Not Good: ‘a majority of 56% holds the view that American society is racist’

The left is winning the culture war.  A new Wall Street Journal / NBC poll shows that 56% of Americans have become convinced that American society is racist.

This is worrying not only for our nation but for November’s election.  When a majority have come to believe that we are a bunch of racists with racist systems, we have lost the culture battle, if not the war.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Voters in growing numbers believe that Black and Hispanic Americans are discriminated against, and a majority of 56% holds the view that American society is racist, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.

 

The poll finds that Americans of all races and age groups share significant concerns about discrimination nearly two months after George Floyd, a Black man, was killed in police custody in Minneapolis. Nearly three-quarters of Americans, 71%, believe that race relations are either very or fairly bad, a 16-point increase since February.

 

In other signs of substantial shifts in views on race, more voters see racial bias as a feature of American society and support protests aimed at addressing it. Nearly 60% in the survey said that Black people face discrimination, and just over half said so of Hispanics, about double the shares from 2008. Support has also grown for two of the public responses to concerns about inequality: the Black Lives Matter movement and professional athletes’ practice of kneeling during the national anthem.

There is an interesting break down by party, however, and unsurprisingly, huge majorities of Democrats believe that black people are discriminated against and that American society is itself racist.

The Wall Street Journal continues:

In its deepest look at race in America in two decades, the Journal/NBC News poll also shows members of the two parties hold sharply different opinions about the extent of racial discrimination.

 

An overwhelming majority of Democrats, 90%, said Black people are discriminated against, whereas 26% of Republicans agreed. A similarly large share of Democrats, 82%, believe American society is racist, a view held by 30% of Republicans.

The 82% and 90% of Democrats believing this is alarming because although we often think that all Democrats are completely lunatic fringe loons welcoming the ushering in of the totalitarian dystopia pushed by the radical Marxists in the party and in its assorted affiliated groups, including the mainstream media, the fact is that there are still Democrats who are American patriots, who don’t want our country to be turned into a third-world hellhole presided over by tyrannical leaders who mandate their every thought and action.

These people are shifting their views about the fundamental fabric of American society, and that is something that can and must be corrected.

Where are the Republican leaders who should be pushing back against this destructive narrative?  If there is no pushback, no correction, no one with a big enough platform pointing out that America is the greatest country ever founded and that all of our citizens have unparalleled access to opportunity, these numbers condemning our country as racist will continue to climb.

And that view will be exploited by the left to seize control of our great country and to enact their fundamental transformation under the guise of correcting a systemic racism that doesn’t exist.

Old Navy Dismantles America, Advocates One World Order In “We Are We” Ad

Before ditching Amazon Prime, I used to watch a good bit of video there, but since I refuse to support a company and owner who literally hate me (I’m “deplorable” don’t you know? And Jeff Bezos doesn’t want my type there), I’ve begun watching other streaming channels.  One of which is the Roku channel.

It’s good enough, no complaints, but getting used to the ads (and to the HUGE volume increase on said ads) is a learning curve. As an aside, I find myself hitting “mute” instead of dealing with the loud (not, I am sure, the advertisers’ intent).

Anyway, I’m not writing to whine about my post-Amazon Prime viewing issues.  Well, maybe I am because I am finding myself assaulted by the most horrendous propaganda.

What have we here?  One of my all-time favorite popsicle snacks (the always delicious in its sweet-tarty unique goodness Firecracker) followed by childish drivel about “one world” and “we are we” seems so innocuous . . . or, at least, is intended to.

The very first thing we see here is the dismantling of the red, white, and blue, of America.  It’s CHOPped up and sent flying in favor of a world with”every voice advocated” (except those pesky people who still think America is exceptional and worth fighting for).

Indeed, there is no mention at all of country, of America, but only of the “world.”  Old Navy promises a world in which global citizens bask in love and acceptance (unless, presumably, you support Trump and crazy stuff like countries and borders and law and order).

This utopian ideal always sucks in the stupid, the ignorant, the idealists, and the losers.  All of whom are ridiculous and deserve our daily ridicule, finger-pointing, and condemnation.

I don’t want to live in a third-world hell-hole laden with graffiti and stinking of human filth; I don’t want my country to be CHAZ/CHOP where vigilante justice reigns and street thugs proclaim themselves “warlords.”  That is not a happy vision of anything; it’s dystopic, scary as hell, and just plain stupid.

What’s wrong with Old Navy spinning out the red, white, and blue in favor of some unattainable regressive Utopian world?

Everything.

Every. Thing.

Watch what you are watching and watch what your children watch.  Seeing a red, white, and blue popsicle chopped up and sent into the ether may be clear propaganda to you and me, but this is how the left works. When they aren’t being subtle, they are being sledgehammers.  This is the subtle, propaganda phase . . . history tells us that the iron fist is sure to follow.

