The many varied reasons why you shouldn’t vote for the Democratic collective.
All through the Kavanaugh confirmation ordeal, the Left incessantly repeated the mantra that he wasn’t qualified based on their rapidly moving goalposts. The rationale being a bizarre but unvoiced legal standard that he was ‘collectively’ unqualified because other women had been assaulted. With this collectivist viewpoint being completely at odds with Conservative and Liberal ideals of individual freedom and rights.
Then the New York Times published a piece from a professor of philosophy at Emory University that asserts this very idea out in the open – the idea that people can be ‘collectively complicit’ in societal issues
By now, many of you are probably saying, this doesn’t apply to me — I’m innocent.
It’s true that many of us, including me, have not committed vile acts of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse the likes of which Harvey Weinstein has been accused of.
Yet I argue that we are collectively complicit with a sexist mind-set and a poisonous masculinity rooted in the same toxic male culture from which these men emerged.
That kind of emotional ‘Logic’ is abhorrent to those who are truly Liberal in that it rejects individual Liberty and individual responsibility, in favour of it’s ‘collectivised’ versions. But since the Democrats insist upon judging others with a broad brush, we should evaluate them on the same basis.
Applying collective judgement to the Democrats.
Consider how the Left would fair if they were all judged as a collective. Would they deserve our support or should they be shunned from polite society? It’s at this point the collectivists will show their duplicity in wanting to be judged as individuals, pointing fingers at others in their party as did Claire McCaskill. They act as a group, so they will be judged as a group.
Part I will examine the Left’s innate ability to lie and prevaricate beginning with their use of false labels. Part II will examine the Left’s temperament and predilection for violence and terror. Both will make the case for their being unfit to rule, and why they do not deserve any electoral support.
False labels: Leftist use of the term Liberal to imply that which they are not – advocates of Liberty.
Leftists love to exploit that term defined in the precepts of individual Liberty and freedom. It graphically shows their dishonesty in supposedly being liberators while tirelessly working against the cause of Liberty. This is exemplified by their use of the word Liberator as the name for several of their publications. With their astounding use of the term the collective to describe their editorial staff of one of them. In additon, they also use phrase ‘Wars of Liberation’ to describe their imposition of tyranny.
The Left’s collectivist basis is completely at odds to this word, but that doesn’t stop them from falsely using whenever it is advantageous for them. Their incessant attacks against most of the bill of rights while pretending to be ‘Liberal’ should make them unfit in and of itself.
Their term progressivism contradicted by their advocacy of post-modernism.
Postmodernism is the essence of a fair amount of ‘progressive’ thought. As the Encyclopaedia Britannica details this philosophy:
Indeed, many of the doctrines characteristically associated with postmodernism can fairly be described as the straightforward denial of general philosophical viewpoints that were taken for granted during the 18th-century Enlightenment.
In other words, a rejection of the progress of the modern world that was born of the age of enlightenment. This of course includes rejection of the scientific method and the overwhelming benefits of technology, all from the ‘Party of science™’.
It should also be noted that most ‘progressive’ ideas reach back at least several centuries, if not to ancient times. Going backwards is supposedly ‘Progress’ to Democrats. As Andrew Klavan said in his latest video: Leftese Dictionary: K is for Ku Klux Klan ‘Leftese describes a world that is exactly the opposite of reality’.
The fascist tactics of the ‘Anti-fascists’
This is only a small segment of the Leftist collective, but since they insist on judging everyone else as aggregated entities, the same should be applied to them. This is also one of the Democrat’s most egregious false labels since these tiny mobs act fascistically despite their self-labeling. Part and parcel of this is that the Left’s media arm dutifully parrots the ‘Anti-fascist’ meme to the point of dishonourably comparing them to W.W.II veterans who fought against fascism and socialism in actuality.
Democrats rejecting democracy.
Failing to carry out their agenda via legislation, the Left tends to use the courts and specifically the Supreme Court as a 9 person ‘super-legislature’ to force their agenda on the nation. This was why they became so agitated over the Kavanaugh confirmation, since it closed off one of the avenues to implement their policies. This use of the courts instead of the will of the people is also a rejection of the very meaning of their label as ‘Democrats’.
