Once you understand that left leaning, “I’m With Her” comedians are the shock troops of progressivism, this all begins to make sense.
Their job is to push the boundaries when attacking anything that is not progressive so that, over time, attacks that seemed vile and unthinkable just a few years ago, aren’t even noticed.
F.A. Hayek wrote:
“A further point should be made here: Collectivism means the end of truth. To make a totalitarian system function efficiently, it is not enough that everybody should be forced to work for the ends selected by those in control; it is essential that the people should come to regard these ends as their own. This is brought about by propaganda and by complete control of all sources of information.”
Well, progressivism means the end of propriety and civility because nothing can be allowed to stand in the way of implementation of this form of collectivism. What purveyors of progressivism understand is that it is a massive Ponzi scheme, a massive multi-level marketing scheme from Hell, in which every citizen must be forced to participate – if even one person refuses the illusion, the fallacy of progressivism becomes evident.
As in the former Soviet Union, the citizen is never allowed to question the “plan” because any doubt is an act of disloyalty and even of treachery because others might also question the plan…and when the creators of the plan can’t answer the doubts, the game is over. This is why anyone seen as the enemy of the progressive plan must be destroyed by any means necessary – and ad hominem attacks are always where it starts.
Calling a the daughter of the President a “cunt”, would have been unthinkable prior to November 8, 2016. I can’t even imagine the calls for public hangings if Chelsea Clinton Mezvinsky or either of the Obama daughters were called such on a national television broadcast.
Never mind that this particular daughter is an accomplished businessperson on her own, used to pal around with Chelsea Clinton and champions several pet progressive causes (i.e. paid maternity leave and the wage gap). Ivanka’s speech at the 2016 GOP convention was progressive enough, Vanity Fair headlined an article “IVANKA TRUMP SOUNDED LIKE A DEMOCRAT AT THE R.N.C.”
But her crime is that she is a delicious, snack sized bag of President Cheeto and therefore must be destroyed…and anyone else who cuts against the progressive grain with her.
Yet these are the people who cry out for civility.
It is truly remarkable how the women of the progressive left seem to forget civility (and solidarity) when addressing a conservative (or any woman not 100% on board with the prog agenda). When the left saw Sarah Palin as a threat, she was rhetorically crucified when the New York Times implied she was behind the shooting of Gabby Giffords – and look at how many of the progressive left’s former “heroes” were allowed to #MeToo the hell out of women (and some men in the case of Kevin Spacey) while women who knew sat back and watched.
I think the case of Eric Schneiderman, the AG of New York – someone Samantha “Feckless Cunt” Bee touted as a “superhero”, pretty much sums it up. When one of his victims was discussing her situation with friends, they counseled her to “keep the story to herself” because Schneiderman was “too valuable a politician for the Democrats to lose.”
There is no Grand Wizard of Progressivism guiding these people, they do what they do because they are slaves to theocratic progressivism. This is their value system – and is service to those “values” nothing is off limits – they will say anything, do anything and believe anything as long as it advances the progressive truth (which is anything that advances the glorious progressive revolution).
Not one damn bit of what comes out of any progressive Democrat or Republican mouth is about bigotry, Islamophobia, homophobia, racism or sexism – it is all about the advancement of progressivism.
