Perhaps one of the greatest existential threats to America right now (and perhaps the world) is a phenomenon that is rarely discussed. I don’t speak of white supremacy, which has been a hot topic in the media recently; rather, I speak of moral supremacy. Moral supremacists are people—in many cases, politicians—who talk down to, guilt and shame those who possess thoughts and opinions that they do not agree with. They label these thoughts and opinions as “immoral”. Moral supremacists believe they are or at least pose as somebody who has somehow achieved 100-percent moral clarity. They do this because a 100-percent morally conscious person can never be questioned or proven to be wrong. The problem, however, is that no human being can ever reach a point where they are 100-percent certain of what is and isn’t morally correct. They can only think they are morally correct, not actually know for sure. In fact, the only being who is 100-percent morally conscious is, well…God. So the ultimate goal of the moral supremacist is, essentially, to fool others into thinking they are God. If they get you to believe they're God, then they can convince you that your morality depends on voting them into office. You must vote for them to save your soul.
One of the most prominent moral supremacists out there right now is Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker. He uses the word "moral" incessantly -- in Tweets, speeches and interviews. One recent example is a comment he made after the recent El Paso mass shooting:
"I think, at the end of the day, especially because this was a white supremacist manifesto, that I want to say with more moral clarity that Donald Trump is responsible for this. He is responsible because he is stoking fears and hatred and bigotry." -- Cory Booker speaking on CNN's State of the Union
Also, this was a Tweet he posted from just three hours ago (as I write this). Notice how he also says "we must do better". This is his way of establishing his moral supremacy over us:
