This Was The Desired Outcome

 

You may remember times in the past where you felt proud of your country.  That the United States would stand strong.  That we would uphold our honor and legacy.

It’s hard to feel that way right now. 

This withdrawal from Afghanistan was done with a series of idiotic decisions, deliberately scrapping a pre-existing plan for withdrawal.   And now, we are told that we cannot rescue our own people.  People we should have been evacuating for a while now.  Afghanistan may be the graveyard of empires, but no empire left in such disarray.  How do you go from a stalemate to an abject rout?

It’s humiliating.  And I say that is the point.

The Left wants people who are either dulled into apathy or beaten down and humiliated into slaves begging to be beaten.  They want to break our pride, in hopes that we will become yet another cheap banana republic.   They want the USA to lose, until it is weak enough to rule.  They keep on desecrating every single cultural franchise they get involved with, since they want us to culturally revere being the most dysfunctional oppressed being that identifies as a slave.  What else is CRT but humiliation and anti-American propaganda.

The problem is that people are getting more outraged by this.  They expect people to welcome the  lash, since they view anyone outside of their bubble to be a drooling idiot.  More and more people are telling them to go directly to hell, do not pass go, do not collect my taxes.  Political regimes are highly vulnerable to preference cascades.  The dictator of Romania went from unquestioned ruler to a bullet-riddled corpse remarkably fast.  Our government relies on voluntary compliance with most laws.    Enough people stop following a law, and there is nothing that can be done.

For now, it is important to keep in mind that the Left views us as their chief enemy.   Any anti-American force is their friend.  If you have woke friends, consider if they would sell you out.  If so, it is important to make a planned withdrawal from the woke sphere, as opposed to a Biden-style rout.    Push back on the humiliation regularly – it is good for the the soul, and keeps the spark alive.  And get active in your local GOP organization so we can get solid antiwoke candidates on the ballot.

Never Surrender

    And this also leads to a real empire, and we won’t be a woke empire when that happens.

    Yes, assume all the bad things are intentional.  They are both corrupt and incompetent.

    Yes, the American left views us as enemies, they hate America.  We all need to understand this.  The Afghanistan debacle, the southern border debacle, the energy dependence debacle, these are not bad choices.  They are good, deliberate choices from the point of view of those who hate America. 

     We all need to stop giving participation credit and the benefit of a doubt to every leftist who makes a “bad decision”.  That begins with POTUS Biden.

    Thank you for recognizing this, Omega. And welcome to the Prophets-without-honor club.

    @bdb, is your local GOP organization particularly despicable, or is this your view towards GOP activists/party members/organizers in general?
