The following post exchange reminded me of why we must teach our children the definition of a hypocrite.
(It also serves as an odd comfort to me concerning what future generations will know about those who have usurped control of our lives. Even if we are currently silenced and shamed into submission, there will always be a record of our “betters” being no more intelligent, honorable nor sane than the worst of Us..from their continuously open and arrogant mouths.)
“Racist language like this has led to violence throughout the world’s history. No human being is an animal. We have to be better than this.”
These are words spoken by a woman casting judgement.. after having this to say about abortion.
“To say that’s evil shows disregard for the ability of a woman to make that personal life-and-death decision about her own body,”
She is accusing another human being for “racist” comments when her own stand on the abortion issue exposes her in a way she is obviously oblivious to; as a hypocrite.
Especially when one respects that many people have had legitimate and personal “life and death” issues concerning MS-13.
To end the life of a human being for any reason other than to save one’s own life is a choice many are free to make. There should be no argument there. It’s simple.
But with that in mind, when a person indignantly insults another for being “racist” on the grounds of “being better” than to call people “animals”….then she needs to defend the gall she has in doing so.
In our society a human baby is only protected as a “human” according to the whim, will or worry of the woman carrying it.
THAT is worse than the consideration given an animal.
It means that a yet to be born human holds no value greater than an idea…the actions of a mistake or any variety of intangible factors.
Thus, the consideration a human baby is due, by legal default, is less than the animals we weep fat tears for and stomp even fatter feet about.
It is finger wagging hypocrites who have anything to say about what others consider important when they subscribe to such a cut and dry ideology about the “worth of a human being”. Simple.
It’s high time we taught our children the definition of what hypocrites are, even if we’re pathetically unsure of the definition of what a “human” is.
Within the hypocrite’s actions and contradictory comments an unforgivable amount of damages are done and fires are continually set.
THAT is what has lent much more to this world’s history of violence than spoken words have-the ignorance , arrogance and the hypocrite’s cherry picking which leaves lives plummeting into voids because the grounds that were built with “honorable” rules and promises turned out to be no more than shifting sands.
THAT is what lends more to our history of unrest and violence..when the rules only apply to those who bray the loudest or land the heaviest blows.
On the “willy” of Wherever and “nilly” of Nevermind.
