Victims Gotta Victim

Mother Jones has a lecture about how non-profit social justice organizations for LGBTs and racial minorities discriminate against… um… LGBT’s and racial minorities.

When it comes to professional advancement, even within explicitly LGBT-focused organizations, LGBT people of color face more challenges compared to their white counterparts or straight people of color.

In addition to the racial barriers faced by LGBT people of color, roughly 21% of LGBT respondents said that their sexual orientation had negatively affected their career advancement. They pointed to great disparities in LGBT non-discrimination laws in states across the country and reported levels of fear and frustration about the way anti-LGBT attitudes have affected their careers. The report noted the “intensity of the write-in responses… reflected a real problem with biases against LGBTQ people in too many nonprofits.”

So, leftists working for organizations whose entire raison d’etre is to kvetch about discrimination… kvetch about discrimination in the organizations they work for.

This is so delicious it must be fattening.

More Schadenfreude

Hyper-Leftist corporate entity Starbucks is being boycotted by the Left’s Favorite People because of their support for the Left’s Second-Favorite People.

Muslims Are Boycotting Starbucks Over the Company’s Pro-LGBT Stance

Parkasa, a hard-line Muslim group in Malaysia that touts around 700,000 members, is joining another Muslim group in Indonesia, Muhammadiyah, in calling for the boycott of Starbucks.

Almost 30 million people belong to Muhammadiyah, the second-largest mainstream Muslim organization in Indonesia. They have denounced the popular coffee chain over the company’s former chief executive’s past praise for the gay community. Both organizations want Starbucks’ operating license to be revoked because the stance goes against Islamic teachings.

Professional LGBT Activists Outraged About Christian Day Event

Filed under: Free Speech,Liberal Intolerance

The Lesbian Gay Bullying Totalitarians (LGBT) are angry that the St. Louis Cardinals are holding a ‘Christian Day,’ which the team has done for 30 years. They are also angry that the Cardinals are allowing former player Lance Berkman to be the spokesman for Christian Day. Berkman had previously said mean, intolerant  things (in their opinion) about the transgendereds. Like this:

The issue is, what to do about a 15 or 16-year-old boy who thinks he’s a girl and wants to shower with the girls. Maybe he is [transgender], maybe he’s confused. But I wouldn’t want him in the shower with my daughters. We shouldn’t have the rights of 2 percent of the population trump the rights of the other 98 percent.

Which is, of course, a ‘dog whistle’ for ‘Kill all the gays and transgendereds!” I guess, or something, according to the Bullying Totalitarians. (Any opinions not precisely in line with the social justice left are “Hate Speech.”) They want the event canceled, Berkman to be sent to tolerance camp, the team colors changed to pink and teal, and massive extortion payments to be made to LGBT organizations. So far, the Cardinals aren’t backing down.

Why do I suspect that a ‘Muslim Day’ would not be a problem?

How many New Yorkers salivate over Trump assassination? This many

Laura Loomer and Jack Posobiec disrupt a performance of that Julius Caesar we’ve been talking about:

YouTube Preview Image

It’s inspiring – Jack gets out the words “The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands!” – but what struck me was, the packed house. Does Shakespeare in the Park draw that kind of crowd, normally?

Laura was arrested; you can help her defense fund at freelaura.com (scroll down).

She discusses it all at length with Stefan Molyneux. After seeing it in person, she agrees with his suggestion that the staging is intentional, graphic, bloody “assassination-orgy porn” recalling ISIS tactics. (So much for any comparisons to that 2012 production in which an Obama-like Julius Caesar was handled with dignity.)

Unless the Democrat Left Stops Promoting Hate, There Will Be More Violence

In the aftermath of yesterday’s attempted mass murder of Republican congressmen (which was stopped only by Steve Scalise’s security detail and the would-be assassin’s sub-par shooting skills), the knee-jerk reactions from the Democrat left included “they deserved it because they voted against Obamacare” and “they deserved it for being against gun control” and “they deserved it for being racist.”

And this lovely Posh Being weighed in again.

More threats followed.

After the attack, the office of Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) received an email reading “One down, 216 to go”. Congressman Tom Garrett (R-Va.) needed security after receiving threats reading, “This is how we’re going to kill your wife”. Other threats described graphic atrocities against his daughters and even his dog.

Congresswoman Martha McSally (R-AZ.) went to the FBI after phone messages warning, “Martha our sights are set on you, right between your **** eyes” and “Can’t wait to **** pull the trigger.”

