Video: Asian Americans Should #WalkAway - Why I'm EXHAUSTED With the Left


I'm liberal, but I no longer consider myself a liberal in today's sense. A lot of my frustration with the left is summarized by the following quote by economist Thomas Sowell: "It's the idea that you don't have to check a good sounding idea against what actually happens." I find that it's a sense of moral self-righteousness that has allowed liberals to not challenge their own ideas and remain complacent in their beliefs; it's pure intellectual laziness, and I'm tired of it. Sorry about the camera quality - I do want to make more videos potentially about current events and some personal stories, and if I decide to I'll definitely upload in higher quality. Thanks for tuning in.
 

 

Note: Two other Asian Americans have posted great videos which inspired me to share my own experience. Their names and channels are below.

Liberals See Truth as Subservient to Doctrine, Feelings


By Dennis Prager
TheDailySignal.com

Truth is not a left-wing value.

I first discovered this as a graduate student studying the Soviet Union and left-wing ideologies at the Russian Institute of Columbia University School of International Affairs. Everything I have learned since has confirmed this view.

Individuals on both the left and right lie. Individuals on both the left and right tell the truth. And liberalism, unlike leftism, does value truth. But the further left one goes, the more one enters the world of the lie.

Why does the left lie?

The liberal Left continue to push their radical agenda against American values. The good news is there is a solution. Find out more >>

There are two main reasons.

One is that leftists deem their goals more important than telling the truth. For example, every honest economist knows women do not earn 20 percent less money than men for the same work done for the same amount of hours under the same conditions. Yet leftists repeat the lie that women earn 78 cents for every dollar men earn.

Why any employers would hire men when they could hire women and get the same amount of work done at the same level of excellence for the same number of hours while saving 20 cents on the dollar is a question only God or the sphinx could answer.

So, when New York Times columnists write this nonsense, do they believe it? The answer is they don’t ask themselves, “Is it true?” They ask themselves, “Does the claim help promote the left-wing doctrine that women are oppressed?”

 Whatever serves that end is morally justified.

The second reason is leftism is rooted in feelings, not reason or truth. From Karl Marx to Bernie Sanders, left-wing preference for socialism over capitalism is entirely rooted in emotion. Only capitalism creates wealth. Socialism merely spends what capitalism creates.

Do leftists not know this? Even if they know it, the emotional pull of socialism prevails.

Do leftists believe there are more than two sexes? Of course not. That’s why they renamed “sex” “gender”—and then redefined “gender” to mean whatever one wants it to mean.

So then, on the left, truth is subservient to two higher values: doctrine and emotion.

This leads to the question of this column: Do those on the left believe their lies?

Do leftists believe global warming will destroy the world as we know it in 12 years, as recently suggested by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.? I don’t know. They seem to talk themselves into believing their hysterias. But they don’t act on them.

Here’s a simple proof that the left is lying about the imminent threat of global warming to civilization: Leftists don’t support nuclear power. It is simply not possible to believe fossil fuel emissions will destroy the world and, at the same time, oppose nuclear power. Nuclear power is clean and safe. Sweden, a model country for leftists, meets 40 percent of its energy needs with nuclear power.

If you were certain you were terminally ill yet decline a medicine that is guaranteed to cure you, the rest of us would have every reason to assume you didn’t really believe you were terminally ill.

Here’s more evidence the left doesn’t believe its global warming hysteria: How many leftists with beachfront property anywhere in the world have sold it? If leftists really believe global warming will cause the oceans to rise and soon inundate the world’s coastal areas, why would any leftist not sell his beachfront home while he could not only make all his money back but make a profit as well?

Another example of left-wing rhetoric leftists don’t act on: The left tells us that colleges are permeated by a “rape culture,” yet virtually all left-wing parents send their daughters to college. If you were to believe any place has a culture of rape, where 1 in 4 or 5 women is raped or otherwise sexually assaulted, would you send your 18-year-old daughter there? Of course not.

So how do any left-wing mothers or fathers send their daughters to college? The answer would seem to be they know it’s a lie—but that doesn’t matter, since the left views telling the truth as incomparably less significant than combating sexism, sexual assault, misogyny, toxic masculinity, and patriarchy.

One more example: “Walls don’t work.”

It is inconceivable that people who say this—especially those with walls around their home—believe it. Yet leftists say it with the same degree of ease Stalin labeled Trotsky a fascist, even though Trotsky and Lenin were the fathers of the Bolshevik Revolution.

The question is not whether truth is a left-wing value. The only question is whether leftists believe their lies. And, believe it or not, I still don’t know.

