(1) do you think left-wing politics is fundamentally about good economics? Do you think we need full employment, Keynesian macroeconomic management of our economies, a high wage economy, and an end to offshoring of our manufacturing and service jobs to the Third World by treasonous corporations and neoliberal governments?My friends, not only are you not alone, but there’s nothing wrong with you!
(2) are you a Bernie Bro who loved Bernie’s economic policies but thought the Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) were unhinged?
(3) are you tired of Postmodernist B.S. and being told that there is no such thing as objective truth or that “all cultures are equal”?
(4) are you tired of making excuses for SJW insanity and the craziness of identity politics?
(5) are you tired of Postmodernist leftists bashing “white male science”?
(6) do you think leftists who conflate culture with race and who then scream “racist” at any sensible criticism of bad cultural ideas are really stupid?
(7) are you tired of hearing how wearing sombreros, “culturally insensitive” Halloween costumes, or doing yoga are supposedly “racist” and “cultural appropriation”?
(8) have you had enough of hearing bizarre anti-white conspiracy theories from the regressive left that blame all our problems on the capitalist, white-male patriarchy and universal “institutional racism”?
(9) are you fed up with the hostility to free speech on the Left and its quasi-McCarthyite culture of political correctness?
(10) do you think some of the ideas of vicious, man-hating Third Wave Feminism have become unhinged?
(11) are you tired of hearing that Islamist terrorism has “nothing to do with Islam”? Are you getting sick and tired of the excesses of fundamentalist Islam in our societies?
(12) do you think – just like Bernie Sanders – that open borders is a lunatic, libertarian idea?
(13) do you think endless mass immigration to the West is ridiculous, out of control and not in our interests?
(14) at the same time, do you also hate those crazy libertarians, anarcho-capitalist nutjobs and conservative neoliberal vandals?
YOU are the future of the Left, not the regressive left or SJW loonies.
We need to take back control of the Left, reform it, and in the process rebuild the power and popularity of the Left – and so that the populist Conservatives do not sweep into power in the coming years.
Time to speak out and challenge other Leftists on their B.S. I bet we can convert most of these people too once they see sense.
Try speaking out on the issues one small step at a time. Do it diplomatically, in a measured, friendly way, and in a way that shows how we can defend our beliefs on perfectly good left-wing grounds.
