The alchemists working at the Department of Education, at the colleges and universities across the US and in our public schools have once again demonstrated that you cannot turn lead into gold. We have entrusted a generation of young minds to the ministrations of the education bureaucracy and they have returned to us an army of nitwits. And to make matters worse they are self-absorbed, fragile nitwits incapable of critical thought and, therefore, unable to deal with the real world.
The evidence can be found at every protest/riot/exercise in uncivil discourse that have followed the surprising election of Donald Trump. Herewith a few examples.
In Chicago there were a number of handwritten signs letting us know that “Capitalism killed Laquon”. Ponder that thought. An economic theory committing a crime! A quick fact check was made to ensure that the Chicago police officer who has been charged with murder in the death of Laquon McDonald was not named Capitalism…he was not. So we have here an exercise in anthropomorphism…it would be amusing to ask the carrier of one of those signs to spell that word, let alone define it.
A constant refrain from the protesting illuminati focused on the allegation that President-elect Trump (sort of rolls off the tongue does it not?) is a “fascist”. I will give you 10-1 odds that not one of the precious snowflakes throwing that term around can define it. Truth be told we did have a “fascist” running in the 2016 election…Hilliary Clinton.
Fascism is an economic term not unlike capitalism or socialism. Basically fascism allows the private ownership of corporations and property but the businesses are, in effect, managed by the government through laws and regulations. Industry and government work hand in glove. The first national leader to embrace fascism was Benito Mussolini. He was the Prime Minister of Italy from 1922-1943. The application of the theory of fascism by Mussolini was credited with the economic revival of Italy following World War I. It was said the he “made the trains run on time”…which was apparently a minor miracle in Italy. The perception of Mussolini’s success was hailed by many in the US including Franklin Ponzi Roosevelt as well as many of his advisors. In fact FPR adopted fascist policies to ensure that the Great Depression did not end in his lifetime.
So at what target were these benighted protestors aiming. They probably equate fascism with Adolf Hitler who was, in fact, a fascist in economic terms but it escapes the understanding of these ill-educated nitwits that Hitler was the leader of the National SOCIALIST Party known far and wide as the Nazis. It may be that they are trying to backdoor a comparison of Trump to Hitler but it misses the mark unless there is some way to compare “The Art of the Deal” and “Mein Kampf”. I may have missed that parallel entirely unless a plan to erase all of Jewry from Europe is akin making the best business deal possible.
And there is of course the all purpose pejorative…racist. Any disagreement with Obama makes one a racist. Any suggestion that (Some) Black Lives Matter is a disruptive influence renders a person racist. Any check on immigration, Syrian or Mexican, suggests a subtle but still detectable racism. Since when did Islam become a race? The answer may be that in the liberal mind we are all either progressive or racist as they are mutually exclusive. Want evidence that walls work… you must remember that the Chinese built a wall 2000 years ago and there are no Mexicans in the land of Mao.
Many of the demonstrators were chanting that Trump is not their President. That can be easily remedied by contacting their favorite airline and winging off to some other more attractive and politically friendly (dare I say) nation. Perhaps Greenland would suffice what with the coming global thaw and all. Imagine owning the very first vineyard in Ingrid Land.
But these pale to insignificance when compared to the anguish caused by the suggestion that Trump might call BS on the fraud that is man-made global climate change. It was originally global warming but the warming has stopped and some climatologists, including many in Russia, are predicting 250 years of global cooling. Do we build more coal plants to fight the cold? Some protestors are convinced that they have no future because the earth will be a wasteland in 30 years. The transition should be seamless however as they are already quite comfortable living in an intellectual wasteland. Their prophet Leonardo DiCaprio has even produced a documentary entitled “Before the Flood” which depicts the pending chamber of horrors predicted by the likes of Al Gore. Is it true that Noah is a technical consultant for the film?
This last subject, however, has a deeper meaning. You may have noted the hue and cry about the alleged presence of “white nationalists” on the Trump team. Even the dim-witted Harry Reid tried to get on board with this one but he has a great deal of trouble with polysyllabic words such that white nationalists became white supremacists. He may have been carried back to the giddy days when the Klan was the military arm of the Democrat Party or, having to use his one-eyed squint to read his index cards, he may just have been confused by the big words.
In any case the word nationalist seems to cause some consternation to members of the progressive left (there is an oxymoron). A nationalist is the opposite of a globalist and the left is in thrall of the concept of one world government. This is evidenced by a driving desire to have the world run by unelected bureaucrats. The EU is the test drive for a world without national boundaries. This test drive, however, requires a large number of crash test dummies. The Brexit vote was the EU equivalent of the Trump victory. The UK seems to have determined that the EU is, in fact, the worlds largest fun house. It is managed by a coterie of bureaucrats housed in Brussels and it is fortunate, indeed, for the governed that these self proclaimed “best and brightest” have the management of the fun house on a firm economic footing. With Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain (PIGS) hurtling toward bankruptcy the exit of the UK from the COI (carousel of incompetence) has focused the attention of the EU leadership on the entire house of cards. Italy is now making noises about striking out on a pro-growth domestic program. The final collapse will be epic!
What is called for in this situation is a doomsday scenario that will distract the assembled servitude from the economic disaster that lurks ahead. Enter from Fantasyland the concept of global climate change which will require a concerted international effort to address the issue that could spell the end of world. The UN IPCC will lead the political charge having jettisoned science from the program. This relies on the inane mantra that the science is settled…please ignore the string of erroneous predictions from the climate change community…predictions that Al Gore will soon be able to kayak to the North Pole, rising tides will make the 20 most populous blue counties in the US part of Atlantis, more hurricanes (wrong) and more powerful hurricanes (wrong), and on and on. The purpose is to terrify the masses and get them to accept a global government managed by the likes of George Soros, Barack Obama and the Clintons as well as the entire Muppet cast from the UN. Only a student from today’s universities could believe such nonsense.
Sadly the entire enterprise is off the rails with Brexit and the Trump election victory. Enter Jill Stein from the fever swamp Green Party. It has occurred to this monument to ignorance that she cost Hilliary three states on November 8…Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan and, hence, the election. Had the Green Party vote totals gone to Hilliary it would be Trump demanding a recount…in California. It is difficult to follow her thinking here because thinking is, for her, a completely unnatural act. It may be true that in hindsight she thirsts for the election of a woman devoid of political substance, seeking power for the sake of power, who failed to put forth a single positive program justifying her election (probably because to do so would require acknowledging the abject failure of the incumbent President) and who would bring the sequel to Watergate to the White House. Which is to say that we were saved by Jill Stein much as we were saved in 2000 by Ralph Nader. Thanks Jill! Now go back to counting polar bears.
Here’s a fun fact…if you aggregate the wealth of all the Blacks in America you would have the tenth largest economy in the world. How is that for bigotry!
Some German government officials have actually suggested that German women should cover their heads when they leave the house and be accompanied by a male in order to avoid provoking harassment by Muslim refugees…an ounce of prevention will do the trick.
The first 100 days of the Trump administration will be a dazzling tour de force…stay tuned.
