Video: We are fighting the Left, not Liberals – Dennis Prager.

Liberals have been brainwashed into thinking the right is the enemy when the real enemy of Liberalism is the Left.
 

Turning Point USA, Published on Jan 24, 2018

Dennis Prager of PragerU and
other endeavours gave a superb speech at Turning Point USA’s Annual
Student Action Summit. The whole 57 minute video is well worth watching
because he discusses some very important topics, but here are some of
the most important points he raised in the first few minutes of the
speech:

  • We are fighting the Left, not Liberals.
This [point] will help you immensely in making converts or at least making people aware of what you’re fighting.
Liberals have been brainwashed into thinking the right is the enemy when the real enemy of Liberalism is the Left.
  • Every American coin has what American stands for Liberty and in God we Trust, E pluribus unum.  All three repulse the Left.
  • We are in a non-violent civil war.
  • The Left wishes to undo the American Revolution.
The left has never been interested in Liberty except for abortion, they have no desire for individual freedom.
There were two revolutions at the end of the 18th Century, The American and the French.

They had very little in common. And the biggest difference between them was, one affirmed equality and one did not.

  • The American revolution was for Liberty. The French revolution was for equality.
You cannot have Liberty and equality as equal values. The moment there is Liberty, there is inequality.

We believe in two equalities, one that we are all God’s Children, we all
created in God’s image and therefore we are all equal. And that we are
all equal before the Law.

The points he raised were also articulated in a column of his several years ago entitled: It’s a Civil War: What We Do Now

In this unprecedented crisis of values, this is what needs to be done:

1. Know and teach America’s core values.

In a nutshell, they are what I call the
American Trinity: “In God we trust,” “Liberty” and “E Pluribus Unum.”
The left has successfully made war on all three — substituting
secularism for God and religion in as much of American life as possible;
substituting equality (of result) for liberty; and multiculturalism is
the opposite of “E Pluribus Unum.”

2. Recognise that we are fighting the left, not liberals.

Conservatives and centrists are no longer fighting liberals. We are fighting the left.
Liberalism believed in American exceptionalism; the left not only does not believe in it, the left opposes it.
Liberalism believed in creating wealth; the left is interested in redistributing it.
Liberalism believed in a strong defense. The left believes in cutting defense and a strong United Nations.

7. Acknowledge that we are in a non-violent civil war.

I write the words “civil war” with an ache in my heart. But we are in one.
Thank God this civil war is non-violent. But
the fact is that the left and the rest of the country share almost no
values. The American value system and the leftist value system are
irreconcilable.
If the left wins, America’s values lose. If American values prevail, the left loses.

PragerU Video: Why I Left the Left

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report used to be a big progressive. He even
had a show with The Young Turks! But now he’s not a progressive. He has
left the left. Why? Dave Rubin shares his story.

Published on Feb 6, 2017

Do you believe in free speech?

Do you believe that people should be judged by their character, not their skin color?

Do you believe in freedom of religion?

If you believe these things, you’re probably not a progressive. You
might think you’re a progressive. I used to think I was. My show, “The
Rubin Report,” was originally part of the progressive “Young Turks”
network.

Progressives struck me as liberals, but louder. Progressives were the
nice guys; they looked out for the little guy; they cared about women
and minorities; they embraced change.

In short, who wouldn’t want to be a progressive?

Progressives used to say, “I may disagree with what you say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it.” Not anymore.

Banning speakers whose opinions you don’t agree with from college
campuses – that’s not progressive. Prohibiting any words not approved of
as “politically correct” – that’s not progressive. Putting “Trigger
Warnings” on books, movies, music, anything that might offend people –
that’s not progressive either.

All of this has led me to be believe that much of the left is no longer progressive, but regressive. This is one of the reasons I’ve spent so much time on my show talking about The Regressive Left.

This regressive ideology doesn’t judge people as individuals, but as a collective.

The battle of ideas has been replaced by a battle of feelings, and
outrage has replaced honesty. Diversity reigns supreme – as long as it’s
not that pesky diversity of thought. This isn’t the recipe for a free society, it’s a recipe for authoritarianism.

Video: You’re Not A Liberal!

A Truth Revolt Original from Bill Whittle that succinctly explains why Leftists aren’t Liberal.

 Published on Oct 10, 2014

The 4:20 minute mark in the 6 minute video has its most important point:

The founding fathers were the True Liberals because they believed in Liberty – with both words having the same origins.

