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.

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as ‘sweetheart,’ prompting zero outrage

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as sweetheart prompting zero outrage

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan referred to Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as “Sweetheart” as he addressed her during a speaking engagement on Sunday. He apparently caught his faux pas and immediately justified the remark, but at that point the moniker which many consider to be sexist or misogynistic had already been noted.

Nevertheless, it didn’t cause the stir one might expect. As a far-left progressive, Omar is known for being a feminist icon on Capitol Hill even though she hasn’t been in office for a full two months yet. As our EIC noted, the lack of a rebuke was because of the source, not because she now feels it’s okay to refer to her as “sweetheart.”

The statement came as Farrakhan was telling Omar she shouldn’t be sorry for the statements she made last week about Israel, AIPAC, and Jewish influence in Washington DC, particularly over Republicans.

In a world where consistency was still considered a virtue, followers of Omar would be wondering why she’s not expressing outrage over the belittling reference from a powerful man. But the world isn’t consistent and Farrakhan always gets a pass.

Man fined £1,000 for outdated sense of humor

Man fined £1000 for outdated sense of humor

Jonathon Van Maren, a contributor for LifeSiteNews, recently stumbled across an article in the UK’s Edinburgh News about a construction worker who was arrested for “pointing and laughing” at a biological male who was dressed as a female (transgender woman).

[Author’s Note: It is impolite and unkind to point and laugh at others. This article is not an endorsement of such behavior.]

As Van Maren explained, a construction worker named Graham Spiers was walking with a group of friends. The group pointed and laughed while passing a transgender individual who, suspecting that his appearance had become the subject of ridicule, telephoned the police.

Spiers was arrested five day later.

Sherriff Robert Fife scolded Mr. Spiers’s sense of humor and actions:

Transgender insanity: Police now jailing people for laughing at men in women’s clothes

https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/transgender-insanity-police-now-jailing-people-for-laughing-at-men-in-womenSheriff Robert Fife also piled on, informing Spiers that, “Your offensive comments were not funny at the time and are not funny now. Your children should grow up understanding gender differences and would be ashamed at your behavior that comes from a different era has no place in today’s society.” Fife then told Spiers that in addition to the cash he had to pay to the biological man for laughing at him, he also had to pay an additional fine of another five hundred pounds.

Graham Spiers was ordered to pay a total of £1,000 for his actions “from a different era,” 500 of which was paid to the complainant.

Of the actions by police and the court in this instance, Van Maren opined:

It is disgusting enough that law enforcement would arrest and charge someone for this triviality. That alone indicates that freedom in Scotland is truly dead. But the fact that law enforcement then lectured Spiers on being a throwback from a different age (that different era being about a decade ago, for the record) and telling him his children should be ashamed of him? And that Spiers was expected to cower and listen to this tongue-lashing from his betters so he could get re-educated and realize that men could now become women and that laughing at their attempts was forbidden by law? That should absolutely repulse any liberty-loving person and terrify everyone who values freedom.

My Take

Pointing and laughing at others is unquestionably unkind. I am repulsed at the thought of such outward meanness. However, that this behavior so would be considered illegal and result in one’s arrest is punitive at best, and is undoubtedly a waste a valuable time and resources. Furthermore, the punishment in this case is brazenly excessive.

This is yet another instance of big government run amok. The Founders knew the dangers of big government. It would be prudent of us to heed the Founders’ advice, lest we find ourselves in the position of Mr. Spiers: subjugated beneath the arbitrary boot of “benevolent” governmental authority.

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

There’s a trend that’s been quietly, consistently rearing its ugly head against the President of the United States and his supporters since before the 2016 election. We’ve seen it among unhinged journalists, virtue-signaling celebrities, and Democratic politicians. We’ve seen it manifest in the ugliest form of hatred – the common hate-hoax – and it’s doing more to divide America than the source of the perpetrators’ anger.

They hate President Trump. They hate the people who got him elected. The hate the idea of making America great again because as much of the MAGA agenda comes to pass, they’re learning they’ve been wrong the whole time. I know first hand. I’ve been proven wrong myself.

No, I’m not a hate-hoaxer, but I’ve been against the President to varying degrees for over three years now. Before he officially won the GOP nomination in 2016, I opposed him because I felt he would do too much damage while delivering only a moderate amount of good policies. He wasn’t as bad as John Kasich or Jeb Bush, but we had Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Rand Paul as better candidates. Nevertheless, he won the nomination, prompting me to spend the final leg of the 2016 election without a horse in the race. I didn’t like the idea of Trump being President, but under no circumstances did I want Hillary Clinton to be President, either.

100% crowdfunded news. Please help.

After he won, I became a cautious but hopeful watcher. While we worked on alternatives to bring limited-government federalism to the forefront of local, state, and national politics, I took a case-by-case stance on the President himself. When he did well, I praised him. When he did poorly, I criticized him. This stance has remained until this day, though there have been times when I was more supportive or more critical, depending on the policy discussion of the day. Tax and bureaucratic cuts – good. Tariffs and bump stock bans – bad. The recent cave on the border omnibus – very bad. Most foreign policy moves (leaving Iran deal, leaving Paris accords, moving embassy to Jerusalem) – very good.

Unfortunately, it seems many on the left have been unwilling to recognize even the remotest possibility anything the President is doing is good. What’s worse is that some have been so aggressive in their desire to prove their point that they’ve pretended to be victims for the sake of getting their “victims’ perks” of love and affection from their peers while painting anyone wearing a MAGA hat as bigoted and hateful.

Thus, the anti-MAGA hate hoax was born and it’s been so prominent over the last two-and-a-half years, one must wonder how mainstream media and Democrats became so gullible that they fall for it every single time.

Andy Ngo at Quillette put together a comprehensive list of hate hoaxes that leftists have perpetrated to paint the President and his supporters as racists. It’s absolutely stunning when you see the magnitude of the hatred – THEIR hatred – that makes them willing to tell bald-faced lies just to prove the movement they oppose is as bad as they think it is.

I’ve had ideological disagreements with nearly every presidential candidate (let alone every President) since I became an adult. There’s nothing wrong with disagreement as long as one is willing to not be blinded in one direction or the other. There are plenty who blindly follow President Trump to approximately the same degree that supporters blindly followed President Obama. The herd mentality seems to have become the way of the political world in America for our last two presidents. But that blind devotion is simply an annoyance. The blind hatred that drives people to commit these hoaxes is far more dangerous.

It’s likely when the details are fully revealed regarding Jussie Smollett’s hate-hoax, it was driven more by a narcissistic desire to advance his career rather than pure hatred for the MAGA crowd or the President, but obviously the latter hatred played a role in his decision-making process. This type of action is never acceptable. We have enough outrage in America. There’s no need to manufacture even more for false reasons.

It’s time for the unhinged left to stop assuming every MAGA supporter is racist and start asking how the actions of those on their side of the political aisle drove massive amounts of people to support President Trump. Perhaps then, they’ll realize the hatred is coming mostly from them.
