Breaking: survivors are experts on everything

Published

on

We were told that survivors of the horrific shooting in Parkland, Florida, knew more about gun violence than we ever could.

We were told that their suffering made them experts.

We were told that we couldn’t scrutinize their claims, either because they’re children or because to do so would demean their suffering as survivors of an unspeakable tragedy.

In short, we were told they were off limits.

I can understand granting leniency to grieving survivors. People should be left alone to mourn. But once they take to the podium to push an agenda, they become public figures, and public figures are subject to public scrutiny.

In addition to that, I care nothing about the fact that the Parkland activists are children. Their youth will not stand as Kevlar in the public sphere. If they want to take the stage with adults, receive the right to vote as adults, and lobby for legislation like adults, then I’m going to evaluate, criticize, and tear apart their arguments exactly the way I would for an adult who said such embarrassingly idiotic things.

To do any less essentially concedes permission for insufferable ignoramuses like David Hogg and Cameron Kasky to continuously spread lies and malicious attacks against Dana Loesch, conservatives, and an organization whose sole mission is to defend a constitutional right.

More importantly, once these survivors are handed an open mic on gun control, they’ll feel justified and even obligated to sound off on other topics they know equally little about.

As seen in an official Twitter interview on Monday, David Hogg has apparently graduated from his factless tirade against firearms to a more encompassing position as shaman supreme for identity politics. To name just a few examples, Hogg flaunted his virtue-based expertise on white privilege, the patriarchy, college debt, healthcare, and net neutrality. He insisted that the underrepresentation of women and minorities in government is responsible for the lack of diversity of thought in politics, that the NRA is turning America into a dictatorship with its dirty money, that the political elite only want people in retirement homes voting, that Bernie Sanders is to blame for difficulty in suing gun manufacturers, and, of course, that the NRA has blood on its hands.

Never mind that virtually everything he and his classmates said was false. Never mind that there’s no such thing as a full semi-automatic weapon. Never mind that the 2nd Amendment applies to far more than just handguns, or that almost every problem he listed is the result of bigger government, for which he now enthusiastically stumps.

Because he’s an expert, you see? He’s a survivor, so his moral legitimacy outweighs your capacity for reason. Forget what your fully developed prefrontal cortex is telling you, forget everything you’ve learned by actually studying the issues at hand, and listen to this wise, irreproachable child! Don’t worry about every stupid thing he’s said or done, and certainly disregard the virtue signaling.

Instead of criticizing, be grateful that you’ve lived to see these marvels of the universe, these angelic children who’ve come to save us from woe. Like a phoenix from the flame, they have risen out of the ashes of devastation to become the mainstream media’s most indispensable analysts. What would we do without them? How would we know which policies to implement and whom to accuse of murder by association?

After all, studying the issues is futile. Thank goodness for survivors — children so morally superior that they’ve become the undisputed experts on every problem facing America.

The Collective Irony of the Left.

Published

on

By

While the nation’s Socialist Left deviously pretends to be ‘Liberal’ or ‘Democratic’ it actually functions undemocratically against Liberty.

For all of their pretence about being ‘Liberal’ or ‘for the people’, the Left is extremely oligarchical. Examine the Left’s Socialist national agenda, taking note many of its beliefs that are handed down from a select few that are to be accepted by the rank and file without question. Also, consider what happens to those who stray from Leftist orthodoxy.

Contrast this authoritarianism of the nation’s Left with the free-thinking albeit chaotic nature of the Pro-Liberty, Conservatarian-Right. While the Left will all parrot the same talking points for the outrage of the week. It’s extremely difficult to convince those on the Right to use the proper word in describing the opposition. [ Leftist in place of Liberal to be exact ]

Leftists ‘Independently’ marching to the exact same music.

Look at the protest marches sponsored by the usual suspects of the oligarchical Left, events from around the nation will feature the same talking points emblazoned on the signs, the same slogans, down to the very same headwear.

Then look at what happens to those who may stray from the Left’s authoritarian plantation. Hollywood is supposedly all-inclusive of every viewpoint, except those who espouse Conservatarian, Pro-Liberty ideals.

This is the larger point inspired by a column by Dennis Prager in The Daily Wire were he first makes the point recurring point that it’s leftism — not liberalism – that is the problem here. He goes on to talk about Whatever The Left Touches It Ruins.  This is endemic to cases of a small cadre of Leftists deciding what is artistic or how the country’s history should be taught.

The only way to save Western civilization is to convince more people that leftism — not liberalism — is a nihilistic force. Quite literally, whatever the left touches it ruins.

So, here is a partial listing of the damage done by the left and the Democratic Party:

The most obvious — and, therefore, the one more and Americans can resonate with — is the near destruction of most American universities as places of learning.

When you attend an American university, you are taught to have contempt for America and its founders, to prefer socialism to capitalism, to divide human beings by race and ethnicity. You are taught to shut down those who differ with you, to not debate them. And you are taught to place feelings over reason — which is a guaranteed route to eventual evil.