So, conduct the following tests and decide for yourself:

Ask anyone you know who says global warming will destroy most life on Earth in 12 years why they don’t advocate nuclear power. If they tell you it’s too dangerous, you know they are hysterics, not followers of science.

Ask anyone you know who believes the global warming threat is an existential one and owns beachfront property why they aren’t selling their beachfront property.

Ask anyone who believes colleges have rape culture why they sent (or are sending) their daughter to college.

It is possible to love truth and be liberal, conservative, libertarian, an atheist, a believer, a Jew, a Christian, a Muslim, or a Hindu. But you cannot be a leftist.

Elizabeth Warren Claimed NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE On State Bar of Texas Card


HOLY SH*T! THIS IS REAL! FRAUDSTER CAUGHT!  SIGNED AND DATED!  Can't wait to see how she's going to try and explain this one away.
 

 

By Christin Laila
TheGatewayPundit.com

 

Democrat elites take Elizabeth Warren out at the knees!  THIS WAS A BRUTAL HIT AGAINST A SERIAL LIAR!

The Washington Post reported this tonight!

Using an open records request during a general inquiry, The Washington Post obtained Elizabeth Warren’s registration card for the State Bar of Texas, revealing Warren identified as an “American Indian.”

Elizabeth Warren apologized for claiming to be Native American for nearly two decades as she struggles to put the scandal behind her as she prepares to announce her 2020 Presidential bid.

“I can’t go back,” Warren said in an interview with The Washington Post. “But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”

Warren apologized to the chief of the Cherokee Nation last week marking the first time she has ever apologized for falsely claiming Native American heritage.

Video: Heather MacDonald Warns US Colleges Are Breeding Hate



Scholar: US Colleges Are ‘Breeding Grounds For Civil War’
Students taught to hate Western civilization, each other

 

American colleges have become ‘breeding grounds for civil war,’ warns author and political commentator Heather Mac Donald.

Mac Donald, regarded by many as a leading conservative intellectual and researcher, asserts that students are being trained to “hate” and obsess upon identity politics by predatory cultural Marxists in faculty and administration.

“Come the 80s, students were given a license for ignorance,” Mac Donald told Fox News host Mark Levin. “They were taught the only thing they needed to know about a book were the race and gender of the author to know whether it was thoroughly dismissable, without being read, and they could go on to instead wallow in their own delusional oppression.”

“It has only gotten worse since then, and what we are doing is breeding the grounds for, I fear, civil war,” she warned. “Because students are being taught to hate — to hate the greatest works of Western civilization, and frankly, to hate each other.”

“From the moment a student steps on college campus today as a freshman — or as a ‘freshperson’ I should probably say — the bureaucracy is determined to drum into that student’s head, identity politics, which says he’s either a victim or an oppressor,” she continued.

Mac Donald contends that this extreme manipulation of young minds is creating hordes of damaged collectivists who carry a “chip on their shoulders,” preventing them from “seizing the magnificent opportunities” and vast knowledge made available to them by modern society and technology.

“They carry this chip, this delusional victimology, into the world at large, and they are going around blaming American institutions of endemic racism and sexism when that no longer is true,” Mac Donald said.

Mac Donald’s comments echo sentiments she expressed in a recent article in the American Mind.

“The core sickness of the academy is not relativism but hatred,” Mac Donald wrote. “Students are taught to hate the greatest works of Western civilization, and to hate each other, based on the tribal trivialities of gonads and melanin.”

Mac Donald, a Fellow of the Manhattan Institute, made waves in 2016 with her bombshell PragerU presentation “Are the Police Racist?” analyzing police shootings and challenging the Black Lives Matter narrative.

Candace Owens - Blexit: In My Own Words


 

By Candace Owens
Breitbart.com

When I uploaded my first video onto YouTube one year ago, I entitled it “Mom, Dad, I’m a Conservative.”

It was a two-minute satirical stab at the social exiling that many Americans face when they announce their conservatism to friends and family.

Soon thereafter I would discover that for black Americans, the punishment that awaits is far worse than any social exile: it is a full-court social lynching.

Search the name of any prominent black conservative and peruse the words written by liberal journalists:

Dr. Ben Carson is a “porch monkey”

Larry Elder is but an “Uncle Tom”

Kanye West is “in the sunken place”

Clarence Thomas is “a womanizer”

I have been branded a self-hating black, Nazi-sympathizer and rather astonishingly — a white supremacist.

The underlying sentiments are clear; black people are meant to think and act within the confines of what white liberals deem acceptable.

But while in the past the threat of slander has worked to lag the spreading of black conservatism, over this last year, I have observed something of the opposite effect.

