Skip to comments.The Nihilism of the Left

The Czech writer Joseph Skvorecky once asked the following question: Has there even been a case in history of a political system collapsing overnight, not as an aftermath of a lost war or bloody revolution but from its own inner rottenness? To answer the question posed by Skvorecky, one need only observe the current state in which we find our country today. The nation has been debilitated by the onslaught wrought by the left and their totalitarian ideology which has been implemented with little to no opposition from the right. The left has been successful in bringing about their vision of a classless society, a society not of equal opportunity, but of equal condition even though that vision contradicts human nature itself.
To understand the left, writes Daniel Greenfield, you need to remember that it does not care about 99 percent of the things it claims to care about. Gay rights only matter in that those of the militant gay community can be used by the left as a weapon to destroy religious people and institutions that do not conform. Civil rights only matter in so far that the left can use their various activist mobs, fixated on inanimate objects such as a flag, to fuel racial unrest and propagate the illusion that racism is rampant and in our DNA. The left, fights all sorts of social and political battles not because it believes in them, but to radicalize, disrupt and take power, writes Greenfield. This is why you cant find common ground with the left. As Greenfield notes, it is an activist machine dedicated to destroy common ground, not only with the right, but even with its own allies on the left. Progress turns what was once progressive into what is reactionary. And what was reactionary into what is progressive the left will destroy the things you care about, because you care about them. It will destroy them because that gives them power over you.
Speak out against illegal immigration by shining the light on the inconvenient truth that illegal aliens kill, rape, and assault Americans and the left will open up the gates of hell to destroy you. Not because your wrong, but because you dare go against the narrative propagated by both the left and the pathetic right. Namely that narrative insists that Illegal immigrants are not only undocumented children, but that they are Dreamers simply taking advantage of Republicans failure to pass comprehensive immigration reform. So what then is the point of even speaking the truth on issues such as illegal immigration knowing that the left and some on the right will attack you with vengeance? Why not simply accommodate the left by agreeing to implement whatever reform they propose? The answer is simple, if today you decide to accommodate the left, tomorrow it will be used against you.
You cannot accommodate the left for they view you as an enemy which cannot possibly progress enough to be acceptable as the left identifies progress with political conformity. A tolerant and progressive Republican is a contradiction in terms. Greenfield elaborates:
The left exists to destroy you. It does not seek to co-exist with you. Its existence would lose all meaning. Any common ground will be used to temporarily achieve a goal before the useful idiots are kicked to the curb and denounced as bigots who are holding back progress.
The purpose of power is power. The left is not seeking to achieve a set of policy goals before kicking back and having a beer. The policy goals are means of destroying societies, nations and peoples before taking over. If you allow it a policy goal, it will ram that goal down your throat. It will implement it as abusively as it possibly can before it moves on to the next battle.
More fundamentally its about the difference in human nature between the people who want to be left alone and those who want power over others. You cant work out a truce with tyrants. You can give in or stand up to them. Theres nothing else. In an expression of its nihilism, the modern day liberal of the left organizes solely as a movement against rather than for. They are not for any of the numerous causes that they purport to They are less concerned about creating the future than they are about about destroying the present. In truly Orwellian fashion the democrat party seeks power entirely for its own sake. It is not interested in the good of others; theyre interested solely in power, pure power. Yet, the left is different from the oligarchies of the past in that they know what theyre doing. I know of no other description in which the left today is better defined than in the following sentences written by George Orwell in his classic 1984. Orwells description of the Party in 1984 is chillingly prophetic as it encapsulates the current ideology that predominates the left. Orwell writes:
All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know what no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me. To further demonstrate how fascistic the left has become I offer those who remain skeptical of the lefts ambitions a recent exchange that I had on Twitter with Sally Kohn of CNN. In response to an article written by Kohn on The Daily Beast titled The New Post-Homophobic Christianity in which Kohn states Will anti-gay Christians be politically and socially ostracized? I sure hope so, I responded with a tweet emphasizing that this is what bigotry looks like. Kohn replied in fascistic fashion. Below is the exchange.

As you can see, those like Kohn epitomize the left as they use issues, in this case gay rights, as a means to achieve their end, silencing those who oppose their views by labeling them anti this or bigot that. The hypocrisy of her statement is beyond comprehension, but what it represents is the nature of the liberal agenda. There can be no debate as those like Kohn place themselves upon the alter of self-righteousness while simultaneously smearing and attacking those who dare cling to religion. Examples such as this are symptomatic of the Orwellian left. The issue for the them is never the issue, the issue is always power and the more we acquiesce to their agenda the more we allow ourselves to not only lose our liberty, but win our enslavement.
Post it here.
Liberalism has been collapsing for a long time.
Thanks for your efforts. Please keep it up.
We’ve had a ‘classless’ society for a long time, now. No class at all........................
Just like the Mohammadans that the left adores. It has its roots coming straight from Satan himself.
I don’t know how to embed pictures on FR or else I would have.
Thank you Dutch, just my two cents!
And it appears the Left has opened up the gates of hell right here in America. I fear our greatest days are gone as the future doesn’t look bright at all.
So ignorance on your part equals more blog-hits for you?
That's convenient isn't it.
Well, it’s worth a lot more than two cents...you identify the destructive, nearly impossible to combat, insanity that the media, Hollywood, the college professors, the lawyers, the politicians and the unions are teaching the young people growing up today. I understand that God is still managing this, but we are to resist it for the darkness it is. Again, thanks.
Yes that’s why I posted the entire article and not half of it with a (continue here to read more).
I really appreciate it!
Good insight, and nicely written.
