Train wreck in progress

If it was not clear before, and I’ll argue that it was, just nobody was really paying attention, it is clear now that the entire Progressive project is going off the rails. If at any point in the last few years anybody, including the architects of Leftist Lunacy, thought they had it under control that illusion has been dispelled. The law of unintended consequences is in charge now as events set in motion years ago cascade out of anybody’s control. The Left’s motto seems to be, “We are all going to die, but we do it faster.” Consider:

Multiculturalism is one of the linchpins of correct Leftist doctrine. It asserts that all cultures are good and are to be equally valued, except Western Culture and American culture in particular. So they set about importing gazillions of non-Western people with no intention of even suggesting that they ought to assimilate. No, each proudly maintains its own heritage, asserting its superiority over and demanding ever more concessions from the host culture, else they won’t form the solidly reliable liberal voting blocks they are intended to be.

Most such cultural blocks are content to take what they can get, particularly unearned, taxpayer funded support. But some have the built-in conviction that they are destined to rule and a history of achieving this rule by the use of war. This year again France has been awakened to this fact. It seems unlikely that the ruling elite intends to remain awake any longer than it takes to soothe the peasantry back into somnolence. But the French are awake to the danger, as are a great many Germans, Swedes, Poles and just about everybody else. Why, even Americans are waking up! Masses of people are aroused and seem determined to change the system, which is not at all what the Utopian Dream Masters want.

Here in America the Dream Masters have been pushing for a race war using multiculturalism as pretext. The hoopla with Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, et al is intended to ignite and fan the flames of septic resentment among American Blacks, isolating them and inciting them to violence. #BlackLivesMatter carries the not unintended corollary, #OtherLivesDon’t, particularly White lives. As George Orwell pointed out in Animal Farm, some animals are more equal than others.

Since the black lives matter meme has infected the University of Missouri the contagion has spread to other institutions of higher dementia to such an extent that the professors of Socialist propaganda and Leftist twaddle can’t even indoctrinate their charges. This has had the unintended consequence of exposing the university system as the preferred (because it is so expensive!) means of turning the cream of American youth into irrational, whiny losers utterly unfit to be entrusted with their own pocket lint, much less the future of the nation. Pushback from this has already begun, not least from the young people who hope for more than Dreams From Mein Fuhrer in their future, and the parents who fund their kids’ “education.” It will only grow.

Everywhere the proponents of the Blue Model Assault on AmericaTM have the blues. If Conservatives and Republicans have been discouraged that is as nothing to the panic that is beginning to overwhelm those who have dedicated their whole lives to the destruction of America’s republican form of government and its replacement with the Worker’s Paradise. This not the time to rest, we’ve been doing quite enough of that. Now is the time to go on the offensive and knock the Dream Masters down once and for all.

How to do that?

For starters, make an appointment with your local elected officials for a friendly meeting in which you express your desire that you don’t want foreign invaders, be they refugees or not, to be resettled in your community at taxpayer expense. Attend your city council meeting and make the same point firmly but politely. Network with the people you find there, form alliances and devise plans to cooperate on issues important to them even if they are not that important to you.

Get information on the classes offered by the Center for Self Governance in your area. Take those classes and take control of your government back.

More bull by the tail

Race is a taboo subject – unless you are Black speaking to  non-Blacks, Hispanic speaking to non-Hispanics, Asian speaking to non-Asians or a Democrat speaking to anyone at all.  If you are not in any of the categories just mentioned, or worse, White, shut your pie hole and cast down your eyes because you, yes YOU, are a racist oppressor – by tautology.

The accusation of racism is a political cudgel used to discredit anyone not a member of these favored groups, an accusation which once made need never be proven  and can never be disproved.  The accusation itself comes complete with its own facts, its own judgement and its own sentence; it nullifies any defense, including any counter accusation for only the chosen non-categories above are entitled to make it.  A white can never make the accusation of a non-white for if he does the stigma applies to him in the same way as if any non-white had made the accusation first.  Because none of these favored non-white categories are, were or could ever be racist, which leads to the absurd but widely believed idea that race determines who can be racist.

Once the term ‘racism’ meant “a belief that human races have distinctive characteristics that determine their respective cultures, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.”  The march of progress subsequently deleted the idea of culture from that definition and focused on only the most superficial physical characteristics; multiculturalism means that all cultures are equal, another patent   absurdity.  Finally in our own enlightened age the accusation of racism has come to mean, “You are committing thought crime by not repeating the approved politically correct nostrums and I don’t like it.  Since I am unable to rationally and logically refute your points I will call you names until you either change you position and toe the PC party line (either because no such refutation is logically possible or because I don’t have the intellectual or rhetorical skills to do so), or I make you cry and you shut up and go home.”  Strangely, this is not bullying, but that is one of the new rules of racism.

