The Spot-On Quote Of The Day…

03 August 2010 @ 17:53

…is awarded to Stacy McCain for his brilliant and immediate commentary on today’s shooting rampage by a disgruntled worker in Connecticut.  I wish I could repost the whole thing, but here is a highlight:

For all we know at this point, the company and union officials routinely turned a blind eye to white guys stealing beer. It is entirely possible that Thornton was, in some sense and at some level, a victim of racism. On the other hand, I would be willing to bet that there were many other black employees of this company who — whatever disadvantages or insults they may have suffered on account of their race — refused to surrender to the self-pitying victim mentality that appears to have motivated Thornton’s murderous rampage.

All of us live in a narcissistic culture that encourages us to externalize blame as a defensive rationalization for the protection of the sacred self. Yet some rationalizations are more equal than others, and certain categories of victimhood are enshrined in law and culture in such a way that skepticism is forbidden. This is where political correctness becomes such a deadly poison, like an invisible gas slowly permeating the atmosphere.

Spot-on.
