I want to point out a comment that many of you missed. The essence of Communism is arrogance towards people who are their betters. Many of you took part in the discussion of AIDS on a global level. Most of us across the political spectrum want to reduce suffering. The key difference is on personal responsability and its role in the illness. I personally am somewhat fed up with the notion of AIDS patients as saintly victims. The vast majority of AIDS patients contribute to their own demise. The same people who hector us about AIDS have zero sympathy for smokers and alcoholics who contribute to their own demise.
In the conversation the Duck pointed out a need to control the religious people. No doubt if we had made any similar comments about needing to control Muslims the Duck would be talking non stop. The comment that the Duck made illustrates the arrogance that typifies Commies. Commies feel that they hold the sacred divine wisdom. As possesors of this divine wisdom they alone know what is best for the unwashed masses.
The logical progression of this arrogance is gulags, class genocide and theft. This theft is perpetrated by a self absorbed deluded elite. The Duck has praised Cuban Health care. This Health Care also placed gays in mental institutions, Aids patients
in Gulag lite and used labotomies as a treatment decades after it was stopped in the West. Moreover, when Castro needed medical care he called in for Spanish doctors.
Most of the hard left types are mental health rejects. A Joooo obsession is common amongst the most disturbed members. Uptown Steve seems to think dem Jooooos controlled the Slave trade. He dismisses the overwhelming role of Muslims and other Blacks with a fantasy of dem Jooooooos running a world wide phenomena. The Duck frequently goes off the deep end accusing me of trying to cover up the Ukranian famine. Why an anti Communist would cover up a communist crime his own family lived throgh is incoherent. Even a discussion of Renoir, becomes a long winded diatribe about dem Joooos and art. We also have the 9-11 conspiracy freaks John Brown and Weazie. His stock line to a poster he ham handedly attempted to flirt with was " you would be a good person if you just changed your views on Israel". Brown is the Progressive friend to all drug dealers.Hugo, Hezbollah, Taliban, FARC and many other Commie vermin just so happen to be linked to drug dealers. Lets rail about the plantation and Vanilla Sam while hailing drug dealers ,not.
The truth is there are far left types who are sincere. They do not go around spouting insane conspiracy theories and idiotic slogans. Moreover, they are not consumed with irrational bigotries such as mindless anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism. However, the problem these far left types have is many that claim to be their bretheren are seriously mentally ill.
Normal people do not run around spouting idiocy such as Holocaust denial, 9-11 conspiracy idiocy, fake moonlandings, Princess Di conspiracy idiocy and so forth.
This is the work of seriously unhinged and deranged people. Conspiracy clowns are deranged people that take an irrelevant fact and add their own bigotry, usually against Joooos with code names thrown in for good measure.
I am always amused when a far left type seems to point the finger of bigotry at Christians and Joooos. One can read actual hate eminating from Mosques translated by Memri. My favorite quote was from the Disturbed Chemist who calls Americans in the USA chanting USA USA USA hate speech. He ignored the blatant anti-semitism by his far left peers who disrupted a meeting by screaming at Jewish American writer Lee Kaplan "you are a Mossad agent".
The truth is almost every time I hear an anti-semite I scratch and there is the stench of Marx. Everytime I hear someone talking about inane conspiracies I scratch and the stench of Marx again fills the air. There are some absurd nuts in the NOI and KKK that also spout this idiocy bgut they are few and far between. I have been to many Churches of various denominations and have never heard a single anti-semitic vowel. I have seen plenty of anti-semites on college campuses. Maybe Borat should visit Columbia and talk with the faculty in the ME studies department. Then Borat can go speak to Prof Leonard Jeffries and visit the New School for Communist Treason
and NYU. Why is melanin theory in American Universities anyway?
There are decent people who are on the left but the difference is tone. I can disagree with some over the merrits of the death penalty and abortion and recognize the validity in the opposition. Do note I admire India despite the abomination of gender abortion. Now if I were to rail about every single aspect of Indian history
and society it would be another story. The Duck has the need to praise every enemy of America. Sharia is worse than Jim Crow, but the Duck will make excuses for placing Jim Crow (Sharia) on Jews, Christians and others. The practice of Jim Crow is evil only in an American context. Colonialism is evil in a Western context, but does not exist in an Islamic context. Minorities like Bat Yeor, Bridgitte Gabriel, Fred Isaac have no right to tell their version of history, because they are hostile to Islam. The Duck views the work of Communist interlopers Fanon and Chomsky as less
Scratch a Commie smell the mental illness.
