More wisdom from LGF

Charles is great for digging up good quotes. This is one that I find applies particularly well to the left:

If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about the answers.

Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow

A great deal of leftist sophistry is founded upon faulty, yet unexamined, assumptions. If a leftist can trick someone into buying into certain assumptions, then the erroneous conclusions that follow from those assumptions are a simple matter of logic. This is part of what makes their nonsense so pernicious. The vast majority of people are simply not perceptive enough to see through to those assumptions and realize that they are bunk. Some will intuitively sense that they are being had, but there are many who will not, especially if they are surrounded by it every day. It is unfortunate that too few people really try to understand things.

DOJ Prosecuting Those Who Enunciate the Law

At what point is the political process in America so compromised that it ceases to have any validity? When the power of the government is no longer derived from the consent of the governed, the result is tyranny. Why should I, or anyone else, submit to the will of a state that has no legitimate authority?

Back in 2000 when the lefties were going into hysterics over the non-existent fraud they claimed gave Bush in the white house, I thought they were simply engaging in theatrics as usual. But as time has gone by I've come to realize that what I thought was calculated manipulation was in fact what psychologists call projection.

What the left sees when it looks to the center is a reflection. When they scream about racism it is because they are racist. When they scream about oppression it is because they are oppressors. When they scream about voting fraud, it is because they wrote the book on it.

They learned long ago that the American people would never knowingly vote them into power. Therefore they engage in various deceptions in order to trick voters. The first of these is to obscure their agenda, or to describe it in the most oblique terms. Obama is a poster-child for this tactic. This deception is able to fool some of the people all of the time. But by itself it is not sufficient to give them a ruling majority, no matter how hard they spin or how complicit the media is in their deception.

Because they cannot sell the American people on their ideology and the policies that derive from it, they have sought to, as Bertrand Russell put it, "elect a new people." Illegal aliens, dead people,, fraudulent registrations, multiple registrations in different districts, all serve to undermine the will of the American people and replace it with the will of leftist operatives and the alien invaders who are drinking from their trough. At one point the left might have been subtle in going about this, but in recent years they have become far more blatant. I don't know whether this smacks of confidence or desperation.

What I do know is that if they are allowed to get away with this, the US will cease to exist. The left will have succeeded in doing what no foreign power has ever come close to accomplishing: the destruction of our republic. These people are traitors and enemies of the worst kind, and should be treated accordingly.

Any state agency that seeks to persecute a citizen for informing the public of the law as it is written is an instrument of evil and tyranny. There really isn't any other way to put it.
