We can only hope and pray that the coronavirus crisis has permanently put an end to this inane idea–if it has enough depth to be an idea, even a toweringly bad one.
Mexico will do better, and our mutual border will be easier to enforce, if we take some of our industry out of Red China and relocate it in Mexico (minus the critical industries that must be brought back home). Jobs for Mexico, just desserts for China.
I’ve begun to fear that America and the rest of the West will learn absolutely nothing from the worldwide coronavirus disaster (unleashed on us by China): that people are either so committed to wicked and insane ideologies, or else just so damned stupid, that their heads might as well be made of wood.
You’d think even the most limited intellect would be able to grasp the concept that hyper-urbanization, jamming people into cities as densely as you can and packing them into mass transit every day, is just asking for another pandemic to mow them down; and you’d think even a Democrat could understand that “open borders” is a potentially suicidal policy.
But I have this creepy, crawly feeling that instead of learning anything, the West’s big shots and opinion-shapers will double down on all the absurd, asinine, and wicked errors that landed us in this mess.
They’ll give us more transgender, more gay rights, more globalism, more socialism, more tyranny, more “diversity,” more Climate Change, more Greta, more Soros–more of everything bad, everything that’s crazy, everything that’s damned. They are either that stupid, that evil, or actually cursed by God. Cursed for the things they did, and allowed to be done, in that horrible 20th century.
What can we do but pray? And speak the truth? And you can already get in trouble for doing those things. But I’m afraid we have to.
The happy hormads next door used to have a home-made sign that said “Patriotism=Scoundrels.” In this, the golden age of unfettered travel, it beats me why they stay here. Certainly America doesn’t need them.
Yeahbut, yeahbut! A World State, man! No borders! Wouldn’t that be great?
There are three deadly delusions pushing our civilization toward a precipice. The pushers don’t care if it goes off the cliff: they want to put their own ideal world where the real one used to be. They know they can’t–unless they first get rid of everything that’s already there.
So we have three major movements, all of them totally irrational, all of them tirelessly pushed and promoted by persons–most of them already politically powerful, and wealthy–who want to own the new utopia: with whoever’s left alive as their sharecroppers.
The transgender movement; climate change hysteria, with its draconian fantastic “remedies” (think Green New Deal); and to round it out, the globalists’ dream of open borders (you need to import chaos to make more chaos). Three apocalyptic horsemen all lined up to knock over what it took centuries and even millenia to build. If you’re looking for a fourth horseman, there are more candidates than I have space to list. He will emerge from that pool of swirling darkness.
The pushers don’t much like a world that they don’t rule, lock, stock, and barrel. They want one in which they are supreme, with any challenge to their authority rendered strictly impossible.
They want to be as gods. They think they’re gods already. But they’re nothing but the devil’s sock puppets, and too puffed-up to know it. They think it’s their plan that they’re working for, their future, their every dream come true. Wait’ll they find out it isn’t.
At some point in history, Almighty God will put a stop to this.
This thought has been bouncing around inside my brain for several days.
Far Left Crazy in America owns the Democrat Party, the teachers’ unions, the colleges and universities, Hollywood, the nooze media–and that’s a lot of important stuff to own. They own it lock, stock, and barrel.
And they use it, every hour of every day, to try to Fundamentally Transform America and win the rest of us over to their pet causes. Open borders. Transgender. Man-Made Climate Change. Hate speech laws. Free college. Free stuff galore. But no more private homes (except for them), no more air travel (except for them), no more privately-owned cars (except for them), and no more air conditioning (except for them). They think we ought to be in favor of this program; and so they’re at us, night and day, rain or shine, trying to get us to swallow it.
And yet for all that effort, all that passion, they just can’t seal the deal. People who are not Democrat Congressloons, college professors, brainless movie stars, or angry sex-obsessed weirdos simply don’t believe in any of that stuff and just don’t want it. No, sunshine, we don’t believe the world is going to end in 12 years unless we give up all our freedoms and let you rule us. No, we don’t believe it rained on the rocks a zillion years ago and the rocks came alive, doo-dah, doo-dah. We are normal people, and you don’t have a thing to offer us.
