When photos taken in 2014 of migrant children in cages were released during the Trump administration, the fake news media and Left accused the president of keeping kids in cages and treating them like animals. Basically, they were accusing him of crimes against humanity.
Despite the fact that, once again, those photos were taken in 2014 and thus, during the Obama administration, the Left took that ball and ran with it as much as they could, accusing Trump of despicable things. Despite that being one of the many debunked hoaxes the Left propagated about Trump, they used that up until he left office.
Now, however, with Biden being the Occupier of the Oval Office, the narrative has changed. Biden is still keeping kids in cages and even recently, opened a “migrant facility for children”, according to the WaPo.
“First migrant facility for children opens under Biden,” read their headline. Wanna know what the headline would have been under the Trump administration? “First migrant concentration camp for children opens its cold, steel gates under Trump.”
They would have made this “migrant facility for children” sound as much like it’s Auschwitz as they possibly could. But under Biden, they call it a “migrant facility for children”. And the WaPo tried to make it look like it’s a vacation resort for the kids, writing:
“At the 66-acre site, groups of beige trailers encircle a giant white dining tent, a soccer field and a basketball court. There is a bright blue hospital tent with white bunk beds inside. A legal services trailer has the Spanish word 'Bienvenidos', or welcome, on a banner on its roof. There are trailers for classrooms, a barber shop, a hair salon. The facility has its own ambulances and firetrucks, as well as its own water supply.”
“The most colorful trailer is at the entryway, where flowers, butterflies and handmade posters still hang on its walls from Carrizo’s first opening in 2019.”
Like they point out, the facility was first opened in 2019, when Trump was president. When he was president, the WaPo made sure to make the facility look as bad as it could, quoting an operator of that shelter as saying “I hate this mission” and getting a video of “Inside the holding facility for migrant children in Carrizo Springs, TX.”
Since their articles are behind a pay-wall (and I refuse to give my money to Leftists), I can’t really access them, but one of the articles they wrote recently was titled “No, Biden’s new border move isn’t like Trump’s ‘kids in cages’” when talking about this very facility being opened back up.
So they are very much aware of the hypocrisy of the Biden administration, having attacked Trump for keeping “kids in cages” and then proceeding to keep kids in concentration camps and in shipping containers. But since this is a Democrat in office that we’re talking about, they have to restructure and reframe the narrative.
“Kids in cages” is now “kids in friendly migrant facilities where they get all the things they wanted”.
But I have no issue with attacking Biden for this crap. I’m not even going to go with the hypocrisy angle, because hypocrisy largely doesn’t stick to the Left. I’m just going to take the Left’s place in their accusations.
The facility that Biden is putting migrant kids in looks like a concentration camp and the actual buildings like they are shipping containers.
Occupier Biden is keeping kids in concentration camps. That’s the story.
Of course, the Biden administration, knowing damn well that this makes them look bad even if the fake news media is on their side, is trying to rationalize and justify the decision to open it back up.
Biden’s Press Sec. Jen Psaki argued that they were reopening that facility “Because of COVID-19 protocols”, saying that “the capacity at existing Office of Refugee Resettlement shelters has been significantly reduced because, of course, you can’t have a child in every bed. There needs to be spacing, and we abide by the spacing to protect the kids who are living in those facilities for a short period of time.”
So they are saying “social distancing” is the reason for reopening that facility.
Well, of course the Chinese coronavirus is the reason for it. After all, even the Nazis prioritized putting people with health issues in the concentration camps first. And, of course, the Nazis also made sure to separate parents from their kids, much like the Biden administration is currently doing.
No, it doesn’t matter that these are unaccompanied kids. It’s up to the federal government to ensure that kids are with their parents and if they don’t do that, they are Nazis. Those are the rules that we have come to understand over the last four years, and those are the rules that we will make sure to enforce here today.
Further, the Biden administration is planning on “resettling” the kids in the States, as opposed to sending them back to their parents. So they are willing to put the kids’ lives at risk of abduction and abuse by just letting them go in the States? How positively inhumane.
It’s clear to me and to anyone who has been paying attention that Biden is literally Hitler and his government workers are Nazis.
I say that only half joking, seeing as he seeks to employ socialist policies much like Hitler did, including the restricting of free speech. Biden and the Democrats, entirely unsurprisingly, are far closer to Hitler than Trump ever was.
But it’s amusing seeing Biden completely flake on every campaign promise he made during the general election. He promised things like “no more kids in cages” and “no deportations in my first 100 days in office” among other things. He backtracked on basically everything, which partly explains his poor approval numbers. The other part that explains his poor approval numbers is that the majority of the country didn’t elect him into office in the first place and didn’t want him anywhere near power.
And now that he has power, even those who did vote for him are regretting having done so.
Biden is not only putting kids in cages, but also in shipping containers and sending them to concentration camps. Why is Joe Biden committing crimes against humanity?
And, unsurprisingly, Leftists which previously condemned Trump’s use of the facility are also changing their tune when Biden uses it.
AOC, who previously attacked Trump as holding “concentration camps”, gave Biden a slap on the wrist, at worst, tweeting:
“This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay – no matter the administration or party. Our immigration system is built on a carceral framework. It’s no accident that challenging how we approach both these issues are considered ‘controversial’ stances. They require reimagining our relationship to each other and challenging common assumptions we take for granted. It’s only 2 mos into this admin & our fraught, unjust immigration system will not transform in that time. That’s why bold reimagination is so impt. DHS shouldn’t exist, agencies should be reorganized, ICE gotta go, ban for-profit detention, create climate refugee status & more.”
Yeah, two things to say about this.
First of all, this “kids in cages” thing, as I alluded to earlier in the article, only began to seem like an issue because Trump was president. The Flores Settlement, which is the reason the detention center system operates as it does, came during the Clinton administration. Since then, two Republicans and one Democrat were president, with another Democrat being Occupier. If this has been such a massive ethical issue, why didn’t Obama do anything about it in eight years?
