I just wrote an article the other day that said this:
Look, the fact that you disagree with the words I say is not license for you to beat me up…That’s how civilized people function! We disagree, we argue, we possibly insult each other’s intelligence, but we don’t hit people. That’s one of the first things you learn in kindergarten…
Now we know which kids grew up to be to draft Army handbooks on ‘tolerance’. They were the kids that never actually learned that hitting wasn’t an acceptable way to deal with someone disagreeing with them. These are the kids who blamed their victim constantly and they’ve grown up to be the people telling our soldier’s that their opposition to pedophilia and support of women’s rights are the reason they are being attacked in Afghanistan and, well…they should just stop that.
American soldiers should brace for a “social-cultural shock” when meeting Afghan soldiers and avoid potentially fatal confrontations by steering clear of subjects including women’s rights, religion and Taliban misdeeds, according to a controversial draft of a military handbook being prepared for troops heading to the region.
The proposed Army handbook suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture, not Taliban infiltration, has helped drive the recent spike in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces.
The draft handbook offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”
Umm, no. Someone needs a visit from their sassy gay friend right about now.
It’s not like we are trying to advocate for democracy or equality in other countries.
No, we only do that here in the United States. Women’s rights in Afghanistan, that’s not our thing, these politicians say.
Strangely similar to how liberals will claim to support gay rights and equality and then turn around and support Hamas and other regimes in the Middle East that execute and imprison gay people. Not hypocritical at all, nope.
So now we are institutionalizing blaming the victim when it comes to our troops.
Blaming the victim because they dare to advocate for equality for women or homosexuals or stopping pedophilia.
Our troops are just SO horrible aren’t they? How dare they tell a backwards culture that they are, well, backwards. How dare they institute their morality on these people, they have their own culture, just because we don’t understand it doesn’t mean it’s wrong.
But wait, it’s not my morals that say that killing gay people, subjugating women, and having sex with children is wrong (well it is my morals, but there is more) it’s my belief in individual liberty. Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness.
These are the things our military are protecting and personally I want our military to stand up for the our rights and project those rights onto everyone around them, so they can protect those people as well.
What is going to happen in the future is that a soldier is going to protect a woman from being beaten, a homosexual from being murdered, or a child from being raped and when they are murdered for it, our oh so wonderful government will…apologize for that soldier not being sensitive to that culture/religion’s differences.
That soldier? He just shouldn’t have been where he wasn’t liked. That is, after all, the same lesson the left wants Steven Crowder to learn. Why not apply it to soldiers too.
