What the Left Is Doing While We’re Complaining and Entertaining

Published

on

You want to know the real reason why the left is making incredible inroads into all areas of life despite the fact they have unlikable, unbelievable positions? Because they are doers. Our side may have better looking people, but that translates into we are more likely to lounge around watching political talk shows and whine. We’re the side known for having long policy conferences sitting around criticizing the problems in society. We have all these stars on our side who entertain us. Turn on right-wing TV and you feel like you’re looking at models. We have the best memes. We’re standing on street corners waving Trump signs and bragging about having the largest rallies.

In contrast, the left is out walking, knocking on doors recruiting voters, hanging out in nursing homes bringing cookies to the staff pretending they care about old people in order to get their votes. They’re doing opposition research behind the scenes. While we’re frothing at the mouth saying outrageous things to raise money and attract attention, they’re secretly watching long hours of our conferences and campaign rallies collecting our careless mistakes. One frustrated congressman told me that while he was speaking at a two hour meeting to a group of 100 activists, those 100 activists could have been out knocking on doors; 200 hours of work they could have accomplished.

The left is out there making our feeble-minded conservatives representative of the rest of us while we’re stuck reacting and trying to defend them. I have a lefty friend who brings up outrageous things that people on the right do before I’ve even heard of the person or their actions. He’ll say, “Your side is causing people to die,” or “Your side believes all these conspiracy theories that have no basis in fact,” or “Your side advocates for violence,” getting the spin out there and setting the narrative before we even know what’s going on. We gullibly fall for it, and end up spending all of our time defending the mistakes by little known or attention getting conservatives.

Yes, it’s true that what they said is free speech. But it’s a red herring. I don’t have all the answers, because yes we need to defend all free speech or they will come after the rest of us, and they already are canceling the rest of us for things that clearly weren’t merely careless or egotistical; the left canceled me last year using forgery. But always being on the defensive is not going to win the political debate, the left figured this out years ago with Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.

We wring our hands when we hear about another company turning against the right. It seems like we’re being driven out of all areas of society. But it’s actually not as bad as it seems, the left is forcing these changes; people aren’t actually all becoming leftists. As I wrote in July, despite the false rhetoric, Republicans are becoming the party of young people while Democrats the party of elderly. The left isn’t running corporations, they are engaging in targeted attacks to force the corporations to do what they want. Jesse Jackson popularized the tactics of shaking down corporations to support his agenda years ago, now it’s become mainstream on the left.

The instant the Supreme Court ruled that it was not stopping Texas’s heartbeat abortion law from going into effect, a handful of radical left-wing activists paid their social media troll factories to start bombarding relevant corporations with threats. Sure enough, a few caved. Lyft and Uber said they would pay the legal fees of drivers sued under the law. Go Daddy — where I used to be a corporate attorney — kicked off a site set up by Texas Right to Life to report those in violation of the law. Go Daddy isn’t run by monsters, they just couldn’t withstand the threats from a handful of paid trolls who have all the time in the world sitting around in their parents’ basements on George Soros money harassing the right.

The left makes up these disaster scenarios involving the right which have nothing to do with reality. They say we are trying to turn the country back to a previous era which was horrible for minorities and women but it’s not true. I addressed this fallacy in 2017. They say they are scared about what horrible things the right would do, but it’s an Orwellian argument; the left is doing horrible things to the right, stamping us out of society which has become so prevalent there’s now a phrase for it, cancel culture.

Anne Applebaum, a left-leaning writer at The Atlantic, wrote an article recently exposing the cancel culture in academia, proudly declaring that it’s not the left going after the right, because most of the professors she interviewed were middle of the road to leftist. Well the reason for this is because conservatives were driven out of academia long before the phrase cancel culture emerged! There are none left to attack, so the left is naturally imploding on itself. You can’t create a political philosophy based on promoting one group in society over another, because it goes contrary to human nature. We’re all created differently as individuals, we don’t fall solely into groups.

Now, it’s true that many of us are only in politics for entertainment, we view it as a hobby, so naturally we are going to be drawn to armchair quarterback positions watching political talk shows and yelling at the TV. And others aren’t wired to do the boring, routine work of walking door to door or painstakingly watching every minute of a boring Democrat convention and then bombarding companies with fake emails and tweets. Because most of us have high ethical standards as Christians, we shy away from bombarding companies with anonymous messages claiming to be black gay females.

It’s OK to rant. But some of this we can start doing. If you’re not going to take the steps necessary to stop the left, then don’t expect the needle to move.

