The co-founders of Moms for Liberty were interviewed on “60 Minutes” about sexually explicit books in schools, emphasizing concerns about children being indoctrinated and exposed to inappropriate content.

The organization has been challenging books like “Gender Queer” and advocating for restrictions on such materials in schools, sparking debates and legal actions in states like West Virginia and Maryland.

“We love teachers,” Moms for Liberty co-founder Tina Descovich said. “My children have had the best teachers. I’ve had the greatest teachers that have influenced and impacted me.”

“But there are rogue teachers in America’s classrooms right now,” Descovich added.

“Parents send their children to school to be educated, not indoctrinated into ideology,” Moms for Liberty co-founder Tiffany Justice said.

“What ideology are they being indoctrinated into?” Scott Pelley of “60 Minutes” asked.

Descovich said, “Let’s just say children in America cannot read.”

“They often dodged questions with talking points,” Pelley narrated over the video.

“You’re being evasive,” Pelley said. “What ideology are the children being indoctrinated into? What is your fear?”

“I think the parents’ fears are realized,” Justice said. “They’re looking at these books where sexual discussions are happening with their children at younger and younger ages.”

“Tiffany Justice read from sexually explicit books written for older teens but found in a few lower schools,” Pelley narrated. “Most people wouldn’t want them in a lower school. But in a tactic of outrage politics, Moms for Liberty takes a kernel of truth and concludes these examples are not rare mistakes but a plot to sexualize children.”
