‘No Such Thing As Other People’s Children’: Progressive Group Slammed For Creepy Attack On Florida’s Parental Rights Bill

The progressive group “Together Rising” is being slammed for its creepy attack on Florida’s “Parental Rights in Education” bill and for its point-blank admission that they view other people’s kids as something society should control. While it may seem like a new development, observers have been warning for several years the Left’s assault on the traditional family unit is explicitly linked to indoctrinating children with their progressive political agenda.

On Tuesday, the group shared a social media graphic, fear-mongering that the bill — incorrectly branded the “Don’t Say Gay Bill” by the Left — would harm children.  As The Daily Wire has previously reported, what the bill would actually do is ban teachers from instructing students in kindergarten through third grade on topics relating to sexual orientation and gender, among other things designed to protect children and increase parental rights and transparency.

Nonetheless, Together Rising pledged to provide financial support to LGBTQIA2s+ groups in Florida because “there’s no such thing as other people’s children.”

In a statement on its website titled “We Say Gay,” the group in part alleged that across the country children’s rights are being assaulted (emphasis added):

We know that the rights and safety of these precious children are being attacked not just in Florida and Texas but all across the country.

We stand with them and the LGBTQ+ community, and we will keep investing in these kids and their families.

Because there’s no such thing as other people’s children.

As a result, they are donating $150,000 to a number of groups, including, Compass Community Center, which is “a queer-led, deeply-respected community center in Palm Beach County that serves LGBTQ+ youth, starting at age 3.”

Leftist writer calls for parenthood to be abolished to achieve equity, says your children should be given to ‘homeless neighbors’ or to the state

A writer is proposing that California abolish parenthood so that the state can “achieve true equity.”

The outlandish proposal was presented in an article published in the “opinion” section of the Ventura County Star – a daily newspaper published in California. The publication is owned by Gannett – the largest newspaper company in the United States. The article titled “California should abolish parenthood, in the name of equity” was also republished by Yahoo in its “news” section.

The author of the piece is Joe Mathews – a co-president of the Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy, which is “dedicated to those active on issues of direct democracy, participation and citizens’ rights around the world.”

The article touts Californians as having the goal of “equity” to be their “greatest value.” However, Mathews notes that parenthood prevents true equity because “fathers and mothers with greater wealth and education are more likely to transfer these advantages to their children, compounding privilege over generations.”

House Democrats Block GOP Effort to Codify Parents’ Bill of Rights

Parental oversight of their kids’ education shouldn’t be a complicated or divisive issue, but — as statewide elections in Virginia last month showed — parents’ rights have become a partisan wedge as Democrats seek to keep America’s families from having a role in what their children are learning.

To preserve parents’ ability to keep tabs on what’s going on in schools and protect their ability to get critical information about the people to whom they entrust their children, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy drafted the Parents’ Bill of Rights with Reps. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), Julia Letlow (R-LA), Burgess Owens (R-UT), and Jim Banks (R-IN).

The House GOP’s proposal is simple: Parents should have the right to review their school’s curriculum and reading materials, to be heard, to see school budget and spending, to protect their child’s privacy, and to be updated on any violent activity at school.

While the ideas in the Parents’ Bill of Rights are straightforward and seemingly common sense, Democrats don’t want such rights protected under federal law. So, House Republicans led by Rep. Letlow put Democrats’ opposition to parental rights into the congressional record.
