እራሱን ለመሆን የማይፈልግ ሰው ከንቱ፣ ደካማና ውዳቂ ነው። አንዳንዶች የራሳቸውን ቋንቋ ትተው እንግሊዝኛ በመቀላቀል ለመንጠራራት ሲሞክሩ ሳይ በጣም እንቃቸዋለሁ….አዲስ አበባ ወጣት ሴቶቹ በደንብ መናገር በሚችሉት አማርኛቸው መካከልIt’s like…ወደዚያ ለመሄድ ስልit’s like…እያሉ ሲቀባጥሩ ስሰማቸው፡ “ምን ያህል እንደሚያስጠላባቸው ባወቁት” ያስብላል።

የራሱን ትቶ የሌላውን የሚኮርጅ እንደ አውራሪስ ይደነባበራል!

The Rampant Incivility Of The Left

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 28, 2017

left-brain-right

As the weeks march on in the Donald Trump presidency, the rhetoric of the Left, the Democratic Party, and the Hollywood elites has continued to plumb new depths in crassness and incivility, with far too many in a mad dash to outdo the other in being as outrageous as possible. Those vehemently opposed to Donald Trump are apparently incapable of voicing coherent and compelling criticism. Via the constant drumbeat of insinuation (or at times explicitly), far too many cannot seem to get beyond comparing Trump to the brutal despots of the past century, as well as indiscriminately tossing around Fascism in their disparagement of the conservative movement and all on the right side of the political spectrum.

It has become increasingly a staple of left-wing political bombast to compare one’s adversaries to the primary villains of World War II. Today, about 5% of the U.S. population has any recollection of those years. It has, therefore, become far too easy to demean and diminish the genesis and consequences of that fateful period as the education establishment, dominated by the Left, deliberately avoids teaching the realities of that era. Thus, opening the door for the demagogues to miscast those years for their own ends.

The compulsion to compare, either directly or deviously, one’s political opponent to Fascists, Nazis, Hitler, or Mussolini is indicative of the so-called Progressives’ inability to present a coherent argument in support of their policies. The mindless references to the World War II period (including the 1930’s) are an affront to and a denigration of the memory of nearly 60 million people who died in the War and the countless millions who suffered and were displaced. Far too many on the left side of the political spectrum, who so glibly throw around these comparisons, apparently do not know, or do not care to acknowledge, the socialist underpinning of Nazism and its parent Fascism and do not have the slightest concept of the real-life experiences of those who were there.

For many, their frame of reference for the War is perhaps a grainy, yet impersonal, black and white film of ashen faces staring into a camera; or a faded photograph of emaciated children begging for food; or a newsreel of lifeless bodies strewn across a field. To others, it is sitting in a movie theatre being entertained for two hours watching either a fictionalized Hollywood portrayal of the War or a cartoonish depiction of the villains of that era. These photographic images are quickly forgotten and the celluloid depictions are praised or panned for their entertainment value and box office. But to those of us who lived through those days and the aftermath do not have the luxury of forgetting or being entertained. Our experiences haunt us every hour, day and night.

Therefore, as a displaced war orphan and a wounded survivor of World War II, I must speak out on behalf of those who cannot and say that those who traffic in these invidious comparisons are beneath contempt. This mindlessness is now totally out of control as I was recently accused of being a Fascist because I support a freeze in all immigration from those nations overtly sympathetic to Islamic radicalism.

Conservatism and adherence to the Constitution is not, by any stretch of the imagination, akin to Fascism. Nor is Donald Trump remotely close to being the next Hitler or Stalin or Mao Tse-Tung. Further, the people of this nation will never willingly go down the disastrous path these despots of the Twentieth Century laid out for their countries.

During the primary season, I was not a supporter of Donald Trump; in fact I was a vociferous opponent and openly endorsed and financially supported Ted Cruz. While I applaud much of what he has done to date, I still view Trump with some degree of skepticism and wish he would tone down some of his over the top rhetoric. I acknowledge that he does possess narcissistic and authoritarian tendencies; however, so do nearly all overly-ambitious men and women. As compared to the mindset of his predecessor, Barack Obama, Donald Trump has an affection for this nation and its people. He is not someone bent on domination, destruction or violent transformation of this nation.

Those who are mindlessly opposed to Trump and the conservative movement only demean themselves by making odious comparisons, either directly or by insinuation, to those in the pantheon of the most vile and evil men to ever walk the face of the earth. The various factions of the Left that traffic in this demagoguery succeed only in being complete incoherent fools — not in convincing others of their viewpoints.

