No Truce With the LeftThe Left is not about partials, any more than Islamists are about hudna. Total conquest is their aim, and if it comes through smaller antithesis/synthesis increments, then they will pretend to accommodate a compromise which they fully intend to violate as soon as is convenient.
"Republicans are still trying to figure out a truce on gay marriage. They retreated to civil unions, then accepted a full defeat on gay marriage and then acted baffled when Christian bakery owners were dragged into court for refusing to participate in gay weddings. When the left insisted that gay marriage was a civil rights issue, they refused to take them as their word.
Now they're wondering how an accommodation can be made with tranny rights. A brief look back at gay rights will show that the only possible accommodation is one in which men in dresses have a legal right to use the ladies room and every single closed female space and event. And yes, that means your business will be shut down if you object to Steve using the female locker room."
Vox's SJW Laws:
1. SJWs always lie.Until recently I was dubious about the "always" part; no longer. And I think that there is another SJW Law:
2. SJWs always double down.
3. SJWs always project.
4. SJWs require total conquest through total cultural destruction and will never stop until it is achieved, or they are defeated and dismantled.There is no end to the Class War, and it has been successful in its indoctrination of several generations of school children who became school teachers, politicians, journalists, community activists. SJWs now infest the military, police forces, border "security" and judiciaries. And their accommodationist/useful-idiots infest the Republican Party.
"After a few skirmishes, some fundraising and angry letters, the accommodationists will find ways to accommodate that and we can look forward to conservative activists eagerly crowing about the first gay Republican presidential candidate around say, 2024, and the first Republican man in a dress in the Senate around the same time.As I have frequently said here, pedophilia is part of the Kinseyan spectrum of normal sexual behaviors (Kinsey very likely being a pedophile himself). After all, pedophiles are "born that way", just as the claim goes for homosexuals; so it is as normal as homosexuality, and all the arguments for normalization of homosexuality apply to pedophilia in a one-to-one mapping. Marriage extensions downward in age would accommodate the "loving relationship not to be denied its fruition" between adult and child, as is commonly done in Islam, which already accommodates pedophilia - and remember that Islam is the loving pet of the Left. And remember too, that for the Left it is never "RAPE-rape", if it is done by one of their own (just ask Whoopi Goldberg about Roman Polanski).
Of course by then it will be something else. Maybe pedophiles. Gay rights activists don't like the analogy, but their movement and its assorted allies, particularly in Europe's Green parties, have a long history of advocating it. The same pop culture methods that were used to sell gay rights and Bruce Jenner can easily be flipped around to sell NAMBLA."
In the ramp-up to WWII, the accommodationists ceded many lives and nations to Hitler, and Britain would likely have been lost were it not for a semi-sane USA coming to their aid, albeit fairly late. There is no visible analog in the Culture War. There is no large, resource rich, bigger brother to step in and rid us of the culture warrior infestation. We have to do it ourselves, and it might be too late.
If we are to take the same approach - no compromise, only total defeat - as the culture warriors take, it will require the warrior's steadfastness of the Allies in WWII: total unconditional surrender, and fight to the death until that is achieved. That commitment seems beyond the capabilities of the remaining constitutionalists in the USA today.
Weaponized words have no impact in this war because the SJWs lie: they promise on bibles to protect the constitution and constitutional rights while having every intention of violating that oath. They have already weaponized the hot button words of "justice, tolerance, equality, freedom and liberty", by inverting their meanings such that those principles apply only to themselves, while reserving judicial abuse for those who are not them. In short, words have no actual meanings for SJWs. The time for words is long past. Squelching class warfare peacefully is not likely to happen.
"The left does not care about gay rights. If you doubt that, consider how many of the left's favorite Muslim countries have gay rights. The left has recently divided its campaign passions between gay marriage and defending Iran. Iran denies the existence of gays and hangs them where it finds them.The alternatives are rather bleak. It is easy to dominate a peaceful people if you condone "moral" brutality; it is not so easy for the chronically peaceful to rise up forcefully against tyrannical despots. The chronically peaceful are frogs in a pot, tolerating ever hotter water. There is a revulsion to bringing violence to stop a "peaceful" takeover by the despots.
