Think about this for a moment.
They used to be called communists. But that soon became a pejorative and so they didn’t want to be called communists anymore.
Then they wanted to be called socialists. That too became a pejorative and they didn’t want that title.
Now they are called liberals. This too has already become a pejorative and they don’t like being called liberal.
Now they want to be called progressives. Do you see a pattern here?
Compare with the (erstwhile pejorative) “mormon”. Yes, it used to be a pejorative, in the same way the N-word or the new F-word (with 6 letters meaning a bundle of sticks) are pejoratives. And yet, there is a whole group of millions of people running around calling themselves “mormon” today. Why did this pejorative become a badge of honor, and “communist” become a pejorative?
It is because the people grow to learn the true meaning of the words we use. They learn that communist, socialist, liberal, and soon progressive are all another word for evil–not the kind of evil you imagine when you are a child in Sunday School, but the absolutely terrifying and disturbing kind of evil that exists in the heart of murderers, rapists, and traitors. It is so evil and so terrible that they actually think they are doing good.
That’s why the names we use to label them become pejoratives. No one would ever want to be labelled a communist, socialist, liberal, or progressive in the same way you don’t want to walk around with a shirt that says, “I rape and murder little boys secretly.”
Evan Sayet gives a fine, 45 minute lecture on the modern liberalism, what it is based on, and what it all means. (link) He knows because he lived among them. He understands things I can never understand because I have never been more than arm’s length to a real liberal.
The story that struck me was about the man who claims to hate his wife. You kind of laugh about it, thinking deep down inside that he can’t possible be serious and it all must be some kind of joke. But then you see a mugger beating up his wife and he stands by, nodding in approval. It is then that you realize that he really does hate his wife, and he wasn’t joking.
That’s the way the modern liberals are. They are more than willing to tell you what they are and what they stand for, but you find it is difficult to believe them. “They can’t really want these things–it’s suicidal,” you think. But events in these times prove that you are wrong–they really do want to see America destroyed, they really do want babies slaughtered, they really do want good, honest men thrown in prison and evil men set in positions of power.
It is so evil that they walk around wearing their evil on their shirt as if it was a badge of honor or a mark of goodness. This is the kind of evil you would expect Satan to whisper to the masses to lull them to sleep, except it comes from their mouths.
I can write here about how not just some, but every issue modern liberals stand for are evil. It is as if they pull out their moral compass, find which way points toward “good”, and then choose to walk in exactly the opposite direction.
The problem is you would read my arguments the same way you would listen to your friend go on about how he hates his wife. You wouldn’t, you can’t believe that it could all be possibly true. But the truth is the truth–they are evil in the most evil way possible.
To my friends who are “casually” liberal, that is, who think they are liberal but don’t really understand why, I wish you would start asking why sooner rather than later. Why is it okay to slaughter a child before they are born and not after? Why is it okay for two perverted men to get “married” to each other and adopt children to raise them to be as perverted as themselves? Why is it okay to kill an innocent, crippled woman but not a hardened murderer? Why is it okay to attack our commander in chief in the middle of a war as if he were the enemy?
The answers will surprise you. You will know you have found them when you start calling yourself “conservative.”
