Area Man Unable to Attend ‘Keep Families Together’ Rally Due to Daughter’s Softball Team Commitment

The Facebook friends and family of 42-year-old Taylor Stanley, of Matthews, Indiana, were surprised last weekend to discover that, in spite of writing passionately about Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement’s (ICE) forced removal of children from parents for the last few weeks, Stanley did not attend the “Keep Families Together” rally. Stanley family friend Leah Burt stated, “I was really surprised. I actually went to the rally because Taylor said Lindsey, the kids, and him were going to be there. But he was nowhere to be found.”

Stanley posted later in the weekend that he was sorry that he couldn’t make it to the rally, but his 7-year-old daughter, Jordan, had a softball practice that she had to be at. “Lindsey and I are both really upset about the whole ‘kids in cages’ thing. But what kind of lesson would we be teaching Jordan if we let her skip her commitment to softball to go to a protest?”

When reached for comment, Stanley’s wife, Lindsey, concurred. “Yeah, I don’t mind that Taylor posts his views about politics on Facebook and I pretty much agree with him on that sort of stuff. Like I didn’t vote for Trump or anything and I’m pretty much for keeping kids out of cages. But we do have three kids and they are signed up for commitments that we have to honor.

“Not only did Jordan have softball practice on Saturday, but L J (Lindsey, Jr), had her dance class and Connor had to go to his Junior Fantasy Baseball League tournament. We can’t just drop all these things and go to a protest just because the government has removed over 2700 children from their parents and has refused transparency as to where these kids have been taken, effectively kidnapping thousands of minors, many of whom will likely not be reunited with their families. What kind of parents would we be if we allowed our kids to slack off to protest some political thing like that?”

Taylor told us that he plans to still write very emotional Facebook posts about the Trump administration and their policies. “You know, in a way, I think that’s pretty significant work in and of itself. I have a lot of similarly-minded friends who give me a lot of likes on my posts, so I’m clearly making an impact.”

Upon returning from softball practice, Jordan reminded her parents that she wanted to go to the rally. She told reporters, however, “I realize my parents are trying to teach me how to be an adult. I can’t stay seven forever, daddy says.” She then asked her parents if they knew anything about her teammate Maricela or her family, as nobody has seen them at school or practice for the last couple of weeks.
