Rage. And Hate: Inside the Mind of a Virtue Signaler

Michelle’s Mirror: The following are excerpts from Ten Reasons Why I Am No Longer a Leftist, a 2014 piece written by Dr. Danusha V. Goska. I thought of Francine pink’s niece, and all of the other virtue signalers out there as I read it.  It was recently republished on Watts Up With That as “a primer on the hatred of climate skeptics.”

There’s nothing here you do not already know but it serves as a useful reminder that what we are dealing with is an emotional distortion of reality which makes it harder to beat back with facts. The hyperbole of hysteria does not respond well to reason. I’m sure any of you who’ve tried to “discuss” such issues with a committed leftist believer knows this; the “discussion” usually ends in an angry huff when the leftist realizes they’ve been cornered with facts and resorts to name calling.

I wish I knew the solution but if decades of lousy results aren’t enough to repudiate the politics of the Left I don’t know what will. Possibly results? A Trump presidency that Makes America Great Again?  Maybe that’s why, as you read the article, you will  note how it could as easily serve as a primer explaining the hatred directed at Trump as well.

Here are the top 10 reasons (greatly abbreviated) for Dr. Goska’s about turn:

10) Huffiness.

I felt that I was confronting the signature essence of my social life among leftists. We rushed to cast everyone in one of three roles: victim, victimizer, or champion of the oppressed. We lived our lives in a constant state of outraged indignation. I did not want to live that way anymore. I wanted to cultivate a disposition of gratitude. I wanted to see others, not as victims or victimizers, but as potential friends, as loved creations of God. I wanted to understand the point of view of people with whom I disagreed without immediately demonizing them as enemy oppressors…  MORE

  1. In The Wood of Holly, the decades old tradition of The Casting Couch remains a ritual for those actresses (and actors) young in heart, mind, but most importantly, body. It is a celebratory feast of lamb, not mutton.

    Streep, Rosie and other B, C, D and Z actors receive neither invitations to grace The Couch nor respectable scripts to consider. They are reduced to this embarrassing political “involvement”. It IS their new gig. Their ONLY gig.

  2. Glad you posted this, MJA. I’m so incredibly sick of these people. They are bad, bad people. As much as I hate to say it, we may just have to go to war against them. A real war.

  3. Behind every godless leftist is a…

    “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” ~Ephesians 6:12

    Pray against the left in The Name Of The Nazarene. 🙂

  4. The Left is the Great Pretender
    Led from afar by a cabal that has convinced yet another generation that the end justifies the means.
    How interesting that the great whore cloaks itself in the guise of the virtuous, and compassionate.

  5. This is a must read. If we want to turn the ship around, we need to light a spark in the leftists mind, give them the info that they need to hear; in this case it was David Horowitz.
    You never know what it will be, just make a good and factual point and let it sink in, don’t dismiss them out of hand.
    The worst leftist can be turned to our side, I know I was one of them.
