While we wait for the U.S. Supreme Court to re-define reality (“Marriage, from now on, is the union of any two living things, until we decide it’s three or more”), last week gave us two news stories that shed further light on the overall situation.
At Temple University, where professors write books and papers to excuse and legitimize pedophilia, someone ordered the cadets in Temple’s ROTC unit to march around, in public, wearing ladies’ shoes spray-painted bright red.
And in Aurora, Colorado, a four-year-old child was sent home from school with an uneaten lunch and a stern letter to the mother, who had committed the offense [cue in sinister organ music]… of including a few Oreo cookies in her daughter’s lunch.
These two events tell us that the Loving Left is re-defining reality everywhere you look, whenever they can get their hands on anyone, from harmless little girls to full-grown soldiers. There is no place to hide from it, and no one is safe.
Someone actually in the U.S. Army chain of command, as yet unidentified, ordered the cadets to make themselves a laughing-stock. It was clearly understood that any cadet who refused could kiss his military career goodbye. This is how the “Choice” party always operates—by taking away the choices that they don’t want anyone to make.
What was the army’s explanation for ordering its officers-in-training to make like a Monty Python gag? We should have guessed it: to shore up a narrative that is demonstrably untrue. The cadets were ordered to “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” to show solidarity with wacko feminists fighting to eradicate a non-existent “campus rape culture.”
In contrast to official Justice Department statistics that show that college campuses are remarkable for an extremely low incidence of the crime of rape, the feminists demand that we believe the campus is a flaming hotbed of rape.
But the Left always favors imaginary problems—because imaginary problems, like the campus rape culture and Global Warming, can never be solved and activists can just go on forever doing things to the rest of us in working toward a resolution of the non-existent crisis.
Meanwhile, let us not forget that wacko feminists have long maintained that all heterosexual sex is rape.
America’s glorious progressive ruling caste, in every nook and cranny of society, lusts to control the behavior of its fellow citizens. So in Aurora, the school dictates what parents may or may not give their children to eat for lunch.
Cookies and other sweets are forbidden, except on those festive occasions when the school requires them to be brought in. Just to prove that concern for children’s health has nothing to do with it, and that these “change agents” don’t know what they’re talking about, they have a rule that, whenever the parent includes potatoes in a child’s lunch, bread must also be provided. The result is a starch-fest—bread and potatoes, a happy combination for the cultivation of obesity.
What kind of people consents to heave its future army officers march around in ladies’ shoes, to the guffaws and encouragement of America’s enemies? Who allow school teachers, no more than public hirelings, to dictate what a mother feeds her own child? Have we no shame? Have we no self-respect?
The Left re-defines reality. They’ll even cut off your sexual anatomy, shoot you full of hormones, and although they can’t do anything about those pesky XX and XY chromosomes, they will insist that all the rest of us acknowledge you as having actually changed your sex—on pain of being branded a Hater and dragged off to be punished by a “human rights” commission.
Why do we take it lying down? Is it simply because these innovations are so bizarre, so over the top, that we are just at a loss for what to do or say? Have they burrowed so deeply into our minds that we are left with no response but to obey? Or is it that so many of us have been through public school and college, and learned conformity?
Isn’t it about time we started saying “No! No! No!”
Because saying “No” will not get any easier as time goes by.
