Here, at last, from PJTV’s Klavan on the Culture, the one conspiracy theory no one has dared to talk about before… possibly because it’s insane.
Justin Folk does the sinister backgrounds.
What was that last city? It sounded like Camden but oddly pronounced.
Compton. One of the scores of independent cities Los Angeles County. It’s South of Watts community in the city of L.A. (of which you may already know).
He said Compton. You know, in Los Angeles.
Andrew, you’ve done it again! You’ve gone and told the truth again … shame on you! Of course, liberals and progressives will fail to see your tongue planted firmly in cheek and probably brand you racist – their only comeback when confronted with truth. Keep it comin’!
So, you do believe that liberals and progressives truely build plans that work solely to undermine the american way of life. I realize the lack of purpose in my argument because you’re set in your mind what is and what is not. But as a former democrat and still a progressive I can tell you this, progress isnt a bad thing, progress is what birthed america, progress is why you can retire instead of working your entire life and progress is the reason why honest Abe freed the slaves and finally progress is why we’re looking to find cures for diseases rather than saying God wanted you to get sick. Maybe you should consider thinking universally rather than what is in your own best interest.
Progress to a liberal means progressing from the rule of law or the constitution of the land. A liberal thinks it’s outdated and living and breathing. Which is why we see the current lawlessness around all the cities run by liberals. Detroit, Chicago, New York. Should I go on? Progress to a liberal is allowing millions of illegals to violate our laws because they believe they have a right to be here illegally. If all this is progress, you can keep it.
I understand what you are saying, and you are right, but in the same way that “racist” will most likely be attributed to the truth in this video from the Liberals, you need to understand that progress is not the same as progressive as defined by the left. Socialism is actually older and has failed enough now that if looked at through a “reality check” approach, it would no longer be pursued and the pure Democratic Republic of our founding fathers, and the decentralized power of our country’s birth would be pushed on both sides of the aisle. In the name of progress.
Progressives will never understand; it’s in their DNA.
Well said, Bryan — and thank you: Progressives are progressives because they are for progress. I’ve always been anti-bad things, but I’ve been stymied at finding the true a path for my positive efforts. This has been very helpful. From now on, I will be careful to consider political worthiness based on the group’s name: What a grand and deceptively simple organizing principle. It certainly clears up the need to address facts and history as your response admirably demonstrates. (But just to be clear — maybe progressives should consider adding “pro-good things” to their moniker.)
My belief is that liberals’ and progressives’ plans result in the undermining of American values, and the values of free enterprise, because of a set of core beliefs based in fantasy and the desire to appear to be morally superior.
The fantasy is that, “truth,” rather than being based in concrete fact, is a construct, a “narrative,” of the prevailing (Western) culture: hence the historicist argument that Europeans purposely destroyed a agrarian and peace-loving Native American culture; that America is, “culturally imperialist,” (rather than admitting cultural exports are largely a function of the marketplace), and that racism is more rampant here, rather than, say, France, where, “Asians,” are segregated in ghettos by a truly racist French culture.
The desire to be morally superior can be best summed up in what an old friend of mine, a Liberal, said of Political Correctness. When I said PC was unjust, hiis response was to say he always thought of it as simply, “being nice.”
As for being, “set in your mind what is and what is not,” this is a general argument about existentialist principles, meaningless and banal. And finally, the notion that historical American, “progress,” although being the root word in “progressive,” means the same thing, is just dimwitted.
“Progress,” meant something very different to Carnegie or Ford or Harriman, or Teddy Roosevelt; men with widely disparate interests, but who competed for market share, and to whom, “progress,” meant an improvement in the material well-being of most Americans.
The idea that, “progressivism,” is the same as, “progress,” is a fundamental and simpleminded mistake, analogous to saying, “niggardly,” has a racist meaning since it’s spoken sound is similar to a racist epithet. Typical of the liberal notion that anything that makes people feel bad, no matter how wrongheaded that feeling may be– is a bad thing and needs to be corrected by government intervention, rationale notwithstanding.
The meaningless psychobabble of an Oprahfied turn of phrase like, “thinking universally,” is simply to obtuse to bother addressing, and the construct, “…rather than what is in your own best interest,” is emblematic of the kind of conceit, based in denial of the human condition, to which I refer above: this guy thinks he’s smarter and morally better than someone who sees the, “human condition,” as based in self-interest.
Someone like, for instance, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, or John Adams.
Happy Independence Day.
Progressives are progressives because they know “liberal” is a dirty word.
So now that they have ditched the term “liberal” and adopted the name “progressive,” we are just going to concede that we are anti-progress? Their ability to believe their own rhetoric really is boundless, isn’t it? I am against them, so I am “anti-progress,” and thus, pro-polio…. PLEASE!
Great videos! Love your work.
Andrew: Please turn your piercing WHITE light on another conundrum: why is it that Jews vote Democrat? FDR was not even a closet antisemite but Jews treated him like a demigod. He refused to intervene in any way with the death camps and American Jews cooperated with him by refusing to acknowledge what was widely known by 1942, by which time more than a million Jews had already been murdered. Now that is a patriotism that knows no bounds or limits. Seems quite similar to the response of blacks to their own tormentors. Now you suggest for black people voting democrat is a subtle strategy to destroy their tormentor. Possibly you are right and they are fiendishly clever. But what is the motive of Jews who are widely characterized as supersmart and conspiratorial? I await your answer.
