Notes & Comment: Evil comes waving a flag

The flag of evil.
From all over:

Everybody be nice. Popularity and the desire to be liked are at the center of our contemporary political disasters. One of the general rules of rhetoric I’ve observed is a tendency for the nicest opinion to be preferred to the not-nice, all other things being equal. If, for instance, I were to say that most poor people in America are poor due to bad choices, and another were to say that most people in America were poor due to no fault of their own, the latter is more palatable. It is nicer. And since it is nicer, it is generally preferred by popular opinion irrespective of whether or not it is actually correct.

No, it's not Ellis Island. The use of language is key to influencing public policy and the Socialist Democrats are experts at using it to conjure up images that play to our emotions. By falsely portraying invaders as immigrants, they are attempting to connect and tie our past history of immigration to today's unlawful invasion by those who believe invading our home is their right and not a privilege.

Bring back the nuthouse. In the U.S. today, jails and prisons have become our mental asylums. The Bureau of Justice Statistics estimates that some 365,000 American adults with serious mental illness are behind bars and an additional 770,000 are on probation or parole. Two generations of policy have led to the mass closing of state mental hospitals. The extent of the resulting problems—for the seriously mentally ill in general, not just those in jails or prisons—is so widespread that a case is building to bring back the asylum, especially for those who pose a risk to others or themselves.

It's just "fundamental transformation." With the flood of new evidence from recent days, it is becoming increasingly difficult to deny that President Obama – undeniably the most pro-Russian president in American history – and his men abused the powers of their offices not only to spy on then-candidate Donald Trump but also to undermine and lay the foundation for the overthrow of Trump’s administration. After a year of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s reign of terror, complete with a rotten, corrupt FBI at his service that since the closing days of the Obama administration has become a secret police agency more like the KGB, the Stasi, or the Gestapo, than the supposedly most respected law enforcement agency in the world, routinely committing outrages against America’s free institutions that would have made J. Edgar Hoover blush.

We're not gonna take it anymore. A disproportionate percentage of those on the Left (not traditional liberals) do not lack for material needs, have no religion and are single and/or childless. Those left-wing screamers you see in restaurants, the left-wing mobs on campus, the left-wing “antifa” thugs and the left-wing Black Lives Matter demonstrators who close down bridges and highways do not generally consist of married people with children who attended church the previous Sunday. These people find this lack of purpose assuaged by leftism. It provides meaning and excitement, a very heady combination.

What evil calls itself. Pedophiles are rebranding themselves as “MAPs” or “Minor Attracted Persons” in an effort to gain acceptance and be included into the LGBT community. According to Urban Dictionary, the blanket term MAP includes infantophiles (infants), pedophiles (pre-pubescent children), hebephiles (pubescent children), and ephebophiles (post-pubescent children). Some MAPs also refer to themselves as NOMAPs or “Non-Offending Minor Attracted Persons.” These pedophiles seek to be a part of the LGBT+ community, even going so far as to make a “Pride” flag for Gay Pride Month.