In fact, what many have misdiagnosed as political tension between two ideologically disparate groups is actually something far greater, far more deep-rooted, and much more likely to alter the trajectory of this country as we know it.

Across America, black people are beginning to question political orthodoxy. We have been quietly building an ecosystem of free thinkers and at long last, the intellectual dam is breaking.

This unique moment will come to be known as BLEXIT: the black exit from the Democrat party.

Saul Alinsky: Democrats Fail to Create ‘Constructive Alternative’


The left has employed most of the strategies recommended by community agitator Saul Alinsky in his influential 1971 book, Rules for Radicals. Everything from making the threat “more terrifying than the thing itself” to using ridicule as “man’s most potent weapon,” the left has won multiple battles and made many gains in the culture war over the years by channeling Alinsky’s spirit for wisdom on effective political tactics.

But, perhaps blinded by their disdain and rage over President Donald Trump, progressives have failed to adopt one important Alinsky rule since 2016: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” He further writes as part of Rule 12:

“Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.)”

Democrats personify much of what Alinsky warns about. The party of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) don’t have solutions to problems because it appears they are part of the problem.

While obstruction without an alternative may record short-term political gains and adulation from certain networks, it rarely pleases a chunk of the electorate. This could spell doom for the donkeys.

 

No Plan

During the 2008 election, when the entire country seemed to be frustrated by then-President George W. Bush and the Republicans, the Democratic brass submitted a series of policy prescriptions. The Democratic nominee and future president campaigned on closing down Guantanamo Bay, ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and tackling the national debt. Former President Barack Obama failed to achieve much of what he pledged – even exacerbating these issues – but they were serious proposals.

What can you say about the Democrats of today? To espouse that the Democrats and the overall left do not have a platform heading into the 2018 midterm elections and 2020 presidential contest would be an understatement.

Because the Democrats have been ensconced in porn stars, neo-McCarthyism, fake news, sound bytes, and inciting mobs, the party has failed to materialize policy positions. And, no, promising free stuff does not count as a viable and genuine proposal.

The party is missing a myriad of crucial elements to endear themselves to voters, which could explain why the so-called blue wave might be nothing more than a ripple in the shallow end of a pool.

Ostensibly, the only messages that the Democrats are sending to the American people are “We hate Trump!” and “If you don’t vote for us, then we’re going to hoot, holler, and hum until we get our way!”

 

Young Blood

Say what you will about the Republican Party, but when they were eviscerated in 2008, Reince Priebus and his Republican National Committee (RNC) staff conducted an internal autopsy. The soon-to-be White House Chief of Staff examined what went wrong, why voters shunned the GOP, and how the elephants could stampede their way through the nation once again. It worked as the GOP gradually regained power nationwide from 2010 to 2016.

You can debate if the Republicans have wasted their power, but they were victorious. And, in the world of politics, control is the only thing that matters, not effective policy change.

Now, contrast this with the Democrats.

Has the Democratic National Committee (DNC) performed a similar audit? The only approaches that Tom Perez has taken is denial. Like the woman who will never be president, Hillary Clinton, much of the party still cannot concede that they lost the 2016 election, blaming everything on Macedonians, Pokémon Go, and women terrified of their husbands.

Meanwhile, the party is experiencing a sea of change. The Chuck Schumers and the Nancy Pelosis are on their way out, and the young blood, seemingly of the socialist variety a la Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is taking over. If this is the makeup of the Democratic Party, then the GOP is safe – for now. In the coming years, when even more Americans wear Che Guevara t-shirts and hang portraits of Karl Marx on their living room walls, that blue wave might transform into a tsunami. And, like a tsunami, socialism will destroy everything in its path.

 

Mastering Saul Alinsky

Suffice it to say, the left has mastered most of Saul Alinsky’s teachings. In the same way Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) avidly reads Antifa: The Antifascist Handbook, the progressive wings of the Democratic Party have made Rules for Radicals integral to The Resistance. Unfortunately for them, it seems they have ripped out Rule 12 and thrown it in the trash can, instead relying on hyperbole, hysteria, and hypocrisy – some say ignorance, too – to win back the branches of government. Alinsky would be displeased, and you never anger the spirit of Alinsky.

Video: #WalkAway Founder: Democrats Are Jumping Ship Over Kavanaugh Smear


Brandon Straka, the openly gay former Democrat behind the recent movement to #Walkaway from liberalism says he has seen an uptick in the number of people who say they’re ‘walking away’ from the Democratic party.

He says hundreds of people have reached out to him since the Justice Brett Kavanaugh battle started, and he began receiving more video testimonials and messages from people who say they will now vote Republican because of the smear campaign launched against Kavanaugh.
