The Left Can't See

Yesterday commenter Mark A reposted a link to a Youtube review of two movies, titled The Left Can't See. The Right Can't Speak. The reviewer offers an "analysis of the two films 'Birdbox' and 'A Quiet Place', and what both movies are saying about the current political and cultural crisis in America." He makes what I believe are compelling points. In the process the review ends up being a critique of the Left's inability to see other Americans--including, it seems, themselves--except as ideologized caricatures of real people. The Right, on the other hand, as represented in 'A Quiet Place', sees normal human life, especially normal family life, as existentially threatened. Check it out, if you haven't. It's 38 minutes long.

This morning I read Don Surber's terrific write-up of an interview of Dem Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, who represents Ohio's 9th congressional district. Let me just say up front, don't waste on Bernie Sis Marcy. That's not the point here. However, I highly recommend that you read Surber's account,

Dems represent 19 of the 20 richest congressional districts

in light of the movie review linked above. Ignore Surber's absurd claims that Kaptur is "blue collar" like her constituents

"She fears that her party is increasingly dominated by members representing affluent districts — and that the social mores of rich coastal cities are sidelining kitchen-table economic concerns."

She's a politician and she got her 95% NARAL rating by catering to "the social mores of rich coastal cities," not those of working class Americans who value traditional family life, and not by bitterly clinging to her Polish Catholic upbringing. Still, this passage speaks loud and clear about Dem attitudes even to some of their own:

The Hill reported, "A Democratic colleague of Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) recently suggested a simple solution to the economic problems afflicting the industrial Midwest.

" 'Well, Congresswoman Kaptur, the answer is: Leave,' Kaptur says she was told by the Democratic member, whom she declined to name.

"Kaptur, whose district includes her hometown of Toledo, where she grew up the daughter of a union organizer, was appalled.

" 'They just can’t understand,' she told The Hill. 'They can’t understand a family that sticks together because that’s what they have. Their loved ones are what they have, their little town, their home, as humble as it is — that’s what they have. Respect it. It was so insensitive.'

It fits perfectly with the Youtube review. The Left can't see those people in Toledo--not as real people. And it's coming through loud and clear, one Executive Decree after another.


  1. "Well, Congresswoman Kaptur, the answer is: Leave"

    Hmm, in light of mass migration from blue states to red states in the US, and turning them purple, maybe this is what the Bolsheviks want?

    Stalin had forcefully moved masses to Syberia and other places in USSR, to change demographics or exploit resources.

    1. We have no Siberia....well, if you don't count Minnesota.


  2. What an insightful movie review. I am always amazed that people can capture the zeitgeist of an era in works of art like this when it is so hard to articulate in a logical fashion. One movie captures the images of people compelled to destroy their own civilization through blindness and willing self destruction, and the other the consequences of it.

    1. While I believe the Left is guilty of many incorrect and dangerous ideologies which threaten to destroy the American Experiment, perhaps the worst are the panoply of policies and actions which act to undermine and destroy the American family.

      The overwhelming cacophony of Leftist policies in respect of income redistribution, welfare and child support rights and affirmative action and pro-choice rights and teachers' unions and endemic over-regulation and charges of systemic racism might sound good (to them) but they threaten to destroy our essential human nature and organizational foundation.

      Without a strong and resilient nuclear family structure in this country to build upon we are nothing.

    2. And you can see the Globalist agenda in that regard from the Soros support for 'BLM' (nominated for a Nobel), an avowedly 'Queer Affirming' organization. Their 'educational' materials used in African American schools and their other info makes explicit that they want to do away with patriarchy and the nuclear family of the West. It's truly revolutionary, and is openly embraced by the Left. This shows the weakness of Democracy--that We The People widely don't bother being informed by reliable sources of information. A republic if you can keep it, and you can't keep it with an ignorant electorate.
