The Washington Post was lampooned this week for publishing a “social justice guide for young children” that aims to push elements of the Black Lives Matter and #MeToo movements to children as young as three months old.
“Parents: Do you want your three-year-old to be a joyless social justice drone by the time he gets to kindergarten? Would you like little Pat to be the puritanical scolding of the playground, sucking on the fun, life and the variety? of every elementary school interaction? Your friends at the Washington Post have a compilation of books and programs for young children – everything you need to make sure your child is never overwhelmed by excess popularity, “said the editor-in-chief of the Media Research Center, Matt Philbin wrote. “Actually.”

Philbin eviscerated an article in Natalie Jesionka’s Post last week titled “Social Justice for Young Children: These New Books and Programs Start the Conversation Early.” Jesionka wrote that “experts say it’s never too early and that a new wave of tools and resources can help start the conversation,” but Philbin disagreed with the idea.
“And what tools! Flashcards against racism, books on intersectionality, a music class ‘that develops understanding of gender and personality’. Wouldn’t you like to tuck the little one in with a relaxing read of ‘Antiracist Baby’ or ‘Woke Baby’? Best of all, Jesionka says ‘A drag queen tale will soon be a TV show,’ ”Philbin wrote.
“What about those ‘experts’ who urge you to politicize your baby? Jesionka talks to a woman who sells ‘a curated box of toys, books and curricula that aims to dismantle prejudice for children as young as 2’ . (Take that genderless potato head!) “Philbin continued. “Consult others who say ‘that children develop implicit prejudices from 3 months of age, and by 4 years they are categorizing and developing stereotypes'”.
In fact, the Post article promoted music classes, flashcards and a variety of books that “discuss intersectionality and broaden representation” along with “short videos that teach parents and young children about anti-racism ideas.” The feature also included comments from a Canadian woman who founded a company that aims to eliminate prejudice among young children, psychology teachers who study race and social interaction, and the owner of a children’s bookstore that “aligns with her mission to promote black writers, women’s activism and women artists. “

The Post also spoke with “performance artists” with the goal of “increasing exposure to drag, supporting gender-variant children, and creating an inclusive space where everyone feels welcome” and a variety of other experts on the subject.
“Teaching children to be neo-racists. Notice how the assumption in this story is that this is a self-evident good. Not a single source that suggests this has critics,” said journalist Andrew Sullivan. wrote. “None. This is propaganda.”
Author Jordan B. Peterson tweeted the article and joked, “Who’s the wokiest baby? Who’s the wokiest baby?”
