Why I don't identify with “new” Left

Jay FayzaRebel Columnist
 

I consider myself a Canadian Conservative but have strong liberal leanings in the realm of personal privacy, free speech, and expression. I’m also strongly against war and, yet, I would never call myself a liberal in today’s new leftism

Watch as I explain what it is about today’s left that makes me not want to identify with them despite agreeing with them on a number of major issues.

At the core of the problem with liberalism, is that Liberals sometimes want to change what shouldn’t be changed, while either offering no replacement or something far worse in its place.

New Left, Old Left……..MEH. It’s all the same failed Nirvana policies of egotists recycled and rebranded to make it look new and enlightened. It is neither. It’s just the same hellish hallucinations that come from people with good intentions and no humility.

I think we are headed to non-verbal communication.

Things were a lot better when we had, One Man One Woman and Sunday was the Seventh Day of the Week. Now all we have is freaks who are all losers and believe in Things like Trudeau.

I don’t know what else you do for a living Jay, but you would be a great college instructor.

I couldn’t agree more, Jay.

You’re pretty much got it spot on.

I agree with nearly all you said. After inviting Jesus into my life 37 years ago, I instantly was filled with Godly Wisdom and a new understanding of His Laws, and became totally aware of the sins that He hates. As a righty and a somewhat degree of a Conservative, I can listen to both sides of an issue, but as soon as the truth and the truthful facts are known, my mind is made up, unless you prove the facts otherwise. I can’t support or endorse the slaughter of God’s Unborn children, same sex marriage, homosexuals, fornication, just to name a few. The Left, the Liberals, the Democrats have shown us time and time again the side their on.

I think at one point we must go through a period of leftist influence , if just to comprehend their rationale or to listen to their agenda , but as you start paying taxes you must realize that socialism is destroying our basic ambition and drive, no one is equal to another . Jay I suspected you were leaning left , but the good left.

Good one JAY
Any thing or ideology that deviates from natural common sense doesn’t work after a while , and leads to anarchy
