Gotta say, the left is simply getting worse, and worse, nastier, and nastier it seems.
Here is a brilliant piece by Daniel Greenfield on the left and civility. Once again, the left is redefining meanings of words.
“When you attack a Black woman for speaking out about injustice, and when you call for ‘civility’ in the face of blatant racism, you invoke a long history of white supremacist power.”
So reads a letter in defense of the call by Rep. Maxine Waters to harass Trump administration officials.
“The concept of respect is culturally mediated; there is no single, objective standard,” it concludes.
There are clear objective standards. They include not harassing the people you disagree with in their private lives. The only people who think that standard is “culturally mediated” are leftist thugs.
But standards, when applied fairly and evenly are now somehow RAAAAACIST. But of course, they are. This is what the left does to mask their lies and justify their true aims
A New York Times op-ed declares that civility is the “misguided obsession” of “white America.” According to a CNN analysis, not being harassed while you’re having dinner is a form of “privilege”.
“Civility is a tool of white supremacy,” a Samantha Bee writer tweeted.
According to Simran Jeet Singh, a Henry R. Luce Post-Doctoral Fellow at NYU’s Center for Religion and Media, civility is a “power play by those who feel that white supremacy is under threat.”
See you racistly racist right winger! You are bad if you call for civility because, WHITE PRIVILEGE!
If civility and manners are racist, then rudeness must be the new civil rights movement. But no amount of citing Martin Luther King in defense of harassing Trump staffers having dinner will change his speech to, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day be rude, obnoxious and entitled snowflakes.”
How odd that the left, which lionizes King has completely bastardized and perverted his words. Please go read the rest
And by resatrint and non-partisanship, I mean hateful, baseless rhetoric because a demagogue gonna demagogue!
Cultural Marxism is useful only for its intended purpose, which is to destroy an existing society. It cannot be used to construct a new society, any more than a wrecking ball can be used to build a house. Last weekend’s London Pride Parade demonstrates why:
“A group of eight women stormed the parade route,” reported Gay Star News, and unfurled banners reading “Transactivism erases lesbians,” and “Lesbian = Female Homosexual.”
Local media reported that the protesters stalled the parade for around ten minutes, and as they were carted off, one could be heard screaming that, “A man who says he’s a lesbian is a rapist” — an apparent reference to male-to-female transgender individuals.
Many lesbians don’t like transgenders pretending to be female because they are men.
Other activists from groups calling themselves Get The L Out, Object, Mayday 4 Women, Critical Sisters and Lesbian Rights Alliance, handed out pamphlets along the parade route, also claiming that the Pride event’s expanding scope left lesbians marginalized and coerced into believing their sexual preferences were abhorrent. One flier read, “The trans movement is … coercing lesbians to have sex with men. We firmly condemn this vicious form of anti-lesbianism disguised as progress.”
The closer the cultural Marxist rainbow alliance of outliers and malcontents comes to overthrowing the core population and achieving real power, the more certain it is that those comprising it will be at each other’s throats. Under the depraved and pernicious ideology that liberalism has degenerated into, people are not bound together by blood, soil, or even principles, but merely by the identity group they choose to identify with. Spoils are to be divided according to where these identity groups rank in the Hierarchy of Victimhood. Competition will be fierce.
Again, Leftism destroys everything it touches, everything
You just have to laugh at insanity like this
Hundreds of students, faculty, and alumni are “ashamed” that Yale Law School congratulated Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a 1990 alumnus, on his nomination to the Supreme Court.
An open letter to YLS administrators, which had garnered more than 300 signatures by press time, vociferously objects to a press release issued by the law school boasting of Kavanaugh’s accomplishment, asking, “Is there nothing more important to Yale Law School than its proximity to power and prestige?”
Then, it gets really crazy
The letter only becomes more strident as it goes along, saying that Kavanaugh’s nomination “presents an emergency—for democratic life, for our safety and freedom, [and] for the future of the country.” Indeed, the letter even goes so far as to declare that Kavanaugh “is a threat to many of us, despite the privilege bestowed by our education, simply because of who we are.”
