Hudson TV received the following Op-Ed piece from New Jersey GOP State Committeeman, and Hudson County resident, Joshua Sotomayor Einstein this afternoon. It was written by Petra Ghaly, a high school student and teenage Republican from Hudson County.
It very clearly spells out this young woman’s view on why our nation is the way it is today, squarely putting blame on “adults” for not leading many children on the “proper” path as they are growing up. It is worth a read:
Open Letter To the “Adults”
You’re teaching my generation that they’re above the law and as a result, they’re shamelessly breaking the law. You’re teaching my generation that they’re entitled and as a result, they have no work ethic. You’re teaching my generation that the world revolves around them while handing them participation trophies and as a result, they think they’re special to the rest of the world the same way they’re special to mommy and daddy. You’re teaching my generation that it is braver to curse out a man in uniform than it is to put on that same uniform and as a result, you’ve raised cowards with no sense of duty.
You’re teaching my generation that their feelings outweigh the facts and a result, you’ve raising a generation to be incompetent, to be quickly triggered, and lacking the ability to make a sound argument they can defend intellectually. You’re teaching my generation that instead of conversing when disagreeing, they can shut others out, send death threats their way, and attempt harming them in every possible way—all while teaching fake tolerance.
You’re teaching my generation that they can spit out hateful terms like “racist,” “sexist,” “homophobe,” and anything that ends with __phobic or __ist and left wing administrations will immediately side with them because no one wants to be labeled a racist or a sexist. As a result, they are abusing and using the labels all while cheapening true racism, sexism, and homophobia among other things.
You’re teaching my generation that Hollywood love and sex is what they need to feel fulfilled. As a result, unplanned pregnancies and abortions happen at startling high rates, picking wrong partners seems to be the new normal, children grow up with immature parents, divorce rates are around 40-50% which inspired many to back away from the idea of marriage as a whole causing the marriage rate to decrease, and redefining the way my generation views dating and relationships altogether.
You’re teaching my generation that it’s okay to be undetermined, unfocused, and undecided because mommy and daddy will always be there and as a result, they don’t know how to act when they’re living outside of their college bubbles and they don’t know what to do when they realize mommy and daddy can’t get them that job promotion.
You’re teaching my generation that everything is one click away and as a result, you’ve raised an impatient generation. You’re teaching my generation that going viral is the purpose of life and as a result, instead of competing for success, they’re competing to see who can come up with the dumbest viral trend. You’re teaching my generation that it’s “smart” to cheat their way out of things and as a result, you’ve raised an intellectually and morally disadvantaged generation. You’re teaching my generation that it’s braver to burn our flag than it is to sacrifice anything for that very same flag and as a result, your killing our patriotism and raised a generation who’s willing to protest the death of terrorists but remains silent on national security threats and attacks against our great military and country.
You’re programming my generation to react negatively to specific words and as a result, great ideas are shut down and so are the ones delivering them. You’re teaching my generation that they don’t need God and as a result, they lead corrupt and unfaithful lives in their relationships, in their work, and in general.
Blatant leftist indoctrination on our campuses, movies, sports, Hollywood, the media, and the censorship of commonsense leaning views in classrooms, social media, and through their ever existing but newly labeled “cancel culture” that aims to “cancel” dissent, combined with failed parenting tactics have almost signed a death sentence for my generation. Yet you continue voting out-of-touch and extremist leftists into power. As a student who has attended public school, as a teenager who is on social media, and as someone who follows celebrities and athletes online, I can assure you one thing—my generation isn’t opposed to commonsense ideas; it’s simply not exposed to them.
