The Useful Idiocy of the Left
By Duncan Whitmore
The typical libertarian is unlikely to open his YouTube account or Twitter feed without encountering a cascade of material in which a) the left is drawing attention to itself in a loud and obnoxious manner; and b) libertarians, conservatives and their fellow travellers are castigating the left for whatever it is doing. Given all of this attention paid to the left one would have thought that they must have something important to say. Let us look at a few recent examples to see if this is true.
On August 11th it was reported in the news that around a hundred or so protestors had appeared in the constituency of Conservative MP Andrew Griffiths to demand his resignation. No doubt the motivation of a small crowd of Mr Griffiths’ constituents to give up their afternoon and don placards calling for his head owed itself to something extremely serious. After all, surely we would only bother to march through the streets to protest if the matter was as grave as an illegal war, right?
Actually, the flames of fury were ignited by something altogether less serious. Mr Griffiths, who is married, had been sending a considerable volume of lewd text messages to two barmaids, the contents of which were published by the Sunday Mirror. The high crime which had fuelled the protestors’ rage was that Mr Griffiths is a “misogynist”, the protest calling for nothing more than a rejection of his “behaviour and attitudes”. Read more
Sex was invented in 1963 – roughly when he was born – in order to put him in power in 2008. 45 years is all it took, to bring down The City On The Hill (You idiots! Asleep! Isolationism! You let the GramscoFabiaNazis into your patch, when you might have got away with locking them out just on ours…):-
But at least human beings can bugger these FabioDroids up. Listen up, people: it matters to us in other nations who is the President of the USA. The right one, and we shall be all right – the wrong one, and we shall all fail including you:-
You people in North America clearly did not get it right in 2008.
I shall be writing, in the next few days, perhaps, or perhaps not, about why the next US President, and subsequent ones, should be chosen by the Executive Committee of the Libertarian Alliance, UK, London-Kent-Scotland-and-Lancashire, England.
I was encouraged by this here.
But I’m not holding my breath: traditionally, Good People do not make the first move against bad. This is sad and regrettable.
But this time, just for once, could it be different? Could we eat the GFNs, before they bankrupt, starve and freeze us?
President Obama has been awarded the Nobel “Peace Prize”.
Look, I just gve up. I have continually warned the American people about this man – even to the extent of how he used sex, the enjoyment of which is a liberal capitalist property of Free Individuals and not of GFNs (who use it to enslave), to sell his election, even. And now, you all just sit and watch calmly, while he collects a “prize” commonly awarded to stalinists and terrorists, for the valour of their acts in the great pageant of destruction of Western liberal civilisation (there is no other sort of civilisation: sorry. And I know I am right.)
And isn’t the scrag-doid in this movie the evil, wicked and deliberately-stalinist-murdering-butcher Michael Moore?
You have to admire the man’s cunning.
In the final reality it does not matter if the UK is “at the top table”, whatever that is, so long as we are a free people. Places like Western Samoa and Finland do all right without the clout.
We could be like Norway, but with nuclear weapons and without the heavy taxation and big-state.
