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. 

Sally Kohn earns herself a place in the Marxist Moron Hall of Shame

It takes a special kind of stupid, yes, I know stupid is a harsh word, but in this case it applies, to be Sally Kohn, who truly believes that silencing certain opinions is somehow diversity!

At a University of Missouri free speech symposium, CNN commentator Sally Kohn said conservatives fighting for free speech on college campuses are afraid of multiculturalism.

Kohn added that because conservatives can no longer criticize multiculturalism while remaining socially acceptable, they have taken on the campus speech fight because it is a way to “attack diverse principles.”

When Kirsten Powers countered Kohn with reason, and facts, Kohn went full blown propagandist

Powers countered by citing examples of liberal bias on college campuses, such as the uproar that is often encountered by both liberal and conservative students who diverge from the liberal orthodoxy, and specifically mentioned Christina Hoff Sommers, an American Enterprise Institute scholar whosespeech at Oberlin College was disrupted by numerous protesters, some of whom set up a makeshift “safe space.”

Powers also cited the case of a feminist professor at the University of California-Santa Barbara attacking a pro-life demonstrator because she felt threatened by the display, as well as that of a libertarian Muslim student at the University of Michigan whose satirical newspaper article led to demands for his firing because people felt “unsafe.”

Kohn retorted that both her and Powers’ white, upper-middle-class upbringings cloud their vision on the issue, claiming that speech that may not be threatening to them may nonetheless be threatening to someone else.

“Feelings are valid,” she mused. “I’m never going to argue with people’s feelings.”

Unless it is a Conservative’s feelings of course. Powers tried to use reason again, and again, Kohn let her true Statist show

Powers next spoke of the chilling effect that occurs when unpopular viewpoints are silent, arguing that people do not learn when everybody is like them.

Kohn, however, believes this is largely a good thing, especially in the case of conservatives who do not hold progressive social views, saying, “If they feel like they can no longer speak against positive social change, good.”

Well, there we are folks. Kohn is so worried about “feelings” except those that she disagrees with

Once again, Powers insisted that diversity of thought and diversity of ideas are just as important as any other type of diversity, but Kohn refused to concede the point, arguing that some ideas are less deserving of protection than others.

“They think [diversity] is dumbing down humanity, or the greatness and exceptionalism of America,” Kohn said. “I’m happy that’s under assault.”

Ah, yes, drink in that diversity and tolerance folks. the fact is Kohn advocates for forced silence of diverse views. She envisions herself as educated, and smart, yet she is so foolish as to not be able to grasp that she pushes for a climate that crushed liberty and squashes diversity.

Special Sunflower Stricken with Offendeditis over Trump Hat

Awww she is offended by a hat, free speech is too tough for her. Note that the girl in this video is seriously uninformed, and highly bigoted and thinks nothing of trying to punish a fellow student for simply expressing views she disagrees with. This is what Liberalism, which once was how Jefferson Madison, and other founders were properly called, has degenerated into. This buffoon actually represents the things she thinks she fears

Noted Gun Control Cultists do what they do best, lie

Gabby Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly are still trying to milk their gun control crusade for all the publicity it is worth. They recently put on their shocked faces and blasted Donald Trump for demanding that Hillary Clinton ask her body guards to disarm since she is so anti-gun

Former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband Mark Kelly lashed out at Donald Trump on Friday for saying that Hillary Clinton’s bodyguards should be “disarmed.”

“Tonight we have even more evidence of just how dangerously unfit Donald Trump is to be president of this great country,” Giffords and Kelly, both Clinton supporters, said in a statement.

“He is reckless, irresponsible and unworthy of the office he seeks

To be clear, Trump has suggested, and I believe rightfully so, that Hillary Clinton would do everything she could to erase the right to keep and bear arms. His suggestion at his rally was that if Hillary is so vehemently anti-gun, then she should ask her security to disarm. In other words, Trump was asking for consistency from Clinton. Imagine that! Consistency from a Leftist? Never gonna happen. Leftism is an ideology of inconsistency, consistency being highly inconvenient to the Left. 

The Cult of Gun Control, of which Giffords and Kelly are prominent members, lie on a regular  basis about guns, “gun violence”, and self-defense with guns. The fact is that over the last quarter century, Americans have been buying firearms. Millions of Americans carry firearms for self-defense, and during this time, violent crime, homicides, homicide by firearms, and accidental gun deaths have all steadily decreased. These facts are not up for debate. Yet the Giffords, Kellys and Clintons of the world berate us with lies about the number of mass shootings, which they grossly over inflate, and the dangers of “assault rifles” “high-capacity magazines”, and “weapons of war”. The media, of course, exploits any mass shooting, and ignores the hundreds of thousands of times Americans use firearms in self-defense every year.

