Leftism in 74 words.

Leftism is an insidious, cancerous mind-warp that seeks to subvert the body politic into its own image while destabilizing and deconstructing any belief system seen as a threat. Lies and disinformation are its stock in trade, as are intimidation and threats of violence. Leftism has not only invaded the political sphere, in many cases it has also inflicted itself upon the workplace, where it strives for control and the power to manipulate the workforce.

Iron Legion: We Do Not Debate the left.

KG said...

At Crusader Rabbit, we support the Legion and we long ago stopped debating the left. Why give them a platform to spew their hate and nonsense?

Col. B. Bunny said...

It's amazing how with the left it follows as the night the day that we'll see ax handles, pavement stones, ambushes, hysteria, unreason, and, eventually, reeducation camps and firing squads.

Truth is irrelevant to them. Sophistry and intimidation are their prime directive.

I despise all leftists and their dumb and dirt enablers including a multitude of friends and family members. However, I neatly compartmentalize their leftist persona from their friendship and kinship relations. Otherwise I would be a hermit.

When I was a naive kid at the University of California at Berkeley in 1968, I watched the leftists march with their black banners with black fists and I read their yelling mimeographed flyers. I didn't have much understanding of the "way of the world."

Again, I was pretty naive.

But what they were saying? It was invective and didn't make any objective sense to me, so I dismissed them, even as they seemed to get a lot of followers who were no more politically savvy than I was.

And there was a black movement, too. Indeed, at the time, the black marchers made more noise on campus, day to day than the anti-war protesters did.

The thing is, all this got its start with Mario Savio's "free speech movement" 3 years before. Blacks had never been discriminated against at Berkeley. The campus had nothing to do with the Viet Nam war or a class war.

The truth is, the campus was a place where impressionable middle-class kids were away from home for the first time and media (even then) would pay attention if 15 people would "occupy" a classroom and the authorities were too chickensh*t to go in and kick them out and suspend them for disrupting classes and/or breaking the law.

17, 18 and 19 year olds in America are CHILDREN. They (mostly) haven't had to work, sweat or think much about the blessings bequeathed to them or what the alternatives are. This was true 50 years ago and it's even more true now.

I've seen - and been in the middle of - the mob yelling, "On strike! Shut it down!" or "Hey hey, ho ho, ____ has got to go!" My experience is that the majority of the yellers are know-nothing, pampered children who will spend that evening drinking and partying and they are lead by a cadre of equally misinformed but militant leftists who are prepared to start a fight because they'd rather fight and get media attention than man up and get a job and raise a family.

I am all-in with the idea of "question authority." But I now believe the angry leftist children showing up at every march, the Bilderberg group, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Frankfurt School, the United Nations and one-worlders do not have the best interests of individuals at heart.

They want to control and manage the future of humanity because they think they know best. And they will use - and HAVE used - any means of coercion, manipulation, financial ploys, media shaming or violence to achieve their goals.

I realize how paranoid that sounds. But I cannot believe that so many would operate against their own best interests as free human beings and parents to their children. And I've watched MSNBC, Europe, our own political class and "demonstrators" for many, many years.

We live in an era of unparalleled freedom, plenty and knowledge. Yet we are bombarded as never before with voices of hate, division, disparagement of history and race/class/inequality - even as race, class and inequality have never in history been as meaningless as they are now.

Is it a natural progression of humans to be this way? Are there hidden forces at work? I don't really know. But I feel a growing affinity to those "good old boys" and the others that the mainstream demonizes who say, "Hell no."

Col. B. Bunny said...

Andy, that's my own situation though my patience has worn thin. The differences I have with the left are not academic and if my views were to sweep the country the country would not be destroyed. That is not the case with leftist views. It's ever clearer in my mind and I just can't stomach the reality of all that they stand for.

The people who are worth dealing with are the people in the middle. Why they are in the middle astonishes me, like people in S.C. today who say they are "undecided." Really? You really haven't thought this through enough to have a strong opinion now? Why not just come right out and tell me you are utterly clueless?

Col. B. Bunny said...

That's an excellent comment, Tim. Shelby Steele made somewhat the same observation when he said he met with the college president where he was in school and the man treated him with deference when he should have kicked the "occupiers" out of whatever they were "occupying." A smidgen of resistance would have solved a lot of problems. Just having the cops clear students out of university offices and telling the students to take their views to the quadrangle and not bother non-participants would have affirmed about 5 major principles of Western life. But no....

I do think there are hidden forces. Rose L. Martin did yeoman's work in keeping lists of members of the Fabian Society. The Fabians were very appealing to a lot of otherwise smart people but they were part of a large slice of Western people who bought into the idea that the West was and is corrupt and evil and oppressive. I just don't think that subversive thinking is what previous people had to put up with in centuries past. The occasional malcontent was not unusual and treason was something rulers were very sensitive about, but never was there such an army of people found in the West who were so adamant about fouling their own nest. They were never called to account and they're still out there.

There are indeed hidden forces, although much of it isn't hidden, per se, but simply ignored, not spoken of. G. Edward Griffin wrote a series of essays delineating the role of the Fabians, the CFR, the Ford Foundation, the Carnegie Endowment Fund, etc. You may have read them: The Future Is Calling (http://www.theendrun.com/the-future-is-calling) It should be required reading in high school, but definitely for anyone who wants to understand how we got to where we currently find ourselves.

Col. B. Bunny said...

Thanks for that link, Reg. I looked at that site and the articles look interesting. I am coming to believe that there are indeed hidden forces at work. Some people at Gates of Vienna have done good work in trying to explain how the "migrants" to Europe can afford $11,000 rubber boats and arrive flashing 500 Euro bank notes. The role of Turkey in Syria is gradually coming to light. The reasons for the pretend U.S. war on ISIS are coming out. Saudi Arabia has for decades played a huge role in American politics, as have Israel, Japan, China, and Russia. I think Diana West has done an outstanding job to show how Stalin's agents in the American government were able to influence American policy.

Sutton did much original work in exposing the extent to which U.S. money flowed to the Bolsheviks and the Nazis.

Immigration (non-)policy in the U.S. and Europe seems to be influenced by a gigantic gravitational anomaly between Jupiter and Uranus.

The official version of most matters is pure Hollywood. I may sound like I'm into conspiracies. I most certainly am not and I sure as heck don't believe that 9/11 was an inside job or a false flag event. The point is that after a while the official version just doesn't hang together than convincingly.

Say again why we are involved in five wars around the globe just now....