Secondly, Biden just reopened the migrant facility. That’s not an attempt to “transform” the “unjust immigration system”. That’s an enforcement of that immigration system, and a decision that he didn’t need to make, even if rationalizing it as having been because of the Chinese coronavirus.
The guy has also deported hundreds of illegal immigrants since he took office, despite promising not to do so throughout the campaign trail. So it doesn’t matter that it’s only been two months (one, actually, not two, but I can’t expect AOC to know how to count), because this is a conscious (as much as it can be with Dementia Joe) decision to reopen a facility that did not need to be reopened, particularly if you seek to change the immigration system.
So don’t give me that crap, and yes, AOC, it apparently is okay depending on the administration or party. You called them “concentration camps” outright when Trump was in office, and now that Biden reopens a facility, I see nowhere in your posts that you called them that again.
So allow me to take your place here: they are concentration camps and Biden is Hitler. Trying to justify this makes you a Nazi.
Biden should be impeached and imprisoned for crimes against humanity and every second he isn’t is a threat to national and human security.
“Do you suppose, O man – you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself – that you will escape the judgment of God?”
Not too long ago, I wrote about how likely voters agree with Trump that this country needs patriotic education, and I also agreed with that notion, knowing that the Left is teaching Marxist communism in our schools, indoctrinating the skulls full of mush into being commie puppets. Well, perhaps unsurprisingly, teaching kids the wrong thing begins by teaching kids nothing.
A recent study by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany showed some astounding and shocking results, to say the least. According to the New York Post, “Nearly 20 percent of millennials and Gen Z in New York believe Jews caused the Holocaust…”
How, exactly, do you even manage to do this? What could you possibly be teaching kids about the Holocaust that leads them to believe that the most well-known victims of it WERE THE ONES THAT CAUSED IT?!
And this begs the following question: is this a failure of education or is it deliberate spreading of disinformation by the school system?
I really don’t know, and I certainly don’t have evidence to support the latter option, but this is, at best, a MONUMENTAL failure by the New York school system.
Now, usually, roughly 20% of people believing something isn’t a whole lot, but it is a massive deal when we are talking about this particular subject. You have to be trying really hard to get young people to believe that the Holocaust was caused not by Hitler or Nazi Germany but by the Jews themselves, despite the extremely well-known fact that six million Jews died in concentration camps during that time period.
Seriously, that particular fact is up there in terms of most common knowledge, like the Pythagorean theorem, the fact that the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell and that Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492 (not that that’s the most common thing taught regarding Columbus in the modern education system). If you’ve finished grade school, you know about how six million Jews died in the Holocaust and that they were the group of people most often killed in that horrific event.
Well, at least, I assume that people would know this. Given these news, and the fact that it’s been years since I’ve finished high school, let alone grade school, I’m not even confident that the school systems are even teaching this anymore.
Chances are that instead of teaching about the Holocaust, teachers might just be giving their students lectures about how racist this country is, how it was founded by racists and for racists, and how if you are a white kid, you have white privilege, while if you are not a white kid, you are a victim. Chances are that instead of teaching kids about history, the schools are teaching them about gender identity and other bullcrap.
I wouldn’t know since I don’t have a kid myself, so maybe a parent with a child in grade school could look over the assignments (as they should, particularly considering Leftist teachers don’t seem to want parents paying attention to what they are teaching the kids) to verify whether or not I am in any way correct, but I really wouldn’t be surprised if I’m not too far off.
At any rate, returning to the NY Post, they also reported that “although there were more than 40,000 camps and ghettos during World War II, 58 percent of respondents in New York cannot name a single one.”
This one is almost as bad as the nearly 20% who think the Jews are responsible for the Holocaust (and now that I think about it, considering how anti-Semitism has been on the rise in that craphole of a city, perhaps anti-Semitism is at least partly to blame for kids believing that nonsense). Nearly 60% of New York respondents couldn’t name even one concentration camp? Not even Auschwitz, which is undoubtedly the most infamous of them all?
But here is another number that is even more astonishing and awful: “60 percent of respondents in New York do not know that 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust.”
So I was kind of right, then. If that many young New Yorkers don’t know that fact, it’s because the schools aren’t teaching it.
How in the world is it that 60% of New York respondents don’t know that six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust? What exactly is being taught in those schools, because it's clear they aren't teaching historical facts relating to it.
Now, according to the study, 34% said they believe the Holocaust happened but that “the number of Jews who died has been greatly exaggerated or believe the Holocaust is a myth and did not happen or are unsure.”
Let’s begin with the first issue, that they think the number is exaggerated. I believe that one can be relatively explained by misinformation online and things like that, because there are people out there who outright deny that the Holocaust happened, despite the fact that we have people alive today WHO WERE THERE WHEN IT HAPPENED. One of them was even invited by Trump to one of his State of the Union addresses and Trump talked about how our U.S. military freed him and he thought they were angels sent by God (and basically, they were).
We have people who are alive today who are actual victims of the Holocaust, who were interned in one of the camps. Auschwitz has been turned into a memorial which one can visit in Poland. How does anyone come to the belief that the Holocaust didn’t happen, or it was exaggerated?
How does anyone miss that six million Jews were killed during this time? Well, I suppose by having far-Left teachers more focused on teaching critical race theory or gender fluidity or parroting climate cultist talking points than teach a class that six million Jews died during the Holocaust, and therefore, there is NO WAY the Jews could have possibly been responsible for it.
But here is a number that is truly shocking, more so than the others, which even I am at an absolute loss over: “A shocking 28 percent of respondents in New York believe it is acceptable to hold neo-Nazi views…”
Considering how much of an effort the American Left and the fake news media makes to paint Trump as “literally Hitler” or as a Nazi, you would think that considerably fewer people would find neo-Nazi views acceptable. Never mind that neo-Nazis are white supremacists who are Nazis themselves, and that alone should lead the vast majority of people to reject them, but it is especially surprising considering that the Left makes a great effort in painting Trump as one such person.
