An Open Letter of Thanks from a Deplorable to Antifa and BLM

I don’t typically give the devil his due but these are not normal circumstances and I think I must.

In our hyperpolarized 50/50 America the economic and social disruption caused by the Wuhan flu should have been a very serious obstacle to an incumbent president’s re-election prospects.  Not that it would have made it impossible for the incumbent but rather that it would have given the challenger a great point of attack.  The loss of many jobs and businesses can easily be politicized during a campaign to the challenger’s advantage.  And that is why the President was so invested in restarting the economy as soon as possible.  This would allow enough time for the economic picture to be on the rebound by the November election.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the campaign.  When it became apparent that Bernie Sanders was not going to be the Democrat candidate for president, his most radical followers seemed to have pulled out Plan B.  And based on actual circumstances Plan B seems to have been a race war.  Unfortunately for their plans, the blue states, instead of quelling the riots, have instead embraced the radical racialist philosophy of BLM and have begun the process of demonizing the white population, dismantling their police departments and eventually setting up a network of warlord drug fiefdoms where their inner-city ghettos are currently situated.  Once these free-fire zones have been in place for a few years all the honest people will be forced to flee the cities and these former metropolises will join Detroit and Baltimore as third world hellholes and cautionary tales for Democrats who think they know how not to waste a crisis.

The upshot of all this is that the Bernie Bros have managed to unleash a Democrat mediated nightmare that almost certainly assures not only the President’s re-election but provides a scenario where down ticket Republicans get a serious boost in their election prospects too.  That is if they are smart enough to take advantage of it.  And being Republicans that is a big if.

But how did this happen?  If I were a conspiracy theorist, I’d hypothesize that false flag agents of the far right infiltrated Antifa and instigated the George Floyd rebellion in Minneapolis and then helped set up separate franchises in all the other blue cities.  It’s of course a ridiculous idea, but the outcome of the rioting is almost ideal as an object lesson for suburbanites who want to see what it would be like if Democrats are allowed to set racial policy across the country.  Not only do they now have to avoid the no-man’s land in their own city but they have to endure corporate training about their white privilege and unconscious bias.  Their kids will be endlessly propagandized at school and encouraged to denigrate their parents, heritage and history.

However, it happened, it truly is a miracle of biblical proportion.  It’s like that scene in the movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life” where the angel gives George Bailey a chance to see what life would be like if he had never been born.  Instead what has happened is the country has been given the chance to see what the Democrat’s 1619 policy will look like ahead of time.  Under their leadership rioting, looting and arson are now spectator sports for Antifa, BLM and the thugs who follow them around.  The protection that you have come to expect from the police will be gone and guns will be plentiful for criminals but still forbidden for you.  Economic growth will disappear for you, but slavery reparations will still have to be paid for, so expect your paycheck to get a lot smaller.  All in all, you’ll be reminded that you really did have a pretty wonderful life last year before the Wuhan flu and BLM took it all away.  And you’ll have a chance in November to put the Democrats in charge and make this nightmare a permanent situation or re-elect President Trump and let him end their reign of terror.  Tough choice.

So, thanks again Antifa, thanks BLM and thanks to all the Democrat mayors and governors who stood idly by while the mob looted, burned, beat and murdered everything in their path.  You’ve done in real life what a thousand commercials could not have done.  You have shown America the future.  Anyone with an IQ higher than the outside temperature in Minneapolis in January should now know exactly what to expect under a Democrat regime, an Orwellian dystopia involving racial violence, the end of free speech and economic serfdom.  Well done.

And if between now and November you get bored, feel free to burn down the cities again just for old times sake and to keep in practice.  If I might offer a suggestion, this time burn down the universities.  Start with Harvard.  I hear they have plenty of statues that need toppling.

How Big is the Post America Contingent?

The present civil war pits all the groups that think America is evil against all the normal Americans who believe in the country that saved the world from all the insanities that raged against humanity in the twentieth century.  It defeated fascism, Nazism, socialism, bolshevism, Maoism and all the other isms that attempted to enslave mankind.  Now the stupidest version of communism, Bernie Bro-ism, is being used as a club by the Clinton-Bush-Obama gang to destroy the country in an orgy of imbecility.

