The “Left” prefers to ignore, fact, logic, and truth and want to filter everything through concepts like subjectivism or to claim that everything is relative.
Wikipedia describes it as follows.
Relativism is the idea that views are relative to differences in perception and consideration. There is no universal, objective truth according to relativism; rather each point of view has its own truth.
The major categories of relativism vary in their degree of scope and controversy. Moral relativism encompasses the differences in moral judgments among people and cultures. Truth relativism is the doctrine that there are no absolute truths, i.e., that truth is always relative to some particular frame of reference, such as a language or a culture (cultural relativism). Descriptive relativism, as the name implies, seeks to decribe the differences among cultures and people without evaluation, while normative relativism evaluates the morality or truthfulness of views within a given framework.
Dr. Michael Savage describes “Liberalism, Progressivism, et al” as being a mental disorder. People of the left tend to react to everything from an emotional standpoint based on knee jerk reactions to things. The left tend to presume that they have the moral high ground simply because they feel this way or that about a thing, situation, or philosophy. Ie; I feel good about gender or racial equality, therefore I am a good person. As ridiculous as this is, the left takes this incredibly seriously.
Recently, several polls and studies have show that nearly 20%, or about 1 in 5 college students feel that violence is permitted against those who disagree with them. This is evident and true because we have only to look at Berkley when a conservative speaker tries to speak at their campus. The Antifa movement has become more aggressive and violent since President Donald Trump was elected as our 45th President. The left and antifa will not hesitate to resort to violence against anyone who dares to disagree with them. Windows are smashed, cars are burned, and people who stand against the radical, far left are attacked physically.
Political commentator, actor, and comedian, Steven Crowder did some undercover video of antifa radicals who are planning violent attacks this coming Nov. 4th, nationwide. Antifa radicals are seen on video passing out small knives and talking about guns that will be brought, and most likely used in the events this coming Nov. 4th. Where is the outrage from the media or anyone else on the left you might ask? In most cases, far left politicians and the media are too busy praising and trying to give credibility to antifa. These same politicians and media are the very same who decried every Tea Party gathering over the last few years. The hypocrisy is stark between the two groups as are their fundamental philosophies. Antifa (formerly Occupy… ) rallies almost always involve arrest and destruction of private property around them, while Tea Party rallies were almost 100% peaceful. When Tea Party left the area they were gathering in it was clean and sometimes cleaner than when the got there. When antifa leaves, it is completely strewn with trash and garbage as well as smashed windows, burned cars, etc.
If we simply look back in history, we clearly see the beginnings of these far left groups. The Frankfurt School was originally founded to discuss and teach Marxism. Marxism is the origin of “Political Correctness” which the left uses to bash anyone who dares disagree with them and society at large into submission. This failed political philosophy, Marxism, was what the Frankfurt School intended to teach and originally the Frankfurt School considered being named The Frankfurt School Of Marxism. After further discussion and thought, the idea was scrapped and the school simply became The Frankfurt School.
Edward Bernays, Sigmund Freud’s nephew was said to be the father of propaganda and in fact, the Nazis used the teachings of Bernays for their propaganda efforts. Today, the so called mainstream media is little more than the propaganda arm of the democrat party and the far left. Since the election of President Trump, the media no longer even try to appear neutral or unbiased and will go to almost any means, including fabricating false stories to push their far left ideology. The first eight months of the Trump Administration has seen 92% negative coverage from ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, cable, and every other “news outlet”. Beyond being ridiculous on its face, it is damaging to the country as far left politicians and the media collude on everything with the single purpose of attempting to derail the Trump Administration.
The left is willing to utilize any method conceivable to get to their goals. Lying, stealing, cheating, are all acceptable to these “ends justify the means” lunatics. Just as they were taught by Cloward and Piven during their indoctrination in our colleges and universities. The left eagerly follow the teachings of Saul Alinsky too. Alinsky’s 12 main rules are as follows.
1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.“ Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.
2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.“ It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.
