Memo to the leftists: You don’t really have to exploit every serious crisis

Memo to the leftists You dont really have to exploit every serious crisis

The nation’s Left needs to know that trying to politicize and exploit every tragedy will only serve to further divide the country.

Word comes in over the wire of a tragedy and the twin emotions of horror and dread take over. Horror that people have died and dread knowing that certain elements of our society will jump into the fray trying to exploit the attack for maximum political effect following this tragedy.

Within minutes of the news breaking on the mass murder in Christchurch, New Zealand, the usual suspects sprang into action trying to callously use the deaths of other people for their crass political gain.

The infuriating reaction to the Judeo-Christian action of offering thoughts and prayers

Our political discourse has devolved down to talking point shorthand meant to ‘Rahm’ certain agenda items down our throats without consideration of human tragedy that has taken place. There is no better exemplification of this than the usual controversy of offering ‘Thoughts and Prayers’. As is typical of certain memes in our dysfunctional society, the Judeo-Christian action of prayer is often mocked by many on the Left.

The short hand of this meme is that we’re supposed to immediately think of how we can offer up more of our Liberty as a sacrifice for our ‘collective’ guilt. It is not enough to offer sympathy to the victims of a tragedy, we must instead think of ways to mitigate our ‘guilt’ in this matter. Whether those make any sense or will do any good is irrelevant.

An ever shifting blame narrative

It’s almost a sick obsession of some of the Left to use the pain and suffering of others to further their political power. They couldn’t make headway on Liberty control, since guns are tightly regulated in New Zealand. Therefore, they shifted the narrative to the next best thing, attacking some on the Pro-Liberty Right and going after free speech. It is ever supremely ironic that those who falsely cast themselves as being ‘Liberal’ have the cause of Liberty as their first target in the exploitation of these tragedies.

What they don’t realize within the confines of their echo chamber myopia is that they’re supposed holding of the moral high ground is only a circular logic construct on their part. They seem to think they are on the ‘right side of history’ because they tell themselves they are on the ‘right side of history’. This is what happens when one is unmoored in basic principles.

At this point in time, we are well apprised of what works and what doesn’t. Limited government imbued with Liberty is the gold standard, while other systems based on collectivism belong in the dustbin of history. This should be self-evident as in the words of Thomas Jefferson. Never the less, there are those who insist on replicating the same mistakes that have brought ruin to experiments in collectivism for over 4 centuries.

Collectivists are on the wrong side of history

Those who favor the dead-end of collectivism are on the wrong side of history. Those who favor Liberty and Limited government are on the Right side of history. Being on the side that is adverse to Liberty entails the need to take advantage of every opportunity, thus it those on the wrong side who have to exploit every crisis.

There is one distinct disadvantage of being disconnected from logic and reality as those on the nation’s Socialist-Left. If someone is so disposed, they may think that each crisis exploitation will bring them to their ultimate goal of ruling over everyone else. This is why they try to exploit every crisis.

The problem for them is that this does nothing of the kind. Granted, they will gain some short-term victories here and there, but after a while most people see what they are doing. We really only witnessed one prominent Leftist attempting to use the ‘thoughts and prayers’ admonishment.

The Takeaway

It’s always shocking to realize that the very people who by their cynical self-labeling consider themselves to be champions of Liberty and progress are nothing of the kind.

That their incessant exploitation of crisis only serves to empower themselves an enslave the people, moving backwards on the arc of history. Each time drives everyone further into separate factions, each time fosters more dissension and division. That while they try to use every crisis to unify the country under one banner this is more akin to bringing a team of horses under one whip.

Anti-Semite Tom Wright-Piersanti is the true heart of the NY Times

Anti-Semite Tom Wright-Piersanti is the true heart of the NY Times

Progressive journalism is a double-standard wrapped in hypocrisy and served on a plate with no self-awareness. That’s why revelations that NY Times senior staff editor Tom Wright-Piersanti posted several racist and anti-Semitic Tweets in the past came as absolutely no surprise to me when Breitbart broke the story this morning.

The Tweets insulted Jews, Native-Americans, and Hispanics and date back as far as 2009. But even as he scrambles to remove official record of his feelings, the remnant of them remain. Some have grabbed screenshots. We’ll go ahead and post the text from some of his Tweets so the words remain in text-form indefinitely.

I think I just heard him say “Hoes, Hoes, Hoes! Merry Cripmas!” Does anyone know who it could be???

http://bit.ly/QCGfF WEIRD. This woman’s Spanish jumps back and forth between a pleasant Mexican “distinción” and a halting Spanish “ceceo.”


Is Wright-Piersanti a unique case? No. Progressive journalists such as the vast majority on staff at the NY Times have been shielded from scrutiny. It’s not that anyone is actively trying to cover up for the racism or anti-America sentiment that flows freely in newsrooms across the country. It’s that the people who normally engage in investigating people’s history on public sites like social media are searching for conservatives to bash. This is a leftist technique, one that more conservatives should adopt as the cries of “Republicans are racists” continue to be bellowed out by mainstream media.

The saddest part is the NY Times is unlikely to act and leftist media is unlikely to report on this much. If these Tweets were posted by someone at Breitbart or One America News, it would be the top story in the news cycle and every Tweet supporting President Trump by the journalist would be used as evidence for the racism narrative the left is trying to paint about the right. But Wright-Piersanti is not a Trump supporter and neither is the NY Times.

