When a man shows you who he is, believe him. – Maya Angelou

     Among the great weaknesses of the Right is our powerful desire to believe that our opponents are fundamentally just as decent as we are. There’s actually some rationality behind that assumption. If our opponents are not fundamentally decent – that is, if they don’t share our core convictions about good and evil – we have no chance of reasoning with them. As we’re determined to prevail politically with logic and evidence rather than through bloodshed, the assumption is vital to keeping our guns in the closet.

     But the evidence is strong that the Left does not agree with our convictions about good and evil. Now and then we get more of it.

     Quite recently, Pramila Jayapal sought to deflect discussion from HAMAS’s rapes and other brutalizations of Israeli girls. From an open HAMAS supporter, the impulse to dismiss their atrocities might be understandable…but giving in to it indicates a missing moral foundation. Either that, or she’s seriously stupid. And yes, I suppose it could be both, though that leaves her tenure in Congress unexplained.

     A few days later, a New York University law professor tried to justify those rapes as less evil than Israel’s military response:

     It’s difficult to believe someone that morally empty could hold a law professorship at a prominent law school, but this is 2023.

     The most illuminating giveaway of all is a few years old. Regard the little video below: a segment from a “debate” over what European policies should be toward the waves of “refugees” flooding Europe:

     Note that the leftists, Simon Schama and Louise Arbour, scoff at the plague of sexual violence – rape, often gang rape, and often of underage girls – that the “refugees” have inflicted on the women and girls of Europe, and imply that the position of the Right is founded on prudery or “newborn feminism.” Mark Steyn’s riposte devastates them, simply by citing a handful of the known incidents the leftists were determined to dismiss with weak sarcasms.

     But what does it really signify that Arbour and Schama regard violent sexual predation as something they can dismiss with a flip remark? Are these persons to whom you would entrust the care of a young girl? Would you be confident that they would protect her from the sort of vermin Mark Steyn cited? Or might their attitude be “Well, different cultures” or perhaps “Hey, these things happen” – ?

     A man who’s willing to countenance the sacrifice of women’s and young girls’ bodies to debatable “humanitarian” priorities, or for the sake of some political or economic advantage, or perhaps merely to prevail over an ideological opponent, has embraced evil. Arbour and Schama have shed all pretense to the contrary. They have shown us who they are, and we should believe them.

     Good men don’t compromise with evil. They don’t try to reason with evil. They fight evil. They do their utmost to destroy it. The rest is left as an exercise for the reader.

    Ahhhh Jayapal, where do we begin with this thing? In her case I believe that one of the things that drives her is the fact that she is hideously ugly. My grandfather made this observation about one of my great aunts at a family dinner way back in the 70’s.

    My great aunt was being argumentative at a family Thanksgiving gathering about just about everything and no she hadn’t been drinking -yet, the Calvados had yet to be poured. She picked a fight with my grandfather and it was over nothing, but she wouldn’t let it go. She got up and left the room and my grandfather turned to me and said, “Let that be a lesson to you. Ugly people are among the most miserable people you’ll ever meet.” I don’t like to speak ill of the dead, but she was homely, being a relative by marriage. Jayapal is in the same category. Here we have someone who racially, culturally and religiously is NOT an American, I don’t care what her papers say, and yet she has a seat in our government and is telling Americans that their history, culture, traditions and people basically suck with a bitter vindictiveness that would put Hillary to shame. She’ll never be a Frederique Van Der Waal and she knows it.

    We, our government, seems powerless to stop illegal immigration.  Too many on the left oppose any effort to stop it.  What is needed is something along the lines of what DeSantis did by sending a plane load of illegals to Martha’s vineyard.  But more effective.  Send them to the left wing judges neighborhood.  Give them a tent and a meal and keep feeding them but only if they all stay on the judge’s lawn.  Send them to Democrat congressmen’s neighborhoods with the same conditions.


    But at least  we should be able to get the federal government to stop giving them money.
