Social contagion

Back in the day, to suggest that brainwashing children was an essential component of the Left’s program to inculcate their hatred of America, Americans, and capitalism in future generations was to establish oneself in the minds of most as a paranoiac, a lunatic, and/or a conspiracy theorist with an at best tenuous grasp on reality. But those days are long gone; as it turns out, the conspiracy is real, the program is in place and beavering away…and yes, brainwashing our kids is a YUUUGE part of it. Exhibit A:

It’s a very simple graph, but it speaks to a deep sickness in society. Komodo Health Inc. has tracked over five years, from 2017 to 2021, the number of children who identify as “transgender” (that is, in purely medical terms, they suffer from gender dysphoria) has increased so dramatically that it cannot possibly be an organic development. Instead, we are witnessing the brainwashing of America’s youth—something coming from pop culture, their schools, and their peers.

We all know that young people are impressionable. Their minds are little sponges, they’ve been minimally affected by life’s realities, they are more likely to respond to experiences and information with emotions rather than reason, and they are extremely vulnerable to peer pressure. I’m not even going to spend 20 minutes hunting for authorities for each of those statements. Anyone who once was a child remembers that way of being and thinking, and anyone who has raised a child has seen those factors from a more objective, adult perspective.

Since the 1940s, in less serious (although sometimes still dangerous) ways, we’ve seen children’s undeveloped brains lead them to:

  • Swoon over Frank Sinatra
  • Swoon over The Beatles
  • Swoon over the Bay City Rollers
  • Eat Tide pods
  • Take the cinnamon challenge
  • Take extreme selfies in dangerous locations
  • Use nauseating amounts of Axe deodorant
  • Play the passing-out game
  • Pierce themselves all over

I could go on, but you get my drift. Make something a fad, and there is no end to what children will do. The current fad is worse than anything in the bullet points above because it’s not just coming from children’s peers. Instead, pop culture and their own schools are promoting transgenderism. At a very fundamental level, children are being brainwashed into denying their own bodies.

Matt Walsh explains very well that we are seeing a complete inversion of the 1990s trend that saw parents, teachers, and the media relentlessly tell kids that they were absolutely perfect and beyond wonderful, with no need to change by even a scintilla. That message extended to their bodies: All young people’s bodies were perfect and beautiful bodies. Al Franken’s only funny character, Stuart Smalley, summed it up: “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough and, doggone it, people like me!”

Now, however, children are being told that, if they feel awkward, different, or wrong (which is completely normal for kids, especially as they go through puberty), they are correct to feel that way. God or Nature made a terrible mistake with them, and the only remedy is hormones that cause permanent sterilization and diseases, combined with permanent body mutilating surgery.

Hey now, ain’t nothing wrong with swooning over Sinatra or the Beatles. Hell, even the Bay City Rollers had their moments.

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."
Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

Claire's Cabal—The Freedom Forums


"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
Bill Whittle
