One of the sweetest, most satisfying feelings is seeing your enemies turn on and then devour one another.

It seems there are endless examples of this in social and political discourse nowadays, which I attribute largely to leftist cultural dominance. When an ideology defines itself based on sniffing out supposed injustice, then its adherents' only source of power is based on their status as victims, and so any expression of the dominance instinct within that ideology can only be cannibalistic in nature, i.e. proving that you are more oppressed then others by demonstrating that you are oppressed within your own group.

The Hollywood sex abuse scandal is a good and obvious example, with (((them))) saying that society hates and abuses women, and then of course (((they))) turn out to be some of the biggest abusers of women.

Then there are the sheer number of contradictions in leftist logic leading to infighting-meltdowns. The example below plays out something like "Gender is a social construct, trans women can therefore be women, but only someone who's grown up a woman can understand the female experience, therefore trans women cannot be women."

World-class misandrist Germaine Greer claims trans women are not real women, gets attacked by trans rights activists.


Keep the examples comin', MJ is hangry

I think Samseau said it before, though I may be wrong, that leftism is a disease. It really is.

It's like a virus that doesn't stop until everything in it's path has been destroyed. It's all always hungry. It's always looking to devour its host.

When I was growing up, I vividly remember how American individualism and exceptionalism was pushed. It was all about overcoming the odds. The prevailing belief was that yes, you would fail from time to time.

But at the same time, it was also understood that the great thing about Americans was that we kept getting up again. We did not stop. If you fell, you pulled yourself back up.

You might not be the first man to step on Mars or become President one day, but every single person here in God's country had every ample opportunity to make it to the middle class. While you might not win every basketball tournament or high school football game, those losses provided you a great opportunity for growth to do better next time.

In short, Americans prided ourselves on overcoming the odds.

Today, with the disease that is leftism having a strangle hold over most of our key institutions, Americans pride themselves on being a victim.

You want examples of the left eating itself? I'm sure this thread will provide plenty of entertaining material.

How about Symone Sanders, the former press secretary for the failed Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, when she said that ""In my opinion, we don't need white people leading the Democratic Party right now". No pink pussy hats for white women, I guess they're too low on the victim hierarchy chart.

That's still a pretty funny story of the left eating itself though.

How about Rose McGowan getting banned from Twitter for being among the first to call out Harvey Weinstein? Didn't she know that nobody is a bigger victim than the Jews?

That's a pretty funny story of the left eating itself.

How about Bruce Jenner getting hailed as some kind of hero for getting surgery and wearing women's clothing getting bashed when it came out that he supported Trump? Doesn't Bruce know that despite transsexuals being very high on the victim hierarchy chart, supporting "Literally Hitler" will cause your special and precious snowflake status to melt away?

That's a pretty funny story of the left eating itself.

Ok Ok, but these are just "shaking your head" stories of the left eating itself. Stupid people do stupid shit, yeah I get it man, I get it.

You want some real examples that actually matter in the real world of the left eating itself?

The census report which you can download in a Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet that the Orange County Register used as its source: https://www.census.gov/data/tables/...raphic-mobility/state-to-state-migration.html

Last year (in 2016), California had 142,932 more residents exit to live in other states than arrive, according to an analysis of a new report from the U.S. Census Bureau, released Wednesday, Nov. 15. This “domestic net outmigration” was the second-largest outflow in the nation behind New York and just ahead of Illinois and New Jersey. And it was up 11 percent (13,699 net departures) vs. 2015.

Lets recap that list of states with the highest exodus for the year 2016:

1. New York
2. California
3. Illionois
4. New Jersey

What government do these states have? Leftist democrat.

And perhaps most intriguingly, why are people leaving these states?

According to The Tax Foundation, there's a link between taxes and and migration.

Source: https://taxfoundation.org/where-did-americans-move-2016

There is a relationship between taxes and migration. Individuals move for a variety of factors. Climate, job opportunities, family, among others, impact the decision to relocate. Taxes can influence the decision too.

Tax rates and structure affect a state’s economy; states with less burdensome tax structures and lower rates tend to have better economic growth. Increased job opportunities can result from the better economic growth.

So there's a link between migration and taxes. What about the policies that these 4 states enact?

In general, the states that people are fleeing from are high taxed liberal states.

