Here at Balladeer’s Blog I’ve written plenty about how disgusted I became with the way that American Liberalism (really “illiberalism”) has devolved into a faith-based belief system as irrational as any other religion. So for a change of pace I’m once again linking to an article by another disillusioned figure expressing such sentiments.
The link is below but first some quotes:
“On leaving the SJW cult and finding myself I’ve been undergoing a pretty significant change in the way I interpret the world and how to ‘be’ in it.”
“I see increasing numbers of so-called liberals cheering censorship and defending violence as a response to speech. I see seemingly reasonable people wishing death on others and laughing at escalating suicide and addiction rates of the white working class.
“I see liberal think pieces written in opposition to expressing empathy or civility in interactions with those with whom we disagree. I see Trump voters written off as “nazis” who are okay to target with physical violence. I see concepts like equality and justice being used as a mask for resentful, murderous rage.
“How easy is it for ordinary humans to commit atrocious acts? History teaches us it’s pretty damn easy when you are blinded to your own hypocrisy. When you believe you are morally superior, when you have dehumanized those you disagree with, you can justify almost anything. In a particularly vocal part of the left, justification for dehumanizing and committing violence against those on the right has already begun.
“Since shedding the prison of my former ideology, I have a renewed passion for reading, a newfound interest in philosophy, psychology, history and spirituality. Instead of trying to fix others, these days I try to focus on improving myself …” Continue reading
The sexual tension is palpable!
Welcome back to the Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog, the Open City in an America being torn to pieces by uncompromising liberal and conservative fanatics. As the only site on the ‘net that is truly non- partisan in its criticism of liberal zombies and conservative zombies Balladeer’s Blog now takes a look at the many, many, MANY mindless cliches that mean so much to left-wing and right-wing zealots but that make the rest of us (AKA “adults”) laugh and roll our eyes.
If you can actually use the following expressions without chuckling with contempt you’re a liberal zombie: Continue reading
Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog are familiar with how cowardly and hypocritical I consider left- wing zealots to be because of the way they pound on Christianity’s outdated attitude toward homosexuality but are far too meek and timid to criticize Islam for having the same, if not worse, homophobic mindset.
My fellow blogger Harry at Dribbling Pensioner has posted a Continue reading
Welcome back to the Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog, the Open City in an America increasingly torn apart by Liberal zealots and Conservative zealots. This is the only place on the web that is truly non-partisan in its criticism of the political fanatics of the left and the right. No matter what your political persuasion there’s plenty here that will entertain you because I don’t show any reverence for either side of the spectrum.
America’s Liberals and Conservatives are so out of touch with reality that they actually think everybody has to be either one or the other. Because I make no secret out of the fact that I think they are both equally narrow-minded and equally intolerant of political diversity they sometimes try to call me a “fence-sitter” or a “middle of the roader”. This illustrates their lack of understanding of the terms.
A fence-sitter is someone who refrains from making their feelings on the issues clear. They avoid committing to one side of the question or the other, trying to skate by without angering anyone. Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog know that I’m not bashful about clearly expressing my views, its just that, like with many other people, I don’t force myself to mindlessly adopt a whole grocery list of opinions just to make sure I conform to either the Liberal mold or the Conservative one.
For example, here’s exactly where I stand on two issues that no “fence-sitter” or “middle of the roader” would clarify their views on. Continue reading
Political zealots are going out of their way to prove that they are every bit as destructive and, ultimately, as self-serving as religious zealots. Here in the United States the lunatic fringe of each party has become the mainstream of those parties. No matter how much gibberish gets spouted about how candidates want to try to appear “centrist” the reality is that every election cycle since at least the late 1960’s American voters have been getting subjected to the same tiresome dance. Democrats accuse Republicans of being wealth- hording racists and Republicans accuse Democrats of being unpatriotic pagans. I’m an Independent Voter and I’ll periodically post about the similarities between the slimy demagogues of the political left and the political right in the months to come.
To start us off let’s look at Reason Number 1 Why Liberals and Conservatives are the same kind of people:
Liberals think they are Continue reading
