The Mental Malfunction of Leftism

Oh those Leftists, they love words like solidarity. They love to throw their full support behind movements and causes for “justice” and “equality. They love, in short to dive headlong into hashtags, and causes without knowing any facts whatsoever. The Left does not value truth, facts are generally inconvenient to them so they are dismissed. Even when a cause is discredited or a narrative totally destroyed, they hold on to their talking pints like a stubborn child. 

Take, for example, the causes of the moment in America Police shooting Black men. Rather than taking these shootings case by case, and evaluating evidence as it comes to light, Leftists react immediately, and cling to their talking points. Talking points usually crafted by propagandists and opportunists to cash in personally. For example, take the shooting of Erick Scott in Charlotte North Carolina. No one can say for certain what happened, no one can say the shooting was justified or not justified. An investigation must be done. Witnesses must be interviewed, video evidence must be examined, and forensic evidence must be weighed. After the investigation is complete then, and only then will we all know for certain. But, that is not what the Left does. They immediately launch into protest/outrage/social justice mode. They know everything they need to know. A Black man was shot by police in America so it must be police brutality, cold blooded murder, and of course, RAAAACISM! 

And if the evidence supports the case that this shooting was justified? The same Leftists will turn their blind eyes to such facts. Again, facts are not welcome, critical thinking? Bah! Waiting for evidence? The don’t need no stinkin’ evidence! Just ask the students at NC State

NC State totally stands in solidarity with things they really do not know about

Would that be in solidarity for those who protested peaceably, or those who looted stores, broke windows, damaged cars, assaulted people, tried to throw a reporter in a burning trash can, etc?

(WTVD) Students at NC State joined the growing protest movement over the police shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott, in Charlotte.

About 300 students staged a die-in at the student union on Friday evening.

It began with a gathering on Wolf Plaza. Demonstrators arrived wearing all black. Then, in unity with the demonstrators in Charlotte, they marched in to the student union and played dead. The die-in serving as a symbolic protest over what they see as the latest case of police brutality.

Scott was told to drop the gun or some variation at least 12 times. His wife kept repeating “Keith don’t do it.”

Again, it is all drama folks. Being outraged, offended, aggrieved, and most of all being a victim is now the highest achievement a Leftist can obtain. 

Liberals say the darndest things

Trevor Noah, the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, and a member of the Cult of Gun Control made a very strong argument against gun free zones recently. Sean Davis at The Federalist catches the priceless moment when a Liberal speaks some real truth without ever realizing it

Trevor Noah, the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, accidentally destroyed the case for gun control during his show on Wednesday night.

Noah’s accidental broadside against gun-free zones came during a portion of his opening monologue in which he made fun of a Minnesota man fed up with Islamic terrorism. The target of Noah’s ire was an ice cream shop owner in a small town southeast of St. Cloud, Minnesota — the site of a mass stabbing at a mall last weekend — who put up a sign outside of his restaurant that read, “Muslims Get Out.”

Noah mocked the store owner for a little bit, but then he moved on to the meat of his opening bitby mocking the man’s rationale for his “Muslims Get Out” sign:

You know what’s also strange is this man genuinely thought people who go around blowing people up would be stopped by a sign? You realize you’re talking to terrorists, not vampires. They don’t need to be invited in, alright? Or maybe he’s onto something, because if you think about it, we’ve never tried that. We’ve never actually tried to repel terrorists with signs. Yeah, maybe that’s all the airports need is a sign that says “No Terrorists,” yes? Yeah, and then guys are going to be walking going, “Oh, I was going to blow up the airport, but the rules are rules and they said I can’t come in. They said I can’t. They said I can’t come in.”

