Ten Reasons Why I Am
No Longer a Leftist

American Thinker, by Danusha V. Goska

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/20/2014 4:22:28 AM

How far left was I? So far left my beloved uncle was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party in a Communist country. When I returned to his Slovak village to buy him a mass card, the priest refused to sell me one. So far left that a self-identified terrorist proposed marriage to me. So far left I was a two-time Peace Corps volunteer and I have a degree from UC Berkeley. So far left that my Teamster mother used to tell anyone who would listen that she voted for Gus Hall, Communist Party chairman, for president. I wore a

Agree with #3, make this a must read. The actions of the Left are pure Evil.

From Psalm 36:
Sin speaks to the sinner in the depth of his heart.
There is no fear of God before his eyes.

He so flatters himself in his mind that he knows not his guilt.
In his mouth are mischief and deceit.
All wisdom is gone.

He plots the defeat of goodness as he lies on his bed.
He has set his foot on evil ways, he clings to what is evil.

The rest of the psalm speaks of God´s love.

"much canonical, left-wing feminism is not so much support for women, as it is a protest against Western, heterosexual men."

Oh, those western, heterosexual men. Freedom could not exist without them.

A true reveal by someone who lived on the inside for long enough to know them...their driving force is hate.

"I never witnessed significant leftist outrage over clitoredectomy, child marriage, honor killing, sharia-inspired rape laws, stoning, or acid attacks. Nothing. Zip. Crickets."

I would love to send this to some leftist acquaintances. (I don´t have any leftist friends). But I doubt that any of them would read beyond the title.

One of my own experiences similar to those mentioned in this essay was a conversation with a woman who is the ultimate leftist cliche - think GreenPeace sticker on her Prius. I mentioned, in the context of the conversation, that I never wanted to be on welfare. This woman shot back with, "Are you a bigot?" I had not mentioned race or ethnicity and pointed out to her that she was the one who connected welfare with race and was, therefore, the bigot. End of conversation. Here´s the kicker - this woman lives in a ultra-exclusive retirement community which is so lily-white that there aren´t even any minorities working there. In the assisted living facility, all of the kitchen, maintenance and housekeeping workers are white. And all of the residents are VERY well off.

A mind blowing "wow" for sure, and a strong agreement on a "must read". A powerful argument against Leftism by a former Leftist.

Also brings to mind another "Rush is Right" moment, he does know these people and clearly articulates their motivation.

Writer Goska does a One-Up of Saint Paul´s confession of killing Christians and holding the coats at Stephen´s stoning, but instead comes off still picking fights that nobody can win. Plus, the writer subtly lets you know she is now a repentant Catholic (good) and that she was moved by the horror visited on Sarah Palin and the utter dichotomy of the left.

In total, I am even more convinced--based upon this article--that liberalism, leftism, communism, etc., is indeed A MENTAL DISORDER!

I just posted this brilliant piece to my Facebook page so I expect to be "unfriended" by some, at the very least, and attacked by others -- if they bother to read it, which, of course, is very unlikely. Oh, well!

I knew, or had experienced about 75% of the things he cited, but the other 25% is so vile that even I was shocked. These people are VERY sick. Their hypocrisy, which is in essence a blatant form of lying, is the thing that disturbs me the most. And they get away with it every day

And I am soo tired of Republicans on TV who say that both sides have vicious elements who spout hate. Yes, there are a few (and I sometimes quietly chide commenters to this site who veer toward this)but the filth that is spouted by leftists on Social Media is absolutely mind numbing. I don´t even understand some of their veiled euphemisms that are obviously evil.

It seems she´s come to her senses, but why did it take a lifetime? Many of the things she recognized happened years ago, yet she continued to turn a blind eye to them. If she wants to continue her healing she needs to divest herself of her liberal friends and her basic sympathy to the goals of liberalism/communism.

Agreed #28
I have been an L Dot member since almost the first weeks.
It makes me sad that over the years since 2006 there is a growing number of hate posts directed at fellow conservatives who are not on the same page with some of the more narrow ideas some posters project.
I despise the labels thrown about and slurs towards different Christian denominations.

Are to push out moderates and become as vicious as the progressives have done to moderate and conservative democrats?

