Beware The Emotional Ploy To “Put Politics Aside”

When someone says that we need to “keep politics out” of something, be it a football game or a recent tragedy, you can usually rest assured of one thing: A political agenda is afoot.

What advocates of that agenda mean by “keeping politics out of ________” is that you need to keep your political opinions out of the way of their political opinions.

Sadly, we’ve been provided with many examples of this lately.

We’ve got emotion-driven “conservatives” by the boatload comically claiming that not standing for the national anthem is somehow bringing politics into an otherwise non-political situation, as if singing the national anthem isn’t itself an inherently political thing.

Then over on the other side of the Hypocrite Snowflake coin we have Leftists like Hillary yammering on about how in the wake of the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas we need to “put politics aside”…and pass more gun control measures.

Seriously.

So what’s the takeaway lesson here? What can we glean from the rank hypocrisy of self-serving Snowflakes on the Left and Right?

Many things, I’m sure, but one that stands out is: Beware the myth of neutrality.

When emotion-fueled zealots speak, they often do so from a place so insulated from reality that they imagine their positions on issues to be the default universal objective reality for all of creation. They’re often so deep in their bubble world fantasyland that they actually believe that singing a national anthem is not an inherently political activity. They think it’s “just what people do”.

When these Snowflakes talk – be it about their precious Socialist Pledge of Allegiance or their precious Socialist gun control agenda – they’re always coming from a specific political perspective and they’re always striving to advance that perspective, whether they realize or not.

Those who do realize it and spew their propaganda anyway are liars and deceivers.

Those who don’t realize it are well programmed drones just thinking what they’ve been told to think and doing what they’ve been told to do.

On that note, we should all join in saying: Well done, public schools!

None of this would be possible without you…which is why you exist, of course. 😉
