Warning - this topic is an uncomfortable one, so if you are of soft skin I suggest not reading.
At the Canadian Blogger Conference/Drinkfest my colleagues told me about a woman who was raped in Haiti, but blamed her rape on "white patriarchy." I found it impossible to believe and incredulous. A woman, no matter how warped her political beliefs, would not forgive the ultimate crime against a woman (rape).
We couldn't find the article and they were adamant it did happen, but after another 4 hours of drinking the conversation left my mind.
Until Aurini found it and e-mailed it to me.
I know this happened 3 years ago and many people have probably already read it. However, since it has been whitewashed from the internet, not nearly enough people know about this. Furthermore, it is important to bring up again, because it highlights just what a threat socialism, leftism and liberal is not just to the individual, but society.
First, let me state that leftism IS a mental disorder, cognitive dissonance being the slightest of the symptoms. For a brain to ignore reality and create rationalization and excuses so it can hold onto its flawed political ideology parallel to reality is dysfunctional. But if it gets to the point a person puts their political ideology ahead of their own personal sovereignty and well-being, then that is full out psychotic. Sadly, however, you see this happening all the time. Ignorant youth voting for "Obama" only to have him further endebt them. Women disproportionately voting for socialism even though it ruins their lives, etc. But to get to the point you are sexually violated and STILL stand up for your ideology (in this case, a sexist "anti-white" "anti-male" incredibly extreme version of leftism), leaves me speechless and is only more proof such ideological zealotry is not only psychotic, but self-destructive.
Second, realize why leftists (typically, though not always) tend to be the ones putting their ideology ahead of their own self-interests - they have nothing else to live for. They have no real value. If there is a reason to buy "Enjoy the Decline" it is because of the chapter "Revenge" where I go into detail as to just what sad and pathetic lives most liberals and leftists live. Look at your average leftists. What defines most of them is their fear of effort, rigor, challenge, and work. They are lazy. They don't want to try and they (ironically) spend more calories of energy trying to make things "fair" in life than they would have, had they tried. Ergo, they major in worthless degrees, pursue easy make-work careers, and really achieve nothing of value in their lives. They are worthless human beings. But dare anybody hold them up to standards of production and the real world, they vehemently get violent, emotional, and accuse their accusers of false crimes (racism, sexism, bigotry, etc. etc.)
Amanda Kijera (the woman who blames her rape on people like me - white male) fits this bill perfectly, not out of coincidence, but because this is a law. She is a "civic journalist and activist" (I could not find her biography page). Not only is she contradictory (journalists should not be activists, they should be unbiased and be part of no activism group), she immediately confesses to the world she doesn't wish to try via her chosen "profession" and goes on some crusade to mask her ineptitude. But when the reality (in the horrific form of rape) confronts her ideology, she sacrifices herself so that her ideology may remain in tact.
The reason why is deep down inside she knows she, herself, has no value. And without her ideology she is nothing. Thus, the disgusting result of tolerating rape and blaming anybody but the rapist.
Third, and worst of all for the rest of us, when the individual is so meaningless, worthless, and pathetic, it bodes ill for the rest of society. Namely, it allows for a tyrannical state to take over. For if the individual has no meaning, then it will search for it in some form of a "false god." Some become "born again Christians," others join cults, but in a democracy well on its way on The Road of Serfdom an ever increasing state is more than happy to provide these weak minds with their false god. Educational systems are primarily there for indoctrination, making children believe "going green" and "sharing" trump individualism and success. Colleges and universities are there to provide "adult" minds the reason and rationale for taking other people's money. And the media and government are only too happy to make people focus on bread and circuses, as they slowly erode the individual behind closed doors. If there is a threat the Amanda Kijera's of the world pose to liberty and western civilization it is that they are so inferior in terms of accomplishment compared to their liberty-loving counterparts (and they loathe this fact so much), they are committed to the point of being raped to make everybody else equally worthless and miserable as them. They are so selfish they have no problems torpedoing the world's greatest society to maintain their petty cognitive dissonance.
In the end the reason you have a disgust in your stomach over a woman who was raped and then essentially blames you for it, isn't because of the false accusation. It's because of the fear that socialism can be so convincing of weak minds that it turns them into, mindless, selfless, ideological suicide bombers.