Joe Biden Bingo

Here is a tool which could help you to stay tuned on broadcasts featuring our acting president

Published

on

Even if you caught only snippets of Joe Biden’s recent press conference, you know that his mental decline continues unabated. It’s unlikely that even a handful of Americans watched the event in its entirety. Who would want to waste their time?

What’s occurring is a national travesty, and it is increasingly evident to larger portions of our population that Joe Biden is being abused as an elder, as he abuses others.

Throughout his 365 days in office, Biden has struggled to pronounce a word and then offers a non-sequitur to what he was originally saying. With regularity he tells stories that are simply false. He refers to his vice president as president. He insults vast segments of the population. He stumbles and stammers repeatedly. He checks his watch, fumbles with his mask, and snaps at people when he doesn’t like a question. And those are the least of his faux pas with audiences.

If you’re having trouble listening to Joe for more than a minute, the tool above might work for you. On the Facebook site, “Best of the Web,” I saw this Biden bingo card. It could help you to stay the course when tuned into other broadcasts featuring our acting president.

‘Anti-Racists’ are Racist: Do Not Apologize for Being White

‘Anti-racists’ claim that whites, by virtue of their skin color, are detrimental to society

Published

on

Ibram X. Kendri, the bigoted professor from Boston University and director of their Center for Antiracist Research, says that whiteness is a problem for all of society, indeed for the entire globe. Who knew?!

Kendri, who was included in Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020, seemingly knows a lot about white people. In fact, he professes to know about every white person in America if not all over the world.

Me? I’m one of those people who merely gets up every day, brushes his teeth, gets dressed, eats a decent breakfast, and goes to work. I had no inkling that in the U.S. and other western nations white people like me had been “socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white.” How naive I have been all these years!

Now I discover that to be “less white” is a virtue! It requires one to be “less oppressive, less arrogant, less certain, less defensive, less ignorant,” and, more humble, more willing to listen, more willing to believe, and, get this, “to break with the apathy” that white people like me exhibit and “to break with white solidarity.”

Woke Institutions and Brainwashed Authors

White solidarity? Darn, nobody told me about this. Thank goodness it’s all become so clear thanks to enlightened (white) authors such as Robin DiAngelo, who wrote the thoroughly racist and condescending book White Fragility, and thanks to companies such as Coca-Cola which have the foresight to impose programs for its white employees, to be less white.

When there’s a challenge in front of me, I actually do strive to find the right answer, particularly something related to numbers. I will collaborate on occasion, but most of the time I prefer to figure out things for myself, aided by the “all-knowing” Internet.

Am I arrogant, oppressive,  defensive, or ignorant? No one has ever brought this up. Being white, however, I guess I can’t help it! I don’t seek to inhibit the success of others, but I’m now informed that by virtue of my skin color I am detrimental to society. Mea culpa!

The Anti-Racist Racists

With Coca-Cola and other organizations teaching white people to be less white, I’m wondering, will the sequel be how Asians can be less yellow and Indians can be less brown? In America, both groups seem to excel academically. Perhaps only domineering Caucasians, particularly 60+ white males like me, however, are the ones upsetting the apple cart all over society.

Was I given a free pass for the last 40 years? I mean, all the while nobody mentioned my whiteness as a social and cultural problem. My black friends from Little League, high school, various hiking groups, and other groups around town haven’t said squat. So, up ’til now, presumably, I was doing okay. Perhaps they’ve merely been nice to me while whispering behind my back.

Heeding the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I thought our common goal was to live in harmony and to reach a state of color blindness where people were judged by the content of their character and not by their skin color. Hmmm…  I guess that is no longer in play.

I’m wondering, what would MLK conclude about today? Would he speak up against the propensity of the Left to define everybody else by class, sex, or race? Would he be opposed to pitting young against old, rich against poor, black against white, rural against urban, male against female, and all the other phony dichotomies that the Left relentlessly promulgates each day?

Absurd From the Get-Go

Imagine the unending uproar if someone drew up a list of how hundreds of millions of black people all over the world could become “less black.” The  absurdity of regarding all white people, hundreds of millions of them, as having a general set of characteristics, let alone having those characteristics be detrimental to society, is the grand facade of the ages.

How long will “woke” organizations maintain this illusion? Have they been coerced to the point where they’re afraid to say, “This is ridiculous, and needs to stop now”? [Actually, they have been coerced.] Will decades pass before we see the end of this malarkey?

I do not apologize for being a white person, just as no person of color has to apologize for their ethnic background, skin color, race, or religion. If you’re a good citizen who respects the rights of others, that, my friend, is sufficient.

Morgan Freeman, who played God in the movie Bruce Almighty, wishes we would do away with Black History month and merely have history. Freeman also wants us to stop regarding individuals as black and white and simply let people be people. Amen to that.
