Nor do I buy the notion that Lefties, however misguided, are nicer people than those on the Right. Cobblers. Lefties are typically mean-spirited, bossy, self-absorbed and indifferent to most people they actually meet. The middle class ones bleat on endlessly about the plight of the worker, or the African, or the female, but would never dream of having a carpenter over for supper. The nominally working class ones are, to the casual observer, workshy oafs who take any opportunity to down tools and go on strike. Both classes of Leftie revel in bullying people, and use the humbug that they are championing the rights of the many or of the underdog as cover for being horrible and getting power for themselves.
Make no mistake, it is sheer misanthropy that motivates most protestors. Theirs is a very clever ruse. They persuade the credulous that they are obeying their social conscience specifically in order to indulge their anti-social – and often violent – tendencies. Thus Marxist thugs terrorise Northern Ireland and the British mainland for decades, animal rights [sic] activists batter human beings, and students revel in smashing up property because they claim to be “anti-globalisation” – a term which should be dismissed not only as economically illiterate but racist, seeing as global free trade is the only hope for countries mired in poverty.
