If Conservatives, Red-staters and those who believe in the holy directive to “multiply and replenish the Earth,” are patient, they will never again have to campaign against the Left, because Liberals are sprinting down the road to self-extinction.

Non-procreation has been a fashion trend among Liberals for a lot of years now, especially European Liberals. Just this week, the face of climate hypocrisy, Al Gore, called on women to save the planet by “stabilizing the population.” That is a euphemism the Chinese one-child bureaucrats would have loved. But of course it is just another float in the parade of anti-human ideas that ooze from the pens and mouths of the environmentalist Left.

First we had to cease using DDT because it made the eggshells of certain seabirds fragile. The result has been the needless deaths of millions of people each year, primarily in equatorial Africa, from mosquito-borne malaria. Then came abortion on demand. The human cost is staggering; upwards of 55 million dead humans in the United States alone since 1973. The “women’s liberation” movement derided the nuclear family and the children it produces and protects. Birthrates fell as women bought into that lie. Next in the parade came gay marriage. What could be more anti-procreation than fashioning a model for sex and marriage that is irrevocably sterile? The ideologies of the Left are fundamentally anti-human; National socialism, Facism, Marxism, Communism. If you haven’t noticed yet, all governments based on those ideologies kill lots and lots of people (Liberals included). And now we have arrived at the juncture where having babies is not an eco-friendly thing to do. Children and the human race be damned! ‘We don’t want to inconvenience the planet with the dreadful dumplings’ dastardly landfill-clogging diapers,’ goes the reasoning of the enviro-Left.

The modern Left is on the path to extinction. But this is not the natural selection of weak species dying out while the adaptable and vigorous species thrive and evolve. This is human-selected extiguishment of a species (although the Left is not, technically, a separate species). Oddly enough, they are selecting themselves to eternal banishment from the planet. A self-destructive movement using the scalpel of fecundity to kill itself in a single generation. This is fascinating from a theoretical standpoint. There are, of course, a lot of variables which go into reproduction and population dynamics. But generally speaking, the Left is trending itself out of existence.

Red-staters, Christians, and Conservatives are ensuring political domination simply by having more babies that Liberals and Blue-staters. Abortion rates are lower in Red states. Conservatives have higher birth rates than Liberals: 2.7 children on average in the Red state of Utah vs. 1.7 in very blue Vermont. Evangelical Christians and Mormons have nearly twice the birthrates of their secular neighbors. Perhaps it boils down to the fact that most Conservatives believe IN God, believe His word, and believe that He is SERIOUS when He gives commandments. Liberals answer first to political ideology then self (God is stuck some place where they can pull Him out if it is convenient), so “multiply and replenish” to them are a blasphemy against their overburdened Mother Earth.

I frankly feel bad for the broads and dipsticks that somehow feel their environmental awareness will compensate for the awful void of children that never were. Mother Earth will not like you any better just because you skip producing a batch of little eco-destroying nasties. Nature will eat you up in an eyeblink because it is dispassionate, and vast, and you can do nothing to impact the planet for long term good or ill. You are a flyspeck on the cosmic timeline. But your human heart may long for a family, especially when Al Gore and the Environmental movement are remembered only as a hoax. Your heart may break. Your Heavenly Father may be a little miffed.

But, hey. In just a few years Conservative candidates won’t have to do any fundraisers, stump speeches, or social media campaigns. There won’t be any Liberals left to run against.

    This is so funny! Liberals are dying out, yet you don’t seem to have noticed that minority births are for the first time more numerous than white ones. If you are so staunch about upping the birth rate for conservatives, I’m guessing you have better things to do than write factless things like this.

  • Marjorie Haun

    Are you saying that all minorities are, and always will be, Liberal? That’s a little presumptuous. Fact is that more and more Hispanics and Black Americans are identifying themselves as Conservative. The following Gallup survey includes all Americans.

  • Arch Conservative

    That’s the way things work in lefty moonbat land Marjorie.

