Liberals Furious Over New Children's Book (“Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed”)

Liberals Furious Over New Children's Book

New kid’s book “Liberals Under My Bed” becomes lightning rod for controversy. Prominent liberals liken it to Nazi propaganda, but conservative author laughs off allegations.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2005 –- Liberals all over the country are up in arms over a new children’s book that portrays cartoon versions of left-wing icons Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy taxing and regulating a lemonade stand.

“Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed” (Kids Ahead; hardcover: $15.95; ISBN 0976726904) hits bookstore shelves today, but author Katharine DeBrecht has already found herself under fire from liberals. MSNBC host Ron Reagan was incensed over the book and scolded DeBrecht on his cable television show. Fox News host Alan Colmes claimed the book exists for the purpose of “brainwashing.” Democratic Underground, a popular liberal Web site, named DeBrecht to its “Top 10 Conservative Idiots” list. And Daily Kos, the most trafficked left-wing blog, likened the book to Nazi propaganda.

In spite of the unflattering comparisons to Hitler, “Liberals Under My Bed” author DeBrecht is nonplussed by the allegations.

“What else would you expect from liberals?” shrugs DeBrecht, a mother of three and former co-captain of Security Moms for Bush. “Liberals have been foisting their ideological agenda on our kids for years, and now they’re beside themselves that someone would stand up to them. Evidently books about socialist fish and gay kings are OK, but a story about hard work and self-reliance is too extreme.”

DeBrecht asserts that no liberals have protested the presence of books such as “Rainbow Fish” (where a fish is hectored into giving away his beautiful scales so that all the fish look the same) and “King & King” (where two princes marry each other and adopt a little girl) in classrooms. She also points to the prohibition on prayer in school, attacks on the Boy Scouts, opposition to school choice, and the recent court ruling banning the Pledge of Allegiance because it contained the phrase “under God” as evidence of a liberal agenda targeting kids.

“Evidently liberals oppose parents who believe in traditional values having a book that will help them teach those values to their children,” says DeBrecht. “But, then again, liberals oppose anything that supports religion, traditional families, and the free market. Those institutions are obstacles to their goals of eliminating personal responsibility and establishing a welfare state.”

“Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed” -- which features full-color illustrations by award winning artist Jim Hummel -- tells of two brothers who open a lemonade stand. Their plans to save up their hard earned profits to buy a swing set go awry when a Ted Kennedy character taxes away their profits and a pants-suit clad Hillary Clinton look-alike outlaws sugary drinks.

A Hillary Clinton look-alike regulates a lemonade stand in the new children's book "Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed."


A Ted Kennedy look-alike and a trouble-making donkey are just two of the colorful villains from the new children's book "Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed."

Liberals are upset about Kennedy/Clinton likeness's in a children's book. But Depicting Bush as Hitler in art museums is OK!

Democrats must begin to realize it's a new world, ABC/CBS/NBC/CNN do not rule the airwaves anymore.

The reactionary leftist response to this: CENSORSHIP.

The conservative response: write a funnier, better book in response.

I'll buy them. Now they want to CENSOR an author? What about "Heather has two mommies?"

They can dish it out but they can't take it. Just shows what their agenda is all the time. I hope this book goes to the number one best seller. It will and I'll sure as heck do my part to see it gets there by buying as many as I can!

What do they call it when they take our tax dollars and use them to put Kofi Annan on Sesame Street -- where he intervenes wisely in a disagreement among Muppets, and they all end up shouting: "We solve our probelms the UN WAY!!"

Anyone remember that moronic woman who wrote a book called "No, George, NO!". Treating adults as children and children as adults, by trying to simplify everything into a child's viewpoint. Not that I read it, but it was fine with liberals.

Well, if these doorknobs are complaining, then Ms. DeBrecht hit the nail squarely on the head.

I love the sound of Liberals squealing in the morning. ;)

One of the "characters"...Congresswoman Cluckton

Congresswoman Clunkton is a star in the Liberaland Socialist Party (LSP) and a multimillionaire from class action lawsuits. Her most famous suit was the class action lawsuit against Burgers, Inc. in which 80% of the population of Liberaland sued the Burgers Inc. hamburger chain for $1 Trillion claiming they did not know that eating too many cheeseburgers made them fat. Rep. Clunkton received billions of dollars in legal fees while her clients received $100.00 each. As a result, all hamburger chains in Liberaland, including Burgers, Inc., closed their doors for business. Black market cheeseburgers are now smuggled in from neighboring lands.

I just went to Amazon and bought two of them. It is almost as much fun reading the reviews. An excerpt from a typical one: "I don't know, but it seems like most of the children (at least here in Amerikka) are murdered by religious whacko parents and who also tend to be rightwingers.

If I were this author's kid, I'd be fearful of the nutjob sleeping in the next room."

Oh well, it's obviously Bush's fault.

Concise.

LOL, I was just there myself. It's getting creamed in the reviews -- only 1-1/2 stars out of 5.

Maybe liberals should grow up and take responsibility for what they do. They're not above criticism.

I grew up in a liberal family, but things have changed. Back then (early 60's), even for most liberals, foul language, pre marital sex, homosexuality...were taboo. My ultra liberal mother actually washed my mouth out with soap when I said an especially bad word to her. She also whisked me and my brother away quickly when a couple of teenage boys she thought were queer started talking to us at the beach. I received several spankings and she used a steel pancake turner against my bare arse. She did not sing kumbaya while spanking!!!

She is still alive and has changed to conform with modern liberal thinking. I am glad I grew up when liberals were at least partially sane.

The title of this book cracks me up....I gotta get one and send it to my mother for Christmas....yeeehawwwww!
