Well, somebody taught the young ones this. I’m not sure if it was the “parents,” the Leftist groomers who infiltrated America’s schools, or just the “influencers” on social media. But, somebody taught the younger end of Millennials and all of Gen Z that “I’m offended” are magic words that they can scream to get them anything that they want.
Sadly, nobody has yet taught most of them that magic words are just words. Or that a fist, boot, or weapon to your mouth will shut them up right quick more often than not. 😉
Yeah, by the bulk of society’s estimates and feelings, I’m old. Hence, this is funnier to me than to many others… because parents actually said this to us in my day. Not mine, mind you, but a lot of them.
Between Critical Race Theory (CRT), the rewriting of history, pro-Chinese propaganda, “teaching” to the lowest common denominator, and the sexual predators, i.e., #Groomers, that have infiltrated our education system, there’s a lot of sickness in our schools. Parents need to be aware of the symptoms.
Mr. Whitlock has the right of it, perhaps a deeper and broader right of it than he intended. While it’s fairly obvious that he was speaking to the “Black Community” and a few other group that intersect with them, his words and assertion is true across the breadth of the Civilized World. Villages – especially angry, hate-filled villages of failures – can’t raise stable children with the hope of a decent life. It takes parents – IMHO at least two of them and of both genders – who make the commitment to instilling, both by word and deed, ethics and morality into those children. Anything else, and pretty much everything that Liberals, Progressives, and their minority sharecroppers keep demanding and promulgating, leads to children growing up confused, angry, and dealing with long-term effects of a lifetime of systemic abuse.
In point of sad fact, the village is more and more often these days set to destroy a child’s wellbeing and future, instead of raising said child to be healthy, happy, and a good citizen. It takes parents to protect the children from the village, its ways, and what the villages want to turn the child into.
If you’re both wise and committed to raising children who will think for themselves and not be afraid about making their choices in life, raise them to think for themselves. Raise them to refuse the false limits of the choices what passes for teachers these days will always present them. 😉
Remember, the most basic and pernicious form of what passes for our school system’s indoctrination of America’s youth is their deliberate miseducation of choices. They always present a limited set of “correct” answers, and they always expect and demand that students abide by these limitations.
Teach your children, especially your sons, to reject this tyranny and to choose what and/or what set of answers are right for them.
