Are You On the Right Side of History, or the Wrong Side?

One thing we can be proud of as progressives, is that we are on the right side of history. In the present, things often seem overwhelming and difficult. Sometimes we seem outnumbered and outgunned by the alt right on internet platforms like YouTube, and other times we struggle to get our point of view across when confronted by know-it-all libertarians. But the important thing is, when all is said and done many years after we are dead, our children and grandchildren will look back at what we did, and say: “wow, they were really courageous, and I’m so thankful for the sacrifices they made for us”.

When Hitler came to power, many prominent politicians in the West supported him and thought he was a great leader – they thought that they were on the right side of history. But all these years later, and we now know that being a Nazi is the worst thing you can be, far more so than a communist, which is actually a good thing to be. In the days of slavery, Americans and Europeans were overwhelmingly in favor of it, and the abolitionists were mocked, laughed at and derided. Today however, they are lauded as heroes, and given credit for one of the greatest leaps forward in human progress.

The alt right needs to take a step back and think about how they will be viewed by generations to come. If they fail to silence the accredited media and our progressive education system, they will undoubtedly be remembered as the Nazis of the 21st century. Is that really how you want to be remembered? Do you really want to be on the wrong side of history? The alt right is risking its entire legacy by discussing issues that have long been taboo, like genetic differences between the races that aren’t positive for people of color. Many of the things they talk about seem to be backed up by science and data, but think of where this discussion leads. If we open a can of worms like this, we may end up with gas chambers and civil war! Topics like race and genetics are taboo for a reason, except when we are talking about the genetic superiority of people of color over whites.

Progressives can take pride in the fact that they are following the zeitgeist of empowerment and liberation. We are continuing the work of the abolitionists by advocating for every victim group we can think of, creating new victim groups, and unifying them all against white males through intersectionality. Together, we will create a true egalitarian society in the West, in which white people are a tiny, despised minority, the proletariat can collect a living wage, and all industries are nationalized under a trustworthy government (especially the important ones that are too important to leave to the free market). Country living will be banned, along with hunting and fishing, and everyone will be forced to live in compact smart cites where every aspect of our lives is monitored and policed to keep us safe and happy. This is the vision we are creating every day with our activism, and when our children (preferably adopted children of color) look back at us from their minimalist apartments, overlooking a sea of wind farms and solar panels, they will smile and think to themselves, “wow, those progressives really were on the right side of history”.

Here’s a few quotes from the late greta – Fidel Castro

They talk about the failure of socialism but where is the success of capitalism in Africa, Asia and Latin America?
I find capitalism repugnant. It is filthy, it is gross, it is alienating… because it causes war, hypocrisy and competition.
The revolution is a dictatorship of the exploited against the exploiters.
I think that a man should not live beyond the age when he begins to deteriorate, when the flame that lighted the brightest moment of his life has weakened.
Men do not shape destiny, Destiny produces the man for the hour.
Capitalism is using its money; we socialists throw it away.
The revenues of Cuban state-run companies are used exclusively for the benefit of the people, to whom they belong.

Oh wow MDB 🙂 the future is so bright for us progressives – just today I got a really trendy RFID chip implanted in my hand so I can swipe and go. No more waiting around for filthy coin change – yay.

Sexually I’ve been on the non-racist right side of history since I was 14 – it’s something I’m very proud of.

My friend said this: “Hitler is in the White House and 70% of the country is cool with it.” Scary indeed.

richandrenee

Yes – scary indeed John. We were just about to write an article about this very frightening statistic when Renée called to say that we have once again been let down by a white cis male at the restaurant and that I’ll have to come in and wash dishes.

Hateful white males want to sabotage our vegan dream!

There could be a vegan restaurant called Slop n’ Plop! We serve slop (soups, smoothies, etc), and in the back there’s a composting toilet where you can drop a plop.
Darling, where do you want to eat?
Well, I am hungry but too lazy to chew, plus I have to shit, so, Slop n’ Plop.

