2020 was a watershed year for how Americans thought about their country. In the same year we witnessed:
- the government’s tyrannical use of lockdowns over the COVID virus,
- federal and local law enforcement’s abandonment of innocent citizens to the homicidal mobs that were unleashed by the George Floyd madness and
- the spectacle of wholesale voter fraud being openly displayed in the Democrat strongholds of swing states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Arizona during the presidential election.
2022 just reinforced the sense that normal Americans no longer have a say in how their government is run and in fact are viewed as the enemy by the federal bureaucracy, the media, academia, the public-school teachers and big business. If any final proof was needed that there is a far-reaching conspiracy to disenfranchise and discredit normal Americans then reading the reports from Elon Musk on how the government and Twitter management suppressed and silenced any conservative voices over COVID or any other meaningful dissent should cover that nicely.
Before 2020 we thought that we were vying with the Left for control of the levers of power in an America that was troubled but fixable. After 2020 many, many of us know that the whole political set-up is a sham. We know that the federal courts and Department of Justice are a sham that provides a two-tier system of justice depending on whether you are a Democrat operative or not. We know that vote counting can be drawn out for days or weeks in order to “find” additional votes needed to change an election result.
We’ve seen urban crime become a joke with revolving door justice for repeat offenders who commit anything from massive retail theft to gang banging murder. But we’ve seen political enemies jailed without hope of bail for years at a time for misdemeanors like trespassing. And we’ve watched a feckless military turn the withdrawal from Afghanistan into a rout while bringing us to the brink of nuclear war in the Ukraine because they don’t like Putin’s policy on gays. We’ve seen our economy cratered and inflation destroy our standard of living, because nitwit greens think fossil fuels are evil.
We’ve watched all this and we’ve watched half the country approve of all this.
So, what’s my point?
My point is you can’t unsee this.
There are probably at least thirty percent of the people in this country that will never believe in the old concept of the United States again. That belief has been sand blasted out of them. All that’s left is the reality of what really goes on here. Any appeals to their patriotic spirit or their feelings of fellowship with their fellow Americans will at most summon up a feeling of nausea. All of their loyalty is now for their friends and family or whatever local community of normal people that they belong to. Their feeling of belonging to a group that includes people who voted for Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi is weaker than the bonds they share with Jeffrey Dahmer or some other deranged psychopath.
Their opinion of government organizations like the CDC, FBI and IRS corresponds to what they used to think about the KGB, the Mafia or al Qaeda. They know they are filled with evil unscrupulous people working against their interests.
And what will be the result of this change in feelings toward this country?
Well, I have to confess I don’t know. Maybe nothing. Our enemies may be so much smarter and more powerful than us that our hatred of them is completely meaningless. They will bury us and change over this country into the global paradise they intend where even our graves will be blotted out when they build back better. Maybe they’ll go from strength to strength and never even look back. So be it.
But I tend to doubt it. For one thing they don’t really seem to be that smart. They believe in things like green energy that just don’t make any real sense. And the people they favor (like the trans freaks) are extremely dysfunctional. And the way they run their cities borders on the insane. I tend to believe if we leave them to their own devices without trying to fix their mistakes, they’ll run themselves into a pretty deep ditch sooner or later. My way of thinking is that we should concentrate on the places we control and do our best to exclude the Left and their policies to the best of our abilities. And when they crash their areas be ready to salvage what can be saved and let the rest sink back into cannibalism.
So that’s my takeaway. Old America is dead and buried. We need to take advantage of the real world we live in now without sentiment or false ideas about who our countrymen are. The Left is our enemy and seeing them fail is a victory for us. Whatever we can game out of the current system is to our advantage but the idea of being treated fairly by the powers that be is nonsense. Wake up and see things for how they really are and you’ll stand a better chance of surviving in the world that is.
