The Most Beautiful of Them All

Some commentators just can't quite make their minds which is the most beautiful black tulip ever.

On Thursday November 5 one hundred Ayaan black tulip bulbs were planted in the gardens of the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum. The tulip is named after politician and author, Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

The naming of the flower took officially place in the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Attended by Ayaan herself, a single bulb was planted in the grounds of the Met.

This is where inevitably, the postmodern bane of political correctness kicks in. 

The Rijksmuseum's director, William Pijbes, also present in New York took the opportunity to assert that open, vital societies - like the one of the Dutch Golden Era (17th Century) - cannot exist without the introduction of foreign elements. (What Pijbes and his ilk really advocate is the elimination of national identity).

Pijbes also proudly emphasized that the Rijksmuseum is a house in which independent spirits can flourish. (Yeah, repeating multicultural truisms is the mark of the autonomous mind!).

The Ayaan black tulip is a long dream come true for tulip growers. Various black tulips have hit the market, but according to grower Lydia Boots the Ayaan is the most beautiful black tulip ever.

In September 2006 Ayaan Hirsi Ali became a Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington.

Over the last decade or so Ayaan established her credentials as a well known Islam critic, specifically when it comes to the fate of women in Islam (see video). 

In 2004 she co-produced the film "Submission" with Theo van Gogh. He was beastly slaughtered on an Amsterdam street by radical Muslim, Mohammed Boyeri one year later. His assassination was commemorated just last Monday, November 2.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali when serving as a Libertarian MP, after relentless death threats and constant political bickering, finally fled the Netherlands and settled in Washington.

She deserves every honor of having this politically correct feat of horticulture named after her, but Ayaan's beauty and valor are simply incomparable to anything they could ever produce.

Of Cultural Resistance, Child Abuse and Divided We Conquer

Big Hollywood has unearthed no less than 11 new Youth-for-Obama indoctrination videos of various qualities, styles and degrees of creepiness.

A few things they share however: inculcating in the young an adoration for the dear leader and an emphasis, not on their common humanity, but on what divides them.

Not a single moment are we allowed to forget that everyone belongs to a minority group, the postmodern equivalent of the class struggle. It can't be rubbed in often enough!

They never fail to point out the collectivist divide: black is juxtaposed to white, girls to boys, rich to poor, abled to disabled, the list is endless. It is how Progressives rule. It is nevertheless a by-product of another fallacy.

In"Why Multiculturalism is Racist and Evil" we explained how that works:

"Polylogism (here defined, and here seen in postmodern action) is a form of collectivist (group)  subjectivism that also produced the National Socialist racial theories. A postmodern term for polylogism is multiculturalism.

A people, racial or cultural group is seen as having to follow its own particular destiny apart from the rest of humanity (...) The irrationality of multiple 'logics' apart, this form of self-determination negates universalism and is in fact racism, with apartheid as a direct consequence.

Universalism endows the human race as a whole with basic rights, as poetically summed up in the American Declaration of Independence: (...) "that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
The most dangerous aspect in this particular instance of exploiting children for political reasons is that no one on the Left seems to be aware of any moral problem! Or do they, but do they carry on nevertheless, perhaps because the aim justifies the means? Another instance of "our collective goalis so much higher than a few individuals!"

I went into this over a year ago, in October 2008 in a post entitled "The Comprehensive Guide to Youth for-Obama" when the Presidential campaigns were winding down:
"To begin with, children of any age as a rule are innocent, vulnerable and impressionable. This is why we strive to shield them from predators and exploitation. Doses of reality are administered piecemeal in a controlled fashion, carefully dispensed when we believe they are able to handle a given situation.

Children lack the mental tool to discriminate, and are therefore open to suggestion. Precisely because their minds are like sponges, soaking up all information that's available to them, the totalitarians of our world prefer their pawns young, at the earliest age possible."
By coincidence it has transpired that the source of the Obama PropArt was the National Endowment of the Arts' (NEA) incestuous involvement with the administration; would suggest one of our intrepid new media reporters sheds his pajamas and starts ferreting into the possibility of equally inappropriate relations with someone in the dear leader's office with the National Teachers Union (or something) (tip: why not try Buffy first?).

Now enjoy the B-Cast's dealing with "V" (apparently the new "O" ... who could've thought! so much independent thinking!) and the 11 Youth-for-Obama nuggets.
