What Progressives Want- They are All Grubers

Jonathan Gruber

,…Progressives want to rule us with knowledge not understanding. I don’t want to create the impression that I am picking only on Gruber, its just that he and his guileless truth-telling about his methods and aims give us the perfect example of how disastrous Progressiveism is as an approach to government. Mr Gruber has a complex and subtle knowledge of computer models and economic systems. About human nature and our economic behavior, however, he is as clueless and callous as a robot with Asperger’s Syndrome. Not only does he think we are stupid, he thinks that no matter how abjectly his designed programs fail, he can point to us as the problem- not his failure to understand….,

      Don’t worry – if the SHTF, the Progressives will be completely useless as they won’t own a gun and will wait for their hired armed guards or police to turn up to protect them and restore order. Meanwhile, “Let us assume, for the duration of this crisis, that we have plenty to eat and that roving gangs are not ruling the streets outside. I think I’ll have another slice of my imaginary cake because I’m very hungry. My equations confirm that this crisis must end today, so peaceful Socialism should break out really soon now.”

    Butthead is Gruber, the Pied Piper who has led us down this path of insanity.

    This is how/why Progressives Believe those not like them ARE evil, though they don’t believe in evil per se … but they are “open-minded” enough to lock that down as a confirmed conclusion.

    Real evil in the Progressive mind is a Christian creation of social control. As a result, Progressives understand and admire real evil because they can use it.

    Progressives constantly remind me why there is a commandment against bearing false witness against thy neighbour.

      Progressives rail against Christianity, claiming that it is and always has been a repressive force on every other culture as well as every minority group in our society. They believe that society would have been better off without it, and we would be living in harmony without it. What they don’t realise is that they live in a society that has the morality and ethics of Christianity even while they despise it. They do not realise that society without Christianity is not some Garden of Socialist Eden, but would very closely resemble the worst of Saudi Arabia and Iran and without Science or Engineering.

        For a close look at how a Progressive sees Christian or Judaeo-Christian society see Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale. Little does she know, and would be mortified to find out … she’s describing Muhammadism.

        So many Progressives project the reverse of their actual desire that Christians want to create a theocracy, because they refuse the data like a snob at a party. When ALL the western nations were founded, Christianity was unimpeded and they could’ve established Christian theocracies … but for some reason forgot.

        Instead, they created a society that is so free it can one day (that day is now), have agents and “citizens” within that can, through public office, openly work for the nation’s destruction based on Progressive superstitions and prejudices.

          Yes, to you or I Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale more closely resembles a muslim culture than any Christian culture.

          So I looked on Wikipedia to see what factors might have influenced Atwood to write such a book. None found in the entry on Atwood herself, and a single mention of Iran and Afghanistan in the the role of women under the ‘Historical Context’ label.

          A day or so ago I was listening to a podcast and the speaker casually mentioned that Atwood was influenced by her visit to Afghanistan. I was shocked, since it should have been mentioned that The Handmaid’s Tale is a patriarchal society where men control women’s sexuality and reproduction is hugely influenced by islamic culture.

          From The Guardian Nov 17, 2001, an article written by Atwood and with an editorial subheading of “When Margaret Atwood wrote The Handmaid’s Tale, it was a fiction drawn in part from fact: her conflicting feelings about the purple chador she bought on holiday in Afghanistan”.

          So why write about Christianity as the villain religion? Because at the time nobody cared (and really still doesn’t) about the rights of women in a foreign country populated by brown people and so it is most unlikely the book would have sold. They do care about Christianity though, with the Progressives keen for any book that slams Christianity and endeavours to discredit it, even in fiction.

    If I was younger, I would take him into the bush with minimum rations. I wouldn’t help him, I would just watch him die , as I survived

    • Watchman

      And then you would eat him, no?

        That is the general rule in winter survival training.

    “Mr Gruber has a complex and subtle knowledge of computer models and economic systems.”
    If he did, why did he f!ck up so completely? Was he exchanging bright ideas with Mikey Mann? Jimmy Hanson? Paul Erhlich?
