Libs of TikTok's Chaya Raichik Writes Book, Goes on Crazy Promotional Tour

Chaya Raichik

The hate account creator and runner has written a children's book that she's self-publishing and selling on her anti-LGBTQ+ website.

The hate activist who created a Twitter account dedicated to targeting LGBTQ+ people for violence and intimidation is publishing a children’s book, and right-wing media figures are enabling the grift.

Chaya Raichik, who created and runs Libs of TikTok on Twitter, is publishing a book she claims will help protect kids from left-wing indoctrination.

Rupert Murdoch’s conservative New York Post published a rosy feature announcing that Raichik, 28, was adding author to her list of self-described accomplishments when her first book comes out March 14.

No More Secrets: The Candy Cavern tells the story of Rose, a second-grade lamb whose new teacher, Mr. Wooly, is more interested in giving her sweets than teaching her how to count and read, the New York Post reports.

On the right, so-called anti-woke activists like Racihik and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (who has invited Raichik to stay at his mansion) have successfully spread the false notion that a group of left-wing liberals in cahoots with doctors, teachers, and librarians is infiltrating schools to turn kids gay and trans or otherwise sexualize kids in school.

“Every single day in America, our children are under attack, specifically in the school system, and that’s what I seek to expose every single day,” Raichik said during a Monday appearance on the Fox News morning program Fox & Friends.

“Why do these far-left activists in our schools want kids to read porn so badly?” she asked.

Raichik pivoted to the sell, mentioning that she had written a book that “has really important messages for some of these things that we’re seeing in our culture where they’re really targeting children and going after kids.”

Raichik, who most recently worked as a real estate agent before becoming a full-time internet troll, is neither a journalist nor an expert in child pedagogy, though she has claimed to be the former.

“These far-left activists in our schools, they want to sexualize kids. They want to confuse them about their identity. They want to tear down childhood innocence, and children are the people that we have to protect at all costs,” she claimed.

“My hope is that everybody reads it because it’s really not political,” Raichik claimed with a straight face. “It just has a message for parents and children across America.”

One of the hosts read an excerpt from the book in which a teacher gives a student candy and tells the person that they can have as much candy as they’d like because his classroom is a safe space, and though the student felt weird about secretly eating candy despite their parents having said not to, the teacher gives them a lollypop anyway and the child enjoys it.

The parallel Raichik is drawing with this tale is unclear, but the hate activist seemed to relish one of the Fox News hosts’ apparent understanding of the parable during the overly friendly interview.

“The comparison is evident,” the host said. “Teachers in schools don’t want parents to know what’s going on.”

Properly prompted, Raichik said, “Exactly, and that’s a trend that we’ve been seeing the last few years, which is something that I called out. This book is really a tool for parents and children to be able to have that conversation.”

According to Raichik, adults are “sterilizing” children and providing them with adult-themed entertainment in schools, the Post reports.

Her Twitter posts have attracted threats of violence and harassment against their subjects, including bomb threats to children’s hospitals that she has targeted.

Far-right influencers have often engaged in a grift that involved writing children's books as part of their outrage income stream.

Ari Drennen, LGBTQ+ director at Media Matters, wrote a number of tweets highlighting how far-right YouTuber Steven Crowder and far-right activist and pundit Matt Walsh delved into authoring kids' books.

“They can call me whatever they want, they can blame whatever they want on me, but I’m not going to stop doing this work,” Raichik told the Post.