3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.“ Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.“ If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.“ There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.“ They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.“ Don’t become old news.
8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.“ Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.“ Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
10. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.“ Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.
11. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.“ Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.
12. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.“ Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
This writer much prefers the truth, beauty, and wisdom of the beginning of the Declaration of Indepence as written by our American Founding Fathers.
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
Much to the detriment of our great country, the left has an iron fisted control over the public education system of this country, especially true of our colleges and universities. Instead of learning pure math, science, and history the curriculum is a collage of subjects deemed to be more important by the left such as woman’s studies, community organizing, and identity politics, etc. Students are no longer required or even encouraged to learn about American History and what is left after the revisionists get through with it is anything other than inspiring or educational and barely passes for extreme left wing propaganda at best. Just take a close look at “Common Core” programs such as common core math and you will quickly see why our education system is currently ranked 17th in the world. Let that sink in, the greatest country on the earth has an education system that is ranked 17th in the world. How can that be you might ask? The answer is simply that dictators, Chinese, Russian, etc. prefer to keep the “Masses” ignorant because the uneducated, illiterate, are far easier to control than free thinker who are educated. Under the rule of Mao, in China, an estamated 45 million plus died in four years. Under Stalin in Russia, an estimated 40 million died. The common thread between the horrors were communism. But, American children are not being taught to be proud or our wonderful country. Most of our kids today have no spirit of Patriotism and are not being taught to read the founding documents of this country such as the Bill Of Rights, the Constitution, and Declaration of Independence. Today, instead of learning about the old, white, slave holders, they are indoctrinated to simply follow, unquestioningly, while drinking the Kool Aid from the democrat party and their attack arm which is supposed to be our media. In short, the more they can dumb down the masses, the easier it will be for them to control us. Much like living in an Orwellian nightmare that you can not awaken from but to the left is a twisted, politically correct, utopia.
Key words, triggers, and dog whistles of racism, sexism, islamophobia, etc. are the primary tools of the left used to bludgeon and destroy anyone who disagree with them. But, they don’t simply stop at shouting us down, no, they go on a crusade of personal destruction, adding violence to their arsenal which they try to justify with relativism and the ends justify the means type of thinking. If you flip between channels on any given time period, you will see the common buzzwords and phrases used by the left and the media as given to them by their left wing handlers in government. The left is completely unhinged by the election of President Donald Trump and the loss of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Despite the fact that conservatives outnumber liberals by a fair margin, the self righteous, hypocrites in the left absolutely can not accept the fact that the majority of Americans disagree with their ideology and belief system. Those of us in what the left deems as “Flyover Country”, have more conservative belief systems and believe in rugged individualism and free thought. The left wants massive government control over all aspects of our lives. Even though socialist, communist, forms of government have failed even whey tried by the people who founded them like Stalin and Marx, the left still think that it would work because they are so enlightened and worthy of being in charge.
Truth, fact, and empirical data when viewed by the left are subjective and relative to the left. Bringing millions of illegals to the US and enslaving them to social welfare programs in hopes that they will become democrat voters is and was a tactic used by the democrats in hopes of “Padding” their voter ranks and gaining an advantage during elections did not quite work out as the democrats thought it would and many of these illegals actually voted for President Donald Trump. But, the fact that this country can not afford to take on millions and millions more illegals, the left is more than happy to throw down our national boundaries to enable endless masses of more illegals to enter our country. Illegal aliens should not be allowed to vote or participate in American politics by virtue of the fact that they are in this country illegally but to the “ends justify the means” left, if they vote democrat then it is all good. To the left, right and wrong is “relative and subjective” which is why most on the left do not like Christianity and the absolute definitions of “Right and Wrong” as written in Gods Word. Not being able to tolerate absolute restrictions on how we are to live and behave as it is established by God’s Word, the left prefers to adopt an attitude or relativism in looking at right and wrong. This attitude that the left embraces brings about social, sexual, and racial relativism and right and wrong are determined by man and society, not God.
