Protesters showed up on Philadelphia’s Chestnut Street outside the Museum of the American Revolution on Thursday as Moms for Liberty began their annual summit in the city.
The event is the second annual summit for the organization, primarily taking place at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown through Sunday. However, the Philadelphia museum was reportedly vandalized after protesters expressed their discontent with the venue hosting a summit reception there, according to Fox News.
"We are devastated to see the Museum of the American Revolution targeted last night by hateful vandals who broke windows and destroyed historical symbols of our country's freedom. The core of a free republic is to allow for the peaceful discussion of different ideas. We pray for peace in the days ahead," Moms for Liberty wrote on Thursday.
Jack Posobiec posted a video on Twitter, showing agitators outside the hotel yelling obscenities at the event attendees.
Posobiec posted a second video, tweeting: “BREAKING: Far-left mob screams 'F**K YOU AND YOUR FASCIM' at moms arriving at Moms for Liberty in Philadelphia ‘Philly is a Trans City! Philly is a Trans City! These Hoes for Hitler Got to Go!’”
The American Historical Association (AHA) reportedly sent out a letter to the museum before the event, suggesting that they “reconsider” their decision to allow Moms for Liberty to hold a reception there, per the report.
The letter from the AHA read: “For the AHA, this isn’t about politics or different understandings of our nation’s past; it’s about an organization whose mission is to obstruct the professional responsibilities of historians. We encourage you to reconsider whether this organization should be granted the legitimacy of holding a major event at a museum with the reputation and professional standing of the Museum of the American Revolution.”
Protesters also set up tables around the area, giving away so-called banned books. The books in question appear to be those that have been deemed inappropriate for school-aged children, many of which include sexually explicit images and imagery.
Jay W. Richards, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, claimed that the protesters did not know what they were protesting, adding that the mothers in attendance would not be dissuaded by their tactics.
Moms for Liberty was started by former school board members, Tina Descovich and Tiffany Justice, who “witnessed how short-sighted and destructive policies directly hurt children and families.” The group has since been deemed a “hate group” by the Southern Law Poverty Center.
"We are against indoctrination. We want education for our children," National Director for Outreach of Moms for Liberty, Catalina Stubbe, said. "We are trying to defend our children and raise transparency in education.”
Speakers at the event include prominent GOP presidential candidates, including former President Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and Nikki Haley.