My best guess as to why this is is that, like I said before, there has been a massive rise in anti-Semitism in New York. Orthodox Jews have been, more and more often, the target of anti-Semitic attacks, discrimination, etc. Before the pandemic began, back in December of last year, I wrote an article that talked about a number of horrific anti-Semitic attacks happening in New York. Of course, there were a lot more incidents than the one I talked about in that article, but still, it was clear that New York had and likely still has a huge anti-Semitism problem.
This, perhaps, can explain some of the numbers we are seeing, but it is still unbelievable to see such numbers. Granted, I wasn’t exactly expecting the best out of New York, but still. Even going by the Leftist narratives that Trump is a Nazi, considering how many Democrats there are in that city, you would think they would be considerably less tolerant of neo-Nazi views (or at least, the ones that are openly neo-Nazi, considering that socialism is something that they seem to love).
That so many young New Yorkers think that the Jews are to blame for the Holocaust is baffling. It sounds like satire, but it’s reality. Granted, it’s not a majority and it’s nowhere close to a majority, but nearly 20% of millennials and Gen Zers in New York thinking that the Jews caused the Holocaust is a catastrophic failure in education, at best. At worst, it is a malignant attempt to literally blame the victim for the atrocity in an effort to sow further division and chaos.
There need to be SERIOUS changes made in the schools in this country. Not only do we need patriotic education, we need education IN GENERAL because clearly, these kids aren’t learning jack, and the things they are learning are useless garbage that won’t help them in the real world apart from making them communist puppets and useful idiots for the Left.
I hope something major is done about this, but changes need to happen at the top. Here’s hoping the people of New York have enough sense to boot their dangerous and lunatic leaders out of office and that the GOP can offer solid solutions for them.
“O simple ones, learn prudence; O fools, learn sense.”
When the Left isn’t excusing itself for the horrendous act of killing the unborn, they attempt to do the second closest thing they can: completely pervert and destroy young children’s minds with lies, deceit, and utter perversion.
While they already do plenty of the first two when they indoctrinate kids into believing we are killing the planet, Democrats in Washington State want to do the third thing with young children starting from kindergarten.
Democrats in Washington State are pushing House Bill 2184, which states: “In accordance with the requirements in this section and any recommendations of the sexual health education work group… that are enacted by the legislature, every public school shall provide comprehensive sexual health education to each student by the 2022-23 school year.”
Radio host Jason Rantz of KTTH points out about the bill: “One section of the curriculum for teachers to use as a guide suggests talking to students about the penis as not having ‘any bones in it, but when people talk about an erection as a “boner”, they’re mistaken.’ Girls are taught about a ‘very sensitive little area at the top called the clitoris.’”
I don’t know about girls, but I learned about these sexual things, for the most part, in middle school, not necessarily because we had classes specifically dedicated to teach these things (I wouldn’t have payed much attention anyway) but because that is roughly the age when puberty hits us and we begin to ask questions about ourselves and our bodies.
A FIVE-YEAR-OLD does not wonder about a “boner”. A FIVE-YEAR-OLD does not wonder about the clitoris. When I was around that age, I once went to a beach and saw a girl who was younger who, for some reason, did not have her bottom on. Embarrassing as it is to say this, I saw what she had and briefly made a mental note about how she didn’t have what I have. Then I promptly went about my business because I WAS AROUND FIVE YEARS OLD AND I DIDN’T CARE ABOUT THAT STUFF!
Wanna know what I cared about at that age? Watching cartoons while eating a sandwich and drinking orange juice. I cared about playing with my toys; playing with my Max Steel action figure; playing with my toy cars (I really liked cars back then, so I had a lot of them); going to friends’ houses to play with them and their toys. I cared about watching old Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network or Disney Channel shows (that were not old at the time) and generally watching and enjoying TV. I DID NOT CARE OR KNOW ABOUT SEXUALITY BACK THEN BECAUSE THAT’S NORMAL FOR SOMEONE THAT AGE!
But the Left cares not for the normal. They care not for what is right. They want to mold and manipulate young people’s minds, as evidenced by the fright they give them about climate change. They want to teach young kids about sexual things and, what’s worse, about how “some” boys don’t have penises and about how “some” girls don’t have a vagina aka about transgenderism, in an attempt to normalize it.
According to The Daily Wire, the curriculum has statements such as the following: “This lesson does, however, acknowledge that ‘there are some body parts that mostly just girls have and some parts that mostly just boys have. Being a boy or a girl doesn’t have to mean you have those parts, but for most people this is how their bodies are.’”
Rantz also noted how the curriculum suggests for 1st grade students, “teachers should have their students read ‘My Princess Boy’ before teaching the six and seven-year-olds about reproduction.”
That revolting book is about exactly what you think it is about: a gender-confused boy. On Amazon, the description says: “Dyson loves pink, sparkly things. Sometimes he wears dresses. Sometimes he wears jeans. He likes to wear his princess tiara, even when climbing trees. He’s a Princess Boy.”
This is the sort of filth Washington State Democrats want young kids to read and I doubt this sentiment is contained within the borders of that particular state. The Left is EXTREMELY disturbed and this is one of the MANY reasons I say that they are evil. There’s just no other way to explain this sort of disturbing behavior. Wanting young kids to learn about sex and transgenderism is SICK and DEPRAVED and anyone who defends this perversion is just as twisted as the people pushing for it at the State’s capital.
This, by the way, goes against the will of the people, who 54% say that “sex education for children in grades K-5 should not be required,” according to The Daily Wire. But public opinion be damned, these perverts want to destroy young people’s minds and they will do everything within their power to do it.
And unfortunately, they will likely get their way, barring some miracle, as both legislative chambers in the State of Washington are controlled by Democrats, with the House having 57 Democrats to 41 Republicans and the Senate having 28 Democrats to 21 Republicans, so the disgusting bill will, in all likelihood, be eventually passed (if before the 2020 election) in both chambers of State Congress.
