Thanks, Liberals, For Making This So Much Easier

2,019 words

Let me count the ways:

1. We don’t have to try to be fair anymore

For many years I have been consumed by righteous indignation and thrown many a time into high dudgeon over the intolerance of liberals, especially on our college campuses.Far from being book-burning, speech-suppressing Nazis, our people are genuinely fair-minded and willing to give the other side a hearing. When given a position of some influence over a campus speakers’ organization (years ago), I strove to present both sides of issues. Thanks, liberals, for liberating me from my naïveté.

Finally, completely, and absolutely you have demonstrated to the world that you are irredeemable scoundrels. You are not just liars, you are one hundred percent pure lie, with no additives: you don’t deceive yourselves, you know that your lies are lies, and you don’t care. Exposed, driven into the corners of your safe spaces, you bare your teeth and your breasts and perspire beneath your pussy hats, seething with a ressentiment that would make Nietzsche blush. Truly, he was right – though I suspect you could teach him a thing or two. And so was Ayn: you are “plain, naked, smirking evil.”

Finally I see it: nothing is to be gained by arguing with you or attempting to treat you fairly. I have been a sucker, a rube, a maroon, a useful idiot. You liberals simply must be destroyed. Your ideas must be suppressed. You must be driven from public life. We simply have to shut you down with complete and total, cold and heartless ruthlessness. We can’t even afford to show any mercy to your kids. After all, this stuff is probably genetic (years ago I coined the term “congenitally liberal” to refer to those you can tell are liberal based on their physiognomy). We will, however, take good care of your cats and dogs – who are a helluva lot smarter and cleaner than you are.

Now I know what Hitler meant when he said, toward the end, “One always regrets being too kind.” So instead of trying to demonstrate to liberals and to the world how superior I am through my noble, Nordic sense of fair play, I will instead demonstrate how superior I am through my noble, Nordic berserker fury.

2. We don’t have to go home for Thanksgiving anymore

The annual ordeal. Dry, overcooked turkey. That awful sweet potato and marshmallow mush. Screaming kids. The roaring fire, though it’s still fifty degrees outside. The presumption you’d never take from non-relations that always shocks you when you see relatives again (“You’ve aged a lot!”). And, worst of all, the stupidity and numbing conformity. The in-law who lets her kids dress like whiggers. The kids glued to their iPhones. The parents who are oblivious to the fact that CNN has an agenda. The same parents who ate dinner for years in front of reruns of M*A*S*H and never cottoned on to what a colossal, liberal anus tart Alan Alda is. The cousin who says “wassup?!” Faced with these fruits of our family tree, who wouldn’t want to spend a few hours committing carbicide?

But those were the good old days. That was Thanksgiving 2015. Now we must endure the in-law who worries that Trump will start World War Three. The kids who think that Trump is Hitler. The cousin who thinks that taking everyone from everywhere was the “founding principle” of the nation (has he seen the 1790 Naturalization Act?). The other cousin who tells us that “diversity is our strength,” in a tone that suggests he coined the phrase himself. The father who voted for Hillary because he doesn’t like Trump’s hair (yes, that was my father’s actual reason). The sister who voted for Hillary just because she’s a she. The mother who thinks that “Russia hacked the election” (telling us this as if it is her own personal theory).

But, worst of all: the stunned silence when, having had enough, we inform them all that we voted for Trump, while staring (oddly enough) not at any of their faces but at the gaping rectum of the turkey in the center of the table. If we had confessed to being epic, serial child murderers, the news would probably have been better received.

Something dies inside us in that moment.

Praise be, Divine Providence! Praise be, Electoral College! We now have the perfect excuse to finally cut all these losers off. Genes or no genes. At least until they come to their senses.

3. We don’t have to be torn any longer about their shitty music, movies, TV shows, books, etc.

You can’t get away from the fact that almost everybody in the entertainment industry, and in “literature” is a flaming liberal. Yet, in the past I have managed to enjoy many films, TV shows, and other products put out by these folks. I was always torn: I knew that George Clooney was wet, but I enjoyed the films he made with the Coen brothers. But now that George has gone full retard, I can’t stand the sight of him. I will never spend another nickel or another minute watching anything with him in it.

Ditto Sally Field and Meryl Streep, especially the latter. Good actresses? You bet. But now it’s impossible to suspend my disbelief. Now when I see their work, I only see Field and Streep. I only see two batshit-crazy Leftists. And so I never want to see them again. Ditto Madonna. Yes, I actually like some of her music. Now I can never listen to it again without feeling like I need a thorough bath and a shot of penicillin.

I could go on and on, as you can imagine. I had always thought that it might be interesting to read Philip Roth (if only for the psychological insights). But now the decrepit Roth, hands withered from years of self-abuse, has warned us that Trump could bring on “the nuclear catastrophe.” Of all the dumb accusations against Trump, this one has to be the dumbest. So I can cross this guy off my list. (I know, I know, so don’t bother saying it: he shouldn’t have been on my list to begin with.)

