Every time there is a terrorist attack, the moral relativists can be counted on to come out of the woodwork to educate the world about how all belief systems are equal, and western civilization is just as evil and horrible and awful and blah blah friggin’ blah. Then it is all of the usual leftist self-loathing nonsense about the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, and What Have You Done For Me Lately bullshit! (built civilization?).
I’m simply done with these people.
I loathe Twitter. It takes complex topics and distills them down to the lowest common denominator. It is a medium of exchange designed for stupid people and meme level discourse. Which is why leftists think it is fantastic. However, there are a handful of conservatives and libertarians who are so mean spirited that we simply can’t help but engage the truly stupid masses to draw them out so the whole world can see just how dumb their philosophy really is.
As the International Lord of Hate, I am duty bound to participate.
This exchange is from Twitter the other day. Because my regular blog readers hate Twitter, I’ve collected some of the hilarity because I love you. Because copying and pasting from Twitter is a formatting nightmare, and there were dozens of people commenting back and forth, many posts are missing, and some of these might be out of order, but overall, this will give you the gist of the conversation.
This Matthew Battle guy was dumb even by the Moral Equivalences crowd standards. As a result ome of these exchanges pretty damned funny.
Hon. Matthew Battle @librab103 I have to check who has killed more people in the last 10 years, the West or islamic terrorist!
Yes, Nick Searcy! @yesnicksearcy No, dipshit. You said “Christian.” Prove it. Then say some other stupid shit we can laugh at.
That’s Nick Searcy from Justified. If you follow Nick, you will see that he mocks idiots all day. It is fantastic. The dude is an artist. So I scrolled up and discovered that he had a live one. Christians are the real bad guys and Christians murder people for Christ all the time! Damn. This Battle dude is a Moral equivalence poster child. Engage! Engage!
Larry Correia @monsterhunter45 Boko Haram and ISIS have killed more people this week than Christian organizations have in decades.
Dude, Boko Haram just killed over a thousand in NIgeria. Pull your head out of your ass.
The only group claiming the deaths to be 2000 is the army which cannot be trusted!
So your defense is Boko Haram probably isn’t THAT bad? Man, you suck at this even by moral relativist standards
and I have meet/seen some evil people from all religions!
Wow. Compelling. We put our murderers in prison. It is pretty awesome..
Great, what does that have to do with all religions have bad people
Statistics, motherfucker. Raw numbers. Moral equivelence is chickenshit.
Hon. Matthew Battle I give you the drug cartels in central and south America.
Larry Correia Drug cartels? Your example of murders in the name of Christianity are drug cartels? Keep scrambling.
Hon. Matthew Battle showing that Christians are no better than these radical islamists
Drug cartels represent Christianity the same way cheese represents the moon, you fucking goofball.
Drug cartels are criminal enterprises. They don’t murder for Christ. They murder for turf and cash
OMG, ha ha, hey everybody, get this: drug cartels are FULL OF CHRISTIANS. Who knew?
Those crazy, crack-dealing Christians!
Hell, by those standards do the Yakuza and Triads represent Shinto and Buddhists?
What Christian group out there kills people for NOT being Christians? Any ideas?
What do you call a christian who kills for shoes? For Drugs? For money?
A criminal. Then Americans arrest, prosecute, and jail him.
Evil asshole is an evil asshole, just statistically some groups have a LOT more assholes.
Yeah, when working with cartel hitmen I’m always shocked by how regularly they attend bible study.
How many people are killed each day in the US?
About 40, but mostly in democrat cities over drug money. Next?
I wonder how many of those 40 were killed by christians!
Yeah, when T-Bone shot Jizzy Dawg over that crack slinging corner, it was straight up for Jesus.
Hon. Matthew Battle Honor killings, beheadings, suicide bombers have existed in many religions!
Yeah, you know those southern baptists, with all their sharia law and suicide bombs
Hon. Matthew Battle @librab103 Many would argue that the PFLP is a Christian group!
Dude, they’re Marxists. And exclamation points are not your friend.
Seriously, over the last few days because of the Moral Equivalence crowd I’ve seen every modern pseudo Christian terrorist organization possible brought up in these arguments. The Relativist will toss out some acronym call it a Christian organization and assume that people will just be too lazy to look them up.