Democrats have used hate to fuel their political fortunes for quite a long time. From Dan Savage’s “I wish all Republicans would drop dead” to Hillary Clinton’s proud statement that “Republicans are my enemies,” to a Seattle City Councilwoman proclaiming “I don’t have any Republican friends” (she was cheered and applauded), the Democrat Left has promoted a climate of hate against Republicans. “Republicans are racist. Republicans are homophobic. Republicans hate poor people and want them to die.” Hate is what makes rich leftists write checks to the DNC. Hate is what drives the Democrat base to the polls. Hate has become the tool Democrats are most familiar and comfortable with using.

I don’t think they can stop. I don’t think Democrats know of any way, other than promoting hate against Republicans, to win elections. And as long as hate is acceptable, there will be violence.

I fear that the attempted mass murder of Republicans in Alexandria was not the apex of the left’s campaign of violent resistance against Republicans, but a harbinger of more violence to follow.

Radicalized by a Culture of Hate

Transgender person murdered co-workers because xe hated men.

Pennsylvania supermarket shooter Randy Stair left behind a trove of material explaining his motivations for gunning down three of his co-workers. In his recorded suicide notes, released just hours before Thursday’s rampage, the 24-year-old talked extensively about his depression and about who he was as a person—a transgender woman who hated men and toxic masculinity.

“And I just started hating guys more than anything. I hate guys, I think they’re [expletive] disgusting—the facial hair they have, the body hair, the muscle build, and all that [expletive] body structure [expletive]. I hate. Everything about guys I hate,” continued Stair.

I’d like to say the dude had some serious mental issues, but that would be transphobic.

The sentiments that men are disgusting, that masculinity is toxic, and that all men should be put to death are not uncommon in radical feminist circles.  The idea that masculinity is toxic has wide credence on the left, to the degree that  some universities now indoctrinate male students that they should be ashamed of maleness and strive to be more feminine.

But the anti-masculinity left need not worry about censorship. No one is going to ask them to tone down their rhetoric. It’s not like they’re white southerners or some other animals who are less equal than other animals.

The Face(book) of Evil

The Right-o-sphere is rife with personal stories of Facebook, Google/Youtube and Twitter either de-monetizing, restricting, throttling, censoring or banning conservative and libertarian voices.

Facebook seems happy to do it – while allowing Islamists the run of the place, to the point where PM Theresa May called for Internet censorship after the recent Islamist mass murders in Manchester.

Earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg said:

[Terrorist attacks are] carried out with a goal to spread fear and distrust, and turn members of a community against each other. I believe the only sustainable way to fight back against those who seek to divide us is to create a world where understanding and empathy can spread faster than hate, and where every single person in every country feels connected and cared for and loved. That’s the world we can and must build together.

This is so misguided that, coming from a nominally-intelligent man, one must almost wonder if some evil force possesses him? Because it happens to be what the wolf would say to the hounds if it could; or what Satan might say when cornered.

Newsflash, Mr. Zuckerberg: terrorist attacks are carried out with a goal of killing infidels and establishing the supremacy of Islam. Period. You have to admit a problem’s true nature, before you can solve it.

I don’t want to “fight back against those who seek to divide us.” Because that makes zero sense. Anyone who ever does anything good or new, or who takes a stand (be it true or false) on anything, “seeks to divide us.” It happens. It makes much more sense to fight back against those who seek to subjugate and/or kill us.

The terrorist losers use your own platform, Mr. Zuckerberg, and it’s not clear if you make much effort to stop them. Much less, an effort greater than what you put into stopping U.S. conservatives, or other critics of Hillary or the Big Government that you love so much.

Recently, a Pakistani man was sentenced to death for alleged blasphemy – on his Facebook page. Facebook claims innocence; “we do not provide any government with direct access to people’s data. We will continue to protect our community from unnecessary or overreaching government intervention.”

But I don’t know if I can believe that. Because:

Is Facebook an accessory to Pakistan’s judicial murder of Taimoor Raza? We need to know. I couldn’t find any recent statement about it.

And of course, that Facebook would ever give a hoot about anti-Jewish or anti-Christian blasphemy is unimaginable. (As it should be; the point here is Facebook’s extreme double standard.)

Right now it appears that Facebook puts WAY more into stopping conservatives and libertarians – people who stand for life and liberty – than it puts into stopping various kinds of Islamic murderer. That’s evil.

