The Ludwig von Mises quote that exposes the rank hypocrisy of the Socialist-Left

The Ludwig von Mises quote that exposes the rank hypocrisy of the Socialist-Left

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?

The Takeaway

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.

    Everyone should be concerned with how far off the tracks socialist-democrats have veered. Clearly, self-respecting Black and white citizens no longer will vote for them and they’re now dependent on Latino and illegal alien voters. But even Latinos now recognize the fact that only race baiters believe this issue is about skin color, bigotry, racism and hatred. Latinos plainly see that socialist-democrats are well known liars who profit from divisiveness, bigotry and hatred.

    Regardless, illegal aliens count on support from Latinos because they share ancestry. But anyone can see that motive is as thin as Anglo Americans supporting the UK in its disputes with the US. Or Chinese Americans supporting China in its disputes with the U.S. Seems the socialist-democrat has few alternatives, one of which is to divide and trigger — as in hostility. Since they’ve lost in the civilized arena, they’re being forced into violence where their chances are better.

Mark Levin on conservatives and tyranny

Mark Levin on conservatives and tyranny

There are times when I really hate government. It’s not that I’m an anarchist or I believe there should be no laws or rules, but in recent years it seems as if government is the root cause for many of our problems. This is why it perplexes me so that people willingly ask the government to intervene in their affairs. For leftists, this is understandable as they are entitled to have the government solve all of their problems. But when I hear conservatives ask for government intervention on particular issues, I cringe.

Perhaps conservative commentator Mark Levin said it best to describe how I and many other conservatives feel. Those of us who appreciate the need for government to handle many issues such as national defense and infrastructure but who despise it when government gets involved in so many issues where it simply doesn’t belong can break our feelings down with this one line from Levin:

“The Conservative does not despise government. He despises tyranny. This is precisely why the Conservative reveres the Constitution and insists on adherence to it.”

The Constitution is not a document that grants us rights, despite what many claim. It’s a document that prevents government from trying to take away our rights bestowed on us by our Creator and affirmed by our free will.

Rewarding terrorism: Why are we encouraging mass murder with more liberty control?

Rewarding terrorism Why are we encouraging mass murder with more liberty control

Does it ever occur to the Left that depriving the people of the ability to defend themselves is exactly what the terrorists want?

Solving any type of problem begins with the proper determination of the cause of the problem. Mistakenly ascribing the wrong cause only serves to make the situation far worse because the wrong solutions are then applied.

The cause of the recent phenomena of mass murder attacks is a perverse desire for fame. This is why the miscreant in the recent tragedy in New Zealand posted a ‘manifesto’ and live streamed his horrific and cowardly actions. [Please note that we are not using his name or image]. This is also why he came out in favour of liberty [gun] control.

Rewarding behavior results in more of that behavior

Consider that the reprobates who perpetrate these attacks desperately want to make a name for themselves. Most people in this world want to do something positive to achieve fame. Some compete in athletic events, cure disease or work to solve societal problems. However, there are those who don’t have the ability or time to do this, so they decide to gain this by infamy instead. They choose to become infamous, shooting their way into the history books, with others helping them along the way by playing right into their hands with the notoriety by depriving others of their liberty.

They look at what mass murderers have done to achieve what they desperately crave. One way is to play into the hands of the Left looking to deprive the people of their right of self-defense. What better way to become infamous than to be the cause of a protracted battle over this fundamental human right?

Getting the reward of more media coverage by the cause of liberty [gun] control

The reprobate in the New Zealand attack made the entirely obvious point that many everyday items – including ordinary flour – can serve as explosives. As well as the fact that fuel mixtures can also be used for explosive or incendiary attacks, something the liberty grabber left doesn’t seem to understand is that these are also ‘weapons of war’. Alternatively there are other ordinary objects that can serve as weapons of mass murder ranging from blunt force, or edge weapons to vehicular attacks. He explicitly stated that he used firearms to attract more attention and have it be the cause of more leftist restrictions on freedom.

Even though they never discerned motive for the Las Vegas mass murder, court documents alluded to the idea that the reprobate in that crime had gun control as his cause celebre. Now in the case of the New Zealand attack, the miscreant was explicit about this in his rantings.

I chose firearms for the affect (sic) it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they would provide and the affect it could have on the politics of United states (sic) and thereby the political situation of the world. The US is torn into many factions by its second amendment, along state, social, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines.

