Can’t blame the youth

Better make sure your kids don’t say anything “anti-American,” or you may be questioned as a potential terrorist: Loudoun County sheriffs investigate 11 year-old national security risk. Read through some of the comments there. Several of them suggest that it is completely appropriate to question the parents of a child who doesn’t like Marines, to determine if they are potential terrorists. Viz:

A point to remember in this one: Kids views are heavily influenced by their parents. If an eleven year old is making these statements, then it is in the interests of the state to see where he is developing that viewpoint- either from possibly terrorist tied parents or from listening to Democrats and Dan Rather.

Maybe this is parody and I’ve just lost any sense of humor over the last year, but I don’t think so.

Just to make it clear: I am an enemy of the current administration. I think that they are anti-American. I further think that the current system of democracy, and our system of education, needs to be destroyed (creatively destroyed, at least). I also do not plan on killing or blowing anyone up, and usually don’t support those who do, including the Marines. Consider that my New Year’s resolution. If I do decide to engage in any state-busting this year, I’m taking my cue from Subcomandante Marcos. If the police have any questions, they know where to find me.
