Considering the extent to which the political left kvetched well into Barack Obama’s presidency on the topic of George W. Bush having ruined America, some commentators find ourselves a bit reticent to do likewise regarding Obama and the state in which our nation now finds itself despite the fact that Obama richly deserves such criticism, and then some.
That said, it does occur to me that the monumental exertions being put forth on the part of the establishment press and liberal politicos toward derailing Donald Trump’s presidency would have been more appropriately applied to the high crimes committed by the Obama administration. Indeed, they would not have needed to engage in all of the futile excavation in which they now engage in order to find some nefarious tidbit with which to oust Trump, since Obama’s offenses were legion.
Additionally, the level of the left’s projection – accusing political opponents of transgressions of which they are themselves guilty – has reached an all-time high in recent months. In a way, the calumnies against Trump and dogged persistence in trying to bring him down are aspects of the aforementioned projection, but the left’s proclivity toward all of the distasteful practices of which they accuse Trump and the political right are far more telling in this regard.
Every now and then, a prominent liberal articulates something so damning and precisely illustrative of their twisted vision that one wonders how they let it pass their lips. Well, liberals aren’t known for being terribly reflective or judicious with regard to their rhetoric, and the last few months of advocating violence against political opponents is indicative of this.
Last Friday, HBO’s Bill Maher stated on his cable TV show that refraining from having children was the best thing a person could do for the environment. “Because you know what Mother Nature loves even more than electric cars?” Maher asked. “Condoms. There’s literally nothing you can do that’s better for the environment than to not produce another resource-sucking, waste-making human being, probably with a bad attitude.”
Well, I for one am delighted that Maher himself decided to put his money where his mouth is (or put his reproductive concerns where his mouth is) and elected not to reproduce, but the point is that his statements reveal the deep misanthropy that most liberals appear to possess.
Despite their mantra of love, tolerance, and egalitarianism, liberals hate people. Indeed, many of the deceptions liberal politicians, pundits, and activists foist upon their followers are employed based upon the premise that the latter are so abysmally stupid that they’ll never detect these deceptions. This sweeping judgment obviously evidences a low opinion of people that is antithetical to their supposed creed of love, tolerance, and egalitarianism.
While eternally pessimistic leftists such as Maher would inevitably find people, places, and things with which they could find offense no matter how “Utopian” they managed to make society, they still envision themselves finding peace and contentment in a world wherein their political opponents were either completely disenfranchised or had somehow magically departed from this plane of existence. Given their maturity and intellectual bent, one may presume that these enemies would either ride off on unicorns, slide into oblivion on the handiest rainbow, or wind up abducted in the night by wee dark faeries.
Christians might find that this philosophy rings rather Luciferian in context. Judeo-Christian convention states that the Devil was jealous of humanity’s position in the eyes of God, and so eternally seeks to corrupt and destroy human beings. This is quite in keeping with liberals’ misanthropy, as well as their desire to advance absolutely anything that is antithetical to Judeo-Christian doctrine.
Liberals demonstrate their disdain for humanity primarily through the environmental movement, wherein the very presence of human beings on the planet is viewed as a vile plague. This is readily exemplified in the rhetoric environmentalists typically employ. Bill Maher’s reference to people as “resource-sucking” and “waste-making” denotes this quite effectively.
This is also consistent with how the political left perennially advances morbidity, or aspects of death. Unfettered abortion, assisted suicide, and substandard health care are among these. Enabling the mayhem in which Islamists, illegal immigrants, and even common criminals engage is another. Finally, a few weeks ago at a baseball practice in Virginia, we witnessed that to which leftists have always defaulted at some point during their political ascendency: Outright murder (or attempted murder, in this case). The political left’s position regarding the death penalty (they’re against it) has much more to do with their disdain for the law than any concern for the sanctity of life.
As I’ve said before and will no doubt say again: Leftists murdered, maimed, and enslaved half a billion people during the last century. This demonstrates not only their innate disregard for human life, but the phenomenon of projection in their ceaseless accusations that those on the political right in America are inherently violent. The empirical evidence however, speaks for itself.
