My annual Passover post, with Biden in Pharaoh’s role this year

Every year, I publish a variation of my Passover post, with the latest enemy of freedom starring as Pharaoh. This year, Biden is Pharaoh.

For roughly 3,500 years, Jews have been telling and retelling the story of Passover — which is also the story of the world’s first revolt against a totalitarian dictatorship. The story remains relevant because each generation sees dangerous tyrants abusing their people and trying to expand their reach beyond their own borders. As we stare down those monsters, the thing to remember is that those atop the tyranny pyramid care about only one thing, which is that their tyranny remains stable and protected. I’m a little late this year (the past three days have been busy), but it’s still Passover work, so it’s time for this year’s iteration of my annual Passover post.

****

There are those who, rather than seeing the Passover ceremony as a celebration of freedom (for it celebrates the world’s first successful slave revolt), justice, and morality (insofar as it gave us the Ten Commandments), deride the whole ceremony as the unconscionable and immoral celebration of the Egyptian people’s genocide. The basis for this theory is the way in which God hardens Pharaoh’s heart after each plague, even as Pharaoh seems about to soften and let the Jews go. This engenders the full cycle of plagues, culminating in the death of the firstborn.

Those familiar with the Bible understand that this objection is predicated upon ignorance. The tenth plague, which saw God strike down the firstborn in every family without the Pascal lamb’s blood above their door, was not a random punishment. It was, instead, divine retribution for the Pharaoh’s own decree, in effect at Moses’s birth, that all firstborn Jewish males should be drowned in the Nile.

Also, I was re-reading Dennis Prager’s superb The Rational Bible: Exodus and was reminded that each one of the plagues essentially attacked one of the Egyptian’s many gods. Only in this way could God demonstrate that they were false idols and that he had the power to control the symbols with which they were associated. Of course, for those who see the Passover story as a neo-Nazi story, even that reasoning isn’t good enough.

One can bypass the whole issue by saying that the many plagues, culminating with the firstborn’s death, are nothing more than dramatic license, meant to increase the tension and danger surrounding the Jew’s escape from Egypt. After all, if the exodus had been easy, it wouldn’t have been much of a story. Imagine if Moses had asked, “Hey, Pharaoh, can we go?” and Pharaoh had answered, “Sure.”

That narrative lacks punch and heroism. More importantly, God’s involvement is minimal or, at least, unexciting. Surely it resonates more strongly with the people reliving the narrative every year to have an escalating series of plagues, with the audience on tenterhooks as to whether those pesky Jewish slaves will actually be able to make a break for it.

But frankly, the above reasoning is silly. The Bible is not so superficial. There is, instead, a much more profound purpose behind the ten plagues, and that is to remind us of the tyrant’s capacity for tolerating others’ suffering, as long as his power remains in place.

What Pharaoh discovered with the first nine plagues is that life can go on, at least for the ruler, no matter the burdens he places upon his people. A blood-filled Nile River may, at first, seem appalling, but the red recedes and life goes on. Pharaoh still holds power. The same is true for each subsequent plague, whether lice, boils, frogs, darkness, or anything else. As long as Pharaoh realizes, after the first panic, that he is still powerful, he will always reconcile himself to his people’s incremental destruction.

Sheltered in his lavish palace, Pharaoh might have a theoretical concern that a starving and frightened populace could turn on him. However, provided that he is assured that his people will continue to fear and worship him, their suffering is irrelevant. It is only when the price becomes too high — when the plague struck Pharaoh in his own palace, killing his firstborn* — that Pharaoh is convinced, even temporarily, to alter his evil ways.

