Bad News / Good News

The bad news: As I observed with Ann Bauer while filling in for Brad Carlson last week, lockdowns are killing kids – especially kids who are, like so many these days, predisposed to mental illness:

Millions of American kids are struggling, and their chances for long-term improved mental health is predicated on the notion that we will now prioritize their emotional well-being, which our society has tragically shown it has no intention of doing.

Our hope for raising an emotionally healthy and mentally stable generation is dissipating with every day kids are kept locked in their bedrooms and out of schools. Skyrocketing rates of depression and anxiety are in no small part due to the fact that children feel neglected and forgotten, and they are not wrong to feel that way.

Our society has abandoned them and treated them as disposable. The damage caused by this abandonment is incalculable, and compounding every day we allow inertia, irrationality and the craven priorities of teachers unions to rule our decision-making.

The good news?

What, are you new around here? This is progressivism at work, operating through its wholly owned subsidiaries “Big Education” and “Big Karen”. Short of turning our culture around, there is none.

  1. I saw a video montage, think it was on Gateway Pundit, of kids passing out from wearing diapers on their faces while playing basketball, hockey and soccer.

    Some day these kids are going to walk up to the people who did this shit to them and knock them tfo.

  2. here’s another MD’s take:

    “adults across this country have caused a lot of unnecessary harm to their children during the pandemic. We have taught them to be afraid; we have indicated that they should not question authority; we have shown them how to be obedient to the government. We have suggested to them that any sacrifice in the name of community health is acceptable. We have even modeled a path forward — the easiest way to get along is to go along, to shut up and obey.”

  3. Ha! Nice post, jdm.

    My German has slipped over the years, but I understood enough to know that the panel was being mocked by the commentators.

  4. jdm, IMO, nothing adds the finishing touch to best in class mockery better than Sprechen Sie Deutsch.

  5. And of course, poor kids, especially black and Hispanic are hardest hit. This is the desired consequence of Davos crowd creating nations of slaves.

  6. American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten gives Biden “credit for wanting to help families get to a sense of hope.”

    Which reminds me of the words of Lone Watie in The Outlaw Josey Wales:
    “We only got to see the Secretary of the Interior, and he said: ‘Boy! You boys sure look civilized!’ he congratulated us and gave us medals for looking so civilized. We told him about how our land had been stolen and our people were dying. When we finished he shook our hands and said, ‘endeavor to persevere!’ They stood us in a line: John Jumper, Chili McIntosh, Buffalo Hump, Jim Buckmark, and me — I am Lone Watie. They took our pictures. And the newspapers said, ‘Indians vow to endeavor to persevere.’
    “We thought about it for a long time, ‘Endeavor to persevere.’ And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union.”

  7. Closing the public schools is the only good thing to come from the bat flu Dempanic. It gave parents time to make alternative plans, test them, and to put them into effect.

    Whenever the public schools re-open, I won’t entertain another complaint from a concerned “conservative” parent about the degenerate, anti-American, anti-White shit their kids are being subjected to.

    They will have proved beyond all doubt they’re not concerned at all.
