Host goes quiet when mom gives blunt answer to book-banning question

Host goes quiet when mom gives blunt answer to book-banning question

The parental rights movement is growing, and even CBS is talking about it.

"CBS News Sunday Morning" recently aired an interview with Tina Descovich and Tiffany Justice — former Florida school board members and founders of the Moms for Liberty organization — and hosts asked them if they supported book-burning.

Moms for Liberty was launched in 2021 and now claims 275 chapters in 45 states with 115,000 members and counting.

The group has grown exponentially after bringing attention to books like "Genderqueer" in school libraries, which the moms have deemed inappropriate.

“Never bet against a mom,” Justice said in the CBS interview, “I mean, nobody’s going to defend anything like a mom is going to defend their child.”

She continued, “We want people who are serving an elected office [to] respect the role of the parent in a child’s life.”

And they’ve been very successful.

Co-founder Descovich confirmed. “So, in 2022,” she said, “our chapter’s endorsed in over 500 school board races across the country, and they won 275 seats.”

When the "CBS News Sunday Morning" host asked what kind of books they want in libraries, Descovich said they want books that “educate children.”

The host called her answer a “generalization,” and Justice interrupted.

“Books that don’t have pornography in them. Let’s start there. Let’s just put the bar really, really low. Books that don’t have incest, pedophilia,” she retorted.

The host then went quiet.

Dave Rubin believes CBS airing this piece is a step in the right direction but is “only possible because more and more people are stepping up and fighting for the right thing.”

“The point here guys,” he continues, “is that something positive comes when you tell the truth.”