Human nature hasn’t changed in 3,500 years. Think, for example, of both the Nazis and the Japanese at the end of WWII. For the Nazis, it was apparent by December 1944 (the Battle of the Bulge) that the war was over. Hitler, however, was a megalomaniac in the pharaonic mold, and his high command, either from fear or insanity, would not gainsay him. Rather than surrendering, the Nazi high command was not only willing to see its country overrun and its citizens killed, but they went along with Hitler’s demand to continue to divert military supplies to the Holocaust. The war ended only when Hitler, facing personal humiliation, killed himself and the remaining high command, see their lives at stake, finally gave up or committed suicide too. Hitler and his commanders were Pharaoh. Only when they, personally, faced a humiliating death would they stop fighting.

The same held true for the Japanese. Truman did not decide to drop the bomb just for the hell of it. Even impressing the Soviets was an insufficient reason for doing so. What swayed Truman was his advisers telling him (credibly as it turned out) that the Japanese Bushido culture would not allow Japan to surrender. Instead, Truman understood that, despite an inevitable American victory, without drastic action, that victory would take another year, and cost up to 100,000 American lives and as many as 1,000,000 Japanese lives (including Japanese civilians).

Truman had two choices: Wage war for at least another year, killing 100,000 Americans and up to a million Japanese civilians, or end the war instantly, with no more American casualties and an estimated 100,000 civilian Japanese casualties. Put that way, the choice was a no-brainer.  Not only would he save the military, but he would also save tens of thousands of POWs, both military and civilian. One of the Dutch civilian POWs saved was my Mom, who was on the verge of starving to death in a Japanese concentration camp.

The Japanese high command was Pharaoh. No amount of smaller plagues could stop the command from its chosen path. Only a large plague would swiftly lead to the inevitable conclusion.

The only way to destroy an evil institution is to decapitate it. That’s what God did with the 10th plague. That’s what Truman did when he dropped atom bombs on Japan. That’s what the Allies did when they engaged in total war against the Nazis. In each case, the only way to end a tyrant’s rampage of murder, torture, and enslavement was directly hurting the tyrant’s person.

Those who prefer the stability of tyranny to the risks of freedom are the same people who refuse to accept that, under tyranny, the innocents are always going to die, with the only question being whether they will die quickly or slowly. That’s the problem with an evil regime. If you’re unlucky enough to live under that regime, you’re going to end as cannon fodder. Pharaoh will let you die of plagues, and the Nazi and Japanese leadership will let you be bombed and burned, and Biden will open America’s southern border while ramping up the welfare system and pushing Critical Race Theory, a pernicious racial theory every bit as bad as the Nazi’s racial theories. Ensconced in the White House, and surrounded by unelected fanatics, nothing will stop them. The American economy can collapse and whites can become the subjects of actual purges and the Biden administration will continue on its path — as long as the tyrants in charge can retain their power.

People of goodwill must sometimes recognize that the generation raised under tyranny is a lost generation that cannot be saved, whether because it will die under the tyrant’s lash, in the tyrant’s war, or in a war against the tyrant. Sometimes, when slaves finally taste freedom, they fear it. The Bible recognizes this problem, banning the Promised Land to those who were slaves in Egypt. They were a lost generation.

For this reason, when one sees a people groaning under tyranny the most humane thing to do is to destroy the tyranny quickly and decisively even if that process causes people to suffer. Most of them were always going to be lost. Our actions are for the benefit of subsequent generations and, if we are lucky, for those who survived both the tyranny and the liberation.

Protecting freedom for the greatest number of people sometimes demands proactive behavior. And there is nothing more proactive than an overwhelming response when a tyrant starts putting out feelers to see how far he can go. If Chamberlain had done that in 1938, WWII might have been avoided.**

The only way to stop tyranny is to fight tyranny. For liberty-loving people in America, that’s a challenge, because, for the first time in my lifetime, the tyrant is their unfettered government. Still, we have weapons. For one thing, every last one of us needs to stop bowing down before cancel culture. Even non-conservatives need to realize that there is no end to cancel culture. Its practitioners must constantly strive to prove their purity and they can do this only by attacking others.

