Communist Left, Culture Wars ← Previous post Next post → Comments JTC Feb 01 2020 at 12:14 am All the marketing types are on the leftist side along with the other media types, entertainers, academics, and all the other fake made up do as I say not as I do bullshit elites. Frogs might be slow to jump, but when they do… JTC Feb 01 2020 at 12:45 am …when they do, we shall who does what to whom. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Feb 01 2020 at 12:19 am This frog is old, and slow to “jump”, but has teeth and claws. WayneM Feb 01 2020 at 1:24 am The thought just occurred to me… Think of the current political maelstrom as being a slow social feedback mechanism. Since WW2 or thereabouts, the leftist authoritarians have been working at infiltrating western societies. This isn’t organized or directed… rather the idea pathogens (tip of the hat to Dr Gad Saad) are spread slowly, mainly through the schools and governments. Every generation or so, they push to seize power/control but, so far, they’ve always end up failing. This time, the push is more concerted than previous attempts. I don’t know whether it will be enough to awaken the slumbering unwashed masses. Certainly the results of the most recent election in the UK seems to indicate something. Will Trump win re-election? It seems likely. Will the Democrats be decimated? Hard to say… If they are, will they change their tune or just keep screeching at the moon? Again, hard to say… Bill G Feb 01 2020 at 6:13 am These idea pathogens are spread through the schools, and each generation of students is more heavily infected than the teachers that infected them. And each generation’s extremists are more extreme. If there is a Republican sweep, the results may be terrible, or just a tempest in a teapot as a few of the farthest-out get smacked down. Old Codger Feb 01 2020 at 9:40 am Will the Democrats . . . change their tune or just keep screeching at the moon? They cannot. They are tone deaf and utterly incapable of learning anything which does not fit their ideology. John D. Egbert Feb 01 2020 at 12:22 pm They learned, far back, that the route to domination is control of the three main avenues to power: Education, Information and Entertainment. They’ve had Information since the days of “Uncle Walter;” the Prussian model of teaching came to our shores around the turn of the last century, and the campus radicals of the 1960s are now in charge of Education; and Entertainment has been on a slow slide down the slippery slope since “High Noon.” Reversing 100+ years of inch-by-inch inculcation will not be easy, nor will it be rapid. But it must be done if our Republic is to survive. Pete231 Feb 01 2020 at 2:36 am Ribbet ! Wood Feb 01 2020 at 7:41 am Knee deep…. in mud. Mike Seden Feb 01 2020 at 9:07 am I think we should call “BullFrog” on the whole frog filled swamp and fire ’em all! nonncom Feb 01 2020 at 9:19 am Wouldn’t it be interesting to see what a filibuster proof senate on the Republican side, coupled with Trump and a Republican house could accomplish….bet we’ll never see that, though it would either be the end of the democratic party, or, the end of the Republican party if they refused to act on that power…. John Feb 01 2020 at 1:49 pm So long as there are those who seek political power for its own sake there will be, alas, a Democratic Party. It may or may not carry the same name, but it will never go away so long as we allow it the opportunity to continue to fester. The first thing to address is their choke hold on the education system, for they have deliberately and systematically eliminated any semblance of training in Critical Thinking for the sake of appealing to the gullible masses they seek to bribe with other people’s (meaning our and our children’s) money. Halley Feb 01 2020 at 2:06 pm Yes. The biggest problem, literally the elephant in the room, has forever been the sanction of legitimacy the GOP gives the “Democrats” (the spawn of Lenin crime syndicate). The moon may turn to green parmesan before that sanction is ever removed… ottersmith Feb 01 2020 at 9:24 am Whether they are fascists or communists or communitarian or whatever … they want control. Controlitarian? I have a hard enough time managing my own life, I neither need nor want their interference, even if it’s called “help”. I want freedom. John Feb 01 2020 at 1:57 pm The term you are looking for is Authoritarian. It is the very antithesis of the rule of law through the consent of the governed, and championed by idiots who think they can miraculously control it by wishing it so. Brent Dotson Feb 01 2020 at 2:21 pm You beat me to it. Also, it is not just the left (although they seem to be taking it to absurd lengths). The Right can be just as tyrannical as the left. The only difference is their areas of concern. Of course, the real motive is power; some for its own sake and some under some agenda. The former is easier to deal with. Pamela Feb 01 2020 at 10:38 am The idiots forget that some frogs are poison hiding in plain site. Browncoat Feb 01 2020 at 12:16 pm And they’re (we’re) beautiful… interventor