On March 22nd, Steven Crowder was live at SMU. After the show, a young man who identified as a protest sign asked if he should have kids in a time when you are accosted for your believes. Crowder at one point states that “Fear is not bad, how you handle it is.”
I know all of you are afraid. I have been too. You think then when I took the petition to appeal at the Court of Queens Bench, the first challenge of it’s kind in Canada, that I wasn’t afraid? Do you think the School District didn’t WANT me to be afraid? Why do you think they said they were going to come after me for ‘hours of time’ spent on evaluating the petition? Why do you think they threatened a teacher who witnessed the petition? How about the ridiculous accusation that somehow I was defaming an institution and a policy? They did this because, like every corrupt and dictatorial governing body in human history, they know that fear is the most likely tool to keep the populace in line.
So how do you know if you are handling the fear correctly? The way I measure it, is are you brave enough to risk your own health and reputation to protect and serve another, or are you taking the cowards route of saving your own skin?
John 15:13 – Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
If you are able to overcome your fear, to help another, than I say you are handling the fear correctly. Who is more deserving of selfless bravery than your children? Who better to stand up to than those too cowardly to protect your children from those who wish to harm or use them?
Don’t forget, most times, they are more afraid of you, (or their superiors) than you are of them. Paranoia is fear on steroids, and who is more paranoid than a dictator afraid of losing their power. When you stand up to a bully, he realizes that fear can no longer be used against you, and he is the one who becomes afraid. There is no greater evidence of this, than to see how vilely they came after the Include Parents campaign, and the level of fear that was expressed at the thought of myself getting elected to the School Board. (They were really sweating that one.)
Take courage fellow parent, and don’t take garbage from anyone. Your children are quite literally your birthright. Literally yours, by birth, and no sycophantic bureaucrat has any right to tell you how to raise them, especially when they want to subject them to abusive ideology like prepubescent transgenderism.
Take courage, or you just might find you have no children or grand children; whether by fear, by abusive sterilization, by suicide, or by tyrannical kidnapping.
