Whenever we have to address the issue of “progressive” ideology in America today, the debate inevitably finds its way around to the grand idealism of “acceptance” and “tolerance.” The assertion by leftists is that they are on the side of “freedom” and human rights, and that by confronting or separating ourselves from certain behaviors we are revealing out bigotry and discrimination. In other words, leftists assert that all personal beliefs and behaviors must be embraced by the populace in order for society to become pure.
Except, this is not what they really believe. Leftists argue for tolerance of aberrant behaviors while admonishing normal human tribal and biological reactions. They have a vision for the world, and certain beliefs are not accepted within that Utopian fantasy.
The basis of the leftist religion is not a deity, it is self perception. They worship themselves and think the collective is valuable so long as it reaffirms their identity. Anything that might restrict their pursuit of self aggrandizement is considered oppressive. This is why they often argue in favor of moral relativism. They have a delusion in their mind of what they are; they see themselves as a fantastic gift to the world. But, if people are allowed to judge them on their moral failings then they will always be reminded that they are not all that impressive. So, they seek to control the views and speech of others.
While they speak constantly of acceptance, they rely on zealotry to achieve their objectives. They are highly intolerant of people who do not want to participate in their movement or their activism. In fact, one of the most used protest slogans of the political left is “silence is violence.” By refusing to support them, or by keeping to yourself, you automatically become their enemy even if you don’t directly oppose them.
At bottom what leftists really promote is a series of double standards while using accusations of bigotry as a weapon to silence their critics. They have taken control of the narrative because many Americans are afraid to say the truth out loud. The truth is, tolerance is overrated and destructive. Gatekeeping and discrimination, to a certain degree, are absolutely essential to the survival of humanity.
That is to say, intolerance of certain people, beliefs, actions and ideologies is a good thing. We need to bring back rational intolerance.
There are people within the liberty movement and conservative circles that hold more libertarian views on this issue and some of them might suggest that my position runs contrary to the concept of the non-aggression principle. They might say that as long as people are not harming us directly then we should stay out of their way. I say there is a fine line between tolerance and submissive pacifism.
Obviously the globalist establishment and their puppets within the political left are relying on provocateur tactics to a certain degree. One might suggest that they WANT us to lash out violently so they can demonize us further, or they want us to embrace government power more fully so they can paint us as authoritarian. This is a simplistic grade-school view of provocateur methods, though. In reality, the goal of provocateurs is not to get us to react, their goal is to frighten us into DOING NOTHING.
Look at the circus surrounding January 6th, for example. The establishment turned a protest of unarmed people who walked into a building and then left of their own accord into an “insurrection.” Did some people get violent? Of course, though not a single person died because of the actions of protesters. Was there property damage? Nothing compared to the billions in damages caused by the BLM and Antifa riots. But conservative protesters are being labeled enemies of the state and are being locked up right now while BLM is labeled “mostly peaceful.”
The double standard is clear, but the reason for it is often misunderstood. They do not want liberty movement organization. They do not want planned actions. They do not want open marches by conservatives. They do not want the world to see our numbers. They wants us silent and complacent and uninvolved. Provoking a reaction is not the end game. The double standard is not the end game. The end game is for conservatives to give up because they fear the double standard.
Every strategy of the left circles back around to pacification of the population, whether they are accusing us of racism or transphobia or fascism or insurrection. None of this matters. The moment we abandon the fallacies of tolerance and block destructive efforts is the moment we become truly free and effective. There are certain situations in which the non-aggression principle does not apply.
Currently, the US is experiencing full blown 4th Generation warfare. In the span of less than a decade we have seen the imposition of Critical Race Theory, trans ideology, Marxism and a spectrum of progressive concepts invade public schools. American children are being indoctrinated into the leftist fold in a dizzying propaganda blitzkrieg.
Now, the libertarian mindset would suggest that we simply pull our kids out of public schools and remove our participation. That might work for some people, but the vast majority of parents are going to continue placing their kids in schools because they feel they have no other choice. We don’t have the time needed to create new educational systems and alternatives. School vouchers are a start, but even then it would take well over a decade for parents to adjust. The only answer is to shut down the indoctrination, by force if necessary.
Leftist teachers that promote their ideology in class need to be removed from publicly funded schools. CRT, gender fluid propaganda, and one sided socialist concepts will have to be banned from these institutions. Drag shows for kids need to be punished. Gender affirmation surgeries and chemical therapies for children need to be abolished. The invasion of woke disinformation into our media needs to be confronted and companies that promote it should be buried through boycotts.
Tolerance is killing us. Intolerance is the answer. While certain ideological movements might not target you personally, they will eventually destroy everything you love through attrition. And it’s never going to stop, because moral relativism is always finding new ground to desecrate.
You will not be allowed to have principles. You won’t be allowed to call out bad behaviors. Everything evil will be made acceptable. If you really want to know where we are headed as a civilization, check out this trend being protected by courts in Pennsylvania – Satanic clubs for elementary school children at public schools. Some of these clubs are already active.
