“Evidently, not everyone lets go of mistakes”

For the Loony Left, no bad idea ever really dies.

One look at the lineup of Democrat presidential candidates and I have to wonder what we’re coming to — is this the best the party can come up with? Really? If the Democrats make up roughly half the population, then why are these people the cream that’s risen to the top? If they’re the top, what on God’s green earth is at the bottom?

What’s at the bottom is thoughtlessness – empty, emotional symbolism hardened into a rock-hard ideology. This lack of thought is foundational to the left. You can’t have curious, inquisitive minds mucking about trying to make sense out of things if none of the goals of your organization is sensible. What they must have is a battalion of ideologues.

That’s an interesting word, ideologue. It’s taken on an unattractive patina over the years. It originated from ideology, a French word that came into use in the 18thcentury. It meant “the science of ideas.” The word has soured appreciably since then. On the other hand, the word idea is still shiny – we think of ideas as good; every one of the things that make our lives delightful came from someone’s idea.

But some ideas have not been good. I’ll admit to having had hundreds of bad ideas during my life – I have acknowledged that and abandoned the boondoggles when I recognized them (I have many an unfinished project to attest to that). Evidently, not everyone lets go of mistakes. The 20th century stained history with horrific ideas – the leftist agenda alone proudly produced the Third Reich, the murderous Soviet Union, the Chinese massacre of some 60 million of its own citizens, the Vietnam fiasco, the crumbling of Europe, the impoverishing of Cuba,– and now in the 21st century, we’re staring down the starvation of North Korea and Venezuela and the impossibility of the Green New Deal. The amazing thing is that adherence to the leftist credo is still intact – solidified into an impervious, concrete-hard protective shell continuously promoted by fossilized ideologues.

An ideologue is a person who dogmatically defends and promotes demonstrable failures. It’s a form of sclerosis of the mind – a hardening to the extent that logic shrivels into a dried pea of a thing, useless and ugly. I am sure that if doctors did thermographic images of liberal brains they’d find this little pebble in a vast blank area formerly known as the left lobe.

You’d have to find a brain in that howling void between liberal ears first.

  2. The Dem debate tops all clown shows. It was a scary clown show and an even better crazy train. My fear is that there are enough brain damaged and emotionally stunted people to actually support such vile policies.

  3. The bad ideas of the lunatic left will die…but ONLY when the lunatic left is dead.
