Wisconsin Republican Senator Proposes Bill That Labels Single-Parenthood As Child Abuse

February 29, 2012
By

Not a day goes by in this topsy-turvy, mad max eschatology that Republicans have created where a Republican politician isn’t uttering some certifiably insane, hateful malarkey that would make Charles Manson blush. Whether you’re gay, black, female, or a spore with feelings, Republicans do not like you if unless you aspire to be a white christian millionaire.

Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend), a Republican in Wisconsin’s state senate, thinks that children from single parents are probably victims of child abuse. In his world, a deadbeat dad (Joe Walsh, anyone?) is an American hero whereas the single mom is a disordered, unstable Harlot and should probably be raped by a state doctor. But seriously, Grothman recently authored a controversial bill that directly targets single parents, which the State Senator plans on presenting to the Senate Committee on Public Health, Human Services and Revenue.

A portion of the bill reads as follows:


“In promoting those campaigns and materials, the [Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board] shall emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.”

No word yet on whether single parents are covert Muslim socialist/Maoists.

Despite the fact that Single Parents comprise 32 percent of Wisconsin, they are inherently evil and if the state cannot imprison them at Guantanamo Bay indefinitely, they will at least make sure that they’re regarded with severe suspicion.

The remainder of the bill reads as follows:

Section 1. 48.982 (2) (g) 2. of the statutes is amended to read:
48.982 (2) (g) 2. Promote statewide educational and public awareness campaigns and materials for the purpose of developing public awareness of the problems of child abuse and neglect. In promoting those campaigns and materials, the board shall emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.

Section 2. 48.982 (2) (g) 4. of the statutes is amended to read:
48.982 (2) (g) 4. Disseminate information about the problems of and methods of preventing child abuse and neglect to the public and to organizations concerned with those problems. In disseminating that information, the board shall emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.

I do believe that IDEALlY kids are raised by 2 parents (straight, gay, I don't care), it is definitely NOT abuse to be a single parent!!!
That is just crazy!!!!

The only crime I see are the "mom jeans" in the photo...
