A Pew study showed that white leftists, especially young women, are far more likely to experience mental health issues. We have been saying this for years and now we have proof! Leftists have to accept it…they always follow the science!
Seventh Generation is a woke company that makes cleaning supplies. Big are they on “climate change” and the environment, but they have likely created major problems for themselves by embracing defund the police.
The company is HQ’d in Burlington Vermont where it is really easy to pontificate about police violence while minority neighborhoods burn. Time for a boycott.
For the better part of the past four and a half years many arrogant leftists in Canada have lectured the US on “democracy”. I know this because I know a few of these insufferable jerks. Well, due to Covid lockdowns their country has devolved into a leftist-fascist dictatorship.
Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts of America, once a great organization, has basically been destroyed. For decades leftists have attacked, intimidated and sued the BSA first to let in girls, then gays, then transgender boys. Sadly, the national organization has largely caved. No normal person on the scale from actual liberal to conservative would lift a finger to stop an “all-girl” scouts, gay scouts, or LGBTQ+ scouts. But that is not how the left rolls.
Women’s sports. The left is now openly attacking women’s and girl’s rights under the guise of “fairness” forcing transgender women (biological males) to compete in women’s sports. There cannot be more than 20-30% of the country that supports this lunacy as the evidence that biological males have a huge physical advantage over actual females even after “transitioning” is irrefutable. You will never see any of the 70% of “normals” litigate against transgender females competing against their own, but the left won’t have it. Perhaps they know that there is no market for transgender spectator sports, so they will wreck women’s sports instead. This is no different than separate sporting events for handicapped people. We made special accommodations for them, and should. Perhaps new “real woman” sports organizations need to start up, since there is a clear physical disadvantage.
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.
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.
Little Albion College in Michigan was up in arms last week after multiple pieces of vile racist graffiti were found on the campus. Protests ensued, racism and “white supremacy” were blamed. Oops. An investigation quickly found that a black male student was behind it, obviously trying to inflame racial tensions, as if that was needed. The university correctly suspended the student and removed him from campus, but embarrassed itself by issuing a pandering statement that racism has existed on campus and that it needs to do better. The correct response would have been to expel the student and issue a statement that fake hate crimes are every bit as reprehensible than real one. They need to talk to Charles Barkley. Of course the left-wing media breathlessly covered it until the truth came out. Then it magically disappeared.
There was a time when the NCAA was just corrupt. Now it is corrupt and inept. It’s latest folly is opposing states that seek to protect women athletes from unfair competition at the hands of transgender women, formerly men. It is worth noting that the feckless NCAA board that made this decision is made up almost entirely of men. Misogyny?
Here is the future ow women’s athletics if the NCAA has its way:
Unless you are known to be a carrier and are coughing or sneezing, masks will do nothing. If you are sick you should wear one to restrict your own spewing…that’s it. Furthermore they can cause harm and are traumatizing millions of people.
