They really are utterly convinced

Similar theme to the first post but looking at the main miscreants aside from the MSM.

When someone like Schumer says that he very much fears that life as it was in America is under dire threat from Trump,the rule of law, people I’ve spoken with think it means he fears the hand of law coming down, ditto with Brennan, Comey et al.  Especially the case if Trump gets back.

But when you get to the people further down the ladder, it’s quite amazing how they talk – as if they’re not supporting wrong at all but are the white knights against monsters – us.

They speak of this sort of thing:

Last September Extinction Rebellion demanded the UK create a citizens climate assembly, to oversee British climate policy. Climate Assembly UK is the result.

Now, coming from a Clegg or Schumer, well it’s out-and-out lying, for an agenda. But the ‘lesser’ players in some cases really seem to believe in their wrongheadedness, they’re not just BSing.

Many on the non-Woke side also want more citizen input but that’s to try to stop govt agendas such as Climate Bollox or HS2 or those sorts of things.  It’s more direct democracy many non-Woke demand, hence the rise of the Brexit Party.

But of course – the other side want more direct democracy to ensure their elite-handed-down wrongness ca go ahead.  It’s quite bizarre and quite dismaying.

Because as a weekend post said, it’s not the blacks and others, it’s ex-Protestant whites doing this – they are fanatical, not to do wrong in their eyes, but to do good as they wrongly see it.

They’re manipulated meatheads, yet that’s exactly how they see us.  They do this ‘fact checking’ thing but it’s only ‘facts’ to suit them, iffy and not difficult to debunk – Watts-Up has done much of that debunking.

In the 60s, the left were fine with attacking govt and the elite, now they’re working for them.

    I don’t think we can say with any sureness that somebody is convinced of their cause unless

    1. They are risking something for it. Anybody in the Establishment who is speaking for an Establishment view is being conformist, they don’t need to be convinced.

    2. When they are honest. If someone can state the situation honestly – state their opponents behaviour honestly – then they are probably convinced of their rightness. When, as usual, people are dishonest about their opponents (misrepresent, select, distort, outright fabricate etc) ; that suggests to me that they do not think truth is on their side.

    3. From my experience working in the NHS bureaucracy (Health Authorities), and in universities over the past 20 years or so, dishonesty is habitual among the professional middle classes and middle managers. As I say, they don’t lie every sentence – because some sentences need to be factually correct in order for the lies to be effective – but they are dishonest in every paragraph. People only need to be ‘convinced’ that something is good for their career – that is all the convincing they need, and it is regarded as equivalent to ‘true’.

    People are not naturally honest – except within small loyalty circles; but several aspects of British life used-to-be honest – science especially, most of academic (except social sciences), doctors among themselves… but nowadays all that has changed. I find it appalling, really shocking, how quickly it happened – the basic reason is quite simple – the first generation to be brought up in a secualr society had no reason to be honest, except expediency – so when it is expedient to be dishonest; then people are dishonest.

    Also, feminisation. On average, women regard honesty as a low priority, in practice so low as to be ignorable. Most women regard the pointing out of dishonesty not as a factual observation but as ‘being mean’; and are genuinely shocked – they are so uninterested by truth that they lie without even knowing what they do. Men, by contrast, usually know when they are lying.

      How much do you think that Schwartz György is risking for his convictions? Of course, much of the funding he “provides” actually comes to his NGOs from governments, but very few of those $$$ go to antifa…

      Same for Bloomberg.

      Even when exercising their greatest duplicity women are always sincere because they are yielding to some natural feeling–Balzac

    No,they don’t, they want you to do what you’re told to do, with them doing the telling.

      They yearn for the “good old days” of their Messiahs – Lenin and Stalin. As Schiff and Nadler recently showed on the west side of the Pond!

      “And they also want you to do what you’re told to do, with them doing the telling.”

      There, fixed it.

    Davis Bowie sang about the man who sold the world. I’d like to know who bought it and for how much. What could someone want so much that they would do such a thing? There is sheer evil blackness in their hearts and the shades of grey have infected so many people.

    All that we can do is shine a light into the darkness. One person’s light won’t illuminate much but could attract another light. And so on. We have a blueprint to follow, this has been done before and can be done again. Maybe it needs to be done every couple of thousand years.
