Another inconvenient bigot

Published

on

The left in America claims to occupy the moral high ground on bigotry and xenophobia. They claim that they uniquely possess an open-mindedness, tolerance, and welcoming spirit. That’s their narrative.

It’s sadly wrong, and proven so every day.

The chairman of the Vermont Democratic Party–home of Sen. Bernie Sanders–is named Faisal Gill. A 48-year-old man named Christopher Hayden was arrested for sending threatening, anti-Muslim, e-mails to Gill, who is Muslim. Hayden is a Democrat. Quite inconvenient.

To be sure, there are many open-minded, intellectual, tolerant, and truly wonderful people who happen to hold leftist political views. I’d love to sit down and have coffee with Rep. Seth Moulton from Massachusetts’ north shore, for instance–a former Marine and great guy. I’ve heard Anderson Cooper will give you the shirt off his back, and George Clooney will wash it for you.

The most inconvenient fact for the left is that bigotry isn’t tied to political orientation. It’s much more tied to mental health, education, emotional stability, and upbringing. College and post-graduates tend to lean more Democrat, and church-going Christians lean Republican. The sight of Berkeley students rioting is quite inconvenient to the narrative that education is the hallmark of non-violence.

However, the left refuses to accept the facts. They continue to press a false narrative.

Gill, who Vermont Democratic Party officials say is the first Muslim in the nation to be a state-level party chair, attributes the increased frequency of race- and religion-based harassment to the presidential campaign of now-President Donald Trump.

Gill would really have us believe that Trump incited a Democrat to send threatening emails to his own party chair because the man is a Muslim.

“I want to terminate my registration as a Democrat,” Hayden allegedly wrote on May 24. “You make me sick. I want you out of my state you freak.”

In philosophy, this fallacy is called “no true Scotsman,” because no true Democrat would be an xenophobic anti-Muslim bigot. Therefore he must be a closet Republican.

They also offer the converse argument that anyone who supports or voted for Donald Trump must be a bigoted, closed-minded fool, prone to violence. They’d have us believe that 62 million Americans are potentially dangerous bigots.

This argument in itself is dangerous, and creates the conditions for violence. Any educated person who repeats it has to realize that Democrats can also be pushed to political violence. James T. Hodgkinson proved that.

Floyd Lee Corkins, who in 2013 tried to massacre the Family Research Council’s office staff, “kill as many people as possible and smear Chick-fil-a sandwiches in their faces as a political statement,” also proved it. And that was when Barack Obama was president.

Jared Loughner, who shot Rep. Gabby Giffords in 2011, was never a Republican. But the New York Times still (shamefully) tried to trot out the discredited conspiracy theory that Sarah Palin was somehow responsible for inciting the shooting, in an editorial published after Hodgkinson’s attempted massacre in June.

The truth that Democrats and the left like to ignore, cover their ears and yell “LA LA LA” when told to them, is that violence is not confined to the set of people identified as “not liberal.” Hate is not a result of conservative thought, or Donald Trump.

Until the left, which controls most of the press, can accept this fact and stop advancing false “no true Scotsman” arguments, it’s going to be very hard to combat real bigotry and violence.

For this reason, the left truly occupies the low moral ground.

Marco Rubio whips out Bible verse that goes after the Florida recount debacle

Marco Rubio whips out Bible verse that goes after the Florida recount debacle

There are two prevailing opinions pertaining to the Florida election and subsequent recounts. Democrats generally feel like it’s good to “count every ballot” until they win, even if that means “finding” more ballots to add to their candidates’ tallies. Republicans have been fighting against the recounts despite that play coming across ingenuously to voters on both sides.

We should want every valid vote counted. The operative word there is “valid.”

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a Catholic, Tweeted a Bible verse that seemed apropos to the current debacle in Florida.

One might even say this draws in one of the favorite punching bags for Republicans, former presidential candidate “Crooked” Hillary Clinton. That wasn’t the intent, I’m sure, but it’s always fun to laugh at Hillary.

3 reasons President Trump should offer Asia Bibi asylum

3 reasons President Trump should offer Asia Bibi asylum

There are certain political moves that can be considered “no-brainers” for anyone in Washington DC. Offering persecuted Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi asylum is one of them.

