What’s Going On? A Stealth Revolution

UPDATED WITH A LIST OF RELATED READING

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) hints at the game plan:

I will be introducing a bill to remove Confederate statues from the US Capitol building. This is just one step. We have much work to do.

What work? Based on what I’ve seen since the Charleston church shooting in 2015, it’s a stealth revolution (e.g., this) piggy-backing on mass hysteria. Here’s the game plan:

Focus on racism — mainly against blacks, but also against Muslims and Latinos. (“Racism” covers a lot of ground these days.)

Thrown in sexism and gender bias (i.e., bias against gender-confused persons).

Pin it all on conservatives.

Watch as normally conservative politicians, business people, and voters swing left rather than look “mean” and put up a principled fight for conservative values. (Many of them can’t put up such a fight, anyway. Trump’s proper but poorly delivered refusal to pin all of the blame on neo-Nazis for the Charlottesville riot just added momentum to the left’s cause because he’s Trump and a “fascist” by definition.)

Watch as Democrats play the racism-sexism-gender card to retake the White House and Congress.

With the White House in the hands of a left-wing Democrat (is there any other kind now?) and an aggressive left-wing majority in Congress, freedom of speech, freedom of association, and property rights will become not-so-distant memories. “Affirmative action” will be enforced on an unprecedented scale of ferocity. The nation will become vulnerable to foreign enemies while billions of dollars are wasted on the hoax of catastrophic anthropogenic global warming and “social services” for the indolent. The economy, already buckling under the weight of statism, will teeter on the brink of collapse as the regulatory regime goes into high gear and entrepreneurship is all but extinguished by taxation and regulation.

All of that will be secured by courts dominated by left-wing judges — from here to eternity.

And most of the affluent white enablers dupes of the revolution will come to rue their actions. But they won’t be free to say so.

Thus will liberty — and prosperity — die in America.

  1. For the first time I really feel like I’m in Russia in 1917 or Germany in 1933. These forces have been at work for some time, but now they’re brazenly taking over through mob rule. I was on to the hype over Charlottesville as soon as it started and am dismayed at how many “conservative” leaders in the US in 2017 are like the non-Nazi rightists in Germany who went along with what was opportunistic and convenient rather than condemn totalitarian tactics. The neo-Nazis are convenient to the left (and it’s probably no mere coincidence), much like the Communists were to the Reichstag fire that Hitler used as an excuse to expand his powers.

  2. If I may impose on your blog further… some more reading. While much of the GOP and even National Review seems to be falling into the “neo-Nazi scare” trap (much like the “red scare” of the 50s, though that arguably had something to it) it is interesting to note a number of Jewish conservatives, hardly Hitler sympathizers, have bucked the current analysis, I highly recommend:
    Roger Simon, at PJ Media, points out that while there are lone kooks, Klan/Nazis are hardly a major cultural threat: https://pjmedia.com/rogerlsimon/2017/08/12/is-charlottesville-whats-really-going-on-in-the-usa/
    The irrepressible Ben Stein completely (and courageously), deflates the hype here: https://spectator.org/whose-side-is-he-on/
    Another interesting American Spectator piece, by an Orthodox Jew, on Trump and the South:

    (Note that to its credit the American Spectator have opted-out of the leftist-enabling hysteria)

  3. Thanks for the additional commentary and links, which I will follow. The American Spectator is an antidote to the “establishment” worry-warts at National Review. I have the impression that some of them — especially Bill Kristol — would join forces with the Devil if he were deemed respectable.
