The American Left is imploding on itself, which is a good thing not merely because this implosion helps conservatism, but because an implosion, as opposed to an explosion, only harms the Left themselves, and has no negative affects on anyone else. We saw the Left begin to implode during its Operation Occupy Wall Street, and all the subsequent “Occupy” protests that followed throughout America. We saw the Left implode in Seattle, where it resorted to vandalism and property destruction; we saw the Left implode in Chicago during the NATO conference; and now we are seeing the Left implode in Portland, where a group of them, their mouths taped shut, sat in on a speech given by Erik Stakelbeck. What was their reason for sitting in, and why did they think their strategy of taping their mouths shut would accomplish anything?
When an avowedly Christian, pro-Israeli anti-terrorism expert comes to speak at a university that’s located in Portland, fireworks should be expected. Unfortunately for a group of protesters who decided to stage a walkout against terrorism expert Erick Stakelbeck, those fireworks blew up in their face.”
Watch the video:
Giving someone the “silent treatment”, as a form of protest, is a sheer act of cowardice. What that does is prove that the Left neither has anything valid to say, nor can it adequately defend its position, which, because they are liberals, is based purely on unstable and irrational emotions rather than build upon a foundation of substantive facts. The Left would not debate conservatives because they know they cannot, and they know they if they did, they would not be successful. In other words, how does the taping of mouths help demonstrate the quality of their argument against conservative principles, the proof of their argument against conservative principles, without ever uttering a word against conservative principles? How does anyone win a debate without ever uttering a single word?
Of course, they fully believe they did win, or at least, drove home their point. Watch and listen to their discussion:
The sheer lack of anything intelligent, anything provocative, anything other than juvenile (and less than amateur) in their remarks shows that they could not have held their own in a debate against Stakelbeck or in any debate against any conservative. This is why and how the Left implodes on itself. Now – these students obviously did not come to all these conclusions themselves. They were taught to think this way by other Leftist educators and instructors in the schools and universities they attend. Portland is, after-all, one of the most Leftist/liberal leaning cities in America.
What is fascinating, from a conservative outlook, is that while it is easy for a Leftist/liberal educator to brainwash a young person’s mind with lies, gross misinformation and nonsense, these same Leftist/liberals educators cannot seem to remove the emotional aspects from their rhetoric and replace that (emotions) with anything of a factual nature. Why would that be? And – although we know that, in the short-term, emotion-based propaganda can sway the masses to the Leftist side, how does it help the Leftist cause in the long run not to use facts?
Facts are what trip up Leftists, leave them tongue-tied, and the reason why they cover their mouths with tape instead of debating why think Stakelbeck is, and conservatives in general are, “racist”. We’ve long known Leftists have infiltrated the American educational system, and have been inculcated within the system for decades. They are banking on their majority influence in education as the means to further their Leftist agenda. The problem with this is – eventually these brainwashed kids leave those institutions and embark out into the real world, where they discover all they have been taught is in direct conflict and opposition to what is actually occurring outside those Leftist walls of higher learning.
While Leftists can “coddle” their young within the safety of the educational system, they cannot protect them after they have left the Leftist nest. On their own, they easily crumble and fall apart. And, as evidenced by these two videos, some of them, at least, easily crumble and fall apart even while still remaining within the safety of their Leftist nest.
Where does anyone see conservatives and conservative principles, ideals and values crumbling anywhere? Where does anyone see conservatives taping their mouths shut, afraid to debate with Leftists? Where does anyone see conservatives and conservatism imploding anywhere, and to the extent that Leftism and liberalism is in America?
When all a cause has is a mountain of lies to stand on, and atop of, and those lies begin to crumble and break apart, where else can that cause go, and the people who supported that cause but down into that open crater, that deep emptiness, left by those lies?
