Moral Equivalency…Moral Equivocation

Posted by Mark on September 7, 2006

I’m always asked….well..gee Craig…exactly what do those two terms MEAN? And I reply…well…gee flaming liberal moonbat, you obviously wouldn’t know. You wouldn’t understand the meaning, even if it was pumped into your cerebral cortex.

So…for all the leftwing loons, secular progressives, and demo-bats waiting for an explanation- I’ll hand you…a specific example:

The dean of Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government defended the decision to invite former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami to speak on the eve of the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

“Do we listen to those that we disagree with, and vigorously challenge them, or do we close our ears completely?” Dean David Ellwood said in an interview published Thursday in The Boston Globe.

That one statement from Dean Ellwood can sum up in its ENTIRETY the liberal mindset. He and the leftwingnuts believe that thugs, sociopaths, psychopaths, killers, murderers, and evil monsters are on the same moral plane as civilized society. We, the civilized peace-loving world, are therefore equivalent. Our beliefs, values, and opinions are no better or worse than theirs.

I’m sure Ellwood would pull me aside and say: “why Craig…you silly pedantic neo-con you…do I have to spell it out…Mohammad Khatami is simply ‘misunderstood’…anyone with an education from a decent Ivy League school can see that! DIALOGUE is the solution. Now run along and play with the other misguided children.”

Sept. 10 was the only date available, the dean said.

On the eve of the 5th anniversary of 9/11, Harvard invites the former president of an enemy state ‘levying a terrorist war against America’ (with ties to Hezbollah and numerous other terrorist organizations) to speak.

Equivalency: the relation holding between two statements if they are either both true or both false so that to affirm one and to deny the other would result in a contradiction.

Equivocation: to avoid committing oneself in what one says.

Yep….in Ellwood’s world, there’s no wrong or right…no black or white….nothing but an endless sea of GRAY.
