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

Touching read for a Sunday morning. What resonated with me as a Christian is the emphasis on positive activity: building, cultivating, creating, loving.... The world scorns the believers for this, but, really, how could a truly good life be lived any other way?

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.

Posted By: Desert Fox- 10/4/2014 3:41:27 AM     Post Reply
Note: Hate speech, not hate crimes. YouGov asked people about hate crimes for its poll too and found bipartisan support for the federal law that provides steeper penalties for crimes motivated by hatred of the victim’s race, religion, gender, or national origin. Sixty-four percent of Dems gave thumbs-up to that versus 54 percent of Republicans. A plurality of Republicans also support expanding that law to target hate crimes committed against gays: 44 percent say yes versus 30 percent who say no. Hate-crimes laws matter in the sentencing phase. If you’re guilty of the underlying offense, then you can be punished more

Scandal: A court tells the White House to ac knowledge the existence of a probe into whether one of its advisers used private tax records for political gain. Transparency is being forced on an administration that´s anything but. In 2010, an attorney for industrialists and libertarian political donors Charles and David Koch told the Weekly Standard of a senior Obama aide telling reporters on background that the Kochs "do not pay corporate income tax" through their company, Koch Industries.

On Friday, a Washington D.C. hospital admitted a patient with possible Ebola symptons. If the patient is confirmed to have the virus, it would be the second documented case in the U.S. While we know the public is concerned about the spread of this incredibly dangerous virus, what many may not know is that it has the potential to impact the stock market, and the economy, even if it doesn’t spread. On Thursday, Yahoo Finance spoke with the Chief Economist at RBS, Michelle Girard, about trends in global markets and the economy, and she brought up the risk Ebola is posing to

RUSH: First off, the jobs news. Isn´t it amazing? Just prior to the 2012 election, for the year or two years leading up to the 2012 election, the Drive-Bys repeatedly reported a statistic. The statistic was that no president had ever been reelected if the unemployment rate was 8% or higher on Election Day. In fact, the month before the election. Well, it was obvious what was gonna happen, and I so stated that miraculously, the unemployment rate would end up, the last report before the election, November 12, would have it below 8.0%. And it did, 7.9. It was a

Mitt Romney just made a savvy next step in his quiet, camouflaged 2016 campaign. Like a growing number of Americans, Romney refused to declare a political party when he filled out a new voter registration reform in Utah. It´s the sort of party-rejecting step that could position a reinvented Romney to become America´s first non-Democrat or Republican president since the 1800s. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the new Utah registration form completed and signed by Romney last August deliberately leaves out any party identification. As the Republican nominee in 2012 and a Republican candidate in 2008, this would seem to

The Democrat/Progressive Party may be signing their own death certificate in the 2014 elections with their mishandling of Ebola. One and half million people are quarantined in Sierra Leone. The first case has hit America. And all Obama has done is make a speech saying everything is fine here, but he’s sending American troops into harm’s way there. A ghastly virus that kills 50-100% of its victims and has no known treatment is something people notice. It is something women notice. Ebola is creating an epidemic of fear, for good reason.

Scientists to ‘fast-track’ evidence
linking global warming to wild weather
Independent (U.K.), by Tom Bawden    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 10/4/2014 3:06:58 AM     Post Reply
Scientists are to challenge the climate-change sceptics by vastly improving the speed with which they can prove links between a heatwave or other extreme weather event and man-made changes to the atmosphere. It typically takes about a year to determine whether human-induced global warming played a role in a drought, storm, torrential downpour or heatwave – and how big a role it played. This allows climate sceptics to dismiss any given extreme event as part of the “natural weather variation” in the immediate aftermath, while campaigners automatically blame it on global warming. By the time the truth comes out most people have lost

It wasn´t supposed to be this way, especially for the candidate running preaching "social justice." According to this Wall Street Journal editorial, the Obama presidency has been just "dandy" for the top 1%. In the latest grim tiding of the public mood, merely 42% think the American dream that "if you work hard, you´ll get ahead" remains true, down from 53% in 2012 and 50% in 2010. According to the Public Religion Research Institute poll last week, the steepest declines in belief in the last two years were among people under age 30 (down 16 percentage points), women (14 points) and Democrats (17).

RUSH: Last night Anderson Cooper 24 spoke with author David Quammen about the book Ebola: The Natural and Human History of a Deadly Virus and How America Should Respond to It. Anderson Cooper said, "There are those who say that there should not be flights allowed from Liberia to US, even flights that have connected through Europe. That´s not even really possible. First of all, I don´t think there are many flights that directly connect from Monrovia to the US. Most of them are connection flights, so it´s virtual impossible in real time like that to track somebody, I would think."

Ebola has reached our shores from Africa. Dozens of children are reportedly suffering paralysis from a deadly virus with unknown origins. Medical providers across the country have warned of a looming public-health crisis as communicable diseases spread unmonitored and uncontrolled. Other countries are cracking down. But America is stuck on open-borders stupid. The Diversity Visa (DV) program, to take just one glaring example of government insanity, is still going. On October 1, the State Department opened the annual DV random lottery to applicants from around the world. Yes, it’s completely random,

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

Mitt Romney and 2016:

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his
