NY Times: We Should Let Generation Tide Pod Lead On Gun Control Or Something

Every teenager thinks they Know It All. I bet you thought that when you were in high school and college. I bet I did too. And, we all did dumb stuff when we were young. And every adult generation made fun of the dumb stuff kids did. But, I don’t remember my generation doing things like eating Tide Pods to the point where the detergent had to be put in locked boxes. We also weren’t as touchy and Offended by everything. We lived by the rule “sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me.” So, yeah, let’s totally let people who earned the moniker “special snowflakes” lead

Editorial: America Has Failed Its Kids on Guns. It’s Time to Let Them Lead.

Adults are supposed to take care of children — not only keep them safe, but make them feel safe. Schools are essentially an extension of the home, in that sense, providing sanctuaries of learning, of nurturing and care. But after years of attacks by people with weapons of war, students cannot feel safe and are demanding that adults end years of complaisance and act. They are not asking for their schools to become armed garrisons. Rather, they want those weapons to be brought under control. And unlike too many adults, the young people leading Wednesday’s walkout at schools around the country — inspired by angry, motivated students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Fla., where 17 people were killed by a former student with an assault weapon — have had the courage to take on the industry responsible for blocking every reasonable measure to limit access to guns, including those that make it all too easy to commit mass murder.

As Stoneman Douglas junior Florence Yared said in front of the Florida State Capitol late last month, “You adults have failed us by not creating a safer place for your children to go to school. So we, the next generation, will not fail our own kids. We will make this change happen. If not today, then tomorrow, and if not tomorrow, next year. Take it from us. You created a mess for us, but we will make this world safer for our children.”

So, if memory serves, it was a complete and utter failure of the process, of people who work for government at the local, county, and federal levels not doing their jobs. Heck, even their radios failed. That’s what the kids should be upset about. Instead, it looks like they are in gun banning/grabbing mode, which is surely being pushed by adults.

With Wednesday’s demonstration, and their March for Our Lives movement on March 24 in Washington, young voices are being heard. How will the nation’s adults respond? Hopefully, by amplifying their demand: Never again.

Following that are all sorts of quotes from these worldly Tide Pods eaters (OK, they don’t all do that. Many just take a gazillion selfies and videos of themselves involved in inappropriate, risque, and stupid behavior), but, hey, if the NY Times Editorial Board is totally behind safety, why are they not concerned with children walking out of school? Shouldn’t adults be stopping them? Those adults are charged with safeguarding and watching these children during specific hours of the day.

“We may be young but our voices are louder than you can imagine.”

Screaming babies are loud, too. Kids denied their cookie can get pretty loud. I don’t take advice from people who spend more time on social justice idiocy than STEM, history, and real world subjects, and think that there are more than two genders. But, what this all is is the NYTEB using kids as human shields to attempt to get their gun grabbing rules and laws passed.

    The problem the ammosexuals find themselves in this time is that they killed kids where the survivors are old enough to speak out. When the rightists murdered the little kids in Newtown, the GOPhers labeled it a hoax, and nothing happened.

    Although the right once again is blaming the victims and attacking the survivors (A Maine GOPher called Emma Rodriguez a “lesbian skinhead” and The TEACH calls them the Tide Pod Generation and Snowflakes), they don’t appear to be going away. And in a couple of years they’ll be voters.

    Even some GOPhers (but not DJ tRump) are defying the NRA.

    As much as the fascist right-wing ammosexuals would like to murder them all, you can’t. You are right to be afraid of them. Your high capacity magazines may be at risk. You may have to identify yourself at a gun show. But be comforted that your Viagra will still be covered by insurance.

    Well put, young Leal, well put.

    These are the same dipshits calling for more of the same, laws and government, that failed them on multiple levels. It’s cute when kids think they have something to the conversation, simply humor them by listening to them before pointing them back to the kid’s table. And now that we know the democrats are coaching them their shelf-life for any input has been zeroed-out, and they’re completely open to criticism.

  4. Jl says:

    Yes. As I saw, they may want to bring death penalty charges against the Florida shooter. But I thought it wasn’t his fault? Wasn’t it the gun’s fault or the NRAs fault….?

  5. drowningpuppies says:

    Regardless of the “reason”, what school kiddie wouldn’t take a day off from school if there were no consequences?

  6. Jeffery says:

    Con Men and conservabloggers have no problems encouraging 17 yr olds to fight and die in wars that Con Men support but are too cowardly to join themselves. Now you call them names for protesting getting shot at in school.

    Cons: Hypocrites and cowards

  7. Jeffery says:

    How dare these kids complain about getting shot at.

    #ConMenHaveReachedANewLow… For Now

  8. Jl says:

    Actually, the hypocrisy would be in sending young men to war (voluntarily, of course), to use firearms, all the while trying to take those same firearms out of the hands of those same young men who stay home

    Let’s be fair.
    I doubt more than a relative handful of kids ate tide pods. The media created it as a thing by overdramatizing it. We should not make national policy based on outlier events….. (let that sink in).
    Kids have always thought they were so smart. And it’s just a coincidence that they always came up with exactly the same ideas that their (communist) teachers had. Just a coincidence. And just a coincidence that the kids that have more conservative ideas don’t make the news.
    It’s a bit off topic, but I’d be happy to see our country outlaw the draft for everyone and raise the enlistment age to 21. Too young to own a gun, too young to carry one. And raise the voting age to 21 also. If you are too young to be trusted with important issues like self defense and national defense, then your opinions about other things are likely poorly thought through and just parroting your favorite (communist) teachers. Looks like we have come full circle. Or we could follow the Obama administration rule and set that age at 26. It will make it harder for Democrats to get elected, but if it saves just one child it will be worth it.

    the prefesser drops his kimono…

    It will make it harder for Democrats to get elected

    Why not just do what tRump wants? Make him president for life, with his children to follow up. A bold conservative president to run everything.
