How leftists become bullies

Postby Gone_Fishin » Dec 4th, 2018, 5:53 am

This is exactly what's occurring in Canadian schools, and society, pushed by the likes of Justin Trudeau. Remember Catherine McKenna's "I have no time for those with a view different from mine" (para)? Just look at the leftists on this board, should you need an example or twenty.

Conservative tears... at least she realizes her opinions are the minority among her peers. Older conservatives actually believe they have broad support and the world isn't moving forward from their outdated views. Regardless of age when your political party/beliefs are the minority/unpopular opinions, often classist, racist or feer based people aren't going to want to humour you and listen to your nonsense. You can speak all you want but that doesn't mean the majority have to give your opinions much weight or attention. Let your drunk uncle ramble about muslims, natives, socialism etc. then move forward.

The Pot is calling the Kettle black, but the Kettle calls the Pot black just as much.

Yes, it goes on from both sides. I gently tease GF though.

I could easily come up with twenty of your posts only they're all "removed."

So true.Like a religious cult, they are so entrenched and hypnotized into their world view that any challengers are dismissed and mocked and any logic used against them threatens their beliefs. They do not want to engaged because they might lose the argument. So instead they launch personal attacks on the challengers themselves rather than on the logic presented. This way they can hang on to what they belief and continue to hold power over others, pushing their beliefs on others. We see it all the time, especially in the media who are a part of this cult-like movement where all challengers are stonewalled and silenced. Where anything good Trump does is suppressed and not reported Fortunately the media is losing it control because of the internet . People are starting to see through this charade. There are many naive and gullible people who become useful idiots for their cause. Like a cult or extremist religion, young people are being indoctrinated. President Trump is constantly attacked personally in order to discredit and dismiss him. Unfortunately our Liberals lead by Trudeau are a part of this. This alleged man made climate change is actually a way to distribute wealth and find new sources of energy for the underdeveloped nations. Their collective guilt of our great standard of living is what motivates them. Already we can see that our standard of living is starting to decline as we are taxed more and more in order to redistribute our wealth. Trudeau has been giving away billions of our tax money to others while Canadians suffer with homelessness, long surgery wait lists, poor water supplies , etc. Un-vetted people from poor nations are being let in to the country so we can take care of them. However, there is a thing called carrying capacity and once that limit is breached, we all suffer. Canada may seem like a huge country but we are actually small because the north is so cold and inhospitable to many. Short growing seasons for food etc. The Trudeau Liberals are destroying our country and nobody can really do anything about it except possibly in the next election. Lets hope they are given the boot.

Pretty narrow non fact based perspective.

The reality is that both the far left AND the far right are ideologically constipated. We have the far left ideologues with their entrenched Marxist based fixed set of worldviews, and we have the far right worshipers of supply side authoritarian stuff and out to neo-fascists.. Both are incorrect. Both want to impose their views on all.

In terms of people seeking refugee status, I would remind you that these are people. They are not the "other". They are people, just like you and I. Yes, our system has been overwhelmed by a surge caused by Trumpian nonsense racism. But we will get through that, and it will subside. Many are being rejected, but many folks we are receiving are indeed genuine people fleeing death, torture, rape etc. in messed up countries. Should we be so dismissive of others and not lend them a hand?? Does not the Trumpian racist nonsense qualify as bullying? Certainly seems so. Should Canadians abandon their values and react in Trumpian racist ways because we have a temporary problem? Methinks not. Ask yourself honestly, if these refugees were coming from Norway would you be reacting the same way?? Just because Trump is being mean, nasty and petty does not mean that we should follow suit.

If you bothered to actually look up the facts, you would find that considerable work has been done on improving drinking water quality under the current government. Yes, not all have issues have been solved. For example, the issue of drinking water on reserves was thought to be "x" number of cases to solve, and the target was set to resolve all of those, but more careful testing (sometimes for the first time) revealed tat the drinking water problem on reserves was much more prevalent than anyone suspected, so while the target number of cases has been solved, the total number of unresolved cases has barely come down. There are of course other cases of poor quality drinking water that are being resolved, but they don't happen overnight. This one is a good example of where the feds have stepped up, but the work is not yet complete: https://www.sekid.ca/water-quality/wq-improvement-program/ - so there is no case to made that these issues are being ignored. More has been done in the last 3 years than was done in the previous decade.

I could go on, but those two points may or may not better help to understand the balance. That really is what governance is all about, balancing things for ALL Canadians, and it is hard to fault the Liberals from that perspective.

They always were. The trick was getting their under-educated dupes to believe they couldn’t trust mainstream news and had to get the ‘truth” internet bloggers, conspiracy theorists and the tweets of an imbecilic mad man. The rest was easy. Already constrained by the inability to consider ideas contrary to their partisan beliefs, they would just repeat what they heard and send it to all their Facebook friends for wide distribution. The irony is the loudest complainers of “fake news” generate the most of it.

watch for the mimicry, it's the best some can manage

Except that it leaves out the very OPs statements so how do Right winger become bullies? Or do we need a separate thread for that one?
