Those Who Don't Fight Evil Fight Statues

Postby Glacier » Aug 29th, 2017, 2:25 pm

All my life, I have known this rule about people: Those who don't fight the greatest evils will fight lesser evils or make-believe evils.

This happens to be the morally defining characteristic of the left. During the Cold War, many liberals and nearly all conservatives fought communism, but the left fought anti-communism.

[...]

The same holds true with regard to the greatest evil in the world at this time: totalitarian Islam, or Islamism. The left is doing precisely what it did during the war against communism: It's fighting the anti-Islamists, not the Islamists. Just as it labeled anti-communists "cold warriors" and other derisive epithets, the left labels those fighting Islamism as "Islamophobes" and, of course, "racists." In the moral order as perceived by the left, it is the anti-Islamists who are the enemy of the good.

[...]

Therefore, if you have moral clarity, you are not on the left. If you have moral clarity, you can be a liberal, a conservative, a centrist, an atheist, a believer, a Christian, a Jew, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Hindu, a black, a white, a Latino, an Asian, a Native American, a gay, a straight or a bisexual. But you cannot be a leftist.

[...]

And, of course, it fights global warming. Leftists have convinced themselves that the real fight against evil in the world today is not against Islamism; it's against carbon emissions.

And now, we can add statues to the list. The left was AWOL against communism, and it's AWOL against Islamism. But it's in the vanguard of fighting statues.

Good post.

While the left rails against the anti-islam or other anti-ism, they promote fighting amongst ourselves. They try to divide and conquer. Let's not let them get away with it.
