You cannot reason a man out of a position he has not reasoned himself into. — Jonathan Swift
People detached from reality are virtually impossible to change. We cannot change them, and they cannot change themselves. Working hard to get ahead is called “white supremacy.” Sloth is rewarded with “free stuff.” Wisdom is called bigotry; foolish recklessness is called “wokeness.”
George Soros always manages to get what he wants with his money. He has used his money to elect prosecutors who will not prosecute rioters, looters or any other crime the consider “petty.” It all adds up not to pettiness but to demoralization and destruction of a country. Just what Soros wants.
CEO’s of large corporations are deep into political correctness. Cisco gave $5 Million to Black Lives Matter, a group that is increasingly becoming a domestic terrorist organization. Just ask Lucy Holsey, black woman who owns a Deli in the Bronx. She said, “They’re lying . . . I’m black, look what [they] did to my store.” The looters were mostly if not all black.
They didn’t care a thing about Lucy Holsey’s black life.
A terrific essay at America Thinker by Selwyn Duke, Devolution to Revolution: An Already Demoralized U.S. is Now Being Destabilized:
The two destabilizing events recently occurring back-to-back, the response to the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, and the George Floyd rioting, illustrate well how America is now institutionally incapable of making decisions in her own best interests. That is, the overreaction to the disease and under-reaction to the rioting reflect a country long demoralized.
Moreover, if that’s not troubling enough, know that this is a state of being that usually leads to tyranny.
We’d had pandemics before – ones causing more death, especially when adjusted for population – but we’d never before embraced lockdowns, a cure worse than the disease.
But at least the disease was a relative unknown; riots are not. People the world over know how to deal with riots, and this isn’t by letting them metastasize so thugs can run wild, hurt the innocent and destroy the nation. Yet our “leaders” fiddled while the country burned, motivated by moral confusion and weakness, and some, most certainly, by ulterior motives…
… Some of what’s occurring today is orchestrated by well-funded “astroturfing” puppeteers behind the scenes, but this isn’t new, either. Remember, Democrat operatives were caught on hidden camera in 2016 confessing to how they were fomenting violence at Trump rallies. One of them, Scott Foval, actually said, “We’re starting anarchy here.”
Yet the mainstream culture has become so demoralized that much of this aid is overt. Just consider all the corporations that support, and even donate money to, Black Lives Matter and other similarly disposed groups. Cisco, for example, gave $5 million to BLM & Co.
When a country’s destabilization becomes severe enough, it can move into subversion’s next stage: crisis. This period only takes weeks and is when a revolution occurs that can sweep the puppeteers into power. This absolutely is the goal of the most Machiavellian authors of our destabilization…
Democrats have a lot to answer for but we won’t get anywhere with Democrats. See Johnathan Swift’s epigram at the top of this post. It’s the GOP we need to call and send our sentiments to. The GOP disagrees with all the looting and rioting but they never seem to want to do anything about it. They must be fearful of how the media will treat them. If so, that’s really dumb. The media couldn’t possibly treat Republicans any worse than they do now.