Despite the fact that most people do not want young kids to be taught about sexual education (though 54% is about 46 percentage points too low for my liking) and despite how clearly evil and disgusting it is, the Democrats in this State will push to teach young kids about things they couldn’t care less about and things that will only end up either confusing them further about a subject they couldn’t care less about or end up messing them up profusely, which is likely the desired outcome for the Democrats, though they would never admit it.
But beyond everything else, these sons and daughters of Satan will seek to cause these young children to sin against the Lord, because that is their desire, even if they don’t know it or believe in a God to sin against in the first place.
In Matthew chapter 18, the disciples asked Jesus “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” Jesus called a child to him, put him in the midst of them and said: “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world for temptations of sin! For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the one by whom the temptation comes!”
Now, before anyone says it, yes, I know that this is not about a literal child, but about a Christian being humbled, like a child, but being led astray by someone who is evil and forcing the Christian to sin against God. That teaching from Jesus was about “the greatest in the kingdom of heaven” being those who humble themselves before the Lord, similar to how a child humbles himself and is ready to be taught, not necessarily about actual children being led astray. However, there is no doubt in my mind that there are children in the State of Washington who go to public school and are believers of the Lord Jesus. And with this sort of curriculum, they are being led astray so as to sin against the Lord.
In this case, the Bible passage’s meaning takes a bit more of a literal meaning than it was originally intended, but the point remains: the evil Left is causing believers in Christ, who humble themselves in His name, to sin against the Lord. This is the great evil that the Left is doing, following their father the devil in his evil deeds.
The Left, in all their evil, believes God has no place in school, but that it is perfectly acceptable to teach young kids about sexuality and about transgenderism as being perfectly normal and moral. Unsurprising to me, but revolting nonetheless.
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness to light and light to darkness, who replace bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”
A recent story from North Carolina caught my eye. In all certainty, it won’t be reported on the mainstream news, or anything outside of the actual area where this is happening, but a North Carolina man, who has an extensive background in gun-handling and safety, is teaching children as young as six about gun safety.
Michael Pegram, founder of Echo Firearms Training in Mint Hill, North Carolina, told WBTV: “There was no other class like this. So, I decided to come up with it.”
The children of his class reportedly spend about four hours, both in the classroom and shooting. Pegram says that, “It’s the parents’ choice of what their kids should be around. I’m just offering a class to let them learn to be safe, if they’re going to be around them.”
Seeing as North Carolina is a concealed-carry state, this class makes a lot of sense.
But it should be noted that it’s not a class where kids simply are given “military-style” or “assault” weapons. Far from it, they work their way up from using and shooting a Nerf gun (that also happens to be how I started out) and eventually get to shoot nothing more powerful than a .22 or a 9mm.
Pegram says: “A lot of times they’re not shooting a nine-millimeter. But once in a blue moon, if they know what they’re doing, and I know they can do it, we have done that.”
WBTV also asked parents about this subject, with mixed results. Some parents were concerned about the program, while others were happy about it. A pretty normal result, all things considered.
One man said: “My daughter’s five years old. And thinking of her shooting a gun, it’s kind of crazy.” Another man said: “It seems like a bad idea.” But they were also open to the idea being a good one at least for older children. The same man who said he thought it was a bad idea went on to say: “If we’re going to have guns in this country, one of the things we need is really strict training classes.”
And the man who mentioned he had a five-year-old later said: “On one hand, maybe it’s good to teach gun safety. But then on the other hand, that would be my one concern, is it would make kids comfortable handling guns, and could lead to more accidents, possibly.”
Other parents, however, were happy with the idea of a course that taught young kids about gun safety, with one saying: “If we keep it away from the kids, they most likely will want to mess with it.”
One 9-year-old who recently graduated from the course told WBTV a little about what he learned, with things like: “If you see a gun, tell your parents,” and “Never point a gun at people.”
Pegram also mentions that the purpose of the course is to take away the unknown from the children. “And they have the knowledge to be safe when they do come across a gun.”
As mentioned earlier, Pegram has an extensive background in gun-handling and safety. He is an NRA-certified handgun instructor and range safety officer with over 30 years of experience handling firearms, has a concealed carry permit and is an instructor for those who wish to receive one of their own in North Carolina. He also reportedly has 24-hours of South Carolina Law Enforcement Department training and his company, Echo, provides courses for adults surrounding much of the same topics of firearms safety and handling, as well as self-defense and has a course for teachers about how to respond to an active shooter.
Suffice it to say, the man is well-qualified to be teaching firearm safety to children.
Now, what am I thoughts on all of this? Given the tone of the article thus far, you can guess that I approve of this.
Let’s review some of the comments made by the concerned parents.
But before that, I will say that I don’t blame them for their skepticism.
The idea of a five-year-old firing a gun can seem crazy. And to acknowledge the point of one of the parents, having kids be more comfortable handling guns could potentially lead to more accidents in as far as a child using a gun is more likely to get into an accident than a child not using a gun.
And that makes sense, as the likelihood of an accident occurring with a firearm increases with just the use of it. But then again, the whole point of these classes is to get kids used to handling a gun and handling it safely.
I’d much easier trust a child with a gun if he or she knows how to use it than I would trust an adult with a gun if he or she does not know how to use it. I often call guns “the great equalizer” not simply because they can be used by people who are physically weaker than their attackers but because they can be used by anyone who knows how to use them to great effect.
Children who learn how to use firearms safely and responsibly are more likely to grow up with that mindset, knowing perfectly well how to use guns to defend themselves should the need ever arise.
But what matters more than anything else, regardless of whether or not you agree that this sort of class is a good idea, is that children are taught the right things.
For example, one parent mentioned that kids might mess with guns if you try to keep them away from them. While he and I agree that this course is a good idea, that is not exactly a good argument. We keep alcohol away from kids too and no one suggests we train them on how to drink responsibly (until they are of legal age, at least). And besides, children can be kept from trying to mess with a gun by simply teaching them the right things.