    If you are a minority or a woman you are not allowed to be anything but a die hard leftist.

  • Glenn Contrarian

    Arch –

    Most minorities and most women CHOOSE to be liberal because they know that conservatives don’t look out for the best interests of minorities and liberals.

    For instance, look at Ron Paul who fantasizes that the Civil Rights Act wasn’t about civil rights, but about property. And who was it that worked hardest towards blocking the Equal Rights Amendment? Conservatives, of course.

    The world is FAR more liberal now than it was even thirty years ago…and the trend will continue. There will be ups and downs, setbacks and tragedies along the way, but (barring a worldwide catastrophe) liberal political philosophy will prevail in the end – all one needs for proof is to see that all first-world democracies have single-payer health care of one type or another…except for America, and we’ll get there eventually. One more wonderful bit of fact – the years since the end of the Rwandan genocide have been the most peaceful generation in human history…even given all the wars America’s been in! If you don’t think that’s true, then I defy you to find even ONE twenty-year period in human history that was as peaceful (relatively speaking, of course) as it is now.

    You’ll always convince yourself of what you and Marjorie are supporting if you take the short view, but if history is any guide (as it almost always is), we’ve got a very liberal future to look forward to. I know I’m looking forward to it!

  • Marjorie Haun

    Like I said in the article, “a lot of variables in reproduction and population dynamics.”

  • Leroy

    Oooooh! What a stirring paean to triumphalism! I haven’t felt this way since the last Leni Reifenstahl movie. Wow!

  • Marjorie Haun

    You are an Leni Reifenstahl fan I take it?

  • zingzing

    marjorie, what’s your reason for thinking that liberal parents necessarily make liberal kids? or conservative parents make conservative kids? i know of many cases where that is not the case.

  • zingzing

    “Liberals answer first to political ideology then self (God is stuck some place where they can pull Him out if it is convenient), so “multiply and replenish” to them are a blasphemy against their overburdened Mother Earth.”

    what a load of bullshit. your understanding of the liberal mind is based on you, not on liberals. that up there is completely ridiculous.

    “In just a few years Conservative candidates won’t have to do any fundraisers, stump speeches, or social media campaigns. There won’t be any Liberals left to run against.”

    you are just full of wishful thinking, aren’t you? tell me, which direction do you think history is marching in? less and less people are attending church. the 6th state in our nation (7 if you include dc) just legalized gay marriage. could you imagine that even a generation ago?

    you’re going to be very disappointed.

  • Clavos

    Fewer and fewer people…

  • Clavos

    Liberal or conservative, you will by damn speak (and write) the King’s English correctly, or I will see that you’re offed…

  • http://handyfilm.blogspot.com/ handyguy

    Maybe Marjorie wants to be Ann Coulter when she grows up. Actually, she’s not a bad writer, but the premise of the article is farcically ridiculous. Why do so many essays of this kind depend on counterfactual nastiness?

  • Marjorie Haun

    The premise is part parody, part demographic trend. I hope you have a sense of humor about social trends and politics. The trends are fact, the premise of absolute extinction is parody, just sayin’.

  • zingzing

    fair enough, clavos. that’s one of those rules of english i get wrong as often as not. maybe this time it’ll stick. but grammar has a way of going out the door when indignation gets in.

  • http://www.sanctification.wordpress.com Tom Shelton

    The basic premise of the article is valid but there is one thing that is not accounted for (unless I missed it). Liberals will indeed become extinct by their own choice if they did not take other steps to insure their survival. They have done so by instituting an indoctrination program through the government controlled schools in which they perpetuate their existence.

  • Glenn Contrarian

    Clavos –

    Actually, right now it’s the Queen’s English.

  • Glenn Contrarian

    Tom –

    Read comment #4. It’s not the liberals who have to worry about extinction….

  • Clavos

    Actually, right now it’s the Queen’s English.