They’ve also bolted this term onto the label for their base ideology, but the blood soaked history of socialism shows that it’s never been ‘democratic’. There is just something about gulags and firing squads that seems to be at odds with the word.
The one case where the Left is honest in self-labeling: socialist.
One might almost have to give them kudos for finally coming out of the authoritarian closet, but even that calls into question their veracity – at least in the past. For years, most mainstream Democrats denied being socialists, then as of late they’ve dropped the mask. Curiously enough, their raft of policy points didn’t change. It was as though they were pushing their socialist national agenda all along, but didn’t have the integrity to admit the truth of the matter.
This also highlights the Democratic duplicity in their media arm switching the colours that signify the two sides in the Left-Right political spectrum. The better part of the last century saw the socialist-Left being designated by the colour Red, with it’s adherents typically called ‘Reds’. Just as in other cases, the socialist-Left swapped the colours to confuse the issue. These are but a few examples of Leftist false labels that renders them unworthy of leadership.
Democratic Lies in other realms.
Trying to properly identify all the lies of the Left is a daunting task in and of itself, making this essay far too cumbersome in scope. These range from outright lies in specific parts of the Left’s socialist national agenda to subtle word play in how they frame the issues. We will try to touch only on the highlights of the most egregious examples. Please don’t become offended if we give short shrift to these lies since that we all have our favourites.
Tax cuts give money to the wealthy.
This linguistic word play comes in many forms, but they are all predicated on the collectivist viewpoint on property ownership. This is the only way one can logically assert that letting someone keep what they already own is somehow ‘giving’ them something. Leftist-Collectivist dogma is that all property is somehow the purview of the government. This is why they object to the phrase made famous by Margaret Thatcher that ‘There is no such thing as public money; there is only taxpayers money’. Coincidentally enough, this oft repeated talking point stokes the fires of division via class warfare while absolving the Left from charges of theft when they steal almost everyone’s hard earned property. They empower themselves while setting people against each other, does that even sound like people who should ‘Rule the population’?
No one is talking about gun confiscation.
This is a Democratic deception that deserves a place of honour in the pantheon of Leftist mendacity. As has been well documented with over 70 cases and counting, Leftists all over the countryside have demanded gun confiscation using multiple forms or euphemisms. While at the same time other Leftists will assert with a straight face that no one is talking about that very subject. Sometimes you have to admire the conjones of a collective that will lie both ways at the same time, but not here.
You can keep your doctor.
While it’s a bit dated, it’s present day equivalent is the fantasy proposal of ‘Medicare for all’. Yes, it will all be roses and rainbows with this and all kinds of goodies courtesy of other people’s money. Just don’t ask them to fill in the funding details, they might as well talk about unicorns that will come galloping in carrying bags of golden tickets to pay for it all. It’s just a simple matter of tripling taxes to on the top 80% and viola! Free Obamacare for everyone!
Socialism has never been tried before.
If there was any occasion for a necessary lie for the Left, it would have to be this abject denial of historic fact. They certainly cannot admit to the legacy of failure that has been the reality of socialism for almost 200 years. Neither can they admit to the logical fact that is it based on the brutal application of force or that it has been the cause of a death toll of over 100 Million. For the socialist-Left, they have no other choice, they have to deny abject reality at every turn. To do something else – admit the obvious – would be to condemn their national agenda.
They have nothing else to run on except for promises that can never be fulfilled. They have to emphasise all the free goodies that will be forthcoming in their upcoming Utopia instead of the brutal reality of forcing societal slavery on the population. Free healthcare, free education, free housing and free money are just the starting bids in buying votes. Who knows what else they will promise, never mind that there isn’t the money to pay for it.
Many a nation has seen this song and dance before, followed up with secret police raids at 3:00 AM, torture and imprisonment or firing squads when the promises cannot be fulfilled. By then it’s too late, and it’s only after whole system inevitably collapses that Leftists come to the realisation that it was really socialism. Right now we have a choice that will not be available if the Democrats ever attain power.
The Takeaway for part I
Keep in mind that this dissertation only touched Left’s woefully inadequate socialist national agenda. But there is so much to cover in detailing the Democrat’s unfitness for office that this can only be a quick review of their moral deficiencies.
Bottom line: The collective lies and false labels of the Democratic Party should make the case alone that it does not deserve your vote.
