I have to say....many of you are responding exactly how I'd imagine a reactionary to respond to being called a reactionary.

Why do you guys get so offended by using a term that accurately describes yourself?

What's so bad with this term?!?

It's an accurate term for a particular political ideology.

Not a single person who's been upset has discussed the ideologies behind the term. You're completely ignoring the main points that characterize this term.

Is a progressive going to get offended by being called progressive? No.
So why do you reactionaries get so offended when you are called reactionaries? Riddle me that.

Possibly because people who lean more right do not like to be labeled? I personally am an individual and i have my own beliefs that may be similar to others but not the exact same. I believe in individual rights and not the rights of special interests over the individual.

The hive mind mentality of the progressives takes away from individuality and consolidates a central power that controls everything about your life.

Hmmmm I like a challenge like that . . .

How about . . .

1. Hyperventilating Pretend-Super-Rationalists?

2. Foaming Fingered Liberal Marxists?

3. Hyperventilating Hedonists?

4. Masticating Marxists? . . . as in teeth-grinding Marxists

5. Aging Hyperventilating Hippies?

6. Panic Attack Ridden Socialists?

7. Frenetically Muttering Marxists?

8. NWO ROBO-SHEEPLE?

9. Marxist Jihadi's?

10. Soros' Stoolies?

11. Soma Soldiers?

12. Morlach Marxists?

13. Eloi Exterminators?

14. Lobotomized Libs on Steroids?

15. NWO Waterboys?

I'll stop, for now. LOL.

I have noted over the years . . . that there seems to be SOMETHING about the liberal mind-set, psychology, dynamics . . . such that

THEIR

brain damage from OBVIOUS ATTACHMENT DISORDER

seems to have definitely included the usual EMOTIONAL EXPRESSION control centers such that with their typical chronic thin-skinned, hyper-haughty, hyper-arrogant indignations spewed loudly far and wide

their major frequent posters have chronically tended to be extremely gritchy, b**chy, brittle, personally assaultive etc. WAYYYYY beyond such from the "conservative reactionaries."

Perhaps it goes with the territory of being their own gods and believing in their own press releases.

. . . fingers only half in cheek, BTW . . .

Progressives?

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight . . . like infanticide = CHOICE

Progressive all the way back to Babylon's human sacrifices and other evil doings.

They are excellent word manglers, I'll give them that.

Thankfully, ATS has gotten a lot better amidst the general climate of raging liberalism now that the conservatives are not routinely trashed and can state their perspectives in a civil more or less level playing field.

The term "progressive" is a calculated farce.

The values held and displayed and shoved down the world's throat with endless Constitution shredding laws and regulations are

certainly ANYTHING BUT

progressive.

They harken back to

1. Hitler's Germany and Stalin's doings in terms of globalism's early experiments with government tyranny and control.

and actually to

Babylon and the demonized human sacrifice occult ridden doings of that era and regime.

IF we were using an accurate label for the liberal NWO robo-stoolies,

I'm confident there'd be plenty of squeeling and screaming from the porkers most pricked.

" I once overheard two botanists arguing over a Damned Thing that had
blasphemously sprouted in a college yard. One claimed that the Damned Thing
was a tree and the other claimed that it was a shrub. They each had good
scholary arguments, and they were still debating when I left them. The
world is forever spawning Damned Things- things that are neither tree nor
shrub, fish nor fowl, black nor white- and the categorical thinker can only
regard the spiky and buzzing world of sensory fact as a profound insult to
his card-index system of classifications. Worst of all are the facts which
violate "common sense", that dreary bog of sullen prejudice and muddy
inertia. The whole history of science is the odyssey of a pixilated card-
indexer perpetually sailing between such Damned Things and desperately
juggling his classifications to fit them in, just as the history of
politics is the futile epic of a long series of attempts to line up the
Damned Things and cajole them to march in regiment.


Quoted from Hagbard Celine's Never Whistle While You're Pissing
Written by Robert Anton Wilson & Robert Shea appearing in The Illuminatus! trilogy

I think that the above quote sums up, perfectly, the absolute asinine nature of applying lables. After all what is the point? Other than to give oneself the ability to file behavior into a specific personal paradigm for future castigation.

I agree. If you take a look at that chart I think it describes progressives well and accurately, and also gives many reasons why they're bad.

At the same time, they are not Fascists. And it's the Fascists who are in control of the government right now.

There are different types of animals, but since they're all animals why name them all?

The human mind is designed to categorize things. It's just how it works. It notices trends.

Oh another "woe is me" partisan thread by a Democrat.



I like to think that "this site" is filled with those who are starting to wake up to the illusion that the power elite have made. I wonder what this site was like when Bush was president.....wonder if Democrats were "reactionary" or simply doing what is right.

