If a toddler scarcely out of diapers is this mal-adjusted, what will his future possibly look like?
Police in Minneapolis showed up at an address in St. Paul to serve a warrant in looking for a murder suspect. They encountered a small group of children who gave them a very unpleasant ‘welcome’.
One toddler, outside in his underwear, unleashed a stream of profanity and verbal abuse followed by several attempts to hit the police officer.
Shiela Qualls, of Alpha News, who first published this story here made some somber observations about the significance of this video clip.
It is a foreshadowing of poverty, prison, and even death. It tells the story of children — who through no fault of their own — have been corrupted and abandoned by a system that places no value on the traditional nuclear family.
When Minneapolis police officers showed up in St. Paul last week to execute a search warrant for a murder suspect, they were met by toddlers — some still in diapers — who punched, kicked, cursed, and threw rocks at them. (Alpha News is only publishing 30 seconds of the video, but it goes on for another two minutes.)
The behavior of these children is eerily similar to the behaviors of rioters who burned and looted Minneapolis two years ago.
…What’s the product of grooming children to disrespect police officers and other forms of authority? We are essentially training them to disregard societal norms of behavior and hindering them from achieving success in life. In short, we’re cultivating future criminals.
Add 10 years to the age of these children and their behavior would be deemed delinquent. Add 20 years to their age, and their faces might end up as pictures on T-shirts after a violent encounter with the law. —AlphaNews
These children, sadly, are being set up for failure long before they even set foot in school.
There’s a relevant Nelson Mandela quote for this situation:
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
Mandela would know that fact better than most because the voice for peace he became late in life was entirely different than what he had been in his youth.
Where do we start? How do we break the cycle?
So long as billionaires keep turning grifter ‘thought leaders’ into millionaires by perpetuating messages of victimhood and grievance, it would seem we’re facing an uphill battle.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
