Quote Of The Day

Last week, my good friend Mustang stated the following at GeeeZ:
I would not want the sun to set at the end of today with anyone on the right thinking that the reality of the present has only recently manifested itself. Have we forgotten that when the American people rejected socialism almost as frequently as they rejected William Jennings Bryan, that the socialist leaders announced, in the late 1940s, that they intended to seize our education system so that they could grow their own future socialists? Well, they have. Generation after generation has been the subject of leftist brainwashing in disguise of education. As each beguiled generation grew into adulthood and became parents themselves, they, in turn, became the willing participants of the socialist plan until presently, we are left with only a few parents who object to what is going on inside our schools. 
Generation after generation of programmed young people who grew into adulthood to become the neo-Communist members of Congress, who occupied judgeships, who led the government’s many departments and agencies, who advanced to become four-star generals, journalists, and newscasters, who became the owners and operators of America media corporations, each of whom has fed newer generations with Marxist filth, each one breaking down our society into its many parts so that people today imagines that we have a right to choose and modify our biological identity, and that anyone who disagrees with their reality is a right-wing racist, and that God is merely a figment of our imaginations. 

It is today too late to save America from herself. The misery of future generations is already guaranteed. America is already destroyed. Biden is proof of that — he and the tens of millions of people who subscribe to the foolish arguments of the new left. A new America will arise from this chaos: one whose flag will have a hammer and sickle in one corner and a raised black fist in the other. Welcome to the new Kenya, folks. The inmates have taken over the asylum. 
Is Mustang correct in his assertions, particularly that there is no hope for the future of our republic? And if there is hope to counter what Mustang informs us has taken place, how exactly can we bring that hope to fruition?

  1. Its hard to argue with Mustang, but I still have hope. What we see on TV is not all of America. That is just the America the Infotainment Media Complex want us to see.

    I do think our future is tribal, fractured and troubled.

    1. I agree with your last sentence, but do not share your optimism. American society across the political spectrum is fat, lazy, entitled....and led by their feelings.

    5. I'm with ED and will never give up at least hoping for better and, frankly, seeing people finally, slowly waking up. Nobody can see this border situation and not care that it's going to destroy America left as it is. Nobody loves paying higher prices for gas. Nobody likes seeing jobs lost and corporations fleeing again due to higher taxes again....I have Easter European friends lamenting that they came to America to escape what Biden's trying to do here...it breaks my heart because I've always been so proud that they picked America to run to when they saw what was happening in their countries. I look for the positives, of which there are many, and increasing, and laugh at the Left's negativity and ridiculous mischaracterizations. I mean who really believes BIDEN INHERITED A TERRIBLE ECONOMY? or BIDEN INHERITED THE BORDER PROBLEM? You have to be a TOTAL MORON to not know the truth on just those two topics!! too much said..all to say I'm with Ed on this.

    6. Z,
      Nobody can see this border situation and not care that it's going to destroy America left as it is.

      How much are the mainstream media outlets covering the situation at the border? Front and center?

      Delete
    7. and THEREIN lies THE biggest problem, AOW...yes, you nailed it correctly. You put on leftwing news and they don't cover anything that could possibly make Biden look bad. CNN barely covers the border; gas prices; possible debt that could stymie all growth..etc. NOTHING. But they SURE do run the COVID numbers 24/7. I get flack from my bloggers for watching CNN a few minutes a day and the reason I do is COMIC RELIEF. I always end up laughing at the mischaracterizations and the fact that CNN has MAYBE 2 never-Trumping conservatives a WEEK, FOX has 20 really articulate leftwingers on all day long, every day, and people call FOX biased :-) You just have to laugh!!

      Delete
    8. If you only watch CNN for a couple minutes 'comic relief', how do you know what they cover?

    9. Statistical random sampling isn't accurate? Somebody better inform the Quality Control community...

    12. DUCKY, hilarious. Yes, it's enough...absolutely! Almost any minute of any given day the mischaracterizations, the smugness, the lack of ANY Conservative thought on a cable news channel supposedly pro Democracy, calling Republicans undemocratic because they don't support Cheney in a leadership position when she disagrees with 95% of Republicans? Ya, pretty funny! You remain so literal that, too, makes me laugh!! OKAY, DUCKY! FIVE MINUTES! OKAY?!! Hoping you're feeling better.

