The Birth of a Meme: "Punitive Liberalism"


James Taranto teases the notion:

Writing in The Weekly Standard, James Piereson offers a useful addition to the American political glossary: "punitive liberalism." This "bizarre doctrine," which found its fullest expression in the presidency of Jimmy Carter, holds that "America had been responsible for numerous crimes and misdeeds through its history for which it deserved punishment and chastisement." Those who disagree "were written off as ignorant patriots who could not face up to the sins of the past."

This makes so much sense I am physically angered that I didn't think of it first. I am beating the stuffings out of my therapist-prescribed "Anger Puppets." My Anger Puppets are supposed to teach me the difference between "good touching" and "criminal assault." But I've stripped the clothes off them and I'm now arranging them in a naked puppet pyramid.

I may force one puppet to have sex with a Kenner(TM) Jabba's Prisoner Princess Leia figure. That'll show him.

Why do liberals always support military action when there is no national security threat implicated (Kosovo, Haiti, etc.) but start preaching pacificism when there is (Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, North Korea)?

Because we have sinned. We have to send troops to Haiti as pennance for our sins. We have to bomb Serbia for 77 days because we stole this country from the Indians.

But when a country actually threatens us?

Heavens! We daren't take military action. That would inure to our national-security self-interests, and we're not deserving of acting in our own best interests.

Perhaps, one day, after we've transferred one half of the country's wealth to Africa and the Middle East, then the ledger will be evened-up and we will be able to occasionally act in our own interests, as non-sinful countries like France are allowed to do.

But until that day-- we can act only in order to vindicate someone else's interests. Never, never, never our own.

It's an interesting theory, but explain to me how, exactly, our actions in Somalia (for example) were in anyone's interests? The military disasters you listed weren't just examples of American altruism, they were examples of us sending troops to places without considering anyone's interests whatsoever.

"My Anger Puppets are supposed to teach me the difference between "good touching" and "criminal assault." But I've stripped the clothes off them and I'm now arranging them in a naked puppet pyramid. "

Just.F*ing.Brilliant! Haven't laughed this hard since Allah went all gloomy. Poor dear!

Speaking of the beloved deity, someone needs to go and get him drunk, and possibly laid. I'd volunteer, but I have some,er, moral constraints about consorting with a deity.

Meanwhile, I have no constraints about reading your blog....and liking it.

Hey Joan...I'm feeling down, and I'm not a Diety (or an angel for that matter)...nudge, nudge.

Be careful with those puppets Ace! Sully might get wind of their "torture" and spend 3 weeks agonizing over whether he should read your blog or Oliver Willis'.

Grrrr... I had the last post (hitting on poor Joan)..but forgot my info, as is typical these days.

Posted by: Senator PhilABuster on June 21, 2004 05:52 PM

"President" Clinton echoed this theme at a talk at Georgetown University, saying in essence that we deserved 9/11 due to our past sins. The WaPo was there and declined to report on this outrage.

Posted by: dib on June 21, 2004 05:52 PM

I'm willing to bet Jimmy Carter and those who share his beliefs were laughable dodge ball players. They were the tubby kids who got consistently clipped on the skull or on the back of the knees as they fled in terror from that screaming, redrubber alpha male decider.

This is just a theory I'm working on, mind you, but anecdotally at least, it's ironclad.

Posted by: Jeff G on June 21, 2004 05:57 PM

I heard someone compare Republicans to a good parent who encourages the kids to keep trying. Then they compared liberals to an abusive parent who tells the kids they'll never amount to anything and that they'll always need help.

Posted by: rdbrewer on June 21, 2004 06:11 PM

Hey Ace, I think you missed the real story on WSJ's OpinionJournal:

Parkhudin, a 26-year-old Afghan farmer who was held at Guantánamo from February 2003 to March 2004, said in an interview in Khost that he had been questioned for up to 20 hours at a time under uncomfortable conditions at Guantánamo. He said he had been shackled with a small chain during questioning. ''They made me stand in front of an air-conditioner,'' he said. ''The wind was very cold.''

