The Mind of the Left From an Insider

leftards

For the millions raised as leftists, it is not an ideology; it is a culture. Since childhood, they have lived and breathed it every day in the home. They know nothing else. Like any culture, it is a way of speaking, thinking and acting, with its own narratives and rituals. Narratives are held sacred, repeated, reinforced and, over time, added to. That which challenges sacred narratives, even reality itself, is met with confusion and hostility. As with any aggressive, intolerant culture, if you enter it, it enters you.

  • It’s all about feeling good, and an inherent cowardice.

    • Clausewitz

      Exactly right. That’s why so many are stomping their feet and threatening to run away as opposed to remaining and fighting for what they believe in. The left sees Canada as an easy mark for their stupidity since the election of Junior. They have zero ability or heart for a fight.

    I think you pretty much nailed it.
    My kids were always aware of my political and religious leanings.
    My daughters for sure are Lefties and the boys–I’m not sure—but I am pretty sure that they both agree with me. They both had to go through high security clearance and they know that DADDY has a big mouth. They can’t take the chance. hahahaha

      My kids know me ditto.
      My daughter presently agrees with me and my son is apathetic.

  • Chilling thought for the day:
    If Bernie and Hillary manage to get free college tuition for all, then the total divorce of “higher” education from the reality of the marketplace will be complete and the culture of the left will be able to breed its useless filth unchecked by the natural selection of economics. This must be what they mean by creating “safe spaces”. Safe for what? Safe for the tumors that are devouring our civilization, is what. It is cancer without the hope of surgery or chemotherapy.

    • The Bitch running Ontario is offering the same cult indoctrination.

      • Clausewitz

        But only for the poor at the expense of the middle classes. Wynne needs a cadre of the stupid and envious poor in order to maintain power even when everyone knows she’s screwing everybody.

    • Shebel

      More like ‘safe spaces’ from reality.
      Our new PM is just emerging from his encapsulated ‘safe space’ and fore now is intriguing the World with his MESSAGE of Peace ,Love , Dialogue and reciprocal understanding.
      Boy! The Wolves must be salivating everytime this Child opens his mouth.

      I guess ,Canada will have to be bled for a few Billion ,before this Idiot will come down to the the Planet EARTH.

      Higher education is a bubble.
      One of the best things that Bush ever did was making student debt undischargeable by bankruptcy.
      It’s also one of the worst things he did because he didn’t cap the other end of the equation.
      Somehow, students are encouraged to take on life crushing financial burdens without being given adequate advice or counselling before signing on the dotted line.

      Non-STEM university degrees are actually almost universally useless in today’s labor markets, and have been for over a decade. Creating millions more useless, cringing robo-tots will make it easier to purge them when the time comes.

  • Alain

    I must somewhat disagree. Leftism (actually communism in drag) is most certainly an ideology, however I do agree that for the majority of useful idiots who follow it, it has become their culture. They are both incapable and not interested in any type of critical thinking to discover the ideology they are actually following.

      And the rest of us don’t agitate because we are fifty year old dishwashers with never to be repaid student loans.
      We knew we wouldn’t be fifty year old dishwashers.
      Hey, I was a great dishwasher.
      But, there’s a time and a place.
      When I was sixteen I washed dishes.
      They used to make me work sixteen hours on Sundays with no overtime pay.
      I didn’t complain because then I wouldn’t get the hours.
      It was still a bargain to me even if it was an abuse of the labour law.
      Today, I worked some overtime and I got paid the equivalent of what a dishwasher would make in two weeks.

    Mommy and Daddy are your friends and you are their friend too. But none of you are best friends, so ripping off their stash under the cover of unconditional love, not outright criminality, is so not cool.

    • Clausewitz

      I am not my children’s friend. A friend will allow you to do stupid detrimental things to yourself because, “Hey man you’re my Bro”. The unconditional love of a parent will not allow me to idly stand by and watch either of my children throw their lives life away without trying to intervene. The problem today it that too many adults want to be their kid’s friends, they want to be involved with Parenting, and not actually act like a parent.

    The age of entitlement is destroying country after country through successive mindless leftist governments giving money away for little or no return from its citizens.

    The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness by Dr Rossiter, any book about cognitive disorders or cognitive distortions should shed some illumination on this subject. Fascinating stuff…
