The truth about the left

Indeed.  Bill Whittle sums it up:

They’re not coming after us with guns, they’re not coming after us with tanks, and they’re not coming after us by taking over the government. The defenses that we’ve established on those lines are overwhelming. They’re unassailable defenses; the first amendment essentially still is unassailable, and so is the right to keep and bear arms, and so on.

But in any event, we prepared ourselves so well against invasion from that quarter that they simply decided it was pointless to attack there, so they attacked someplace else. And the censorship that they want is not being enforced by the government, and it’s not being backed up by tanks or soldiers with guns; the government’s not censoring anything we do.

The censorship that they’re looking for, and the control of people’s thoughts and minds is accomplished by social opprobrium.

It’s accomplished by shaming people, and not just shaming them, by ruining their lives in the many ways that they know how to. The way they ruined the lives of the person who decided he didn’t want to deliver a cake to a gay wedding: that is not allowed, and so he must be destroyed.

So, if the Left doesn’t have guns – and they don’t; and if they don’t have direct government suppression – and they don’t; then how have they achieved everything they’ve achieved, how have they kept us so silenced?

The only power that the Left has – and it’s enormous power – the only power that the Left has is the power that you give them yourself: it’s the power of social proof.

Social proof and peer pressure is the most powerful motivator in human psychology. Every single one of us out there has things we know to be true – such as certain countries in the world being complete shitholes – and we won’t say them, and we won’t say them because we know that what will happen to us will be so damning that we just don’t want to go through with it.

You can always tell someone from the left – she [or he] says there is no such thing as “left” and we haters should not be labelling people thus.

One of the prime characteristics of the left, in common with the underlying power behind government, is that they must interfere, must micromanage people’s lives, must constantly change things for the sake of change. They can never leave well enough alone.

And they never apply the rules to themselves. Let’s take a survey of how many leftists host “refugees” – personally I mean, at their own expense? NIMBY eh?

    One thought I’ve had for a while is what would the lefty haters have done if the the bakers had baked their cake, anti-human wording and all? Would they have moved on to find another target who would comply with their intentions and refuse? Or would they have used the outcome to denigrate the bakers for not sticking to their beliefs?

    I think they’d have done both. So, if I’m correct, giving in to evil doesn’t make the evil go away, it just perpetuates it.

    Another, perhaps, weakness of goodness is that when we win and evil is overcome, we never crush the evil ones into the earth, so far that it would take centuries for them to rise again. Instead, we walk away, thinking that’s the end of the matter, whereas evil will never die until Jesus returns and defeats it forever.

    So, that’s why we have to be ever vigilant to recognise and oppose evil everytime it rears its ugly head. And that’s why, in the words of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, it’s imperative we teach our children well.

    It’s all part of programming the human psyche. The Left have tried this for centuries. It always fails because human nature inevitably says no.

    Thing is, that’s usually after a horrific atrocity, such as millions dead through famine, war or both. For them, control is the end goal. hey never achieve anything though. Never build anything. never make anything. Never actually push mankind forward despite their absurd marketing.

    All they do is force people backward, because that’s what they want. They want ‘fairness’ because they’re basically lazy and want a free ride. They want ‘tolerance’ but only if you agree with them. They want people to pay more tax – but they want ‘other people’ to pay more tax. They want things to be cheap but want high taxes, screwing over companies who they hate but exist upon, enjoying all the benefits of a strong, Right wing market economy with a Hard Left socialist agenda.

    It doesn’t work. Look around you for the evidence.

    “They’re not coming after us with guns,….”
    They don’t need to. They surreptitiously insert Frankfurt School proposals into society so that common sense, decency, and respect, are slowly destroyed under the weight of PCisms.
    Just consider how many of those FS proposals are either now enshrined in law, or accepted by society, and heaven help anyone who tries to debate whether these proposals are beneficial to all, rather than a selected few.
