The Moral and Intellectual Cowardice of Moderates and Liberals

 In reference to an article posted in PoliticsNY titled-  

At Witts End: Citizen bounty hunters for parking infractions will sew discord

Written by Stephen Witt and posted October 14, 2022

Oh, Stephen, Stephen, to be at your Witt's end you would need to be more than a simple mid-wit which after sampling you columns, mid-wit may be a very generous compliment indeed.

First of all, to call Lincoln Restler an epic smooth brain moron would be grossly unfair and insulting to smooth brained morons everywhere. But surprisingly, to anyone who has the stomach to endure Restler's mind dwarfing verbal diarrhea and stoically endure the cacophony of brain cells screaming in agony as they die, they would be surprised to learn there are many more people more unspeakably vapid and more psychologically demented than Restler- his voters and the hybrid mutations of Transportation Alternatives.

Overall, this article simply highlights the fatuous posturing of moral superiority, of  taking the high road of "being above the fray" in pretending to take no sides all the while being sympathetic to the more radical leftist which illustrates why the moderate and liberal (1960's-70's mainstream variant) has failed. These sorts of weasels want to be seen as the good guys, the non-partisan, as if it would imbue them with some kind of magical intellectual and moral superiority. But in reality, they're sophists of the lowest order, desperate to be liked by both sides in a debate. Never once will a moderate or liberal put his foot down and say "this is right and that is wrong". Instead, this species of worm will answer the question of what do you think? with an "I think what you think but the other guy sorta has a point too". The last part of the other guy sorta has a point too is conditional on if the liberal or moderate thinks no one will so much as look at them with even a small trace of consternation for saying it. 

"In American politics we seem to be moving further to the extremes. Trying to reach the center and compromise is all too often shunned. It’s seen as somehow selling out. In truth, American politics at its best has always been about consensus building to make for the art of the possible."

That is, if the art of the possible is giving leftists only most of what they want for now and the rest of it later as the moderates and liberals that infest this city have proven wont to do over many years. If Rome wasn't built in a day, then this SDA wet dream of a mess made in this city took many years to get to- all with nice, well meaning, liberals and moderates finding this consensus and middle ground which always seemed to lurch slightly left. More important than asking what is possible is asking is this necessary or needed, should we do this and what are the consequences for doing so. And this is the reason why liberalism and moderation has failed in modern politics as they never ask those questions and offer nothing but banal platitudes that makes them useless at best. But when they either go along with the more radical leftist policies or refuse to oppose them with more than tepid objections, they become radical enablers and are worse than useless. Because of this, these are the people who are the most responsible for the asinine progressive leftist policies destroying New York offering only their incessant whining about the growing left-right political divide and all because they'd be mortified to really oppose or stop the Democratic Socialists of America or other leftists lest they be called racists or Trump supporters. In this, liberals and moderates sell out all the time.

"But their [the progressive bike lobby] often heavy-handedness on issues and mob-like tactics on social media can be viewed as a microcosm of what is wrong with American politics today. Too often we get activists and elected leadership from both the right and the left thinking it’s all their way or the highway. The palette is all black and white with no colors in the middle."

They will inevitably damn the right with faint praise and make the mildest criticism against the left for which they will do so either with conditional weasel words or find a flimsy excuse for the damage the left has caused. But still trying to be that "I'm above it all" galaxy brain, Olympian cool poser with a pox on both your houses sneer which is their epic failure at trying to look intelligent and showing some backbone. Sometimes, even many times, there is a real good and bad/right and wrong/smart or stupid idea when we must have the courage to take that black and white response and get some idiot upset. This is where real courage, common sense and intelligence come in and a position in which liberals and moderates are never found.

"While critical, this column is not a put down per se of the progressive bike lobby. They have accomplished many good things for the city. Protected bike lanes and other changes that make streets more equitably utilized are generally very positive improvements."

Then too, the moderate or liberal when ever so gently criticizing the more radical left will offer some apology for that criticism or the sheepish "I kind of agree with the leftist but personally I'm not that radical and wouldn't go with that myself" all the while doing nothing to stop it. For no matter how "not that radical" the liberal and moderate may be, they never find the courage to actually oppose it with more than oleaginous milquetoast words.

In the end this is because, to paraphrase Wittaker Chambers that the liberal thinks the communist is really a rather noble fellow who deserves special consideration in a harsh and reactionary world. Then as the slimy poltroons pretending not to be the co-conspirator of the communists, moderates and liberals are worse than the most woke or SJW twats and so deserve the harshest condemnation and censure.

