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.

Do not presume to know if someone is saved, even if they’re pro-abortion pastors

Do not presume to know if someone is saved even if theyre pro-abortion pastors

This could very easily turn into a discussion about Arminianism versus Calvinism, but that’s a topic I’m still not ready to tackle on this site. One thing I will tackle is the presumptive nature that guides many people to make calls about who is a Christian and who’s a false-Christian as if they’re baseball umpires calling balls or strikes.

It’s something I’ve faced on literally hundreds if not thousands of occasions over the years. People will read my bio on the various social networks, then use my proclamation of being a Christian to call out my posts. Heck, it happened twice today on a reply I sent to Kamala Harris on Twitter that had absolutely nothing to do with faith. I’ve grown used to it, and I try my hardest to never let it get to me on a personal level. I’ve found that many who call me out for a Tweet or Facebook post are simply disagreeing with the content and trying to shame me by saying it’s not very Christian-like. This is a common tactic, folks, so be mindful of it if you face similar complaints.

But today I’d like to discuss a similar situation. Should Christians call out other’s who profess to be Christians based on actions or perspectives that are clearly non-Biblical? The answer to this question, in my humble opinion, is yes and no. Yes, I believe it behooves us as Bible-believers to call out the actions of others, particularly if they profess to be Christians. No, I do not believe we should be claiming people are not Christians because of their misguided beliefs or actions. That’s a call that’s way above our pay grade.

For example, there was a lot of controversy over a letter by 150 Christian leaders who support a pro-choice stance. As most Christians know, abortion is not a Biblical practice and is spoken against in the Bible itself. We should definitely be calling on those who are supportive of abortion and who also profess their faith, but we shouldn’t be telling them they’re going to burn in hell over their perspective, that they have no Grace, or that they’re not really Christians. I said it before and I can’t really say it enough – such things are above our pay grade.

We know from the Bible what God disapproves of, but we are not capable of known WHO God approves of, as in who He considers to be saved as a Christian. When we tell people who believe they are saved that they’re actually not saved because they believe in abortion, we’re presuming to know God’s Will on such matters. We do not.

If we want to call out the sin, that’s proper. If we’re telling a sinner they’re condemned to hell because of their sin, it’s like taking on the role of passing eternal judgment. That is not our calling. Mind your tongues, folks. God does.

Michael J. Knowles on the reality of ‘white privilege’ and intersectionality

Michael J Knowles on the reality of white privilege and intersectionality

There’s a strange contradiction that’s been essentially taking over the mentality of many leftists for some time now. The contradiction has to do with bigotry and is framed around the concept of “white privilege.”

If you’re white, you instantly have privilege in their eyes. If you also happen to be a straight male, you really, really have privilege. This characterization by the left does two things. It paints those who are straight male Caucasians as not being capable of experiencing the types of hardships experienced by others and it forces anyone who is not a straight male Caucasian to embrace their victimhood if they’re going to be part of the leftist tribe.

This is, of course, all ludicrous. White privilege is a myth in today’s America. There are enough safeguards to protect those who aren’t straight white males from persecuting the rest of us, and those safeguards have been working. But that’s not enough for the left. They aren’t looking for equality. They want the status they place on people of having “white privilege” to work against them.

Michael J. Knowles and Andrew Klavan from the DailyWire took to Texas A&M to discuss some of the challenges leftists force onto people, particularly at college campuses in America. The event, hosted by YAF, yielded an extremely interesting series of discussions. You can watch the whole event here.

Knowles was asked about “white privilege” and gave a thoughtful response. Here’s one important quote from his answer:

“Ironically what this ideology does is it turns privilege into victimhood and it turns victimhood into privilege, and that’s the upside down world of the left, and it’s why they go after you on immutable characteristics such as the color of your skin and your biology and your chromosomes.”

Will there ever come a time when the left is willing to look past our gender, religion, sexual preference, or the color of our skin and simply see people as who they are? The way things are going, it doesn’t seem like it.

