“I Refuse To Be Victimized By Notions of Virtuous Behavior”

He says there's no doubt about it
It was the myth of fingerprints
I've seen them all and man
They're all the same

- You Can Call Me Al, Paul Simon

When the left embraced relativism I knew we were in trouble.

my truth relativism

Now I see how much trouble. If the New Democratic Socialists get their way 2018 will be the year that evidentiary rules are eliminated from America’s pesky judicial system. The NDS don’t feel you should have to produce evidence to substantiate your claims. After all, “my truth” is what counts. They don’t really believe in absolute truths and that should be good enough for you too. So screw the rule of law, it seems to be based on absolutes. Which they don’t believe in, did I mention that?


A few examples of how the world would work under their new rules:

  • You wouldn’t have to produce evidence of lineage to demand minority status (which, oddly enough, provides privilege in the land of white privilege).
  • You wouldn’t have to produce any actual evidence to accuse and convict a man of sexual assault, as long as it was “your truth” that it happened.
  • You would need no evidence, other than that which you’ve manufactured of whole cloth, in order to accuse a president of Russian collusion and demand impeachment.
  • And NO ONE would have to produce evidence of persecution in their native country in order to gain asylum and entry to the United States. Because our resources are infinite and no matter how many millions of foreigners show up and demand entry to our country we must let them in. And if native born Americans have to work harder and pay more taxes to support them and provide healthcare – which is a human right – even as they re-introduce their third world illnesses to us, well so be it. We probably deserve it because we’re not special. And nobody is ILLEGAL!


Their logic is…illogical. But that’s just my truth so I’m not going to do anything about it. I refuse to be victimized by notions of virtuous behavior.
