Understanding The Left

Post by Riddick » 01-13-2020 01:57 AM

Edited/Excerpted from Dennis Prager's article :

It Is not easy to understand the left. Asked for a treatise or two to read, every leftist will give a different answer or need some time to think it over. Few, if any, will suggest Marx's "Das Kapital" because almost no leftists have read it and because you will either not finish the book or reject it as incoherent.

So then, how is one to understand leftism? The fact is, it is nigh incomprehensible. What leftist in history would have ever imagined to be a leftist, one needs believe men give birth and have periods or it is fair that women have to compete in sports with biological males who identify as females?

There are two main reasons why what the left stands for is nearly impossible to describe. One is, ultimately, leftism represents chaos: -- Open borders -- "Nonbinary" genders -- Nonsensical & scatological "art" -- "Music" sans tonality, melody or harmony -- Drag Queen Story Hour for 5-year-olds...

-- Rejection of the concept of better or worse civilizations -- Removal of Shakespeare's picture from a university English department because he was a white male -- Ending all fossil fuel use even in transportation (as per the recent recommendation by the head of the U.N. World Meteorological Organization)...

-- Wholesale dismemberment of capitalist-free market based economic policies that have lifted billions of people out of abject poverty. And much more.

The other major reason leftism defies definition: it is key to the core emotion-driven. Leftism consists of causes offering those who otherwise lack meaning a lifeline to cling to. TIME's 2019 Person Of The Year embodies these explanations. Like all good leftists, she seeks to dismantle just about everything.

With regard to chaos, Greta Thunberg wrote at the beginning of the month: "The climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice and of political will. Colonial, racist and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fuelled it. We need to dismantle them all."

As regards emotion and meaning, the BBC reports: "Greta Thunberg's father has opened up about how activism helped his daughter out of depression ... how activism had changed the outlook of the teenager, who suffered from depression for 'three or four years' before she began her school strike protest outside the Swedish parliament. She was now 'very happy', he said ... 'She stopped talking ... she stopped going to school,' he said of her illness."

The fact is life today is better, safer & more affluent, and offers more opportunities for more people, than ever. Just about all mature and reasoned, emotionally stable, intellectually unencumbered, mentally undisturbed people in the West should be walking around almost unendurably delirious and exhausted experiencing this great good fortune; in particular, and especially Americans should feel this way.

And yet, among young Americans (and perhaps Swedes), depression is at the highest levels ever. More and more, we find our secluar modern world has left a vast number of the West's citizens, younger people mostly, looking to fill Grand-Canyon-sized personal craters in their unfulfilled lives with leftist causes.

Until she saw a chance to literally save the world Greta Thunberg was so deeply depressed "she stopped talking." But after embracing climate activism and other left-wing causes, she is now "very happy" (an assessment I suspect many observers find hard to believe).

Feminism and "fighting patriarchy" (in an age when American women have more opportunities than ever, and more than almost anywhere in the world), fighting racism (in the least racist multiracial society in history), fighting white supremacy (which has almost disappeared from American life) and fighting to fundamentally transform society on behalf of myriad other leftist causes gives people with no meaning, meaning.

None of that is morally or rationally coherent. But it is very emotionally satisfying. Just ask Greta Thunberg's dad.

The above nonsense is one of the reasons we have so few posters here on the once fabulous FF. :(

HUGE REVELATION: Democrats on House Impeachment Team VOTED AGAINST the Aid Package for Ukraine They Want to Impeach Trump Over (VIDEO)


Another Huge Lie from Democrats and their Liberal Media!

The Democrat Party and their colleagues in the liberal mainstream media want to impeach President Trump for not sending lethal aid to the Ukraine quick enough.

President Trump waited 55 days before release taxpayer-funded US aid to the Ukrainian government in 2019.
Democrats want you to believe this was a crime or misdemeanor.

BUT NOW THERE’S THIS…
Those same Democrats on the House Impeachment Team VOTED AGAINST the aid package to the Ukraine last year!

Three of the House Impeachment Managers voted AGAINST Aid to Ukraine.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) all voted against the bill that included the aid to Ukraine.

And Jerrold Nadler voted against the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018 that included aid to Ukraine.

I can understand Their Hostile Attitude . The "Illiterate Rubes", "Deplorables" and hundreds of other Derogatory names are standing in the way of their Regime Change, (over throw of the American Government).

This has never been seen in this country before, many don't recognise what is happening. I See no difference between the Obama/Hitlery Regime Change of Libya or Egypt, by taking out their Leaders and Their RePlacement of those Governments WITH WHAT THEY WANTED! Except , no bullets......yet! No assassinations........yet! These are desperate "Thugs" that will go to Any Length to get what they want!

The "Hate America, Hate Americans" campaign is strong and in your face. :evil:




Nolte: CNN Segment Ridicules Trump Supporters as Illiterate ‘Rubes’

In the form of Don Lemon, Rick Wilson, and Wajahat Ali, the unholy trinity of CNN, the New York Times, and Never Trump got together Saturday to mock Trump supporters as illiterate rubes.

At first, the only thing notable about the segment was how so much failure was able to fit on a single TV screen. Don Lemon is one of the lowest rated anchors in all of cable news. Never Trumper Rick Wilson is the far-left media’s trained pet. The New York Times Wajahat Ali is — okay, I don’t know who that is.

Anyway, it was Saturday night on CNN, so these three probably figured no one is watching anyway, so why the hell not…

We join the trio in their favorite position: besides themselves with outrage, this time over the fact Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stood up for himself against the welfare queens over at NPR. Pompeo asked one of the welfare queen’s fake reporters if she could find Ukraine on a map, and this is where our story begins…

As their Liberal Democrat Commrads, spur them on.

