The ‘D’ in Democrat Stands for Debauchery

The party is increasingly in favor of raunchy behavior and content, even for kids.

Is nothing sacred anymore? Is nothing off limits for displays of deviancy, adult-rated entertainment, or graphic content?

High school boys wandering inside after football practice might have more decency in their locker room banter than the conversations taking place within the meeting rooms of our congressional buildings these days.

Topics of discussion that used to happen in the kind of bars with images of scantily dressed women on the door are now part of the daily dialogue between parents and their children’s teachers.

Novels that we used to have to actively seek out in adult-rated bookstores are now easily accessible on the shelves of our kids’ classrooms, often handed out by their teachers. This obscene material is now deemed as educational and informative.

The birds and the bees used to be the conversation that parents dreaded in raising their kids. Now those chats are a walk in the park in comparison to the depravity our kids are exposed to by just walking out the front door or looking for something harmless to do.

During a September 12 Senate hearing on “banned books,” Louisiana Senator John Kennedy read aloud excerpts from the books All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson and Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe. Both books are or were accessible in numerous middle and high schools across the country, though both have been taken or kept off of the shelves of countless school libraries due to their detailed descriptions of sexual acts between teenagers, often accompanied by graphic illustrations.

Yet we cannot expect these books to stay out of the hands of our school-age children, as Democrats appear to be unanimous on the false notion that removing explicit materials from libraries meant for kids is a repeat of the book burnings of the 1930s, and that not allowing children to view or read this content is censorship of the worst kind.

This debate around setting boundaries for children when it comes to adult material has gone from moral to political. Leftists have decided that boundaries of any kind are oppressive, and they are now relentlessly pushing corruption and degeneracy as a normal way of life.

School board meetings used to be an organized event for parents to connect with the leaders of the district in which their child was being educated. Such meetings were a place to work together for the common agenda of fostering an environment for success, going over budgeting and goals, and planning for the future. Today, every available minute allocated for the community to vocalize their concerns is taken up by parents reading aloud the latest shocking book or assignment filled with content that the district leaders say is inappropriate for the room full of adults to hear.

Family-friendly restaurants have become favorite venues for sexually explicit drag shows, where grown men dressed as hyper-sexualized caricatures of women shake prosthetic versions of our reproductive anatomy in front of a room full of patrons, and kids are usually targets of the show, in one way or another.

Sporting events are not safe from this agenda either. MLB’s Los Angeles Dodgers took some heat in June after inviting one of the nation’s most brazen groups dedicated to promoting an immoral and degenerate society, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, to a family night and celebration of Pride Month. Parents watched from the sidelines as these “performers,” loosely dressed up as nuns, openly mocked the crucifixion of Jesus while pole dancing on a homemade cross.

Even grocery shopping has been pulled into the marketplace of perversion, as Target demonstrated with its Pride Month collection of rainbow-covered clothing items and Satanic accessories for the whole family.

We used to occasionally have kids shut their eyes or plug their ears to avoid questionable messaging during a TV program, or look away from an adult-themed billboard in order to protect their eyes and ears from absorbing concepts that are too young to understand. Those days are over.

We cannot trust that the book a young student pulls from the shelf at their school library isn’t one that should only be sold in an adult paraphernalia shop. We can’t take the family to a sporting event, restaurant, or community gathering without being hyper-focused on what’s being casually pushed from the shadows right on to the direct path of families.

There seem to be fewer opportunities for true, clean time out with the kids.

And how much farther down this path society spirals now largely depends on how you vote. The parties are now distinctly divided on valuing morals and boundaries versus advocating for no limits on what anyone and everyone in society should be exposed to at any time.
