If this video doesn’t represent everything that is wrong with the West, I don’t know what would.
Via Vlad Tepes:
(This man is consigning is child and his adopted culture and its history to the dustbin and thinking he is the moral pinnacle by doing so)
In case anyone doesn’t believe there is a war on reason in order to pimp the narrative of cultural Marxism at all costs, check out the version of that video that CBSN actually aired. See if you can tell which bits are edited out of the actual interview.
A French reporter interviewed a young boy and his father at a memorial for the victims of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris. The reporter asks the boy if he understands what happened, and why the terrorists did what they did.
The little boy answers the reporter:
“Yes, because they’re really, really mean. And … we have to be really careful because we have to change houses.”
The boy’s father responds to his son:
“Oh no, don’t worry … we don’t need to move. France is our home.”
The little boy responds:
“But there’s bad guys, daddy.”
The father attempts to reassure his son, saying:
“It’s okay. They might have guns, but we have flowers.”
At this point, the little boy starts to school his father and the reporter:
“But flowers don’t do anything. They’re for, they’re for …”
From the mouths of babes.
Obviously, at this point, the little boy had not yet been so inculcated with “tolerance” and other progressive tripe that he could not recognize an existential threat. He saw the self-evident truth: flowers and candles will not protect you from “really, really mean people” with guns who indiscriminately slaughter men, women and children.
What is so sad about this video, however, is you see the indoctrination occurring before your very eyes.
The father interrupts his son:
“Of course they do. Look, everyone is laying flowers … it’s to fight against guns.”
Puzzled, the boy responds:
“It’s to protect? The flowers and the candles will protect us.”
Naturally, the father and the reporter represent authority figures to the little boy. So, he begins to parrot their position. But I can look into this little boy’s eyes and see the confusion. If I could only take him aside and tell him:
“You see the truth … the simple, self-evident truth. Unfortunately, your father and the adults present do not. Why? I do not know.”
This is where we are in the West. We have so-called adults who believe that flowers and candlelight vigils will protect us from savage, gun-wielding terrorists hellbent on creating as much suffering as is humanly possible. How sad … how utterly sad. But, it’s really beyond sad. At best, it’s irresponsible; at worst, it’s utterly reprehensible.
Don’t get me wrong. I think it’s great that so many people are paying their respects and mourning the victims of the Paris attacks. But to inculcate young minds into believing that candles and flowers alone will protect them from sheer evil is so mindbogglingly stupid that it represents a form of evil in and of itself.
