Why Is There No Alt-Left?

Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Media Complex are attempting to tie Donald Trump (and by extension, *all conservatives* and *all Republicans*) to the “Alt-Right” Fringe; a group they characterize as being pretty much exactly the same as the KKK.

There is no equivalent to the Alt-Right on the Left. There is no fringe racist group that supports the Great Left-Wing Progressive Coalition but embarrasses and is shunned by “respectable” members of the coalition.

The reason for this is simple: The Left welcomes its racist hate groups into the Mainstream of its coalition.

#BlackLivesMatter is a racist Hate Group; they were paraded on stage at the Democrat National Convention. The National Council of La Raza (The Race) is a racist hate group; and their members serve as senior policy advisors to the Democrats on “immigration.” The Muslim Brotherhood is a violent Hate Group; Hillary’s most senior advisor is a member and a former editor of a radical Islamist magazine. The Feminist Movement has become, largely, a cult of man-hatred, but Democrats proudly court the feminist vote and promise them grain from the Federal trough.

There’s no Alt-Left because hatred and extremism are at the core of the progressive movement.

And Another Thing

Some guy wrote a column in Medium claiming the sitcom ‘Friends’ brought about the downfall of our civilization: Because the smart character (Ross) was – on every episode – the object of ridicule by the dumb, pretty, hip characters (everyone else) and set the tone of our culture ever since.

He has a point.

Progressive Policies Promote Segregation

Kevin Williamson notes that America’s most progressive cities — New York, San Francisco, Detroit — are also its most segregated. And this is primarily due to progressive policies that discourage the development of affordable housing for the middle and lower classes.

 New York City’s density is well under half that of such ordinary cities as Barcelona, Buenos Aires, or Warsaw. New York is remarkable among U.S. cities for its tall buildings – and remarkable among world cities for its lack of them. Only a tiny number of New York City residences — less than 2 percent — are located in tall buildings, meaning those 20 stories or taller, far less than in comparable cities around the world. The number is even lower for cities such as Los Angeles (which actually has a higher population density than New York) and San Francisco. Building taller buildings makes urban residential real estate less expensive per square foot — you can have higher buildings or higher prices. New York, where the nice progressives want to put caps on tall buildings, has chosen higher prices — and, therefore, economic segregation, pushing the poor farther into the Bronx or New Jersey.

I don’t expect many comments on this post. This kind of thing — the dynamic interaction of policy and demographic effects — interests me, but it isn’t everyone’s cup of Earl Grey.

Let ‘Em Freeze in the Dark

The Environmentalist Extremists that run the state of Oregon have passed a law outlawing the use of coal to generate electricity.  They also oppose nuclear power. And they oppose hydroelectric power because dams are icky. Environmental Extremists have also successfully sued to prevent the development of wind power.

What does that leave? Oh, right solar power.

In Oregon.

Have you ever lived in Oregon? I have. Solar power is not exactly viable in a place where it rains, like, 270 days a year.

And they say conservatives are opposed to technological progress.

If only smug hippie liberalism could generate electricity, Oregon would look like Times Square.
