Liberals Democrats Progressives Are Liars By Choice

Liberals, democrats and progressives (there is virtually no distinction between the three) have been telling anyone who would listen just what they are for the last sixty years. People like me have been calling them out, nearly always as lone voices in the wilderness. Not until the arrival of the internet and now, “alternative media” (a term intended to belittle) have we had a platform that extended beyond the range of our voices. I, and many of you who read this, make use of this platform now. This is as it should be. Since the left is unrelenting in its desire to destroy America as it was founded, so must we be relentless in Americas defense.

No longer in control of what you and I see and hear the left has only one weapon left, the big lie. (They also love intimidation but that is another article) It is a weapon they employ with wild eyed and often reckless abandon. No subject is safe from the big lie but lets limit ourselves to one for the moment.

Consider the most famous holiday established by a liberal democrat progressive who hacked to death his girlfriend, Earth Day. How many lies must be believed to support this killer and his environmental agenda? More than I am willing to contemplate yet the effort on the “green” side has been going on for a long time.

On that first Earth Day in 1970, George Wald, a Harvard biologist breathlessly promised that civilization would end “within 15 or 30 years.” Um, hello George, have you looked around lately?

Deservedly forgotten Democratic Senator Gaylord Nelson, also in 1970, grimly informed us that within 25 years 75% to 80% of all animals on Earth would be extinct. Given the number of critters that routinely patrol my three quarters of an acre I’m going to have to disagree with you there Gaylord.

Former science adviser to the Kenyan little Barry John Holdren, in a 1971 ecology textbook, promised that 1 billion would die because of famines by the year 2020 because of a “new ice age.” Odd, it has been in the 90’s here all week, just like last year and the year before that and the year before that and, well I’m sure you get the point.

In 1972 The Club of Rome warned us that the Earth would be out of oil by 2003. Funny thing is that 2016 estimated oil reserves currently stand at 1,707 billion barrels. When I filled up my gas guzzling Dodge Durango RT (the one with the really big V8 engine) this morning I paid $2.28 a gallon. It’s not the .32 cents a gallon I remember as a kid but it’s not intolerable either.

Not to be outdone, so called population expert Paul Ehrlich warned that by the year 2000 England would not exist. As a proof of concept he wrote the manifestly discredited book The Population Bomb. I’m going to give Paul a halfsie here. England may not long exist but it is dying of moslem political correctness not environmental excess. There is not much great in great Britain any longer.

And so it has continued every day since. A non stop denial of reality by eco fascists that has lasted, if you use the first Earth Day as a measuring point, for 47 years. How many people will believe a lie that has been told to them for 47 years?

Apparently a lot. Consider South Australia. People who live there now suffer through routine blackouts and energy prices that have exploded to unimaginable levels. Energy prices are at levels now that wipe out savings and crush businesses. Remember, Australia is a first world country. I know, I have been there. Their suffering is needless. The entire country is fossil fuel rich.

Safely ensconced in their air conditioned, red wood decked homes the government has hijacked its people into third world status to show just how virtuous they are. The suffering of their people, the number of birds and bats chewed up by their wind turbined idols to political correctness, are completely irrelevant. They care more than you do about the planet. Get over it already.

I am using the environmental positions of democrats, liberals and progressives to illustrate that lying in the face of evidence, no matter how incontrovertible, is second nature to them. The subject of the lie is irrelevant. Big oil, big pharma, big candy, the Iraq war, gun control, religious intolerance of Christians, republican/Russian collusion, islam, abortion and a hundred others are simply a means to an end. The only thing that matters to them is the path to complete control over you and your life.

At this point the observant reader will say that sailor, you are painting with a very broad brush. While I agree there are some liberals, progressives and democrats who are sincerely seeking only the best for themselves and the planet, it has to be pointed out that these people are a minority. Let us not forget that for the better part of sixty years the big lies have been promoted from college on down, from hollywood to the so called news media.

It is this cadre of “intellectuals” that seek to manage our daily lives in the most minute detail. To reach their objective they need a lot of foot soldiers. College, for the last fifteen years or so, has existed primarily to provide supplemental cannon fodder for the left. Unions with their shrinking membership are no longer able to do it all. The left now has two full generations of often well meaning but completely misguided “college educated” activists. (Now you know why they insist on everyone getting a free college education) I’m sure you know them. They carry a mattress on their back to indict an innocent student or they barge into a restaurant and stage a bloody beheading in front of little kids. They call for “muscle” to remove journalists from their rallies, demand racially segregated “safe” spaces and white free days on campus. They see white marble as racist and black thugs as victims. What should frighten, wrong word, terrify everyone is that these people are not considered out of the mainstream in liberal, progressive democratic thought.

These are the people who have to check in with the Ministry of Truth everyday to find out what they believe. Facts bounce off these people the way job offers bounce off welfare queens. The proper position of anyone listening to a liberal, progressive or democrat is outright skepticism, after you finish laughing in their faces. Just remember these people have no sense of humor and they hate you. If you have to be around them I recommend extreme caution and carrying pepper spray.

Perspective and Context

Finally, tax season is over! The feeling of relief surging through me is difficult to explain but as real as it gets. I can now devote more of my time to writing about things that, to me at least, matter.

After sixteen years doing taxes for the largest retail tax preparation company around you learn how to listen to people instead of just hearing people talk. I’m certain my listening skills were further developed during my stint as an armed security officer. As one of my Chief Petty Officers in the Navy used to say, “The best weapon/tool you will ever employ is between your ears.” He was so right it is scary. People will nearly always tell you exactly what they want or what their issue is if you know how to listen. Take the “mainstream” media for example.

To an objective observer it is painfully clear nearly every source of news pushes its ideological perspective. Little or no context or perspective is included in the “news” today. News without perspective and context is not news, it is simple propaganda. Nearly all news today fits that description. For the record I exclude those purveyors of news/opinion who clearly identify themselves as such, (Me, Rush, The Blaze and even one of my long time favorites, Paul Harvey.) The organization/person who clearly identifies his ideology may also provide news but the reader/listener/viewer can evaluate such news through the filter of the presenters known bias. Those who present ideology as unbiased news or fact and deny doing so (ABC, NBC, CBS, N.Y. Times, Time, Moveon, Salon etc) are simple propagandists and should be clearly labeled as such.

Black Lives Matters is a prime example of an ideology desperate to avoid perspective or context. Does anyone really believe todays average inner city dwelling black man with his government sponsored apartment, ability to travel at will, generous EBT card, free health care, $200 Air Jordans, cable fed 42inch flatscreen tv, $600 Iphone booming out the latest in rap music and free legal counsel is worse off than he would have been as a slave a 160 plus years ago? These “poor” black men risk being killed by their black brothers at a rate orders of magnitude higher than they would have been exposed to as a slave. But, but I hear the peanut gallery exploding, slavery is evil and wrong. Indeed it is and no sane person would argue otherwise but there are some basic facts, perspective if you will, that BLM and their endorsers either do not or will not accept.

At slavery’s height only 1.6% (interestingly that is also the same percentage of Americans that identify as homersexual, I wonder if there is a correlation) of southerners owned a slave. The fact is that outside of plantation life few southerners had any direct experience with slavery. Does that make the evil of slavery any less then? Of course not but it does provide a level of context concerning slavery that undermines BLM’s very existence. But, but the peanut gallery gasps, what about racism? Just because you didn’t own a slave doesn’t mean you weren’t racist. That is true as far as it goes but honestly, it doesn’t go very far. How then do the BLM race baiters explain the thousands of publicly known Abolitionists (and thousands more who remained hidden from public view) in the south that worked diligently and bravely to end slavery? There were certainly many men of wealth who chose not to own slaves. Were these folks racist also?

But, but the peanut gallery explodes, wasn’t the worth of a black man set as three-quarters of a man? To believe that one must remain ignorant of history and avoid factual context at all costs. The three-quarters number was a method devised for the purposes of limiting the number of House Members in congress from the southern states. If slaves had been counted individually the north would have been, politically speaking, outvoted regularly by the southern states. The three-quarters “rule” was a simple math solution to balance political power. It was never engendered as an actual measure of worth. That was a lie told in the Gobbels tradition, long and loud.

But, but the peanut gallery interjects passionately, that was then, this is now! BLM claims that even today blacks are routinely executed by police. While it is not difficult to argue with someone so comfortable in their delusion that reality takes a back seat it does sometimes get tiresome. I wonder sometimes if such people have just decided to be stupid longer than I can be reasonable, thus “winning” by default. Still, according to the Justice Department cops kill nearly twice as many whites as blacks every year. I guess the police have not gotten the memo about killing the “wrong” color people.

But, but, the peanut gallery whispers sincerely, seemingly desperate to prove some point, any point, no matter how small, of their ideology correct. Blacks are routinely given more traffic tickets than whites. That “proves” racism by law enforcement. Well, its true there are stupid people in every group but I believe law enforcement weeds them out faster than most. Still, perspective blows this “tragedy” into the overflowing dust bin of stupid liberal ideas. According to a study commissioned by the New Jersey Attorney General and later leaked to The New York Times, blacks make up 16% of the drivers on the Jersey Turnpike but 25% of the speeders in the 65-mph zones. In the study a speed camera was set up. The sole purpose of the camera was to photograph cars passing it recording both the driver and the vehicles speed. The number of blacks photographed speeding was nearly identical, as a percentage, to the number of tickets issued to black speeders. To your average BLM type this proves only that speed cameras are racist.

The keystone in the destruction of context and perspective is the overriding and fiercely burning desire of liberals and progressives to erase history and replace it with their preferred narrative. Few examples better illustrate this than the flap over the Confederate flag. The Confederate Battle flag, popularly known as the stars and bars, was never the official flag of the confederacy. The simple fact is that the “national” flag adopted by the southern states looked so much like the American flag that soldiers on both sides suffered serious confusion under the stress of battle. The confederacy adopted the stars and bars as a battle flag to eliminate that confusion. A symbol of racism? In a tertiary sense perhaps but to the student of history and the vast majority of the confederate army it was just a symbol of states rights.

Even so, it is not just ideologies or symbols that must be deprived of context and perspective. People too must be sterilized, sanitized or even eliminated from history. Such a fate has befallen one of my earliest heros. His name was Milton Friedman and he won a Noble Prize in Economics. Precious few “college” students even know his name. Those who dare bring him up as a defender of capitalism routinely hear him being derided as the crazy old uncle every family has. Nothing could be farther from the truth. His brilliant and simply explained destruction of every tenant held dear by liberals, progressives, communists, socialists and social justice warriors made him the all time public enemy number one. To understand just how potent a threat he was to the aforementioned busybodies you should watch him on Youtube. Prepare to be amazed.

Today Ivy League and city colleges are filled to the brim with well-indoctrinated perspective and context free automatons given the tragically inappropriate name of student. This is a generation that has accomplished nothing more than the perfection of narcissism, self-absorption, mindless entertainment and the abandonment of virtually everything that made America the greatest country in the history of the planet. This generation is so devoid of actual accomplishment that they must make up tragedies to overcome. Micro aggressions, mansplaining or safe spaces anyone? On some level I believe these purveyors of social justice sense the destruction they have wrought. I believe this explains their passion and devotion to their frankly insane ideologies. They seek, on some level, to absolve their guilty consciences by riding their white horses to the rescue of, insert your favorite grievance here.

To these thin skinned heros of the revolution context and perspective are dreadful impediments that must be overcome, banned and discredited. No safe space can harbor intellectually honest perspective and context. The twin evils of perspective and context require thought and after all, thinking today is a lot harder than it should be. Thus it must be this way because perspective and context destroys the current popular narrative. Whether it’s the war on women, religious freedom, global warming, terrorism, gay rights, the cult of islam, gun control, equal pay for women, transgender equality, Planned Parenthoods mythical mammograms or the neighborhood pedophiles right to use the bathroom/shower of his choice, perspective and context must eliminated.

As one of the leaders of their revolution Hillary Clinton once said, “We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.” Glad we got that straight.

The Art of the Hoax

This is not an article about Donald Trump. Sorry about that.

Having studied liberals/progressives for the better part of thirty-five years I can say with a great deal of certainty that the majority of them live in various stages of denial. Thus, they are often great believers in or promoters of hoaxes. Not necessarily because they are bad people (this excludes those in major leadership positions, ninety-eight percent of journalists and virtually every elected democrat. Theirs is a special sort of vileness.) but because in their artificially constructed world the truth really is inconvenient. These people prefer the certainty of illusion. Lets examine some examples of liberal “truth.”

Ahmed the “clock” boy.

Doing his best mild mannered Clark Kent impersonation Ahmed, while hiding behind his NASA shirt and glasses tells everyone, “I’m the person who built a clock and got in trouble with it.” He insists the clock was his own “invention.” Well, not exactly.

Thomas Talbot, an electronics expert posted a Youtube video shortly after Ahmeds clock was made public that shows pretty conclusively Ahmed did not actually build his “clock”. According to Talbot it seems extremely likely that Ahmed simply removed some existing components from a standard digital alarm clock. Talbot maintains that Ahmed just removed the original clocks plastic case and attached the clocks internal parts to the inside of a suitcase.

“This child, nothing against him personally, never built a clock,” said Talbot in the video. “He did not invent a clock or build it, and I’m going to show you why. … What this is is a commercial alarm clock, as you would purchase in any department store and use at your bedside. All he did was remove the plastic case from the alarm clock. This is not an invention. This is not something that someone built or even assembled.”

A concurring opinion, of sorts, comes from Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks. He called and tried to talk with Amed. He explained to Bill Marher how the conversation went this way, “We talked about science, but while I’m talking to him on the phone, as I ask him a question, ‘Tell me what happened because I’m curious.’ Right? His sister, over his shoulder, you could hear, listening to the question, giving him the answer.” Clark Kent unable to speak for himself? Say it ain’t so!

What follows can only be described as the second act of a badly written play. Despite being notified they can collect the “clock”, Ahmeds militant islamic parents made a huge public display of hiring lawyers to sue the police to get their sons “invention” back. Their claim that a bigoted police department will not return the device rings hollow in the face of the truth.

So what actually happened? The facts we know are these. There was no science fair at the school in the week before, during or after Ahmed brought his device to school. His first excuse died instantly. Mr. Talbot demonstrated that Ahmed did not actually build a clock. This makes Ahmed untruthful. When he brought his “invention” to school he was told to put it away and not take it to any other classes. He then took it to six classes. This makes him disobedient. When asked about his device he refused to answer any questions. This makes him suspicious. Are these enough of a reason to be arrested on their own? Not necessarily, but consider this. In the minds of school administrators and law enforcement it was quite possible that Ahmeds “clock” was nothing more than the timer for a bomb held by someone else. His behavior to the point when he was arrested was, I believe, designed by his militant islamic father to foster that illusion in the hopes that someone would over react. Fortunately no one fell for the bait.

If you doubt that there is an islamic overtone to this story consider this. Eyman Mohamed, Ahmed’s 17-year-old sister, is running Ahmed’s social media campaign. She is desperately trying to portray him as a victim of anti-Muslim stereotyping. Perhaps Ahmed is simply following in his big sisters footsteps. Seems big sis was suspended for her own bomb threat at another school.

The hoax, that Ahmed was targeted because he is a muslim, is patently obvious. Yet liberal/progressives feel it must be perpetrated. I believe Ahmed is guilty of many things, the least of which is possessing a hoax bomb. Texas law provides that, “a person is guilty of possessing a hoax bomb if he possesses a device that is intended to cause anyone to be alarmed or a reaction of any type by law enforcement officers.” Ahmed should be prosecuted because someone needs to teach him responsibility. I also believe he and his siblings are victims of malicious islamic brainwashing by their parents. In my world that’s child abuse.

The Popes little girl.

In a carefully staged moment of authenticity little Sophie Cruz somehow managed to wade through Papal security and wrap an arm around the Popes neck. So concerned about immigration was this little five year old that she also delivered a letter expressing her desire that her mother, father and millions of other illegal aliens are allowed to remain in the USA.

Like any good hoax this one was carefully planned, staged and executed. Having pulled off a similar public-relations stunt in Rome using a 10-year-old girl a coalition of Los Angeles-based immigration rights groups decided to try and duplicate their success. Being well-trained little Sophie refused to leave the Popes side until a bodyguard took her handwritten letter and a T-shirt. Had she failed in this attempt the group would have taken her to New York and, if needed, Philadelphia to try again. Lets be honest here, from a propaganda perspective, this was brilliant. Even so, it was still a hoax.

Juan Jose Gutierrez of the purposely misnamed Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition, one of the hoaxes planners, told the AP, “We planned to do this from the moment we learned he was coming to the States.” He continues, “We have been working for a while now trying to sensitize the American public that dealing with immigration is not just dealing with the people who came in without proper documents but that we also have … countless children whose parents are undocumented.” As if somehow illegal aliens choosing to break the law and then have children is now the taxpayers responsibility. Sophie is correct in that she has the right to live with her parents, not in America but in the country they abandoned. Everything else in this story is just part of the hoax.

Black lives matter.

As a purveyor of hate I can think of no group that got so famous, so entrenched and so accepted so fast as BLM. Wedded to hoaxes like “hands up don’t shoot”, or the white-hispanic in the Martin case, BLM is just another a hate group advocating violence based on nothing more than skin color. BLM types probably still believe the Twana Brawley hoax and that their spiritual leader “Calypso Louie” Farrakhan still talks to the mothership (Yes, Louie actually admitted to that) orbiting over the North Pole.

As a first generation American (my mother immigrated here legally as a child) I feel no guilt for things done in Americas past. Neither should you. No one should feel guilt based on hoaxes. But, but, I hear someone gasping in an effort to attempt to prove me wrong. Before you call me racist, insensitive or any other name used to divert attention from the issue at hand, consider the following facts.

It was blacks in eighteenth and nineteenth century Africa that rounded up other blacks and sold them into slavery.

The first slave owner in America was a black man who went to court to defend his right to own slaves.

Every black ghetto in America is and has been run by democrats, some for as long as fifty years. (Being attracted to ghettos, militant islamic types are flocking to Detroit, but that is another story)

By sometimes as much as two to one, more whites are shot and killed by cops every year than blacks.

On far too many occasions blacks cheerfully rioted and looted their own neighborhoods in support of the hoax of the day.

According to the Justice Department the greatest threat to a black man is another black man.

Black babies are the single largest percentage of babies aborted by the hideously misnamed Panned Parenthood.

There are dozens more inconvenient facts like the above but I hope you can see the trend. Black lives it seems only matter when money, votes or the ability to obtain a free big screen TV are involved.

Oklahoma City.

Some twenty years ago when Timothy McVeigh blew up Oklahoma City many liberals and progressives accused McVeigh of being part of the Christian vanguard attempting to “take over” the USA. (Obviously they have never read any of the founding documents.) In fact, and that fact was soon known, McVeigh was an atheist who was quoted saying, “Science is my god.” Good progressives ignored the unsettling realization that in that regard McVeigh was as much a liberal as they were. The hoax, the idea of a Christian attempt to take over the country was too juicy to pass on. The hoax makers would not be denied.

And so it goes, on and on and on. Matthew Shepard, gun control, minimum wage, the Duke Lacrosse team, the religion of peace, the college campus rape epidemic, health care reform, intolerance towards homosexuals, planned parenthood, global warming etc. There is no area safe from the liberal/progressive hoaxsters. In some respects one simply has to admire the creativity involved in creating and the energy used in maintaining and spinning these and the hundreds of other liberal/progressive hoaxes now accepted as gospel in the religion of liberal/progressivism. I can’t help but wonder how many real problems could be solved if liberal/progressives would dedicate just half of that energy to some of the real problems in the world.

It is also impressive to see just how hard so many good intentioned people will fight to defend the indefensible. No amount of reason, truth or evidence will budge the good liberal/progressive from their ideologically pure position. Their faith in their hoax is every bit a resolute as the Christians is in God. Tell a liberal/progressive that and, pardon the expression, holy hell is likely to break loose. The tirade of liberal/progressive indignation does nothing to refute the truth but having soundly brow beaten you, they feel much better about themselves.

The fact is that liberal/progressives need hoaxes. With the truth so seldom on their side the only options left to them are outright denial of reality or the creation of a clever, agenda driven hoax. Denial often makes one look rigid and inflexible or, as liberals/progressives like to say, like a conservative. A hoax on the other hand allows liberal/progressives to exercise their other dominate tendency, the end justifies the means. Because only they know what the rules of the hoax are they are, by definition, better and smarter than you. The ego boost of being the smartest person in the room must be tremendous. On the other hand, a clearly defined hoax removes the need to think, freeing up the liberal/progressive mind for more important things like looking for micro-aggressions.

In the hottest part of hell, Joseph Gobbels just texted Adolph Hitler. “Am watching the American liberals and LMAO!!!!”