First, we rape them, then we turn on the fans? Will the horror never cease?

Posted by: Shawn on June 21, 2004 08:49 PM

Yep, very well written piece, although I'm with Taranto - it ain't dead yet.

But Reagan made it look boneheaded to hate America for 8 years.

Posted by: Dave in Texas on June 21, 2004 09:03 PM

Wait, let me get this straight. A native of Afghanistan (mountainous country with balls-shatteringly cold weather) imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (Island country with balls-scorchingly hot weather) is complaining about AC?


Posted by: Brian B on June 21, 2004 09:03 PM

I'm willing to bet Jimmy Carter and those who share his beliefs were laughable dodge ball players. They were the tubby kids who got consistently clipped on the skull...

So that's how Carter got that way.

It's an interesting theory but it doesn't hold up: I was a nerdy wuss in school too and look at me: all conservative and everything! I must've been one of the lucky ones...

Posted by: Smack on June 21, 2004 11:34 PM

I was also a nerdy wuss who got beat at Dodgeball all the time.
It taught me that pain means nothing if there is no actual injury, and to keep trying against impossible odds and that "losing less badly than before" is still a victory of sorts, and better than giving up or whining about it.

Posted by: nathan on June 22, 2004 01:28 AM

So, sorry, they theory doesn't hold. I sucked at dodgeball too. Got clipped all the time. All it taught me was that when the other kid has a red rubber ball, get yourself a JDAM.

Through that red rubber ball, sucker, I dare you.

Evidence for Cosmic Inflation Theory Bites the (Space) Dust
"The most exciting astronomical discovery of 2014 has vanished. Two groups of scientists announced today (Jan. 30) that a tantalizing signal... was actually caused by something much more mundane: interstellar dust." [rdbrewer]

NBC: Could Particle X Explain Dark Matter? Scientists Have a Plan
They think it might be 50 times lighter than an electron, and that it interacts with normal matter, not light. "[T]he researchers say particle X 'would have been missed by all experiments so far,' but might be detectable in space." More detail from The Daily Galaxy. [rdbrewer]

James Glanz, NY Times: Deflation Experiments Show Patriots May Have a Point After All
"When a gauge indicates that the ball contains 12.5 p.s.i. — the minimum allowed by the N.F.L. — the actual pressure is more than twice that amount because the surrounding pressure of the atmosphere must be considered. This roughly doubles how much a dip in temperature can lower the pressure." Whups. Added: @JohnPSquibob reminds me the Colts' balls didn't have the same decrease. Added 2: @CrankyTRex says the Colts' balls may have started out at a higher psi. [rdbrewer]

Adam Kredo: Open Jihad Declared in Egypt Following State Dept. Meeting with Muslim Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders
"The meeting was described by a member of the delegation, Maha Azzam as 'fruitful,' according to one person who attended a public event in Washington earlier this week hosted by the group." A "fruitful" meeting with State leads to a call for jihad? [rdbrewer]

The Kelly File: Insight into the rising tensions between White House, Israel
Brit Hume on the ongoing fury at the White House over Netanyahu's visit: The president needed to "put on his big boy pants" and welcome Netanyahu to Washington. Indeed, rolling with it would have been the better course of action. Problem is, the mean girls are running the show. [rdbrewer]

Charles Krauthammer: The Final Solution: a Nuclear Iran
"Anti-Semitism is on the rise in Europe, and in the Middle East a new Holocaust looms." President Teenager is on it. [rdbrewer]

"Put another way, 86 percent of Americans would like immigration into this country to remain at today's level or to decrease, versus seven percent who want to see it increase." [rdbrewer]

Editorial: The Times’ low Blow
"At The New York Times, it seems, some key facts are just not fit to print when they don’t fit the liberal narrative." But, the Narrative. [rdbrewer]

Michelle Goldberg, The Nation: Jonathan Chait and the New PC
Eh, worth a look. "Unlike some of Chait's critics, I think there is such a thing as renascent political correctness." No, it never went away. It's just that authoritarian progs are now bothering liberals. [rdbrewer]

