The Lunatic Left On Full Display

Feb 2, 2020

The loony left can’t get any worse – can it?

Sometimes you just gotta ask: have secular leftists gone completely mad, or are they just plain evil? Sadly, it seems that far too many of them are both. How else do you explain all the diabolically delusional stuff they keep running with?

All over the West we find whacky and wicked policies and proposals by these folks, but here I want to focus on the scene in America. There we have some major players running with all this, chief among them being the Democrats and their sycophantic supporters in the mainstream media.

As I have written before, the Democrats are working overtime to position themselves as the most far-left political party around, even giving the Communist Party USA a good run for its money. Every day we hear about some new outrageous and idiotic proposal being made by one of the contenders for the Party’s nomination to run against Trump.

Most of these guys and gals are seeking to outdo one another in how bizarre and hyper-left they can go. Of course all of this is good news for the Republicans: they can just sit back and watch the Dems self-destruct with all this madness and recklessness. Their best campaign ads will be to just replay what these Dems have said.

Indeed, a few months ago I wrote a piece examining “the 7 most idiotic proposals made by Democrat contenders”. They are still being promoted: reparations, not just to blacks but to homosexuals; healthcare for illegal immigrants; trans abortion rights; free education for all; lower the voting age; abolish ICE; and felons should be able to vote in prison. billmuehlenberg.com/2019/08/03/the-7-most-idiotic-proposals-by-democrat-contenders/

More can be added, such as abolishing the electoral college and waiving all student loan debts. This Party really is like the state of California: a place full of fruits and nuts. But their madness keeps on coming. Let me look at just a few more of their lunatic proposals and pronouncements.

First we have this from one of the front runners, Joe Biden. He has said that ‘transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time’. Oh really? A civil rights issue? And the most important one? When mixed up children are being messed up by adults with activist agendas, the real issue is how to stop this child abuse, not to further enable it.

Thankfully many other folks were also appalled at Biden’s foolishness. Consider the words of ex-transgender James Shupe, America’s first legally “non-binary” person. I have written up his story elsewhere: billmuehlenberg.com/2019/09/23/the-new-invisible-people-those-with-trans-regret/

He tweeted this about the impact of Biden’s proposal: “Men in women’s bathrooms with little girls. Males winning 1st place in female sports. Males in women’s homeless shelters. Male predators being placed in female prisons based on ‘feelings’ of being a woman. And Biden calls it the civil rights issue of our time. Women do you agree?”

And children’s rights activist Katy Faust said this: “Let’s be clear, children’s rights to their mother & father is the civil rights issue of our time. Failing to defend this basic human right [equals] commodifying children & giving them to any adult with the money/means to acquire them. Didn’t we fight a Civil War to end that practice?” www.lifesitenews.com/news/joe-biden-transgender-equality-is-the-civil-rights-issue-of-our-time

Exhibit B is yet another bizarre remark made by Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren. She too has hopped on board the trans train. She recently said that she wants a young trans person to interview and approve her Education Secretary pick. I kid you not. She said:

It starts with the Secretary of Education, who has a lot to do with where we spend our money. I’m going to have a Secretary of Education that this young trans person interviews on my behalf – only if this person believes that our Secretary of Education nominee is committed to creating a welcoming environment, a safe environment, and a full educational curriculum for everyone, will that person be advanced to actually be Secretary of Education. www.foxnews.com/media/elizabeth-warren-young-trans-person

Good grief. Of course this is the same person who vowed that if she is elected president she will fill out at least half of her Cabinet with “women and nonbinary people.” What will she say next: that only trans people should be allowed to vote or hold office? Why doesn’t Warren simply ‘transition’ herself? That way if she does go on to win the top job we will have our first trans Commander in Chief.

My last example has to do with more lamestream media madness, and CNN of course leads the way in this. Consider a recent headline found on their site: “Coronavirus task force another example of Trump administration’s lack of diversity”. Yes they really said that. edition.cnn.com/2020/01/30/politics/donald-trump-coronavirus-diversity-obama/index.html

Wow. These guys have allowed Trump Derangement Syndrome to turn their minds into mush. Forget about qualified medical personnel with years if not decades of training and experience to deal with this potentially catastrophic virus. Let’s be PC instead, and get in more women or more non-Whites or more non-binary types – in the interests of diversity. Forget about the interests of health and safety of the American people.

As Victorian conservative politician Bernie Finn put it in a social media post: “This is an outrage! How dare President Trump seek the advice of doctors and professors of medicine instead of barmaids, school kids and lesbian socialists with two-legged cats? CNN really is the pits!”

