Another incredibly stupid Kamala Harris tweet, this one about children and government

[Ed. – Two days ago, she demonstrated her tenuous grasp on how the law and justice work. This time, she tweets out ‘Children are our nation’s future. We must listen to them about what they care about and give them a voice in our government.’]

Children should not have a voice in our government. Children are children. They are innocent; they are wonderful. They are also incapable of fully rational thought, thoroughly uncivilized, and completely driven by immediate emotional response.

Which, come to think of it, may be why Harris wants kids to vote. Or something.

But there’s actually something deeper at play here. The Left has demonstrated an unceasing willingness to use children as political pawns recently, whether using them as spokespeople for political views or as excuses for more government interventionism. That’s part of a double game. On the one hand, leftists suggest that children are helpless and innocent, and must be protected from the horrific predations of their conservative parents; on the other hand, they suggest that children are capable of fully developed decisionmaking. This leads the Left to a rather convenient solution: they must step in as guardians for the children in order to allow the children to exercise their decisionmaking prowess free of parental oppression.
