Upset Liberal Media Cry Babies
The Totalitarian American Left

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The left is becoming more unapologetically totalitarian every day. Every freedom-loving American should be alarmed.

From hounding conservatives out of restaurants to spitting on Trump supporters at rallies, from firing employees for politically incorrect statements to fining people for “misgendering” a person, the left is on a path toward absolutism.

Even some former and current leftists have recognized this intolerant trend and broken from their colleagues, lamenting their intolerance of opposing ideas and disturbing mission to suppress dissenting opinion.

Just the other day, three incidents typifying the left's authoritarianism popped out at me as I was surveying the morning news.

The Federalist reported that venues in three North American cities — Toronto, Brooklyn and Portland — canceled screenings of a movie about Canadian psychologist and author Jordan Peterson because of leftist criticism. Peterson exploded onto the scene in recent years with his no-nonsense, brilliant and clear-eyed critique of insane cultural trends, especially those concerning gender.

Peterson's book “12 Rules for Life” is wildly popular, and there are countless viral videos featuring his encounters with various leftist interviewers, panelists and audience members who have tried and failed to entrap him on a number of issues, and been reduced — in every case — to blundering, ineffectual bullies. If you haven't partaken of these videos, you owe it to yourself to witness one arrogant leftist after another being gobsmacked by the simple weapon of unadulterated logic. These videos are irresistibly contagious and imminently satisfying for those longing to see intellectually defenseless, virtue-signaling finger waggers brought to their knees through the medium of polite debate.

Peterson, you see, won't kowtow to the leftists' demand that we embrace the tenets of gender ideology, which teaches that gender is less about biology and more about personal identification. He refuses to support laws that criminalize one's failure to use a person's preferred pronouns, such as “they” instead of “she.”

Peterson has the temerity to say that men and women are biologically different, and that gender is not a fluid, human construct. That doesn't sit well with the left, who not only insists that we accept its cockeyed ideas as normal but also advocates imposing them on us by force of law.

Can you get your mind around the irony of the left banning a movie about Peterson because he's dangerous? Who is more dangerous: a person who peaceably expresses an opinion that happens to be supported by thousands of years of human experience and common sense, or those who try to ban his voice or even a movie about it? This is “1984”-level scary, and it's getting worse by the hour.

On what possible grounds is the left arguing that Peterson's views are dangerous? He doesn't advocate violence; he isn't a rabble-rouser or revolutionary. He simply states his opinion instead of genuflecting to the despotic left.

But they claim that if Peterson's views are openly expressed, he might convince other people that he's right, and that could lead to the proliferation of conservative thought. Peterson's “conservative perspectives on feminism and gender,” according to an opinion piece in The New York Times, “are very popular among young men and often are a path to more extreme content and ideologies.” Think about this. Conservative speech is dangerous because it is a slippery slope to the adoption of conservative ideas? This must be satire. Do these clueless cranks know how ridiculous they sound?

Again, who is more extreme and dangerous: Jordan Peterson, who advocates the silencing of no one and expresses mainstream opinions, or leftists, who are actively trying to censor Peterson?

Please don't make the reckless mistake of dismissing this crusade against Peterson as exceptional. This is the left's pattern, and it is becoming more aggressive all the time.
The second and third incidents I came across are further proof that the left is increasingly Stalinist. In the most recent Democratic presidential debate, Sen. Kamala Harris pushed for the suspension of President Trump's Twitter, speciously alleging that he is trying to obstruct justice and intimidate and threaten witnesses. You see, the left always has some urgent rationale to smother conservative speech — whether it's to prevent the incitement of violence or obstruction of justice. But it just wants to shut us up.

Those who would silence the other side are the very definition of dangerous. Don't take Harris' musings lightly, even if she is mostly posturing to gin up more support from the Trump-hating Democratic base. It is instructive that efforts to muzzle speech almost always come from the left, not the right, because the left is insecure about the popularity of its kooky ideas.

The third incident involved demagogue and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who said in a CNN forum on LGBT issues that churches and religious organizations should lose their tax-exempt status if they oppose same-sex marriage. If I have to explain how outrageous this is, the country is in even greater danger than I imagined.

I found these examples in 15 minutes of reading this week. They are everywhere. America was founded on the idea of claiming and preserving our God-given liberties. The illiberal left, which believes our rights and freedoms come from government, is hell-bent on destroying our liberties and forcibly imposing its thoughts and ideas on all of us.
God save us.