The USSR treated homosexuality as a crime even while it was recruiting gay men as spies in the West. Cuba, the darling of the American left, hated both gays and blacks. The ACLU backed the police states of Communism. If the left supports an enemy nation, the odds are excellent that it is also a violently bigoted place that makes a KKK rally look like a hippie hangout.
To understand the left, you need to remember that it does not care about 99 percent of the things it claims to care about. Name a leftist cause and then find a Communist country that actually practiced it. Labor unions? Outlawed. Environmentalism? Chernobyl. The left fights all sorts of social and political battles not because it believes in them, but to radicalize, disrupt and take power.
The left does not care about social justice. It cares about power."
But what other choice is available? I see none.
"There's a long human history to such atrocities, to mobs whipping themselves up into spasms of manufactured outrage, subsuming their own doubts, confusion and unhappiness into the 'cause'.There are really only two political conditions: individual liberty which produces peace, and despotically enforced peace. Between these two end-points is war, the struggle for control of the endpoint destiny.
The cause is progress, but the real cause is the power of its enforcers to vent their unhappiness and destructive impulses on everyone else under the guise of reform.
You can't find common ground with the left because it is an activist machine dedicated to destroy common ground, not only with the right, but even with its own allies on the left. Progress turns what was once progressive into what is reactionary. And what was reactionary into what is progressive."
"The left will destroy the things you care about, because you care about them. It will destroy them because that gives them power over you. It will destroy them because these things stand in the way of its power. It will destroy them because a good deal of its militant activists need things to destroy and if they can't attack you, they'll turn on the left in a frenzy of ideologically incestuous purges.It was not that long ago that the Amazing Randi had to do a rapid belly-crawl penitence after the outrage poured upon him for slightly questioning AGW. He had to scramble to be reinstated after his ideological blunder. He committed ideological treason, as did Antony Flew when he abandoned Atheism and was symbolically eviscerated for having done so.
The left's social justice program is really a wave of these purges which force their own people to hurry up and conform to whatever the Party dictated this week. Examples are made out of laggards on social media to encourage the rest to stop thinking and start marching in line. As Orwell knew well, these shifts select for mindless ideological zombies while silencing critical thinkers."
"These changes are a test of reason. If you can reason, you fail. If you can Doublethink, you pass.Greenfield agrees with the bipolar characteristics of the cultural war:
The constant shifts create their own version of future shock. They leave people baffled and uncertain. Society no longer seems to resemble what they knew, even though the real society of men and women has not really changed much, only the media's presentation of it has. But a beaten down mass of ordinary people now imagines that the country is filled with gay men and trannies. They accept that what they thought was common sense no longer applies and that it's someone else's country now.
And that is the prize that the left dearly wants. Surrender."
"You can't accommodate the left on social issues. You can't accommodate it on fiscal issues. You can't do it. Period.The indication that several states will refuse to obey the SCOTUS legislation demanding marriage for homosexuals is encouraging. But it will not be enough. A majority of states and their citizens must defy, blatantly defy, the diktats of the despots, PLUS be willing to take that defiance to the ultimate conclusion. That conclusion must entail the complete dismantling of Leftist power structures that have already been built. No compromise; complete unconditional surrender.
The left exists to destroy you. It does not seek to co-exist with you. Its existence would lose all meaning. Any common ground will be used to temporarily achieve a goal before the useful idiots are kicked to the curb and denounced as bigots who are holding back progress.
The purpose of power is power. The left is not seeking to achieve a set of policy goals before kicking back and having a beer. The policy goals are means of destroying societies, nations and peoples before taking over. If you allow it a policy goal, it will ram that goal down your throat. It will implement it as abusively as it can possibly can before it moves on to the next battle.
It's not about gay marriage. It's not about cakes. It's about power.
More fundamentally it's about the difference in human nature between the people who want to be left alone and those who want power over others.
You can't work out a truce with tyrants. You can give in or stand up to them. There's nothing else. "