It is an admission that the Left knows it cannot compete in the larger arena of ideas. They know the only means they have to accumulate power and win elections is by:

  1. Destroying the opposition through vile personal attacks,

  2. Organizing and pre-planning demonstrations to appear spontaneous,

  3. Orchestrating occasional violence at marches to ensure media coverage,

  4. Utilizing their allies in the mainstream media to propagate false and misleading stories, and

  5. Accelerating the spread of outright socialist anti-American propaganda through their fellow travelers in the education and entertainment establishment.

These are, in fact, some of the same strategies utilized by the despots of recent history in their seizure of power. If there is any group in the United States today that could be truthfully compared to the Fascists, it is the current iteration of the American Left.

Recently a friend of mine in Israel, who as a child survived Auschwitz, passed away. Last year we had a discussion about the worsening crisis in the Middle East and what it portends. Among the points of conversation was the fact that mankind never learns one very important lesson from the past: a significant portion of the human race has an insatiable appetite for power and control and will do literally anything to achieve it. The lessons of the 1930’s and 40’s will be lost in the mists of time if the people and events of those years continue to be diminished by exploiting them for meaningless political fodder and to vanquish one’s political foes as the contemptible Left, including Hollywood, is attempting to do today.

European Pathology Hasn’t Changed

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 3, 2016

NarcismDelu

After the Hitler and Stalin disasters, Europeans swore “Never Again!” over and over again. Never Again to the Holocaust and Stalin massacres, but also to the many occasions of mass bloodshed that began with the wars of the Reformation.

And yet, today we can see Europe’s boastful old narcissism again.

It is a troubling and ominous sight.

I don’t mean to pick on Europe — there are plenty of mad political movements in the world. But Europe has been the source of all major international wars for centuries. Maybe it was only the Industrial Revolution that made Europe so destructive. But its neurotic repetition compulsion goes back at least to the invention of the printing press, which made mass political movements possible.

Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad,” said the Greeks, and they were right. The very same signs of severe mental pathology seem to show up before every major bloodletting in history. If you look for historical patterns, you can see the signs long before mass violence breaks out again. Today, the most stunning example of pathology is visible in the suicidal policies of the European Union, a grossly dysfunctional family if ever there was one.

Many historians consider World War I to be the greatest disaster of the 20th century, because it killed a whole generation of highly educated men, who could have given constructive political and cultural leadership for decades to come. World War I itself was triggered by a century of tit-for-tat Franco-German wars, and it led directly to Hitler and the Cold War.

The war brought Lenin to power in Russia, followed by the first Marxist Terror. Hitler’s rise was driven by a desire to take revenge for WW I. Without WW I the world would have been spared much suffering.

Every European disaster echoes the previous one, which is why the historical pattern looks so neurotic. Europe’s propaganda line changes, but it always comes down to the same old narcissistic grandiosity, the same glorious rhetoric of Empire. Today the European Union is seriously intent on taking over the world via bureaucratic imperialism, using a network of international “laws” that nobody has ever voted for. Euro-imperialism is the reason behind the global climate fraud.

Not surprisingly, in the end the Eurocracy serves no one but itself. The elite helped to ruin viable economies on its own Mediterranean shores, simply in pursuit of a glorious new euro currency; the EU has knowingly imported 50 million easily radicalized Muslims; and Euromedia have fallen back into their bad old habits of viciously scapegoating anybody who stands in the way of their fantasy life. Europrop is no different from the imperial propaganda of Kaiser Wilhelm, Hitler, or Stalin. Only the designated scapegoats change.

(See this website for excellent coverage of the German media).

America and Israel are Europe’s favorite scapegoats today — putting Germany into that old mood of arrogant superiority — but scapegoating is a primitive emotional defense mechanism, which can be directed at any target. The psychology of scapegoating empowers demagogues — it’s practically the definition of demagogy. Which what makes Europolitics so neurotic today.)

For 70 years American power helped to hold back Europe’s mood swings, by protecting the Continent from Soviet aggression. Europe responded to Uncle Sam’s free ride by cannibalizing its own defense capabilities, to buy more welfare votes to keep the Left in power.

As a direct result, today the EU is utterly helpless in the face of Putin’s new imperialism. The end of the Cold War and the rise of Jihad has ripped the lid off that leaky old pressure cooker. The EU is defenseless without the U.S., and the Obama administration has systematically pulled down all the West’s strategic defenses.

