A gazillion of my liberal facebook friends have posted this little bit of wit and wisdom:
After seeing this post once too often, I cracked. The last person amongst my friends who posted it got a message from me asking precisely how compelling an argument can be when it compares a human moral code to unreasoning animal behavior. Even if one thinks the human moral position is wrong, it still makes no sense to compare a human’s view homosexuality, a view based on reason, faith, logic, hate, or whatever, to a cow’s or penguin’s approach, which is purely unreasoning and instinctive. It’s a cute aphorism, but a lousy argument.
Clever aphorisms that are actually lousy arguments are the Left’s stock in trade. One of the oldies but goodies is “a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.” Hah! Hah! Hah! Men are useless! Except for pesky little things like making babies possible and, under ordinary, non government welfare circumstances, providing both the woman and their child with love, shelter, food, and stability.
Another cute, meaningless Leftism is “War is not the answer.” Whenever I see that stupid bumper sticker, I always mumble to myself, “It depends what the question is.” War is not the answer if your neighbor asks to borrow a cup of sugar. War is a useful answer if a hostile power uses high impact explosives to kill thousands of your citizens — and threatens to repeat the performance until you are entirely subjugated.
Oh, and about this one?
Isn’t that a great idea? Who cares that the Islamic religion does not acknowledge the possibility of coexistence? Islam isn’t shy about touting the fact that it is predicated on absolute conquest and subjugation. So the coexistence is kind of Orwellian (“All animals are equal, but some are more equal that others”), or Tacitus-ian (“They make a desert and call it peace”).
This long harumph is my way of introducing a couple of posts that Zombie wrote, each of which tracks Leftist protests, all of which come complete with signs. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to review the images Zombie shares, and to spot the Leftist sales pitches in all their glory. They are, without exception, illogical strident, obscene, or selfish (or some combination of the four).
Of course, when the logic of illogical slogans fails, Zombie’s other posts proves that war is indeed the answer:Email This Post To A Friend