Hat tip Steven Crowder. By the way, his Painting Muhammad video is must-see.

Kathy Griffin fired, but is that enough?

CNN has fired Kathy Griffin from their next New Year’s Eve program. As V noted earlier, she posed for a so-called ‘artist’ with herself holding a blood-drenched, beheaded effigy of President Trump. In a single image, she managed to align herself with Islam (or ISIS imagery), Satanism (or satanic imagery), and assassination of the President of the United States.

To his minor credit, Anderson “Vanderbilt” Cooper tweeted “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.” (Minor because it’s something he should have done hours faster, and perhaps an understatement.)

It remains to be seen whether Hollywood and the Left will actually shun Griffin, or rehabilitate her once the dust settles? After all, the first reaction of a CNN panel (led by Jake Tapper) was a dismissive “We’ve got much bigger issues to focus on.”

And indeed, they do. After all, CNN is the Home of Fake News, such as:

  • proclaiming that Hillary is somehow healthy and a lock to win the election;
  • pushing the fake/scripted views of a seven year old as a serious reason for the U.S. to make war in Syria; and
  • pushing evidence-free, anonymously-sourced innuendo against Trump.

But maybe CNN’s dismissive, first reaction didn’t focus-group very well?

The whole thing got me thinking about denunciations in general. After all, conservatives and libertarians are supposed to denounce every little thing done by every little kook – or else we somehow are that thing. Recently,

  • Jacob Schwartz was arrested for child pornography. He isn’t a nobody. He is a longtime Democrat activist and staffer. His father is a huge Democrat donor and insider, having served as an Obama delegate and a lawyer for Bernie Sanders, the SEIU and ACORN (remember them?).

    Young-ish Jacob allegedly possessed graphic images of a 6-month old baby being raped. He was a top staffer to NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. Schwartz also appeared on Chris Cuomo’s program on CNN (them again!). Hillary’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, can be seen standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Schwartz – or at least he could, before Schwartz’s arrest triggered Democrats into disappearing the inconvenient photo.

    My question is, has Robby Mook denounced Schwartz, in no uncertain terms? Has Hillary Clinton? Or the DNC? Or CNN? Has Chris Cuomo indicated his regret at having Schwartz as a guest? I couldn’t find any such statements.

    Each of them, who has not yet done such a statement, therefore supports pedophiles and pedophilic rape – if we apply the Left’s usual logic about these things.

  • Marina Abramović is another left-wing “artist” who promotes imagery and practices that are awfully reminiscent of Satanism, with that Spirit Cooking thing she’s into.

    John Podesta is, of course, one of THE top Clintonites, as he was Hillary’s campaign chair and her preference for Secretary of State.

    It’s known that Podesta was invited, on warmly intimate terms, to a private Spirit Cooking “dinner” that his brother Tony probably attended, and which Podesta himself may have attended.

    Has either of the Podestas denounced Satanism, or at least Abramović? Has Hillary Clinton denounced either of the Podestas? I don’t think so.

    Again, apply the Left’s typical logic of you-are-clearly-for-that-bad-thing-if-we-don’t-agree-that-you-have-denounced-it-enough, and see where it would go, here.

  • And don’t get me started about Antifa – and the failure of many lefties to denounce their violence.

So, firing Kathy Griffin from a New Year’s Eve program that was going to happen in 7 more months: is that enough? Or should we call for more? If yes, what?

UPDATE: She says “I went too far, and I was wrong.”

Umm, “too far” in what? When I go too far, it’s because I love something. I ate too much chocolate or lemon pie. I tried to power clean too much weight. So, if Kathy “went too far” in making visible her fantasy of beheading the President and soaking his head in the blood, then deep in her soul, she loves…??? Something about this is still “off”.

White People Should Not Be Allowed to Cook Mexican Food

The above is the latest politically correct wisdom from the social justice left; which shut down a burrito restaurant in Portlandia because it was run by white women.

One commenter said: “Now that you all boldly and pretty fucking unapologetically stole the basis of these women’s livelihoods, you can make their exact same product so other white ppl don’t have to be inconvenienced of dealing with a pesky brown middle woman getting in their way. Great job.”

