It’s fine by me. Kids are allowed to have and voice an opinion. I don’the understand why Yahoo is getting up tight about it. As the OP said, there were kids singing about politics and about Obama when he was president.
Speaking of which, has anyone seen the Youtube video about a kid singing a parody of “Hey There Delilah,” hoping it would get to Obama and that he would pardon him from detention? It was made waay back in 2009-2010 so it may have been taken down.
Exactly. With David Hogg, he really didn’t ask to be thrown in the political arena, but he was due to a shooting happening at his school. He felt the need to advocate for students, and against gun violence, and while I admire his intentions and his good heart, I don’t necessarily agree with how he is going about it, that government should take a bigger role. The change needs to be initiated by society.
Greta Thunberg is a bit different. I understand that she is very passionate about her cause, and she has Aspergers (I have traits of that myself, but not full-blown). However, she did choose to enter the political arena, which is treacherous- and thus, needs to expect criticism. However, I certainly do not agree with the death threats she’s received, or the personal attacks. It’s important when debating to not resort to those kinds of things. Every American citizen I think wants to see America prosper, because it is their home. However, every one of us has different routes and priorities we should take in order to get there. It makes me uncomfortable to see abortions and single-payer healthcare, for example, but I understand that there are desperate times when one might be needed, such as threat to the mother’s life. I do not think, though, that that should give the green light to legalize abortions whenever and wherever. There needs to be some restrictions, I think, such as getting two physicians’ approval. But let’s a different topic for a different day.