Today, I put up a post at American Thinker about the push at Oxford University to cancel the entire Western music system (musical notations, Beethoven, Brahms, etc.) because it existed at the same time as the African slave trade. Apparently even then, if Europeans who had nothing to do with and probably no knowledge of the slave trade didn’t speak out, they were complicit! I made a point regarding events at Oxford that I think is relevant here:

I think the Oxford music teachers know this is bunkum. They’re raising it only because they feel that, unless they chime in on the Black Lives Matter issue and show themselves to be on board with it, they will be the next target. Under the tyranny that is BLM, if you’re not with them, you’re against them, and if you’re against them, you will be destroyed in the next purge (and there’s always a next purge).

As I watch the endless waves of BLM stupidity in corporations and academic institutions in the English-speaking world, I’m reminded of nothing so much as the mourners at Kim Jong-il’s funeral. They knew that the secret police were watching and that anyone showing insufficient grief was at risk of being carted off to a concentration camp. That’s why you see videos such as the one below showing thousands of people engaged in hysterical weeping. Yes, they were told that their communist godhead had died, but what you’re seeing in these videos isn’t grief, it’s fear.

We have to stop playing this fear game. When they call us racists, when they subject us to the appalling racist Critical Race Theory, when they use race to justify overthrowing our southern border, we need to speak out even more loudly. We need to fight their ideology at every turn. We need to boycott the woke companies. We need to fund organizations that will handle lawfare for people fired because they exercised their constitutional rights.

Do anything and everything you can think of to push back against this administration. That does not mean violating the laws; it does not mean impoverishing yourself; it does not mean violence. However, it does mean speaking up constantly, withholding what money you can from complicit organizations, and backing down only when your safety is at risk (something, sadly, I know about doing).

With that, I’d like to wish all of you a Chag Sameach (Happy Passover). Whether Jewish or not, I hope that the Pesach celebration serves as an occasion for all of us to remember that, though the price may sometimes be high, both for slave and master, our goal as just and moral human beings must be freedom. So please join with me in saying, as all Jews do at this time of year, “Next Year in Jerusalem.”

*The fact that Pharaoh survived the last of the ten plagues tells us that he was not his father’s firstborn son. Either an older sibling died or Pharaoh was the younger child in a family unrelated to the Egyptian ruling family and, through a coup, seized the throne.

**And yes, I am aware of the argument that Chamberlain might not have been Hitler’s dupe. Thanks to England’s anti-War fervor after WWI, which led to disarmament and the drawing down of her military, Chamberlain might have believed by 1938 that England could do nothing to stop Hitler. That belief would have led him to choose appeasement as the only option. I don’t agree with this view because bullies will back down quickly if their intended victim fights even minimally, but I’ll give Chamberlain the benefit of the doubt because he was a decent and patriotic man.

Blacks and Asians

Here’s the reality behind the Democrat lie that Trump has caused black-on-Asian violence.

You probably know that there’s been an uptick in random, clearly race-related attacks against Asians. I’m under the impression that all, or most, of the attackers are black. Here’s a representative story:

The claim is that this is all Trump’s fault because he insisted on saying that the Wuhan flu originated in Wuhan, China. He also made it clear that he thought that the Chinese government, even if it didn’t create the virus in a lab or lose control of it, nevertheless deliberately lied about it and sent its citizens abroad to spread COVID. By saying such things, assert leftists, Trump turned Asian people into targets.

Let me restate that fine argument: The black people who presumably hate Trump (because of the media’s and Biden’s Fine People Hoax), nevertheless believed Trump implicitly about China’s responsibility for the virus. Then, despite Trump never having said a word about Asian people in America or in any way encouraging violence against them, these Trump-hating blacks took it upon themselves to get revenge against China by pushing over elderly Chinese people.

The media clearly think black people are idiots. Or they think Americans generally are idiots to believe that story. The fact is that it’s the leftist Americans (Democrats, progressives, socialists, etc.) who are that stupid if they believe this kind of media crap.

