Welfare “queens”? Like the ones that get tax break for yachts and private planes? Those “queens?” The “agricultural” ones subsidized by tax payers as they buy up farm land or the ones who also take Tax breaks as “churches?” The Queens who monopolize food supplies and precede to keep the prices high with money gouging? The Queens who are given oil/gas/mineral rights without ever having to share enormous profits with the nation that they exploit? Oh—yeah—THOSE QUEENS. The Fuckers running the RNC and dedicated to overthrowing this democracy.

While they are particularly cruel to children, who they profess to love and protect (but only up to the nanosecond they're born) It's really only part of their overall contempt and hatred to anyone who doesn't fit their narrow shackles of what it means to be a human.

An Arizona state Senator recently compared people, again, to wild animals:

Thankfully, many GOP constituents are dying off from covid, as we speak.

They're also repealing child labor laws, and more kids are getting killed on the job as a result.

“They don’t even want to give those same students any sort of relief from crushing college debt when they become adults.”

Yeah, we need to reverse the draconian cuts that Reagan instituted for colleges and stop requiring loans the way we do. It’s awful and life limiting and wholly unnecessary in a very rich country!

To say nothing of the healthcare system mess. Medicare-Medicaid coverage for all would fix THAT mess and cost so much less. Blows my mind how hospitals can be begging for Medicaid to be expanded and still… nothing… in certain red states.

We also need universal sick time and universal paid time off. And a standardized and generous SNAP and unemployment system. The covid debacle made that more than obvious when the disparity was stark and red states cut off generous benefits so much sooner than blue ones despite the need being so obvious, deep, and being so unmet.

We need expanded and generous monthly child credit payments that are not at all based on whether or not the parents work, ffs, what an insane notion when parents might choose to have one stay home with a child, or they’re Disabled, or they’re grandparents. Hell, those payments may be the difference between starting or expanding a family and a rational choice to have an abortion. Pro life, amirite? Freedom to choose, amirite?

Everything else that you touched on is nothing but the truth.

Both parties have gone insane, just on different issues.

Democrats believe in open borders that destroy cities (says the mayor of NYC) and working class wages, that people can change their biological sex that destroys the rights of women to privacy and fair sports competition and encourage the sterilization of children as "gender affirming care". They encourage homelessness, crime, and endless deficits. They discriminate against Asians and poor whites seeking education. Their leadership consists of an addled old man and a vacuous, word salad spouting, DEI selected idiot.

Republicans deny the climate change that threatens humanity, denounce the vaccines that reduce deaths from disease, believe that this ( . ) is a 👶 which destroys women's futures, and support a sociopath for president.

A pox on both their houses.

Democrats do not believe in any of the things you have accused them of but unfortunately you got the Republican beliefs mostly accurate. For example, the deficit has been reduced by Biden while it was increased by the prior four Republican presidents.

Elizabeth: I am a lifelong Democrat. I know how they have changed from the JFK, LBJ, Scoop Jackson years. My description is totally accurate. Biden is too old or simply doesn’t understand the issues well enough to stand up to the radical left wing of our party.

“For too long liberals have collectively allowed ourselves to cling to the delusion that the right doesn’t really want to hurt kids.”

It’s completely bizarre that anyone would cling to that delusion. Not saying folks don’t, but it is nonetheless completely irrational to do so.

Nobody hates children as much as Republicans. For all the reasons you list in this article and more. There isn’t a single thing anyone could point to that is Republican have done that benefits children. In fact, it’s near the impossible to point to anything that they have done that hasn’t been designed to harm children.

With Republicans, the cruelty is the point. It’s the objective.

Who exactly clings to this delusion? Mr Willis too often mars outstanding work with unfounded generalizations about liberals. In my personal experience, which I guess is what we’re talking about, the liberals I know despise the right’s treatment of children. I know of no one who thinks that their hearts are in the right place.

DEEEEEEELUSIONAL. You wish to feed children drugs meant for pedophiles that render them sterile or (LITERALLY according to the psychopaths at WPATH IN THEIR OWN WORDS) unable to experience orgasm or sexual pleasure after you'd cheer them having their genitals mutilated.

This is the most gigantic pile of hypocritical dogshit I've ever had the displeasure of reading on this platform.

You people PAY him for this tripe?

Just. Wow. 😂

When you target children you are actually targeting the next generation of voters.

As trump said he loves the uneducated.

It’s because educated people can do critical thinking, have some media literacy and know civics, all of which don’t lead to voting for bad people and authoritarians.

There is also the lower life expectancy that results from childhood policies that include less nourishment for life. A shorter life means less money spent on social security, Medicare and services. Why not shorten other people’s lives? It’s not like they’ll be missed.

I believe that all attacks on public education in USA have been a decades long series of orchestrated , organized crime hits on public education. The commodity is our Children’s Minds. Social media distractions are only a tiny part of the activities. Erosion leads to destruction leads to capitalization of children’s education. I believe mass shootings are sophisticated organized hits on public education. 1-800-SKLHITS. They distract us with other MASS MURDERS. But it’s all about killing public education in the United States. Control the minds and you control everything. HE WHO DECIDES what goes into the mind has all the power. It is organized, foreign influenced, mafia funded WAR for children’s minds. They’re fckn-monetizing hits on children. Someone is getting paid. And all while being funded by US taxpayer bc they now NonProfit. Opening the $$$ vein on public expenditure in k-12 to capitalism sells the waking -hours access to our children’s minds. And we pay them to infiltrate. WOW. or, dig my relaxing tea kick in?

Disagreeing with child abuse and genital mutilation and sterilization and permanently altering the development of a child is demonizing the entire trans movement. That is your take. God you suck at everything you do. And yourvessays have the mental depth of a 5th grader.

Look, Oliver, not only are you an asshole but you are A MONSTER for supporting this 100% fake science of child affirmations and transitions. And a coward for going along with it for your social acceptance among scumbags doing the same.

Open your fucking eyes, alot of Europe has already hit the brakes on it because they are being honest with themselves.

They went too far too fast.

This destructive fad is not going to end well.

Every kid sold out by adults like you is likely to suffer a lifetime of physical pain and mutiple mental and emotional regrets and constant feelings of loss, unable to get back what was taken from them.

So this leads me here: And I take no pleasure of feeling this way about you or anyone else:

But every adult that supports this insanity is A MONSTER. And I want you to suffer like most of these kids will suffer for the rest of their lives.

What you are doing is pure evil. And there is no redemption for you and you ilk.

I hate saying and feeling this.

You are Pure fucking Evil, Oliver.

Remember that.
