So the other day we were informed that the refugees fleeing ISIS are the responsibility of the US since everything happening in Iraq is the US's fault. Fair enough. The US certainly has dropped the ball in recent years. Which validates that idea of the Evil West. That's a popular liberal mantra. The Christian West and its bastard child America is the sole cause of all suffering and evil in the world. Inferior in every regard, it still manages to be wrong about everything while contributing virtually nothing but the high ideals of post-Christian progressive ideologies.
Still, there are variants, and denominations and levels of devotion to this popular mantra. So one fellow comes in to affirm the complete guilt and burden of responsibility that America has in all this, which is fine. But then he dares to suggest that not all Muslims seem quite as passionately against ISIS as we might want. Eerily quiet perhaps in their protests against ISIS. Just like in the years after 9/11, when more than one observer noticed that while Muslims, when pressed, would condemn the attacks, many seemed to wiggle a little bit from complete condemnation, while also wanting to somehow blame everything from America to the Crusades.
Well, that won't do. If liberalism has taught us one thing, it's that you can't have tolerance and diversity unless you achieve total obedience to the dogma. So one of my favorite posters swings in to chastise this wayward commenter. It's not enough that he has declared the US the cause of all evil in the Middle East, and the prime contributor to ISIS and its reign of terror. He has erred by suggesting that the non-Western/non-American world is anything but pure and wonderful, except those who understandably hate us because we made them hate us.
Fortunately, this is but one corner of the Catholic blogosphere. Unfortunately, it reflects a suicidal attitude and belief system held by a growing number of Westerners, Catholics, and enemies of the Christian Western tradition. Still, you have to admit, it's fun to watch.