Allow me to tell you what’s really going on here: Blacks dislike Asians because they resent them. Incidentally, Asian immigrants, being incredibly racist in their home countries, despise blacks, whom they view as an inferior race. This Chinese commercial is Exhibit 1:

You can find Exhibits 2 through infinity across all of Asia if you spend just a few minutes looking. When I was growing up, the Chinese-born parents of my friends, all of whom liked me, nevertheless made it clear that their child’s friendship with a white kid was permissible only because, with the girls, these were obviously mere friendships while, with the boys, they were obviously nothing more than friendships. Nothing would have enraged them more than if I’d been dating one of their sons.

But this post isn’t about Asian immigrants looking down on blacks or whites. It’s about why blacks dislike Asians: It’s because Asians show that the black problem isn’t slavery; it’s culture.

Starting in the 1970s, Chinese immigrants began to pour into America. Coming from a communist country they had nothing. They didn’t speak the language (or anything related to the language) and they had no real marketable Western skills. They squeezed multiple families into cramped slum apartments and took whatever hard, dirty work came their way.

Oh, and they demanded that their children do well in school. That was the Number 1 thing: Do well in school. And the Chinese kids did exactly that.

After doing well in K-12, they went to state colleges and universities or, if they were super smart and very lucky, got scholarships to prestigious colleges and universities. They worked hard in higher education, aced their classes, got great jobs, and bought houses in the suburbs where they moved their hardworking parents and grandparents. They were model minorities: Minimal crime, incredible academic performances, good jobs, increased affluence.

Things are different among blacks. Ever since the Civil Rights Movement, blacks have sneered at academia. If you want the details, read John McWhorter’s Losing the Race: Self-Sabotage in Black America. In it, he details a culture in which doing well in school and staying out of trouble is “acting white” and a bad thing.

This is the mindset BLM advances: doing math, being ambitious and punctual, working hard, being respectful — those are all signs of white, cultural imperialism being used against blacks. The fact that blacks could do those very things themselves and succeed is irrelevant. What matters is that across the activist black world, in the schools among the kids, and in the streets among the gangs, the message is relentless: Hard work and other behaviors that lead to academic and professional success are the internalized self-loathing that comes from systemic white racism.

Put another way, the message that is now writ large across America thanks to BLM is that black failure is white people’s fault because white people put unreasonable demands on blacks. We’re told that, because of the dislocation of the slavery that ended 160 years ago, and because of the genuinely systemic racism of the Jim Crow era (which only a small proportion of people still experienced) , blacks can’t be expected to perform up to white standards. Only a racist would expect that.

But then you have these Asian people, tiny, speaking a foreign language, navigating a completely alien culture, often living in the same slums as the black people — and damn their hides, they’re mastering the system. Their kids do great in school and the families amass wealth. It proves that, no matter the grim circumstances in people’s backgrounds, through those despicable “white” attributes (hard work in school and out), they can succeed.

In the last 30 years or so, the successful Far Eastern Asians (mostly Chinese and Korean) have been joined by the South Eastern Asians from the Indian subcontinent, who are, on average, the highest-earning people in America. Their culture also puts enormous stress on academic achievement and it pays off.

I’ll share a little racist secret with you: I think blacks are every bit as capable as whites or Asians, or pinks or greens, for that matter. There is nothing inherently wrong with blacks. Genetically, they’re people who live on a bell curve like everyone else, with a broad spread of physical and mental talents.

What’s wrong with blacks is that, since the 1960s, they’ve allowed white Democrats to impose upon them a culture of failure and to convince them that this is their natural, inherent black culture. When they see Asians arrive without even the advantage of speaking English and then do well, it infuriates them. Rather than confronting their Democrat puppet masters about the racist lie being used against them, they take out their rage on the nearest convenient objects. These “objects” happen to be fragile, elderly Asian people, whom they smash to the curb as the only way they can think of to lash out at an unjust system.