For me, when I have children, I will teach them how to use weapons maybe around the age of 6, 7 or 8 (provided my wife also approves). Naturally, I will have at least one gun (likely more) in my house by the time I have children, so before I teach them how to use a gun, I must first instill the fundamental knowledge that a gun is not a toy and they are not allowed to mess with it, otherwise they could get hurt.
What is important is to teach them the right things the right way. My mother would sometimes tell me of how obedient I would be, even at an age when one wouldn’t think I’d be able to understand any command. When she would tell me not to do something, I would not do it. And while children often will vary in their obedience to their parents, I don’t doubt that I was raised the right way and will do the same with my own children.
Obviously, I would keep guns away from my very young children. Once they got old enough to ask why, I would carefully explain to them that guns aren’t toys and that if they were to play with one, they could get seriously hurt or worse. However, I would ensure them that guns aren’t inherently bad, but that they can cause some bad damage if one is not careful with them (and I would explicitly prohibit my children from actually holding a gun until me and my wife decide they are old enough).
Once they are old enough to be taught how to wield a gun, I would start them off with a Nerf gun, like I did and like how these children in Pegram’s course are. What is essential to be learned from the get-go about guns is to be safe with them and practice wielding a Nerf gun as one would a real one (gun pointed at the ground away from you but also away from other people, wielding arm at the side and pointed down, finger off the trigger at all times except when with the intention to shoot, correct hand and thumb placements of one over the other, correct stance, safety always on until you feel the need to fire, etc.)
Teaching gun safety is no easy task and it’s not to be taken so casually as teaching them how to read or write. A lot is at stake in this particular teaching course and it must be handled with extreme care so as to avoid accidents as much as possible.
I believe teaching children how to safely and responsibly wield and treat guns at an early age is a good thing, but it absolutely must be done the right way with the right measures being taken.

While not necessarily one of the biggest stories in the past couple of weeks, with the current government shutdown becoming the longest in history, Trump hosting Clemson football players and serving them fast food (which is an endearing and very likable gesture that is only attacked by embittered Leftists), and polls saying that most people blame the President for the shutdown but also want a wall more now than a year ago, the story of the L.A. teachers’ strike is somewhat buried among everything else.
However, it has been talked about to some extent, and I feel it is important to point something out: this strike is not about helping kids or improving the schools. It’s not even about the teachers’ most explicit demands of smaller class sizes (a wall could help with that regard, by the way), higher wages and more staff to support faculty. It’s about the political power the teachers’ unions in Los Angeles hold.
And this is not a wild allegation I am making without any evidence. This is admitted to by at least one teacher who wrote an op-ed for PBS titled: “Charter schools are draining LA’s public schools. That’s why I’m on strike.”
But before we continue, let me first give you a little bit of context.
This is a massive, 31,000 teacher walkout in Los Angeles public schools. As a result, roughly “two-thirds of children” are out of school, or at least not being taught, according to Breitbart.
The LA Times reports: “The walkout of 31,000 teachers union members proved to be the massive disruption hundreds of thousands of students and their families had feared. The vast majority of the district’s parents and guardians are low income, and many had to choose between missing work to watch their children or sending them into an unknown situation at school. While campuses remained open, the few adults present struggled to keep students engaged.”
So this walkout is having a tremendous negative impact on communities, many of whom are low-income families whose lives have now been made more difficult, as if they needed it.
And for what purpose? Outwardly, as I stated previously, for smaller class sizes (I wonder why that’s a problem in sanctuary state California), higher wages for teachers and additional support staff.
However, as the teacher from the op-ed writes, it’s largely about the impact charter schools have on public schools. In other words, they don’t like that non-unionized competitors are kicking their butts.
The teacher writes:
“I’m striking to stop charter schools from draining our schools. In addition to seeking lower class sizes, more counselors, nurses and librarians and a pay raise, the United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) is asking that LAUSD stop approving charter schools, which have seen a 287 percent increase in the district’s boundaries since 2008. The loss of enrollment across the district means a $600 million loss from our public schools every year."
"Due to our school’s low enrollment, an English teaching position was cut halfway through the fall semester. Charter schools are publicly funded but are not governed by a local district. In other words, charter schools run more like private schools with little oversight. Most charter school employees are not unionized; therefore approving more charter schools is one way to weaken the UTLA.”
I’m sorry, I thought you were on strike for the kids’ benefit. What benefit does it bring them to have the government close the door on better-run schools? What benefit does it bring them to quit teaching them for the sake of political power?
Actually, this is L.A., so it might actually be more beneficial for kids to not go to school at all than to be indoctrinated and brainwashed, now that I think about it.
But still, the general idea is that kids suffer whenever there is a teachers’ strike. And this one is largely, if not entirely, for the benefit of the union (as they usually are anyway, but I digress).
Even socialist darling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) expressed her support for the striking teachers, saying: “These LA teachers striking against privatization + demanding smaller classrooms/more support for their students is a whole 2019 mood.”
I don’t know what that’s supposed to mean in this context, but that’s very clearly showing support for them and even acknowledging that the biggest reason for the strike is pure politics.
According to Breitbart: “Charter schools are especially favored by black and Latino families precisely because they offer an escape from failing public schools in the inner city – which, many argue, are failing partly because of the control the union enjoys.”
It’s not hard to see why the schools are failing. The unions are backed by the Democrat Party and recently defeated charter school advocate Marshall Tuck a second time in the race for state school superintendent in last November’s elections.
However, Breitbart notes that “charter school advocates won two seats in the L.A. Unified School District elections the year before. And last year’s Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME freed public employees from having to pay mandatory dues to the union.”
So the teachers’ unions in Los Angeles are losing a bit of their power, are gravely threatened by charter schools, and choose to go on strike over them, regardless of the pain they may cause low-income families in their communities.
The reason these teachers choose to strike, at least primarily, is for their own benefit, not that of the children.
And the worst part might actually come in the form that the LAUSD is already stretched very thin with regards to money. According to LA School Report, the organization’s plan to avoid going bankrupt and having the County take over is cutting 15% of staff.
