Responding to the Escalating Bad Behavior of Unhinged Leftists

The revolting, vile, and unhinged behavior of leftist protesters and union thugs is escalating.  It’s becoming more.  More revolting, more vile, more unhinged.  These bizarre self-loathing lunatics have crawled out of their dark corners on the far left fringes of decent society, and are doing everything they can to provoke good, decent American patriots.  The videos are stomach-turning (you can see many of them over at theblogprof, if you haven’t already), their hatred emanates from their every unintelligible utterance, every disgusting slur, every sleazy threat.  These are the people whom we ignored for decades.  Lunatic commies, socialists, anti- and unAmerican weirdos who may once have raised an indulgent eyebrow (or prompted an eye roll) are now slithering into the light of day.  This escalation is worrying.

They don’t understand what socialism is (with a few high-profile exceptions like Lawrence O’Donnell), they haven’t a clue who or what Nazis were/are (just some vague notion that Nazism is bad), and they couldn’t tell you one tenet of fascism. They have no idea that there is a difference between a republic and a democracy, they are clueless about the difference between patriotism and rabid nationalism (everything’s the same, right, these intellectual giants “think”), and they have no idea what the TEA Party is.  We know this because they say the most absurd things, and with a straight face (well, it’s usually kind of distorted by screaming and blind rage).  They don’t understand capitalism, they don’t understand liberalism, and they don’t understand conservatism.  And that’s just how the leftist puppet masters like it:  informed people who are not stoked to within an inch of violence by class and race warfare are not malleable, controllable.  Ignorance is key to the success of leftists; deception their lifeblood.

The demonization of us, the lurid lies and truly illogical accusations are gobbled up, internalized, believed with a cult-like fervor and spat back out with a strange combination of an utter lack of self-awareness and a sinister, toxic venom.  Leftists are so twisted by hatred, self-loathing, and impotent rage that they’ve convinced themselves that violence is not only desirable but that it’s desirable now, so they are going out of their way to provoke a reaction from normal, hard-working Americans like us.  Oddly, the longer we’ve remained peaceful and respectful, the more their hopes are dashed when every violent political act has turned out to be (surprise) a leftist (or just some poor insane person who needs a psychiatrist to sort out his ravings), the more their resentment rises, the more the pressure-cooker of hatred, self-loathing, and impotent rages build up.  And it’s looking for an outlet.

It’s good to keep Alinsky’s “rules for radicals” in mind, good because it reminds us that this is all being crafted, it’s not real (however real it may seem to the demonic deranged, it’s not–they’re expendable to the leftist leadership, tools not people, cannon fodder of sorts in their beloved, long-awaited communist revolution).  Back in ’09, I wrote a post about Alinksy’s rules and how they played out during and after the ’08 election.  Things have escalated alarmingly since then, with many tactics being employed with a definite air of desperation.  I won’t quote the whole post, but a few of the Alinsky tactics are worth noting at this time.

We on the right often get frustrated that leftists, be they pols or bloggers or trolls, never address real issues, never want to talk about the problem or (God forbid!) a solution.  They only want to lay blame, rehash old debates, make wild accusations about how we got here, and/or change the subject to something else entirely (usually in the form of an ad hominem attack or some of their more bizarre cultish teachings).  This is straight out of Alinksy:

RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. (Organizations under attack wonder why radicals don’t address the “real” issues. This is why. They avoid things with which they have no knowledge.)

Lefties are secure when they can attack, when they are filled with blind rage (even if they are not quite sure why they are so angry–and if you press them, they won’t be able to tell you in terms that are rooted in fact or logic, it’s always based in wild hyperbole and outlandish accusations that have no basis in reality); confusion comes when they have to talk about actual issues.  They simply can’t do more than dredge up either a straw man or an emotional appeal (they’ve been trying to use religion lately, and I find this laughable–being preached to by the godless amuses me no end).  They have no evidence that their way works (indeed the historical record shows with crystal clarity that it doesn’t), they have no rhyme or reason for their unrealistic policies (this is why all we hear from the boob in the WH is that “it’s the right thing to do.”).

RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.) 

And this is what’s being pushed now.  Hard.  We’ve already noted that the more the leftists lash out and demonize us, the more our numbers grow.  We’re currently the perceived underdog, indies are fleeing this admin and its cultists, but if the rabid leftists keep pushing it and to the point that someone on our side reacts with violence, we immediately, in that second, lose.  They know this.  Thus the escalation.  Imagine the triumphant hoots and high fives the second a TEA Party person becomes violent.  Leftists the country over would be jubilant, and we, along with our great nation, would be destroyed.  So that can’t happen.

Luckily, we’re quick studies.  Look at how effectively we’ve turned the Alinsky tables on the leftists’ “call for civility.”

RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.) 

