The death of the Communist dictator Fidel Castro has revealed to us the alt-Left. The mainstream media have had a field day with the alt-Right, but just who are the alt-Left? Let me explain.
The alt-Left are people like the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who felt ‘deep sorrow’ on learning of the death of Communist monster Fidel Castro. Castro was according to Trudeau “a legendary revolutionary and orator who made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.” The other comrade is Jeremy Corbyn, who called Castro “an internationalist and a champion of social justice. ”
This always reminds me of ‘life-long communist’ Professor Eric Hobsbawm and his classic Desert Island Discs interview. Do please listen should you ever forget what you are up against.
In it the great professor is depressed that communism failed in the USSR. At around 13 minutes in he talks about this profound commitment to communism. The interviewer then points out the inhumanity of communism in Soviet Russia including the ‘mass murder.’ Hobsbawm replies, we did not know at the time and ‘’in so far as people told us we didn’t believe them, or did not want to believe them.”
Hobsbawm is pushed further and asked, if there was a chance of communist utopia, was it worth any kind of sacrifice? He replies ‘yes I think so,’ The millions of lives? Yes he says, ‘that is how we felt about WWII wasn’t it?’ But there is a distinction, he is told, between killing your own and a war? Hobsbawm replies, “we did not know that, dead is dead.” And for the millions killed under communism, they certainly are.
So one must understand that the alt-Left seek power. They are not after democracy or reasonable debate: they seek power and control. If they have to usurp democratic functions to do this, they will.
This is why we have a legal challenge to Brexit. The wealthy, global elite did not like the answer given to them by the people in a democratic referendum so they seek to change it. This can be done by a legal challenge, or a general war of attrition from other alt-Lefters such as Tony Blair and anyone part of the Liberal Democrats. Hint – if the party goes by the term democrat they are usually anything but.
Which brings us nicely to the Democrats in the US. They did not like the result of their recently bitterly and hard fought election so they seek to overthrow it and ‘delegitimise’ president-elect Donald Trump. Their followers protest, often violently, and are recorded saying ‘there will be casualties’ on all sides.
They Democrats seek recounts (under cover of the Green Party) in states such a Michigan that have been sunk economically under both local Democrat rule, and Federal Democrat rule by President Obama. You know the failed cities of Detroit and Flint? All Democrat.
The tools the alt-Left use to obtain power are as follows. First, they limit free speech under the regime of political correctness, trigger warnings, safe spaces and then microaggressions. Cleverly however, they also essentially force the public to fund speech the public would not ordinarily agree with – such as the licence fee for Alt-Left institutions such as the BBC and left-wing academia.
They hate the Christian religion – so will use all sorts of tricks to shut that down and force it out of the public sphere. They come after the bakers, and the photographers- all two of them who do not want to take part in a gay wedding. They ban Christians from adopting while shutting down Christian adopting agencies that have been around for decades. You get the picture.
And finally the alt-Left are big into the culture of death. Perhaps it is because they have such a dim view of mankind this lot push radically liberal abortion and euthanasia laws all over the West. The Dutch are pioneers when it comes to knocking off the old and infirm, not to mention those who are mentally unwell.
And the alt-Left believe abortion on demand up to the point birth should be a human right. In fact Hillary Clinton’s idea of having a limit on abortion is to have a law against infanticide. Mind you, the philosopher Peter Singer famously thinks even this is too oppressive in certain circumstances. Truly, the alt-Left have it in for the babies which tells you all you need to know.
So there we have it. The alt-Left – haters of freedom, lovers of death. And they will do anything to get their way.
