The True Left is emerging

As we promised it would:

At the turn of the 21st century, 48 percent of liberal Democrats sided with Israel, compared to just 18 percent with the Palestinians. Over the decade-and-a-half since, the margin has narrowed at times, but even a year or so ago Israel still enjoyed more sympathy from this cohort, by 39 points to 21.

This year for the first time the trend lines crossed, and now more liberal Democrats sympathize with the Palestinians, by 40 points to 33.

Another 10 percent of liberal Democrats said they sympathize with neither party, seven percent said they sympathized with both, and 10 percent selected “don’t know.”

Democrats described as conservative or moderate continue to sympathize with Israel over the Palestinians by a sizeable margin – 53 points to 19.

The percentage of conservative Republicans sympathizing more with Israel than the Palestinians is greater than ever over the past 15 years of Pew polling – 79 points to 4 – while moderate or liberal Republicans also sympathize more with Israel by a big margin, 65 points to 13.

This shift in culture on the American left has already, under the Obama administration, manifested itself in policy. In early 2009, the president chose to re-join the UN Human Rights Council, a virulently anti-Israel body. The president famously wanted to put “daylight” between the U.S. and Israel, which led to flotillas trying to break the legal blockade of terrorist-controlled Gaza and a green light from the U.S. for European countries to begin their own boycott efforts. In the summer of 2014, during Israel’s war with Hamas, the administration closed Ben Gurion Airport to American air travel—an unnecessary move so outrageous that then-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg personally flew to Tel Aviv to show it was safe. During the war with Hamas, the president also personally intervened to stop a shipment of Hellfire missiles to Israel. And then, of course, there’s the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran.

Through it all, President Obama has been generally careful (except for the time he was caught on mic complaining about Mr. Netanyahu to then-French President Nicolas Sarkozy) to frame his policies as being somehow pro-Israel. But the far left no longer pretends to be pro-Israel and unashamedly opposes American support for the Jewish state. They are ascendant in their party. At some point, the façade was going to crumble.

merely defeating an anti-Israel Democrat platform will not change the underlying cultural current on the American left. Approving an anti-Israel Democratic platform will be the starkest evidence to date that the left is abandoning the Jewish state.

Previous coverage on this topic:

So, while due to the Trump effect the GOP may be transforming into the Racist & Islamophobic Party, there is no reason why more pressure from our side cannot likewise and within the foreseeable future turn the Democratic Party into the Anti-Zionist Party.

And remember, at least on this issue, demographics are on our side:

Now you know the real reason why Trump wants to build a wall on the southern US border.

  1. @AS:

    Fair enough. Lazy comment to begin with.

    Jo Cox might might not have been a true leftist, but I cannot silence before her barbaric murder.
    Far right terrorists took the life of a Labour MP, mother of two children, who had done nothing wrong except work for her own community.
    And now far right useful idiots instead of grieving about this sad event, say this was “a conspiracy to prevent Britain from getting out of the EU”.

    This is a bit off-topic, but I thought you guys might like to see The Occidental Observer’s cold-eyed analysis of how Jews are manipulating UKIP and the Leave campaign in general, plus acknowledgement of the way Corbyn has antagonized them (despite the fact that TOO obviously has no love of Corbyn’s racial policies). “You don’t have to have any time for the likes of Corbyn to see how astonishing it is: A clearly manufactured crisis is being used to drive a legitimately elected party leader out of office. It is nothing short of a mini coup d’etat and unprecedented in British politics.”, etc.

    I was wondering.

    In the False Left/True Left dichotomy, where would communism be? And I realise it is traditionally placed at the far-left, but, given that it is, in essence, class-based tribalism, would it not, in fact, be more accurate to place it at the right, together with the other forms of tribalism?

    “In the False Left/True Left dichotomy, where would communism be?”

    False Left. It is egalitarian, progressivist, utopian, atheist, believes that people are “blank slates”, and so on.

    “given that it is, in essence, class-based tribalism, would it not, in fact, be more accurate to place it at the right, together with the other forms of tribalism?”

    No, because tribalism is not what makes an ideology rightist. A positive evaluation of Western civilization is what makes an ideology rightist: (first paragraph)

    Non-rightist tribalists are mostly paganists.

    In the following paragraph I do state that Marx has something in common with neocons, but since neocons are only one faction of rightists, this cannot be considered a general rightist position. Besides, Marx only wanted capitalism to spread so that it could then be overthrown, whereas a sincere neocon would want it to spread and last.

    I remember you said you wanted something simple as the logo for the True Left. What do you think of something like this, simple, sword and runic like, and distinguishable?

  7. AS says:


    “What do you think of something like this”

    You have nailed it! Everyone, start putting this symbol on all promotional graphics etc. at once! You yourself in particular, NS, this symbol needs to be on your YouTube, your Twitter, and so on! Make people see it and think of you!

    It also looks like a hashtag, which means it can be easily incorporated into terminology that the True Left seeks to mark as its own.

    I’m currently writing the page for, “What is the True Left and Why is it Needed?”, and was contemplating using a couple quotes by Cato. Specifically, the one about usury, and this one: “Those who are serious in ridiculous matters will be ridiculous in serious matters.” — Cato the Wise

    Cato was anti-Hellenist, but is considered “conservative”. I also chose ‘Cato the Wise’ intentionally over some of his other aliases. What are your thoughts on both?

  9. Numinous_Sun says:


    What do you think of using Lord Acton’s quote about democracy: “The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections.”

    It is a shame that it’s such a good quote compared to some of the other things Lord Acton has said…

  10. AS says:


    Cato and Acton are not True Leftists, so to quote them positively (and especially to call Cato “Wise” or to acknowledge Acton as a “Lord”!) would risk readers wrongly assuming that we regard them with sympathy, and hence potentially creating confusion over what a True Leftist is supposed to be like. If you must quote them, it would be a good idea to also spend a paragraph immediately following the quote slamming them, just to leave readers in no doubt that they are not on our side.

    Quotes such as this one:

    >“Those who are serious in ridiculous matters will be ridiculous in serious matters.”

    should not appear on the True Left site at all, as it is impossible to tell whether the speaker is a leftist or a rightist from the quote alone, so that the quote does not help to clarify the left-vs-right conflict. In general, quotes that should appear on the True Left site are quotes whose leftness/rightness is self-evident.

    Acton’s quote about democracy suffers from the same problem.
