The psychology of leftists, according to Unabomber Ted Kaczynski:
His feelings of inferiority are so ingrained that he cannot conceive of himself as individually strong and valuable. Hence the collectivism of the leftist.
He can feel strong only as a member of a large organization or a mass movement with which he identifies himself
Leftists of the over-socialized type drive for power has only one morally acceptable outlet – to impose their morality on everyone
Ted Kaczynski addresses leftism as a movement (he states that he uses “the term ‘leftism’ because we don’t know of any better words to designate the spectrum of related creeds that includes the feminist, gay rights, political correctness, etc., movements”) and analyzes the psychology of leftists, arguing that they are “True Believers in the sense of Eric Hoffer“ who participate in powerful social movements to compensate for their feelings of inferiority:
When someone interprets as derogatory almost anything that is said about him (or about groups with whom he identifies) we conclude that he has inferiority feelings or low self-esteem. This tendency is pronounced among minority rights advocates, whether or not they belong to the minority groups whose rights they defend. [However] the leftist is not typically the kind of person whose feelings of inferiority make him a braggart, an egotist, a bully, a self-promoter, a ruthless competitor. This kind of person has not wholly lost faith in himself. He has a deficit in his sense of power and self-worth, but he can still conceive of himself as having the capacity to be strong. But the leftist is too far gone for that. His feelings of inferiority are so ingrained that he cannot conceive of himself as individually strong and valuable. Hence the collectivism of the leftist. He can feel strong only as a member of a large organization or a mass movement with which he identifies himself.
In Kaczynski’s view, the nature of leftism is determined by the psychological consequences of “oversocialization“:
The moral code of our society is so demanding that no one can think, feel and act in a completely moral way … Some people are so highly socialized that the attempt to think, feel and act morally imposes a severe burden on them. In order to avoid feelings of guilt, they continually have to deceive themselves about their own motives and find moral explanations for feelings and actions that in reality have a non-moral origin. We use the term “oversocialized” to describe such people.
Because of the restrictions placed on their thoughts and behavior by their high level of socialization, many leftists of the over-socialized type cannot pursue power in the ways that other people do. For them the drive for power has only one morally acceptable outlet, and that is in the struggle to impose their morality on everyone
Theodore John Kaczynski (/kəˈzɪnski/; born May 22, 1942), also known as the Unabomber, is an American mathematician, anarchist and domestic terrorist. A mathematical prodigy, he abandoned a promising academic career in 1969, then between 1978 and 1995 killed 3 people, and injured 23 others, in a nationwide mail bombing campaign that targeted people involved with modern technology. In conjunction with the bombing campaign, he issued a wide-ranging social critique opposing industrialization and advancing a nature-centered form of anarchism
A 9-year-old Dylan Harbin of California is a fan of President Trump that he asked for a “Donald Trump cake” for his birthday. Emotionally fragile bakery owners refused to make a Trump cake for the little boy his mother decided “made him one herself.” Unhinged hypocrites!
he Washington Times reported:
The media scrambled to verify the letter’s authenticity, and the next day, The Washington Post confirmed it was sent by 9-year-old Dylan Harbin of California.
The Post reported that, when Dylan asked for a “Donald Trump cake” for his birthday, his mother “made him one herself, because she couldn’t find a bakery willing and able to do it.”
Michael P. Farris is president, CEO and general counsel of the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Christian legal group defending Jack Phillips, a Colorado baker who was sued by a gay couple for declining to make their same-sex wedding cake.
Mr. Farris wondered why bakers are allowed to decline to make birthday cakes supporting Mr. Trump, but not wedding cakes supporting same-sex marriage.
“Similarly here, cake shops declined Pickle’s order for conscience reasons,” Mr. Farris wrote in a blog post on Thursday. “Yet, no one on the Left is calling for legal action against the cake shops. And neither should anyone on the Right.”
“The fact is that these cake shops have freedom of speech,” he continued. “They have the right to decline to use their artistic talents to celebrate events or promote messages that violate their beliefs, even if it offends a nice little kid.”
New York: Mohammad Aini, 46, badly beat his wife but could not be charged because of he is a counselor to the Afghan Mission to the UN, which gives him diplomatic immunity.
Under Islamic law, beating a wife and other female members of the family is recommended. Imams instruct Muslim worshipers on the proper way to beat their wives. The mandate to beat one’s wife is in the Qur’an:
“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34
New York: Muslim diplomat protected by immunity after beaten wife taken to ER
Mohammad Yama Aini allegedly assaulted wife Mezhgan Aini, 30, inside their Union Street home in Flushing at 12:30 a.m. Saturday, police sources said.
At some point, Aini then drove his wife to Flushing Hospital, where she eventually told workers he had pulled her hair, slapped her and punched her in the face, leaving her with swelling, pain and redness on her right eye, sources said.
Hospital workers called the police, who arrived at the medical facility at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, sources said.
But Mohammad, 46, could not be charged because of he is a counselor to the Afghan Mission to the UN, which gives him diplomatic immunity, sources said.
“Obviously, [the wife] was hurt enough that she went to the hospital and the hospital felt compelled enough to notify the police,” a source told The Post.
“I’m sure the hospital victims’ services referred her to get help. But if he’s not arrested, what can you do?”
Mohammad on Sunday denied to The Post that he hit his wife.
“I think you have it wrong,” he said over the intercom at the building where he and his family live. “Nothing happened. The hospital is saying nothing happened, and the doctors and my wife say that nothing happened between us.”
When a reporter asked to speak to his wife, he said she was not at home.
