A Liberal is Fed Up With Liberals

December 25, 2016


Liberalism today is a mask for Communism. Communism is a satanic cult based on Cabalist Judaism. A longtime liberal describes the cult-like behavior which led her to examine the conservative alternative

This perceptive letter was posted by Rod Dreher last week. He kept the authorship anonymous.

"November 8 and its aftermath revealed to me that I am just so tired of these people. I can't be like them, and I don't want my kids turning into them."

I'm a secular/agnostic Californian ... I want to share with you, from the liberal bastion of Northern California, that I am officially tired of the type of people who have surrounded me my entire life. In the wake of Trump's election, I am experiencing "tribe fatigue." I'm not tired of The Other, Detestable Tribe. I'm tired of my own.

A bit about me: I am a [deleted] with two young children. My parents were non-religious Democrats, and my ex-Catholic mom loathes organized religion to this day.

So I was raised a secular liberal. My college professors were secular liberals. During my journalism phase, my newspaper colleagues were secular liberals. My law school professors and peers were - in the vast majority - secular liberals. Almost everyone at my corporate law firm was a secular liberal. My California neighbors and friends are secular liberals, as are my colleagues. My mother, siblings, and their spouses are all secular liberals.

By all rights, I should be a member in good standing of their tribe, "liking" their Facebook posts and joining their candlelight vigils against the evil Trump Administration. But November 8 and its aftermath revealed to me that I am just so tired of these people. I can't be like them, and I don't want my kids turning into them.

I am tired of their undisguised contempt for tens of millions of Americans, with no effort to temper their response to the election with humility or empathy.

I am tired of their unexamined snobbery and condescension.

I am tired of their name-calling and virtue-signaling as signs of supposedly high intelligence.

I am tired of their trendiness, jumping on every left-liberal bandwagon that comes along (transgender activism, anyone?) and then acting like anyone not on board is an idiot/hater.

I am tired of their shallowness. It's hard to have a deep conversation with people who are obsessed with moving their kids' pawns across the board (grades, sports, college, grad school, career) and, in their spare time, entertaining themselves and taking great vacations.

I am tired of their acceptance of vulgarity and sarcastic irreverence as the cultural ocean in which their kids swim. I like pop culture as much as the next person, but people who would never raise their kids on junk food seem to think nothing of letting then wallow in cultural junk, exposed to nothing ennobling, aspirational, or even earnest.

I am tired of watching them raise clueless kids (see above) who go off to college and within months are convinced they live in a rapey, racist patriarchy; "Make America Great Again" is hate speech; and Black Lives Matter agitators are their brothers-in-arms against White Privilege. If my kids are like that at nineteen, I'll feel I've seriously failed them as a parent. Yet the general sentiment seems to be these are good, liberal kids who may have gotten a bit carried away.

I am tired of their lack of interest in any form of serious morality or self-betterment. These are decent, responsible people, many compassionate by temperament. Yet they seem two-dimensional, as if they believe that being a nice, well-socialized person who holds the correct political views is all there is, and there is nothing else to talk about. Isn't there, though?

I am tired of being bored and exasperated by everybody. I feel like I have read this book a thousand times, and there are no surprises in it. Down with Trump! Trans Lives Matter! Climate deniers are destroying the planet! No cake, we're gluten-free!

These are good people in a lot of ways. But there has got to be a better tribe.

That leads me to . . . drum roll . . . the Christian Right. It is no small feat, switching tribes. It feels stressful and weird to abandon your tribe for the Detested Other Side.

Since November 8, my husband and I have been taking the kids to church. (He is politically conservative with a religious bent, so no argument there.) I have come this close to buying a giant poster of the American flag for the living room. I may do it still.

Right now, I am struggling to accept the basic Christian doctrines (virgin birth, resurrection, second coming) because I feel the Christian tribe may be the right tribe for my family. We just finished watching a BBC miniseries about the birth of Jesus, which was so beautiful and moving compared to secular TV. My nine-year-old really enjoyed it. I want to prepare my kids to live according to some unchanging truth, not subject to every passing trend, and this felt like a start. But I worry that an inability to believe in the supernatural aspects of the faith will limit my ability to be a "real" Christian.

Last Sunday's sermon mentioned 1 Peter:18-19, "For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors." 

This may be obvious to you, but secular liberalism does seem empty in some way, despite all the things my educated, middle-class tribe has to be grateful for. If that's what's been handed down to me, I want more, especially for my precious kids. I'm trying.

