You’ve Got To Be Taught To Hate

Have you seen this:

Winnipeg ‘white pride’ mother regrets redrawing swastika on child’s arm

Channah told me about this at shul over the weekend. Again, I certainly don’t want the government to control what I teach my children. But this just isn’t OK.

    ack! did you see the abc bit on those two girls who play white-supremacist rock songs? they are a blond-blue-eyed duo of hatred…i use the abc piece with my 7th/8th graders and talk about parental brainwashing as well as teaching hatred, etc….there are some crazy folks out there!?

    After a week of mulling on this article, I’m still conflicted. On the one hand, I’m really glad that the police and CPS are so proactive against hatred that they’re stopping this in it’s tracks. I can’t picture how uncomfortable it would be for my son to be in school sitting next to another child with a swastika on her arm. And what message would the rest of the students be learning?
    On the other hand, it sounds like she was providing a good clean home, meeting all of her children’s needs, and the children were being taken away not because of neglect but because of her beliefs – it just feels like a slippery slope to me.
