The Emperor’s New Clothes

Rebekah Suzanne

But why is he naked?

Hans Christian Anderson, author of The Ugly Duckling, The Little Mermaid, Thumbelina, is the author of one of my favorite stories: The Emperor’s New Clothes.
The story is about an Emperor who hires weavers to create the most beautiful fabric ever made. The weavers, who are actually con men, convince the Emperor that the fabric has magical properties making it invisible to anyone who is either stupid or not fit for his or her office. At each of the subsequent fittings the nobles lie to the King about the beauty of the garment because they are absolutely terrified he will think they are idiots and unfit for their positions. The lie continues on and on until finally one day the Emperor is parading his new clothes in public and a little girl standing with her father states the unspoken truth: “But he has nothing on at all.” The innocence of the child and the lack of her position convince the crowd that the Emperor is in fact naked.
There are days when I read the news and I feel like the little girl in the crowd. When the heroes of the media are men dressed up as women, praised for being morally superior to everyone else, I am left wondering; do clothes, makeup and plastic surgery really change a person’s gender at a chromosomal level? Where is the biological backing in that? Does surgically modifying one's genitals change what a single thread of their DNA screams? Everyone sees it but no one will say it: The Emperor is naked.
No one cares if a black cop kills a white man but the second a white cop kills a black man the black community starts burning down their own neighborhoods. If black lives really mattered to them then why is black on black crime so prevalent? Why is black on white hate crime disproportionately high yet whites are to blame? The answer is simple; the Emperor is naked.
What about the thousands of illegal immigrant men pouring into Europe, raping women and children? In previously peaceful cities these men have created violent “no go” zones that leave city residents unprotected by the police. These immigrants subscribe to a violent ideology that calls for the systematic murder of Jews and Christians and calls for a blatant disregard for the rule of law. Yet each time one of these illegals blow themselves up in a crowded room or mercilessly butcher innocent pedestrians the media screams that the perpetrators are the victims. Is it just me, or is the Emperor really naked?

I have gone to school for a long time, faced uncomfortable truths and traveled all over the world yet every time I call out the hypocrisy of the Left’s agenda, I magically become a Nazi, white nationalist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, racist, islamophobic, fascist, illiterate, anti-Semitic, uneducated, privileged, misogynist, patriarchal woman. These senseless labels are attached to anyone who opposes the Left’s far reaching goals, regardless of the truth. Truth is truth regardless of personal bias or political agenda. Like the little girl I will not ignore the elephant in the room and I will call a spade a spade, because at the end of the day Emperor is still naked.

  1. In the supposedly true story, "Point deer make horse", the Emperor of China brings a deer into the palace and declares that it's a horse, and everyone who says, "no, it's a deer" is immediately put to death. In China, loyalty is more important than truth. Perhaps that's the case in the modern West, too.
