Have you ever questioned the current left-wing narrative? I mean, really asked yourself, Is this truth, or am I being fed a pack of lies?
I think it’s high time to call BS.
Think about some of the stuff we’re expected to believe as “truth” these days:
Orange Man is Bad! Everything President Trump does is evil, wrong and probably corrupt. He’s certainly a puppet of Russia – or is it the Ukraine? Maybe it’ll be Poland or Greece next week, when the impeachement fails. Who knows! Orange man bad bad bad!
We should impeach Trump! While on the subject of Trump, did you know that the Democrats have tried to impeach every Republican President for the last 30 years? As they say, what else is new? The first call to impeach Trump came 19 minutes after Trump was sworn in. Think that’s crazy? You might be right.
A person should be judged by the color of their skin (or their sex, or their sexuality), NOT the content of their character. If that sounds like racism, you’d be right. I am dead set against this sort of BS, and against female token hires too. I find that downright insulting. When you spout this stuff, basically you’re saying that women and various minorities can’t do stuff ourselves, that we’re less capable. Screw that.
Men can have periods, and women can be men. And some women have penises. The Left is full of this stuff, and a lot of we women have had enough of it. Yes, you ARE trying to erase womanhood, and turn it into a joke. No, men cannot have periods. No, they cannot give birth and no, a genetic male cannot become a women. Women don’t have penises. If you believe this junk, the Far Left really has fooled you.
You have the right to police my language. No, you don’t. If you’re a dude, I’m going to call you “he”. If you’re an a**hole, I’ll probably call you that too! You don’t get to police my language. I’m not your puppet, and I won’t do what you tell me to do. And if that offends you, that’s your problem.
Unchecked immigration is good…border walls are bad. Borders and immigration controls prevent transmission of disease (ever heard of quarantine?), transportation of illegal and dangerous goods and in some cases, transmissible plant and animals diseases, inflow of criminal elements, overburdening of housing (New Zealand’s housing market being a case in point), healthcare, education, infrastructure and retirement supports. Borders also keep wages up through keeping mass low wage competition out (i.e. bringing in immigrants who will do your job for much, much less). Borders enable nations to charge tariffs on certain goods and services, and raise revenue for various purposes from duty on imports.
Everyone should be able to go wherever they want, whenever they want. Uh, no. Do you have locks on your doors? The fact that you do suggests that you do not not support this crazy idea brought to you by the Far Left. You don’t get to enter my home without my saying so. Nor do I get to enter yours. We have property and privacy rights, although these are being torn down by the Left – our NZ Government is currently trying to pass warrantless entry in New Zealand as part of the gun law “reforms”.
It’s good for kids to miss school for “climate strikes”. No, it isn’t. It’s not just the odd “climate strike” or two either now. Check out FridaysForFuture.org, where Greta Thunburg is advocating kids take off every Friday from school, because “School children are required to attend school. But… why study for a future, which may not be there?” I suppose an ignorant, uneducated population will suit a totalitarian regime quite well.
Communism is kinda nice really… it just hasn’t been done well yet. This sickens me. Watch what’s going on in Hong Kong right now. Learn what happened in Tiananmen Square. Learn about Stalin and Mao. These were not good guys. But Trump has said it best, when discussing Venezuela and Communism: “Americans would rather walk their dogs than eat them.” Communism is the antithesis of freedom, and I believe people of all races, cultures and backgrounds deserve to be free.
Guns kill people. No, they don’t. People kill people. If guns kill people, all we have to do the next time there’s a war is ship some guns over, and not bother with any soldiers! And the old adage remains true – the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. That’s why the New Zealand police went after Tarrant (the mosque shooter) with – you guessed it – guns.
Hate speech isn’t free speech. Yes, it is. If you believe in free speech, you believe in the right of people to say things you disagree with. Or as Voltaire put it, “I disapprove of what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it.” And who defines “hate speech”? Is it just something the Left dislikes? Or is it anything that offends anyone? What about if I’m offended, because I’m sure as hell offended when people suggest that grown men should be able to enter a change room that my disabled daughter is getting undressed in.
Safety is more important than freedom. Said no prisoner ever. Benjamin Franklin nailed this one: “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” When a Government takes away freedoms, you will not be made safer. Not now, not ever.
So…let’s debate! Except maybe not, if you’re the Far Left
A key marker of people who have been assimilated by the Far Left is their refusal to debate, argue or discuss topics they disagree with.
If you think everything is settled, that some topics (climate change, gun rights, transvestites and gender ideology, Trump being evil) are not worthy of debate, you’ve been assimilated. You’ve lost your individuality. Our differences – our different viewpoints and experiences – are what make us human. If we can’t debate and argue and disagree, we’re not people. We’re automatons.
I’m saying, it’s time to stop. Step outside the echo chamber of the Left, for a minute. Ask someone you disagree with what they think, and why. Ask what evidence they have, then look for evidence that supports your own position. Do you believe things just because CNN / Stuff / the BBC tells you to? Do you think the Left is always right? Do you believe any viewpoint is always right?
We need to take a step back. De-assimilate. Question everything again. (Like the fact that Epstein didn’t kill himself.)
Because if it looks like someone is selling you something, they probably are.
