Dazzling Eruption of Moral Blindness

Excerpts from http://www.city-journal.org/html/when-pieties-collide-14342.html:

As revelers gathered in the central square of Cologne, Germany, for the traditional New Year’s Silvesternacht celebrations, thousands of North African and Middle Eastern males started throwing firecrackers into the crowd and attacking passersby.

They pick pocketed and robbed males and females, but they directed most of their violence against women: grabbing their breasts and buttocks, inserting their fingers into the women’s vaginas, and, in a few instances, raping them, while shouting sexual insults. A total of 653 victims filed reports with the police.

Similar attacks were reported in cities across 12 German states and in France, Greece, Sweden, Switzerland, Finland, and Turkey. The assaults appeared to have been planned and coordinated through social media.

Police and political leaders covered up the violence for days. 

Eventually, however, news of the assaults leaked out, and the most surprising cover-up of all began. Leading feminists across the continent and in Great Britain either ignored the incidents entirely or distorted their significance beyond recognition.

Ralf Jäger, minister of the interior for the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, announced: “What happens on right-wing platforms and in chat rooms is at least as awful as the acts of those assaulting the women.”

Seriously!?!?  SPEAKING out against this kind of thing is “at least as awful” as actually DOING IT!?!?

Dear God in Heaven. The Left has officially lost its collective mind to the Dark Side.

  1. I swear, progressive ideology turns people’s brains into tapioca. Speaking out against rape is as bad as committing rape? Reminds me of the idiots who worried about protecting our precious “diversity” right after the Ft. Hood massacre, because losing our diversity would be even worse than what happened to all those innocent people who were gunned down by a locoweed jihadist.

      I’m reading Angel Time (#2) by Anne Rice.

      After being temporarily faked out by a demon who appeared to him as a beautiful angel, the protagonist talks with his guardian angel, noting with surprise that the demon had appealed to his reason, but had produced shoddy, easy-to-refute arguments.

      The angel remarks that demons are kinda dumb.

      I loved it! And it makes sense, given that the God they rejected is the source of all intelligence and goodness and truth.

      It also follows that their human followers, who have much shorter lives and far less IQ, would be total mush brains. In my experience, even the brilliant ones (by human standards) are prone to basic errors in logic and have a bewildering reluctance to really LOOK at evidence that calls their world view into question.