Sadly for them, I co-authored Dead Six and Swords of Exodus. I read about terrorist organizations for fun. PFLP was founded by a Palestinian Christian, but if you look up their own dogma they’re Marxist-Leninist, and Christianity doesn’t show up anywhere in their crap. (and their founder has been dead since ’08 and irrelevant for far longer) I’ve seen the Relativists bring up the IRA a lot, but the 80s called and want their terrorists back. The only splinter group of the IRA that is killing people right now has about 50 members. I even saw one jackass bring up Naga Separatists… And holy shit, that is scraping the bottom of the trivia barrel. They’re a rebel group in India that did some stuff years ago, but then splintered into two smaller groups, so small and irrelevant that they don’t actually rate their own Wikipedia page.
The Relativists could just save time and post I’m Bad At Stats, But FEEL SO HARD!
Larry Correia @monsterhunter45 Drug cartels and communists? Man, Christianity sure is a big tent.
My religion is awesome. No matter how stupid you are it would still condemn me for killing you.
Yeah, I’m pretty proud of that whole western civilization thing we built.
Hon. Matthew Battle @librab103 Yet anytime you prove them wrong they attack you!
Larry Correia @monsterhunter45 Most Christians are nice. Luckily for us, you blundered into me.
And surely, @monsterhunter45, we can’t forget all the times you cut the heads off your bound prisoners
guillotine? Famous implement of… Oh, atheist French revolution. Nice.
Larry Correia So, a nation state executing someone is the same as Jihadis sawing their head off for a video?
Hon. Matthew Battle because our society as a whole says it is okay?
Larry Correia Societies decide some things are worth killing over. Since you’re not a slave, you should thank yours for that.
Hon. Matthew Battle You are talking about the same society who said it was okay to own slaves for hundreds of years?
Larry Correia Yep, and then we decided Democrats weren’t allowed to do that anymore and stopped them
Hon. Matthew Battle Took you guys until the 1960s before there was equality! What was the hold up?
Larry Correia Democrats.
Larry Correia@monsterhunter45Only western society freed ours. You should go talk to the Islamic world now.
I am saying that people like you and your anti-islamic rants do not help! They just make things worse!
That is actually a fascinating glimpse into the psychology of the Moral Relativists. I haven’t gone on any anti-Islamic rants. On the contrary, I truly do believe in religious freedom just like I believe in free speech. Honestly, I think the people who are most screwed over by the Moral Relativists are Muslims. Western cowards unwilling to track down and destroy terrorists are enablers. Most of the body count created by the Jihadi asshole crowd are Muslim. It is regular Muslims who end up suffering because of the Jihadis.
Standard disclaimer, there are 1.4 billion Muslims in the world, so it is an obvious no brainer that we’re not at war with all of them. Duh. That said, best intelligence estimates are that there are between 200-400 million among them who think it is perfectly acceptable for Jihadis to saw your head off for being an infidel. The number of those actually pulling triggers and making bombs are a fraction of those millions, but that’s still 200-400 million people who aren’t dropping a dime and ratting out the dude with the bomb factory in their neighborhood.
Larry Correia@monsterhunter45 Math is racist.
yes it is!
Of course while this was going on the Courageous Internet Atheist Brigade showed up to tell all the religious people how they are all equally evil. These Twitter things go by so quickly with so many participants that it is hard to keep track of all of them. I spared one kid because I respect his father.
Moral relativists love to bring up the Crusades. Sadly, they know dick about actual history, so it turns into peaceful innocent Islam being invaded by horrible mean awful Crusaders… Now frankly if anything that is racist and insulting to middle easterners. In reality their empires were at the height of their power, Islamic armies were powerful, and they had some brilliant generals. The Crusades were actually a long series of sort of interconnected wars between two rival super powers.
They also leave out the part where Islam had repeatedly invaded western and eastern Europe, conquered Iberia, and got blocked in France. They tend to forget the part where Islam owned Iberia for generations. Hell, I’m half Portuguese. Centuries later, and my dad’s DNA is 6% North African and 2% Middle Eastern.
I bet in a few hundred years the Moral Relativists with their vast knowledge of history will be lecturing our descendants about how the Christian Americans invaded poor, helpless, innocent Germany because they hated Pagan Aryans, because that would be about as accurate.
Then you’ve got the morally smug atheists trying to educate Christians about what is in the bible. Hilarity ensues. (Hint, the New Testament replaced and supplanted the Old Testament, so as you’re quoting Leviticus you’re just looking dumb). Somehow they always manage to do this with the same smug, self-righteous tone as anti-gunners “educating” gun owners about gun safety or Occupy types “educating” business owners about economics. Sadly, I was too busy responding to the dumbass above to spend much time with the atheists.