Why does the national socialist-left overreact to the proper labeling of the Nazis as being far-left?

Why does the national socialist-left overreact to the proper labeling of the Nazis as being far-left

A recitation of basic historical facts will bring forth all manner of vitriol and condemnation from the left. Why is this the case?

Properly labeling the Nazis as a far-left National Socialist German Workers’ Party will bring forth a stunning overreaction from the nation’s socialist-left. Why do they overreact denying their past? Why is this one of the worst aspects of the cultural civil war being waged by the left?

Overreacting to history

The past few years have seen the Left become increasingly detached from reality with logical arguments verging further and further from their grasp, seeing them having to compensate for their abilities and lack of practical solutions with ad hominem attacks or childish invective. The worst examples being of the genre of the ‘debunking’ article or video of the statement of the facts of the Nazi party, with most beginning with vitriol unworthy of a 5-year-old. In many cases their circular logic has devolved down to there is no reason to debate those of us on the pro-liberty right because we are essentially wrong.

A debate on the biggest historical lies in modern history does bring forth a question in why the left overreacts to the discussion. Why do they care about the base ideology of a group of socialists that were only around for a mercifully short time, over 70 years ago? Are they terribly worried that the Nazis will be correctly identified as part of an ideology that has oppressed and deliberately murdered millions of people, thus tarring their reputation?

Leftists never directly explain why certain groups are ‘right-wing’

While they will often assert that fascism is some manifestation of extremism of the political right, they fail to explain why this is the case. They simply assert the presumption and quickly ‘move-on’ to issue further insults against the pro-liberty right. The best they can offer is that ‘fascist states practiced business-friendly economic policies’ or that certain people voted for them. Or it’s the shop-worn ‘rivalry’ talking point often trotted out by the left. The problem for the left is that none of those items even come close to proving the case no matter how many times they repeat them.

This is after all, the biggest lie in modern history and a complete reversal of the meaning of common words. Those kinds of extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, but leftists never even get up to the starting block. Leftists begin with the presumption that the Nazis were ‘right-wing’ and they simply repeat the charge ad nauseam, despite not having any to proof this is the case. It could just be a coincidence that historic falsehood just happens to absolve their side of the political spectrum of the worst horrors of WWII.

Leftists presume the Nazis were ‘right-wing’ since they were ‘right-wing’, simply because they were ‘right-wing’. With the magic of circular logic, anyone can be ‘right-wing’ because they are said to be ‘right-wing’. Start off with a one-line editorial and simply build on the presumption, never mind proving the case with facts.

Why does the Left tar their opposition as ‘right-wing’ no matter how it defies basic logic?

Stalin was the originator of casting his political opponents as fascists and supposedly ‘right-wing’ despite a dearth of evidence. So it’s not without the least bit of historic irony that one of the ‘reactionary’ articles on the issue makes the stunning revelation that the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics under good old Uncle Jo was in fact a ‘right-wing terroristic totalitarian regime’. Yes indeed, in an article on the admittedly leftist site ‘Wrath-Bearing Tree’ in a piece entitled: No, Nazis were Not Leftists: Or, How to Debunk Right-Wing Propaganda. The author makes this stunning revelation – without evidence –overreacting to an article on the subject in The Federalist.

For those who shout “What about Stalin?!”, the answer is that the Soviet Union, especially under Stalin, was also a right-wing terroristic totalitarian regime, despite the supposed “leftism” of Communist ideology that could be traced back to said Enlightenment values. The Soviet Union was never really Communist in anything but name, but from the beginning governed as just another kleptocratic oligarachy much more authoritarian than any Tsar ever dreamed of. Vladimir Nabokov, in his memoirs, calls the Bolsheviks (who assassinated his father, by the way) “fascists.” So the answer is that the Nazis weren’t “leftist,” but that the Soviet Union was actually “rightist.”

[our emphasis]

It would seem that the nation’s socialist-left doesn’t tire of going to the well in trying to foster the ‘that wasn’t really socialism’ lie. A lie, they insist on maintaining with the socialist nation of Venezuela.