I plan to respond to this reader privately, but she said I could share this letter as long as I protected her identity. What a courageous person she is. God bless her on her journey.
Thanks to Andrew for sending this!
Makow Comment - Liberals supported a woman who was selling US policy for gain off a private server; who is a Satanist and part of a pedophile ring, who destroyed Ukraine, Libya and Syria, who was leading the world to nuclear war, who appealed only to minorities, and they claim the moral high ground. Then, upon losing, they made up a childish excuse about Russian hacking when they were engaged in vote fraud both in the primaries and after. People are not stupid. The Democrats are bleeding support.  

First Comment by Dan:

Reminds me of my own awakening from a life of secular "humanist" programming, back in 2004.  You might ask readers to write in their own awakening experiences.

It doesn't happen overnight to anybody.  It's a long time coming. Two, five, as long as ten years in some cases.  It starts with feeling moments of sensing dissonance inside when signalling your enthusiasm for becoming a racial minority in the land of your ancestors; or for sodomy - even though you aren't a homosexual.

You must get past seeing it as a "liberal vs conservative dialectic" to break free of it.  You don't automatically label yourself a "conservative" when your 'secular humanist' programming finally breaks.  What should happen is simply thinking for yourself, through your own five senses, without going through the filter of Political Correctness.  Those who truly wake up from either programming transcend them both.

Hope you haven't missed the point of the paradigm shifts that changed the balance of power in 2016.  The number of people that have "woke" has reached critical mass.   The veil is lifted.

Scruples - the game of moral dillemas

What’s needed next is to purchase a firearm and learn how to shoot. This will greatly assist your transition away from the former tribe. The idea of gun ownership is an anathema to the liberal Left.

A said (December 26, 2016):

Thank you Henry. After reading the article from the California resident, I must say that I agree. As an anti-feminist, conservative living in Manhattan Beach, I feel like everyone my age 30s and below, are brainwashed by progressivism.

I'm tired of it and would like to leave but my rent is affordable

Martin said (December 26, 2016):

For a few years I lived around the corner from the actors currently playing Bill and Bernie, a couple block away from Barry and Michaels' place in Hyde Park/Chicago. I lived most of my adult life neck deep in the LibLabProg world. I agree wholeheartedly with Dan, "a veil has been lifted" and the anon. letter writer, her children will benefit for sure.

Currently, I wear a small Christian cross around my neck, not to evangelize, but to keep the vampires away - of which there are many on the left. I find upon seeing it it squares up people and removes the disagreeables. Makes my life easier.

I am a white heterosexual male without guilt about any of those things. I intend to return the vessel given to me - my body - in the best shape I can. Not disfigured, colored, or abused because it carried the gift of life. I respect all women, and after many years of Jezebels have a wonderful companion. I am blessed, know it and am grateful.

Your website is breath of fresh air to my morning readings. I can't say I agree with everything, but your world view is correct at its base. I appreciate your writings and posts and all your hard work. Thank you and stay the course.

The two-dimensional people to which the author refers can be summed up as cultural trend whores. Such people seem to expand as a proportion of the population with each passing year. They fall for anything and stand for nothing. The so-called right side of the political spectrum has them too. They're called neo-conservatives. The trends and sources of said trends are different, but the result is the same -- a segment of the population that forms the basis of its morality and general thought processes on what comes out of the channels it happens to favour on TV.

A New Year's request for people out there is to shut off the TV or at least curtail your consumption of it. There are lots of articles online about how television is addictive and how it can subtly brainwash people by putting your brain into an alpha wave state, rather than our normal beta wave state while awake.

Ask yourself, for instance, how we could go, as a society, from generally abhorring homosexual sex a mere 25 years ago to today's attitude of shrugging our shoulders and saying it's just an alternate form of love. It couldn't have been done without the chattering, glowing box that is at the centre of everyone's home. That's just one example.

Think about it. Act.

Tony B said (December 25, 2016):

That gal has made a great leap but unfortunately she is not out of the woods. Her mention of the "Christian right" shows the same kind of thinking she is attempting to escape, just from the opposite controlled mind set.

"Christian," real Christian, accepts no modifier. "Christian right" is a political term, not a Christian term. An ongoing agenda to politicize the Christian religion. Or to religionize the political "right" (neo con) agenda, a la John Hagee, Ted Cruz, et al. Her desire to hoist the flag in her living room shows the folly, the intended perversion, of Christianity. The U.S. flag is in no way a Christian symbol and the U.S. is in no way a Christian nation. The flag, in fact, uses symbolically occult stars.

Hopefully, in a short time, she will realize her enemy, whom she finds disgusting, is running both "sides."
