The Evil Of The Political Left Is Rooted In Their Exploitation Of Tragedies

November 30, 2022

By Brandon Smith

What is the root of all evil? Money? No, not really. Money is just a tool, like a hammer, a wrench or even a gun. When I think of evil I don’t envision a handgun or a rifle or a big pile of hundred dollar bills. Instead, I see nightly news talking heads spreading disinformation and fear. I see mobs of over-emotional and ignorant activists setting fire to buildings, tearing things down because they don’t know how to build anything useful and new. And above it all, I see a small group of elites hovering, licking their chops as they fantasize about the potential power that can be gained from exploiting the chaos.

The willingness to destroy and cause suffering for personal benefit is evil. The willingness to feed off the tragedies of others is evil. And these are the cold characteristics that currently define the political left.

There have been multiple criminal events and national emergencies over the past few years that leftists have been very quick to hijack or scapegoat onto conservatives, often with embarrassing results for themselves. The most recent being the Colorado “Club Q” shooting in which 5 people died and at least 19 were injured. Here was the mainstream media’s reaction to the event, with little to no facts on hand to back their claims:

Leftists use a very predictable strategy when it comes to these kinds of high profile criminal acts – Immediately blame all conservatives and conservative principles for the crimes of one man. Even if the event had nothing to do with conservatives, let the public think it did. If a gun is involved, blame the legality of guns in general as if the weapon is the problem rather than the mental illness or psychopathy of the perpetrator.

As it turns out, the Club Q shooter suspect, Anderson Aldrich, is actually a member of the LGBT community and identifies as non-binary with They/Them pronouns. Watch this CNN anchor’s response as she is forced to admit on air that the suspect does not fit CNN’s original narrative:

She is clearly upset and bewildered at the revelation, and the guests even start making excuses, suggesting that perhaps the suspect is lying about his gender identity (which is rather ironic). But why did they react this way? Aren’t they supposed to be objective journalists merely reporting the facts as they become available? Yes, I realize the very idea is ridiculous, but it shouldn’t be. The mainstream is a hostile force seeking to demonize around half the population of America and we have grown used to it.

With this latest information on the Club Q shooting the story has all but disappeared from the news feeds as if it never happened. Just like the Waukesha Massacre perpetrated by a BLM supporter, or the the alleged attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, and dozens of other recent crimes in which the facts do not serve the establishment narrative.

What can we learn about leftists from the Club Q scenario in particular?

First, they are robotic in their responses rather than empathetic. They never pause to consider the complexities of the situation or wait to find out the truth. They jump to the conclusions they WISH were true, rather than seeking to learn more. Much like children.

Second, though the vast majority of crime in the US is committed within Democrat controlled cities and states, the left only wants to highlight a certain type of crime – mass shootings by straight white males. These events serve their political interests while the others do not. You will not hear Democrats mention the high murder rate or black-on-black crime in anti-gun cities like Chicago, for instance. They don’t care, because there’s no benefits or power to be squeezed from that ongoing tragedy.

Third, leftists are not interested in justice, they are interested in control. Justice is about punishing the people that actually committed the crime; but for them punishment of a suspect is secondary to the control that might be derived from the fear and panic the crime caused. Leftists will use any and every crisis or tragedy to demonize their political opponents.

It’s very difficult for the media to attach conservatives and the concept of hate crimes to a shooting enacted by a member of the gay community. Just as it was very difficult for them to attach white conservatives to hate crimes against Asians last year when most of the attacks were committed in heavily leftist cities by mostly black assailants.

Fourth, leftists will happily stand on the bodies of victims to undermine rational conservative positions. In the aftermath of Club Q, there was a mass campaign to attack the conservative stance against the grooming of children in public schools and “all ages” drag shows. Leftists have decided for some reason that the sexualization of children is a hill they are willing to die on, and they will stop at nothing to justify drag dances and gender identity propaganda targeting kids.

