Multicultural Idiots

You may have heard the story today about the new law in Afghanistan that makes it illegal for a wife to refuse to have sex with her husband. The law also requires that a woman receive permission from her husband before she leaves her house. This law was passed by the government that the US helped put in place after unseating the Taliban after 9/11. I saw the story on CNN today and was, like most people, ouraged at the fact that we live in a world were uncivilized morons like this are allowed to govern, let alone live. Then they started putting up viewer emails and I couldn’t believe my eyes. The email that shocked me was off the screen so fast that I was sure I was mistaken about what it had said. But later I ran across the transcript on CNN’s Cafferty File political blog. And sure enough, there was the email from the viewer and it was as stupid as I originally thought. Here it is:

Dave writes:
It is not our place to tell other folks how to live! Yes, this is wrong in our eyes, but it was not that many years ago that a man in the U.S. could have never been arrested and prosecuted for the same crime.

The utter and complete nonsense of the statement just, well, makes my head explode. What it really does is point to the dangers that multiculturalism or cultural relativism breeds in a law abiding society. Nothing is right or wrong. There is no good. There is no evil. It’s all just differing paradigms and opinions. There’s a great video on YouTube of Mark Steyn addressing the problems with multiculturalism. It is well worth eight or so minutes of your time.

  1. What I can’t get over with guys like this is that they cannot see their own hypocrisy. If they are so concerned with respecting the opinions and beliefs of everyone in the world, why do they not respect the opinions of people who disagree with their views on cultural relativism. It is as if they believe that they are the only arbiters of right, wrong or the lack thereof in the world. By voicing their relativistic views in a contrary fashion, they have violated the basic ideas of relativism itself. Shouldn’t our none relativistic ideas be as legitimate and relative as any other idea?
    So Dave, why don’t you shut the hell up, and try a little consistency. I am as consistent as I can be as I say this because I believe in right, wrong, and the fact these are not ideas that are simply practical, but are provided to us by a Power greater than we are.
    Honestly, these relativists are simply a bunch of pompous asses whose sole desire is to feel like they are smarter than the person next them while wallowing in their own intellectual laziness.
    The best thing to do would be to force these guys to walk down the middle of a street in Northwestern Pakistan. We’d quickly see how fast their relativism would melt away if they survived the experience.

  2. I advocate tolerance toward any concept except intolerance. 😉
