Iknow liberals. I know why they say what they say. I know what they’re going to do before they do it. I know them better than they know themselves. I know the left like I know every square inch of my glorious naked body. And that’s because I
have long studied the leftist ideology — the primordial ooze and muck from which all
things liberal emerge.
So when I tell you being a victim is the highest status in the modern liberal cosmos, and
that victimology is the engine of the left’s claims to moral authority, do not doubt me.
Look, I have been laying out for you the characteristics you need to understand about
liberals from the beginning of EIB. As you can see from the highlighted quotes from
almost 25 years ago, not a thing has changed. I was right then, and I’m right now: The
primary objective of the left, the Democrat Party, is to manipulate groups of Americans
into believing they are victims of America. Shaming and blaming the nation as founded is
the left’s mission. So, nothing is ever the victim’s fault. It’s always caused by some nefarious element of America.
This has been the source of Democrat Party power for generations.
The leftist victim cult — spread far and wide by Marxist university professors, liberal
high school teachers, Hollywood, and the media — centered, historically, on economic
class, with “the poor” accorded instant virtue. But Democrats grew tired of the tiresome
problems of poverty, as it became obvious their big-government war-on-poverty
“solutions” were a colossal failure.
So they have moved on, finding it much more productive to exploit race and gender
identity. Which is why the string of lib-mantra insults, “Racist! Sexist! Homophobe!” has
become such a cliché. But now the list is expanding to include illegal immigrants, the
“culturally appropriated,” transsexuals, transgenders, the “gender fluid” who refuse to be
“binary,” and so on. Fortunately for the left, they have a big new word, “intersectionality,”
which ties everything together into one big U.S. victimization pool.
The message: America is evil, and oppresses everyone except white males. It’s a
message that was perpetuated and amplified by Barack Obama and his corrupt
Department of Justice. Today you see it in the Black Lives Matter movement, the
vagina-hat-wearing feminists, the pro-“refugee” airport protesters — “The Resistance.”
Victimology is the glue that holds the left together, and it is victim-constituent-groups
that comprise the modern-day Democrat Party. Every leftist believes he, she, or ze is a
victim of American atrocity. The triggered ones can choose: Victim of racism, traceable
to America’s original sin of slavery. Victim of sexism, traceable to the males-vote-
only Founders. Victims of homophobia. Victims of bigotry. Victims of xenophobia. All
traceable to the original oppressive institutions of the American nation.
The problem is that when you allow yourself to be defined as a victim, you cannot succeed — by definition. You can never be in control of your own life. You cannot be happy.
If you are a victim, you give away all the power you have. And you become dependent on
representatives to intercede to address the grievances that you believe you face as a victim.
“As long as you can position yourself
as a member of a ‘victimized’
group, your actions will be justified
and vigorously defended.”

“Always blame someone else for
what thou doest — even so far as
to blame the entire society.”
