Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton allowed several trees to be killed for her 1996 book, “It Takes a Village” so she could lecture parents on how we are ill-equipped to raise our kids without an assist from the government. In the late P.J. O’Rourke’s review of her book for the late Weekly Standard he put it succinctly, “It takes a village to raise a child. The village is Washington.”
Fast forward to today, the radical left has thrown down the gauntlet as their crusade to come for our kids has grown louder and they’ve declared our children communal property.
President Biden, speaking to teachers at the White House last week for the Teacher of the Year ceremony, announced, “They’re all our children. And the reason you’re the teachers of the year is because you recognize that. They’re not somebody else’s children. They’re like yours when they’re in the classroom.”
Ummm, no. They’re still “like” ours — in the classroom, out of the classroom, here, there, everywhere. Still our kids.
We the parents are not interested in co-parenting with the state.
