It occurs to me, a former leftist, that there’s another appropriate term to describe the nature of the tactics and strategy those we good-naturedly and euphemistically call “progressives.”
But before I tell you the word, let me explain what the left uniquely does to its adversaries – people like former President Donald Trump, Tucker Carlson, Steve Bannon, Dinesh D’Souza, anyone they really don’t like.
One way you could explain what they attempt to do is to excommunicate them from polite society. That’s putting it ever so mildly. But the idea is to hold those with whom they disagree in utter contempt. It’s very close to accusing them of political heresy. But even that is not quite strong enough.
They strongly suggest their opponents represent a clear and present danger to society. They even do this retroactively by demolishing statues of some of America’s greatest leaders – in fact, the country’s Founding Fathers.
What is the purpose of that action? It is to tarnish their names, to discredit any historic contributions they may have made to the advancement of liberty, to ensure they are never cited as brilliant statesmen in the future and to call into question their moral fiber and character.
In effect, wouldn’t it be accurate to say the political left is not only attacking the founders’ ideas about constitutional limits on the size and scope of government but actually defaming them as individuals who, having been silenced by death, are in no position to defend themselves?
Let’s take an actual example – George Washington.
Some of his statues have been defaced and toppled by the alt-left crazies. And there are two reasons for it:
He was a slaveholder and thus, they conclude, a racist. I’m not going to bother getting into an explanation of why that is not necessarily an accurate or fair conclusion. Nuance is never going to win an argument with the alt-left. Why? Because some of their biggest heroes were racists – people like Margaret Sanger, for instance. She didn’t, by the way, exhibit her racism more than 200 years ago, but rather in the 20th century when she advocated for extermination of black people because they were, in her view, “inferior.”
But the second and more important reason they vilify George Washington is because, more than any other historic personality, he represents the founding of America. He’s even called “the Father of Our Country.” That means he has several strikes against him – he was white, he was a man, they despise him as a paternalistic “father figure,” he fought against Native Americans in the French and Indian War, he was a slaveholder, and he personifies everything wrong with the founding of America.
But it’s not enough to call him names and discredit his accomplishments.
What they seek to do by toppling his statues and monuments is kill his memory.
What other rationale would there be for destroying physical reminders of him? In addition, their goal is to blot out any memory of what makes America the torch of life and liberty around the world.
And that leads me directly to this new term I am suggesting that truly represents the intent of the alt-left in its vicious attacks on their enemies of the past and the present.
Are you ready for it? I admit, it’s one you have to think about. It’s one, I believe, will grow on you.
That’s what the left does to its enemies in its quest for power. And, by the way, once the left grabs total power, they no longer have to use political character assassination. The left has a strong historical track record of just plain, old-fashioned murder after solidifying its grip on the reins of power.
If you have any doubts about the left’s ability to erase history through “politicide,” let me remind you of the deadly power of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. In the aftermath of Red October, between 50 million and 60 million were murdered by their own government.
Have you heard any “progressives” repenting for their ideology’s sins of the past?
So, think about it – “politicide.” Death through politics.
The left is a political death cult.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.
To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.
Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.
All of this and much more is explored in a powerful, insightful and absolutely unique way in the December 2022 issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOLY WAR: Defeating the growing cult of leftism and its total war on Christianity.”