So the teachers are making selfish demands for almost purely selfish reasons to an organization that is facing bankruptcy and would actually be a detriment to the teachers if it actually went bankrupt.
All for the purposes of the Democrat-backed unions to retain the power they’ve enjoyed for so long that has ruined L.A. public schools and was at least one of the biggest reasons for the surge of charter schools in the city.
In the meantime, while these children in adult costumes demand “justice”, actual children are left in the dust to be either taken care of by their parents who have to choose between working that day or taking care of their child or sending the kids to the schools anyway and hope for the best, knowing full-well that they won’t likely be taught anything.
All because these teachers want to retain their power over the education in the city. Instead of competing with charter schools to improve themselves, this is the route they chose.

It is safe to say that our current political climate has gone well-beyond toxic and entered the realm of violence. Not only are you not allowed to think a certain way, you will be punished for thinking a certain way. Anyone who utters a conservative thought, who dons a MAGA hat, who openly supports this country or their local GOP candidate is considered less than human, and thus, expendable.
Though we have not quite gotten to the point where we are outright killing each other Civil War-style, that certainly seems to be the direction we’re headed. Tensions aren’t being de-escalated, and it certainly doesn’t help that nut-jobs like Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Maxine Waters and many in the MSM, particularly CNN, encourage this violent behavior against the Right.
But here’s the thing: these Leftists, as unhinged, dangerous and evil as they might be, are also huge cowards.
Allow me to elaborate. One particular trend I’ve noticed as of late is that whenever there is violent confrontation between Leftists and Right-wingers, the Left had some sort of advantage. Be it strength in numbers, strength in weaponry, or simply physical strength against someone who is of the fairer sex.
Breitbart News has documented 603 acts of violence and/or harassment that the media has approved of thus far. But you can add another 2 to that list, since in Nevada, a Leftist operative of a Soros-funded organization physically assaulted the female Republican campaign manager for GOP gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt. According to the Daily Wire, this is the nut-job’s second time being arrested for assaulting a Republican woman.
The second would be a small Antifa group in Portland, OR, where I used to live, harassing and verbally accosting a 9/11 widow until a group of counter-protesters, some of whom were larger men than the “man” who accosted the widow, chased the small group away from the woman.
Looking over the rap sheet of acts of violence/harassment, we can see things like: Sen. Susan Collins being sent a letter filled with ricin to her home, a Republican candidate being sucker-punched in a Minnesota restaurant, a FEMALE Republican State Representative being assaulted in Minnesota, a female conservative reporter being threatened with rape by an elderly Leftist man (and feminists defending said man, even though we’re supposed to believe all women), CNN anchor Don Lemon defending the mob that chased Ted Cruz and his family out of a restaurant by saying the mob had the Constitutional right to do that (spoiler alert: they didn’t), and perhaps more prominently, a Leftist protester kicking a pro-life woman.
There are also other things, such as a Leftist attacking a Republican House candidate in Northern California with a switchblade, a Trump supporter being attacked by a punk rocker in one of the rocker’s own shows (and being kept from fighting back by the other attendees), and who could forget the shooting at a Virginia baseball practice that targeted Republicans and sent Rep. Steve Scalise to the hospital?
What many of these incidents have in common is that the Leftist attackers have the confidence to attack or harass someone. But when an equal or greater force meets these Leftists, they deflate like a badly baked soufflé. I’m sure you’ve seen some videos of Leftist thugs getting beaten up by counter-protesters. When things get a little too violent and the Left thinks they can take someone on, if they don’t have some sort of advantage, they completely fall apart and retreat.
Because at that point it’s either that or getting their butts kicked.
But the entire thing exposes these two things about the Left: 1) they are evil, otherwise they would never dare harass or attack someone for a petty reason like a political disagreement and 2) they are cowardly, only daring to take action when they feel they have some sort of advantage, be it a weapon, physical dominance over a woman, or strength in numbers.
Whenever we talk about gun control, the Left will always utter taunts like “why do you need a weapon? Are you just not manly enough?” which is especially rich considering that they heavily scrutinize any man that even remotely appears to do something manly, and considering the fact that many on the Left could easily be considered beta males.
But they utter such a taunt because they want to make gun-owners appear to be cowardly, hiding behind a gun. And yet, it is strictly the Left who uses guns to do a shooting. You will never see a conservative shooting up an establishment with the intention of killing Democrats. That’s something only the Left has been documented to do. Why? Because of the previously-listed reasons: they are evil and cowardly.
The Virginia baseball field shooter was reportedly shouting about healthcare. Instead of trying to win elections, he opted to simply exterminate the Republicans in Congress, or at least as many as he could. That is not only evil, but also massively cowardly.
As are the rest of Antifa and anyone who wants to pretend to fight for something worthwhile on the Left (of which there is nothing). They accost Right-wingers whenever they feel they have some sort of advantage. But at the first sign of equal or greater opposition, they become emasculated and retreat.
Now, if this were a war, that’d be understandable. Only someone with a death-wish would willingly throw themselves into a disadvantage. You attack when you feel you have some sort of advantage, for the most part. However, this is not war (yet) and these are not soldiers fighting for their country.
These are children who failed to grow up, at least mentally and emotionally, and pretend to fight fascism all-the-while employing the exact same tactics the Fascist black-shirts and the Nazi brown-shirts employed to gain power. These are not soldiers fighting the Taliban. These are children fighting law-abiding citizens who disagree with them. People who are simply trying to enjoy a meal, or walk down the street, or express their beliefs.
These are people that think they are expressing their beliefs by acting in the way they do. People who simultaneously deny others their right to free speech if that speech is different from their own.
Earlier, I mentioned Don Lemon saying these mobsters have a Constitutional right to do what they did to Ted Cruz and his family. To quote, here’s what he said: “… But that doesn’t mean that people don’t get to object. That’s your right as an American to object. It’s covered in the First Amendment… In the Constitution, you can protest whenever and wherever you want. It doesn’t tell you that you can’t do it in a restaurant, that you can’t do it on a football field. It doesn’t tell you that you can’t do it on a cable news – you can do it wherever you want.”
