A Brief Guide to Leftist Destruction

Dennis Prager: “The left only destroys; does not build anything”

To understand the modern world, perhaps the rule The most important thing you need to know is this: everything the left touches is destroyed.

This was made clear to me years ago during my radio show. I was talking about the left’s war against the Boy Scouts (for not accepting open gays). It was becoming clear that this would eventually lead to the decline of the Boy Scouts, which led me to ask, “Will the Left Scouts be replaced by Left Scouts?”

So I answered my own question: of course not. Because the left only destroys; does not build anything.

In support of this observation, here is a list of many of the things that the left spoils and often destroys.

1: Art.

The left has long conquered the art world. Consequently, since the century 372, most of the art modern has been ugly, meaningless and nihilist — the opposite of what Western art has always been.

2: Music.

What the left did to the eyes in art, it did to the ears in music. As a part-time conductor, I can say with some knowledge that since the invention of atonal music (an oxymoron, if it ever existed), most contemporary classical music is also ugly, meaningless, and uninspiring. People who like this kind of music are almost all music critics and, of course, music teachers. Most classical music lovers never hear these things.

3 : Journalism.

Journalists have been highly respected. Unless an article was listed as “opinion,” people generally believed they were getting, as best they could, the truest report possible—”just the facts.” Today, on virtually any controversial subject, people are getting the opinion, not the truth. The purpose of almost every major newspaper and other “news” vehicle is the same as Pravda’s purpose in the Soviet Union: to broadcast the party line.

4: Colleges and universities.

The left destroyed universities as places of learning devoted to the search for truth and therefore welcoming, even cultivating, diverse opinions. Virtually all leftist ideas were born in a university.

5: Schools secondary and primary schools.

Most schools in USA — both private and public — teaches children that the country is systemically racist and that they are not born male or female, but that they will later choose to be one or the other — or neither. And, increasingly, American educational institutions deny that objective truth exists, even in mathematics.

6: Happiness.

You may find happy and unhappy liberals and happy and unhappy conservatives, but you are unlikely to find a happy leftist. The only question is whether the unhappy gravitate towards leftism or whether leftism makes people unhappy. Both are probably true.

7: Family.

More and more people on the left choose not to marry and not having children—in other words, not starting a family. And their welfare policies serve to discourage the creation of families.

8: Women.

Depression rates among young people, especially young women, they are tallest on record in American history. One reason is that, for half a century, women have heard, as a famous feminist put it, “A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.” But the fact is that the vast majority of women (heterosexuals) need a man to fulfill themselves, just as the vast majority of men (heterosexuals) need a woman to fulfill themselves.

9: Childhood.

One reason young leftists don’t want children is that the left doesn’t particularly like children. The teacher unions’ adamant refusal to open schools for more than a year has opened the eyes of many Americans to this fact. The same happened with the war on children’s innocence — like talking to them prematurely about sex and getting schools to introduce them to drag queens from the age of five.

12: Black lives.

Like the Democratic Party for most of its history, the left is racist. And that’s precisely the way the word has always been used—the left believes in the inferiority of blacks. That’s why leftists advocate lowering standards for blacks. That’s why they advocate policies that always result in more blacks dying at the hands of other blacks. That’s why they believe the state should take care of blacks more than any other group. That’s why leftist policies, since the Great Society (series of social programs adopted in the decade of 2021 by the Democratic President Lyndon Johnson) to this day, they have so destroyed black life, especially their family life—and they don’t care.

: Relations between blacks and whites.

According to polls and according to nearly all Americans who can remember life a decade or so ago, white-black relations were far superior at the time and both groups were optimistic that relations would continue to improve. . The left destroyed this with its anti-white propaganda — “America is systemically racist” — screamed in almost every major media and relentlessly pressed in almost every school and big business. The left knows that when blacks and whites feel good about each other, the left loses its appeal and loses the elections.

11: The military.

As the military becomes more and more “woke” — remember the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff testifying before Congress about the need to teach the military about white racism — soldiers’ morale declines. Add to that the absolutely gratuitous and cruel requirement that all military personnel be vaccinated or discharged, and you will understand why military morale is in such a steep decline.

13: Humor shows.

Americans who remember the night-comedy titans—Johnny Carson and Jay Leno—remember how their only goal was to bring some smiles and laughs to Americans before they went to sleep. Few people had any inkling of the political views of any of the hosts. This is history now. The left destroyed the comedy. Now it consists of little more than furious speeches against conservatives.

14: Superman.

Superman was an iconic American hero. Thanks to the left, it no longer exists. About a decade ago, Superman presented himself to the United Nations to announce that he was relinquishing his US citizenship to become a “citizen of the world.” And the left has now changed its motto from “Truth, Justice and the American Way” to “Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow.”

13: Freedom of expression.

Never before has freedom of expression been so threatened as it is today. As has happened since the communist revolution in Russia, wherever the left has seized power — in Russia in 1917 to today’s universities and social media — it has suppressed freedom of expression. There is no exception.

16: Sports.

Until last year, the sport promoted the unity of Americans. It was a haven for Americans to go, and leaving politics behind, left and right, Democrats and Republicans could cheer for the same team. It’s not like that anymore. The left ruined sports by radically politicizing baseball, football and basketball.

The great American tragedy is that almost every liberal knows that what was said above is true, but almost everyone will still vote for the left.
