The decline and fall of socialist agitators part 1
So in the aftermath of Brexit one of the most interesting
developments we’ve seen is the disintegration of Labour. In truth this was to
be expected by anyone who’s been keeping a close tab on them.
If there was one man in western politics that was more inept and unprepared than Bernie Sanders- that would be Corbyn. At least Sanders did have some sort of track record as a mayor, but Corbyn only has to show for himself a bunch of backstabbings at his betters- Neil Kinnock and Michael Foot come to mind- but nothing more. His fellow MPs, who have seen him for years sitting in his chair and pretending to be part of the furniture while everyone else worked aren’t as easily fooled as the supporters.
In truth, Jeremy Corbyn’s performance as a leader was lacklustre at best. The man spent 40 years trying to become chairman, but it’s rather obvious that he never gave a thought to what exactly he’d do once he got there. In great communist tradition such as Lenin and such, he just assumed things will work out because he’d be able to keep everyone mesmerized by his empty nice sounding words in a megaphone. It was obvious since day one that his fellow MPs wouldn’t accept his authority. Spending 40 years in the Parliament as a hatchet man and backstabber with little in way of achievement does that to people.
You see, it’s easy to impress a mob. Just throw a bunch of impressive sounding
phrases at them and each and everyone of them will interpret them in whatever
way appeals to them. Being a blank slate agitator worked well for Obama, but I’m
afraid that in the process the system broke the mold- the agitator turned up to
be an incompetent empty suit.
Corbyn is one of those sad leftovers of the 60’s
and 70’s communist agitators who never really grew up. The man is so deep in his own echo chamber
that he fails to understand that the stuff that gets him applauses at socialist
meetings are deeply frowned upon in civilised circles. His own actions and associations are dubious
at best- the material about him appearing on an Iranian Television Post that
used torture to extract a confession from an anti government activist is
incredibly telling- the man is so deep into the poisonous 60’s and 70’s
ideology that he fails to even understand what was so wrong about his actions.