Aside from being a notorious racist, Don Lemon is also a massive moron. You can protest in public areas, but not in private property. You need the permission of the owner to protest in private property. But beyond arguing against such a stupid argument, let me take a step back here. THESE ARE NOT PROTESTERS! THESE ARE RAGE-FILLED MOBS CHASING PEOPLE OUT OF RESTAURANTS!
A peaceful protester will not accost someone. That goes against the definition of a peaceful protest. To call these people anything other than a mob is asinine. And I find it fascinating that Don Lemon thinks these people have the right to do this, but Ted Cruz and his family don’t have the right to enjoy a meal in a restaurant.
But anyway, that’s mostly just a tangent that I really wanted to cover here just to expose Don Lemon as the piece of crap that he is. A racist, a hypocrite and a massive moron.
Returning to the overall point, it becomes clear to anyone with eyes and a functioning brain that these “protesters” are nothing but a mob. That these people are evil and cowardly, only daring to get violent if they feel they have some sort of advantage.
Again, these are not soldiers. These are very privileged children who have yet to face reality. If there ever is another Civil War in this country, it will be a quick one.

I find it difficult to say that the Left can get any lower. That would be to insinuate that they have not hit rock-bottom. Well, they’ve hit rock-bottom and somehow continue to dig further down.
An article by PJ Media brings to light some horrendous things Planned Parenthood is doing… aside from leading the world in infanticide.
The article is titled: “Parents Stage Walkout Over Planned Parenthood’s Graphic, Violent Sex Ed in Public Schools.”
Upon learning just what these sick people are teaching children in schools, you’d want your child to stay home from school as well.
The article begins: “Sex education in public schools has gone off the deep end. Gone are the days of handing out birth control and practicing putting condoms on bananas. These days your kid is more likely to come away from school with more sexually deviant knowledge than single gay dudes in New York City have thanks to Planned Parenthood’s comprehensive sex ed program that has somehow made it into public school curriculums. These programs teach dangerous and violent practices like BDSM, asphyxiation, gender-bending, anal sex, and let’s not forget ‘rimming,’ which can saddle your kid with nasty parasitic infections.”
Now, I won’t tell you what each of these things mean, lest I corrupt good people’s minds, but these are all pretty terrible things to teach in school. Some of these things are fairly self-explanatory as to what they mean and the others I shall leave you to make the decision of finding out on your own. But upon knowing what they all mean, you’ll likely gag in disgust not only at the fact that these things exist, but more importantly, that they are being taught to CHILDREN!
The article continues: “Planned Parenthood has already been caught on video by Live Action advising a girl they think is 15 years old to allow her boyfriend to beat, whip, and gag her.”
Even more horrendous than teaching them about it is to invite them to PARTICIPATE in these activities, albeit by taking away the actual “sex” from it.
And the irony is not lost on me, though it may be lost on these Leftists, that recently, the Left has been “preaching” about treating women right and not taking advantage of them and would still be willing to subject a teenage girl, who’s a MINOR, in partaking in BDSM with her boyfriend.
You must truly be sick in the mind to do something like that. Both partaking in BDSM and encouraging a teenage couple to participate in it.
Now, there is some bit of good news to come of this. Not from PP or the Left themselves, of course. They are sick, disturbed people. No, the good news comes from concerned parents, as the title of the PJ Media article suggests.
The article quotes organizers of the walkout, called Sex Ed Sit Out: “On April 23rd, parents around the nation will be pulling their children out of school for the day in protest of dangerous and graphic sex education and uniting at various locations to hold press events and field media questions.”
Rhonda Miller, Education chairwoman of the Indiana Liberty Coalition and one of the organizers of this protest made a very good and interesting point: “Follow the money. Comprehensive sex ed is being rolled out across America, often sponsored by special interest LGBT groups like Human Rights Campaign, and disguised as anti-bullying programs. If it’s not okay for special interest groups like the NRA to be buying classroom time to push their agenda, then how is it okay for HRC monies to be buying schools off to teach gender-bending ideology and anal sex tutorials?”
A very good point, as I just said. There’s not a snowball’s chance in Hell that any government-funded school would allow NRA representatives to buy some classroom time to teach children about the importance of the 2nd Amendment, the importance of arming oneself in order to be safe from harm and how to handle a gun safely. Frankly, I would’ve paid an entire school-year’s worth of lunch money to have an NRA representative speak at my school.
I did have a Planned Parenthood representative speaking in one of my classes. Thankfully, I didn’t care to pay much attention and only really remember the representative putting a condom on a banana, which was mentally scarring enough.
I don’t know if I would’ve been able to hold my lunch, that I would literally have right before this class, if that representative started speaking about BDSM, asphyxiation, gender-bending (which I don’t know if it was a thing back then… Truthfully, I still don’t exactly know what it is and I refuse to search for it and further corrupt my own mind), anal sex and “rimming”, all of which I didn’t know about at the time, except for anal sex.
Now, there’s more to this than just what I’ve shared so far. This “comprehensive sex ed” program teaches abstinence too… in a very warped sort of way. You see, the definition of abstinence is to “restrain oneself from indulging” in sexual behavior. But Planned Parenthood’s definition of abstinence includes “masturbation, anal sex, oral sex, and mutual masturbation.”
That’s literally the antithesis of what it means to abstain from sexual behavior. All of those things easily qualify as indulging oneself sexually. How could that be considered abstinence? Then again, that’s a question to ask someone who’s not utterly backwards in their thinking. Someone who uses logic and their brain to think, not their heart or sexual organs.
You ask that question to a Leftist and they’ll likely laugh as though you’re making a joke.
The article then mentions: “New ‘comprehensive sex ed’ programs do not include any discussion of celibacy as a viable alternative to early sexual activity, which can lead teens into poverty, early pregnancy or chronic illness.”
