The Trashification of America

“Family values” in the Obama Age:

Two women face charges after an infant was left in a hot car outside of a strip club in Tennessee as the child’s mother was onstage for an audition, according to multiple reports.
Kelsey McMurtry, 24, was auditioning at Deja Vu Showgirls in downtown Nashville while her daughter sat outside in a car with the windows rolled up around 4 p.m. Thursday, police told WKRN. Passersby noticed the girl and called authorities.
In a warrant, officials said it was 72 degrees outside when officers arrived and temperatures inside the car had likely topped 100 degrees. The girl was wearing a heavy coat and drenched with sweat, WKRN reported. Witnesses estimated she spent at least 30 minutes in the car.
She was taken to a hospital for treatment, where the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services responded to care for her.
At the scene an officer spoke with McMurtry’s friend, 19-year-old Summer Taylor, who said she had an eye on the child while her mother auditioned, according to WSMV. However, witnesses told police she never left the strip club in the 30 minutes the child was outside.
Police arrested McMurtry and Taylor on charges of child neglect. Authorities also charged McMurtry with criminal impersonation after she allegedly lied about her name in an apparent effort to avoid an outstanding warrant, WSMV reported.

(Via Memeorandum.) Here’s a question: Does this infant not have a father? Or does Kelsey McMurtry have no relatives who could help her? Of course, we are two generations into the Welfare State’s project of dismantling the traditional family, so it’s possible Kelsey McMurtry’s parents and siblings and aunts and uncles are all part of the debris.

This is the human wreckage created by liberalism — people without functional kinship networks, without moral values, with no sense of purpose or meaning in their lives. In other words, Democrat voters.

    Sadly, the child was destined for some sort of horrific life, even if this incident had not come to the attention of the authorities. Imagine such a baby’s life: Mom “working” until 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning and sleeping during the day, most likely strung out on various chemicals to kill the emotional pain. As it is, its life will not be much better with state intervention. An endless succession of foster homes of varying degrees of decency. If the girl finds a decent foster home, the state will undoubtedly move her if the foster parents become too emotionally involved out of some misbegotten wish to reunite the little girl with her mother.

    As you point out, all of this is a result of the the social changes wrought by Progressives. When traditional marriage and family are vilified, this is the result. You asked does the child have a father. Of course, the answer is “biologically, ‘yes.'” The next question is whether the mother even knows who it is.

    Aside: I think we can dispense with any argument that “sex work” is a “victimless” endeavor.

    Aren’t these women just your typical Trump voters who can’t find a job because illegals stole them all?

    If government is all of us, maybe Obama should be indicted, as our Great Father? Or, more likely, trillions in the war on poverty has led to more of what Klansmen (D) Robert Byrd would declare “white niggers.”

    What did Charles Murray say, when whites passed 30 % illegitimacy with blacks at 75% and Latinos at 55%, the country would be in a state of irreversible decline. Welcome to the new America, a couple of wigger ho’s making heroin change at a strip club.

    I’ve never believed that, by the way. As I’ve mentioned, about 30 years ago, I worked briefly as a strip-club DJ, and dated a couple of strippers, and anyone who wants to argue about the nature of that business need not waste words with me.

    While I am no prude about such things, and my conservatism is in many ways quite libertarian, we ought to be realistic. Strip clubs are not a morally neutral enterprise, and if we have any sense of right and wrong, good and evil, we know which side of the balance “sex work” is on. No mother or father would ever want their daughters to work as strippers, nor would we want our sons to be the kind of men who are the clients of “sex work.”

    My disclaimer — I was once a Democrat — is not meant to excuse or justify my reckless youth, but rather to explain that I am directly familiar with sin in a way I prayerfully hope my children would never be. A lot of good friends of mine went down that road and never came back (at least two guys I went to high school with died in prison) and having managed to escape myself, i am here to warn anyone who will listen what dangers lie in that direction.

    For starters, we need to alter government policies that encourage family breakup.

    It could very well be that some things are just magnets for trashy people — no matter how much we destigmatize and mainstream them.

    I honestly question whether anything can be done. At this point, “dysfunctional family” and “single mother” have practically become redundant terms.

    Yeah, because everybody knows in their hearts that the “destigmatization” and mainstreaming of such things is bogus. Trash attracts more trash, I suppose.

    This situation, while partly due to easily-available contraception and the change in attitudes this has brought about, is encouraged by generous subsidies to unwed mothers, and mild penalties for men who ignore their responsibilities.

    It would cause some pain to change these factors, but in the long run we’d all be better off.

    Mild penalties? I watched a Child support enforcement agency extradite a dude from Columbia who got an American girl pregnant then fled the country.

    I know many child support enforcement agencies are simply so overwhelmed with caseloads they can only prosecute the most egregious offenders at all.

    I know another guy who told the judge flat out after getting yet another year in prison for nonpayment. It was like the 3rd or 4th year he would be serving for no support

    “Your honor, you might as well lock me up for life. I been doing dope since 15 and I ain’t quitting anytime soon and I sure as hell ain’t giving that beech a dime ever, no matter how long you lock me up . I don’t have to work, I can hustle. ”

    Some dudes just won’t pay no matter what you do to them.

    If what you mention were the rule rather than the exception half the problem would be solved.

    As for those who won’t pay, that’s what hard labor was created to handle.

    I believe Florence King coined the phrase, ‘white trash of all races’.

    Being a swamp-slut is a equal-opportunity career open to all races, creeds, and blood types!

    This wouldn’t happen except for the bastard conservatives that won’t let women have access to free birth control and then won’t allow abortions and then won’t fund 100 % free daycare for stripper chicks that get knocked up.

    Illegitimacy is rampant and considered normal now among the working class and lower middle class of all races. There’s no coming back from this.

    Back in the early 80s CBN had a documentary on pornography. One woman, the partner of a pornographer, said she would be proud for her daughter to be featured on the centerfold of Hustler or Penthouse.
    Alas, they are out there.
