If you burn the Quran, the iconic symbol of Islam, you're anathema to the Left. If you burn the American flag, the iconic symbol of freedom, you're a courageous hero to the Left.If you occupy a building on a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon, you're domestic terrorists and are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. If you occupy federally-controlled land in North Dakota, you're friends of nature, defenders of pure water, sympathizers to the oppressed native Americans, and are tolerated by federal authorities.Intellectual consistency is not a hallmark of the Left. ...nor of the federal law enforcement system. :-)
I have noticed that The Black Panthers = Heroes, while III%ers Protesting the Bureau of Land Managment = Fascist Racist Haters. Consistency isn't everything, but it's surprising how little of it there is to go around.
Given there is a war in the spiritual and material realms, that's not so much a surprise.
Mark Perry at carpediem.com has a whole archive full of Venn diagrams that visualize [mostly economic] contradictions like the Ism comic you posted.And, coincidentally enough, he's just organized them and today posted a link to that archive.https://www.aei.org/publication/my-entire-venn-diagram-collection-is-now-available/
Thanks for that, Murph. And welcome to the Hall -- I don't remember talking with you before.
I've roamed though your hall a few times, a/k/a ColoComment. ;-)When I've logged in elsewhere via the Google email account as Murph it's easier to just let it be than to switch in/out with Disqus, etc.'Tis lazy, I am.
