Our Moral Superiors™

This was a comment I wrote on a previous post:

Here’s the thing that bothers me: Like anybody else, I’m just trying to work for a living and pay my bills and raise my children. And yet they won’t leave us alone. The Left’s constant war of aggression against “bourgeois … upper-class hegemony,” their implacable hostility to Christianity, the family and the other institutions of American society, means that we can never have a moment’s peace.
Constantly, we find the Left dividing us, demanding that we choose sides and accusing us of hateful selfishness if we do not join their crusades to destroy American society.
They yell “Civil rights!” And you are a RACIST if you don’t support whatever agenda the Left is pushing. They yell “Economic equality!” And you are a CAPITALIST OPPRESSOR who hates working people if you don’t support the Left’s agenda. “Gay rights!” You’re an ignorant prejudiced HOMOPHOBE. “Women’s rights!” You’re a MISOGYNIST who hates women.
The Left’s agenda is always about accusing us — ordinary Americans just going about our daily lives — of hateful selfishness. Accuse! Accuse! Accuse!
Once you start noticing this pattern, eventually you feel the need to ask these “progressive” activists a simple question: “Who are YOU to accuse ME?”
What gives these people the moral authority to accuse honest law-abiding citizens of “oppressing” others? What acts of unselfish generosity have these “progressives” ever done, that would qualify them as such exemplary characters as to judge us?
Who elected them the Official Arbiters of Social Justice?
They have no credibility.
Closely examine these “progressive” loudmouths and, over and over, what you find is either (a) they’re some born-rich snob who attended an elite private college your kids could never afford, (b) they’re employed by some government agency or tax-exempt organization so that it is their professional career to lecture us about our alleged moral inferiority, or (c) they’re some kind of lunatic pervert.
Oh, I almost forgot (d) all of the above.
Damn these people and damn their “progressive” agenda. They aren’t better than the rest of us and, in most cases, they’re just lazy arrogant narcissists who want to bask in public admiration for telling everybody how morally inferior we are to them.
Damn them. Damn them all to hell.

Never mind what inspired that. Hit the freaking tip jar.

    Oh Geez. I thought the Kimberlin thing was finally finished.

    He’s still … Kimberlinning.

  • Adobe_Walls

    Well that’ll certainly fill your spare time.

  • Matt_SE

    Leftists are beyond the pale.
    At the risk of being hyperbolic, they really should be ostracized. Actively shunned by the rest of society. I can’t speak for the rest of society, but I do my part.

    They absolutely are NOT better than us.

    I think that’s how Vermont became a state.

    What there was of it.

    I have long defined a progressive as a pacifist who leaves no one in peace.

  • Dana

    But they know that they are.

  • Squid Hunt

    They also know that the truth is up for vote by the collective.

  • ericjg623

    Good points. Unfortunately, too many conservatives let the left wingers get away with this. Conservatives too often make the mistake of thinking political arguments are best won by debating facts and policy, whereas left wingers have hit upon the much more effective tactic of attacking the motives of their enemies. It’s the classic case of bringing a knife to a gunfight.

    They also know that they are guaranteed the 47% who are either complete sycophants or bought-off-with-welfare. Mitt Romney made a mistake about telling the truth where it could be recorded, but it was the truth nevertheless.

    You should have Thomas Sowell’s “The Vision of the Anointed” as the Amazon book link for this article.