We can speculate on why Democrats are so obsessed with getting kids in front of dancing drag queens flashing their crotches, or forcing kids to use made-up identity pronouns while questioning their biology, but the simplest explanation is that they want to groom impressionable children into the leftist fold so that they can be controlled for the rest of their lives.

It’s not the LGBT part that we have a big problem with, it’s the manipulation and targeting of children we have a problem with. Even if the Club Q shooter turned out to be a hardcore conservative instead of a trans person, that still wouldn’t change the underlying situation. Two things can be true at the same time – Mass murder is wrong, and targeting children with political ideology and gender cultism is also wrong.

Fifth, leftists often claim they have no interest in taking away American gun rights while at the same time demanding our guns be taken. It seems schizophrenic if you don’t understand the concept of gaslighting, but narcissistic people often learn that saying one thing and doing the opposite is an excellent way to confuse their victims.

As mentioned, they don’t care about most crime in the US; they even try to deny rising crime statistics. However, they LOVE a mass shooting, especially the tiny percentage that involve military-style rifles, because they think it will give them the political capital needed to get a majority of people to support further gun restrictions or outright gun confiscation.

It is a fact: Leftists want to end gun rights in the US regardless of the constitution. And, they are willing to punish ALL gun owners for the crimes of a handful of people. Again, this is not about justice, this is about control. Why do they want to take away gun rights if they don’t actually care about the deaths of the people involved in crime? We can only conclude that a well armed population is a considerable obstacle to their agenda.

The media will now have to play a game of spin as the Colorado shooting case unfolds. They are already claiming that the suspect is not actually trans, as if the suspect is faking as a means to avoid hate crime charges. If this is true, it would be a meaningless gesture as hate crime charges make no difference in the overall prosecution of multiple murders. Also, generally speaking, people who commit hate crimes would be loathe to identify as the thing they are supposed to hate.

The fact remains that you cannot separate the political left from the tragedy-whoring and crisis opportunism they employ. Without constant calamity leftists serve no purpose and have no platform. They need disaster to remain relevant, and they need panic as a tool for centralizing power. They need the populace to be constantly afraid, mostly of threats that do not exist and suspicions that are misplaced.

They will attempt to gaslight and claim that conservatives are somehow the same – But we are not. We are not afraid of what we think they might do, we stand in opposition to what they are ALREADY doing. We aren’t concerned about phantom enemies and imagined crises, we are concerned about the very real antagonists on our doorstep.

This is one of the many differences between leftists and conservatives: We’re not going to attack fellow Americans for things they have not done nor suspect people without evidence, we are only interested in stopping the trespasses that are happening right in front of our eyes. We aren’t going to be victimized while our attackers pretend to be victims and we aren’t going to pretend we don’t see agendas that are obvious. Most of all, to the best of our ability we rely on the truth to make our case while leftists rely on deceit and spin.

The fact is, there is a divide now between leftists and conservatives that can never be mended. We are so different in our goals and our principles it is as if we are two different species, and for now only one side has acted consistently to destroy the other.

    “The Evil Of The Political Left Is Rooted In Their Exploitation Of Tragedies”
    We all grew up in school and knew kids who just lived and loved to berate and belittle other kids and to create problems and disorder… and who always found ways to destroy things they came in contact with. These kids grow up to be Heads of State and Corporations and Doctors and Lawyers and Public Relations Hacks and Political Creatures and Pawns and Useful Idiots and the like. And they never outgrow their need to dominate and destroy (and fit in with other deviants). And since the Left is the prominent gathering place for such social malforms… they all seem to gather and reinforce each other’s sick and twisted views of Life. Classic cult-like behavior.
    “What can we learn about leftists from the Club Q scenario in particular? First, they are robotic in their responses…”
    And why are They robotic in Their responses? They do not think. Did they think when they were little kids and poured ink over the hand-made drawings made by their classmates? Did they think when they tormented small animals after school? These creatures simply do not know how to think. They react instinctively… and their main instinct (or sole one) is to destroy property and dehumanize others. And remember… They grow up to be the ones in positions of power over Society.
    “We can speculate on why Democrats are so obsessed with getting kids in front of dancing drag queens flashing their crotches, or forcing kids to use made-up identity pronouns while questioning their biology…”
    Again, this is the modern version of tormenting a classmate and trying to make them cry or get sick. And when that classmate does cry or get sick, the perp just laughs and looks to do it again. They do not seek to help or befriend others. They seek only to disrupt and be the center of attention by causing mischief or worse.
    “… there is a divide now between leftists and conservatives that can never be mended.”
    Like oil and water… some things were designed not to exist with each other. So this is with Leftists and Freedom Lovers. One side hates freedom in all of its forms. And the other side lives for and pursuits freedoms in every way.
    We simply cannot exist in the same space. If we don’t each get to occupy a life space of own to live as we see fit, bad things are always going to happen.
    America fought a terrible war over whether it should split into two. And America is having that war all over again. It has not yet come to weapons and a trail of tears as before. But if we are not allowed to go our own ways socially and politically and physically… then someone is going to have to explain how to quickly turn Leftists into sensible, considerate, thinking, empathetic, caring, freedom-loving people that want to be useful members of a unified Society.
    Good luck with that.

