“Local NBC Reporter Hilariously Denies Soviet Flags Present At May Day Rally: ‘What Do They Represent?’”
I’m not surprised to read this. In my view the basic function of liberal (and specifically Marxist) doctrine is to deny reality.
The specific fact of reality that absolutely must be denied under all circumstances is that each of us as human beings has right to say no.
No to the demand for obedience. No to the demand for material support. And no to the demand for absolute power over our lives.
Liberals, and the left in general, are parasites on human society. Without the power to compel others to materially support them the members of the left would be compelled either to become rational and productive people or to literally die off.
And it is not enough for the Left, especially their leaders, to be materially supported. They must also feel secure in their status as the masters of the productive. They must stage spectacular rituals of mass obedience to create and reinforce their feelings of security.
The parades on May Day and anniversary of the local ruling party's ascent to power. The hours-long speeches that must be listened to with total attention and applauded with the greatest of enthusiasm. And don't be the first to stop applauding when the leader speaks, that's disloyal!
To the left, every word of dissent or refusal is in practical effect a sentence of death for each of them. It is no surprise that they are hostile to actual thought based on actual facts.
