Can we finally stop calling them Liberals

Recent events have shown that the nation’s Left only has contempt for Liberty, it is no longer Liberal by any stretch of the imagination.

Quite often that which is concealed is already well-known, and when the pretence is dropped, it signifies a new phase with horrific implications. It’s not the revelation of what’s behind the mask that is shocking but the act itself.

Until this point it should have been patently obvious that there are portions of the nation’s Left that have no interest in Liberty. This was just a ruse by some of them to deceive many an acolyte to their cause on the pretence of their being ‘Liberators’. Their use of the term ‘Democratic’ along with an ideology that is it’s antithesis is following along the same lines.

It’s always the glaring discontinuities or inconsistencies in logic that gives up the game in these matters. Those who disparage liberty cannot be at the same time considered to be Liberal, no matter what kind of linguistic legerdemain employed in the cover-up. Just as it’s not really “Progress” to go back to the ancient ideas of collectivism.

One cannot be a ‘Liberal’ while being an enemy of liberty.

If one cannot explain how that which is defined as ‘favouring individual liberty, free trade’ can suddenly be transformed into collectivism [the antithesis of individual Liberty], then there is something logically incorrect in the supposition. This can be easily illustrated with the question: “Was Stalin a Liberal?”. This was clearly not the case, but he was only a few ideological steps away from certain Leftists, those who still cast themselves as being ‘Liberal’. This logical discontinuity should make obvious that cannot be the case.

The Authoritarian Socialist-Left is dropping the mask.

Now that we’ve all made the first tenuous steps onto the slippery slope of censorship, Senator Chris Murphy (D-CN) is celebrating the event happily running about with a virtual can of WD-40, all in the name of ‘The survival of our democracy’. This from a man who has made his disdain for the common sense civil right of self-defense entirely obvious. Both are assaults on Liberty, no matter what surrogate terms are utilised in the process.

Then there is the story reported in National Review that the advert for Elizabeth Heng, Republican contender for the 16th Congressional District of California was blocked by Facebook because it contained references to a historic event. Apparently, the authoritarians at Facebook though that referring to the Cambodian Genocide was beyond the pale. Of course, we could also ask: “Was Pol Pot a Liberal?”

Then there is the story of a politician in Santa Barbara who had to walk a comment that was far too revealing of the mindset of the Left. In the discussions over a ban on plastic straws, Councilman Jason Dominguez stated that “Unfortunately, common sense is just not common,” he said. “We have to regulate every aspect of people’s lives.”

Let’s set aside the issue of whether or not the government can assert that level of control, and consider the autocratic mindset of someone who would even think of stating that out loud in a public forum. Later on the Councilman walked back those comments, but it should be obvious that Left’s actions belie it’s collective mindset.

It should be clearly evident that the Socialist-Left is coming out of the authoritarian closet.

Most embracing socialism have little use for the precepts of private property. They no longer view the individual as having any value with their demands for gun confiscation. Lastly, recent events have shown that they have little use for free-speech. Taken together, it should be readily apparent that the Left no longer has a use for Liberty. For them, this was just a ruse to attain power just as they bolted on the deceptive label of ‘Democratic’ onto their collectivist ideology.

The reason for the emergence the Left’s authoritarian tendencies are hard to discern, perhaps it is frustration at being removed from the control over everyone’s life they consider to be their birthright. Never the less, these events should provide a preview of what they will do if they ever attain the power they crave.

So where do we go from here?

Oftentimes Leftists will use a two-step process in attacking Freedom, starting out will the initial demand meant to ‘solve’ the problem at hand. Then implementing part two in calling it ‘a good first step’ followed by resetting the process. This is the case with Senator Chris Murphy (D-CN).

So who will be next to lose their right’s in the Left’s culture war on Liberty? Who will be silenced based on their indefinable standard of ‘Hate speech’? Does anyone think that this will the last we hear about this issue?

Dean Cain’s label of San Francisco’s new incarceration language is spot on

Dean Cains label of San Franciscos new incarceration language is spot on

Actor Dean Cain is one of the few outspoken conservatives in Hollywood. The star of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman has taken plenty of heat for voicing support for President Trump and for calling out his progressive peers as they rant unhinged.

One of his latest critiques of leftism was in response to San Francisco’s plan to change official words that pertain to convicted felons and juvenile delinquents. In pure Bay Area-style, the city is planning on sanitizing certain phrases so as to not “further victimize” criminals.

