The broad Left, whether it be Liberal, Socialist or what have you likes to tell everyone, including themselves how nice they are. How tolerant, open and loving they are, how they represent a new positive future open to everyone. However, if your like me and your not on the Left, you get to experience something about them that they never advertise. And that is how intolerant, close minded and hateful their past, present and future really is.
They haven't changed since the French Revolution, they always talk about the bright future that you can vaguely see on the horizon. They say it's a new dawn and we keep pointing out that it's an illusion and the Left really resent it. Although whether they resent us being right or us existing is open to debate. Because one thing they really don't understand is other peoples viewpoints. I am reminded of a quote from William F. Buckley, Jr. "Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.". You don't need to travel very far to encounter this view. You can go into any Left of centre chat room or put up a Facebook post that your "tolerant" "friend" see's. You can get into a discussion at work or at a party or even within your own family and there it is, that claim about how they love and how we hate, how they are tolerant and how we are intolerant. But what happens when you tell them that they are wrong?
Well all that love and tolerance just seems to vanish. They don't listen to your arguments, they don't respect you and they really really don't love you. It's as if they just use those things to make themselves sound better than they are. But there are three reasons why they use this line of attack.
1. They like to think of themselves as good people.
2. It is used to make others think that they are good people who always think of others before themselves.
3. How do you argue against someone who "loves"?
In reality all of this is simply a weapon, the Left tries to turn everything into a weapon. The Left believes that they can create a perfect world and that everyone who opposes them is evil because they stand in the way of that perfect world. You are evil, I am evil....according to the Left, so don't worry that means your probably not evil. Of course you might be evil, after all the Left call so many people evil, their bound to get it right once in a while simply by accident. But if your evil, or at least they believe that you are evil then they don't need to listen to your opinion because the evil opinion of an evil person is always wrong. But for the good of anyone standing nearby and they believe for your own good, they label you. You might be, Racist, Sexist, Homophobic, Islamophobic, Fascist, Nazi but whatever they label you, whatever name they call you remember it's because they love and you hate!
But when everyone who disagrees with you is (insert nasty name) the truth is they stop caring about being called nasty names. Think about this quote from Peter Brimelow of vdare.com who wrote this
"What I did not anticipate was that this continued vilification has resulted (in) a younger generation of Americans, who 71 years after the end of World War II, are clearly indifferent to accusations of Nazism, even if just out of bravado. This, too, is the fault of the Left and the gatekeepers of our public debate."
How indifferent? This indifferent!
When mild and reasonable opinions are treated just as extreme and unreasonable opinions are, there is no incentive to be mild or reasonable. The Left are creating the very extreme attitudes and opinions they profess to abhor. But when have the Left taken any notice of consequences?
They believe that there is no such thing as consequences on the road to Utopia, but like so much else they are going to find out that that ain't true at all.
