As the other kids jumped and played in their shorts and tee-shirts she was probably thinking how fun it would be to join in. I feel sorry for her. For her it will never get better, only worse. The saddest part of all is that she's one of the lucky ones. She's here in America and going to school. How different her life would have been if her parents hadn't come here.
I wonder if she or her parents understand how lucky they are to be here. I don't know if they are illegals, but let's assume they're here legitimately. They were accepted. They were allowed to come here, to live here, to participate in perhaps the greatest and most successful example of the principle of liberty and freedom in the history of the world. This girl's parents chose to come here, to live here, to raise their child here. Why do they refuse to assimilate here? Why do they choose to handicap and shackle their own precious little girl? It's like an escaped convict after a successful prison break choosing to spend the rest of his life wearing that ball-and-chain. It's insane.
That's the great danger of this whole multiculturalism experiment isn't it? As these minority cultures cling intransigently to their own dress code, their own moral framework, their own language, their own justice system, new arrivals meet up with their cultural peers and these little undigestible hunks of something America should never have swallowed begin to swell and turn worse than noxious. If our own once American once Christian culture wasn't already so frail, so ill, so near death, perhaps we'd be able to regurgitate this evil mass of poison churning away inside our gut. But the way it looks now it's already too late for the ambulance, and the undertaker has his tape-measure out.
A family who swathes their tiny little girl in stifling heavy clothing in the heart of summer is insane. It's not just cruel. It's not just unfair. Cruelty and injustice are a big part of the human experience, but this goes beyond that. They're not doing it because they enjoy causing misery and suffering, they're doing it because their insane parents did it to them, and so on going back for hundreds of years. So what's their problem? Here's the litany:
- Despicable treatment of women as chattel
- Compete disregard for human life
- Blind hatred of other races and creeds
- Homicidal-suicidal monomania regarding their religion
- Obsessive-compulsive washing behavior
- Five times per day kneeling and praying wherever they find themselves.
- Taking an entire month off of work for Ramadan
