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

Published

on

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.

Differential equations teaches us that one can use the initial conditions of the present to extrapolate events in the near term balanced with the knowledge of the past. The interaction of technological advances and the march of history is fascinating. History can inform those willing to listen as to what will happen in the future because the laws of human natural are as immutable as the elegant equations of Newtonian physics.

Ken Ham on how science confirms the Bible

Ken Ham on how science confirms the Bible

One of my biggest pet peeves is the attempt by atheists to use “science” to disprove the Bible. It’s unfortunate on many levels, not the least of which being Pascal’s Wager, but the strangest part is how much of science must be ignored in order to make the claim a Biblical worldview runs counter to modern science.

Some may object to this topic being part of mostly political news site, but it’s been more widely covered in recent years by liberal sites attempting to paint the Biblical worldview in a negative light, so it’s good to give equal time to the counterarguments.

There are better videos than Ken Ham’s discussion on the topic, but few are more easily understood. It’s well worth the hour.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician. And she’s a Democrat.

Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician And shes a Democrat

Racism is owned by the Republican Party. That’s the narrative the press and their handlers, the Democratic Party, wants America to believe. Someone forgot to get that memo to Michigan state representative Bettie Cook Scott.

Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott on Asian opponent: ‘Don’t vote for the ching-chong!’

https://www.metrotimes.com/news-hits/archives/2018/08/16/detroit-rep-bettie-cook-scott-on-asian-opponent-dont-vote-for-the-ching-chongMore than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

My Take

There are two important takeaways here. First is the hypocrisy surrounding Scott, a (formerly) rising star in the Michigan Democratic Party. If the comments she made were spoken by anyone other than a Democrat, the calls wouldn’t be for an apology. The press and social groups would be calling for her to step down and jump into a hole somewhere.

The second point is that in the real world, the one not seen through the lens of liberals and the media, racism exists everywhere. It is not owned by Republicans, conservatives, old people, white people, or any other classification. One can even make a valid argument that it’s no more prominent in the Republican Party than it is in the Democratic Party that supports groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Racism must be eliminated from society. That will never happen as long as so many people naively believe it only exists in the minds of certain people on the political right. It exists everywhere. Accept that and we can work to make it stop.

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty – Part II

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty Part II

Leftists incessantly issue lists of demands for the restriction of Liberty, It’s time to reverse the trend towards freedom.

This is our second part of our series of what we on the Pro-Liberty Right want for the preservation of Liberty. Part I is here.

6. The Left needs to stop trying to control private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. [aka ‘enhanced’ or ‘Universal’]

If there is one constant in the Liberty grabber universe, it’s that half of them are incessantly calling for gun confiscation while the rest deny they are calling for gun confiscation. They also love to parrot the line that it would be impossible to round-up everyone’s guns as a way of deflecting the issue. Except that those on the Pro-liberty side thought the same thing in the UK and Australia. Their Liberty grabber nightmare began with gun registration, under the solemn promise that it wouldn’t lead to gun confiscation. [Sound familiar?] Then of course at the next occasion of a serious crisis, this registration data was used for gun confiscation.

The fact is gun confiscation takes several precursor steps, the most critical being the assertion of government control over private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. Curiously enough, the Liberty grabbers tend to want language inserted into these laws mandating the reportage of lost or stolen firearms. Those types of rules are of primary importance only if the point of these measures is to turn them into a registration scheme.

7. The Liberty Grabber Left needs to stop pushing for even more controls on freedom.

It is also axiomatic that Leftists will exploit any opportunity to start ever-expansive controls over Liberty. The Left is a virtual fountainhead of new and more creative ways of clamping down on freedom. Having run out of new and improved ways of making it difficult, embarrassing and expensive to buy a firearm [While also lying about it at the same time] the Left has moved on to imposing controls over the purchase of ammunition. Then of course they also are making demands on how these are stored.

8. Stop attacking those who only wish to defend themselves.

There is nothing more loathsome than Leftists who excel at hurling insults at the country’s estimated 150 Million innocent gun owners. We’ve been labelled with almost everything from being Terrorists to baby killers for wanting nothing more than to be able to defend our families and ourselves.

Those who incessantly work overtime to demonize the innocent should keep one word in mind: Deterrence. The widespread ownership of weapons in most areas deters criminals since they don’t know who can fight back. This also explains why places with tight controls on Liberty tend to have higher crime rates. Curiously enough, for people who love the term ‘Commonsense’ they certainly don’t seem to well versed in it.

9. The Left needs to become educated about that which they want to control.

Granted, it might be too much to expect the Liberty Grabbers from knowing the difference between a direct impingement and gas piston actuation, but they should at least know the difference between a semi-auto and select fire. Nothing screams uninformed more than someone who confuses a clip with a magazine or some who uses them interchangeably in a claim that one can fire off 30 rounds in half a second.

Lack of knowedge is usually a negative in most cases, but in the realm of Liberty Control, the Leftists wear it as a badge of honour.

10. The Left needs to stop lying about guns.

We made these two separate items to prove a point. While some gaffes of the Liberty grabber elite are relatively harmless, there are those that are a danger to Liberty. It should go without saying that we live in an age in which the knowledge of the world is literally at one’s fingertips. There is no rational excuse for a lack of knowledge on the most rudimentary aspects of certain subjects. By the same token, there is no excuse for the propagation of deliberate false impressions and Lies particularly on the subject of self-defense.

One of the most infamous examples stems from the creation the phrase “Assault Weapon”:

The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons—anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun—can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.

The Takeaway.

The nation’s Left has gone on for years demanding compromises on the part of the Pro-Liberty Right. It is time that they step up to the plate and show they can be ‘bi-partisan’ for once. These steps aren’t really that extraordinary, in fact they merely bolster Liberty. Some Leftists still purport to be Liberal, supporting these items would go a long way in showing that is truly the case.
