Evil is a very strong word, when used properly. Merriam-Webster defines it many ways, the most relevant to what I’m talking about being “morally reprehensible” and “arising from actual or imputed bad character or conduct.” That is the modern left, the “progressive movement,” the “Democratic” Party. And to fight evil, to stop it, is the most important thing anyone can do.
What justifies the use of “evil” as a descriptor? It’s a dangerous word to use, one that has been abused throughout history to demonize innocent people as well as condemn the guilty. But there is no other word for what these people are doing, both in tactic and objective.
As they vanquish statues of our Founding Fathers, they erect them to Huey Newton and write long, glowing pieces extolling the virtues of the left’s racist division tactics. Anything for the cause.
That dedication to the cause is what progressives have always done. From the eugenics in the early 20th century to Germany in the 1930s, nothing will dissuade a committed leftist from their objective. The starvation and death in the Soviet Union didn’t bother Joseph Stalin, similar horrors in China never cost Mao Zedong a moment of sleep. Both leftist “leaders” had their actions lead directly to unspeakable horrors, up to and including cannibalism and genocide, and not only do leftists try to ignore these horrors, to the extent they acknowledge them they simply don’t care.
In this country, they are in charge, but just barely. A 3-seat majority in the House and a tie in the Senate they can break in their favor might as well be a landslide in their eyes. They don’t let decisively losing statewide referendums deter them from their objectives, why would they let slim majorities? They fight to win, and when they lose they sue to overturn the will of the people. Has there been a referendum in California they’ve lost they haven’t sued over?
When Republicans have a clear majority, Democrats filibuster, shut down the government, and in states they flee to prevent legislatures from doing their jobs. When even a fraction of that favor is returned – use of the filibuster – it’s somehow a rekindling of Democrats’ Jim Crow laws. That is evil.
What’s more evil is the ease with which they spread these lies. Nothing is off-limits, and no lie for the cause is too big. Race, gender, sexuality, and every other made up form of victimhood is currency with the new left. No matter how rich or successful someone is, the left has their people scrambling to find a way to wrap themselves not in accomplishment, but oppression.
As one Twitter user put it about a pathetic piece in the Huffington Post by an extremely wealthy black woman desperately seeking some of that victimhood currency, “Wherein a multi-millionaire doctor previously married to the CEO of Paramount explains that although she's richer than you or almost any white person will ever be, she's actually very oppressed and that crushing oppression should be a central topic of our current zeitgeist.”
What kind of people embrace this mentality? Is there a better word than evil for those who do? For those who encourage self-martyrdom? Worse, for those who’d tell children they can’t win, they can’t get ahead because “the system” is somehow rigged against them? The same system in which they’ve succeeded. How did they do it? No one ever asks, and they never say. They can’t, it undermines their objectives.
The kind of people who can inspire a well-off, pudgy white woman who admits she and her husband make a good living but rising gas prices are putting a small dent in their discretionary spending asking the President how he can help her. It wasn’t the dumbest or most offensive question at CNN’s town hall, but it was the most telling and pathetic about where we are as a society. When people like her run to the government for help, rather than taking responsibility and maybe choosing a choice cut of beef over prime every once in a while to make up the difference, our country is nearly done.
The United States of America could never be overtaken by a foreign enemy, no matter how much they saber-rattle about it. But our enemies don’t have to work to destroy the United States, they simply have to wait. The left in this country will do it for them from within. When it comes to what these people are doing, until someone creates a stronger, more accurate way of describing it, evil is the perfect word.
Just as viruses will virus evil will evil. I have learned that when I prognosticate on the basis of my own sense of outrage I am most often wrong. But when I prognosticate on the basis that evil will evil I am dead right.
useful idiots who will bring us to this point and then be eliminated when they thought they would be in good standings and reap their rewards. But the real ugliness is when they allow them to murder average people indiscriminately, like the nazis and take their possessions as the spoils because they have their support.
The implication is false.
The left in this country work in concert with our enemies.
The Republican Party is fully complicit and helped get us here. They still embrace globalism and China.
The GOP still undermines Trump.
I totally agree. For decades, the RINO’s have fooled us all. Some more than others. Now, thanks mostly to Trump, aka wheelbarrow balls, we know EXACTLY who the bastards are in Congress and are gaining on them in down ballot elections.
No, we weren’t being hyperbolic when we referred to them as “demoncrats.”
The little evils they used to do always were indicative of the bigger evils in their souls that they were only waiting for the opportunity — when there was no one to hold them accountable — to unleash.
Take homosexuality, for example. I'm not cursed with Same Sex Attraction Disorder (SSAD) but I knew some who were and I couldn't help but feel compassion for them.
Even back in the 70s I was for the decriminalization of the sodomy laws. But I was wrong. Very, very wrong. It turns out that the "what people do in the privacy of their own home is nobody's business" was the proverbial camel's nose under the tent. It turns out that true compassion for those afflicted with SSAD is zealous enforcement of the sodomy laws.
I saw friends die of AIDS because they were abetted by a tolerant, "compassionate" society that lacked the courage to say that what they were doing is sin, and that sin is death.
Because of people like me who supported a generally tolerant attitude toward gays we now have little boys openly twerking at Pride Day, and Munchausen parents seeking attention by proclaiming the gender fluidity of their toddlers. And all of this slide into the Culture of Death within my lifetime.
No sane society can tolerate sodomy for the same reason one cannot sleep next to a rabid dog. Sodomy is the pure distillate of the poison of sin and to allow it to exist in any society is to wish its destruction.
I was wrong. And many whom I thought of as unreasoning bigots were right.
I feel that I should apologize but I'm not sure to whom.
How we stop the spread of the poison at this point is beyond me.
Watch the WWII tank movie "Fury". Pay close attention to what Brad Pitt's character says to do with German SS soldiers when they capture them.
I would say killing kids would qualify.
There was a reason why what we call sex crimes and perversion was a death penalty offense in the Old Testament.
They knew that if this sort of thing were “tolerated” the whole society would become corrupt to the point that the only way to cleanse it is to destroy it utterly.
Why do you think He commanded the children of Israel to exterminate the Canaanites?
Ex post facto justification for stealing someone else’s property just the Puritans did with the New England Indians.
