You know, a year and half ago I tried to be reasonable. I tired to say that progressive goals were all well and good but the most extreme elements of the Left were going too far and needed to tone it down and properly understand their own messages about tolerance. However the Left has only gotten much much worse. Somehow. The violence, the hatred, the bigotry and the abuses of the Left have gotten increasingly worse ever since Trump became the Republican candidate for President. Things haven’t gotten better after he won of course, if anything the Left has become more and more extreme. Thank the powers that be that Republicans have taken control of the majority and made major advances in state government control across the country. I don’t say that because I’m a Republican myself by the way. I don’t concern myself overly much with state politics in other states because I live in quasi-one party blue state called California, and barring the wonderful weather and terrain variety it sucks out here. Just ask the decades long list of business who said “fuck it” and left.
Normally my main complaint with the Left is that it has no fucking idea how to handle money. California is great example, lots of spending, tons of debt and some cities going bankrupt. Yet for some reason we’re building high speed rail no one will use at the cost of billions of dollars even though our constantly used roads are falling apart. Shouldn’t we focus on those instead? Oh right we have to raise more taxes for that because the Left’s idea of government is to take as much money as it needs from taxpayers without a second thought and not bothering to prioritize the spending on necessaries first and sanctuary cities and high speed rail second. Now however I’m reminded of a passage I read somewhere that said something to the effect of you can never give the righteous too much power or you’ll end up with witch hunts. And if the Left’s current behavior is anything to by I’d half expect it to actually happen.
The Left has forsaken intelligent discourse, basic human reason, and with surprising frequency, democracy itself. Violent protests all over the nation after Trump wins. Violent protests when conservative speakers come to speak on college campuses. Teachers who show up at Antifa rallies and hit people. Teachers decrying Trump as worse than Hitler. People who call everyone who disagrees with them facists and Nazis, white supremacists and misogynists. People who feel not only ok but justified as they spew slander and lies from their mouths and violence with their fists, or in some cases bikelocks. The Left has gone fucking insane. So insane that moderates, even left leaning ones are disgusted by their party. The Left seems to think righteous indignation and “being morally right” are justification for awful behavior. Have they never heard of crossing a fucking line? Of going too far in the name of a good cause to be considered just? I guess not.
Not only that, they stifle free speech and dissent, with harassment and violence, and are somehow proud of it. They cry “victory” when they get so violent they force speakers to cancel events and flee the scene. They beat and in a few extreme cases torture people who disagree with them without batting a fucking eye. And all the while they claim we, those who disagree with them, are the dangerous ones. They brand us with all manner of insulting names, say we harass women and minorities, say we are oppressive and violent. I find all that especially ridiculous considering the following facts:
- They are being incredibly violent and harassing the shit out of anyone who disagrees with them, despite claiming that behavior is bad.
- For a “white supremacist” country we just had 8 eight years of a Black President.
- For a country with such deeply ingrained oppression that they described it with words like “systemic” and “internalized” these people, who claim to be the targets of said oppression, have demonstrated constantly their freedom in protesting and speaking out against this oppression.
- They suppress freedom of speech with violence and somehow call us the fascists.
Moreover let it be known that the Left had been repeatedly documented lying it’s ass off to prove how violent the Right is or how we harass Muslims. Viral story about Muslim woman who claimed she was harassed just after Trump won the election, admitted it was a lie. Viral video of “illegal immigrant” paying taxes, closer inspection shows she claimed to be paying state taxes but was holding a federal tax form, which was blank, and she was driving a car meaning she legally had to have some documentation. Antifa protester telling her account of she was attacked and repeatedly thrown to the ground by her attacker, footage shows that she attacked him first and he hit back once, and no one ever threw her to the ground. Hysterical. That’s the best word to describe the Left these days.
They speak in extremes, caricature all who disagree as baskets of deplorable, react violently to the free speech of others, lie through their teeth to justify themselves and create problems where none exist, or at least exacerbate existing problems to a far greater degree than they existed before. And they think they’re right to do it because they are fighting for progress and moral superiority. I’d call them children, like how the University of Michigan ( I think) held a Play-doh and Coloring Books day after Trump’s election to relieve the stress of the all students, but children at least have the dignity to shut up when they’re proven demonstrably wrong and are less likely to turn into rabid mobs.
