Liberty in the crosshairs: The Leftist cold war on words

Liberty in the crosshairs The Leftist cold war on words

Developing a counteroffensive in response to the Left’s guerrilla warfare.

The cause of Liberty is in serious trouble, It’s no secret that the nation’s Socialist-Left cannot abide it. As Walter Williams stated in an interview on CRTV, tyrants will often use the vestiges of Liberty and Liberalism to get their foot in the door. After which they throw off these pretensions in their quest for power. It also shouldn’t be the least hyperbolic to observe that each day the situation becomes worse and worse, with the observation by many that we are already engaged in a cold civil war. We shortened the term since the word ‘civil’ seems out-of-place in this context. This war is being fought with words instead of rounds of ammunition. Thoughts instead of armoured columns.

Leftist guerrilla warfare is trying to destroy western culture

In general terms, guerrilla warfare initially consists of small-unit hit and run attacks against soft targets in what used to be called the rear echelon. With this type of warfare, there is no rear echelon, no safe areas. The point of these attacks is to wear the enemy down, while keeping one’s forces safe from retaliatory strikes. Attacks from everywhere and anywhere keep the enemy off-balance, unable to find respite from the constantly shifting battlefield.

In military parlance gleaned from years of bitter experience, the best response to an attack of this nature is a direct counter attack. The enemy will often want a certain response that helps their cause immensely, this is the course of action to avoid.

Once upon a time, the Left pretended to be liberal

There was a time when Leftist’s pretensions as being ‘Liberal’ had a thin veneer of credibility. They at least tried to keep up the façade, standing up for the cause here and there. Their comrades in the national socialist media likewise maintained their cover story as being ‘objective’ journalists. Their news stories and opinion pieces had a modicum of balance.

This is no longer the case. Every day the national socialist-Left tries to conjure up new ways of being ‘offended’ at words that have been around for centuries. Media personalities of the Left’s media organs have dropped most, if not all pretense at being objective in favour of an agenda of collectivist propaganda.

We could cite some prime examples of these instances of the Left being offended or the media off the rails of objectivity, but that will change in the next 5 minutes.

Most people have had enough of the Left’s cold war on our culture

The good news is that many have become sick of this undeclared cold war on words. A recent poll had 80% of the people fed up with political correctness. They are sick of the constant chaos and uncertainty on what is considered to be ‘PC’ at the moment. Every time they turn around, some new tradition or cultural icon will be under attack from the enemies of Liberty on the Left.

Many simply chose to ignore the Left, hoping they will go away. Others point out the absurdity of the contradictory tantrums of the Left without taking action. Both do nothing to stop the insanity. As it the case with actual warfare, the best defense is a good offense, although not literally in this case

The power of the word NO

Carrying over the analogy to our situation, the best course of action is a direct response, beginning with the elemental tactic of telling them NO to any of their insane demands. In much the same way as disciplining a toddler or a pet, a firm NO is sometimes the best answer to the Left’s antics. Giving ground only serves to encourage additional requirements. In many situations the best way to handle the Socialist Justice Warriors is to refuse their demands, telling them to go away.

A lexicon for the defense of Liberty

In other cases, we all need to come up with responses to the Left’s ‘NPC’ style assaults. They tend to use the same phrases and insults, ad nauseam, so developing a set of responses will be easy. These will be the military equivalent of attacking the source of an ambush directly with greater or overwhelming firepower. In most cases, there will be the usual Leftist assault phrase, what it truly means and the counteroffensive response. Here is one example to get the ball rolling:

Leftese word or phrase: Socialism

What it truly means: Buying votes with other people’s money.

The Pro-Liberty term for Socialism: Societal Slavery

The Takeaway.

Going along to get along is no longer a practical strategy, it only encourages further assaults. Barring the use of the good old-fashioned adult response of NO to the Left. It is time we developed a set of response words and phrases to Leftist absurdities. Our sanity and the defense of Liberty demands it.

    The joke is on though. I just learned that the Lady Liberty has nothing to do with liberty or even being a lady. It turns out that the frenchie that designed it wen to Egypt for inspiration and modeled it off of the eunuch priests of Attis. If you search for a pic of Attis, you will see “Lady” Liberty looks just like him, even with the seven spikes on the head.

A guide to classical liberalism

A guide to classical liberalism

The modern interpretation of the ideology known as “liberalism” is usually associated with the progressive left. Despite the roots of true liberalism – individualism, Natural Rights, and liberty itself – the modern understanding of liberalism has been skewed to make people think more of illiberal politicians like Bernie Sanders instead of Constitutional originalists like Antonin Scalia as liberals.

