If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today.
The most fundamental and lasting lessons a child learns are those which were never deliberately taught them or added to a curriculum. That’s why teaching weakness is such a grave sin against them and our nation.
And that’s what our public school systems are doing, whether they intend to do so or not. While the pic shown above is more than a little “anvilicious,” and I certainly don’t advocate keeping schools open when it’s actually dangerous to try to reach them, it does show the degeneration of the system into cowardice and weakness.
What the children actually learn is that any form of hardship and any form of risk is firm ground for not trying. They learn to expect things to be easy and to not attempt that which is hard or uncomfortable. They learn to be weak.
Why do you think the Millennials have turned out so bad?
Thanks to Netflix’s decision to stream Maïmouna Doucouré’s “touching,” “explorative,” and “feminist” work, “Cuties,” protecting children from pedophiles and general sexual exploitation has become a Right-Wing thing according to many Democrats and likely Democrats.
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.
With the CDC’s report that American fertility and reproductive rates have fallen to record-lows and, at a Total Fertility Rate (TFR) of 1.76 we’re dangerously below the 2.1 TFR needed to maintain population levels, this is potentially catastrophic for our nation’s and people’s future.
So, Gentlemen – especially my fellow White men – we need to get busy fulfilling our reproductive duties. Hence, this post goes beyond the appreciation of the female form and prurience – though, as we all know, prurience is no oddity in Reflections From A Murky Pond – and is meant as both inspiration and a call to action.
America needs babies! So, gentlemen, we need to get out there and make some… a lot of them. Do it for you country!
Modern Democrat politicians, responding to the expectations of their likely voters, bear more resemblance to drunken and drugged-up thugs on a bender than what used to be the norm for any political party. And they and the sorts who voted for them still decry our President for his “rude” behavior – that motherfucker!
Democrats Offended By President Trump’s Language (Click to Enlarge)
It’s honestly like the depraved and deranged sorts who tend to vote for Democrat candidates first lowered the bar for acceptability in a Dem candidate and then said the candidates had to be able to pass under that new bar in order to get their votes.
And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is a far greater disease and wrong than those politicians that they put into office. Individual politicians can be more easily dealt with. When this sort of plague has become endemic, people seeking to save the body of our nation must be willing to consider more drastic and comprehensive means of disease control.
Hogg’s Hypocrisy – Neither All People Nor All Rights Are Equal
David Hogg’s hypocrisy knows no bounds or, at least, he and his handlers in the MSM aren’t going to let those bounds stand in the way of either his agenda or his notoriety. He’s all in favor of curtailing and infringing upon Americans’ 2nd Amendment rights but is quite angry about he and his fellow students being forced to use clear backpacks on campus and to be required to wear student IDs.
Then again, hypocrisy might not be the most accurate description, even if Hogg is sincere in his beliefs and not just a cynical, manipulative sociopath seeking fame and fortune in a media career. After all, Liberals and Progressives have long held that neither all rights nor all people are in fact equal and deserving of equal protections.