How are these people going to vote when they leave to other parts of the USA? While that data is hard to find, Pew Research gives us a little idea:

Source: http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tan...ow-age-affects-attitudes-and-voting-behavior/

On an individual level, of course, many people’s political views evolve over the course of their lives. But academic research indicates not only that generations have distinct political identities, but that most people’s basic outlooks and orientations are set fairly early on in life. As one famous longitudinal study of Bennington College women put it, “through late childhood and early adolescence, attitudes are relatively malleable…with the potential for dramatic change possible in late adolescence or early adulthood. But greater stability sets in at some early point, and attitudes tend to be increasingly persistent as people age.”

According to Pew Research, it doesn't seem promising that voting patterns will change when people move from blue states to red states.

Furthermore, you might ask, just where might these people fleeing from New York California, Illinois and New Jersey be moving to? The US Census shows a very clear picture:

Source: https://www.census.gov/newsroom/press-releases/2017/estimates-idaho.html

Following Idaho for the largest percentage increases in population were: Nevada (2.0 percent), Utah (1.9 percent), Washington (1.7 percent), and Florida along with Arizona (1.6 percent).

Let's recap that list of states with the highest percentage increases in population from July 1, 2016 - July 1, 2017:

1. Nevada
2. Utah
3. Washington
4. Florida
5. Arizona

What governments do all of these states have, with the exception of Washington? Conservative republican states.

What policies do these governments enact, with the exception of Washington? Once again, refer to these two charts that I just showed:

SBTCI-01.png

Now, taxes and the left eating itself? Where am I going with all of this? When you dig a little bit deeper into some of the tax policies of these liberal utopias, you get a little better picture. In one example, according to one Californian democratic politician, tax free tampons are a matter of social justice:

Source: http://reason.com/blog/2016/01/27/tax-free-tampons

"Effectively we are being taxed for being born as women," she said. "AB 1561 is about social justice [and] an opportunity to end an outdated tax that uniquely targets women for a function of their body, a function we don't control and can’t ignore every month of our adult life."

But of course the liberal utopia that is California couldn't just let that tax revenue go down the drain. So, they figured out a solution:

Source: http://time.com/money/4701623/california-tampon-tax/

Tampons and other feminine hygiene products are considered “luxury” items by a majority of states, and so are subject to sales taxes. As a result, women who menstruate pay millions each year in taxes that don’t apply to men—and many are demanding reform.

Lawmakers in California say they’ve found a unique solution: getting rid the tax on tampons and making up the budget shortfall by raising a tax on hard alcohol.

“Liquor is a choice and a luxury, and human biology is not,” California State Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia said in a statement last week. “There is no happy hour for menstruation. Our tax code needs to reflect the fact that it’s not ok to tax women for being born women.”

And who are the main consumers of hard alcohol, you might ask? Well according to one study by the US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health, they found that while more studies were needed to form a good conclusion:

Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15770116

METHODS:
Drinkers were recruited from randomly selected alcohol outlets in South Los Angeles. Respondents were assessed on sociodemographic characteristics, alcohol use history, drinking patterns, and drinking context among other items in a face-to-face interview with research staff.

RESULTS:
Three hundred twenty-nine drinkers were interviewed, of whom 297 reported drinking MLB, RB, or HL brands of alcohol most often in the past 90 days. This subsample was 88% African-American, 72% male, and 35% unemployed.

So essentially, the left is saying that unemployed African American males are to be taxed more so that females can be taxed less? All in the name of social justice? This is a real world example of the left eating itself. Is this funny anymore?

Conclusion:

Now finding data on what percentage liberals are moving from blue states to red states and what percentage conservatives moving from blue states to red states is hard to find.

However, for a simple minded man like myself, I rationalize that there must be a sizable amount of liberals moving from blue states to red states for the simple fact that so many people are moving from blue states to red states in the first place.

If I'm to believe Pew Research's Academic studies that found that voting patterns are less likely to change the older that people get, I then rationalize that the people who are migrating from blue states to red states are going to bring their voting patterns with them and in some cases vote for the same politicians that made them leave their home state in the first place.

And what is making leftists leave their liberal utopias? If I'm to believe the Tax Foundation that there is indeed a link between taxes and migration, then my simple mind reasons that a part of why Americans are fleeing blue states to red states is because of the tax environment.

