The Aesop's fable that affluent white female liberals completely forgot to read

The Greek storyteller Aesop lived over 2,500 years ago, but we still tell various versions of his many fables today. If you haven't heard of these, I seriously question your education:

  • The Boy Who Cried Wolf

  • The Lion and the Mouse

  • The Tortoise and the Hare

  • The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

  • The Dog and His Reflection

  • The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs

The list goes on and on.

Not much is known about the man Aesop, other than scattered references and rumors across history, but his compilation of "moral myths" has endured across time and space.

One fable didn't make it into the compendium of our own #SlayQueen society, however. I'm not sure that any modern AWFL (Affluent White Female Liberal) has ever heard this tale.

It's called the Wolf and the Lamb.

JD Cooper, 1883

I have a picture of a variation out of a book called "The Moral Compass" that my dad used to read to me as a kid. I recently read it to my own children.

Anyone who has paid attention to our culture for the past 30-50 years, but in particular the past 10, understands immediately why this fable's advice is sorely needed.

Let me give you a practical example. A 15-year-old German girl was raped by 11 Muslim migrants. DNA from 9 men was found inside her. The German judge, a woman, let most of them go free. Only one was prosecuted and received less than 3 years in prison.

At the trial, a German psychiatrist - again a woman - excused their raping as the outworking of trauma.

A female psychiatrist testifying on behalf of the defendants argued that their alleged gang rape was a 'means of releasing frustration and anger' stemming from their 'migration experiences and socio-cultural homelessness,' according to the Hamburger Morgenpost.

Do you see what I see? Because I see lambs making excuses for the wolves.

The stories are everywhere. I see them weekly, if not daily.

There is a longstanding meme about the type of woman who tries to rehabilitate pit bulls, or the woman that thinks she can fix criminals through counseling and social work, or the women who thinks she can fix her deadbeat boyfriend with home-cooked meals.

In that worldview, meanness is the worst offense someone could commit: This is why a German woman is going to jail for messaging one of the aforementioned rapists and calling him a "dishonorable rapist pig" (no joke, a child rapist complained to police that a woman harassed him about his raping and they arrested her).

Many strong men and women stand waiting as shepherds and sheepdogs. They've been training themselves to counter the rising evil when the floodgates finally break. They've been telling society that the wolves are wolves and that you must treat them like wolves. There is no alternative. There is no reasoning with them. If you do not put them down, and fast, their hunger will only grow.

The problem is, these shepherds and sheepdogs have to train in the shadows.

So often, if they stand against the wolves, they get destroyed by the AWFL little lambs that think it was mean for the sheepdog to put down a wolf:

And yet, reality always reasserts itself.

A time is coming, and may already be here, when wolves will be eating little lambs everywhere and no amount of angry shrieking about tolerance stop it. Pray there will still be shepherds and sheepdogs around to fight back.

The lesson of this fable is so important that it was embroidered on the massive 11th-century tapestry showing my great-granddad William's conquest of England (yeah, I am related to the guy).

Maybe it's time we started paying attention to fables again.

I'll leave the affluent white female liberals with a bonus story:
