UPDATE/BUMPED: In trying to find something else in our archives, I came across this from 2016-04-24. That image is still as valid today as then and especially in light of my DISQUS Doodlings as well as on anything we report or opine on what the Left does. They are the Borg and they will not stop in any way possible to assimilate the rest of us. That is who they are. That is not what the rest of us aspire to be. Just freaking leave the rest of us alone and stop using the force of Government to do otherwise.
I am part of the Just Leave Me Alone Coalition – but the Left CANNOT stand anyone being outside of their notion of Collectivism. It echos the mantra of Fascism as defined in Mussolini’s Italy in the 1930s/1940s: According to Benito Mussolini, this system politicizes everything spiritual and human: “Everything within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.” Liberals / Democrats / Progressives in the US are rapidly walking towards this faster and faster:
At the Democrat Convention: “Government is the only thing we all belong to“; another is Government is the thing we all do together“. Remember Hillary’s “It takes a Village”? Everything is couched in terms of GroupThink and “everyone all in” or “we’re all in this together”. Socialism (except, of course, you are the one at the top, the Primo Apparatchik).
It is ALWAYS the group we, the collective group, as if they believe we all are in this together. But we’re not – but they insist and do every thing they can to make it so – there is NO freedom allowable to dissent. By this yet additional datum, we see that they hate the US Constitution (re: free association held in the First Amendment):
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
They hate the Freedom it gives us – they HAVE to have control. But just remember this – they have unilaterally performed “civilian disarmament” on themselves (heh!). They believe that NO one can succeed without “the group” – there is no individual success and, therefore, no individuality.
We see that in today’s polarized political atmosphere – the Left truly does believe that we on the Right are EVIL – and either must be “saved” – or eliminated (re: Brendan Eich, Prop 8, and what the Pro-baby killers formerly known as pro-choice now call us – using Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals to (RULE 12:) ” Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”. If they cannot force us to join, they will do anything to demonize and belittle our beliefs so as to “cut us off and cut us out” of “their mainstream”.
Ignore them, flick boogers at them, and laugh at them. Become their version of Kryptonite.
