I used to sort of understand and even agree with a lot of liberal thinking, but good God what the f— is going on in the liberal mind these days?
Now we are cancelling fall holidays over supposed atrocities of hundreds of years ago and/or vague linkages to witchcraft and/or whatever else. It is absurd – and we aren’t even talking about economic policy or Occupy Wall Street. What a mess.
Via Fox News, WHDH, and other sources, Anne Foley, an elementary school principal in my old state of Massachusetts says this:
“When we were young we might have been able to claim ignorance of the atrocities that Christopher Columbus committed against the indigenous peoples. We can no longer do so. For many of us and our students, celebrating this particular person is an insult and slight to the people he annihilated. On the same lines, we need to be careful around the Thanksgiving Day time as well.”
Taking this impeccable logic forward, why stop at holidays? If we really want to atone for our great, great, great, great, great ancestors sins shouldn’t we do something that really hurts – like slashing our wrists?
Then you combine this thinking with other guilt about the environment, exploiting workers, and so forth and the only logical place to go is either back to the Stone Age or onto the next world. We certainly can’t stay here.
Who knows what the future brings, but I think we can pretty safely say that I won’t be voting Democratic again anytime soon.
