Most people don’t understand that Progressives are Leftists are Marxists, which in simple terms means that every individual exists only to serve the collectivist community (by dying if need be), which is always run by wealthy and powerful Progressives (think Obama, Hillary, Stalin, Mao, and frankly Hitler too).
To keep said community under control, it must be divided into groups (ideologically or superficially – it’s all good), which are in turn encouraged to fight each other (not the greatest challenge given sinful human nature).
This constant warring keeps the enemy (usually the morally upright or at least people you would probably want in power) and the useful idiots (who actually think they are helping make the world better) all busy while the “informed Progressives” turn cultural footholds into strongholds and amass even more power to create their idea of utopia (picture Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s USSR or Mao’s China – it’s where atheistic humanism always takes society).
All this to emphasise that Progressivism is all about fracturing society.
That’s why you will always hear about victims groups from the Left – blacks, women, homosexuals, trangenders, aboriginals, the poor.
Yes, there’s always a bit of truth mixed in and some of these groups have legitimate victim stories to tell.
However, Progressives redefine these groups so all they can identify as is perpetually insatiable victims of a few actual but mostly fabricated crimes. Also, they are never to blame for any of their circumstances. Only when they get super-special treatment can they be “equal” with all the rest of us.
For example, homosexuals are perpetual victims of everybody – especially Christians, fertility, and the natural biological order – but they are also portrayed as “victims” of HIV, a disease they get from their dangerous sexual practises (yes, anal “sex” transfers HIV and a whole host of diseases to at least 10% of all homosexuals so we’re talking a very serious but entirely preventable epidemic) and even though they do it to themselves, we are told by progressives that somehow none of it is their fault- victims duh! Homosexuals, therefore, should receive special treatment from everyone, whether by redefining marriage for their tiny percentage or receiving state subsidy to help safeguard their quite literally disease-ridden sexual practises.
Like homosexuals, all of these groups are forever “unequal” and they will always be “unequal” until the next Communism or Reich is fully established and no one can raise a free hand to stop it.
That said, please remember these two important points:
- Informed Progressives (like Obama) are using these groups as pawns to gain social, cultural, and political power and importantly, they could give a rat’s about the wellbeing of these groups. Their mission is to be God of their own communist utopia, no matter how many suffer to make it happen.
- Useful idiots often do actually care about these groups but they are idiots because they think that the informed Progressives are fighting for a better society (yes, they really do – think all of these Academy Awards speakers, especially Leonardo DiCaprio and his obsession with saving the world from climate change) when it’s really just a long series of power plays. Useful idiots make up the numbers and vote your Obamas and Hitlers into power willingly.
It’s a necessary contextual backdrop for this:
Last week, British singer/songwriter Sam Smith won an Oscar for the theme song of the latest James Bond film Spectre. From what I understand of the ratings, not many (including me) saw it, so let me recap his acceptance speech, which I found on YouTube.
He said he read an article written by some other British guy that no openly gay man had ever won an Oscar. Smith (no relation – I hope) said whether this was true or not, he’d still like to dedicate his award to the LGBT community all around the world. He continued by saying: “I stand here as a proud gay man and I hope we can all stand together as equals one day.”
After the merriment subsided, people took to Twitter and such to correct Smith that he wasn’t the first. Of course, he said he may not be, but that didn’t matter to the low information crowd who watched these displays of self-aggrandizement.
Smith responded to the criticism by saying: “Second openly gay man to win an Oscar or third or fourth or 100th, it wasn’t my point. My point was to shine some light on the LGBT community who I love so dearly.”
The best director Oscar went to Alejandro somebody or other for The Revenant. His name is not as important as what he said during his acceptance. He exclaimed: “What a great opportunity for our generation to really liberate ourselves from all prejudice and – you know – this – tribal thinking and make sure once and forever that the color of skin become as irrelevant as the length of our hair.”
Okay – so we have some liberal movie-maker up there preaching equality, color-blindness, and an end to “tribal thinking.” That is terrific. But what is tribal thinking? What is a tribe? Is it not a community of people who come from a common ancestry, have common values, and share common interests? Tribes willingly segregate due to these interests, do they not?
So I suppose then this director wishes for people to be more integrated – recognized as individuals, rather than a tribe. I guess this is what he meant by an end to “tribal thinking.”
Yet, he began his acceptance by thanking the Native Americans and the English Americans who were in the film. So is he not guilty of tribal thinking – lumping all the Injuns into one “tribe” and all the limeys into another.
And what of Sam Smith? He too is guilty of “tribal thinking” by setting the LGBT “tribe” above all others.
But this is what the hypocrites of the left do – they insist on having it both ways. They say we should be striving for a colorblind and all-inclusive society, which I agree is a laudable but wholly unachievable goal. They then blame the right for not giving just recognition to the black tribe, or the Latino tribe, or the gender-bending tribe, etc.
Yet, they are frankly the only ones to willfully, happily separate people into one group or another when it is to their benefit. How many thousands of times have we been lectured that the right must venture into the “black community” to win their monolithic “tribal” vote. The entire Black Lives Matter movement could be considered “tribal.” And they insist on it.
When a white insists that all lives matter, they are shouted down – not because all lives don’t matter, but because the left must maintain the “tribal” aspect to advance whatever is their cause that day.
These pampered Hollywood weenies, as do all liberals, love to stand up and preach equality and inclusiveness, yet it is the left and only they who advance tribal thinking. The only conclusion any reasonable person could come to is that the left must be advocating for the return of the 1896 Supreme Court decision, Plessy v. Ferguson, Separate but Equal doctrine.
