Raynard Jackson, a Republican political and PR consultant, has an absolutely deranged column in Charisma magazine demanding that social services remove the children of people who advocate in favor of same-sex marriage and teach their kids that gay couples should have legal equality.
Krystal Ball, another MSNBC talk show host and feminist, aired a video of her and her 5-year-old daughter, Ella. Ball asks Ella if she knows what marriage is, and she says she does not. Then the daughter says marriage is between a man and a woman. That’s when her mother begins to indoctrinate her daughter about homosexual marriage. I was mortified that a parent would do this to her own daughter—on national TV. Social services should remove Ella from this house because her mother is without question an unfit parent…
What Ball did to her daughter may not be child abuse legally, but morally it is definitely abuse, and I am amazed that even liberals of goodwill have not criticized her for such abuse.
How about we take your kids away instead for being an authoritarian asshole?
