Life imitates “Twilight Zone” as leftist bullies get their way

David MenziesMission Specialist

“It’s a Good Life” ranks as one of the most disturbing Twilight Zone episodes — a nightmare scenario where adults are forced to cower and acquiesce to the whims of a child with omnipotent powers who starts behaving like a merciless dictator.

I reference this 56-year-old episode to point out that the narrative has kind of come true.

In our present-day PC reality, it seems more people in positions of power routinely cower and acquiesce to the demands of those individuals and groups that act out in an infantile manner.

Whether it’s Black Lives Matter or the tranny “community” or some uber-sensitive broccoli-eater, in each case, their bizarre whims and outrageous demands were – and continue to be – accommodated.

It’s as if THEY collectively have the God-like powers of that little boy in the Twilight Zone episode while those in charge behave like the terrified adults residing in the town.

Unlike the fictional character, those aforementioned groups and individuals have no real power, but thanks to the virus that is political correctness, apparently standing up to those espousing nonsensical demands might lead to accusations of racism or “trans-phobia” or anti-veganism.

And so it is that in our present-day reality, the lunatic fringe continues to get its merry way, and I don’t think even the late great Rod Serling could have come up with a script this outlandish.

Glenn Craig in the US i know that they aren’t , that is why they are going ballistic. I hope Trump destroys all the corrupt scum.

Glenn Craig; I hope you’re right, not just because ACLU and Soros deserve it, but the battle weary need the odd victory to bouy their spirits.

@drew Wakariuk…actually Drew…and this is good news, the whiners are not getting their way. Don’t let the LUGENPRESS REALLY FAKE NEWS fool you.

George Sauron is now distancing himself from his rent-a-riots. He is being sued for half a billion for whathe has done so far and just the lawfare costs could go beyond that even if he manages to fend thos lawsuits off…….so his Orcs are going to have to pay their own bus fare.

I got an inside tip….source I cannot disclose…that the rioters in DC were caught plotting on camera by Project Veritas. This was not enough for a pre-emptive arrest but it was enough for what may prove to be a trend setting surveileance warrant sort of like wire tapping. As the identified leaders left the bus and got patted down for weapons as is permitted under DC protest regulation laws, RFID chips were planted in their clothing…so that their masks did not hide their identity during the riot and they have been charged accordingly. Trump is fully prepared to bleed the ACLU funding dry.

There is much more where that came from.

Anyone who doubts this need only look at the US after Trump won, the whiners are not getting their way and they are going ballistic and attacking those who do not put up with their crap.

Chris Farley excellent comment.
Peter Babich yep, that gets proven time and time again.

Thus. Reality is stranger than fiction.

CANADIAN MONGREL, “Both the requirement of a gay-straight alliance and multiplex bathrooms are excused from religious schools of a particular religion, and public schools with a significant population of said religion”. I also understand that said religion has a strong deterrent with respect to any student in their schools requesting a GSA. It’s called honour killing.

The death of logic, reason and common sense is evidence that the end of this age is coming quickly. Any society that wholeheartedly embraces stupidity is doomed to fall. And the end can’t come soon enough for me.

Canadian Mongrel, Justin Trudeau’s purpose is to follow the wishes of the man with the messianic complex, George Soros.

Ron Voss,

Both the requirement of a gay-straight alliance and multiplex bathrooms are excused from religious schools of a particular religion, and public schools with a significant population of said religion. I would specify the religion but M-103 says I’m phobic if I do.

The Twilight Zone episode “To Serve Man” is a perfect allegory for the absolute folly of embracing Islam. In the episode , benign and peaceful aliens offer to serve man on earth as well as taking them on a holiday to their advanced planet. Of course the book (like the Quran) when translated turns out to be a cookbook. I know I’m going to end up in the Canadian Gulag so I am writing out my own information …

Don Allan on the 18th of February in the Province of Ontario did blaspheme Islam to wit ; referred to the holy Quran in a demeaning and hateful manner by calling it a cookbook. Contrary the The Liberal Party of Canada’s Criminal Code.

David thanks for exposing the rampant insanity of the progresives’ political correctness.
Here in Alberta, schools are required to set up a Gay Straight Aliance if one or more students in a school demands it, even in a private Christian school. The NDP Education Minister has advised students that they have the ‘right’ to go to whichever bathroom they choose, and if they experience any resistance to that ‘right’, they are encouraged to contact him directly.

Menzoid, Don’t be triggering the Uber Sensitive Broccoli Eaters. You should trademark that line.

A Rebel Fan:

While I agree that Baby Doc has similarities to Anthony Freemont there are some glaring differences:

1. Anthony did have a talent, Baby Doc has no talents.

2. Anthony had a purpose for the use of his talent, Baby Doc is purposeless.

3. Anthony had the intellectual, emotional and social capacity of a six year old; Baby Doc is still at the two year old tantrum stage.

Other than that, you are correct!!! ;)

Dave: Good screed today – and as the decade drearily wears on it will become more pertainent as the major cause of social-democratic dysfunction in our nation and culture.

The ugly truth of it is we abandoned our responsibility as parents for instilling absolute moral values in our kids to the state and mass media – in many case the nanny state took that responsibility from us by force – and after a life time of having no role models but those on preachy regressed sitcoms and guilt messaging culture industy we send them to be finished psychotics at university which is simply a finishing school for neurotic Bolshevism.

They are essentially a cult. They are the conditioned mind control experiments of cultural Bolshevism. They react not think, they strike out not reason, they slander not discuss. A socialist education and culture industry has gone off the rails and programmed a generation of Quislings and sent them on a generational war with their parents – or anyone else who dissents to the unreasoning psychopathy they have been indoctrinated in.

It is at a point where this programming has a whole generation self destructing intellectually, morally and culturally – it believes that thug tactics is political expression, that slander and stigmatization is debate and that violence is reason, might makes right and conflict is a positive change agent. It is a suicide cult.

It will not end well.

Was there not a similar “Outer Limits” episode where the kid sends the adults into Cartoon Land? Or was that the Twilight Zone movie re-make of the corn field?

Anyway, I think cartoon land is more appropriate to our current society, because people like the BLM leader, trans leaders, ultra-femme leaders, and Baby Doc, are all straight out of the cartoons.

Welcome to The Twilight Zone starring Justin Trudeau as Anthony Freemont (because it’s 2017).

Chris; good point, I’ll use that.

Chris Farley… That is an excellent terminology as to reference them as a “single interest” group as opposed to a “special interest group”

Twilight Zone is the best description of this era that I’ve ever heard.

The PC tyranny mentioned above is in full evidence in Sweden. The Express reports Oli Smith reports that the " Journalist Ami Horowitz has told Fox News people high up in the Swedish government are purposely covering up the prepretrators of rape crimes to protect “vulnerable” migrants.

During an explosive interview, Mr Horowitz claimed the refugee violence crisis was out-of-control but that “European virtues” had put a stop to any discussion on the statistics".

I believe they should be called “single” rather than “special” interest groups, as in ME.
