LEFTISM is like a Religion: Faith-based. Not Logical.

LEFTISM is like a Religion: Faith-based. Not Logical.

"You MUST Believe!" Do Not question, Do Not Think, Do Not Understand

EMOTION-based: Feel good. Look good to others. Without actually Logically Testing if you ARE good.

The Religion of Leftism

10fe23b3-20f1-4302-a408-a4c5ee25a938.jpg

Over the last decade, America has moved drastically to the left. Not only are more people on the left than ever before, the left is further left than it’s ever been. This radical brand of progressivism has come to be known as “leftism”—an extreme yet increasingly dominant segment of the political spectrum.

At the same time, America has grown more secular. According to Pew, “religious nones” are rapidly growing in number. These “nones” are most concentrated among millennials: 36% of millennials are religiously unaffiliated. Millennials happen to also be America’s most politically progressive generation.

This probably isn’t a coincidence, especially since the same trends have occurred in a similar way in other parts of the world, such as Europe. While correlation doesn’t prove causation, politics and religion are so closely related that it’s hard to believe the simultaneous popularization of extreme leftism and secularism is insignificant.

My theory is this: the country hasn’t actually become less religious. Many people have simply replaced traditional religion with leftism. Rather than associating with Christianity, for example, which demands repentance and promises persecution, they have opted for a religion that conveniently offers a sense of righteousness but denies the need to take responsibility for their own actions.

Leftism provides many of the same comforts that religion does without the expectation of personal sacrifice. Its adherents can feel that they’re caring for the “least of these” because they vote for policies that empower the government to offer more welfare to the poor. It is a lazy form of compassion, and it is appealing to those who want to pat themselves on the back without having to voluntarily spend of their own time, energy or money.

On a personal level, unlike Christianity, leftism doesn’t worry its adherents with sin and life-change. The only sin is to say there’s sin. The only wrong is to say there’s wrong. The highest virtue is one’s own happiness, and the only truth is that which one finds in themselves. This, of course, is antithetical to what the Bible teaches, which is part of why it is very difficult—if not altogether impossible—to be a Bible-believing Christian and a radical leftist.

STRATEGY for Converting those on the Right

Dominatrix specializes in turning 'white, right-wing men' into socialists...

 

A growing wave of sex-positive feminists are working to usher in what they describe as a “pleasure revolution” in which women’s sexuality is embraced, rather than stigmatized, by both individuals and society at large. According to advocates of the movement, such as author and feminist Stephanie Theobold, the pleasure revolution is “about women asserting their own pleasure,” just as the #MeToo movement was about the problem of “men imposing their pleasure on women.” But for Reba Maybury, a 27-year-old political science professor and professional dominatrix, the larger problem is a historical power imbalance that she’s now working to correct in a unique fashion.

A socialist of mixed-race background, Maybury, who also goes by the name Mistress Rebecca, says that she had “always been fascinated by sex and notions of shame around sexuality,” particularly in regard to fetishes.

“I find it ridiculous how secretive people are about fetishes, because everybody has them. Some are just more extreme than others. For most people fetishes are quite subtle and sensitive,” she explains.

For many of her clientele, who are almost exclusively white right-wing men because she finds herself unable “to be even fictionally cruel to any other type of man,” that fetish is serving a powerful woman. Maybury derives her pleasure comes from forcing those men to see the contradiction between their love of powerful women and their support for political parties that actively work to limit women’s rights and empowerment. In her book, Dining with Humpty Dumpty, she detailed conversations with a man she said exhibited the “disgusting contradiction” of claiming to be both “a ‘female supremacist’ and a Tory.’”

Feminist pornographer says porn can be a tool for empowerment — if it’s done right

Lady Veronica and her ‘paypig’ Zule explain a rising trend in BDSM — ‘financial domination’

Controversial author writes a ‘hall pass’ for women to be more sexually adventurous

Feminist pornographer Erika Lust has spoken out to counter critics who suggest that porn is to blame for men’s toxic treatment of women, and called on the industry to promote the making of “ethical porn” that “represents individuals having sex, not men ‘doing’ sex to women.” Speaking to The Local, Lust, who was born in Sweden but now works in Barcelona, Spain, explained that she is an ardent supporter of sex-positive feminism.