Now I'm certainly no tax expert and I probably wouldn't understand 75% of the mumbo jumbo that's written in those tax laws anyways.

However when I see that out of control "social justice" tax laws, like ones which dictate that unemployed African American males in California indirectly pay more taxes because they are lower on the victim hierarchy chart then females, which then helps result in an exodus from liberal states to conservative states where the migrants from liberal states will most likely retain their voting patterns when they arrive in the conservative states............

Well, suddenly, the left eating itself isn't so funny anymore.

Excellent post. Parallels with the 'economic migrants' / 'refugees' fleeing shithole countries for the West and then recreating said conditions that made them shithole countries in the first place.
 
The liberals are mostly useful idiots. They don't know that most of the schemes are:

+ on a slippery slope in terms of feminism - that is why Germaine Greer is attacked, because her feminism ended in the 70s while the crazies push on
+ the ones pushing all the social justice causes are utterly separated from the morons at the bottom who actually believe in that bullshit - all policies have either the opposite reaction to what the left thinks or they are just stepping stones
+ for example: feminists say that it is all about equality, while the plans are simply to abolish family, ostracize all men and boys, empower women and finally start communal living where women won't even have a home or children anymore
+ they start by being reasonable with gay rights, but end up pushing that and going beyond to implementing sex-changes for 6yo children
+ they demand socialism, but when Venezuela happens, then they deny that it had anything to do with socialism - they just did it wrong
+ they demand open borders and scream Islamophobia, but when rape goes through the roof, gays and Jews are getting killed and then the entire country descends into a civil war with the Caliphate, then they will likely accuse the West of racism

The left are the equivalent of the old Bolsheviks who supported the system while being already driven to a gulag for extermination. They believed their bullshit until the very end.

Wyoming also has the highest rate of gun ownership and the lowest abortion rate.

Another bit of left-on-left (LOL) violence from this month:


These people are extreme cases of Pavlovian conditioning. As an adult, if you want to spend your life fapping to porn you more or less at least need to hold down a job and a residence to do so to continue to ravenously push that button of instant gratification. If you are on the left all you have to do is open your mouth: tell people how virtuous you are and how wicked your enemies are to get your instant gratification - sense of moral superiority and moving politics. You can do that on the street.

In the last few years, as people have started standing up against the snarling left, others have realised they can do the same and as a result their button of instant gratification has stopped working so well. But they're finding they can still get their fix from attacking the mainstream and more moderate left, who will often give into them.

It would be a shame if their button of instant gratification moved so far left it stopped working.

We already have a thread The Democratic Party is Imploding, but here's something that warms my heart. The younger and much more reactionary far left has begun to try and edge out the old WASPy/jewy big govt democrats.

Politico: CA Dems decline to endorse Feinstein

SAN DIEGO — In a sharp rebuke to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the California Democratic Party has declined to endorse the state’s own senior senator in her bid for reelection.

Riven by conflict between progressive and more moderate forces at the state party’s annual convention here, delegates favored Feinstein’s progressive rival, state Senate leader Kevin de León, over Feinstein by a vote of 54 percent to 37 percent, according to results announced Sunday.

Neither candidate reached the 60 percent threshold required to receive the party endorsement for 2018. But the snubbing of Feinstein led de León to claim a victory for his struggling campaign.

“The outcome of today’s endorsement vote is an astounding rejection of politics as usual, and it boosts our campaign’s momentum as we all stand shoulder-to-shoulder against a complacent status quo,” de León said in a prepared statement. “California Democrats are hungry for new leadership that will fight for California values from the front lines, not equivocate on the sidelines.”

A centrist Democrat, Feinstein has long maintained an uneasy relationship with activists who dominate state party conventions, and the vote this weekend — while embarrassing — was not unexpected. The result followed two days of lobbying by the candidates in convention speeches and throughout the convention halls.

In an appeal to thousands of delegates Saturday, de León portrayed himself as an agent of change. He cast Feinstein, without mentioning her name, as a Washington power broker out of touch with progressive activists at home.

Who is Kevin de Leon? Kamala Harris with a dick.

This has its own thread, but Femunist (not a typo) icon and overrated writer Margaret Atwood has been attacked by the left for her support of due process for men like Aziz Ansari. Basically she wants to preserve women's sexual rights and freedoms by (rightly) asserting that women need to be held accountable for their own choices and actions, i.e. if a woman can choose to sleep with whomever she wants, we can't start going down the slope of believing every bullshit allegation, or else it will create a culture whereby women need to be constantly protected from themselves.

