Rage, rage, against the dying of the white

Robert Frost

Dylan Thomas

It is told that American poet laureate Robert Frost attended a poetry reading by visiting Welsh poet Dylan Thomas.  Frost was seated in the front row and became so envious and enraged that he set his own clothes on fire to distract attention from Thomas and bring the evening to a premature conclusion.  The two men so very very different in personality and outlook, but each had important things to say.

The Road Not Taken


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Events in America and Europe have been trending Leftward not as an organic development but as the result of a well organized cabal kicked off by Soviet thirst for world domination and carried forward by leftists ever since the Evil Empire’s collapse.  That the KGB was all about subversion of the West cannot be doubted in the face massive and mounting evidence, one example among many you see to the right.  Because the Soviets knew that they weren’t strong enough militarily to defeat the free world they chose, right at the outset of their October Revolution, to begin subverting the West.

Now that so-called Democratic Socialism has become trendy all over the American Left it bids fair to become the road we might yet take despite Socialism’s proven legacy of famine, terror, mass murder and utter, abject and endlessly cascading failure.  The one thing Socialism, no matter it is called Liberalism, Progressivism or Marxist Leninism, the one thing it has been really good at is concentrating power and wealth in the hands of a ruthless few at the expense of the many.  The many, it must be said who approved and enables the takeover of their societies before they regretted it.

We tend to think of the leftist trend in America as a home grown phenomenon, and to a large extent it is, but there is a lot of help coming from outside.  A lot of noise has been made about the Russians interfering with our elections. I’m sure they were doing their bit to sow confusion in parts of the electorate that needed no help with that.  But there’s more and worse coming from elsewhere.  The Diplomad, a retired American Foreign Service officer has made trenchant observations about this foreign interference:

The biggest offender? Not Russia, but Mexico. Mexican officials publicly called on Mexicans in the US to oppose Trump; Mexico’s over fifty–yes, fifty–consulates in the US (here) are hot beds of political activity and activism. Millions of illegal and legal aliens largely from Mexico and Central America vote, yes vote. We need to have an in-depth investigation into Mexico’s interference in our elections, an interference that goes well beyond revealing embarrassing DNC texts.

And more recently,

We see this story in the Wall Street Journal (and here) in which Mexican officials, including their diplomats in the US, are seeking to “jam” US courts with contested deportations. The Mexican government has set aside millions of dollars to help illegal Mexican migrants in the US fight efforts to deport them. In addition, Mexico, apparently, is contemplating the grotesque tactic of demanding that we PROVEthat deportees are Mexican citizens before Mexico will accept them. In other words, we have to provide the documentation that Mexico failed to provide its own citizens. Mexican officials are holding meetings in Arizona with US politicians warning them about the harm to US-Mexico relations if illegal aliens are deported or prevented from coming to the US. Mexican officials are openly encouraging activists to block deportations. I find this nothing short of outrageous, but, nevertheless, a clear manifestation of the hostility that has long existed in Mexican officialdom for the USA.

Why are the Donks down with this?  Because they see it as a stepping stone on the road to ultimate power and control.  Here’s one take on it.

Personally I’m against being replaced, especially by hordes of people who have had hundreds if not thousands of years to build great civilizations but built hell holes instead and now want to come here to batten on what we have built and at the same time corrupt it.  Not that I’m any sort of white supremacist, as if the issue were about epidermal melanin.  The issue is, and yes, I know some of you are tired of hearing this, culture.  As much as I love Frost’s poems, I’m going with Thomas on this one.

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Goodnight


Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