These frustrated blacks, trapped in a cycle of poverty and crime, are right that the system is unjust but that injustice isn’t because of those innocent Asian victims. It’s unjust because white elites in the Democrat party and their black kapo enforcers in BLM and the race hustlers in the media are running an ugly, obscene con job on blacks to keep them in a perpetual state of servitude. The goal is to ensure that Democrats can rely on black’s loyal votes in perpetuity.

And the really big Democrat joke on the blacks is that, having attained total federal power, the first thing the Dems are doing is opening the border and giving citizenship to 30 million illegal Latin Americans. These are the people who compete with poor blacks for jobs and housing, and who will make black votes irrelevant. The Democrats will have all the votes they need from the new Hispanic population.

Democrat efforts to use and abuse blacks ended with slavery and Jim Crow. However, they eventually figured out that they could control blacks completely with a vicious, destructive simulacrum of kindness that would destroy them, turning generations of young blacks into mindless people committed to violence and dependent on the government. And once these grievously manipulated people had fulfilled their Helter Skelter purpose of destroying America’s successful economic, social, and political culture, the ruling class could abandon them in favor of the easier-to-manage Latin Americans, who haven’t yet learned to bridle at doing menial labor for the Nancy Pelosis and Joe Bidens of this world.

But back to the Asians, there is something that might console these blacks who are brainwashed enough to think that it’s the Asians, not the Democrats, who are their enemies. Asians invariably send their kids to college. In the last 20 years, colleges have become so wacked-out with Wokeness and identity-politics, that their children are getting deeply propagandized, just as surely as blacks have been.

Asian children, instead of feeling superior and accomplished, are being taught that they’re victims. And once they learn that, they’ll fail too, just like all the other identity groups the Democrats demean and exploit.

And that’s why there’s an uptick in black violence against elderly Asian people.

It’s time for my version of a Christmas post

2020’s agonies make it more important than ever that I count my blessings — and sharing America’s Christmas spirit is a very big blessing.

Every year, I post my favorite Christmas song, which is Josh Groban’s live version of O Holy Night. This has been a strange year but I’m not going to abandon that tradition. Also, not every year but often, I use Christmas as a springboard to express my gratitude for the gift of Christianity — most specifically, America’s Christianity.

American Christians are very special people in that they generously share Christmas with everyone! There’s no price tag. I don’t have to give up my secular, cultural (and moral, I hope) Judaism to be enveloped in the loving, happy Christmas spirit. That spirit is everywhere — in the well-wishes from friends and strangers, in the beautiful lights that surround me, and in the hopeful spirit of the season. Christians carry it in their hearts even when our federal, state, and local governments takes on the character of Scrooge and the Grinch combined, except that none of these institutional tyrants and haters show signs that their hearts will change this year.

I’m also grateful for American Christians because those churches that have not embraced Marx as their central tenet in place of the New Testament are not anti-Semitic. My parents were afraid of Christianity. They came from Europe and associated Christianity with anti-Semitism. Even the fact that the greatest anti-Semitic killer the world has ever known was a socialist who rejected the church did not change their view. To them, European Christianity was a threat and, if Hitler went mad, the backdrop was a thousand years of a church that hated Jews.

That’s not the case in America, at least among traditional denominations. And with America’s angry leftists becoming ever more open about their anti-Semitism (ironically, as the Muslim Middle East is starting to embrace Jews and Israel), I am daily grateful for American Christians. Thank you for being you and understanding brotherhood and pluralism in a free country.

With that, I freely and happily wish everyone, Christian and non-Christian alike, a very Merry Christmas. Whether as a deeply religious occasion or a shared spirit of seasonal joy, it’s a wonderful holiday. And what better way to do it than with Josh Groban’s beautiful O Holy Night?

Now we know for sure that our judges and justices are abject cowards

Stinking, Reeking COWARD, Supreme Court Justice Amy Barrett, 2020

Now we know for sure that our judges and justices are abject cowards

Several weeks ago, we worried that the judges and justices, state and federal, may not have the courage to take up the cases before them addressing the massive election fraud that took place November 3rd.  Now we know that they are all cowards, the Constitution be damned.  