Another commenter explained what’s basically a sad truth underlying the Portland restaurant community: “If you knew anything of the restaurant industry (or Google) you’d know that this is true. ‘Ethnic’ chefs are expected to ‘cook from their ethnic backgrounds’ while White chefs can do what these two horrid women did: vacation somewhere and ‘get inspired’ and appropriate an entire culture’s cuisine and claim it as their own.”

Immediately after the fury continued online, a different resource emerged and quickly went viral: a Google doc showing exactly how prevalent this epidemic is. The list titled “White-Owned Appropriative Restaurants in Portland” provides a who’s who of culinary white supremacy.

The New Civil War

For the last 100 years – and, especially for the last 8 years under President Obama – more and more Americans have become feckless dependents of government.

They may be rich, middle class or poor. They may depend on government benefits, or on special favors written into our laws and regulations. Or they may be politicians and bureaucrats and government workers, deciding the fates of other people and taking paychecks a good deal larger than what most of them could get in the private sector. They may be journalists taking cash payments from the CIA, or billionaires with extensive government contracts.

And they are indeed feckless. They gladly believe and spread the most ridiculous things on zero evidence. For example, they choose a criminally dishonest politician (Hillary Clinton) to be president. When she doesn’t quite win the election, they gladly believe and spread rumors that the guy who did win is a Russian spy – on zero evidence, again – and chant “F*ck [him]!” at important political conventions.

On the other side are ordinary Americans who more-or-less believe in God, common sense, and supporting themselves through work. Again, they may be rich, middle class or poor. They choose 2 business people in a row to be president. The most recent one might not be a great role model in some ways, but at least he says sensible things in a forthright, unafraid manner. When he wins the election, he sets himself to the task of reviving America’s economy and manufacturing base – only to be undermined by the vast army and bureaucracy of the feckless government dependents, spreading their nonsense.

It’s a mortal conflict. And one side knows it: the feckless government dependents. Because America is fast reaching the point where it can’t afford to support them any longer. They, the cancer, are about to kill the host. They, the cancer, must be controlled and cut back – so that the rest of America can survive, and perhaps revive a little.

They, the feckless government dependents, know it deep-down. And, being out-of-control like any late-stage cancer, they are desperate to deny it and to continue a system – their own system – that promises to extract every last drop of life and treasure that can be extracted from normal Americans.

It’s Producers vs. Looters. Understand that the Producers are people of all classes and walks of life. Likewise, the Looters are people of all classes and walks of life.

And so we arrive at the political struggles of the last seven months. President Trump isn’t perfect. I did not support him. I still don’t support him, whenever and wherever I may disagree with him. But, somehow (and although I never wanted it), he became a leader for the Producers – or at least for the opponents of America’s looting, criminal Establishment. Imperfect Mr. Trump is the president we’ve got. And the vast army and bureaucracy of the feckless government dependents are determined to destroy him.

Thus the endless, utter nonsense they spew each day. I’m not sure what to do about it. I know that supporting Trump blindly will not help. But tolerating nonsense will also not help.

The only thing I know how to do, that might help in some tiny way, is to keep telling the truth as I see it unfolding around me.

Or posting links.

Schlichter sums it up well: “Someone came to Washington who wasn’t part of the club, and that’s intolerable. So they are desperate to expel him, and by extension, us. Every day will be a crisis, every action he takes will be the worst thing that has ever happened, and every step towards keeping his promises a crime.”

Each day, let us dedicate ourselves anew to rejecting the nonsense. And to offering truth, in its place.

Do Hollywood Writers Know Any Actual Christians?

On a recent episode of Law and Order: SVU (which I was amazed to learn is still in production), the storyline concerned… I am not making this up… a Christian church that encourages teenagers to rape other teenagers to keep them from turning gay.

SVU’s writers saved their coup de grace for the final minutes of the episode. In those last moments, the audience learns that Lucas himself is a closeted homosexual, and the priest told him to have sex with Ann as penance for his own homoerotic thoughts.

Yeah, because Christian ministers *always* encourage teenagers to engage in premarital sex to ward off Teh Ghey.

It’s like everything Hollywood knows about Christianity comes from The Handmaids Tale: which is nothing but a paranoid fantasy of what the world would be like if Christians acted like Muslims.

People Against Goodness And Normalcy

Posted by V the K at 10:44 pm - May 10, 2017.
Filed under: Liberal Intolerance

To the left, it’s perfectly normal for a person with a meat and two veg between its legs to claim to be a woman and be entitled to be treated as a woman. It’s also perfectly normal for a person with a vajayjay to claim to be a man and be celebrated as a male pregnancy. It’s also totally normal for a man claiming to be a woman to win prizes for beating up other women. Also, it’s OK to be a serial abuser of women as long as it’s OK with your wife; Right Mr. Clinton?

So what does the left consider weird? A guy who respects his wife enough not to put himself in potential compromising situations with other women. A guy who thinks that a stay-at-home mother is more responsive to her children’s emotional needs than a minimum wage child care worker.

Apparently, Mike Pence doesn’t believe that women can balance the demands of life, careers, and kids. Pence wrote a letter to the Indianapolis Star in 1997, in which he warned that women “can have it all” but that their children will get “the short end of the emotional stick.”

The Left Actively Seeks Violence

It’s last year’s news, but worth remembering. George Soros, Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid (and probably still pay) protestors, not only to turn out and carry signs or chant slogans, but also to instigate violence.

It’s on people’s radar in the last day or so because The Washington Post now says, who cares if these left-wing protestors are paid shills? So, what? Which is a shift: the Controlled Media used to simply deny that these left-wing protestors were paid shills.

Antifa: A Terrorist, Criminal Conspiracy as dangerous as the Mafia

Terrorists are people who:

  • won’t fight as part of a regular military; and who
  • mainly attack others who are not part of a regular military (that is, civilians); in order to
  • intimidate people into accepting (or not dissenting from) the terrorists’ political viewpoint.

Guess what? That’s Antifa.

Antifa is also a conspiracy to commit crimes. As one of our fine commentors recently suggested, they may be compared to other criminal conspiracies. Here’s my take.

  • On the one hand, Antifa “only” plans crimes of felony assault and vandalism (that could get out of hand and become manslaughter or murder, semi-accidentally). In that way, they’re a bit less dangerous than the Mafia (which plans specific murders).
  • On the other hand, many of the Mafia’s crimes are intra-Mafia. Not so with Antifa, ALL of whose crimes are directed at the larger society. In that way, they’re more dangerous than the Mafia.

Where is the FBI, on Antifa? Or the Department of Justice?

Boom!

Leftist Pederasty Advocate George Takei joined the “Mike Pence Loves His Wife; Let’s Get Him” Liberal Hatefest with this Tweet.

Pence won’t have dinner alone with a woman who’s not his wife. Literally, he won’t, ever: No woman in her right mind would sit through that.

Dana Loesch shot back:

If you want Pence to stay out of your relationships, try staying out of his.

It’s Middle School Girls All the Way Down

ThinkProgress editor tries to take a cheap shot at Marco Rubio’s “wife.” Ends up insulting the wife of a political prisoner.  This kind of thing happens a lot, because the left is ignorant and mean.

Irony, Chutzpah, or Gall?

A Berkeley liberal (with the usual complete lack of self-awareness) praises the success of her violent, Black Bloc/Antifa allies.

“I think shutting down and forcing the cancellation of a white supremacist like Milo Yiannopoulos was a stunning achievement….”

“It isn’t a question of free speech,” said Felarca. “This is about our right to be free of intimidation.” [Emphasis added.]

The person who said that is a public school teacher in the Berkeley Unified School District.

For every violent thug in a black mask at the Berkeley Riot, there were 5 “non-violent” protesters proving him cover; ten people who know who they are but won’t tell the police;  and ten or a hundred thousand liberals nodding and saying, “I don’t totally agree with their tactics, but I like the result.”

Say what you will about how “Antifa” is a violent minority; but it only takes 1 dog to move a thousand sheep.

It is notable that Milo Yiannopoulos — a gay, Jewish immigrant with a penchant for interracial coupling — is the object of the left’s Two-Minutes Hate. They hate him with such passion because he proves that two of the most dearly held beliefs of the American left are false. 1. That the right-wing hates gays and immigrants and would never accept one as their own. 2. That the left is open-minded, thoughtful, and tolerant.

San Francisco Leftists Outraged and Fearful That Immigrants Are Taking Over Their Neighborhoods

As long as Somali refugees and other Third World migrants are seeded into small cities in the Midwest, the lefty-loos of San Francisco are all for it. But don’t go sticking those dirty brown foreigners* in their neighborhoods.

City meetings have become heated, divisive and prone to rhetoric where we openly discuss exactly which kinds of people we want to keep out of our city.

This is an ethically incoherent position. If we in San Francisco so strongly believe that national immigration is a human right, then it seems strange to block migration into our own neighborhoods.

Consider the San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ decision to challenge the environmental review of a proposed housing project at 1515 Van Ness Ave. Despite the project’s plan to rent 25 percent of its units at a below-market rate, many members of the neighborhood preservation group, Calle 24, expressed anger that the project might bring tech workers into the Latino Cultural District.

Or that members of the Forest Hill homeowners association opposed a project that would build affordable housing for seniors and the formerly homeless on a site now occupied by a church. One of the grievances aired was that it might bring mentally unstable or drug-addicted people into the neighborhood.

“Tech Workers” appears to be a liberal dog-whistle for “dirty brown foreigners.” (The distaste the San Francisco left has for immigrants is so profound, it extends even to those in the country legally and contributing to the economy.)

Even more pointedly, more than a third of Silicon Valley tech workers are immigrants themselves. For many people in China, India and Eastern Europe, working in technology is one of the few ways out of their countries and into ours.

* Note, my use of “dirty brown foreigners” is intended as irony and sarcasm. I shouldn’t have to point that out, but many leftists are humorless and stupid.

Trump Derangement Syndrome Cripples Brave Woman

Strong independent woman finds herself emotionally crippled and unable to form a relationship… because Trump was elected.

I’ve lost the desire to attempt the courtship phase. The future is uncertain. I am not the optimistic person I was on the morning of Nov. 8, wearing a T-shirt with “Nasty Woman” written inside a red heart. It makes me want to cry thinking of that. Of seeing my oldest in the shirt I bought her in Washington, D.C., that says “Future President.”

There is no room for dating in this place of grief. Dating means hope. I’ve lost that hope in seeing the words “President-elect Trump.”

This is not the Onion.

Many of the comments agree, this woman is a wreck and any man she isn’t dating should feel relieved.

Another conspicuous display of emotional extortion in the Left’s ongoing theatrical production of “You Did This To Me.”

Can the Left Ever Move Beyond Hate?

Posted by V the K at 9:33 am - December 2, 2016.
Filed under: Liberal Intolerance

The campaign staffs of Donald Trump and Hillary Rodham Clinton got together for a forum at Harvard. It got ugly, very quickly, with the bitter, angry Hillary staffers (represented by campaign managers Jennifer Palmieri and Robby Mook, and pollster-strategist Joel Benenson) repeatedly calling the Trimp campaign “white supremacist” and accusing the Trump campaign of being “run on hate and bigotry.” At one point, Palmieri declared, “I would rather lose than win the way you guys did.”

Some of this is simple bitterness…. their candidate lost, and they don’t get to spend the next 4-8 years riding around on Air Force 1 and telling people how to live their lives backed up by immense state power. That’s a hell of a thing to lose. But they can’t accept their loss as being a matter of one campaign making its case better than the other.

I take Palmieri’s “I would rather lose than win the way you guys did” to mean she would rather lose by calling half of the country racist “deplorables” than win by speaking to the legitimate economic concerns of middle America. I don’t think she thinks this is how she meant it, but it is, actually, how she meant it.

In the article. Palmieri says the infamous “Deplorables” speech was her proudest moment in the entire campaign. Ponder that. Her proudest moment was when her candidate called half of the country racist, bigoted, and deplorable.
Why would that make someone feel proud, unless it served to validate how she herself felt about the half of the country that disagreed with her on political issues. And if elected, don’t you think she would have been more inclined to punish those deplorables, rather than compromise with them?

Hate isn’t something the left feels, hate is what the left is. The vast majority of leftists defines themself by who they hate: “racists” who won’t buy into the false narratives promoted by Black Lives Matter, “xenophobes” who don’t support mass third world immigration, “bigots” who don’t celebrate gayness, “wingnuts” who think the Constitution ought to be the law of the land, “greedy” businessmen and working people who don’t want to give up more of their money to support bureaucrats and welfare ticks, “misogynists and sexists” who don’t believe that consensual sex becomes rape if a woman changes her mind three weeks later. Hate is a big part of a leftist’s identity. Changing an opinion is simple, changing a feeling can be hard, changing an identity is extremely hard.

In conclusion, no, I don’t think the left is ever going to get beyond hate. They are all DailyKos now. (Speaking of which, here’s some first-rate angry derangement.) They are never going to agree to disagree with us, they are always going to hate us.

So, what are we going to do about that?
