The Single Most Important Difference Between Leftists and Every Other Normal Person

Let me preface this with a definition of leftist. Liberals are not leftists. They may place value on social programs run by government but more than anything real liberals believe in free speech. That is perhaps the biggest hill they will die on.

A leftist is a person who wants a single totalitarian government to enforce ALL of his/hers beliefs on ALL people. This person opposes freedom of speech, religion, expression and association. He or the government he runs has all the power to enforce “laws” and is the sole source of commerce, welfare and protection. He uses violence, propaganda, censorship and intimidation to get his way. Leftism has taken its form over the years in various types of government including socialism, fascism, Nazism and communism. Sounds a lot like the Democrat Party these days.

This brings me to the one fundamental difference between leftists and the 70% of people in America who are “normals”: liberals, centrists, independents, conservatives. Leftists want EVERYONE to do only as the leftist wishes, while everyone else just wants to be able to do as THEY and they alone wish and be left alone. This is very important for everyone to understand. For example, the leftist will demand all religions accept his view of morality and tolerance while any normal religious person just wants to practice his religion in peace and could not care less if the leftist starts his own alternative religion. So you get the persecution of Christians for opposing the entire LGBTQ agenda. Leftists do not create or build anything, they only seek to destroy. About the only exception I can think of when it comes to intrusion in personal matters is abortion, something that billions of people around the world view as a moral issue in that it at minimum is the taking of a life and at worst is murder. Isn’t it strange that the only freedom leftists want people to have is the freedom to an abortion? Well, in actual totalitarian communist countries like China of the past this “right” to an abortion actually became a state mandated procedure.

American leftists have more power now than any time since the 1930’s. They are trying to destroy the country. The sad reality is that real leftists probably represent only 30% of the country’s adult population if you believe polls, which I generally do on this topic, and probably only 10-15% of the country can be described as “hard-core” leftists: the communists, Marxists, the AOC and BLM types. Why is this small minority now running Democrat policy and gaining power in everything from academia to big business? Because they are militant, violent, intimidating and far too many reasonable people have tried to appease them hoping they will go away. But they won’t. You can’t appease the mob bully….you have to proverbially “punch it in the mouth”. They have also used the lies of “systemic racism”, “hate speech” and various fake “phobias” to intimidate and silence opposition. Everyone who opposes this totalitarian, freedom-destroying ideology must fight back. The ideology of the left cannot win in the marketplace of ideas. That is why it relies almost solely on censorship. I sense a majority of the country has had enough and is starting to do that, but taking the country back from the left will take years.

America Is Burning

Remember when Democrats and leftist media told us last year that everything would be OK if the country only got rid of the bad orange man for Joe Biden? He would unify and bring peace. Well, how is that working out? Things are demonstrably every bit as bad in primarily Democrat cities and feckless Joe and his clownish administration do nothing, too busy are they blowing trillions of dollars on leftist vanity projects, promoting transgenderism, flooding the country with illegal aliens, fanning racial tensions, trying to corrupt future elections and pack the Supreme Court. The country is in serious trouble. This has to stop.

CBS News And 60 Minutes Hits A New Low

There was a time 30 to 40 years ago when 60 Minutes provided interesting, hard-hitting news coverage and was universally respected. Sadly, those days are long gone.

“60 Minutes should be ashamed”: Dem Palm Beach County mayor says CBS smeared Ron DeSantis with Publix segment (hotair.com)

60 Minutes is now nothing more than leftist propaganda sewage. Most recently they were caught selectively editing a news conference by the left’s newest whipping boy, Florida governor Ron DeSantis. The piece was so dishonest that even some prominent Florida Dems have attacked CBS. You can’t spell CBS without BS.

Matt Taibbi: Leftist Corporate Press Is Basically America’s Pravda

Left-leaning but honest liberal Matt Taibbi has been creating a lot of headaches for America’s far-left fringe Democrats lately. In his latest screed he destroys corrupt leftist corporate media. He documents how the Democrat’s media toadies have strayed so far from a free and fair press that they bear strong resemblance to the former Soviet Union’s Pravda. It is worth noting that other than his gig at Rolling Stone, Taibbi has been forced to self-publish on Substack as most of corporate media has tried to shun him. They cannot handle the truth, but it isn’t stopping him.

Democrats Fail Economics

Two separate articles. In the first one several California cities enacted “hero pay” rules for “front line” workers in such places as grocery stores during the Wuhan Flu epidemic, giving these workers $4 to $5 more per hour, effectively increasing the already excessive minimum wage in the state. You see, thanks to California’s generous labor laws workers were already making $18 to $24 an hour. Anyone who knows the first thing about the grocery business know it operates on razor-thin margins. The result of this state sanctioned pay boost? A number of large grocery chains, including Kroger closed multiple stores and let go of workers. Hundreds of workers lost their jobs overnight. The kicker? This only applies to the big retailers. That makes sense.

In the second article it is pointed out that there is a nasty little rider attached to the government’s just passed “Covid relief bill” that prohibits states from cutting taxes. What does this have to do with Covid relief? So bad is the situation in Democrat states and so bad is leftist economics that they actually have to try to punish well-run conservative states. I suspect this will be challenged in court and struck down. It is a gross violation of Federalism.

