Leftists Like To Throw Around The Term “The Big Lie”

Leftists love to toss around terms that they do not understand if they think it wins them points with their audience. Their goal is not to be right, but to sound right. When they all repeat the same thing, this unifies their group, and then they agitate for power based on the false unanimity that they have projected.

We have mentioned the term “Big Lie” before in order to point out that when the Left is using that phrase to criticize the Right, they are in facto parroting something originally used to criticize the foes of National Socialism. Hitler was describing his enemies, not his own plans.

Now that the election season has come around again, the phrase has resumed circulating, which leads us to look deeper into the two notions that the Nazis gave us for understanding The Big Lie:

The original description of the big lie appeared in Mein Kampf. Adolf Hitler applied it to the behavior of Jews rather than as a tactic he advocated. Specifically, he accused Viennese Jews of trying to discredit the Germans’ activities during World War I. Hitler wrote of the Jews’ “unqualified capacity for falsehood” and “that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation… From time immemorial, however, the Jews have known better than any others how falsehood and calumny can be exploited.”

Goebbels did describe the big lie in different language in an article he wrote in 1941, “Churchill’s Lie Factory,” but he was accusing the British of the ploy:

The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

In the first, Hitler criticizes The Jews;™ in the second, Goebbels criticizes the Eternal Anglo, or at least the absolute nightmare of democracy in England.

As this term is weaponized against the Right for correctly noting that our Tammany Hall inspired diversity elections are dubious, it makes sense to remember the Leftists doing this are citing a description of themselves.

The scarier point is how easily the democratic masses are manipulated. A quarter of the population is probably immune, but the rest are just looking for a convenient excuse for their lifestyles and resentments of those above them, and they always buy into a variant of the original “Big Lie,” equality itself.

Hitler’s anti-Jew jive never convinced me. Perhaps the Jews are as bad as he, the pro-Palestine protesters, the pogromists, and one hundred and ten other expulsions attest. But the ills of humanity like narcissism, hubris, and individualism are eternal. They are how societies die, once they give in. They are inevitable decay.

As with most forms of the “inevitable,” such as murder, we realize the risk is always there and minimize it. At some point societies take this for granted, decide to stop doing it, and then the decay which has been lying in wait takes over.

At its core, the “Big Lie” is the idea that we no longer need to stop watching out for the errors that always enslave us, and instead we can spend our effort on things that make us feel good. Maybe The Jews™ have a part in this, but the core always begins in the rottenness of humanity which the sane among us try to express.

Consider what would happen if in past pre-history humanity had existed as a perfected species:

It doesn’t matter whether they’re tiny Bengal cats or gigantic lions or tigers; they’re gonna basically look the same. If you handed me a lion or tiger skull, I could not—as a person who’s a pretty solid expert in carnivorans in general—tell you which one it was. Most people would be hard-pressed to tell you. They look nearly identical. That’s how similar cats are. There’s a teeny amount of allometry [disproportionate change in one body part relative to the whole as a consequence of size] if they get really big: a small elongation of the face and an increase in muscle mass. But the variation is nothing compared with what you see in other groups such as dogs. Ultimately big cats are really similar to small cats, far more so than you would predict.

Cats have nailed one thing so well that they all do it and just come up with slightly different sizes. That’s why they’re perfect evolutionarily. They don’t need variation. They might get bigger or smaller, but they don’t change anything else, because they’re just right otherwise. They’re not jacks-of-all-trades; they’re masters of one.

A perfected human might look like an idealized Nordic-Germanic person: big brain case, long limbs, slender but strong, fast reflexes, high IQ. A true racialist might see all other groups as variations on this which hybridized with local variants to form modern humans that have varied ancient roots.

In that view, Jews are just humans with high mutation load, brought in through hybridization with other races. Asians and Africans are just Denisovan and Australid-pygmy hybrids, or something of that nature. There is no longer anything mystical about “The Jew,” just a hybrid which bottlenecked itself to produce higher average IQ.

If we follow the racialist theories — play along with me here — the mutated tend toward less-than-optimal behavior, therefore they would tempt us toward giving in to our own failings. They invent nothing; they simply behave in less-than-optimal ways, and their presence not deeds lead us to see those as acceptable.

We do not have to go fully racialist to see this one play out as it does. For the purpose of being Us, we are the perfected species; any deviation encourages a loss of the knowledge that we know in our gut about what to do and what to avoid. Diversity itself kills us, no matter what the form.

In that sense, the “Big Lie” has always been with us, just waiting for us to be weak enough to give in.
