Police Post Disturbing Video of Toddler Being Encouraged to Swear | Fox News Insider

A police organization posted a disturbing video of what it describes as “the continuation of the thug cycle.” In the video, a toddler’s uncle and two other adults encourage the three-year-old to say vile things and hold up his middle finger. Megyn Kelly described the awful video, saying, “It’s the same as watching them pick him up and beat him physically.”

This was making waves all over the right-side talker circuit yesterday. I remained unshocked, given that I live in a ghetto, and little kids who talk like this all the time are merely part of the background soundscape.

But of course exposing the reality is considered to be “racist” in some circles:

Now, the police officers who posted the video are getting pushback for putting it online. The association, which is different from the department, claim they had an obligation to share the video to educate people about the cycle of violence and thuggery that some children find themselves trapped in. Michael Skolnik, political director to Russell Simmons, said tonight on The Kelly File that the police have no right to tell people how to raise their children.

A significant part of the ethnic community in America is in big institutional and generational trouble.  Our systems seemed designed to perpetuate that trouble.  This is just a small, everyday example of the sort of “values” that are implicity or explicity being passed on from one generation to the next – with no end in sight, as things now stand.

But, you know, shut up.  We’re not supposed to notice.  Because that would be racist.

Let me add one more thing:  The notion that it’s nobody’s business how someone raises their kids is new on the American scene, and intensely debilitating.  There was a time when decency and sanity were reinforced by social pressure, both disapproval and approval.  And even as a libertarian, I’m fine with that.  It takes a healthy culture to raise healthy kids.  And we haven’t had either for decades now, and it shows, no matter how much people try to cover it up.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. A former good friend of mine was a chief of police. Over dinner one night, he told me about how he was in uniform, walking through a Target store, and a 3 or 4 year old boy stood up in his grocery cart, pointed, and yelled “Five-O!”, as a warning — same as saying “Look out, cop coming!”.

    Mamma promptly smacked him and said “Not here!”

    A certain demographic is trained young to the cultural norms. The fact that those cultural norms are barbaric, uncivilized, and inimical to a free people cannot be addressed until we can ignore those who whine “racist!” and fix the culture.

    I fear the fix is to starve it out; let them live the way they choose, but on their own dime, not ours.

    • They can’t survive without our dime. They have no skills and no ability to acquire any that would be useful to the society at large.

      Legalize drugs and withdraw welfare, and most of them would starve to death for lack of income. That’s the bottom line. In the end we’d have most of them in jail for various petty crimes, and be supporting them that way.

  2. They can’t survive without our dime.

    Some would learn, and figure out how to live in civilized society.

    Some would literally starve. Or learn the old meaning of charity, which does not mean no-strings-attached entitlements.

    In the event of a major societal collapse, Carrington event, or other disruption, we may actually live to see this. What happens if the government is suddenly unable to continue providing welfare?

    It won’t be pretty.
