How the left views conservatives. In the words of Melinda Byerley, MBA and founder of Timeshare CMO, a Silicon Valley-based tech start-up…
Byerley says that the first thing those in middle America need to realize is that “no educated person wants to live in a shithole with stupid people.” Particularly, in a “shithole” filled with people who are “violent, racist, and/or misogynistic.” In Byerley’s opinion, “big corporations,” do not consider moving to the heart of America because “those towns have nothing going for them.”
These are the people who preach diversity and tolerance.
One Silicon Valley executive had a few choice words to describe Americans living in the heart of the nation, and they were not flattering. Melinda Byerley, MBA and founder of Timeshare CMO, a Silicon Valley-based tech start-up, tweeted out Saturday afternoon describing what middle America could do to “get more jobs in their area.”
Good article by Andrew Klavan in City Journal describing how conservative voices are silenced.
No person of importance on the right seeks to silence anyone on the left. The Left, on the other hand, is broadly committed to ostracizing, blacklisting, and even criminalizing right-wing speech.
So we stay polite and silent.
Nothing scandalizes a leftist like the truth. Point out that women and men are different, that black Americans commit a disproportionate amount of violent crime, that most terrorist acts are committed by Muslims, and the Left leaps to its collective feet in openmouthed shock, like Margaret Dumont after a Groucho Marx wisecrack.
Interesting video by J.J. McCullough about his two most controversial articles. One points out official bilingualism means that the 17% of Canadians who are bilingual hold all of the top spots in government institutions. As these are mostly left wingers from Quebec it has the net effect of moving Canadian culture to the left of its overall population. Pointing this out is considered very controversial which is why you never hear this truth spoken.
Bilingualism as requirement for top Canadian government jobs must be abolished if our culture is ever to reflect Canadians as a whole.
In a good article on political leadership by MP Michelle Rempel in Macleans, she hits upon one of the big reasons why our culture has moved to the left.
First, the size and scope of government in Canada exponentially expanded around the time of the world wars. Since then, for better and worse, government has grown to touch virtually every aspect of a Canadian’s life.
My generation has grown up in a system in which government is so ubiquitous that many of us rarely think to question the role of government. We’ve developed a tendency to default to accepting the existence of the state across every area of our lives, and to look to the state as the solution to most public-policy issues.
This has led to a widening gulf between the size of the government and our individual ability and desire to scrutinize every aspect of it, and in turn, to scrutinize the people who we entrust with leading it.
When the government is automatically presumed to be responsible for every problem, its easier to be a victim than to take responsibility for ones own condition. Finding positive ways to reduce the size and scope of government is critical creating a more conservative culture.
This week, the prospect of an Oprah Winfrey presidential candidacy sparked a discussion about whether or not celebrities are automatically qualified to lead a government, on the basis of their celebrity alone. Praise the heavens. This dialogue is sorely needed, and not just in the United States. It affects us here too.
In most public places, coming out as a Conservative takes more courage announcing that you are gay.
Coming Out As A Republican To My Democrat Family Went Worse Than Coming Out Gay: I reached my threshold where no amount of hypothetical Republican bigotry or greed could approach the magnitude of hypocrisy, corruption, or criminality I saw rotting Democrats.
