Children"s Author: Warn Kids About Liberals
Tue Sep 13, 3:00 AM ET
(PRWEB) - Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2005 - The tragedy of Hurricane Katrina has exposed an ugly truth about liberals, and parents need to teach this to their kids, according to the author of a controversial upcoming children"s book.
Katharine DeBrecht the author of the soon-to-be-released "Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed" (Kids Ahead; hardcover: $15.95; ISBN 0976726904) dismisses the notion that parents should not talk to their young kids about politics. If anything, she claims, the behavior of liberals following the flooding of New Orleans shows that parents with traditional values need to take a hands-on approach to making sure their kids aren"t bombarded by left-wing messages.
"Liberals don"t hesitate in pushing their extremist ideology," says DeBrecht, the mother of three and a co-captain of her state"s Security Moms for Bush. "Their actions in the wake of the tragedy in New Orleans shows this only too well."
In support of her point, DeBrecht asserts that as soon as New Orleans" levees burst liberals set out to exploit the tragedy. She notes that Clinton adviser Sidney Blumenthal immediately blamed President Bush for the flooding, Jesse Jackson claimed black residents were abandoned because of conservatives" racism, and columnist Robert Kennedy Jr. argued that opposition to the Kyoto treaty on global warming caused the hurricane. Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan even used the tragedy to argue against America"s liberation of Iraq.
"As crass as they have been in exploiting the tragedy in the Gulf Coast," adds DeBrecht, "they have been equally aggressive in exploiting America"s children. From pro-socialist stories like "Rainbow Fish" to attacks on traditional values like "King & King," liberals have been pushing books with their extremist philosophy into our classrooms and school libraries unabated for years. Conservative parents have to do what they can to make sure their kids hear the other side of the story."
Although its official publication date is still a week away, "Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed" has already made waves in the typically staid world of children"s publishing. The announcement of the book caused an uproar among liberal commentators, with many claiming the book teaches children to hate. The full-color illustrated story tells of two brothers who open a lemonade stand only to encounter a Ted Kennedy character who taxes away their profits and a pants-suit clad Hillary Clinton look-alike who outlaws sugary drinks.
"Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed" will be available in bookstores nationwide on September 20.

Don't forget Care Bear Harmony Bear!
Ewww, any picture of big blue balls and any Clinton is just tooo....
My 8 year old wants to know why homeless people don't just get a job?
I love it when conservatives start hitting back using the liberals' own tools.
Go read the reviews on Amazon. The attack dogs have been at it a while already!
didja see this one? lol!
OH MY WORD!! Releases on my son's 5th birthday!! This is a MUST have for my family, though I think my older kids (and I) might get a better kick out of it than birthday boy. Tremendous thanks for posting this ~ what would I do without FR....
Thanks for this post.
Can't W8 to find the book.
What a bombshell in childrens' publishing!!!
As opposed to, say, telling kids that conservatives want to take away their school lunches. That's love, of course.
Heads up, guys. Those of you with kids might want to look into this one.
When my 14 year old first visited Toronto with me, he asked me the same thing. I told him everybody got to choose for himself if he'd work or not, and they had decided they didn't want to. So there they were on the street. He just shook his head.
It doesn't pay as well.
I'm raising two young Republicans so imagine my shock when my young 3rd grade son brought home his library book this week "Lu and the Swamp Ghost" written by none other than James Carville~!!! I did a DOUBLE TAKE this morning before I had my first cup of coffee when I saw it laying next to his backpack. Most of the illustrations are just AWFUL and the little kid has this really u-g-l-y high forehead hairline and the story goes on about the Depression and has a variety of swamp critters and mosquitos.
