The Collapse

This is your country.

For a brief moment following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Derek Chauvin, people of all stripes were joined in disgust and sadness. Sadly, that moment quickly passed. In my previous column, I detailed the event as well as the need for law enforcement to re-examine it’s policies and practices. However, in the days since, major cities in the United States have devolved into rioting, looting, and violence. With mainstream corporate media, forever devoted and engaged in radical leftist politics, spurring on the mayhem while excusing the behavior of criminal rioters.

Leftist politicians, celebrities, and media personalities have decided to stand on the side of anarchy, ironically for pure power-grab politics and profit. Cities, states, and towns controlled and neglected by the left have become warzones, and the trendy hypocrites and virtue signalers have assembled in force in an attempt to deflect from the truth. What is the truth? That the insidious lies of identity politics, diversity, inclusion, and intersectionality have sewed the wind, and in many places across the country, we are reaping the whirlwind. In the madness of the #resistance, leaders across the nation are guilty of dereliction of duty in their quest to remove the Bad Orange Man.

Peaceful protests

In the closing lines of my last column, I asked if law enforcement was willing to stand up against the bad apples in their midst. Well, in the wake of the past week, they haven’t had the opportunity because nihilistic and anarchist thugs have decided to demonstrate their ignorant rage.  What should be national unity has become the beginning of race and class war. What should be a careful and serious examination of the citizen’s relationship with it’s leaders and law enforcement agencies has devolved into chaos.

Good job, idiots.

To those that think this will devolve into some kind of civil war that you recognize from history, you are wrong. There will be no banners and flags, no orderly lines of combat. To the people that think declaring themselves “allies” to racists and thugs while engaging in meaningless virtue signaling will exclude them from violence, you are wrong as well.  If good people, of all races and religions, do not stand on the side of stopping the violence in the streets, America is over.

Also ,if  you are someone that uses the language of “my people, our people” and “them” and “they”, I have bad news for you…you are a racist, regardless of the group you identify with or are characterizing.

On a final note: If you’re a good person that has bent the knee to these protests, and is legitimately concerned about issues of race, police violence, and the subjugation of civil rights, I understand. If you are someone that is unhappy with the current system of justice in the United States and want to change it for the better, I understand. But know this, by endorsing, ignoring, or advocating what’s happening on American streets you are going to indeed get “change”, but I assure you it won’t be the kind you like. If and when martial law is activated, freedom as you have known it will completely disappear, along with any civil rights you now enjoy. Get ready.

To Punish And Enslave

Regardless of race, run!

On Monday, May 25th, four members of the Minneapolis Police Department – namely Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Keung – arrested 46 year old George Floyd after receiving a call alleging that Floyd had passed a counterfeit twenty dollar bill at a nearby store. A bystander to the arrest filmed the encounter, and in the recording – which is disgusting, and I will not play it here because I believe it to show the man’s wrongful death – we see MPD officer Derek Chauvin essentially murder Mr. Floyd. Here’s a picture from the footage:

MPD Officer Derek Chauvin

For almost 10 minutes, Chauvin crushed the neck of Floyd while the alleged counterfeiter repeatedly said he couldn’t breathe while displaying obvious medical distress. The other three officers stood by, and instead of helping Mr. Floyd, they threatened bystanders who were asking them to stop. Heartbreakingly, George Floyd likely died during the encounter, shortly after begging for his mother. The vitriol and callousness of the officers on scene, especially officer Chauvin, were clearly visible, and Chauvin even appears to continually and unneccesarily shift his weight to apply more pressure to Floyd’s neck. It is a painful thing to watch, yet the officers seemed completely unconcerned that their actions were being recorded, probably because they engage in this type of behavior all the time. I make that assertion because Chauvin is the recipient of a dozen conduct complaints, none of which earned him any disciplinary action.

One can guess what happened next. Minneapolis has become a riotous warzone, with looting, rioting, and lines of militarized police responding with force. Hundreds of miles away in Los Angeles people also took to the streets to riot and loot, even destroying a couple of police cars. While I do not agree with innocent businesses being looted and destroyed, I completely agree that something must be done, and it has nothing to do with what color you are, it has much more to do with the pervasive “us versus them” mindset that is rampant in American law enforcement.

 

Police in America have become something they were never meant to be, and contrary to the gross racial narrative being pushed by mainstream media like CNN, the real truth is worse than some idiotic race-baiting. That angle is only pushed because it takes the focus off of the real problem, and makes the people responsible for what the police have become appear blameless. For example, in 2019, 1,004 people were shot and killed by police. The breakdown is 370 whites, 235 blacks, 158 Hispanic, 39 “other”, and 202 “unknown”. Those facts do not support the race narrative, yet those responsible for police corruption are happy to feed it to you in order to divide the public and gain political advantage.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2019/national/police-shootings-2019/

