I was thinking about my post about carpetbaggers.
I realized that is the wrong word for what these people want to do.
They do not come in search of profit.
They come to impose their will on others by volume of numbers, subjugating the existing native culture which they think is backwards, uneducated, and savage under their more enlightened one.
They are true colonialists. They see Middle America the way the French saw the dark heart of Africa or the English saw India.
The Democrat attitude might as well be sorteneed to “Take up the Progressive’s burden.”
I have never understood this attitude myself. I just don’t have the arrogance to want to impose my will by domination on others. I just want your be left alone, maybe to engage in mutual trade if the other party is so willing.
I really think that’s why Congressman Swalwell can joke about nukining us. The every colonial nation committed atrocities while pacifying the natives. Even our own nation did horrible things, such as the Trail of Tears under command of yet to be America’s first Democrat President, Andrew Jackson.
If the Calvary could shell women and children with rapid fire artillery at Wounded Knee, they could drop heavy ordinance on us from bombers. The breach loading cannon was the WMD of its day.
We are all savages in their eyes, to be colonized and subjugated or forcibly educated and converted to their ways.
