One thing though is that our PC ‘enemies’ seem to have, over time, been driven off the reservation. This is a pity really because I really enjoy a good give an’ take. But a recent series of posts from a reader opened up a different possibility: That these ‘enemies’ might have been in fact converted, not driven off.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present rebelliousvanilla. She’s commented on a range of posts including this, this, and this, and also many on the Nordic countries.
On the latter she has makes the following pithy response to some of our best known commentators:(Emphasis added by me).
"Zngr, the fact that if Finland and Denmark fix their issues the immigrants move to Sweden is actually good. It puts pressure on the Swedish politicians to act, not only because the enrichers move to Sweden, but also because the Swedes see the benefits in the two other countries.And to people who think Marxism lost the Cold War, you are kidding yourselves. The present day Westerners think along Marxism lines by a far bigger margin than people in my country do and we were officially a Marxist country."
"kulak, I'm a 20 years old girl who was a liberal on social issues merely 1.5 years ago. My favourite cartoon as a child was Captain Planet - now I hate greenies with a passion. LOL. Right now, I hold views that are against even what most conservatives see as fair(I dislike democracy with universal suffrage and civic nationality, I think we shouldn't vote - we being women, I'm in favour of national service for men, I think we should strip all non-Europeans in Europe of their citizenship and 'oppress' them).
A year ago I would have hated myself for these views. But the more contact I have with all this stuff, the worse it gets. At least in my country people aren't brainwashed and they're easy to convert to my views. I convinced a girl in under 2 hours that I'm right. And I do care about things related to having children"
So here we have a 20 year old girl, from a former Communist country, who had drunk of the PC multicult KoolAid, and who has had reality suddenly restored, presumably by direct exposure to that particular environment. Additionally, she has been able to convert friends to reality in quick order - as have I, I might add. Only yesterday I was speaking to a died-in-the-wool liberal/progressive who revealed by his comments that he was rapidly swinging around to the correct viewpoint - i.e. mine!
So there's hope out there. Thank you Miss Vanilla!
