standards, the ethical quicksand epitomized by the familiar phrase
'do as I say, not as I do' are the popular replacement for that rugged
individualism upon which Amerikan greatness is built. The ubiquitous
double standard is as Amerikan as mom, apple pie and the class action
lawsuit. Korrectnik's and other leftist scumbags raised it to a veritable
art form, but playing double standard bingo is so damn easy, even
your snot gobbling rugrat can do it.
tempting to declare double standards a Korrectnik plot, but, that
misses the central point. Granted, Korrectniks Emerilized this egregious
flaw in the Amerikan character, but they don't own a monopoly on
it. To demonstrate how pervasive this character blight has become,
we'll expose this double standard epidemic by citing assorted familiar
items from your local fishwrap's front pages:
the ultimate double standard, diversity bonkers Ivory Tower eggheads
castigate 'whites' as inflexible racists who must be forced to coexist
with the properly-hyphenated, but, these eggheads see nothing racist
when they impose Educational Apartheid via racially-segregated orientations,
racially-segregated housing, racially-segregated student centers,
racially-exclusive courses, and racially-segregated graduation ceremonies.
seek to achieve 'a level playing field' by relaxing the standard
for the properly-hyphenated and tightening the standard for Asians
and white males.
forgetting all their well documented tirades against big government
- not to mention their familiar mantra about big spending liberals
- when mugged by a deficit their clan created, elephant clan true
believers excuse their clan's record setting deficit as 'a good
thing, because it's really 'small', as a percentage of the Amerikan
GNP. Additionally, they opine that, in reality, the $500 billion
deficit is 'good for the economy', besides record-setting deficits
are a Bush family tradition.
give lip service to 'equality' then demand a lower standard for
women who apply for traditional male jobs in the police force, fire
department, or military.
abolish or render coed exclusively male clubs, organizations and
colleges but defend to the death exclusively female clubs, organizations
Towers shout 'academic freedom' from their rooftops, proclaiming
their dedication to an educational forum where all ideas, noble
or profane, can be discussed, debated or analyzed, objectively,
dispassionately. The same ardent First Amendment fans implement
this 'free exchange of ideas' by imposing Draconian speech codes
on those who 'can't be trusted with a free exchange of ideas': white
males, conservatives, libertarians...anyone who isn't a militant
shriek 'hate crime' whenever the perp is a white male and the victim
one of the properly hyphenated, but keep silent when the perp is
a 'protected minority'.
The vast Right-Wingnut conspiracy embraces democracy - majority
rule - as their Amerikan birthright when they impose their own majority's
whims by: criminalizing sexual practices between consenting adults;
dictating which adults can, legally, become lifemates; outlawing
the recreational use of certain plant byproducts - pot, for example;
evicting evolution from science classrooms. But, let a different
majority - another howling mob - criminalize their cheeseburger
with fries cravings, outlaw their nicotine addiction, or banish
their SUV from the Amerikan highway, and these vast right-wingnuts
are outraged by this howling mob's assault on their individual liberty.
Amerikan double standard's Siren song lures the unwary to abandon
ideological consistency for the heady rush you get by talking from
both sides of your mouth. If you play double standard bingo, don't
expect PIG to pull its punches. PIG will expose double standards
wherever we find them, no matter whose ox gets gored.
