In the aftermath of the Wednesday terrorist attack in London, many took to Twitter with another “feel-good” hashtag campaign. This time the meme is #WEARENOTAFRAID.
It is another lame attempt by liberals of what Michelle Malkin calls “virtue signaling.” She explains that hastag campaigns are
“easy advertisements and maudlin displays of one’s resolute opposition to an unidentified something that must be stopped somehow by unspoken means.” It is also an effort for those with no identity of their own to identify with and involve themselves in the crisis without ever having to actually do anything.
Yet unlike previous virtue signaling campaigns like those which claim “solidarity,” the “We Are Not Afraid” campaign is particularly silly and oh-so wrong.
You see, they are afraid – afraid to offend.
The left twists themselves up like pretzels in an effort not to offend. And this is another incident of what their leftist borderless virtue has wrought. Because of their fear of offending all the wrong people, Europe is rapidly losing its identity and culture – voluntarily giving way to savages whose only goal is to conquer, convert and subjugate them. And those who are actually “Not Afraid,” will be murdered.
