Here’s some placations from the Left:
- “No one wants to do abortion outside of serious and extreme circumstances”
- “No one wants to do partial-birth abortions”
- “No one wants to kill a baby outside the womb and claim it’s for a woman’s health”
- “No one wants to abort everyone born with Down Syndrome”
- “No one wants to take some of your guns”
- “No one wants to take ALL of your guns”
- “No one’s waging a war on Columbus Day”
- “No one’s waging a war on Thanksgiving”
Mmmmhmmm. And I bet you believed the other ones too (and if last year you also believed them when they said the Rudolph Christmas special was bigoted, this year you’ll be happy to learn that it’s woke again and you are bigoted if you don’t think so… so I guess everyone including that woke NYT writer was a bigot last year, see how fast this stuff changes?). Seems everyone from Vox to Washington Post to Esquire to Mediamatters is denying that there is one, but the facts tell the real story, which as usual is nothing like the fiction the Left wants you to believe.
What made me think of writing this (I forgot I broached the topic last year) was how in this piece examining the Left’s triggering at the term “Merry Christmas”, one liberal outlet notes that the notion of a war on it is a GOP talking point. Given the warpath that the ADL went on this year, where as I mentioned even The Beatles circa 1963 would be considered white supremacist (which means owning a copy of the White Album is like owning a copy of Mein Kampf according to liberals), I’m surprised these critics of the phrase didn’t pickup on what I talked about last year when the Left decided that merely saying “Merry Christmas” was racist.
Where’s the war on Eid al-Fitr or Chanukah? Well… Democrats have their own thing for Chanukah I guess (and yes I do have a third one of those in the works; I’ve hoarded over 70 links in that thing but never bothered to write something)… not so much the occasion as the practitioners.
To morally justify their war, as if the depraved lunatics really need a justification to act aside from the raw emotion they feel moment to moment, some asinine commentator had the headline “OPINION: Social and religious inclusivity does not mean a ‘war on Christmas'”. Censoring Christians is NOT inclusive. Oh wait, you’re doing that thing like you do with racism where you take power away from your Enemy and then claim that because the Enemy had power you can’t actually be the one attacking them, even though you are just as hateful as you claim they are.
I find this interesting: atheists are quite a litigious bunch. Much like their brethren of all faiths on the Left, they can’t force people to become atheists in this country, so they just complain and sue to silence everyone they disagree with… meaning Christians in the case of atheists. Checking out the Freedom From Religion’s website, it seems at best they only have minor arguments with the non-Christian religious community, and actually declare those people as holy figures to atheists. Aside from all the reverence and respect the atheist community has for their allies in their joint fight against Christianity, we have FFR’s site declare non-Christian religions as angels, at least in the Left’s theology.
Christianity has a concept called “original sin”. In the stories in the Bible, the first two humans God created screwed up royally, (getting knowledge after God told them not to get it) and that was the “original sin”, and God judges every human that followed based on it. Angels on the other hand have no sin and exist to serve God, and sort of have a more privileged position than mere humans.
The Left has its own theology complete with angels and “original sin”. Their version of “original sin” is racism, sometimes referred to as “privilege” for those who they can’t outright call racists but really really really want to for their narratives to work (“privilege” means the racist act of receiving special treatment because you are white, regardless of if you seek that privilege, and according the Left even the poorest of the whites has it thus it is, like “original sin”, something you are born with an an outgrowth of that racism). Rather than humans in general, white people are the ones judged by that, mostly white men though white women too depending on the denomination of the liberal in question. So racism is a white person’s “original sin”. Non-whites are the angels- they are not capable of racism, they are pure and clean unless they become “fallen angels” who share the white man’s ideology like Dr. Ben Carson, equal to Satan from Christianity (which explains why the only thing liberals hate more than a white is a non-white who defects, as you’d see in the post I linked to earlier in this run-on sentence). To borrow the phrase Nancy Pelosi used to describe MS-13 murderers and rapists, non-whites have a “spark of divinity” in them that white people don’t.
The religious parallel continues. Christianity gives you a chance for redemption. The “born with original sin” deal is said to have ended with Jesus’ resurrection. I mean, you’re still born with that original sin and all, but if you believe in Jesus (and presumably act like a good person) then your soul is saved.
So what’s the Left’s equivalent? Well, right now Bill Kristol and Nichole Wallace are at MSNBC repenting for their sins, They did worse than just be a white person, they actually helped Republicans. But for the rest of you whites, for the moment if you adopt the DNC as your Lord and Savior then your “original sin” disappears. Just look at what happened to Ralph Northam and Jimmy Kimmel- they committed some horribly racist sins, but are forgiven their trespasses as they preach in the Left’s name. Some folks aren’t so lucky, but Christianity has been rather fickle with those things too.
Also for the moment, other ways exist for whites to save their souls. Attach yourself to an oppressed group. Becoming an LGBTQ Democrat (LGBTQ Republicans are seen in the same way as non–white Republicans, as Satan is seen by Christians) strips you of some of that racist “privilege” of yours. Declaring yourself an atheist removes a little of that privilege too, because it is also considered an oppressed group despite their legal protections and their aggressive stance towards the dominant religion in the country. Conversion to a non-Christian religion also helps. Declaring yourself a communist strips you of your privilege too, to the point that many other sins like wealth are forgiven. So being a poor communist LGBTQ atheist slave to a non-white is the best that a white person can do to absolve themselves of their sins of privilege.
You’ll notice that earlier I said “for the moment” when it came to some ways a white could absolve their sins. That’s because the Left is a constantly changing place (as you saw exemplified above in my parenthetical about Rudolph). The DNC one day might be equal to the devil the next day, like how Obama’s immigration views in his book are now white nationalist rhetoric. Associating with the Democratic Party is by no means a certain path to redemption. Why, just recently the entire party was declared as racist by MSNBC. All those years of toiling for Obama were for nought, forgiveness was taken away simply because the Left changed its mind. I suppose that’s the biggest contrast with Christianity- God doesn’t change his mind unless you give Him a pretty darn good reason, certainly a better one than “this unqualified minority female candidate lost therefore everyone who went against her is racist”.
No wonder liberals hate Christians more than any other. The Left’s theology is a dark mirror of Christianity, and they see their religion as something like a changeling, but instead of switching an infant at birth they’re trying to switch the most popular religion in the country for their own version of it.
Or as the old hypothesis goes, if you believe in nothing then you’ll believe anything.
