting to rename a third of its schools, including those named for oppressors like George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Sen. California Dianne Feinstein. To make matters worse, the reasoning they use to make some of these decisions Incorrect history.

While, Asian Americans were angry when the district’s most prestigious high school, Lowell High School, was moved from a merit-based admissions system to a lottery. To complicate matters, tweets appear from the vice chairman of the board (as described by The New York Times) insists that “Asian Americans were like slaves who benefited from working in slave owners’ homes.” She also accuse them of using “The white supremacist mindset to blend in and ‘go ahead’.”

Progressives have found an amazing way to unite the Tiger Moms, Soccer Moms, and Mama Grizzlies (and fathers) into an identity political alliance where parenthood triumphs over ideology.

Conservatives can never solve this problem on their own. So how did this start? With close the door.

“Democrats always underestimate numbers Democratic Party member Rory Cooper, a Republican strategist living in Virginia, was driven mad by the school closures, told Politico last year. “In my very green neighborhood,” Cooper continued, “there are first-time Republican voters who follow this cycle, which you normally think is nuts a year out of Trump. But they voted for their benefit, which is what voters usually do, and their interests include their children. “

The same thing happened in San Francisco — a city famous for its hippies, hipsters, and vagabonds — where politics “wake up” the Board of Education, along with closed and sick, making even the most liberal moms-to-be this week. Yes, conservative money poured in in to support the movement; but remember that less than 7 percent San Francisco voters are registered as Republicans.

Furthermore, it literally means More dogs than children in San Francisco, but the parent has skins in the game. Many other progressive parents want their children to have a normal childhood again, and academic decline, emotional problems caused by isolation, and education-related problems are among the things they do. need primary attention.

In major cities across the country, the story is the same: Serious requirements for masks (such as forcing the kids to wear them on the playground during recess), strict protocols and continued school closures (or policies equivalent to closures) highlighted the fact that progressive politicians and teachers’ unions are more concerned with promoting their personal or political interests than in taking care of our children. And when it comes to input from parents, they make it clear that they don’t care.

Remember, for all the chatter about Critical Race Theory (CRT) and politics of gender identity, it’s Governor Terry McAuliffe’s bluff (“I don’t think parents should say it.” with schools what they should teach”), that really made him in.

This kind of lost arrogance is still on full display. Take Los Angeles for example.

Last weekend, the city welcomed tens of thousands of undisguised Super Bowl fans, including the mayor of LA. But the Los Angeles Unified School District still imposes a out side mask duty for school children. Democrats don’t seem to have learned their lesson about hypocrisy, and so I can only surmise that electoral defeats will continue to pile up.

Since the arrival of COVID-19, educational issues themselves have become a culture war issue plaguing libertarian parents. When combined with issues like the CRT, you get a powerful political mix that drives many voters. According to a recent report by PoliticoResearch by Democrats alone has shown that “that some battlefield voters think the party is ‘preaching,’ ‘judgemental,’ and ‘focused on the culture wars.'” looks like a more tsunami.

We are witnessing the birth of a powerful new alliance, or will the parental revolt back down as the strictest COVID protocols give way to those that take into account a more sensible risk-benefit analysis? That is a big question.

Parental revolt is tied to other existing trends: progressive elites failed to communicate with their constituentsand working-class Americans (in some cases, members of minority groups) who were formerly allied with the Democratic Party are being push to the right.

I have voiced reservations about similar populist movements, most recently regarding Canadian truckers block roads and bridges opposed to the vaccine mandate. While this parental revolt has spawned a number of redundant and extremeAs a father, I can stand behind this populist movement.

Loving parents are taking responsibility for their children’s education by participating in the community.

In San Francisco and Virginia, the most effective blows were hit at the ballot box. This is America. This is a civil right. This is democracy.

Democrats would be wise to pay attention. We are parents, hear us roar! Democrats are angering libertarian parents, and it could cost them dearly midterms.
