As a kid, my old man smacked me in the back of the head so hard I had a headache for the rest of the day. He did this all because I gave our paper boy the finger after he threw a rolled-up paper, hitting me in the mouth.
Dad later told me that expected better from me, despite the fact that we both knew the paper boy had done it on purpose. It’s a lesson I didn’t soon forget.
But now ‘flying the bird’ is being encouraged by the so-called anti-immigration group, ‘Deport Racism,’ who oppose Donald Trump. In their latest video, a young boy and girl are seen shouting words like “motherfuckers,” “fuck,” and “dick,” as well as other Spanish profanities.
At one point, one young boy raises a middle finger to the camera while he holds a sign reading, “Deport this.” While the kids obviously think being allowed to do this sort of stuff on camera is fun, the adults ought to be ashamed for misusing a child in such a way.
Unfortunately, they’re not.
And don’t try telling claiming, “But you don’t understand, it’s a cultural thing…” There are Latino and Hispanic parents all across the U.S., who, if they caught their son or daughter doing this, would get the ass-whooping of a lifetime.
In the end, it’s a societal thing and America is falling from the inside out because of such rot.
