The screaming child at the check out counter, that is what many uber-liberal Americans sound like when they attack people like Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty.
“Mommy, I want that!”
“No, sweetheart, you can’t have that.”
“I want it! Ahhhh! I want it!”
“Ahhhh! Ahhhh!! I want it! I want it! Mommy! Ahhhh! (if I scream loud and long enough she will give in because I am annoying so many people) Ahhhh!”
“Please, can you get your kid to behave?”
“He’s a kid! Kids cry! What’s your problem? Don’t tell me how to raise my kid! OK?
Don’t judge me!”
For nearly three decades, Americans have institutionalized the social doctrine of moral equivalency and non-judgementalism. Mainly, because many of the children of the sixties are now the critical parent, most Americans, young and old, have adopted this convoluted, contradictory and illogical life management style.
Public school curriculum is based on equal outcome education; protecting self esteem; avoiding conflict and self-denial; non-judgmental inclusion and gender equality. It is reasonable to extrapolate that each generation will embrace greater degrees of ambivalence to any kind of social stigma.
So when a high profile television star has the gall to challenge that dogma, he is chastised, publicly humiliated, and ostracized, because it ‘hurts’ to be judged.
What is so sick is that those who scream ‘ouch’ the loudest turn right around and do exactly what they complain about – judge those who have arrived at a different conclusion!
‘Judgementalism’ is like vegetables in your diet; you may not like it, but the human body needs it.