Dennis Prager gave a rather perceptive answer to this puzzling dilemma:Most American Jews are secular minded.But they are religious at the same time.Contradiction?Not neccesarily.A secular person can be just as orthodox in his worldview as a religious individual.It just so happens that secular religiosity leads to Leftism.Please note that a disproportionate numbers of Jews were represented in the anti communist/McCarthy hearings so much so that these “witchhunts” were derided as anti Semitic!
Then,mMany Jews were recent immigrants from Europe where memories pogroms instigated by blood libels were fresh.They had the swallowed the Islamic propaganda that Jews had it better in the Muslim world hook,line and sinker.This is a half truth at best and a false hood at worst.But it explains why American Jews sympathise with Muslims but seek to undermine Christianity within U.S.
Also track the support of American Jews for Israel when it was left leaning (supported by the Soviets until 1956,kibbutzes,predominance of Labor(LABOR!!) party,secular founding fathers,socialistic economy etc).In the late 70s as it started shifting to the right (Likud party,increasing power of religious Jews and support of American evangelicals,free market reforms of Israeli economy) American Jewish support for the Zionist state became increasingly lukewarm and half hearted.
A side note: Intermarriage and assimilation(a natural result of secularization) are severely diminishing the numbers of secular Jews.However religious Jews have a higher birth rate but tend to be less ambitious and accomplished.What future do these trends hold for American Jewry?
It amuses me that you consider the Jews to be “supersmart” and then assume you’re smarter than them and question their motives. Perhaps you should question your own perspective instead? I don’t mean to imply that they’re smarter, I’m only suggesting you listen to your own argument at least a little bit.
Now, to that bit about how the Jews should hate FDR for not fighting immediately in World War II, you seem to assume that the Jews are a group of people separate from the rest of the country. You forget that they are Americans as well, and many of them are proud to be so. Growing up in a Jewish family that came to America in the first half of the twentieth century, I had relatives that experienced the bad end of the holocaust first hand. It upsets me that you would assume and expect the Jewish people to band together against the country that we came to for a better life. Jews in America are Americans first, it was better for the American people to not enter the war, there is no reason they should be upset that American lives were thought of first and foremost. You upset me by assuming any American citizen would feel differently.
This past week I attended a live radio broadcast at the Nixon Library with Ann Coulter as a speaking guest. Amazingly timely, I was able to pose the same question to her on air, substituting blacks with Jewish Americans. She had a difficult time figuring that out also.
This is an interesting video. As usual, many of you conservatives miss the point.
The reason why Blacks always vote for Democrats is because Republicans never campaign in Black neighborhoods. Until a Republican candidate is willing to get out the vote on a Martin Luther King Blvd anywhere in the US, then the status quo will remain. I still shake my head at the fact that no Republican candidate in the 2008 Presidential election would present his/her views at the invitation of Tavis Smiley Republican forum. The Black community had many questions and concerns about the country and desired a response from the Republican candidates, and those voters were turned away.
And by the way… the Blacks that do leave Democratic big cities and move to Republican suburbs continue to vote Democrat when they move.
Refer to “Mau Mauing the Flak Catchers”, by Tom Wolfe. Race riots persuaded municipal and the national governments to create income transfer programs, most of whose beneficiaries were black. Yet, the real plum wasn’t to be one of the beneficiaries of programs like Model Cities, but to get an administrative job in them. Such a job has much more security, more pay and benefits, than the private sector offers. This taught black people to think of government not as a provider of services but as a provider of jobs, so they naturally flock to the party which wants to make government employ as many people as possible. The many failures of government to provide adequate services doesn’t disturb them since to them government is a provide of jobs, not services.
the unfortunate offspring of liberalism and america’s blacks is being black has become an excuse for miscreant behavior. the horrors occuring on a routine and daily basis in our urban areas should shock us, but we ingest it with little more than a shrug. there were 25 shootings in philly last weekend, including 5 deaths (this doesn’t include stabbings)a toll higher than afghan and irag. we should be so ashamed of this, yet it’s relegated to page five in my local paper. drugs, black on black violence, violent crimes against and commited by children, no fathers present, and the number of abortions in the black communities, it’s like an episode of the twilight zone. where is the outrage? thanx to the dems, the klan is obsolete. no matter what the blood or crip member does, it’s not his fault, the poor thing. god help us. this situation is the strongest argument against gun control, as law abiding americans need to defend themselves against this plague.
Blacks vote for dems because dems buy their vote! Food stamps. Section 8 housing. Welfare! etc etc etc.
So now you want to tell Black people how to vote?? you degenerate racist animals will never learn, and you’ll never understand, because we won’t let you understand. We’re less than 12% of the population and you’re scared to death of our strength. I’m glad that you think you know whats going on in the Black community, cause you really have no idea. BTW, you think owning guns will save you with whats about to happen??? You’re on the losing side of history and you don’t even know it… and I thank you for that!
An actual comment on the actual video.
Yes. Words matter and letting your opponent control what words mean is fighting on their, uh, terms. In Clinton’s first term, Hillary continually referred to right centrists as “far right”. It’s time we returned the favor.
I would love the Klaven and PJ TV videos, but even at the lowest resolution, I don’t get more than 4 sec. before a buffer load interruption. FIX YOUR SERVERS or give them some vitamins or something.