Feb 01 2020 at 7:38 pm True, poison dart frogs are quite colorful. DogByte6RER Feb 01 2020 at 11:49 am My personal favorite political analogy using animals is, of course, George Orwell’s novella “Animal Farm.” The great ironic epiphany in Animal Farm occurs when one of the commandments for the Animal Farm is reinterpreted by the politburo pigs to be read as … “ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL / BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.” This phrase is a prime example of the systematic abuse of language and tortured logic by the pigs (i.e., the ruling party socialists) with the intention to control and dominate all the other animals of this dystopian farm. I’ve heard this often repeated now for some time … for Conservatives, Republicans and Libertarians Orwell’s “1984” and “Animal Farm” are cautionary tales; for Democrats, Progressives and Leftists “1984” and “Animal Farm” are instruction manuals. John D. Egbert Feb 01 2020 at 12:25 pm And don’t forget Huxley’s “Brave New World.” Henry Feb 02 2020 at 4:48 pm Orwell was Britain’s prophet — Huxley was Canada’s. John Feb 01 2020 at 2:10 pm In a way Orwell was both a prophet and a fool. In spite of all the intrinsic evils of Socialism he observed he remained a life long Socialist. The only thing I can think of that allowed for this is that he swallowed the argument of Jean-Jacques Rousseau that human nature was infinity malleable and hoped to change Mankind for the “better”. He would have been wiser to pay more attention to Thomas Hobbes and the works of the Scottish Enlightenment. Henry Feb 02 2020 at 4:53 pm What disqualifies all authoritarian forms of government from consideration is that it is human nature in the collective, not individual case that determines whether or not they can ever be run justly. Psychopathy / sociopathy is a congenital, medical disorder. Something like 1% of all humans are born that way. In the absence of a cure, anyone who expects human nature as a whole to change for the better is a fool. Buck Feb 01 2020 at 2:09 pm The demoncrats keep accusing Trump of having done something or everything for personal gain. But seeing the amount of familial profits demonicrats have been indulging in for decades I think they are taking offence to the thought that he’s doing it for America. They refuse to make that a complete thought – so now they’re the ones behind the curve and can’t conceive that Nationalism is back on the table. Kafiroon Feb 01 2020 at 2:15 pm Culture wars Chris said. I see that is one war we are in. After last week seeing those effeminate weird looking guys(?) wearing some kind of explosion in a paint and rag warehouse are the opposition? Anti-First Amendment troops? If that is the main troops, they lose in a physical fight. Society can end if a good number of them do not learn the many technical skills to keep the infrastucture operating. There is the old thing of having to make machines to make the machines that are needed to survive. kadaka Feb 01 2020 at 2:36 pm The Culling has begun. Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”, Stoking Fears Over Artificially Created Bioweapon It responds to AIDS drugs but mutates very fast, so there will be a servant class needing medications for life to survive who’ll die horribly without, suppressing rebellions. And isolated uninfected populations who avoid strangers due to infectious carriers not showing symptoms, limiting the groups’ ability to work together for a common goal like defense or revolution. This might get interesting. Physics-Ninja Feb 01 2020 at 3:15 pm Can anyone among thee find any authorization in the Contract between the States (Articles of the Constitution) for the Department of Education, the Department of Labor or the Federal Reserve? JJ Feb 01 2020 at 6:41 pm “They” will just find something else if the useless ones are brought down. JJC interventor Feb 01 2020 at 7:41 pm True, poison dart frogs are quite colorful. Curlysan Feb 01 2020 at 11:36 pm The problem with holding majorities in both houses is that is does conservatives no damn good. There are too many RINO’s in the party who are of the “Noble Loser” category. They make loud lion-like noises, but they know they don’t have to ‘hunt’ (produce any actual results) to get fed. They spout platitudes that are wordy versions of “They foxed us again boys. We’ll get ’em next time for sure!” when defeated by the Demonrat Party. They never do. They don’t want to. It’s like the sad status quo in ‘Palestine’. -There’s no justification for more revenue, or power if the problems start getting solved. We call them legislators; & brother they legislate with a will. It needs to stop because we’re paying them to forge the chains they put on us. “When something cannot go on forever; it has to stop.” Don’t recall who said it first, but Jerry Pournelle was fond of repeating it on his website. Kafiroon Feb 01 2020 at 11:51 pm Do I remember right that when DBD started, was not Jan a PR sales type where they worked? If she is still up to it, there is the Sky and Sam media rep.
