Here’s a great piece that clearly captures the big picture. It discusses the issues du jour, gay marriage, trannies n such. But just reveals the real agenda and motivation, accumulation of power. Republicans cave in nearly every case hoping for some future common ground but never get it. The left is all out for power and destroying any common ground. It’s crystal clear looking backward through this lens. They use the du jour issues and useful idiots to grab power under the guise of various issues. There might not even be a “they” driving it but this is the direction and outcome of the movement.
Here are some excerpts but read the whole thing, complete with anecdotes etc… Once you read it you won’t look at politics and issue debates the same.
There comes a time when every conservative thinker tries to find some common ground with the left in some area. Today it’s criminal rights and the headlines have Rand Paul denouncing the racist justice system while Grover Norquist and the Koch Brothers join with the left to back their reforms. As usually happens, the conservatives or libertarians turn out to be the useful idiots of the left. Liberals have a long history of being the left’s useful idiots.
The left does not care about gay rights. If you doubt that, consider how many of the left’s favorite Muslim countries have gay rights. The left has recently divided its campaign passions between gay marriage and defending Iran. Iran denies the existence of gays and hangs them where it finds them.
The left does not care about social justice. It cares about power.
That is why no truce is possible with the left. Not on social issues. Not on any issues.
The left is a drunk in a bar trying to pick a fight with you. Trying to convince him that you didn’t disrespect him, put something in his beer to make him dizzy or make his feet so heavy they won’t work. There’s no ‘agree to disagree’ possible here. He’s picking a fight with you because he wants a fight.
The left does not care about Bruce Jenner. It does not care about gay rights, equal pay, police brutality or even slavery. Its activists ‘care’ about those things a great deal right now, but they could easily be persuaded tomorrow to be outraged by telephone poles, shredded wheat or people in green sweaters.
They move on from issue to issue, and the result is accumulation of power and crushing of dissent.
They care mainly about emotional venting and exercising power over others. It’s the same phenomenon witnessed during the Salem Witch Trials, the French Revolution or any other mob scene. Except the individual elements of the mob are on social media and have a hashtag.
The outraged social justice warrior was laughing at tranny jokes a few years ago. Now he’s ready to kill over minor verbal missteps. A few years from now he’ll be laughing at them again.
Look at how butthurt people are now on the left and in the media. They go ballistic over any comment, even taken wildly out of context. Trump says there are many criminals and rapists coming across the border illegally and it gets pasted onto the entire population of Mexico and everyone is offended??? Faux outrage.
The cause is progress, but the real cause is the power of its enforcers to vent their unhappiness and destructive impulses on everyone else under the guise of reform.
This dovetails into another good read:
Misery loves company for the left.
You can’t find common ground with the left because it is an activist machine dedicated to destroy common ground, not only with the right, but even with its own allies on the left. Progress turns what was once progressive into what is reactionary. And what was reactionary into what is progressive.
Republicans, conservatives, libertarians and other class enemies cannot possibly ‘progress’ enough to be acceptable to the left because it identifies progress with political conformity. A tolerant and progressive Republican is a contradiction in terms.
If he were truly tolerant and progressive, he wouldn’t be a Republican.
There is NEVER a call for bipartisanship, nor even an effort by the left when in power. But it is screamed from the rooftops during any republican leadership. When does the left ever brag about reaching across the aisle? They got the useful idiot RINO McCains doing that though.
The left will destroy the things you care about, because you care about them. It will destroy them because that gives them power over you. It will destroy them because these things stand in the way of its power. It will destroy them because a good deal of its militant activists need things to destroy, and if they can’t attack you, they’ll turn on the left in a frenzy of ideologically incestuous purges.
The gay rights movement will not stop at fulfilling their desire to do certain things, the militant faction are out to crush any opposition and punish those that do not believe. No such thing as live and let live for them, something they have been pursuiing. Now they have it, there’s hell to pay for any dissent.
The left’s social justice program is really a wave of these purges which force their own people to hurry up and conform to whatever the Party dictated this week. Examples are made out of laggards on social media to encourage the rest to stop thinking and start marching in line. As Orwell knew well, these shifts select for mindless ideological zombies while silencing critical thinkers
Are we still hunting confederate flags? or are we on to the next target?
And that is the prize that the left dearly wants. Surrender.
The left’s media machine makes its madness seem cool even though behind all the agitating young things are a bunch of bitter old leftists. But the madness is a means, not an end. So is the facade of revolutionary cool to each shift.
They have done a good job creating surrender in DC from nearly every Republican.
The left exists to destroy you. It does not seek to co-exist with you. Its existence would lose all meaning. Any common ground will be used to temporarily achieve a goal before the useful idiots are kicked to the curb and denounced as bigots who are holding back progress.
The purpose of power is power. The left is not seeking to achieve a set of policy goals before kicking back and having a beer. The policy goals are means of destroying societies, nations and peoples before taking over. If you allow it a policy goal, it will ram that goal down your throat. It will implement it as abusively as it possibly can before it moves on to the next battle.
It’s not about gay marriage. It’s not about cakes. It’s about power.
Gay rights is an important issue for a small group and to allow them to live their lives as they so choose, but remember, it isn’t about that, as the march goes on.
More fundamentally it’s about the difference in human nature between the people who want to be left alone and those who want power over others.
You can’t work out a truce with tyrants. You can give in or stand up to them. There’s nothing else.
This explains why the left, particularly hollyweird celebrities get obsessed with tyrants and dictators. They are worshipped for their celebrity but desire and identify with dictators to control vast amounts of people. There are numerous examples of hollyweird lefties that cozy up to real dictators. The left respects only power and domination.
Again, read the article as it has current and historical examples of these main points. I think its interesting to read this no matter what political persuasion. It may give the left insight on the right, it may wake up some left so they do not become useful idiots. It’s certainly a wake up call for the GAGA(go along to get along) RINOs that pride themselves on caving in the name of bipartisanship(surrender)
progress? or power?
