Children Of The Fox

Quite often, I am reminded that people like Michelle Malkin, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, and even Glenn Beck are parents. There's a very odd and troublesome feeling that creeps into me when I think about that and when I hear Beck say something like this:



The letter that Beck highlighted is right in many respects. It shows the anger, and rightfully so, of how many people feel in this country. They feel like they can't afford college, a home, even a car. And when it comes to healthcare, the 20-somethings of our nation are slowly realizing that they aren't going to be able to do many things that they want because of the older generation.

Now this isn't to say that everyone over 40 or 50 have coordinated an effort to wreck the future of the younger generations, but you really can't hold it against someone that is 18, 24, or even 30 when they expresss their passions, their feelings, towards an issue like healthcare reform. But, that is Becks schtick and we shouldn't be suprised when he claims that younger kids are potential killers.

When I hear someone like Beck drooling and raving about parenting, about how participation ribbons during competition is going to cause your child to snap and take out a 7/11 with an AK-47, of how he knows more about parenting than anyone else, I am very concerned with the mental and physical well-being of the children that have to live with such insanity.

When I think about the fact that there is a child that has to sit at home and know, perhaps even fear, that at some point this man on the TV is going to come home and confront them because they didn't get an A on their spelling test, that they accidentally broke one of mommy's favorite dishes, that they aren't living up to the ideals of conservativism, I am honestly afraid for that child.

To hear Glenn Beck talk about the "me generation", about how people are selfish, one has to wonder just how much projection is really going on. When have you ever heard a conservative talk about anything but "me"? Sure, they love to use the abstract "us", the editorial "we". When have you ever really seen a conservative do or say anything that actually helps those around them? When have you ever seen them do or say anything that isn't about self-aggrandizement?

I really thought about calling the Department of Children and family services on my cousin due to her insistence on forcing her kids to listen to Rush Limbaugh.
