Do you ever wonder what’s going to become of our poor country? What it’s going to look like when our leaders and judges and opinion-shapers are done with it?
One change that’s become flaming obvious is the near-total absence of children outdoors on a lovely summer day. People who come from countries where they still live like human beings marvel at this; they think it is unnatural. To them it looks very strange, not to see children playing outside.
The kids are all indoors, of course. We want to keep them “safe.”
And then in September we send them back to public school, where they really are in danger.
I call it danger when the classroom is turned over to some “gender coach” who teaches the kiddies that “you can be a boy one day and a girl the next, depending on how you feel.” That video was filmed in 2011 at Redwood Heights Elementary School in Oakland, California.
Of course, before they can be exposed to the danger of some wacko pounding a lot of perverted garbage into their brains, children first have to get past Planned Parenthood. In all the excitement over Planned Parenthood selling the organs of aborted babies—and getting away with it, so far—we tend to forget that Planned Parenthood doesn’t lose interest in our children if they’re lucky enough to be born alive. They come after the live children with what is laughingly called “sex education,” of which Planned Parenthood is one of the chief providers. Check out their “Teenwire” website.
This stuff is infinitely more dangerous to children than the much-feared “unsupervised play.” Oh! And by the way, despite the fact that parents have actually been thrown in jail for allowing it, unsupervised play is not against the law. The law prohibits negligently allowing a child to be exposed to an imminent danger—leaving a baby locked in a hot car, for instance, or letting a toddler wonder into the street among the traffic. In many cases, police and government agencies interpret that to mean virtually anything—like letting your 10-year-old walk to the playground a block away to have a turn on the swings.
Maybe they ought to be arresting parents who send their kids to public school to be gender-coached.
It doesn’t end with your child’s high school graduation. A whole new set of dangers faces the young adult who goes on to college. Our great universities are always on the lookout to pounce on any student who has the wrong opinion and is careless enough to express it.
Texas Christian University—did you get that “Christian” part?—recently came down like a ton of bricks on a student who tweeted some discouraging words about the head-hunters of ISIS and the rioters in Baltimore. They sentenced the lad to 60 days’ “community service,” a spell of “sensitivity training,” provisional suspension, and some sessions with a psychiatrist! Clearly the young man must be mentally ill, to have such a low opinion of the Islamic State and its penchant for beheading Christians and other dissenters.
He was probably lucky TCU didn’t have his head cut off.
If somehow you get past the abortionist, make it through public school without being turned into an ignoramus and a sexual libertine, and then survive college, going on to create a small business for yourself, you’re still not out of the woods. They’ve got your religious freedom in the crosshairs. Just try and decline a demand to take an active part in a “gay wedding,” because it lacerates your religious sensibilities, and see what happens. Bye-bye, livelihood. Haven’t you learned yet, with all that education, that homosexuals outrank you? Disobey them at your peril.
The only freedom our neo-Stalinist rulers intend to preserve for you is the freedom to sin—or, to put it as the Bible puts it, to sell yourself into slavery to sin. Knowing that they are bound for Hell themselves, our rulers mean to have plenty of company down there. “Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven,” as John Milton’s Satan said.
And through it all, we sit and watch TV, and maybe go to work if we’re lucky enough to have jobs, and tamely suffer all the insults and abuses that our masters throw at us. Even when we get upset enough to elect different ones, the new rulers just pick up where the old ones left off—
Destroying our businesses, erasing our national borders, redefining our most basic social institutions, using threats of imaginary Global Warming to gobble up our tax dollars and our liberties, teaching our children to be anti-Christian left-wing idiots, and laughing in our faces as they do it.
How much more of it can we endure, before the lids blows off?
Well, it’s their country—not ours.
