Unholy Alliance Revisited

The children of Che Guevara were in Iran joining forces with the jihad when an Iranian speaker said that Che was “a truly religious man who believed in God and hated communism and the Soviet Union.” At this point Che’s daughter, Aleida, said “My father never mentioned God; He never met God.” (H/T Fausta.)

The Guevara children were quickly “whisked away.” Later, Aleida “insisted that ‘progressists everywhere’ focus on fighting America rather than probing each other's personal beliefs.” Recommended reading: The Unholy Alliance.

As I wrote on DD's blog: "The left is now driven by nihilism. After socialism has failed and the Berlin Wall fell, the left had nothing left but its visceral irrational hatred of capitalism and America. Multiculturalism is merely a means of rejecting the West, environmentalism is merely a means of rejection the industrial revolution and science, affirmative action is merely a means of rejecting standards of excellence, and their sympathy for the 7th century theocratic barbarian Islamists is the ultimate rejection of Enlightenment ideas. And I haven’t even mentioned post-modernism!"

You've eloquently identified the methods and motives of those I call the "anti(s)."

Whatever you are for, provided that you are for something beneficial to individual humans, they're against.

As you correctly observe, this goes far beyond mere politics -- it is an all-embracing philosophy of (anti-)life

Hence, the term 'leftist' is today wholly inadequate.

Yes, it is inadequate. It doesn't even hint at the nihilism.

Anyone post 1793 AD that doesn't immediately equate leftism with stupidity is pretty slow on the uptake anyway.

What this planet needs is a "Positive 1848" a series of civil wars and revolutions in all major countries (especially the Anglosphere) in which the liberty lovers and radical capitalists remove with great violence the Left from all positions of authority and trust in all the nations of the world.

After that comes about we will ask everyone only one question: "Are you a Leftist?" The answer will determine whether or not they will face death before a firing squad.

"Murder," you say? I say, "Justice!"

How often in the past have the Producers been stood up against the Wall by the Parasites and shot like dogs? It's about damn time for some paybacks and the complete destruction on a planetary scale of all forms of socialism.

The only good Red is a dead Red.

I dunno. Organized firing squads seem a bit too government-solution for me.