Purging “Good” Society of “Witches”: The Regressive Left’s Cancel Culture Embodies Salem Witch Trial Mentality

So I’m watching an old Firefly episode (on DVD) . . . the one where River is about to be burned at the stake because some fanatics accused her of being a witch. “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live,” the zealots intoned, reminding me instantly and as intended by Joss Whedon of the mass hysteria that constituted the Salem witch trials (and more broadly, the witch hunts and burnings across Europe).

The point was that such zealotry, such inflamed mobs acting as their own justice system is not such a great thing.  In fact, it’s pretty much a bad thing.

You know the story, a bunch of whiny, crazy (either with spite and maliciousness or from spoiled wheat(!?)) adolescent girls randomly accused various of their neighbors of being witches.  The girls knew the accusation alone, with no proof at all, would lead to the accused being ostracized, unable to work or feed their families, and in some cases, even hanged, or in one horrific case, pressed to death.  (Interesting aside: No one accused of being a witch was burned at the stake in Salem.)

These “witches,” the girls proclaimed, made them think bad thoughts and “see” bad things.  The “witches” were an insult to good society, to the greater good, to all that is good, and so they must die, the goodly Puritans goodly proclaimed.

Of course it was more complicated than that and involved a lot of political and socio-cultural factors, but the idea that a society can be purged of its evil–including politically-concocted “evil” that fits a “narrative”–has a long tradition in the history of humankind.  And, ironically perhaps, it never ends well for the perpetrators of these injustices; they are history’s “lessons,” the thing not to be, the thing history reviles and ridicules.

Yet it’s a history that is alive and well in the 21st century.  Cancel culture, so far, is just another group of hysterical teenagers (in terms of emotional, psychological, and intellectual development) pointing at the heretics they perceive to be feeding them wrong thoughts and bad things and demanding the “witches” be purged from society.

Right now that means losing one’s job, social standing, home, but purging “witches” for the greater good really means literally killing them.  We’re well-versed in the Black Panthers who urge the killing of white people, including white babies. This is their thing; kill the “witch.”

So far, the police and an armed-to-the-teeth public are standing between civilization and a barbaric, 1692-Salem style end to America.  Naturally, then, the “witch”-purging left wants to abolish the police and disarm the people standing in the way of their literally dragging white people from their houses and lopping off their heads. Or simply shooting them in the head or beating them nearly to death in the streets . . . as they are already doing now.

CHAZ was renamed CHOP quite pointedly, the guillotine is the symbol of the pseudo-anarchist, pseudo-revolutionary left—i.e. the white part of the loosely-affiliated fringe freaks attempting to take down America and that still hopes to live long enough to make the streets run red with the blood of “witches” who say things like “MAGA,” “free market,” and “legal immigration, not illegal invasion.”

My guess is they won’t if this nightmare is allowed to unfold as it appears to be unfolding.  The anarchist left is lily white, not sufficiently “woke” to the Marxist BLM black supremacy cause, and at this point, after their abject failure in CHAZ/CHOP, expendable to the big-picture struggle they barely registered in as dots.

People on both the left and right mocked President Trump when he warned that taking down Confederate statues would lead to the taking down of the Founding Fathers.  I did not mock him, and in fact, I was vocal against supposed GOP “stars” like that disgrace Nikki Haley going along with it.  I saw the writing on the wall because it’s the same writing on the wall of every totalitarian revolution.

Granted, I did not see, or even dream, that the next targets would be the Emancipation Memorial or Frederick Douglass, and that shift, to be honest, signals just how insane and unprincipled and lunatic these people are.

And they are freaking nuts.  Who marches in a residential neighborhood chanting “Eat the rich”?  It’s barbaric, it’s uncivilized, it’s freaking looney-toons crazy . . . and super gross.  Yet they did it.  When people show you who they are, believe them.

Do I think they’ll be chowing down on white Hollywood elite stir fry?  Actually, no, but I can imagine these frenzied mobs literally biting into the living flesh of these heretics who defile their world.

Does the increasingly insane scold left really want people to die for wearing a MAGA hat or saying “All Lives Matter” or for being “rich”?  I think we can safely say that if not all of them do, a sufficient number do to make it truly alarming.  And their justification is exactly the same as that of the Puritans purging their society of “witches”: witches are evil and cannot be suffered to live.

Funny how actual Christians reject killing witches of any kind, real or imagined, but the radical leftist hordes have their new witches to destroy and do so without a single thought, moment of empathy or compassion, or regret.

Tell me who is evil: the person who willfully, even gleefully, condemns a member of their community to disgrace, homelessness, joblessness, and poverty, even death, or the person who is falsely accused and assailed by these perpetually adolescent cry-bullies?  The person who willfully destroys the life and livelihood of a person for wearing a MAGA hat or for praising the president or the person who wears a MAGA hat and/or praises the president?

