Have you ever been in conversation with someone when they say something that you are sure doesn't mean what they thought it meant? You don't know how to react, you don't know if you should point it out, so for the moment you bite your lip and wait to see where they go with their argument. Maybe they will elaborate, perhaps they will rectify because in your mind no one could be that obtuse.
I understand everything is relative nowadays, at least that’s what most people think. Words, however, still mean things, and you cannot redefine a word, or pretend it means something it clearly doesn’t because your polling data suggests it will have mass appeal.
Recently the narrative from the left has been, oddly enough, about morality and decency. The hair sniffing king himself has insisted that we must make America moral again, while others keep going on about decency, dignity, virtue, and having a moral compass.
I don’t know what you think the words moral and decent mean, but as long as you’re all in for killing babies after they’re born just because you feel like it, allow me to be highly skeptical of you knowing their meaning. And yet, they are simple words. It's not as though old uncle Joe was throwing around words like diaphanous, or evanescent. They are words that most English speaking folks know the meaning of, and what's more, can connect actions to.
It may be cognitive dissonance, the pathology of psychopaths, or just politicians being quintessential politicians, but when you can speak on morality and decency with a straight face given all the policy positions you’re championing, creating legislation is the last thing I want you doing, never mind presiding over the largest economy in the world.
I don’t want people who can’t seem to grasp that killing babies while in the womb is immoral in charge of deciding anything that would impact me, my family, or my community. There are many other policy positions we can point to and scratch our heads over because you can't bridge the gap between them and the word morality, but the baby murder has to be number one with a bullet.
If you’re claiming to be a moral and upright person yet somehow can’t bring yourself to see that murdering a defenseless baby is immoral, then there’s nowhere for us to go from there. There’s no bridging that particular gap, there’s no coming to some sort of compromised understanding.
As long as the motto of the new left regarding babies "is kill them now or kill them later," the words moral or decent should never spill from their lips, and if perchance they do their hypocrisy and inconsistency should be highlighted and pointed out.
The reason that they keep talking out of both sides of their mouths is because they can get with it. Maybe that shouldn't be the case anymore. Perhaps we should apply the same standard to everyone vying to be the leader of the free world, peel back the masks, and judge them on the content of their character, and their ability to string two words together that are their own, rather than something the test group said would connect with the audience.
