The Logic of PC MC

http://marklile.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Rubiks-Cube-1024x682.jpg

Yes, there is a logic to PC MC (after all, there can be a logic to various forms of madness...).

Ostensibly, it is predicated on one major factor:

1) Most Muslims Just Wanna Have a Sandwich.

And secondly,

2) We don’t want to “paint with a broad brush” and generalize from the Tiny Minority of Extremists to the vast majority of innocent Muslims around the world.

We see, therefore, a lurking assumption:

3) There is no substantial connection between the Muslims who ostensibly are harmless, and the Muslims actually perpetrating extremist acts.

#3 and #2 are considerably strengthened by a perception that the vast majority of Muslims are a collection of Ethnic Peoples, thus pushing the enormously powerful additional buttons of White Guilt and Respect for Diversity in order to Avoid Being Racist.

Thus,

4) When anti-Islam analysts and pundits make statements or arguments that threaten #2, the PC MC person is psychologically prompted to go on the defensive. His defensiveness in his mind is immediately transferred to the noble and lofty (and self-righteous and ethically narcissistic) principle of defending the rights and dignity of untold millions of innocent Ethnic People.

This then becomes powerfully augmented when the fear of "another Holocaust" haunts the PC MCs and the Leftists, with Muslims being the "New Jews" forever the potential victims of genocide if we the West go down the road of criticizing Muslims too much (never mind that the problems Muslims themselves generate provoke reasonable criticism of their ideology, if not condemnation and alarm).

Once we see that this is what is really going on, it no longer is a baffling mystery why the PC MCs so doggedly maintain their otherwise irrational position, and why there are so many PC MCs throughout the West -- indeed, as a dominant and mainstream sociocultural fact. And there’s no need to reach for a conspiracy theory about that Dastardly Leftist Cabal of Nefarious Elites to explain this sociopolitically broad and comprehensive Problem of the Problem (the primary Problem being Islam; the Problem of it being the continuing Western myopia to it).

There is another interesting facet to the PC MC problem - namely racial and religious interbreeding.

The Romans knew to encourage their soldiers to marry local women and start families as a war strategy.

So, every single white person who has a relative who is half black or half Muslim or half Jewish risks alienating their entire family by pointing out the obvious flaws with modern black, Muslim or Jewish behavior.

Based on their comments over time, I believe that a quite primary reason that I was banned from commenting on Gates of Vienna is that the owners have black and Jewish relatives (in addition to friends and donors).

In PC MC land, only nonwhite feelings may be hurt, only nonwhite opinions and concerns and problems matter, and half white children identify as nonwhite.

To be clear, when I state that it is white Christians who will have to solve the problems of the world that is because I look at how black Christians practice Christianity at home and abroad and I see disturbing trends including the fact that white Christians significantly 'finance' black Christianity through various substantial national and international aid programs - and foreign black Christians incorporate polygamy into Christianity. Based on black intercity births, it could be said that homegrown blacks practice polygamy without the marriage certificate! The devolution of intercity blacks from Christianity to Islam gives the thoughtful person great pause to believe that black Christians will be much help to white Christians.

In addition, I look at the voting trends of blacks (whether Christian or not) who nearly uniformly voted for Obama because he was black DESPITE the fact that quite a few black American Muslims MUST have realized that Obama was Muslim - and probably told their Christian black relatives and friends about that reality.

What I am saying is that the black American community is FAR more tied into Islam (via relatives and friends) than the white American community, and yet the larger black 'Christian' community nearly uniformly voted for a black Muslim president.

Finally, there is the issue of black Africans practicing various hybrid versions of Christianity that incorporate African religions and customs - with Chrislam being one example. This issue points to Protestantism writ large where blacks do NOT even know or understand the religion that they are 'joining' - or changing - for the demonstrably worse. What a mess!

Which, of course, brings me back to the owners of Gates of Vienna who show the same issue: They publish TS as the ideal PC MC Christian because he believes 'anything goes' (a la 'How dare anyone tell me if I am a Christian or not - even though I disagree with the main tenets of Christianity'). TS presents Ann Barnhart as if she is the philosophical one-off instead of him. And, I comment that it is Ann Barnhardt who is quoting centuries of church fathers who are more learned and holy than TS who proudly disavows much of Christianity. So, in a stunning and (what is surely a) self-defeating show of intellectual and spiritual dishonesty, the owners of Gates of Vienna ban me from commenting on the entire blog. To which I say, the truth hurts....

The main characteristic of PC MC is that it requires people to LIE to gain various rewards - and PC MC punishes people who refuse to LIE by banning them from participating in society.

It is this characteristic that unites PC MC people across all other differences. And so, the owners of the Gates of Vienna have more in common with Muslims than they might want to admit to themselves.

P.S. Pastor James David Manning does give me hope for black Christians....

Still, I question if Manning is a government agent - used to parrot the truth in an overstated and outsized way so as to make people question the truth....
