New York Times: What’s Happening on the Left Is No Excuse for What’s Happening on the Right

These people have zero self awareness.

What did you do yesterday? As usual, I sat at home and made fun of people on the internet. In Washington, however, Senate Democrats spent the day accusing their opposition of trying to impose “Jim Crow 2.0” on blacks in preparation for their attempted power grab to gut the filibuster to pass their voting rights bill which only failed because Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema blocked the effort.

Have you noticed that these people have a habit of accusing us of doing the very things that they are doing? We hear these dire warnings about the rise of “authoritarianism” and “illiberalism” and “racism” from the people who are eager to discriminate against Whites in every aspect of public policy to promote “equity,” who have censored the entire internet, who have weaponized the FBI, who have turned Congress into a witch hunting Inquisition, who have imposed segregation on the “unvaccinated,” etc.

New York Times:

“American democracy has often confronted hostile forces from outside the United States; rarely has it been under as much of a threat from forces within the nation. The danger arises from illiberalism on the left and the right. Both sides are chipping away at the foundations of the American Republic; each side seems oblivious to its own defects.

Again and again, we have heard conservatives argue that even if you believe that Donald Trump is flawed and the MAGA movement is worrisome, the left is much more dangerous. We disagree. Fears about the left’s increasingly authoritarian, radical tendencies are well grounded; but they have blinded many conservatives to the greater danger posed by the right, which we believe is a threat to our constitutional order and therefore to conservatism itself. …”

Hillary Clinton said Trump was an illegitimate president.

The Russia Hoax which was based on the media flooding the country with disinformation went on for years. Does anyone else remember when Antifa rioted in DC to block Trump’s inauguration? Did Trump ever do anything as radical as ordering a purge of “extremists” from the U.S. military?

It is true that the two sides here are not equal. Joe Biden’s base are PMCs who are natural authoritarians and busybodies who relish bossing other people around. In contrast, Trump’s base are folk libertarians. They are opposed to the state taking away their guns. They are hostile to vaccine mandates. They don’t trust institutions. They have normal aspirations like secure borders and law and order. Generally speaking, they want to be left alone by the government and are happy to leave other people alone.

That’s the thing though with PMCs. As busybodies, they can’t leave you alone and respect your own space. They have to control and micromanage everything … the words you are allowed to say, your own personal health, whether you can own a firearm and most absurdly of all your diet. Donald Trump wasn’t a fascist dictator so much as he was just a giant middle finger to those people on the coasts.

As things stand today, various op-ed writers in the New York Times who are opposed to the rise of “authoritarianism” are only asking for small concessions like getting rid of the U.S. Constitution because it is an antiquated “white supremacist” document, getting rid of the filibuster, getting rid of the Senate, getting rid of the Electoral College, packing the Supreme Court, adding states, getting rid of the Bill of Rights and other obstacles to “our democracy.” By “our democracy,” they mean obstacles to their own power and rule as a social class. They are entitled to rule over everyone else who lives here.

  1. The sins of the left do not excuse the sins of the right; and what is happening on the right is wrecking authentic conservatism in ways the left never could.

    The sins of the left not only do excuse the “sins” of the right, they’re the overwhelming cause of them. BLM, antifa, and wokism have snapped normies out of their stupor like nothing the right has ever tried. That authentic cuckservatism is being wrecked in the process is just an added bonus.

    • “that these people have a habit of accusing us of doing the very things that they are doing? ”

      “Shut up goy, no one gave you permission to think”

  2. Jonathan Rauch (Rauch means smoke in German): a homosexual Jew (link).

    Peter Wehner is a RINO/’never Trumper’ (not that I hold the latter against him): Following the removal of Liz Cheney from the House leadership, Wehner was quoted in The Atlantic’s electronic newsletter of May 12, 2021, as having said, “The Trump presidency might have been the first act in a longer and even darker political drama, in which the Republican Party is becoming more radicalized” in a section headed “The new GOP is a threat to American democracy”.

    The useless faggot (literal and figurative) pundit class is a plague on the country.

  3. The telling thing is that this editorial in the New York Times could be cut and pasted as an editorial in National Review and no one would see any difference.

  4. The most telling thing about this is that you could cut and paste that New York Times editorial into National Review as an editorial and no one would be able to tell the difference.

  5. New York Times determines what is too left and what is too right, and that being too left is no excuse for being too right.

    The Gray Lady, the Flagship of U.S. “news” media is both Neocon and Neolib, steers a straight course of indoctrination of the masses between not “too far” right and not really left, to serve the interests of Big Money, the super-wealthy elite.

    The New York Times IS capitalism and it supports every imperialist war. Note that The Washington Post and FOX (Murdoch) media are the next big ships in line, following the same course of indoctrination as the NYT. If you can possibly help it, don’t give views or payments to any of them.

  6. These people need to explain how and why they are fit to lead and rule, where does their authority come from. It is not from God and Christ.

    They have rejected Christ, they do not believe you should treat others in a way you would like to be treated. They want to rule by force. They seek to rule as the beast and as the animal, as that which is without reason. And civilized human being can never be ruled over by animals. It is an impossibility.

    They can’t tell you it is Moshiach, the out loud laughing would be too much for them to take.

      • Wait go back , I still don’t understand why there has never been an Irish pope. Educate me on that one professor. Do the Catholics know something about the Irish and are not sharing it with the rest of us? Or are they worried about all the wine disappearing in one gulp?

  7. “Donald Trump wasn’t a fascist dictator so much as he was just a giant middle finger to those people on the coasts.”

    Biden is their middle finger back at us.

  8. HW: Have you noticed that these people have a habit of accusing us of doing the very things that they are doing?

    Of course. It’s 100% predictable. It’s also known as “projection”. Vox Day spelled it out in his 3 axioms about SJWs 5 years ago (also titles of his little books).

    1. SJWs (=Shitlibs, PMCs, 90+% of Jews) Always Lie.

    2. SJWs Always Project.

    3. SJWs Always Double Down.

    Nobody works at the New Duranty Times unless they are in agreement with Woke dogma. Even old-school liberals are outta there by now. Any token conservative there is a Cuckservative (step-n-fetchit lives on). It’s a vast lie factory – one of many. Part of the Ministry of Truth. It’s funded with all sorts of murky slush funds controlled by ruling elite. It does not have to operate as a normal business. It would have been bankrupt long ago if not.

    Lying Jew: Again and again, we have heard conservatives argue that even if you believe that Donald Trump is flawed and the MAGA movement is worrisome, the left is much more dangerous. We disagree.

    Who’s this “we” kemosabe? Would that be the local minyan, or perhaps the ruling sayanim council? It might include some other Church of Woke types, but betcha they’re taking orders from the ADL too. The best thing Zion Don ever did for us is lose the election. It was his own damned fault too, regardless of whether demonic shitlibs like Rauch stole it or he lost because he was too busy to pay attention to his base while fellating jews and negroes on the whole campaign trail. The more crazy, murderous and un-hinged the Church of Woke becomes, the better. Normies – dimwitted as they may be – are starting to notice.
