Yes, I know that title sounds like one of Dumbjon
' lengthy diatribes which often leave me a little...lost. I'll try not to let it be. I also happen to know that Pastorius is kind of a fan of and also voted for the particular nutball who inspired me to write this post, so he might not be all that keen on me slagging off this particular individual as part of it, but we'll see.
The gentleman in question is Bill Clinton, you see, who is currently in Qatar at an 'economic conference' - why an ex-pres would be at such a gathering unless it is to receive yet more oil-stained money is beyond me (ah, answered my own question there didnt I). He has made a quite astonishing statement about the famous cartoon jihad
whilst there, comparing said cartoons to anti-semitism! As if these
compare to thes
e. Or this piece of homegrown UK filth
for that matter.
This is that most modern of sins, moral relativism. Moral relativism, to me, is the idea that all forms of offense, insult or action are comparable. All sins, if you like, are equal. Those who follow moral relativism (almost exclusively to be found on the Left) are those that claim, for example, that the Americans targeting a terrorist enclave in Pakistan and killing five top Al-Qaeda members (including its chief bombmaker) but also killing a handful of civilians who were sheltering said terrorists at the same time is the same as Al-Qaeda sawing off the heads of helpless American contractors. That interning terrorists in Guantanamo Bay is comparable to the Nazis placing people in extermination camps. Where the UN is creating a special commission to 'investigate' Denmark and Norway for Islamophobia in publishing a dozen cartoons about Mohammed whilst in Darfur Muslims are murdering Christians and Animists literally by the hundreds on a daily basis and the UN is ignoring it. Indeed, that depicting Mohammed with a fizzing bomb on his head is comparable to depicting Jews killing children and baking cakes with their blood for Purim.
The most pernicious form of Moral Relativism is, of course, that perpetrated against Israel. This is the excuse that the 'Occupation' of land once owned by people who have spent sixty years trying to exterminate every Jew in the Middle East is somehow 'as bad as' the horrific society of the Palestinians and other Arabs, threaded with school textbooks teaching boys that all Jews are evil and murder small children and are subhumans (untermensch, you might say...), the intrinsic oppression of women even to the point where a woman who defends herself against rape is sentenced to death for doing so and where Moral Relativist organisations like the disgusting Amnesty International blame gang rapes and child abuse on Israel
rather than on the people that actually commit those offences. Where a security fence which demonstrably prevents terrorism (as is evidenced by the enormous fall off in Israeli casualties since it was built and the enormous number of terrorists who have been caught and imprisoned before reaching their targets) is an 'apartheid wall' as if Israel is torturing and murdering blacks by the hundred just as the South Africans did. Where Israel's longterm possession of nuclear weapons is used as justification for allowing a nation which has threatened to wipe it off the map to possess them also.
The Hamas election victory has brought the Moral Relativists crawling out of the woodwork in droves. Sickening accusations that 'well Hamas are bad but the IDF have killed lots of Palestinians as well' have abounded, as the Moral Relativists spin like tops to try and excuse a people prepared to elect an organisation dedicated to the extermination of the people next door. Moral Relativism's sick code equates the IDF returning sniper fire and accidentally downing civilians who are deliberately sheltering the snipers with Israeli children having to go to school in armoured vehicles because they are routinely shot at from the other side of the 'apartheid wall'.
Moral Relativism IS a sickness, and one that we shall see more of in the coming months as the terror-apologists in our midst attempt to push us to carry on treating with the new Terrorist boss, even more open than the old one. Like the Political Correctness that it goes hand in hand with, it is also a curse of the decadent West. I have no idea what the solution is, but it is something we right-thinking individuals all need to guard against and counter at every turn.