It has been one of my goals for a long time to prune from my life all the things that are wasting the minutes and hours that I have left to me. All the so-so books, movies, music, and TV shows. Thanks, liberals, for making it so much easier!

4. We now know who our real friends are

It’s not just family who are giving me the cold shoulder, it’s “friends.” And given how problematic my family is, I tend to value friends more. (As for those of you with wonderful, supportive families, God bless you.) For years I have counted as “friends” people with whom I knew I could never share my most sincere, cherished convictions. Some of them kinda know about me. But it’s weird: all the evidence is in front of them, but they just won’t put 2 and 2 together. Some simply seem to impute to me beliefs that they hold, simply because they like me.

With these particular people there didn’t seem any point in trying to convert them, and certainly no point in upsetting them. And some of them are people I have had to work with in the past. (All my readers know what this is like.) For the most part, I liked them because they liked me. And they had certain virtues, such as liking me. I accepted them as they were and saw no reason to upset them by revealing myself in my full majesty. Essentially, I saw these “friends” as children, and even felt a bit sorry for them.

No longer, my friends. And I call you that because, indeed, my only real friends are those with whom I do not have to hide myself – those who share my most sincere, cherished convictions. Some of my alleged “friends” are now showing their true colors. Trump has really pushed a lot of people over the edge – and I mean both the pro- and anti-Trump crowds. The Left, of course, has completely lost its mind, as I predicted. Thus, those “friends” who knew vaguely of my “conservatism” but tried not to think about it are suddenly incapable of performing these mental gymnastics any longer. And for my part, I am suddenly unable to contain any longer the contempt and disgust I feel for their lies, their hypocrisy, their ressentiment, and – perhaps worst of all – their complete and utter failure to think critically, objectively, and fairly.

We have reached the tipping point, folks. And the days of “friends” are over. My affection for these folks has dried up. But I am prepared to show them one remaining act of kindness: I will allow them to feel the ecstasy of ideological vindication when I finally do what they’ve been predicting all along and send them off to the camps.

Thank you. Now it’s easy. So easy.

5. We hardly have to lift a finger . . . . .

Trump isn’t a racist, and he isn’t a sexist, and he isn’t a fascist. I mean, nobody’s perfect. He’s just the best we’re going to get. But in branding him and his supporters racist, sexist, and fascist, the liberals are actually doing us a huge favor. You see, Trump’s policies are utterly reasonable, and will almost certainly result in ordinary Americans feeling a greater sense of security, and enjoying greater economic opportunity. Trump’s policies are going to work, and he is going to be an extremely popular president. SO . . . If all of this is “racist/sexist/fascist,” the result is going to be that a lot of decent and honest Americans are going to start asking, “What’s so bad about racism, sexism, and fascism?”

Now, that’s not you. You are too precise a thinker to make that move. No, you will correctly respond that in fact Trump’s policies are not racist/sexist/fascist. But put yourself in the place of the honest but non-brilliant boobouisie. They’d be hard pressed to define any of these terms, given two hours and a stack of bluebooks. It is very likely that they will take Leftists at their word (they are professors, after all, aren’t they?) and assume that, yeah, this is what racism, sexism, and fascism look like. And they will ask: is this so bad?

Friends, we are actually going to start seeing ordinary people owning terms like “racism.” The liberals have forced a situation where decent, semi-intelligent people are going to start really thinking about things like racial differences, and asking whether it isn’t the case that a whole lot of claims that get labeled “racist” aren’t really true. And here’s the difference a year makes: they won’t just think this, they are going to start saying it. In short, the Left’s full-retard, batshit crazy antics and robotically repeated buzzwords and accusations are the cunning of reason. They are doing us a tremendous favor.

As so many have already pointed out, the Left is self-destructing. Sane people are recoiling from all the liberal excess – the riots, the PC witch hunts, the transgender madness, the six million Holocaust movies, the Black Astronauts, the airhead celebrities who can’t shut up, the deliberate lies about illegal alien crime, the championing of “refugees” while veterans sleep in our streets, the call for open borders when our own people can’t find work, the bizarre defense of Islam by feminists, and the pussy hats. I sincerely believe that the pussy hats pushed a lot of people over the edge.

With enemies like these, who needs friends? The Left is doing our work for us. So much so that I fear for my future. I fear I may become like one of those aging superheroes who is put out of work because the Super Criminals are all in jail. What do I do then? Flip burgers, like Hugh Akston?

Thanks, liberals, for making this so much easier.

Charles Ives used to surprise visitors by playing one of his compositions on the piano and then saying, “Why don’t you add something?” Seriously, why don’t you? How else have liberals made this easier?

    When order is restored and we get to power (which we will) most all cucks, neocons, leftist and liberals will fall in line. I will go out and look for them. I will never forgive or forget. If you supported any form of Cultural Marxism and white genocide you are beyond forgiveness. That train has passed long time ago.

