Some Promising Signs of Leftism’s Decline

People are starting to get fed up and voting with their feet and wallets.

Far-left Evergreen State University is imploding. Applications are way down.

Far-left controlled cities and states are suffering from out-migration.

Leftism Deserves Most of The Blame For School Shootings

Cultural rot and misguided Obama policies are largely to blame, not “guns”. Under Obama, the Department of Education stupidly passed rules making it nearly impossible to punish or expel troubled, often violent students, under the guise that it was unfair or “racist” to do so. Unbelievable. What did Oblunder and his odious Education Secretary Arne Duncan think would happen? Hopefully Trump will rescind this idiotic rules. Ironically, some of these same leftists are now proposing that public school students now “walk-out” or no longer show up for school until action is taken on gun-control. I applaud this totally – it will help private schools and home-schooling even more.

Robert Mueller Is Really an Incompetent Buffoon

Never attribute malice to what can be adequately be described as incompetence. This article does an incredible job of destroying the DC-insider narrative that Mueller is highly competent and above reproach. His career is littered with foul-ups. Remember, large organizations always protect their own, and Dc is the worst.

The West Is Dying of Natural Causes

Jonah Goldberg, a well known “conservative” on National Review and Fox, is out with a book claiming that liberal western democracy is under assault by the forces of tribalism, nationalism and populism. He is blaming forces on the far-left and right. I think he totally misses the point. Conservatism is essentially liberal, a term the far-left has coopted. I would argue that it is largely under assault by leftism, socialism and big-government statism. The problem is that with great advances has come the rise of secularism and an erosion of morality. These things are intrinsically part of leftism. There is no longer a sense of right and wrong, there is a rise of moral relativism, and a feeling that people can “do what ever they want”. When things don’t work out there is a backlash against the system and opposing groups.

Those Most Concerned About “Climate Change” Least Likely to Take Action

Typical of leftists. Make other bear the brunt. Or even better, have government force people to take action. But individual responsibility? Forget it. This is just like charity, where study after study has shown that people who lean conservative are far more charitable than those on the left, who expect government to do everything.

The discussion of “moral licensing” is fascinating and seems to be very similar to “virtue signaling”. In the mind of the leftist, if I support the right causes and think the right thoughts I can do what I want because I am “morally superior”.
