As hatred is defined as intense dislike, what is wrong with inciting intense dislike of a religion, if the activities or teachings of that religion are so outrageous, irrational or abusive of human rights that they deserve to be intensely disliked?
I’m not a particular proponent of Neil deGrass Tyson as either a scientist or a valid authority on sociopolitical issues, but Tyson’s oddly apt in the case of his recent tweet about mass shootings, deaths in general, and the mass market response to such things.
There’s too many people – sheeple really – who go into hysterics over the ever-hyped by the Democrats’ Lamestream Media occurrences like “mass shootings” but are apathetic towards so many other avoidable ways in which people die on daily basis. They just dutifully bleat about what they’re told to bleat about so that the grifters of the Left can profiteer off of this tragedies.
So, kudos to Mr. Tyson for actually applying reason and facts to the situation and putting in a more rational perspective.
What the MSM aka the Lamestream Media aka Fake News has done to their credibility with the American people can best and most aptly be called Self-Inflicted Integricide. The same Presstitutes who whored themselves out to the Obama Regime picked up their proverbial guns and shot themselves through their journalistic ethics in an attempt to keep their “johns,” the evermore-extreme, delusional Left.
Then, after of decade of being little to nothing more than whores for the Liberals, Progressives, any group of non-normative protected trait bearers, they’ve utterly alienated the American people who had for many decades respected them. By this point there’s really no realistic path back for them. The integricide was mortal and I doubt that even heroic measures can save them now.
I say that I see no realistic hope for cure for what’s left the “Free Press” because, both for them and for the People, it’s only going to get worse. The Left, these Liberals and Progressives as they call themselves, are utterly intolerant of heresy and are quick to rant and rave against the MSM whenever they have decided that their presstitutes have step out of the fold by not being hateful enough towards anyone and everyone who doesn’t sufficiently comport themselves to the Left’s ever-changing and ever-degenerating standards.
The celebrities of both Hollywood and the NFL thought that their opinions mattered, that those opinions trumped their performance of their jobs in what are service industries. They spoke their narrative, which they proclaim as Truth, to Power and Power – real power, the power of the People and the People’s purse – responded.
Suicide in America and by America is on the rise and it’s being assisted by Islam and using Liberals and Progressives as weapon. And yes, it will be our domestic enemies, the Liberals and Progressives who are our proximate cause of death. Islam and various other enemy groups will just fight over our nation’s carcass.
Face facts; how can it be viewed any other way after a crazed Muslim terrorist – one who had been previous investigated as a terrorist twice by Obama’s FBI – decided to adhere to the Qur’an and launch a terrorist attack upon a gay bar in Orlando, FL, butchering dozens and wounding dozens more and the Left blamed:
Generalized and Unspecific Homophobia
They won’t even mention Islam or Muslims except to: say that it’s they’re no way to blame for terrorism; must be protected, no matter what, from anything and everything; and that Muslims are horribly oppressed by the American people.
This is to be expected. Liberals and Progressives are dealing with the intersectionality of otherness. Since both Muslims and Queers are considered sufficiently other to gain the Left’s loyalty and special protections, they were suddenly placed in the awkward and conflicted position of having to on the fly determine a hierarchy of otherness and privilege.
Rather than do that they chose to cast blame on anything and everything that is generally considered normal and normative by Americans and tried their best to convince themselves that there is equivalency between not wanting to bake a cake for a queer wedding and gunning down a club full of queers.
Of course, one could pick any one of many, many other incidents involving interactions between the Liberals’ and Progressives’ individuals or groups possessing specially protected traits and find similar responses, especially when two or more such groups are in conflict.
Hence, America’s suicide will be by Liberalism; it’s the gun our nation has placed in its mouth. Islam is merely the current finger cocking the hammer.
It is a simple fact, proven time and time again by history, that most nations fall through the actions of others, not through their own, though it is also proven true that in many cases it is actions of their own that hastened or guaranteed their destruction by their foreign enemies. In all truth, it has always been an extreme rarity – and exceptional historical event – for any nation to truly fall and be destroyed by itself. In the normal course of events, the self-harm of a nation leads to its destruction but is not the actual, proximal cause of it.
And yet, we of the West are so very exceptional.
The nations and peoples of Western Civilization – in the modern era, the bastion of the Civilized World – are exceptional to the point of near uniqueness. We, lacking foreign enemies with both the will and the means to bring about of destruction and extermination, have chosen to breed, raise, and train our own destroyers.
So the final conclusion would surely be that whereas other civilizations have been brought down by attacks of barbarians from without, ours had the unique distinction of training its own destroyers at its own educational institutions, and then providing them with facilities for propagating their destructive ideology far and wide, all at the public expense. Thus did Western Man decide to abolish himself, creating his own boredom out of his own affluence, his own vulnerability out of his own strength, his own impotence out of his own erotomania, himself blowing the trumpet that brought the walls of his own city tumbling down, and having convinced himself that he was too numerous, labored with pill and scalpel and syringe to make himself fewer. Until at last, having educated himself into imbecility, and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction, he keeled overâ€“a weary, battered old brontosaurusâ€“and became extinct.
One need only open one’s eyes and look around in to see that Mr. Muggeridge was not wrong. No, Mr. Muggeridge’s prediction seems more rational than cynical these days, decades after he made it, as any with any level of objective awareness can see.
