Corrupted Means Always Corrupt the Ends

Corrupted Means Always Corrupt the Ends

By David Risselada

Democrats have really trapped themselves in a corner, haven’t they? It was all too obvious that the constant anti-American rhetoric they have been pushing would result in the kind of political violence we witnessed today. For years, ever since being a student in a radical left wing social work program, this author has been warning anyone who would listen that this was the direction we were going. The only problem is that no one was listening.

Think about it a moment; for decades now the radical left has controlled our institutions of lower learning while teaching students that they were oppressed victims of an evil, selfish, racist, sexist, homophobic capitalistic society. One that no less, caters to the privileged white man more than any other. They have ridiculed Christianity while removing it altogether from the public school system. They have replaced a traditional understanding of what is right and wrong with moral relativism which allows them to justify any action based on the view points of particular cultures or worldviews.

Isn’t it ironic? A political party who all but removed God from their political platform while pushing hateful lies to destroy their opposition wants us to believe they prayed for the Republicans? It seems that the idea of ends justifying the means is coming back to bite them right in the square of their proverbial donkey.

Alinsky always taught that believing corrupted means would corrupt the ends was a misguided principle, and that corrupting one’s self was the greatest act of morality if one was truly interested in pursuing the greater good. Well here we are, the Democrats have certainly corrupted themselves to levels unseen before and all we have to show for it are disgruntled Americans who believe Republicans want everyone to die because we are all selfish, racist, women hating Islamophobes who don’t want anyone having health care. The sad thing is liberals really believed they would have the opportunity to create a perfect world as a result of these hateful lies. Such is the way I suppose.

As usual, Democrats have come out with cries for gun control. What they fail to understand is that it was their constant politicization of tragedies such as this that cost them the election in the first place. Please, by all means keep calling for gun control and we will see whatever remaining Democrat seats there are left lost to pro-gun Republicans in 2018.

The issue of gun control, in this humble authors opinion, shows the true nature of the Democrat party. They claim to be for human rights and dignity but fail to understand that a human being has nothing if not the absolute right to self preservation in the face of danger. How can an individual maintain dignity when forced into a helpless situation where the right to defend his or her own life has been taken away by others seeking political gain? Call your congressman and senators and ask them this question. Furthermore, to suffer helplessly at the hands of criminals who never have any intention of complying with society’s laws is just a slap in the face by those who look down on us from their positions of power. Positions of power which were created to preserve the people’s liberty.

The truth is that Democrats don’t care about individual liberty or human dignity. They are collectivists and as such they see us as nothing but useful tools that can be played at will to accomplish a political objective. Sadly, their political objectives would see the masses psychologically subdued and chained to an ideology that has done nothing but wreak havoc and human misery since its inception. The fact that younger Americans are viewing socialism/communism as legitimate alternatives to our capitalist society is indicative of the fact that we are on the verge of witnessing more political violence. Blacks on college campuses are demanding segregation, college professors are calling for Republicans to be lined up and shot and there is even one student group who demanded Republicans be beheaded because they believe we want to take everyone’s health care.

Things will likely get far worse before they get any better. Democrats will continue to blame Republican gun ownership for violence committed by Democrats while still pursuing an agenda we all know is based on lies. They will continue to tell their followers that they are oppressed victims while encouraging them to revolt in the name of pursuing a better world. The question remains however, whether or not an agenda based on lies can lead to a better world at all. So far the evidence says otherwise.

How the Left’s Lies Fool Everyday Americans

How the Left’s Lies Fool Everyday Americans

By Erik Rush

An aspect of the political left’s modus operandi that has been articulated by conservatives for quite some time is that of their inability to be forthright regarding their true agenda. The reason for this is the fact that such candidness would result in all but their most ideological supporters heading for the proverbial hills; in such a scenario, Democrats would have a very difficult time getting elected anywhere, at least at the national level.

