You’re right, you can’t blame what those kids are doing on the American President. Those are hats, and lots of young people take those hats as a joke. You wouldn’t blame Elon Musk if someone did a hit and run in a Tesla now would you?
These kids come from a Catholic school, already indicating that they come from somewhere more financially secure due to those schools being almost as expensive as private schools. They are in a position of privilege therefore it’s easy for them to stray.
If you want to blame someone I also wouldn’t blame the parents straight away, because I do not know them.
What I will say however is simple, in modern society there has been a complete degredation of the family unit. Kids don’t often look up to their parents anymore, instead they look towards peers and strangers on the internet. Likewise their behaviour is not representative of Catholic values, so we can’t blame the school.
The kids did this, so they are the only ones who are accountable at the moment for their actions.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves and try to judge parents, presidents and traditional authority institutions for the behaviour of a couple of punk kids.