We did this, daily, holding leftists’ to their own faux standard of civil discourse.  Blog after blog, post after post, video after video, we held them to their own standards–my very favorite is the fabulous NiceDeb‘s Left-Wing Institute for Civil Discourse.  She rounds up the week’s uncivil bile spewed by leftists and then asks people to vote on the worst:  she then announces weekly “winners.” It’s a thing of beauty.  And what do you know?  The white flag of leftist surrender went up last week, only a few short months after the “civility” muzzle was lobbed at conservatives.

So how do we deal with the unhinged, the attempts to prompt violence from us?   Well, we turn the tables on them, that’s how.  One of the most inspiring things that I saw this past week was a video someone posted on Facebook (sorry, I can’t remember who posted it).  It’s of this amazing group of veterans and patriots called the Patriot Guard Riders.  These inspiring men (and women) go to military funerals that are being protested by those horrible leftists in the Westboro Baptist Cult (it’s hardly a church).  The Patriot Guard Riders go there and peacefully assemble, holding American flags, and they block the view of the disrespectful, hateful cultists.  When the cultists get too loud and can be heard by the grieving families, the Patriot Guard Riders rev their Harleys and drown them out.  It’s goose-bump inspiring.

And this is the exact way to respond to the frothing at the mouth unhinged lunatic lefties who protest our rallies.  We block their view, we wave our American flags, and raise our voices in songs of patriotism (a rousing rendition of “God Bless America” would be perfect), and we smile pleasantly, unperturbed by their presence.  We are confident in ourselves, motivated not by hatred, self-loathing, and impotent rage but by love for our country and for our fellow patriots.  If you think about it, they’ve already lost . . . they just don’t know it yet.

  1. @Trestin, hmmm, good question. Googled it, but didn't find much (I won't click on their website, not that they'd have any real info there, anyway). From what I gathered, it seems that about 7 of Phelps' 11 kids are lawyers, and the group funds itself through member donations and lawsuits it files against cities, police, etc. Scum through and through, of course, but it is odd that they can spend $200k a year traveling around the country being obnoxious and hateful. As a purported “religious” organization, they are tax exempt, as well. But they don't seem to actually recruit for their cult; it's all family and extended family, so it is strange that they have so much money. Hmmmm

  2. The lefty kooks are being manipulated and used as brownshirts by the latte leftist pseudo-intellectuals who are trying to maintain the statist status quo.

    I think it will get worse before it gets better.

    The patriot guard rocks! I met a bunch of them at an event for a fallen Seal up in Denver right after I got back from the middle east. Lefties (who else) threatened to disrupt the event. Patriot Guard and other patriotic bikers made sure that didn't happen.

  3. Great post Fuzzy…

    Any time we are having a sign waving and some dipstick starts ranting and waving, we just say “God bless you”… One Saturday this jerk stopped at the stop light, starts screaming at us and we did the usual “God bless you”, he got so outraged I swear to you he almost stroked out… He was frothing at the mouth and got short of breath… We've decided that just like fighter pilots, if we can get someone to stroke out, we get to put an L on our sign with a circle and a line through it… I almost got one when I was using my SIZE MATTERS / smaller government sign… Some tool in a pick up truck called me an EFFING Teabagger, so all I said was “small one huh”… He almost ran into the car in front of him, I think he soiled himself…

  4. What a moving video and a great article, Fuzzy. The union thugs have become unhinged and most of America is recognizing that. I just wonder how much lower the union thugs can stoop to?

  5. Some of the Patriot Guard Riders were at my brother-in-law's funeral a couple of years ago. They escorted us from the church to the cemetery. Thankfully we didn't have any kooks or haters but instead there were people (strangers) lining the streets holding flags. The whole thing was amazing to witness. I'll forever be thankful to the kindness & respect shown to us, and the Patriot Riders.

    Great post Fuzzy. I'll be sharing.

  6. Agreed, I don't think much of polls but 'the polls' say the majority of republicans are disappointed with the current crop of potential candidates for 2012. That's good. Even better if it forces a non-RINO to the fore.

    Here is a video that is over on Trestins site – LINK

    At the risk of conceit, I've been saying this for years. Liberals who are not consciously working the communist agenda, and therefore know exactly what they're doing, are Children. Dangerous yes, but children. Facts are Nothing to them by sources of aggravation because facts always disagree with socialism and childlike thinking.

    To your main point though, Dangerous Yes! We must all become MLK's because they are going to get louder and more violent as they realize their fantasy palace is crashing around them. (Hey, this is pretty good, I shoulda done a post. :))

  7. Fuzzy, Trestin. Westboro is not a church, it is a collection of Sleazebag lawyers who intentionally put themselves in harm's way and fund themselves by suing the people who hit them in [righteous] anger.

    Think of a herd of John Edwards's only ones with courage.

    SCUM of the Earth my friends.

