A Leftist Core Belief: Denying Evil
American Thinker, by Tom Trinko

Original Article

Posted By:dvc, 5/3/2018 1:53:06 PM

A fundamental problem with leftists is their refusal to believe that some people embrace evil. The leftist idea that anyone who isn´t directly opposing the left can´t be evil, only misguided, underlies many key leftist policies. Take gun control. It´s premised on the idea that people don´t kill people; guns do. But we know that removing guns does not stop evil men from murder; contrary to the leftist´s deeply held belief, Cain didn´t murder Abel with an assault rifle. After all, if some men weren´t evil, why would Great Britain now be starting to control knives? Because leftists reject the

Comments:
After decades of trying to track backwards through the myriad wrong answers and counterfactual results that the left comes up with to find their ´root cause error´ which leads to all their insanity, I have come to the same conclusion as the author.

They think "There is no such thing as a bad boy" - people are always "good, deep down inside", and it is just that things (guns) or "society" corrupts them. If you just give them one more chance, they will be good.
They refuse to learn that good behavior is learned, and some people are just purely evil.

How about their vaunted core belief of "Diversity" that they keep hounding us with?

There is only one BIG problem with that...
There is NO diversity of thought!
None, Zero, Zip, Nada!!

It´s: think our way or hit the highway!

I´m not so sure. Leftists are so set on their views that anyone they see as standing in their way is evil. The "far Right" is evil because we´d like to live in a culture that shows some modicum of decency and restraint on unbridled lust and the killing babies who may result. Therefore we are evil. Muslims who would slit their throats over a slit skirt and have women covered up in moving blankets are not evil because they don´t pose an immediate threat to their next tryst. Of course we conservatives see the long term eventual intersection of astoundingly incompatible belief systems, they don’t look that far ahead. All they know is right now they can count on a conservative telling them no and no Muslim is doing so. Conservative = evil, Muslim = actually good because not only are they not an immediate impediment, they are driving conservatives crazy, the very people the left wishes to eliminate. The old enemy of my enemy thing.

Leftists are two year olds. Break it down to that level you’ll never go wrong. They want what they want and they want it now.

By denying the existence of evil, one indirectly denies the existence of God. That´s what the left is really after.

Acknowledge evil, and once acknowledges a moral code. Acknowledge a moral code, and one acknowledges a moral code giver. That moral code giver is God.

When the left denies the existence of God, they quickly get themselves tangled up on other things as well. Evil is just one thing the left falls short. What happens to the justice system when one changes the moral code? Justice becomes a mockery. Watch what the left says, and one quickly spots a myriad of holes in their logic.

A conservative woman who recently graduated from Kent State University has received threats after she took aim at her school’s anti-gun policies in a photo shoot where she carried an AR-10 and wore a cap that said, “Come and take it.” Kaitlin Bennett, a 22-year-old Second Amendment supporter from Zanesville, Ohio and founder of Liberty Hangout at Kent State, a student media outlet that promotes libertarian values, posed in front of the Kent Student Center for the tweet that has gone viral.

To put this story into context, let´s go back to 1899 and the publication of Johann von Bloch´s book Die Zukunft des Krieges (The Future of War). Bloch was a 19th-century railway magnate who had built the Warsaw to Moscow railway. In those days, the best and the brightest worked on optimizing the productivity of railroads through operational analysis. Bloch applied insights from managing railroads to theorizing about the conduct of war. His big insight, original at the time, was that wars would be won by the country with the biggest industrial output. This is the same as the Soviet

Writer Ryan Moore was a confirmed lifelong anti-gun liberal. He even tweeted out a request to President Obama to repeal the Second Amendment in 2012. But one day, Moore was confronted with a situation that changed his entire perspective on guns to the point where he is now a life member of the NRA. Moore was literally mugged by reality. Des Moines Register: Then in 2013 I tweeted: "I was mugged, two guys with guns, right after getting off 19 at Polk and Francisco last night about 10.30. @mayoredlee @sfmta_muni" In early 2016, I decided to leave San Francisco and to build a house in

She’d always “felt safe in her neighborhood,” said an unnamed young woman in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. That is, until around midnight of October 25, 2008, when she heard a crash in her basement. A 47-year-old registered sex offender named Ronnie W. Preyer had broken into her home. She “made a beeline to the back door, but Preyer was waiting for her,” writes Bridget DiCosmo of the Southeast Missourian. She fought back, but was punched, “twice, she thinks.” Before leaving, her rapist told her, “Don’t tell anybody, I know where you live.” “I wasn’t going to tell, but the more I thought about

After being offered an opportunity to sing the national anthem before a Nevada minor league baseball game, a woman has decided to turn it down after learning that she can’t bring her gun to the stadium. Alishia Wolcott was picked by the Reno Aces to sing after she submitted an audition tape in March, she told Fox News. But after she and her husband went to the stadium on Saturday to attend a game as spectators, they saw security included metal detector wands, which she claimed was a new measure this year.

