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.
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.
