Did you know that children who attend American Independence Day celebrations are more likely to vote Republican (gasp!) when they grow up?
Don’t tell the Obama regime, otherwise they might concoct a scheme to ban the celebration altogether.
Oops! Too late: the media arm of the Obama regime has already posted the story.
It’s true. Well, almost… Not really. ABC News admits that even the study’s co-author, David Yanagizawa-Drott of Harvard University can’t match up the thesis with the facts. Not to worry folks; like the Christmas stories that proclaim Jesus wasn’t really born on Dec. 25th or that what he said and did can’t be authenticated, this is just another attempt by the anti-American media to belittle you for waving your American flags and celebrating the moral convictions of those who risked life and livelihoods to declare themselves and others free and independent from the tyranny of King George by signing the Declaration of Independence.
According to the story’s author:
One thing not addressed in the report is that nearly every kid in America attends Fourth of July celebrations, but the Republican Party is a minority party.
Minority party? So what’s the problem? If most kids grow up to be Democrats who cares?
Let’s apply a little Philosophy 101 here… If there are fewer registered Republicans in America then certainly the premise must be that there are more registered Democrats.
US voter registration in 2004.
The 2004 census statistics even bear this out. So, if nearly ever kid in America attends an Independence Day celebration in the United States as declared in the story, simply philosophy would suggest that celebrating Independence Day would make one more likely to be Democrat than Republican, even though ABC News declared the exact opposite?
Halfway through the story ABC News printed this joke: “Calls to Democratic officials were not returned because they had left their offices early to celebrate the Fourth of July.”
Really? How did the author of the story know they were out celebrating Independence Day? Come on now: George Stephanoloulos works for ABC News and is one of the Democrat Party’s biggest apologists around! Isn’t he one of the author’s colleagues? Even if he was reluctant to make up a quote I’m sure he could find someone out there to make up some lies about Republicans and Independence Day.
Of course that isn’t why they printed the paragraph. For Liberals, the time off for patriotic or religious holidays has nothing to do with celebrating the memory of the holiday. You don’t believe for a moment that Liberals actually go out and celebrate Independence Day, Christmas, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving or Easter for the rememberances that they are? That’s not the purpose of a holiday for these folks. The purpose of a national holiday for these people is just another paid vacation on the taxpayer’s dime.
As an aside, I thought that children weren’t affected by the things they watched, did or played? We’re always told that the violent video games kids play are perfectly harmless, that they don’t lead kids to violent tendencies, or that the music they listen to doesn’t encourage them to act out in ways that are counter to the morals of a good and just society.
So what’s the worry Mr. and Ms. Liberal? These kids at the Independence Day ceremonies will likely continue the practice of drinking the kool aid you serve up to their older brothers and sisters in college and continue to vote with the premise that government is good, politicians are the only people in America who have your best interests at heart and that freedom and liberty are the archaic, evil and racist outcomes of a bunch of hooligans who dared to break away from the theocratic and despotic regime of King George.
