  • Evan Sayet’s Unified Field Theory of Modern Liberalism

    No one grasps the essence of moonbattery like Evan Sayet, who understands that a moonbat will “invariably and inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right, the lesser over the better, the ugly over the beautiful, the profane over the profound, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success.” This isn’t an accident; this preference is baked right into liberal ideology, as Sayet explains:

    It occurred to me the other day that in spite of a bad back and his marriage vows, JFK chased everything in skirts; that Gary Hart allowed his libido to sink his political career; that even nerdy Jimmy Carter confessed to having lust in his heart, although nobody in recorded history has ever been so silly or sanctimonious as to suggest that lust resided anywhere above the belt; and that Bill Clinton, like a spooky version of Mr. Rogers, patiently explained to America’s kids that oral sex isn’t really sex. With all that in mind, doesn’t it strike you as...

    For years, conservatives have been claiming that conservatism is dying in America. That isn’t true. Actually, liberalism is dying in America. But, unfortunately, it is being replaced by another ideology far more dangerous than liberalism. After you consider the following issues, I hope you will join me in an act of self-censorship that will culminate in a lifetime commitment to refrain from calling Democrats “liberals.” Instead, I would urge the use of the more appropriate term “statist.” Abortion. For years, many have mistakenly dubbed the pro-choice position as a “liberal” position. Clearly, it is not. It is certainly true that...

      October 31, 2007, 0:00 a.m. Conservative Buzz KillLiberals have an inherent advantage. By Jonah Goldberg Conservatives, much like liberals and independents — as well as anarchists, Marxists, flat-Earthers and every other creedal crowd — all think they’re right. It’s axiomatic: Why hold one position if you think another viewpoint is better? The trouble for conservatives, much like the problem faced by those other groups, is that their worldview isn’t overwhelmingly popular. Oh, conservatism is more popular than a lot of things we call popular these days; more people call themselves conservatives than Red Sox fans, for instance. But...

    The following is a commentary from the Truth and Hope Report (http://www.truthandhope.2truth.com) Weekend update by Democratic Political Analyst Dave Screwtape Father's Day is a happy day of celebration for some people. For others, it's a day when their guilt gets the better of them and they buy the man a tie and place a phone call in order to feel less guilty about a year of neglect. For some, Father's Day is a source of pain because of abusive or absent fathers. My general opinion is that Father's Day is hooey. I didn't have a father around growing up, and...

    Feminists cower in fear at the picture, the symbol, and the meaning of a strong father today. Actually atheists, Marxists, leftists, and liberals all do as well but with feminists it’s a particularly pronounced phenomenon. What a strong father represents to this time, life, and world has never been more underestimated and modern feminists have taken it upon themselves to attempt to eliminate the need for them all together. It was one year ago this month, I sat in a hotel room in Denver before a major book seller's convention. I was preparing for a series of interviews slated that...

    Socialists have historically understood that in order to implement total government, which is what socialism is, institutions that foster freedom and individual independence would have to be weakened. Total government is, after all, against human nature, which is inclined toward individual rights, private ownership, belief in a divine creator, and the sovereignty of nation-states designed to preserve, protect, and defend those natural rights. Besides belief in God, private property, and private industry, the basic family unit is a bulwark of freedom and, therefore, an obstacle to socialism. Developed over millennia, conventional marriage has been universally respected as an essential institution....

    Dr. Thomas Sowell, a distinguished economist and longtime friend and colleague, recently wrote a series of columns under the title “A War of Words.” He pointed out that liberals succeed in duping the public because they are so clever with words that they give the appearance of compassion. Liberals talk about the need for “affordable” housing and health care. They tarnish their enemies with terms such as “price-gouging” and “corporate greed.” Uninformed and unthinking Americans fall easy prey to this demagoguery.Politicians exploit public demands that government ought to do something about this or that problem by taking measures giving them...

    While studying psychology in college, I read about an experiment on the pressure to conform. Several people sat around a long, rectangular table. The "instructor" and all but one person seated at the table were confederates in the experiment. The instructor held up a sheet of paper with a line drawn exactly six inches long. He then handed the sheet to a seated confederate and said, "Guess the length of this line." The man, as previously agreed, said, "About two inches." The paper then went clockwise around the table until it reached the only person not in on the experiment....

    The vocabulary of liberalism increasingly consists of a bunch of words from which any fixed meaning has been drained. Thus, to take but one current example, "follow a new direction in Iraq" actually means "surrender and go home," but liberals know the electorate is unlikely to buy this outcome if stated for what it is, so it has to be called something else. Hence the invention of pseudo-language. . . . But the ACRU will continue to fight back. And in that spirit, let me offer a few more entries to the Dictionary for the Politically Incorrect:

    Ann Coulter calls it treason, Tammy Bruce calls it 'malignant narcissism' and liberals call it patriotism. Call it what you will, but there is no denying the fact that hating America has replaced race as the all determining reality for many Americans. What would have been considered treason 40 years ago is now accepted as cutting edge commentary. Democrats appear to be rooting for defeat in Iraq as a way to defeat George Bush. Pundits routinely give terrorists the benefit of the doubt while excoriating America. Hollywood stars

    MOST ORDINARY PEOPLE do not fit very neatly into any political category and may hold to a mix of views that include what would usually be seen as both Leftist and Rightist ideas. Among professional politicians and academics, however, there is generally a clearer polarization. So what is it that makes any given view "Rightist" or "Leftist"? In contemporary North American terms, what is it that makes one an archetypical "liberal" or an archetypical "conservative"? What is a Leftist or a Rightist position on any issue? The division obviously is real and the demise of the great icon of Leftism...

    What constitutes the essence of modern liberalism? Conservatives will return to decisive victories only if we come to terms with liberalism’s visceral appeal. The best way to overcome our ideological adversaries is to understand their approach to major issues. While conservatives obsess over distinctions of right and wrong, and insist that inevitable consequences must flow from good and bad behavior (see last week’s column), liberals focus on differences of another sort entirely. The rhetoric of today’s left shows that they see society divided between the privileged and the powerless, the favored and the unfortunate, victors and victims.

It will be part of a book about taking back the West from moonbats to be published some day (maybe, if I ever finish it). Please feel free to add your own pithy additions which I will no doubt shamelessly steal without attribution. Happy Easter!The Liberal Canon All cultures are equal. One culture is less equal than others. Members of a minority are never responsible for their failures. Members of the majority are never responsible for their successes. Only the...

    Liberals are wrong about everything and have the mentality of kindergarteners, in the view of conservative comedian and commentator Evan Sayet. "The Democrats are wrong on quite literally every issue," Sayet said at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., on Monday. "They are not just wrong. They are as wrong as wrong can be. "It's not just domestic policy. It's foreign policy. It's every policy," he said, adding that liberals are "diametrically opposed to that which is good, right and successful." "The modern liberal will invariably side with evil over good, wrong over right, and the behaviors that lead to...

    The thing I like best about being a conservative is that I don’t have to lie. I don’t have to pretend that men and women are the same. I don’t have to declare that failed or oppressive cultures are as good as mine. I don’t have to say that everyone’s special or that the rich cause poverty or that all religions are a path to God. . . . I don’t have to pretend that Islam means peace.
