But the post that caught my eye was his take on the story that women want to take Andrew Jackson's picture off the 20.00 bill and replace it with a feminine hero. At the rate we're going, most will likely be women and minorities within a generation, so I guess this is the first step. Mark mostly makes fund with it, but he drops the 'Jackson as crazy racist' that is common in progressive and non-Anglo-European, Catholic views. That is, America was pretty much a racist, imperialist, genocidal men who were wicked and evil and devoid of much value.
I decided to play a little, and suggested that racism as a deal breaker means rethinking my statement that racism shouldn't be a strike against Chesterton's
The fun was watching the usual liberal stereotypes, childish responses, and hilarious attempts to remain consistent while explaining why suddenly racism may not be that big a deal, when set against American genocide. I only took it somewhat seriously. But it shows the absolute plummet of credibility that marks the blog, and unfortunately, a fairly large swath of Catholic apologetic media today. But this is ground zero for the bizarre evolution, so there I will remain for a couple more weeks.
