Getting To The Root Of: Why The Left Is Wrong

A FEW THOUGHTS BY
REMULAK MOXARGON
(Ruler of the Known Universe)
Greetings puny Earthlings.

I've been doing a little thinking lately about the political left, and why they are acting the way they are.

Some folks on the left are passably intelligent, or can at least fake their way through a conversation, so why are they doing something as stupid as doing everything to ensure victory for the very forces that seek to destroy them.

Well, let's get to the root of it all.

THE LEFT'S VALUES HAVE NO VALUE
You see, the average leftist claims to stand for various things, equal rights for women, religious & cultural tolerance, racial harmony, individual & national liberty, and freedom of speech. Yet recently, they have tossed all those things into Trotsky's proverbial dustbin to show their support of the most misogynistic, intolerant, racist, oppressive, imperialist, and censorious movement the world has seen since Josef Stalin's last genocide bender.

And I ain't talkin' about Halliburton.

I'm talking Islamist Fascism.

For some reason what's considered evil if perpetrated by Western
Christians is an absolute good if it's performed in the name of Allah. You see once respectable, but now completely leftist groups like Amnesty International posting pictures like this:

Where they c
ompare the vice president of the most powerful democracy in the history of the world to fictional supervillains over allegations of torture made by people who are trained by their masters to LIE about being tortured. All the while willfully ignoring their other manual that teaches them how to torture.

Leftist radicals also regularly march and protest in open support of the people who seek to destroy the very society that allows them to be free enough to call for the destruction of their own freedom. They openly cheer mass murders, rapists, and torturers, while jeering those who oppose them and condemn them as 'War Criminals' and 'liars.'

They also support the genocidal slaughter of the first and currently only successful, and most liberal, democracy in the Middle East.

Yep, a lot of lefties want to see tiny, liberal, Israel and all its inhabitants burnt to cinders by a religious fanatic who thinks he gets golden showers from the Almighty.

WTF?

But why? you may ask, furrowing your brow in a futile atte
mpt to understand, Israel doesn't tolerate the murder of women in the name of honour, or hang homosexuals, and it has a very social-agenda driven economy. Why?

The answer is simple.

LEFTISTS ARE OPPOSITIONAL BY NATURE
You see, the average leftist doesn't really have anything they will really fight to the death for. They will easily toss aside everything they claim to hold dear as long as it feeds one thing:

HATRED OF THE WEST

That pretty much sums it up. Like the man who doesn't know much about art, but he knows what he likes, the Leftist doesn't really know or care about what they value, they only knows what they hate.

And right now the center of that hatred is the United States of America and everything it stands for.

What does the United States of America stand for?

Liberty

Capitalism

Democracy

The Rule of Law

Freedom of Speech

The Judeo-Christian Spiritual and Philosophical Tradition

These things are an anathema to the Leftist, who actually predates the common left-right/communist-capitalist definitions formed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Before the rise of Marxism and Bolshevism, what we now call Leftists belonged to groups labeled as anarchists, heretics, or lunatics.

Marxism and all of its various and sundry offshoots provided a perfect outlet for the Leftist's oppositional nature, leading to decades of conflict, tension, and the deaths of over 100 million people in the 20th Century.

Sadly, classical Marxism collapsed as the 20th century rang down the curtain to join the choir invisible, so the Leftist needed something to hang onto.

It couldn't be just anything. It had to fit in with their illusory claims of defending the rights of people oppressed by evil westerners (who are the only people capable of committing evil in the Leftist mind) who will take the place of the proletariat, who abandoned them when they refused to ignore the petty little man behind the Great Oz's curtain. To keep up this illusion it had to be a movement based in the problems of the 3rd world, much of them created by leftist policies, and be opposed to everything the Western World hold dear.

Islamist fundamentalism fit the bill to a 'T.'

It doesn't matter that this movement the so-called 'Progressives' support want to blast the world into the dark ages, because it gives the Leftist the one thing they desire.

THE LEFTIST ONLY WANTS POWER
That's right. The Leftist is only doing this, not out of a desire for peace, brotherhood, or any of the other tripe they claim to want. They want power and they will do anything to get it. And that means lying, stealing, killing, and betrayal. All things the extreme radical leftist is quite adept at doing.

