Conservatives evil, progressives good?
Many modern leftists truly believe that conservatives are evil. They can see no other reason why somebody would wish to deny other human beings free...well, anything. They fail to understand how someone would risk depriving others of their "right" to live anywhere they want, have everything that anyone else has, choose their own gender or genders — and be free from the consequences of their own actions.
In this way, they actually are evil, or, at minimum, the consequences of their beliefs and actions, even though they choose not to acknowledge them, are consistently, historically, evil. To those they (inadvertently?) victimize, this is a distinction without a difference. I know that this is a difficult concept for a decent person to grasp, but it is factually so, nonetheless.
These leftists claim that conservatives are evil, and I claim they are evil, so obviously we are equally wrong — or right, depending on one's perspective, no? This is clearly not how the mainstream media, academia, and Big Tech see things. To the Media-Academic Complex, everything those on the left side of the political spectrum believe, do, and propose is for purely altruistic reasons, while everything those on the right side of the political spectrum believe, do, and propose is done out of intolerance, bigotry, greed, or sheer spite.
Leftists impose their will on others because they purport to believe they know what's best for them. They are the anti-Framers. This is why they slander the Founders, disdain the Constitution, and demand that statues and murals depicting them be removed. They would replace the Declaration of Independence with near total dependence on the State, meaning those like themselves. They try to repeal Natural Law and the inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness — granted to us all by the Creator — by saying equality of outcome supersedes equality of opportunity, and that God doesn't really exist, is only a construct of ignorant, superstitious, backward rubes in rural wastelands.
They do this so they can replace God with themselves and Judeo-Christianity with the hyper-fundamentalist religions of Marxism-socialism and secularism. As Churchill said of the ultra-pompous Sir Stafford Cripps, "There but for the grace of God goes God."
Communism extinguished over 100 million souls in the twentieth century alone. It has destroyed the lives of countless others in the two decades since. Western leftists should take a good look at the "quality of life" in "s-hole countries" like Cuba, North Korea, and Venezuela, but of course they won't. They are too busy denigrating the U.S.'s capitalist, free market system that feeds and donates money to much of the rest of the world's nations to admit that there is a low quality of life — and often no life at all for dissenters — in these glorious "People's Republics."
The United States was "born" by declaring that every person is born with equal rights to pursue human happiness and dignity...and that our rights come from God, not Rod...or Donald, Alexandria, Bernie, Joe, Elizabeth, or Hillary. Far too many progressives and nearly all leftists believe that they and they alone are qualified to bestow rights upon others. They may disdain authority and the successful, yet they act as priest and pastor, judge, jury, and executioner. They are the would-be arbiters of our freedoms, secret police waiting for us to carelessly use an incorrect pronoun to address someone in the "nanogender community" or declare that we aren't convinced that climate change is entirely driven by human activity. They reject the idea of a higher power but are certain we — who could not ask to be created and cannot create ourselves — can choose our own sex.
