David Hogg, one of the brats who liberals tell us has moral superiority and is beyond criticism on every issue because he survived a shooting (meanwhile, the Left tells us veterans and victims like with Benghazi have no moral authority and in fact are liars, even going so far as to downplay the terrorist attack or hide it) has started a boycott of Laura Ingraham because she rightly pointed out he is a whiny little baby. Not because of his anti-gun activism, not because he refuses to accept the idea of reinforcing schools rather than violating people’s 2nd Amendment rights (Hogg even came out against teachers being armed, noting that because law enforcement in his area consisted of democrat cowards that teachers would be no different, forgetting, of course, the uncountable times armed police and civilians have stopped shooters, but remember: this is an impudent child) , not because he’s a typical liberal activist (meaning that when he was born, he screamed and waved his fists like everyone else, but unlike everyone else he never stopped), but rather because he is complaining that colleges were rejecting him. Yup, over a small but true insult irrelevant to gun activism, Laura Ingraham lost a double-digit number of sponsors because David Hogg is a spoiled brat that can’t take the least little criticism, which probably explains why he and his fellow babies refuse to debate on gun control and indeed refuse to acknowledge that another side to the issue exists. A side which acknowledges little things like how gun-free London has a higher murder rate than gun-ridden NYC (London has about 3% more people than NYC, but if the Left’s lies about gun control are to be believed then London shouldn’t even have half the murder rate of NYC).
I find it ironic that with the left’s unconditional support for abortion, attempts to dehumanize babies in the womb, and the NY State Attorney General saying that babies in the womb are aggressors and abortion is self-defense, we have the Left parading a bunch of babies in front of us. I’m also gratified to be able to reasonably predict that once the current firestorm over shootings ceases, kids like Hogg will suddenly find their platform yanked out from under them (just ask the DREAMers about being abandoned). Or maybe even find themselves labeled as racists. Given their elementary us vs. them “I’m always right” attitude, maybe they can get a job with Antifa, but don’t expect to get paid on time. At least they have some leftwing activism on their resumes already, pre-shooting, which kind of explains what’s happening now.
By the way- you may have noticed that while the Left is parading the anti-gun students around because it matches their agenda, they’re ignoring or even attacking students or families of victims who are not towing the gun control line. And of David Hogg in particular, let me ask you: how many of you when you were 17 years old regularly used phrases like “living wage“, “white privilege“, and “wrong side of history“? Are you going to argue he’s mature for his age? Intelligent? Remember: he was rejected from a bunch of colleges; that reflects poorly on any argument that he’s mature and intelligent for his age, as does his predilection for profanity. Either the Leftwing activists he’s sided with are handing him scripts, or he’s plagiarizing from Obama speeches.
Before we move on I’ll add a sidebar here- remember how the Left mocked 2nd Amendment advocates (including this NYMag piece that did not date very well) for saying that once they ban guns they’ll go after our knives? How the Left defended knife usage, even noting in defense of knives that people won’t use them in lieu of guns? The mayor of London and other sophisticated Lefties obviously didn’t get the Left’s memo that this was ludicrous and that the slippery-slope argument was an unconvincing fallacy. Or the Left was lying. And remember- America should be more like Europe according to liberals. The same liberals who are caught with loaded handguns which are missing the serial numbers.
To The Matter At Hand – What’s With This Corporate Love Fest?
I have a simple question. Liberals claim to be the anti–corporate (to the point that they object when corporations pay bonuses), anti–millionaire, anti-Wall Street team, right? Then why is it that every time some spoiled brat SJW takes issue with a conservative outlet or group, corporations (who advertise on equivalent or worse liberal programming) bolt from them like cockroaches when the lights are turned on, but then whenever a liberal is exposed the corporations stand in solidarity like cornered wounded animals? Remember how last year’s great Maddow and Cooper boycott ended their careers like the left’s attack on Bill O’Reilly? Of course not, and there’s a reason that didn’t happen. Hell, why is it that when a conservative host lightly insults a liberal activist who himself has been calling everyone who disagrees with him a murderer, the person smearing his opponents as killers is the one that corporations side with? (Then again, if the corporate heads only paid attention to the liberal media as it fawned over its new heroes, they might not know how insulting the Parkland brats have been.)
