Forcing them to enact that hatred by painting their “feelings,” then intentionally vandalizing a public space with the children’s “hearts” so that someone will have to tear them down, then forcing the children to watch the removal of the “love hearts” is a demonstration of sickness only made more stark by the extremely un-economically oppressed appearance of the crowd. Telling crying three-year olds that the police are taking down their “artwork” because police are bad, violent people — well, that’s just prejudiced hate mongering. These poor guys probably spend at least part of their workdays protecting kids, and anyone who knows a cop knows that it breaks their real hearts whenever they have to witness kids subjected to violence and abuse. What a repulsive thing to do to these policemen.
The sadists of Parents for Occupy Wall Street probably got the idea for the protest from this PBS “anti-bullying” exercise, which similarly forces small children to ritualistically “perform” the emotions of being harmed by others by making paper hearts that express their love, then ritually tearing the hearts to pieces to experience the suffering of victims of bullying. Sick stuff, on the taxpayer’s dime, of course.
Take a good look at these pictures:
