Skip to comments.I Finally Understand Democrats
Posted on 01/23/2012 7:43:13 PM PST by neverdem
After years of puzzlement and curiosity observing modern day Democrats, I think I have finally figured them out.
I'm constantly amazed that modern Democrats have evolved beyond living in caves. I mean what other animal on this planet can disregard all common sense and logic and survive? Scientists have recently discovered that even giant sea slugs that do not possess a brain as such can learn from past experiences. That puts them a leg up over the current crop of liberals in this country. I used to subscribe to the adage that liberalism was a mental disorder, but even Rainman would have a hard time buying into the standard mantra of the present day Democratic Party. In order to believe that Democrats have the answer today, you would have to believe:
That you can grow the entitlement class beyond the taxpayer class and never hit critical mass where there is no money left.
That using the military to oust a murderous thug dictator in 2003 was criminal, and using the military to oust a murderous thug dictator in 2011 was noble.
That the best way to grow the wealth of the private sector is to take all the money out of it.
That the best way to make us energy independent is to block any effort to produce more petrocarbons in this country.
That the best way to create jobs is to increase taxes and regulations on the job creators.
That the best way to stop arms from this country from getting into the hands of the drug cartels in Mexico is to provide arms to the drug cartels in Mexico.
That all the ills of the economy are due to the fat cat banks and other corporations, and the best way to deal with that is to provide billions...

It’s an infantile mental disorder - apologies to Lenin, who had the original quote.
Saul Alinsky, Cloward/Pivin, Antonio Gramsci, The Frankfort School... look ‘em all up. They are the Cultural Marxists/ totalitarian collectivists who formulated the tactics that form the intellectual basis of the assault on the Western World and its concept of individual freedom.
The Democrat leaders paint themselves as having good intentions, but like the old proverb, lead the others along the road to hell. They’re always clamouring for bigger government, but what do they always get instead? Overly oppressive government. In other words, there’s no end to what they have to complain about. It’s self-fulfilled.
Thanks for posting. Got a good chuckle out of this one, and emailed the link to a friend who will probably post it at her favorite site.
Insane? True, but mixed with a huge dose of just plain evil. I thought about getting into theology here, but it is not necessary. Even from an athiest view, their desire to dominate others is evil.
Liberalism is a boutique ideology... Shall I explain? It can only exist in mature societies that can survive on past growth while the bark hardens and rots. I have a son at Harvard right now, and he voted for Obama. He is smart, but intelligence is not why he supports liberalism. He supports the “cause” party because it makes him feel good and soothes his guilt. He drives a coal-burning electric car because it makes him “feel” like he is fixing the enviroment/earth/climate. When I ask him where the coal chute is at he looks puzzled. I’m sure he could figure it out, but that would require a desire to figure it out, which he does not possess. So far, Harvard has steadfastly avoided imbuing him with such critical thinking skills. I leave it to the reader to understand that.
Wow, this one is so true!!!
I sincerely hope you’re not paying the bill for his indoctrination.
They will always try again, they will never admit that whatever they want to do is a stupid idea.
That using the military to oust a murderous thug dictator in 2003 was criminal, and using the military to oust a murderous thug dictator in 2011 was noble.
Obama said the war in Iraq was a dumb war, and a waste of our resources. He was always in favor of going after Bin Laden and the people who actually attacked us. I tend to agree with this point.
Simple. Consider that ever since January 1989 when the "amiable dunce" left DC for his beloved ranch, with the US at the peak of world history, the country has been ruled exclusively by Ivy League einsteins--of both parties. And look where they have got us to in 23 years.
I struggle with my own kidlets with this - at least I’m not paying for a Haaaavaaad tuition. ;-)
This will be his second degree, so he’s paying for it. I did pay some for his first degree though, and he got a full dose of propoganda there, trust me. I don’t think he is as enamored of the annointed one now though, he finally pulled the Obama bumpersticker off of his car!
It frustrates him to no end when we discuss politics. He assumes that I can’t possibly withstand the force of his intellect, but I have over twenty years of training by the likes of Rush etc. He seldom challenges the old man anymore, and hopefully someday he’ll do an about face and come back into the light. Who knows? Regardless, he’s a good kid, just young and misguided. I tease him with the moniker “Crusader.”
Have him read “The Road to Serfdom” by Hayek.
or “Vision of the Annointed: Self-congratulation as a basis for social policy” by Sowell.
*LOVE* that title!
they can do nothing...they play at banking, play at trading..play at warrioring..play at building cars...play at doctoring...play at building and running trains...play at supplying energy....
I think the 2011 war he was referring to was the six-month bombing campaign we engaged in to overthrow Khadaffi, who didn’t attack us any more than Saddam Hussein.
Like Marie Antoinette playing at being a peasant... and the rest we all know.
Oh no! You mean to tell me liberals aren’t smart?
O baaaaaaa ma? It was all a ruse? Next thing you know, you’ll be telling me the smart Rinos put the stupid in the Stupid Party!
There is such a thing as evil genius. Liberals study history. They know the long history of blood shed, oppression and poverty brought about by the Leftist ideology they embrace. They know eugenics is genocide. They are blood thirsty “smart” people. They want to be the empowered killers. If you visit their web sites, you will see, they don’t hesitate to darkly warn of the need to kill a lot of refusniks in the New Age.
If we are cut off from outside sources, we can use our ingenuity to develop a new one, But windmills and solar panels are not the answer, nor is ethanol. The last is like the wood-burning cars that the Germans used after their oil sources were cut off. And speaking of cars, as if electric cars can exist without a fossil fuel using power system/atomic power. We dont have a spare ten years to let the electric car developers make up for 90 years of lack of development.
One of the comments was “The Democrats are the party of poverty”.
And I’d guess many Democrats would agree with that.
The thing is, a party that acquires its power from poverty isn’t going to commit suicide by championing wealth for the masses... The more poverty the party creates the larger its voter base and the more power it acquires.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.
I hope you aren’t paying for his “education.”
Some jackwagon was whining about global warming the other day in the kitchen of my office...he was talking about “deniers” and how anyone could watch Faux News.
You can’t help Communist, they are suicidal and insane.
The point was not about Bin Laden, who, while a murderous thug, was never a leader of any country. The point was about Moammar Gaddafi, who was the "murderous thug dictator" of Libya.

A link or two?
I knew Ayers had refused to repudiate his bloodthirsty "25,000,000" remark of 40 years ago .... and that nobody around him had repudiated it either, or him .....
Chilling thought, that he may have tons of agreement among the intelligentsia .... or "brights" as the overtly atheist among them (as opposed to slacker epiphenomenalist materialists) like to call themselves.
So it's "everyone different into the crematoria" now, is it? I think liberalism, now become Progressivism (Neo-Stalinism would be closer to it) may just have outlived its welcome in the USA.
ODE TO THE WELFARE STATE
Mr. Trumans St. Paul, Minn., pie-for-everybody speech last night reminded us that, at the tail-end of the recent session of Congress, Representative Clarence J. Brown (R-Ohio) jammed into the Congressional Record the following poem, describing its author only as A prominent Democrat of the State of Georgia.
Father, must I go to work?
No, my lucky son.
Were living now on Easy Street
On dough from Washington.
Weve left it up to Uncle Sam,
So dont get exercised.
Nobody has to give a damn
Weve all been subsidized.
But if Sam treats us all so well
And feeds us milk and honey,
Please, daddy, tell me what the hell
Hes going to use for money.
Dont worry, bub, theres not a hitch
In this here noble plan
He simply soaks the filthy rich
And helps the common man.
But, father, wont there come a time
When they run out of cash,
And we have left them not a dime
When things will go to smash?
My faith is shrinking in you, son,
You nosy little brat:
You do too damn much thinking, son,
To be a Democrat.
When you're talking about your standard sheeperal, the basis of their ideology is the transfer of consequences from those who make bad decisions to those who make prudent decisions or the entirely innocent. The welfare system & abortion are great examples of both of these.
Now, when you're talking about those who USE the "sheeperal" in order to get power, just read "You can still trust the communists to be communists" to understand them. Because that's what they are - communists.
Ditto on the books.
I suggest more of Sowell’s works, though.
Start with “Basic Economics”, “Applied Economics”, then “Conflict of Visions”, THEN “Vision of the Annointed”, followed by “Intellectuals” for the icing on the cake.
You're right - something about their desire to control and dominate others to the point of slavery... is evil.
Big government is attractive to those who think that THEY (or those in harmony with them) will be in control of it.
I do too, with one variation. We did not fight WW2 by going after the particular Japanese sailors who attacked Pearl Harbor, and the admiral who commanded them. We went after the people who SENT that fleet after us.
Yes, we got bin Ladin. Big deal. Who SENT bin Ladin? Who gave him shelter (Pakistan)? Who gave him financing and support (wealthy Muslims in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere). We got bin Ladin, but it was a hollow victory because, for political reasons, we ignored the people BEHIND bin Ladin.
So what was Libya all about?
They want to be the empowered killers. If you visit their web sites, you will see, they dont hesitate to darkly warn of the need to kill a lot of refusniks in the New Age.Well, you tickled my memory and sent me off in search of something I remembered from a while back. These people are leftists and their kind, if they have power, will exterminate anyone who gets in their way.
I asked, "well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?" and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say "eliminate," I mean "kill." Twenty-five million people. I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people. And they were dead serious. - Larry Grathwohl, former member of the Weather Underground (FBI infiltrator)
One of any number of personal times of being on the “we want you dead” end of a liberal is when respectfully standing for life at an abortion “clinic” the daughter of the abortionist posted signs on the tree and fence that said “Where are the lions when you need them”.
“...at an abortion clinic the daughter of the abortionist posted signs on the tree and fence that said Where are the lions when you need them.
Elitists (limo-fascists) are meeting in Davos this week to discuss the end of Western “capitalism” and to decide what comes next. China has a better model, they beleive since we are broke and China is not. I guess they have shaken down the US Treasury and the American people for all we are worth so now it is time to “bring change” and make us into Chinese slaves. They will bring in the lions because Christian Americans won’t tolerate forced abortion for population control. Hold onto your hat!
Here is one link with a formal proposal of death. The “smart” watermelons are very serious about reducing their earth’s population and have many ideas for their dirty work.
John Holdren, Obama White House Czar
“ Some conservative media outlets have called attention to a book Holdren co-authored in 1977 titled Ecoscience: Population, Resources, and Environment. The book reportedly includes this statement: “population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution.” Holdrens office says he “does not now and never has been an advocate of compulsory abortions or other repressive measures to limit fertility.”
I see the comments from leftists about killing their enemies (global warming deniers, pro lifers, bankers and wall street workers, Whites, Jews, “fundalmentalists”, conservatives, tea party “terrorists”, Republicans, Bush, Cheney, Palin and her children, police officers, military people, Jews, etc.) all the time when I follow them around the internet to study them. They exist in one dead end of Internet kookville and kind of overlap with the Paul “libertarians” and the NOI/Muslim crowd.
Homeland inSecurity has named the left’s social and political enemies domestic terrorists. Congress just gave Obama the power to kill and imprison domestic terrorists at will.
Another coven of left wingers in Internet kookville wishing for the dealth of their thought enemies are some New Agers. They think the alien will come and kill anyone who is not of a high consciencousness like they are. They are enviornmentalist of the mother earth worshiping variety, animal rights kooks, redistribute the wealthers... They think people who disagree with them are unevolved, dangerous animals. (I don’t save links to their comments. They are pretty disgusting.)
Some of the gay lefties are bloody as heck. They wanna kill Christians and anyone who is not celebrating and wanting to socially engineer life around their sex thing. Some express the desire to harm (rape and murder) the children of Christians. I know I guy who worked against them in public school “progress”, who got such threats against his children on his home phone recorder.
There are real witches, too, who are blood thirsty. Some of them express the desire for God, Jesus and all their beleivers be murdered. For some atheists, all people are economic units, perfectly disposable when they are not economicially viable/useful to “society.” Obama has this philosphy and incorporated it into his health care bill.
