Media prop up SPLC list to rip ‘far-right’ group

June 21, 2023

Moms for Liberty is, as we’re told, a far-right group. This must be true because that famously unbiased American press and media are telling us this. Like at the Daily Dot, headlined, “Dirty Delete: Moms group weaponizes parental rage to push its far-right agenda.”

Do you see the way this goes? Parents are upset, and it’s the far-right that capitalizes on this? Instead of the more accurate description of Moms for Liberty being the parents who are upset?   

“Moms for Liberty channeled anger about COVID-19 restrictions to become a right-wing political juggernaut,” according to the article. “The far-right group was founded in late 2020 by current and former school board members in Florida who were pissed off about masks and vaccines for kids.”

There’s a trick here: Anyone opposing the standard woke and progressive views gets described as “far-right.” How could anyone who doesn’t subscribe to woke and progressive views be anything other than far-right? In the minds of those progressives, this is definitional. Those who oppose the plans are, by definition, evil, and “far-right” is that very definition. 

This led to the Southern Poverty Law Center naming Moms for Liberty as a hate organization just recently. Because they’re not woke, they must be a hate group, right? This then allows media like Daily Dot to call Moms for Liberty far-right, because the SPLC said so.   

We’ve pointed this out before about the SPLC. Anyone who doesn’t sign up for the SPLC’s ideas gets described as a hate group, as part of that “far-right.” They even do it to medical groups. The basic calculation is not woke = hater.

This is convenient to the progressive media, of course. There’s this well-known and accepted group, that SPLC, allowing them to call everyone they disagree with a hate group, which is the very function of the SPLC itself. It’s a fount, generator, of propagandistic names.

Moms for Liberty may be correct, and they may be wrong. That’s for each of us to decide for ourselves. But they undoubtedly are a group unhappy with how the woke and progressives are taking education. So, the woke and progressive will call them a far-right hate group simply because the SPLC is already set up as the generator of that sort of propaganda.  


Accuracy in Media uses investigative journalism and citizen activism to expose media bias, corruption and public policy failings. Progressives and their allies in the newsroom have a stronghold over the mainstream media in this country, but they aren’t stopping there.

They are targeting our education system, Big Tech, the entertainment industry — every facet of America’s culture.