It makes no sense to me. Why would corporations flee from or attack the very people who supposedly support them, but then rally around their alleged enemies? It can’t be because public opinion is against conservatives, everything from polls to elections shows quite the opposite and also show that some of the causes that liberal groups circle the wagons around are very unpopular with the public. It can’t be because corporations are diverse environments loaded with traditionally liberal voters who are just following their consciences, otherwise A: corporations would not exist because the anti-capitalist (unless it’s the Crony variety) Left would have disbanded them lest they be accused of hypocrisy, B: the leadership wouldn’t be a bunch of old white men, and C: the Left’s narrative about corporations being soulless non-entities would be disproved.
I am at a loss here for an explanation, unless it were to somehow turn out that big billionaires benefited from the Left. But that would be strange, given how liberals never lie and always tell us that they’re against such billionaires because they’re jealous of their wealth and because they’re mostly white. Or, as was the case with the liberal love fest/media cause du jour Occupy Wall Street protesters, they are against the corporate overlords because they’re Jews.
We all can acknowledge that you don’t get to be a corporate overlord without some intelligence, yes? Is it smart to encourage your predators in this manner? If the Left were as genuinely anti-corporate as they claimed, why would intelligent businessmen support them? Why would companies surrender to liberal boycotts, whether it’s in dropping anything from a Fox News host to an entire state, yet when there is controversy around a liberal the companies seem immune to all boycott efforts? Bill O’Reilly was fired while Indiana and Georgia backed down as a result of boycotts, whereas liberal hosts still have their jobs and liberal companies still remain liberal.
You Still Haven’t Explained The Love Fest
The answer is simple: while the Left claims to be socialist or even communist, they’re really fascist. Liberal Wikipedia defines fascism as “a form of radical authoritarian nationalism… characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and control of industry and commerce”. Obama’s pen and phone, Antifa, boycotts to advance political agendas and control corporate sponsorships. Sure sounds a lot like the Left is fascist to me. “But what about nationalism,” you ask? One nation- across the globe. The modern fascist Left, while very similar to its 20th-century forebears, only differs in that it switched out the Jews for Whites (but Israel is still hated) and switched nationalism for globalism.
“Fascists believe that liberal democracy is obsolete and they regard the complete mobilization of society under a totalitarian one-party state as necessary to prepare a nation for armed conflict and to respond effectively to economic difficulties” as liberal Wikipedia tells us, and if you’d bother to look at their reactions to Trump, and his victory in particular, you would notice that they can best be summed up as “the only voters who matter are Democrat voters”. How tolerant, from the party that claims to value tolerance, from the party who once told Republicans “you don’t like a particular policy or a particular president, then argue for your position… Go out there and win an election.”
From their reaction to Trump, you get a general idea that they believe democracy is obsolete, and with everything they demand the government have the power to do, you get a distinct impression that they want totalitarianism. Certainly, that part about preparing for economic difficulties comes into play, specifically wealth inequality through the partly-Democrat-caused 2008 crash (as I said before, the Democrats walked into a powder keg and deliberately lit a match because they wanted a big boom) is another crisis that society should be mobilized towards. As for armed conflict? They actually dropped that, at least until they started demanding we start a war with Russia.
“The Fascist regime created a corporatist economic system in 1925 with the creation of the Palazzo Vidioni Pact, in which the Italian employers’ association Confindustria and Fascist trade unions agreed to recognize each other as the sole representatives of Italy’s employers and employees, excluding non-Fascist trade unions”. Name one union in the U.S. that isn’t a Democrat donor. And, a corporatist system sure explains why corporations are so eager to suck up to the Left. They want to be the winners. You see, while the Right is generally good for corporations (or so goes the stereotype for you doubters), it’s good for ALL corporations and small businesses. The Left, on the other hand, has a tendency to pick the winners and losers, with policies that all around crush small businesses.
“Fascism’s theory of economic corporatism involved management of sectors of the economy by government or privately controlled organizations (corporations)… Each trade union or employer corporation would theoretically represent its professional concerns, especially by negotiation of labor contracts and the like. It was theorized that this method could result in harmony amongst social classes… However, authors have noted that historically de facto economic corporatism was also used to reduce opposition and reward political loyalty”. Gee, I wonder which political party has done that?
So as the venerable founder of this blog has pointed out before, whenever a liberal yells “fascist” it’s probably because they’re looking in a mirror.
And that in effect answers my question above. Why do corporations always kowtow to liberals, no matter how immature and spoiled they are? It’s because the Left will grant them favors in the future. Sacrificing dignity for profit, and liberals are encouraging this practice which they otherwise denounce. Hypocrisy.
