Last Friday, Joy Reid coordinated a confrontational interview with Tiffany Justice, a conservative activist and co-founder of the Moms for Liberty organization.
Reid, a progressive liberal, attacked Justice for advocating for what she called, “age-appropriate” content in schools.
Interestingly, Reid used a book that profiled “incest, child rape and pedophilia” as an example of literature that should be allowed in elementary school libraries.
The book Reid hailed is titled “All Boys Aren’t Blue.”
Reid’s argument was, for most, unconvincing. One social media user labeled her “the epitome of idiocracy.”
When Reid indicated the book should be read by students, Justice responded incredulously, saying, “What a tragic story of a young man who is anally raped by an adult family member.”
On Monday, conservative podcaster Megyn Kelly blasted Reid — referring to her as an “idiot” for criticizing Justice and her followers for calling on public schools to remove books with explicit sexual content from student libraries.
In her interview with Justice, Reid suggested schools offer a form whereby a student’s parents could indicate which books their child could or could not check out. Justice responded that sexually explicit material is not appropriate for minors and should not be made available in a public school setting.
According to the New York Post, Megyn said: “This idiot actually wanted to know what ‘expertise’ @4TiffanyJustice has to object to minors in school reading about strap-on dildos & incestual pedophilia.”
Kelly lauded Justice’s work, noting that via their advocacy, 29 school districts nationwide have banned sexually explicit content in public school libraries.
Moms for Liberty is a Florida-based conservative organization that was founded three years ago by two former school board members who “are using their first-hand knowledge and experience” in “empowering parents to defend their parental rights at all levels of government.”
