Hey parents, don't let this be you

Atlanta story hour signA drag queen dancing at a public library doesn’t have much in common with kids hitting a pinata shaped like a police officer, but really they do: what are you parents thinking? 

When the Fulton County Library cancelled another local push for a “Drag Queen Story Hour,” Atlanta's mayor invited the cross-dressing men to city hall, with lots of very young children in attendance.

So a man who calls himself “Miss Terra Cotta Sugarbaker” read to the impressionable young children.

In the name of tolerance, the event was even sponsored by the NFL's Atlanta Falcons and the NBA's Atlanta Hawks.

Rich Penkoski of Warriors for Christ says the parents should be ashamed.

Meanwhile, on the South Side in Chicago a neighborhood block party for children --- sponsored by local businesses --- included a pinata decorated to resemble a federal ICE agent.

Alex McFarland of Truth for a New Generation calls that another example of parents falling down on the job.

“Young people that don't naturally respect authority anyway,” he observes, “they have to be trained and coached into recognizing authority.”

In both cases so-called progressives encouraged and even enabled the children. Atlanta’s mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms, is a Democrat and co-organizers of the Chicago block party, Los Brown Berets, are self-described Chicano revolutionaries.

Even though ICE is hated by the Left a member of the group, wearing a beret and a straight face, told a Chicago TV news station that the ICE pinata "was not meant in a negative way at all towards law enforcement." 

“The Democrat Party has long been the party of immorality,” McFarland says, “but now they're the party of lawlessness.”

Even though the issue is no laughing matter, the satirical Babylon Bee website also summed up the current culture with a recent headline.
