Many people have a difficult time with the fact that child abuse is considered criminal or even taboo in this country. Charles Barkley defended Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson for brutally beating his son with a switch, by saying, “every black parent in the south” does it. Others are defending Peterson, saying it’s just normal parenting. Sean Hannity, on his show on Tuesday, pondered whether the NFL’s disciplining of Peterson is government overreach.

His argument is that, somehow, the NFL is the government and by punishing Peterson, the government, who apparently gives away birth control, abortions and gay sex instructions like candy, is being hypocritical. See if you can keep up with that leap of logic.

Of course, Hannity first blames it on liberals, “I gotta tell you, this is my problem with liberals. You guys want to tell parents what they can and cannot do. Is it going to become illegal if a parent teaches the politically correct view that being gay is not normal? Why should kids be allowed to get birth control at school?”

His liberal guest correctly responded, “This isn’t government overreach. This is the cops enforcing the law and you’re taking Adrian Peterson’s side.”

Another person states, “He has a right to discipline his child,” which no one is denying, but when a child is sent to the hospital with visible marks, that’s clearly abuse.

His guest went for the most relevant point when he remarked the private corporation, the NFL,”has the right to discipline Adrian Peterson.”

Hannity added, “Do parents have the right to instill their values in their children?”

Yes, Sean Hannity, they do, even if they are bigots. They don’t have the right to put a child’s life in danger, though.
