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.
