Watching these ever-increasing national media circuses vie for center-ring attention, a constant theme remains that age-old battle of truth vs. lies. All those memorable quotes on lies, like the Oliver Wendell Holmes, “Sin has many tools, but a lie is the handle that fits them all.”, come to mind, yet truth doesn’t seem to matter to many of the purveyors of rabid, partisan political agendas. Moral relativists scream louder that the truth about the event doesn’t matter, with even elected national leader, Eleanor Holmes Norton heatedly arguing with Sean Hannity a few days ago (Mediaite video here):
“My interest is not in what happened, my interest is in what should happen!”
Finding left-wing examples of this disturbing disregard for the truth about the events that transpired doesn’t take much effort. The deafening silence from the vast, right-wing conspiracy of elected Republicans, squirming and slithering away from openly discussing matters where race plays a role, screams of a moral cowardice, quaking with fear of awakening the wrath of race hustlers like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. They adopt generic, milk toast sound bites, carefully avoiding, by word or inflection, anything that might offend the PC gatekeepers on the left. The left does not hold a monopoly on “leading from behind”!
If I were an alien intercepting American electronic data, from TV to the internet, well, I suspect I would decide, “Skip them, there’s no intelligent life left there!” If I were a human being somewhere far beyond America’s boundaries, likewise, I probably would wonder how such a sleazy, mendacious, morally-bankrupt culture still invents so much of the world’s technological marvels, discovers amazing medical treatment advances, and fields a military that is the envy of the world. Yet, being an American, I know the pop-culture doesn’t represent the large portion (not sure if it’s still a majority) of America, who struggles to fight against the tide of the negative, pernicious reach of moral relativism that seeps into our daily lives, gradually lulling people into accepting warped reasoning, meaningless slogans and deliberately deceptive “narratives”.
Words carry meaning. That is why the moral relativists devote so much effort to creating new phrases that turn Judeo-Christian morality, from which America’s cultural mores grew, on it’s head, leaving a zombie like acceptance and regurgitation of the lexicon of the left. With each submission to the new phrases, reasoning recedes, mindless, emotion-driven narratives fill that deafening silence left by cowardly Republicans, leaving us with the Zombie Apocalypse upon us. Yes, we should fear our demise from mindless, political zombies rampaging on the streets of America! Life imitating fiction, somehow fitting for the moral-relativist script for our national “narratives”, replete with cannibalistic monsters who feed on human flesh…
