Harshing your mellow since 9/01

On projection, lies, and the Left

Murder: it’s a Democrat thing.

We can start with the striking statistic that 68 percent of all homicides occur in just certain parts of 5 percent of America’s counties — and all, or virtually all, of these are Democrat areas.

Obviously, viewing people as objects leads to objectification; you use objects and, when the spirit moves you, maybe even abuse objects. This is why leftists such as sanctimonious Pete Buttigieg and Irish Bob (O’Rourke) will politicize tragedies such as the El Paso and Dayton shootings before the blood is even dry. To them, the victims are objects that serve a purpose, a means to an end.

Of course, projecting, leftists are also full of the hate they ascribe to others. (After all, they’re incapable of hating what they see as the sin without hating whom they see as the sinner, so they assume that others operate likewise.) This is why former CNN host Reza Aslan, an Iranian immigrant who once ate human flesh on television, recently sent a tweet in which he appeared to say all Trump-supporters should be eradicated.

If that was his meaning, he’d just be carrying on a long tradition. The “Left” has been bloody ever since it was born during the French Revolution, where Maximilien Robespierre’s crew killed thousands in the Reign of Terror. Since then, the USSR’s Stalin, China’s Mao, Cambodia’s Pol Pot, and others have added approximately 100 million corpses to the total. The formula is simple, too: Leftists+Sufficient Power=Dropped Mask and Mass Murder.

Onwards, to one of Proggy’s go-to tools.

The bodies in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton were still in the morgue when the progressive “carrion-picking crows” started politicizing the murders. But everything they said about gun control, “white nationalism,” and Trump’s culpability was based on lies and stale clichés recycled for political gain.

The argument that more gun control laws will lessen substantially such murders has been disproven with facts over and over. In the Nineties, gun homicides fell by half, even as the number of guns increased 56%. The reason has been obvious since Prohibition in the Twenties: if enough people want something, black markets and criminal gangs will exist to get it for them. We’ve spent about a trillion dollars on reducing the availability of drugs, yet any savvy teenager in America can get just about any drug in less than a day. Likewise, someone bent on mayhem can circumvent the most stringent gun control laws. Just look at the crime rate in Democrat-controlled cities like Chicago, D.C., or Baltimore. They have some of the most restrictions on guns, and some of the highest murder rates.

Yet after the El Paso massacre, Democrat primary candidate Amy Klobuchar, a “moderate” only by comparison to her hard-left rivals, wrote, “The U.S. House has passed common sense gun safety legislation. It is long past time to pass it in the Senate. The question to ask: Whose side are you on? The NRA’s or the people’s?”

With an estimated membership of somewhere between five and ten million, the NRA IS the people, or a considerable percentage of ’em anyway.

“Beto” O’Rourke decried “lax gun laws,”

What, all 20-some-odd-thousand of ’em are lax?

Bernie Sanders called for “common-sense gun safety legislation,”

What, 20-some-odd-thousand of ’em ain’t enough to do the trick?

and Kamala Harris vowed during her first 100 days as president to block the import of “assault rifles”.

Which have been banned and/or strictly regulated since 1934, actually, depending on which specific type of weapon you’re talking about.

These empty statements have become anti-gun-nut mantras designed to exploit the suffering of the victims and the ghoulish spectacle of the crimes.

Precisely—and disgustingly—so. Thornton goes on to debunk many, many more related Lefty lies before winding things up:

We know that these comments and reactions are all about the Democrat primary and  terminal Trump Derangement Syndrome. If we had a consistent principle about rhetoric causing crimes, then the Democrats would have condemned Black Lives Matter for the policemen assassinated in Dallas and Brooklyn, or Bernie Sanders for the shooting of Republican Congressmen by one of his supporters. They would have called for proscribing sermons in mosques that include verses from the Koran and Hadiths, which jihadists have told us repeatedly inspire their terrorist murder of infidels. The fact is, millions and millions of people hear hateful speech but don’t go out and massacre innocent people.

Finally, the Democrats’ habit of using mass shootings as fodder for their partisan political message is despicable. If they really cared about crimes against “people of color,” they would have long ago been talking about the violence of blacks against black people in the cities they run. It’s shocking moral idiocy that a party continually harping on “racism” ignores the fact that more blacks are murdered in one year than were killed in the whole history of racist violence from Reconstruction to the Civil Rights Act.

Despicable as it most definitely is, it’s not “moral idiocy,” I’m afraid. It’s something much worse: moral depravity, calculated and cynical. Worse still: it’s a loathsome, poisonous hellbrew of dishonesty, megalomania, and shameless expediency, in brazen defiance of every human impulse towards decency and compassion.

  1. Stop letting them control the language. They’re NOT “anti-gun” They’re “Pro-tyranny”. Never forget what this is really about to them, it’s about being able to victimize the defenseless. Don’t believe it? Well then, explain their rabid love of abortion as a “right”…. It don’t get more defenseless than that. Now, extrapolate that on out to a full grown being who they can victimize in a myriad of ways, up to and including killing those lacking the tools to defend themselves…. This all ends one way, sadly. I’m perfectly fine with live and let live but my take matters not, when THEY can’t abide by it. It’s grown to a monstrous us or them proposition and buddy, I’m here to tell you, in my world, it’ll be them.

  2. All Kamala, Bernie, Beto and the rest want is ONE more law passed…the one totally banning civilian ownership of firearms.
    All of them are obviously crazy…I’d red flag the whole bunch.

  3. I no longer believe that it is possible to avert civil war, because we cannot coexist with them and they refuse to coexist with us.