And it’s not just lunatics and radicals playing into this either. Months ago Bernie Sanders let out this tweet about uniting to resist Trump and how the Right will never divide us. But here’s the thing, who’s doing the dividing? Democrats benefit far more from a narrative where division and oppression run rampant, and they have been humping identity politics so vigorously they came and lost control of it. And just yesterday a Berkeley student went out on Facebook and commented that shutting down Ann Coulter, prior to that being rescinded, was a victory. That a campus choosing safety over freedom of speech was a step forward. How un-American. Not like unpatriotic, but like way to fly in the face of the very values and laws this nation was built on. If you want speech censored for your own safety why not go to China or North Korea instead, they’ve got plenty of that going on.
The worst part of it all, Berkeley wouldn’t be unsafe in the first place if these rioting college students and professors just respected everyone’s First Amendment in the first fucking place. There would be no violence at Berkeley over a conservative speaker if not for the Left, yet a liberal somehow thinks we have to be “safety first” and cancel the speaker. Right, by that logic I think safety first would be the mass slaughter of all dissidents, which given the current Republican administration would mean all the SJWs, Antifas and radical Left protesters would be killed. Good thing Republicans follow the rules of democracy and allow your awful, retarded protests. But we’re still the Nazi’s here right?
I’d say the Left needs to get a hold of themselves but the sane ones are already leaving and are either becoming Republican or forming their own faction, and if the far Left continues it’s currently behavior it will eventually collapse entirely. And I’d love to see that, I’d love to see these entitled, hypocritical, violent pieces of shit get what’s coming to them. Because that’s what they deserve.
While I’m at it I’d just like to say that the Left’s Islam apologia is disgusting. I’m not an Islamaphobe, I don’t hate people for being Muslims. But we need to call Muslims out when their behavior isn’t ok. When Muslims throw gays off of buildings or create gay concentration camps don’t try to justify it by saying “uh well America did X…” Because really that logic is retarded. We don’t justify evils by comparing them to other evils, that’s how we are supposed to condemn them. Before Nazi was overused to the point of actual irrelevance, when you compared something to Nazis it was bad thing, you didn’t say well the Khmer Rouge’s ethnic cleansing was ok because Nazis did the same thing… Are you people fucking insane? I mean I guess I already said that you are but come on. Can you not champion tolerance of good Muslims while also decrying the bad Muslims? You just have to defend the whole package no matter how many beheadings, rapes, terror attacks, and so the bad Muslims are responsible for. Are you so blinded by tolerance that you can’t recognize that Islam is the most violent religion in the world.
Because it is. Sharia law is backwards and barbaric. Muslims are the main source of terrorism in the world today. There is no other religion which has birthed so many prominent terrorist groups over multiple geographical regions. ISIS, Al Quaida, Hezzbollah, Boko Haram, the Muslim Brotherhood, the list goes on and on. “But the crusades were just as bad” you sputter rising to Muslims’ defense. Even if you were right, and your not, the Crusades ended centuries ago, it’s like blaming all evil on white people because of slavery… oh wait you guys do that too, shit bad example. However what you should know is that the Middle East has been embroiled in jihad for roughly 1000 years, resulting in hundreds of major battles launched against Western civilization, none of which is counting the terror attacks of last century. Those damnable Crusades had about 10 major battles and lasted roughly 400 years…
It’s not even an opinion that Islam is more violent than Christianity, it’s a historically calculable objective fact. Which the Left bravely denies because white people have to be the source of all evil in the liberal narrative, no not even white people, cis white men specifically. Because why not discriminate against an entire class of people while proclaiming tolerance and equality for all? That doesn’t sound horribly hypocritical and ironic at all ( that was SARCASM). The Left is worse than a collection of spoiled children. Their collective idiocy, hysteria, lies, fear-mongering, hypocrisy, intolerance, racism, sexism and violence, all while claiming they do what they do in the name of tolerance, is pathetic and I can’t wait for the far Left to just fucking die. I can’t wait for the day when everyone wakes and calls them out on their bullshit, or if current behavior is any indication the day the Left pisses off enough people that it gets overwhelmed by the violence it has perpetuated for the last year. The far Left deserves nothing less than total loss of legitimacy. Fuck’em.
