Hereâ€™s the story about the little Florida girl who was handcuffed by 3 cops after throwing a tantrum in kindergarten. It is, in many respects, the story of douchebags.
My inability to consistently find other peoplesâ€™ children adorable is no secret. But any real antipathy I reserve entirely for the parents; bratty kids are just hapless flotsam in the churning whirl of their self-absorbed parents’ neuroses.
Watching the video of this cherub having her little fit, I have three thoughts. One: all the adults in her life are douchebags. Two: I admire her outlaw attitude and fuck-the-establishment spirit. Three: sadly, the Establishment does not allow little black girls to fuck it for long.
That’s right. Patriarchy’s douchebag minions are on the job! To wit:
Americablogger and liberal activist John Aravosis diagnoses the terrified tyke–who gets yanked from her chair by armed enforcers and is fucking handcuffed like a criminal while a crowd of her teachers stands obediently by–as â€œtruly the bitch from hell.â€
I mean, dude. She’s five.
Some of the other charming comments in the related thread on Aravosis’ supposedly progressive blog reveal how thoroughly the sacred violent misogynist ideals of the neocon movement have been absorbed by its second-most-hated enemy, the lefty fags. A sample:
- Maybe the Supreme Court will bring back execution for minors. At the very least, they should have tazored the little monster.
- This kid needed a extra large can of Whoop Ass opened on her. What a little bitch!
- I’d make that little Jezebel wish she’d never been born
- And sorry, being a liberal doesn’t mean you should view that little demon as a victim!
- You want to jump off the table and break your neck? Here, let me help you!
- I would have smacked that little girl hard.
Way to spread the hate, liberal douchebags! It’s lovely to inhabit a world where a 5-year-old girl is a "bitch" and a "Jezebel" just for bucking the system.
Ordinarily I would blame the patriarchy, but in this case I think at least some of the credit has to go to plain old meanness.