[Our emphasis]
Note the words ‘the extra media coverage they would provide’ in reference to the use of firearms. It wasn’t just that he wanted the ‘media coverage’ from live streaming this horror with writing all over his weapons or posting a long screed where he claimed to be an ‘eco-fascist’ admiring Communist China. He wanted to have this abject horror show to be the cause of excessive media coverage resulting in the deprivation of everyone’s commonsense human and civil rights.

Most of these mass murderers don’t expect to survive these attacks, but they want to ‘live on’ in infamy by any means possible. Having the media cover their horrific crimes through their perennial hobbyhorse of gun confiscation means plenty of airtime trying to make the case for these freedom-ending measures.

Leftists don’t seem to understand that their much vaunted restrictions on liberty actually make it easier for these miscreants to carry out their horrific crimes. Most of these take place in ‘gun free’ zones because the victims cannot defend themselves, making everyone an easy target and upping the body count. Despite the denial of reality of the liberty grabbers, there have also been many cases of someone on the scene halting an attack, usually with a gun. Not to mention that these crimes are always stopped when armed authority arrives.

Should we encourage further attacks by giving the terrorists exactly what they want?

Studies have shown that the extensive coverage of these horrific crimes inspires further attacks. Thus, many have chosen to not publicize the crimes of these miscreants, granting them the infamy they crave. Shouldn’t we also apply the same rule to the policy agendas openly advocated by these reprobates?

Does it make any sense to punish the innocent for the horrific acts of a criminal? Punishments that encourage and even facilitate future attacks? Criminals and terrorists will always find ways to kill or get the weaponry to do so, as attacks in places of severe restrictions on Liberty prove this to be the case. In point of fact, these restrictions only serve to help these miscreants commit their crimes, does it make any sense to continue the practice?

The Takeaway

Mass murdering terrorists crave publicity for their horrific acts of cowardice. They also seek to change society by these acts. Knuckling under and playing along with what they want only serves to encourage further attacks. The innocent having the means to defend themselves is the practical and philosophical response to terror, no matter if it runs counter to the desires of the liberty grabber left.

It’s official: Sen. Mike Lee has come out of the closet

Its official Sen Mike Lee has come out of the closet

In the Age of Trump, where Trumpservatism has replaced conservatism within the Republican party, many of those once heralded for their “strident” defense of conservative values have come out of the closet — politically speaking — to publicly admit their same-politics attraction to the Far-Left.

One such “conservative” is Gutless On Principles Hall of Shame enshrinee, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT).

Over the past two years, Lee has developed a political infatuation with Ivanka Trump’s socialist feminist agenda and has worked to advance many of the same policies promoted by Hillary Clinton during her 2016 campaign.

Lee, along with Marco Rubio, were same-politics partners with Daddy’s precious to “help” working families by using so-called tax reform to increase their dependency on the federal government via the tax code.

A few months ago (Nov 2018), Lee was same-politics partners with Ivanka and Van Jones — yes, THAT Van Jones — to promote and eventually pass the First-Step Act, a law that Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz said gave drug traffickers and gun felons early release from prison, emasculated police and prosecutors, and made America less safe.

This brings us to Lee’s most recent out-of-the-closet moment.

In his 2018 State of the Union, Trump pushed a big-government agenda even Barack Obama would love, and his wish-list of progressive priorities included Hillary’s and Ivanka’s paid family leave. Following the SOTU, Lee, Rubio and Ivanka engaged in another political affaire de coeur to create a so-called “budget neutral” scheme that would allow individuals to borrow from their future Social Security benefits in order to take several paid weeks off work for the birth or adoption of a child.

Though temporarily put on the back burner until after the 2018 mid-terms, Trump again promoted paid family leave in his recent SOTU. And just as before, Mike Lee got to work to make it happen, this time with a new same-politics partner, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA).

Known as the CRADLE Act (Child Rearing and Development Leave Empowerment Act), Lee and Ernst have proposed a plan that will allow America to “catch up with other countries” by creating a cradle-to-grave welfare state sure to bring a smile to Ivanka’s face.

Conservatives know that creating a new entitlement is a bad idea for a host of reasons. But when you add the U.S. debt crisis, the unfunded liabilities of $123 trillion dollars and growing already on the books for entitlements, and the fact that Social Security is projected to be bankrupt in 15 years, Lee’s socialist-friendly proposal is epitome of out-of-control big government.

Mike Lee has officially come out of the closet to declare his same-politics attraction to the Far-Left. Meanwhile, the search for a “straight” conservative in Washington continues.
