The Left Has No Need of Evidence

Know who you are dealing with.


Equating accusations with proven fact is reckless and repressive. It is also standard behavior in liberal politics, whereby they ruin lives without a second thought.

[…]

The leading progressive Democratic candidate in New York City’s mayoral race, City Comptroller Scott Stringer, has had his chances for victory along with his reputation utterly destroyed over the last week. That happened due to allegations from a political consultant, Jean Kim, that Stringer groped her eighteen years ago, in 2003.

Despite no evidence presented that any of this happened, and despite this being the only assault accusation ever voiced about Stringer during his decades in public life, and despite Kim never having once claimed any of this even when she was working for a rival candidate who was ultimately defeated in 2013 by Stringer, and despite the sudden emergence of this accusation as Stringer’s mayoral campaign was surging, and despite evidence showing that Kim was highly misleading in several of her statements, and despite Stringer’s claims that Kim had been his girlfriend for several months accompanied by vehement denials of wrongdoing, numerous leftist groups and politicians who had endorsed him repudiated his candidacy within days of the emergence of this allegation, issuing statements which treat Kim’s claims as proven truth and depict Stringer as a vile sexual predator.

That is because, as has been seen repeatedly, the prevailing mentality in left-liberal politics is that even grave life-destroying accusations are to be treated as true without the need for any evidence. They casually and with apparent glee ruin people’s reputations and lives without batting an eye the second someone utters an allegation of sexual misconduct. And one is required to mindlessly accept such accusations as truth — never ask for evidence if it is true — if one wishes to remain in good standing in those circles and to avoid being smeared oneself as an apologist for sexual misconduct.

The lawless left is, well, lawless.

Understand that when dealing with them.

But the far more important point is that any culture that is willing to destroy reputations and lives based on totally unproven accusations is one that is inherently corrupt and unjust. The ability to destroy someone’s life with nothing more than an uncorroborated claim voiced more than eighteen years after the alleged incident is a power with which nobody should be trusted.

They do now care about evidence. They do not care about truth. They do not care about justice. They do not care about impartial law. They do not care about fairness.

They care about winning, getting what they want, right now.

Nothing else.

Know who you are dealing with.

To hate the law, to be utterly unjust and uncaring and wicked in the pursuit of arbitrary power, is to turn your back on God.

And to turn your back on God is to choose destruction and death for yourself.


Christians would be wise to insure that all the evidence is weighted, that there is no rush to judgement, that there is no bias in our judgements. No matter who is being judged, friend or foe, believer or unbeliever.

If God holds the godless to His standards, then He is sure to do the same to us, who claim to follow His Law-Word!

We must learn from the destruction of the left.

We must not go down the road they have chosen.

Or we will most certainly be destroyed, as they are being destroyed.