But it has to be admitted that the millennials are willing dupes, the most useful of idiots, swallowing the lies that the intersectional politburo has cobbled together and enthusiastically supporting if not actually leading the charge in the street theater that currently afflicts the urban centers of almost every American city.  These are the children of the Baby Boomers.  They were foolishly but mostly innocently handed over to the ministrations of the America-hating teachers, professors, college resident advisors and human resource assistants who have filled their heads with self-hatred and contempt for the greatest nation that has ever arisen on this planet.

How big is this contingent?  I’ll say that it is the majority of that generation.  In addition to this cohort we can add in all the grievance groups.  This includes feminists of all stripes, all of the LGBTQ, 85% to 90% of the black population, a majority of the Hispanic population, and a good chunk of the rest of the minority groups currently found in the country.  Interestingly, a proportion of that Hispanic population seems to be up for grabs.  The more prosperous and the socially conservative members of the group don’t really feel comfortable with the radical ideology of the far left and rightly believe that tearing down the country is not in their children’s best interests.  I would also include in this category the Indian and Chinese and other Asian groups that came to America to partake in the prosperity and stability of the American system.  Many of these people have seen the rioters destroying the lives of small business owners and they have seen the school systems of these cities destroyed by eliminating the recognition of excellence.  It is possible over the course of a decade or two that these will be the new cohort of the right but it will require a different type of Republican to make that case convincingly and not the spineless open borders fools who play right into the hands of the Amerca-haters.

And the final portion of the Post Americans are the Cloud People and their minions in corporate America.  The very rich and the managerial class have made common cause with the woke Post Americans and pay obeisance to the rioters and use their allies in the media to try to convince everyone else that resistance is futile.

So does this equal 270 electoral votes worth of Post Americans?  Interestingly, probably not!  As much as the Left has been trumpeting their demographics is destiny jazz for thirty years it seems that they haven’t quite dragged themselves over the finish line just yet.  What will be especially interesting to see is whether their share of the millennial vote actually sinks below what they got in 2016.  After all, I have to imagine even the brain-dead millennials have to be disturbed by an actual insurrection being played out in real time in their neighborhoods while the city governments sit back and let it happen.  This is not to say that it will stop most of them from backing it but just maybe the smarter ones will see through the doublespeak.

In places like New York, California and Illinois it should be an ironclad policy of the federal government to withhold any funding to pay for the repair of the damage that the local governments allowed in their urban centers.  This along with the destruction of the small and not so small businesses that were pushed over the edge to bankruptcy by the rioting and the COVID shutdowns should be the price these states should be forced to pay.  That type of reality check will give their voters something to think about.  Because going forward it is important to remember that if the Left is shown by the results of the election to have overplayed their hand then consolidating the votes of those who swing back to our side is the first order of business.  Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota are ground zero for recapturing America.  And not just for the presidential election.  Taking senate seats, house seats and governorships are part of what it will take to begin changing the way Americans think about their country.  They have to be made to understand that in a real way we are in a war.  And the violence and chaos they have seen on the streets will reinforce that understanding and only when they elect men who will protect them from violence and intimidation will they get back the sense of stability and safety that was the norm in America for over a hundred years.

So, the answer to the title question is that the Post America contingent is pretty damn big but not quite big enough to take over if we stand up and stop them.  Don’t forget to vote this November and bring your conservative friends along if they need a ride.

27JUL2020 – OCF Update

Over the weekend I got in touch with some friends of mine that I knew had expertise that I was interested in having showcased on the site.  One fellow is a gun guy and by this I mean that he is both a gun enthusiast and also a staunch Second Amendment partisan.  I told him I’m interested in articles on both topics.  I think there’s broad interest for these kind of articles.  So hopefully he’ll have the time to contribute a post or two on these subjects.

The other guy, among many other interests, is a student of the theory of technological innovation.  He’s interested in what kinds of corporate enterprises produce value like replacing a typewriter with a word processor and what kinds merely suck the life out of an industry like when Hollywood rolls out “Star Wars MCMXXXIX – The Search for Transgender Ewok Wokeness.”  He has very definite opinions and some of them seem counter intuitive to me but I find this stuff useful when I try to imagine how I would want to see the US government incentivize the re-industrialization  of America.

