Why the old Left was better than the new Left

Claire LehmannAustralian Contributor

I like the old Left better than the new Left. For one, the old Left actually marched for free speech while the new Left prefers to riot to shut people up.

The Old Left was about challenging censorship, control and authority. The new Left IS the authority.

The Old Left once championed blue-collar workers. The new Left demonizes blue collar men for things like saying "hello" to women in the street.

The Old Left argued against segregation and judging a person by the colour of their skin. The new Left argues SPECIFICALLY for segregation and judging people by the colour of their skin.

The new Left is so confused that they actually think that celebrating other cultures is bad, and that racial identity politics is good.

Even Justin Trudeau, the most social justice friendly PM in the world, has been accused of being a white supremacist, by BLM Canada.

The new Left shuts down airports because apparently petrol fumes are racist.

When they hold marches in Australia, they tell people to rock up in black clothing, because there aren’t enough black people to join in the march.

The point I’m trying to make here is that something has gone very badly wrong...

This would be funny if it weren’t so scary.

The momentum of the pendulum is constantly challenging gravity… It swings both ways until the Clock stops.

The left only knows to push further left by bitching more and more.

The old left you speak of were actual Liberals – civil libertarians. The “Left” old and new has always been a 5th column activist vehicle for communism – the wonderful egalitarian utopia that murdered 300 million of its own citizens. The left is commie light or commie heavy – Liberals have all vanished unto CPC ranks

I can’t imagine the new left voting for Paul Marten or John Chretien. They would be labelled far right extremists in the new political spectrum.

I’ve been getting up to speed on classical liberalism. What we have today is socialism prepping totalitarian foot soldiers. Amidst the madness there are some liberals waking up to conservatism and tru liberalism. Hope?

Good subject but it would be nice if there was little more passion when you spoke.

George Dyer; No, but I remember the fake spitting incedent. It came from the grassy knoll.

Do you remember when the Tea Party protesters were destroying private property, burning businesses and shutting down free speech?
Me neither.

@chris Farley…How are we to know who and what you are? At least…if you are not using a nom de guerre…we know the name your mother gave you.

Please state your case and your grievance if you have one. As I buddhist I recognize that a person’s very identity is the story of their suffering. That is what they will tell you when you first become intimate. That is what they will “share” at the twelve step meeting…that and their first name.

There are no white men more “privileged” than those who’s suffering has been so small that they must appropriate the suffering of others in order to even have an identity.

Chris Farley…..identify your…..self……..:-)

Welcome aboard Claire. From the earliest emergence of MGTOW we had supporters, bloggers and YOUTUBE pundits who were Austrailian women…..I would assume you are persona non grata with Status of Sheilas……..:-)

Claire , well said .

Claire welcome to the bright side “THE REBEL” it’s nice to have a voice from down under.
The same can be said for the woman’s movement they have won all their battles and now they disparish men just look at any commercial on T.V.
when black lives matter spew their hatred for “the sub human species the white race” all I can say is stop using all the products that the white race has brought to humanity.
