Leftists Scratch Their Heads As More Abandon Their Ranks

Issues & Insights

The only thing more uplifting than watching several prominent liberals drift rightward is the cluelessness of those on the left as to why it’s happening.

This drift is obvious enough, since it includes journalists once heralded by the left such as Matt Taibbi (who won a Young America’s Foundation award) and Glenn Greenwald, and Democratic politicians, including Tulsi Gabbard, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (whose speech at a Daily Caller award ceremony drew many loud cheers from the conservative audience), and Sen. John Fetterman (who recently declared that “I am not a progressive”).

Celebrities such as Russell Brand, David Chappelle, and Bill Maher (who “has been riding an asphalt roller over the far left,” according to Townhall) are part of the shift, as are a handful of prominent business leaders, Elon Musk for instance.

That’s to say nothing of the fact that surveys show once tried-and-true liberal constituencies – Hispanics, Asians, blacks, working class, and the young – are abandoning the Democratic party.:snip:

Another is that “the culture of the left is simply less welcoming,” and “people go where people accept them, or are nice to them, and away from people who are mean to them.” (An incredibly odd admission given that the left is supposedly all about “diversity” and “inclusion.”)

But then Goldberg settles on the notion that “Liberals and leftists have lots of excellent policy ideas, but rarely articulate a plausible vision of the future.”

Translation: Even though the left controls every major institution in the country, most notably the news media, it just needs better public relations.

 

Goldberg’s column was inspired by a 5,700-word behemoth by Kathryn Joyce and Jeff Sharlet in the far-left In These Times about the same topic.

These two start by saying that “It’s easy to dismiss many of these high-profile defectors as crackpots or spotlight-seekers, as never truly serious in their political principles or as plain grifters.”

But, after much mental exertion they decide that “Maybe there’s a kind of gravity to the slide, the black hole of fascism sucking toward it all the loose particles of those whose commitments were never complex or whose convictions were snapped by despair.

“That’s what makes fascism so scary when it genuinely flares. It consumes. It grows.”

When in doubt, the left always invokes fascism, ignorant of the fact that national socialism is a leftist dream, not a conservative one.

In any case, the reason the left is puzzled is because it’s so completely blind to the poisonous fruit of its own ideology, something that is finally dawning on common-sense Americans."

Very seldom watch programming with commercials. The last few days Mr G has been watch LOR reruns while recuperaing. Multiple Planned Parenthood commercials lamenting that they can't believe that the right is taking away the control of your body etc etc etc. Don't mention the word abortion. Maybe because of the thread I posted here somewhere that talks about how much of their revenue is now generated from sex reassignment. Ya- their not about the money- right!!

Right from the start Planned Parenthood has been Evil. Racism, Eugenics, Killing babies, now Chopping Off Body parts. It would not surprise me to find they are selling those parts.
