The Left is chock full of arrogant, self-righteous, and powerfully xenophobic types who have little tolerance for anything outside their special brand of hate.


SirFudgesicle

And if you oppose them they label you everything bad about themselves.


Eli_Truax

It's worse. If you oppose them they have to reduce you to meaninglessness to maintain their pristine fairy-like self images. I've been at this for over 25 years since I "walked away" and in the many thousands of attempts at conversation I can't remember a one interested in finding any common ground outside their gaslight hypnotism.


SirFudgesicle

Even on there own side they turn against the people who are not as far left as they are


Eli_Truax

It's like a control freak pyramid scheme.


SirFudgesicle

Basically but yet at the same time they will defend what anyone of them says no matter how racist, terrorist supportive, or just stupid it is


Eli_Truax

Well non-deranged people are beneath the pyramid as far as they're concerned.


SirFudgesicle

Pretty much


frenlyapu

I try to have sympathy for mentally ill ppl but its hard when they act like they do. Could their issues be caused by recreational drugs?


mtz9444

Exacerbated probably. Drugs tend to amplify the malignant part of people when misused. Some people cannot handle them at all, yet still take them. My guess those type of people would fit the typical commenter on that post.


frenlyapu

They need psychiatric care but don't get it. That truly is the bottom line. Most I have met suffer from bipolar and clinical depression as admitted on their Facebook profiles and on other social media.


Eli_Truax

I think there's an extremely high rate anti-psychotic prescriptions among Leftists, especially the women.


frenlyapu

I lurked on the Facebook profiles of leftist women who had friended me when I was on Facebook....its pretty revealing to see what they are very open about when they forget who's on their friend lists: bipolar, deep depression, gender confusion, lots of weirdness/insanity. They all had friended me bc we had mutual interests in animals.


Eli_Truax

I've come to suspect that people who are torn, living a life of lies inconsistent with their real selves tend to lose touch with reality and I doubt there's any group fitting that description more than Leftist women.


frenlyapu

Or they do a quick check of your Reddit posting history, pick out one or two they think can make you look controversial to other leftards (prolife, etc), while ignoring the rest, and call you a troll. They truly are mentally ill and are genuinely envious of those who are not. I am so glad I am not like them and that my adult children aren't!


gelber_Bleistift

The left is full of schizophrenics. They are beyond delusional.


kwtransporter66

They are the true racist and xenophobes.


Pingayaso

But the parents of an [11 year old boy](https://neonnettle.com/news/5977-11-year-old-transgender-boy-dances-in-ny-bar-as-men-throw-dollar-bills-at-him) dancing at a bar for adults for dollar bills must be so modern, inclusive and not insane.


SirFudgesicle

It all depends on who you vote for


tenebrapetrichor

Note the post said nothing about the father and daughters position on the videos they watched. For all we know they could have been highly critical of them. But what’s important here is that the father and daughter engaged in critical thinking and the discussion of ideas. And that’s what the left sees as child abuse.


Altered_Beast805

>But what’s important here is that the father and daughter engaged in critical thinking and the discussion of ideas. And that’s what the left sees as child abuse. Exactly. Can't expose your children to thoughtcrime. I'm an atheist and I watch PragerU vids all the time. Some I agree with, some I don't. But I can't think of a vid that didn't succinctly lay out the position being taken.


tenebrapetrichor

One can’t defend their position without understanding the position of their opponent.


[deleted]

I saw this post before and the father meant in a positive way.


Capitalismworks1978

Bold coming from people who will willingly remove the genitals of their children just so their friends think that they’re special


PrizeFighting4Head18

It’s funny how any post with a mild hint of pro conservatism turns the thread into a hornets nest of liberals spewing hatred and bigotry


pointsouturhypocrisy

The party of unity wastes no time showing their love, compassion, and acceptance.


brrep4202

The true insane parents are the ones that let their children decide what their genders are


SirFudgesicle

Or let them transition as a teen and then commit self harm later in life because they made a mistake.