    Not for me, it’s not. The language predates her and came into being when kings ruled.

  • Clavos

    Besides, Glenn, she’s not even English, she’s German on her patrilineal side, which is what counts for royalty.

  • zingzing

    “They have done so by instituting an indoctrination program through the government controlled schools in which they perpetuate their existence.”

    oh, the insidiousness of education. yes, secretly, we liberals decided to take over the schools. we did this very slowly, so as not to raise suspicions. through decades, nay, centuries! of work, we educated ourselves (as educated folk only respect educated folk) and, through a clever and most evil network, created liberal mathematics and sciences that only liberals could teach. literature and other arts, being already tilted our way, did not need much of a nudge, but all that goes against our predetermined values is stricken, which is why you’ve never read anything by a conservative. we stopped teaching history from the bible, as it isn’t a great source, and then we got rid of religious study, which, as you know, no longer exists. and we created an atmosphere at the university level wherein it is impossible to make up your own mind. our students march in lockstep, never having one moment to get up to any shenanigans. that is why our universities are known for their discipline. creativity and thoughts foreign to our indoctrination programs are stamped out immediately! and our students wear the uniform of the liberal elite, and never show up to class in shorts, even in summer, even in the south, where there are few universities. even our football teams are not allowed to thank god for their talents or victories. they praise their liberal fathers, and we declare it good and right that they do (under penalty of spanking, of course). out of our education camps come good liberal soldiers, and out of their loins come good liberal soldiers, and in the afterbirth of the fruit of said loins, we wallow and wait for what shall be, drinking in the new blood of our promised future liberal paradise.

    and of course, those that neglect to go to college (and therefore skip our indoctrination) never end up liberals. that’s the only way they could end up so. it’s a system, and we’ve got you cornered with america’s 30% college graduation rate.

  • zingzing

    “The language predates her and came into being when kings ruled.”

    but the beginnings of english were very much dominated by the german language (of the time at least). and then it was french that began to change english. and it certainly wasn’t the king that created modern english, it was london publishers. before the invention of the printing press, and the concentration of english publishers in london, many english dialects were mutually unintelligible. same might be said now, of course.

  • Clavos

    but the beginnings of english were very much dominated by the german language (of the time at least).

    No more so than by Roman Latin.

    it certainly wasn’t the king that created modern english, it was london publishers.

    …the king who…:-)

    It wasn’t the publishers, it was the writers and poets; first, Bede, Caedmon,et alia. Later, the Middle English poets, the best known (in modern times) of whom is Chaucer. But, in any case they all had a king, not a queen, over them.

  • Clavos

    Hence the origin of the expression, “the King’s English.”

    Which was my original point.

  • Clavos

    @#20 (albeit belatedly):

    You can be quite the penman yourself, zing, that was a decent parody.

  • zingzing

    yes, “the king who.” fine again. i’m about to walk down to miami and start slitting throats. but i won’t. it’s too far. besides, i don’t consider kings to be people, just far off objects that justify derision.

    but i’ll say it was the publishers. what they were publishing certainly had a role to play, but the fact that the written language was being published in a particular place with a particular set of rules (and letters) had vast influence. middle english (and chaucer) would have been unaffected by this (and although he is understandable, i doubt you could speak his language in today’s society if you wished to be understood). modern english (or early modern english, as it is known,) was a product of standardization not through any concerted effort, but through the practicalities of the time. and yes, they may have had a king over them, but if a king supervised technology and language, i’d be surprised. that it was a he or a she or anything at all is a technicality. machines and type setters had as much to do with it as anything.

    as for #20, if conservatives want a more balanced academia, that’s on them. most academics are more interested in furthering their field rather than a political agenda, and if you’re a conservative and you want to get into education and you’ve got something to offer, fucking offer it. don’t be such defeatists. your myth will only self-perpetuate if you don’t cut it the fuck out.

    look at the media. fox news disproves the myth. sarah palin talks about the “lame stream media” (thank god she’s not teaching english, because that play on words is just awful), but look where she is… on the highest rating news media channel in america. she is the main stream. she sits right in it and can’t feel the current.

    it’s the same thing in education, except there’s little money in it. which, of course, may be why there’s such small conservative interest. or maybe it’s because when people are paid to think, they rarely end up conservative. maybe.

