The Far Left Sucks

Lunatic fringe
I know you’re out there
You’re in hiding
And you hold your meetings
We can hear you coming
We know what you’re after
We’re wise to you this time
We won’t let you kill the laughter.

Lunatic fringe
In the twilight’s last gleaming
This is open season
But you won’t get too far
We know you’ve got to blame someone
For your own confusion
But we’re on guard this time
Against your final solution

We can hear you coming (We can hear you coming)
No you’re not going to win this time
We can hear the footsteps (We can hear the footsteps)
Way out along the walkway
Lunatic fringe
We know you’re out there
But in these new dark ages
There will still be light

An eye for an eye
Well before you go under
Can you feel the resistance?
Can you feel the thunder?


Don’t ever get to thinking that the ideas you had while you were drunk were any good.

Unless you’re already an asshole while you’re sober. In which case, you’re probably one of these guys:

Recently surfed over to Neo Neocon for her interview with Washington State pol Steve Beren. A former anti-war activist turned Republican office seeker. He has some interesting things to say on the rhetoric of war protesters.

What Steve Beren is saying about antiwar strategy can be put this way: If we had made a different choice in 2003 and invaded North Korea, the Bush Administration’s opponents would have spent the last three years bitching about why Bush wasn’t doing anything about the obvious problems in Iraq.
It doesn’t matter which battle your political adversary chooses to fight, as long as you consistently maintain the position that he picked the wrong battle. And if he decides to fight in more than one place, if he in fact chooses to fight ALL of the battles you say he should fight, you can always call him stupid for overextending himself.


I hear the grumbling rising up from the street
But as it reaches my ears it slowly changes its tune
to the whiiiiiine of
a baby or a starving mosquito
We hear of ‘emergency measures’ being taken
and your first question is:
What does it forbid you that you were formerly permitted?
You say something won’t work,
that’s it’s a waste of space
and an infringement upon your rights
But what I hear through all your cold and venomous logic is
“I didn’t know I had these rights until YOU tried to take them away
but now I want them back
you fucking fascist”

I guess you don’t care whether it has the slightest chance
of making you safer
if it means you’re restricted from doing
something you used to be able to do
I never understood how your mechanism
of perennial pessimism works
but I begin to find that it works in me as well
Going along to get along sounds like a mighty mean thing
to suggest to anyone
but is it too much to ask that you shut the fuck up?
Because I’m tired of hearing you
complain about what a police state we’re turning into
Do me a favor:
Go live in a REAL police state for fifteen weeks
and then come back, if they let you come back
and tell us what a fucking paradise they have over there

You are turning “America” into a dirty word
and for that I will not forgive you.

Death threats, lies, and sockpuppets galore.

The Anchoress says that we can no longer chalk this up to simple immaturity and lefty petulance; I’m inclined to agree, but what immaturity there is seems to have a familiar ring to it.  The Left is acting as if the political power it does not have is being wrongfully denied it, and they are doing exactly what Jules Winfield called it: “striking down among you, with great vengeance and furious anger, those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers.”

Because they think that’s what we’re trying to do to them – we discredit their arguments, and they see it as an attack on their lives, an attempt to “poison and destroy”.  (I’m sure I’ve talked about this before.)  They are convinced not only that they are objectively right, but that we are all part of a conspiracy to deny them the political supremacy they not only yearn for but deserve.

If you want to understand the Left, listen to the Doors playing “When The Music’s Over”, and listen to Jim Morrison scream: “WE WANT THE WORLD AND WE WANT IT… NOW.” That’s the pluperfect glimpse into the mind of a Lefty blogger – perennially disenfranchised, endlessly resentful, and ever more willing to do what it takes to silence opposition.

I don’t know what fears made Ayn Rand reject religion. You look at the Ten Commandments – the second half does not say anything out of line with what Rand said about not surrendering your life to someone else’s control. The point of them is to warn you against greed and jealousy.

Think what they say. Don’t murder anyone, don’t steal from anyone, don’t lie about them in public, don’t bang their spouse, and don’t waste your time hating someone else for having something that you want.

Except for the default “religion is irrational” position, the Objectivists have slightly more in common with Judeo-Christian philosophy than they’d care to admit.

Recent discussion of Rand on Gagdad Bob’s blog inspired these thoughts; if any Objectivists crossing here find it counter to their views on her philosophy, well, they can blame my lack of detailed knowledge.

“Of course the Left’s been spoiled.  Their grandparents made the mistake of spoiling their parents (the Greatest Generation’s one big error), and now their parents spoiled them.  So when millions of kids of Woodstock attendees grow up and find that the world is a lot tougher outside their home, they can’t hack it; instead of adapting to a harder world, they demand that the world adapt to softer people.”
