combating liberalism and other childish notions


Posted by Andrew Roman on March 9, 2009

Lincoln County, West Virginia must be so very proud. Democrat Jeff Eldridge, from the unincorporated town of Big Ugly, is making a name for himself in the legislature by proposing an outright ban of Mattel’s famed Barbie Doll in his state. He doesn’t want them – or any dolls like her – sold in West Virginia anymore. Said Eldridge: “I knew a lot of people were going to joke about it and poke fun at me. I couldn’t get anybody to sign on the bill with me but I said I’m still going to introduce it.”

Crusader alert.

According to the text of the bill itself:

barbieA BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia … relating to banning the sale of “Barbie” dolls and other dolls that influence girls to be beautiful.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

§47-25-1. Unlawful sale of Barbie dolls.

It shall be unlawful in the state to sell “Barbie” dolls and other similar dolls that promote or influence girls to place an undue importance on physical beauty to the detriment of their intellectual and emotional development.

NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to ban the sale of Barbie dolls and other similar dolls.

Liberals simply dumbfound me – although, by now, they shouldn’t. At their very core, with every fiber of their existence, in all facets of life, they sincerely believe that they know what’s best for everyone else. This attempt at nixing the Barbie Doll – which has an icicle’s chance in hell of ever becoming law, but is critically instructive in exemplifying the liberal propensity to want to stick their smoking nostrils in everyone’s business – is yet another glaring illustration of how today’s Leftocrat instinctively moves toward Nanny Statism to cure whatever perceived ills are destroying the fragility of the twenty-first century American. And rest assured, something like this will be attempted again in some form down the road. Leftists plug away and plug away until they finally hit upon the right combination of words, and the most appealing collection of reasons and rationales, to further their otherwise feckless agendas.

Libs operate with a bluster and sense of superiority usually reserved for Hollywood types and MSNBC hosts. Who the hell does Eldridge think he is to measure for all the citizens of West Virginia what qualifies as important or unimportant to girls? And how does he come to the feminized, whine-time conclusion that the importance of physical beauty is potentially detrimental to intellectual and emotional development?

The goal here, obviously, is to make sure that no child anywhere, in any circumstance, for any reason is ever exposed to anything that may upset, hurt, offend, or expose them to the realities of existence on Earth.

I swear on all that is holy that liberals have lost their ever-loving minds. These hyper-sensitive, emotionally fragile, societal basket cases are an embarrassment. These are the same people who say that keeping score at a kids’ sporting events can prove traumatic, or that every child who particpates in any activity is entitled to a certificate just for showing up, or that playing dodge ball at recess can be damaging to the psyches of the less athletically inclined.

Is it any wonder that America is churching out as many emasculated boys and confused girls as it is?

    Eldridge is a disgrace to all West Virginian’s and should hang himself.

  2. legislators had to realize proposing a Barbie ban would cause a big media stir but, then again, maybe this was strategic…