Oh, they keep telling us they’re the ones who’re winning, they’re on the right side of history, public opinion is slowly but surely coming over to their side–but they don’t act like they believe it themselves. For instance, they insist the public is now overwhelmingly in favor of “gay marriage.” But do you see them making any attempt to legislate it? Nope–it’s court rulings or nothing. They can’t get public support for any of their wacko schemes; they’ve always got to go running to a court to get their way imposed on us by unelected judges.
This is a presidential election year, and what won’t they do to get some Democrat socialist nut job into the White House? And what will they do if they fail again, and by a much bigger margin than they failed in 2016?
A lot of these leftids are genuinely crazy. This could be a dangerous year.
It reminds me of the Roman Emperor Honorius pulling the legions out of Britain and telling the citizens, “Look to your own defenses.” At least he didn’t have to say, “While we stay here and just sit around playing Old Maid while the barbarians eat you alive.”
A government that won’t defend its citizens has no reason for existing.
Are you thinking what I’m thinking–about Democrats and border security?
My sister went to see a financial consultant, and as they talked about ways she might manage her money, he remarked, “All right, this is a good time because the economy is going really good”–here he paused to smirk–“but no one likes Trump!”
She walked out of that meeting, not wanting to do business with a lout who felt entitled to throw in a gratuitous bit of political snobbery, completely uncalled-for, completely beside the point. But hey, that’s liberals.
Because they are convinced they’re the smartest people in the world, they’re like somebody who comes into your living room and pees on your rug–and gets all bent out of shape if you object, like you should’ve thanked him for it. After all, you’re just ordrinary dum peple. You should be grateful to them for doing your thinking for you.
Hillary Clinton says “civility” can only return after Democrats regain control of the government and successfully impose all their wicked and asinine policies. Uh-huh. But civility is gone because they made it go away. Everyone who disagrees with them about anything, no matter how trivial, is a racistbiggithater who must be thoroughly crushed. They’re out to Fundamentally Transform this country, and you’d better get out of the way.
They reject compromise. Okay, fine. Let’s not compromise. Let’s totally defeat them, let’s put the Democrat Party out of business forever–no more socialism, no more open borders, no more transgender, no more live-birth abortion: no more any of it. If we put half the energy into suppressing them as they put into suppressing us, they’d be finished in a week.
If mere boorishness were the worst of their defects, we might live with it. Chalk it up to that’s the way they are, they really can’t help it.
But I don’t think they’re kidding about what they want to do to our country, and I don’t want them to do it. And as much as in me lies, I won’t let them.
P.S.–Three days in a row, now, with no Facebook referrals. I haven’t been notified that I’ve been banned or anything. Do they just do it now without telling you? What gives?
I’m not laughing as much as I ought to at all the krazy krap pouring out of liberals’ minds and mouths these days.
I mean, it should be funny–right?–when liberals demand Open Borders and then freak out when President Trump offers to release hordes of illegal aliens into liberal-run sanctuary cities. Sure, it’s funny. But what’s not so funny is that the leftids’ own towering hypocrisy is completely invisible to them. You offer to give them what they say they want, and then they don’t want it. And so they continue to press for Open Borders for all the rest of us.
Yes, it was high comedy when Mitch McConnell put up the Democrats’ Green New Deal for a vote in the Senate, and they not only cried “Foul!” with wailing and gnashing of teeth–but couldn’t find it in themselves to vote in favor of their own utopian fun pack. That was a hoot. But it’s not funny that they continue to demand all these restrictions for the rest of us.
Fifty-odd “genders” ought to be a scream, and of course we ought to laugh at it. But when they want to make it a criminal offense not to acquiesce to this delusion, that’s not exactly a knee-slapper.
They insist the world is gonna end in just 12 years if we don’t give them everything they want–To Save The Planet, don’t you know–and that ought to have us rolling in the aisles. But their 2016 party platform, the platform their presidential candidate ran on, called for the attorney general to “investigate” the crime of Climate Change Denial–the crime of not believing in their apocalyptic piffle.
Mr. Bean, the Three Stooges, Abbot and Costello, and Laurel and Hardy put together couldn’t match the high goofiness created by liberals today. It’s not just that their ideas are wrong. It’s that their ideas are flagrantly, monumentally, hysterically, out-to-lunch wrong. To the point where we really have to wonder if they’re quite all there.
The thought of them ever again winning an election… Well, that’s not funny at all.
