As David Horowitz has said, the Left itself is a totalitarian movement. At first we didn’t understand specifically what he meant by that. Most leftists (i.e. “liberals”, “progressives”, the politically correct) we knew or knew of didn’t appear in any way to be totalitarians themselves. And many leftist organizations I’ve known over the years were mostly democratic in their operation. But over time we’ve learned more fully what Horowitz was getting at, and in stating this observation he was echoing the same viewpoint Austrian economist Friedrich A. Hayek had expressed in the mid-20th century: “Socialism can be put into practice only by methods of which most socialists disapprove”.
A similar way to phrase the idea is, Leftist movements tend over time towards totalitarian governing models. Hayek arrived at this realization from an economic perspective in early 20th century Central Europe. Horowitz arrived at the same conclusion through his activism as a political leftist in 1960s and ’70s America. The concept has been clear to some for many decades. For others it’s becoming clearer by the week in these more turbulent times of western politics and culture, namely: that leftist organizations, as if by some irresistible gravitational force, slowly but steadily repudiate the basic principles of free society, with Freedom of Speech being the usual first casualty.

After a disastrous weekend for Obama’s immigration, gun control, and FBI policies, punctuated by yet more preventable Islamic terrorist attacks on American soil, the president really needed a distraction. And what better place for the Left to create this than at ground zero in one of the few states to openly – and popularly – resist Obama’s insane transgender bathroom proclamation. So agitprop thugs BLM are at it again, with an insta-mob riot in North Carolina where the Left really needs to get out the vote about a month from now.

This is the first of several upcoming articles to appear on AI that discuss billionaire leftist financier George Soros. His anti-western and anti-America passion has driven decades of activism of the most insidious kind – projects designed to bring about chaos, destabilization, and suffering of ordinary people, all to achieve his grand scheme for mankind.

Political correctness about human sexuality is fostering horror stories for some of the nation’s most vulnerable children and their families. A new report attempts to clear that away to present the science.

I noted a few months ago in an American Infrasound article called The Left Devours Its Own the recent phenomenon of the Left becoming increasingly intolerant of its own disciples – even those with decades of solid credentials like activist Peter Thatchell – if they don’t perfectly obey absolutely whatever the current power-wielders’ “Narrative” is. Giving further lie to the Left’s spurious claim that they popularly represent the marginalized, the oppressed minorities of the world and care nothing for their own political power is this outrageous (and highly entertaining) report of Milo Yiannopoulos’s “Dangerous Faggot Tour”.

How has it come to this?
If anyone is still having trouble just coming to grips with the fact that we, as a nation, are actually debating whether to inject men into women’s bathrooms, you’re not alone. You should still be having trouble coming to grips with it, especially with so many issues facing our nation right now that are actually substantive.