After the FBI conducted its search of Michael Cohen, Trump´s personal lawyer, the entire press, both Republicans and Democrats, demanded decisive actions by President Trump. Fire Mueller! Fire Rosenstein! Where is Attorney General Sessions?! Everyone called for Trump´s response. But the FBI´s search of Cohen was the response of the Washington swamp to a short television interview with Sessions about two weeks ago, followed by an official letter to the key Republican members of Congress, in which he casually noted that he had appointed a prosecutor to investigate what is known as "Clintonistas." It turns out that the prosecutor, Huber

A judge in Massachusetts on Friday ruled against a lawsuit that questioned the state’s ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, declaring that the weapons were not protected by the Second Amendment. Assault weapons are considered to be military firearms, U.S. District Judge William Young said in his ruling, therefore disqualifying them from being included in a citizen’s right to “bear arms.” Policy makers, rather than the courts, were better suited to decide on the regulation for the weapons, he said. "Other states are equally free to leave them unregulated and available to their law-abiding citizens," Young said in his

In the aftermath of the October 1, 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas, the Justice Department has proposed a new rule reclassifying "bump stocks" as machine guns. President Trump has condemned bump stocks, and even the National Rifle Association has called for "additional regulations" on "devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles." The new rule would require that all existing bump stocks either be turned in or destroyed without compensation. I don´t own any bump stocks. I have no desire to own a bump stock. I think they´re asinine. It´s the sort of device an eighteen-year-old

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was undercut by her interior minister on Friday, when he said in an interview that “Islam does not belong to Germany.” Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, whose Bavarian Christian Social Union is a right-wing coalition ally of Merkel´s Christian Democrats (CDU), made the remarks in an interview with Bild, although he did add that Muslims who live in the country are part of Germany. “Germany is shaped by Christianity. That means not working on Sundays and celebrating religious holidays such as Easter, Pentecost and Christmas," he said. “My message is: Muslims need to live with us, not next to us

In the wake of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, some are calling for teachers, administrators and other adults at schools to carry guns to help prevent mass shootings. A Utah teacher joined Martha MacCallum on "The Story" to explain why she carries a handgun to school every single day. Kasey Hansen revealed that the idea to arm herself in the classroom began with the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where 20 children and six adults were killed. "The teachers just huddled their kids in the corner and stood in front of them and hoped for the best. They didn't have any defense for them,

The FBI is investigating people inspired by “kind of an Antifa ideology,” bureau Director Christopher Wray said Thursday. Wray told members of the House Homeland Security Committee that people associated with the so-called anti-fascist or Antifa movement were subject to the FBI probe amid possible violent criminal activity. “While we´re not investigating Antifa as Antifa — that´s an ideology and we don´t investigate ideologies — we are investigating a number of what we would call anarchist-extremist investigations, where we have properly predicated subjects of people who are motivated to commit violent criminal activity on kind of an Antifa ideology,” he told the

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision. Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back -- the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Tuesday that the FBI was not at any point spying on the Trump campaign. “They were not. They were spying — a term I don´t particularly like — on what the Russians were doing," Clapper said during an appearance on The View to promote his new book, “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths From A Life In Intelligence.” The FBI, Clapper said, was simply trying to answer the question, "Were the Russians infiltrating, trying to gain access, trying to gain leverage and influence?"

The Democratic Party has no leader right now. No one. Former President Barack Obama is palling around with his billionaire, island-owning buddies. Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders is kicking back in one of his three houses (we’re guessing the big one on Lake Champlain). And the 20-some 2020 presidential wannabes are all jockeying for media attention (and cash, lots of cash). In such a void, that leaves just one person with the spotlight: the bitter, ever-angry, petty, vindictive Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton told the Democratic Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday that she would be a foundational part of the anti-Trump

It happens every 405,000 years. The Earth’s orbit gradually changes shape from almost circular to slightly elliptical over a period of 202,500 years, and then starts returning to form over the next 202,500 years — like a metronome swinging side to side. Right now, we are in an almost perfectly circular orbit around the sun, and soon — within some thousands of years, that is — we will start moving toward the elliptical. This happens because of the Earth’s gravitational interactions with other planets, especially Jupiter and Venus — Jupiter because it is very large, and Venus because it is very near.
