Defeat of Modern Liberalism
November 11, 2016 under World News
The Economist published a rather panicked editorial recently stating that the US presidential contest between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton represents “the gravest risk to the free world since communism,” with “the future of the liberal world order” depending on Clinton’s success.
Well, Clinton failed and with her hopefully goes the liberal world order that has led our current civilization to the edge of a cliff. There is no bottom that anyone can see across the ravine so deep and cutting have been our civilizations mistakes. Unfortunately so bad is the damage that it is doubtful that any form of politics will bring us across safely to the other side.
Ron Paul sees the election results as a big repudiation of the liberal elite. David Stockman writes, “America’s voters fired their ruling elites last night. After 30 years of arrogant misrule and wantonly planting the seeds of economic and financial ruin throughout Flyover America, the Wall Street/Washington establishment and its mainstream media tools have been repudiated like never before in modern history.”
Best not to forget that most republicans have participated gladly in liberal dreams of world order and establishment`s aggression against massive amounts of peoples both domestic (war on drugs) and internationally in endless wars.
It has been hard to tell the difference between Republicans and Democrats until Trump yet it is unclear how much power the new president will have to effect meaningful change. There are more powerful people than presidents but let’s hope this one is strong enough to go up against them. The elections did not make the elites poorer but perhaps some of their power over humanity can be weakened by an exceptionally strong president. Hopefully President Trump will ride in the same traditional as President Andrew Jackson, who fought the banking elites of his time tooth and nail.
Glen Greenwald writes, “Afterward, the elites whose entitlement to prevail was crushed devoted their energies to blaming everyone they could find except for themselves, while doubling down on their unbridled contempt for those who defied them, steadfastly refusing to examine what drove their insubordination. The prevailing institutions of authority in the West, for decades, have relentlessly and with complete indifference stomped on the economic welfare and social security of hundreds of millions of people.”
Greenwald highlights the fact that, “Democrats knowingly chose to nominate a deeply unpopular, extremely vulnerable, scandal-plagued candidate, who — for very good reason — was widely perceived to be a protector and beneficiary of all the worst components of status quo elite corruption.”
According to the Economist, the current political landscape is one in which the old, “left versus right” divide is being superseded by a “closed versus open” debate in which anti-globalists hoist banners. Globalists and their dreamed one world liberal order of course is not democratic. Nation states have to dissolve themselves into it, which they are not about to do.
Geert Wilders of the Netherlands writes, “Many things are bothering us. There is also much to be angry about, and rightfully so. This government has destroyed our country with its austerity policies and has allowed our country to be colonized by Islam. But let's start aiming for the imaginable. Let us liberate our country.” He is expressing the sentiment of the rising right`s basic element, which is to protect the women and home society where as liberals are falling all over themselves to ban free speech—any speech that addresses the increasing violence coming from the Islamic world.
Wilders said, “And I will not keep silent about Islam either. Never, ever. Because silence is dangerous. Last July, Nobel Prize winner and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel passed away. I met him a few years ago in New York. He gave the world a wise lesson: "When someone says they want to kill you, believe them." Islam says it wants to kill us. The Koran leaves no doubt about that.”
Tolerating the Intolerable
Tolerance is supposed to be the broadest definition or the basic underlying value of a liberal society. Using four letter words does not quite describe the insanity of taking tolerance to the point where you tolerate almost anything. The left is so tolerant, they’re tolerating intolerance.
Liberals can talk all they want about the importance of tolerance but when they stand by and tolerate as masses of women are sexually attacked by Muslim men we get a clear picture of their true colors. When we see their support for the lies of climate change we get a smell of their stench. We when read about their globalist plans we see them for the monsters they are—antidemocratic to the core, elite lapdogs whose ideals make them cruel.
The liberal western media and the elites that own them will not give up declaring that Trump is a disaster for the planet (for the global warming scam). “How were climate scientists, policymaker and diplomats planning to deal with a Donald Trump presidency? The truth is, they weren’t. People who have dedicated their lives to working to save the planet always preferred to focus optimistically on how they could push a President Hillary Clinton further to the left on climate policy.”
Trump’s move to the White House in just a couple of months will almost certainly bring an end to an era of lies and deceptions that exposed environmentalists as Decepticons more mental metal than hearts that were in love with both truth and science. Environmentalists have given liberals a great part of their bad name. They are partially responsible for an abandonment of science in favor of their ideas and ambitions. In their attempts to save they destroy.
The idea that liberals, in the form of international financiers and political elites, would purposely create economic disparity, social chaos and global war out of a desire for centralized power and a disturbed sense of superiority is simply too much for liberals to see about themselves this cruelty at play.
Most liberals enjoy the virtues of a liberal society, and are grateful to live in one, and think the world would in fact be a better place if liberal institutions and values were more widely — even universally — embraced.
I would have agreed many years ago to such values but when I read what is happening with the Islamic invasion of the west, and the women being raped, and societies being threatened, and the pathetic attitudes that excuses liberals come up with it makes me want to run to the right as fast as my feet can take me.
There is a collapse going on of the liberal world. “And language control is thought control. Period. The rise of modern political correctness (PC) is a great example of the cunning way in which social engineers such as the New World Order manipulators operate. Political correctness is soft censorship. It is intolerance disguised as tolerance.
As George Carlin said, it is fascism pretending to be manners. It is running amok not just in Universities but now almost everywhere in society. Just as Orwell laid out so precisely in 1984, political correctness is the Newspeak which is threatening to limit our ability to freely speak and think, by reducing the number of available words in our vocabulary.”
Death is coming while liberals are all over themselves playing the blame game. Liberals are right. They know they are right. They insist on being right. They get very indignant if you suggest they are wrong. The worst in liberal intelligence could be expressed, “The idiocy of allowing millions of refugees to flood the continent when their socialist paradise is already bankrupt is beyond comprehension for rational thinking people,” writes the Burning Platform.
Liberals like Clinton ignore the basic teachings of Islam, which teach men to never accept Muslim women as equals and infidel women as nothing more than potential slaves. The left is becoming increasingly lethal with its blinders to the threat of Islamic terrorism, not only of the armed violent type but also of the rapist type. The relationship between Islamic society and honor killing is just another example how Islamic culture is not compatible with the West.
“Donald in effect convinced a huge slice of the electorate that the Clintons amounted to America’s leading crime family,” said David Stockman and that is what being a true blue liberal amounts to in this age of massive deception. It is a crime, though it is a crime shared across all political and social-economic classes. Look at the betrayal of the Greek people at the hands of their leftist politicians.
Simon Black writes, “Hillary Clinton had the full and unabashed backing of the entire media establishment. And the banking establishment. And the political establishment. And countless billionaires, Hollywood celebrities, rock stars, international press, foreign leaders, and even the President of the United States. Yet all of those big guns proved to be ineffective against a citizenry that’s fed up with the status quo.”
The best part of admitting one is wrong is that one then gets to be right. We will not see much of this though because humility is not one of the strong suits of liberals and those who have thrived on the established order.