Once we catch our breath after laughing at the way these progressives see criminals, reality sets in about how asinine – and potentially dangerous – it is to cater to the criminal aspects of society at the expense of law abiding citizens.

Here are some of the details of the proposal:

San Francisco to do away with terms like ‘convict’, will instead call them ‘formerly incarcerated person’

They recently passed a resolution containing “person first” language guidelines that all agencies and departments are urged to used.

For example, an offender will now be called a “formerly incarcerated person”, “justice-involved person”, or “returning resident.”

A juvenile delinquent will go by “young person with justice system involvement” or a “young person impacted by the juvenile justice system.”

How did San Francisco leaders find time to address this non-issue when homelessness has reached crisis-levels and their city is literally covered in human feces? Have voters become so engulfed in tribal allegiance that they can’t see the absurdity in front of their faces?

Cain’s reaction was short and perfect.

In George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, the nation of Oceania had adopted the official language of Newspeak, “a controlled language of restricted grammar and limited vocabulary, meant to limit the freedom of thought.” It’s both a partial precursor to and a necessity of socialism because freedom of thought allows deviations from authoritarian control. Whether the leaders of San Francisco know it or not, they’re building a version of Oceania right now.

As long as Americans stand by and elect leaders who are more interested in not offending criminals than solving the massive problems faced by law abiding American citizens, this lunacy will continue. San Francisco is dying.

Omar, Tlaib silent after Nadler rebuke

Omar Tlaib silenced after Nadler rebuke

Representative Jerry Nadler is one of the bad guys. He’s leading the charge to keep the House of Representatives focused on one thing: Taking down President Trump. But even bad guys do good things sometimes. His singular moment of clarity came yesterday when he rebuked Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar of “The Squad” fame for sharing an anti-Semitic cartoon on Twitter.

To keep things in perspective, this isn’t Nadler doing the right thing for the right reasons. His interest is in making sure focus remains on the President and he views his freshmen cohorts as distractions. And even in rebuking them, he did so by first insulting the President with a lie.

The President’s comments about American Jews being disloyal to Israel if they vote Democrat is not an anti-Semitic trope. In fact, it’s not a trope at all, but since it’s a word that’s often associated with anti-Semitism, Nadler felt the need to invoke it.

As for the cartoon Nadler referred to, it came from a nefarious source:

But the real news here isn’t that Nadler went after his own teammates. It’s that the didn’t respond. It’s obvious they’re aware of the rebuke, but both have focused on playing nice on Twitter and have not addressed Nadler at all, at least not in public. This is a departure from their modus operandi as they’re known for striking back at criticism regardless of the source. Invariably, they play the race card and characterize anyone who criticizes them as bigots attacking “women of color.”

Nadler is an older straight white male, which is to say he’s a prime target for the wrath of “The Squad.” Are they suddenly playing nice or are they biding their time? Perhaps they don’t want to draw attention to the rebuke. Whatever their reasoning for not hitting Nadler back, their silence is conspicuous.

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib were wrong to share the anti-Semitic trope and Nadler was right to rebuke them. But don’t cheer Nadler’s action too hard. His only concerns are how their bigotry reflects on his party and keeping attention on President Trump.

Elizabeth Pipko: Democrats ‘supported one anti-Semitic comment after another’

Elizabeth Pipko Democrats supported one anti-Semitic comment after another

Racism is real in America and there’s a push to attach it to President Trump. Anti-Semitism is among the hot topics being discussed by legacy media, especially after the President went after Jews living in America who vote Democrat.

Despite the left’s cries to make the GOP, President Trump, and all of his supporters seem like racists, the truth is starting to come out. Much of this is at the hands of “The Squad,” who ironically attempt to use the race card at every turn. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley have gone so far as to call others racist while demonstrating their own bigotry in the same sentences.

Jewish activist Elizabeth Pipko was part of a panel of Fox Nation discussing the recent press by Democrats to reverse the anti-Semitism narrative back onto President Trump. As their party seems to be pulling further and further away from supporting Israel while attaching to the much larger worldwide Muslim population, it’s becoming increasingly clear they are at a crossroads. Today, most Jews are Democrats, but as the party embraces anti-Semitism as their new normal, how long can that support continue?

As Pipko pointed out, politicians must either condemn or support a stance. Silence is viewed as acceptance, and as Democratic lawmakers are conspicuously silent on “The Squad’s” anti-Semitism, we must take this as their measure of supporting it.
