Liberals Furious Over New Children's Book
New kids 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 childrens 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 theyre 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.

Oh, I love it. How Great.
How's that, by raping young girls, 'renting' your vehicles to Hamas to use in attacks against Israel, taking bribes from Oscar to keep Grover from kicking his a**...?
Not me. I hope it becomes a serious.
"I so need to get this book for my kids."
THat was the FIRST thing I thought when I read the title.
It is going in my son's stocking. : )
"Prominent liberals liken it to Nazi propaganda,"
Phew. Must have taken up both of their combined brain cells to think up that one.
Looks like a great book to me. As Jack Nicholson would say, "They can't handle the truth!"
Hell, I want to read it myself.
Won't she chase you with the pancake turner? :)
THANKS....I just bought 3 for Christmas presents!!!
This will be a million copy seller. What a great idea.
Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed
Shouldn't that read?
Help! Mom! There Are Liberals In My Bed
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters
You missed one.
The libs are afraid of this kind of thing because it is in the public schools that they have had their most success. Children are naturally idealistic so the left takes adavantage of their ignorance. This is great, conservatives need to offer counterpoints to the leftist agenda. I routinely explain high taxes to my children as being no different than a schoolground bully taking your money to buy him and his friends candy and that true charity involves having the choice to say yes or no to a request not just taking something because it is for a "good cause".
Too small by half.
Can't be Hillary.
No black crusty.
I almost forgot this one.
great reading for your class room!
One, just ONE!, book about liberals and they go bonkers.
What a bunch of whiny assclowns.
Then the UN peacekeepers stand aside as the red muppets hack the blue muppets with machetes.
