Reader “Re-Farmer” hit the nail right on the head yesterday, when she commented on the “cultural psychopathy” of liberals. See her full comment under the post, “Yet Another Censorship Tactic.”
“Their alternate reality is whatever they believe it is,” she said. Bull’s eye. And that’s the whole thing in a nutshell. They have their own reality, and anyone who doesn’t embrace it as reality must be an enemy, and worthy of destruction.
A lot of people now consider leftism to be a mental illness. Like, if you have your own reality that’s different from the real reality, that does mean you’re crazy–right? When a man says, “I am a woman”; when a Democrat says “Donald Trump is trying to install a white supremacist government”; when Elizabeth Warren says, “I am a Native American”; when a liberal insists that any disagreement with his point of view constitutes violence, or criminal assault–well, those are all loopy things to say, and leftids say them all the time.
Try an experiment. Sign up one or two libs as Facebook friends and watch what they do to your page. Go ahead, try it.
But it’s more than just plain mental illness. Much more. I have come to believe that leftism is a truly satanic enterprise. What, after all, did the serpent say to tempt Eve in the garden? “Ye shall not surely die; for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:4-5) And down the hatch went the forbidden fruit, and into the world came sin and death.
Well, you can hardly be more like a god than by defining reality, can you? If you say someone is a racist, poof–! He’s a racist. If you say Trump is operating a network of concentration camps and carrying out ethnic cleansing–presto! It is so. And anyone who won’t go along, word for word and letter for letter, with every single thing you say–well, he must be a biggit!
As C.S. Lewis warned us in That Hideous Strength, the ultimate goal of the satanic enterprise is the total erasure of life on earth–of God’s creation. That is the natural end of leftism.
And just because they’re too full of themselves to know or understand what they’re working for, doesn’t mean it isn’t so.