They believed in individual Liberty, private property,
limited government and the common sense civil rights of free-speech and
armed self-defence.
They believed in the freedom to be left alone.

The point of the video is that the collectivists of the nation’s Socialist-Left do not meet the definition of the word Liberal. They
believe in collective rights, Collective ownership of property,
unlimited government, limitations on speech and gun confiscation.

Those of that mindset (Leftists) are not Liberal by any stretch of the imagination.

A Memo to the Liberty Grabbers of the Left from the Pro-Liberty Right.


Hat Tip: Nazis Are Socialists (Meso)

A dose of reality for you Leftists opposing freedom on behalf of the gun owners of America.

Seeing that we gun owners been your rhetorical punching bag for
several weeks, there are a few things we would like to point out to you
folks opposed to the most essential of Liberties. You’ve spent all
manner of airtime talking down to us, dictating what we ‘need’
with regard to our basic human rights. So now it is time for you to
listen to a couple of brutal truths in the matter. These aren’t going to
be ‘politically correct’, by any means, but such is usually not the case with cold hard reality.

From your ever so self laudatory language, you Liberty grabbers on
the Left like to think of yourselves as noble warriors, out there ‘changing the world’ for the ‘Common good’ [Gemeinnutz in the German vernacular]. Fighting for Socialister. Social ‘Justice’ and all manner of flowery folderol [Cue mournful violin music]. Yes, you think of yourselves as ‘sacrificing’ for the ‘the children*’
no matter what that entails. Whether it’s all manner of fame on Youtube
or Facebook, to endless praise from your echo chamber, there are no
limits as to your willingness to signal your virtue to everyone.

*Unborn children excluded

Well, sorry to break it to you, but in the words of the Marchers: “We call BS!”

The fact is there is nothing more selfish than demanding that others be deprived of their ‘essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety’
for yourselves. You want others to sacrifice their freedom for some
mythical gains in your perceived security. It would be one thing for you
to give up your Liberty, but that isn’t the case is it? You are
marching to demand that the basic human rights of others be stripped
from them, that is self-centred in the extreme.

“Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves” ― Abraham Lincoln

Empathy is a very important human quality, so perhaps you should
consider giving up some of your essential liberties to understand what
is at stake for those of us on the Pro-Liberty side of the aisle. Maybe
you should demand that you be stripped of your First amendment rights?
Or perhaps Liberty Grabbers groups should be licensed before they can
demand that others be deprived of their rights?

Oh, what’s that you say? You have a Constitutional right to free-speech or freedom of the press? That those rights ‘Shall not be infringed’? [to coin a phrase] Or that the slightest amount will lead to a slippery slope towards the loss of them all. Welcome to our world,
where every time a Leftist lunatic decides to go on a mass murder
spree, our Constitutional rights are suddenly on the chopping block.
With it just being a question of how much of those rights we’re going to lose – if not everything.

Can we dictate what you ‘need’ in exercising your Rights?

Can we demand that you justify the keeping of your liberties? Can we arbitrarily decree that certain modes of speech are ‘Militaristic’ in style? Do you really ‘need’ to appear on the Tele 30 times a day? Do you really need a ‘high capacity’ smart phone? Do you really need to fire off 5 tweets in a minute just to kill off a basic human right?

Hypocrisy on parade: Liberty Grabbers have guns to protect themselves while denying that right to others.

Please note that the people in the Liberty Grabber movement you
idolize are also complete hypocrites in that while they work tirelessly
to take away our property and our Liberty, they are safe and secure
surrounded by ARMED security. Yes, think about it, the people who rail
against guns have no problem being protected by them. Were they to be
true to their words, they would disarm their security details. If
Citibank and Bank of America didn’t care to be hypocrites they would
dismiss their armed security and announce it to the world.
Oh, they have to deal with threats? So do the rest of us – and yet they want to make everyone else vulnerable to those threats while they stay safe and secure.

Here’s a hard dose of reality for you: We gun owners protect everyone, even you Liberty Grabbers.

The truth is that while you uselessly virtue signal your inestimable
magnanimity, it is those of us on the Pro-liberty side who work to keep
you people safe. This may come as a shock, but if you live in one of the
states or localities that value Liberty, you are around concealed
weapons every time you go out in public. Yes, you might find this to be
too scary to think about, but every day you are protected by the
deterrence effect of ordinary folks just like you [aside from their cherishing freedom that is] carrying around *Gasp* Firearms hidden from view.

