Addiction, according to the dictionary it means:
- the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.
What addiction you might ask?
The addiction of championing something. The left is all about being someone’s champion.
Look at any leftist group. They are out being the champion of some group, from blacks to muslims to the LGBT groups. They will assail you with pages upon pages of victimization caused by some majority, usually white, Christians, or the right.
Many such causes start out with some justification which is used over and over again as this addiction takes hold.
By now you’re asking, why is this a bad thing?
Well, what happens with the left is after they win a point they don’t sit back and go its better now. They have hit a high, they got something done! Now they need to find the next thing to champion so they can get their next high.
With each step they get further and further outrageous to gain more and more attention.
Its the reason why 15 years ago if one saw an article claiming ‘snow is racist’, we’d all laugh and know it was satire and probably from the Onion. Today, we no longer know if its satire, and in fact on one college campus students readily signed on to ban “White Christmas” because it was racist.
This is a perfect example of the championing addiction. They are constantly looking, and finding, something to champion no matter how outrageous because they’ve become addicted to it.
Like a drug addict they don’t see the harm they are creating. They’ve allowed themselves to believe they are doing the right thing for someone else. They are ‘helping’ some poor soul who can’t speak for him/herself. They become immune to anything other than something that supports their narrow conclusion.
Debate is pointless with these addicts. Its why they call anyone who dares challenge them names. To them that person isn’t human. They will scream any number of names, do anything do shut them up, and not care at all.
The addiction is that powerful. That’s what we are up against in the far left.
