Liberals Glorify Savage Aztecs

Is there a limit to how much evil barbarity the liberal establishment will embrace to advance its jihad against Western Civilization? There is not. Propagandists are even rehabilitating possibly the most demonic regime ever to exist. It was imposed on Mexico by the Aztecs until Hernán Cortés brought civilization from afar, putting an end to the pointless, industrial-scale butchery that had caused natives of the region to subsist in terror.

NPR uses its taxpayer subsidy to attack the West by promoting the malicious excretions of revisionist historian Matthew Restall:

In When Montezuma Met Cortés, Restall … says Cortés was a “mediocrity” with little personal impact on the unfolding of events and refocuses on complex territorial battles between the Aztecs and their rivals.

Stop right there. Hernán Cortés conquered an entire empire with nothing but 500 tired troops, his wits, and sheer nerve, thereby putting an end to genocide. Of all the obscene lies that are passed off as history by progressives, calling Cortés a “mediocrity” is among the most outlandish. If you want to find mediocrity, look among the murine apparatchiks comprising the liberal establishment in places like academia and NPR.

For history more awe-inspiring than any fiction, read about the exploits of Cortés in History of the Conquest of Mexico by W.H. Prescott. Yes, Cortés played the natives off against each other. That’s what I mean by using his wits. It doesn’t change the fact that he conquered Mexico against astronomical odds. He belongs in a class with Alexander the Great.

Getting back to NPR’s corrosive moonbattery,

Spanish testimony portrayed the Aztecs and other Indigenous groups in the Americas as uncivilized, savage barbarians. But continued excavation of the Great Temple and Tenochtitlán has helped change that perception.

The Aztecs enslaved people from hundreds of miles around and dragged them into Tenochtitlán to have their still-beating hearts publicly ripped out of their chests by the thousands per year to appease evil gods. They indulged in ritual cannibalism. They had not mastered the concept of the wheel. But it would politically incorrect to call these uncivilized, savage barbarians “uncivilized, savage barbarians.”

“Tenochtitlán was a huge city,” says [archaeologist Raúl Barrera Rodríguez]. “It had public institutions, a whole system of government, public servants, schools, public services — it was a totally organized city.”

If only NPR’s liberal readers could learn from this that bureaucracies do not make you civilized.

Hold on — here’s where cultural relativism lurches into the realm of nightmare:

In 2017, Barrera’s team uncovered the Huey Tzompantli, a tower of human skulls that was a monument to the Aztecs’ highest deity, Huitzilopochtli, the god of war and the sun. The conquistadors described a terrifying satanic sight. It was precisely the opposite for Aztecs.

“It is important to understand the worldview of the Aztecs,” says Barrera. “The tzompantli was about giving life.”

Towers of human skulls, amassed by murdering innocent victims, are all about giving life. It just depends on your point of view — and if you take the point of view of Western Civilization, you are a bad person, who wears xenophobic blinders and cares not for the plight of the oppressed.

This provides an idea of what NPR et al find preferable to Western Civilization:

Before sacrifices could be offered to Tlaloc, the ground had to be wetted with human tears, usually the tears of children, whose fingernails would be pulled off by Aztec priests to make them cry before they were slaughtered.

The idol of Huitzilopochtli … was made from amaranth seeds and held together with honey and human blood…

The idol was built every year and decorated with rich garments and a golden mask during the festival of Panquetzaliztli, which was held on the winter solstice in honor of the birth of Huitzilopochtli. At the end of the festival, the idol was broken apart and eaten, and sacrificial victims, covered in blue body paint and arrayed in the costume of the god, had their hearts cut out.

The Aztecs weren’t the only pre-Columbian barbarians to behave like this. As noted earlier, savages ritually murdered children in massive numbers in faraway Peru so as to improve the weather. Let’s hope this does not shed any light on what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of the Green New Deal meant by using “indigenous wisdom” to prevent the climate from fluctuating.