But one stupid fucker in particular did the whole meme-storm of posting idiotic pictures with dimwitted slogans, over and over and over.
Wow. A meme that poorly restates someone’s fundamental beliefs on the internet! MIND BLOWN
It doesn’t poorly restate them, your beliefs really are wacky and absurd. Mormons especially
Yep. But somehow I manage to be more successful, smarter, more popular, richer, and happier than you. That has to suck.
For those of you just tuning in, I’m Mormon, but please keep in mind that I’m not best representation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, because I really struggle with all that love and forgiveness stuff. 🙂
He then posted a rapid fire bunch of memes about how dumb and silly Mormons are. You know, all the same ones they had left over from when Romney ran for president. I was busy with the stupid Battle guy and couldn’t give him my full attention, so after he posted one about how Mormons are sexually repressed (based upon the musical from the Southpark guys)
I’ve been married to a hot athletic woman for 17 years. I guess being repressed is fucking awesome.
Now back to our Moral Relativist dipshit. There are dozens of people posting back and forth. If I got up to go to the bathroom I’d come back and have 100 notifications, so there are lots of tweets missing, but you guys get the idea.
you cannot fault the western powers nor Christianity for the CURRENT situation
it’s hard to solve anything nor want to solve poverty when groups like boko haram kill
I agree but what is anybody doing about it? Nothing!
Larry Correia@monsterhunter45 Of course we’re not doing anything. The west is paralyzed because of moral relativist cowards like you.
Hon. Matthew Battle @librab103 We can only blame the west for what is going on over there!
Larry Correia@monsterhunter45 Well obviously. You’re a leftist, so everything, everywhere is western civilization’s fault.
How about Anti-balaka killing innocent muslims?
You mean the militas that formed because they were tired of being murdered by Jihadis? You are bad at stats
Again, don’t try to out terrorist trivia a guy who made #3 on the list of Spiritual Successors to Tom Clancy. Balaka means machete, and they named themselves that because they were tired of being hacked to pieces with machetes. Of course, Africa being Africa, self-defense quickly turns into payback, and everybody is killing everybody.
so killing innocents is okay in your book is what your telling me!
Nope. But your best example of moral equivelence is a group formed as a result of being massacred by jihadis. Duh
Islamic rebels overthrew a government, declared sharia, and massacred people, who formed a militia and fought back. Simple really
so it is okay to kill innocent Muslims because some other group of Muslims were attacking you?
Larry Correia@monsterhunter45 Okay and expected are two different things, idiot. As usual, Jihadis started it and Muslims suffer.
When you massacre villages, you shouldn’t be shocked when the villagers fight back, moron.
In a war, terrible things happen. Innocents die. Maybe Jihadis should quit murdering African villages
I have been threaten by so called christians in Florida!
Yes, I can’t imagine why Florida Man would threaten you. So, tell us more about how Boko Haram is the real victim.
Boko Haram is just a by-product of that!
Yep, Islamic jihadi slave trading warlords in Nigeria are the fault of western civilization. Got it.
Sending in the west will just make things worse!
So this stupid fuck demands that the west save everyone, then condemns then for doing anything.
There there your mother still loves you no matter how stupid you act!
I don’t know about that, but your mother sure loved everybody at that bus stop
The problem is it is people like Larry who attack a group of people instead of the people!
You got me. I’m racist against stupid people.
Yes, of course, @monsterhunter45 is the problem. Not the Islamo-fascists murdering innocents by the thousands.
Larry Correia@monsterhunter45 Obviously, I am the spokesman of decadent western capitalism.
Wait, that’s a JOB? Holy crap, I’ve been doing that for FREE my whole damned life.
Yep. Koch Brothers pay me in gold teeth taken from poor people. It is a sweet gig.
great defense buddy.
Larry Correia@monsterhunter45 And I’m not your buddy. You are human excrement. I’m insulting you so more people can see how asinine your side is.
keep insulting me. Make me feel all warm inside!
That warm feeling is from your bladder control issues. They have products for that now.
I have a moral compass. it seems yours is broken! Maybe find a different religion?
If I convert to Islam, will you defend my right to saw your annoying head off?
Daddy Warpig @Daddy_Warpig Jan 13 Just catching up, but apparently you’re pro-murder, for opposing the murderers the other guy supports but he’s anti-murder.
Yes. Only when he says it, it is somehow even dumber.
I knew this was a bad day to Internet.
And that pretty much sums it up. 🙂