So these two guys will write the stuff they know about and since these aren’t my strong suits it will add more breadth to the site.

And by the same token if any of you folks out there are interested in contributing to the site either on a one off basis or more regularly then just let me know either in a comment or by e-mail to orionscoldfire(at)charter(dot)net and I’d love to hear your ideas and what you want to share.

As we head for August and inch closer to the fall campaign season we will all be bombarded with propaganda by both sides.  But I expect the Dems to reach ludicrous levels of untruth.  I fully expect to see a commercial claiming that President Trump is a space alien and that he eats puppies for breakfast.  I fully intend to intend to revel in their mendacity and am toying with the idea of having “Stupid Democrat Ad of the Week” or something like that.  But what is more important, I’m hoping to see the President’s campaign focus on the rioting and associated chaos and relentlessly paint the Democrats and Joe Biden with the guilt for what they have tolerated and even sponsored.  It seems to me that hammering that home should be all that is needed to give the sane fraction of the voting public what it needs to disqualify the Dems from running this country.  Whether that sane fraction has the votes or not to put us over the top is the question of the hour.

So stay tuned.  There should be lots of good stuff, political and cultural, coming down the pike.

The ZMan Speculates on Where We Are With This Election

The ZMan is not a Trump fan.  But he is interested in how the American electorate’s understanding of Left/Right politics is adapting to the new landscape we now live in.  And because he’s not a Trump partisan I find it especially confirmatory of my opinion that he also sees that the media are using exactly the same inflated numbers for Biden that they used for Hillary back in 2016.  It’s wonderful how today Biden is up by 7 points in Florida.  I remember back in 2016 there was such excitement because Florida had Hillary ahead early and everyone on the Left was haling it as the demographic inevitability that they’d been heralding for a decade.  And then they lost.  I guess the idea is to discourage voters by telling them their votes won’t matter.

The ZMan also notes that the rioting isn’t very popular with white voters almost everywhere.  Who knows maybe even Oregon and Washington voters may be fed up enough to send a message to their representatives on election day.  Maybe a representative or two get’s bounced in favor of a Republican here and there.  Wouldn’t that be something.  So anyway, it’s good to see the ZMan is seeing a lot of the same things I am.  It doesn’t hurt to have a neutral party confirm your opinion once in a while.

 

The Media Revolution

 

Never Let Your Enemy’s Stupidity Go to Waste

Maybe it’s because it’s July, my favorite time of the year.  And because I’m on vacation this week, which removes a very serious irritant in the way of my annoying boss.  But whatever the reason, I’m just not able to feel gloomy this week.  I’ve decided that I will look at the flip-side of all the horror going on and paint a rosy picture of the time ahead.

First of all, I read that the Federal government has declined to grant Minnesota a declaration of national emergency to allow them to receive federal funds to help them repair the estimated $500 million worth of damage done by Mayor Frey’s city sponsored arson/looting riot.  Putting that on top of the cost of all the police overtime needed to try to quell the ongoing gang wars currently depopulating the more toxic neighborhoods of Minneapolis and adding in the losses in city taxes associated with the closing of so many businesses, some leaving the city permanently and some unable to re-open at all, it paints a picture of a city on the rocks.  And just to make sure that things don’t get better, the city council’s decision to defund the police has a large number of officers opting for early retirement with the rest of them essentially refusing to perform any police function riskier than directing traffic.

The upshot of the police stepping back is the gangs have declared it open season on their enemies and their neighborhoods have become shooting galleries with, unfortunately, young children becoming a prominent part of the collateral damage to the civilian population.  The non-criminal population has complained to the city council and warned them that defunding the police is tantamount to starting a war in their neighborhoods but the council doesn’t really care about their problems so far.  They’re so excited by the whole police defunding narrative that they can’t see where this will lead.