It is amazing that these people can ignore God and the principles this nation was founded and succeeded on. They will pay in the end as we all have an end to this life. There must be three genders, he, she and it.

@tomcat,a few weeks back, Shotgun Joe Biden was asked how many different genders there were by a little kid. He response was,..”at least three”. The kid asked the moron to name them and Biden said, ..”shut up kid,leave me alone” ! These fools say their shit,but never want to be questioned about their idiotic responses.

Yes, Judgment will be based on the truth. At that time, no one will be able to say “But I had really good reasons! I was trying to help!”

I can quote the scripture I am referencing if you like. Hope you are feeling better today.

The left has taken over the public school systems nationally. And by doing so have indoctrinated children to believe everything they want them to believe. Now we have leftists who are outdoing their teacher at PC and even going deeper into the pit of socialism/communism with the known end of the nation that has done everything far better than the S/C crowd could or even has any desire to do. The only success they seek is to destroy the nation that could ever give them what they want, but, they would have to do what they really don’t want to… Read more »

@Vern I applaud you for at least having courage enough to stand up and voice a well thought out argument here, both times. The question I sought to ask though was on Hypocrisy. If you have someone who plays tyrant on the right, and another who plays tyrant on the left, is one really better than the other when both are as you put it “ram their ideology down peoples throats or they simply do away with people who don’t conform to their radical temporary ideology.”? We currently have a lot of very upset irritated people here who don’t like… Read more »

Here is an answer for you Revelator. Under our Constitution we all have freedom of speech and ideas. When those on the “right” espouse the same rhetoric as those on the left, that is a very clear indication they are not on the “right”. When those left wing “liberals” pose a real threat to our Constitution and indeed, our Western culture, economy, sovereignty and freedom, then we are duty bound to stop them by any means necessary. At the point which we find ourselves now it has ceased to be an argument of ideas and has become a war of… Read more »

@MARK 2nd YES!!!! Thank you!! More than one person able to form an argument. While I don’t agree with the final sentence, at least you were able to articulate it without trying to ostracize your opponent via ad hominem. The reference to tyrants and tyranny was not directed at Donald Trump. I know you didn’t mention him, but I want to make a clear distinction here. Rather it is some who follow him. I fully believe Trump made an accurate assessment when he stated he “Could murder someone in broad daylight on 5th avenue and his people would still vote… Read more »

Revelator, I’m going to fight in all ways that I can. By voting or by any “other” means necessary. President Trump may not be 100% what we Constitutionalists want, but at this point he’s our best hope to hold on to what Constitutional freedoms we still have and perhaps gain back what some of what we’ve lost. The alternative is certainly war as no so called “Democrat” (read communist) is going to honor our Constitutional rights at all. I train for the latter on a regular basis and I am willing to die for freedom. As it has been said… Read more »

@Mark 2nd I like the Washington quote you worked in there, its one of my favorites. I will never tell someone they cannot exercise their right to vote, that is the difference between people such as Will and myself. The problem I see with Trump, as stated, is his die hard supporters who feel he can do no wrong. The threat is that Trump will do enough damage to the second amendment to weaken it. For example, his unconstitutional acts on bumpstocks, and his nominating anti second amendment appointees who can do damage while they are in office. Right now,… Read more »

Bozo is dangerous. He is a cancer on the face of American society. Anyone who votes for him or supports his ideas are delusional. Trump/Pence on 2020. There is no other REASONABLE alternative.

@JFCrosby
Except it’s not an either or. Those who can’t vote for either may not go out. That does not mean they support the idiots being put up by the left.

I want to ask you honestly, would you support forcing people to violate their right of conscience, right of association, and right of free speech to pick one candidate or the other? I’m hoping you will explain what you feel as reasonable, since that is how you are judging this.

@JFCrosby,President Trump will easily destroy whatever socialist they ultimately nominate. The main thing is to go out and vote. Bucktooth Beto is still polling around 1%. Vote Trump/Pence 2020 !

10 days later, Ironic and somewhat appropriate for the season mirror voting just prior to Halloween.

