Why Our Kids Should Know That We Are At War With Islamic Terror

Written by Judy Rice on December 12, 2015

As the world grows darker and darker around us, it is truly irresponsible and dangerous to turn a blind eye to the increasing violence and to not explain to kids what is truly happening. By now, it should be obvious to anyone with an ounce of common sense that something strange is going on. You have to be living under a rock in America if you don’t acknowledge that the majority of mass killings happening now are indeed being performed by Radical Islamic Jihadists. War is raging around us whether we want to acknowledge it or not and our current government administration isn’t helping at all. In fact, our President is making all of America very vulnerable and no real, honest expert on Islamic terrorism would disagree. Americans are in danger.

The common denominator in all these killings is Islam, “The Religion of Peace.” To not acknowledge that we are already at war with Islamic Terrorists is completely irresponsible. To try to convince any child that this is not true is completely ignorant and irresponsible. We are putting our own children in danger when we lie to them, especially because we are too lazy to really look into the very distinct possibility, that maybe, just maybe, all of us who are shouting: Islam is dangerous, might possibly be right?! Americans… we are smarter than this.

What drives me truly insane is when I see adults brainwashing kids. It pains me when adults that a kid trusts pass on information that just isn’t true. This makes me want to slap the stupidity right out of them. We have access to all kinds of information, yet, too many lack the common sense that is necessary to solve the problem… Many are literally teaching this lack of common sense to our youth. At this point in time, every responsible adult should have some serious questions about Islam. Isn’t it about time we all take a serious look into some of the claims? We live in America and have access to Qurans, Bibles and all kinds of resources that can answer our questions.

The day after the attacks in France there was a video going around (from PetitJournalYannBarthes) entitled “French father and son have the most precious conversation.” As I watched the video, I didn’t for one second feel the “Awww” that the title suggested. A father in France is holding his young son as a reporter asks the child if he understands what happened there and why those people did it. The child says that the people are very, very mean because they have guns and can shoot them. He was also concerned that they might need to move from France. The child was on the right track and his own father misleads him! His dad assures him that they aren’t moving because bad guys are everywhere and France is their home. The dad’s ridiculous reply is that the bad guys got guns, but we have….flowers! The kid responds appropriately and says that flowers don’t do anything! His dad “corrects him” and tells him that the flowers DO protect them! The dad tells his kid that the flowers and candles help them to remember those that died (true) and to protect them (FALSE). The confused looking child finally reluctantly agrees with his father. A reporter was smiling and nodding the whole time, while the father successfully brainwashed his own child on film. How is this considered loving and what is it teaching this child? How exactly do flowers and candles protect us? The kid obviously knew this sounded strange, but he believed his dad.

Why not give the child some real comfort and tell him that the good guys could get the bad guys if they had guns? Oh, yeah! That probably won’t happen because there is a gun ban in France. Maybe the citizens are supposed to just throw the flowers and candles when another attack occurs? Maybe police should be armed with bouquets and candlesticks? When the shootings happened in California, shortly after France, our president immediately wanted to grab our guns! Well, then lead by example, Mr. President. Why not let your security folks be armed with flowers and candles? Show us how this is done! Good leaders lead by EXAMPLE!

Why not be honest with our children? Yes, dear children, Islam is not a religion of peace and we need guns to defeat them. Devout followers of Islam really are very, very mean and are commanded by their god to kill us. Islam is evil and that should be blatantly obvious to every responsible adult, including “peaceful Muslims” by now. “Peaceful Muslims” should be the loudest protestors with the most questions for the radicals. Why aren’t they?

The same mind-set that welcomed Islam in France is welcoming it here in America. We all know what just happened in California. There is much more to come if we don’t take action. Educating our youth is an important part of the action. America needs to teach children how to keep Islam out of the United States and to protect themselves! This can only happen when adults get wiser and start taking action to stop the influence of Islam in America and start seriously opposing any more gun control.