 What the narrative fails to ask is: Who is the Minneapolis Police Department Chief, who appointed him, and who has approved of and endorsed the department’s behavior? The Media narrative would have you believe that these police are a bunch of hillbilly, redneck MAGA types that can’t wait to literally stomp on innocent black folks. In truth, in Minneapolis and Minnesota, in cities and towns across the country where police abuses are most heinous and frequent, leftist and democrat policies and politicians are in charge. And also contrary to the Media narrative, most police chiefs are liberal democrats that stock their forces with corrupt union thugs that are only too happy to ignore their oath to the constitution in favor of illegal orders from Mayors, City Councils, and Governors. Just a quick look at the states continuing to impose illegal lockdowns, and using police stormtroopers to enforce them, will tell you just which political philosophy leads to abuse. Don’t believe me? Minnesota is deep blue, with a democrat Governor, Lt. Governor, and the infamous race-baiting Keith Ellison (D) as State Attorney General. Minneapolis is deep blue as well, with MPD police chief Medaria Arradondo ( a self-described “change agent” ) having been appointed by previous Mayor Betsy Hughes (D), overseen by current Mayor Jacob Frey (D), and approved by a city council comprised of 12 democrats and 1 Green Party member.

Everywhere you can see the abuse of power by police. For the last three years, corrupt and lawless federal police, the FBI, CIA, NSA, you name it, have been engaged in unconstitutional and illegal behavior. From James Comey and James Clapper to FBI agents like Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page, law enforcement has morphed into something akin to the Mafia, a “Cosa Notra”, or “our thing”, that knows no duty or law other than abusing their positions for more power. The power to destroy political opponents, settle petty personal crusades, and completely disregard the rights of American citizens starts at the top, and unsurprisingly it has trickled down into all of law enforcement.

The political right in this country is not blameless, either. The tired mantra of “it’s not all cops”, “the good people that make up the FBI”, and “we respect and support law enforcement” is responsible as well. Sure, it may not be all cops, federal agents and intelligence officers, but it might as well be. Why? Because evidently it’s enough of them to completely negate the actions of those that honor their oaths. When the occasional police officer comes forward to expose corruption or illegality, the Thick Blue Line makes sure they lose their jobs, reputation, and livelihood. It seems that “just following orders” is now the oath that is placed above all others, and history shows that to be a pathetic excuse for trampling the rights of others. People who lean right or libertarian are predisposed to expect law enforcement to be honorable and trustworthy, and in our current climate that can literally be a fatal mistake.

Really?

It’s beyond time to cast a distrustful and scornful eye on those that hold the power to imprison you and take your property or life. It’s time to question whether transferring multiple-tour combat veterans of Bush’s and Obama’s unending wars into domestic police forces is wise. It’s time to strip domestic law enforcement of surplus military weapons and gear that has become commonplace, because the mentality that comes with it is not healthy to maintaining a good relationship between a nation’s citizens and it’s police. Because nothing good can come out of the current state of America’s law enforcement.  And to those honorable and good cops or to the readers of this column that disagree with my position, it’s time to step up and prove that you actually believe in and honor the phrase “to protect and serve”…instead of “to punish and enslave”.

Charlottesville

I’m not going to engage in any defense of any of the idiots that descended on Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. By any name, fascist and racist political groups deserve no quarter in the arena of public debate. What strikes me as ironic is the reaction of mainstream media over this madness……..the same folks who have ignored racial political violence in the past few years have finally become enraged over Charlottesville.

Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists are pieces of dogshite. People who engage in violence to further their political goals are dogshite. People who make shields and clubs in their parent’s basements to take to political events are sad, human garbage. People who put values and belief in the most horrendous and murderous movements in history, like Hitler’s Socialism and Stalin or Mao’s Communism, are sad and pathetic creatures. When America’s system of education has churned out people who reject Capitalism and Individualism in favor of Socialism and Communism, and who identify as a member of a victim group or grievance class, it has failed.

For several years now I have written extensively on the danger and folly of Identity Politics. What we are now witnessing is the only outcome that a victimhood mentality can generate. Everyone engaged in this violence has something in common……namely that Identity and Political bent are based on your race, class, and group of grievance. When we sanction special treatment or special punishment based on Identity, we are allowing and encouraging this type of chaos and violence.

There is only one solution to the mounting problems of Identity and Racial Politics, and that is the same solution proposed by our Founders: That all are created equally in the eyes of our Creator, and that the rights of the Individual are greater than that of the Collective. Only when every American sees themselves and others as Individuals – deserving of respect and value – equal in opportunity and not outcome – can the events that occurred in Virginia be avoided.  Instead of falling for the controlled demolition of our Union by forces intent on dividing us, ask yourself: Who benefits from this? If you are reading this and you are a believer in Identity Politics, ask yourself: If my current philosophy is played through to its end, where will it lead?

If you cannot judge someone by the content of their individual character instead of the color of their skin, no matter what that color may be……..you are the problem, period.

