The extreme Right and Left now both support central government planning with little, or no, personal liberty. The difference is one group hates Whites, the other Jews.— RAMZPAUL (@ramzpaul) April 17, 2020
Honestly, I'm not even mad at conservative whites for being dumbasses. There are and always will be dumbasses. I'm mad at the GOP and conservative media for lying to them about what's important.— Mike P's Juice Squeeze ? (@MikePsJuice) April 17, 2020
Since this charge is being tossed our way, I will happily respond.
I’ve always been a critic of liberalism and global free-market capitalism. Long before the coronavirus pandemic, I was criticizing the ideology of the mainstream Right on this website, which is conservative liberalism. I have also always believed that the Jewish Question is an effect of our social order. It is liberalism and capitalism that have made Jews wealthy and powerful.
I’m not a liberal. I believe individual liberty is a good, but it isn’t the ONLY good and it shouldn’t be the basis of our social order. There are other goods in life and when any good is taken to an extreme to the detriment of all other goods it becomes a curse. Health, for example, is another good. The liberal is someone who believes that “liberty” or “equality” or “tolerance” or “individual rights” are the only goods and takes these things to absurd extremes. They are rigid ideologues and fanatics who are incapable of balancing goods for the sake of the common good even in emergency situations.
The coronavirus has discredited the mainstream Right and its ideology of conservative liberalism. It isn’t the virus that is killing people so much as it is liberalism. The coronavirus epidemic in the United States was seeded by tens of thousands of unregulated flights from hot zones which landed at our airports, the fear of “spooking the markets” and the science illiterates who surround Donald Trump who advised him to “ride it out” and insisted on comparing a new SARS virus to the regular flu. It was made many times worse than it otherwise would have been by a toxic culture of paranoia and conspiracy theories. In New Zealand, Taiwan and South Korea, 11 people, 6 people and 230 people have respectively died from the virus. In contrast, over 35,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus and the death toll continues to grow by the day.
Unlike the mainstream Right, the “extreme Right” is flexible and would have easily dealt with this crisis. For starters, the “extreme Right” wouldn’t have been paralyzed with fear of being accused of “racism” or “xenophobia” by other liberals. The “extreme Right” wouldn’t have underreacted to the threat posed by the virus out of the fear of “spooking the markets.” The “extreme Right” is authoritarian and believes in the common good. Unlike conservatives and libertarians, the “extreme Right” isn’t hostage to a tiny oligarchy of billionaires and has bitterly complained about their sway over Donald Trump for years now. The “extreme Right” was right about both the danger of open borders and outsourcing our industries.
The “extreme Right” was on top of the coronavirus in January. Unlike the mainstream media, I never compared the coronavirus to the ordinary flu. I never once downplayed the threat it posed. I saw it coming months ago. I can say that I was right the Iraq War and the coronavirus pandemic. I also predicted months ago when China was still the epicenter that it would have its most devastating impact in the West. It was conservatives and libertarians who dropped the ball on the coronavirus and it is because of the flaws of their own ideology too which the coronavirus has cut through like a buzzsaw.
What is the conservative or libertarian solution to the coronavirus? Typhoid Paul has told us hundreds of times now. Their only regret is that the lockdown stopped the epidemic, which they initially ignored, from spiraling even further out of control and infecting and killing even more vulnerable Americans. It has been quite a stunning showing of their true colors for the “pro-life” crowd.
Who is the real “extremist” here? Is it those who are practical, prudent and flexible, informed by science and religion and committed to the common good of the nation, OR, is it those whose minds are hobbled by ignorance, greed and paranoid conspiracy theories and who have made a virtue out of selfishness and a fetish out of abstract individual liberty and taken it to an unreasonable and shockingly immoral extreme in a national emergency?