Who knew that Bernie Sanders was ‘Right-wing’?

Lest anyone consider those previous revelations to top the heap of the illogic of the Socialist-Left, we present this piece from World Socialist Web Site entitled: Bernie Sanders silent on Assange, vocal in promoting nationalism at Michigan, asserting that socialist Bernie Sanders is really ‘Right-wing’:

Seeking to attack Trump from the right and outdo the president’s appeal to chauvinism and xenophobia, the Vermont senator declared: “The NAFTA treaty that Trump renegotiated with Mexico will still allow companies like General Motors to send our jobs to Mexico.

Sanders’ silent support for the persecution of Assange and his promotion of nationalism arise from his pro-capitalist, pro-imperialist political orientation. These right-wing positions demonstrate that his real aim is not, as he claims, to lead a “political revolution” against the “billionaire class,” but to misdirect, disorient and suppress opposition among workers and young people by channeling it behind the corporate-controlled, pro-war Democratic Party.

[Our Emphasis]

Leftists will brand anyone they consider to be the opposition as ‘right-wing’ at the drop of a hat, just as they will overreact to any challenge to their ‘That wasn’t really socialism’ mythology. They maintain these tactics and outright lies for two closely related reasons. This is to protect their base ideology, and to balance out the butcher’s bill.

Protecting the ideology of socialism

An ideology based on ancient ideas enslaves, oppresses and has deliberately murdered over 100 million people with a track record of 400 years of failure somehow tends to get a bad reputation. So it only follows that its current votaries in trying to foist it on a new generation would seek to make it sound like something other than what has brought on the horrors of the past. It’s akin to a car dealership that at one was called Robert Francis O’Rourke’s used cars is now Beto’s better deals in trying to take in a new class of suckers.

Balancing out the butcher’s bill

Even worse than keeping their base ideology ‘pure’ by insisting that it’s never really been implemented correctly is their use of these lies to try to absolve its blood soaked history. The presumption being that even though various sundry Communists have killed millions, they can point to the Nazis in one of history’s more perverse forms of ‘whataboutism’.

It is for this reason that the national socialist left overreacts with such vehemence to the recitation of the truth. Given these facts from history, it is clear that the organized evil of the modern age redounds mostly to the left. They are the one with blood on their hands, even though they attempt to project it on others.

The Dangerous mystique of Nazism

There are two very dangerous effects of leftist attempts of constantly trying to rewrite history. One is that it provides a certain level of ‘mystique’ to the Nazis, Lending itself to those of a certain disaffected status to emulate this horrid ideology. This would be far less likely if the truth about this party wasn’t undergoing constant obscurement by the nation’s socialist-left.

Shedding some of the dark side of socialism

This leftist mythology also keeps the full horror of the record of socialism under wraps. Leftists will always insist on the ‘that wasn’t really socialism’ lie. But with the Nazis as part of their own, they can’t palm off some it horrors on the ‘right wing’. Thus new adherents aren’t repulsed by the horrific past of the left’s base ideology. There would be far fewer new minted socialists if they were apprised of the full truth of the collectivist ‘faith’.

The Takeaway

There is a very good reason the national socialist-left overreacts to anyone daring to bring up certain historical facts. While it’s a part of the ‘that wasn’t really socialism’ lie, it also provides them with a convenient excuse for the deprivations of those nations that are at least for now acknowledged as leftist by the left. Soon enough they will try to work their magic in rewriting history to somehow term failed socialist nations to be somehow ‘right wing’. So at least in their minds, their base ideology will be left unsullied by oppression and deliberate mass murder.

For everyone else, the truth is becoming manifest, that the myriad variations in collectivism have all failed with horrific results for millions of people. We have reached the end of the age of experimentation in government. Those predicated on individual liberty and economic freedom are vastly superior to those based on collectivism and economic slavery. The truth of the matter will bare this out, leaving the socialist-left out in the cold as they deserve.
