We’ve all been behind one of the smug “coexist” bumper stickers, roadway evidence of the moral superiority of the left. The indulgent notion of tolerance has actually been hijacked by the non-judgmental laissez-faire crowd, leading to respect for the disreputable, while relegating the concept of judgmentalism to society’s trash heap. Using judgment — as we discern among choices and pick the most honorable — has become taboo. Judging is wrong. Acceptance of everything is the ideal.
This is a guide to the symbols:
C = Islam
O = Pacifism
E = “Gender equality” (the LGBT agenda)
X = Judaism
I = Wicca / Pagan
S =Taoism / Confucianism / Buddhism
T = Christianity
Interestingly, those who disdain exercising judgment are often associated with the burgeoning zero-tolerance movement now infecting our schools and work places. Six-year-old first graders are suspended for using their finger to emulate a gun. Hate crimes have been enshrined in law, making some a more protected victim class than others by adding enhanced penalties to those who offend or harm them — preposterously based on their ethnic, religious or gender status.
Back to the bumper sticker which oddly appears to be enjoying a resurgence. The question remains, how do you coexist with those who have sworn to dominate, subjugate and destroy you and the freedoms you enjoy? Evidence of the violence of totalitarian Islam’s gruesome blood lust has dominated the news as extremists have beheaded, burned alive and mowed down innocents.
Michele Hickford, editor-in-chief for Col. Allen West’s Steadfast and Loyal blog, wrote about the naive thinking behind the bumper sticker in this post, “Tragic irony: Coexist artist beaten by Muslim gang in Paris.” It’s worth your time.
