Fundamental Concepts - Nothing to Believe In [Weirddave]

The latest surge by ISIS has brought to the fore one of the hallmarks of modern leftism, and that is their absolute refusal to process facts that conflict with their worldview. Here we have ISIS, a murderous, genocidal Islamic supremacy group. They have stated quite openly that they intend to carve a caliphate out for themselves by any means necessary, and by “by any means” they mean as violently as possible. They view the West, Christianity, Secular Humanists, Hindus, everybody who doesn’t conform to their brand of Islam as the enemy, and they have only one tactic for dealing with the enemy : kill them and keep on killing them until they are either all dead or their remnant is so cowed that they convert to Islam. They justify this using the Koran and various Hadiths and they will quite happily tell anyone who will listen exactly what they believe is divine rational for their actions.

You or I look at this and say “Huh. These assholes want to kill us. Let’s arm ourselves and prepare. Let’s go out and kill them first to protect our weak and vulnerable. They have demonstrated again and again that they are serious, we should take them at their word”. To us, this is the most basic common sense. When ISIS says that they are going to smuggle terrorists in amongst Syrian refuges to kill us at home, something they have demonstrated the ability to do as recently as last week, we think it’s simply prudent to halt an influx of refugees that we can not verify free of terrorists. Again, simple common sense.

Our leaders, the so called smart set, don’t seem to agree, and an increasing percentage of the population is realizing that what we see as blindingly obvious, they don’t see at all? Why? I’ve seen this question asked more than once this past week on social media and in the press, and have yet to hear a good answer. It quite simply makes no sense.

When talking about leftists in the United States, it would be logical to assume that their denial of reality is tied to their investment in fantasy, and I do think that that is a part of it. They are absolutely committed to the Lightbringer narrative. Obama was supposed to do nothing less than change the way the world works, and the fact that he hasn’t must be obfuscated at all costs. The reality that his idiotic graduate school Utopian mindset has CAUSED many of these problems is blackest heresy that must never be spoken of out loud. There is a generous dollop of that amongst Proggys here, but Left Wing European elites have no reason to shield Obama from criticism, and yet they feel the same way. So what exactly is the reason that these people so stridently deny reality?

I think the roots go back to WWI. It is hard for us raised in a post WWI (and WWII) world to understand exactly how shattering WWI was to the psyche of the West. Tens of millions dead, the cream of an entire generation ripped from the bosom of their homes to be extinguished in the bloody horror of Gallipoli, Ypers and The Somme. Prior to WWI, the West (and by this we mean Christendom), had an unbounded confidence that it was the pinnacle of human achievement, leading the way to a brighter future (which came to pass, just look around at the material wonders of life in the West today). Post WWI the West recoiled from what it had done (only to do it again a generation later) and allowed a societal rot to take root and spread. Since traditional morals had so failed Christendom, then they must be done away with and replaced.

I’m going to fast forward a little bit over the details, books have been written about things like moral relativism, Marxist theory and secular humanism, but once you get to today you find that the vast majority of our “elites” share a mindset that makes them virtually incapable of responding to a threat like ISIS.

These people believe in the primacy of self. The ultimate end all be all of the universe is the 2.2 lbs of cabbage they have between their ears. Just their ears, what other people may think or believe has no bearing on the universe if it disagrees with their precious worldview. Now, it’s fine and dandy to recognize that the brain is the only tool we have to understand the universe. It is folly unbound to demand that the universe reconfigure itself to match the wishes of the brain. That is arrogance at its rawest, and that is what we see daily from the Left.

Obama arrogantly speaks of “universal values” without realizing that no, the values he’s referring to are anything but universal and in fact they are the product of a religious and moral code that he rejects.

The elites arrogantly reject that ISIS can hurt the West. Oh sure, they may kill some random members of the hoi polloi, but that won’t affect THEM. And it might not. Until it does, or until the hoi polloi get tired of bleeding all over the place and decide to make some changes.

The media arrogantly denies that the terrorists themselves have any agency. They constantly seek to excuse their bloody attacks by excusing them as pawns or blaming society, imperialism, Christians, corporations, BOOOOSH! Capitalism or whatever.

Most of all, what all of these smug assholes fail to accept, steeped as they are in their philosophy of self and blinded by the myth of their superior intellects, is that there are billions of people out there who do not subscribe to their selfish worldview: people who believe in something larger then themselves and who act upon those beliefs. They can’t understand it when they run across it in their own culture for God’s sake (That Christians might have an honest belief that homosexuality is a sin does not compute. Christians MUST be bigots, or homophobes or haters), they have no chance at recognizing it in a foreign one. Last week in Paris, one of the terrorists calmly went down a row of handicapped people in wheelchairs and calmly executed each and every one of them in turn. I guarantee you that as this evil man calmly committed this bloody and evil act, he felt in his heart the same satisfaction that you do when you give money to a homeless man Mr. Elite. These people have their own beliefs and the free will to act upon them. They will tell you all about them if you ask, and even if you don’t. They are PROUD of what they are doing. They BRAG about their bloody ways. THEY MEAN WHAT THEY SAY.

