Smearing opponents—the left’s modus operandi

Smearing opponents is not only a left-wing value; it is the left’s modus operandi. And the reason for that is: The left does not win through argument. It wins through smear. If you differ with the left, you are, by definition, sexist, racist, bigoted, intolerant, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic, fascist and/or a hater.

The proof? You cannot name a single opponent of the left who has not been so labeled.

Resisting the sodomites, leftists, and compromisers

This is why you cannot compromise with leftists or cede your position based on their arguments. They do not want to come to an understanding—they want obedience. That’s all they will accept. Make one concession and they’ll demand another, and another, and another, unto infinity.

If you let up on the rightness of your fundamental position—in this case, that homosexuality is a perversion and gay marriage is an abomination—then you’ll quickly discover that you’ve let up on your right to hold that position. I suspect the next step will be the revocation of tax-exempt status for religious entities that do not amend their doctrines to make sodomy and same-sex “marriage” morally righteous.

Churches and religious organizations who do not strike Romans 1:26–28, Jude 1:5–8, 1 Timothy 1:8–11, Mark 10:6–9, 1 Corinthians 7:2, and many other passages from the Bible will be subject to financial and tax penalties that will cripple most of them. Once that is complete, the full, Roman-style persecution will begin in earnest.

If there will be any silver lining when that day arrives, it will be final separation of the wheat from the chaff. I suspect we’ll discover quite a lot of chaff. But the few Christians who remain steadfast in their faith, even as it is outlawed and its adherents subjected to all manner of indignities, can at least look around at one another and know they are finally in the company of true believers.

The tight link between political correctness and leftism

So there you have a baker’s dozen of politically incorrect statements…

Now what do they have in common in virtue of which they are all instances of political incorrectness? The most important common feature is that each opposes the contemporary liberal or leftist or ‘progressive’ worldview.

To be politically correct, then, is to support the leftist worldview and the leftist agenda. It follows that a conservative cannot be politically correct. P.C. comes from the C.P. The P.C. mentality is a successor form of the Communist mentality. To be politically correct is to toe the party line. It is to support leftist positions and tactics, including the suppression of the free speech rights of opponents.

Essential to leftism is the double standard. So while the politically correct insist on their own free speech rights, they deny them to their opponents, which is why they routinely shout them down.

The unsettling tendency of the totalitarian left

The left tends toward the totalitarian. And every totalitarian ideology seeks to weaken the bonds between children and parents. The left seeks to dilute parental authority and replace it with school authority and government authority.

When the left says tolerance, it means coercion

With all this power, the left controls more and more of the life of the American citizen. And when nothing stops the left, the left doesn’t stop.

Take tolerance…

For the left, tolerance does not mean tolerance. It means first, acceptance. And second, celebration. That is totalitarianism: You not only have to live with what you may differ with, dear citizen, you have to celebrate it or pay a steep price.

Leftist narrative is everything—and truth be damned

Officer Darren Wilson was not indicted for a very good reason: there was simply no case again him. He was assaulted by the thuggish Michael Brown who had just robbed a convenience store and roughed up its proprietor. Brown then proceeded to walk in the middle of the road, which of course is illegal. Wilson, doing his job, ordered him out of the road and then Brown went on the attack, initiating a physical altercation with the cop and trying to wrest his weapon from him. Outside the car, a bit later, Brown rushed the cop and the cop had no choice but to shoot him dead. The cop did it by the book. Everything he did was legal. And morally permissible.

But leftists do not care what the actual facts are, because, again, they do not care about truth. What actually happened in Ferguson is ignored because it does not comport with the ‘narrative’ according to which racist white cops shoot down “unarmed black teenagers.”

For a leftist, the narrative is everything and truth be damned. Leftists claim to want justice, but without truth there can be no justice.

The naive reality of leftist political solutions

And the basically good people who are the Leftist voters are angry too, for different reasons, so they don’t think things through or pay much attention to detail either, and as a result, they will often be lured into voting for some unscrupulous Leftist politician who promises to fix everything—but who is sufficiently involved in politics to know deep down that the cure will be worse than the disease.

But if offering false hope gets the leader/activist into a position of power and glory, too bad! And the poor old conservative who knows how things work and says that there is no easy fix will be ignored—and called “heartless”.