In regards to the Bike Karen bounty bill that greasy asshole Restler introduced, it died a well deserved death in the city council. Even that collection of leftist dementrons in the city council still had enough functioning cells in those neural junkyards that serve as their head filler to dimly realize just how idiotic that bill was. An accident in our favor for once.

We're all Americans Except When We're Not.

Our Glorious Managerial Overlords never tire of telling us that from whatever corner of the world one comes from and as soon as they step off the plane or boat or what have you, they are just as American as any person of European Christian descent whose ancestry goes back to the colonial era. Or any similar whose ancestors immigrated and assimilated since. In fact, to disagree with a white progressive liberal on this is blasphemy and punishable as a hate crime. 

And as such the newcomer, whatever his race or religion must be accorded all the respect and hailed as a fellow American especially if he steadfastly refuses to assimilate to the local American culture as soon as his foot touches US soil. The newcomers, as the progressive liberal religion permits, is only an honest-to-goodness, mom, Chevrolet and apple pie American when it's convenient for them and may retain their own ethnicity when it's advantageous. And thus, they demand respect as both at the same time. A cynic would accuse such newcomers of gaming the system to their advantage while thoroughly fucking over their "fellow Americans" and openly laughing at us as they do so. 

But this isn't the fault of the newcomers but the fault of the native born Americans who allow themselves to be taken advantage of. The Joe and Jane Normies who believed all the pretty lies of liberals and allowed themselves to be led around by the nose by SJW and woke oikophobic mutants. The peasants who vote Democrat because "dere for da woikin' guy". Then too, out of fond memories of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, our very own Dark Lord, Darth Decrepit, and stupid enough to believe FDR was their friend. Keep voting Democrat and some day, the Democrats will come back to them but in the mean time, they'll cry and complain about it in the comments section on such local sites as Queenscrap, under anonymous, of course. But come election time, they will crawl off on their bellies and vote back in the same politicians they were bitching about the day before because he's really a great guy and everyone else is an idiot for voting for their corrupt, douchebag politician. It's not their fault, it's the other guy! The punchline is that nobody can ever figure out why things keep getting worse or in the best case, never change. Welcome to Hotel Queens.

Here is a cute little article from Gotham Gazette that illustrates this "I demand to be accepted and respected as an American and I'm still my own ethnicity, demand special privileges and must be respected even more for that" mentality:

Party Primaries in Brooklyn Race for New City Council 'Asian Opportunity District' Come Down to the Wire, June 22, 2023 by Samar Khurshid and Julia Goldberg

So we're all good Americans except when we're not and we must only be represented by our own people as the newcomers, who have formed their own exclusive ethnic colonies and cannot be represented anyone else. Gerrymandering is needed to assure the political integrity of the colony and that the colonists need not have to endure an outsider elected doling out the largess but one of their own to properly loot the public treasury. Not to dunk only on the Asians here, and again, I'm not dunking on any immigrants for playing by our rules, but all the other ethnic colonies are doing it so why not this group as well? If we the people are stupid enough to let them do it, then we deserve to be looted and even worse.

 Of course, for white Americans of the sort who were born and raised here, we must accept having elected politicians of any other race or ethnicity rule over them and like it as second class citizens in their own country. If we don't respect ourselves enough to reject this, silence and send the liberal and other leftist mutants back to the fringes of society where they belong, then we deserve nothing but contempt from the immigrants. Freedom of association and freedom of opinions or choice are strictly forbidden by the woke puritans and we obey and listen to their insipid prattle and lies. This isn't simply hypocrisy, as blatant as it is, but grotesque colonialism and imperialism on such a level that doublethink alone cannot assimilate it, but a full frontal lobotomy followed by enough electroshock treatments to fry whatever neurons one has left is needed.

If we are all Americans, then we are all in playing for the team without hyphens, leaving the old country behind, or not make demands to all to bow to our original ethnicity, accommodate our unique ethnic needs or demands to be only represented by our own race or ethnicity. This is not a betrayal of the old country but acceptance of the new country as befitting a worthy adopted son or daughter. Still, the newcomers will have to work to earn the respect and acceptance of the natives, but anything one works hard for is something one truly wants and will cherish when it is achieved. Something they will proudly pass on to their descendants. For those who can accept this, I would welcome you.
