No Reconciliation

In 2002 pundit Charles Krauthammer said that to understand modern American politics, you had to understand two things: The Right thinks the Left is stupid. The Left thinks the Right is EVIL.

Exhibit A, this answer to the Quora question: What would Jesus say to the American religious establishment who supported Trump?

.Jay Bazzinotti The most important Law is to love God. The 2nd is love thy neighbor as thyself.

You realize, of course, that it is blasphemy to put words in the mouth of God. All you need do is look at his words as they exist today

“When I was hungry, you gave me nothing to eat; when I was thirsty, you gave me nothing to drink. When I was sick or in prison, you did not comfort or visit me; when I was a stranger in your land, you did not welcome me.”

And as a result, he sent the Republicans to Hell to burn in the unquenchable fire. It’s actually pretty clear in Matthew 25. Of course, Republicans will tell you they donate more than anyone else, more to Joel Osteen so he can live in a castle and own multiple private aircraft. But as Jesus said of the poor woman who gave 2 cents to the collection plate: “She’s given more than all of these [Republicans] because she gave all that she had while they gave of their excess.”

The funny thing is, the Republicans KNOW they are doing wrong – they simply don’t care. As long as they get theirs, they do not care who else suffers or how they got it. Abraham Lincoln, a Republican of the past, actually predicted and condemned the Republicans of the present. He said, “The one is the common right of humanity and the other the divine right of kings. It is the same principle in whatever shape it develops itself. It is the same spirit that says, ‘You work and toil and earn bread, and I’ll eat it.”

The Republicans are happy to condemn people different from them and to profit from their labor. It’s one of the reasons why the Democratic states have perpetually had to pay for the shortfall in taxes of the welfare-taking Republican states.

I cannot put words in Jesus’ mouth. But I can look at what he said about Republican in the Gospels. And yes, I know I am a sinner but at least I recognize and it try to be a better person. The only thing the Republicans try to improve are their methods for ignoring that their own people like Goslar and Gaetz and Cruz and the others do. They no longer see the difference between moral and immoral, ethical and unethical, right and wrong. There are no limits for them as long as they get what they want no matter who is hurt.

This brings us, once again, to the words of former Leftist David Horowitz, who explains this moral superiority with crystal clarity:

“Progressives are focused on the future, and what’s the chief characteristic of the future? It’s imaginary! The future they are focused on never existed in human history, and as conservatives we understand it can never exist. It’s an impossible dream and a very, very destructive one, as we know from the history of Progressive movements in the 20th Century which killed a hundred million people in peacetime.

“It is, as I’ve said in many places, a crypto-religion. “The world is a Fallen place, and we’re gonna save it.”

“This is what makes them so dangerous. They see themselves as Savior. A decent – I would say “authentic” religion says that the world is a really screwed up place and human beings are incapable of unscrewing it.

“People who believe that Redemption will take place in this life, and they’re going to be part of it, that’s the Hitlers, that’s the Lenins, that’s the Maos. And unfortunately it’s the ideology, moderated of course, but the ideology – moderated for the American framework – of the Democratic Party and the Progressive Left: ‘If we have the power, we can do it.’

“So if you believe that social institutions can change things by getting enough power, then when you look at your opponents, who are the people who are not going along with the program? You see yourself as the army of the Saints. Who are they? They are, YOU are the party of Satan!

“If you want to understand a so-called liberal, just think of a hellfire and damnation preacher and his mentality. That’s what it is. That’s why they’re rude, they’re always interrupting, that’s why it doesn’t bother them in the least that there are no conservatives on their faculty. Because conservatives are evil, they’re spreading ideas that are evil, that are keeping people from enjoying this paradise on Earth that they’re going to bring about.”

We all just received a sermon from Archbishop Bazzenotti.

7 thoughts on “No Reconciliation

  1. The funny thing is that leftists condemn Republicans as uncharitable because they won’t consent to having the government forcibly take from other people to give to the poor.

    I don’t recall Jesus ever saying anything like “take your neighbor’s money and give it to the poor.” Theological scholar Bazzinotti is going to have to point that scripture out to me ’cause I can’t find it.

    What I remember is Jesus telling us to give OUR OWN “time, talents and treasures” in support of the less fortunate, which is what Republicans are doing when they voluntarily donate to charity.

    Republicans give their own money voluntarily while Democrats have to be forced to do so under threat of government violence (or enticed to do so through tax breaks and other incentives) and somehow this is indicative of the uncharitable nature of Republicans….Leftist “logic”.

  2. There is no basis upon which a reconciliation can rest. Neither faction will accept the values or priorities of the other, and so the choices are stark:

    * They can pursue the status quo to continue to try to foist their V&P upon each other, justifying the coercion by methods afforded through various political, social and economic institutions.

    * They can skip the political process figleaf, and just get on with foisting their V&P upon each other through ̶m̶o̶s̶t̶l̶y̶ ̶p̶e̶a̶c̶e̶f̶u̶l̶ ̶p̶r̶o̶t̶e̶s̶t̶ naked aggression, violence, intimidation, with or without political cover.

    OR

    * They can resolve to leave each other the hell alone to pursue their own best vision of life, liberty and happiness.

    1. Geek, the latter simply cannot happen. The Left, like the economic system they revere, cannot exist if the Right still exists.

      If the opportunity to leave the Left exists, that is an existential threat to them.

      The fact that their “values and priorities” always end in disaster and death – always – is merely a Right-wing talking point. They’ll get it right when the wreckers and schemers are all gone!

  3. The foot soldiers of the Right think the Left is stupid. And the footsoldiers of the Left have been conditioned for DECADES to view the Right as EVIL. But the leaders from
    BOTH FACTIONS aren’t stupid….and they ARE evil. The ugly reality is that there is only ONE party in America that merely has two faces. I call it the Janus party. It has two factions….the insane left who never let facts and reality interfere with their agenda and the cowardly greedy right who roll over and stick their ass up to be pegged by the left….just so long as the money keeps rolling in. But BOTH sides hate America and hate Americans.

  4. I am in academia and the whole idea of the right is not only evil but also stupid. You see the left goes for all these degrees while the right barely goes to college and they gets job in the evil capitalistic world. So of course they have to be stupid and evil. Those people who take those jobs in sanitation, maintaining infrastructure, plumbing and the like must be stupid else they would have jobs like mine in academia. That has become the highest level of achievement in their minds.

  5. Make no mistake, leftists ARE evil.

    Leftists think everyone who disagrees with them should die in a fire. No, that is not an exaggeration, not a figure of speech. Don’t think so?

    Leftist rioters in the summer of 2020 tried to set fire to buildings with people trapped inside of them. In at least one case, they succeeded, and then tried to prevent first responders from getting there to put it out.

    These very same people were defended by leftists in media and politics, up to an including the President, the Vice President and the Speaker of the House.

    Leftists in the media just in the last few days have tried to demonize Kyle Rittenhouse, his lawyers, his judge, and tried to stalk, doxx and intimidate the members of the jury. Other leftists have also sent death threats to all of the above. His crime: Defending himself from being literally beaten to death by a mob of violent leftists. The crime of the others involved? Trying to make the rule of law prevail, rather than the demands of violent leftists, where the interests of those violent leftists were concerned.

    So no, they don’t want “reasoned discourse and rational debate.” They don’t even want your views defeated. THEY WANT YOU DEAD, and they want you dead in the most horrible and painful way possible, to serve as a warning to others.