Indeed, this is so utterly outrageous that the famous satire site The Babylon Bee did an entire piece on it. The article, entitled “CNN Condemns D-Day Soldiers For Lack Of Diversity,” begins this way:

Everyone was really happy that the Allied forces stopped Hitler. Everyone, that is, except CNN, who published a retrospective on the war this week, zeroing in on the real issue of Operation Overlord: no gay female trans POCs in any of the units. While most people were really grateful that Hitler was defeated, despite the U.S. military’s wider segregation issues at the time, most people are not as woke as CNN, who condemned the entire operation as racist and xenophobic. “Ugh, look at all these cisgendered males,” the CNN opinion piece read. “At some point, you have to ask yourself which is worse: living under Hitler’s regime or getting rescued by straight, white males.” babylonbee.com/news/cnn-criticizes-d-day-soldiers-for-lack-of-diversity

As I said, these guys are either absolutely nuts or absolutely evil – or both. Heaven help America – and the world – if these politicians and their media cronies further consolidate their hold on power.

  • Oops Babylon Bee is a satire site. Not recommended as source material.

  • Thanks Brian. But I of course said that BB is a satire site. I used their satire as I so often do to add a bit of humour, not as source material. And satire works well when it is so close to the truth.

  • Bill,

    Great article, however if we just continue to write about how upset we are and how outlandish all of this crazy evil talk has consumed the progressive socialist left, we are doomed if we just sit at home and be hopelessly angry. I am 71 years old, a disabled Veteran and a retired police officer, never in my life have I seen such stupidity and intellectual immaturity. I love America but I am afraid that it is to late to salvage our Republic. This mess was set off by LBJ but was festering with FDR. All of this was a concern for our founding fathers. Once the people found out there was this sugar daddy lurking in the shadows promising everything for everybody the pioneer spirit was destroyed.

    We are on the “highway to hell”. I care because this opportunity was given to us by God. Not by a nanny government.

    The American Revolution was principally caused by colonial opposition to British attempts to impose greater control over the colonies and to make them repay the crown for its defense of them during the French and Indian War (1754–63).

    I have said time and again the colonist revolted for the same reason we are in this position. America’s beginnings went to war for much less than what is happening now in my country. I am a descend of those brave men, only 3% of the population at the time.
    .
    America is full of spoiled brats, saving the earth has more priority than saving our Republic. I fear not for myself but for my children and grandchildren.

    “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Attributed to Edmund Burke”. “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” Thomas Jefferson. Standing firm in my faith but realizing that there are ways to stop this madness. When the devil comes and he tries to rule your life and you do nothing, you have sinned. When the devil comes to still your freedom and enslave you to a ruthless government, you have failed to defend every right that God has bestowed upon you. When the devil has come to surround you with evil and sin, and you ignore it, you have sinned.

    God has given us the right to defend ourselves. If you are not willing to defend your faith and freedom with force, you have become a slave to a corrupt government and must do what the evil ones tell you to do. We all become prisoners of the devil. The devil than wins!

    We need more than words to fight these monsters and puppets of the devil. 50% of America believes what comes out of the left. Americans will rue the day that they sat there and did nothing to preserve the freedom and free will.

  • I see I must be band! My last three post have not made it to the final count down! Freedom of speech ends here and only one opinion prevails!

  • Um, no, you were not banned Charles – nor were you band. And you had only one comment before this in moderation. It may surprise some people to know that I am a human being, thus I tend to try for a good night’s sleep every day. As such there is no moderation of comments nor anything else going on when I am sleeping. But now that I am up your two recent comments have gone through. So try being a little bit patient thanks and spare us this silliness about the end of free speech!

    And by the way, I for one am NOT just ‘sitting at home and being hopelessly angry’. I am trying to do my God-given best to fight these things and help see them turned around. So I will keep doing what God has called me to do thanks. Those who do not like what I am doing are free to stay away if they get so upset.

    As to self-defence, and if and when a time comes that just revolution is required, I have already penned pieces saying that this can be morally and biblically licit. But I will not encourage people to go around rioting in the streets and/or resorting to senseless violence as the loony left does so often.

  • Babylon Bee D-Day satire puts me in mind of the ideologically addled film reviewers who attacked Dunkirk for not being diverse enough – Nuts.

  • Their hearts have been hardened and they are given over to their appetites. God is destroying them but God’s having a lot of fun using Trump to do it. Not the man but the deed.

  • Great article, well written and true to the last period.

  • Perhaps these people are secretly hoping to land a job at The Babylon Bee!

  • It is sad when satire is so accurate it is hard too identify it as satire.

    You have the Looney tunes logo up I sometimes wish all this was a cartoon then Porky Pig could come out soon an say ‘that’s all folks’ and we could go on with our lives.

  • Great article Bill – and it is helpful that you point out the insanity going on out here. I believe this deluded insanity will bring down the Left in the future because as the leftists display more of their deluded unworkable insanity it just proves how insane they really are. The pushback is already gaining momentum. Again, keep up the good work Bill.
