President Obama has opted to participate in the “It Gets Better” campaign, where high-level celebrities record short videos for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transexual teenagers telling them that whatever discrimination they face now, “it will get better”.
What “universal principle” does the President employ to communicate his message of tolerance and acceptance? See for yourself:
“Each of us deserves the freedom to pursue our own version of happiness.”
If ever there was a mantra of radical relativism, this would have to be it. This is untethered, false freedom taken to its logical limit. Does the rapist have the “freedom” to pursue his happiness if he decides it involves molesting others? Does the murderer deserve the freedom to pursue a personal version of happiness that includes senselessly murdering innocent people? Seriously?
In the video that the President recorded on this topic, he repeats verbatim the same message about “each of us deserves the freedom to pursue our own version of happiness” and expands it “[each of us deserves the freedom] to speak our minds, to not fit in, most of all, to be true to ourselves. That’s the freedom that enriches all of us. That’s what America is all about.”
We have a President who is an expert in expressing … pablum.
