The Kids Of America

January 28, 2008

This is a quote from the About page of a relatively new political blog called YOUTHinkLeft that is run by progressive teenagers:

YOUTHinkLeft.com (YOUTH THINK LEFT) deals with political issues through original content delivered in an online newsmagazine style blog.

They published a great well-researched post last week about the absurd criminalization of ordinary childhood antics and the use of police power–arrest and imprisonment–against unruly children (both characteristics of right-wing authoritarian political regimes). It’ll make your skin crawl.

When PhysioProf is a shrunken old coot, lying on his deathbed croaking out his very last rant at the gibboon-like antics of some smegmatic cockknuckle wingnut loony toon, these kids are gonna be running the fucking place!