So, too, one cannot watch late-night television if one desires to simply be entertained before drifting off to sleep. Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and other hosts have changed late-night TV into left-night TV. Why merely be funny when you can use your monologues to advance your left-wing views?

If you treasure American and Western civilization, fighting the left — something all liberals and conservatives need to do — is the greatest good you can engage in at this time.

This is what happens when an ever-shrinking band of authoritarian Leftists decide that art should be scatological instead of uplifting. Or the example of small groups of ‘Comedians’ deciding that we have to be made to care about their ‘progressive’ agenda. Then there is the case of the corporate leadership of Citibank or Bank of America arbitrarily deciding the limitations of our basic human Liberty of self-preservation. [Note that Wells Fargo is bucking the trend standing up for Liberty] These are all examples of a Leftist ‘elite’ making decisions from their virtual mount Olympus for everyone else to follow.

The Take Away

While the Left likes to keep up the pretence of being ‘Democratic’ or ‘Liberal’ for that matter, they are neither. This is why we must do everything we can to expose the Left’s deceptions whenever possible.

Political warfare: Here’s why Trump should NOT fire Mueller, Rosenstein

Published

on

Whether you like it or not, Americans are in the midst of a civil war, a war between incompatible, opposing ideologies; each side vying for political power to wield over the entire country.

Unfortunately, when it comes to political war, Constitution-loving Americans have one tragic commonality: tactical naiveté.

This should come as no surprise. After all, we are comprised of those who appreciate law and order, of those who play by the rules, revere fair and just referees, and prize good sportsmanship. To a fault, we aim to play fair, projecting our own values upon the millions of our fellow countrymen.

Wake up!

It’s time to get real…

A PARASITIC ARMY:

The highly-motivated and heavily-funded Regressives – those who have secured political power on the left and who now pull the Democratic Party’s strings – are exceedingly organized, are remarkably skilled in the art of anticipatory synchronization of mass action, are adept at behavioral manipulation tactics, and are equipped with a fleet of public relations power players.

Like leaches, the Regressives have strategically acquired positions of power within their host animal – the American bureaucratic, governmental machine – and act only in their own ideological and political interests, even if that means the death of their weakened, unsuspecting host.

The Regressives play to win, fight dirty, and are not bound by scruples or honor codes. Their singular goal is to win at all costs.

Every action by these subversive schemers is carefully choreographed and implemented in service of their unholy cause. Case in point: the Mueller team’s recent raids of President Trump’s personal lawyer’s office, home, and hotel room.

THE DEVIL’S FIDDLE:

Like many on our side of America’s political civil war, I am alarmed by Special Counsel Mueller’s ever-expanding, “Russia probe,” especially the FBI raid upon the President’s personal lawyer.

Understandably, I’ve observed the chorus of calls for President Trump to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as well as the DOJ’s Rosenstein. An ever-growing number of people on our side has begun to put pressure on the President to take actions toward these ends.

 This is a mistake: the Regressives are playing us like a violin.

For months and months, our political opponents have been engaged in organized, subversive, provocative efforts in hopes of goading the President into firing Robert Mueller and/or Rosenstein. If President Trump were to in fact proceed in doing so, it would be a dream come true for the devious Democrats.

MoveOn.org has even been promoting a “Mueller Firing Pledge,” in cunningly strategic and proactive, yet sleazy anticipation.

Make no mistake. The raids on the President’s longtime, personal lawyer was a strategic move, judiciously designed to evoke a reactionary decision from the President.

Political war is war.

Deploying a Malevolent Militia:

Months ago, Democratic operatives established organizations, websites, and campaigns for precisely this occasion… should President Trump proceed in firing Robert Mueller. Thanks to their awe-worthy, disciplined efforts at recruitment, the Regressives have successfully enlisted an estimable 200,000 “troops.” All are on notice and battle-ready, prepared mass assembly within a matter of moments.

Their battle plan is simple and has been proven effective: utilize large numbers and pure showmanship to transform America’s streets into a stomping ground for the dissemination of propaganda.

Their slogan: “Nobody is above the law.”

Their battle: the “March for Truth.”

Back in December of 2017, after the President made an off the cuff remark about Robert Mueller, Newsweek published an article entitled, “If Trump Fires Mueller, More Than 170,000 Plan to Protest.” The Regressive enlistees were eagerly awaiting their call to arms, anxiously hoping that our President would fire Mueller: finally, this single act would validate their increasingly unhinged ideations of an America entrapped by a justice-obstructing, dictatorial villain.

The Newsweek article spoke of the well-organized, heroic plans and grandeur plans of the Regressives should Trump fire Robert Muller:

The plan to respond to a potential Mueller firing builds off previous protests since Trump took office, such as the Women’s March and the demonstrations at airports after the proposed travel ban. But the recent attacks on Mueller—including tweets by Trump as well as efforts by Republicans to investigate the FBI’s supposed anti-Trump bias—have added urgency to the “Nobody Is Above the Law” effort.