This 27-minute video does a fine job of breaking down the historical ideas that brought about classical liberalism and the men who brought them to light. It also accurately points out that equality of opportunity for individuals is necessary for a modern society, thus it was this mentality that brought about the end of slavery and the promotion of women’s rights.

From John Locke to James Madison, from the thinkers of Great Britain to the founding fathers of the United States, this video from The Academic Agent brings us through the history of classical liberalism.

For a brief introduction we posted a shorter video earlier:

What classical liberalism is, briefly

http://noqreport.com/2018/12/12/classical-liberalism-briefly/The progressive left and the Democratic Party have undergone many transformations over the last century. They’ve masterfully spun American understanding of language and labels to the point that history has been in a constant state of being rewritten to conform to their machinations. One of the most perverse examples of this is how they now claim the mantle of “liberalism.”

Sadly, those who embrace Natural Rights, limited government, and individualism have been forced to amend our label as liberals to become “classical liberals” for the sake of escaping confusion. Most Americans today would assume if we call ourselves “liberals” that we must be big fans of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Fine-tuning and incredible calibration points to creation over random chance

Fine-tuning and incredible calibration points to creation over random chance

Homicide investigator J. Warner Wallace is familiar with looking for tampering. His job makes him look for things that don’t fit. At his core, he is forced to ask questions about the various situations he investigates in order to see where the evidence points.

When he’s not catching bad guys, he’s a Christian apologist. In this role, he utilizes the same skills he’s honed over the decades as an investigator to demonstrate why it makes much more sense to believe in creation than a randomly generated universe.

The author of Cold-Case Christianity started off as a skeptical atheist, but as he investigated deeper, he soon realized it was impossible for the secular worldview to be correct as it pertained to the origins of the universe and life on the planet.

Leftists keep crying wolf: How ‘racist’ has lost all meaning

Leftists keep crying wolf

The Left needs to start coming up with real arguments instead of relying on the crutch of name-calling.

Nick Kangadis , @TruthOfChicago of MRCTV makes the point that Leftist name calling has destroyed the emotional impact of certain words, leaving them without any practical debating points. Not to mention that a fair amount of time they are merely projecting their maladies on their opposition.

Does the action of being called a “racist” mean anything anymore? You’d think for being people that constantly talk about how tolerant and inclusive they are, the Left sure are hellbent on removing any weight actual racism carries, among other labels they like to arbitrarily place on people. The funny part of the whole thing is that the people who always cry racism seem to be the biggest racists.

Rules for the rational: Never substitute name-calling for a real argument

It’s one thing to frame the debate with a label or proper term, it’s quite another to simply use pejoratives without basis in fact.

We use the terms Leftist or Socialist-Left because those are the proper terms for those people. Conversely, we eschew the terms Liberal or Progressive because they are false descriptors of the Left. Some have tried to argue that the two ‘L’ words of the same length are interchangeable when that is not the case. Leftist are of collectivist bent, while Liberals are individualists.

Similarly, the vaguely defined term ‘Progressive’ runs counter to the post-modernism of the Left. The term national merely relates to or is characteristic of a nation. By the same token, the moniker ‘Liberty grabbers’ for Leftists describes their true nature in that they are no longer advocates of Liberty – despite their ongoing exploitation of the term‘Liberal’.

This is not the case with the Left, they have the unfortunate tendency to use pejoratives such as ‘Racist’, ‘Sexist’, ‘Fascist’, to excess instead of utilising real arguments. Presumably, one is supposed to be figuratively set back on their heels defending against these types of baseless allegations. The danger for the Left is these words have become a poor substitute for rational debating points, not that they ever had much of those in the first place. After all, their best argument in favour of collectivism is that it’s either never been tried before or it’s being tried everywhere.

The takeaway

A rational argument is far better than those worn out pejoratives that are usually based on information they don’t have. In most cases, one cannot know if they fit into those pejorative categories. But that never stopped the Left from using them anyway. The Left’s tactic of projecting the words ‘racist’, ’sexist’ ,’fascist’ has become both sad and amusing. Their desperation in using the follow-up tactic of circular logic in applying those words is also becoming obvious to everyone.

As those words lose their emotional impact from excessive overuse, it will become clearer to all that the Left has no real arguments in favour of it’s socialist national agenda. But most likely it’s racist, sexist or fascist to notice that.