Hatred is coupled to arrogance, which is connected to chronic sinfulness. Although the left has a definite monopoly on the combination of these evils, the Republican Party has one or two in their midst, as well, whom we usually refer to as, "RINOs." One such man from Arizona appears to harbor a "victim arrogance" of his own, which gets trotted out for display in times of need. There are others too, as I´m sure most here recognize. They despise conservative ideals and morality. In the media it´s often referred to as being a fiscal conservative vs. social conservative, etc., ad nauseum. A TRUE conservative is rigidly Judeo-Christian in morality, and a free-market capitalist by standards of economy. Those "in the middle" are more akin to "Politcal Transvestites," confused, but, oh so proud to show it off.

Love vs. Hate is the great conflict each of us entered into this world to resolve. While many people can speak of having a "love" for this, or their "love" for that, only God can say that He IS Love, as part of His Divine Essence.

"For God so LOVED the world that He gave His uniquely born Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."
John 3:16

I would like to see an essay on ten reasons why anyone would choose to be a progressive/leftist in the first place. I would really like to understand their psychology because as far as I can see, progressivism is all over the place with Obama and his henchmen, and the country is disintegrating.

Good may fear, reject and be outraged by evil. But because hatred itself is evil, good does not hate evil. Evil, however, hates good. Not sure why the latter is true, except that it is. Perhaps it is because evil recognizes its own ugliness, which is all the more evident when good is present. The way to end the contrast is to drive out good.

The author is mostly likely a woman, having worked with the Sisters of Charity. Also, I think a woman would be more aware of misogyny than a man.

In the larger sense, gender is not the issue. The issue is the hypocrisy and cluelessness of the left. Eric and Gary, hosts of Red Eye Radio (very early morning nationwide conservative talk radio hosts) talk a lot about how what ever the left does to accomplish a goal, actually brings about the opposite of what they were trying to achieve.

Romney can´t lead a more populist GOP
Washington Examiner (D.C.), by Timothy P. Carney    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 10/1/2014 11:05:01 PM     Post Reply
Mitt Romney is a great person and a decent politician, but he also embodies the deepest problems in the Republican Party. He shouldn´t run for president. Republicans, if they want to control Congress or win the White House, need to become a Party of the People. Romney may be the worst possible man to take the GOP in that direction. Romney’s most telling moment in 2012 was when he told a crowd of rich donors that the 47 percent of the country that “pay no income tax” are unwinnable for Republicans, because they “are dependent upon government,” and “I´ll never convince them

The first reported case of Ebola in the United States is spooking airline investors and raising the prospect that some frightened travelers might stay home despite repeated reassurances from public-health experts. Details of the man´s 28-hour trip from western Africa emerged Wednesday. He flew on two airlines, took three flights, and had lengthy airport layovers before reaching Texas on Sept. 20. Still, federal officials say other passengers on the flights are at no risk of infection because the man had no symptoms at the time of his trip. Thomas Eric Duncan left Monrovia, Liberia, on Sept. 19 aboard a Brussels Airlines jet to

Romney’s blue work shirt was tucked into faded jeans; sockless ankles peeked out from his New Balance sneakers. He paused as Ann Romney entered from the kitchen, where she was baking chocolate-chip cookies. “Sweetie,” he continued, “what are some of the items we gave away at the Yankee swap?” It was a September morning, and the Romneys were closing up their summer house in Wolfeboro, N.H.

The flight information for the Ebola patient diagnosed in Texas will not be released by health officials because "It´s just not necessary," a spokesperson at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told ABC News. The CDC announced that the man has tested positive for the disease, making him the first person to have discovered he had the virus while on U.S. soil, and they made it clear that he traveled from Liberia to America to visit family in Dallas. "If we need to contact passengers we have a way. We´d call ourselves," the CDC spokesperson said. Even though the CDC will

The man with the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the U.S. went to hospital feeling sick only to be given antibiotics and be sent home. It was not until two days later that the man was admitted to the Dallas hospital and put in isolation, it has been reported. It raises the frightening prospect that he was mixing freely with other people for a full two days while showing symptoms of the virus - the time when Ebola is most contagious. The unidentified patient has been in isolation at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital since Sunday, officials said. The hospital has launched a

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here. An unnamed patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was placed in isolation while awaiting test results for the dreaded virus. Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus
