  1. How does govt kidnap children without a rights violation? Govt has no claim over citizens if they respect others rights.

    It seems to me if parental rights are a REAL THING then interferences would require a criminal, not civil, infringement. And not just allegation, it would need a jury verdict.

    In what case can you deprive ppl of rights? crime, martial law, or gender bigotry (VAWA). All other behavior falls outside govt discrimination. If govt does act then it violates equal protection.

    What we have now is a superstate with executive appointees that have legally binding expert opinion.

    When opinion is elevated to law noone is ‘innocent until proven guilty’.

    “For the children”, this is how the child was removed without any criminal charges being filed.

    If the offense isnt a crime than parental rights preside over the situation, that is unless an expert decrees your rights void. Nice ‘due process’ by jury of peers. Meanwhile real civil rights of parents are trampled.

  2. This is just another example of the fascist police state that we are allowing to be built around us. A toddler repeating words that most of us would find offensive is not a crime. It may be morally repugnant, but that a religious issue. Many of the laws in the U.S. are based on religion or personal moral beliefs (the equivalent of religion), America’s version of Sharia Laws.
