Remember how horrible, how awful it was when the Taliban, then in control of Afghanistan, destroyed the Buddhas of Bamiyan?
It was barbaric, it was closed-minded, it was something that appalled the modern Western mind. Surely, surely! liberal, sophisticated Westerners would never do anything like that!
Now, can someone please tell me how the American left, who want to destroy all representations of the Confederate battle flag, differ from Mullah Omar and the Taliban, who were just so overwhelmingly offended by the Bamiyan Buddhas? I can see no difference, no difference at all, except, of course, that the multicultural left are just so, so intelligent and sophisticated.
