Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.
The focus this time: Putting the “loco” in “In Loco Parentis”
First, a little mood music:
Those who believe that the children are for Leviathan (or at least the enlightened synapses/persons thereof) to raise have to get the kids early before the parents can have too much influence…
“Parents don’t usually send their kids to kindergarten telling them not to believe anything their teacher tells them. Nor are parents aware of every message conveyed to their children in school. Occasionally, yes, but all would be impossible unless they attended school with their child.
“Even if parents were to attend occasional classes, the propaganda would be difficult to notice. That’s how indoctrination into left-wing ideology works – like Chinese water torture, one drop at a time.
“This slow brainwashing was on display in Iowa this week when students from one high school apologized to another for wearing red, white and blue to a basketball game. Yes, you read that right. They apologized for wearing the colors of the American flag to a game.
“Why would students from Valley High School need a mea culpa for a display of patriotism they routinely make throughout the year? Because at this particular game, they were playing Des Moines North High School, and North has some players who ‘are from refugee families.'”
And just what will the new neuron’s of Leviathan do with the kids? Make ’em transgender, of course!
“Angry parents stampeded a California charter school board meeting Monday after a teacher read her kindergarten class picture books about transgenderism to affirm a gender dysphoric classmate. During the class, parents say, the gender dysphoric boy also switched clothes to look more like a girl in a ‘gender reveal.’
“Parents were not notified beforehand of the discussion or the classmate’s psychological condition, and learned about it when their confused kindergarteners arrived home from school that day.
“‘The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or a girl,’ Karen England of the Capitol Resource Institute told CBS News.
“‘My daughter came home crying and shaking so afraid she could turn into a boy,’ a parent said at the public meeting.”
If they can’t “trans” children, they could always up and kill ’em.
“Writing in the British Medical Journal, [medical student George Gillett] wants the laws further tightened to keep parents from daring to defy doctors by establishing rules to determine when parental autonomy will be suspended based on their supposed lack of “capacity”:
“‘However, what a capacity-based assessment of parental autonomy would do is introduce some consistency in the law, and provide a far more sophisticated and ethically justified approach than the one we currently have.
“‘It would be honest with parents about when they have a right to make decisions on behalf of their children and when they do not, rather than offering parents the façade of parental autonomy before selectively over-ruling the decisions doctors disagree with…'”
Silly parents, how dare you even want to keep “your” child…