RandyCheow

So brainwashing and indoctrinating kids with those LGBT, gender, CRT crap is not child abuse according to the left

[удалено]


urbancowgirl42

I would modify that to sending children to any school and being uninvolved is child abuse. I am a conservative teacher and I teach in a really good district, but it’s because parents are involved, care about education, and stay on their kids to achieve. I myself had an excellent education because my dad did the same.


tjpenley

They do because they’re psychos😂


erengawang

Lol they’d have a totally different approach if it was CNN made skits


curtwagner1984

It's funny how indoctrinating a child with political views you oppose is child abuse, but indoctrinating a child with political views you agree with is quality education. So teaching a child that if he's gay, he's going to burn in hell. Is child abuse, but teaching a child that if he's white and male he's collectively responsible for everything bad under the sun, is not.


frenlyapu

Reason# 324, 645 why I made the decision to homeschool even before we had children.😉


Curmudgeon1836

I suspect the part they found abusive was expecting a child to work in order to earn a reward.


kindstranger42069

I don’t even like PragerU that much but saying it’s child abuse is really dumb and good for her for finding her own path politically


mr_gerald_sathior

Holy crap the comments on the original post is just a cesspool.


dantehman81

These are the people sending child molesters into library story hour.


RemarkableThought20

At least there is one kid being raised right.


Phantom_Stranger2021

in the lefty clown world, learning about American values, tradition, and conservative ideas is abuse. You see, the only learning a child should do is within the state-approved indoctrination centers.


riotguards

Also r/insaneparents “This women wouldn’t let her kid watch blue clues and the transgender lgbt pride episode with the pedo flag, they’re so insane racist people!”


frenlyapu

Leftists love abortion which proves they don't *really* care about children. They want to indoctrinate our children, something I recognized decades ago which is why my now-adult children were 100% homeschooled.


riotguards

The left is anti child and family so with what is essentially a death cult mentality they can only hope to replenish their numbers by brainwashing the vulnerable


frenlyapu

Exactly right.


pointsouturhypocrisy

That's why they keep going younger and younger with their indoctrination. The only reason to teach kindergartners about trans and gay people is to groom them. Those are adult issues. Children DO NOT need to be exposed to it. Theres no way they can grasp those concepts, and no reason for them to. Unless you're grooming them.


DanGur47

11.5k upvotes and counting, lol. I love that Reddit is a mostly leftist cesspool.


MrBootyLicker

Holy shit the comments in that thread are pathetic.


Afterallthisstuff

We’re in clown world now, where it’s the adults who are the petulant, immature, selfish, spiteful, and vindictive members of our society.


iostream64

Bruh what? I got into politics about a year later. It could have been parental bonding. Pretty much why I got into it, my dad and I really didn't get along until then.

pointsouturhypocrisy

Have you watched it? Or any of the ones you're framing as "horrible perspectives?" I don't think you have. Youre just perpetuating the leftist narrative without a drop of actual insight.


Stoneage-Hentai

[Unironically yes. It is.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUz1nCRJJBg)


mtz9444

Mate, I just checked this chick’s channel. She has a video in which she claims the human mind cannot grasp the concept of imagining 1 million/billion/trillion chairs. Now that’s a smoothbrain person if I ever saw one. While her video is interesting, and PragerU’s video about education is quite bad, her takes are as stupid as the one listed above.


Stoneage-Hentai

Dude humans not being able to grasp how big numbers like a million and a billion is a pretty well known fact. Like we know its a big number but we never really have a frame of reference in our day to day lives for things like that. If you don't believe me heres a little experiment without looking it up, how many days is a million seconds? How many Years is a billion?


mtz9444

1.000.000 seconds / (60 x 60 x 24) = 1.000.000 / 86.400 = 10.000 / 864 = approx 11,5 days. As for one billion, you just add the zeroes to the formula (or move the decimal point on the result by as many zeroes you added to the number of seconds). In this case, 11.500 days. That’s about 32 years. 31,7 something something if you want a bit more precision. I guess you flunked basic math if you believe this is hard to grasp. It’s 4th grade math. And not hard to conceptualize at all, if you have sone semblance of education.