“For me, feminism is the belief that women and men should have equal rights and opportunities in all aspects of life,” she said. “It is sisterhood. Supporting another woman’s right to do whatever she wants — however different another woman’s expression may be from yours. That includes sexual freedom, which is a basic human right.”

And while the broader porn industry, she acknowledged, “definitely mirrors our society, which blatantly neglects female autonomy and pleasure,” she said it was unfair to “say that porn alone has mainstreamed sexual assault.”

MSNBC RATINGS JUMP...

Case of Mueller Mystery Nemesis Picks Up...
Everything under seal...

MSNBC is having a great week in the ratings.

Granted, Fox News won November, with ratings titan Sean Hannity marking his eighth consecutive month as the most watched show. But MSNBC has stormed ahead of his network this week, with Rachel Maddow winning every night in total viewers.

. . . Law&Crime has previously reported on the mysterious legal battle that appears to be going on between Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s office and an unidentified grand jury witness.

This latest development comes two weeks after the unknown appellant filed a 6,487-word brief in the case.

Speculation has been rampant as to what the case is about. Is it a challenge to Mueller’s authority like those brought by Roger Stone associate Andrew Miller or Concord Management? Is it something else altogether?

And most intriguingly, who is it?

'MSNBC not more legit than DRUDGE just because Maddow more educated'...

Slightly Offens*ve’s Elijah Schaffer headed to the University of Southern California campus to ask students if they love or hate the United States of America.
Here are some of their reactions:
“America is trash and I look forward to the day it burns down.”
“It can be great. Right now it’s meh.”
“Mother f***ers over here is full of s***.”
When Schaffer asked who the “mfs” in the last statement were, the student answered without hesitation: “Donald Trump and his people. They full of s**t.”

Hillary Clinton, satan's chosen one - of whom THIS was written recently

. . . “What scares me the most is Hillary’s smug certainty of her own virtue as she has become greedy and how typical that is of so many chic liberals who seem unaware of their own greed,” Charlie Peters, the legendary liberal former editor of The Washington Monthly, told me. “They don’t really face the complicity of what’s happened to the world, how selfish we’ve become and the horrible damage of screwing the workers and causing this resentment that the Republicans found a way of tapping into.” He ruefully worries about the Obamas in this regard, too.

Discussing the 2018 midterm results in Florida, Georgia and Mississippi, Sharpton said, “Blacks lost for governor in two and senator in one but made measurable increases in our vote. I believe we won Georgia, it was robbed.”

cmon. its not that complicated.

right - survival of the fittest.

left - no one left behind.

Also not surprising America has become slightly more left wing as the population there realises they have become the gimpy cancer the rest of the global population wants to see euthanized.

Luckily leftism is only for its financial sector tho, rest of them can die a slow, painful, retarded death of lead poisening from the water, or some other such catastrophy that only affects right wing cess pools.

being successfull and left wing requires wealth, education and hard work.

You cant have a left wing economy when the entire population are braindead drones.

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs"

Only works when your population, on the whole, has ability.

I simply prefer a society where buskers get dropped $100 bills because we can (left wing), rather than a society where everybody is begging for $1 bills because the whole society is bankrupt (right wing)

Instead of Christmas, Lefties want THIS

Satanic Sculpture Installed At Illinois Statehouse,

Just In Time For Holidays...

x

In the Illinois Capitol rotunda this month, several traditions are being celebrated. There's a Nativity scene for Christmas, a menorah for Hanukkah, and then something a little different: an arm holding an apple, with a snake coiled around it.

It's a gift from the Chicago branch of The Satanic Temple. Called "Snaketivity," the work also has a sign that reads "Knowledge Is The Greatest Gift."

Nearby stands a sign in which the state offers a civics lesson — and explains it didn't have much of a choice:

"The State of Illinois is required by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution to allow temporary, public displays in the state capitol so long as these displays are not paid for by taxpayer dollars. Because the first floor of the Capitol Rotunda is a public place, state officials cannot legally censor the content of speech or displays. The United States Supreme Court has held that public officials may legally impose reasonable time, place and manner restrictions regarding displays and speeches, but no regulation can be based on the content of the speech."

