Profiles in Crazed Far Left ‘Thinking’

Posted by iusbvision on July 30, 2008

UPDATE – “Think Progress” censored (read removed) the link to us that contained the CNS News Service article that showed how the Obama Campaign was paying women less than the men – in contrast to his rhetoric on the issue. Apparently “Think Progress” can’t handle any inconvenient facts posted by their readers and just censor them. We did not post the link to our post on their site, one of their readers did. I would like to thank “Think Progress” for proving my point about the far left’s love affair with censorship. Obviously progress does not include the First Amendment or a substantive dialogue.

Examine this link above and also be sure to look at the comments.

This post above is not unusual and is typical of the tactics of the far left. It claims or overtly implies that President Bush hates women, in spite of the fact that he is married to one and has two daughters. There is no attempt to examine the reasons why a Bush adviser recommended that the bill be vetoed. Bills have sections all the time that can result in unintended consequences or have amendments that make a bill unacceptable.

For example – I was hoping that the President would Veto the Fannie/Freddie bail out bill. Fannie and Freddie Mae, both government sponsored corporations, have been funneling millions of dollars to lobbyists, politicians and think tanks and most were of the far left variety. Government sponsored corporations should not be kicking back to politicians or engage in any partisan activity. The tax payers bail it out and they intern send money to partisans. There is a term for that, its called sanctioned corruption. Its a scam. Of course if Bush did veto the bill far left outfits would say that Bush is against housing or some stupidity like that. I will have a full post on this corruption tomorrow.

Now lets go back to the link and examine the post made by “Shayne”.

A poster had linked an article that we here at the Vision posted from CNS News, a well known news wire service. It explained how Obama was paying women in his campaign less than men which is contrary to his rhetoric. Here is the link to our article.

So did the far left poster Shayne examine the facts presented to see if it was true?? No.

Did Shayne even mention that we were merely quoting other reliable sources? No.

Shayne decides that its easier to attack us for posting it, calls us liars and asks that the comment with our link in it be flagged so it could be censored.

To complete his sophistry, Shayne in the most predictable fashion, makes the obligatory NAZI reference as well, which I always find amusing because Nazism is just another form of far left socialism.

As we have been cataloging carefully here, the far left both on and off campus either wants to censor others, or attempts to more and more often. Attempts to revive the so called “Fairness Doctrine” to silence talk radio is an example. Episodes of censorship, discrimination and retaliation on college campuses by the far left are now commonplace. It is so bad that California has been passing legislation drafted by Dr. Leland Yee to help prevent censorship and retaliation by university administrations against faculty that stand up for the free speech rights of students. The University of California is fighting the law ( links here and here ).

The Alliance Defense Fund had to create a special division solely dedicated to campus abuses.

Students for Academic Freedom works to protect the freedoms of students and to encourage a partisan disconnect in academia so that college faculty behave as educators and not as a political party.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education is so busy that it cannot act on or investigate all of the inquiries submitted to it.

If you take issue with leftist nonsense, usually they have no interest in dealing with the facts, in fact if you look at the comments in the thread below our leftist friend KC would not engage me on the facts I presented that he found inconvenient. Instead it was easier for him to call the writer a pig and go on posting as if the inconvenient facts exposing how incorrect he was never existed.

This is how a radicalized far left does business. If you dare disagree with them, they are out to destroy you. They call you names like Nazi, bigot, etc as a warning to others that it is dangerous to disagree with them. In short, they use every Orwellian tactic in the book.

The best way to fight these people is aggressively and boldly. If Shayne had any effective critical thinking skills, perhaps he would not have to resort to such tactics, but unfortunately in too many universities, just as in the Wayne State lawsuit we reported on, students learn this behavior while in college. Part of that reason is because too many colleges and faculty are trying to make careers and not minds.
