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?

Rhiannon's posts are always good value, she reminds me a bit of Nanna from the Royle family, it's like she wakes up on the middle of a thread but fails to grasp the gist of what is being discussed. She then just spouts off a load of seemingly unrelated guff. I think she might be a prototype spambot that just jumbles and repeats stuff from the comments on the Daily Mail website.

I guess people of all political persuasions can be guilty of not thinking their arguments through. But I've found this phenomenon to be at least as common amongst those of a right wing persuasion !

Probably because they're busy starting their own business and hugging farmers!

DH is a lefty with two businesses. He only employs immigrant women too, he is that committed to the cause & so idealistic.

(Well, he only employs one woman. She happens to be German-American. But still.)

Rhiannon
Well I don't know any lefties that have started their own business.

You need to get out a bit more then.

Wallison and gordyslovesheep, are you playing "Who got their drill from the most politically correct source" Top Trumps? I made MY drill from organically sourced lentils, ensuring that no ethnic minorities, Muslims, communists, strikers, the disabled, women, gays, public sector workers, dole claimants, and criminals were harmed. Ha!

Am feeling distinctly unpunctured...!

PessaryPam Mon 25-Feb-13 13:28:06

Well Abitwobblynow I would broadly concur with you. It seems to be absolutely fine for the left to bang on about how they hate Tories or (heaven forfend, UKIP) but they get upset when they are attacked.

"Well I don't know any lefties that have started their own business. Economic reality tends to put paid to lofty ideals fairly quickly, I have found."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think i remember hearing that Alan Sugar has donated £££'s to the Labour party in the past.

gordyslovesheep Mon 25-Feb-13 13:28:25

Hahaha I am also playing lefty business top trumps ...my ex is a lefty and has a very successful business

Work shy, forrin, leftie drills coming over here to puncture between our eyes... They don't even do a proper job.

I had to stop reading The Guardian on Facebook be side I couldn't bear the prescribed, left for the sake of being left, comments. So I do think there are some lefties out there who do just take the accepted left position regardless of any shades of grey. However, it is ignorant beyond belief to generalise about any group of people (even Daily Mail readers!).

RedwingonFire, what is your idea of reality?

My reality is not one where I extrapolate a supposed truth purely from personal experience!

gordyslovesheep Mon 25-Feb-13 13:29:21

PST Pam ...no one is upset ...its as funny as fuck!

To clarify. Care about people. Read 'create and implement policies which benefit society as a whole, incorporating fairness and compassion'. Not 'pursue selfish goals which care nothing for the benefit of the people, except a tiny minority of highly paid corrupt lizards who screw everyone else mercilessly for their own benefit'.

Okay I saw this thread and thought it was about left-handed people and was about to get all huffy....

As you were with the political discussion.
