The moral and intellectual rot that has poisoned the liberal left

Dr Sanity’s, Who Would Have Believed It, is short but succinct look at the cost of dysfunction. First, she states the obvious:
Slowly and almost imperceptibly, the liberal left has morphed into the lunatic left. They have abandoned most of the liberal legacy that gave them emotional consistency and moral clarity; and instead, they have embraced positions that would have been completely inconceivable to imagine just a few short years ago…
It is this philosophy, slowly absorbed, that is responsible for the left abandoning any pretense at traditional liberalism, which used to champion the rights of the individual over the state. And it is the illogical and irrational tenets of postmodern philosophy that are at the heart of the moral and intellectual rot that has poisoned the liberal left and allowed its lunatic fringe undisputed center stage. Is it any wonder that they are not only comfortable with, but consciously (the leadership) and unconsciously appease and enable Islamic totalitarianism?
Of course, the ‘money shot’ was in an earlier post she has penned, The Four Pillars Of The Socialist Revival And The Rise Of Islamofacism:
Observe how easily Islam has been able to subvert key Western values–such as freedom of speech and expression–with a degree of invincibility and outraged virtue, capitalizing on a tactical opportunity that they have never before had in history. And worse of all, many on the political left–particularly the remnants of Utopian socialism– are aiding and abetting the Islamofascists…
Multiculturalism and political correctness are two of the fundamental pseudo-intellectual, quasi-religious tenets– along with a third: radical environmentalism–that have been widely disseminated by intellectuals unable to abandon socialism even after its crushing failures in the 20th century. These tenets have been slowly, but relentlessly absorbed at all levels of Western culture in the last decade or so–but primarily since the end of the Cold War…
Clearly, we have managed to insult some of the most dysfunctional, racist and bigoted creatures on the face of the earth...In a post, Thou Shalt Not Murder, Especially Souls, Gagdad Bob offers up some real insight. He looks at the cancers and those who refuse to acknowledge the death sentence cancer imposes.
Most soul murders are undoubtedly committed by those who are already so spiritually damaged as to be functionally dead. These undead souls such as a Nasrallah, an Arafat, or an Amahdinejad, speak to us from “the other side,” from the shadow world that is created when the soul has been so damaged that it essentially exits the body, leaving only a human animal in its place. But other demonic energies rush in to fill the void, so that the individual becomes a sort of “antihuman.” At their core, they are filled with unbearable envy toward the living, and the only way they can assuage this envy is to kill and kill plentifully. Life is a reminder of their own walking death, hence, “death to Israel,” that primordial symbol of life: l’chaim.
The undead also cannot help converting their children to their way of non-being. In ways both subtle and profound, they will interact with their children in a pathological manner, causing the children to internalize the same virus that afflicts their parents. Regardless, the virus always goes by the name of “love,” which simply further confuses the child. In the end, they will not be able to distinguish the difference between love and hate or truth and lies, any more than they can distinguish between life and death.
The mantra of the left has become ‘No to cancer! No to radiation!’
The left cannot claim any kind of morality if they are consumed by hate and refuse to allow the cancer of tyranny, oppression and dysfunction to be excised. When leftists call for and demand deceit, mayhem and destruction in the name of morality, they only exhibit their own moral emptiness. We once noted of the left
They are caught in a vortex of denial they have created for themselves and they have painted themselves into a corner, from which most are unlikely to emerge. They cannot concede the truth that is readily apparent to everyone- in attempting to define and distinguish themselves, they rejected the values of life and embraced the values of death.
Hate is always accompanied by hubris- and that is always preceded by cancerous narcissism that harbors bigotry and tolerates no dissent. A look at the regimes and leaders embraced by the left will confirm that. Posted by SC&A Filed in Uncategorized 2 Comments »