10/29/2019, and as of 6:33PM the vote is exactly -24 to 24, almost as if to show how perfectly fraudulent the whole up down vote is. 😛

(Pssss…. For the silent trolls doing this because they don’t have the balls to debate me, yes I am messing with you. 🙂 I’m still laughing. Happy Halloween.)

This is really getting fun. Since Ammoland limits one vote per profile on a comment, it’s very interesting that every single one of my comments here seems to have a mirrored vote to it from where it was. It’s almost as if someone was using multiple profiles and just pinging my comments out of anger and frustration. 🙂 lol

Yes, it is very odd, especially since you are getting far more negatives than those that are getting positives – clearly skewed and directed strictly at you. And the perpetrator does not have the strength of character to identify him/herself. A weak-minded person resorting to childish behavior, how unusual (sarcasm intended).

The idiot called percolator or whatever is out of its mind. He thinks non-voting is a form of voting,total bullshit ! He won’t vote for President Trump in ‘20 because his sissy,snowflake,traitor feelings got hurt. He would prefer one of the socialists win the election ! ‘Nuff said !

@Will So do you support Trumps Actions to infringe on the Second Amendment? Do you support his nominations who are not second amendment supporters like Barr and Canterbury? If he gets a Second Term and Signs in a Republican authored Red Flag bill are you willing to accept responsibility for that? These are questions you cannot honestly answer. And yet because your feelings are so hurt that someone would vote “None of the above” while not demanding anyone else give up the right to decide for themselves, you want to call them snowflakes when you were the one who was… Read more »

Thank you for showing everyone here how unhinged you are. How I got so deeply under your skin and intimidated you by being independent that you cannot even control your emotions on a comment. That the idea someone else’s comment can frighten you into having to demand submission from everyone else on ammoland, as if voting for Trump is a cult.

Congratulations.

Ladies and Gentlemen. Does anyone who claims to be on the Right here support the idea of tyranny, dictating another American citizens rights? One stands in your midst, @Will. A week ago he became unhinged. He got caught in a hypocritical position, contradicted himself 5 days later, openly lied about it and denied the flip flop, and has since been obsessed with following me around here. He has attacked anyone who exercises a free speech right to make their own decisions for themselves while not demanding anyone do the same as they have chosen. Yet never does he have enough… Read more »

Those who support liberty aren’t doing everything they can to change this country into a tyrannical socialist/communist country. Those who support liberty aren’t working on implementing red flag laws that favor disarming the law abiding citizen while exempting the criminals and gangs. Those who love liberty are those who change the flaws through working things out for perfection, not that we are perfect, which has brought this country a long ways forward the best humans can do. Those who love tyranny can’t wait for the best of humanity, they have to ram their ideology down peoples throats or they simply… Read more »

Trumps election victory in 2020 will easily be by the largest landslide in US history. People know,real Patriots know,that by not voting or voting for one of the socialists scumbags,is not an option. The pissants on the left know Trump can’t be beat at the ballot box,so now their impeachment bullshit ! Won’t work ! TRUMP 2020 !

@Will
So you decide a person’s patriotism by whether or not the do things according to what you want or approve of?

It does not cease to amaze me how much of a threat you find people exercising their own right of association or freedom of thought to be. If you were so sure of a Trump Victory, you wouldn’t need to try and shame others into silence or blind obedience, you’d just chuckle and move on.

All infringements on the constitution are illegal. There is a process to follow that is being ignored right now. The truth of the matter is that the left is becoming unhinged, even as they try to point to Constitutionalists who will not comply with their demands as egging on a civil war. I will go to war to defend my rights, but that means there must be someone coming for them, someone who might say “Hell yes! We are coming for your guns. We are going to take your AR-15’s, your AK-47’s.” It is from those on the left that… Read more »

And when others want to join in or say something, you feel the urge to try and correct them in the hopes ostracizing me will silence me? So here it is.

@ Rev. I never paid much attention to this thumbs up or down stuff until you brought it up. You are right though, there is only one vote per customer so I am having trouble figuring out why or where these negative thumbs are coming from. I don’t agree with your principal of not voting but it isn’t worth a thumbs down because you explain your position, and do it very eloquently. (Maybe they don’t understand the big words).

Most amusingly, there are never 46 people posting to these comment sections, so as you pointed out, it is clearly a personal vendetta, as if down-voting proves the statement is invalid. If the statement was truly invalid, a rational, logical argument could and would be made against it. Obviously that has not happened.