By way of an object lesson, one can handily point to the spate of preposterous allegations leveled against President Donald Trump by liberals on an almost hourly basis since his election last November. From the utterly baseless claim that the Trump camp colluded with the Russian government to fix the election, to the alleged significance of a tweet by the President which contained a typographical error, it is clear that the left is prepared to glom onto absolutely anything that has the potential to diminish Trump in Americans’ eyes.

In this instance, what some find chilling is that the fact that the above tactic has proven effective in the past. Here, the idea is to malign Trump to the degree that his reputation becomes so sullied that Americans determine it would be best to oust him just for appearance’s sake – sort of like the community who turns against an individual who was cleared of a crime simply because the allegations were so ugly.

In addition to the falsehoods being employed in the political left’s short-term mission to oust Trump, there are the myriad lies and fallacious conventions the left has proffered over the years, many of which have helped them gain political ground. Drawing obscure connection between issues of concern and other, unrelated issues, ascribing untoward events and conditions they created to the actions of their political opponents, and citing junk science are examples of “tried and true” weapons in the left’s arsenal of lies.

One very significant example is the purported moral equivalence between Western culture and retrograde cultures (e.g., the West versus Islamic societies). This one has been advanced for decades now, and set the stage for many Westerners actually believing that there is a moral equivalence between the West and societies which place little or no value upon human life. As one can readily observe at this juncture, inculcation of this lie over time was necessary in order to engender misplaced sympathy for the sundry criminal illegal immigrants and America-hating “refugees” with whom they wished to saddle the nation’s economy and populace. This is part and parcel of a “new morality” that even conditions the children of Western nations to sympathize with the murderous motivations of primitives who seek to do them harm.

Like the Nazis, Soviets, and other oppressive regimes, the political left (liberals, progressives, socialists) knew they had to rely on abject falsehoods and other dirty tricks their political opponents were too principled to employ in order to advance their malignant designs. Engaging in such practices as pressuring companies that advertise on media venues in order to dispatch conservative pundits, as was done in the case of Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, is certainly one of these. As many are aware, the same tactic is currently being attempted as regards Sean Hannity, who remains with that network. To reinforce the lie, The Atlantic’s Conor Friedersdorf published “How Conservatives Awoke to the Dangers of Sean Hannity” on May 30, a disgusting and impudent offering calculated to give the appearance that America’s conservatives had somehow awoken en masse to what a scoundrel Hannity is, thus giving rise to the pressure being put on Fox to dump him.

This imperative for advancing lies is also behind the efforts of social media venues like Facebook, which maintains a virulently leftist culture, in engaging bots (automated Internet protocols) and online operatives to craft the illusion of an inordinate leftist presence on social media, and even paying operatives to help carry this out.

Displacing actual perils to our nation by offering substitute “threats” that fit their message is another strategem being used by the left in the same way they utilize distracting imperatives concerning climate change and the homosexual agenda to gin up support. Those on the left know that without employing such tactics, as well as propagandizing the population through entertainment media (e.g., the proliferation of homosexual characters in TV and film and inserting other favored political viewpoints therein), they will have no support but their tiny, insane base.

So, how do those on the left reconcile using such patently immoral tactics “in good conscience?” It is because they possess a deep-seated belief that their political opponents (conservatives, libertarians, constitutionalists) are so fundamentally evil that any and all measures must be employed in order to neutralize them.

In other words, the ends justify the means.

To the non-ideological, non-news junkie voter, it is not always easy to discern that the left is wholly devoid of decency and character since they control what is reported in the press. Thus, it isn’t always evident how often the left uses the basest in crude, immature titillation and confrontation to promote their agenda, and aren’t even reflective enough to note that conservatives, libertarians, and Trump voters (who comprised many more than just conservatives and libertarians) aren’t the ones talking about killing the President and wearing vagina hats, and how this might impact their credibility.

In the quest to enlighten the non-ideological among our electorate, apart from conservatives’ efforts to bring to light the left’s abysmal character and amorality, one can only hope that their recent actions, incendiary rhetoric, hyperbole and histrionics speak for themselves.