  • zingzing

    i’m waiting for it. p5l2w1.

  • Clavos

    most academics are more interested in furthering their field rather than a political agenda

    Puleeze. If it’s left, it’s taught as gospel; if it’s right, it’s derided.

    A.G.E.N.D.A.

  • Clavos

    Except for one place (that I’m familiar with; — there may be others): Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, MI.

    A bastion of freedom in an otherwise repressive field.

    A college which goes through enormous efforts to keep itself free of the taint of federal money so it doesn’t have to obey federal dicta.

  • zingzing

    “Puleeze. If it’s left, it’s taught as gospel; if it’s right, it’s derided.”

    did you go to college? i’m assuming you did. in your physics classes, how much politics came into play? in your english classes, i’ll ask the same.

    how much did politics really play at all in your college classes?

  • zingzing

    what about st. johns in annapolis? they teach their stuff through “the classics.”

    and what makes hillsdale such a bastion of freedom? is it that they teach from a conservative perspective (if indeed they do)? is that any better in the end? or is it just more to your liking?

    if it is just more to your liking, how does that qualify as “freedom?” 500 words or less, due tuesday.

  • zingzing

    and do you think politics invades everything? or is literature literature, science science and math math sometimes? a vast majority of the time, politics means very little.

    i don’t see how you could stand on another political side than me when it comes to, say, huckleberry finn. 150 years ago, there could have been a political divide between two people, but nowadays? come on. it brings up political issues, but i’d think we’re all on the same page now.

    the internal matter of stars? where’s the politics there? if there are any, would you disagree?

    how the heart pumps, prohibition, bottled water and its affect upon business, the myth of atlantis, shakespeare’s sonnets–where’s the politics?

    find a political agenda if you want. i see no reason to bring that shit into it, and, in my experience, no professor does either.

    so where’s your conspiracy?

  • Glenn Contrarian

    Clavos –

    Puleeze. If it’s left, it’s taught as gospel; if it’s right, it’s derided.

    You’ve obviously never felt the drive to teach, the joy a teacher feels when the student has that “aha” moment.

    All you’re doing is painting teachers with a broad brush…and never once questioning your own conservative dogma that maybe, just maybe teachers – like most other people who enjoy careers providing a VITAL service – really do try to do their jobs the very best they can.

    But no – to even think such a thing, that’s HERESY to the Right! Why, whoever heard of someone working for the government who actually strove to maintain professional and ethical standards? Teachers are all part of that VAST left-wing conspiracy, and like all government workers (except for the military who must be worshiped by all Right-thinking citizens) teachers must be looked down upon and paid a pittance and forced to find second jobs in order to feed and shelter their families!

    Oh, grow up, willya, Clavos!

  • Clavos

    whoever heard of someone working for the government who actually strove to maintain professional and ethical standards?

    Who indeed, Glenn, who indeed?

    Teachers are all part of that VAST left-wing conspiracy…

    Actually, the original version of that remark, coined by a leftie, Hillary Rodham Clinton, while defending her husband during the Lewinsky scandal, was, “The vast right wing conspiracy.”

    Do I think all teachers are part of a conspiracy? No. Are they for the most part, lefties? Unquestionably, 90+% of ‘em are — to the degree that it is even difficult for a right winger to get and keep a teaching job at any level in this country these days.

    Like Hollywood.

  • Clavos

    All you’re doing is painting teachers with a broad brush…and never once questioning your own conservative dogma that maybe, just maybe teachers – like most other people who enjoy careers providing a VITAL service – really do try to do their jobs the very best they can.