Peggy Noonan: America’s Strategy Deficit
"No one thinks this administration is the A Team when it comes to foreign affairs, but this is unprecedented push-back from top military and intelligence players. They are fed up, they’re less afraid, they’re retired, and they’re speaking out." [rdbrewer]

Andrew Klavan, Truth Revolt: Attack of the But-Heads!
Video. Leftists and Islamists have something in common: big buts. [rdbrewer]

CNet: Bill Gates is worried about artificial intelligence too
Via Drudge. "Microsoft's co-founder joins a list of science and industry notables, including famed physicist Stephen Hawking and Internet innovator Elon Musk, in calling out the potential threat from machines that can think for themselves." Our intelligence has a million years of evolution behind it, plenty of time to work out a lot of issues. AI will start at the finish line, without the inhibitions on behavior we have. [rdbrewer]

Charles C.W. Cooke: Why Mike Huckabee’s Cornpone Politics Drives Me Crazy — And Will Never Work
Agreed, and I'm from the "grits and gravy" portion of the country, as he describes it. Raised in the city. I've had grits, like, maybe twice. I haven't had sex with a cow in over a year. So I find this appeal to stereotype more than a little annoying. Wait. I have to go holler "yeehaw" out the window... [rdbrewer]

GlobalPost: Here’s what moviegoers in Baghdad think of ‘American Sniper’
Spoiler alert: They don't sound like the prog speech police types over here. "'He was a hero and he went through difficult training,' Jalal explained, saying Chris Kyle was just serving his country, a universal duty for all men. 'Besides,' he shrugged, 'it’s just a movie, and I like war movies. If they are true or not, whatever!'" Via @DrewMTips. [rdbrewer]

John Sexton, Breitbart: The Primitive Roots of Political Correctness
"Altruistic punishment, simply put, is the expression of negative emotions toward those who fail to cooperate with the group. It is a pressure tactic designed to whip people into line with the tribe and its goals." [rdbrewer]

Sean Davis: Language Policing Doesn’t Pervert Liberalism, It Is Liberalism
"Modern liberalism depends on the language police, and Jonathan Chait himself is Exhibit A." [rdbrewer]

Kevin D. Williamson: Liberals Seek PC Exemption
"[C]ontrary to Chait’s characterization, [political correctness] never went away. The difference is that it is now being used as a cudgel against white liberals such as Jonathan Chait..." [rdbrewer]

BBC: 'Super Saturn' with giant rings is first outside solar system

Josh Kraushaar: Obama Is Setting Up Hillary Clinton to Fail
"The president's approval rating is inching up, but there's little public enthusiasm for his liberal agenda. That puts Clinton in an uncomfortable position." Don't forget: it's all about Obama. [rdbrewer]

Harry Enten, FiveThirtyEight: How Meteorologists Botched The Blizzard Of 2015

Robert Wargas, The Telegraph: How do identity politics work? A quick refresher course
From about a year ago. "Savage acts the way he does because he believes he is entitled to do so. He believes his status as a member of The Oppressed exempts him from the rules of common decency and politeness that his Bourgeois Oppressors follow." [rdbrewer]

Gabe: How Not to Fight Terrorism
"The Expatriate Terrorist Act before Congress is unconstitutional and unnecessary." [rdbrewer]

Gabe: Mike Huckabee Urges A Constitutional Crisis Over Marriage
"It is not the situation that, as Huckabee suggests, all three branches of federal government must first agree on what the law is for it to be the law of the land. It is even less the case that Congress and the president get to determine that the Constitution means something contrary to what the Supreme Court decides." [rdbrewer]

Robert Tracinski: Why Islam Is More Violent Than Christianity: An Atheist’s Guide
"But in today’s context, it’s absurd to equate Islam and Christianity. Pointing to the Spanish Inquisition tends to undermine the point rather than confirm it: if you have to look back three hundred years to find atrocities, it’s because there are so few of them today.... As an atheist, I have no god in this fight, so to speak." [rdbrewer]
