A few weeks ago, I used “The New Abnormal” as the title of an American Spectator column about Sydney Leathers and the Anthony Weiner scandal, and it’s also fairly apt for this example:
“My issue is this. These people are making Kate look like some pervert, some deviant because this happens to be girl/girl. People can deny that all they want, but its the truth. A senior boy would get a pat on the back for dating a freshman girl, it happens ALL the time, its happening at Sebastian High school and every other high school TODAY! . . .”
(Maybe it’s happening to your kids, Kelley, or to the kids of the other scummy no-account trash you seem to associate with, but it’s not happening to my kids, and if I found out it was happening to my kids, somebody would be in big trouble. Excuse me for interrupting. Now I’ll let you keep digging that hole for yourself.)
“Freshman girls, date, go to the prom, have relations with senior boys all the time . . .”
(Now that you bring up this subject, what about the claim that you let Kate’s sister Emily date a 20-year-old when she was only 14? Do you consider that perfectly normal, too?)
“. . . no one calls the boys perverts or deviants. They are making it some sick twisted, and dirty because its a lesbian relationship. BUt its NOT. Its kids, being kids. . . . .”
(You really should proofread your Facebook messages, Kelley. Or were you writing this while drunk?)
“Its 2013, kids are sexting in middle school. . . .”
(And you know this . . . how?)
“Do i like it, or approve NO but it doesn’t make these kids deviants or sex offender come on!! . . .”
(Ungrammatical sentence full of errors come on!!)
“This is a HORRIBLE situation and parents better be praying and getting on board to change these laws because any of you, could be next!!”
Kelley Hunt Smith never mastered basic grammar, and we can’t expect her to employ logic in her arguments, but the combination of bad writing, bad logic and bad morals is frightening.
Even if she believes her own childish “everybody’s doing it” argument, does she expect responsible adults to be persuaded by it?
But does Kelley Hunt Smith actually know any responsible adults?
If her kids were arrested for robbing a liquor store, Kelley Hunt Smith would be arguing, “Well, everybody’s robbing stores nowadays.”
She’s right about one thing, though: Parents “better be praying” — that their kids never get mixed up with skanky trash like Kelley’s kids.
UPDATE: This summarizes my attitude pretty well:
