Liberalism and the Trashification of America
Two women face charges after an infant was left in a hot car outside of a strip club in Tennessee as the child’s mother was onstage for an audition, according to multiple reports.
Kelsey McMurtry, 24, was auditioning at Deja Vu Showgirls in downtown Nashville while her daughter sat outside in a car with the windows rolled up around 4 p.m. Thursday, police told WKRN. Passersby noticed the girl and called authorities.
In a warrant, officials said it was 72 degrees outside when officers arrived and temperatures inside the car had likely topped 100 degrees. The girl was wearing a heavy coat and drenched with sweat, WKRN reported. Witnesses estimated she spent at least 30 minutes in the car.
She was taken to a hospital for treatment, where the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services responded to care for her.
At the scene an officer spoke with McMurtry’s friend, 19-year-old Summer Taylor, who said she had an eye on the child while her mother auditioned, according to WSMV. However, witnesses told police she never left the strip club in the 30 minutes the child was outside.
Police arrested McMurtry and Taylor on charges of child neglect. Authorities also charged McMurtry with criminal impersonation after she allegedly lied about her name in an apparent effort to avoid an outstanding warrant, WSMV reported.
Here’s a question: Does this infant not have a father? Or does Kelsey McMurtry have no relatives who could help her? Of course, we are two generations into the Welfare State’s project of dismantling the traditional family, so it’s possible Kelsey McMurtry’s parents and siblings and aunts and uncles are all part of the debris.
This is the human wreckage created by liberalism — people without functional kinship networks, without moral values, with no sense of purpose or meaning in their lives. In other words, Democrat voters.
