Did you see Children of the Corn, to understand the reference? I suspect you didn't. Yes, the story had a monster, but it wasn't the children, and isn't the point of the reference. The comparison is because in the story, the children were indoctrinated with a horrible belief system, one which drove them to kill their elders - they were to be feared in that they would destroy everyone based upon the bad beliefs they were taught...like this child. This is where you are on bad footing in saying folks are defending the talking head - you don't even understand what the talking head said.
You're equally on bad footing regarding the child. I'm not seeing a lack of empathy for the child - quite the contrary, folks are concerned for her, and others like her, are being used by adults with agendas. The children are emotional cudgels being used to bash the populace into submission where facts cannot justify the action. There is quite a bit of concern that these kids will grow up with more stress and inability to cope with what they imagine is becoming of world as well as their ability to effect that world. Hence, the references to child abuse.

The Klan used a burning cross. The Nazis used an iron cross. Should Christianity abandon the cross as its symbol?
Is the Star of David offensive to Palestinians? Is the keffiyeh offensive to Jews?
Is the Union Jack offensive to Indians? Is the red star/hammer and sickle offensive to the millions of victims of communism? Is the Japanese Rising Sun offensive to Koreans?
Do we ban all those symbols too?
Is any symbol entirely pure?
Are we SERIOUSLY trying to equate a BETSY ROSS FLAG to the ISIS flag? REALLY???
You know, exactly what SNL has been doing for decades.
Would you be so nonchalant if Melissa McCarthy was getting death threats for her Sean Spicer impersonation?
And she’s a grown-ass woman who lives behind a wall and a gate with armed security.
This is a little girl. Prolly goes to public school. Her parents could be fired if they’re doxxed. She might get kicked out of Harvard some day. For a bit of innocent political humor?
I think you need some self-reflection.

My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Some times he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.
In before it moves to the PF...
The fact that he lives under that flag that has provided him a system wherein he was adopted (and not abandoned), provided an education and the opportunity to succeed at a high level (and making $$$ for being an oppressively bad QB), while totally ignoring the fact that a few bad cops don't equate to a bad country.
Duh-hoosh-bag... go be concerned about Chicago and what's happening there.
