Conservative on Target! 1/9/13

The Left's Greatest Mind-Trick: Politicizing Emotion: Running counter to this history of social disaster, the Constitution is the pinnacle of reasoned political science and the legal barricade against the mob mentality that drives majoritarian democracy.  Demagogues arise under such a system of government, because they promise the majority the spoils of government looting, meanwhile stoking the flames of populist passions. The rule of law and the scientific method were developed precisely to protect human beings from the hazards of acting on raw emotion and ignorance.  Democratic politicians and left-wing activists, on the other hand, thrive on these human vulnerabilities.



“The government is good at one thing. It knows how to break your legs, and then hand you a crutch and say, ‘See if it weren’t for the government, you wouldn’t be able to walk.’” -- Harry Browne

Leftist America: Obama Opponents ‘A–Holes’
   This week’s column is brought to you by the word “a–holes.” It’s one of the left’s favorite words these days, fond as they are of shutting down the debate and casting their political opponents out like lepers.
   Take, for example, the website Gawker. The website is liberal. And as liberal Obama backers, they feel the necessity not only to support the Obama agenda, but also silence those on the other side through bully tactics. Hence their decision this week to publish a full list of all the registered gun owners in New York City. The title of their big reveal: “Here Is a List of All The A–holes Who Own Guns in New York City.” That’s an inaccurate title, of course — the worst people who own guns in New York City likely own them illegally. But it fits with the leftist conceit that those who disagree on gun policy are just bad people...
   The left has become a collection of bullies, knee-jerk moralists without the morality. They aren’t interested in the best policy. They’re just interested in the glow they feel when they self-perceive as having defended a “victimized group.” Too bad the only real victims are those who end up on the short end of their insulting cretinism.
