“Progressivism” in two tweets

Arrogant, elitist bullies. That about sums up the political philosophy of “progressivism” and a fair fraction of that ideology’s adherents. I know a lot of progs, and I’m sure many of them would deny being bullies. They certainly don’t deny seeing themselves as superior (woke in their lingo), manifestly smarter and more sophisticated than the rest of us (i.e., deplorables), and oh so committed to Diversity, Inclusion, and Tolerance. But bullies? Oh, no – how could someone who preaches incessantly and sincerely about tolerance and equality and justice and cries real tears for the less fortunate possibly be a bully?

The defining essence of the bully is the desire for power and control. Ultimately, the rationale for power seeking, as well as the outcome, does not matter. When bullies encounter a perceived inferior, they go on the attack. It is their nature.  They will threaten, shame, censor, cancel, and mob anything and anyone that flinches or shows any other weakness, without pause or mercy, which is why the worst thing you can ever do to a prog is to apologize.

But another defining characteristic of a bully is grudging respect for, if not outright fear of, the bully that is even more powerful. The same smug thug that will hound a weaker person or group to Hell and back will cower before a more powerful one, tail tucked tightly between its legs.

This brief example from Twitter suffices to convey the essence of the “progressive” bully:

Mosques too?

Of course, Bergsma’s question is rhetorical. The obvious answer is NO. While Christians might turn that proverbial cheek, thereby validating the bully’s power and superiority, the progs know that Islam is the more powerful bully, at least for now.

We can learn from Islam, and China, and other bullies the progs won’t mob. Don’t turn cheeks. They need to be scared of us.  And, much more importantly, they need to know we know they’re scared.

    I hope someone asks about this to Beto. Who knew how racist and Islamophobic he was? 😉

    Beto won’t answer.  He can’t answer.  He’ll dodge and weave, lie and deceive, babble and stall, stumble and fall. He’ll blame you, your mother, your privilege, your wealth, your implicit bias.  He’ll blame Trump and Bush, our racist founders, conspiracy theorists, and people with guns.  And with a compliant media covering for him, he’ll get away with it, too.

    So what if you manage to tie Beto down (not easy to do with a furry), and compel him to consider the question, “Mosques too?”.  It’s a waste of time.  It will not compute.  His internal program (beto.exe) will abend and he will blue screen.  Then he will reboot, eat some dirt, and go on his merry way.

  2. Heeheehee!  You’da thunk Progressivism woulda been the death of multiculturalism.  I mean, take just one aspect of it: feminism.  Ladies, if you can vote, drive a car, and walk alone on a city street: thank Western Civ!

    But the Left is incurably Romantic and REGRESSIVE (yes, I said it, Ive been thinking about it all night and I know it’s true,)   They’re like T.E. Lawrence pretending (by many accounts) to translate for that Arab prince in his spotless white robes (who undoubtedly  had a buncha bloodstained ones  back in the closet of his fief)
    Do they think WE are “Chauvinistic”, about Enlightenment ideals?   THEY’RE so besotted they project  those ideals onto the bloodiest, most  misogynistic, least tolerant throwbacks still extant on our planet.

    America,  honey!  You awake yet?

    According to this link, the beto.exe program was in fact compelled to face the logical consequence of his boneheaded braggadocio, that “his plan to remove tax exempt status from those religious institutions that don’t officially recognize same-sex marriage would apply to mosques, historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), and predominantly black churches”.  His Intel 80286 processor with 640 K RAM (apparently, no Democratic candidate requires more) churned about for a bit, realized his self-own, and conjured up a clownish word salad.  Then he puffed his chest and huffed his cheeks and proclaimed that hell yes he’s going to take our AR-15s.

    I simply have to get an AR-15. After all, I don’t want to miss out on the fun of seeing beto.exe trying to take it.

    He gives new meaning to Blue Screen of Death, Cyr.
