Moderate Lefties Are Not Your Friends

This is an excellent example of how those on the Left are able to fool decent people with their seeming niceness.  The author writes with good intentions which is exactly the trap he was meant to fall into.  Read this article from the Unshackled.

Note how the author defends his friends on the ideological left from the charge of being a crazy leftist; how many times do you think his left leaning friends have defended him against unfair charges of being on the crazy right?  My money’s on zero.

The left is filled with crazies no doubt.  But there are others who seem nice and genuine.  Who may even debate you intelligently from time to time.  You can have a drink with them and talk about sport, the weather the latest in politics.  You can agree to disagree most of the time.

The job of these people is to put a nice face on the ugliness of Leftism.  To fool you into thinking that are rational reasons to be on the left.  These people are not interested in getting their hands dirty and performing any of the executions when the time comes.  In fact these guys are the wannabe leaders.

Nice Leftie at a young age; stylish and handsome:-

Same leftie, many years later and with tens of millions killed on his watch…….still able to smile about it all:-

Below is the comment I posted in response to this article:-

I have to take issue with one aspect of your post and it is a position that took me many years to reconcile.

“To be clear, I know many people who are ideologically on the left and who are incredibly tolerant of conservative, centrist, and libertarian points of view. These people are just on the left, and should not be confused with the “leftists” who will scream down any ideological opposition”

I too had friends on the ideological left who never engaged in the vicious tactics that some of their allies do. Yet I never noticed them pushing back against it either. I never saw them defend conservatives of all stripes from the charges laid against them by leftists and leftist entities such as the mainstream media.

These people are actually worse; they understand exactly what is going on. They want to retain the moral high ground….yet they know the charges laid against ordinary people are false. Yet they do nothing to defend good people.

They want to be your friend…..but are happy to retain the tactical advantage gained by you constantly having to defend yourself against false attacks. They are very much false friends.

If you have people like this in your life I suggest you confront them with a few such like points and see what kind of reaction you get.

These kind of people are actually the enablers of the far left. They want to seem pure and moral and good people. They want to appear above the fray. The far left are just the shock troops; for example they never have a bad word to say about groups like antifa. They fool you with their seeming niceness.

Just remember an intelligent person could not possibly look at the history of the left and imagine anything good has come of leftist ideology. Even the seeming nice people on the left you know are really just chasing power by another tactic. They’re happy that you will entertain them from time to time but they will never defend you.

Anyway, this is my first comment on the unshackled site; I love the work that you do.

I’m somewhat passionate on this topic as I decided to confront of a few of these kinds of people in my life recently and the results were very informing. Trust me when I say these people are not your friends and I invite you to test if your friendships are real. Prove me wrong.

 

What the Bloody Hell Happened……

Leftists took over and dominated the culture.  The voice of the sensible, the intelligent, the informed have been slowly eroded over the years until the current tipping point has been reached and the parasitic classes; politicians, legal types, media, arts and the education establishment; now thoroughly dominate the discourse.

The continual decline of education over several generations however is the absolute killer blow in the culture wars that were only ever fought by leftists.  We have reached peak dum where the most uneducated and least likely to accomplish anything in life are miseducating those force to attend their classes.  It’s not their fault; they themselves were miseducated however the trend over the years had been ever increasing levels of miseducation.

The left have been inflicting trauma on the young for the sake of political power.  A sure sign of trauma is the inability to have a reasoned debate where two parties can exchange views without triggering emotional reactions.

So here we are; we now live in a world where the Left has become the establishment; yet the miseducation and cognitive dissonance is so bad that Leftists continue to imagine that they are the minority and are still locked in perpetual warfare against the man.  They still have not realised they have become the man and the people they fight are the ones who would save them; the only remaining sane, sensible individuals who wonder if its worth all the hassle.

Because whilst the left has effectively dominated the culture for the last 30 years they have lost so thoroughly in the realm of ideas they dare not have a factual debate.  Leftism wherever it has been tried has not just failed……but failed spectacularly.  In non Westernized countries this failure typically resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of people; the true count is too horrifying to contemplate.

In Western countries leftism has resulted in a slow decline, mainly because for every period of governance by the left; a period of non-left government has slowed that decline….occasionally reversed it temporarily….but generally has never quite managed to stop it entirely.

There is no doubt leftist ideas are deader than the dodo.  However the zombies of the left still hunger for power so can never admit their failure.  Anyone who does so is instantly devoured by the other zombies around them.

What is also interesting is that the Left is now starting to lose their grip on the culture.  In fact what we are seeing is the early stages of a complete reversal in the culture wars.  The Right is now taking back the culture one mouthful of the elephant at a time….and the Left is panicking.

The Left no longer knows how to debate so they are continuing to apply the same smear tactics that have worked for the past 30 years.  To their horror; calling someone a racist, sexist, homophobe is no longer winning them the argument.

Those of us at the birth of this cultural swing back to sanity do not care, do not explain and get on with our lives and are greatly enjoying the discomfort of those on the Left.  In fact those tactics are boomeranging back onto the Left.

Suffice to say the Left has lost the culture.  It is swinging back to normality and sanity as each day the media parasite class reveals itself completely out of touch of mainstream Australia.

However, Leftists still hold a great deal of power.  We know they will not go down without a fight….and we know they would rather rules over the ruins of a nation than for every man, woman & child to prosper.

The Left has lost.  It is now a question of whether they take us all down with them.  That is the only danger remaining in the country.  Leftists are so desperate to cling to power that they will create any wedge, break any law, destroy the country even if it just means that they get to hold onto the reigns of power for a day longer.

The current trends are not good.  If I were a betting man I do not believe that this country will be saved from leftism.  Does that mean victory for leftists?  Hardly.  When leftism wins the day what usually happens is that everyone (left or right) loses excepting for the small clique of leaders that hold power and pretend to represent the masses.

Most of those leftists hurling abuse, calling people names, being triggered by imaginary offensive terms and protesting normal people are destined to be the biggest losers if the Left wins permanent power.  Leftist ideology has always been a trick played on the masses by a small clique of wannabee leaders.

I intend to play my part doing what one person can to save the country, spread some sane ideas, and if nothing else can be done to at least leave a personal record of one person’s experience of the decline of one of the great nations in world history.

I intend to fully enjoy the discomfort that the leftist parasite classes are experiencing as they fail to understand that their cultural grip has gone forever.  I will also enjoy the discomfort experienced by the useful idiots of the left whose inability to think has left them only with triggered emotions.

In the end so few people will really understand what the bloody hell happened.  For most people will scratch their heads in bewilderment that the perpetual leftist revolution failed again as they murmur to each other under cover of darkness:- what the bloody hell happened?
