Dr. Bastiat explains President Biden’s Morehouse college speech

 

If you prefer video or audio, the below clip succinctly and articulately explains the Democratic Party’s tactics with regard to mobilizing minorities, immigrants and lefty white women.

I hate writing down the exact word-for-word transcript of spoken speech, so I will paraphrase.

In Sun Tzu’s Art of War, he mentioned that the truest path to victory is not to kill your enemy or burn down his cities, but to convince him that they can’t win. The path to victory is thus to destroy hope. The modern left’s strategy is odd because they destroy the hope of the people in their own coalition. They convince blacks that they can’t get ahead without affirmative action, that women are always paid less than men, and that we will all die of global warming.

This leads to groups of angry young people marching on college campuses or burning buildings down because they don’t have hope. This also destroys the golden goose of American entrepreneurialism because everyone down the street thinks they can do something better than the other guy.

Also, President Wilson is bad. Like, really really bad.

    Your summary of Dr. Bastiat’s summary of Dementia Joe’s speech is the most succinct version of the actual Democratic platform that I have ever heard.

    This is indeed a brilliant point. Bastiat is a LOT smarter than he looks.

    Being smart is only useful as far as Truth is concerned. Dr. Bastiat has a very high I.Q. which is great but he observes politics Truthfully so his observations are useful.
