Leftists Speak

216005“There are 72 genders.”

Editor’s Note:  There are 2 sexes—male and female.  Sex is a biological term. Gender is a sociological term.  Biology is a hard science. Sociology is a soft pseudo-science.  Males dressed as females are still males.  Males racing as transgender women in women’s sports are still males.  Nations that can’t figure this out are doomed.  If males and females are the same there would never be reproduction.  Because there is reproduction proves there are basic differences between male and female.  Only a leftist would dispute the obvious.

America at the Edge

“At the same time as communism and a leftist worldview was becoming rooted in U.S. society, a serious breakdown in the family life of the country was taking place.” E. Jeffrey Ludwig

“America is now in disintegration mode despite President Trump’s desire to reinstate some respect for our institutions after decades of neglect.” Ibid

“Little children are sitting on the laps of drag queens in library ‘readings’ and some of those drag queens have records of pedophilia.” Ibid

“Homosexual marriage is now the law of the land.” Ibid

Social and Political Disintegration Is Accelerating

By E. Jeffrey Ludwig; American Thinker, October 15, 2019

The leftward propulsion of American socio-political-economic life during the New Deal and in the 1960s has, this writer would propose, converged with collapsing family values during the past sixty years.  Contempt for the family is part of the communist program going back to 1848.   The voices of hateful anti-America protest continue to promote communism as the answer to our society’s issues.  America is now in disintegration mode despite President Donald Trump’s desire to reinstate some respect for our institutions after decades of neglect.

How did we arrive at this point of social and political disintegration?

The voices of socialist potentiality began to move with greater confidence during the New Deal, but they had not wrested total control over the Democratic Party.

After the election of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, expansion of the federal government’s economic and political authority accelerated.  The Constitutional “balancing” — which was really an imbalance in favor of the States — began to erode as the cash flow to the federal government through government borrowing (deficit spending) increased.  Decisions that were outright against the liberty established at the founding of our country were justified as needed to take us out of the Great Depression.  FDR set up what came to be called the alphabet agencies. Among the laws passed were the National Industrial Recovery Act and the Agricultural Adjustment Act.  These laws vastly expanded federal control over industry and agriculture, the two biggest sectors of our economy.  Both laws would be declared unconstitutional, but the mindset that gave rise to those legislative acts continued to accelerate.

Western Civ Implodes

“Western civilization is imploding.  The jungle is not approaching our civilized cities; and the barbarians are not at the gates.  The jungles have become our cities, and the barbarians, slick, articulate and dressed in suits and ties, and heels and skirts and blouses, and well-heeled are among us destroying our civilization.  The West is not dying apocalyptically, but is, instead, bleeding to death by thousands of unnoticed tiny scratches.”  Jason D. Hill, professor of philosophy at DePaul University (Chicago)

“Our ancestors were builders and pioneers and mostly fearless.  We are regulators, auditors, bureaucrats, adjudicators, censors, critics, plaintiffs, defendants, social media junkies and thin-skinned scolds.  A distant generation created; we mostly delay, idle and gripe.”  Victor Davis Hanson

Many of the stories about the gods and heroes of Greek mythology were compiled during Greek Dark Ages. Impoverished tribes passed down oral traditions that originated after the fall of the lost palatial civilizations of the Mycenaean Greeks.

Dark Age Greeks tried to make sense of the massive ruins of their forgotten forbearers’ monumental palaces that were still standing around. As illiterates, they were curious about occasional clay tablets they plowed up in their fields with incomprehensible ancient Linear B inscriptions.

We of the 21st century are beginning to look back at our own lost epic times and wonder about these now-nameless giants who left behind monuments that we cannot replicate, but instead merely use or even mock.

Does anyone believe that contemporary Americans could build another transcontinental railroad in six years? Continue reading
