Stand Fast In Liberty

[Adapted from a speech given by Marie Rogerson, Executive Director of Program Development, at the Joyful Warrior National Summit July 2022]

My husband is a Marvel fanatic. He read comic books as a kid and may have convinced me to let him buy one autographed by Stan Lee shortly before Stan passed. He is always so excited to get me to watch Marvel movies. Before we’re allowed to click play I have to endure a mini Ted Talk on the origin story of the characters. He tells me how they grew up, what happened in previous movies that might tie in, how the director chose to interpret “cannon”, and so much more.

Truthfully, he normally gives up a few minutes in when he sees my eyes start to glaze over because I just want to get on with the show. Today, I hope you won’t find yourselves in that situation, eyes glazing over, as I share a little insight into our origin story as Moms for Liberty and touch on the importance of the word Liberty in our name.

The Most Powerful Moms in America Are the New Face of the Republican Party

Their crusade against public education is just the beginning.

It is the first full day of the inaugural Moms for Liberty Joyful Warriors National Summit, and 500 such warriors are listening raptly as Florida governor Ron DeSantis delivers the keynote address. They fill tables in the grand ballroom of the Tampa Marriott, waving “Mamas for DeSantis” signs, and wearing T-shirts bearing the slogans “I don’t co-parent with the government” and “Stop woke indoctrination.” They jump to their feet and cheer when DeSantis, who is obviously considering a presidential run in 2024, brags about having stood up to Disney’s “leftism” and again when he refers to President Biden as “Brandon blundering around every time you go get gas.”

The moms have been primed by a morning program that has been nothing short of a pep rally. First came a deluxe version of the national anthem, replete with a rarely sung verse added in 1986. A color guard of four teenagers looked on, flags, sabers, and rifles by their sides. A prayer followed, enlisting God in the fight against the scourge of progressivism in schools. When DeSantis finally took the stage, three Moms for Liberty leaders presented him with a bright blue sword, emblazoned with the group’s logo. “It is what the gladiators were rewarded with after they had fought a long, hard battle for freedom,” said the group’s founder Tina Descovich. “So this is a representation from all of us moms here in Florida and across the country that appreciate all you’ve done to stand up for parents’ rights.” Clutching the sword, DeSantis grinned at the crowd as the press at the back of the ballroom snapped pictures.
