Victor Davis Hanson, classicist, military and agricultural historian, political commentator discusses a new inquisition by the left.
I would call it political bullying and savagery but the left will accept only victory. They are True Believer intolerant of anyone who might disagree. They believe conservatives or anyone who disagrees with their canon are evil and must be destroyed.
Here he talks about the new bullies, the enviro/green bullies, but he also discusses how bullying is now the style and the forte of the left and so there are sex and lifestyle bullies, class warfare bullies, anti patriot anti religious bullies, in fact if there is a political difference on anything the bullying nature of the left comes out.
What’s more important, they change the language and are successful in accusing their opponents of intolerance partially because they control the chattering class and the media. Thus the accusations fly even when they come from the mouths of the worst offenders.
You don’t agree with them–expect to be attacked, intimidated, destroyed if they can get it done.
Trouble is that conservatives are not temperamentally suited to this new Alinskyite fanatic warfare to the death, energized by envy and hate.
Victor may be too late. See how they savage their enemies and get away with it. Why would they be so successful in their vilification of the Tea Party, composed of well-behaved people concerned about excess government.
