Protecting perceived “rights” of dirtbags more important than protecting kids from violence in the home
By Chris Ingram
Earlier this week I wrote about the murder of a nine-year-old little girl whose murder was allegedly at the hands of her mother’s boyfriend. Today I went on Fox News Live to talk about a solution to this problem that I proposed in my column (see link to video below).
Liberal do-gooders and ACLU-loving types (inlcluding Tampa’s La Gaceta newspaper) are already up in arms — preferring to protect the liberties of evil-doers over the rights of innocent children from being the victims of preventable crimes caused by people who live in their homes.
Of course the thing these liberals fail to acknowledge is that nothing in my proposal is mandatory.
No one absolutely has to submit to a background check.
No one will be forced to take a parenting and an anger management class.
No one is going to stomp on anyone’s rights.
No, all this legislation would do is require you to do those things if you want to accept public assistance (aka: welfare). If you don’t want to submit to the checks, or if necessary, take the courses, fine. Dirtbags in the home it is. But you won’t get a dime of public money unless you take those very reasonable steps to protect kids.

Liberals be damned. Let’s start protecting our kids.
