There are two excellent pieces from the National Review laying out the tyrannical nature of the current crop of Leftists who are particularly active in the United States.
For the avoidance of doubt, when I use the term Leftists I am not referring to those loyal Labour supporters who have voted that way in the belief that Labour stood up for the working man (whether the party still protects the interests of the working man is up for debate).
I am not referring to the few remaining classic liberals out there. I am referring to this new breed of Leftists, those who are obsessed with identity politics and Marxist economics, and who seek to destroy all differences between the sexes.
These Leftists are the type of people who unleash a torrent of abuse against a high school student for her choice of prom dress, as explained by David French.
They are a powerful group, and although they represent only a minority view they have the ear of the media, ever on the lookout for more and more divisive agendas to generate headlines.
As Dennis Prager explains here, fear of the Left is the most powerful force in America today. Corporations seem unable to stand up to Leftists, bullying and cowardly politicians crumble at the first shout of ‘hate speech’ even though all the hate seems to come from these ultra-Leftists as demonstrated by out-and-out violence on the streets of Paris on May 1.
The internet bullying, the ideological terrorism directed against anyone who objects to the radical transgender agenda, the targeting of companies who advertise in mainstream newspapers, the shouting down of speakers at the academy and the violence perpetrated by baseball-bat wielding, mask-wearing ‘Antifa’ fanatics, this is all part of the same movement: Leftism.
It must be challenged and it must be stopped. French again: ‘America’s most prominent culture-makers obsess over identity. They elevate prom dress choices to matters of national debate. And that’s why people who still possess a sense of reason, proportion, and manners (on both sides of the political aisle) need to push back. Reason can’t cede the public square to rage.’
