Our Children Learn What We Teach Them

Arizona State University designated parts of its campus to be “multicultural locations”, where White students are not welcome.  A September 24, 2021 online video shows a political activist harassing two White students who were studying in a “multicultural location”, complaining “This White man thinks he can take up our space”.  The university declared the incident to be a mere disagreement among students.  United States Senator Kyrsten Sinema, who teaches at Arizona State University, said nothing.

*** An October 3, 2021 online video shows political activists harassing Senator Sinema because they disagree with Senator Sinema’s position on two pending spending bills.  The political activists followed Senator Sinema into the ladies room, shouted at her, video-recorded her as she entered a bathroom stall, waited for her to finish and leave the bathroom stall, and video-recorded her leaving the bathroom stall and washing her hands. Joe Biden told our children the incident was no big deal: “it happens to everybody … it’s part of the process”.

To a round of laughter and applause from Hollywood’s finest, Robert De Niro shouted “Fuck Trump” at the 2018 televised Tony Awards show.

*** Every week in the 2021-2022 football season, across our nation, college football stadiums are filled with shouts of “Fuck Joe Biden”.

In June 2018, Congresswoman Maxine Waters shouted to a crowd, telling them how to express their political opinions: “If you see anybody from that Cabinet [President Donald J. Trump’s Cabinet] in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere”.

*** In 2020, countless numbers of people expressed their political opinions by shooting people, throwing molotov cocktails at people, punching passersby from behind, burning courthouses and police stations, and looting stores.

In 2008, Barak Obama told our children “I have said repeatedly that I intend to close Guantanamo.  I will follow through on that.  I’ve said repeatedly that America doesn’t torture, and I’m gonna make sure that we don’t torture.  Those are part and parcel of an effort to regain America’s moral stature in the world.”

*** In 2021, what did our children think when Barak Obama told them that his birthday party guests and his family are “sophisticated” (not “deplorables” or racists), so they don’t have to obey the CDC pronouncements that kept our children’s schools closed for an entire year?

We teach our children by our actions, not by our words.  Our children learn what we teach them.