It is not that they do not know the truth, they do. It is that they believe lying to get their ends, is OK.  Again, the Left does not value truth. The Cult of Gun Control, is most decidedly of the Left, so telling lies, or manufacturing false statistics to panic uniformed Americans is perfectly OK with Michael Bloomberg and Moms Demand Action mouthpieces like Shannon Watts. So, I would say bravo to Trump for actually demanding Clinton put her money where her mouth is. Hillary Clinton is guarded by armed men and women, and she should be. Nothing wrong with security. I would find no issue with Hillary herself packing heat for her own protection. But she should stop demanding steps that would make it harder for Americans to own or carry firearms for their own security. Until she does that, then she is simply another gun control hypocrite. A hypocrite who recognizes the importance of armed protection yet seeks to deny it for average Americans.

Angela Rye, a case study in Racial Obsession Syndrome

First the story

Appearing as a guest on Tuesday’s CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, liberal CNN political commentator Angela Rye hyperbolically asserted that Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan reminds her of slavery and the days when black Americans were assaulted with dogs and water hoses.

Even though the Republican presidential candidate has stated that the 1980s is an era that he believes America was “great,” and has focused on jobs lost by what he believes are unfair trade deals as factors in America not being as “great” as in the past, the CNN commentator linked his slogan to the days of extreme racism against the black population: “I also think when you start your campaign with a slogan like ‘Make America Great Again,’ when some of us hear shackles in our minds or we hear dogs and see fire hoses, that’s not an era we want to go back to.”

Now, Rye’s response, no matter how idiotic, should be no surprise. After all, anyone who has ever listened to her understands she would find something racist in ordering a hot dog at a baseball game. For Angela Rye, and people like her everything involves race, everything. Thus my term Racial Obsession Syndrome. If she hears something she disagrees with, RAAAAACISM! If a police officer shoots an armed Black criminal, RAAAAACISM! If someone says that the absence of fathers in inner city communities is a massive cause of the disproportionate rate of Black crime, RAAAAACISM! America, itself? RAAAAACIST!

This comes as a sad result of two things. First is the growth of racial grievance mongering as a source of income. The monetary success of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and other race pimps has led many others, from politicians like the member of the Congressional Black caucus, to news commentators like Rye, to columnists like Charles Blow to go full race baiting all the time. It has also led some newcomers like Shaun King and Deray McKesson to emulate these race baiters. Racism sells well and the media, is all too happy to help carry the often false narrative of racist police, racist America, racist Republicans, racist everything.

The other factor in the growth of Racial Obsession Syndrome is identity politics. The Left is responsible for the brainwashing and embittering of Black Americans. Through education, which teaches that America is a hotbed of racism and bigotry, and through the media which again re-enforces this largely false narrative. The fact is many Black kids grow up hearing, from parents, “community” leaders, the media, and of course self-serving politicians that anything and everything in their life is centered on their skin color. Blacks are told they must vote a certain, way, and support certain issues or they are “traitors” “Uncle Toms” or “not really Black”. 

Of course there is nothing more racist than pigeon holing people based solely on their skin color, but the Left wants power, and they get it by dividing Americans. They do it by convincing s many people as possible that they are completely defined by their “identity” be it race, gender, their income, sexual orientation, or their religion. Once the Left has labelled everyone, then they continue the indoctrination by telling these groups they are victims, and their only hope to overcome discrimination is to vote for Leftist candidates. The focus is to segregate groups by “identity”, then to “victimize” them, and of course to release any member of any victim group of any responsibility for any choices they make or actions they take. After all, these are victims, and everything that goes wrong for them is because of America, and bigotry, and Conservatives.

All of these factors have made race relations worse, not better, and it will continue to be this way as long as the narrative of victimhood can continue unchallenged. This is why anyone who dares to push back against this narrative is savaged as racist/Homophobic/anti-women/anti-immigrant/Islamophobic, etc. Taking on the Left is dangerous because the Left does not value the truth. They value winning, and yes, by any means necessary. To the Left destroying someone’s career, or reputation by falsely calling them a racist is not morally objectionable in any way. This is why we see so many college students fighting to not allow Conservative speakers on campus, or the formation of clubs that deviate from the Leftist narrative. Free speech, open dialogues, and debate?, No, they are not allowed. You either agree and march in lock step with the Left or you will be intimidated into silence, or see your good name ruined.

Naturally, this is why we will see, should Hillary Clinton win in November renewed assaults on speech that dares challenge the Left’s lies. The Fairness Doctrine, and renewed calls for the FCC, and FEC to clamp down on blogs will be on top of the Left’s agenda. After all, free speech gets in the way of the re-education of America, and that cannot be allowed to happen if we are to build a Collectivist Utopia now can it?
