The Left Lies

When the truth disagrees with your agenda, you can grow (change) or lie. The left usually chooses the latter.
When the truth disagrees with your agenda, you have a dilemma which is to change/grow and go with the facts, or just lie because your agenda is more important than the truth. To stay leftist requires the latter. There's too much evidence against too many parts of what they believe.

Another way of looking at it, is the left lives in an Alternate Reality

Why do they lie?[edit | edit source]

Imagine the truth is not on your side and thus you can't win the war with facts and logic, but you still want to win? What would you do?

Well, I wouldn't compromise myself and the truth. I'd rather lose honestly than win dishonestly. But that's why I'm not a good leftist. (It drove me away in my youth). But if you want to win more than you want to be an ethical or good person, then you just lie, twist, distort, obfuscate, ad hominem, and do whatever it takes to murder the truth and replace it with disinformation. Or what I simplify down to "just lie".

Of course, I'm not talking about every Democrat or leftist, net even every progressive; most Democrats (like most people) are just lazily plodding through life, and repeating what they hear on the news or from their friends. So they repeat lies, but they don't have the actual intent to deceive (they believe their own sides bullshit). But you can't be in a leadership position without having been exposed to the truth at some point. So whether politician, celebrity, or intellectual, they have had the opportunity to know better, and they chose the other path. If they didn't, they would learn, become moderates or conservatives, and their party would go extinct.

This article offers just a small sampling of the evidence, the false narratives, distortions, mistruths that are required to be adhered to in order to be a leftist in good standing. And the truth that contradicts their beliefs and requires them to be liars to remain a leftist.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

This belief is not anything new, here are a few quotes on it, though while fairly contemporary, still imply this idea is not exactly novel to just my way of thinking.

My Grandfather told me variants of it in the 1970's, and it was going back further:

  • Orwell, Ayn Rand, Frederick Hayek got it, and wrote about it in the 1930's on.
  • Frédéric Bastiat got it in the 1840's
  • About 400 B.C. Plato wrote, "Knowledge becomes evil if the aim be not virtuous" which was obviously written about an argument he had with a lefty

Of course many substitute Democrat, Liberal, Socialist, Progressive or the terminology of the day that fits the left -- but it is a truism that goes back for millennia for good reason. We need to explore what makes this truism so prevalent.

You can't handle the truth[edit | edit source]

Most politicians lie because the rewards for over-promising outweighs the costs for under-promising; the former gets attention and votes, the latter means you don't get elected. Plus politics requires compromising, including on things you promised: so they all under-deliver when their objectives meets the practical realities of what they can actually accomplish. Thus, I'm not saying that all right/conservative politicians are good, or all progressive/leftist politicians are bad. But there is an inherent difference, because of what they are promising.

Republicans have to lie to get elected by over-promising on what they'll accomplish. The public will vote for the candidate that promsises the most (aspires the hardest) so they promise what they'll try for, not what they'll get.

Democrats left have views that are far widely unpopular (they only play with subgroups). This is magnified the wider/broader the election is. They aren't catering to all America, but special intersectional interests (one at a time). So Republicans are often lying about how much they'll get done. Democrats are often lying about the actual direction or results.

Alternate History - There are really two different histories of America -- the one that I know existed based on extensive reading and studying of history, and the one that some of my left of center friends know by repeating what they were taught in School/Universities, what they read in their version of the media, or what they really want to believe, despite all evidence to the contrary.

When I read Howard Zinn, NYT (1619), or Karl Marx's view of the world -- it sounds like an average far-left intersectional Democrat's view of the world. While it has names in common with mine, the facts have been changed to protect the guilty and convict the innocent.

Without someone having an accurate understanding of the past, they have a distorted view of the present, and no ability to understand what's coming in the future. Which explains how they can demand such ruinous things with the glee of a cult follower reaching for their glass of flavor aid. Thus our realities will only occasionally intersect, and when they do, it's usually not a great reaction. Alt-History, Left Lies • [36 items]

Alt-Economics (Leftonomics) - These are alternate-reality economics that Fake Economists (usually leftist polemics) tell each other and their base. AKA Leftonomics. Never blame on malice that which is more easily explained by incompetence. But when you are an "expert" that knows the facts and repeat the fabrications anyways? Then malice (dishonesty) is all that's left. They know better.

ℹ️

Alternate Equality - The left thinks handicapping/punishing the successful makes life more fair/equal. It doesn't.

No one is going to deny there's inequality in the world. There's just different views on what to do about it. The left believe's it can be fixed if we surrender to a totalitarian state that we redistribute everything and make it more fair. The historically informed know that's never worked out before. Replacing a sloppy meritocracy (and being able to pass your wealth to your heirs) with a politocracy, where the politicians decide who gets what, never makes it better for anyone but the political elite. Both are a plutocracy of sorts, just to climb the ladder on one requires talent, effort and luck, and in the other it requires political connections and dedication to the herd agenda.

So what kind of world do you want your kids to live in? Where there's injustices against success, based on politics (the left's utopia). Or where there's injustice based on some people being smarter, stronger or just working harder? (the right's reality) For me? I'd rather live in the real world and latter one, than any utopia created autocratic lefties, because to date, none of those have ended well for individuals. Inequality, Left Lies • [15 items]

There's real liberty, and the left's version (Alternate Liberty) - they have very little in common.

Real liberty is about arguing with people who don't do what you want, but letting them do it anyways. Telling them not to say things, or arguing against it, but letting them do it anyways. It's about championing your causes, by trying to win in public opinion, not using the tyranny of the majority (50%+1 of votes) to force laws or authority to take away their right to do it. Remember, a law/regulation/tax is the point where a bully says, "do it, or I'll have this government goon take you property, liberty or life". Alt-Liberty, Left Lies • [18 items]

  • Fourth Amendment - Democrats/left are so against the 2A, that they're willing to sacrifice all our other civil rights, including the 4th.

