The Left Keeps Making Me Vote Conservative – I wish they would stop it.
by Jonathon Kneeland
I think my innate nature makes me much more liberal than conservative. I support strong social programs, legal and reasonable immigration, and as much personal freedom as possible. I support same sex marriage as well as laws to prohibit real discrimination against identifiable groups. I think that every person should be treated as an individual and that no person should ever be suspected or disapproved of because of their race or ethnic background. I think interracial marriage is one of the best things happening to our species, as it will do more to reduce conflict and increase real diversity (genetic, social and intellectual – the kinds that matter) than any other single action. I think science and evidence based decision making are our best hope for maintaining or improving our society. I say that these views put me firmly in what used to be the Left.
My problem now is that the Left has been corrupted and degraded beyond recognition. It's now been taken over by and panders to vile racist and anti-science crackpots who are entirely focused on creating, amplifying, and then exploiting race and class divisions. They do this while constantly parroting empty and idiotic phrases like "hate has no place in (insert country here)". So, in addition to being offensive race-baiters, they are also liars and frauds.
A decade or two ago, the Left's language, while often irritating and empty, was at least more subtle and nuanced than it is now. They have recently ratcheted up and narrowed the focus of their poisonous rhetoric so that it entirely excludes or repulses your average liberal-minded working-class citizen. If you follow politics very much at all, you'll have had to notice that much of the Left is now populated by racist and bigoted assholes who make hysterical accusations of racism and bigotry against everyone else. In addition to being unable or unwilling to put coherent thoughts together, they spend much of their time spewing venom and demanding that decent and harmless citizens make constant public declarations of guilt and shame for non-existent current crimes, or express personal guilt and shame and apologize for historical events that they had no part in.
Here is one race-baiting fraud illustrating everything that is wrong with the current Left. This was written by the racist leftist crackpot, Saira Rao. Ms. Rao is a former congressional candidate.
"Dear fellow brown girl,
It’s no secret that we live in a country based on patriarchal white supremacy. As a result, it’s not easy working in America as a brown woman. There is hate, big and small. It is here, there, everywhere, coast-to-coast, north and south. It is in every industry: law, medicine, retail, politics, education, non-profit, tech. You name it, it’s there — racism and sexism contributing to workplace trauma at every turn. Sometimes surviving the day is all we can muster.
One way to survive is telling and sharing our stories of workplace trauma. So that’s exactly what we’re going to do here. Twice a month, I’ll be interviewing brown women for my “Working While Brown” column.
If you’re interested in being interviewed, please email me at email@example.com.
Thank you, in advance, for sharing your story, your pain. We are all here to bear witness, to listen, to build community.
I see you. I hear you. I appreciate you.
– Saira Rao"
I used the above example because it so perfectly conveys the politics of the Left. It's incoherent, self-contradictory, irrational, and is bursting with self-pity and entitlement. It's comically stupid, insulting, and we are supposed to vote for what it represents.
The headline of the above insanity immediately lets us know were being drawn into a world of childish self-indulgent delusion. First we find the idiotic use of the word trauma. To crash a motorcycle and be impaled by a mailbox is to experience trauma. To be shot at or physically attacked is to experience trauma. To be severely bullied as a young person is to experience trauma. To have someone unfamiliar with your language not be able to immediately pronounce your name the first time they meet you is not to experience trauma. I have witnessed workplace trauma more than once. One of these incidents made a quadriplegic of a very young apprentice I knew. That was workplace trauma.
Ms. Rao then invites us to imagine with her that racism and sexism against "Brown People" permeates every area of American working life – even law and medicine. A thinking person might be inclined to wonder how, if America is so racist and sexist, a "Brown Woman" might end up as a lawyer or a surgeon. Does one feel oppressed while having to choose between the second beach-front vacation property and the new Porsche this year? And of course, to go along with Rao's foolishness, we are to forget the fact that, generally, "Brown People" do very well in the American economy and sit comfortably at the top of the income statistics. Yes, Ms. Roa, you're terribly oppressed, and my guilt and shame for my complicity in your unbearable oppression will be the constant primary feature in my voting decisions, just like you demand of me.
A quick scroll through Roa's Twitter feed shows us that in addition to projecting the signature features of the Left – entitlement and self-pity – she is also unashamed to promote the prominent features of the New Left. These new features include aggression and flat-out disgusting and primitive racism:
I'm not sure if Ms. Rao actually believes what she writes. I suspect that she is just another in a long line of frauds with political ambitions. If she actually does believe what she has writes then I recommend she see a psychiatrist. Whatever the case, I'm not voting for her side in our current political climate.
So that I don't get convicted – I'll be accused for sure – of finding one fraudulent and racist huckster on the internet and using that example to argue for abandoning the Left completely, I invite you to study the language of the Left throughout the West. It's all the same. It's insulting, full of lies, and demands that you express guilt and shame for crimes you haven't committed and that you have no intention of committing. They then tell you that to atone for these crimes, you are to vote for the people who use deception to coerce you into believing that the crimes exist, and that you have a roll in them. It’s a bit much like a religion, isn’t it? I’m not buying.
Many citizens are beginning to see right through the scam that is being offered by the Left. It's clear that we're tired of race-baiting schemes and identity politics. The U.S. elected Trump and Australian voters just rejected everything described above. I think that Trump is absurd, but I make this statement only to show how unpalatable the Left has become. Obviously, at least some Liberals who voted for Obama in 2012 voted for Trump in 2016. What more could be offered in the way of evidence that Trump was not elected because of racism, but because the Left has become an obscene and corrupt racket that is completely void of rationality or morality. It has become obvious that they wish for racism and all of the violence and corruption that come along with it. Even when we live in the most multicultural and harmonious civilization ever to exist, they insist on creating division and pretend to find racism everywhere. They then demand that we vote for them so that they can fight their imagined racism. This is a scam, and it is damaging to our country. These people are disgraceful.
In Canada, provincial election results have recently made it look as though we will go the way of the US and Australia and reject this scam outright by voting conservative. After this happens, the predictable hysterical sob-fests that will take place will be slightly entertaining and also informative to read. They will be entertaining because the ranting of a childish sobbing and recently defeated ideologue is always entertaining. They will be informative because, as usual, we'll see that people don't always learn from their mistakes. Australia is an excellent recent example.
In Australia, voters were tired of being called racists in their own country after they graciously allowed people from all over the world to come and make a decent life there. It was an insulting thing to tell voters, and rightly, they rejected the implications and voted the frauds out. After the election, the same people who pushed voters away, by constantly accusing them of being racists, said that the victory of the conservatives was due, of course, to the racism of the voters. This is unbelievable stupidity:
I am left of centre and liberal. If the Left ever becomes sane again, I might consider voting for them. Currently, there is no danger of this happening. This fact is most harmful to those who really need the Left. Unfortunately, the Left has abandoned them in favour of race-baiting and identity politics. If you really want to help those who need the protection of the Left, the best thing you can do is vote conservative. Only after the Left loses enough ground to finally concede that its current ideologies must be abandoned will it be forced to return to representing working people and those in need of help. The only way this will come about is for it to experience complete defeat. When you vote conservative you will be helping the Left in a genuine way – they just don't know it yet.
I love my country and I love our peaceful and tolerant society. I hate racism and the violence and oppression that come with it. For these reasons, I’ll be voting conservative in every election for the foreseeable future. I really hope the Left drags itself from the gutter that it has so carelessly slithered into.
