The Real Agenda of the Left: What Do They Really Want?

I'm so glad that Barack Obama made that speech last winter about how we need a more civil tone in politics with less partisanship, less violent rhetoric and less demonizing of the opposition. I complemented him for it at the time here.

So let's just check out how things are going in terms of contemporary political discourse. I considered many statements by left-wing looney tunes but these three seemed to be the worst.

1. Here is Michael Moore calling for the government to go after rich people and lead them away in handcuffs. What for? For committing crimes? No, for being rich. He wants the US to be like countries like Cuba or the USSR where the government can just take your wealth away if they feel like doing so. I can't embed the video, but you can see it here. It is just over 2 minutes of totalitarian propaganda.

2. Here is North Carolina Democratic Governor Bev Perdue calling for congressional elections to be suspended so congress can do what it wants to get the country back on track without worrying about answering to voters. Watch it here.

3. Here is Roseanne "Robespierre" Barr advocating re-education camps and ultimately beheadings for "the rich."

So Michael Moore is a moderate Marxist because he just wants the rich jailed, whereas Roseanne Barr is the radical Marxist who wants them beheaded. And an elected Democratic Governor calls for suspending elections.

It is good every once in a while to reflect on what the opposition is like and why the culture wars matter. If good people sit back and do nothing, it is possible to see great evil unleashed in our midst. November 2012 can't come soon enough.
