Hey, Leftists, Leave Them Kids Alone

“Give us the child for eight years, and it will be a Bolshevik forever.” — Vladimir Lenin

Perhaps y’all recognize the title of this missive from the Pink Floyd song, “Another Brick in the Wall.” The word they used in the song was “teacher,” but I prefer to use a very appropriate reference for today, “leftists.” We all know that the teachers’ unions here in the United States, NEA/AFT, are truly indicative of the leftist moniker, with AFT headed by the notorious Randi Weingarten. The aforementioned quote is from a leading leftist, socialist/Marxist figure, Vladimir Lenin, and is also reflective of the mentality of leftists in America today. Consider the crusade of the left to begin their systemic cultural Marxist indoctrination of our children as early as kindergarten.

We have recently been entertained by the triumvirate of incompetence, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Karine Jean-Pierre, who informed us that our children are not our children while explicitly stating that they belong to, well, “all of us.” It was the seemingly unscrupulous Terry McAuliffe who openly asserted, during the Virginia gubernatorial debate, that parents have no right to decide what their children are being taught. Just recently, the leftist Southern Poverty Legal Center (SPLC) decreed that a number of parental rights groups be designated as hate groups. We all know that leftist Attorney General, Merrick Garland, designated parents as “domestic terrorists.”

Adolf Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung, and Fidel Castro — all the well-known leftist maniacs we have known and continue to witness — have always made targeting our children one of their objectives, mantra, and priorities. As the wise King Solomon of Israel once stated in Ecclesiastes, “There is nothing new under the sun.” So, here we are today, in America of all places, and the leftists are targeting our children, not just for socialist indoctrination, but for the most perverse, deranged, and insidious reasons: sexual exploitation.

Though this emanates from the Democrats, there are those in the Republican Party who are all in for the sexualization of our children and who believe that we should not speak of nor engage in this “culture war.” To those members of the “Republican Party,” I call you cowards and enablers and ask that you just stay out of the way as we fight for our children. It appears that the modern-day acolytes of the Baal god Moloch are busy with the intended goal of killing our children in the womb, up to birth, and even after birth and now focused on leading them to mutilate their little bodies and prescribing them dangerous physiological altering drugs, hormonal therapies, and puberty blockers.

As well, leftists, and other enablers, are offering up our children to sick, deranged perversions such as men dressed as women openly displaying their genitals. Those parents who submit their children to these acts are the ones who should lose custody, not parents protecting their children from leftist sexual abuse and exploitation, as a recent law in the state of Washington does or proposed legislation in California. I am aware of two parents who have allowed their 15-year-old daughter to rename herself and express that she is now a boy. Not just that, these parents have allowed this 15-year-old daughter to travel alone to Europe with a 21-year-old lesbian, supposedly their daughter’s girlfriend. Last time I checked, that was a felony crime for an adult to engage in sexual activity with a minor.

Then again, the leftists no longer refer to such people as pedophiles; they are now MAPS (minor-attracted persons).

But what happens when it is not just the responsible and accountable parents who are fighting back? What happens when it is the children who push back against the leftists?

The story of Marshall Simonds Middle School in Burlington, Massachusetts, is just encouraging, actually phenomenal. It appears that the school wanted the students to honor pride month on June 2nd by wearing rainbow clothing. It seems that there were some kids who didn’t conform and instead wore patriotic colors and chanted, “My pronouns are USA,” and destroyed pride flags. Boom!

When I was a little boy, my grandpa nicknamed me “Mule” because I was stubborn. Thank God we still have righteously stubborn kids in America. There is no better place for the birth of new Sons and Daughters of Liberty than in Massachusetts.

This pushback did not endear these brave students to the leftists who demanded subjugation, subservience, and surrender. Some parents, teachers, and school administrators went apoplectic. How dare these little ones disallow their progressive socialist leftist indoctrination! Nancy Bonaserra (which means “good evening” in Italian) is the co-chair of the Burlington Equity Coalition. Her coalition is calling for consequences for these students and urging for more emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Parents of LGBTQ kids want a “teachable moment,” in other words, forced indoctrination. One school board member, Michael Espejo, said that “a bad light has been cast over our town.”

Let’s imagine a different scenario: what if the school had wanted students to participate in a Flag Day ceremony honoring America and wanted them to wear patriotic clothing? Now, what if some students had come to school and wore rainbow flags, chanted “Down with the USA,” and tore down American flags? Yeah, they would be hailed on every doggone leftist media outlet as heroic and probably invited to the White House as well as being given keys to the city.

Hey, leftists, leave the kids alone; I find it unconscionable that the left believes that we are just supposed to lie down and take their absurdities and perversions with no opposition. Then again, the leftists want no opposition. This is the reason they are doing everything possible to make Donald Trump an example to us all.

Americans, real Americans, want to Live Free, and we will not surrender our children and their freedom, their right to freedom of speech and expression.

No one will ever say it better than President Ronald Reagan:

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States, where men were free.”

I will never relent and always fight for freedom for my two daughters, Aubrey and Austen, and for my grandson, Jaxton Bernard, and my future grandchildren. I will never tell them what America was once like. I will tell them of the great culture war when we told the leftists to leave the kids alone and kicked them in the ass! I hope you will enjoy telling the same story to your grandkids.

Steadfast and Loyal.