Given the NWO's daffynitionary

I don't know that fascists, Marxists, Monopolistic Capitalists etc. have a great deal of discriminating meaning any more.

I think it's ALL TYRANY with a capital "T."

The particular designer label of the off white whitewash of the moment probably doesn't matter a great deal when the black boots are bashing down the door . . . . or their when their bosses are shredding the last bits of the Constitution.

THEY don't particularly care about labels except as they are useful in manipulating the masses of sheeple and "useless eaters."

Emotion does not cloud judgement! It helps it. If I were to not let emotion "cloud my judgement" then the decision as to whether or not I should give a kidney to my Dad would be an easy one. It is in my best interest to keep both my kidneys. Since I love my Dad and don't want him to die it makes it a much harder decision when I add feelings in to the equation. The problem with the world in general is that people are constantly being convinced that their emotions don't mean anything when they actually mean everything because it shapes your reality. My reality is different than yours because my beliefs are different and hardly anyone sees anything objectively. In general I think if everyone realized that a selfish mindset is damaging to yourself in the long run then everyone would be better off including themselves. Unselfish not always meaning free with money but more importantly free with love.

So why do you reactionaries get so offended when you are called reactionaries? Riddle me that.


It is a simple difference between the progressive mind and other...people.

A progressive mind feels more secure and powerful when he (or she) can quantify, define, or outline who another person is. This method is the context from which a progressive views society and the world. It's simple and quick and requires no assessment of an individual beyond the label they are given.
This allows the one doing the labeling to establish where he and others fit within the progressive societal ideal and to guiltlessly dismiss all of those who fall below their standard.


Ultimately this is all simply shallow opinion but it is a more effective shorthand for reference when dealing with large groups of people in politics. And to progressives, the world is politics.

Others, not all but most, do not see themselves as a simplified and defined peg to be labeled and placed into the proper place as others see it.
Being stamped as "Item X", quantified and labelled at another persons narrow perceptions is, in and of it's self, offensive.

So obviously, you knew you would offend some people and get to gloat about being able to forsee that you would offend them as you set out to troll....er, set out to do.


These people are different from you because they don't NEED to label every person so that they know how to fit them into a way of thinking.

Maybe labeling every person you see is simply a social shorthand like doing algebra with letters instead of known values.

Maybe you simply want to avoid the heavy lifting of calculating the mantissa and only want to handle the integers. Maybe you don't see the individual as worthy of a name and labeling is a better system for you.


And yes, we know HOW to label people.
We simply don't need to constantly use these labels as a crutch.



You should know this though.
When it comes to people, all the best stuff is to the right of the decimal point.

Enjoy your social algebra.

I dont know about reactionaries but what I know is this site is full of the following:

1. People that blindly believe certain things, they might not know the whole story but they have already decided:.Anonymous are hax0ring the matrix to save us! Snowden never broke the law! All cops are evil! Just because someone is a LEOMilitary they can't do anything wrong. The Govt is wonderful , never does anything wrong and is only concerned with our best interests! The IlluminatedNSAHAARPMasons have caused every thing ever!

2. People that believe rocks on Mars are something other than, rocks.

3. Some awesome photographers.

4. People that jump to conclusions..you don't have to look any farther than the 777 crash thread to see that.

Take any 6 or 8 or 10 randomly chosen threads . . .

Take any 6 or 8 or 10 randomly chosen pages on those threads.

Assemble a panel of 5 self-labeled fierce liberals; 5 self labeled fierce conservatives (if you can find them on ATS) and 5 self-labeled authentic moderates--politically; religiously etc.

Have said panel assess said 6-10 pages as to whether the posters were discernably

VERY LIBERAL, LIBERAL, MODERATE, CONSERVATIVE, VERY CONSERVATIVE

THEN we might have a meaningful starting point for more functional and authentic dialogue on the issue.


THEN we might have some data to blather about.

At this point, I'm convinced my perspective and assessment is far more accurate than yours.

It is obvious to me that this material is from a conservatively biased blog!
I find it appalling how many of us need to subscribe to a collective ideology and especially from those
conservatives that long for the preservation of individualism, not to mention putting labels on others as well
as ourselves!
How can we expect to be individuals when we adhere to another person or persons ideals?
Originality is the most individual aspect of ourselves and without it we are just copies of the rest of the
brainwashed sycophant phenomenon we call society!
Is it not time to stand on our own two feet and think for ourselves outside the box of conformity?

Marriage equality threads often bring out conservative reactionaries.

And from a civil liberties perspective, it makes no sense to me that they get so passionate about an important civil right being made available to others.

When rights are expanded to cover more people, it doesn't take away from other people's rights. Unless the reactionaries believe they have a right to lord over others and that right is being curtailed.

I believe that reactionary attitudes toward gay rights are rooted in animus against the gay community. What else could it be?