Illinois Secretary of State spokesman Dave Druker told The State Journal-Record the temple has the same rights as religious organizations. "This recognizes that."

NOT LOVE, but Hate (towards imaginary "oppressors") is at the Core

th?id=OIP.Y4rZjM7lP81Ohboma5IeTAHaJH&w=1

Spielberg, 25 years after 'Schindler's List,' warns against collective hate

"When collective hate organizes and gets industrialized, then genocide follows," the legendary director said.

In the wake of the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue in October, acclaimed Hollywood director Steven Spielberg believes now, more than ever, is when people must confront the alarming rise in hateful ideologies.

Spielberg's Academy Award-winning film about the Holocaust, "Schindler's List," is returning to select theaters this week in honor of its 25th anniversary. It's a story that still resonates today, he said in an interview with "NBC Nightly News" anchor Lester Holt airing Wednesday.

"I think there is more at stake today than even back then," Spielberg said, referring to when the film was released.

"When collective hate organizes and gets industrialized, then genocide follows," said Spielberg. "We have to take it more seriously today than I think we have had to take it in a generation," he said during a time of heightened identity politics and the massacre of 11 people at the Tree of Life synagogue in which the suspected shooter left a trail of anti-Semitic posts online.

Wtf makes you think Calif is left wing? The huge taxes they impose on Google, Apple and Amazon?

California is about as far right as an economy can be without violently imploding.

Most of the population begging for food and hardly able to pay for a roof over their head while paying tax to their eyeballs for zero public services, a few massive corporations scamming everything and everybody and getting massive subsidies.

Bill And Hillary Clinton Are About To Go Away Forever

JEWEL SAMAD / Staff / Getty Images

Yes, people, the day is coming, and it’s coming fast: We’re almost done for good with Bill and Hillary Clinton.

How can we be sure, you ask? Here’s how: Tickets to see them live and hear them blab about their lives are selling for the cost of a Big Mac meal at McDonald’s.

. . . Why are Bill and Hillary traveling the country charging people top dollar to hear them bloviate? It’s not the money: The couple made $250 million in the 15 years after Bubba left office (and Hillary made bank selling access — and favors — while she was secretary of state).

No, they just want … to be loved. Like poor Charles Foster Kane, they just need to be loved. “That’s why he went into politics. It seems we weren’t enough. He wanted all the voters to love him, too,” Jedediah Leland says in the classic Orson Welles movie.

There's not much Future in being "satan's chosen one" after such an Epic Failure as the 2016 election.

yeah, you know, the very epitome of right wing politics:

widespread inequality - check

elitism - check

low tax on the elites - check

high tax on individuals - check

crap public services - check

widespread poverty (poor housing and food/water supply) - check

_____

"leftism" is the exact opposite of all of those. = "No one left behind"

Huh?

I lived there.... their attitude is 'I don't need to care for the poor because I pay taxes'. This idea is at the centre of Marxist thinking. The idea that you 'outsource your social responsibility to the state'. Your check list doesn't make sense. It could apply equally to France: a highly leftist state which is now in turmoil because the Socialist policies of the last 50 years have utterly failed.

A Marxist system has neither money nor tax.

Everybody does what they have the greatest talent, and delivers it directly to those who most need it. Everybody is wealthy because food and shelter are not scarce resources.

Since making food and shelter scarce expensive resources is how the elites maintain their death grip on their populations, its pretty obvious why they do everything they can to demonise such thoughtcrimes.

The checklist also doesn't apply remotely to France:

widespread inequality - one of the best in the world920px-2014_Gini_Index_World_Map,_income_

elitism - they put them to the guillotine from 1789

low tax on the elites - nope, high tax on business

high tax on individuals - nope, many indiviuals live tax free.

crap public services - nope, some of the best in the world. (e.g. new mothers get nurses to do their housework)

All of which they keep by fighting for it.
