Today, we are ever more witnessing the reverse to be true. Should the "wrong" designee utter any disparagement towards a member of a favored group for having done something society once considered universally egregious, he is likely to find himself facing legalities. Most call it as the SSM has taught them to call it. Politically Correct. I think that I have identified it on these pages more accurately as Political Cowering. Cowardice. (Due to unpreparedness at best, but often made worse by complicity.)
And now, as you shall see below, because saner heads have not prevailed in our society, this phenomenon has gone on to become far worse.
If you're not a member of a Leftist mascot group, you may not harm a member of any such. More, a Leftist mascot can take your life in any way he pleases, with no blot upon his group "identity."
What Dr. Porretto has identified is worse than abrogation by the state side. It is worse than the ages older divide and conquer tactic. And mainstream politicians like President Obama (having set the stage for those threatening riots should George Zimmerman be acquited) and Senator Schumer (setting the stage for those threatening riots should illegal aliens demands not be met) are talking and acting like Left-wing fringe radicals from the late 19th Century.
Another way to put how far this debacle of thinking has taken us is this. Who would have ever thought that, as a consequence from having permitted the mass murderer escape execution, Charles Manson would see the fulfillment of his dream? (Well, maybe Paul Ehrlich, who you may be sure is nearing orgasm.)
It is a pretty horrible set up that these victimogues have wrought for us. I do not see any leader on the horizon with the understanding of how to cut this Gordian knot. So I repeat Dr. Porretto's advice. Yes pray. Very much.
