Each Day the Left Becomes More Absurd

The Left loves the idea of total authority and of imposing its will on all of us, forevermore

Published

on

Virtually every liberal or leftist viewpoint, from no need for voter ID, to the porous southern border, to Critical Race theory, to restrictions on the First Amendment is harmful to society. Their prolonged and questionable badgering related to COVID-19, and their willingness to overlook street violence, further exacerbates the perception that the Left loves the idea of total authority and of imposing its will on all of us, forevermore.

Suffer the Children

Is it okay to teach children that there are more than 50 genders? Do you believe as leftists do, for example, that children may choose their gender? Do you think that cross-dressers should be reading to children at story hour? Should mathematics, the sciences, and other core academic disciplines be taught to accommodate ‘politically diverse’ points of view? Should entire college curricula be redesigned because most of the great works of literature throughout history have been written by white males?

Are you upset when conservative speakers on campus are disrupted from speaking, or are banned altogether from campus? Should colleges set up safe spaces? Are you fine with colleges holding separate graduation exercises and celebrations for different ethnic minorities?  Curiously, can a university promise students an unbiased education when 97% of college professors’ political donations go to Democrats? Should all student loan debt be exonerated?

Is late trimester abortion acceptable? After a baby is born, is it the right of the mother and the doctor to choose whether or not that person will continue to live? Should Medicare be provided for all and, if so, how do you pay for it? Are illegal immigrants to be given free healthcare the moment they cross the border, as all Democrat presidential contenders have stated on live television? Indeed, should we have open borders, and let in anybody who wants to come here? Are sanctuary cities a good idea, and do they support the lives and aspirations of actual American citizens?

Civility and Tolerance

When newspaper headlines scream about gun violence, is wringing your hands over the issue any solace for families in Chicago or Baltimore ghetto communities who experience gun violence on a daily basis? Do you care about the issue, or do you only get riled up when the mainstream media stokes your emotions?

Tell me, is virtue signaling an acceptable form of social participation, or should one actually take appropriate, non-violent action to address a wrong? Is a comment made by a celebrity – or a politician, for that matter – 30 or 40 years ago enough to cancel his or her career? Is calling others racist acceptable when, in your own heart, you know that you are biased at times against this group or that?

Is the Marxist ideology of BLM acceptable to you? Are the goals and violent tactics of BLM and Antifa acceptable to you? If they’re proud of what they stand for, and forthright in their actions, why do Antifa members wear ski masks? Appearing in selected cities in time to cause trouble, how many of them actually hold jobs? How many pay for their transportation and housing costs?

If they do not pay for themselves, who, pray tell, is paying? Most curiously, why do they often go after the most vulnerable people they can find in any gathering? Is it okay when law enforcement stands down in the face of violence committed by those on the left?

A Meeting of the Minds?

The Left embraces mass insanity and it’s getting more absurd by the week. The COVID-related bullying of the several months has given us all a taste of what socialism would be like. What’s more,  they don’t understand the magnitude and ramifications of many of their political and social views — the Left’s agenda, if allowed to proceed, will destroy our civilization in less than a few years.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men [and women] were free.”  ~Ronald Reagan

It would be highly desirable to be able to reach consensus on some issues with those on the Left, however recent developments have indicated that that would be cultural and national suicide.

Merrick Garland’s DOJ is out of control, for example …

The point of what Biden’s Justice Department is doing is not to bring justice; the point is to terrify and intimidate his political opponents.

Published

on

Tucker continues his coverage on the DOJ and FBI’s raid on homes of people who’ve merely criticized the current administration. Highlights include:

“… an update on the Biden administration’s armed crackdown on its critics. Earlier this month, the long time FBI agent and SWAT team veteran called Steve Friend came forward to blow the whistle on what he has seen happen to the FBI under Joe Biden, and what he said was shocking.”

“According to Agent Friend, Biden’s FBI routinely uses heavily armed SWAT teams to raid the homes of American citizens who dare to criticize the administration. Now, to be clear, these are people who pose no danger to anyone. These are people who haven’t even been accused, much less convicted of a violent crime. So the point is not to bring justice, the point is to terrify and intimidate Joe Biden’s political opponents.”

“On September 19, the FBI suspended Agent Steve Friend for daring to reveal what was happening, these abuses.”