From above article:

"Whether it’s the Deep South in the 50s and 60s, or America today, when Democrats like Lemon, Ali, and Wilson feel their power threatened, feel themselves exposed, they get uglier and uglier."

Report: $90 Billion in US Taxpayer Money Donated to Global Slush Fund to Fight AIDS But a Portion of the Funds Made It to Clintons, Soros and Others Instead

An investigative report revealed that $90 Billion in US Taxpayer money has been funneled to overseas organizations in the name of helping those with HIV AIDS. In reality the funds are distributed to organizations including the Clinton Health Access Initiative and George Soros’s Open Health Institute.

Corey Diggs put together a report that shows that efforts to combat HIV AIDS may just be fronts for money laundering schemes ran by the Clintons and George Soros. The story begins in August 2000, a few months before Bill Clinton’s second term ends. On August 19, 2000:
" In 2003, The Global Fund issued [with funds from the US and others] its first grant to the Open Health Institute (OHI), an Open Society Foundation affiliate (George Soros) operating in the Russian Federation, to the tune of $88 million. Yes, Russia. Grants continued through 2018. But this wasn’t the only involvement George Soros had with the Global Fund. More on this in subsequent chapters."

• The ANTIAIDS Foundation was founded by Elena Franchuk and husband Victor Pinchuk in the Ukraine, who went on to work with the Clinton Health Access Initiative in 2004. Of course, the Pinchuks also partnered with Coca-cola, George Soros, Kofi Annan, Elton John, and others. Victor Pinchuk was also a big donor to the Clinton Foundation. More on this in subsequent chapters.
In 2002 the Clintons inserted themselves into the global initiatives with AIDS:

BACKFIRE: 'I Will Never Vote Democrat Again,' Say Angry Dems on C-SPAN After Pelosi's Tantrum

This is the most satisfying video series you'll see all day. After Pelosi and her White Witches threw their little fits of rage last night at the SOTU, they felt very smug about themselves. Their voters, on the other hand, felt differently. It turns out that most Americans think you should stand up and clap for the good things that happen in America instead of sulk and pout on your butt like a spoiled child.

C-SPAN asked people to call in and give their opinions on the SOTU. What happened after that was brilliant. "I'm a Democrat, but I no longer will vote Democrat," said one caller. "I think it's outrageous that they sat there when all these good things are happening to our country and how much we love our country. And they looked like they hated our country...It's outrageous and I will never vote Democrat again." She went on to say that all her family voted for Hillary last time but this time they will never vote for a Democrat again.

I waited for my "Ah Hah! "Gotca" Moment, but I never got there. The situation is just too "pitiful". You see I am a "Patriot" I love my Country, Sure it has "Worts" and conditions that can always be made better. Or we can go the way of the "Very Sour, America and American Hating, Democrats"! By golly , they have this insatiable desire to destroy everything in America to gain money, property, prestige And POWER over every living or dead thing on this Planet.

What I saw at the SOTU last night, Nancy's rubber mouth antics, women dessed in white either posing as the Klan or Vestal Virgins one more believable than the other....... and a sourness usally only found in Colicy Babies.
Proving once again that they think so well of themselves, that they really are Above any human quality, they might have had in any previous life.

Nadler was out "fishing" today for the next Trump Attack. So not a long breathing spell, so enjoy. I guess voters
Don't mind a do nothing House , except to fire hate , division, destruction.

All a Nancy SET-UP!


Nancy Pelosi was caught on camera PRACTICING 'the rip heard round the world' even though her office denied allegation that she planned to tear up Trump's State of the Union all along

Mike Pence accused Nancy Pelosi of planning all along to rip up the president's State of the Union speech
'It felt like it,' the Vice President said, but Pelosi spokesperson told DailyMail.com it was not pre-planned
But a canny observer caught the speaker practicing the move under the table and posted a clip showing the move

Just "pocket money" for these creeps, except they used "Tax Payer Money" for backing, in order to get their own pockets full. And this is just the "tip of the ice-burg", NO Matter what "label" you fly with. The low information , Democrat "Cheering Squad" is either totally ignorant, living under a rock, or they are just as "Corrupt" as their leaders and really don't care, just as long as they win! Win What? I might ask? How many got a personal check from any of the above? These Rich Leaders of yours, don't share their Rich and Powerful "Utopia" with the likes of you!





REMINDER: Joe Biden, John Kerry, Mitt Romney, The Clintons, Nancy Pelosi and George Soros All Have Connections to the Ukraine


What are the odds that Joe Biden, John Kerry, Mitt Romney, the Clintons, Speaker Pelosi and George Soros all have connections to the Ukraine? Hmmmm
Joe Biden and his son Hunter

If you don’t know that Joe Biden’s son Hunter was the Board member of Burisma, the Ukrainian Oil and Gas firm, then you are living under a rock. This is the same company Joe Biden bragged about removing a prosecutor who was looking into the Bidens’ and George Soros in the Ukraine:

Snippet:
John Kerry

"We posted a 32 tweet thread that was an articulate and devastating summary of Obama’s Vice President Biden and Secretary of State Kerry’s corrupt actions in the Ukraine –"

Snippet:
Mitt Romney

According to an article published in the Huffington Post shortly after President Trump was inaugurated, a former top CIA official joined the board of Burisma, Ukraine’s largest provider of natural gas.

Burisma is the oil and gas company at the center of a controversy about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, who also served on Burisma’s board.

The article says that Joseph Cofer Black would be “leading the company’s security and strategic development efforts.” Black had served in various CIA positions under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush.

According to reports, Cofer Black was a “top Romney aide.”

Much Much More!
