Intimidation, demonization, violence, riots, destruction… These are behaviors that – in the political sense – tend to be indulged in overwhelmingly by the left. Psychologically, the left is incapable of dealing with political setbacks; of simply not getting their way. This despite constantly promoting the virtues of “diversity,” “tolerance,” and “dialogue.”
How many riots, destruction, and violence have we seen before, during and after the inauguration of Barack Obama, especially considering how “racist” Americans are alleged to be?
Isn’t it ironic that it is precisely these things (diversity, tolerance and dialogue) we end up never seeing from them in those moments when those on the left don’t get what they want? Of course, it is really easy to propose the above virtues when you happen to have the power and you want to speak to dissidents as if they are children. It is when you are *not* in power, and you do not get things to go your way for a change, that your true nature comes to the surface. You may not like how things are going; you may be frustrated and angry; you may vow to vote again next time to try and change things; you may even decide not to vote because you think it is pointless.
But when it comes to the “wonderfully” democratic and reasonable acts of verbal bile and hatred, mass demonization, intimidation, vandalism and destruction, riots and violence, and simply basic hypocrisy, there seems to be no one-upping the very segment that spouts their virtues about tolerance, diversity and dialogue: the left. Apparently, it is not so easy to be virtuous when life doesn’t go your way for a change. So for instance, the “anti-war” left was up in arms over Bush, mysteriously vanished under the Democratic president that presided over more wars than any other U.S. president in history, and will now reappear like rabbits if Trump should decide to go military on some country. Or, ironically, actually castigate Trump for NOT going to war with Russia.
Some examples of the progressive virtues of tolerance, diversity and dialogue:
Anti-Trump protester sucker punches Trump supporter in the face.
Violent anti-Trump protesters riot; destroy private property.
P.S. just a few words about violent “anarchists”. They are *not* anarchists. First of all, real anarchists are not violent. Second, real anarchists are against the state. But where are these alleged “anarchists” whenever a Democrat is elected and inaugurated? These people are not anarchists; they are Stalinist commie scum. They have no problem with the state, provided it goes some way to achieving the things these “anarchists” want.