    I’ve always enjoyed Mr. Costello’s essays here on CC, bold, humorous, cutting, insightful. trenchant, and this one is of no exception, sparkling with witty and pungent flair that is energizing and engrossing, and your arguments are provocative, audacious and hard-hitting, like a sobering cool wind that refreshed and reinvigorated my mind. Most of the feelings you claimed to have experienced resonate deep in my heart. A great read indeed!

    By the way, Mr. Costello mentioned this “Now I know what Hitler meant when he said, toward the end, “One always regrets being too kind.”” in his great essay. Could you or any others who know please kindly provide me with a link or something that leads to the source or provenance of that remark of Hitler’s? This particular information means a lot to me, so please kindly help. Thank you!

    Great article, which I view as a pre-revolutionary epiphany. And by that I mean an in the streets pre-revolutionary mindset that will eventually have to be followed up with a post revolutionary summary. Because that’s where this is going. At some point even the quiet sympathizers who secretly condone the escalating violence against all manifestations of “the right” will have to be held accountable.

    “Trump isn’t a racist, and he isn’t a sexist, and he isn’t a fascist. I mean, nobody’s perfect.” That is a beautiful epigram.

    Before the election, a cuckservative coworker of mine earnestly told me that he couldn’t believe all the irresponsible things Trump was saying. I usually never talk about politics at work, but I made an exception this time. I said to him, slowly and carefully, “Make. America. Great. Again.” He looked at me like I had announced I tortured kittens. I smiled.

    It seems that as they get older actors start going full tard, for example, Sylvester Stallone’s last two Rocky movies; in “Creed” (2016) he is mentoring Apollo Creed’s son, and in “Rocky Balboa” (2006) he hooks up with a women that has a mystery meat son. Robert Duvall in “Wild Horses” (2015) creates a pro-homosexual flick.

      Man I am sorry to hear that about Duvall, I thought he was one of the good guys

      As men age, they produce less testosterone. This makes some of them more touchy feelie. Not all, but some.

    Surely one of the most annoying things about liberals is their smug assumption that all of the intelligent and well-educated people they know must of course be in full agreement with their politics. This is especially true in the “professions” and is even more so in that SJW bastion of academia. It never crosses the mind of these people that anyone they know personally could be to the right of, say, Tim Kaine. The thought, the possibility, literally doesn’t come to them. They’d have a hysterical nervous breakdown if they knew any of their “colleagues” was even a cucked civic nationalist, never mind a full-fledged racist deplorable.

    Coupled with this is another trait: an infantile inability to refrain from injecting their political views and hatred of Trump into any discussion whatsoever – be it about sports, the weather, the theory of relativity, or whatever. They need constant reassurance that they live in a bubble of memetic and ideological comfort where there isn’t the slightest deviation from orthodoxy (I’ll refrain from making any parallels to “our side” with respect to that).

    Here is what I think will happen in America.
    Liberals will continue to self-destruct by absurdity, and submitting to blacks, muslims, and immigrants, none of whom share liberal beliefs except, what is in it for me.

    Conservatives have a small shot of stabilizing the ship for a time. But here I’m pessimistic as well, and think conservatives will fall back on their old habits, namely, slashing taxes for corporations and hoping the wealth trickles down, which of course it won’t.

    What a refreshing article. I live in Washington state, so this is ground zero for liberal-think. What surprises me still is the liberal’s ability to switch to instant freak-out if they find out you aren’t of like mind. Somewhat like the notorious berserker nature of pit-bull dogs.

    Being shunned by life-long friends and relatives is quite an eye opener. Although I respect their right to do so I can’t yet fathom the priority that their politics is such that they choose to put themselves on a war footing with me.

    The country does seem to be polarizing into American vs Anti-American camps. There is no useful dialog left, only name calling and hatred. Now I am forced to define myself as never before required. So yes I am White, male, married (to a real woman), and by definition The Enemy.
    So be it.

    If this country has a SHTF moment, the country may not survive intact.

    I can’t stand to watch TV anymore or go see movies. I am picky about what old TV stuff I watch and watch with a critical eye eg I like the old Invaders series but I see the aliens now as cultural Marxists. I also do not want my hard earned shekels to go to anyone or anything that makes our world and the future for our children unsafe, degenerate or stupid. I am also picky about food etc I don’t want us to become economic units with differing paint jobs. We should have unique cultural and spiritual inheritances, safe in our own countries.

      Actually, at least some of the writers on The Invaders saw the same thing you do. This is extremely clear in the episode “The Ivy Curtain,” which features a training center for aliens where they are taught how to undermine American culture.

        Yes. In the training they went to pains to make the youth “rebelliousness” seem not too over the top. It does depict academic group think quite well. Also the episode where he is shown an illusion and promised everything he could want as an architect/engineer in terms of irrigating a desert valley. He rejects the offer as an illusion but it does highlight the old attitude of modernising for an admittedly smaller and largely White civilisation compared to California today. Watching old shows like this also should help us understand what the young western people have as an image of the future, grown out of a dysfunctional and spiritually empty present. I take my hat off to those “woke” young people of today.
