There’s probably only a few things that are worse for a decent Mom than seeing your son turn into a MAGA creep. Well, in a bid to save the reputation of Karens nationwide, this Mom has had enough and she’s going about it in a very brave and very smart way:

[Karen] Amsden said that after her son was released from jail, he told her he’d continue to stand with the group, so she delivered an ultimatum. “I told him, ‘Well, then you can’t live here. You can choose between Patriot Front and your family.’ And he’s like, ‘Well, I can’t quit Patriot Front.’ I’m like, ‘Well, then you’ve just chosen. So pack your stuff and get out of my house.’”

“I would love to do whatever I can to out him [as a Patriot Front member] so that he can’t be a part of it,” she said. “And that they don’t want him to be a part of their group because his mom has loose lips and a big mouth and he’s never going to get away with anything.”

Karen Amsden, mom of alleged Patriot Front member and Springville, Utah resident Jared Michael Boyce, said on Monday that her son has struggled to fill “a void” in his life ever since his father left the family years ago and came out as gay.

Not only did this great Mom hold her son accountable for his loathsome choices, she’s making a very brave attempt to do her part to limit the damage he can do going forward by publicly outing him and speaking out about it. This is a pretty brave move and she should be celebrated for it given that the police in Idaho have been getting death threats from Patriot Front’s supporters. If more families in America had the integrity of Karen Amsden, we’d be in a lot better shape in 5 to 10 years I think.