The drawbacks of doing so are few but potent. It would enrage hardline Muslims in the United States who may go after Bibi and her family, but that’s a risk she’ll face anywhere she goes. It would put US citizens and military personnel at greater risk than they already are when traveling abroad, especially in Muslim majority nations like Pakistan. Lastly, it would spark negative press against the President who would ask whether or not he would do the same for a Muslim in a similar circumstance.

All of those negatives are mitigated by three important positives.

  1. It goes against the bigotry narrative. Don’t get me wrong. Mainstream media and leftists will still try to paint the act of offering asylum to a persecuted Pakistani family as racist because she’s Christian. Thankfully, most Americans are smart enough to see through that false narrative.
  2. Pakistan won’t mind. If anything, their preference would be for America, which is already evil in the eyes of most hardline Islamic Pakistanis, to accept a burden that will only perpetuate a narrative that already exists.
  3. It’s the right thing to do. Any time the President of the United States can do the right thing, he should. Lately, there just haven’t been many opportunities to do so.

Every day that passes brings Asia Bibi and her family closer to the dangers that are closing in on them in Pakistan. They need to be taken in as soon as possible. Italy, Germany, and even Canada have offered to step up. The United States needs to do the same.

Why does the Left have the same agenda after they turned socialist?

Why does the Left have the same agenda after they turned socialist

What does it say about the Left when they admitted to the truth, but kept the same ideas?

There was a time when the nation’s Left vehemently denied being socialist. No one was supposed to state the obvious truth that their agenda bore a striking resemblance to communist ideas from ancient Greece. Nor were they to be compared to that expressed 500 years ago in Sir Thomas More’s work ‘Utopia’ [Published in 1516]

Even when it was obvious with admitted socialist Senator Bernie Sanders agreeing with the Democrats in most respects, the Leftists still denied reality. Such is the case that, lies, deception and denial are part and parcel of their usual tactics. They still persist in denying that they incessantly demanding gun confiscation, while demanding gun confiscation.

The Left’s miraculous transformation to the obvious.

Then a few years ago something truly miraculous took place, some polling data showed that those who were unfamiliar with the oppression and mass murder that is endemic to socialism began to warm up to it’s promise. By ‘warm up’ we mean that some fell for the prospect of free health care, free college, free housing, free money, etc. Never mind that those promises were as worthless as Obama’s oft repeated lie that one could keep your health plan.

Suddenly Bernie Sanders became a ‘rock star’, followed by a cascade of newly minted socialists. What once was verboten to admit became the in thing to be an up and coming communist. Almost overnight, Democrats of all stripes became admitting what has been obvious for decades, that they were Reds through and through. Yes, red is the true colour of the socialist-Left, but that story of yet again another deception will have to wait for another discussion.

Nothing changed in the Left’s national agenda, why?

Strangely enough, aside from a few cosmetic items, the nation’s Left has the same policy ideas they had before they admitted the obvious. Back when she was First Lady, Hillary Clinton spearheaded a drive for nationally socialized health care. This is now one of the Left’s biggest vote-buying schemes, and socialism’s biggest goodies. They can admit to its collectivist in nature now, but they denied it previously.

Back when they were trying to sell the disaster soon to be known as Obamacare, they had to avoid bringing up the topic of the term ‘redistributing wealth’ a staple of socialism if there ever was one. Such would also have to be the case with their promises of ‘free healthcare for all’ since money doesn’t grow on trees.

Liberty Control is the last of our examples being a vestige of every socialist regime. The collectivist ideologies have to rely on force to redistribute wealth as well as suppress any opposition when the glorious promises cannot be fulfilled. They can’t very well do this with an armed citizenry, thus one of their highest priorities is to grab those guns. The Left has been on this same little quest for years, incrementally edging closer and closer to their ‘firearms–free’ nirvana.

The Takeaway.

It should be patently obvious why the Left’s national agenda never changed from when they denied being socialists to admitting the truth of the matter. They were dyed in the wool socialists all along, they just couldn’t be honest about it, as is the case with everything else they do.
