Democrats Now Using Children To Push Their Agenda
Once more we have witnessed that the left has no scruples when it comes to using children to try to push their agenda. They try to sell this political protest they are staging saying we should not stand in the way of these children having a voice, but as any adult knows, these children are not old enough to make fundamental decisions, if they were they would be allowed to vote and purchase guns, yet we are now told they are responsible enough to try to force political change? Shame on the left.
I send my child to school to learn about math, not political discord. I sent him to learn about history, not how to protest. We all know the tune, they present this as if this is spontaneous with the kids, it is not, it is pushed by the teachers, paid for by the way with our tax money, and that is not acceptable to me. These children are being used by unscrupulous leaders to try to push an agenda, nothing more.
If you dare to say a word about this you get attacked for daring to speak out against the kids, typical tactic, try to shame to shut down any dissent, not going to work here, I am speaking out against them, not because they should have no voice, rather these are the same ones that think social networks is the way to communicate, are caught up on their childish games, ask them who the founding fathers were, who is the Vice President, what was the constitutional convention, they look at you with a blank face, yet we are told they should have a voice in the political realm? If this is the case then why aren’t they allowed to vote? The reason is simple, they are children, they are not yet capable of thinking in a way an adult can.
What is more, I have to ask, what would these same people react like if teachers pulled these kids out of school to march for life; or maybe kids marching for changing the first amendment, demand that we be able to put nativity sets up in every city hall and the ten commandments in front of every court? Or worse, march saying that biology is being ignored, there are only two genders? We all know the outrage over such a thing would know no bounds. Shame on the liberals, as I said, they are just using these kids to push an ideology, the same way the fascist and Hitler did so many years ago to shame his people into doing his bidding.
This to me just lost any moral authority over what they were trying to push, laws are not supposed to be put in place in moments of passion, nor should rights ever be stripped in an emotional state, they need to be reflected upon and put in place without emotions, for the law should never be created with such a response, otherwise in the name of feelings you can find rights that we take for granted ripped away from us. The left is trying to rush with emotion, using children to try to ram through something that should never be done this way, shame on all of them.
I feel terrible for these kids, I understand the anguish they feel, have lost loved ones, know the depths of despair, understand it even now as I watch the love of my life wither and pass in front of me, but you know what, this is not the time to make life-changing decisions, we have to heal then act, not act then heal, that is the way mistakes have been made over and over throughout history. This is why long, long ago a very wise man said, “
A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
A time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
A time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak.
We in our rush for gratification have forgotten, in all of life, there is a time for everything, the tricky part is figuring out what time it is. It is never a time to act when it is a time to mourn, nor is it a time for anger when it is time to cry, you should not laugh when you should be quiet, and you should be passing laws that affect all when you should be doing all the above first.
We need first to heal, give these kids time to heal, then when the pain has passed, the emotion and outrage are gone, then we need to sit down in a calm and logical manner figure out how to fix this. But I will say what I have said before, taking some guns is never the answers, if someone is determined to do this do you think they care anything of the law or that a school is a weapons-free zone? Of course not, you wish to fix this you harden the site, make it so the killer would know they aren’t walking into an area where no one can shoot back. What you have now is not putting into effect anything that would work. Instead, it is about optics, that is never how things should be done.
