Democrats angry at school-related campaign signs calling them ‘groomers,’ ‘radicals’

Democrats in Pennsylvania’s Bucks County are miffed at campaign signs in the area which refer to them as “groomers,” “radicals,” and say they “bring chaos” to the local school district.

According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, the signs are “inflaming an already bitter battle” in the election season, “which have focused on culture-war issues and personal attacks.”

One sign reads “Hey Democrats! Groom dogs not kids! Schools teach academics not porn,” while another notes a candidate “supports sexually graphic books for minors” and “won’t protect girls’ sports/safe spaces!”

Yet another claims a candidate supports defunding the police and “Marxist BLM [Black Lives Matter].”

State Senator Steve Santarsiero, the Democrat chairman, says the Central Bucks School District-related placards are “defamatory,” but he and his party are going after them on a technicality: State law requires any sign which “expressly advocates the election or defeat of a candidate” indicate who paid for it.

Some of the signs don’t have this, while others read “PAID FOR BY: LetsGoBrandon.com.”

A hedge fund manager “associated” with that website said he had no knowledge of the signs but added “they sound funny and on brand.”

In August, some community members also were outraged by mailers featuring explicit images from the books “Gender Queer” and “This Book is Gay.” The Republican-controlled Central Bucks School Board banned these books last year, a move Sen. Santarsiero opposes. He explained his reasons here, of which Senate Bill 7 is a big component.

From the story:

“Extreme Central Bucks Democrats are fighting to keep these books in our middle school and high school libraries,” said the mailers, sent by Stop Bucks Extremism — which promised to continue highlighting the “disgusting” positions of the Democratic candidates.

The GOP operative behind the PAC, Bob Salera, told Fox Business last week that he was “banned” from Staples, where he had an online mailbox that served as the return address for Stop Bucks Extremism’s mailers.

According to Fox, Salera said he was told by Staples that “many people” complained because they were “highly upset” about the content of the mailers. …

Diana Leygerman, a volunteer for Central Bucks Neighbors United, the slate of Democratic candidates, said the signs were “coming from people who are losing.” She added that Democrats believe their opponents are also stealing their signs, and have started placing AirTags on some of them to track their movement; on Tuesday night, they traced one heading to South Philadelphia.

If folks were upset about Salera’s mailers, imagine how parents feel knowing the images contained therein could be available to their kids in the school library.
