This Actually Explains A Lot

Over at PJMedia, Spengler opines on why folks like The Reason I’m Here hate people like me so much:

They are being silly. We know they are being silly, and they know we know, and they can’t stand it. It isn’t quite how we repudiate the idea that the opposing party has any legitimacy at all. But we can’t stop giggling.

“Reductio ad absurdum” does not begin to characterize the utter silliness of liberals, whose governing dogma holds that everyone has a right to invent their own identity. God is dead and everything is permitted, Zarathustra warned; he should have added that everything is silly. When we abhor tradition, we become ridiculous, because we lack the qualifications to replace what generation upon generation of our ancestors built on a belief in revelation and centuries of trial and error. Conservatives know better. G.K. Chesterton said it well: “Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about.”

It resonates.  He’s an idiot.  We know he is an idiot, and he knows that we know.  And he can’t stand that we refuse to take him seriously.

Read the whole thing.

  1. He’s an idiot. We know he is an idiot, and he knows that we know. And he can’t stand that we refuse to take him seriously.

    Ahh, but does he know that he's an idiot, too?And every "book" and "comedy album" that he creates but doesn't sell hints at it for him. The discovery of his plagiarism of the "acceptitol" joke must chafe his ass (more so then the Depends).

  2. He's being more disciplined than I've ever seen him, though. Gail must be keeping him sedated.

    Good for her!

    1. If anyone decides to waste money sending a Christmas present to someone "special", I would remind you that the expert on twitter who is in the know has said that Poopsenders is a "legitimate business", and therefore, legal.

      Not that anyone should do anything like that.
