The Logical Fallacies at the Heart of the Left

Sharing is Caring!

by Mark Angelides

Good politics is about good arguments that lead to both (or all) sides reaching a compromise they can all live with. It is the process that allows us to not be led by demagogues and achieves the (if not grandest) result that benefits the most people. But what happens when arguments are made that are so flawed, and so false, that they should be rejected out of hand? And what happens when they are not?
Regardless one’s position on most areas of political discourse, the rational mind will likely find something of merit in the opposition argument.  Yet more and more, the arguments being proffered are failing even basic tests of logic. And what is worse, is that both sides are accepting these as actual arguments without even trying to set the record straight.

Immigration

All countries and cultures are equal: This is a popular trope played out that is met with the standard cries of racism if anyone dares to dispute the sacred Shibboleth. But are they? A culture is something that is built up overtime and includes views that are shared by the majority of that society’s members.
Consider countries that stone women to death for being raped? Consider countries that execute or imprison homosexuals? Consider those that still practice slavery even today? Are they equal with Western societies? Is their “Purity of spirit” something we in the “decadent” West should aspire to?
There is no mass-migration of people from Western societies to poorer, third world nations. Very few people are illegally entering third world countries from first world countries in the hopes that they will be able to settle down there and raise families. Why is this? Could it be that people from these third world countries are willing to admit something the vacuous left is not: That some countries and cultures are better than others!

Femenism

Men and women are the same: It is only in very regressive countries (see above) that people don’t wish for all folks to have exactly the same rights and opportunities. And feminism certainly had its place in the movement to grant the long-overdue equal status women deserve. But how does this fit in with the Trans debate? And why is no one questioning the very apparent paradox?
If men and women are exactly the same, why would someone see themselves as Trans? If all it takes is to identify as something else, then why is necessary for some to undergo surgery and hormone treatments. Will the modern feminists admit that there are clear biological and mental differences between males and females, and as such, SHOULD be treated differently? Or are the new-wave feminists willing to admit that a Trans woman is not, in fact, a woman?
Only one of these positions can be true. This is not to say that anyone should be treated with less compassion, nor does it make them less of a human deserving of respect, but it does mean we need, for everyone’s sake, not to get science confused with ideology.

Welfare

Welfare is the compassionate thing to do: Is it? Since the founding of the welfare system, are minority groups in America better off or worse off?
We all need to be very honest that welfare should ONLY be there for emergency measures. The longer someone is on welfare, the less likely they are to come off it. It is by providing jobs, opportunity and training that people will make a better life for their family. Welfare is not doing as much good as the left claim.
Until we can all admit that welfare is a trap designed to keep poor Americans voting Democrat, we can never, as a whole society, move forward.
The saddest part of all of this is that elected representatives are happily agreeing to the arguments being framed. They are false arguments that provide no benefit other than an impoverished lower class and a divided electorate intent on applying identity politics.

  1. Feminism is a cancer festering and destroying the body it came out of. And the hearts of the inferior scum that perpetuate it and all other cultural marxist schemes

  2. name calling is the most intellectual argument anymore, same tripe as the Zionist, when you are WRONG and can’t TALK your way OUT , just call everyone SICK NAMES instead of any legitimate debate that MIGHT OUT your GUILT!!!
    aka:”IF people think you are stupid, then stay silent: why speak and remove all doubt.”

  3. Why is it perfectly normal if a man pretends to be a woman (or vice versa) and anyone calling them out for what they really are is committing a hate crime, but if I pretend I’m a dog (and I can bark really well…) and stop paying taxes (because that’s not what dogs do), I go to jail?
    The IRS should be arrested for that hate crime.

  4. Want welfare ‘reform’?
    Okay. If you take welfare from a certain level of government, you do not get to vote for that level of government.
    You do have a right to vote, but you do not have a right to welfare. If you decide to take welfare, you are also deciding to forfeit your right to vote for this election cycle {be it 1/2/4 years}

  5. Identifying logical fallacies is important but is largely ineffectual when your opponents lack the sincerity to find truth and are only interested in whatever method will bring them power.
    Pointing out a fallacy doesn’t work when your opponent says that whatever comes out of your mouth is oppressive by definition. This is one of many tricks of the totalitarians who are trying to destroy our society. Their motto is “whatever works”. They are willing to act completely amorally in order to achieve their goals. They lack a conscience, i.e. they are psychopathic. We need to stop pointing out the logical fallacies bc they aren’t going to stop if we can just convince them. We need to realize that this is an all-out war for our humanity and start to defend ourselves like we value our humanity AT ALL COSTS!

  6. Q “There is no mass-migration of people from Western societies to poorer, third world nations.” en-q.
