Avoid expressing yourself around left, liberal and radical variants as they believe in a "diversity" of their own opinion and not yours or mine.
Here's a real old favorite from Saturday September 29 2007 that Mark Steyn once linked too as 'Reader Of The Week'. It's a neat little piece that really gave me a boost to keep on writing even if nobody else wanted me to. It's a piece that shows I was entirely correct then and that it's simply much, much worse now. As you may already dig, I'm as the blog header says a Peter Cook, P.J O'Rourke, Groucho Marx, Mark Steyn etc, kinda a guy. As Steyn has said, the only diversity that matters is a a diversity of opinion.
So naturally, the following empirical analysis is as clear as day around here in inner-city urban Groovyville. Hey, now not everyone round these here part's has been infected via a pod from outer space meaning mass leftardism, but er, most probably are at least to some extent and often without even realizing it, I'm afraid. It does give another level of meaning to podcast. Eerily, it's now a cast of million's. Ah, the left are nothing if not totalitarian fascistic control freaks at heart. Yes, freaks. Sometimes I wake up laughing, screaming or both.
[Link to older versions of the same post with a dozen great comments including one from an 'Anonymous" pod person who insists as I write in this post that "I haven't noticed anything. It all seems normal to me".] Of course.
The first sign is that they're not really that prone to showing enthusiasm and joy. No really. I mean real uninhibited energy and an excitement about the future and its potential. Basically, being a damned complete and alive human being. It’s as if they're living in a depressive envelope with some idea that life as it is, is all wrong, basically doomed and cancerous and must therefore end. And at the same time there's an odd smug conceit, as if there is an inevitable 'truth' to their nightmarish viewpoint.
There's also the creepiest implied undertone, unspoken, but it’s clearly all there in their posturing. It is assumed that they are part of a growing under-group inexorably destined to reach critical mass and you, and everything about you is irrelevant and expendable.
Now, they don’t say anything as such in general conversation of course, unless you touch on almost any serious, important or adult topic. In the end though, you soon see that anything and I do mean anything, can be extrapolated onto their relentlessly negative and peculiar default stream of explanatory style. But usually you don’t even get the preamble. It’s just straight to the high pitched sound they all emit.
If you live in the inner-city as I said I do, there will be few people that you can talk to about this. Most people will look at you blankly and say, "I don't understand what you mean. I haven't noticed anything. It all seems normal to me". Well, it would. That's because many of them are er, THEM.
And just as in the best version of the movie ‘The Invasion of the Body Snatchers', [from 1974 starring Donald Sutherland] the instant you speak and reveal yourself as having any depth of individuality and difference, they point at you and their mouths open wide, denouncing you to the unseen crowd. But the shrill sounds they let out only mean something to them and their alien and alienated group of conformist and mirrored vegetable spawn. But it’s all supposed to be for our own good. They babble endlessly and without any logical end to their interference, and that we’ll all be perfectly happy in their coming Marxist product sodden, left liberal progressive, Utopian madhouse.
What they push out so intensely and with a strange unnerving sense of panic are not words at all. Not with any natural humanity, expression or purpose, but a mindless repeating of a siren that drowns out your own voice and thoughts while stating overwhelmingly and repeatedly, “Here is the individual, the original and truly authentic man, woman and child whom the group has not completely hypnotised, suffocated, absorbed and eliminated as superfluous to plan”.
How could a mass sprouting of inhuman freaks with such an empty mechanical mindset in an obvious marching group think and lockstep get to such a percentage without anyone noticing? And my God, they’re in such positions of influence; in our schools, government, media and entertainment and so on.
These things amongst us all repeat the same absurd, contradictory, cold, manipulative, robotic, mass produced, stupid and horrible lies. How could obvious frauds get such a foothold on the fertile, red blooded, natural and the decent? How did they begin supplanting the productive, democratic and rational life with their monstrously fake sounds, their empty gestures, insane modifications and rules that leave us open to invasion by millions of other variant spores of the same species?
Speak to many of them in the daylight and they can seem normal, reasonable, almost...life-like. Unless of course you use keywords that express virile reality, fecund, important human values and time-proven traditions, and then they will instantly and hideously reel back, pointing at you, their faces contorted like a stretched bladder, wailing their insane, continuous screech as they begin mouthing out endlessly:
“YOU ARE THE ENEMY! DESTROY THE CONSERVATIVE FREE INDIVIDUAL HUMAN BEING! OOOOAAOAOAAAAAAAH!”