    Glenn you are more than tiresome. you always, always, always, attempt to impute more into my comments here than I have said, or even implied.

    Knock it the fuck off.

    I didn’t say a word about whether or not teachers are trying “to do their jobs the very best they can.”

    That’s for another discussion, and is unrelated to their political viewpoint.

  • Glenn Contrarian

    Clavos –

    You’re angry about me “imputing” more into your comments than you intend, but look at this comment:

    Do I think all teachers are part of a conspiracy? No. Are they for the most part, lefties? Unquestionably, 90+% of ‘em are — to the degree that it is even difficult for a right winger to get and keep a teaching job at any level in this country these days.

    But when zing RIGHTLY said:

    most academics are more interested in furthering their field rather than a political agenda

    What did you do? “pu-leeze”.

    Clavos – if you get a right-winger who doesn’t try to institute prayer in the classroom, doesn’t try to push “intelligent design”, doesn’t try to say that creationism should be taught on equal footing to evolution, doesn’t try to pretend that the Civil Rights Act wasn’t about civil rights, tries to claim that homosexuality is all a choice and a sin against God and has nothing to do with actual biology, who think that anthropogenic global warming is a myth when the VAST majority of those scientists best qualified to speak on the matter know better (and publish MORE solid evidence every week!)…

    …if he or she doesn’t insert some of the flat-out stupidity that the Right has been pushing over the past several years, he or she would be welcome with open arms!

    But it’s hard to give righties much credit when they’ve got politicians who spout some of the insane crap I listed in the previous paragraph. And Ms. Palin with her wild revisions of history doesn’t help!

    Clavos, the Right has been on an anti-intellectual tear for decades: anti-evolution, anti-LGBT, anti-AGW (which includes you), anti-civil-rights, anti-abortion, you name it! When the Right has been so Looney-Tuned for so long, how can you possibly expect those in academia to welcome them with open arms!

    When your politicians start talking mainstream sense instead of wedge-issue and anti-education nonsense, righties will be welcomed…but not before.

  • zingzing

    “Are they for the most part, lefties? Unquestionably, 90+% of ‘em are — to the degree that it is even difficult for a right winger to get and keep a teaching job at any level in this country these days.”

    most people don’t give a shit about politics at the end of the day. and that last bit is some ridiculous, conspiracy theory nonsense. and not even close to true. when’s the last time you went to school, for god’s sake?

  • Baronius

    Zing – A fair qualification. A lot of people don’t care about politics, but most everyone cares about ideology. That’s the word we should be using.

  • zingzing

    “most everyone cares about ideology.”

    do they? in public schools, teachers care about standardized test scores, not ideologies. i couldn’t begin to fathom the political or ideological slants of a great majority of my teachers. could you?

    and i somehow made it all the way to college with pretty much zero interest in politics. (i hated bill clinton because i couldn’t stand the sound of his voice.) so i never got clavos’ “gospel of the left.” how could that be, if it’s not so much taught as preached? i’m a pretty smart guy. i know a sermon when i hear it.

  • http://handyfilm.blogspot.com/ handyguy

    It’s the standard conservative worldview, zing: paranoia. “Everyone’s against poor, poor pitiful us. The left has all the advantages.”

    It’s been repeated so often that even some non-conservatives think it’s true. But the right-wing media megaphone has been so loud and omnipresent during the last 3 decades, it’s liberals who have a right to feel assaulted.

  • Baronius

    Handy, don’t put words into my mouth.

    Would you two agree that everyone thinks about rights and responsibilities? Rights and responsibilities deal with how we see ourselves in relation to the world, so they’re definitely a matter of ideology, right, left, or center. It’s not paranoid to notice that.

