Kathy Shaidle had a short but ingenious post the other day, headlined “If we’re crazy, they made us that way“:
The same people who told us 30 years ago that “marriage is just a stupid piece of paper” now insist that it’s a “human right.”
The same people who told us that “a flag is just a meaningless piece of material” now want certain flags banned and others raised — or else.
The same people who say you can’t change who you want to f*ck tell us you CAN change the bits you f*ck them with…
The same people who used to tell us to “lighten up” and “learn to take a joke” now fire people who make them.
It’s always a mistake to expect first principles from the left. In Turkey President Erdogan famously explained that democracy is a train you ride until the stop you want to get to – and then you get off. That’s how the left feels about “rights”. There are no principles, only accretions of power.