Unfortunately, that is so utterly foreign to the worldview of our so-called elites that they just don’t get it, and I doubt the ever will because it contradicts that worldview completely. To understand they would have to let go of the arrogance that sustains them, and that’s a very hard row to hoe.

And that leaves us screwed. How can we defeat out enemies if we refuse to take them seriously?

1 The worldwide number of annual terrorist deaths has more than quadrupled since President Barack Obama was inaugurated in January 2009.

Deaths from terrorism increased 80 percent last year to an all-time-record of 32,658 people killed, compared to 18,111 in 2013. The number is up about 426 percent from the 7,654 killed by terrorists in 2008 under President Bush, according to the latest report

6 They have a view of the world based on their ideology and philosophy. When empirical reality disagrees with that, they simply refuse to accept it. They exist in their own little spacetime warp bubble, where reality as we know doesn't intrude.

And what I learning is how many of the elites who are supposedly on our side live in that same bubble. They claim to be conservative, but they were raised and educated in that same warp bubble.

10 Because they are fundamentally unserious leaders.
Look at the issues they try to discuss: climate change, income inequality, abortion access, gun control, affirmative action, etc. Then compare it to what Americans think are the most important issues and those liberal issues above are always near the absolute bottom of the list.
Why do they yammer about them? They aren't really vote winners. Gun control is actually toxic. They simply can't do otherwise. They have a myopic, deeply ignorant and ahistorical view of the world and exist in a bubble which was created by "academia."

I think that some of the leftists do honestly see actions like that as the action of one person--"one of the terrorists." And then they ask what could have prevented that one person from doing that? If only he had felt more validated, had had a better job.

15 And the leftist talking point that most terror is not Islamic is of this flavor - they simply redefine Islamic terror movements as "not Islamic" and clap like seals when the NYT publishes the report.

The actual problem is not a soundbyte, nor will it go away if you close your eyes and hum real loud.

After 9/11, there was quite the move on the left to go so far as to argue with Islamists about what they *really* meant and did. It's kind of like when they call us bigots and accuse us of (whatever idiot thing they just made up).

The same urge that drives them to crudely attack Jindal for not acting the way THEY WANT Indians to act drives them to lie about Islam, conservatism, or anything else they come across.

If it wasn't for the MFM, they would rightly be regarded as loons.

Maybe so, but it's all Buuuuuuuuuusssssssshhhhhh's fault.

If he hadn't invaded Iraq for no reason (other than Big Oil and Halliburton and lies about WMD), then the Muslim world would all love and respect us now. Especially since the U.S. elected me. Did you know I grew up in Indonesia, had a Muslim step-daddy for a couple of years, and think the Muslim call to prayer is the most beautiful sound in all the world? Aren't I special?

I am Citizen of the World Barack Obama. If only you xenophobic, raaaaaaacist clingers had recognized my greatness sooner, I could have fixed everything. But alas, you waited too long, and there is only so much a LightWorker can do. I have rolled over for the terrorists at every turn; I gave them back Afghanistan and Iraq, and even threw in Libya for free! I have armed ISIS in Syria, and done everything possible to throw open U.S. borders to bring more here. I have been in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood for so many years now that my anus is sore. But still it's not enough. And all because of Buuuuussssshhh!

None at all. They don't make arguments because the argument is valid or because the situation warrants it, but because of their warped view of reality and how they think they can push people closer to it.

I don't think throwing away our lives for nothing was worth it, any more than throwing away the lives of the Iraqis when we walked out on them, like Vietnam.

A person can commit, a government can't be trusted to do so, as it turns out.

41 You are a smart guy, Dave and this premise could even be true but I have a different take.

I don't think the Obama-elites, the hard left, really give a damn about the proles. It's why they want to call terrorism, "man caused disasters". The problem they see with dead citizens is that it roils the masses. They believe in the big picture and the big picture is the State. And if creating the State in their own image causes some amount of the citizenry to assume room temperature, well omelets, eggs and all. This deal with Syria is about Obama making sure the US can never interfere there again. Part of that is bringing middle easterners here to vote and to be an underlying threat.

62 I've been thinking about this some lately, let me give it a stab (heh).

Progressives reject traditional models of morality as mean-spirited, outdated.
They yearn to view themselves as "good" people.
Having rejected the notion of themselves as "flawed, failed or sinners" they construct an internal truth system that all people want to be "good" to the point that they are truly puzzled when evil perpetrators perpetrate evil.
They ask themselves, 'what could have led to a basically good person doing something so horrific?" and the only answer they can come up with is that some outside influence is to blame (lack of jobs, resentment over centuries-old imperialistic imprecations, global warming, etc)

To wrap it all up, there must be an underlying villain, the villain they rejected when they decided they were "good". It must be the evil people who tried to force their morality on me when I was younger, i.e. my parents (substitute Tea Party, Republicans, The Rich, any establishment figure), and voila, root cause!

Shorter version- extended adolescent rebellion.