  • zingzing

    “Would you two agree that everyone thinks about rights and responsibilities?”

    certainly not in those terms. you speak from an obvious position of privilege. some people (a great number of them, actually), are too busy putting food on the table, keeping a job and taking care of their kids to consider their political ideology. many teachers would fall into that category.

    how long has it been since you had to worry about how you were going to make the rent or buy dinner? have you ever truly known it?

    demonizing teachers as literal liberal threats to your children is a damn silly thing. it makes conservatism seem like an ideology of paranoia, suspicion and fear. this attack on education and intellectuals is ridiculous.

  • Baronius

    The worse your circumstances, the more you put your ideology in concrete terms. A little pocket money lets you ask the same questions in a more general way, with maybe less panic in your voice, but they are the same questions.

  • Baronius

    Or are we having one of those classic debates where we’re not even talking about the same thing? I’m not contending that all teachers are liberal ideologues; someone else said that further upthread. I’m saying that ideology – how we view the world – affect nearly everyone’s decision-making. A person who devotes himself to teaching strangers probably has a strong set of beliefs behind that decision, left, right, or center.

  • http://takeitorleaveit.typepad.com/an roger nowosielski

    teaching strangers?

    An odd use to characterize the teacher-student nexus.

  • zingzing

    “Or are we having one of those classic debates where we’re not even talking about the same thing?”

    that’s possible…

    “A person who devotes himself to teaching strangers probably has a strong set of beliefs behind that decision, left, right, or center.”

    but it’s not necessarily true that they actively attempt to instill those beliefs in their students. one of the major things teachers try to teach is critical thinking and thinking for one’s self.

  • http://tmackorg.com/ Tommy Mack

    This article reminds me of conservative President Richard Nixon who said, “That’s just plain poppycock.”

    Tommy

  • Baronius

    Hey, Rog. Hope you’re doing well.

  • Clavos

    gospel of the left

    I didn’t say that; don’t quote me falsely, zing, it makes you into a liar, like some others on these threads.

  • Clavos

    What I said was, “It’s taught as gospel…”

  • Clavos

    one of the major things teachers try to teach is critical thinking and thinking for one’s self.

    and they even teach you how to do it…

  • Dan

    This article, although intended as semi-satirical, hits on a lot of observational truth that would make for more interesting discussion than this tired tail chasing about leftist indoctrination in academia.

    What makes some conservatives think that pathologically indoctrinated Alinskyites even care about objective reality? They don’t believe in it.

  • Clavos

    Point taken, Dan…

  • zingzing

    clavos: “If it’s left, it’s taught as gospel…”

    clavos: “I didn’t say that; don’t quote me falsely, zing, it makes you into a liar, like some others on these threads.”

    how else do you want me to take it? really. so i paraphrased, but you shouldn’t take it so harshly when i put your words back into your mouth. and you know that there’s little distance between what you and i said. if you want to explain the difference, go ahead. please.

    “and they even teach you how to do it…”

    how do you do it? how do i see through your words and predict that you’re posturing? my parents certainly had something to do with it, as did my innate intelligence, but certainly, my teachers helped me to develop this ability to question as well. you need someone outside the family and yourself to make you question your family and yourself.

  • zingzing

    and i’m not a liar (in this instance). so suck it up, clavos. either stand behind your words or don’t. i respect you as a person, but you’ll get no guilt from me on this. i’m certainly not in the wrong.

  • http://cinemasentries.com/ El Bicho

    “The following Gallup survey includes all Americans.”

    Really? I didn’t take part in it. And looking at the numbers the vast majority didn’t either. Also, I didn’t notice a breakdown by race or ethnicity on the page so not sure why you created the link as it doesn’t support your position. Plus, it doesn’t even take into account that how people self-identify is not necessarily how they vote.

  • Clavos

    …my teachers helped me to develop this ability to question as well.

    As did mine. We question different entities, you and I.

  • Glenn Contrarian

    So Clavos – why don’t you question the propaganda your own side feeds you?

  • Clavos

    I farm that out to you lefties, Glenn. You do a much better job than I could; you’re all smarter than I.
