Hook, Line and Sinker
By Tammy Derouin
The Progressive Left likes to promote social justice. So what is social justice? Most definitions are pretty similar. Words like fair and just are used to map out some sort of directive for individuals within a society. It doesn’t take long for the word distribution to pop up. Distribution of not only wealth but privileges and opportunities are thrown in the mix. Who would determine what is fair or just within the society? If you dig a little deeper a motive begins to emerge. Within the mumble jumbo of key words and desirable objectives a conspiracy begins to unfold.
In order for this Utopian quest to get underway, the population needs to buy into the idea. That’s not too hard. Who wouldn’t agree that people should be treated fairly and justly? Well, there’s the proverbial Hook.
The Left works its magic and begins to vilify anyone or any institution which is opposed to what they, the Left, feels is an absolute right, entitlement or fact. They will force their will by elevating their chosen causes or groups. What they interpret as equal treatment under the law becomes special rights for many. It may even be interpreted as overdue justice. So, if some individuals now feel they don’t have the rights they once had, it’s okay because they had them for too long. Many fall for this unequal justice as some sort of payback and jump on the band wagon. They enjoy riding out the proverbial Line.
