Quote of the day—Sarah A. Hoyt

I’ve said before that the left in the twenty first century seems to have a curious form of autism, in which groups are essential, and people who belong to groups are interchangeable widgets.

Not only that, but they have the duty of being interchangeable widgets. How else do you explain the left calling someone a race or gender “traitor” for not thinking exactly the thoughts the left assigned them?

This is a great part of their mind reading schtick. If you oppose them, they know that you wish for the exact opposite of what they claim to want, and therefore you must for sure want the opposite.

So, say you say something like “Sure, we should encourage girls, but we can encourage boys too.”  Because — being binary — by “encourage girls” they mean “promote female supremacy” they KNOW that you want to promote male supremacy.

Keep pushing, leftists.

The backlash from this is going to be epic.

And you’ll never see it coming.

The Binary Mind of the Left
[Interesting observation.

This is a least partially consistent with my claim the political left has all the characteristics of an individual with a personality disorder. In this case it’s the parts about them thinking they can read your mind and “black-and-white” thinking (“binary mind” in Hoyt’s post). That is common in Borderline Personality Disorder. Some of these other characteristics are a good match too:

Here are some of the ones that really jump out at me:

People with BPD often engage in idealization and devaluation of others, alternating between high positive regard for people and great disappointment in them.

They “throw people under the bus” at the first hint of “betrayal”.

People with BPD act impulsively because it gives them the feeling of immediate relief from their emotional pain.

Riots anyone?

People with BPD tend to have trouble seeing a clear picture of their identity. In particular, they tend to have difficulty knowing what they value, believe, prefer, and enjoy.

Principles? They have no clue what your are talking about.

BPD is related to lower functioning and disability…

Look at the demographics. Poor, unemployed, and even unemployable.—Joe]

  1. Add narrative (alternate reality?) to your list.

    Today it is the 1619 narrative that is becoming popular. It postulates that everything we have was built by slaves and that our culture was designed by white men to suppress and oppress (that includes the 2nd so that slave owners would have the advantage).

    • So since everything was built by slaves, that explains why the vast majority of industry in this country is located in states that never allowed the holding of slaves. Hmmm. Industry really did not begin significant migration to Southern states until after the Civil Rights Amendment was passed. Could that possibly be associated with the lack of consistent, fair and effective government and hence society was and is dependent on guaranteed civil rights? Looking at how civil rights have become a media and political football today, perhaps our industrial advantage in the entire country is at risk and our society at large as well.

  2. It’s far to wide spread to be something like autism. Or some mental disorder. It tracks more like public schools policy and procedure manual?
    You remember the girl that spent 2 years up in a redwood tree to keep it from being harvested? When she finally came down some called her a traitor to the cause. 2 years in a freaking tree!
    The sad facts are autism, useful idiotism, and evil all have the same penalty.

  3. ” The backlash from this is going to be epic.” This is only the beginning 800,000 register for Trump’s Tulsa rally.

  4. “Look at the demographics. Poor, unemployed, and even unemployable.”

    I think it’s a slightly different dynamic at play. A lot of these ANTIFA types suffer from unrealized expectations. They come from ‘good’ families, with successful parents. They’re trustifarians. They’ve been told their entire lives by everyone around them, that they can ‘do anything’, or ‘follow your heart and success will follow’. Then the real world hits them in in the face like a ton of bricks. Success takes HARD work that they aren’t willing to put in. Following your heart doesn’t mean phuck all if you’re producing something no one else wants to buy. They spend $200k on a worthless degree, end up a barista, or a ‘struggling artist’ and wonder what happened. Their brain can’t process their failure because it doesn’t jive with their inflated ego, and they decide the problem CAN’T be THEM, so it must be ‘THE SYSTEM’ that’s broken.

    Example: all the calls for “more funding for the ‘arts'”… really: think about that for a second. How bad must your ‘ART’ be if only the government would buy it, and even then only under duress?

  5. “… groups are essential, and people who belong to groups are interchangeable widgets” — that’s the principle underlying labor unions.
