No, I don’t say “virtually all” lightly. Though raised in a peaceful Leftist household, I can plainly state why liberals comprise the vast majority of those turning to violence. But first, lest anyone assume otherwise in this latest case of “Coward shoots at helpless victims,” observe a couple excerpts from a Denver Post article (one which tried mightily to minimize the gunman’s leftwing fanaticism):
“In one Facebook post, Pierson attacks the philosophies of economist Adam Smith, who through his invisible-hand theory pushed the notion that the free market was self-regulating. In another post, he describes himself as ‘Keynesian.’”
‘Pierson also appears to mock Republicans on another Facebook post, writing ‘you republicans are so cute’ and posting an image that reads: ‘The Republican Party: Health Care: Let 'em Die, Climate Change: Let 'em Die, Gun Violence: Let 'em Die, Women's Rights: Let 'em Die, More War: Let 'em Die. Is this really the side you want to be on?’"
Once again, another Leftist embraces violence. It never ends. But why?
I’ve written on this before. After the Boston Bombings back in April, I wrote an article entitled, “Why The Right Rarely Kills.” Pardon the occasional rehash, but I’ll blend a few sections from that article into this, as the realities—and causes—of Leftist killing are timeless truths.
What first struck me about the Boston killings—beside the obvious horror—was the Left’s desperate crusade to find a rightwing motive. Salon’s David Sirota openly hoped the Boston killers were “white American males.” No, seriously—perhaps he felt this would comfort grieving families. David Axelrod suggested the killings were related to “Tax Day”—a clear dig at the Tea Party. But Axelrod wasn’t alone. Also accusing those flag-waving patriots were Michael Moore and Chris Matthews; and to my knowledge, neither apologized. None wanted to face a clear case of Muslim terrorism, since Muslims strongly favor the Left.
Remember the furor over Jared Loughner—supposed rightwing nut? Turns out he was a Democrat who studied the hard-left works of Marx and Hitler. And what about the Sandy Hook shooter? Ummm…Adam Lanza was a Democrat. How about the Aurora monster, James Holmes? Well, Holmes was a CU grad student—not exactly a bastion of the GOP voter base. I’ve heard he worked on the local Obama campaign, but I’ve no idea if that’s true. At any rate, if he were rightwing, we’d have heard it shouted from the highest CNN rooftops.
Kennedy was shot by a leftwing Socialist, as was Reagan. The Fort Hood shooter was a Leftist Muslim, as were the aforementioned boys of Boston. Columbine? Atheists hunting Christians. Seung-Hui Cho, the killer of 32 innocents at Virginia Tech? Democrat. The LA cop-killer? A big time Obama supporter. The Naval shipyard shooter? You guessed it—Democrat.
Never ending is the pattern: First, the Democrats disarm Americans in shooting galleries called Gun-Free Zones. Then inevitably, some cowardly Democrats prey on the disarmed in those Gun-Free Zones. And finally, the Democrats push for more restrictive gun laws their fellow Dems won’t follow—and of course, for more Gun-Free Zones. Disarm-kill-shift blame, disarm-kill-shift blame—it’s what the Left does. It’s who they are. And throughout it all, the leftwing media searches high and low for that elusive “rightwing killer”—one they can use to distract from the mounting body count built by their practices.
But it gets worse. Let’s look at who does more killing in America—street gangs, drug lords, convicts, infiltrating Mexican cartels, radical abortionists like Kermit Gosnell—and let’s wonder, “If we polled these groups, how many of their members would favor the Republican Party, the Tea Party, or the NRA?” Answer: VIRTUALLY NONE.
But hey, to see the biggest liberal killing, just look at nations run by the Left. Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Mussolini, Castro, Hussein, and don’t forget the wonders of Tiananmen Square. Yes, most American Democrats are good people, but the fact remains that as their ideological allies increase power, the death toll rises.
And we must ask this fundamental question: Why?
The answer lies in the Left’s goal of control. Think about it. You can’t value those you hope to control. You just can’t. For you, they are assets to manipulate; or worse yet, roadblocks to your plans. And the deeper you plunge into this mindset, the more people transform before your eyes…from precious beings…into cattle.
Why do liberals love social programs (beyond the intoxicating joy of buying votes with other people’s money)? Simple: It’s controlled charity. No longer allowing others to freely decide whom to help, you get to seize their money through taxation and direct it to your chosen causes. You actually control their charity—which is just about the greatest control one can have.
But there is greater control. How about public education? Think about it: Unlike churches, which rely on freely given donations to sustain their missions, the Left actually seizes money from people of all beliefs and then uses it to teach one side—theirs—to everyone’s kids. I always laugh when people label the Christian Right as “controlling,” since nothing done by the Christian Right could ever compare to the Left’s control through public schools. I mean, using money from all sides to teach one side? How could any church approach that kind of dominance?
Activist judges, union thuggery, Harry Reid killing the filibuster, Obamacare, wage controls, censoring speech through political correctness, IRS targeting of rightwing groups, controlling energy production through Global Warming lies, Black Panthers with clubs outside voting booths—the Left’s legacy of control grows and grows.
This is what liberalism is all about: Controlling individuals through collective power. Hence, the Left’s greater occurrence of violence.
You see, violence is the final expression of control. Whether borne of bitterness or entitlement, one’s lust for control can reduce humans to subhuman status; at which time violence becomes acceptable. Hurt them, and they’ll yield. Strike terror, and they’ll cower. Kill them, and they’ll oppose you no more.
Let this be a lesson to anyone on the Right who wishes to control the choices of fellow Americans. You may think you’re advocating for good, but in actuality you’ve taken the first step down a road paved by the Left—a road that ends with an innocent girl clinging to life after a shooting at Arapahoe High School.
We in The Party Of Choice have a slogan: “We support every individual choice that doesn’t directly limit someone else’s choice.” In other words, as long as your choice doesn’t take away someone else’s choice, keep it. We don’t want our preferences to be your laws, because we don’t want to be your gods (unlike the Left, we don’t think we’re qualified). We don’t want control; we only prevent the Left from seizing it.
That’s the beauty of Choice—the enemy of Control. While we rightwingers are no better than leftwingers, our beliefs revolve around personal liberty (Choice), valuing people as freely-choosing individuals. Hence, we don’t see people as cattle. Their liberty is our liberty, since their free decisions show our inner freedom to allow them. We control our own lives, not theirs. We’re content—and they’re safe.
Last week, yet another leftist let his desire for control rise to the level of violence. Had he not been surprised by someone having a gun to shoot back (these leftist killers are such cowards), he no doubt would have gone on a killing spree. He saw his fellow students as cattle, not people. To him, they were not amazing creations to be unleashed. To this committed Socialist, they needed to be managed. Herded. Controlled. And once they and his teacher no longer met his needs, well…
His parents say they can’t imagine what drove him to violence, but I can. His was the mentality of the Left, my friends, and the only question is how deeply each Leftist feels it. Some just want you to drink less soda. Some want to silence you to control what they must hear. Some would use government to take from you and control where the money goes—forget about real reward and real charity. Some would even disarm you with Gun-Free Zones and control your very safety.
And those who take liberalism to its logical end will seek the ultimate control over the people they view as cattle…
…by slaughtering them.
Someday, I pray Americans will wake up to the Left’s mindset, lest our death toll rises to match fully Socialist nations. Liberalism kills, folks. Always has, always will.
Spread the word.
