A video that surfaced on the internet late last month shows grown women in what appears to be either India or Pakistan orchestrating an arranged marriage between a baby girl and a puppy.
Shared on the U.K. Daily Mail’s Facebook page, the video includes captions that denote the purpose of this bizarre procedure: To “ward off any evil.”
“The marriage was arranged as the baby started to her top teeth before she had grown her bottom set. The tribe considers this to be an ill omen,” the captions reveal.
Apparently, the tribe of villagers believed that by marrying the baby girl to a puppy, they could transfer her “bad luck” to it.
Watch the video of the baby’s wedding below:
As disturbing as this sounds, dozens of these weddings occur annually in whatever country this happens to be, though they don’t always involve children.
Four years ago, an 18-year-old Indian woman voluntarily married a stray puppy “to ward off an evil spirit,” as reported at the time by the U.K. Daily Mail.
Does this behavior prove that these people are beneath us? No. But it does lend credence to the theory that some cultures — versus individual people — are superior to others.
This was an idea expressed recently by conservative commentator Steven Crowder, who bluntly noted that the seemingly “universal” truths we take for granted in Western nations are not actually universal.
“They’re not. They’re not at all. You have places where it’s perfectly fine to steal. You have places where violent acts that would be considered felonies here in the United States are perfectly acceptable there,” he said during an event last weekend at Virginia Tech, according to The Daily Wire.
That’s why the people in the video above saw nothing wrong with their actions — actions that would have landed them in jail had they carried them out in America.
This doesn’t mean the people themselves are inferior; rather, it’s their ideas and, specifically, the culture that produces such ideas, that are inferior.
It’s likewise because of these differences in culture that many in the United States support stricter immigration controls — because they realize that importing immigrants whose cultures differ so vastly from our own would not bode well for American society, let alone its future.
It’s a fairly simple concept, but one that flies right over the heads of many leftists nevertheless. To them, support for any sort of immigration control mechanism is patently racist.
Except it’s not, is it? No, it’s smart and sensible — two things most liberals themselves are not.
