“Isn’t it ironic that the very same hippies, anarchists and flower children of the 1970’s (and now their grown up daughters) are exactly what they accused the returning Vietnam War veterans of being: ‘baby killers’. There were 1,300,000 living, human fetuses who were killed in their mother’s womb in 2011. The Vietnam veterans were never proud of having to kill civilians during the war. The ‘baby killers’, on the other hand, are proud of it. They call themselves, ‘pro-choice’.”

“Congratulations to Brophy on their win over Chandler last Friday. Unfortunately, their coach decided it would be a good idea to start the game by yelling at the CHS band, who were running a little late finishing their pregame show. The ‘classy’ players followed his lead by flipping off the drum majors and rushing the field, pushing around the clarinet players, most of whom are girls! I’m sure you are proud of the way you’ve represented your school and the Catholic Church!”

“June asks Ward’s permission before spending more than her ‘allowance’ on grocery’s, driving the car or disciplining the boys (but usually she feels inadequate and waits for Ward to handle it). Sexist. Eddie is always talking about the need to ‘pound’ any guy that gets in his way, steals his girl etc. Beaver frequently comes home with torn clothes and black eyes from fighting. Implied violence. On the rare occasions minority’s are shown, they are not portrayed as equals, when native american artifacts are found, disparaging remarks about ‘savages’ are spoken. Racist. As bad as today’s shows, no, but not the wholesome utopia those reminiscing over it believe.”
