Another National Embarrassment to be Ignored.

I have referred to the Left’s (read: Obama)use of Orwellian non-reason many times here at Street Politics. Here are some earlier examples.(Reference 1) ((Reference 2)What leaves me gob smacked is the glee with which so many people pretend to believe the nonsense and how many more simply shrug their shoulders and permit our American Experiment to be perverted by those who employ such non-logic.

This morning we had the opportunity to see the American version of un-knowing things being exported to Jolly Olde England by an incredibly self-righteous Barack Hussein Obama. In a joint presser with England’s amateur head of state, he discussed terrorism (ineptly), Earth Day (a monumental annual farce) and explained to the little English people how they are better off remaining in the European Union.

One may reasonably agree or disagree on whether Great Britain does benefit from membership in the EU. But only BHO can stray so far from reality as to say that being in the EU magnifies the United Kingdom’s influence in the world. This is the Orwellian untruth, the antifact. All the EU has done is drag the United Kingdom into continental economics on a level harmful to all the stronger, smarter member nations. The UK was one of those superior nations. It has heavily watered down the unique influence, rebuilt by Thatcher, that the London enjoyed prior to joining the Union. All UK policies, especially in the area of foreign affairs are overshadowed and sometimes diminished by the influence of the EU. Certainly, it can be said that membership in, and the influence of, the EU has damaged the UK and other formerly great nations by the glorification of rampant immigration of neanderthals from Muslim countries. The cultural and economic damage done with these policies may be irreversible. Surely, they will be generations in the undoing if Europe is to be restored to its former glory (pre-EU).

While lecturing our most important ally and abandoning reason in the process, Obama insulted them with a thinly veiled threat. He insinuated that trade with the US would be made difficult for the UK if they left Europe’s failed experiment in the balance of power. (The EU  is just the latest attempt at achieving this un-achievable misnomer. there is power and there is stasis. Power is, by its nature, a dynamic force. To try to “balance” brings the kind of results we see in Germany and Greece, as examples. Germany repeatedly pretends to be powerless while feeding less responsible, more corrupt countries. Greece is “awarded” imaginary and undeserved power by being carried by the EU. Germany hurt itself by not employing it’s true power in a positive way and telling the EU the spigot is closed. Greece continues it’s death spiral because no one had to take responsibility for righting it.

But this is the kooky club our president has, once again, embarrassed us over. He has insulted our friends in support of his socialists utopian ideas in the face of one such utopia’s naked failure. Thanks again, Mr. “President”.

Warping History for Ego and Political Gain.

If I believed in any type of spirit world, I would have to conclude that George Orwell was the greatest prophet of all time. There is so little left of his 1984 world yet unrealized.

Like all big news stories, throngs of Americans want so badly to insert themselves into the narrative, as if they were integral to the reality. Last week a racist nut bag killed nine people in a church in South Carolina. Within days, the nine were forgotten.  Real follow-up about the nut bag is forgotten.

The story has undergone mitosis and spawned deformed meanings at the hands of uninvited participants.  We now hear that racism still exists in this country.  To that, one can only say, well, no shit!  But Hillary, the most obnoxious of anti-intellectual interlopers says that institutionalized racism is still a problem, and says it in context of the nut bag having killed those people.   The nut bag evidently owned a Rebel flag.

This is, of course, total bullshit. In a country where the largest and most racist employer (the federal government) has strict quotas and point rigging in favor of minority hiring, where private companies no longer care who you are so long as you enhance their bottom line, where public figures are easily ruined for the least missteps on the subject of race, you can no longer honestly say that racism is institutionalized. You are free to lie about it in order to inspire hatred between races for your own political gain.  That’s what Bill Clinton’s sex partner from the early 1970s was trying to do in order to take advantage of the nine dead people.  But she is not entitled to her own facts.

But there is also another malformed message growing out of this incident.  It is not new, but it is reinvigorated now.  We are trying to un-write history.  Historical events that offend our fragile sensibilities are now to be expunged from visibility.  Flags, we are told, must be eliminated. And it is being done by people who know almost nothing of the “history” they are trying to erase.*  We want to tear down monuments that represent our past, good and bad, that are a part of our national conversation, and de-memorialize historical figures.  Where there is a statue of a historical figure that doesn’t represent everyone (little secret: no memorial does or ever will) tear it down.  Only keep memorials to people who never offended anyone. This will accomplish what?…forgetting that bad stuff? Well, what better way to see that very history repeated?!

Hell, if you want to un-write the positive contributions of slave-holders (Jefferson, Washngton, Jay, et al), why not just un-write slavery?  No one in this country can say they experienced it.  So why should we ever acknowledge its existence.  It’s bad, so let’s just get rid of it.

IF YOU ARE SEEKING IMMEDIATE PART-TIME INCOME, THIS IS A TRUE NO-BRAINER


FDR was a four-term president.  He was popular at the time. More so than even Robert E. Lee in his.  He also exacerbated and prolonged the Great Depression much the same way our present wing nut has done to this economy. Save your breath, I won’t say the two are equal.  FDR was a much better president.

But FDR was also a fan of eugenics, not unusual at the time, but still a dangerous and ethically corrupt concept.  He was incredibly arrogant and as much a dictator as he could get away with being.  If you don’t believe me, read The Forgotten Man by Amity Shlaes. He was the king of dividing and subdividing the population for political exploitation. He was also in the top tier of the hated 1%.  We should definitely put him on the list of people to un-remember.

And JFK; total whore monger. The name of that airport has got to change.

You see where I am going with this.  No one alive has experienced slavery so to say you are traumatized by its mention is a LIE.  You are just trying to make a splash; maybe stroke your own ego. But we are a nation with a history. This attempt to make some of it go away sets an insane precedent that no thinking person would want to see.  Read 1984 by the great prophet, himself.

What’s more, we are once again becoming that which we say we reject. Who doesn’t remember our reaction when the mouth-breathing sons of pigs (Taliban and ISIS) blew up ancient statues and destroyed countless artifacts because they didn’t represent their stupid religion?  Why, dear reader, isn’t that justification to destroy images of the past?  I mean, this is religion we are talking about.  That’s supposed to be the most important of all things in this life.  Now, I grant you, the muslim religion is a concoction lifted from several earlier man-made constructs, as all religions are. But we are told that there is nothing more sacrosanct than the way one worships and the precepts they keep.  Shouldn’t we celebrate the way the sons of pigs proudly showed their devotion to allah with this childish vandalism writ large? This is spirit world stuff here!  Waaaay more important than the worldly tribulations endured by people 150 years ago.  C’mon!  Get some perspective!

Or should we say that the world would do better to clean up its modern day act by taking the lessons of history rather than trying to make history go away.

For the benefit of the ignorant:  This is the flag of the Army of Northern Virginia.  Thousands fought and died honorably under it.  Less than 1% of those people were slave owners.  They fought valiantly in a losing cause and on the wrong side of history.
This is the flag of the Confederate States of America as of 1863.  This is the emblem of a society that among other things wanted to preserve slavery. Coincidentally, it was also in 1863 that ending slavery became an official part of the Union Army’s pursuits. Before that the war was being fought to prevent the destruction of the established political system. In the long view of history (there’s that word again) I would contend that the war probably didn’t need to be fought.  But the politicians at the time were pretty darn serious about keeping the lion’s share of trade in the north.  Can’t have those dirt scratchin’ southerners setting up foreign trade and competing with the North now. …And, oh yeah, that slavery thing is bad too.
 
So if you want to hate a part of our history so badly that you want the symbols un-remembered by all the other proles, at least get it straight what the hell it is you hate.