88
Has anybody noticed that the left ALWAYS to claims some sort of secret and obscure deeper understanding of people? The claim to possess secret knowledge of another, something hidden to them, is a form of power. I understand you better than you do, and can manipulate you, and know what is best for you, so shut up and do as I say. It also means that I never have to admit you are right, and I never have to change my position on anything.

Secret knowledge is intoxicating, especially when it comes pre-packaged from a professor, and requires little effort to hold. Trust me, leftists are dumb. DUMB. They have memorized a few talking points, and a lot of attitude. When their world view is challenged there is a palpable panic in the air, and a desperate need to change the subject.

It all started with Freud.

In the Western tradition, Man ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, thereby trading immortality and paradise for morality. Lefties think that they can trade back this knowledge of morality and recover immortality and paradise.

This delusion is the motivation for the small percentage of true believer leftists. THe rest of the left are just weak, damaged personalities that have illusory out-of-control guilt swamping their emotions and react to that by hating their fathers and wanting to destroy everything that reminds them of their fathers and themselves - i.e. nihilistic self-haters who are out to destroy everything familiar.

151 Just finished rubbing kosher salt, fresh rosemary, and lemon zest into raw turkey. Inside and out.

{{{{{{shudder}}}}}}

Tomorrow, I remove the plastic wrap, and allow the bird to air dry overnight in the garage frig. It produces a translucent skin. Which becomes a crisp, glorious bird.

Thanks, Ina Garten.

Posted by: Jane D'oh at November 24, 2015 07:35 PM (FsuaD)

172 The primary problem is the left views Western Civilization as their prime ideological enemy. not Islam. The secondary problem is too many have appeased the left only making them stronger, see "compassionate conservatism". Islam has simply taken advantage of those internal faults which if not fixed soon will take the west down.

That is why the next Civil War will be a battle for the entire civilization...from Europe to America.

The smart move is to tie the left to Islam and let Islam take the left down with them. To do that we have to stop playing nice on our side and say lots of bad (and true) things about Islam and the left and put them in the same cart. That is why even if you do not like Trump, at least learn from him. You have to be rough with those who want to do you harm...including the left.

Lots of collateral damage in that, but if we want to survive as a civilization we have no choice.

Remove from oven and stir in bourbon. Refrigerate cranberry sauce until well chilled. Keeps for about a week. Transfer to bowl and serve.

Wonder how the cranberry sauce would taste like with rum instead of bourbon?

200 I have had this theory:

The leftists on top, like Obama, Clinton, etc., are so protected they don't worry about anything happening to them or their wealthy lives.

The regular leftists among the hoi polloi figure the odds are statistically that nothing will happen to them personally.

Neither group cares about anyone else. Both get to feel all sanctimonious and superior at little risk to themselves. And both think their viewpoints are worth much more than a few other people's lives.

Regarding treatment of women and gays, they just don't talk about that. I guess it kind of bothers or embarrasses them.

In any case, they consider it the duty of other people to die for their beliefs. Besides, they figure most of us (themselves excluded) aren't worth saving anyway, and are inferior to the noble, misunderstood savages.

I think they figure we remain racist xenophobic everything-else-phobe-and-ist DESPITE their teachings, while people like radical Muslims simply haven't been sufficiently exposed to their enlightened viewpoints yet. They imagine this group can be loved and "understood" enough to eventually come around to proper pc outlooks.

Or something like that.

201 "How can we defeat out enemies if we refuse to take them seriously?"

There are two different "we's" in that sentence. How can we expect to live if we cannot differentiate between them? The answer is obvious - we cannot. The second "we" has to go.

A drubbing at the ballot box should be enough, but we have just seen that in the face of a corrupted media, it isn't. If we can do a clean sweep of incumbents, perhaps that will do it... nothing short of a purge will, clearly.

And if we don't do the purge now with our votes, how will we end up doing it short of violence?

_______________________________________________

Well, our enemies aren't gonna sit around waiting for us to get our acts together, so the stupid arrogance will either be swept aside politically, or violently, depending on how desperate the situation has become. Much damage will be done that could have been avoided, but the survival instinct will eventually cull this idiocy one way or the other.

Simple. We have to recognize that our enemies include those elites and their dupes, and kill as many of them as necessary to remove them from any positions of authority that stop us from dealing with the rest of our enemies.

It won't be easy, but it is terribly simple, once we admit the reality.

209 "...what all of these smug assholes fail to accept, steeped as they are in
their philosophy of self and blinded by the myth of their superior
intellects, is that there are billions of people out there who do not
subscribe to their selfish worldview..."

If you replace the word "billions" in the above with "many", you have the French Revolution (FR1.0). At that time, poor illiterates vastly outnumbered the middle class and elites. The illiterates won and pretty much account for the subsequent French history. A modern version of the French Revolution (World Revolution (WR2.0)) would be somewhat different. Today, the first world's middle class is as well educated as the elite assholes and is not nearly as subscribed to their selfish worldview. If a pogrom against the elites (and some troublesome poor folks too) started up, the results should be better than FR1.

...extract tongue from cheek...
