With regard to its designs for our nation, debasement has been the name of the game for the political left for a long time. While volumes could be written on the moral debasement alone catalyzed by the left, America’s standing in the world, our economy, our educational system, our worldview and collective self-image, among many other things, have been targets for incremental debasement by the left.
When liberals began targeting the sexual attitudes of our population through mass media and junk science such as Alfred Kinsey’s perverted sex studies, suddenly the worst thing one could be was a prude, and the accusation was thrown around almost as liberally (no pun intended) as “homophobe” has been in recent years. In retrospect, we can see that both were part of the same stratagem of shaming ideological opponents into acquiescence.
Lately, the news has been replete with how the civil rights of transgendered people are being trod upon by narrow-minded state governments and the bigoted straight majority. In a truly perverse turn of events, even the term “transgendered” has become nebulous; it is no longer employed to reference pre-operative transsexuals, but people who have chosen to represent as the opposite of their biological gender. The term “transvestite” doesn’t fit the bill, either; these are people who claim to literally identify as the opposite gender – at least at present.
While this liberally lubricated political football (again, no pun intended) defies logical interpretation and has given rise to truly bizarre and inane grandstanding on the part of everyone from chain stores to rock stars, it is nothing compared to what is next coming down the pike: legitimizing and then ultimately decriminalizing pedophilia, or child molestation.
Preposterous, sayest thou?
Case in point 1: Last September, WND’s Matt Barber detailed how the Obama administration’s Department of Defense was facilitating the homosexual abuse of young boys at the hands of Muslim allies in Afghanistan, and how U.S. servicemen who attempted to blow the whistle on attendant policies were being drummed out of the service. Lest any take exception to the source, Barber widely cited a New York Times article on the same topic, which revealed that these atrocious acts were even occurring on U.S. military bases in Afghanistan.
Case in point 2: When the notoriously liberal American Psychiatric Association made a furtive attempt to reclassify pedophilia as a sexual orientation rather than a mental illness in the 2013 version of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5 or DSM-V), the outcry from medical professionals and the public was so strong that the APA essentially said that it had all been some sort of mistake, and released a statement that the erroneous use of the phrase “sexual orientation” would be corrected.
