From a provocative website I often read, resist agreeing with just as frequently, and occasionally comment on, comes this remark from another visitor concerning what looks to be a blossoming theme these days.
“We can’t save stupid white liberals and save ourselves at the same time.”
Seems that whenever there is a report that the chickens of chaos may come home to roost in the liberal coop itself, some observers are quick to offer up a grim “So who gives a damn?”
And what is a limited government type to think when the left/fascist social vandals and subverters of our once constitutional government of strictly enumerated powers, i.e., those who would drag us into fascistic liberty killing social programs like the Obamacare individual mandate, or who would flood the nation with illegally arriving aliens, are themselves targeted, quite literally and for death, by foreign jihadis?
Does one get upset? Do you ruefully shake your head at the irony? Or do you pull up a chair, and crack open a beer?
Now for the main bout of the evening, a tag team match. In the postmodern-left blue state corner, defending the internally driven ruination of western civilization, we have Amanda “Death to the Patriarchy” and borderline personality Marcotte, and Michael “Lord Humongous” Moore!
And opposing them in the Black Flag of Islam corner, we have Mohammad “The Knife” Mohammad, and Mo …
Ladies and Gentlemen, Ladies and Gentlemen I’m afraid that we have run into a difficulty here over the rules. Apparently, our contestants in the Black Flag of Islam corner, did not quite understand that they were supposed to await the bell before slicing into their opponents.
We are currently attempting to contact David Brooks and Chris Matthews as last minute replacements for the late Marcotte and Moore team.
So, somehow ISIS has not gotten the message that the American left is really more like them in their totalitarianism than not. And for some reason ISIS, not recognizing the American left as fundamentally their kind of people, proposes creating mayhem in certain leftist-rich targets.
Recalling then, Michael Moore’s infamous query as to why a liberal target like New York had to be attacked rather than some conservative place like Provo, Utah, what is a non-masochist to think about the possibility of the fat boy himself (or those ideologically like him) being hoisted on his own malice packed petard?
Well, I’m not quite sure what to think, myself. It’s possible that there is a larger moral dimension to it, despite what one would naturally imagine.
But I am pretty sure that the guy who wrote this was on to something in a general way when he, to repeat, observed: “We can’t save stupid white liberals and save ourselves at the same time.“
He says he figures we can’t.
If push comes to shove, I am as yet unconvinced we should even try.
