Why can only straight, white male Christians* be oppressors?

When reader V the K e-mailed a link reporting that “75 percent of religious persecution being carried out against Christians,” I sent back a hasty response, edited for clarity:

Shhh. . . don’t tell the left.  It’ll upset their narrative.  Remember, white male Christians are responsible for the most persecution in the world.

One day, someone will have to examine why so many on the left have decided that the only oppression that matters is that done by white Christians or Jews.  Why do so many in the West, those with a European Jude0-Christian background, assume the victim always be the “other”?

Well, it seems one of our readers has.  Writing on his blog, he looks at how these Westerners have turned out society’s tradition of self-correction against itself:

Part of the trouble with this noble self-criticism, based as it is on the multiculty prescript that one may critique one’s one people but not another’s (especially if brown), is that the other groups are not doing this. While Westerners flagellate themselves in this ongoing and interminable White Lent, the other tribes are flexing their muscles, singing their virtues and heartily agreeing with us that we do not deserve to live. This is a part of why Obama’s repentance and apology tours provoke me so much.

A lot of liberal behavior reminds me of two particularly female psychopathologies: bulemia and self-cutting.   Liberals, especially the comfortable classes, alternately gobble up the pleasures of the West and then, guilt ridden, vomit them out. And it seems that they are happiest when they are cutting up their own bodies.

Read the whole thing.

Is nuclear hysteria delaying relief efforts in Japan?

Tonight, I saw part of a segment of On the Record with Greta van Susteren where the eponymous hostess was interviewing a reporter at a shelter in Japan.  While that reporter had his arm around a young Japanese man who survived the tsunami (at the Sendai airport), neither he nor Greta ever let the survivor talk about his experiences.

They did let him show his daily ration, one package of crackers and an orange, reporting that survivors aren’t getting much food.  Wonder if that’s because all the media hysteria about radiation levels has been preventing relief services from entering the area devastated by the natural disaster.

Meanwhile, we’re finding out that radiation levels beyond 12 miles of Japanese nuke plant are near normal.

UPDATE:  Maybe the delay in relief is due instead to damaged infrastructure:

Blustery snow, fuel shortages and widespread damage to airports, roads and rails have hampered delivery of badly needed assistance to more than 450,000 homeless trying to stay fed and warm, often without electricity and running water in shelters cobbled together in schools and other public buildings.

In attempt to further civil discourse, Biden compares Republicans to those who blame rape victim

Sometimes following Joe Biden’s logic is like trying to find a coherent thread in the ramblings of a man who’s had one too many glasses of gin.  At a Philadelphia fundraiser in Philadelphia Friday, the 38-year Washington veteran “compared Republicans in Congress to people who excuse rapists by blaming their victims“:

“When a woman got raped, blame her because she was wearing a skirt too short, she looked the wrong way or she wasn’t home in time to make the dinner,” Biden said.

“We’ve gotten by that,” he said. “But it’s amazing how these Republicans, the right wing of this party – whose philosophy threw us into this God-awful hole we’re in, gave us the tremendous deficit we’ve inherited – that they’re  now using, now attempting to use, the very economic condition they have created to blame the victim – whether it’s organized labor or ordinary middle-class working men and women. It’s bizarre. It’s bizarre.”

If a Republican had said this, it would lead the evening news.  Oh yeah, I know .  That’s been said before.

And what cheek for Biden to blame the Republican for giving us this tremendous deficit they’ve “inherited.”  The deficit, after increasing in the first three years of the Bush Administration was declining until Biden’s Democrats recaptured Congress in 2006.  And then increased even more rapidly when Biden’s ticket won the White House.  As per Allahpundit:

And so, two years and two months into The One’s presidency, with the new Republican House desperate to get him to slash spending and reform entitlements, somehow even the unfathomably huge deficits he’s running are an intractable problem he’s inherited from the GOP.

So, if Republican are like those who attempt to blame the victim for a rape, what’s Biden doing?  Eschewing blame for himself and his party?   (more…)
