In the space of two weeks we’ve witnessed a most unusual spectacle unfold right before our eyes:
– We stopped worrying about North Korea and the threat posed by Islamic extremism.
– We began a national debate over a civil war that a) none of us participated in nor did any of our living ancestors because b) it happened more than 150 years ago.
– The Russia-Trump collusion theme all but vanished from media coverage.
That’s right. Islamic extremists just killed a whole bunch of people – we’re talking Chicago weekend murder rate numbers here – across Europe, and instead we’re worried about the Civil War. Kim Jong Un for the time being decided not to hit us with nuclear weapons but still retains the capability and unpredictability that ought to warrant our concerns. Yet we’re fixated on an armed conflict that occurred back when Korea was a singular nation ruled by the Joseon Dynasty with Cheoldong as the monarch on the throne.
Incredibly, the alleged threat posed to our democracy and our way of life by Russia somehow drifted almost completely off all media coverage. The same Russia many Democrats said we ought to bomb all the sudden didn’t warrant a footnote anymore.
I bring up both Cheoldong and Democrats deliberately. Cheoldong was illiterate when summoned to assume the throne – he was unable to read even the letter sent to him explaining as much. There’s a long story behind that which I won’t go into here. Democrats have grown illiterate as well, but in a different sense. The underlying story is quite simple.
Democrats don’t know how to real world anymore. At least as far as doing anything constructive is concerned. That’s why Charlottesville happened, Boston almost happened, and in about three weeks Austin is supposed to happen according to left-leaning websites.
Word on the street is, Robert Mueller’s investigation is wrapping up soon. The results will be the same as all the other investigations conducted since August of last year into Russian electoral collusion:
There is no evidence Donald Trump or anyone involved in the Trump campaign colluded with Russians to win the election.
That’s why the singular debate in America today is over a war that happened before the automobile and airplanes were invented and when Alaska was imperial Russia’s most eastern territory. Now that the Russia thing’s a dud, Democrats need something else to energize their base. What’s the number one thing Democrats always turn to when their base needs a little energizing? Race.
It’s a perfect go-to thing for Democrats to turn to. For their race-based agenda to work, Democrats don’t need to actually do or solve any real or perceived problem. If they did, then they wouldn’t be able to play the race card; without a race card to play Democrats know their base will turn elsewhere. The bar is set very low for Democrats – all they have to do is keep their people angry and in need. Doubt it?
– Have someone download the text of any three campaign speeches given by any three Democratic Presidential candidates from Lyndon Johnson to the present.
– Have the person that downloaded those speeches omit any reference to the candidate’s name or any other names unique to the year in which the speech was written and delivered.
– Read the speeches.
– See if you can then tell which Democrat said which thing in which speech.
You won’t be able to tell the difference between the speeches.
I tried something similar last year. I pulled a Hillary Clinton speech and a Lyndon Johnson speech. There were large passages that were virtually identical. Use of the “n” word was one of the few things that gave a Lyndon Johnson speech away. Pronouns give away a Hillary speech.
Expect then for civil war statues and the like to dominate discussion until at least the 2017 Virginia gubernatorial election in November. At what cost?
As I mentioned, Democrats these days are illiterate. They fail to understand simple yet vital constructs such as E Pluribus Unum. They instead prefer Ex Uno Plures or, out of one many. They prefer a people subdivided by as many categories as they can imagine along with the notion of self-identification into different categories just to ensure everyone is as divided as possible. Then they stir that pot, pitting group against group even if it means our city streets roil with riots on a third world level these days.
It’s a recipe for disaster. Disaster is what you get when illiterates are entrusted with things that exceed their level of understanding.