Even the three SCOTUS justices Trump fought for were too terrified to do the right thing.

The intimidation tactics of the left – Antifa, BLM, and the campus fascists — have worked.  They have frightened each and every judge and justice, with the not surprising exceptions of Clarence Thomas and Sam Alito, into disregarding Articles II and III of the Constitution.  

The vote fraud that took place in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada was monstrous and long planned.  Election laws were surreptitiously weakened by secret consent decrees (GA), mass mail-in ballots, Dominion vote machines programmed to flip votes, the creation of tens of thousands of fake ballots, illegal alien voting, illegal drop boxes, get-out-the-vote campaigns in Democrat-heavy districts paid for by the execrable Zuckerberg of Facebook infamy, the refusal to allow GOP observers, ballots trucked from one state to another.  

The judges dismissed lawsuits in every court where one was filed by the Trump campaign or other plaintiffs, seemingly without even considering the details.  The Supreme Court justices surely all know what took place; they can’t have missed all the hearings at which witnesses to fraud testified and signed affidavits as to the truth of what they observed.  But the judges and justices were afraid.  Now that the left seems to have successfully stolen the election, they will certainly do it again.  They have the permission of the SCOTUS.  Margot Cleveland does a masterful job explaining how cowardly the court’s dismissal was. 

Every remotely sentient American by now knows that the Democrats cheated every conceivable way possible.  Around 30% of Democrats reportedly do not believe the final result.  Biden did little actual campaigning but knew his win was in the bag thanks to the combined forces of big tech (Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter), the mainstream media that is the propaganda arm of the DNC, and all those Soros-installed state secretaries of state, AGs, and election officials willing to do the left’s and Soros’s bidding for a price.  

The nine justices on the Supreme Court surely know all this as well.  They know it all but refused to take the case just as all those state judges dismissed the cases before them.  They are simply scared to do the job they swore to do – uphold the Constitution.  

One has to wonder, how many of them have been threatened?  Have they had their families threatened?   So, the bottom line is that none of them should ever have been seated on those courts in the first place, not Gorsuch, Kavanaugh or Barrett to say the least.  Not because Trump nominated them but because when the going got tough, they folded like cheap tents.  All of them except Thomas and Alito, forever true heroes for they are the real thing.  How profoundly disappointing is it that Kavanaugh, whom so many fought so hard for, did not have the guts to stand up against the overwhelming Democrat vote fraud that took place.  They are all scaredy cats, like little children running from bullies.   

It appears that the left’s strategy of “obey us or suffer the consequences” has worked.  They looted and burned numerous cites over the summer vowing that law enforcement must be defunded or disbanded.  Biden and Harris failed to condemn the rioting and Harris staffers raised bail money for the rioters.  And now we are to believe they won!  

Biden will never be considered the legitimate president by the eighty million (not the 74 the left claims) people who did vote for Trump.  Biden has always been a greedy power seeker, a liar, a plagiarist, a racist, a groper of women of all ages, and an all-around very nasty man.  Ask anyone who knows him personally.  And now we know that he and his family are nothing but grifters on a grand, global scale.  

There is no way Joe Biden was fairly elected.  The left planned on cheating; they just did not plan on having to make it so obvious.  Even big tech and the media, so deranged by Trump hatred, failed to realize how much most Americans came to love and respect this President.  

Obviously, Biden is not well, he is declining quickly.  And now that the family’s illegal financial dealings around the world are coming to light, their allegiance and submission to China for example.

Biden may have to resign (if inaugurated) within months.  If that happens and the absurdly unqualified Harris becomes president, the America we knew and loved will be over.  The US will be just another rough and brutal place run by some really awful people drunk on power.  See Peter Weston’s short video to get a Brit’s perspective on the degeneration of our once democratic republic.   And say a little prayer of sadness for all the judges who dismissed valid cases probably without reading them and for the wholesale failure of the Supreme Court of the US to do its due diligence and uphold the Constitution. 

