So I am reading a recommended article from a progressive blogger. Needless to say it was 'fantastic' (first definition).
In throwing out an example of what the US would do if Canada or Mexico started firing Hammas style missles at us, he concluded:
"Our appropriate response wouldn’t be to bomb the hell out of the nearest Canadian or Mexican city, but to collectively look into mirrors and earnestly ask ourselves, “What have we done wrong to incur their wrath?”
WTF??!! My mind just screen dumped. Seriously? How stupid is this?
Lets see you get mugged at gun point. Do you wonder “What have I done wrong to incur this wrath?”
You read about a rape in a local park. You ponder “What did that person do wrong to incur this wrath?”
A friend is hospitalized after an altercation with an abusive spouse. "What did they do to deserve such a beating?"
Your kid is continually bullied and beaten up at school. "What are they doing wrong?"
Blame the victim? I did hear some of this inane chatter after 9/11. Does anyone sane actually believe those 2974 people did something to deserve what happened?
I seriously hope this is not a progressive stance.