Consequently, you don’t know who might be carrying a gun…. and neither do the criminals.
Thus the value of an armed citizenry. They don’t know who may have the
means to defend themselves, so they don’t know who to victimize,
therefore everyone is protected.

The exception being The “Gun-Free” zone, that vestige of the
Utopian fantasy world of the Left. Most mass shootings take place where
the innocent are denied their basic human Liberty of self-defence. So
what does that mean for you Leftists of the so-called “Party of Science”? It means that your absurd idea that a sign will stop a mass murder results in dead children. That is what you want everywhere, how does that even reach the threshold of rationality?

If you aren’t going to thank us for keeping you safe, could you at least leave us alone?

So why is all of this important? Because the people you have demonisd
for weeks are the ones keeping you safe. Those you label as terrorist,
splattered in blood are the people providing for your security. How is that for irony?

  • We’re the ones who take the time endure the draconian hurdles put in the way of our basic human rights.
  • We’re the ones who take the time to select the proper firearm and holster to carry concealed out in public.
  • We’re the ones who practice with our weapons in case an emergency arises.
  • We’re the ones who carry a cellphone and extra magazines for that potential emergency.
  • And We’re the ones who will most likely have to deal myriad legal
    problem and legal fees for merely protecting ourselves, our families and even you people should it be necessary.

Now, we don’t expect you people to grateful for this protection you
are afforded. Goodness knows you wouldn’t lower yourself to talk to
those of us on the Pro-liberty side. But could you at least acknowledge the effort and perhaps stop obsessing over taking away our Liberty that keeps you safe?

We need to call it Liberty Control instead of Gun Control.

The current debate is over Liberty and Freedom, the national
Socialist Left wants it to be about scary objects they don’t understand.

“She who defines the terms, wins the debate”

For all of their inherent faults, one must have a begrudging respect
for our comrades on the national Socialist-Left in how they exploit
language to very good effect. They enforce an iron discipline when it
comes to the words they use to frame the discussion to their cynical
advantage. An article in The Atlantic exemplified this with: Don’t Call It ‘Gun Control’.  Or more recently in New York magazine: ‘Gun Control’ Has Outlived Its Usefulness

While we will never adopt it’s immoral base ideology of collectivism, it is time we maintained the same discipline in the words we use. This occurs in various instances, with the incorrect use of the term Liberal being the most prominent, but that is for another column.

The debate is rightfully over the cause of Liberty, so why not act like it?

At present the important point is that we use the term ‘Liberty’ in place of the word ‘gun’ in the discussion over the common sense human right of self-defence. It is the underlying issue of the debate over the 2nd amendment. A Pew research poll from last June showed that For most gun owners, owning a firearm is tied to their personal freedom.  The best way to convince non-gun owners of this critical issue [ aside from taking them to the range having fun shooting an EBR ] would be to instantly frame the debate as being over Liberty instead of guns.

It is absurd to ascribe rights or controls to inanimate objects, but
that is the implication when using those terms instead of the underlying
issue. Consider some other essential topics of freedom such as the
right to vote or the right to privacy, would we really talk about a ‘War on ballots’ or ‘assault search warrants’ instead?

Framing the debate over Liberty instead of scary objects the Left doesn’t understand.

The national Socialist-Left would love to keep this debate framed as one over scary looking pieces of aluminium instead of freedom. Even though polling has shown there are about 120 Million gun owners
in the country, many have no direct experience with firearms. Still
further many gun owners don’t have personal experience with every aspect
of the issue. Sad to say, but many people don’t care about subjects
that do not impact their lives directly. Never the less, they do care
about the subject of Liberty, they can see as something immediately
important to them.

Just compare the emotional influence of a polling question with just one word difference Liberty in place of Gun:

Do you favour more gun control?

Do you favour more Liberty control?

That changes the thinking from that of objects to one that personally impacts their lives. This Liberty instead of Gun phraseology also goes directly to the heart of the Left’s deceptive use of the term ‘Liberal’.
Even if they don’t know it implicitly, both words have the same
underlying meaning – they both come from the same root word after all.

The Takeaway.

