The Left-Wing Fears Debate

Left-Winger Bill Maher invited Milo Yiannopoulos to participate in his HBO show that, as I understand it, consists mainly of leftists throwing out smug platitudes and talking points while an audience of trained seals claps like idiots.

In protest, one of the other left-wing panelists backed out, and made a big deal of virtue-signaling his reasons for doing so.

“He has ample venues to spew his hateful diatribes,” Scahill wrote. “Appearing on ‘Real Time’ will provide Yiannopoulos with a large, important platform to openly advocate his racist, anti-immigrant campaign.”

I call BS. The real reason alleged journalist Jeremy Scahill backed out is simply because he is afraid to go up against Milo; who is wittier, sharper, more appealing, and his better ideas on his side. Scahill knows he can’t win, so instead he fakes a “brave stand” and claims to be backing down out of principle. (As if leftists have principles.)

The whole attitude of the left on all matters has become “There is no need to debate. We’re right. Shut up.” This is not an attitude born of confidence, but of fear. They know their ideas are bad. They know their ideas can’t withstand honest debate. They know they can’t win. They don’t want the debate. They want an echo chamber.

People who think they can win a debate want to have the debate. People who don’t think they can win a debate want to shut it down before it happens. And if they are really afraid of losing a debate, they smash windows and set things on fire.

In related news, California won’t be sending any teams to the National Debate Tournament because it’s being held in a horrible red flyover state that isn’t as enlightened as Berkeley.

  1. Honestly, the more I meet and talk to those on the far left, it is far worse. Agreed that their attitude is “I’m right, you’re wrong, just shut up.” But they honestly do believe they are right, and think it a waste of time to back up their statements. They shouldn’t have to, because they are right! The science is settled! Just get on with it!

    I mean, look at how much like fish out of water they are over Trump winning the presidency. That was absolutely unthinkable to them on November 7th. They have been acting like people who are pinching themselves to wake up, doing anything and everything to “right this wrong” that has been done to them. ANYTHING! Because they’re right!

    The narcissism has become malignant. Their worldview MUST be maintained. It MUST.

  2. It only took just over sixty years to render those within the 2%er microcosm of progressives/libertarians/communists/national socialists/#NeverTrumpers politically and economically impotent thanks to electronic media. The judiciary still needs to be drained of 2%er marxists hostile to the COTUS and the Bill of Rights. MAGA.

  3. The regressive Left in the West is much like a late-stage algal bloom: it has exhausted its oxygen supply and is slowly dying from suffocation.

  4. Oceania newspeak update: the Party has now determined that fascism no longer means “supremacy of the state, blind loyalty to state’s beloved leader, all opposition illegal”. It now means “espousing any hurtful, hateful, anti-Party language which only the Party can properly define”. One must not debate these new fascists but use all hateful speech and hateful violence and hateful protests to quash this awful hate.

  5. craycray displays this leftist trait by announcing that those who oppose are put on a “blocked” list.

  6. Berkeley is leftier than Lawrence. Hard to believe but true.