Nor should it go unremarked that there is no little irony that the accusation of racism is almost exclusively a weapon used by the Democratic Party, which supported enslaving the blacks and opposed the abolitionists, to blacken the Republican Party which was founded by abolitionists and successfully prosecuted a policy of racial equality.  The Left has brought about a world of Orwellian moral inversion, which deserves examination at another time.

Racism, real racism, not the political weapon masquerading as racism, is alive and well in the United States.  It is growing, in no small part precisely because it has been used as a political weapon.  The Left and the Democratic Party have sought and successfully obtained political advantage by inflaming racial passions.  By so doing it has set before the victims their own policies have created, abetted and enlarged the idea that their troubles were rather the result of racist enmity by the Democrats’ political enemies.  It has pounded that drum unceasingly, has created a whole race baiting industry proclaim racial blame from the rooftops, has relentlessly fanned the flames of racial discord, it has protected and bankrolled the race mongers, it has hysterically marketed such white-on-anybody-that’s-not-white violence as it can find to both further diminish the self confidence of the racially neutral and inflame the rage of the victim’s racial group and finally it has hidden the racial violence that it has fomented.

That racial violence has increased to the point where it can no longer be successfully contained or covered up, though it is not yet widely known.  Divide and conquer has become divide and destroy.  The problem has become so great, in my opinion, that a simple political fix is no longer possible.  It is not yet politically possible to even talk about this openly, much less devise and implement a solution.  It may be that it will never be possible to openly discuss this before an explosion creates such fear and animosity that discussion is not possible.

One of the great unpalatable and therefore seldom mentioned truths is that responsibility is with the one who sees.  Knowledge is power, but only if acted upon.  Here responsibility is distinguished from mere blaming, which is the antithesis of responsibility.  There is a tendency in the perceived absence of viable solutions to avoid opening cans of worms, especially when it is well known that blame will be leveled both for opening the can and for the existence of the worms.  Still, the discussion must be opened, and done in such a way that there is accountability, correct understanding of the problem and many minds working together to devise and implement workable solutions on many fronts.

Will the Republican Party, with its noble tradition of racial equality, be equal to the task before it?  How should we begin?  Your ideas solicited in the comments.

Another Jihad Jamal – oops, the story got out

Here’s an important principle: When something important is going on silence is a lie.  Here is something important that seems to have slipped by the censors: “Media Belatedly Mentions that Gunman Who Opened Fire in a Church on Easter Left Behind a Koran,”  which we have from the Ashtabula Star Beacon by way of Jihad Watch.

ASHTABULA — The make of the gun, knives and the terror felt by Easter Sunday church-goers the day Reshad Riddle is accused of killing his father surfaced at his  preliminary hearing Tuesday in Municipal Court.

City Solicitor Michael Franklin called three city police officers to the witness stand to share  their recollections of what occurred after Riddle allegedly shot Richard Riddle at point blank range outside of Hiawatha Church of God in Christ. Riddle has been charged with aggravated murder, having weapons under disability and carrying a concealed weapon.

 

Riddle,  28,  who appearedin shackles, an orange jail jumpsuit and a bullet-proof vest, sat at the defense table flanked by public defender Joseph Humpolick.

. . .

The first witness, Patrolman Jay Janek said when he arrived on the scene, the elder Riddle was on the ground bleeding profusely, with an obvious gunshot wound to the head.

“He was deceased,” Janek said.

Police found Reshad Riddle inside the church, standing at the podium, he said.

“He had the gun in the air,” Janek said. “He had several knives on him … we later discovered the Koran on the podium.”

. . .

Felt also said Riddle spoke about religious passages in the Koran.

Humpolick again pressed for details.

“He found solace in his religion after he shot his father,” Felt said.

With no further witnesses, Franklin entered two exhibits: a copy of the defendant’s past felony convictions, justifying the charge of having a weapon while under disability, and the sentencing from the conviction.

Humpolick called no witnesses, but moved to dismiss the case.

Moved to dismiss!!!!  This ought to be a whole 2nd story all by itself leading to Humpolick being disbarred.  Bet he gets a nice fat check from CAIR.

Kudos to Shelly Terry, the story’s original author, and to the Star Beacon for defying the censors.  Let’s hope that Terry isn’t fired for the offense.
