The Left in America suggests that we trust our feelings. They run on emotion based on scant facts. In a world where there is no objective reality or truth, in a world where if you BELIEVE something is true, then it is -- is a world where something can be considered "fake but accurate". Consider the ACORN protesters being paid and bussed to sites of town hall meetings. Or President Obama and other legislators seeding their town hall meetings with hirelings who will pander to the official and stick to the script (fake but accurate?)
President Obama (a modern day Elmer Gantry) is a master of orchestrating the mass hysteria of the political rally. He works the crowd, playing on fears and emotional excitability and on a version of the tired old Marxist drama of oppressor vs the oppressed. "Change" brought through socialism will save the nation from the evils of American capitalist oppression over the poor in this country. There is no mention of the incredible economic success capitalism enjoys and the freedom it unleashes when compared to the pathetic lives people live under the yoke of communism/heavy handed socialism.
The New Left lives in its own tiny world of feelings. They know that deep inside their empathetic hearts that America is on the wrong side of history; that capitalism is evil; and that Marxist ideology is the salvation of all. They are so wrapped up in this fantasy that they haven't noticed that the people they are enabling are vicious, murdering thugs. Or maybe they have and they are indifferent to it. If they have, perhaps they are completely indifferent to it because all they want to do is cause humiliation with utter and total defeat to their arch enemies: America and capitalism.
Why is the Left sleepwalking through history and short circuiting their intellect to keep themselves from suffering psychological trauma? They were wrong about the nature of man, the nature of society and just about everything else. All that matters is that their FEELINGS validate that they are in the right.
The current attack on the Central Intelligence Agency (click here) is a classic example. You don't hear a word from the liberal press about the $2 trillion dollar mistake made by the Obama Administration on estimating the deficit. Don't focus on the $9 trillion deficit. Don't worry about that. Let's pay attention to the evils of George Bush and the CIA who kept America safe since 9/11/2001.
Do any of you feel as if you're living in Ayn Rand's ATLAS SHRUGGED?
The Left (as typified by the late [as of today] Senator Ted Kennedy) is unable to abandon the paranoia, projection and inability to face an unpleasant reality when they bet everything on an ideology whose nonsensical ideas NEVER worked in the real world. The creative delusions must be generated, the hate must be stoked constantly to keep their dashed hopes alive as they rage against reality. Sorry, reality doesn't care about their utopian fantasies.
