Fox News Promoting Children’s Book Teaching Kids Right to Self Defense
Forget Sesame Street and everyone trying to get along. Fox News now finds it important to make sure that children know that they can stand their ground and defend themselves, that they have a “right to self-defense”?
Yes, apparently this is now a thing and it is actually very scary to think about little kids thinking about how to defend themselves, and what they might well be told by their parents, as this book is being read.
There is no indication as to the woman’s name or even whether she is the author, just a good catch while watching Fox. The woman specifically mentions the Rittenhouse verdict making it that much more important that kids understand their rights, perhaps in case they serve on juries or find themselves with someone else’s paws (nice racist reference there?) on their cannons? The entire thing is utterly bizarre and practically make Twitter collectively throw up.
(Ed note: It’s Dana Loesch, g*n nut and former spokeswoman for the NRA and yes, she’s the author of the book.)

Twitter was disgusted as well and had some thoughts:
Republicans on teaching children about the 14th Amendment: indoctrination.
Republicans on teaching children about the 2nd Amendment: 👍 https://t.co/FawNX2UMaQ

Suddenly all of the demonization of things like Sesame Street and Dr. Seuss makes sense. They have to make sure to radicalize their base against standard children’s edutainment in order to sell them new MAGA products.

Can’t wait until the first story hits about a kid “defending” themself from mommy or daddy telling them they couldn’t have a cookie before dinner…

So teaching kids about guns is cool but teaching them the truth about slavery, MLK and out history of racism is just too much trauma 🙄