The first inclination of those of us that defend constitutional values would be to cite religious freedom. Of course, satanic and luciferian groups consistently argue that they are NOT a religion, per se. Rather they claim they are an ideological system. The reason the “After School Satan Club” uses the satanic moniker is because it is by definition religiously related. An ideological club is not necessarily protected by US courts. A religious club is protected. But should this apply to every religious club?
In a way, it makes sense that this would be the natural evolution of leftist conquest. Eventually they are going to need some kind of religious framework to fill the void that politics leaves behind. And what better “religion” than one that is founded in the belief of subjective morality and self obsession?
In this specific instance, I don’t accept that a cult built around promoting narcissism, moral relativism and transhumanism should be allowed around children. I think that communities should gather up their torches and pitchforks and run these people out of town, but that’s just me.
Is this intolerant? Intolerance of behavior rooted in deconstruction is absolutely necessary. Whether you are a religious person or agnostic or atheist, it is undeniable that some methodologies encompass the absolute worst in humanity and should not be embraced. The narrative of tolerance is leading us down a path to quiet compliance and consent.
The political left and the globalist establishment like to play games with our principles. It’s the old Alinsky tactic of holding your opponents to their own list of standards while you operate with no standards. That is to say, they use our love of freedom against us and suggest we must allow them to do what they want or we are not living up to the rules we value.
However, it’s not authoritarian to protect the next generation from indoctrination and it’s not hypocrisy to discriminate against the dark side. If that makes me a bigot, so be it. I would rather live in a civilization of reasonable bigots than watch the world burn in the name of foolish “equity.”
“Equity” is the reality inversion that ends with everyone being equally dead by democide.
Do NOT comply.

TIME FOR THE RECKONING OF THE BIDEN CRIME FAMILY…GLEN BECK AND MARK LEVIN. NOW IS THE TIME. PLEASE, PLEASE WATCH.
What can citizens do?
Beck asked Americans to take action by visitinghttp://thereckoningguide.com and downloading his dossier on the “Biden Crime Family” to see the documents for themselves.
He also asked viewers to take additional action.
“We need you to flood the phone lines and email inboxes of every prosecutor or attorney general with the power to prosecute these crimes. The only way these officials will take action is if the pressure becomes so great they can no longer ignore us,” said Beck on the program.
“Contact them today, and if they don’t respond, send them another email. And then another,” he added. “And keep going until you are heard. And if they give you an unsatisfactory answer, keep at it. That’s what we’re doing here.”
Biden…an embarrassment to this country. Getting what he deserves (but far from enough)….how much longer can he last? Less than a minute!
Good Gawd Almighty help us!!!~
No enough sense to get out of the rain or raise his umbrella…..THIS REPRESENTS US….PULEASSE let the impeachment begin:
I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU TO WATCH THIS AND NOT BE DISGUSTED, ASHAMED AND ANGRY ABOUT THE COUNTRY IN WHICH WE NOW EXIST. LESS THAN 5 MINUTES: (BLAME NO ONE BUT OURSELVES FOR ALLOWING THIS TO HAPPEN…yeah, sure no one likes to hear it…neither do I, but we are at fault allowing this to continue)
Once again, the DOJ is stepping in o protect the most corrupt administration in American history.
JUST IN: DOJ Reportedly Removes IRS Whistleblower & Team From Hunter Biden Tax Investigation
According to multiple reports, the Department of Justice removed an IRS whistleblower and the “entire investigative team” from a tax fraud investigation into Hunter Biden.
In a letter written to Congress, the whistleblower’s attorneys alleged it as a retaliatory act.
“Today the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Criminal Supervisory Special Agent we represent was informed that he and his entire investigative team are being removed from the ongoing and sensitive investigation of the high-profile, controversial subject about which our client sought to make whistleblower disclosures to Congress. He was informed the change was at the request of the Department of Justice,” Mark Lytle and Tristan Leavitt wrote.
WTF….. WTF….. WTF!!!!!!!
Good point about “traditional” leftism, GRB. I am wary of the Marxist label put forward by many in the alternative and conservative media to describe these “wokesters” and “cancel kings”. Karl Marx believed in worker control over factories, elimination of private property, and a classless society with limited inheritance, free education, etc. His message/philosophy was an economic one, formed by his observations as a journalist about the exploitation of the working class in the 19th Century in combination with his Hegelian historical/philosophical bent. While his philosophy may be criticized on a number of grounds, including its economic naivete, over-focus on economic determinism, and practical failure, he was not a totalitarian or a social deviant in any sense of the word. He believed in free speech and limited government and was evidently a good family man–although he did criticize what he considered the “bourgeois” concept of family. By contrast, the philosophy of the globalist elites is about totalitarian power for the bankers and other wealthy elites, impoverishment of the masses, restrictions on free speech and other civil liberties, dissolution of traditional family values, and subverting the working classes by dividing them along racial, ethnic, and religious lines. IMHO, Marx would be aghast at the “drag queen” story times and “Satanic” student clubs and other such bizarre phenomena promoted by the New World Order.
