Today we see all of this being proven correct, by the liberal left, on a daily basis. In the very liberal country of Canada, a man in Montreal was recently arrested for saying unflattering things about Muslims on the internet. That very same evening, in the very liberal American state of California, violent riots broke out to shut down a speech by a Trump supporter. The following evening there was also violence in New York for the exact same reason. In Europe you have people who claim to be liberals supporting laws against Holocaust denial, people who claim to be liberals actively thwarting democracy when the results go against the European Union project and you have people who claim to be liberals screaming about misogyny and homophobia when done (or allegedly done) by one type of people but either ignoring it or even making excuses for it when done by another type of people. What happened to equality? The slightest talk of having laws which support Christian morality are swiftly condemned by liberal countries but many of these same countries openly allow for segments of their populations to be governed according to Islamic law with no worries or warnings about theocracy. What happened to freedom of religion?
At the very core of their ideology is supposed to be the “power of the people”. They pride themselves on how democratic they are. They love democracy so much they will fight for it, die for it and kill other people to force them to accept it! The underpinning of this is that the people, or the majority of the people anyway, are always or at least almost always right. Yet, in the United States, for example, it was not enough to let the people in each state decide whether they would allow abortion or recognize gay “marriage” since, after all, some states chose not to. So, the liberal left had to turn to nine un-elected judges on the Supreme Court to force the entire country to do what the liberal left thought was right. One could, of course, argue that this is not so important as deciding how and by whom you are ruled which, we are told, is the ultimate goal and ultimate good of liberalism, of the concept of democratic republics. Yet, here too, we ourselves have seen liberal hypocrisy on display from ‘day one’. If the whole point of having a democratic republic is to allow the people to choose how they are governed, why is it that democratic republics such as France or Germany or Italy all forbid the people from choosing to be governed by a monarchy?
It says something about the true feelings of the liberals, about their doubts concerning their own utopian world view. “The people can choose any government they like! You know, except for that one…” which was monarchy. It was once practically standard procedure to not only make it illegal to restore the monarchy, illegal to campaign for it but they would usually go even further and expel their former royals from their own countries (and that when they didn’t simply murder them). As late in the game as World War I the Bourbon-Parma brothers Prince Sixtus and Prince Xavier, devoted to the cause of France and the Allies, tried to join the French army but were forbidden because they were members of the Bourbon dynasty, even though it was a fairly remote junior branch that had been farmed out to rule a patch of conquered Italy and not France itself. No, the French Republic considered these two young men too great a threat to allow them to defend the soil of their ancestors, at least while wearing a French uniform and so they instead joined the Belgian army whose King was rather more accepting of any help he could get.
Again, this is not all that uncommon, even though most do not think about it. Several years ago the German High Court ruled that changing the constitution to make Germany a monarchy rather than a republic would be illegal, no matter if every single voting adult in Germany wished for this to be so. Even democrats believe democracy has its limits it seems. The Germans, of course, are a rather unique case and could be a major contender for having the most hypocritical political establishment in the world. While prattling on about freedom they ban political parties, ban certain speech, ban certain public assemblies all depending on what is politically fashionable, politically incorrect or which might threaten the ruling political establishment. So far, they have yet to ban any monarchist organizations because, frankly, they have posed no serious threat. However, they are perfectly capable of doing so should that ever change. They seem to have very little trust in the German people and very little confidence in their own ideology given that they regard it as too fragile to withstand competition from fundamentally opposing viewpoints.
So, yes, the liberals are showing themselves to be colossal hypocrites. They suppress speech they don’t like, the overrule the public when a vote does not go their way, they riot and vandalize when they lose, demanding the rules be changed to let them win. The world is seeing it now on full display, practically on a daily basis. For those of us who believe in traditional authority, those of us who never bought into their utopia in the first place, those of us who believe that blood is thicker than ballot paper, this is no surprise. After all, they came for us first.
