We look at how a quote from Ludwig von Mises perfectly summarises the Left’s hypocritical nature.
“The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement.
They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty.
They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship.
They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent.
They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau. What an alluring utopia! What a noble cause to fight!”
Ludwig von Mises
The quote from Ludwig von Mises perfectly epitomizes the duplicity of the Socialist-Left. These are people who are incapable of being honest about their fraudulent base ideology of socialism. Using a number of deceptive labels that mean the opposite of their true nature. They have only recently dropped the mask as being gun confiscators and socialists, but now they are desperately searching the floor trying to put it back on before anyone notices. Their exploitation of the word Liberal while they work overtime to destroy Liberty is the most prominent of them all. However the rest of them aside from Socialist-Left also peg the deception meter.
Two of the most infuriating tactics of the Socialist-Left: Word deception and Projection
Word deceptions and projections are two of the most infuriating aspects of dealing with our comrades on the nation’s Socialist-Left. Their tried and true tactic is to use certain words or pejorative to at a minimum set the debate favourable to them or simply ‘win’ the argument with one word or phrase.
The parody video ‘How to debate right wingers(satire)’ illustrated this quite nicely. Showing the all too common tactic of the Left accusing anyone who disagrees with them as being ‘Racist’, ‘sexist’, ‘Transphobic’, ‘Homophobic’ or any one of the plethora of one word retorts or short phrases with the singular purpose of discrediting the opposition while shutting down debate.
The second all too common tactic of the nation’s Socialist-Left is to accuse others of what they are doing-in spades. The projection tactic is meant to knock back the opposition into a defensive posture that also suppresses an open and honest debate of the issues. This is also coupled with their aggressive use of setting the terms of the debate favourable to them.
A prime example of Leftist projection
One prime example is a new publication making reference to an online ‘civil war’ replete with Leftist tropes on repealing the 2nd amendment and questioning whether or not we should have rich people while others are starving. With one of the Leftist review making the absurd presumption that the Pro-Liberty Right is somehow dividing the nation, denying science, and most infuriatingly, destroying civil liberties.
Does it have to be mentioned that it’s the pro-Liberty Right that is in favour of the scientific method or even acknowledging that there are only two genders? Or that it’s the Socialist-Left that is pitting certain groups against each other in their victimhood Olympics.
To claim that it’s the Pro-Liberty Right guilty of these actions would almost be the pinnacle of projection. Except that even those tropes are topped with the assertion that we’re trying to destroy Civil Liberties a claim that is mind-boggling in it’s scope. That is the point of such tactics, an offensive [in more ways than one] attack that sets the opposition into an immediate defensive posture.
The false claim that the Pro-Liberty Right is trying to destroy civil liberties
This is the kind of projective attack by the Socialist-Left that is breathtaking in sheer insolence given its recent actions. Aside from a few RINOs such Marko Rubio (R-FL) or Lindsey Graham (R-SC) working to destroy due process, helping along a bill to encourage Gun Confiscation SWATing [aka Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs) or “red flag laws”] on March 26th. It is primarily the Socialist-Left working overtime to destroy the common sense human and civil Right of self-defense, due process, free-speech and a host of other civil Liberties.
The Socialist-Left attacks against free-speech
These are but a few examples meant to illustrate the point, with Leftist assaults against free speech being the most egregious. After all, we have people on the Socialist-Left claiming that they are ‘Liberal’ while going after Liberty whenever they can on Twitter or YouTube. Banning certain personalities for unspecified offenses while ignoring far more damming examples from the Socialist-Left. But listen to someone on the Left, somehow those of us on the Pro-Liberty right are the culprits in this case.
The Socialist-Left attacks against the right of self-defense
Aside from the above examples, it’s been the nation’s Socialist-Left that has been conducting a full frontal assault on this basic human and civil right. With national and local efforts that simply renew their efforts after each incremental restriction on freedom. Everything from trying to carry out government control of private property to the wholesale banning and confiscation of almost every firearm. Not to mention a new effort by the Liberty grabber Left to repeal the second amendment.
Time was, the Socialist-Left would deny their final solution to the Liberty problem or get what they could with the occurrence of a ‘serious crisis’. These days, they push through freedom restricting legislation and the come around again to see what else they can get. In the meantime, they maintain the fiction that they don’t really want to ban and confiscate guns while making demands to ban and confiscate guns.
The ultimate in Leftist assaults on civil Liberties with Gun confiscation SWATing
These could rightfully hold the record [for now at least] for violating the most human and civil Liberties in one fell swoop. It should be understood that these violate the 2nd, but they also infringe on the 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th amendments. Then there is the issue that 1st is also on the chopping block since speech on the subject of firearms could deem on to be dangerous. The Left has already bandied about the idea that gun owners are ‘terrorists’, what’s to stop them from deeming every gun owner as dangerous, requiring a ‘dynamic entry’ with a SWAT team in the middle of the night?
If the Socialist-Left had a practical system instead of a fraudulent ideology, they would have no need for deception and projection. They could have simply announced what they were and lived with the electoral consequences. But then again, if their collectivist system actually worked, they would have no need to impose it by force and deprive the people of their commonsense human and Civil Liberties.
The fraud of socialism has been a failure for over 400 years, thus it can only be foisted on a people by at first deception and then later by force. That is why they cannot abide the precepts of Liberty and honesty.
