‘Oh, Honey, I’d Beat the Hell Out of Him With a 2×4’

A Todd Starnes Show caller provided a simple explanation of how she would handle the discipline of her son if he was caught on national television desecrating a World War One memorial.

“Oh, honey, I’d beat the hell out of him with a 2×4,” said Libby from New Bern, North Carolina.

The conversation came about after a New York man reportedly notified police that his 16-year-old son had vandalized the WW1 memorial in Central Park. The NYPD later refuted that report.

Still, many of Todd’s listeners were fired up. Here’s a rush transcript of Todd’s interview with Libby.  Click here to read my new book on how MAGA can save America.

TODD: Let’s go to Libby in New Bern, North Carolina, listening to us on The Talk Station. Libby, what would you do if that had been your son?

CALLER: Well, my son’s 38, and I don’t think he’s ever broken the law, but if he committed a murder or used a weapon like a gun or something, I’d have to turn him in because something would be mentally wrong.

TODD: You do wonder, Libby. You do wonder about these kids that are shooting up the high schools. And, you know, the parents are like, well, you know, we didn’t realize that little Billy had an arsenal in his bedroom. How do you not know that? You’re a parent, for crying out loud.

CALLER: I’ve worked the prison system, and I’ve seen a lot of kids screwed up because their parents didn’t do anything, or their parents were screwed up and they didn’t have, you know, the knowledge to do what they needed to do.

TODD: But you’re saying, you know, would you rather handle it yourself?

CALLER: Oh, honey, I beat the hell out of him with the two by four. You know, he he regret whatever he did. But if he robbed a little old lady or some mess. I’m a little old lady. I, definitely turned him in. Well, no, but.

TODD: This is good to know, Libby. I think your child would be. Would be like, call the police. Give me away from this woman.

CALLER: No, he’s he’s afraid of me anyway. So, I mean, that’s. Yeah, he would definitely, definitely call the police on himself. Probably before based on me.

TODD: Libby. Great call. You sound like a great mom, and I appreciate your calling in. You know, it’s interesting. I think that’s the problem is that there’s. I mean, I love my parents, but when I was a kid, I feared my parents, too, you know, I didn’t. Want to screw up. I don’t want to get in trouble. And I don’t think there’s anything wrong with I think that’s actually healthy. Knowing that your mother could very well beat you upside the head with a two by four, that’s a it’s a real thing.