  2. It's not just that they have been taught socialism, it's that they have been taught not to think at all, but merely to parrot memes - to say what they have been told to say, understanding none of it, but believing all of it.

    I once had a discussion with my niece, who is 45 years old and quite bright. College graduate. The discussion revolved around the word "radical" which I defined for her from the dictionary. She said that was not what she meant when she said something was radical. I asked her what she meant, and she could not respond. She merely said that she knew what she meant but could not explain it, and it wasn't what I had described.

    She had been instructed to say something was radical. When I called her on it she could not defend her position, because she did not know why she held her position.

      There are tens of thousands -- if not more -- mind-numbed as your niece is. I see the same in my own family. **sigh**

  3. Silver, CI et al...

    Like you, I am not bullish on where we are headed. The "woke left" is too left and the "wing nut right" too far right.

    And neither side is willing to give an inch. Because they are 100% confident in their own location on the political spectrum.

    I'm reminded of Reagan's talks with Gorbachev years ago.

    Reagan saw him as an enemy, as I'm sure Gorbachev saw Reagan. And yet somehow they were able to set those views aside, despite enormous differences, to come to an agreement to cut the number of nuclear weapons each country had.

    How did it happen? Perhaps a clue lies in something President Reagan told Gorbachev as they met during one meeting in the Kremlin. Speaking of Gorbachev's book "Perestroika", Reagan said "I found much in it that I could agree with.”

    Three things stand out, at least to me...

    1. Reagan had read and worked to understand the views of Gorbachev, the leader of what he had called the "Evil Empire."

    2. Reagan found points of agreement in Gorbachev's views, instead of dismissing everything he wrote as out of hand, simply because it came from a person with a profoundly different worldview.

    3. Reagan dismissed the binary worldview we are essentially seeing today that says anything you want, or say is wrong. Period.

    Can we move forward?

    Of course we can. Are we willing to do so? That's a harder question.

    1. Narratives, expediency and self-serving myths and fairy tales rule where principles once stood firm [or at least seemed to]. A willingness to 'move forward', requires the cognitive ability to hold not just your political opposition accountable, but your own camp as well.....and to hold fast to solid principles, rather than what's trendy in the faux-intellectual circles and gangs of charlatans and grifters.

      It hasn't been appropriate for some time now, to link Reagan with the Right Wing.

      Delete
    2. I agree with you both. The lunatics are running the asylum on both ends of the spectrum.

      The crisis is especially acute on the right. The left knows what it stands for, runs on those beliefs, and passes them into law every chance they get.

      What do Republicans and the right stand for? It sure as hell aint conservatism, smaller government and fiscal responsibility.

      Delete
    3. "What do Republicans and the right stand for?"

      That Silver is the 26 trillion dollar question.

      Apart from "Owning the libs", I have no idea how to answer your question.

    4. I think we'll see more division amongst the Left in the coming months, between the Corporatist Left and faux-Socialist Left....but the Right has devolved into the vanilla Statists on one side, and the revamped Know-Nothings on the other.

      The duopoloy is soundly broken....the acolytes and adherents just don't seem to recognize it yet.

  4. The Biden administration announced Friday it would begin to restrict travel from India on Tuesday as the world’s second-most populated country suffers an overwhelming surge in coronavirus cases.
    “On the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the administration will restrict travel from India starting immediately,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement. “The policy will be implemented in light of extraordinarily high COVID-19 caseloads and multiple variants circulating in India. The policy will take effect on Tuesday, May 4.”
    The travel ban comes a year after Biden vilified such restrictions as xenophobic when pursued by President Donald Trump while the Wuhan virus began to mutate into a global pandemic from China.


    The hypocrisy is astounding, How come the left isn’t so Up In Arms like they were when Trump restricted travel ?
    I would say that Trumps action against China was quicker when considering he news about the virus in November 2019.


