Toddlers Brainwashed, Portland Style

We like to think of toddlers as some of the most innocent among us. We marvel at how they can love unconditionally, without concern for another person’s color or race.

Those of us who are parents or grandparents of these wee humans teach them how to be respectful. How to share, how to be kind to other children. We also teach them to respect community helpers, such as EMTs, doctors, teachers, and police.

This video went viral last fall. It shows two toddlers — one black, one white — greeting each other with glee. Apparently these boys are besties, too. In an internet filled with social media mobs and gutter politics, this gave us all a little hope for the country.

But then this just happened in Portland. Tiny toddlers were marched past the federal courthouse, holding up signs that they can’t read, and certainly didn’t create. But the adults did. And those signs read, Fuck the Police. 

Not only that, but on cue from the “adults,” (which I use in scare quotes), they repeated those same words: Fuck the Police. One little tot even brandished a black power fist. Or is it a Marxist fist? I don’t think the little girl knew either. But at least they wore masks (yes, I’m being sarcastic).

You’re probably wondering: what kind of person brainwashes toddlers with this sort of malice? 

Well, as I said above, it’s in Portland, and that says it all, doesn’t it.

Now I don’t know if those kids in the video are from this organization, but a group called the “Portland Childcare Collective” teaches children to hate police.

Here is some of the agitprop they feed to these innocent munchkins:

“Police are nice to some people, but they are not nice to everybody.

“All people can be hurt by the police.”

“Black people and other people of color get in trouble and even killed for doing things that white people are allowed to do every day.”

And there’s more:

“Good people can become police, but policing isn’t good for our communities. Police follow unfair rules. When someone becomes a police officer, their choice to follow those rules hurts people.”

Finally, they offer pro-tips for the parents of these toddlers:

“Further conversations may include discussions about police history in the U.S., how they are connected to white supremacy, and imagining a world without police. This is just the start.”

This collective also mocks people who have expressed alarm about their vicious indoctrination.

But don’t just blame the preschools for this brainwashing. Also incriminate the parents if they’ve chosen to send their toddlers to these indoctrination camps. You know those parents are onboard with such programming, because what parent doesn’t check out preschools before enrolling their child?

Which also makes me wonder just what are they’re teaching their kids at home — no, wait. I don’t have to wonder.

Parents — most often by example — teach their kids what’s important to the family. If faith is important to parents, they will take them to religious services, for example. If they want their kids to have a healthy diet, they serve healthful meals at home.

Good moms and dads also demonstrate respect for police and others in authority. They read books to their kids about police, or firefighters, or people who serve in the military. Parents will also speak of their duties with respect.

In short, young children learn from what they see.

But those little Portland toddlers are learning hate for police, if not at their preschool, then undoubtedly at home.

What kind of place wants to turn little children into revolutionaries? And what kind of parents would teach their offspring to hate police? Answer: useful idiots who believe that the nation at heart is evil, and who loathe America more than they love their children.

    And THIS is why certain communities have more problems with the cops, get shot by them, etc, it is NOT racism!! (at least not on the part of the cops)..
    Sure, there’s bad cops, no group that large would be free of bad apples, but you just pointed out perfectly which side is “systemic” in this regard.
    Thanks Kim

    When my daughter was 4, she and her younger brother went to a neighborhood daycare. They were the only white kids in the daycare, but there were never any concerns; everyone has always loved Sarah. Then, one day, as she was about to have her 5th birthday party, we asked her if she wanted to invite a boy whose name I can no longer remember, but who was her best friend at the daycare, to the party. She said, “No. He has black skin, and I don’t like people with black skin.”

    This came as a great surprise to us, as she had not gotten that at home, so we made some discreet inquiries. It seems that the daycare had decided to have a pageant for Black History Month, and part of it was a skit about Rosa Parks. Sarah, being the only white kid available who could remember the lines, was type-cast as the white customer who wanted Rosa Parks to give up her seat. In the process, she learned a lesson none of the adults in her life wanted her to learn.

    To their credit, the staff at the daycare was horrified when they found out what had happened, but it did strain relationships somewhat.
