Decolonization: What If Booting Radical Leftists Out Of The US Is The Best Option?

•, By Brandon Smith

How much should civilization and heritage bend to the desires of contrary groups in the name of freedom? If a movement has consistently proven itself to be a destructive force that seeks to undermine the foundations of the west, should they be allowed to stay in the west? Is it authoritarian to kick them out? If it is, does it matter?

If these activists hate western culture so much, why would they want to stay in places like the US? Why not leave of their own accord to a nation or society that fits their philosophical demands? The only logical conclusion is that they stay because they want to sabotage the US and force everyone else to submit to their political vision. The truth is, leftists are ideological colonizers pretending to be "victims" of colonization.

Last year I published an article titled 'A Study Of Cultism Shows Us Why Gatekeeping Against Leftists Is A Good Thing.' The core of my argument was rooted in a historic example of far-left extremism and moral relativism allowed to run amok in a rural community in Oregon, and how state and federal governments eventually had to deal with the threat.

In 1981, the small town of Antelope, Oregon was chosen by the Rajneesh cult led by a man who would later call himself "Osho" as the future capital of his movement. After being run out of India by numerous investigation, the cult sought out a place where they could infiltrate and establish without much opposition. The Rajneesh would visit the town in limited numbers, buy up land, and then thousands arrived suddenly in waves.

The surrounding areas were primarily conservative, and this was the real genius behind the Rajneesh relocation. You see, in conservative regions of America there is a continuing respect for individual liberty and this is something we should always hold dear. That said, our habit of accepting people's intentions at face value and assuming that discrimination is the same as authoritarianism sometimes gets us into trouble. "Democracy" without skepticism and discernment is a recipe for disaster, and frankly, not all freedom is good. There is such a thing as responsibility, which is a concept that remains alien to most progressives.
