Another conservative mom allegedly behaving badly: PA activist lands in hot water

Another conservative mom allegedly behaving badly: PA activist lands in hot water

As a parent, I can attest that one of the more infuriating aspects of the so-called parental rights movement is the sheer, unmitigated gall these people display while they purport to act in the interests of other people’s children.

In nearly every circumstance, their tactics merely amount to imposing their own—usually warped, usually religious-inspired—sense of morality on other, often unsuspecting parents. The recent travails of Bridget Ziegler, one of the co-founders of the Florida group “Moms For Liberty,” illustrates what happens when that gall is revealed as pure hypocrisy. 

But these people truly seem to be crawling out of the woodwork everywhere, apparently with lots of free time on their hands to intrude into other peoples’ business. Evidently, they get themselves so riled up living in their hermetically sealed social media bubbles that they assume they’ve been granted some divine right to dictate how other parents ought to raise or school their children. So when one of them gets caught with their pants down (sometimes literally, in the case of the Zieglers) yes, a certain degree of schadenfreude is a perfectly appropriate response.

As Isabela Dias at Mother Jones reports, one of these moral crusaders was recently charged with multiple morally questionable offenses in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
