Leftists seem to think that with a brand new label, people will readily accept the carnage and repression that is necessary in creating their wonderful collectivist Utopia.
Brute force is the only way that socialism can function, it can hardly take “From each according to their abilities” without it. But that’s a hard sell when compared to the voluntary exchange of Economic Liberty. In general, people would rather live in freedom than under the boot heel of oppression, so the Left has to lie to convince people to enslave themselves under socialism. It’s a little shell game Leftists have played for centuries with different labels or sloganeering to sell their system of control “to regulate every aspect of people’s lives.”
We are now witness to the Left trying to craft new versions of labeling for their ancient ideas, emphasising the goodies without mentioning the mass murder that has to go along with it. It should go without saying that the sales pitch will be long on free-stuff everyone is supposed to vote for themselves and short on talk of the SEBIN hauling people off to La Tumba when the promises run short. Most rational people wouldn’t choose to live under the tyranny of authoritarian socialism aside from the Leftists who get to run the show.
At present, bastions of the principles of Liberty are feverishly writing advice columns on how to accomplish the task. With emphasis on “Free Healthcare”,” Free college”, “Free housing”, “Free food” instead of the fact that everyone loses their Liberty under socialistic slavery – except for the Leftists who are in control.
The claim is that things have somehow changed, for this will be socialism with ‘No gulags’, just all kinds of free stuff paid for with other people’s money. The days of concentration camps, firing squads and Comités de Defensa de la Revolución (CDR) are gone*. [*Except for China, Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela…] From the Huffington Post – Relax, Boomers: Socialism Is Good Now.
The Liberty brain trust over on MSNBC discussed this issue while the host mocked everyone who fears the loss of freedom under socialistic slavery as mentioned on the Daily Wire: “But lots of people don’t get into the argument, they just go, ‘Oh my gosh, socialist, I can’t have that. It’s gonna take all my money,'” Ruhle arrogantly said while mocking American’s fears of socialism.

But we on the Pro-Liberty Right would like to help out our comrades of the National Socialist-Left, They want a new name for their vile ideology of organised evil [Ops.. did we say that out loud..]. So we’re willing to help them out, given the effort will be difficult given the already existing 40 plus synonyms for their 500-year-old ideas:
Anarcho-syndicalism, Anarcho-Communism, Authoritarianism, Bolshevism, Castroism, Chávezism, Communism, collectivism, co-operative society, collective ownership, communalism, Economic Justice, Evolutionary Socialism, Fabianism, Fascism, Fourierism, Guild socialism, Leftism, Leninism, Libertarian-Socialist, Maoism, Marxism, Marxism–Leninism, National Socialism, Neofascism, Ochlocracy, Owenism, Progressivism, Project X, Reformism, Revolutionary Socialism, Rule of the proletariat, Social democracy, Social justice, Sovietism, Stalinism, Statism, State capitalism, State ownership, Syndicalism, Totalitarianism, Trotskyism, Utopian Socialism.
Aside from recycling a few words from the past, the Left is running short on words and slogans to sell Socialistic Slavery. So, in the spirit of generosity, we have a few suggestions for what the Left can do with it’s base ideology.
Notes on Leftist Labels
Leftists do have a penchant for playing games with definitions for common words, with the myriad labels for their base ideology being no exception. The dichotomy has always been between individualism and collectivism, in the case of the main label of their base ideology, the Left’s rationale is that socialism came from being ‘social’ + ism or Socialistic [as opposed to being individualist]. So it’s not beyond the bounds of reason to see them try to pull off the same linguistic legerdemain with other words that mean being nice or friendly.
Please take note of what seems to be the current take of the Left in trying to sell Socialistic Slavery to a new generation. This is the use of __________ ism – not mentioning the name of the ideology, but pushing all of it’s wonders, all paid for by money taken at gunpoint from other people.
New name suggestions.
Here are our suggestions along the lines of Leftist labeling lies, beginning with the granddaddy of them all:
Social + ism Socialism [The mouldy oldie that started it all]
Amiable + ism Amiablism
Free + ism Freeism
Friendly + ism Friendlyism
Liberation + ism Liberationism [If that sounds a lot like Liberalism, you’re catching on to the scam]
Society + ism Societism
Collective generosity (aka compulsory taxation) The collective being generous with your money – Taken at gun point
Well, maybe those made up words won’t help since they are along the lines of made up words of the past that conveyed the same ideas that were new 5 centuries ago. So, maybe they can just bolt on a happy sounding adjective or slogan onto the existing words to help sell it with a reassuring lie that it won’t end as it always does.
Socialism – remember it’s still Democratic even if only the Politburo votes.
New and improved Socialism – now 50% gulag free.
Not your father’s Socialism – trust us, we don’t plan on having secret police or concentration camps….. unless we absolutely have to.
Voting for dollars!
Smiley face Socialism – Firing squad free, we *guarantee!
*For 30 days or 300 dissident arrests, whichever comes first. Your oppression my vary, see Marxism.org for complete details.
Progressivism – Running your life so you don’t have to.
So there you have it, our suggestions to the Left in how they can repackage their base ideology. Or perhaps the people have figured out the game. Just as changing the name doesn’t turn certain substances into something wonderful, so too is the case with socialism. There has to be a good reason that some joined the #WalkAway movement. Somehow a new term of total control over one’s life with mass murder and oppression in the background no longer appeals to anyone. Let us hope that is the case.
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.
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.
More 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.”
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
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 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.
