AND STILL ANOTHER FORMER LIBERAL SPEAKS OUT ON WHY HE GOT FED UP

why-i-left-the-leftTo give readers a break from my blog posts about how much contempt I’ve come to feel for the political left that I used to be a part of, I periodically post these articles about others who have come to feel the same way.

In this case it’s Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report fame. The link to the full item is below. First some excerpts:  

“Do you believe in free speech?

“Do you believe that people should be judged by their character, not their skin color?

“Do you believe in freedom of religion?

“If you believe these things, you’re probably not a progressive. You might think you’re a progressive. I used to think I was. My show, The Rubin Report, was originally part of the progressive The Young Turks network.

rubin-report“Progressives used to say, “I may disagree with what you say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it.” Not anymore.

“Banning speakers whose opinions you don’t agree with from college campuses – that’s not progressive.

“Prohibiting any words not approved of as ‘politically correct’ that’s not progressive.

“Putting ‘Trigger Warnings’ on books, movies, music, anything that might offend people – that’s not progressive either.

“All of this has led me to be believe that much of the Left is no longer progressive, but regressive. This is one of the reasons I’ve spent so much time on my show talking about The Regressive Left. Continue reading

RESEARCH FELLOW: AMERICAN COLLEGES ARE CREATING A GENERATION OF BIGOTS

teresa-mullHere in (Ivory Tower)-land things become what they are called rather than being called what they are.” – From Aristophanes’ satire The Birds

Balladeer’s Blog has often covered the Faculty Lounge Fascists who pretend to be “educators” (LMFAO) at American colleges and universities. Those secular missionaries for the Democrats are either Left-Wing Archie Bunkers from the 1960s generation OR had the misfortune of being “educated” (LMFAO) by Left-Wing Archie Bunkers from the 1960s generation. 

Call them what you will but they continue to stand athwart the maturation process crying “halt,” to twist a very old saying. Below is a link to an article by Teresa Mull who discusses the closing of young minds on American campuses.

POMPOUS LEFT-WING ARCHIE BUNKERS STRIKE BACK

hippy

1960s Democrats: They’re so HIP!

The Left-Wing Archie Bunkers of the “academic” (LMFAO) world are so hilariously pretentious that it’s always fun to ridicule them, especially because they are as easily offended as the worst Christian Conservatives used to be.

Anyway, there is so much to make fun of them about that I forgot an item yesterday. (Sorry about all the political posts recently but it’s an election year here so it’s impossible to avoid this nonsense.)  

That item regards their pompous belief that they are High Priests and Priestesses of Racial Awareness sitting in judgment on everyone else. Trust me, you self-important fools, out in the REAL world – not the prolonged adolescence of the “academic” (LMFAO) world that you hide in – we adults of different races and different religions have been getting along peacefully for quite a long time.  

None of us have ever sat around saying to ourselves “Boy, I’ll bet the pretentious asses of the academic world would be just ever so proud of all of us for getting along like we do!” We don’t fixate on race like you hatemongers do. In workplaces unafflicted by large numbers of hypersensitive fools we treat each other as HUMAN BEINGS, a foreign concept to you secular clergy members.

IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE LEFT-WING ARCHIE BUNKERS AND THAT DOESN’T ADDRESS YOUR CONCERN I PROBABLY COVERED IT IN THIS ITEM  Continue reading

YET ANOTHER FORMER LIBERAL DISGUSTED WITH THE LEFT

old hippy

It’s always 1967 to a large segment of the American Left.

Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog know how useless and outdated I find the old labels “Liberal” and “Conservative” to be. I considered myself a Liberal back before American Liberals adopted their motto “Islam: Right or Wrong.”

Michael Faraday (NOT pictured) is another in the long line of people that the increasingly demented political left has driven away. So here are some more reflections from somebody else who became disgusted with the complacent and self-infatuated left – especially the close-minded classroom liberals of the 1960s generation that Faraday came from:

“For the millions raised as leftists, it is not an ideology; it is a culture. Since childhood, they have lived and breathed it every day in the home. They know nothing else. Like any culture, it is a way of speaking, thinking and acting, with its own narratives and rituals. Narratives are held sacred, repeated, reinforced and, over time, added to. That which challenges sacred narratives, even reality itself, is met with confusion and hostility.”

“Leftists combine child-like naïveté and paranoid aggression in all of their narratives. It is a remarkable and very damaging pairing. The child-like naïveté protects the narrative from facts while the paranoid aggression protects the mind from doubt.”

“It (21st century liberalism) harnesses together childish emotions and paranoid thought processes. Its narratives are a filter that reality has to try to struggle through, often failing. The child-like thinking solves all problems without pesky details and facts interfering, leading to delusions of intellectual brilliance.” (Balladeer: Especially true of American Liberals

LEFT-WING ARCHIE BUNKERS: THE SIXTIES

Every war is the Vietnam War!

Every war is the Vietnam War!

Welcome back to Balladeer’s Blog, the only site on the web that offers non-partisan criticism of Liberals and Conservatives. This post is part of my series in which I examine the construction of political myths. At this particular point in history American Liberals are more hubristic and in need of criticism so I’ll start with their political myths first.

As we “deconstruct” some of the concepts and figures held sacred by the hilariously pretentious asses of American Liberalism much of the fun will come from the huffy indignation they display when their own outdated value system is subjected to the same critical eye which they use to regard others. Most Liberals of the 1960s generation have become left-wing Archie Bunkers, forever living in the past.

THE 1960s – You’ve heard of the book The Greatest Generation? Well the American youth of the 1960s have earned a name as “the most self-aggrandizing generation.”  The 60s generation has never forgiven the land of their birth for the fact that life was not as simple and pleasant as what they saw on episodes of Father Knows Best or The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. They grew up … well, American Liberals NEVER grow up, so let’s instead say they “grew older” while Continue reading
