The Left and the Mirror

She’s right.

The only way to interpret what Miss Carano said as anti-Semitic is if you say that what was done to the Jews was wrong, but that doing it to those with different political views is right.

To elaborate on this slightly– that would mean that what the Nazis did to the Jews was sometimes right. Because some Jews would have the political views that made their treatment in such a manner an acceptable action.

According To Hoyt

So, over the last 24 hours, my feed and my online conversations have all been about Gina Carano.

I can’t begin to tell you how completely bizarre this is for the woman who never watches TV or movies. This is not a brag, by the way. It’s a combination of being ADD and not USED to consuming my stories that way, since we only got a TV when I was eight, and even then… well, Portugal didn’t have many hours of TV a day. I go through phases of watching series — usually British mystery, though it’s starting to get hard not to find them bizarrely and stupidly “woke infused” — but usually only when I’m sick or very depressed.

Normally I wouldn’t even have noticed this mess, except that my friends had all been into the new ST series, and were all very upset.

MOSTLY what they were very…

  1. Thing is, the Left is not truly concerned about what the Nazis did to the Jews. The left uses American distaste for what the Nazis did to the Jews to stigmatize the Nazis, in order to use the Nazis as a club to hit the right with, but the true reason the left hates the Nazis is the failure of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact, and that the NSDAP was not their favored flavor of totalitarian technocratic murderous nutjobbery.

    Hitler is a target of their two minutes hates, and they pull us into the ones targeting him, but they have no problem with Hitler’s careless waste of human lives. The reason they hate Hitler is that he warred against Stalin. Their hatred of Hitler is the same as their hatred for Reagan, W, Trump, because they cannot abide someone going against a leftist insider, much less doing so and drawing or even winning.

    The folks like W, Romney, the late McCain, and the others are simply mistaken who from ignorance and malice treat the left as if the left hates what the Nazis did to the Jews. You cannot hate the inhumanity of the holocaust without loving and having respect for human life. And respecting human lives ultimately means caring more for them than about some theory that fits past data. So the left’s determination to sacrifice lives to make the theory work is inconsistent with respect for human life.

    1. Nailed it! The only reason Hitler is even pretended to be “Right-wing” at all was to make Uncle Joe (unmistakably on the Left and already the icon of the hard-left in his own lifetime) look like One-Of-The-Good-Ones. The parallel demonization of McCarthy and other inconvenient (disobedient, unsubmissive) Republicans since was an added bonus.

      But the most critical point is, as you said: You cannot hate the inhumanity of the Holocaust without loving and having respect for human life. And respecting human lives ultimately means caring more for them than about some theory that fits past data. Ergo, by contraposition (if A then B, therefore since not B, then not at all A), when the Left denounce the Holocaust, it’s not the inhumanity they hate about it, no matter what they say or tell themselves.