( Fox News ) Loretta Lynch used the alias “Elizabeth Carlisle” for official emails as attorney general, including those related to her infamous tarmac meeting last summer with former President Clinton.
The emails were included in 413 pages of Justice Department documents provided to conservative watchdog groups Judicial Watch and American Center for Law and Justice.
Top federal officials using email aliases is not illegal or new, considering others in the former Obama administration also used them, arguing security concerns and spam to their official email addresses swamping their in-boxes.
Eric Holder, Lynch’s predecessor, used “Lew Alcindor,” the former name of retired NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
However, critics of the practice argue that such aliases can result in some requested emails to and from officials going undetected.
Lynch used the alias to help craft responses to media requests about the meeting, the documents show.
And former IRS official Lois Lerner, who was at the center of the agency’s targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, also used an alias — Toby Miles.
Fox News host Sean Hannity has laid down a challenge that he will sue the Obama administration if it turns out he was under NSA surveillance and his name was “unmasked” either within the administration or to members of the press.
“I am going to sanction the biggest lawsuit that I possibly can with the biggest attorneys in the country so we can do something to stop the shredding of the Constitution,” Hannity said in a radio broadcast on Aug. 4, noting that he has on “pretty good authority” that he was under Obama administration NSA electronic surveillance and that the Obama administration “unmasked” his name.
On March 20, Infowars.com published records obtained from Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse that individual records of hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens were under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010, in a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.
Fox News reported on June 23 that Judicial Watch was unable to obtain records on Trump’s 2016 campaign team “unmasking” because all relevant NSA records have been transferred to President Obama’s yet-unopened presidential library and will not be available to the public for five years.
Disclosure of the names of U.S. citizens identified through the course of NSA electronic surveillance of foreign operatives under FISA-court authorization is a federal crime, regardless whether the “unmasking” involves disclosure within the government or to outside sources, including the press.
Sean Hannity was a guest on ‘Rose Unplugged‘ and gave his reaction to these allegations.
Hannity: “You know, look..I’m only reading the same things that you’re reading and I don’t have any confirmation at all, but apparently somebody is saying that there was surveillance of me and unmasking of me. Now, I have no knowledge of it, Rose. We’re friends..I always tell the straight up truth…
…And I will say this, if it ever does turn out to be true, I will be filing suit because, you know they can’t say that is incidental surveillance because that would be that there was no way…because I don’t do anything nefarious and that would mean that I would have been a target of a political….you know if political surveillance took place of me, I will sue everybody involved. I promise you.”
Rose: “Good for you!”
Hannity: “They will have to be deposed and go under oath and I will have civil action against anybody that might have been involved in that, but honestly I have no knowledge. I see what everybody else is seeing, my friends are seeing. I’ve been saying on Twitter that I have no knowledge of it…so but there have been stories all over the place about it but I really don’t know.
The ‘professional cuddling’ industry has seen a considerable spike in business since the election of Donald Trump to the presidency, a report from Rolling Stone has revealed.
One of those businesses is The Cuddle Sanctuary, based in Venice, California, which runs regular group cuddle events. According to Fei Wyatt, Cuddle Sanctuary’s Chief People Officer, the events were originally designed for people seeking human connection, autistic people, sexual abuse sufferers, individuals dealing with sexual dysfunction, or for people who are sexually abstinent.
However, Adam Lippin, co-founder and CEO of Cuddlist, which provides training to professional cuddlers and links people to local Cuddling services, said the industry has boomed since Trump became president.
“The holiday season was the first time that since Trump won the election that a lot of people were seeing their family,” Lippin told the outlet. “People with different political views were going to be in the same place with relatives. That was the first hit of people having to confront it in a significant way. We saw an uptick around that.”
Another industry leader, Marcia Baczynski, who co-founded the service Cuddle Party, claims many of her clients are people “triggered by Trump’s actions, history of sexual abuse allegations and manipulative behaviors.” Baczynski said:
The work is actually political now. It used to be the case that you talked about cuddle parties because these are important skills for life – everyone’s navigating boundaries. And now we need to have boundaries with our government. How the fuck do you do that? How do you conceptualize having a leader who is essentially an abusive asshole?
Anastasia Allington, a professional cuddler based in Austin, Texas, also claims many of her clients come to her in response to Trump’s presidency, including a man named John whose government job offer was rescinded after Trump introduced a federal hiring freeze. Allington said:
I started thinking about why it would be that people would seek out this service after this particular election and I think it has a lot to do with space. We walk through our days and we wear all these hats: mother, sister, employee, then something like this happens where, for many people, they felt bereft and the world doesn’t stop. In the cuddle space, you can be where you are with whatever emotion you’re feeling and no one has any expectations of you.
Other initiatives in response to Trump’s election last November include Democratic staffers bringing in “therapy dogs” to the U.S. Capitol, while Cornell University hosted a “Cry In” event where students were invited to gather on the Ivy League school’s main quad and cry together over the result.
‘BY WOMEN, FOR WOMEN’ Vegan cafe charges male customers 18 percent ‘man tax’ and seats women first in bid to address gender pay gap
By The Sun, Aug. 06, 2017
A CAFE is making waves after it began charging blokes more money in a bid to close the gender pay gap.
The feminist vegan owner of Handsome Her eatery in Melbourne, Australia, is making them pay an 18 per cent “man tax” as well as giving women priority over seating.
Owner Alex O’Brien told Broadsheet website: “I do want people to think about it, because we’ve had this (pay discrepancy) for decades and decades and we’re bringing it to the forefront of people’s minds.
“I like that it is making men stop and question their privilege a little bit.”
Ms O’Brien says the response from her customers has been positive, with one man even donating $50 (£30) to the cause.
