When I started writing this column a few years ago, I had an earnest hope that with logic and wit I could open the eyes and minds of the most ignorant among us. The problem I have discovered is that those I have been attempting to engage have neither logic nor wit. It’s infuriating, really. Oddly, my anger and frustration at Progs that I don’t personally know is turning into a kind of pitied sadness and boredom……..while my pity and tolerance for the Progressives I DO personally know is turning into angry frustration and apathy.
Well, I’m tired of giving to Lefties what they are incapable of giving to anyone else, namely a polite benefit-of-the-doubt…….and you should be too. I think maybe it’s best, in all honesty. Why have the demonstrably stupid philosophies of the college campus, the corporate “diversity” industry, and millennial groupthink infected every aspect of our society and discourse? I’ll tell you why……….because lefty progressives are shameless and loud in their stupidity. They are not quiet, respectful, and looking to debate their ideas on level ground. They actually believe they have the “right” to be as intolerant, ignorant, racist, and violent as they can be……because of all the “injustice” they have been brainwashed into thinking exists.
The defense of these under-developed and damaged people is that words and ideas they don’t agree with, or find offensive, are equal to violence and intolerance, and violence and intolerance require actions of elevated violence and intolerance as a response. See how that works? Kind of like saying, “punch a Nazi”, and then labeling everyone you don’t agree with as a “Nazi” and proceeding to punch them. Voila! Social Justice in action! If they say something that is offensive, rude, stupid, and not backed up by history and logic…….it’s ok because they (in their depression-med/ADHD-med shriveled brains) hold the moral high ground. Yet if you happen to mildly offend one of these creatures, a public apology and prostrate position are required.
Even asking a question of one of these folks, or asking for details on one of their ridiculous positions sends them into a rage of stuttering, flop-sweated retorts of “racist!”, “bully!”, or the worst thing they can think of to say……”privileged white man!”. The problem is that I do have questions for the Progressives and I can’t get them answered. Questions like:
If you hate corporations and find them to be the root of all evil, why are you in total, mindless support of the three biggest, monopolistic corporate entities on the planet…………namely Apple, Facebook, and the United States Bureaucratic Government? All three of these evil corporations are the epitome of control-without-competition and greed……..yet what is in your pocket, what is your homepage, and who is it you are wanting to control every aspect of your – and in turn everyone else’s – life?
If you are against racism, whether individual or systematic, how can you possibly embrace concepts like “affirmative-action”, “white privilege”, “black lives matter”, “diversity”, and “unconscious bias”? Have you heard of the concept of “two wrongs don’t make a right”? Are you aware of the hypocrisy of lumping all white people into a group that all thinks the same, votes the same, wants the same, and all have been a wrongful beneficiary of an unconscious racism whether they know it or not? How do you justify attempting to enforce your racism and prejudice by claiming it is a response to existing racism and prejudice?
If you are horrified and moved to action to remove the right to keep and bear arms because of horrible things like the Vegas Massacre……….where is your outrage at inner-city violence and murder committed by criminals with guns – illegal guns – on a daily/weekly/monthly basis in places like Chicago? Can you explain how removing the weapons from law-abiding citizens would stop these awful events? Can you see the danger in only allowing the Government to possess weapons? Are you aware that when you cite countries like Australia for gun control, they have a population of 22 million people – not almost 400 million like the United States? Do you know that giving me “gun violence statistics” from places like Australia without adjusting for population is ignorant? Do you know that out of the around 32,000 gun deaths in the U.S. every year, roughly 22,000 are suicides – about 1000 more are accidental – and the leftovers are the real number?
I honestly think the dissolution of our society is real, rapid, and perhaps not reversible. I know that it is if those that don’t agree with the Progressive Lunacy remain quiet and tolerant. Sane people are losing the cultural war, big time. The reason is simple……the left is united in its suicidal quest to tear down everything “America” because they hate it……and they hate it because they have been taught to by mindless morons in public education. Instead of knowing that this country is the greatest experiment in human liberty and freedom, some are intent on an all-or-nothing focus on it’s imperfections…….when nothing and no one can survive that kind of viewpoint. I truly wish that more people would understand their own history, heritage, and culture instead of burning it down in the name of their perceived grievance. I also wish that the lefties I know, whom are either wealthy and connected (though all the wealthy people I know like to delude themselves that they are “middle class”) or brainwashed and lower-income – would ask themselves whose pawns they are and why…….and just what it is they plan on replacing our society with after they have destroyed it. Enforced Government equality – at the point of a gun by the way, or did you not know that’s where Government power comes from? – of thought, results, gender, sex, perception, ideas, possessions, wealth, and status………or else. A nightmare Land of The Lost.
