Why Raise a Child to Think

When it's so much easier to raise them to hate. I realize that since all the little children in my life are either going into high school or college I don't have much day-to-day interaction with contemporary children's literature. So maybe it was that, or possibly just good luck, that I did not come across these books until just recently.

A woman named DeBrecht has a book out there called Help Mom! There are Liberals Under My Bed. What is it about, you ask, well, here's a synopsis: This full-color illustrated book is a fun way for parents to teach young children the valuable lessons of conservatism. Written in simple text, readers can follow along with Tommy and Lou as they open a lemonade stand to earn money for a swing set. But when liberals start demanding that Tommy and Lou pay half their money in taxes, take down their picture of Jesus, and serve broccoli with every glass of lemonade, the young brothers experience the downside to living in Liberaland.

The book is for kids aged 4-8. The writer's oeuvre apparently also include Help! Mom! Hollywood's in My Hamper! (Janie and Sam were happy just being kids -- that is, until celebrities started popping out of their hamper to tell them how to behave and to sell them expensive clothes. With Hollywood and its friends in the liberal media declaring war on traditional values, what's a concerned parent to do?) and Help! Mom! The 9th Circuit Nabbed the Nativity! - which is pretty self explanatory. No doubt Help! Mom! The Two Men Who Live Together Downtown Want to Adopt Me! and Help! Mom! the Liberals are Hiding Osama Bin Laden in My Closet! are on their way soon. Personally, I look forward to Help! Mom! Bush is Wiretapping My Teddy Bear, but I don't suppose it's on the list.

What this reminds me of more than anything is the old Hamas Mickey Mouse that urged kids to fight the oppressive Zionist state until I think he was killed by Zionists and was replaced by another character equally eager to teach kids to hate. So I want to share a few sites & groups that strive to combat those kinds of programs.

MATCKH (Mothers Against Teaching Children to Kill and Hate) is primarily focused on projects like Hamas' Mickey Mouse. The Southern Law Poverty Center has a project called Tolerance.org. The group defines itself as "a principal online destination for people interested in dismantling bigotry and creating, in hate's stead, communities that value diversity."

I'm surprised that they go to so much trouble to instill hate in their children, when they could do it more easily with a daily hour of Faux Noise.

Do these parents make their babies watch Ann Coulter videos & listen to Rush instead of nursery rhymes?