Atwood's Essay.

One of the leftist columns attacking her. , which opens as follows: "The essay attacking her opens as follows: "Feminist author Margaret Atwood has written an op-ed in which she basically compares women who accuse men of sexual assault to Stalinists. And she’s not alone in feeling this way. On Sunday, writer Caitlin Flanagan wrote an op-ed for The Atlantic defending Aziz Ansari after he was accused of sexual assault, calling the victim’s account “3,000 words of revenge porn.”

Even after she transitioned, the local rules required her to compete under the gender of her birth so "He" won the girls state wrestling title. Victory was met with a chorus of boos.

Yup, so s/he gets to use steroids while competing against high school girls. Totally fair and justifiable :dodgy:

In MMA there was a fighter called Fallon Fox who was a male-to-female tranny who unsurprisingly beat the shit out the girls s/he faced. I guess it's all fun and games until girls start getting their asses beat and are unable to compete in sports, which is a realm many feminists have insisted it's important for women to conquer.

That's a convincing female to male transition - the girl got blasted with plenty of testosterone for sure.


How about I am giving my 17yo boy a shitload of steroids and let him compete against the other 17yo boys? Would that be a fair fight?

Cypress Ranch senior Kayla Fitts, who was 52-0 this season before falling to Beggs 11-2 in Saturday's semifinal match, told The Dallas Morning News, "The strength definitely was the difference. I didn't anticipate how strong he was."

Asked whether she believed having to wrestle Beggs was fair, Fitts firmly responded, "No."

Why not?

"I understand if you want to transition your gender," she said. "I understand that totally. But there's a time and a place.

"You can do that after high school. Or if you want to do it, you can quit the sport. Because I don't think it's fair at all that you're taking testosterone. That's steroids. I know it's not a lot. But still."

What they hell did they expect to happen? These people have no dignity whatsoever. Exhibitionists the lot of them. An 'normal' person who were a transgender (I know, I know) would want to avoid attention, instead of ramming themselves in to every barrier they could find.

Used to comment often, that social activist / Useful Idiot types would & could never see the forest for the trees.
Never could rationalize the obvious outcomes of their demented dogma.

However, if the ultimate end is to implement a 'scorched earth' policy across the Western world.

Good for her (the disrespectful bitch.)

That's the thing about intersectionality, you have to study who you can and can not insult and dare not make a mistake. (Simplest formula: straight white man bad.)

Just like Jordan Peterson's interview with Cathy Newman, where she kept going on and on about how men keep women down and he laughed and said, "and minorities." He had to remind her that other people existed besides women.

Here's one from Air Strip One:

HUNDREDS OF WOMEN PLAN MASS RESIGNATION FROM LABOUR OVER TRANS RULING

This is a bit of a clusterfuck of social injustice in-fighting. The British Labour party has run a system of all-women-shortlists for selecting people to run for office, with the aim to increase female representation via only allowing women to run for office. As far as I know this is a ploy only used by Anti-Labour And the Illiberal Autocrats.

Under Comrade Corbyn's leadership Labour recently had a foray into the politicisation of transgenders and appointed a biological man (Munroe Bergdorf) who prefers to be a woman as an LGBT adviser. She had recently been dropped as a model by L'Oreal for a history of comments such as saying that white people are the most destructive oppressive force on planet earth. During that storm she was followed by Corbyn on Twitter and shortly afterwards she became directly employed by him. After some of her homophobic tweets were revealed, she decided to step down due to "abuse". She (who appears to be half-cast) also said that suffragettes were white supremacists.

Now Labour has decided that biological men who prefer to be women are eligible to be selected for their all-female-shortlists. This has caused a collective outrage from Anti-Labour feminists who declare all-female-shortlists should only be for biological women. So far they've raised £25,000 for the cause. Will GoFundMe kick these anti-LGBT bigots off their platform like they did with these horrible Christian bakers? This has all the makings of an epic social justice saga.

It's reminiscent of another recent incident where the gay, half-cast editor of The Gay Times was fired for: racism, homophobia, sexism, anti-Semitism, anti-fat bigotry and classism. I'll imagine your shock.
