who has published conservative articles on the Internet, if
he pulls no punches and if he reads his email, will find himself
deluged with "love letters" from Leftists. My series
of articles on bigotry and hatred directed toward Christianity
has produced a record crop of "love letters."
Although this will
astound Leftists, we on the Right disagree on many issues. We
are, after all, a motley crew - rather like the coalition of
nations and peoples that opposed Hitler. Within the broad umbrella
of "conservatives" are libertarians, Christians, objectivist
atheists, Orthodox Jews and the many, many victims of Leftist
hate over the last half century.
send me e-mails which disagree with my opinions are easy to
identify. Our correspondence is brief, honest and civil. More
often than not, we agree to disagree - and without rancor or
venom. Personal conscience is the salient characteristic of
the political right. "Love letters" from Leftists
are completely different. These "love letters" fall
into predictable patterns.
personal! Leftists want power, no truth. They want to crush
those with different opinion, not persuade those who disagree.
If people are cowed into silence then not only has the Leftist
won the debate, but he has convinced others that there is simply
nothing to debate. Insult, snicker and defame.
Picture those who
question the Leftist monopoly on truth and morality just as
a good Leftist working for Himmler would picture a stereotypical
Jew before the Nazis savagely murdered the Jew. Anyone who holds
a conservative position - after you and your friends have gone
to the trouble of lecturing and hectoring him for years and
years - must simply be ignorant, dumb, bigoted or evil.
The Leftist ad hominem
attack need not be bounded by logic. Hitler and his fellow Leftists
had no problem simultaneously describing Jews as stupid and
clever, as inferior and powerful. What is good enough for the
Leftist leaders of Nazi Germany is good enough for modern Leftists.
get specific. I cannot overemphasize this enough. Ann Coulter
wrote a book which single-handedly dismantles a generation of
Leftist mythology. Her challenge to Leftist interviewers? Identify
one single person wrongly and unjustly accused by Senator Joe
McCarthy of being sympathetic to communism.
No Leftist ever
found one, because none exist. The critical significance of
this fact, however, was largely lost on the American public
because Leftists wisely chose to never even attempt to come
up with an actual specific instance of wrongful accusation by
back on unprovable assumptions. Anti-Semites, who infest
the Left, can always demand that conservatives prove that tripe
like the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and the concomitant
"Jewish conspiracy" does not exist. Any proof will
only expose to a Leftist the cleverness of the plot.
can post the faces of male college students with the statement
underneath "potential rapists." Black opportunists
can simply yell "Racist!" and expect others to respond
with proof of non-racism. It is easy and requires no special
skill, wit or knowledge.
Lie and lie and lie. Truth, after all, is an illusion. Those
subjective "truths" which matter are already known
to Leftists: War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is
Strength. Why trouble yourself with "details"? Leftists
plagiarize, pilfer and pervert any datum which would undermine
their grand truth - and why not! If you have a monopoly on truth,
then what is the point of getting into the petty business of
your beliefs. Take your cue from all the "moderates"
and "progressives" who stopped being "liberals"
about the same time that people figured out what "liberals"
supported. Masking your preconceptions is a marvelous way to
avoid getting into the meat of arguments. You stand for social
justice (or something like that) and conservatives stand for
logic. This has been well refined in academia. Logic and
coherent thought are all part of the VRWC or of the "Jewish
cabalists" or of "Patriarchal rulers" or - well,
fill in the blank, it doesn’t matter - the principal point
is to challenge the very idea that words have meaning, that
thoughts be consistent or that the secular religion of Leftism
can be disproved by any means at all.
well documented brutal rape of Juanita Broaddrick is not important
because it is only the word of a woman against a man, but Anita
Hill’s undocumented charges against Clarence Thomas for
actions much less serious were vital. One was a Leftist and
the other a conservative. What is hard about that?
for nothing. It is almost impossible to overstate the vital
importance of this last rule. Archimedes once said "Give
me a place to stand, and I will move the world." Well,
that just shows how dangerous consistent principles can be!
Stand for nothing except an insatiable lust for power, and no
constant virtue or vice can affect your behavior.
is nothing new, nothing "progressive," and nothing
"liberal." Anyone who has correspondence with a Leftist
quickly learns that. Leftists stand for nothing and against
everything that stands in the way of their power. Their "love
letters" show this perfectly, and each one I revise is
like a version of the famous World War Two films "Why We
Fight." We fight because the Left is manifestly indifferent
to any notion of truth or compassion.
