WILLIAM ESTRADA: Parents Are Winning. That’s Why Far Left Is Turning Us Into Bogeymen.

Are “parental rights” some secret Bat Signal for right-wing evangelicals? The answer is yes, if you are writing for Salon. In a recent article, author Kathryn Joyce argued that “parental rights” is really the latest attempt of right-wing evangelicals to win elections.

Joyce has a long history of trying to pin blame on right-wing evangelicals. She has previously attacked international adoptions and large families only if they’re Christians (not any other faith, or lack thereof). So, it is not particularly surprising that now that parents from across the political spectrum are speaking up, she’s ready to blame it all on her favorite scapegoat: right-wing evangelicals.

Except it’s false: Parents from across every racial, demographic, ethnic, and political background are fighting against bureaucrats over who will decide basic questions regarding the education, upbringing, and care of their children.

It’s not just right-wing evangelicals. It’s parents from across the political, religious (and nonreligious), and demographic spectrums.

Targeting a broad spectrum of concerned parents as domestic terrorists was probably the American Left’s most damaging self-own this century.

But given that leftism has no limiting principles and the inherent illegitimacy of their power, they also had no choice but to try.

Which tells you pretty much all you need to know about leftism.
