Just to be Clear

#MeriamIbrahim = Courageous use of social media to protest an obvious evil and advocate an obvious good.

#bringbackourgirls = Stupid morally preening narcissistic slacktivism.

Why? Because the former is approved by Manufacturers of Thought in the Thing that Used to Be Conservatism and the latter is condemned by those same Manufacturers of Thought (due to ritual impurity from contact with Michelle Obama) and a large percentage of consumers of that Manufactured Thought do as they are told and mutually reinforce one another while ostracizing those who notice the cognitive dissonance.

If, however, you think with the Church and not with tribal allegiances, it is obvious that both causes have merit and that it does not matter that the latter happens to have been picked up in liberal circles. You rejoice that people in liberal circles are protesting an obvious evil and advocating an obvious good and don’t worry about who gets the credit.