“Now, it’s illegal under federal law to punish whistleblowers, but the FBI did it anyway. And then, four days later, with Friend out of the way, on the morning of September 23, a team of nearly 30 FBI agents bristling with automatic weapons raided the home of yet another harmless man with no criminal record. That man’s name was Mark Houck. Houck is 47, he’s a leader in his local Catholic community. FBI agents pointed rifles at Houck and his wife in front of their seven children.”

“Once again, to be clear, Houck is not a terrorist, he’s never been accused of terrorism. He is instead a pro-lifer.”

“Now, Houck learned about three months ago that the DOJ planned to charge him and he offered to turn himself in voluntarily. That’s what a civilized country allows. But that wasn’t good enough for Merrick Garland’s DOJ. They wanted to punish him and terrify his family to send the right message to anyone who would dare get in the way of the Biden agenda. So the DOJ sent a team of federal agents with rifles to Houck’s home. He now faces 11 years in prison for protecting his son.”

The people of Italy win big

Of course, leftist tyrants are not happy.

Published

on

Tucker compares what’s going on in Europe with our own corrupt government here and finds them quite similar. Also, Giorgia Meloni’s big win in Italy, why she won and why the American left can’t stand it. Highlights include:

“Not a lot of Americans pay attention to European politics unless they’re very bored or work at some think-tank, and that’s understandable, but it’s a shame really, because if you look closely at what’s happening in Europe, you can learn a lot about what’s happening here.”

“Despite the castles and the funny accents and the smelly cheese, Europe is not actually that different from the United States, at least in this way. European leaders run their countries pretty much the same way our leaders run our country. They yammer on endlessly about democracy, but then at the same time they do their best to avoid democracy’s most basic requirements, like free speech and representative government.”

“You run a country in the name of the people. You’re not a king, you’re a democratically elected leader. You run it in the name of the people who live there, but at the same time it’s ‘dangerous’ to allow the opinions of those people to influence your decisions.”

“Does that sound familiar? It does because it’s exactly the kind of democracy that we live in, which is to say, a fake one.”

“In fact, there is no majority in any country on planet Earth that thinks open borders are a good idea, or that considers global warming the single biggest problem, or that thinks it’s wise to quarantine the entire population because of a flu virus. No large group of people anywhere wants these things. But in the west, everybody gets them anyway because politicians don’t care what you think. Your opinion is ‘dangerous’.”

“Shut up, racist!”

“This summer, a conservative populist called Giorgia Meloni started showing up with strong supports in the polls. Meloni was no radical, her views would’ve seemed perfectly ordinary just a decade ago. But because she resolutely refused to bow to the twin gods of climate and mass migration, people panicked. The president of the European Commission, in fact, on camera commanded Italians not to vote for her.”

“These aren’t mysteries, but you’re not allowed to acknowledge them in public, period. In some places it’s illegal. But, Meloni is one of the few politicians who doesn’t care and has been willing to say the obvious, the Truth, out loud, and as a result of that, because she’s been willing to say what everybody actually knows, last night her party, called ‘Brothers of Italy,’ won an overwhelming victory in Italy.”

“American families are facing the very same onslaught from the very same poisonous ideologies. The difference is that in this country it’s rarely acknowledged except on the fringes. Meloni is not on the fringes, she’s the new Prime Minister of Italy, she will be, and she’s saying it out loud. Contrast that to what’s happening in the United States. House Republicans just spelled out what they’re running on. It’s a document called ‘the Commitment to America.'”

“You probably haven’t read it, nobody really cares. Why? Because there’s nothing real in it. There’s not a single word in that document about the attacks on the American family that you see every day.”

“It’s their hysteria and their total unwillingness to ask obvious questions that lets you in on the secret, which is they’re panicked, because they know the current system is doomed.”

“And in fact, what happened last night in Italy is the best case scenario for them, because it was a peaceful transfer of power. That’s a good thing, that’s what you want. In a democracy, people should be allowed to have some influence on the priorities of the government that claims to represent them. And when they speak in an election, the people who’ve been repudiated have a moral obligation to pause just for one second and ask, ‘Why didn’t they like what I was offering them?'”

“But they never ask themselves that. They never take any blame whatsoever.”
