Decline of the Holy American empire

Brilliant post at FredOnEverything..

In it, he opines:

Further, the ghetto rules everywhere, seeps in, or threatens. Americans are not social climbers, but social descenders, rappelling deliberately into the grubby depths. On the radio one hears regularly such lyrical confections as “Muthahfucka, muthafucka, she a ho, shit.” Ah, but the chief rule of discourse today is that one must never offend the offensive. You must never suggest that they straighten up and mind their manners, mouth, grammar, and work ethic.

Everytime I turn on the TV, I see this "culture" glorified and pushed and spotlighted in the news and on television shows. Talking heads and politicos tell us we have to be "tolerant"...when what they mean is the civilized among us have to be tolerant of those of us who aren't civilized. We have to lower our expectations of humanity so we aren't shocked and insulted by have grunting stupidity thrust into our faces.

The end of the US is coming folks, and it won't be pretty.
