I Saw Goody Proctor Teaching CRT: On Moms For Liberty and Other Racist, Fascist Vigilantes

The wingnut war on (alas, often unlovely) reality goes on. In schools nationwide - all those wee minds to shape! - frenzied battles have morphed from masks to books "pornographic" (queer), "divisive" (stories of color) or "communist" (whatever makes right-wingers discomfited.) New Hampshire is so caught up in anti-CRT and other "fake-ass astroturf racist bullshit" that Moms For Liberty (sic) offered a $500 bounty to anyone who “catches” a teacher talking about racism. "Y'all really out here snitchin?" asks one patriot. "Is it because you're sad you couldn't burn witches?"