It then proceeds to outline aspects of Kavanaugh’s judicial philosophy with which the signatories do not agree, including his opinions related to abortion rights, the Affordable Care Act, and deference to the executive branch, among others.
Notably, the letter actually asserts that overturning Roe v. Wade, which President Trump has repeatedly stressed as a goal when discussing Supreme Court nominations, “would endanger the lives of countless people who need or may need abortions.”
The signatories also object to Kavanaugh’s 2015 dissent in a case involving the ACA’s contraceptive mandate, saying his argument that forcing religious organizations to provide birth control coverage gives them “grave concern that he will consistently prioritize the beliefs of third-parties over the rights of the oppressed.”
Wow, this is the result of teaching students never to think, analyze, or research anything. Rather, they are taught to emote, rant, rave, etc. Knowledge? Bah, the left has narratives. You see more and more evidence of how the left has turned our
education system into anindoctrination system every day it seems.
Vox Media co-founder Joshua Topolsky tweeted Sunday that conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro was “the Jew that helps other Jews onto the train,” a Holocaust reference.
Nice work, really. Nice bit of tolerance there
We must understand that there really is no place of compromise with the far left in America. The left is evil, and there is no way around that truth either. The left has their own rules, Mike McDaniel offers up some wise words about these “new rules”
In 2015, the indispensable Kurt Schlichter wrote:
Today in America, a despised minority that is really no minority is the target of an establishment that considers this minority unworthy of respect, unworthy of rights, and unworthy of having a say in the direction of this country. It’s an establishment that has one law for itself, and another for its enemies. It’s an establishment that inflicts an ever-increasing series of petty humiliations on its opponents and considers this all hilarious.
That’s a recipe for disaster. You cannot expect to change the status quo for yourself and then expect those you victimize not to play by the new rules you have created. You cannot expect to be able to discard the rule of law in favor of the rule of force and have those you target not respond in kind.
This was during the final years of the Age of Obama,a golden progressive age Democrats thought would never end–could never end–so progressives doubled down on Marxism and put all their chips on a spin of the political roulette wheel for Hillary Clinton (to save you the trouble, gentle readers, I’ve already called the metaphor police and reported myself). Progressivism was our inevitable, preordained destiny, the bending of the arc of history toward social justice. Hillary could not lose,and when she was proclaimed the new progressive messiah, the long march toward Marxism and all its glories would be unstoppable.
Ah yes, Trump won, Hillary, the Neo-Marxist savior who was going to continue the work of Obama lost, and these events happened because enough Americans said ENOUGH! The Left has since lost it. And now………….
The minority about which Schlicter was speaking were normal Americans, republicans, conservatives, anyone that had not quaffed the entire bathtub of progressive Kool-aid. Then as now, the members of that deplorable flyover country minority were evil, sexist, racist, haters, Nazis, Hitlers, people who want everyone to have fully semiautomatic assault weapons with gigantic capacity magazines to kill children, when they aren’t ripping them from the arms of their parents and locking them in cages. Oh, and they’re all God clingers too, every one, and worst of all, they won’t bake cakes for gay couples and expect trans people, or whatever they consider themselves these days, to pee in restrooms reflecting the gender into which they were born. Those deplorable are peeists too!
Now fully in the grip of Trump Derangement Syndrome, progressives find deplorables devoid of humanity, lower than beasts. Because Trump is the embodiment of evil, everyone in any way associated with him, even by casting a vote for him, is also evil, and must be suppressed. There are no longer any social conventions, no basic decency, no kindergarten level politeness owed them. They may be abused, insulted and beaten. Their property may be destroyed. They and their families may be pursued to their homes and harassed at will. They are evil, and the self-righteous must give evil no quarter.
Go read it all folks. McDaniel, Schlicther, and others can see a very ugly scenario developing. We see where the targeted harassment and threatening behavior can lead. And, sadly, I fear this is where the left wishes it to lead. To violence. They push, they threaten, they surround people and their families, they push harder, they will target people’s homes and eventually, someone will be forced to use force out of fear for their life and the lives of their families. The left, of course will play the innocent victims who were just “protesting peacefully” and attempt to use such events to push for more gun laws to strip away self-defense rights, and so on, and so on.