I’m trying to guess what proportion of Minneapolis will have to leave to catch the city council’s attention.  Minneapolis has a population of 430,000 people.  If 20,000 people leave, which would be in line with what’s happening in New York (5%), that would surely put a serious dent in the tax base.  Especially since the ones leaving will be the upper middle class that has the wherewithal to leave.  Sometime this fall I’m imagining the sum total of the misery they’ve created is going to come crashing down on the mayor and city council.  That should be a sight to see.

And pretty much the same sequence of events is going to play out in all the blue states that played this game of revolution theater.  They incurred enormous costs and inflicted horrendous losses on their tax base, demoralized their citizens and destroyed their police forces.  So that come this fall when they are talking of opening school, they’ll be afraid to send their kids for fear of them not surviving the roaming bands of savages.  What a delightful time to be a law and order candidate!  Seriously, it may not matter in places like New York and California but I’m guessing that places like Minnesota, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania will be ripe for the picking for campaign ads featuring their favorite state politicians ordering the police to stand down while the mob flows over and annihilates the functional parts of their city like a column of army ants stripping the flesh off the bones of an unfortunate animal in their path.

And how about the statue nonsense?  I’m guessing the whole Columbus thing hasn’t helped the Democrats to any Italian-American votes.  And now that they’ve started taking down statues of Frederick Douglas and even Abraham Lincoln, I think it’s going to sink in for all but the stupidest that this isn’t about respect, it’s about trying to demoralize Americans and take away their heritage.  I think the President did a good job at Mount Rushmore to remind people of the heritage that men like Washington and Jefferson have left us and how stupid it would be to renounce men who created this amazing land and wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, two of the most important documents in the history of mankind.  Yes, yes.  I see amazing opportunities to point out to the voters and to Americans in general just how feckless the Democrats have become and how much damage they’ve inflicted on their own people.  And once the COVID lockdown continues in the blue states and business stays paralyzed, they are going to be in a bad place.

And on top of the negative ads it should go without saying that a positive message is even more important at a time like this.  It should be highlighted that recovery from the economic damage of the COVID lockdown is moving rapidly to bring us back to a strong economy in 2021.  Going along with this should be message for the base in terms of pushing back on the tech companies in their assault on the Right and protecting religious liberties.  Hopefully Barr and his team won’t prove to be completely useless and will finally move to punish the intelligence agency conspirators who caused chaos during the President’s whole first term.

So, cheer up.  The Democrats have left open their flank to incoming fire to such an extent that it will make the Battle of Marathon look like a game of pattycake.  Creepy Uncle Joe will be completely at a loss as to what to say.  I’m guessing he’ll just take a knee and stay there until the election is over.

07JUL2020 – Battlefield Report

One thing that can be said for open war.  It provides moral clarity.  Once the barbarians have begun looting and burning, all but the truly certifiable lunatics stop talking about reaching common ground and start talking about guns and ammo.

The lower echelons of the urban elite are starting to get nervous about their vulnerability to roving mobs.  They’re asking their right-wing friends, the ones that have them anyway, how exactly you go about obtaining a gun.  The ones that only have leftists for friends will have to ask Siri or Alexa.  That should be an interesting lecture on gun control.

The major cities with their handcuffed police departments and Democrat mayors are begging the gang-bangers to stop shooting little kids.  Funny how that doesn’t seem to have much effect on hardened criminals without the threat of arrest.  The murders during June skyrocketed and we can only assume that the long hot summer will provide little in the way of relief.  Now you would think that all this dysfunction would get a bunch of Republicans elected as mayors.  But you would be wrong. Places like Atlanta and Chicago will keep voting in Democrats until their cities turn into Detroit.

The idiot leftists have now started to tear down statues of black heroes like Frederick Douglass.  Can we assume that MLK and Malcolm X are next?  Honestly, the true stupidity of these people must be breath taking.  We are dealing with paleolithic levels of social ignorance.  How do these people even survive from day to day?

All this is very interesting but the important question is how this should be handled by the President over the summer and fall to provide the maximum opportunity for a teachable moment for voters who suddenly aren’t so sure that electing Bill de Blasio or Jacob Frey was such a good idea after all.

