The moral relativism exposed by Reid's remarks

The current dust-up with Harry Reid and his racist remarks about Obama have exposed more than Reid's covert racism. It has, through the aftermath, exposed the fallacy that is moral relativism. Not in what Reid said. That was just stupid. But in the response and damage control effort being conducted by the famous race hustler, Al Sharpton.

Sharpton, who wasted no time going point on this one (a lot faster than Obama did on the Detroit terrorist attempt), has been putting forth the line that what Reid said was offensive, but not racist. And he caveats that with Harry has already proven his racial props simply because he is a Liberal Democrat.

But what it really highlights is the underlying mentality behind Relativism. Much has been made that this is a double standard, that if a Republican, ala Trent Lott, said these things he would be out of here, banished forever to the racist rubble pile. But no, says Sharpton. Reid is one of the "good guys" who made an unfortunate comment that is easily forgiven. What we have here is relative racism.

So then what you really end up with, same as in what is the definition of morality, is there is no true racism separate from the person or circumstances in which the offense occurs. And forgiveness can be granted, but only by those who deem themselves the proper arbitrators, like the Reverend. These are people who can feel insulted yet forgiving because, I suppose, the offender is worth saving.

Maybe this is the real step forward we have all been hoping for and heard about when Obama became president. Because if the Liberals are allowed to do to race relations what they have done for our standards of morality, which is aid their destruction, then consequently the destruction of the traditions of our civil society will also be complete.

And in it's place the void will be filled by the relativism of Sharpton, Reid, Pelosi, Clinton, Edwards, Dodd, Frank, and Obama. And that is a relativism with a small R and no morality attached.