We all know the answer.  Even the crazed adolescents of the Salem Witch Trials regretted their actions . . . after it was far too late for far too many.

No matter whom the Dems pick, President Trump is the only unity candidate running in 2020

Democrats are in clear disarray.  With the proud commies competing against the not very closeted commies posing as “moderates” for the 2020 Democrat nomination, Democrat pundits and leadership, including most recently Nancy Pelosi, are calling for a “unity” candidate.

What they mean, of course, is uniting Democrats on their pro-abortion, pro-open borders, anti-First and Second Amendment, pro-criminal, anti-police, Green New Deal, Medicare for All commie lunacy.  Democrats are themselves telling pro-life Democrats to get lost, that they are not welcome in a party that is adamantly pro-abortion up to and even after birth.

And naturally, the idea of uniting with anyone who doesn’t buy into and march to the beat of their anti-American drum is complete anathema to them.  Live in flyover country? Voted for Trump?  Care about God, family, and country over the latest hundreds of gender pronouns or whatever “woke” madness they’ve dreamed up this week?  No unity for you.  Support free markets and free people?  Well, you are the worst kind of deplorable and cannot be in the “unity” club.  “Wrong” gender, race, religion, political bent?  No soup unity for you!

They have plans for everyone, including you, though.  You get to pay for their crazy, impossible commie pipe dreams . . . all the while being called a racist and whateverphobe by the “unity” crew who is intent on bleeding you and your family dry. Because [insert whatever] justice.

You know who doesn’t talk about Americans as separate but un/equal voting blocs?  Who doesn’t pander to the basest emotions like greed, envy, and victimhood?  Who doesn’t look out at America and think about which “basket” human beings should be shoved into?  Who doesn’t denigrate, blame, demonize, and eviscerate normal Americans?

Yep, President Trump.  For all the crazy accusations of racism that have been hurled at him, Trump simply isn’t racist.  He never said white supremacists were just like everyone else or whatever that crazy lie is the left loves to tell.  He never said that all illegal immigrants are criminals and rapists, though he did acknowledge the proven fact that some are.  He never worked to depress black or Latino employment (as every Democrat in any position of power has done since, and including, Johnson).

In fact, his track record, i.e. actual accomplishments for all races in America speaks to his insistence that all Americans be treated equally, all Americans achieve full employment, higher wages, and better opportunities.

This idea of equality, though, has been so bastardized by the commie left that they actually think that being equal is a sign of white supremacy and racism.  They demand inequality in everything.  Anyone deemed a victim is to be afforded more and better everything, free passes in the judicial system, hand-outs and “protections” that are not afforded others because they are the wrong race, gender, religion, etc.

But it’s all a trap. The idea is to further infantalize these Democrat voting groups, to make them more dependent than ever on a government run by Democrats.  It’s a cynical, evil scheme rooted not in “unity” or compassion or justice (at least as normal people think of it) but in ensnaring, even enslaving, entire generations of minority groups for political gain, for political power.

America, they say, is racist, unjust, unfair, xenophobic, and etc.  America, to them, is a stinking pit of inequity and hate. America is a stain on the map of the world, the least worthwhile country on the planet.  America, they think, should cease to exist as America.

They want, quite literally, to abolish America by getting rid of our borders, “revising” our Constitution, and “remaking” our economic, social, cultural, and political systems.  Their unity candidate is intended to bring all of the left together under this umbrella of loathing, contempt, and destruction.

Those of us who do not want that are expendable, and we know this because they tell us so.  We’re “bitter clingers,” “deplorables,” “rubes,” “racists,” “white supremacists,” “Nazis” . . . ultimately, the goal of all this is for us to become subhuman, little more than animals.

You know who doesn’t attack normal Americans?  Trump.  He might attack “Pocahantus” or “Mini Mike,” but he doesn’t diminish in any way their voters.  He doesn’t attack the people of America because he doesn’t loathe any of us.

Honestly, I think that if the Democrats were to wise up and kick their evil schemes to the curb and decide to suddenly start working for ALL Americans, Trump would welcome that without scorn or a victory dance, and he would work with them on his agenda items they can agree on.

He genuinely wants to do what is right for this country and for all of her people.  To my mind, that makes him the only real unity candidate running in 2020 . . . no matter what commie loser the Democrats pit against him.

Fuzzy Shorts: Trump, 2020 Dem Primary, Impeachment, and More

I haven’t posted here in forever and am not really planning on restarting this blog, but you know when you have all this stuff to say and want to just let it roll?  That’s me. Today.

So here we go:

Trump 2020

Despite my early and very strong aversion to and reservations about President Trump, he’s turned out to be a damned good president.  Sure, he’s not the most polished guy around, but I have come to distrust the polished McSmarmy types more than ever before.