  • Smoking - Persecuting smoking and smokers is a modern witch hunt among the left, to the point of being anti-Science.


ℹ️

There's the real people, and the Alernate People (aka the version of people the left believes in) - There are really two different versions of people/personalities: the one that I know existed based on extensive reading and studying of that person (and sometimes not even very extensively), and the fictional person that some of my friends know by repeating what they were taught in School/Universities, by the media or social media or popular beliefs, or what they really want to believe.

Them being wrong, is fine. Nobody knows everything. (Self included). The bigger issue is how do they deal with new evidence? Do they deal with it, with excitement and curiousity and validate the points and stop repeating the lie. Or do they put ego and agenda (or popular opinion amongst their clique), above the truth and reality?

One of the biggest differences is that if your currency/idendity is built around consensus, popularity (popular opinion) and leftist/youth influences (where change/progress matters more than the lies you have to tell to get change), then they are extremely resistant to new information. That's the problem. I don't care if someone doesn't know something. But if they don't want to know something? Well then they're not a sentient (self-aware) human, they are just fool or a tool.

Without someone having an accurate understanding of the past (or people they cherish/vilify), they have a distorted view of the present, and no ability to understand what's coming in the future. They live in a different reality that can only intersect with the hostility that their ego/insecurity demands. They know the same names of people that I know, but with different histories and thus perceptions of them (some events/actions omitted, others imagined in). And if they don't welcome revision to their world view, then they are just a cult follower reaching for their glass of flavor aid. Thus our realities will only occasionally intersect, and when they do, it's usually not to anyone's benefit. They wont drink from the chalice of knowledge, and I won't gulp from their goblet of ignorance. Alt-People, Left Lies • [33 items]

ℹ️

  • The left likes to pretend that the Republicans are anti-Science party, and that the Democrats are pro-Science. But while there are pro and anti-science people on both sides of the aisle, facts show that Democrats/Left will put agenda above anything (Family, Country, or Science) far more often or vocally than the Conservative/Right.
  • Q: What do you get when you cross science and politics? A: Politics. Putting the politicians in control of science funding (running funding from the Federal government), is politicizing science. Who wants more central control of Science?
    • Much of the real fight is about using Science funding to advance a political agenda; a proxy war for causes that the Left/Democrats/media support, and the right and public opposes, so they use faux Science as the excuse for force. You get what you incentivize. If you care about real science, you should support taking the politics (and politicians money) out of "science".
  • You can tell who is more anti-Science by just arguing facts and see how they respond to data that doesn't fit their agenda. Do they appeal to emotion (or use emotional arguments), or appeal to facts/data? Do they want more debate and both sides, or to "fact check" / censor the opposition? Does new information cause view revision, or do they attack the apostate? The left was called bleeding-heart and knee-jerk for reasons: appeals to emotion and demand for action before understanding is anti-science, and works better on the left than the right.

Conclusion[edit | edit source]

🗒️ Note:
I realize facts won't sway people: especially if they're not wrapped in a delicious candy coating -- which I rarely do. But my goal is not to sway the people that don't want to challenge themselves or be swayed. This is for those who are frustrated by dishonesty, or that sincerely want to consider to the other sides best shots. Offering many dozen examples of truth, are my best shots.

These are just a fraction of the examples I could come up with over time. And the best examples of the other side vary by degrees. Like :

  • Trump: "He would build a wall, and Mexico would pay for it." He technically didn't. (Gotcha). But he did save at least that wall amount, by changing NAFTA and the Tarrif Structure. (So they kinda did). More than that, it signaled direction of stronger immigration and leveraging tarrifs/trade to get it -- but not quite outcome. We can debate whether the trade deal got enough money out of it to pay for it or that "remain in Mexico" had them eating much of the costs. But not all. So there is plausibility, but it was an exageration of honest intent.
  • Obama: lied about "being against gay-marriage" entirely, or "not wanting a healthcare mandate", or "if you like your doctor/plan, you can keep your plan", or that "it wouldn't cost one red cent" to the deficit (and it was $1.5T/decade). - These were lies not only in degrees, but in complete direction. And if you read anything about his background on the issues, they were bald face lies when he was saying. (There was zero intent at even trying).
  • Biden: was worse with being "a great uniter", healing, not going to mandate vaccines/masks, being transparent, not going to be open borders or raise taxes, and so on. Just 100% false.

Democrats can't get elected telling the tuth, so they don't. Then they try to gaslight everyone that they never said that, or when caught, that they delivered it when they didn't. Republicans aren't saints, and change their minds. But 80% of what the media screams loudest about, isn't a lie by their standards on Democrats, and if it is, it's still got much, much more truth in intent or direction.

🗒️ Note:
I dislike dishonesty almost as much as I dislike hypocrisy (including reductio ad absurdum and straw-man attacks). So my point here is NOT to misrepresent or exaggerate the entire left, even in degrees. This is my sincere take of what the vocal left screams at me regularly, from the News, protests or their movies/shows/articles/books. Also, in none of this am I pretending the right/Republicans/Conservatives/Libertarians don't have warts or problems of their own. Of course they do. I can create a much smaller list and less sever list on the right, but it does exist. The difference is the media calls them on it, and my right of center friends often concede to honest criticisms. Thus, I have far fewer problems with the right's dishonesty/hypocrisy in scale, scope and reaction.