Stoneage-Hentai

Conceptualizing something isn't the same as just plugging some numbers into a calculator. The point of the seconds exercise isn't to sit down and work it out as an equation its to guess, the point being that it would be far greater than most people would think off the top of their head, to illustrate how massive these numbers truly are. The fact that you actually had to sit down and work out how long it would be kind of proves my point you aren't able to actually imagine how big these numbers are innately. Nobody needs a calculator to figure out how long 60 seconds is, its something we can reasonably fathom because its something we come in contact with fairly regularly. If someone asked you imagine a billion people all in one place, anyone could write down 1 followed by 9 zeros but actually being able to fathom how many that would be to see in person is something most humans aren't equipped to deal with, because we never encounter a billion of anything in our day to day lives. And anyway debating this is pointless anyway since has literally nothing to do with the video I posted.


mtz9444

Sit down and work out? Mate, those were done in my head in a couple of seconds. Not everybody needs to go trough a 2 hour process to add some numbers. All you’re doing is arguing a smoothbrain take for a smoothbrain person. And you don’t seem to be one, so why lower yourself to that level?


Stoneage-Hentai

Well im glad you'd rather respond to my phrasing than any actual argument, but i'll reiterate one more time, conceptualization isn't about being able to calculate large numbers regardless of how fast you can do it. And honestly while we're on the subject of "smoothbrain takes" why are you so concerned with this when it has nothing to do with the video I posted? If you're so concerned with a woman saying "people have trouble grasping large numbers" then why don't you have the same scrutiny for an unlicensed "psychologist" who is literally a member of a registered hate group? Or have any problem with a guy like that being platformed by PragerU?


mtz9444

You literally answered another comment in this thread with “forcing your children to watch hours upon hours....” Tell me, your counter to a “propaganda” video is to brainwash your kid with a moron’s ideas from youtube? Now that’s a smart idea /s Your point doesn’t matter to me, since it relies on the sayings of a cretin, a statement I can positively make after watching more of her goddamn channel.


Stoneage-Hentai

>You literally answered another comment in this thread with “forcing your children to watch hours upon hours....” I don't even know what your point is here. >Tell me, your counter to a “propaganda” video is to brainwash your kid with a moron’s ideas from youtube? Now that’s a smart idea /s When did I say that? This video is just pointing out that the original PragerU video is unreliable. >Your point doesn’t matter to me, since it relies on the sayings of a cretin, a statement I can positively make after watching more of her goddamn channel. As in to say you don't have an argument. PragerU is platforming literal members of hate groups as though they're reliable authorities on the subject matter, this video is just one example of a wider problem with pragerU. And again if you're so concerned with the "cretin" who made the response video why aren't you showing the same level of scrutiny to a massive channel hosting parenting "experts" who think you should beat your kids?


mtz9444

PragerU is unreliable and has cretin takes. So does that chick. Both are unreliable. You countered PragerU shit with shit. It’s amazing I even have to explain this to you. My concern is simple, the normalization of misinformation.


snazzed

Uh, no. It's not. That video doesn't have anything to do with OP, it's about a completely different idea that people who watch PragerU are all bad parents. Which is frankly not that absurd, but anyway... My point being, protecting children from conflicting points of view is indoctrination, which would be real abuse. Letting them consume different media covering different perspectives and then explaining the reasoning behind them is proper parenting. Whether you acknowledge PragerU as misinformation or not, it's not child abuse to allow your children to watch them. If you want to call giving children misinformation child abuse, I wholeheartedly believe parents who follow leftist media have done a hell of a lot worse than any idiot who turns on PragerU can for youth.


Stoneage-Hentai

I'm sorry but forcing you're children to watch dozens upon dozens of blatantly false agenda driven videos, and portraying them as reputable, when some videos are literally hosted by members of hate groups is definitely harmful. And showing children different points of view is fine although I seriously doubt the mother from the original picture is doing any of that. But portraying all povs as equally valid isn't. Like I think we can all agree that you can't put a flat earther and a nasa scientist aren't equally reputable.
