Reader Opinion: I'm sorry for you

To all you children who attended "gun protests," I say sincerely, "I feel sorry for you." You've been used by the very adults that were--are--responsible for your intellectual growth. You didn't get any of that. You've been hoodwinked, and I feel...

To all you children who attended "gun protests," I say sincerely, "I feel sorry for you."

You've been used by the very adults that were-are-responsible for your intellectual growth.

You didn't get any of that. You've been hoodwinked, and I feel sorry for you.

You've been lied to that scores don't matter, that facts don't matter, that America doesn't matter.

You have been stroked, groomed and coddled to believe through indoctrination that you are wiser than your elders and that their world must be rejected and overturned because of your false and unearned gift of superiority. You have been set up so as to remain helpless, needy children for the rest of your lives, always seeking and needing the approval of what configured you: "The Cause."

You have become a generation of what Joseph Stalin called "useful idiots," whose only role was to advance the communist cause. The same went for Mao's Red Guard children, who beat their parents with sticks for lacking ideological purity. The children themselves mattered not a whit to "The Cause." Neither will you.

Today, children simply haven't been allowed (or instructed on how) to critically think this through on their own.

How well would your beloved teachers and administrators support you if you had chosen to fight against murderous abortions instead of pre-programmed gun hatred?

Or to stop the murders of Christians in the Middle East?

Think about it, if you are able to think for yourself.

I feel sorry for you if you cannot wander comfortably into independent thinking, safe spaces be damned.
