  • The Right's Self-inflicted Political Wounds

    The title of this thread is the title of an article from the American Thinker web site. It's a great article on how we on the political right have allowed the left to define everything political and in so doing are accomplices to the political indoctrination that is, and has been, going on in this nation.

    We all are accomplices to the Left's political crime of indoctrination. We were the ones who accepted the myth that leftists are "liberals." We were the ones who accepted the hoax that Republicans (and right-wingers in general) are associated with the color red. We were the ones who became obsessed with the fairness of the "mainstream media."
    So they like to be called "liberals"? There is nothing liberal in the non-tolerant, neo-Marxist Democratic Party, who borrowed the idea of Antifa from Benito Mussolini's Blackshirts. The ideas of classical liberalism of the 18th century, and liberalism of American's Founding Fathers, are referred to in the 21st century as conservatism. Conservatives are the true heirs to the title of liberalism. Anytime we call leftists "liberals," we incur a self-inflicted political wound.
    Are right-wingers "red"? It is well known that the color red is traditionally assigned to the leftists (Marxists, socialists, communists, fascists, Democrats, Trotskyists, Maoists, and others). The attempt to map red to right-wingers happened relatively recently — back in 2000 — and it stuck. Remember the massive "red wave" versus "blue wave" agitprop during the 2018 elections? Any time we cheered the "red wave," we incurred a self-inflicted political wound, because traditionally, red was the color of the enemy.
    "Mainstream media"? There is nothing mainstream about the far-left outlets in our center-right country. Referring to them as "media" does them a favor and provides them a cover, for they are just propaganda outlets serving their masters from the Democratic Party and a multitude of other American left-wing parties.
    There are many other examples; some of them are relatively new, but some are pretty old.
    Associating the National Socialism of the Third Reich with right-wing ideology was a smart trick they pulled, and it affected a lot of unsuspecting people. They converted universities into Marxist indoctrination centers while leaving the original name intact, thus confusing even more people. They created the U.N. under the pretense of "solving international problems" without telling us it is just a branch of the Socialist International on American soil. (Most people do not know that the Presidium of the SocIntern traditionally happens on the premises of the U.N. and at the same time as the U.N. General Assembly.) In the 1970s they pushed for a "global cooling" narrative (which in the 1990s was substituted by "global warming," and then in the 2000s with "climate change") without telling people it is just a novel scheme for world wealth redistribution.
