Some Cultures Aren’t ‘Just as Good as Ours’

Multiculturalism is the dream state of the extreme left, not just in the U.S.A. but worldwide. From the pointy-heads at university, to the self-congratulatory oafs in Brussels and Washington D.C., these leftists sternly warn us all that any assumption that one culture is somehow better than another is “racist,” or at the least gauche. Everyone is the same, they say and you are a creep to think otherwise.

And they are simply wrong. Some cultures are better than others. A recent BBC report proves my nay saying of multiculturalism is right, too.

On Jan 7 the BBC posted a report on the increase in child sacrifice in Uganda[1] where so-called witch-doctors are increasingly killing children in faux religious practices in order to bestow good luck on adults.

The BBC reports noted that one witch-doctor told them that he had “clients” that “regularly captured children and brought their blood and body parts to be consumed by spirits.”

Additionally the story related that the Ugandan government said that such murders are increasing as reported by the country’s “Anti-Human Sacrifice Taskforce” head. Doesn’t the fact that Uganda even has an anti-human sacrifice taskforce say something very clear about where Uganda’s culture stands on the ladder of righteousness?

And what was this rise in murders of children blamed on? Capitalism, naturally. Absurdly the BBC and the Ugandan government peg this rise in crime to capitalism.

…the crime is directly linked to rising levels of development and prosperity, and an increasing belief that witchcraft can help people get rich quickly.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. The fault is not that prosperity and development is rising. The problem is that these people’s backwards, savage culture sees nothing wrong with killing a child or two in order to increase their fortunes.

Many African nations still practice slavery, abduction, child prostitution, as well as human sacrifice and have done so since anyone can remember. So, it isn’t the intrusion of capitalism and prosperity that has driven this increase in such crimes against humanity. It is their endemic culture.

Murdering children for “good luck” isn’t just a neutral and different cultural choice. It is evil. Their culture is bad and should be shunned by the civilized world and actively fought against.

Despite the rapturous claims of multiculturalists everywhere, all cultures are not equal, all cultures do not offer something good to the world. Some are evil and deserve to be destroyed. It’s just that simple.