The Epidemic Of LGBTQ-ism Among Today’s Young

Some recent polls suggest that close to 16% of youthful gen Z-ers identify as LGBTQ with large increases in “B” and “T”. I have seen some admittedly unscientific polls putting the number near 20%. What is the name of humanity is going on here? Throughout most of our recorded history homosexuality held held fairly steady around 2% and transgenderism around 0.2%. That started to change with the millennials born in the 80’s and 90’s and has exploded with those born around and after the year 2000.

Is this some major change in biology or “liberation” of what used to be taboo? Highly unlikely. What we are looking at is a Trojan Horse being used by corrupt leftists to destroy the country and traditional, moral culture. Especially when it comes to the explosion in perceived transgenderism, which was correctly viewed as a mental disorder until just a few years ago, nature does not support the numbers. Very few people are born anything other than definitively male or female. Hermaphrodites or those with ambiguous sex are very rare. With the far left taking over academia and media, they are pushing to normalize and mainstream transgenderism. Add in normal teen rebellion, confusion about sexuality in the teen years, peer acceptance, social media pressure (large numbers of teens report being influenced by this abhorrent medium), and the fact that in some quarters LGBTQ is now cool, and you have what some psychologists call “mass psychogenic illness”.

Why Is Transgender Identity on the Rise Among Teens? | Psychology Today

A strong case can be made that the “trans” movement is now the single greatest cultural threat to our society. If the left gets its way it will use this to destroy religious freedom: the Democrat Party is already trying. The good news if there is any is that the movement has a way of making enemies of other leftist “victim groups”. With transgender males fighting to compete in women’s sports feminism is clearly being attacked. As well, many gay groups are openly hostile to the radical trans movement, as are most people of color. If the trans movement is not stopped, additional even worse things will be headed America’s way. Next up: normalization of pedophilia.

Leftists Are Destroying Higher Education

And are in turn trying to destroy America. An alternate title for this article could have been “Revenge of The Hippies”. The author does an excellent job documenting how 1960’s radicals infected higher education in the 1980’s and 90’s and gradually transformed traditional, classical fact and reason based education into agenda driven indoctrination. They in turn “educated” a whole new generation (the millennials and Gen Z-ers) who are today’s cancel culture social-justice warriors. These people flock to the fields of education, destroying primary and secondary schools, media and “journalism” (he correctly calls it “infotainment”), technology, social media and government. The evidence he offers is overwhelming: as late as the 1980’s college faculty identified as liberal or conservative at roughly a 50-50 split. In fact I am old enough to recall that my elite, now horribly leftist alma mater was relatively conservative as late as that era. I would not go anywhere near the place now. Nowadays most “elite” colleges and universities are virtual leftist monopolies, self identified.

Coca-Cola Company Apparently Doesn’t Think Very Highly of Its White Employees

This is possibly the most racist thing I have seen this year. That’s saying something. Coca-Cola is telling its employees to be “less white”. The conclusion is that some powers that be at the company think whites are inherently racist. They just called probably half their customers racist. Good business move. I will not be buying their products anymore. Maybe this is part of a business strategy to focus more on Asia and Africa, I don’t know. Next we will hear from them that whiteness is “toxic”, like masculinity. This would be laughable if it were not being taught in a lot of schools.

The Left Ruins Everything, Now It’s Coming For the Military

Leftists, Marxists and Democrats, all one in the same now, seek to take over everything. They do it by slowly absorbing every aspect of culture and society. Despite much opposition, they are succeeding in education, entertainment, government, news media, sports, technology, business in general and now…the military. One of the new Defense Secretary’s initiatives is to root out “far-right extremists and hate groups” within the ranks. This false narrative has of course been created by Democrats and their corrupt media toadies. They are chasing a phantom, it does not exist. Nonetheless:

DOD Uses Witch-hunt for Extremists to Set the Stage for a Purge of Conservatives from the Military (redstate.com)

If you look hard enough for witches, you will find witches. This will only do one thing: damage if not destroy the US military. But then again, that is the goal.

I’m going to do a little thought experiment. Looking at the above key areas of society, I will rate from 0 (best – no impact) to 10 (worst – total control) how much the left has infiltrated and damaged each of them. 5 would be neutral.

Education – 7. Public education and the university system have indoctrinated a couple of generations of America-hating radicals. However, by many metrics they are now on the brink of failure, and private education is thriving as are other alternatives. There is hope. Still, leftists educators have cause untold harm. This is where it all started. Trending positive though.

Entertainment – 8. Pretty obvious.

Government – 5.5. The far-left controls the White House and Congress but the GOP controls a majority of states. The Federal bureaucracy is heavily left though. Still, there is hope. With all the effort the left puts into taking over government it is somewhat amazing that the country is split 50-50 by vote.

News media – 6.5. The media centers and print are bastions of leftism, but conservatives have much power on radio, the internet and has (had ) Fox.

Sports – 4.5. Sports used to be largely conservative. The far-left has tried to use race and the BLM movement to take them over. They don’t seem to be succeeding, as too much “woke” is turning off fans.

Tech – 8. This is the most alarming. Tech has swung far-left in the past decade and is now dominated by corrupt, anti-liberty companies Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter and Amazon. They have to be stopped.

Business – 6. Also alarming. Business used to be agnostic (other than liberal Wall Street) but is now being brow-beaten by the left to become “woke” and get in line.
