Look at this poor girl. This is from an ISIS slave auction. And where are the feminists? It’s sickening. But there’s just no will to take any of this on. We’ve been utterly demoralised from within by the left.[/quote]
No, we conservatives in the United States are waging the real war on women. I mean we don’t want to pay for on demand birth control and abortions. Being a seven year old slave bride is liberating. Making women pay for contraception is barbaric.
I have been thinking about this since reading “I shall bear witness” by Victor Klemperer. The war on language has been utterly ceded to the modern left wing. Running around defending against ludicrous accusations of racism and misogyny while real monsters are out there literally raping children.
The worst part is how utterly decentralized the whole thing is. There is no frog march occurring, just an aimless zombie shuffle. All sense of pride and perspective across the western world is just gone.
But maybe the tapestry I am painting is too grim. I would like to hope so. But when I see things like the formerly respectable British police force not prosecuting child sex-traffickers because they are afraid of being accused of racism my blood starts to boil.
You and me both man. It drives me absolutely up the wall, and the problem is that because they have co-opted the very language used to describe these things it makes it all that more difficult to expose the language issue and take it back.
I have often thought that the comfort and convenience of life in the western world has completely and utterly skewed our collective perspective on what REAL hardship and REAL tragedy and oppression is.
Unfortunately I do not think your assessment is overly pessimistic.[/quote]
Dang, I was hoping I had my tinfoil hat on.
Hardship is something I think so few experience any more. That includes myself. It is funny how self-defeating the comfort is though. We have lost the ability to resist the people trying to turn us back to the dark ages.
It’s like we have attached a cilice to ourselves.