A cautionary note, John. My brother is an architect who designs composting toilets. He says the problem with that kind of toilet is they have a tendency to explode if not installed correctly. There’s a shitload of alt-right cowboy builders out there willing to make a dime cutting corners. Don’t say you haven’t been warned. Sometimes the shit really does hit the fan!!

The problem is capitalism, and how particular private individuals are allowed to waste exorbitant amounts of resources.

Great idea JS. My friend opened a restaurant called “Burnt Offerings”, and another one called “Come and Get IT” the slogan for both restaurants was “See if can Eat IT”, genius!!!

Now that the Russians have abandoned communism we can clearly see that they are now on the wrong side of history. Just because they didn’t do it right the first time doesn’t mean they should give up and join the forces of evil and work to get the new Hitler elected in the United States.

Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters, and Wasserman-Schultz: A modern-day whirlwind of zeitgeist. Am I missing any one?

History is like genders. Just a state of mind so thus easily changed. Look at how we are re writing history now.
Those alt-right crazies keep trying to change history by saying that Jim Crow and KKK were from the democratic party and have fake thinks like a klanbake all over the internet. If this was true, why are so many POC Democrats???

So no matter which side I am on, as long as we win, we can write the history books any way we want.

Jewish average IQ of 115 is 8 points higher than the generally accepted IQ of their closest rivals—Northeast Asians—and approximately 40% higher than the global average IQ of 79.1 calculated by Richard Lynn and Tatu Vanhanen in IQ and Global Inequity.

This is why Anon hates Jews. They are much smarter than xer

Reversion to mean has since occurred…Ron Unz did some work on this cross referencing NMSQT rolls.

The 115 was Ashkenazim, fwiw.

Nothing demonstrated jewish intellectual superiority better than CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Celebrity Jeopardy

in US but not in Israel

and now that I think abt it – US data is also convincing

http://www.unz.com/isteve/episcopalians-v-jews-on-iq/

Catch is that for some reason Episcopalians are the smartest period (top table is from circa 2007, bottom is 1990)

ashkenazim are apparently european-origin. Hmmmm must have been a tribe that wasn’t in the Bible.

Genetically Askenazi are Middle Eastern/European about 50/50

All of the Ashkenazi Jews alive today can trace their roots to a group of about 330 people who lived 600 to 800 years ago.

this was a simply EXCELLENT article

The “Jewish Side” is the right side. Jews are overwhelmingly progressive.

If drinking water in most places in America have significant traces prescription drugs, antibiotics, anti-depressant drugs, then flush toilets, and waste treatment plants are not an answer for every country under the sun – http://hosted.ap.org/specials/interactives/pharmawater_site/day1_01.html.
Drinking water is an issue, but food produced from farms that use bio-sludge as fertilizer is going to be much worse – http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2009/04/sludge-happens/

Nature can handle waste much better than humans, and it pays to use nature to do the work.
May be Indians know something the Americans don’t? Composting toilets are a good idea, especially in rural areas.

Great article and I owe you a massive debt of gratitude. As a progressive I am becoming saturated with right wing, fascist facts that started to give me doubts about our cause. Looting and burning Capitalist small shops in my neighbourhood was becoming tiresome. I know someone has to do it but when the police don’t even pretend to care it all becomes a chore. Thanks to your article I have a renewed vigour for the cause. I should adopt more inspiration from our great oppressed comrades such as J K Rowling, Russell Brand and Angelina.
These giants of Socialism will not rest until every worker has a Syrian Refugee in every room whilst denying themselves that honour. Meanwhile they infiltrate the wealthy, probably so they can point them out come the Peoples Revolution?
I would want my children to know I fought for Identity Politics if it were not for the fact that I now identify as a barren lesbian and have to deny fathering those 10 kids or suffer destroying my cognitive dissonance.
Vive la revolution comrades.

Viva la revolucion!
