Conservative Brainwashing Extends to Children
Conservative parnaoia hits childrens books. In efforts to brainwash children, they use their usual tactic of creating stawmen to attack rather than actually responding to liberal ideas. Here’s the description for Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!:
This full-color illustrated book is a fun way for parents to teach young children the valuable lessons of conservatism. Written in simple text, readers can follow along with Tommy and Lou as they open a lemonade stand to earn money for a swing set. But when liberals start demanding that Tommy and Lou pay half their money in taxes, take down their picture of Jesus, and serve broccoli with every glass of lemonade, the young brothers experience the downside to living in Liberaland.
The Oregonean repors that, thanks to promotion from Rush Limbaugh (who perhaps will also teach kids how to take OxyContin) and the ususal right wing bloggers, the book is in its third printing. Follow up books are planned such as “Help! Mom! Hollywood Is in My Hamper!” and “Help! Mom! There Are Lawyers in My Lunch Box!”
Of course there is a liberal response with Why Mommy is a Democrat.
