A Plethora of Platitudes
The American Spectator ^ | August 29, 2012 | Lisa Fabrizio

Now that the convention action is finally heating up, we can fully expect the liberal propaganda machine to spin into high gear, as it were. From the phony hurricane allusions designed to invoke the cherished dogma that Republicans are to blame for everything, including acts of God, to their ongoing, fear-mongering ditties, Democrats are in full attack mode.

.....How have they affected the mindset of this country? Let me count the ways:

I'm a good person. This paean to the culture of relativism has been the catalyst for the breakdown of personal responsibility and the cult of victimhood which is strangling the road to the American Dream. If, as every Hollywood movie and network TV show affirms, we are all entitled to our own definition of right and wrong, thereby validating our own opinion of "goodness," then everything is acceptable and no one is wrong; except in the eyes of those old fogey religious fanatics who are, no doubt, judgmental and racist homophobes.

So how might these knuckle-dragging Neanderthals redeem themselves as members of a kinder and gentler, utopian America? Easy. They must learn to give back to the community. This nauseating phrase -- an offshoot of the "it takes a village" mentality -- is the get-out-of-jail card for everyone from unrepentant, thieving politicians to gang-banging sports and rap stars. Meant, I suppose, to indicate the intention of helping others, it nonetheless calls to mind the imposition of "community service" on low-grade criminals; that is, something that is forced upon the giver.....

....Never discuss politics or religion at a bar....

...Everybody knows it....

So how to counter these familiar tactics?....Speak up and do not be afraid to debate the value of objective moral truths wherever and whenever the opportunity presents itself....