George S. Patton once wrote: 

“Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best’ it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle.  The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty.”

Now They Are Coming After the Pioneers

By Henry Wickham

EXCERPT:

…If Washington and Jefferson were nothing but slave-owning racists, then why bother with Washington’s Farewell Address or the Declaration of Independence? If Hamilton and Madison didn’t demand and get the immediate abolition of slavery, then why support the Constitution? Why prolong a constitutional republic when Utopia supposedly is within our grasp? Work within the system to destroy the system….

…Lives of American Indians were anything but. (I say American Indians instead of Native Americans because anyone legally born in the United States is a native American, and if the name, American Indian Movement, was good enough for Dennis Means, it is good enough for me.) As Lawrence Keeley demonstrates in his book War Before Civilization, the lives of those Indians were incessantly violent with almost constant intertribal warfare.  This was not war to be fought by the fainthearted, as it was characterized by ambushes, murders, scalping, and the atrocious treatment of prisoners. All this after the horrific initiation ordeals for boys often mandated by the tribe….

…But that was then, and this is now. In little more than a year, the winds of destructive revisionism are now at gale force, and, as a rule, college administrators are a cowardly bunch….

The Wuhan virus reveals a profound values schism in America

The way Red and Blue states have responded to the Wuhan virus reveals profoundly different political philosophies in the two Americas.

My son is staying with us because his college sent everyone home after Thanksgiving to do distance learning until next semester. He’s been here three weeks and cannot get over how cavalier people are about mask wearing and social distancing. He misses California’s lockdowns and it’s incredibly strict mask rules. As far as he’s concerned, people here are selfish sadists who, through their carelessness, want everyone to die. I’ve made two arguments to him, neither of which he can comprehend.

Argument 1: That people here are paying close attention to what the lockdown politicians are doing to the middle class, versus what they’re doing vis-à-vis favored classes as well as how they’re handling things in their own lives. Thus, we Red states and other conservatives notice that, under Democrat politicians and their RINO and NeverTrump cohorts, all the working- and middle-class businesses and churches got closed, while the same politicians explicitly or implicitly approved tens of thousands of people gathering for Black Lives Matter protests and riots. Likewise, they’ve noticed how the same politicians exempt themselves from their own rules.

To ordinary Americans/Republicans, that hypocrisy and favoritism is a clear sign that the lockdown politicians know that the Wuhan virus isn’t that dangerous. That being the case, they must be using lockdowns and draconian mask mandates as a political cudgel to achieve control, promote favored constituents, and destroy disfavored constituents.

To my son, though, the politicians’ hypocrisy and favoritism just shows that they’re not that smart. He can’t wrap his mind around people ignoring “the science” — nor does he recognize that the science is disputed, changeable, and politicized.

Argument 2: That people in Blue states value safety while people in Red states value freedom. His response: “You can’t be free if you’re dead.” The old-fashioned notion expressed in Patrick Henry’s much lauded “Give me liberty or give me death” speech is meaningless to him.

That made me think generally about a profound difference between Red states and Blue states. As my son points out, Blue states are much wealthier — although he’s willing to admit that the wealth is highly concentrated and that wealth disparities are greater in Blue states. He also points out that people in Blue states are more “educated.” He cannot understand that “education ain’t what it used to be.” Blue staters may be more credentialed but there’s no indication that they are more learned or more wise.

But again, the point is that Red staters don’t seem to crave the extraordinary wealth that concentrates in Blue states. Nor are they impressed with the Blue state’s credentialism. Nor do they want nanny-statism with its (illusory) promise of perfect safety. Again, what they want is liberty.

While the Blues want money and security, the Reds just say “leave us alone.”

That is such a profound difference, all I can think of is that old tag line from the “marriage advice” column in Good Housekeeping magazine: “Can this marriage be saved?”

