One of my pet peeves — and I have many — is the way the media quietly brainwashes children. From kid’s shows and cartoons, to the news broadcasts he sees with us, my (almost) twelve year old son gets a lot of bogus information that is one-sided and wrong. I have had to correct him on several occasions when he has uttered an opinion that sounds remarkably like leftist “new speak” he heard on television. I don’t just correct him, though. I explain why what he is saying is wrong and give him examples from the real world. Being the bright boy that he is, he always goes away with a better understanding of the issue and a warning from me to beware the leftist/anti-capitalist BS he sees on television.
It helps, of course, that the parents have enough information to properly teach their children in a way consistent with the core conservative values of the United States and whatever religious affiliation they have. Parents are the front line in creating good citizens with good morals and a clear sense of decency. Knowing right from wrong is not as easy to teach as one thinks.
Having said all that, I present you with an image my friend Jeff sent me that is from the new CBS Television show KidNation. The show puts 40 kids in situations without adult supervision. (The guy who developed this show has issues, folks.) The bio of one of the kids appears below:
The question I have is: what the hell kind of home life did this poor child have so that at the age of 11 — my son’s age — he is already spewing communist propaganda? This breaks my fucking heart.
One more reason we will be glad when fidel is “officially” dead.
P.S., my son sports a Marine Corps buzzcut.

UPDATE: Our constant reader Scott sends me this link from Variety. Hope the show is canceled.
