Many of you will know by now that in one of her interminably long-winded videos with proud Donald Trump supporter Stephanie Oostveen, Angela Fag-Ash Disney revealed that she used to use a t-square to beat her children.
We were shocked on a number of levels: first, that someone who styles herself an opponent of child abuse would lay hands on any child, let alone use a weapon to inflict maximum pain.
Second, Angie professes (long and loud, to anyone who’ll listen) that she is a Christian. Yet she seems blissfully unaware that Jesus Christ promoted kindness and humanity, not attacking children. The phrase ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’ that Angie tosses around with such gay abandon actually comes from the Book of Proverbs, a portion of the Old Testament that Biblical scholars agree reflects not the ‘word of God’ but simply a collection of the values and moral behaviour current at the time of writing.
Short version: God never said anything about beating children with t-squares.
And third, Angie claims to have been abused as a child. As someone who allegedly suffered abuse at the hands of the adults who were supposed to care for her, how can she possibly justify beating her own children, especially using a weapon?
Of course, we shouldn’t be overly surprised at this revelation on Angie’s part. After all, we know that Abraham Christie tortured RD’s children: he punched them hard enough to cause permanent hearing damage, kicked them in the front privates, suffocated them, dragged them from their beds for middle-of-the-night questioning and rehearsal sessions, and poured water over them while they knelt in their underwear.
We also know that he hit them routinely using spoons, which he sometimes heated up for maximum pain; we hear from his step-children that he did the same to them, often to the point where his small victims would soil themselves.
And we know that other Hoaxtead pushers, like Sabine McNeill, routinely support vicious child abusers like the Musas, who beat and tortured their six children using brooms, electrical cords, and hoovers, and gave their one-year-old baby a morphine overdose. Of course, to hear Sabine tell it, these parents were horribly misjudged and hard done by, and should have had their children returned to them…for more torture, we presume.
As Q*Bert notes in the above video, all of this reflects a troubling perspective: these people all seem to believe that children are not actual human beings, but are the ‘property’ of their parents, and as such, that parents are entitled to hurt them in any way they please, for any reason they wish.
How shocking, then, that these same people seem to see paedophilia and child abuse every way they turn…except when they look in the mirror.