If Harris gets into the White House (we know Biden’s just a figurehead), and she gets her Democrat Congress, that obsessive focus on nanny statism and credentialed indoctrination is going to be slammed down on all America. The big question then is whether the Red staters who so want to be left alone will learn to love their prison wardens or if they will begin very aggressively to push back.

I have no predictions. I just know that, when a true conservative is in the White House, the Blue states can be as nanny as they want, while the Red states will be left alone. In other words, it’s true federalism, with 50 laboratories of democracy.

However, if we have a true socialist government in D.C., no one will be left alone. All Americans are going to have a socialist definition of “safety” shoved up and into all their orifices whether they want it or not.

(By the way, apropos the picture at the top of this post, when I went looking to see if von Bismarck had a specific quotation about the nanny state he spearheaded — and I did not find such a quotation — I did find this bit of wisdom from that wily, experienced statesman: “With bad laws and good civil servants it’s still possible to govern. But with bad civil servants even the best laws can’t help.”)

When Barack Obama was elected president in 2008, I knew that the nation had made a big mistake, but I was confident that we could survive it.  Now I have no such confidence.  Biden and Harris have done all they can to steal an election.  They are corrupt politicians and also unprincipled accomplices of radical leftist ideologues.  They are wholly owned by the dark state, and its corporate minions, which in turn is deeply intertwined with Communist China. 

Our rights are in serious jeopardy, beginning with the First Amendment.  With few exceptions, there is no longer a free press, but only a propaganda industry that will censor any information adverse to the left and attack conservatives with false allegations. 

The incoming usurping administration, should it take office, will move immediately to consolidate its authority and permanently ensconce itself in every position that matters to it.  It will hunt down everyone whom it perceives to be a threat to its supremacy and neutralize him, either by physical force or economic deprivation. 

Honest elections are now a thing of the past.  Dissent will not be tolerated.  Courts will not matter.  Schoolchildren will be indoctrinated rather than educated.  Once the left seizes power, it never relinquishes it without bloodshed. 

This nation was founded by men who pledged their lives and their fortunes to it, and more than that, invested their sacred honor in the struggle for freedom.  Sadly, it seems that among today’s leaders, scant few would sign the Declaration of Independence.  They whine that they are powerless instead of taking the only decisive actions that would have successfully reversed the greatest fraud in our history.  Many more of them are counting their pieces of silver. 

I fully expect that Joe Biden will soon be found, by his enablers, to have served his purpose.  Jill Biden fancies herself to be the Dowager Empress, but Kamala Harris will soon slap her aside and then declare, “I sit a queen, and shall know no sorrow.”  (Look it up.) 

[ Revelation 18:7 “How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.” ] King James Version (KJV) I looked it up—JAF, ed. 

But the beast has a ravenous appetite and will swallow her also. 

Whoever is installed as the figurehead, the real heads of dominion will be invisible and, therefore, all the more powerful. 

The final backstop to the illegal dictatorship will be we, the people.  How much do we value our freedom?  How much do we love our children?  How afraid are we to seize back what is rightfully ours, given to us by God? 

Time will tell.

“I feel safe with Joe!”

—Suburban Housewife

<—————————————–>

I can now CELEBRATE, and thank God (Allah), that the long Trump nightmare is over.

Never again will we have to suffer a Republican in Office. Never.

Ever.

I can now celebrate, that DECENCY and HONESTY have been returned to the African-American House, and forever.

No (Gahhhhhhh!) damned “conservative” will ever again ever never be “elected”

(Harvest those votes, Rachel! Oh, and, Roger, there’s 27 big cartons of them in that locked closet!)

And all nice writers out there; I know you gotta write, for one reason or another: but DON’T keep writing how next time we will “vote” really hard.

And we will vote really sincerely.

 “like our lives depend on it….”

…and show those democrat basterds real good. Overwhelm them with our “votes.”

BECAUSE THAT’S JUST BULLSHT!

Yay! Yay, para todas nosotras!

(There can be only the female tense, because all men are toxic.)

 

الصيحة لنا جميعا!
