Activist Mommy claims LGBT groups ‘sneak into schools to rape the minds of our children’
A right-wing online campaigner who has a following as the ‘Activist Mommy’ has claimed that LGBT groups are “sneaking into schools” to “rape the minds” of children.
The state of sex ed teaching in the US, with more than half of states requiring ‘abstinence only’ lessons, while seven continue to maintain ‘no promo homo’ laws that ban schools from mentioning the existence of homosexuality for students.
But ‘Activist Mommy’ Elizabeth Johnston, who earned a large fundamentalist following on social media by campaigning against women’s healthcare and LGBT equality, is leading a campaign to block any reform.
Ms Johnston, who has more than 500,000 Facebook devotees, has launched a nationwide ‘Sex Ed Sit-Out’ protest to oppose teaching about ” sexuality and sexual orientation” in schools, under the banner “Hands off our kids!”.
The campaign claims that “children are being taught how to have anal and oral sex, masturbate one another, and question their gender” and encourages parents to “say NO to graphic, gender-bending, promiscuity-promoting sex education for our kids”.
Ms Johnston homeschools her ten children.
But speaking on an internet stream run by the anti-LGBT Family Research Council, she claimed that the LGBT community was “sneaking into schools” to teach kids how to have anal sex.
She said: “Would you believe that special interest groups like the Human Rights Campaign, a radical, leftist LGBT organisation, and Planned Parenthood are working in concert together and sneaking into the schools, claiming to be abstinence-only education.
“Do you know what they consider ‘abstinence-only’ to be? Teaching kids how to masturbate with each other and anal and oral sex.
“Not to mention that the Human Rights Campaign, of course, is encouraging kids to question their gender through ‘anti-bullying’ programs.
“Parents don’t know this is taking place! They are very sneaky with the language, they change the names of the programs so that parents can’t trace the programs.
“This is outrageous, and we aren’t going to stand for it. Our kids’ innocence is not for sale.”
Ms Johnston continued: “You don’t own our children and you’re not allowed to rape the minds of our children with this pornographic material. We’ve got to rise up and take our kids back.”
She claimed that gay groups were bribing schools with funding in order to put LGBT issues on the curriculum, before claiming: “We’re seeing this topics discussed in the History curriculum and the science and the math. They’re talking about kids going to gay bars in word problems in math.”
She went on to describe Alfred Kinsey, who wrote much of the early theory about sexuality, as a “monster” who is “responsible for a lot of this”.
The activist also peddled an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory about philanthropist George Soros orchestrating the anti-gun March for Our Lives and anti-sexual harassment Women’s March.
Ms Johnston previously went viral by burning a copy of Teen Vogue magazine that she claimed mentions anal sex and homosexuality.
Johnson, who homeschools her ten children, uploaded a video in which she publicly burns a copy of the magazine.
She explained: “I cannot believe what this Teen Vogue piece of trash has printed.
“They are teaching children how to be safely sodomized. They are teaching kids how to have anal intercourse. We should not be teaching children, period, how to have sex.
“Look at what’s in this magazine for teenagers. How to masturbate, all about homosexual sex, gender fluidity.
Looking at a picture of Lena Dunham wearing a suit, she adds: “Oh yeah, real role models for our teenagers!”
The mother said: “Go to your local gas stations, your local libraries, your local grocery stores, ask to speak to the manager or owner, and demand they remove Teen Vogue from the shelves immediately.
“These editors’ brains are in the gutter, now let’s put their sales in the gutter where they belong. Don’t let your kids read garbage.”
Johnston slowly rips up a copy of the magazine, throwing it page by page onto a bonfire.
Critics later pointed out that the article about anal sex she was upset about was only in the online edition.
