It’s getting crazier and crazier out there, and at some point it’s going to bring our whole civilization crashing down. You can only go so far, insisting that some fat guy in a wig and wearing a dress is a woman, before you’re no longer spouting poppycock on purpose but spouting it because you don’t know the difference between horse-schiff and reality anymore.
A few years earlier, a member of the Ontario “Human Rights” Commission made news by suggesting that people’s circles of friends weren’t “diverse” enough and the government should step in and assign friendships. They took that off their website when people saw it and got infuriated.
But see, that’s our problem. We never get mad enough to put these Far Left psychos and tinpot tyrants out of business. The heat always dies down, and then they’re back at it with the crazy schiff. They’ll never stop until we stop them.
Well… yeah! You guys, for starters. I’m plenty worried about you.
Facebook urges users to “get advice from people who escaped violent extremist groups” and offers a link to a bunch of leftids called “Life After Hate,” who claim “to help people leave far-right groups.” Sheesh.
Let me get off a letter to Facebook while I think of it–because it so happens I do know somebody who seems to be becoming an extremist.
“Dear Facebook–I am very concerned for my friend Joe Biden, who has spent an awful lot of time with Chinese Communist Party members–and we all know who’s the most violent gang of extremists on the planet, don’t we? Yup, that would be the CCP, the most prolific mass murderers in all of human history. But Joe thinks they’re swell! And contacting Life After Hate won’t help because they think communism’s groovy, too.
“How can I get Joe back onto the path of sanity? Please advise!”
This was one of the iconic images of my childhood: Soviet dictator Nikita Khrushchev banging his shoe on the rostrum at the UN General Assembly. He was freaking out because they’d just shot down an American spy plane over Russia. Gasp! Oh, no! Did you say a spy plane? You mean you spied on us? [Bangs shoe on podium]
The hypocrisy was not lost on many people. Not even on 11-year-old kids.
Today, somehow I find it impossible to believe in the sincerity, or even the sanity, of some paunchy, middle-aged white liberal sitting behind a posh desk at The Guardian yelling and banging his shoe because there aren’t enough Minority central characters in children’s fiction and the government had ought to do something about it! Like dictate the content of books before they’re written! They could set up a special government agency just for that.
And in the interests of having it both ways, Hasbro has left the toys themselves virtually unchanged.
Mark Simone says that if anything can kill the Far Left Crazy, it’ll be this absurd fetish of being mortally offended by totally trivial and silly things… like the “gender” of Mr./Mrs./Ms./Fhz. Potato Head. If that’s what gets you cranking, there’s obviously something wrong with you and no one should listen to you anymore.
The whole Woke Idol being cast down, in the end, by Mr. Potato Head…
How could this have possibly failed to catch on? Well, it was competing with “gender” for center state, and then along came COVID. I mean, no one can juggle all the Far Left Crazy schemes without dropping a few of them.
I find it a useful rule of thumb, when encountering any New & Exciting Great Idea, to ask “What would happen if everybody did it?” If the answer to that question is either “We lose our liberty” or “We go extinct,” this this is a stupid Great Idea and ought to be rejected.
Some of you are bound to say, “Well, we elected ’em!” Actually, we didn’t. A powerful lot of cheating had to be done, to put them in the driver’s seat. You don’t think Americans are in favor of any of their policies, do you? If so, I’d love to hear which ones.
May the Lord God Almighty, the righteous judge, avenge us.
We see these things in history, we see them today in totalitarian countries like China, North Korea, Venezuela and the rest. But we never thought to see them here.
Out of a 2020 national election that stank to high heaven, we have lost all our checks and balances and are saddled with a tyrannical leftist regime that seems bent on pursuing insane policies that will damage America severely–policies that no one but the Far Left Crazy supports: higher taxes, tearing down our borders, promoting and expanding abortion, etc., etc.
The most shocking thing about it is that there appears to be a body of opinion that’s convinced that it would be kind of nice if our country were to be “transformed” into something more closely resembling Communist China and those other countries mentioned above. At least they’ve said so. Crushing people for having the “wrong” political opinion, silencing dissent–and forbidding even mere questions–and spying on each other, surrendering the streets of our cities to thugs from Antifa and Black Lives Matter, aborting more babies, pushing “transgender” as if their lives depended on it: all of these have been openly, vigorously, advocated by Democrats. They’ve thrown off all pretense of loving our country. They hate it, they despise it, and they want to turn it into a neo-Soviet Union.
How did we wind up with these?
We don’t know what to do about it. We are some 75 million strong, but maybe that should read “75 million weak.” Whatever strength we have, we’re at a loss for how to use it.
We have nothing left but our prayers, and our trust in the power, justice, and righteousness of Almighty God.
I am stumped. I have to write a Newswithviews column today and I’m stumped.
Liberty and the Constitution are melting away before our eyes. No more checks and balances: Far Left Crazy has the whole government sewed up. Every institution which we trusted in has failed us, if not actively betrayed us. In the end, Donald Trump stood alone against a deeply corrupted, anti-American ruling class. Once they finish getting him out of the way, they’ll be coming for the rest of us.
What do we do? There are 75 million of us. There must be something we can do to protect ourselves and our country.
We don’t know what to do. And events are moving so swiftly, the Big Lie is like a freakin’ tidal wave, we are buffeted from one side to another, that we can hardly think straight.
Ideas, anyone? I’ve got to write the column this afternoon. Suggestions, anyone?
