The Left doesn't worry about any of this stuff. If they get the idea to go smash storefronts, they just do it. If they don't want Charles Murray or Ben Shapiro speaking at their school, they physically prevent it from happening. If they see a statue of Stonewall Jackson or something that they don't like, they just go smash it on their own. That nogette who took down the confederate flag from the South Carolina state house didn't ask for a permit, she just climbed the pole and grabbed it.
On the contrary, the left worries about all of that stuff and more. Do you know how much thankless behind-the-scenes hard work goes into pulling off one of those "spontaneous protests"?
Some Righties argue that we don’t need to learn from Lefties, because Righties are just better. You’ve heard it, I’m sure: “Lefties are weak, Lefties are cowardly, Lefties are afraid of work.” But absolutely none of that is true. Lefties are tough. Lefties are brave. Lefties are smart. Lefties are the hardest workers you’ll ever see.
Part of the issue here is cultural. Some of the ways Lefties get and use power are very culturally offensive to Righties. It’s hard to intellectually appreciate a difference in values when every fiber of your being is telling you that the other person is just being an asshole. And it’s hard to see the mechanics at work, because the press talks about Lefty movements and moments as if they magically just happen.
Righties don’t want to believe that. Thus, the same old horseshit: “oh it’s all George Soros.” “Oh we don’t get turnout for protests because we all have jobs.” “Oh we’d win a Second Civil War in five minutes anyway because the Lefties are wusses and we’ve got all the guns.”
It can’t possibly be that there’s work we need to do, work that we’ve been neglecting because we don’t understand how it works and we’re lazy. That’s unthinkable.
Well, think it. Because it’s true.
In fact, everyone ITT advocating to DO SOMETHING NOW needs to read that link.
