Bush-hating Jonathan Chait has come up with another lulu: "Liberalism's aversion to dogma makes it superior as a practical governing philosophy". Aversion to dogma?! There could be few things more dogmatic than the many dictates of Leftist political correctness! Political correctness is in fact more than a dogma: It is a whole catechism of things you are not allowed to say, think, do or discuss. It is the n commandments of Leftism. It's a wonder there's no Index expurgatorius to go with it but I guess they don't need one judging by how seldom bookshops display conservative books. But "liberalism" has its saints, of course: St. Sharpton, St. Jackson, St. Clinton, St. Roosevelt, St. Derrida, St. Foucault, St. Castro, St. Lenin, etc. -- all of whom are as near to sinless and faultless as you can get.

Troubling events in South Africa: ""We will kill the whites, all of them; Afrikaans and English," rioting Pasma students and their leaders at the university's Mamelodi campus chanted on Friday. Students barricaded gates with burning tyres in an effort to prevent police from gaining access and dispersing the crowds. Screaming "revolution is the only solution" and "kill the police, burn their cars", more than 200 students charged around the campus tearing up the university's flag, burning tyres and damaging trees..... Mahlangu, deputy secretary of the Gauteng Pasma regional office, promised that blood would flow at the university's main campus in Hatfield. "We have had enough of racist students and their lecturers who profess to have our interests at heart. We are tired of being discriminated against because we cannot pay the fees and because we are not passing".

There is another stupid attempt here to portray the Bush administration and its Christian supporters as "Fascist". One wonders if these galoots ever read history. Fascist regimes ensure that both the schools and the press are under tight government control and say only those things which support the government line. The USA is so far away from that that GWB cannot even get all the schools to use phonics in teaching kids how to read! And if you think that the New York Times and CBS and all of the rest of them support the Bush administration, you live in a parallel universe! I have commented on this brain-dead accusation at greater length before. See here and here

Using their usual "projective" propaganda technique (accusing others of what are in fact your own faults) Leftists very often accuse conservatives of rigging the vote when they in fact are great practitioners of bogus voter registrations and "voting early and voting often" themselves. Powerline notes a case of voter fraud on behalf of the NAACP which has now actually resulted in a conviction.

Newspeak anyone? "In Western political history the big breakthrough came when classical liberals identified the human individual as having the right to liberty. This took centuries of development, but with John Locke and other such liberals it emerged as a solid, coherent idea. Every adult is sovereign, self-ruling, not a subject of others' will, be these others neighbors, family, bureaucrats, a monarch, the majority, or whoever. Professor Fisher, however, wants to assimilate all these often mutually exclusive ideas of liberty and freedom, so that every tradition -- including those actually quite antithetical to individual liberty -- in which the words have appeared is pacified."

My latest posting on LEFTISTS AS ELITISTS records the words of a Leftist newspaper editor who resigned his job in disgust because the newspaper's readers made it too hard for him to inject his biases into what he published! These arrogant swine actually think it is their RIGHT to decide what the public will be allowed to know!

My latest posting on MarxWords shows that Marx greatly admired a pro-German racist. My latest posting on "A scripture blog" looks at the nature of the Holy Ghost.



That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the 2004 Kerry campaign. They put up a man whose policies seemed to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though the Left have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftists are phonies. For most of them all that they want is to sound good. They don't care about doing good. That's why they do so much harm. They don't really care what the results of their policies are as long as they are seen as having good intentions.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist"
