Stop Drawing Lessons...
This is something that is really irritating to read. It’s when a purported conservative writer extrapolates some broad general lesson out of a topic-of-the-week news story.
The main problem is that they tend to take a disgusting example of a freak (movie star, criminal, etc) and use it to “cast a light” on “us” or explain what said freak says about “us” as a whole or “our” society.
First off, there is no us!
Second, this “we are them" horseshit is just slippery moral equivocation dressed up as virtue signaling false humility.
Freaks and freaks. Identify them as such.
Or better still,
Orcs are Orcs.
We are not Orcs.
We are Men.
Stop drawing lessons and Draw A Damn Line, Already!
