The Future the Left Has in Mind for My Child Makes Me Despise Leftism Even More

Have you seen the video of a young woman screaming at a camera as she points toward the DNC? As she points behind her, she screeches about the Democrat Party's unwillingness to stop Israel from destroying Hamas despite the party claiming itself to be a party of peace. 

How she got to that conclusion after the Democrat Party sent billions of taxpayer dollars — likely with her enthusiastic approval — to Ukraine to fight Russia, I'll never understand, but there she was regardless, outraged and combative. 

As I've covered on multiple occasions, even if the Democrats did call for a ceasefire against Hamas, Israel wouldn't be able to accommodate the demand. They're against a wall. Hamas wants to destroy Israel. They brutally killed over a thousand men, women, and children on October 7, and Israel cannot give Hamas another chance to do that by pulling back now.

Let's call a spade a spade here. This woman is a very useful idiot, and there were a whole lot of them out front of the DNC that night. There are even more than that scattered all around America. These are youthful idiots being controlled and manipulated by older idiots, all of whom bought into the idea that America is evil and deserving of nothing but collapse. 

And this pattern of idiots making idiots will continue for the foreseeable future unless somehow a miracle arrives to set society back into a culture of wisdom, intelligence, and respect. Calling obvious terrorists "freedom fighters" won't stop, believing gender is something that can be changed at a moment's notice will continue, and corrupt elected officials will push destructive authoritarianism for as long as there's an avenue for it. 

And this worries me, not just as a person who loves his country and wants to see it prosper, but in a much larger way, as a father who loves his son and wants him to have the best chance for survival. 

My son turned one just a few days ago, and I'll have him under my protective umbrella for at least a handful of years more, but as a culture critic and socio-political commentator, I see the elements coming for my son even now. He doesn't know it yet, but there's a war for his loyalty already underway, and there are forces attempting to undermine his father's authority and teaching. His father wants him to be an individualist, a man of God, wise, and capable of knowing truth and reality when he sees it and lies when they're fed to him. 

They want him to be just like that useful idiot in the video above, and the idea that they could somehow, through some underhanded, devious means, turn him into one of those idiots keeps me up at night. God willing, I'll succeed in giving him the tools necessary to resist that seduction. 

But let's say I do succeed. My fight will, on some level, become my son's fight, and for that, I can't forgive the left. He shouldn't have to fight this fight. Hell, I shouldn't have to. None of us should, but the nature of authoritarianism, pseudo-moralism, and outright evil is that they should constantly force themselves on everyone else. It's infuriating that my son will have to deal with this. 

Megyn Kelly has the same point of anger, and she voiced it herself quite well: 

To the parents of all of these losers suddenly persuaded by the deranged musings of the man who murdered 3k American innocents: you failed. You were likely boozing, marching for some L-wing cause and/or simply ignoring your kids. You failed to teach wrong from right, a proper moral code, a love of country and perspective on America’s role in the world. Bc you failed, my kids and others are going to have to grow up battling these assholes for the future of the United States. I have every confidence they can do it, but I resent and judge you for making it necessary as opposed to fostering a life in which they can focus solely on growth, joy, love, family, hard work and creation. No point getting bogged down in it however, trust me when I tell you that the majority of Americans - this generation and the next - will fight to defeat the pernicious lunacy you’ve unleashed. And we will win.

I hate that my son has to deal with this nonsense. While evil always needs to be fought, the fact that he'll have to spend an inordinate amount of time fighting off intrusions into his own psyche as well as having to navigate around the unnecessary complications the left will thrust on society is unforgivable.
