Earlier, almost reflexively, before I had time to consider the political ramifications, I expressed agreement with Glenn Reynolds' view that what someone does sexually really doesn't matter:
. . .Glenn really doesn't care whether Kos is gay. Nor do I. It's about as relevant to me as what he eats with his morning coffee. . .Now that I've had time to think it over, I'm realizing that this statement might very well be considered Leninistic!
For example, here's Ann Coulter (in her bestseller, Godless) specifically attributing this I-could-care-less-about-sex meme to Vladimir Lenin:
Sex . . .[i]s a natural function that should carry no more moral consequence than drinking a glass of water, as their demiurge Lenin said.That's pretty scary, don't you think? For starters, it explains the thinking behind the fluoridation of water plot.
But what truly scares me is that while I've expressed similar not-caring-about-sex sentiments before, it now turns out that whether I knew it or not, such thoughts are Leninist in nature. And this time, I was agreeing with Glenn Reynolds when I failed to care about another blogger's sex life. I realize that there are people who might call such thinking immoral, but until today I had not known that it was a form of Communism!
The implications of this are disturbing indeed. Because, if Lenin thought sex was the moral equivalent of drinking a glass of water, and I said pretty much the same thing, then that must mean that I am a Leninist -- a Communist! And, if I spouted Leninism by way of expressing agreement with Glenn Reynolds, well, what does that suggest about him?
All telltale signs point to Commies of one stripe or another.
But, lest anyone think I am venturing off into the never-never land of paranoid conspiracy theories, let me hasten to add that I have more proof.
All you need to do is simply read the following facts, and simply connect the dots:
What this means is that by the mere act of saying I didn't care about Kos's sex, I may have inadvertently assisted the Coulter-Clinton-Reynolds, Marxist-Leninist conspiracy.
These days, you can't be too careful.
UPDATE: A couple of very important points. While I thought I could rest up (and catch some Zs) after exposing this complex operation, via Justin, I now see that Glenn Reynolds has the audacity to not even hide his role!
And on top of that Dean Esmay in the comments below has accused me and my thoughtful commenters of being "Trotskyist traitors!" (As opposed to "Trotskyite" traitors -- which is a very different deal.)
Obviously, I'm on the right track!
UPDATE (06/25/06): Thanks Pajamas Media for the link. Yes, we should be afraid, very afraid.
But if only we could remember that we have nothing to fear but sex itself!
This Coulteral Leninism stuff is harder than drinking water!
(As always, the devil is in the details. . .)