And once they get power, you can be guaranteed that all their promises of equality, prosperity, and peace, are all smoke and mirrors.

However...

NOT ALL LEFTISTS ARE CREATED EQUALLY
You see, some leftists are more left than other leftists.

Does that make any sense?

Let me explain.

Some Leftists use their tradition of deception, occasional violence, betrayal, and willingness to go to bed with anyone, politically, to further their lust for power.

But they are not a majority.

The majority can best be described, by Lenin, as "useful idiots." They're people who are blind to the lies and hypocrisy of their philosophical masters and think that their 'progressive' course to a new stone age truly is the best, because someone told them so and threw a lot of mangled figures, and often falsified facts to prove their case.

They really believe everything they are told, as long as it fits their overwhelming prejudice against Western Culture.

Why?

What do I look like, a psychiatrist?

One thing I will do is pretty much guarantee you that I will get a long rambling post from an anonymous lefty troll declaring everything I know is wrong, because Noam Chomsky told him so.

Or the trolls may look at my little prediction and let their natural oppositionalism win over, and keep their mouths shut.

But that's unlikely.

Leftists can't let an opportunity for a good crank pass.

It's in their nature.

In August 2001, lefties agitated over burqas, Bamiyan Buddhas, and beauty shops closed by the Taliban. It's kind of like those "Free Tibet" bumper stickers that seem to have grown rarer as of recent days. The romance of a "lost cause" is what leftists crave more than taking real action to correct real injustices.

In a way, it's unfair to present an in-depth critique of something that appears to be casually crafted as a random post on a humor blog. On the other hand, rather than being "random thoughts," this post represents a deeply-embedded point of view that reveals much of the essence of "conservative" thinking.

This point of view is so deeply embedded that the underlying beliefs are accepted as fact even though based on misperceptions at many levels and therefore profoundly flawed.

Most of the political debate in the U.S. is clouded by vested interests and by ideology, so I ask you Remmy what do you gain from such a sick and pathetic post?

Are you trying to get rid of me?

Everyday the voices of the Democratic Party and their fellow 'progressives' engage in anti-semitism, holocaust denial, and march in support of people who oppress women, murder children and hang homosexuals and yet I'm the "sick & pathetic" person for calling them on it.

And so what if my random thoughts are deeply embedded or even conservative. It's my blog and I can write about whatever the flying farglenobs I want to write about.

This wasn't a personal attack against you, even though you pretty much fit my prediction to a 'T' but more of a general polemic against the cancer of hypocrisy that is destroying liberalism and replacing it with a nutty anti-everything movement.

I think that anon is one of the useful idiots.

Stalin and Hitler had countries full of them.

I appreciate what you are saying, and I know why you are saying it. But, I have to say this: Not all leftists are like that.

For example: What do you call a guy who wants to see taxes raised, gay marriage legalized - and comes out to say that "We are at war with Islam" and that "Liberals are soft on terrorism"?

Well, "Sam Harris" actually.

And what do you call a prominent leftist journalist who lacerated the Vietnam war and Henry Kissinger - and spent the rest of her life speaking out against Islam and its evil?

Well, "Oriana Fallaci" actually.

See where I am going with this?

There is a sharp division between the "Old Left" and the "New Left". The Old Left still holds true to the idea of 'engineering' a better culture and civilisation. I think they are wrong, but _they can still recognise that one culture is superior to another_.

The New Left hates any idea of superiority and just wants to destroy what _is_ demonstrably superior, i.e. Western civilisation. The Old Left wants none of that.

And the Old Left has alot of illustrious names.

Put it this way: If we could bring George Orwell and Victor Hugo back from the dead and put them in charge of American foreign policy, do you know what we would have?

A large glass parking lot where Iran used to be. _That's_ what we would have.

I stand by that. There is _no way_ that the man who wrote Les Miserables (about society's injustice towards its lower orders) would have put up with this bull.

I bring this up for a reason: We need every mind we can get. So: the Left isn't just Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan. It's also Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris. We need these men.

Fanusi-

Those folks you mentioned aren't even considered 'left' or 'liberal' anymore by their former comrades. Hitchens, Fallaci et al... are now considered 'Neo-Cons' because unlike modern leftists, they appreciate Western Civilization.
