One wonders how much trouble we’re going to get into, letting liberals raise children.
On Australian TV a few days ago, “relationship expert” Deanne Carson—she comes complete with pink hair—exhorted parents to “set up a culture of consent in the home” by making sure to get the baby’s consent before changing his diaper. [YouTube Video]
Just because she’s crazy doesn’t mean she honestly doesn’t know a three-month-old infant can’t say, “Sure, Mom, I’d kind of like a clean diaper!” What she wants you to do is to read the baby’s body language. Then you’ll know you’ve got consent to remove the dirty diaper. And those who criticize her, she warns, are “negating the voices of those brave survivors of abuse.” Just because she has pink hair doesn’t mean she can’t take herself very seriously indeed.
This opens up the prospect of a whole new world of disastrous child-rearing. As the baby grows into a toddler, and so on, his consent will be required for more and more parental actions. Sweetums, can I put you to bed now? No, I wanna watch TV all night. Junior, is it okay for me to serve you vegetables with your supper? Vegetables? No way! I want cake! Precious, I need your consent to send you off to school. School, schmool, I’m stayin’ home with my video games! Like, can you even imagine the character development of such a child? It’s probably the best way yet discovered to create a monster.
But if you think that’s as loopy as it gets, you haven’t seen the special Mother’s Day ad put out by America’s most reliable source of far-left loopiness: Democrats. And you thought they’d never dream up a way to politicize Mother’s Day. [YouTube Video]
Here we have an all-American mom wistfully wondering where she went wrong. It seems her son started going bad in middle school, robbing “less fortunate” kids. She has kept a framed picture of him assaulting some poor kid at school. Somehow I can’t imagine my mother displaying such a picture on the bookshelf in the living room.
Well, she sent him off to college, because every ninny goes to college, and—wouldn’t you know it?—college turns him pro-life! In what galaxy far, far away is the college that does that? She’s got a picture of Junior terrorizing a defenseless pregnant woman by brandishing a sign that says “Baby Killer,” it looks like he’s about to clout her over the head with it. Why did Mom save that picture? But her crowning disappointment came when she got an eyeful of his “college buddies,” neo-Nazis parading around with torches. She keeps that picture, too. I wonder what her family photo album looks like.
Her closing remark, delivered to the audience: “This Mother’s Day, talk to your children about the GOP. I wish I had.” And then she downs a swig of vodka, which does shed some light on her mind-set.
Believe it or not, there are a few Democrats out there who think this ad might backfire on them, I guess by letting normal people know how much Dems hate them. That’s something they might do better to conceal, although these days they seem to be taking less and less trouble to do that. There’s not much fun in being a liberal fat-head if you have to conceal your contempt for the human race.
What is it about family that leftists find so off-putting? Is it just because family, church, and voluntary associations compete with the state for the individual’s allegiance and affections? Do they truly believe that everyone who’s not a Democrat must be a Nazi?
These are the people who want to rule our country: who want ever-increasing powers to interfere in our lives, because they think they’re wiser and better than the rest of us. Really, it’s for our own good, we’ll thank them for it later. You bet.
We must never again allow them to gain power in America. And we must strip them of the power that they have already.
