  • Narcissism and Progressive Activism

    David Horowitz (Excerpted from How to Beat the Democrats and Other Subversive Ideas) ^ | August 14th, 2018 | Charles McFarling and David Horowitz
    Have you ever asked yourself why Progressive activists demonstrate so much compassion for illegal immigrants they have never met while treating fellow citizens that disagree with them so badly? The truth is they have little compassion, It is but an act. They are actually hate-filled misanthrops, full of rage. Progressive activists exhibit the stereotypical virtue signalling, false compassion and rage of a pathological narcissist. True compassion isn't situational. Kind people are kind to everyone, they don't profess how much they care about illegal immigrants they have never met while calling their fellow citizens racists and Nazis. Narcissists are pathologically driven...

    The Federalist ^ | 08/14/2018 | Bill Killgore
    The DC “Unite the Right” rally resurfaced the silly “Who’s the real racist?” game. When liberals call conservatives or conservative opinions racist, conservatives respond: “No, you are the real racist!” But conservatives don’t seem to understand that liberals use that term in a different way. Worse, conservatives damage conservatism by arguing. If they are going to play the game, conservatives should do so with open eyes.Let me start by acknowledging the obvious: racism is bad. The game isn’t silly because the response is wrong; people on the left really are racist. Of course I am generalizing, but it isn’t...

    The leftist media is no stranger in attacking President Trump. Often, they will find a big name to interview hoping that the interviewee will verbally attack the president the left hates so much. Usually, the person talking obliges. The media will run the interview for a day or so to create a story. Last weekend, Don Lemon interviewed basketball star LeBron James about the opening of the I Promise School he started for at-risk and underprivileged children in Akron, Ohio. During the interview, Lemon naturally moved the questioning towards the president. It is no secret that James doesnt like the...

    Austins Equity Office has recommended renaming the Texas city because of Stephen F. Austin's alleged views on slavery. But why stop at just renaming Austin when Amerigo Vespucci took and sold slaves. Austin, Texas is named after Stephen F. Austin, but America is named after Amerigo Vespucci. New York City has been on its own anti-history binge, demoting the statue of the Father of Gynecology and tearing out plaques memorializing Robert E. Lee attached to a tree that he had once planted, but its got bigger problems. The city is named after King James II whose Royal African Company branded...

    If you have a hard time following the logic of some liberal arguments, dont worry. Its not you. Taking a page out of George Orwells Nineteen Eighty-Four, our modern prog friends have mastered the art of doublethink the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in ones mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. As Orwell described the labyrinthine world of doublethink, it was To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them,...

    The capacity of human beings for making the same mistake again and again is exceeded only by the capacity of their governments to enshrine those mistakes in law. To err is human; to forgive, divine but what are we to do when a significant segment of our population has grown so enamored of an error that they lose the capability to recognize it as such? Indeed, they become violently defensive at the mere mention of reassessing their beliefs. A difficult situation is made untenable when the error involved has dangerous ramifications for everyone, not just those making the mistake....

    For this week's Big Ideas with Ben Weingarten podcast, I had nationally syndicated radio host, columnist, author of numerous books, teacher, film producer and co-founder of PragerU, Dennis Prager, on the podcast to discuss among other things: How Dennis Prager ended up a conservative as an Ivy League-educated Jewish intellectual from Brooklyn, New York -- contrary to so many of his peers How perceptions of human nature divide Left and Right Whether government has filled the void of religion for the increasingly secular and progressive American coasts How the good intentions that underlie Leftist policy prescriptions lead to horrendous outcomes...

    An art gallery in Portland, Oregon, has removed a graphic window illustration of President Trump being threatened with a bloody knife at his throat after an angry outcry. The One Grand Gallery took down the image entitled F*** Trump Tuesday in response to complaints, threats and a request from the landlord, as reported by Fox12. The same people offended over a death threat are the same people upholding death threats & violence. Irony, said the gallery in a Tuesday post on Facebook.
  • Deport the Deplorables?

    American Greatness ^ | 17 Jul, 2018 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Deport the Deplorables is a slogan of popular culture, found on bumper stickers, t-shirts, and internet postings. But now the mini-industry of deplorable/deportable sloganeering has made its way into more elite circles. With just three words, the phrase deport the deplorables sends two popular messages: one, get rid of undesirable American citizens who voted for Donald Trump and who were properly written off in 2016 as deplorables by Hillary Clinton. And, two, by implication, dont deport the illegal aliens who broke U.S. immigration law. Or put more succinctly, foreign nationals who crash our borders are innately superior people to citizens...

