… If You Want Me To Be

Posted in Liberalexicon, Politics, Society on December 13th, 2018
If You Want Me To Be

Dear Leftists, Liberals, Progressives, Feminists, Queer and Trans Activists, and Blacktivists – Really! Just about all you who are likely Democrat voters,

  • I’ll be Deplorable… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Ignorant… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Selfish… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Racist… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Sexist and Misogynist… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Homophobic… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Transphobic… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Islamophobic… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be Xenophobic… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll be a Fascist… If you want me to be.
  • I’ll even be a Nazi… If you want me to be and you buy me the uniform and paraphernalia. 😉

And, of course, I’m not being accommodating. Nor is this really just a paroxysm of sarcasm on my part, though it is heavily laced with sarcasm. I just accept that I’m going to “be” whatever your sort(s) decide that I am since you’ve developed, promulgated, and/or adopted such definitions of these terms that make it so that I am all of these things by your criteria.

Sincerely,
A White American Man

And therein is the sad truth. Americans’ domestic enemies operate within a framework of narrative and lived experience, not facts, and they created their “Liberalexicon” accordingly. Hence, I and the rest of us are in their minds exactly whatever bad thing that believe us to be. They’re the scions of Humpty Dumpty and When they use a word, it means just what they choose it to mean—neither more nor less.

And, My Fellow Americans, remember that the majority of our people’s domestic enemies believe in these ever-broadening and ever-shifting definitions and, hence, truly believe that we are, each and every one of us, whatever “bad thing” that their specific hatred is pointed at any given moment. So they cannot be reasoned with since who could expect anyone to reason with or accept any argument from such deplorable people as they “know” us to be.

Anarchy For The Employed

Libertarianism: Anarchy For The Employed
Libertarianism: Anarchy For The Employed

Honestly, if you’ve listened to / read their respective rantings, you’ve probably already noticed that the Libertarians and the Anarchists are separate only in that most of the Libertarians have decent jobs and real property, whereas the Anarchists don’t. They’re a lot like – and there’s a LOT of overlap between them – the #NeverTrump-ers and the #Resist-ers, fellow travelers who seem to hate each other despite sharing goals and enemies in common.

Ah well, politics does make for strange bedfellows and sometimes results in coyote ugly mornings. 😉

The Indoctrination Gap

The Indoctrination Gap
The Indoctrination Gap

Periodically – normally either while they’re losing an election or immediately after having lost one – our domestic enemies will bemoan the “education gap” between them and Americans, who vote for Republicans. The rest of the time they tend to be patronizing and sarcastic about it and those “ignorant bumpkins” in rural America.

Yet, what is truer is that there is a widening Indoctrination Gap between the Leftists and the American people. A couple of generations of ever-increasing left-wing indoctrination being added to- or disguised as “higher education” has both guaranteed that college graduates would at least lean Left and that Americans would more and more reject the institutions that did this and which continue to escalate their doing of it.

And, to cement things and increase both the divide and the Leftists’ indoctrination of the college educated, the graduates’ incurred debt, declining ROI on their education, and the need or implanted desire to move to higher cost of living urban centers, all conspire to both separate the two groups further and to make Americans think poorly of college as path to take in life.

But hey! What do I know? I’m just a deplorable, knuckle-dragging ignoramus…