A Change Is Gonna Come

Tyrants, cult leaders, sadistic dictators, and megalomaniacs have all had at least one thing in common…………they rewrite or erase history. A big part of Chairman Mao’s communist “revolution” was the attempted removal of anything indicative of China’s long and rich history. Art, books, ancient texts and artifacts, even the teachers who possessed knowledge of China’s past were purged.  For years this has also been the mission of ISIS and other Islamic groups across what was once referred to as “the cradle of civilization”. They are systematically razing….I mean destroying all trace of…..any and all ancient ruins and artifacts that they come across, forever removing known, and unknown, pieces of humanity’s hidden past. These are the actions of tyrannical ideologies, and their adherents, all in service to their crazed desire to limit knowledge and control the past, present, and future of those they hold power over. Sadly, the Cult of Social Justice – America’s new religion – has begun it’s purge.

Starting today, New Orleans has begun its newest project in service to the god of Identity Politics…….they’re removing the Civil War statues of historical figures like Robert E. Lee and others. You can even see pictures of the typical white beta-male SJW standing in front of one of these monuments holding the unintentionally-ironically-racist  “black lives matter” sign in support. This kind of thinking should have no place in America, a country founded by followers of The Enlightenment, where knowledge of history and human behavior is supposed to inform and educate the public. Instead, the same morons who think there is such a thing as “intersectional gender identity” now think that remembrance of actual history is too offensive and “problematic” to remain in our midst.

Like the muslims who dream of toppling the great cathedrals of Europe, the American Left dreams of redacting any trace of people and events that they deem offensive. Let me be clear, the Confederacy was representative of the awful realities of the South’s slave economy, and that includes all the bad stuff you’re thinking……..but that does not change the fact that this nation went to war with itself, almost destroyed itself, and then put itself back together – with over a million people dead or maimed as a result. It happened. There were famous, notable figures on both sides. Statues and monuments were raised all over the country because of the scale and scope of the war – and most importantly, because a history forgotten is a history repeated.

Like the three famous monkeys that are used to portray the age-old “hear no, speak no, see no evil”, the Progressive Left wishes to remove unpleasant references to our unpleasant past.  But just like gender, the true effect of multiculturalism, immigration, and entitlement spending…….simply lying, imposing twisted logic, and covering up the truth doesn’t make something real and actual disappear. Logic and reason do not cease to exist just because you replace it with childish emotion…….and the facts of history do not cease to exist just because you tear them down. Things like racism and tyranny are born from ignorance, and blotting out history breeds it.

Several months ago, while doing research for another column, I joked that a visit to Stone Mountain, Georgia would be a good idea……..because it wouldn’t be long before a giant black curtain is installed over the famed carved monument located there. Now that joke has become a prophecy. What part of our history is next to be removed and demolished in the name of childish sensitivity? Who decides what will be redacted, and for whose benefit? The supposed evolved-among-us can once again celebrate their success……….less knowledge, less freedom, less Socratic critical thinking, less free speech, less reminders of the unfortunate facts of human existence, less tolerance, and lesser intelligence…………all in accordance and unity with the greatest monsters that ever existed. Bravo, SJW morons………sharing the same philosophies as all of your favorite boogeymen. Will there be someone as dumb as you are in a hundred years to erase your stupidity from history? Let’s hope not……..because your ignorance is truly………..historic.

A League of Their Own

I’m going to point something out that everyone seems to be missing in the ridiculous debate about what spoiled-brat-turned-overrated-quarterback Colin Kaepernick is doing. If you live under a rock, Colin is the idiot from the San Francisco 49’ers that has decided to not stand for the National Anthem in protest of evil Whitey and in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.  I’ll type this slowly so everyone can understand……. He has no right to protest.

Now that you are aghast at my statement, and fuming at my insensitivity, let me clarify before you are “triggered” into running to a “Safe Space”. I assure you I am a supreme believer in the Bill of Rights, so I’ll explain.  You see, young Colin is what I like to call, “on the clock”, just like when you go to work. Now……let me ask you something…….do you have freedom of speech at work? Do you have freedom of expression? If your answer is “yes” then you are as stupid as the street bullies and thugs that populate the NFL nowadays.

I challenge all those reading this to perform their own exercise in NFL-style freedom. March into your Boss’s office, have a seat, and then proceed to tell him or her that you think they suck, are stupid, and that the company employing you is a joke. Then go back to your desk, or whatever, and count the minutes before you are escorted out of the workplace. Welcome to unemployment, and good luck collecting your O-Benefits with what your former employer puts on your pinkslip.

Guess why that happens? Because when you agree to work for someone you are signing away that part of your life to your employer……they, for all intents and purposes, own you……and you have agreed to act in accordance with their wishes and policies. So by all means enjoy your freedom……just know that it has consequences.

The absurdity of men who play a game for millions of dollars a year, more than most fans make in a lifetime, protesting the very Nation that affords them the lavish pay and lifestyles they enjoy, should be ridiculed at every opportunity. Add to that the inability of people to understand the hypocrisy of the positions of some of these intellectual giants due to their politically correct brainwashing, and you have a truly laughable situation.

The Grievance Class in this country, equal parts spoiled, rich celebrities/athletes and Social Justice Warriors, has become truly unhinged and disconnected from reality. So please, NFL crybabies……..keep “taking a knee”……just don’t be surprised when afterwards the people who pay you and buy your jerseys tell you to “take a hike”.
