To loathe lefties with a passion?

Came across this and loved it. Punctures left wing twats right between the eyes!

"The point is that the "hierarchy of victims " is not an accident nor unique to this case. It is the whole basis on which lefties' views and loyalties in any issue are shaped - i.e. not by its rights and wrongs, but by who the protagonists are.

Any group you can think of can be slotted somewhere into the heirarchy of those whom the left either likes - ethnic minorities, Muslims, communists, strikers, the disabled, women, gays, public sector workers, dole claimants, and criminals, for example - or loathes: Americans, Tories, farmers, taxpayers, men generally, bankers and owners of private wealth.

These hatreds instruct the left on any issue. If demonstrating NUM miners are forcibly dispersed by the police, they side with the miners. If the Countryside Alliance are dispersed by the police, however, they side with the police, because they like miners and hate farmers.

If a Tory government withdraws money from pensioners it's the epitome of evil. If an NHS worker leaves the elderly to starve to death in their own excrement, the left couldn't care less. The left isn't pro-elderly unless this means being anti-someone else. If the someone else is the NHS producer, then the left isn't pro-elderly any more. The side they pick is the producer, who matters more than the consumer.

Where it all goes tits up is when two different client groups are at each others' throats. So the leftist sympathises with the criminal in general - unless the crime is domestic violence. Then they sympathise with the woman. Unless, again, the man is a Muslim cleric, in which case the lefty has to look away. Reggae singers going on about shooting gays in the head: this does not compute. Gangs of Muslims threatening gays: does not compute. Black governments victimising their own citizens? Pretend it isn't happening.

The left doesn't really give a toss about miners. What matters is who else is involved. White British police? - side with the miners. Black Communist-controlled police? - side with the police, they're above reproach - or at any rate, above miners [reference to ANC police and black miners at Marikana].

As we've noted before, Lefties reduce every issue to a disgusting form of Top Trumps. They are, quite simply, morally incompetent."

Is it unreasonable to agree that lefties are morally incompetent?

And you are suggesting that there is not a similar conservative hierarchy? hmm

MeSoFunny Mon 25-Feb-13 12:54:12

extremely.

wow, how childish!

so every single person with left-wing views is a morally-incompetent twat?

major generalisation, there.

AutumnMadness Mon 25-Feb-13 12:55:01

OP, you forgot one more irritating leftie trait - we are pedantic buggers and like the sources of information used in arguments to be cited.

inde Mon 25-Feb-13 12:55:28

I would stop reading the Daily Mail and Telegraph if I were you. A few weeks abstinance and you will probably start to return to reality again.

Anyway YABU, you can't catagorise all left wingers as have the same thoughts anymore than you could right wingers.

DeepRedBetty Mon 25-Feb-13 12:55:52

I thought Orwell's sheep going 'four legs good, two legs bad' put it perfectly.

PeppermintPasty Mon 25-Feb-13 12:56:06

A lot of bigotry and hatred around today.

Blipbipbeep Mon 25-Feb-13 12:56:08

biscuit couldn't be bothered to read to the end of the post,

YABU

AutumnMadness Mon 25-Feb-13 12:56:10

I am also rather intrigued by the assertion that lefties don't like taxpayers.

i must be morally incompetent...

* Punctures left wing twats right between the eyes!*

Bit aggressive, aren't you?

Lottapianos Mon 25-Feb-13 12:57:09

'Morally incompetent'??? hmm

'Lefties' are not a homogenous group by the way

'Unless, again, the man is a Muslim cleric, in which case the lefty has to look away. Reggae singers going on about shooting gays in the head: this does not compute. Gangs of Muslims threatening gays: does not compute. Black governments victimising their own citizens? Pretend it isn't happening. '

I am a very proud 'leftie' and I certainly did not look away from any of these examples. I am disgusted by domestic violence (am a survivor myself), homophobia, racism in all its forms and misogyny. I am staunchly pro-choice and pro-drug legalisation and I consider myself anything but morally incompetent.

Where did you read this charming article by the way?

kittyandthegoldenfontanelles Mon 25-Feb-13 12:57:27

Are you being unreasonable?

erm...?

oh dear

confused

Are you being serious?

Reminds me of this joke:

How do you confuse a Daily Mail reader?
Tell them asylum seekers kill paedophiles.

Iggly Mon 25-Feb-13 12:59:47

YABU

Do you live in a world of black and white, left and right? hmm

We have more in common than we do not. Our political views do not make us the people that we are.

Limelight Mon 25-Feb-13 13:00:27

Wow you're angry! I think you might need a lie down my love.

Hullygully Mon 25-Feb-13 13:00:33

I agree!

I HATE lefties. I hate people that care about other people. It's dog eat dog and the devil take the hindmost and fuck everyone.

Hullygully Mon 25-Feb-13 13:00:56

Great joke, charliemosue

WestieMamma Mon 25-Feb-13 13:00:56

I'm rather intrigued at your 'The left doesn't really give a toss about miners'.

My dad was a staunch 'leftie'. He also spent most of his working life down a pit in Yorkshire, as did his brothers, and was a shop steward in the NUM. confused

<yawns>

Try harder next time.

PeneloPeePitstop Mon 25-Feb-13 13:01:12

YANBU.
Posts like the one the OP made are, however, often made by utter wankers.

tabulahrasa Mon 25-Feb-13 13:01:25

How bizarre.I assume that people with different political views to me have looked at the issue and decided what they think is right and wrong based on how they feel about the actual issue, because that's what I do.

It would never occur to me that they do so out of some strange hierarchical prejudice, unless of course that was how I thought about issues...

MeSoFunny Mon 25-Feb-13 13:01:45

Either YABU or you are Peter Hitchens. Either way your sanity is in need to attention.

Stangirl Mon 25-Feb-13 13:02:16

Charlie - love that joke.