I linked to that article about Minnesota’s governor asking President Trump to declare Minneapolis a national disaster area to allow $500 million worth of damage from the looting and burning to be paid for by the federal government.  I’m guessing that the answer to that one should be no.

And how about New York City?  The looting alone must have been hundreds of millions of dollars of losses and the arson damage to mid-town Manhattan property would be an astronomical sum.  I’d have to go with no on this one too.

Seattle?  St. Louis?  Atlanta?  Baltimore?  Chicago?  Los Angeles?  Funny thing, we’re batting a thousand here.  All no!  Anyplace where a mayor and or a governor decided to stand the police force down and just let the mob loot and burn, I’d say was a clear-cut case of government abandonment of public safety.  Those places need to impeach their elected officials and then elect someone who won’t allow the mob to run riot.

But in reality, no amount of contrition will help.  These cities are ungovernable.  As long as you have a culture that subsidizes hundreds of thousands of people who don’t work, you’ll find votes for the party handing out the welfare money.  And when these people don’t consider themselves Americans then you will have a mob ready to riot when the excuse surfaces.  It’s probably realistic to assume that these places are destined to become like Detroit.  If that is the case it is best to figure out how to manage that situation instead of pretending, we can fix them.

What President Trump has to do is provide the country with a vision of how the productive and law-abiding sections of the country can avoid being victimized by the non-productive and criminal elements.  He’ll need to target BLM and antifa and dismantle them.  Unfortunately, this will require AG William Barr to do something constructive and in less than a decade which currently doesn’t seem to be his strong suit.  But it has to be done.  The hard working and long-suffering people of this country are exhausted from all this chaos.  We’ve had enough.  And we don’t want to hear that all this is our fault.  We don’t believe that anymore.  If a criminal like George Floyd was murdered by a criminal cop then the cop should be treated just the way Floyd was.  He should have his day in court and then probably spend several decades in prison.  But if the mob decides that this is an excuse to burn down their city then it is up to the city to stop them with force, up to and including lethal force.  If they won’t then any normal individual will reason that these cities are war zones and only a fool would live and raise a family in a place like that.

This should be an interesting week.

2020 Choice – Stand or Grovel

This election will be the perfect indicator of whether or not we have been overwhelmed by the rot that has beset our institutions for the last hundred years.  A starker choice could not be imagined.  The foaming-at-the-mouth Left has dropped the mask completely.  They have embraced the mob in all its nihilistic rage and unleashed it on the citizens of the blue states and the blue cities.  Seattle has gone as far as setting up a killing zone in their capitol where the mob patrols with machine guns and doles out death to the black lives that supposedly they are representing.  It’s like something out of Pol Pot.

If the election does go to Biden you can argue whether voter fraud, or dislike of President Trump by white women or demographics was the deciding factor but what will be undeniable is that a new nation will be dominant inside the geographic boundaries of what used to be America.  The millennials will soon be the dominant cohort within the American demographic and if they decide that what is going on in the streets of our cities is acceptable then nothing will deflect us from the course that the Left is plotting.

So let’s take it one step further, even if President Trump wins this election but only just barely, that still tells me that we are changing for the worse.  What happened in 1968, the rioting and the arson, was still an aberration that shocked the country and galvanized the population to support a law and order candidate in President Nixon, to clean up the problem.  If we don’t see the same reaction to the even more disturbing violence and anarchy gripping our cities this year then it speaks of a loss of will.

Someone might say that it is the propaganda by the media and the kowtowing by the corporations that is misleading Americans.  That these normal people have been fooled by the narrative that the rioting is a reasonable reaction to systemic racism in the police and in American society.  But that is nonsense.  Only someone already brainwashed by the Left could mistake what is happening for reasonable.  Anyone with even a trace of self-respect and an iota of common sense would see what’s happening as an attack on the foundations of our identity and the symbols of the greatest and best country in the history of mankind.

If we do not see a resounding victory for the Right then we are heading down a road to serfdom.  It is possible that through the efforts of a Trump administration we can begin to change direction and change the institutions that have brought about this problem.  With the right Supreme Court and with legislation and enforcement by the DOJ many harmful practices could be suppressed.  But with the current slender majority in the Senate and the Democrat majority in the House and the unreliable nature of the Supreme Court it seems unlikely that much will be done.

