How do you make a monster? You twist their mind and heart with hate and anger. You politicize everything in terms that inflame damaged people with weak minds. You fill their heads with psychobabble that reinforces their ill-formed and ignorant notions about the nature of the world. You create an echo chamber of approving and nudging rhetoric that repeats each and every day. You convince and reassure them that their neurosis is morally right and good, and that those who oppose them must be stopped by any means necessary. Next you identify those that are to be the enemy as sub-human, and relate them to familiar boogeymen like Nazis and race supremacists. All that’s left to do is start ratcheting up the rage and hate with ever-increasing ferocity. Now you’ve created a tool for morally justified violence.
I’ve seen and read a lot of things since the election that occurred almost a year ago (yes it’s been that long) that meet the criteria I just outlined. I’ve seen a lot of people become completely unhinged by the insidious propaganda of the progressive left. A literal army of ignorant zombies intent on violence, assured of their moral superiority, and without a compass to guide them. I bet you’ve seen and heard them too, as they are everywhere. They put things on Facebook and Twitter calling people bigots, racists, etc. They wear p*ssy hats and put on American flag hijabs. They mock Christianity while apologizing for Islam. They kneel during the National Anthem. They hate people with abject racism, but they cover it with language like “white privilege” and “intersectionality”, and justify it with concepts like “systematic racism”.
The most frustrating thing about these people is that they know nothing. They literally know nothing. They lecture and sermonize about what our government should be doing, when they don’t even know what our government is. If you need a demonstration of this assertion, just ask them ( or yourself if you’re a social justice warrior/ person with stunted emotional and intellectual development ) :
What are the three branches of Government?
Can you name 2 of the rights guaranteed in the First Amendment?
Does the Constitution, and in turn the government, give you your rights?
Why do we have an electoral college?
How does making and passing a law happen, and who are your representatives in Congress?
If you can’t answer these questions, you might just be talking out of your backside when you talk politics. It certainly seems that the ability to rationally and critically think has disappeared……especially among the most recent products of the University System. If the hateful rhetoric and actions of the progressive left, and in turn the politicization of every aspect of our lives doesn’t stop, we are headed for trouble. Historically speaking it’s the kind of trouble that leaves millions of lives destroyed. When you have people calling for systems of government like Socialism and Communism – that together killed over 80 million people in the 20th century alone – while tearing down the concepts of Individual Liberty, Capitalism and Meritocracy – that have elevated more people than anything else in the history of the world – you have a serious problem indeed.
There are people, posers in positions of power within media and government, who have created an army of monsters because they lost an election, and now it has grown out of control. Was the Vegas shooter one of these monsters, like the Virginia shooter? I’ll make the prediction here, and I’d bet dollars to donuts on it…….I think he was. I think he was radicalized by the Media and the Left, and was so absorbed by his hate that he took action. And sadly, instead of stepping back and doing some self examination……..instead of contemplating the results of this shameless and shallow politicization of society in exchange for power and control…….they are stepping over bodies to get in front of the cameras. Because it’s not their fault……….it’s yours for rejecting them. Besides, they have more monsters to make.