Now that’s not surprising whatsoever. Of course Planned Parenthood isn’t going to encourage kids not to have sex. THEIR ENTIRE BUSINESS REVOLVES AROUND ABORTING UNWANTED BABIES! For Planned Parenthood to encourage kids not to have sex would be the equivalent of Ford Motor Company to encourage people to walk more. Why would they diminish their possible return by teaching celibacy? Because it would be the right thing to do? There’s nothing about Planned Parenthood that is right. Nothing that is redeemable (about their business, not necessarily their employees).
I still find it difficult to say that Planned Parenthood, or the Left in general, can sink to new lows, but this will continue happening. They will only get worse. They won’t stop until they get absolutely everything they want. Even then, they likely won’t stop so that they could retain everything they’ve “earned”.
They will continue to corrupt young people’s minds. David “I’m a Parkland shooting survivor even though I wasn’t there” Hogg is a good example of their work. They won’t stop until the whole world bends to their will. Until the whole world thinks the way they do. And they’ll accomplish that through one of two ways: utter global corruption through decades and centuries of polluting people’s minds (with sexual deviancy being but one of many ways to accomplish that) or through utter annihilation of opposing points of view through police and military forces.
The Left’s ultimate goal is global domination. Not necessarily through warfare like Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union or France under Napoleon, but through “diplomacy” using the U.N.
I believe I’ve said as much in previous articles, but it’s always important to bring up when it’s relevant. Not to deviate from the topic at hand of the disgusting “education” provided by Planned Parenthood, but to demonstrate the road the world is on and show where we’re headed if the Left succeeds.
We need Christ now more than ever and we’ll need him in the future more than we do now. Of course, those who know and understand the Bible, or at least the Book of Revelation, know very well that things will get worse before they get better. And for most of the world, things won’t get better. Thankfully, those who believe in Christ will never have to experience such a dreadful world. As bad as things are today (culturally, that is), it’s truly nothing compared to the foretold seven years of tribulation that lie ahead.
Again, thankfully, Christ’s followers won’t be around to experience it, at least those who believe in Christ before Rapture. There’s certainly a possibility, even likelihood, of people coming to Christ after Rapture. But for those who believe in Him now and today, they will never have to experience those seven years even if those seven years began the second after this article is finished being written or read.
What the Good News brings is the assurance that, while Evil persists in this world, it is only temporary. God’s Will, not Satan’s, is what will not only stand the test of time, but also the test of timelessness… if that makes sense.
“For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son.”
Are you or have you been a parent of a small child? Or at least have taken care of one for a friend or family member, or even as a job as a babysitter? Take a look at that child and then take a look at former President Barack Obama, or just about any Democrat in Congress or that holds public office. You’ll see that there isn’t much difference between them other than that your child is far cuter and that the Democrat holds POWER. Because that is what a Democrat in office really is: a child with authoritative power.
That last statement should be painfully obvious with the way the Democrats and even the news media have been acting since Trump won the election. Democrats blaming Russia for Trump’s win is exactly like a child crying and blaming someone else for their loss. Representative John Lewis claiming that Trump’s election win is illegitimate is like a child throwing a tantrum for his favorite sports team losing a championship game after a last-second score by the other team. ‘It’s not fair!’ is all I hear when one of these children say Trump won illegitimately.
And it’s not just elected Democrats who are children. It’s also anyone in Hollywood who wanted to stop Trump from becoming president, Rosie O’Donnell being the biggest child of them all, calling on Trump to be arrested. With her saying: ‘I fully support imposing martial law delaying the inauguration until Trump is “cleared” of all charges’. The funny thing is that she probably doesn’t even know what martial law means. By the way, it means ‘the law temporarily imposed upon an area by state or national military forces when civil authority has broken down or during wartime military operations.’ So unless she could’ve convinced the U.S. military to attempt a coup d’état, martial law just wasn’t going to be imposed.
And let’s not forget the people that are actually the closest to being children in age: university student millennials. Now, it’s not all of the college students that are being childish. But there are some very strange cases of childishness going on in colleges. I mean, soon after Trump was elected president, college campuses actually offered COLORING BOOKS and safe spaces for students that were ‘traumatized’ by the election results. They have even offered COUNSELING for people that are upset that Trump won. Some students have even pledged to CUT OFF their private parts if Trump actually builds the wall! They won’t go through with it, being the sissies that they are, but to proclaim to eliminate a part of your body because a president actually wants to do something about our illegal immigration problem? Seriously?
If you are a college student that attends classes with one of these morons, I suggest you do the following: 1) Go to any store that sells pacifiers. 2) Go back to the campus, find said student and offer the binky. 3) When they start crying and yelling at you, calling you a bigot bully and they start getting visibly flustered, offer the binky again. 4) Repeat step three until they storm off to one of their ‘safe spaces’. (Just in case it's not painfully obvious, I'm joking. That's bordering on or actual harassment. Don't actually do that.) Honestly, I’ve had the urge to go to my local college campus with boxes full of pacifiers and stuffed toys and a sign that read: “Upset Trump is president? Have a complementary binky and teddy bear.”
But all of this, the celebrities, elected officials and college students acting like oversized children, is the direct result of decades of Democrat rule. It’s not just for the last 8 years, though it’s been running amok because of that, but it’s for however long Democrats have had power over the schools that breed these Peter Pan-like children, over the news organizations and over Hollywood that has resulted in these people throwing temper tantrums for not getting their way for the first time in their lives.
This is what happens when God isn’t present in schools. Children grow up to be materialistic, selfish and greedy. Actually, grow up is the wrong term. How about ‘get bigger and taller’? Because we know, from reading this and from seeing what’s happening on social media, that these people don’t grow up. But back to my previous point. This is what happens when God isn’t in the schools. None of these people know God on a personal level. None of them believe in Him as the Creator and Master of the universe. They don’t have God in their lives and as a result have fallen deeper into their sins. And they’re PROUD of it! I could go on and on, but I don’t wish to waste your time on a useless rant.
They live without the Father and fail to grow up.
1 Peter 2:2:
‘Like newborn infants, long for the spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation…’
