Most Leftists are swimming in these waters. That’s what Leftism is all about! THAT is what the Lefty fever swamps breed in people. Let’s not feign being shocked.
As a marketing ploy, Leftism is all about fairies and unicorns. And that fools a lot of people. But scratch a Leftist and a millimeter below the skin you find a raging despot–you find Pol Pot with the Cambodian killing fields, and voter fraud.
Don’t believe me? Just look at the FBI and the IRS!
In fact, a new study informs, Stalin has much psychopathic (and narcissistic) company among leftists, including among today’s variety. Moreover, the researchers found that authoritarian-minded left-wingers often don’t care a whit about the altruism and “social justice” they trumpet, but instead “use political activism to endorse or exercise violence against others to satisfy their own ego-focused needs.”
There has ALWAYS been a prominent streak of violence in Leftists. In fact, there IS no Leftism without violence and force. At heart, Leftism is at war with moral agency! It has ALWAYS been so. That is not the advertising message of the Left, but it is the truth!
