The Irrational Left

Nobody's said it better than Jay does in the quibcag. Now, the left used to be more rational than it is now, because it recognized most of reality as such. It acknowledged a lot of facts that it now rejects, and many of those facts are taboo one way or another — "hate facts" or something like that. It's probably a little unfair to use the Soviet girl as an illustration for this, because at its worst, the Soviet Union was realistic about most things, and even knew better than to take communist economic theory all that seriously.

We tend to think of communism as being an enemy of Western Civilization, which indeed it was, but it wasn't really dreamed up to wreck our civilization. Marx himself would have considered most of our current social justice warriors decadent idiots, and he's have been right, too. He was concerned, however perversely, about justice for the working class. Our current left couldn't care less about the working class, which is why said working class rejected the left and voted for Trump. So whatever the left used to be, from Marx to William Jennings Bryan to Gene Debs, it is now entirely devoted to the destruction of Western Civilization, which is why it's totally abandoned reality and logic.

The quote comes from Chateau Heartiste, who says:

The Three Rs: How To Defeat Anti-White Leftoids

Good comment by Jay, who writes about the studied irrationality of the cro-modern virtue-signaling Left, and how the Maul-Right can effectively oust them from their hegemonic information gatekeeping.
There is a very important point CH has mentioned in this, which needs to be reiterated. The Left is quintessentially irrational. I’ll say it again, in case it’s not getting through. Leftists are at war with reality. This is why invoking logic, facts, irrefutable proof, superlative arguments, etc., is generally futile in dealing with them. Their entire body of expression arises out of a wilful suppression of observable fact in what could be described as a mass psychosis that is fuelled by… social esteem.
They want to be popular. They want to be liked. They want to feed off Twitbook likes, friendings, and so on. That’s why they virtue-signal: to thrive on the nectar of approval. They are of the same cloth as those who vocally supported Hitler or Stalin were cut from: go-along-to-get-alongers. They have no logic-based, robustly structured, consistent argument matrix; instead, their language is rhetorical, emotive, sensual, impulsive, hysterical, accusative. But never rational.
This opens up the means to deal with them. And that is… charitable ostracisation. Sure, refute their mantras with compelling arguments; it will serve as a public testimony to their idiocy and may plant in them a seed for future recovery, but in the interim, politely cut them off. Let them know, with solemn cadences, that their views are unacceptable to you. In short, “unfriend” them.
Ridicule, Realtalk, and Rejection are the Three Rs of successfully neutering leftoids.
Cut them quick.
Cut them up.
Cut them off.
The Left has had a monopoly on the use of Rhetoric-slash-Ridicule to disarm their enemies, which was a choice of necessity because the Left long ago abandoned Reason as an avenue to access power. It’s all sophistry and triple bankshot hypocrisy for the Left, abetted by cowardly controlled opposition epitomized in CuckRyan’s untrustworthy sanpaku eyes, and this formula has been very successful for them…..until now.

And let me add....

There's no exaggeration here. The left is batsh*t-irrational, to coin a term. They constantly twist facts until they're meaningless. A good example is one very misleading fact, of a sort, brought up once again by Juan Williams on Fox News. Basically, it's the assertion that immigrants have a lower crime rate than Americans. Several things wrong with that.

1. When we hear this, we automatically think of the White American crime rate, but the immigrant rate is being compared to the aggregate crime rate for Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, and everybody else. I'm sure if you check, you'll find that the immigrant crime rate is significantly higher than the White crime rate.

2. Immigrants tend to be older. And as such, more of them are past the young male cohort that is most inclined towards crime.

3. Immigrants' children are of course not counted as immigrants, but as Americans. The fact is that the second and third generation of immigrants are very much more inclined towards crime than the original immigrants. They lack the feeling of gratitude for the opportunities here that the originals have. On the contrary, they want all the goodies and freebies they can get, and they're constantly being taught that Americans don't deserve what they have and therefore should be robbed.

And that's an actual fact, that they just misinterpret and use to mislead. But many of the left's "facts" are nothing of the kind, but baseless assertions.  Here are a few:

1. There's no such thing as race.
2. All races are equal.
3. There are 31 or some silly number of genders, which seems to be different than 'sexes,' but I wouldn't bet money on it.
4. Trump is stupid.
5. Trump is insane.
6. Hillary is somehow talented.
7. Diversity is our strength

I'm sure you can add a few of your own.

And now, on roughly the same subject, to Fred:

Social Justice Warriors and Bubonic Plague:Is There a Difference?

Some observations:
(1) Liberals posit the equality of groups that are not equal, attribute the inevitable differences of outcome to discrimination, and try to eradicate them through regulation, affirmative action, and punishment of those noticing the differences. This doesn’t work, assuring a  pretext for indignation that is non-depletable, like the liver of Prometheus.
Here we have the bedrock of American politics.
(2) Liberals believe that we should all  love one another, and hate those who don’t. This puts them in the morally invincible position of being against hatred. It also obscures the observable fact that most of us, certainly to include liberals,  dislike a great many people, and that most groups detest a lot of other groups, or will if placed in contact with them. Distance is prerequisite to love.
(3) Groups hate each other, firstly, the greater their proximity. Secondly, the more they differ from one another, and, thirdly, the more power one has over another or the greater the apparent superiority of one over the other. The result is a spectrum of hostility running from surliness to severed heads.
This explains anti-antisemitism. Jews do not assimilate: Bill O’Toole in America does not think of himself as Irish, but Rachel Cohen thinks of herself as Jewish. This is not a sin, which has nothing to do with it.  Proximity is close to a maximum since Jews are widely mixed through the population. Jews rise to positions of power, completing the triad. They can’t win.
There are those who believe that Homo sapiens came about through the mating of a Neanderthal with a pit bull. While this has not been confirmed, it fits the evidence.
(4) This brings us to the curious notion that diversity is a strength, which it obviously is not. Diversity is in fact the cause of most of the world’s troubles. If you doubt that diversity is a great evil, consider relations between:

Quibcags: The first is illustrated by a drawing I found on the net. The second by characters from Hayate the Combat Butler (ハヤテのごとく! Hayate no Gotoku!) And I believe the third is based on characters from Azumanga Daioh (Japaneseあずまんが大王 HepburnAzumanga Daiō?, lit. "Great King Azumanga") 


  1. A more euridite take making the same point

  2. The left is controlled opposition by the PTB.
