The Insane Rationalizations, Bigotry And Out Right Hypocrisy Of The Left


Mr King

Recommended Posts

Jordan Peterson has stated that he considers himself a classical liberal, which is of course quite distinct from the modern use of the word liberal, as commonly used in the United States today. In the rest of the world, liberal basically still means more or less what it used to. European liberal parties are generally slightly right-of center (in a European context), with some exceptions (UK Lib dems, I am looking at you).

 

But it is certainly correct, that he does not think of himself as right wing in a US context. He has an affinity for some US conservative positions (and I suspect he has grown increasingly comfortable with US conservatives), though not all.

And their arguments tend to be fairly well researched and reasoned.  This gy is juat saying that these courses will be useless because he says they will be without shpowing us the content or giving some other evidence.

Just remembered the late Walter Williams and the present Thomas Sowell. To the best of my knowledge I have not heard of either being read in U.S. "institutes of higher indoctrination, er, education."

 The big crimes he commits as far as the modern left is concerned is he rejects the victimhood mentality and points out the falicies of the gender issues.

Funny enough every time I've seen his political views brought up Peterson claims he is not conservative/right-wing as defined in America.  In the past he's always stated he was a liberal.  For example his wiki states he "supports universal healthcare, redistribution of wealth towards the poor and the decriminalization of drugs."  Not really the most hardcore far left views (the redistribution of wealth is poorly defined in the linked article and can simply mean he's for taxes and said taxes being used to help the poor) from what I've gathered of Canadian politics.

What is Thomas Jefferson? He was a liberal with liberal views. Adhering to his concepts gets you branded a right wing extremist by the left. The same with Peterson.

Are the leftists who espouse a western tinged Maoism liberal in any sense of the term? Are they progressive in trying to implement a Chinese communist revolutionary movement from the 60s? One that China itself under Mao explicitly destroyed not 5 years after creating it?

This is an excerpt of the Florida education guidelines that has the wokesters up in arms  and was written by black scholars:

"SS.68.AA.2.3
Examine the various duties and trades performed by slaves (e.g., agricultural work, painting, carpentry, tailoring, domestic service, blacksmithing, transportation).
Benchmark Clarifications:
Clarification 1: Instruction includes how slaves developed skills which, in some instances, could be applied for their personal benefit."

When was blacksmithing a slave task? That’s highly skilled and technical.

Yet another fake Hate Crime from the left.  Ms. Smollet here, has done utter harm to real victims because next time perhaps no one will care.

No one should care.  People need to handle their own problems, not virtue signal about some make-believe bullshit.  Then they wonder why they're being lead around by the nose.  Stop being cattle, any time something is playing on your emotions, you're being sold something.  S/F....Ken M

Could be. In Soviet Union you had "disgraced" engineers in Gulag working/slaving for the regime.

Well in the USSR you could be a nuclear physicist and still be one of the slaves. 
 

I don’t think the intelligentsia left in Florida are wringing their hands because they aren’t able to ‘properly teach the 1619 story of the USSR’.

I am surprised that the lefty professors who are whinging about Florida have not moved to a socialist paradise like New York, Chicago, LA, San Fran, or Portland.  

The long marchers must stay in place

I'm betting some of the other "Benchmark Clarifications" were more in keeping with what most saves did.

The Department of Homeland security is officially out of their fucking mind.

Check out the “reasons” they’re labeling Americans as right wing extremists now:

• Combat veterans who are quote unquote “disgruntled about the takeover of their country.”

• Anyone that opposes war

• Anyone that opposes the Feds restricting their 2nd amendment rights,

• Anyone with a better explanation to all these mass shootings and domestic terrorist attacks...

• Anyone who opposes open borders

• Anyone against abortion

• Anyone that brings up the US Constitution

• Supports a 3rd party candidate

• Anyone that wants to audit the Federal Reserve…

• And finally…anyone that opposes the United Nations or the WHO
