I have no answer, but a question: What will happen when the Democrats lose control of the Progressive monster they have created?
The monster has several heads, including the pod-people infesting education, Obama’s army in the streets, the union of Party and media, the co-option of Big Tech by Big Government, and now the supremacy of a government-within-a-government, the “intel community.”
We see now the pinnacle of this development — a supine, ridiculous administration feebly figure-headed by a doddering fool, subject to zero ridicule by the state-controlled media, defended by Big Tech censorship (nope, no government censorship here, that’s all private sector, Bub!) — all in the service of a literal cabal, literally behind the scenes, literally insulated from Republic-style representation, accountability, or even identification. The left has won — they are unassailable and, but for the widespread armament of millions of Americans, they would be omnipotent in this human sphere. They control the horizontal and the vertical.
Which famous tragedy is this? At the moment of supreme triumph, the winner’s own nature destroys him. In a Greek tragedy, we might survive. In a Shakespearean tragedy, I suppose we all die, which sounds about right. It is not as though the failure of the Republican will leave the Republicans standing.
Democrats have summoned a demon and cackled as it mote the right, decency, justice, education, our language, culture, the Republic, elections, and the economy. The demon will not go back into its box willingly, and the process to kill it has been pre-emptively slain. Should a stolen election threaten to become un-stolen, a coalition of the intel community, the deep state, the Pentagon, Big Tech, the media, and a seemingly un-prosecutable Brownshirt mob will enforce the decision of the ruling cabal — there is no remedy this side of unthinkable (and certainly unprintable) preparations and response.
Decent people are in a pickle, and now so are the indecent. Political violence being overlooked, then overseen, then flat-out sponsored by the government is the last stage of bread and circuses. The demons of the Democrat party have fostered an addiction among their base to excitement, spectacle, and instant gratification. Oh, and violence. Don’t like speech? Threaten the speaker, and if the government won’t shut him up, then the mob will.
War is coming. It will not be started by the right — you could say that is has already been started by the left. Is it any less a war if they only wage it in the streets, with fire and beatings, and during election seasons?
Nothing that any Republican has said — any — compares to the mob incitement of Schumer, Pelosi, Waters, and so on. It only takes one person to set a house afire, no matter how many people live in it.Published in
