The STD Known As ‘Sneaky Stealth Socialism’, or Herpies-M

15 December 2010 @ 14:46

A few days ago, I wrote about The Cancer Known As ‘Stealth Socialism’ , which is the kind of Leftism practiced by people like Barack Hussein Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi that involves working within the American System in order to destroy it.

There is another flavor of Progressivism that exists in this country, one that is less of an threat, but nevertheless a danger. I speak of the kind that likes to call itself ‘The Middle’ and/or ‘Independent’ and/or ‘Moderate’. These are the people who claim to despise and despair and nearly faint over the heated back-and-forth between the Left and the Right. They cock their heads, straighten their ties, and absolutely love to see themselves as the exemplars of the ‘Way Of The Bipartisan Warrior’ [/oxymoron]. Whenever words like ‘Socialist’, ‘Communist’ or ‘Nihilist’ are spoken by the Right, these self-proclaimed arbiters of all that is Honest, Decent, and True get an attack of The Vapors, then head-off to fret and whine in seminars and on TV about the ‘decline in civility’, ‘the loss of civility’, and ‘the polarization’ in politics.

These Vapid Valkyries are determined to wage a relentless campaign against what they see as the destructive bickering between the Left and the Right – in other words, in the normal process of a healthy free society.

Trouble is, all of the members of this Elite Walking Miasma are mild Leftists. While certainly not as committed to the destruction of the institutions of America as are the Stealth Socialists, they believe in a slow transformation of this country into a permanent welfare state along the lines of what Bismark* envisioned – a kinder, gentler Progressivism, if you will. They have ‘accepted’ the inevitability of a big government with its Vishnu-like multiple hands reaching into every aspect of our lives. However, they want to see it managed with a light touch, but efficiently. Perhaps the Happy Face should be their symbol, instead of the one they stole.

Seeing us like Edward G. Robinson’s character in Soylent Green, the Moderates want us to slide ever so peacefully into our chains as they show us pretty pictures of the long gone days when the Earth was green and untouched, and bipartisanship ruled the world.

Ran, proprietor of Si Vis Pacem, understands:

What “No Labels” is – or better, will be – is gentle-left-turn. With not much ditch remaining, it won’t take a whole lot of left-turn to put America entirely off of Liberty’s road. The problem with the Brand is consumer awareness… It’s a right-turn that’s needed. The real argument is how far right.

Unlike the Stealth Socialists who act like a cancer in the body politic, these Sneaky Stealth Socialists are more like a strain of Herpes, raging to life every once in a while in the form of irritating sores, then going away – but, always sure to outbreak again.

In their shining wisdom, these Moderate Middlers have joined together to form No Labels, which [as I wrote on 06 December, quoting Stanley Kurtz] ‘seeks to ‘to combat the “hyper-polarization” of American political debate by “calling out” politicians, media personalities, and opinion leaders who “recklessly demonize” opponents’’.

Many on the Right smell a dead rat…and they’re right.

Stacy McCain looks into the people behind this effort, their unwillingness to name their financial supporters, and makes this spot-on observation:

This isn’t a “movement.” That would require not only an identifiable activist constituency but also some clear sense of where it is they intend to “move.”
No, this is inertia. This is status quo-ism, a panic reaction to a populist insurgency, a desperate bid for relevance by an establishmentarian elite flying a false flag of bipartisanship, since their bogus “movement” is actually bipartisan in name only….

No Labels certainly is all that Stacy claims it is, but we must never forget that it is also Socialism with a smile on it’s face that conceals an evil in it’s heart.

Their are many, many things that need to be done to try and save The American Experiment – this group of Misfit Middling Milksop Milquetoasts is not one of them. As Paco puts it:

…What we need is not "No Labels", but "Truth in Labeling".

That’s the cure.

    Yes – exactly. And let’s keep mindful the command “Hard to Starboard!” came *too late* for the Titanic.

    Well, it is a “movement”, though in a stale diaper sort of way. Thanks for the kind link and comment, Bob. Hey… Join the No Bal Labels logo contest!

    This is part of of one of the comments to a post by TL Davis the commenter is Radiowave.
    “This is because our present state was not caused by election, but rather the erosion of our knowledge of personal property, and liberty. Temporary dissolution of the body itself is the proper cure, and must precede elections. A frog’s lack of knowledge is more critical to the issue of getting boiled than is the fact of the pot and water, and a frog’s simmering rage may save him from simmering with sage.”

    Here’s a link to TL’s other site it might not be the answer but it points us in the right direction.

    Liberty: Wasn’t that Bloomy playing the Captain in the James Cameron film?

    Ran: All of these Misfit Middling Milksop Milquetoasts should be consigned to the Bowels of Hell.

    Adobe: The pot called the kettle black and was branded a raaaaacist.

    Matt: You’re very welcome and thank you for the kind words.