So that is why I see this election as a barometer.  If President Trump wins a decisive victory and we pick up seats in the Senate and retake the majority in the House then I see a sliver of hope that there is still enough of the silent majority to allow us to try and turn this thing around together as the United States of America.  If that happens, we stand.  Anything else tells me that the future will require groveling and that is something I won’t stick around for.

Politico Is Getting Nervous Again Already

I love it when all the fake polls have Creepy Uncle Joe up by a million points and yet they get upset when all the Republicans don’t seem phased at all.  Politico goes around and asks all the Republicans in the country if they are ready to concede and they answer with the phrase Trump Landslide.  Looks like I might be right about how soccer moms react when Antifa and BLM heads into the suburbs.  They look for someone who will hold them off.

But, but terrible poll results!  Fake.  COVID-19 resurgence!  Nope.  Cities burning!  Your cities.  It’s the economy stupid!  It’s improving by the day.

What’s next?  Flaming hail from the sky?  Well fireworks are always nice around the 4th of July.

Have They Had Enough Yet?

Now that most of arson fires have gone out and Antifa is back in its parents’ basements, I’ve started to think about how the President’s campaign should address the riots.  Naturally there will be the usual lip service to the need to correct problems with police practices and ways of identifying rogue officers, etc., etc., etc.

But if I were framing the argument, I’d put it to the voters like this.  Even knowing that there are dishonest and even criminal police officers out there, would you rather live in a place policed by the current police force or by some combination of BLM and Antifa?

In places like Seattle, San Francisco, Portland and Minneapolis they might vote for BLM and Antifa.  But they won’t in Michigan or Pennsylvania or even Wisconsin.  Hell, even most of the people in Minnesota outside of Minneapolis must be appalled.  The people in those states watched as the mayors of blue cities in their states capitulated to the rioters and let them loot stores and burn them down.  Even the governors treated the rioters with kid gloves hesitating to let the National Guard subdue the protests and arrest the perpetrators.  In these places I’m guessing that the dominant sentiment is how do we get new governors who will protect us from the monster that the progressive cities have created.  They’ve seen that the next place the rioters want to go is into the suburbs and countryside to terrorize the non-urban populations surrounding their hellhole homes.

I’d have a commercial that features Minneapolis and New York City in flames and police chiefs, mayors, governors and Joe Biden on their knees.  I’d show that Minneapolis police precinct being abandoned and then that idiot Mayor Frey running away from a crowd of BLM and Antifa followers.

And as valuable as this will be in the Presidential campaign, I think it will also be effective for the rest of the ticket.  Races for mayor and governor of several cities and states should be affected by the actions that several of the incumbents took during the riots.  And even office holders who aren’t up for re-election soon should worry that recall votes may be started against them.  As for congressional and senate seats, the same kind of commercials showing Pelosi and Schumer on their knees wearing their matching colorful prayer shawls should be highly effective.

And I’d make sure that the film clips showed all the gory details.  Show the picture of the white Antifa guys taking a sledge hammer to the security gates to let the looters into a store.  And the Antifa guys with the rock hammers tearing up curbstones to assault the police with.  Show that shop owner in Dallas crumpled on the sidewalk like a dead animal.  Show the old woman in Buffalo being beaten with a two by four by thugs.  Show the woman in Minneapolis in a wheelchair being tormented by a mob and doused with a fire extinguisher.  Show the footage of the retired police captain from St. Louis being gunned down trying to protect his friend’s store.  This one should be especially poignant considering that the officer is black.

Show a couple of the interviews with the sick old ladies living in the inner city neighborhoods that have just been looted and burned and listen to them cry because now their grocery store and their drug store are gone and they have to travel an hour by bus to get to a place that isn’t burned out.

Play the interview with the black businessman in Minneapolis whose sports bar was gutted and torched, whose life savings are now gone.

I’ve even got the tag line to end each of these commercials:

“Had enough?  Vote Republican and stop the madness.”