I’ll be voting for him again in November, and this time, it will be enthusiastic and FOR him rather than against Hillary (as my 2016 vote more assuredly was).

Bernie and his Commie Revolution

Bernie’s crazed revolutionaries terrify the crap out of me.  These are people who literally want to execute their enemies, by guillotine. For history’s sake.  They are deranged and evil to their core, and they really think that killing “the rich” and “landlords” and Republicans is noble.  This is more twisted and unhinged than a lot of people seem to grasp.  We aren’t talking about another century, another country, another world; this is 21st America, and there are people who want us all dead: literally dragged from our homes-publicly executed dead . . . or in literal gulags.

Happily for us, however, this is the 21st century, and it is America, and it is this world . . . where we are not only not oppressed, beaten-down, impoverished peasants, starving half to death, and desperate for any salvation, but we are also endowed by our Creator with inalienable rights, like the right to keep and bear arms and to protect ourselves from lunatic revolutionaries who might roll into our towns.

Mainstream Media

I am still completely gob-smacked by the bubble-dwelling leftstream media.  Despite all evidence that they are mistrusted and reviled by the general public, despite all evidence that their relentless attacks not just on President Trump but on his supporters is alienating their ever-dwindling audience, they just keep on lying, dissembling, hiding the truth, and pretending they still matter.

It’s actually quite amusing at this point.  They just spew their bile into the world and hope that someone, somewhere hears it and cares.  Sadly, no one does hear it because we long ago–way before Trump–tuned out,and if it somehow slips into our view, we simply don’t care what they have to say.  They can survive our anger and outrage, but not our utter indifference.

Nancy Pelosi

Impeachment has really been a boon for Trump. It was a stupid move by Pelosi, and the weakness she demonstrated in bending to the will of the radical commie left in her caucus will result in her losing her speakership or, if Dems lose the House in November, her leadership position. She caved, and that weakness will be used by her enemies in her own caucus to unseat her.  As it should.

2020 Democrats

What a ridiculous assortment of socialists/commies and abject losers. Who knows what the hell Democrats are thinking with this motley crew of anti-American freaks and weirdos.

Gropey Joe lost his marbles many moons ago, and people politely pretended not to notice. But he’s running for president, so it can’t be ignored any longer.  Someone who cares about him needs to get him off the campaign trail asap.

Sanders is an off-putting, overly-sensitive commie nutbag. He loves dictators and commies, and he thinks breadlines are awesome.  He yells constantly, and he’s just a curmudgeonly hot mess of flying hair wisps and unkempt slovenliness whose time was up 40 years ago with the collapse of communism, and he was so busy living in his head that he didn’t even notice.

Former small city mayor Pete Buttigieg is a novelty candidate whose novelty will wear off soon.  No way does he win the nomination, and no way would he win the presidency if he did.  He’s a ridiculous parody of a politician who tries to be all things to all people and ends up being nothing to everyone.

Amy Klobuchar is “surging” and gaining “momentum.” Yawn.  She’s going nowhere.

Elizabeth Warren is done, so there’s not much point in even noting her long long list of faults.

Nanny Mini-Mike Bloomberg won’t cut it, either, against Trump.  He’s a gun-grabbing, Big Gulp-banning totalitarian freak with a Napoleon complex over his not even that short stature.  Anyone that sensitive to criticism is going to wilt in the face of a Trump general election campaign, and there is plenty for normal Americans, including Trump-skeptics and Indies, to find reprehensible about him.

So what happens next?

Predictions are dangerous, of course, but as of now, I think that the Democrats are heading to a brokered convention where they will be forced to pick commie Bernie, will settle for Nanny Bloomberg, or will let someone “new” swoop in and grab the prize.

The latter option seems the most risky for Democrats because anointing Hillary or Michelle Obama (the most likely ones to swoop in and feed on the carcasses of their fellow Democrats) will just alienate the Bernie Bros and Faucahauntus sisters and the . . . well, whatever the supporters of small town Pete are.

Ultimately, things look great for Trump right now.  Barring any significant changes between now and November, he’s going to win reelection . . . unless Bernie is nominated and people mistakenly believe Trump has it in the bag against such a complete loon.

Trump supporter over-confidence could be his undoing (as was Hillary voter over-confidence in 2016 when a lot of Hillary supporters thought her landslide victory was practically pre-ordained and written in the stars and sat home basking in their choice rather than heading to the polls to actually vote), but I don’t think there’s much risk of that.

Trump supporters are fuming over the attempted coup that started the minute he was sworn in and continues to this day.  We want to vote to reaffirm our support for him and our utter, crushing disdain for Democrats and for the deep staters who sought to overturn the 2016 election.