    I don’t know if anyone still remembers Matthew Shepherd, but I still remember how Leftists attempted to spin the kids’ murder as being motivated by anti-gay hatred even though it was later proven to simply the result of a drug deal gone bad. I wouldn’t be surprised if people still believe his death was hate motivated to this day.

    And just as despicable as their tendency to exploit tragedies for their own gain is their tendency to revel in the misfortunes and deaths of their perceived enemies. I don’t have to tell you how they treated Kyle Rittenhouse during and after his trial. Also, not too long ago on Twitter a tweet joking about Trump passing away was trending and the leftists were all but giddy at the prospect of the man being dead. So yeah, these people really are a bunch of ghouls.

  • BeyondMind December 1, 2022 at 12:32 pm

    @Brandon- While all of things you list are true, I believe there is an underlying cause. The left are materialists. Marxism is the dominant “religion” of the left, whether it be socialism or communism. Marxism is a form of satanism. It denies the existence of God, the Creator and has a long history of hatred and destruction towards those who serve the Creator.

    For those of us who serve God, Creator, Source, we know the difference between right and wrong. We are seekers of the whole truth. God’s Law can be summed in the idea “You are free to do as you please in this 3D matrix, as long as your actions do not impinge on the growth, freedom and sovereignty of other souls, spirits- aka God’s children”. Ideally, a souls journey is focused on spiritual growth, raising your consciousness so that you remember your connection to God, Creator, Source and act in accordance with Creator. BTW, this does not mean you are a submissive. If another soul violates your God given rights, then you are free to respond in a proportional manner to correct that injustice.

    The left is wallowing in the abyss of materialism. They deny the fundamental reality of this 3D matrix- that we are a manifestation of soul, spirit connected to Source. Arguing with them is ABSOLUTELY POINTLESS. As @Roundball Shaman pointed out, if we cannot separate from them, then we will see a second civil war.

    On that note, I think the best thing we can do is convince our fellow conservatives (not the RINOs) and those on the left, that everyone’s interests would be better served if we went our separate ways. We don’t want to fight them. The gulf in our beliefs are too great to overcome. Since the left has an affinity for divorce, we should fame the left-right divide as an abusive marriage where legal separation would greatly benefit the health and welfare of both parties.

      The problem is that leftists also see people as property of the collective. You aren’t allowed to separate or walk away because that would be proof that their ideology is not as Utopian as they want people to believe.

      • BeyondMind December 1, 2022 at 7:52 pm

        Yes, I agree. However, if we stay with them, then we surrender everything that we hold most precious. They need to wallow in their own collectivism for 3-4 generations before their off-spring wake up to their failed mentality, if they ever do.

        So, the trick we would need to execute is convincing them that they would be better off without us. Kind of like how a manager convinces a problem employee to go find another job, except the scale here is much greater. The model of a family counselor dealing with a couple in an abusive relationship is relevant here. Without demonizing them, we need them to see how dysfunctional the relationship is. How continuing in this abusive relationship will just make things worse for them. If we can get them to this point, then we can maneuver them to the separation solution. Yes, I am suggesting a Problem-Reaction-Solution with neurolinguistic programming.