It should be obvious why the national Socialist Left does things in a
certain way with an iron grip on words being at the forefront.
Revealing the underlying issues will cause them to lose the argument. So
now, en mass they are playing games with language the use to avoid the
word ‘Control’ but still framing the debate as one over inanimate objects. They’ve begun to use the alternative phrase ‘gun reform’ but this is still an issue over everyone’s freedom. Thus a phrase such as ‘Liberty reform’ will nail them to the wall as to their true intent.

Remember: We’ve always been at war with Global Cooling.

The cyclic nature of climate means the hysteria can only be exploited for a limited time, and it’s running short.

When it comes to creating deceptive labels the national socialist
Left is par excellence, despite failing at everything else. Their self
labeling as ‘Liberals’ while having a collectivist ideology has to be one of the best examples. However, nothing shows their true genius for mendacity than their use of the of the term ‘Climate Change’ instead of the phrases ‘Global Warming’ or ‘Global Cooling’.

This is one of those vague terms with a ‘Heads we win, Tails we win’
sort of quality that works in any environment. It’s a plain fact of
reality that the climate always changes, so they can claim prescience no
matter happens. It’s use also gives them one of the greatest strawman
arguments of all time, the ever deceitful pejorative ‘Climate Change denier’.
No one actually denies that the climate changes, but this doesn’t stop
them from tarring their opponents with this scurrilous accusation at
every turn.

Global Cooling then Global Warming then Climate Change and then back to Global Cooling.

The past few decades happened to be in the upward part of a
never-ending cycle of change that has taken place as long as the planet
has existed. This let the climate cult cast the increasing temperatures
as ‘Global Warming’. When this decelerated the infamous phrase
‘Climate change’ became popular with talk about what to make of the
‘pause’ in global warming. Soon enough people began to notice that globe
wasn’t really getting warmer, and islands that were supposed to sink
beneath rising sea levels defied conventional wisdom and began growing in size.

Only a bit of fancy footwork with the language helped ‘hide the decline’ in the fortunes of global warming.. pardon..
Climate change. Normal weather events were recast as being extreme,
while lack of major hurricanes over long time periods ignored until they
returned once again. Instead of mere winter storms that have occurred
for millennia, they were labeled with hurricane style names and said to
be bombs or explosive. People are going to begin questioning why are we
making sacrifices to the carbon gods when the planet really isn’t
burning up?

Scientists are predicting ‘mini ice age’.

Still further, the bad news for the climate cult is that soon enough
the cycle turn to a downward trend showing it to be just hysteria over
something that is naturally recurring.

From Sky News: Scientists predict ‘mini ice age’ could hit UK by 2030

A mathematical model of the Sun’s magnetic activity
suggests temperatures could start dropping here from 2021, with the
potential for winter skating on the River Thames by 2030. A team led by
maths professor Valentina Zharkova at Northumbria University built on
work from Moscow to predict the movements of two magnetic waves produced
by the Sun. It predicts rapidly decreasing magnetic waves for three
solar cycles beginning in 2021 and lasting 33 years. Very low magnetic
activity on the Sun correspond with historically documented cold periods
on Earth.

This reality will not sit well with the climate cult, they’ve made a
living over carbon indulgences the past few decades while using their
hysteria to try to control every aspect of our lives. It has met some
‘resistance’, apparently we’re supposed to believe that the main driver
of climate – The SUN – has a less of an influence effect than an ancillary effect of the sun, and not from the main green house gas to boot.

From the Washington Post: No, Earth is not heading toward a ‘mini ice age’

It’s a dramatic idea, but it isn’t being embraced by many
climate scientists, who argue that anthropogenic global warming —
brought on by a human outpouring of greenhouse gas emissions into the
atmosphere — will far outweigh any climate effects that might be caused
by the sun. As far as the solar variations go, “The effect is a drop in
the bucket, a barely detectable blip, on the overall warming trajectory
we can expect over the next several decades from greenhouse warming,”
said Michael Mann, distinguished professor of meteorology at
Pennsylvania State University, in an e-mail to The Washington Post.

Worse yet, there are actual reports from the periodical Scientific
American that state in essence, “pollution is helping to cool the
climate, masking some of the global warming that’s occurred so far.” Cleaning Up Air Pollution May Strengthen Global Warming.

For now, the Climate Cult is showing their best perversion of the scientific method attacking any who dare to utter words that challenge their orthodoxy.
They may only have once choice, going back to flogging the cause of
Global Cooling or wait until the cycle begins again, hoping no one will
remember this hysteria, time will only tell.
