Tony Morton, a former South Park writer, is on a mission to "lampoon" right-wing activist group Moms for Liberty, which "has been at the forefront of a national movement to ban books (or even yearbooks) containing race, gender, LGBTQ themes, and sexual content," The Daily Beast's Kate Briquelet reports.

Briquelet writes "For Morton, what started as comic relief is morphing into a fundraising campaign, one that will create pages for each state. 'My plan is to disrupt this hate group for as long as possible with billboards, pamphlets, background information and other tactics,' Morton said. 'They have no interest in truly educating children and would rather actively prevent them from learning the true history of our country. I have a lot of support around the country so I'll continue updating my website about this group in each state so people are fully aware.'"

Morton's website,, features "swastikas encircling the 'parental rights' juggernaut's logo, a leadership page that boasts Hercules actor turned conservative pundit Kevin Sorbo as their minivan driver, and a listing of items the moms have 'banned for fun' including the board game Sorry. 'Those who are taught to say 'sorry' are weak,' the fake site for the far-right group declares. 'NEVER apologize for your actions because your actions are probably warranted if you're white.'"

Briquelet notes that MomsForLiberties states, "We are an extremist organization that prides itself on making sure that freedom of speech and choice only applies to those who believe gays are demonic. Hitler actually wasn't that bad so Jews should stop overreacting, any transgender are considered trash and need to be disposed of, current teachers in this society should be under the control of fascists who know better, and that any teachers who disobey deserve to be handled by any means necessary and this includes physical control."

Morton's overall objective, Briquelet adds, is to "combat the growth of Moms for Liberty across the country, as concerned parents assemble groups of their own including Stop Moms For Liberty, Our Schools USA, Defense of Democracy, and Red Wine and Blue. In Pennsylvania, citizens launched an organization Grandmas For Love."
