Bob Wallace on Leftists and Free Speech

Sometimes I think the left has changed, but when I think further about it, I realize that any changes are trivial, surface things, and that the left's basic character remains constant. At least it has during my lifetime.

Oh, the left back in the Sixties seemed different. They weren't as wussy, and hadn't yet thought of the current tactic of claiming triggers and microaggressions and that they feel "threatened" all the time. But that's really just a tactic, and doesn't signal any change about how they think, really.

And of course the left, back in the Sixties, didn't have nearly so many "mascots," if you will, as they do now. Back then it was, frankly, Blacks, who they were always excoriating us for mistreating, and maybe foreigners in general a little bit, and when Vietnam heated up, they had their noble cousins, the communists, to advocate in favor of. But in those days they hadn't yet discovered homosexuals as a victim group to whine about. Indeed, one of their tactics was to accuse their opponents of being homosexuals. It was probably before your time, but back then it was popular to say that Nazis were homosexuals, and, of course, individuals that they particularly hated and feared, like Joe McCarthy and J. Edgar Hoover.

And again, back in the Sixties, the left was big on freedom of speech, by which they meant freedom to spread their own propaganda and to talk dirty in polite company. I know some old holdovers from that era who delight in using the f-word in front of women, for example. They certainly weren't crazy about free speech for those they disagreed with, but in those days, even leftists felt that they had to at least have the appearance of consistency, so they advocated free speech.

And they still give lip service to free speech, but they've also found a new ploy to undermine it, called "hate speech." Now they can say they advocate free speech, but of course "hate speech" should be repressed. And, naturally, "hate speech" now consists of any speech that disagrees with the leftist agenda. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même old crap.

And now, Bob Wallace on the subject, from his blog [link]:

The Left is Really Exposing its True Nature This Time

Proverbs 6:16-24
16 These six things doth the LORD hate : yea, seven are an abomination unto him: 17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, 19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
I've known several hardcore leftists in my life and all of them are as ignorant as apples of economics, history and political science. That doesn't stop them, though, from babbling as if they are experts on everything. I know one who told me recently about "libertarian Nazis" (I don't have the slightest idea what that is supposed to mean), but I do know he thinks Hillary Clinton is the most honest of the candidates and would make a wonderful President. He also told me socialism is "based on love."
Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn said it best: "Leftists don't merely misunderstand human nature. They don't understand it at all."
Currently they're trying to claim Donald Trump is a Nazi/Hitler. Since they have no understanding of human nature, they do not realize their tactics will always backfire.
They really think that comparing him to Hitler, and sending provocatuers into Trump rallies, starting trouble and trying to blame it on Trump and his supporters is going to drive people away from him. They cannot understand it will drive people toward him.
They think their mocking is the same thing as reality. Reality as self-congratulation!
They also cannot understand that every time a Third World immigrant murders an American, or rapes a 12-year-old (male or female), or a dog or a sheep, it is going to send more people toward Trump.
I wouldn't be surprised if Trump takes 49 states. Nixon did it against McGovern - 49 states to one.
I recently met a man (IQ about 85) who told me Trump is evil, will start a bunch of wars, and that he hopes Trump will be assassinated. It's amusing to me to listen to these morons - they're really quite entertaining.
They also shouldn't be allowed to vote.
Every time I watch the news (which I didn't do for years and only now am watching because of the election) I see vicious attacks on Trump and none on the other candidates. They really think these attacks will drive people away from Trump. They have no idea people no longer take the news seriously, since it's propaganda.
Leftists don't believe in free speech, except for themselves. Free speech for others makes them feel bad when they hear views they don't like, and since their feelings are the most important thing in the world, they are completely unable to listen to it. They honestly think the vast majority of people are so stupid that when they hear some "fascist" speak the words go straight into the brains of his supporters and brainwash them. They honestly think these people are as weak-minded as Star Wars Stormtroopers and that Jedi Mind Tricks permanently hypnotize them.
Leftists never change. I was 12 years old in '68 and saw leftists rioting in the streets, setting off bombs, kidnapping people, and trying to murder police officers. And sometimes succeeding. Even at that age I thought, "Who are these people and why are they doing this?"
Years later I realized, "These are liberals - leftists!"
When Trump becomes President they are going to have a four-year-froth-fest. No matter how good the economy becomes, no matter how many troops come home, it doesn't matter. The'll try every day to bring him down.
Why? Because to them Trump will always be Hitler and his supporters will always be Nazis.
Quibcag: Coincidentally, it's those girls from K-On! (けいおん! Keion!)  again.

  1. I'm sick and tired of people demonizing Hitler and the national Socialists. Fascists were the only ones that crushed these dirty commies, which is really what these "liberals", "progressives", "SJWs" and any other deceptive term for the Lunatic Fringe really are in truth. Fascism is the only cure for this disease which seeks to destroy Western Civilization and return to ignorant neo-luddite primitism. All these insane idiots are really trying to do is destroy Western Civilization. Whether through bringing in stupid savages or claiming we need to stop power production due to ridiculously inaccurate predictions of weather, these enemies simply want to remove our advanced way of life that they see as an obstacle of their global police state neo-feudalist fantasy.