    ...... Meanwhile his immigration policy has created a Super spreader for the Wuhan Covid-19 virus and it's new mutations from Central and South America.
    Chyna Joe’s hypocrisy and lies are getting thin enough that far left is starting to see through them now and starting to point them out and the "misspeaks" that were ignored are getting louder. Tide is turning, slow as crap, but it is turning.
    Hy Joey, now you won't have to worry about running into a slight Indian accent at 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts in the future------Chyna Joei & “Kamala Commie” Harris have a new plan------from now on when you go to any gas station or any where else----you will need to be able to speak Chinese..
    Monkey see Monkey do Joe would be smart to copy Trump more often. He doesn't get anything right when he listens to himself or “Doctor” Jill, or the Marxist idiots from his Commie Party.
    China Joe Biden is So Inept, that he’s not a capable of being our president..he's a Senile Old Coot, who is selling out America

    1. India's "disasterous" level of pandemic, reportedly threatening to "destabilaze" the social status of that nation, needs to be put into proportion. The media is reporting really big numbers, but they are not reporting the contest in which those numbers exist.

      India has 1.4 billion people. From the beginning of the pandemic they have incurred 17 million cases of Covid. That certainly is larger than 200,000 in the US. But as a percentage of the population there is a vastly different picture.

      India's cases are 1.2% if the nation's population, while US cases represent 10% of the population.

      India is incurring 400,000 cases per day, 28.5 per 100,000 of the population. The US during the peak of the pandemic incurred 249,669 cases in a day, 75.65 cases per 100,000 population.

      That is not to belittle the suffering of the people in India, but the media is not painting an accurate picture of what is happening in that country.

    2. I meant to type US 32 million cases, which is 10% of the population. India is 117 million, not 17 million. Typing gets a little sketchy when you have Parkinson's.

  5. Jayhawk,
    Thank you for that context. You dashed that off probably in a few minutes. Why can't our Infotainment Media Complex do the same?

    1. I never trusted India's official numbers, but even if they were reliable, per capita can sometimes be distracting. Cases of covid are clustered, if you're near an outbreak it doesn't matter how many thousands of population there are in unffected rural areas.

      Delete
    2. Per capita numbers can indeed distract from the message of fear and panic that is the constant drumbeat in today's media. The media is quoting these numbers as existing "in India," not as being made of of clusters in a nation of primarily small infection rates. As always, jez, you defend the message of the terrorist media.

      Delete
    3. I defend nothing, I introduce nuance. Nuance didn't used to be such a novelty, before Raegan I guess. It was before my time, but you should remember...

    4. So wonderfully logical Jayhawk. You have a ton of people, you're likely to have a ton of Covid cases. And yet it is sad and devastating.

      Brazil, another hotspot, for comparison is running at roughly 7% of the population "officially" having had Covid and a death rate of .02%.

  7. I like to pull back and open up the lens a bit. The republicans are useless, dems are evil. repubs had ample opportunity to do something for America, especially rolling back the democrat communist measures. Repeal obamacare for instance which they all promised to do if elected and then tossed their finger up in our face. Bush had congress for 6 years, Trump for 2. The repubs not only did nothing useful, they actually helped with the America dismantling. Why would expect that to change? Couple repubs still tossing out lip service and selling books? Insulting.
    Then pull the lens back and start 1960. LBJ, Carter, Clinton, Obama. Outside of some of obama being rolled back by DJT (that probably will be reimplemented the next 4 years) the commies have taken 2 or 5 steps forward and the repubs no steps backward.
    We're on a path here folks. We're on a river in a canoe approaching a large waterfall and our paddles are useless to stop use let alone turn us around.
    That said I think some decent living can be found in the red states probably for another 20 years? which would be fine by me. I can't do anything about future generations. They will live with their choices.

    Here's an interesting theory. Dems destroying dem strongholds. NYC, LA, San Fran, NWest, etc. Used to be expensive real estate now being vacated in haste by people who can't take the pain. The result will be a massive real estate grab on the cheap, and in places like Manhattan, all they need do is roll back the commie policies and let the property flot back up to Park Place prices. Easy peasy. Secondly, the libtards fleeing the dem areas are flooding into red areas and they will vote to turn those places into the hellholes they fled because they are stupid morons.
    The dems get 2 for the price of zero.

    6. btw- I FINALLY figured out the DNC's love affair with Identity Politics. Democrats can't allow African-Americans or Hispanic-Americans into the concrete universal category currently known as "Americans". All the Republican's I know have already synthesized the Thesis and Anti-thesis. But Democrats don't see them that way. Tsk-Tsk. How RACIST!

    7. There's a distinction to make between between personal racism and willingness to acknowledge racism in society, neither of which implies nor contradicts the other.
