THE LEFT WILL BE THE RUIN OF US

THE LEFT WILL BE THE RUIN OF US

From  Diana West on Monday, July 02, 2012 10:27 AM

 

Not all that long after the Supremes decimated sovereignty and self-government with knockout-blow-rulings on Arizona and Obamacare, and the State Department issued a visa to a member of Egypt’s Islamic Group, a massive storm knocked out the power and phones of hundreds of thousands of people in the Washington area (me, included).

COINCIDENCE?

“Let’s be clear about the misnomer “liberal,” which implies a political philosophy advocating personal freedom. But self-proclaimed liberals are actually very uncomfortable with the notion of individual freedom. After all, if people are free to make their own choices in life, they will very likely make ones that the left doesn’t agree with; better to have an authoritarian government to step in and make the correct choices for you that you can’t be trusted to make for yourself.”

(“The Totalitarian at the Heart of the Obama Scandals”, Mark Tapson)

READ THIS WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING

“Misopaeda and the Insolence of Gay Monarchy”

Friedrich Hansen (Brussels Journal).

Focus on gay parenting and adoption – but much, much more.  Exhausting and frightening.  Shows up the insolence and the totalitarian mendacity of the Left.

AND THESE

The American Iron Curtain

Daniel Greenfield (FrontPage) The new evil empire is right here.

When Frogs Jump

Daren Jonescu (American Thinker) It may be that any chance of averting the final collapse depends on the continued noisy jumping from within that nearly-boiling pot.

Parasitocracy

Daren Jonescu (American Thinker)

Embracing Leviathan

Andrew McCarthy (NRO) Mainstream GOP accepts the welfare state.

FIRST-ORDER ARTICLES, LINKS ABOUT THE LEFT 

Read.  Digest.  Meditate.  Evangelize.

Good to get a grip on the Left’s ancestry.  Its mothering, its fathering.  Its litter mates.  Its own fornicated spawn. 

Though born (or, at least midwifed) from the Parisian Jacobins, the Left’s dovetailing with Islam (political or otherwise) is striking. 

One must not forget that conference in Baku, in the 1920’s, when Hell’s Gate got smashed – and all that bastard spawn spewed forth.  Why was John Reed so enthused?  Did some whirlwind devil, from centuries past, whisper a certain prophecy?

  • BOOK:  Worshiping  the State: How Liberalism Became our State Religion by Benjamin Wiker
  • OBAMA AGAINST THE CHURCH.  Our other little blog collection regarding the HHS Mandate crisis.  Extraordinary lesson the snaky, smarmy reach of the Left in the politics and our culture.   That collection along with our on the OWS Movement (see “The Three Evils PAGE), scroll to bottom) is a comprehensive school in how to think realistically and righteously.
  • “The Leftist (World) Purification Movement”, Andrew Thomas (American Thinker.)  This is frightening.  In order to prepare – in order to do – we must repent.  Pray to God and Sweet Mary that the Church be not tempted by this movement’s universalism.  Remember, Church, your first duty is towards lost coins and lambs – only the particular reflects the image of God.  (In the Creed we say “I” not “we”.) God is quite jealous of his Particular Affections – especially his first one.

No one grips the Left in a vise like David Solway, maybe for once being one of them.  Anyway, his essays are sharp, double-edge thrust into the heart of the matter.

ON THAT F-UPPED “WALL STREET OCCUPY” MOVEMENT

    • “In Praise of Capitalist Inequality”, Paul Hsieh (PJ Media).  There would be no art, no music, no literature is there was no inequality.  Praise be the Lord Jesus Christ.  There would be no universal salvation without the inequality of God’s particular affections.
    • Vatican calls for universal banking authority (Chiesa).  UTTER RUBBISH. Is the Pope sitting down with the WSOers?  Need to calm down, remind myself this falls under prudent judgment.  REMINDER:  The “peace and justice” cubicle in the curia is riddle with aging ideologues.
      • Samuel Gregg puts a welcome dose of common sense into the ruckus the document has stirred.  Thanks Sam.  Will yield.  Read his piece over – and twice.  Digest.  (National Review Online)
      • “The Pope, Chaplain to WSO?  Rubbish!”, George Weigel (National Review Online).  You’re right, George, but the Vatican does prick the boundaries at times, pulling in the International Left as some extraordinary minister.  Why doesn’t Chiesa make things clear?
      • “On Going the Way of World Government“, Mark Brumley (Catholic World Report)
      • “The Pope Occupies Wall Street”, Ben Shaprio (FrontPage).  Here I am being discouraged again.  Weigel, Gregg, Brumley need to do an exegesis of the second to last paragraph.  Does the “universalist mission” propel the Church to advocate for a universal government, in whatever area or as a totalitarian governing entity?  I am vehemently opposed to the Church in this regard.if this is the case.  Does that make me a bad son?  The Kingdom of God (Christ) does not equal a uni8versal temporal authority.  What do yo9u say Gregg, Weigel, Brumley?
      • “Don’t Confuse the Common Good with Statism”, Michael Novak (First Things). Vatican green-shade cubicle sitter, read this!
      • Roundup of reactions from American Catholic
      • Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow.  The Vatican Cracks Down on the Curia.  The Adults Have Rode Into Vatican Town!

Inclusiveness is thus part of the modern effort to apply the technological outlook comprehensively.

The Progressive Reality Is Here, Brucwe Thornton (FrontPage) How many Americans are ready to accept the sacrifices we have to make to right our fiscal ship?  The Progressive Agenda Crashes into Complexity, J.