Tom Wright-Piersanti isn’t a one-off case. He’s indicative of the hypocrisy that’s rampant throughout mainstream media as they seek evidence that conservatives are racist while ignoring the racists in the mirror.

After indignant virtue signaling costs billions, Gillette quietly ‘shifts’ away from social justice

After indignant virtue signaling costs billions Gillette quietly shifts away from social justice

Social justice backfired for Gillette. Despite innumerable complaints and an exodus of customers, the razor maker remained fervently proud of their ad campaigns attacking “toxic masculinity” to the point that CEO and president Gary Coombe said it was a “price worth paying.” They’re standing by their ads and are claiming they helped them reach a younger millennial audience, increase brand awareness, and put forward the type of company message they want portrayed.

If losing $8 billion was worth the message, they’re stronger activists than most.

“P&G reported a net loss of about $5.24 billion, or $2.12 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, due to an $8 billion non-cash writedown of Gillette. For the same period last year,” Reuters reported, “P&G’s net income was $1.89 billion, or 72 cents per share.”

Despite the massive loss over the controversial ads. they claim to have no regrets. This claims were made three weeks ago and delivered with bluster in multiple interviews for damage control. This week brought a different tone as they’re now “shifting the spotlight from social issues to local heroes.”

The new campaigns have already launched in Australia with a slow rollout in the United States expected next month. Here’s the local Australian hero they’re focusing on. Needless to say, he’s not representing a social justice cause, nor is he worried about exuding toxic masculinity.

This is an unambiguous attempt to escape the controversial corner they painted themselves into that cost them billions, but don’t let progressive media know because they’re certain the social justice campaign was wonderful. They’re so certain about this that they’re blaming the loss on men suddenly loving beards. Seriously.

Companies like Gillette are learning being “woke” makes you broke. That’s how business works; alienating half of your customers for the sake of politics is never a good move. Stick to business. Leave social justice to the basement warriors.

We don’t need ‘red flag’ gun confiscation laws. The solution to the problem is already in place.

We dont need red flag gun confiscation laws The solution to the problem is already in place

Laws for Civil Commitment procedures that also protect due process are in place in every state -‘crisis’ solved QED.

The Authoritarian Socialist Left keeps on insisting that there is a ‘serious crisis’ and that Gun Confiscation SWATing laws are desperately needed before anyone can rationally think through their true implications of destroying due process and the presumption of innocence.

The problem for the Left is that there really isn’t a ‘crisis’ since there are laws on the books to handle situations where someone may be a danger to themselves. We have already proven this here, therefore, there is no reason to implement these draconian measures that will serve to eviscerate multiple parts of the bill of rights in one fell swoop. Thus the solution to this problem should be pretty straightforward, point this out to everyone and move on to other issues of greater importance.

Solving the problem by simply pointing out that the solution already exists.

We supposedly need to discuss this issue immediately, without any delay. Fine, it is just a matter of having President Trump or Senate Majority Leader McConnell schedule a formal announcement on this allegedly intractable issue. This announcement would simply reiterate that laws for Civil Commitment are already on the books, so there is no reason to waste precious time in debating a non-issue. We also have the added bonus that these laws also protect civil Liberties, something of primary importance for those of us on the pro-Liberty Right.

It will be a formal announcement that there is absolutely no reason for these laws, followed with a press kit detailing Civil Commitment procedures in every state. Then it will be logical to ask why the authoritarian Left keeps on demanding news laws for a problem that has already been solved. Please note that they are essentially doing that on the Intergalactic Background Check issue, since these also already exist, but that’s a separate issue.

Consider the reasons why the politicians should accept this elegant solution to the problem:

  • It wouldn’t require any new laws.
  • It wouldn’t take any political wrangling.
  • It would solve the problem immediately.
  • It would protect the bill of rights –specifically the 2nd, 4th, 5 and 6th amendments.
  • It will resolve the situation with minimum trouble.

Why aren’t the politicians already calling for this perfect solution to the problem?

There are only two reasons why this perfect solution has not been brought forward by the legislators on either side. Either they don’t know the law – which is absurd – or they want the power they would attain from ‘Red Flag’ Gun Confiscation.

Legislators really have only one job – to understand and perfect the law. They should have already known about this solution. This means they only have one reason to push for Gun Confiscation SWATing laws. These politicians would clearly like to expand their own power, even now, Democratic presidential contender Kamala Harris is salivating at confiscating the guns of those merely accused of ‘thought Crime’.
Who know what clever ways they will develop for their new-found power? We’ve already shown that these laws don’t work as advertised, that they have caused more problems than they have solved and they are a civil rights nightmare. Why are they being imposed by the government to solve a problem that has been already addressed?

The Bottom-Line.

This editorial could have been just two lines – the headline and the subhead – summarizing the whole point. Solving the problem that gun Confiscation SWATing is supposed to address is simply a matter of following existing law. The same could be said for liberticidal Leftist power grabs – Intergalactic Background Checks, the ‘Assault Weapon’ scam.. er ban and most everything else. It’s already illegal for felons and others to possess firearms. Thus, these measures are like making things double secret, illegal, in the vain hope that people who don’t follow the law [hence the term ‘lawbreaker’] will suddenly do so because of the magic of a new law on the books.

In the specific example here, the laws already exist and they protect due process. Politicians on both sides of the aisle simply need to step up and use them instead of trying to use the latest ‘serious crisis’ to grab even more power for themselves.
