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.

We are a better people than this aren´t we?
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.

JERUSALEM—A Hamas force wearing Israeli army uniforms emerged from a tunnel inside Israel this morning and inflicted losses on Israeli troops before being wiped out. The Hamas squad numbered at least 10 fighters, Israeli sources said. Nine were killed but an Israeli officer said at least two may have escaped through the tunnel. In initial accounts, which gave conflicting narratives, the Hamas force was said to have emerged from a hidden tunnel on the Israeli side of the border only 200 yards from a kibbutz, and split into two groups. Israeli soldiers whom one group encountered shortly afterwards reportedly took them to

Diversity for Thee, but Not for Me
American Thinker, by Jim Yardley    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 7/22/2014 3:44:09 AM     Post Reply
The Progressive mantra of “diversity is our strength” is one of the most honored catchphrases of the left. Like all slogans, it is a test to see if common folk are “gun-toting, Bible-clinging” Neanderthals or are they part of the enlightened, educated elites to whom the rest of us must surrender our individual beliefs, opinions, and thoughts. But as with all that the Progressives say, the meaning of the words being used is warped and misrepresented. For example, think about what Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz is saying in the following: Diversity on the bench is critical. As practitioners, you need judges who ´get it!´

I’m the editor here at AT who handled M Catherine Evans’ “Americans Protest Illegals as High-Profile Conservatives Pander,” the piece that opened the second – or maybe third – front in the conservative civil war this Monday. That submission came in relatively late on Sunday. Monday’s article schedule was already set. But I put it up anyway, shifting another piece to do it. I made sure it went in for Monday even though, for technical reasons, I had to reenter it twice into the publishing system. I made sure it went in because of what it says about the nature of conservatism

Want to get a new angle on Obama´s Hope and Change mantra? Longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer wrote the book about it before Obama was even born: The Ordeal of Change. [E]very radical adjustment is a crisis in self-esteem... It needs inordinate self-confidence to face drastic change without inner trembling. “Action,” wrote Hoffer, “is the most obvious way by which to gain confidence and prove our worth... [but] there must be an abundance of opportunities, and there must be a tradition of self-reliance” for a program of action to work. And back in the 19th century when the first great wave of immigration

That is what the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee suggested Monday morning in a newly released transcript of a recent closed-door interview with IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Thomas Kane. Kane is responsible for producing documents requested by Congress that are related to a a probe into the IRS past practice of targeting conservative groups.

Hillary Rodham Clinton will participate in a live Q&A today on Facebook.

She said in a Facebook post that she’ll be talking about her new book, “Hard Choices“ and answer questions on her book’s Facebook page beginning at 2:30 p.m. The book delves into her years as secretary of state. A Facebook spokesperson said Clinton’s tour of Facebook headquarters was closed to the press. There’s been some speculation over whether Clinton would run for president in 2016. She has yet to

Obama shares support for DC statehood

President Obama said Monday that as a Washington, D.C., resident he supported statehood for the District of Columbia’s 650,000 inhabitants. "I´m in D.C., so I´m for it," Obama said Monday at a town-hall event to promote his "My Brother´s Keeper" program. "I´ve long believed that folks in D.C. pay taxes like everybody else. They contribute to the overall well-being of the country like everybody else. They should be represented like everybody else," Obama added. The president said there was no reason based on population size to deny the district´s residents statehood. But he acknowledged that the politics in Congress on D.C. statehood would

In response to the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling, atheists are sitting around knitting. And in this time of national crisis, they are knitting bricks. Worried about the supposedly crumbling wall of separation between church and state, the Secular Coalition for America (SCA) launched a “Knit a Brick” campaign to “harness outrage” at the ruling. The group will send yarn bricks to the Supreme Court, Congress, or White House staffers. Targets will be selected based on the number of bricks the Coalition’s high command receives by August 5, according to Religionnews.com. If organizers collect 400 bricks, they will send them to

In a series of clearly photoshopped scenes compiled by a Chinese student, the dictator is shown cavorting in a field with Osama bin Laden, riding a pig through a snowy field, and being fly-kicked into a swimming pool by President Barack Obama. And Pyongyang is not happy. ´It seriously compromises Kim’s dignity and authority,´ a top-ranking official from the Hermit Kingdom said, according to Asia News. North

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS. Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose. (Tweet) It came after Willow Palin´s ex-boyfriend allegedly engage in some

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Camp Edwards - Police and military officials are searching for three officers from the Afghanistan National Army who were engaged in a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady said the three men were reported missing on Saturday night after travelling into Hyannis that day. “They didn´t report back (to the base),” Sahady said. “There is no indication they pose a threat to the public.” Police and base officials are cooperating in the search for the three men, identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

Note: Read the Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky Letters here. Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare." Emanuel even includes a monstrous but brightly colored graph that is meant to tell anyone over 75 that their "last contribution" to society likely occurred more than a decade ago. Good God. The phrase "the banality of evil" gets bandied about a

Lois Lerner says she is no Jeffrey Dahmer. The former Internal Revenue Service official referenced the infamous cannibalistic serial killer as she broke her silence for the first time about last year’s IRS scandal. Lerner told the website Politico that she has been the recipient of threats and hate mail, describing how one person called her “the worst person ever in the United States.” “I just thought, ‘Boy, worse than Jeffrey Dahmer?’” Lerner quipped. Lerner, who led the tax-exempt division of the IRS, was forced out of the agency after she found herself at the center of the scandal over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups

President Obama is supporting the Secret Service in the wake of a deeply troubling incident in which a disturbed man jumped the White House fence, sprinted across the North Lawn, and actually entered the White House Friday evening. The man, 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez, had a folding knife in his pocket and had left 800 rounds of ammunition in his car not far from the White House. Gonzalez had also drawn the attention of authorities at least twice a few weeks ago — once in Virginia, when he was found with a sniper rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, and a map with

AUSTIN, Texas -- At an event today at the University of Texas Austin campus, Texas Governor Rick Perry reaffirmed his support of allowing illegal immigrant students to pay in-state tuition at Texas colleges and universities, while U.S. citizens from other states continue to pay higher out-of-state tuition rates. Perry made his remarks in a "One-on-One Conversation" with Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith at the Texas Tribune Festival, an annual event organized by the online media outlet. Breitbart Texas made several queries to Governor Perry´s press office for comment, but as of press time,
