Required Reading For Lefties

I've seen few better examples of the morally bankrupt non-philosophy of the left than that which is contained in this exposition by Norman Podhoretz . The whole foundation of the Left is a lie; their strategies are founded on lies; their tactics wrapped in lies. It is their lies and their dogged promotion of them which are the most repugnant part of their whole movement. Read it all.

As time passes and more information becomes available, it is clear Saddam Hussein possessed large quantities of chemical weapons. It is clear he was attempting to establish nuclear capability. It is clear he had the UN eating out of his hand, to the extraodinary degree that even the official definition of WMD was so 'tight' he could use it to his advantage. It is clear he was financing terrorism. It is clear he was being aided and abetted by France and Russia.

I do not suggest Saddamite Iraq was the only 'bad egg' but that is not the issue here. A start had to be made somewhere and Iraq was the chosen initial field of battle.

More and more, criticism of the Bush administraion is rightly pointing at a failure to confront and stand up to the endless tirade of lies and misinformation from the left in the US, Europe and New Zealand.

It is my expectation that within a relatively short time, the bulk of Allied troops will be withdrawn from Iraq and will become available to focus on the next chosen field of the battle in this serious and real Third World War which has been going on now since well before September 2001.

It sums up leftism in general really. Leftism is all about using sophistry, spin, downright lies and ridicule as tools to control the debate, with the ultimate goal of gaining power and inflicting their views and opinions of the world on the rest of us. Morally, lefties believe themselves to be infallible, so any means is justified and, acceptable.

Well Yes, Adolf, French troops are needed on their 'home front.'
The suburbs need to be brought back under the full control of the French government.
Other European capitals need to do likewise.
If Europe's long term security needs the repatriation of many muslims and others back to their country of ethnic origin, then so be it.
As an immigrant myself, I know I have to live by the customs and laws of this land. Never will I resort to terror or violence.
I also do my utmost to fit in. I do not expect the government to bend over backwards to me, as seems to be happening in France.

And I look forward to reading the commentary piece in the NZ Herald.
Would make a lovely double-page spread in the sunday star-times, don't you think?

The Socialists world view is beginning to crumble around them But they will never admit defeat.They will continue to find someone else to blame You see in their world black is white and white is black if they say so.And anyone who disagrees or wishes to question them is shut down as a redneck or racist or both.They are the Evil Empire

"Leftism is all about using sophistry, spin, downright lies and ridicule as tools to control the debate, with the ultimate goal of gaining power and inflicting their views and opinions of the world on the rest of us."

And the right never use spin, lies or ridicule.

It says ALL about. Sure some righties use spin, but ultimately the right is for individual freedom which doesn't exactly need distortion and lies to promote.

Isn't it interesting how the most distortive and repressive NZ bloggers are lefties? For example - how many of them delete links to undesirable information (e.g. Jordan Carter)? How many of them are so willing to label anything the CIA does as 'torture' while simultaneously excusing or ignoring the infinitely worse actions of many other countries (e.g. I/S)? How many of them make incorrect claims and then refuse to retract or apologise (e.g. Russell Brown)? etc. How many of them rant and rave about putting the first capitalist pig against the wall (e.g. millsy)?

Again with the sweeping generalisations.

I take it you don't read Mr Tips, or NZPundit, or IHateSocialism, or Oh Crikey, or Not PC, or No Turning Left.

How many of them rant and rave about putting the first capitalist pig against the wall (e.g. millsy)?

Can you find another example. I'd be concerned if you were using millsy as your example of a 'typical' lefty blogger.

No it's not a sweeping generalisation. It's the belief promotion of authoritarian collectivist solutions necessarily requires the repression of information and the debasement of argument.

As I said, some righties also use the same methods to push their own agendas (normally of a moral nature, or for self-profit). But by definition the 'right' does not include economic authoritarianism, faith in which is the fundamental basis of all leftist movements and political organisations.

Re: bloggers. Do the examples you list delete rational arguments and counter-evidence? Do they post smears and refuse to allow feedback? No, they do not. They do receive personal abuse from anonymous leftie commenters though, as does Sir Humphrey's.

Millsy was given as an example of a complete nutball (though at least he allows comments, unlike Brown). Why don't you give a counter-example of a rightie blogger who wants to run the streets red with the blood of Labour Party members.

In fact any specific examples would be welcomed.

Could you use shorter words, please?

Any examples of what, exactly? Crazed right-wing rants?

Any specific examples of anything you talk about would be appreciated.

And no I can't really use shorter words.

But I'll add that I ended High School being a bit of a liberal twat, with the crucial difference I didn't absorb blinding hatred of the United States (family reasons).

I spent a good few years figuring out for myself by examination of the source material that teachers at high school were feeding me crap. At that point in time I thought it was because they were simply ignorant and too intellectually lazy to bother investigating anything themselves.

Now many years later I've come to the conclusion they were politicised, heavily invested in (then new) NZ liberal leftwing mentality, and repressing any opinions not fitting that mentality (or maybe that is intellectual laziness).

Just like our many opponent leftwing bloggers. And anyone who disagrees with them is labelled 'nasty', or 'mouth-foaming'.

That would be okay if they were offering any new ideas. But they don't; they seem perfectly happy trotting out all the old lines.

And now it appears many reporters are similarly minded, if not outright liars for their cause (see: Espiner).
