Political opportunity for the Big Left
The COVID-19 pandemic, the murder of George Floyd by rogue cops in Minneapolis, and hate for the Orange Man and his supporters has created a perfect storm of political opportunity for the Big Left, and they are pouncing. Remember the famous quote from Rahm Emanuel, former Obama chief of staff and mayor of crime-ridden Chicago: “Never let a good crisis go to waste”.
The idea that America is drowning in “systemic” racism is pushed relentlessly by the media, the Democrats, etc. We all remember Hillary’s “basket of deplorable’s”. CNN anchor Don Lemon once said “…the biggest terror threat in this country is white men”. More recently, actor/director Rob Reiner said “We will find out how many racists live in America” on election day.
I believe the establishment news media in this country has “systemically” given up any pretense of real journalism for the sake of their increasingly leftist ideology. They don’t inform, they push their agenda. I believe the permanent Washington D.C. bureaucracy “systemically” believe’s in it’s own supremacy, over elected officials and the American people. Deep state, the establishment, the swamp; whatever it’s called, it doesn’t serve the people, it serves itself. I believe our education establishment has been “systemically” teaching our kids to hate their own country, that America was founded of, by and for racism. They don’t educate, they indoctrinate.
Mobs of college indoctrinated young people, largely white, urban, entitled and clueless, are being manipulated and deployed by organizations like Black Lives Matter, Antifa and elements of the Big Left against our history, our culture, the very idea of America, possibly even our founding documents.
Our founders, despite their flaws, put forth some of the greatest political philosophy the world has ever known, ideas that continue to resonate with all people who love freedom. I hope and believe that our better selves will prevail, and the America I grew up in will be here for my grand kids.
