Bethany Mandel is a political commentator, homeschooling mom of six, co-founder of Right Books 4 Kids, and co-author of Stolen Youth: How Radicals Are Erasing Innocence and Indoctrinating a Generation. She went viral after tweeting, in March 2020:
You can call me a Grandma killer. I’m not sacrificing my home, food on the table, all of our docs and dentists, every form of pleasure (museums, zoos, restaurants), all my kids’ teachers in order to make other people comfortable. If you want to stay locked down, do. I’m not.
I spoke with her about what kids and parents are facing today in the era of mask mandates, Covid lockdowns, gender identity ideology in schools, and smartphones.
