All Lives Don't Matter

...At least if you are a liberal. Via Twitchy, it has come out that Martin O'Malley, the other guy running for the Democratic nomination this year, said that "all lives matter." In most times and places, such a statement would be the the banal pabulum of kindergarten religion class, right after naptime and before getting to what color the sky is. Unfortunately for Mr. O'Malley, 2015 America hardly has the common sense of a classroom full of kindergartners.

Witness here, also via Twitchy, Mr. O'Malley's rapid backpedaling. I don't think I've ever heard so much terror in a man's voice. He knows that, to stay safe from the wolves circling him, he needs to think fast.

 So what justification has been offered for bringing Mr. O'Malley before the Inquisition?
"When we are specifically talking about black death that is not all inclusive."
It seemed to me from watching the footage from the Netroots Nation that we were not talking about black death. Rather a group of intruders loudly and rudely tried to steer the debate to themselves. And with such insensitivity mind you!

From Wikipedia:
Spreading throughout the Mediterranean and Europe, the Black Death is estimated to have killed 30–60% of Europe's total population. In total, the plague reduced the world population from an estimated 450 million down to 350–375 million in the 14th century.
So insensitive! So triggering! I would like my apology now! How dare you not only suggest that my people's lives don't matter, but cement your callous disdain by speaking casually of one of our most traumatic experiences! I've never been so insulted!

Maybe you got a chuckle out of that, and maybe you didn't, but its illustrative of the climate of narcissism in which all forms of debate in the West fester. Everything is personal, and the more you can make the discussion about yourself and your feelings, the more you win. Any context that allows you to take offense, no matter how unnatural, is a valid one. And woe to the one who tries to burst your bubble...

Just look at how people responded when Hillary Clinton asserted the universal value of human life. The answer, not well. Read the whole thing, it's enlightening. Indeed, per the Twitchy Staff "Regardless of context, those three words should not appear together in sequence in America in 2015." Whites have become the untermensch. Remember guys, if your lives matter, black lives don't, unless, of course, blacks need your tax base.

The Left and its dependents believe that nothing is going to change. They believe that they are going to speak, and we are going to listen. Unfortunately, more and more of us are tuning out forever. What will they do when every plea falls on deaf ears, and we find out, through cold remorseless nature, whose lives truly do matter?
