Want to be Politically Correct? How About "The Washington Snakeskins?"
November 4, 2013
PC practitioners have decided, this year, that all costumes that point toward some ethnicity should be strictly avoided. No Indian outfits because we may offend Native Americans, no cowboy get-ups because that might require a toy six shooter and it also may offend the Native Americans, whom the cowboys will no doubt shoot, if given the chance. We can only imagine the riot that might ensue if a football fan brought his little cowboy or Indian to a Washington Redskins game.
In an effort to curb the possibility of offending minorities, or producing racial or cultural stereotypes the University of Colorado has instructed the little darlings of the sensitive generation to ‘forego’ or avoid any costume that might offend a minority or just about anyone.
It is hard to imagine students who drink themselves into comas and wander through co-ed dorms looking for sex partners being offended with an Indian costume but we must protect the mentally handicapped and socially challenged in this nation – who would believe that would include our college students.
Little wonder Jesus said, “Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.” (Mt 23: 24)
Everyone has heard the common retort that the Church is ‘full of hypocrites’ so why would anyone consider joining it. After a lifetime of dealing with church people I can safely say that this saying is largely false. Conversely, what I discovered is that if you want to find big hypocrisy you have to take an honest look at the secular world. Leading the way in today’s world of niceness and feigned civility is the PC crowd.
In New Orleans area, my home, we not only have the laid back air of the ‘Big Easy’ as a backdrop for partying and debauch but there is Mardi Gras, and of late, the new Southern Decadence celebrations of the gay community. I can hardly describe what takes place in these celebrations or what sights and sounds are to be experienced without bordering the area of journalistic porn. Men are all but totally naked, gyrating together with overtones of everything sexual.
Haven’t seen any Indian costumes among the corrupted but if it occurs we will be sure to put in an emergency call to the PC Police for some action. This is the place where the hypocrisy rears its massive abhorrent head and besmirches the twisted push for PC perfected persons in this generation, and the call to just say the right things, and now, wear the right Halloween costumes.
It is hard to fight off the inclination to address all PC nonsense with the ‘Gumpian’ expression, “Stupid is – as stupid does.” When considering the source of evil (Satan) it would be too simple.
The god of this world not only offers pathways to evil lifestyles but he actually has found a way to paint them as gentle and nice, inoffensive and civil. If you are going to live backwards, you can make it look like you are playing it forward. Will someone please look up the definition of perverted?
No, all men are not born stupid, but the arch enemy of the Almighty God is perfectly willing to lead them into a life of complete stupidity if he finds a willing heart. He is not only equipped to provide success in an evil lifestyle but he produces justifications, attractive diversions and a generally acceptable appearance to it all, all for one single, but not so low price – everything, including your soul.
Today’s PC is a pharisaical public effort to polish poop, but it is always betrayed by the lingering odor which reveals its true nature – it is hypocrisy. It is cleaning the outside without regard to the germ infested inner parts. Jesus addressed the PC promulgators of his day; the rebuke stands until this day, to wit:
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.” (Mt 23: 25, 26)
Those who put all their stock in appearances are caught up in slavery and to the great delight of the arch deceiver – they don’t even know it! After rebuking the PC crowd of his day Christ proceeded to describe them in extremely unflattering terms. The language he used would quickly come under condemnation in today’s climate of PC hypocrisy. To the PC’ers of his day, Christ said, “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” (Mt 23: 33)
Taking a cue from Jesus perhaps the PC’ers of today would be satisfied if Washington called its football team the ‘Washington Snakeskins.’ Maybe those under strict PC rules could go to the costume party this year as vipers, although they would probably not take the chance of getting stepped on as they slithered along the floor. Political correctness is not just the tripe of the trolled, but it is the slop being fed to slaves who are totally convinced they are free.
Wake up America, it isn’t just about what you don’t say or what you wear – it is what you are made of.