        As I think about the above solution, I think, realistically, we’ve run out of time. It appears to me that the Globalist are planning to implement their digital ID tracking system with CDBCs in 2023. All of the pieces are falling in place- eliminating cash everywhere, FTX scandal and recent “unfortunate” death of three crypto leaders. They will need a massive “problem” for the normies to accept their digital prisons. Perhaps, a “Dark Winter” with a cyber attack and, or a much more deadly Marburg virus with 70-80% fatality rate.

        The Globalists are not being challenged in any way and are in full control of the agenda. In the near-term, I think conservatives need to move out of the cities, find like minded people, stockpile food and medicine and self-defense items. We’ll have to go alt-tech, as freedom lovers will be locked out of the control grid. The Marburg variant sounds like a real bear.

        Any ideas of how to access the “internet” for communicating and coordinating with other conservative groups when the “Great American Firewall” goes live- where proof of digital identity is required for access?

          Sure, we can and should try to separate. What I’m saying is, don’t get your hopes up that they will be peaceful about it. They will try to stop us. In the end, this will likely result in war. Luckily conservatives are rallying around their principles and the red states are showing surprising resilience to authoritarian attempts by leftists/globalists. You are wrong about globalists not being challenged – Their covid passports and mandates failed miserably in the US, and they had to abandon their plans. When the war happens there will be far more of us than I originally dreamed possible.

    The way I see it, evil is not like a carrot but more like a large obnoxious weed that has many roots. The desire for control and power over others is one of the main roots. The LGBT crowd likes to pretend they are ‘good’ people but the denial of natural law causes them to stray from the path of goodness into many vile things. LGBT is only one of them. Whether you believe in a supreme creator or not there is such a thing as natural law that cannot be violated without a loss of conscience and the principles that guide most people’s lives must be tossed out. When they reach that point they are die hard leftists.

    I just had a regional meeting for my job and the speaker was a super woke academic with six thousand degree initials after her name. She was pear-shaped with long black curly hair and a face just like Mayim Bialik, and she constantly referred to the trama therapy she did for the kids at Sandy Hook. She was from whereever Sandy Hook is. I assumed she would clear up any doubts about Sandy Hook in between her wailing about systemic racism and gender pronouns, given her personal connection, but after three hours of speaking and intermittantly name-dropping it, she didn’t. Given that it was a very small group in a small conference room, and assuming that I’m likely the only “alt-right” person in there, it was surreal. A speaker whose claim to fame was working with Sandy Hook survivors. A part of me wondered if it was a sniffing-out operation, a sort of two minutes hate. Look around and see who might sympathize with Alex Jones/Emmanuel Goldstein.

    What about those married to a leftist? I was once one but now I see all the trappings I fell for. My husband sees me as brainwashed now, I’ve fallen down the alt-right YouTube algorithm. The hypocrisy is not lost on me. But how is division the answer? Isn’t that what they want? I fear I’d loose my children to them if I don’t stay. Luckily, I’m in the country and we both are working towards homesteading. He gets the benefits of being more self sufficient and resilient. But he is also lost in materialism. The biggest conundrum I’ve ever faced!

      If he is a true leftist, he’ll stab you in the back if it is to his advantage during a crisis. Possibly use your kids against you as well. But, a hardcore leftist would usually not be homesteading, so maybe there is hope for him.

      • Alex December 11, 2022 at 3:22 pm

        Thank you for your reply. I certainly do not think he is a hardcore or true leftist, but how would you define that? Thinking about it, I feel like there are things he is certainly FOR and then there are the things he has been TOLD to be against, and like I realized for myself, those are often conflicting. My biggest question is do you think he have to accept some idea of religion, god, the source, soul or spirit to reject the left?

          Does he support authoritarian ideals and actions? That’s the measure you should be worried about.
