The Seven Stages of Leftist Descent

The always-insightful poster Engraved-On-His-Hands at lucianne.com just made a brilliant observation, so brilliant that I'd like to share it in full.

The post is made in reaction to an Air Force Times story detailing a recent modification at the Air Force Academy, giving a "sacred space" to so-called "pagans."

EOHH had this to say in response:
There seems to be various steps or progressions, not only in this particular subject, but in many others affecting our culture. The steps include, but are not limited to, the ones that I hastily put down below:

1. ''You are crazy for suggesting that something like that could ever happen around here.''

2. ''It's not that widespread, and it would cause more harm than good to outlaw it.''

3. ''A lot of good people, including some of my friends, participate in it.''

4. ''It's really not that bad.''

5. ''Those who oppose it are extremists who are worse than the problem itself.''

6. ''We need as a society to marginalize those who oppose it.''

7. ''We need to enact laws to prosecute and silence the bigots who oppose this.''

(Well, is your seat in the handbasket all comfy now?)

Exactly. Exactly.

  1. The US military
    is now funded at a rate equal to
    the military spending of every other country on earth, combined. Indeed, their budget is larger than the entire GDP of all but a very few sovereign nations.
    However, they have lost every engagement they have been involved with for the last 60 years ...

    (okay, they have not yet surrendered in Iraq or Afghanistan. Do you honestly believe anything else can happen there?)

    so maybe praying to pagan gods might help ...
    they sure need something ...

  2. Anonymous sez:

    To which I say:

    Nu, tovarshch, vy govorite po-russki? ('Do you speak Russian?')

    Nyet?

    You are fucking welcome.

    In Iraq, I expect that we will leave a largely screwed up semi-democracy, which is a major improvement to the Nazi hellhole it was when we conquered it.

    I expect that for the foreseeable future we'll have just enough troops in Afghanistan to napalm Taliban training camps at will (and close range). This is as it should be.

    Now go back to making mudpies, I'm done with you.