This story will not end well.

Historians still argue why WW I ever started, because they can’t figure out any sane motivation. The assassination of Archduke Ferdinand in Sarajevo in 1914 was the act of a madman, but it never posed a strategic danger. Nobody benefited from war; instead, Europe ruined itself. The French had cheered on generations of anti-German propaganda, and the Germans hated the French just as much, while the Brits tried to pit the other powers against each other.

But even today nobody knows why the two opposing alliances suddenly went to all-out war, leading to millions of deaths. WW I followed the usual mass propaganda campaign, nationalistic scapegoating, and revanchisme (revenge campaigns), repeating all the old Franco-German wars. But that is not a rational reason for a world war.

The world wars followed a purely neurotic compulsion to do what was never done before, covered up with delusional propaganda slogans. Just like today.

Why is this neurotic history relevant today? Because Merkel’s collapse before the “Syrian rapefugee” invasion is simply not explainable on sane and rational grounds. Recent news reports say that 90% of the phony “Syrian” refugees were men, mostly of military age. We hear that news now, but Merkel has an intelligence apparatus to tell her long before the invasion happened. And yet — she acted completely shocked, helpless, and self-destructive.

This is not rational.

Jihadists are not just after trendy sex. They are doctrinaire killers, slave-takers, torturers and terrorists, who will quickly impose brutal Shari’a slavery on as many women as possible. The police in Germany, Norway, and Sweden are acting helpless. In Norway the cops retreated before a mob engaged in mass rape of a ten-year-old boy, the most shameful European surrender to sadistic barbarism since you-know-who.

The Jihad invasion is an obvious return to the psychology of the Hitler Jugend, who were also young, easily indoctrinated males, happy to die for Der Fuehrer. Jihadists kill and die for Allah, but the mindset is similar. Jihadists are stuck in pre-modern times, in the glorious war theology of the 7th century desert.

If Angela Merkel doesn’t know that, she is grossly ignorant.

Turkey was probably a major power behind the overwhelming wave of jihadist immigrants. But there is reason to think that the EU, which has been trying to dilute its own native populations by mixing in some of the least adaptable immigrants, was also behind the biggest Trojan Horse in history.

The European Union, which generates constant peace-and-love propaganda, is a complete and utter fraud. Nobody in the Eurocracy is actually elected by voters. European voters are completely helpless, and national parliaments are constantly yielding power to the appointed bureaucracy in Brussels. All EU propaganda consists of barefaced lies. This is a mass psychiatric problem — self-delusion being the biggest sign of neurosis.

Reality distortion is always the key. Narcissistic grandiosity is simply the boastful lie that such people tell themselves to compensate for nagging feelings of inferiority. Badly depressed people have the opposite problem: They are cruelly self-critical. True psychotics suffer from extremely disturbing auditory hallucinations, and paranoids suffer from a host of delusional suspicions. But they all suffer from a distorted sense of reality.

T.S. Eliot wrote that “Humankind cannot bear too much reality.” But how can you help more than 300 million people who are constantly indoctrinated in the newest grandiose-narcissistic-imperialistic dream of the ruling class? Narcissists only improve when they finally realize that they keep running into the same brick wall, over and over again. It’s very hard to change individual narcissists, and when a whole media culture turns into a narcissistic cult…

Massive delusion via the media is always the first sign of a European disaster in the making. The musical Cabaret takes place in the Weimar Republic before Hitler, when Europe went through the same kind of self-loathing and self-sabotage that we saw in “multiculturalism.” But the disease goes back before the French Revolution, which was also preceded by a cultural breakdown. Marquis de Sade wrote several of his books around the time of the French Revolution.

When Europe sneezes, America catches cold. Our university campuses are full of Eurosocialist propaganda artists pretending to be professors. Barack Obama and his fellow leftists are just as deeply indoctrinated: Eurosocialists verging on old-style Leninists. Obama has never really known any normal people, which is why he still believes exactly what he believed eight years ago.

Our media are mental plague carriers. While journalists used to learn their craft by doing it, today they first have to go through cult indoctrination at Columbia or Harvard. Which is why we have actors wearing trenchcoats instead of television news anchors, and a grandiose narcissist in the White House.

The European Union was founded by French bureaucrat Jean Monnet. It began as a free trade area, becoming a great economic success.

But prosperity was never good enough for the bureaucracy. In some half-hidden way the EU has charted a path to a new European Empire, the old, delusional dream of making Europe a great power again.

All for the sake of world peace, of course.