And all this has the added benefit that it’s actually 100% true.  Even in blue states the majority of the voters aren’t inner city denizens.  Most of the voters are middle- and working-class people.  When they finally have had enough of the madness, they will vote for someone who will stop it.  So, the only question is, have they had enough yet?

UPDATE:

I held this up last night to see how the fallout from the Atlanta police arrest killing would play out.  This situation is going to repeat indefinitely.  Apparently, the new dynamic for black criminals is to resist arrest by any and all means.  Apparently suicide by cop is the new normal and considering the lives some of these folks live it probably doesn’t seem like a bad option.  That is going to make the BLM crowd shout twice as loud.  But it still leaves the same choice for the voters.  If you’re a middle-class American living in the suburbs are you happier with the police trying to maintain some semblance of order in the dangerous Democrat cities or would you like there to be warlords and thug armies in charge like in Mexico and other failed states.  Seems a pretty easy answer but maybe knuckling under is the new American way.  Time will tell.

Take That Knee Joe

Well, if you’re going to have a civil war you need two sets of uniforms, flags and songs to go with it.  The Left will certainly have no problem getting the degenerate music industry to sing them songs.  If we’re lucky Toby Keith will let us use the Angry American.  We haven’t finished the whole duplication process but I guess we can have the American flag all to ourselves.  Apparently, leftists will kneel to avoid recognizing the flag as their own.  Initially we’ll see the patrons at sports games start segregating between those who stand and those who don’t.  Maybe the two sides can be called the Stand-Up-Right and the Left-On-Its-Knees.  But how about NASCAR and the NHL?  It’s entirely possible that even these organizations will knuckle under and start taking a knee during the anthem.  I’m guessing that NFL attendance and viewership will plummet again this year.

But that opens up opportunities to events and organizations that are willing to honor the flag and thereby take advantage of a legitimate American symbol that can’t be easily vilified in the eyes of the normal American population.  It makes perfect sense for us to maximize the use of the flag while our enemies will have to virtue signal on their knees.  Even the Democrat and Republican conventions this year should be a real eye opener.  One will be patriotic and celebratory, the other will be an exhibition of submission and shame.  How can we ask for more than that?

I feel kind of inspired.  I think I’ll look into a fifty foot flag pole and a nice big flag.  Who knows, maybe I’ll decide to paint a big Old Glory on the side of my house.  One side doesn’t have windows and would be perfect as a canvas.

But the point is we own the flag and playing the anthem can be our own celebration.  We don’t have to be guilty or ashamed we can just feel proud that the Left has abandoned it.  For instance, if at the Republican convention Mitt Romney takes a knee during the anthem we should have two really big guys grab him by the arms and legs and toss him onto the street while the whole thing is filmed on the big screen for everyone to cheer.

It seems perfectly clear that the Left is going to go all out on radicalizing the Anti-American stance of the Democrat party during this election season.  And I think it’s a fantastic idea.  We should embrace it with both arms and draw the comparison wherever and whenever the opportunity arises.  For starters we should compare the results in leftist jurisdictions like Minneapolis and New York City with places like Boise ID and Cheyenne WY.  Instead of looting and arson you had a well-armed citizenry present to make sure “protestors” stayed peaceful.

That should be the message that President Trump and the Republicans send to the swing states.  They have a choice to embrace freedom, law and order and normalcy with us or they can go with the Democrats and kneel to their new masters, the depraved angry mob that will take everything they have; their wealth, their homes, their freedom, their children and eventually their lives and will still want more.

You’d think it would be a pretty easy choice.  But we don’t have the megaphone they do.  We’re going to have to pay for our message to get out while theirs will be trumpeted by every branch and tendril of the Woke Media.  From Google, Facebook and Twitter to the tv networks and newspapers there will be only one message.  They will try to frighten and shame women and weak men into submission to their narrative of defeat.

My bets on us.  I notice they’ve been hyping the Biden numbers lately.  I hope they can get the betting odds long on Trump so I can make some decent money when he wins.  I made money in 2016 but not enough.  Hopefully this time I can make a bundle.  Take that knee Joe, take that knee.
