A few years ago when my youngest was under 2 years old, I went to pick him up from his daycare late in the day. He ran to me as usual and I picked him up. I quickly noticed human bite marks on his arm. I calmly asked the teacher what happened and she informed me, clearly nervous about my potential reaction, that another child had bit my son. Still calm, I asked why. The teacher informed me that my son had pushed the other child down and took his toy.
The teacher was clearly afraid I would go off on them about it protecting my kid from the “bully,” and, as I found out later, that’s because that is the normal reaction of parents. I simply looked at my son and said, “I’d have bit you too!” My son was actually the one being a brat, and he got bitten for it. Served him right.
Last week, Dave Urbanski of The Blaze reported about 17-year-old Danta Wright laughing in court as his murder victim’s mother tearfully tried to read her statement to the court. The sad disregard for life and lack of empathy for this mother who’s life he destroyed is bad enough. What makes ME crazy is that his mother decided to make excuses for him, saying that his laughing is part of his “mental illness.”
Mental illness? Ok, I might buy that. But if he was that mentally ill, why was he out roaming the streets instead of home? Where were YOU mom? Why was he in a position to kill someone?
Back in 2015, a young man named Adric White held up a Family Dollar store. A licensed concealed handgun holder walked in on the armed robbery and shot White, defending the lives of the people White was threatening. This was the 2nd armed robbery for White in a month. When it was over, White’s family said the CHL holder should have “minded his own business.”
Minded his own business? Really? Their son held up a store at gunpoint and their response was that the hero of this story should have “minded his own business?”
Guess what? If they had done a better job raising this young man, the hero COULD have minded his own business, which I’m certain he would have rather done anyway.
Michael Brown is another example. His thug mother has been in trouble with the law plenty, and naturally she made the cop her son viciously attacked after robbing a convenience store out to be the bad guy instead of recognizing her son as the thug he was.
Hey, parents! Take some responsibility for your own actions and recognize your children make mistakes too. When they do, chastise them accordingly. When you don’t, they end up becoming a Michael Brown or a Danta Wright!
I know some people will think this is a racial or economic issue, but let me point out to you all the white, middle to upper-class kids joining Antifa and causing mayhem in the name of imagined injuries. Thugs are thugs, no matter what their racial or economic background.
Discipline your children! That’s part of parenting. Too many people today aren’t interested in parenting, just in breeding. Parenting in today’s me-centric culture is ugly and leads to people who have no place in a civilized society. Don’t like it? Too bad. The truth doesn’t stop being the truth because it hurts your feelings or those of the kids you failed to discipline growing up.
I refuse to let my kids turn into thugs like Antifa or your garden variety criminal. It will be interesting to see in 15 years if those parents who used to get mad at the teachers at my son’s school over the fact that their kids were bullies, will be proud of what their kids have become.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
