How to gauge the prevailing ideology. In stark contrast to ritualized witch-hunting of rightists (examples given) …

It’s hard to think of a situation where holding left-wing beliefs, no matter how left wing they are, would get someone removed from an an organization that is not itself expressly right-wing.

(Feel free to take that as a challenge. Reference here.)

    The only exception is that the left will sacrifice some of its own if they are not left-wing enough. Since left and right are opposites, that seems like de facto right-wing influence, so it may be moot.

    Just look at basic-bitch internet boards. Take some “Christian” forum for example. On all of them you can observe the same thing. A Communist feminista can blaspheme freely on the boards, advocate abortion and intersectionality, and cucktians will pathetically try to suck up to her, either impotently trying to explain to her why she’s wrong, or worse yet, concede points to her. Anyone showing up and saying anything vaguely sexist or racist sounding (like saying that perhaps if New Testament is right about Resurrection, maybe it’s also right about the women) is going to get banned faster than a nigger from a library.

    For the record, Ward Churchill was kicked out of his academic position for ethics violations. His supporters, of course, claim him as a martyr for the cause, taken off the dole by The Man for daring to speak Truth to Power.

    Churchill was a shameless liar but still a darling of the Left, while Watson et al get put away for speaking the truth.

    “any institution not specifically right wing becomes left wing” Id take it a step further ,even specifically right wing institutions eventually become leftist. US military marching in red heels, Catholic church,Ford foundation, Boy scouts of America, National Review,

    Any organization that are insufficiently reactionary becomes leff wing overtime. Especially those who do not look out for even r-types that enpouse Right Wing ideas but process information like a leftist rabbit. Looking at certain WN who think in a similar way.

    Cheaters they certainly are. Never honourable in their actions.

    without being specific about the challenge Id say the left is eating its own now so if not left enough counts examples can be found also its not clearly lefter sometimes but the right kind of left so within a leftist branch and between leftist branches exist conflicts which are handled the way leftys handle all disagreements inciting a mobbing.

    Israel Finkelstein was more or less unpersoned in his academic career for telling the truth about Shoah extortion rings. He’s pretty lefty.

    When this happens to Jews it’s usually not an attack on them for being too left-wing, it’s because they stand accused of “internalized antisemitism.” In other words, they’re suspected of having right-wing beliefs about themselves.

    The classic counterexample to this I can think of is the Israel/Palestine problem. From what I understand, leftists feel like they get fired or unaccepted or uninvited from jobs all the time due to their pro-Palestinian position. Are there any other counterexamples people can think of?

    …pro-Palestinian position…

    It seems that not voicing the proper sentiment about Jews in general is a no-no. I’m thinking of reporter Rick Sanchez and director Spike Lee: both had proper liberal cred, but saw their careers slowed after some remarks.

    I’m also thinking of Don Imus: pretty much politically correct, but he was temporarily out of the club for making some not approved remarks about a college basketball team.

    God, the only thing as boring as Imus is nappy-headed hos playing b-ball.

    Insufficiently left-wing beliefs can certainly get someone removed from an organization for being a right-deviationist. There might perhaps be a few examples of people removed for being left-deviationists, which is to say openly espousing certain left-wing positions earlier than is considered optimal, before the groundwork has been laid for them to become the new accepted positions.

    The Soviet Union more or less abandoned Allende for being too far left (ie ruining the economy) in Chile. Not quite an organization, but the Sovs were never as keen on Allende as lefty Swedes were.

    I think that answers your question.

    Thanks for the Link. Utterly fascinating; from the picture, to the paid “diversity and welfare” officer position, to the complete meltdown from accusing each other of not being holy enough.

    A lot of what’s in Spengler and Nietzsche is also more appropriately a fixture of European Aryanid civilization and not generalizable to Sand People or Chinesians, for that matter.
