China Joe barely managed to stumble through his “press conference”…where the questions and answers were all rehearsed. Not sure how long they keep him at it – to be sure, his own people want to keep him in as long as possible and Harrris’ people want to wait until 1/21/23 to preserve two-term viability for her…but the man is clearly on borrowed time.
The fact that they are letting BLM and Antifa skate while holding Proud Boys without bail lets you know that the two-tiered justice system is for real. We are second class citizens in our own country. We will have to fix that – but until we do, always have a care what you say and who you say it to. The authorities will railroad people and there are people out there – maybe even among your family and friends – who will report you to the authorities. Don’t get paranoid, but do be careful.
Mayor Pete wants to impose a mileage tax on our cars. There are two reasons for this:
- As cars go electric, less gas tax revenue.
- The Left hates the fact that we can go wherever we want.
The preferred future for the Left is that we all live in tiny apartments built in high rise buildings in densely packed cities and that we use bicycles or public transport to get around. If this sounds familiar, it is: it is how most Chinese live these days. That is their ideal – though they also want us to stop eating food and switch over to bug paste (I’m not kidding). Remember, they hate the entire idea of owning property or having a private life.
There is starting to be State-level push back against Critical Race Theory. This is good, but also way too late. I first came across the species of thought in the late 1980s and I initially dismissed it as absurd. That was a mistake: these people are serious. The primary component about CRT is that anything opposed to it is by definition racist. It is the perfect vehicle for imposing Marxism – you can’t actually argue against it. So, it must be merely opposed. The best thing we can do is via budgetary control over State colleges. We can’t stop Harvard with its billions from imposing it on students dumb enough to attend…but we can stop the State colleges from imposing it. But even that is just a first step – it must be banned.
Yes, I know: Constitutional issues there. But by hook or by crook, the teaching of Critical Race Theory must be made a crime in the United States. It is that pernicious. We have learned that it was a mistake to allow Marxism access to the American body politic. It must be exiled to the fringes as much as Nazism and Fascism have been. Ultimately, we cannot be secure in our lives, liberties and property as long as Critical Race Theory is considered morally licit.
A bronze statue of Greta Thunberg is to be erected at a UK university, and it is causing all sorts of outrage. But do understand what this is for: they are tearing down the old statues (it happens in the UK, too – pretty much every hero of Britain’s past is on the path to being cancelled) and erecting statues to the new heroes. This is common after the Revolution – and though it took decades, the entire West fell to the Revolution. This is something that everyone has to get into their minds: you are no longer defending. You lost. You are now counter-attacking. This is counter-revolution. We are trying to undo what’s been done and restore (at least in part) what was before.
