The Left’s entire world-view is one of hate and revenge.https://t.co/FH3YNzNMI9

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?
