THE LEFT IS remarkably talented at stealing and misusing nice words. The most egregious example of this is how they have convinced almost everyone to refer to them as “liberals,” something they decidedly are not.
This Prager U video does excellent work in showing the actual chasm between Western leftists and bona fide liberals. Leftists are not “progressive” either, but they have also convinced almost everyone that they are.
Many of the Prager U videos have been banned from YouTube, which is owned by Google, which is run by bogus liberals, i.e. leftists. Real liberals oppose censorship. Bogus liberals embrace it with a vengeance. Sad.
PRAGER UNIVERSITY — PragerU as it’s called — is not a brick-and-mortar institution that offers degrees and such. It’s a media organization best known for its five-minute videos on what should be, but often is not, common-sense issues.
The outfit’s driving force is Dennis Prager who, during the 1990s, had a syndicated television show that I loved to watch when I lived in Houston, Texas. Prager is smart, articulate and entertaining. And he’s a very conservative Jew, so much so that he occasionally gets into controversy with his strict religious notions.
I ignore most of those notions because I really like the videos you find on PragerU’s YouTube channel. YouTube is less enthusiastic and does its best to silence him when possible. He’s currently involved, I believe, in legal action against YouTube’s censorship.
Let’s wish him all the luck.
The above video is a good example of PragerU’s common sense. Democrat “progressives” (insert chortle) advocate plenty of cultural lunacy these days, and one example is that there are oh-so-many sexes. Pick one that you feel is a good fit. Slip it on!
No, really. Don’t laugh. It’s true! They actually think that. And they’ll pound you into the dirt, figuratively or literally, if you say otherwise.
Sane people will tell you there are two sexes, but I maintain there are three. Male, female and deranged. And you cannot choose. The universe deposits you into one of the three categories. It’s out of your hands. With luck, you’re not in the third.
I landed in the first, but the second is pretty sweet too.
YOU MAY BE familiar with the very funny, parody videos on YouTube over the past few months, featuring a cute 8-year-old named Ava Martinez who mimicked the clueless, young congresswoman widely known as AOC.
Ava’s channel was known as Mini AOC, and her stepfather and uncle were the adult supervisors of the fun channel. Ava was even interviewed on national TV.
She aspires to being an actress.
The channel has been closed and all work deleted. Why? Because leftists have doxxed and threatened Ava and her family, including death threats on the family’s phone.
As Dennis Prager has repeatedly stated, the left ruins everything it touches. These are people who vote for today’s Democrat Party, the people who preach tolerance, inclusion, fight “racism,” think there are more than two sexes and praise diversity.
Too many of them, however, are simply thugs.
Meanwhile, in other leftist lunacy, Nike has withdrawn tennis shoes that sported the American flag because Colin Kaepernick took offense. Below is the shoe that Kaepernick wants to wear. And Nike pays attention to this doofus.
Last week a reporter covering the Democrat debates overhead a member of the audience say out loud: I don’t think I’m a Democrat anymore. I had that same revelation in 2008.
May you have it soon, if you haven’t already. MAGA!
THE INTERNET is a vital element of our lives, and it affects the way we think in a major way.
As most everyone knows, mega-businesses like Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube (owned by Google), LinkedIn and many more embrace the ideology of the radical left. And they use their stunningly wide reach to indoctrinate nonsense and censor while simultaneously enriching themselves.
They are smart people. The left is far smarter than the right, which is often boneheadedly stupid and walks straight into the clutches of the left.
Since leftists control academia, much of business, all of entertainment and, of course, the internet,* they directly or indirectly influence the thought processes of everyone, even conservatives who should know better.
I think we’re looking at a sort of Stockholm Syndrome. I’ll assume you know what this is. If not, click on the link.
How else to explain the conservatives’ blind spots on vital issues.
Conservatives, with some exceptions (me being one), persist in referring to leftists as “liberals” and “progressives,” which is arrant nonsense. I am fond of Dennis Prager’s quote: The usurpation of the word “liberal” by the left has been a catastrophe. Even conservative firebrands like Ann Coulter often refer to leftists as liberals and progressives. Shame on her.
Conservative news websites such as Breitbart, The Washington Times, The Daily Caller, Ben Shapiro’s The Daily Wire, well, pretty much everyone, place links on their sites to “share” on Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, etc. Even though there are numerous, new, conservative alternatives to those public-relations mouthpieces for the Democrat Party, the conservative sites snooze in the leftists’ beds and plug them daily. Shameful.
I’m guessing that you too suffer from Stockholm Syndrome, internet-style. I would wager my wages that you have a Facebook account, probably Twitter too. You know they are evil, but you cannot pull yourself away because your friends are there, your “friends” too. And all those cute videos of puppies.
Oh, the flowers and recipes!
You know that if you switch to up-and-coming alternatives, especially those devoted to free speech and that don’t sell your data, and you invite your friends to follow you there that they will not. They cannot. They’re caught in Stockholm.
The Masters of the Universe, as the leftist social media are accurately labeled, maintain that position due to the massive number of accounts they possess and profit from. If one of those accounts is yours, you reside in snowy Stockholm.
Like it or not, know it or not, there is a war under way. The violence level currently is low, but it will escalate. When the war is done, and we are victorious as we will be, there will be consequences.
At best, you will be paraded through the streets with your head shaved. At worst, you will be shot. Avoid this. Free yourself. Choose a side.
Don’t be a collaborator.
