The far-left hates liberty. Isn’t it time to stop praising them as being liberal? Part I



The far-left hates liberty Isnt it time to stop praising them as being liberal Part I

The Far-Left is losing the argument and losing the plot, it’s time to stop using terms that imply they support freedom?

This past week had the Far-Left media lined up en mass to condemn Steven Crowder in their ongoing effort in silencing those that oppose their agenda as reported by Blaine Traber. In their ever-shifting standard of ‘Hate-speech’, they have decided that certain words now fall under this undefinable standard.

If that headline sounds a bit too harsh, consider it in the context of recent events with many Far-Left radicals actively working to silence their opposition as well as deprive them of basic civil rights. That is primarily directed at those the furthest over on the Left side of the rational political spectrum. These would be the Totalitarian Ten Percent that is demanding that the nation lurch into full-on socialism.

The ire of that headline is also directed at a few on the Conservative-Right who insist on using a ‘word salad’ in describing the Left, Conservative pundits such as  Sean Hannity that insist on incorrectly labeling the Left as ‘Liberal’. Part I will detail some of the latest examples of Far-Left activists attempting to silence opposing voices as well as examining why this is the case. Part II will address the second part of the admonition in the headline, why we need to properly label the small but extremely vocal Totalitarian Ten Percent.

Leftists tend to be highly ‘selective’ in feigning outrage, depending on who is talking at the moment. One could assert that Leftist ‘comedians’ also tend to ‘harm the broader community’ but that is praised as being ‘edgy’ or whatever, without so much as a whisper of a call that they be condemned or ‘de-platformed’. Quite often these humorists are lauded for their routines that have Christians and others as the target of their abuse. This not about harm to the broader community, but the expression of ideas in the defense of individual Liberty, concepts that they can no longer abide.

Carlos Maza: ‘Milkshake them all, Make them dread public organizing’

For the uninitiated, the term ‘Milkshaking’ refers to the hurling of a milkshake onto those of the Conservative-Right to humiliate them and drive them from the public sphere as he state in this tweet:

Milkshake them all. Humiliate them at every turn. Make them dread public organizing.

Please take note of a key word in that admonition: public. This is not in the context of a private platform that can set its own vague and contradictory rules. That is a call for low-level violence in the public sphere.

There are those who try to play the checkmate move that these are private companies that can do what they want. Which is quite ironic when voiced by those of the Socialist Left given that they have no use for the important concept of private property in other discussions. They love to imply that all property is somehow under the ‘collective’ auspices of society at large, but when it comes to protecting Leftists calling for violence or denigrating certain groups, it’s suddenly ‘hands off!’, we cannot possibly tell a Leftist organisation not to be blatantly biased in the extreme. The rest of the time private property is under whatever collectivist claim that is fashionable at the moment, but when protecting the Left, that’s a different story.

Tim Pool Video: Left Wing Media Activist Email Leak Shows How They Deplatform Political Rivals

Then there is this video report from Tim Pool that exposes an e-mail from a ‘Journalist’ from Slate magazine showing how they ‘Deplatform’ a political rival in light of the actions of the Socialist–Left this past week:

Liberal Individualism is based on Liberty versus Leftist Collectivism based on coercion

There was a time when Leftists denied the obvious truth about their base ideology. They intermingled with true Liberals, parroting similar talking points and ideas. In many cases, these were close enough that they could use the cover of ‘Liberalism’ to further the ideals of collectivism. A prime example of this phenomenon were the small, culturally homogenous Scandinavian countries provide very generous governmental benefits while relying on the taxpayers of the states to foot the bill for their defense. The Socialist-Left falsely attributes these essentially free-market success stories as being examples of the functionality of socialism.

The Far-Left regularly forwards this falsehood while vehemently denying that failed socialist nations were socialist. While both agendas may have a passing resemblance in some cases, definitionally speaking Liberalism is based on individual Liberty while Leftism is based on Collectivism. This is the distinction that makes the world of difference between the two.

Individualism is based on Liberty

Liberalism is based on the philosophy of individualism, favoring individual liberty, free trade, and individual Rights.

While it is the philosophy of Collectivism that undergirds the Far-Left. This exalts the collective over the individual as in ‘Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz’ translated from the original German as: Common Good Before Individual Good.

Liberalism is based on Liberty, hence the reason that Liberal and Liberty share the same root word Libertas.
This is contrasted with the Left’s of Collectivism that has to be based in coercion, because the group has priority over the property and labour of the individual.

Collectivism is based on Coercion

Property or labour redistribution will always be the common thread that ties together the proposals or programs of the Socialist-Left. There is always some form of deprivation of the wealth of some individuals that is transferred to the Collective at large. This is always couched in terms of ‘equality’, ’fairness’ or the false assertion of a ‘right’ to other people’s money. But the fact is, the
Philosophy of collectivism or it’s better known positive sounding variation socialism will have the central tenet of individual property redistribution at its core.

It logically follows that coercion has to be endemic to any Collectivist or socialist system. This is the ugly truth of socialism and the foundational reason that Leftism is based in Lies. On occasion, some Leftists will try to assert that this can all be done on a ‘voluntary basis’, but this defies basic human nature. Even though Karl Marx was several centuries behind the times in developing the Left’s base ideology. His admonition of ‘From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs’ has to be predicated on the use of force. While there will always be those perfectly willing to line up for free benefits, the other side of the equation has to be enforced at the point of a gun.

What are the consequences of an ideology based on coercion?

Dishonesty and deception

The Collectivists on the Far-Left cannot exactly be honest about the true nature of their base ideology. They can talk a good game about all the free benefits, but they tend to neglect the source of the funds for these freebies. They will self-righteously pontificate about the alleged ‘right’ to healthcare without mentioning that it’s going to take the labour and property of others to make it work. The same holds true for every other right they want to create out of whole cloth, no matter the flowery ‘social justice’ language, there will have to be a source of other people’s money to fund it all.

Liberty Control: Silencing the opposition and controlling the language

This is the natural result of the Left having an ideology that has to rely on deception to survive. On top of the fact that it’s woefully inadequate ideas cannot compete in the marketplace of ideas.

The Left must also scrupulously control the language to cast their failed system in the best light possible. This begins with the label mentioned in the headline and continues into every realm. This will be part of the discussion in part II.

Liberty Control: A monopoly on the use of force

It’s one of those ‘coincidences’ that is also kept under wraps, but it’s a sure bet that socialists tend to favor their opposition being disarmed. The plain fact that an ideology predicated on the use of force cannot abide the people being able to ‘resist’ their benevolent dictates. Hence the reason the Left obsesses incessantly over gun confiscation.

The Takeaway

The Socialist-Left’s base ideology is set upon a foundation of coercion, concealed by a web of lies and deceptions. It is antithetical to Liberty along with free speech and the right of self-defense.

The Left cannot abide these individual rights just as it cannot abide Liberty because it stands in the way of its socialist national agenda. That is why the Far-Left hates Liberty and it is why we need to expose their language deceptions at every turn, beginning with their false labeling as Liberal.
