Soros, Deep State and Alt-Left on the March

Here’s an analogy I’ve been thinking about to apply for understanding what happened in C’Ville and other places recently: fracking in places like Oklahoma, or even natural earth quakes, can make present and new fissures in the land wider and deeper and consequently, much more dangerous. The bigger the fissures and cracks they make, the more lethal.  So I have to hand it to George Soros, as he has, with his diabolical genius for subversion, figured out, I think, the formula for radically amplifying psychological and moral fissures in the collective psyche of the American people. His brilliant strategy? Latch onto and financially supported alt left to attack alt right in a big way, using dupes and paid agitators to help eliminate US historical monuments and key cultural artifacts. Note what Pat Buchanan says:

“In Durham, North Carolina, our Taliban smashed the statue of a Confederate soldier. Near the entrance of Duke University Chapel, a statue of Lee has been defaced, the nose broken off. Wednesday at dawn, Baltimore carried out a cultural cleansing by taking down statues of Lee and Maryland Chief Justice Roger Taney who wrote the Dred Scott decision and opposed Lincoln’s suspension of the right of habeas corpus. Like ISIS, which smashed the storied ruins of Palmyra, and the al-Qaida rebels who ravaged the fabled Saharan city of Timbuktu, the new barbarism has come to America. This is going to become a blazing issue, not only between but within the parties.

For there are 10 Confederates in Statuary Hall in the Capitol, among them Lee, Georgia’s Alexander Stephens, vice president to Jefferson Davis, and Davis himself. The Black Caucus wants them gone. Mount Rushmore-sized carvings of Lee, Jackson and Davis are on Stone Mountain, Georgia. Are they to be blasted off?  There are countless universities, colleges and high schools like Washington & Lee named for Confederate statesmen and soldiers. Across the Potomac from D.C. are Jefferson Davis Highway and Leesburg Pike to Leesburg itself, 25 miles north. Are all highways, streets, towns and counties named for Confederates to be renamed? What about Fort Bragg? On every Civil War battlefield, there are monuments to the Southern fallen. Gettysburg has hundreds of memorials, statues and markers. But if, as the left insists we accept, the Confederates were traitors trying to tear America apart to preserve an evil system, upon what ground do Democrats stand to resist the radical left’s demands?  What do we do with those battlefields where Confederates were victorious: Bull Run, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville?

“Where does this all end?” President Trump asked.  It doesn’t. Not until America’s histories and biographies are burned and new texts written to Nazify Lee, Jackson, Davis and all the rest, will a newly indoctrinated generation of Americans accede to this demand to tear down and destroy what their fathers cherished.”

This will inevitably amplify or fan emotional/moral and unresolved fissures in people everywhere, and therefore provoke terrible ugliness and darkness that was restrained to come out right into the open, manifesting in mass violence and physical conflict. In coming months and years, this destructive process will become all-consuming and very, very divisive. The kinds of rancor and conflict that has occurred between people due to Trump’s election is going to become stepped and much more pervasive.

But I would go further than Buchanan. Tearing down civil war monuments is only the beginning, really a preface, to what’s coming. The kinds of people who support destroying Civil War statues and more are the same people who want laws to permit mentally ill men to share restrooms with girls and disrupt normal and age-old boundaries between genders, that is, impose a sort of Marxist identity politics and rules on everyone. They are the same people want to eliminate border controls that keep out riff-raff of all kinds and whose values (primarily the Wahhabi and Salafist religious values of new Muslim immigrants) are incompatible with American values.  The same people who aggressively seek to legally persecute, harass, subdue, restrain and incarcerate anyone who disagrees with them, the same people who want to cut off access to all alternative information and viewpoints on the Internet and other media to the masses. The same people who want to give rights and protections to what has been normally – over the course of centuries in all cultures – looked upon as degenerate and decadent, and so on and so forth.* (*NOTE – I don’t like neo-Nazis or identify with extremist rightism, but one does not have to have anything to do with these ideologies in order to find all or much of the agenda items listed above as repulsive and very objectionable.)  The American Soros Taliban and their Deep State confederates (what a useful word these days in this context!) and allies, are the tip of the spear for using violence and other tactics to widen and deepen psychological/moral fissures and create even new fissures directly pertinent to the agenda items listed above.  And as a result, living in America is going to become a whole lot more dangerous and lethal.

What is especially devilish about the cultural Marxists, is that they don’t have to use rational arguments and evidence to bring in large numbers of people to their side. They simply have to give attention to a sufficiently evil entity – whether correctly identified as such does not matter – and identify them with certain beliefs and ideas the left wishes to discredit. So of you want to discredit 2 + 2 = 4, make sure you broadcast that Hitler believed it was untrue, and/or that Mao believed it was untrue, and/or that Vlad the Impaler or Dracula believed it was untrue, and/or the Gestapo believed it was untrue, and/or Snidely Whiplash believed it was untrue, and many other people will agree 2 + 2 does not = 4, because they don’t want to be known as those who believe something everybody knows is believed by evil people, as it implies anybody believing it is evil, and many will believe they are evil for this reason. And who wants to be thought of as evil?

So normal and objective people try to offer reasonable counter ideas or objections to ideas that are dubious, such as leftist identity politics, or that tearing down civil statues is destructive of accurate historical awareness or wrongly judges men of a different era out of context, etc. But for Soros, the Deep State, alt lefties, they respond to this by loudly proclaiming neo-nazis (and other clubs of bad people) believe these things. So JEEZE, if f’king NEONAZIS believe it, then DAMN, it MUST be wrong!! You don’t even need to argue it when neonazis believe it! So this is a concise and almost elegant tactic for the alt left to short-circuit any logical and constructive thinking about issues they don’t want questioned or analyzed, to minimize the risk that rational, standards-based critical analysis concludes in rejecting ideas the alt left wants propagated.