Great points. Signs do not, in fact stop evil people. Yet, Noah supports gun control laws that, well are full of equally useless measures like signs reading “gun free zone”. Hopefully Noah will stop and think about his own words. OK that is sadly doubtful, people of the Left, as Noah is, react emotionally not thoughtfully. Deeper meanings or lessons escape them. Wisdom? Not for them. Sean Davis makes this final point that will no doubt escape Trevor Noah. The entire premise of gun control is based on words, on paper preventing bad people from committing bad acts

The entire premise of gun control is that words on a piece of paper somewhere will prevent a terrorist from killing people. What is a law if not a sign that says what you’re allowed and not allowed to do? Yet time and time and time and time again, strict gun control regimes have completely failed to prevent mass murderers from committing mass murder. Chicago and Washington, D.C., have some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, yet those laws have done little to stem the tide of gun crime in those cities.

Exactly!

Senator Cruz endorses Trump

Of course he did. As I have said, I will vote for Trump as well, as will many other Conservatives like Dennis Prager among others. The fact is Hillary is as unacceptable a candidate as we have ever had. No one is more diametrically opposed o our Constitution than Hillary Clinton.  I believe in principles, which is why I supported Cruz. Face it without principles, we are finished as a nation. But, at some points in life, pragmatism is the only choice left. This is such a time for me. Here is what Senator Cruz said about his decision

Via Facebook:

This election is unlike any other in our nation’s history. Like many other voters, I have struggled to determine the right course of action in this general election.

In Cleveland, I urged voters, “please, don’t stay home in November. Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket whom you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”

After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.

I’ve made this decision for two reasons. First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word.

Second, even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable — that’s why I have always been #NeverHillary.

Six key policy differences inform my decision. 

 

First, and most important, the Supreme Court. For anyone concerned about the Bill of Rights — free speech, religious liberty, the Second Amendment — the Court hangs in the balance. I have spent my professional career fighting before the Court to defend the Constitution. We are only one justice away from losing our most basic rights, and the next president will appoint as many as four new justices. We know, without a doubt, that every Clinton appointee would be a left-wing ideologue. Trump, in contrast, has promised to appoint justices “in the mold of Scalia.”

For some time, I have been seeking greater specificity on this issue, and today the Trump campaign provided that, releasing a very strong list of potential Supreme Court nominees — including Sen. Mike Lee, who would make an extraordinary justice — and making an explicit commitment to nominate only from that list. This commitment matters, and it provides a serious reason for voters to choose to support Trump.

Second, Obamacare. The failed healthcare law is hurting millions of Americans. If Republicans hold Congress, leadership has committed to passing legislation repealing Obamacare. Clinton, we know beyond a shadow of doubt, would veto that legislation. Trump has said he would sign it.

Third, energy. Clinton would continue the Obama administration’s war on coal and relentless efforts to crush the oil and gas industry. Trump has said he will reduce regulations and allow the blossoming American energy renaissance to create millions of new high-paying jobs.

Fourth, immigration. Clinton would continue and even expand President Obama’s lawless executive amnesty. Trump has promised that he would revoke those illegal executive orders.

Fifth, national security. Clinton would continue the Obama administration’s willful blindness to radical Islamic terrorism. She would continue importing Middle Eastern refugees whom the FBI cannot vet to make sure they are not terrorists. Trump has promised to stop the deluge of unvetted refugees.

Sixth, Internet freedom. Clinton supports Obama’s plan to hand over control of the Internet to an international community of stakeholders, including Russia, China, and Iran. Just this week, Trump came out strongly against that plan, and in support of free speech online.

These are six vital issues where the candidates’ positions present a clear choice for the American people.

If Clinton wins, we know — with 100% certainty — that she would deliver on her left-wing promises, with devastating results for our country.

My conscience tells me I must do whatever I can to stop that.

We also have seen, over the past few weeks and months, a Trump campaign focusing more and more on freedom — including emphasizing school choice and the power of economic growth to lift African-Americans and Hispanics to prosperity.

Finally, after eight years of a lawless Obama administration, targeting and persecuting those disfavored by the administration, fidelity to the rule of law has never been more important.

The Supreme Court will be critical in preserving the rule of law. And, if the next administration fails to honor the Constitution and Bill of Rights, then I hope that Republicans and Democrats will stand united in protecting our fundamental liberties.

Our country is in crisis. Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way.

A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honoring that commitment. And if you don’t want to see a Hillary Clinton presidency, I encourage you to vote for him.
