They pit the lifers against the new boy and the young against the old. The black against the white. Everything they do is to keep us in our place.A couple of days ago before Christmas I wrote a really searing blog post on the complicity of our so-called "leaders" on the LEO assassinations in New York. I decided, upon reflection, not to post it. I thought I needed to make some different points...yes, Barry and Eric and Al and Bill are complicit in the delegitimizing of the police that led directly to the deaths. The concept of delegitimizing the agencies of representative government by the creation of chaos is one of the standard — and most reliable — tools of the leftist/fascist revolutionary.
-- BLUE COLLAR, 1978
The idea is to "prove" that the government no longer has control of its own streets or that, in fact, the legitimate authorities are actually agents of oppression (the war on cops); to "prove" that the legal structures of the representative government no longer work (the war on the courts and the grand jury system); to "prove" that the legal protections of the old system are insufficient responses to the "new" social environment (the war on due process waged in many arenas, including on college campuses on the so-called "rape culture"); to "prove" that the leftist/fascist concept of "social justice"cannot be met by the existing representative government and therefore demands a new system.
Any of this sound familiar? Is that the sniiiiiiick of a guillotine blade I hear? The Czar Nicholas II fleeting St. Petersburg? Che and Fidel triumphantly rolling into Havana on 1 January 1959? There are lots more examples — c'mon people! There are books and books written about this stuff, manuals with handy, proven techniques for destabilizing a First World country (not the least of which is Rules for Radicals; I might also suggest Anarchism: A Collection of Revolutionary Writings by Peter Kropotkin, a formative book for me).
Do I think the Great Fool in the White House is orchestrating this? No…he's just not that smart. However, the race hustlers like Al Sharpton and the masterminds behind Obama's agenda such as terrorist Bill Ayers, who practically invented our current President, know this as well as I do. But the "great progressive moment" in American politics is now in shambles. It turns out that contrary to the Newsweek cover on February 2009, which trumpeted "We Are All Socialists Now," we aren't. Americans aren't moving to the left, don't want to be a prole the new Socialist Republic of Amerika and are pretty sick and tired of the whole bucket of crap delivered by the Democratic Party.
We would like our country back, thank you.
But we have now entered an era of unprecedented danger. Unfortunately, progressivism never dies. The socialist/fascist/National Socialism/share-the-wealth/"social justice" concepts of the ruling oligarchy "managing" the rest of us poor bastards off the sweat of our own labor is like the monster in every movie since CARRIE (the original, not the wretched remake)...no matter how many times you kill it, the dead hand bursts from the grave and pulls us back down.
This from Michael Walsh at PJ Media:
The men behind Obama took a calculated gamble in 2008 that the nation was ready for the first post-American president, a man with no meaningful cultural roots in the nation he would profess to lead. They relied on the intrinsic good-heartedness of the electorate to show their lack of prejudice in voting for a man with an exotic Arabic/Muslim name only seven years after the atrocity of Sept. 11. They counted on the innate good will of the American people, judged that the time was right for a black president, and then went out and found the only half-black candidate who had absolutely nothing to do with the black American experience and ran him as an avatar of black America.... America was warned, early on, that beneath the smiling facade of Barack Hussein Obama was a very angry man. The smile and the shoeshine got him elected but since that day he has waged unremitting war on the country as founded, pillorying the nation, putting it in the dock, and making us all atone for its sins. Obama’s is a presidency-as-payback, and the “transformation” is meant to ensure that it is permanently hobbled. The animus positively radiates from him.
I think many of Obama's most ardent followers thought for sure that by Year 6 we'd be in the Workers' Paradise, with Obamaphones and caviar for everyone...except those of us working to pay for it all, of course. Our role would be to "check our privilege," shut up and keep paying taxes.
And now those most ardent followers, especially the media, for who the phrase useful idiots seems to be tailor-made, are really really pissed off. No Obamaphones! No social justice! The narrative is failing! For the media sycophants, the race hustlers, the hate America Faux revolutionaries, that dacha by the sea is fading away as we speak. For the millions of college students warehoused in "big box" hotbeds of political correctness, hey, a future of work is so much less fun than chanting rehashed revolutionary slogans that were old, hoary and false when their professors chanted them in 1967, smoking dope much better than their professors smoked in 1967 and getting laid. Whoops! Scratch that last one. Unless you can get a sworn affidavit from the member of the opposite sex that he/she/any of the 37 "genders" referenced on FaceBook and have video proof of "yes means yes" compliance at each step of the activity previously known as "sex," you're screwed. Well, metaphorically speaking.
In his 1938 text The Anatomy of Revolution (you've read it, right?) Crane Brinton noted that the revolutionary "moment" occurs not at at the lowest ebb of a culture, but rather when rising expectations are thwarted. Progressives rode the rising expectation of "fundamental change" right up until they ran smack into the American exceptionalism. Despite what one might read from the pampered elites at Brandeis University -- "Amerikka needs an intifada...enough is enough" -- the proletariat are not rising up in support of the progressive agenda. Quite the opposite.
With professional "protesters" fueled by a sense of rage over lost opportunities and missing Obamaphones, enabled by a 24-hour news cycle controlled by our blood enemies and given tacit approval by our supposed leaders, we potentially face a level of violence not seen since the 1960s. And that's not even counting the increased threat from those other fascists for the Middle East!
If I may slaughter a quote by W. H. Auden, "I smell blood and a generation of prominent madmen."
