With respect to the two words “general welfare,” I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.
Sure, this is sarcastic humor, but it also sadly a likely alteration of our school children’s curricula. Admittedly, however, it’s highly unlikely that pole dancing will be included as a course in 2023. Now, by 2030, all bets are off unless Americans actually do something to protect our children from the real threats they face in what should be our schools.
And no, this part isn’t bullshit. While pole dancing isn’t currently in the Olympics – Break Dancing, however, is as of the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics – a number of people have and are working on getting in there. So, it’s perfectly natural for it to hit colleges and then high schools. 🙄
Normal, right-thinking adults don’t try to introduce sex, sexuality, or sexual identification to young children. Normal, right-thinking adults know that there’s little no age-appropriate “sexual education” for children that young. On the other hand, perverts and predators do exactly that if given the chance to do so. So do sociopolitically motivated sorts who want to create a world more friendly to sexual deviancy and assault, and they’re teaching our kids right now.
This Is Sick And It’s Not OK
And this whole, growing phenomenon of drag queens having a story hours and teaching session with little kids? That’s sick. That’s not in any way OK! Not when the purpose is to introduce sex and sexual identity to very young children. And especially not when drag queens are the most extreme and poorest – quite often false – examples of the trans.
But, of course, the Left – though apparently and, if so, logically, not the queers therein – are all for it and want this sort of thing expanded upon and entrenched in our schools and. failing that, libraries.
The real question, however, before American adults, most especially but not only parents, is what are we going to do about this. What are we going to do to protect the children of our communities from sexual predators and their enablers, but deliberate and merely misguided or uncaring?
To paraphrase Hillary and to turn her words against her sort, if it takes a village to raise a child, then it most certainly takes a village to defend them.
Yeah, I agree with Rep. Lauren Boebert (R CO-3). President Trump may be crass and may have, at some times in his past, have made some fairly crude sexual comments, but he’s never been called “Creepy Uncle Donald” or “Donald ‘Bad Hands’ Trump.” So yeah, I too miss those apparently halcyon days when the man installed in the White House didn’t single out six-year-olds and compliment their legs while giving speeches.
It truly seems that Creepy Uncle Joe is living down to his various nicknames, especially when it comes to rapists and pedophiles – at least non-White ones who’ve entered America illegally, often specifically for the heinous purpose of committing various sexual crimes.
Yes, Biden has eradicated ICE’s Operation Talon, which was focused on deporting convicted sex offenders illegally in the United States.
Sure, Operation Talon dealt with 19,752 illegal aliens with criminal convictions for whom the most serious prior conviction was a conviction for a sex-related offense over the course of its almost four years of operation. But, insofar as Biden and his handlers are concerned, this is a two-fold problem: One, that’s 19,752 non-White illegals who they can’t grant amnesty and a “path to citizenship” and the Democrats’ voter rolls to; and two, it was yet another successful, needed, and wanted program enacted by President Trump. And, those are the actual reasons for Biden ending Operation Talon.
And sure. 18 State’s Attorney Generals have petitioned to have Operation Talon reinstated. But they’re AGs for Republican-dominated states, so we all know that they’ll be ignored, largely because those states are on the hit list for the Dems and at least some portion of Biden’s act was meant to harm them.
And then, of course, I’m fairly sure that “Bad Hands” Biden himself is concerned about the prosecution and removal of sexual predators. 😉
Of course, given much their rhetoric, this essentially indicates that protecting children from pedophiles and general sexual exploitation isn’t a Left-Wing thing anymore. But then, that’s not that much of a surprise, given their views on sexual orientation and the fact that Americans very much hate pedophiles.
Or maybe it’s Right-Wing Only now because of President Trump, or rather. the Left’s insane hatred for him and those who voted him into office.
Yeah, it’s a simple, sad fact that, while it’s possible that the Left is still against the sexual exploitation of children, it’s not their priority and, given the choice between protecting kids and railing against President Trump, his administration, and the 10s of millions of his supporters, the kids lose.
The truly sickening part is that many, but by no means all, on the Left will likely turn to supporting pedophilia just because we’re against it and they don’t want to agree with us on anything.
On “Cuties” Itself
I can’t personally judge the film since I haven’t seen it and have no intention of doing so. Frankly, a movie about an 11-year-old French-Senegalese girl rather poorly navigating the onset of puberty as part of a strict Muslim household on the outskirts of Paris has little to nothing for me to identify with or have interest in. And, beyond that, some of it would sicken me.
What I can directly speak to is Netflix’s poster/trailer for “Cuties” – which I’m neither posting nor linking to – being the primary source for triggering the widespread backlash against the film. It really made the film look like “spank bank” material for pedophiles.
Not one of Netflix’s finer marketing moments and something that makes it so that they deserve whatever negative consequences that get since stupid should be painful since pain is the only way to teach the stupid.
DISCLOSURE: Years ago I worked with a Children’s Advocacy/Protection organization that partnered with the FBI and Interpol. I actually put my “InfoSec” skills to use directly hunting down pedophiles online, gathering evidence, and turning them over to the authorities for prosecution.
That was a couple of very hard years which, after a lot of what I saw, seriously colored my view of anything even close to child pornography.