    A few months ago, the Democrat-Media Complex was brimming with bravado: this falls congressional elections, the story went, were sure to rebuke the gauche interloper Donald Trump and swamp him and his minions in a giant Blue Wave that would restore Democrats control of the legislative branch, launch impeachment proceedings in the House, convict him in the Senate, and drive him from office as the wronged Dowager Empress of Chappaqua resumed her rightful place in the Peoples House. Et voila! The restoration of the old order and a new tsunami of progressive regulations would ensure nothing like Trump would ever...

    American Thinker ^ | 11 Jul, 2018 | John Scotto
    The left of today are the founders of a new religion called selectivity. Every aspect of the left's current extreme ideology involves being selective. Selective outrage, selective morality, selective media reporting, selective justice and selective "facts," all have become the "go to" weapons of the radical left. All of the above are becoming vital characteristics one must exemplify if one is going to become a practicing member of this new leftist religious cult. Every member of this leftist religious sect must take a solemn vow to always be selective when it comes to reporting on any kind of news, evidence...

    The U.K.s government-run healthcare system, the National Health Service, turns 70 this month. Theres not much to celebrate. The NHS is collapsing. Patients routinely face treatment delays, overcrowded hospitals, and doctor shortages. Even its most ardent defenders admit that the NHS is in crisis. Yet American progressives want to import this disastrous model. About one in three Democratic senators and more than half of Democratic representatives support single-payer health care. Why? The British experiment with socialized medicine has been a monumental failure. It would be foolish to repeat that mistake here. Single-payer is fundamentally flawed. It relieves consumers of any...

  • Dispatches From The 'Tolerant' Left's War On Trump Supporters

    07/10/2018 7:30:52 AM PDT · by DeweyCA · 14 replies
    Breitbart recently started compiling what it characterizes as "acts of media-approved violence and harassment against Trump supporters." The list is now up to 258 and climbing fast. So far this month, Breitbart counts more than two dozen incidents of threats, intimidation and violence against Trump officials and supporters, or mainstream journalists excusing such actions. That's likely just scratching the surface, since no doubt many abuses go unreported. The left defends such actions as justified because of Trump's policies or his actions. The truth is, this is how extremists on the left always respond to politicians and policies they disagree...

    WASHINGTON Democratic senators running for re-election in red states where President Donald Trump remains popular face an agonizing choice over his coming Supreme Court nominee: Vote to confirm the pick and risk demoralizing Democratic voters ahead of the midterm elections, or stick with the party and possibly sacrifice their own seats and any chance at a Democratic majority in 2019. The actions of a handful of Senate Democrats struggling to hold their seats in those states notably Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of Indiana and Joe Manchin of West Virginia will have broad implications...

    (Barf Alert) --- (snip) -- The author and political scientist offers a traditionally timid party some bold ideas. Democrats are despondent right now. Already in control of the White House and Congress, Republicans are poised to solidify their majority on the Supreme Court, and the Dems are powerless to prevent it. What can they do? David Faris has many suggestions, but they boil down to an attitude: No more Mr. Nice Donkey. Faris argues Democrats have been too passive and accepting of the fundamental unfairness of the American political system. He points to the undemocratic nature of the United States...

    Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Democrats! If you think the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court last year upset the left, that is nothing compared to their reaction to President Donald Trump naming a replacement for the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy to the high court which has sent them over the edge of sanity. As a result they want to take revenge on the Republicans for the high crime of winning the presidency in 2016 in addition to maintaining control of Congress. Although the Democrat leadership wants to project an image of stability, many of their members are...

    "Faris response to the Normalcy program is that there is no value in conserving a burning house. The endangered state of American liberal democracy, he argues, calls for emergency steps from Democrats and the left. They should take advantage of legal and constitutional silences to transform American politics in a lasting progressive direction, Faris writes. Doing so will require party leaders to pursue policy changes that will be ridiculed by their opponents as outrageous affronts to democratic decency and received by their own voters with puzzlement or even shock. They need to do it anyway. The list of those changes...