The Communist government of China is purchasing thousands of acres of prime farming land inside the USA. Why? These are the staging and landing areas for an eventual massive invasion of the USA.
China has a long range goal of the total destruction of the USA. Included in this is the burning of the US Constitution and a replacement with the Communist Manifesto in Washington DC.
Biden and family have been paid millions of dollars to keep their mouths shut about this. This is a well known fact.
At least we get some relief:
“The American Public Was Scammed”: Trump Responds After Bomshell Durham Report ‘Exonerates’
“Update (1850ET): Former President Donald Trump on Monday has responded through a spokesman, saying that the report “proves” a coordinated effort by the federal government to interfere with the 2016 US election.”
….not many politicians have the gonads to say that. Of course, the MSM will turn it into garbage.
I could not agree more with this writer. And yet I can easily imagine a place called Hellertown hosting a Satanic Club for kids. Maybe they should change the name of the place to Eden. There’s an Eden, Utah and an Eden, Wyoming. I have been through both of them. Nice places. I don’t ever picture them allowing a Satanic School Club to form. This story is just beyond belief.
I heard a new acronym today… ESG… anyone hear heard of this jive yet? It’s a merger of Environmental extremism, Social Justice and Governance that must be totalitarian by nature. The attack on civilization, sanity and anything traditional is so multi-faceted I failed to ever hear about ESG. But it’s impact is huge and it’s driving force is outfits like Black Rock, Vanguard and State Street. They are the ones wielding incredible leverage on companies to comply with the communist agenda of shutting down the energy sector and food production; jamming the LGBT ideology down our throats. I bet they would also wholeheartedly endorse the Satan Club for Kids.
I think you’ll would find this information alarming yet valuable. It’s got some high production values. I had no idea how far this thing has advanced. There’s a bunch of States that are pushing back. Check it out.
Thanks for putting this up, Jim….ZH wanted a premium account to read it. Someone had to say it and Smith said it well. The hell with this tolerant and defensive stance. What war was ever won by sitting there and taking blow after blow? There may have been a time to turn the other cheek for one reason o another. But those days are long past and I am out of cheeks. Even Christ overturned the tables of the money changers. I don’t want the pervs “overturned”, I just want them out of my face and my grand childrens faces. Send them back to the dark hole from whence they emerged. Stop buying from the companies that support them. Stop watching movies that just have to have them in prominent roles. Free speech does not include having them telling 5 year olds the intricacies of blow jobs, cunnilingus, sexual transitioning and after school satan clubs. Anyone and I mean anyone, including parents, that allow or participate in this sickness should be imprisoned for child abuse.
And, no, I am no prude. What I do in privacy is MY business….and that is where it all belongs….in privacy away from innocent eyes and minds. Take all this to it’s end result and what we have is hell on earth….and we’re getting too damn close.
Perverted sex education in US schools is promoted by the Chinese Communist Party. This is one of many of the CCP’s projects in the USA, along with open borders, to destroy the USA from inside.
DeSantis has done it again. Not that I agree with certain things he has been involved with of late, but this is a big plus. I tell you friends, it’s good to be in Florida. Not that I would ever use a credit card to buy a weapon. One can still buy from a private entity in Florida without registration AND, for CASH. But, banning digital bucks in Florida goes a long way……..especially with all the retirees depending upon SS. If they are like me, they get that deposited SS check out of the bank ASAP. CASH WILL ALWAYS BE KING…at least in the Sunshine State.
DeSantis Bans ‘Digital Dollar’ in Florida, Blocks Credit Card Companies Tracking Gun Purchases
“DeSantis signed legislation into law this week that bans a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) from ever being introduced in the state of Florida.”
This is a big problem. I don’t know if these people are genuine leftists in the traditional sense of the word. Low information voters and fraudsters are a better fit. They tend to be brainwashed by the MSM, and often extremely uninformed. They may not even know this type of think is going on. It’s very hard to have an intelligent conversation with one. They are captives of jingoism, who have very little or no evidence of anything they say. An example would by the CNN propagandist posing as a “reporter” at Trump’s alleged “Town Hall.” She badgered him about the fraudulent 2020 election claiming there is no evidence of fraud, when just the opposite is true. Election fraud was a major problem, and it’s the reason we have a demented fool in the White House now. There was a mountain of evidence election anomalies but no court would allow it to be heard. This rude repulsive woman badgered Trump not talk about fraud in the 2024 race. Why wouldn’t he? She would have done better to ask, “President Trump it’s obvious that election fraud played a major role in the 2020 selection of Demented Joe. What is your proposal to overcome the constant fraud and misinformation used against you by your Satanic sociopathic Democrat opponents who have done so much damage to the country?”
