#1 The Left comes across like the deranged spouse or suitor. You know the type. "If I can't have him/her, then no one can have 'em." First its stalking. Then its threatening words and gestures. Then they off the other party. Of course everyone else watches but does nothing other than urge the object of the party's murderous attention to get a piece of legal paper which does really nothing but gives the appearence that you are doing something.

#2 Remarkable article. Absolute clarity. Thank you, SR-71 - I will share this with everyone I know - even the Lefty fools with whom I maintain tenuous relations. This ought to end that waste of time, LOL.

"The West’s greatest threat is neither Islam nor any other external foe. It is its own political Left. All the great ills and woes under which our civilization so agonizingly belabors – and under the weight of which it is slowly sinking – have been either brought on or inflamed by it.

By corroding the West’s moral, spiritual, economic and cultural foundation, the Left has wrought incalculable damage on our civilization. The fact that this assault has come from within makes it all the more astounding. The Left is a wholly western child, born and raised within its confines. It is as though the Left somehow embodies the West’s reaction against the West. It is as though under some suicidal impulse the West has turned against itself with a self-destructive intent."

Our most dangerous enemy lies within.

#3 An excellent article that I recommend reading.

This really jumped out at me:

At first glance, this may appear too sweeping a thesis to account for all the complexities of political reality, but there a simple way to test its validity. To prove it incorrect all you need to do is to come up with one counter-example, one single instance from among the Left’s campaigns and advocacies which is not in some way injurious to western civilization. Try as hard as you may, you will not be able to do it.

The Left never errs – it always acts against the West. It never stands or fights for anything that may be good for the western world. It can’t, because it is a reaction against it. Opposition to the West is the very reason for its existence; it is its nature. A wolf can’t act like a hare or a lion like an antelope. The Left can never become the West’s friend, because antipathy towards it actuates its heart and infuses its soul.

I comment at my website further on this. In the meantime, great article! Recommended.

#4 A while back Wretchard at Belmont Club had a thread called "The Ichneumon Wasp" which dealt with this parasitic nature of the left.

Get into a discussion with a leftist and see how ignorant they often are of their own history. Often times they believe that they somehow represent the "real" America, but watch their anger when you recall the history of their development as having derived from the French, not American, revolution, and that the American tradition of the Enlightenment is entirely different from and has never included the left (well, until the '30's), and name for true the historical fact that their family tree includes both fascism and communism. Their heads explode.

This past summer I had a guy tell me that big-government socialism was a deeply American tradition that went back to the Founding Fathers. When I asked for proof that it even existed here before 1932, he shook his head, swore at me, and stormed off. Watta maroon. But a typical maroon.

I used to think the left was a cancer. A better analogy is that they are more like a herpes infection - one which can be beaten back by the immune system of the West but which pops up in times of stress.

Either way, they are a disease which would be best eliminated entirely.

#5 What never ceases to amaze me, is that if the Islamofascists win, the leftists would be the first up against the wall.

#6 We'll never be rid of the left. You try convincing a million ignorant poor people that it's a bad idea to steal money from successful people to keep their sorry asses alive.

#7 Give the ignorant poor people a shot at moving up the economic ladder and most of them will work their ass off to do so. The poor form a power block for the left only as long as there's either no chance economic mobility, or as long as the leaders of the left can convince them that's the case.

#8 During WW2, Korea, and aspects of Vietnam it was called the "Banzai/Human Wave" attack, "hugging the belt/waist", and "attacking where American-Western-UN forces were NOT". IN the WOT, organz traditional linear combat has given sway to nuclear/WMD-potential "People's War", aka form of Asymmetric Warfare, and "franchising", i.e. form of post-modern inter-State tech transfer and proliferation where one state does the silent designing or testing of weapons for another nation. Whatever the intellectuals call it nowadays, in the end it still comes down to the USA running out of beans and bullets before the enemy runs out of bodies. As for the US Left, they'll be amongst the first up against the wall to be executed whether its the Radical Muslims or Secular Commies. The only thing both Spetzies and Comies have to lose are the Milyuhns and Zilyuhns Socialism can't take care of, and Radical Islam and its Mullahs won't care for, anyways, so might as well lose 'em defeating America and the West.
