I wish I had good news. I wish I could tell you that all these nutjobs-racist-socialist scum will cease to exist come November 9th and we go prepare ourselves for Thanksgivings with the family and then a peaceful Christmas.
It is not gonna happen. It will actually get worse.
This past weekend we saw how the political ultra-left had no problems violating the Civil Rights of people who wanted nothing more than the simple right to exercise their Freedom of Assembly at a Trump Rally in Arizona.
I do not care if you like Trump, hate him or could not care one way or the other: You cannot “protect” Civil Rights by violating Civil Rights.”
The lack of Law Enforcement (Ferguson Effect) and Judicial response (DOJ political blindness to left-wing misdeeds) to this, past and future events will embolden the Socialist Mutawwi to go further up and including violence against those who they deem politically impure. They are betting (and rightly so) on the common decency of people and the existing law system that gives them equal footing with the rest of us, but will use it to subvert what they consider an evil and unequal society.
What we are seeing now is simply the results of many years of preparations. It is the culmination of the 60s movement who went on to take positions within the government and Academia, the last one possibly the most influential as they now created another set of young Useful Idiots who believing themselves immortal, will be the cannon fodder in days ahead.
J. Kb. wrote about Orwell recently and it is scary un-funny how much IngSoc is now commonplace. Definitions change to accommodate a political story rather than serve as guide of thought. History itself has to be changed or suppressed (“We‘ve always been at war with Eastasia“) and the record changed or better yet, memory-holed. We have seen this being applied by the Gun Control Community with a small amount of success when they move the goalposts and change definitions and even how they change how call themselves and what they do like Handgun Control Inc to Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and from Gun Control to “Gun Safety.”
And don’t think short game. The Ultra Left thinks and plans for the very long game as they have been doing till now. Will they achieve their goals by November? Nope, doubtfully. Even if Hillary gets elected and re-elected and this batch of useful idiots has worn out, a new batch will be coming out of colleges ready to take their place and continue the Mutwwai. Think about it, Would Bernie Sanders be even considered as Primary candidate 20 years ago? Obama? There is your answer.
So, what will we see? More in the form of uncivil disturbances. They will create episodes in which their own will be hurt or killed to claim status victim and demand “justice” from an oppressive and militarized Law Enforcement. They will also demand a softer/kinder/gentler Law Enforcement (…wait, they already are doing so… never mind) which will result in less actual safety and leaving the population at the mercy of the Socialist Mutawwi. Expect riots and arson to go unchecked like it happened in Baltimore. And when the Socialist Mutawwi go home after a nice day of Social Justice imparted on the oppressive corner Bodega owner because he decided to support for the none-approved candidate or cause, the standard criminal scum will show up to reap on the lack of cops on the streets. Yes, it is not a bug, it is a feature. People do not complain much about political change when they are victims of unchecked crime.
“Damn it, Miguel! You are just making paranoid shit up.” Actually this has happened before in many countries and I lived the process in Venezuela with a few different adjustments to fit the local culture. I guess I do not have to explain how well the country is doing under the Latino version of Bernie Sanders and his Bots.
Do I expect the US to end up like Venezuela, Zimbabwe, etc? No, a much different culture to begin with and a very different economy. That does not mean there will be no strife, no clashes with bodies decorating the streets: There will be plenty but probably it will not rise to a former Yugoslavia-type of event. If I have learned one thing about being American is that we are polite to an extreme, but once that extreme is reached, you better bring out the checkbook and write HELL where it says PAY TO THE ORDER OF.
You think I am kidding and that there is not a lot of silent anger barely being held in check? Then explain the Trump phenomenon.
