We’re reaching new levels of absurdity. And while it’s so ridiculous it’s amusing, it’s a serious cause for concern that people cannot see what’s in front of them.
Here’s what NPR’s spewing these days:
“‘Telling People You’re Native American When You’re Not Native Is A Lot Like Telling A Bear You’re A Bear When You’re Not A Bear.’”
That’s the title of a genius work from a Native American comedian, who has grown tired of people claiming they’re Native American without proof of purity. ‘Pretendians’ he calls them.
Before gawking at Native American supremacy, let’s do some Mad Libs for a minute here:
“‘Telling People You’re
Native American A Woman When You’re Not Native A Man Is A Lot Like Telling A Bear You’re A Bear When You’re Not A Bear.’”
So it kind of sounds like they’re onto something…
But NPR and the woke are only willing to take this truth so far. Quite the contrary. They’re more than happy to deny reality when it fits their agenda.
What’s even darker and confounding is that they’re more than willing to play race supremacy when it suits them.
In the end, it’s hard to tell if these people are on the left or the very far right, awkwardly standing with their Nazi and white-supremacist arch enemies.
Here’s more from NPR and the comedian:
“Practically every Native American has run into someone like this who says that they got a DNA test to prove they’re Indigenous, or that they have a distant ancestor who was supposedly a Cherokee princess. And there are words for people like this, pretendians (ph) or wannabes. High-profile instances that come to mind are Elizabeth Warren, who claims Cherokee identity, but has since apologized for doing so, or Andrea Smith, an academic who also claimed Cherokee identity but could not provide proof of her enrollment in the tribe. She claims her Native identity is legitimate. And that’s not even mentioning people playing Indian on screen.”
Time for more Mad Libs:
Native American Aryan has run into someone like this who says that they got a DNA test to prove they’re Indigenous Aryan, or that they have a distant ancestor who was supposedly a Cherokee princess Hitler youth. And there are words for people like this, pretendians (ph) or wannabes.”
Why does this not alarm NPR? Unfortunately it’s become too difficult to see what’s in front of them.
The longer we spin in this gyre, the less sense it all makes and perhaps the less hope we have for all people to have as fair of a chance as possible in life. Men can self-identify as women and vise versa, and can even compete (and destroy!) in the sporting events of the gender of their choice, but don’t dare say your Native without proof. That’s crossing the invisible line they’ve drawn. Let’s hope they don’t start with punishments for that crime.
For us, the reasonable approach is to simply to expect people to be frank about who they are. There’s no denying biology, as hard as that perhaps is for a very marginal portion of the population who suffer from gender dysphoria. As for the various cultures and ethnicities that exist around the world, we can celebrate all of them, not preferring people based on that because it can lead down a very dark path, and not pretending to be what one is not, in large part because it is simply dishonest and serves no worthy purpose.
Why is this middle ground becoming increasingly hard to achieve? It seems now our only hope is pointing out the obvious and showing people how Islam can help people achieve this beautiful middle ground, the one Malcolm X witnessed on his trip to hajj. How beautiful is this sentiment he expressed in his autobiography, and how wonderful it would be for this to replace all of this nonsense and constant identity crises society undergoes:
“’In my thirty-nine years on this earth, the Holy City of Mecca had been the first time I had ever stood before the Creator of All and felt like a complete human being.’”
This constant searching for identity through sexual preference, fantastical feelings and obsessions of embodying and manifesting the opposite sex, and even through one’s ethnicity or skin color alone only leads to dead ends and a world full of confused people. Academia’s and now the media’s effort to name, rename, and categorize everyone based on these often superficial delineations is leading to a world in which we soon will not be able to communicate with one another, but in which we might just regress to tribalism and segregation.
