When children are abused by adults who are supposed to be caring for and nurturing them, they lose faith in humanity. They don't trust people. They see the world as a very unsafe, scary place. And saddest of all, they don't see themselves as worth a damn.
Glenn Beck says children don't have rights. If they think they do, things are going to get really bad for them.
Well, kids do have rights. They have the right to be kids and have their needs met. The right to be loved, cherished and nurtured.
And they have the right to see the world as a safe place, starting with their own parents.
Around the dinner table.
I don't know who raised Glenn Beck, or how they raised him. But you only need to look at the man's eyes to see his fear. The fear of a small child.
In my opinion, this man is mentally ill. Delusional. Narcissistic. Paranoid.
Here's part of his tirade:
Ask your kids tonight at dinner, "What gives you the right?" Challenge them. Get in their face.
You talk about, "I've got rights, you know." Really? Who issues them? Teach 'em a lesson. Push 'em! Well, they're gonna cry, it's gonna hurt their feelings. Well, push 'em!
Because if you don't do it now, it's going to be much worse when they're pushed and they're shoved and they're shot. Push them! Teach them! The need to know the truth and they need to be pushed up against the wall once in awhile so they know they can defend themselves. They know they can survive! They don't run around like little girls crying at the drop of a hat! Push 'em!
