I’m back, and still playing beat the clock when I blog, so let me get right down to business:
Just one thing about Target’s preexisting open bathroom policy. You may not have known about Target’s long-standing open-access bathroom policy (all gender identities welcome wherever they want), but it appears that word has spread amongst the pervert population. The Target experience nicely exemplifies the point I was making here about Leftist policies that lower the bar for the bad guys. The Target experience also makes an ironic joke out of a particular type of smug Leftism that’s been making the rounds on my Facebook feed.
Has Dennis Prager been reading my blog? For how many years have I been saying that the Left hates the Judeo-Christian tradition because it’s predicated on justice, morality, and grace? I don’t know how many myself, although I was already making the argument back in 2011. I’ve made it fairly recently too, but can’t locate the darn post.
Why am I waffling about past posts? Because Dennis Prager makes much the same point I’ve been making when he asks “Why the Left loathes Western Civilization?”
So, then, the Big Question is, Why? Why is the Left hostile to Western civilization?
After decades of considering this question, the answer, I have concluded, is: standards.
The Left hates standards – moral standards, artistic standards, cultural standards. The West is built on all three, and has excelled in all three.
Dennis Prager’s discussion, of course, is more learned and in-depth than mine, but it’s gratifying to me to see that we’re thinking along the same lines.
