When Is Wrong Wrong?

December 8, 2017

When is wrong wrong? As of late in our Bizarro world, it seems that more and more often wrong is right.

Repeatedly we have seen football players and other athletes rape, beat and abuse women. Is it wrong? Of course! But what is done about these actions? Nothing is done and that makes it right in the eyes of the public. The “boys will be boys” attitude is the oldest and lamest excuse around. The NFL should stand for the Neanderthal Flagrant Lawbreakers. Add to their shenanigans the whole kneeling episode and it becomes apparent even to the dullest person that the whole outfit is just plain wrong.

How about drunk drivers? They kill and maim thousands of people including themselves every year and yet we continue to see this behavior as acceptable. We invent hundreds of programs for these ass-brained folks, revoke their licenses (for which they could care less) but we rarely if ever put them in jail where they belong. Why? It has become acceptable behavior and in the eyes of the public isn’t really wrong. After all, it’s not like they robbed a bank, right?

A mother lets her three-month old child go out into the freezing night and die while she comfortably sleeps with her “boyfriend.” We don’t say it’s wrong. Instead, we bemoan the poor mother’s social standing. She’s from a broken home and is on drugs, therefore what she did wasn’t really wrong. It was just a result of her poverty and the fact that her crack pipe was full at the moment. Not wrong? Bullshit!

What about politicians? They steal and lie and we say it’s okay because “they always do that.” It is still wrong, so why not say so? And when we do say so, we are accused of everything from not recognizing their societal value to being Nazis. It still doesn’t change the fact that stealing and lying is wrong. Or did Moses get those parts of the tablets all messed up? The sexual misconduct? Don’t get me started; I can already hear the chorus of defenders claiming these perverts are “icons,” indispensable and certainly not wrong. Al Franken’s SNL buddy Jon Lovitz’s characterization of Harvey Fierstien used to ask, “Is that so wrong?” Yes Al, you little pervert, it most definitely is wrong!

The list of examples is virtually endless, including everything from education to paying taxes. We now live in a society that will not recognize or verbalize when something is just plain wrong. It’s not politically correct or it isn’t nice to say, so we bob our heads in tacit approval. We have become a nation of whining, self-excusing, smart phone clutching, non-responsive nincompoops. The next time you see or hear something that is categorically wrong, stand up and say so: It is wrong!

    You are so right Allen! This is what the Bible teaches, in the end times they will say that good is evil and evil is good!

    What is wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it. What is right is right even if no one is doing it. Not my words or even an exact quote but I couldn’t agree more.

  3. The word for the day is “hypocricy.” I think that says it all. Nice post! 🙂