    Fuzzy, maybe your link pointed that out…. I was in a little hurry to go watch or read.

  8. @Silverfiddle, precisely, on all counts. šŸ™‚

    @Odie, that's a splendid idea! There's one in MA, too. šŸ˜‰

    @Adrienne, heh, I know, I tend to be rather verbose in a climate and forum in which people like short and meaty. I can't help it. šŸ™‚ Thanks for the so-kind words. Yay!

    @DS, thanks to you, my sarky pal.

    @Born Again American, I read your comment yesterday and couldn't stop laughing. You ROCK! Keep on keeping on. šŸ™‚

    @Teresa, there are some great vids on YouTube of the Patriot Guard Riders reving their bikes (not all Harleys) and otherwise peacefully “neutralizing” the Phelps' cult. They can and will stoop much lower, but that's okay, they won't cross the line to violence en mass, they NEED us to make that first move. Too bad for them that we never will. šŸ˜‰

    @Tammy, I'm so sorry for your loss, but I'm happy that your family experienced the amazing kindness, generosity, heroism, and patriotism of the Patriot Guard Riders.

    @Kid, they are very childlike in their wide-eyed devotion to the leftist cult, good analogy. And exactly, non-violence, serenity, faith, and truth will win the day. Luckily, these are things that come naturally to us. šŸ™‚

  9. Fuzzy, Sorry for my brevity. Your comment is true and accurate, but I was more thinking “their childlike devotion to themselves”. Because that is really all they care about.

    The only reason they attach themselves to the left is because the left is not the right. The right is facts, and facts are fantasy destroyers. Facts are the enemy and therefore we are the enemy, so they will befriend their enemies enemy. (darn, that's good I think – I gotta use that)

    Unlike children, they've been around a while, so they've learned to use the environment(pardon the pun) around them and they use their false caring about everything (which they don't give a * about) to beat conservatives over the head about everything. But it's completely transparent. Just like a child is completely transparent.

    Unfortunately, they are(as sociopaths always are) very good at the game and they pull in a lot of young people and others of limited intelligence with their constant victimization of anything and everything, which not surprisingly, casts capitalists as the demon.
    Put the true communists at the top of their food chain and I think that about sums it up actually.

    Here is a small real life example:
    I sometimes listen to Hannity from 5 pm to the 1st commercial break on the ride home. he had some notorious liberal woman on today, can't remember the name. In the course of their conversation, he mentions that 1 (or 2?)% of Americans pay 40% of income tax and 10% pay 70% of all federal income taxes. She says “Well, that's not true” and trudges on with her swiss cheese logic. Well, it is true. You can check it out and see that it is true. It is undeniable. The stats come from the Government.
    This is the mind of the liberal. Childlike. “I don't like that fact, so to me it is not true”.

    To add insult to injury, they are talking about the debt and she wants to close all 'the tax loopholes' so that the 'filthy rich' pay their fair share and all our fiscal problems are solved.

    1.) You could take 100% of the income of the filthy rich and pretty much everyone else and you couldn't solve the fiscal problem given the 1.6 trillion deficit as far as the eye can see, and
    2.) If you try to squeeze any more out of the 'filthy rich' they will simply take their money elsewhere.

    3.) Hannity missed a golden op. She said America was the greatest country on the planet in the course of her pathetic debate to which I would have replied, America is the greatest country because it is not like all the others which are either Communist, Socialist or Totalitarian. Get IT whatever her name was !?

  10. @Kid, ah the many ways that lefties are transparent. That's a whole blog post right there. šŸ™‚

    The “it's not true” sounds like Kirsten Powers, she says that all the time. It's the typical leftist response to facts they don't like (you're right about that). And Hannity always misses golden opportunities; he's always thinking about what he's going to say next, not listening to the interviewee. It's a shame because there've been far too many times that he's totally missed key points from both conservatives and liberals.

  11. Fuzzy, Ayup. (Wasn't a kirsten, but whoever it was, she just powered on like a mind numbed robot, smiling the whole time)

    Enjoy šŸ™‚

  12. Wow Fuzzy that was a phenomenal post. You hit the nail on the moronic left wing head with precision.
    I agree with Adrienne that” Any day Fuzzy posts is a good day”

    Great job!

  13. Compare the reactions we're seeing to what happens when you back a wild animal into a corner: put enough pressure on that animal and make it fear for it's life and it'll come out all teeth and claws.

    The Lefties are feeling that kind of pressure, particularly the unions, which – after what's happened in Wisconsin and a couple other states I'm too lazy right now to go look up – they're feeling their lives threatened. Of COURSE they're going to come out frothing at the mouth.

    If they WEREN'T acting like this, I'd be worried – it'd mean (at least to me) that they've got something way up under their collective sleeve and are just waiting for the right moment to whip it out.