… dozens of protests are planned to address what organizers at groups including MoveOn, March For Truth and Indivisible call “a constitutional crisis for our country.”

Ever since the Cohen raids, the frivolous fleet of public relations orks has been eagerly spreading the word…

 

 

 

 

Thus, at this very moment, hordes of anti-Social inJustice Warriors, tweaking for their next crisis-induced dopamine fix, impatiently yearn for the psychological high that ideological validation brings.

Awaken! This is war.

Our opponents don’t play nice, and they don’t play by our rules. There is no fair play. Every move is plotted with delicate, sinister, unscrupulous care. We live in a dog eat dog world. The winner takes all.

The monsters lie in wait for their feast… just as a perched spider patiently anticipates an unsuspecting fly to become entrapped in her sticky, silk web.

President Trump must resist the Regressives’ carefully laid trap.

We must not feed the beasts.

The Nation’s Left has become Irredeemably Socialist, it’s time it came out of the Authoritarian closet.

Published

on

By

There was a time when the nation’s Socialist Left at least made the pretence of defending Liberty, but that time has passed.

Being true to oneself is always a good moral standard, even if one does not have moral standards. False pretence only works for a limited time period until its falsity becomes obvious to all. Such is the case of the nation’s Socialist Left.

Consider the following recent developments in the ‘progress’ of the nation’s Left:

In summation, it has become the party wanting to obsessively control people’s lives. It needs to come out of the authoritarian closet, becoming true to itself and everyone else.

Robert A. Heinlein had a very interesting point that illustrates the distinction between Left and Right:

“Political tags – such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth – are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.” – Robert A. Heinlein

One could say that the desire to control people is a demarcation line between the Socialist-Left and the Conservative-Right. While there are some exceptions, for the most part this tends to explain the difference in underlying philosophy between the two sides of the political spectrum. The items mentioned are very illustrative of this divide.

The Party of Gun Confiscation.

Despite it’s incessant lies on the subject, the nation’s Socialist Left has made it entirely obvious that it wants a monopoly on the use of force. While it revels in exploiting children to further this authoritarian goal, the result will be empowerment for themselves.

It is also indicative of the underlying collectivist mindset of the Left. To them, individuals are only useful as a collective body of people, whose value is dependent on this use.

The Party of censorship and the suppression of free-speech.

This is another area in which the Left plays it’s little word games over whether it’s actions to suppress speech violate the first amendment. This actually isn’t the case here, although it has made moves in this direction campaign finance reform. No, the question is whether the nation’s Left has attempted to suppress free-speech regardless of it’s Constitutional implications.

Granted, there are certain private entities can do whatever they want in running their concerns. The real issue is whether they are truly supporters of Liberty ( With their supposedly being ‘Liberals’… ahem ) or are they authoritarian at heart. Recent events should make it clear they are of the latter more than the former. Witness the nation’s Socialist Left attempts at “Deplatforming” those who which they disagree. Or the many examples of the government indoctrination centre’s suppression of opposition voices.

In their zeal to clamp down on the fundamental human right of self-preservation, the nation’s Left has also suppressed certain types of videos discussing Constitutionally protected entities . As well as trying to use the finance industry to hamstring the commerce in these items

The party of wealth redistribution and High Taxation.

Recent days have seen the nation’s Left come out fully for the imposition of higher taxes on the people. The Left’s obsession with a fundamental part of Marxist doctrine is at the level of it’s DNA. It’s tired, time-worn talking point “Tax breaks for the wealthy” is a staple of Leftist demagoguery. Even it’s most cherished version of “Progress”, the Obamacare incremental move towards national socialist health care was couched as wealth redistribution. But only after the law was passed.

Government suppression of opposition voices.

Then there is the case of the Internal Revenue Service abuse of the Tea Party groups during the Obama administration. In classic form, the nation’s Left used a powerful government agency to suppress these groups. Still further, it used time-tested methods to slow down the investigation of these abuses to dissipate the damage it itself when these abuses were revealed.

The nation’s Left needs to admit to it’s true Socialist authoritarian nature.

All of these examples are indicative of a movement that is becoming increasingly authoritarian. The nation’s Left is following in the footsteps of totalitarians of the past in wanting to carry out these measures to have strict control over society. Authoritarians of the past have also denied becoming so, as has the Left of modern times. Thus a good explanation of the Left’s desire to control free-speech as well as monopolize freedom of the press.

It’s said that the first step in solving an obsessive personality disorder is to admit to the problem on the road to recovery. Perhaps the nation’s Left should consider this advice before it takes this authoritarian inclination to far.

Righteousness, honesty as well as truth in advertising should see the nation’s Left ‘come clean’ on its base ideology. It should freely admit that it wants to confiscate guns, control free-speech, raise taxes and ‘punish its enemies’.  It may not win any more elections if the people were fully apprised of the truth. But at least it could hold it’s head high in knowing that it had been honest for once.
